While perusing through the 600 card collection, I noticed that there are quite a few different sets through which cards are sorted into: Basic(starter cards?), Standard (basic, standard & elemental boosters), Professional (pro boosters), Achievement (achievement rewards), Exclusive (campaign rewards) & Gift. The latter is where my question lies. How does one get those cards? I’ve only seen a few cards (Arrowthrower & Demon of Nobility)… are there more?
your missing special =P, Btw some exclusives are also from lab,
gift cards like demon of Nob and orc Warlord , And the unimpressive swampy guy, forgot his name, are the 3 unique reward from the $ boxes,
The rest like arrowthrower and such, arent available anymore as they where gifts for beeing around at a specific Festivity days.
Hope this helps a bit =)
Developers – can you please let newer players obtain these gift set cards? Several give a distinct advantage in combat.
**And you completely undermine a purpose of a ccg – a collectible card game if you can’t collect some of the cards!**
You could make them obtainable by proving loyalty – ie if you hit level 5, 10, 15, 20 you obtain the cards. For those that already have the card, maybe gift them a random rare to ultra-rare card to compensate.
Oh okay, that clears things up. Heavy Calv and Arrowthrower are really, really nice cards.
Prizes seem okay if accessible to all – otherwise they’ll still be inaccessible.
Thank you for the reply. I’m curious why the admin removed two posts here? O.o

> There are only two gift cards – Heavy Cavalry, and Arrow thrower. The rest cards are marked by “Gift” incorrect, we will fix this. They may be made available in the future as prizes, as I know.
**When in the future? What exact day? And as you know – so you’re not certain this will occur?**
It’s been a month since this post came up. I keep running into these cards every 3 days or so as well.
I’m not going to put $$ into a CCG until I am sure I at least have a decent chance to get each card. Otherwise with the strength, artwork, and caliber of these gift cards, that’s favoritism and simply unfair.
FullThrottle1, I am not the game designer and I cannot promise you that this or that card will be made purchasable at certain day, sorry. If I promise you and then it won’t be done – this is unfair, you’re right.
The game designers work on the game development constantly. There are a lot of thing to do. I hope these gift cards will be available for purchase soon, too.
Gift cards give a good advantage, but I think there should be a way that someone can’t just spam all the gift cards over and over, giving a too unfair advantage. I would agree if it allowed players to be able to obtain cards they missed because they made their account too late. Maybe a single option where you can only buy gift cards that you don’t have? Or something simpler. But I like the idea of the cards returning in general, hate one of the views as it may come back.
I think the best solution is just to make those cards available again as a miniset.
I have never once heard of a single player wanting limited-edition cards to stay limited edition. And Bytex would make more money by letting us buy them again. Seems like a no-brainer.

> and what about “alpha dragon” – neutral 3 crystal 3 attack 6 life – Flight. Gift set – Promo only for testers during November 2011!!!
That’ll make a lot of players NOW unhappy and upset. Like ME. :D
Night Assassin was the reward for CW (being in the first 5 clans of june era).
At least it wasnt a single day event reward, so, imho, less unfair than others.
As for Alpha Dragon, i see no reason to complain. I’ve joined the game after alpha, so i havent that card, but i think it’s simply nice they gifted something special to their testers. It isnt even a game changer.
I guess though Bytex will release all the gift cards again, like they have done the past year. A huge pack with mini-sets and gift cards for a considerable amount of ounces, that many will find too expensive. I wish Bytex would find another way (and i’ve suggested something in the appropriated topic), but as a mindless collector i’m fine as long as i’ve access, and all the players have access, to all cards (and again, i’m not referring to alpha dragon or night assassin or the new special card, if there will be one, rewarded for CW).
