List of Cards that are likely to get upgrade

52 posts

My assumption is that all or most of rare, unique, and legendary cards before Awakening packs are the ones that are going to get upgrade.

Though, as you all know, some cards in Awakening packs and after that still need some boost in order to be useful (like Joltrek Skiff has).

Anyway, here’s the list of cards that I think will get upgrade.
Hopely Devs will come up with some nice boost for each of them so we can ACTUALLY use them in our deck.

P.S. I didn’t know where to find the reference for this (if this has been somewhere in the forum or fansite, links in the comments would be appreciated).

For some cards, I thought for awhile before deciding to include them in the list.
I think they were Lance Rider, Adamantite Armor, Dracorex, Empress, Plasma Field, Mobile Base, Steadfast Cannon, Nexor, Aquatic Epicenter, Disposer, Missile Barrage, Stinger, Acidic Burst, Razgoth’s Heir (especially since this can be summoned by some legendary card, but you all know Vapor Wing got buffed anyway), Ravenous Dredge, Kilgore, Scarab, Blight Tainter, Hope Mason, Bridge of Destiny.
They seem pretty good themselves, and they are still useful in many of the raids and missions.

Maybe I am biased but I included the cards on the lists based on
1. Whether they are from pre-awakening packs
2. Can be used and have seen many times on faction wars, arena, or standard tournaments for the past 2 months or not

I made this thread for the sole anticipation on which cards are going to be upgraded and as a reference, and for those who were wondering like me.
I know many of the lists will get a debate, especially the ones that are still…kinda useful on their own but not as great as they used to be.
Your ideas are all welcome here.
Hopely there will be some similar ideas so Devs will work on the ones that need immediate attention and know which ones people think that can be put on waiting list for more powerful meta on the future.

Good list, for the most part. (I really don’t think MB needs an upgrade…)
I’m sure Synapse already has their own secret list though.

Wow…by looking at the stats, for some of them I am really surprised that they actually came after awakening packs
While updating, I had to decide whether to remove some from the list because they came recently, and some of them I had to refer to the fansite news to check when they came out (cause by just looking at the stats, mentioning ‘meta’ itself…omg, I just can’t put this emotion into words alone).
No wonder I haven’t seen them ever played in tournaments, arena, and faction wars
For about 1/3 of the recent promo cards, I suppressed my urge to include them on the list
On the other hand, cards like Retribution (which came just before Occupation pack was released) I just had put them in the list…
I usually don’t like debate or criticism, but for this sets, please leave whatever you think is right

i think so too
some of them like mobile base, nexor, i can’t really say whether they need boost at all when i just refer to the card itself
but i rarely see them played these days
maybe they just need some other cards to get them working…well, just like someone commented, i’m just posting pre-awkening pack cards for now

I wanted to include Heracles, Longshot, and Crypt Mercenary on the list but decided not to.
Heracles and Longshot used to be must have cards, they were considered so OP, but now days…I still see Heracles, sometimes…
Though, I guess they are still usable unlike babies on the list above.
Stealthy Niaq used to be so useful, now I don’t see them.
As you can see, many of the cards on rewards lists have a lot of potential to be useful again or become OP.
Many of them just need some small boost like 1-2 more HP/Damage, 1 reduced timer, or one additional skill…unlike many of the cards on Promo set that needs some major skill replacement.

Umm… Adamantite Armor? I don’t think so considering it’s still pretty prominent meta. If it were to get upgraded it would end up either being virtually no better than it is now or OP.

I didn’t include cards from Awakening packs or after that (other than some Promo cards).
You’re welcome to list them out.

Lance Rider do not need to be upgraded because it was already buffed.

Holyshit. You’re right.
Lance Rider – health increased from 6 to 7, pierce from 2 to 3
