    Default Foil Cards - say what?

    Ok, so I log into game after being out of town for a week, and apparently the new rage involves "foil" cards. Like, all the cool people need to have them.

    So I start asking around:

    Q: What is a foil card?

    A: It's a regular card that's all sparkly.

    Q: So what, what else does it do?

    A: No man, its really cool, they have all this sparkle stuff in the back ground.

    Q: I repeat, who gives a shit, do they do anything more than regular cards?

    A: No, but they trade for at least twice as much, because everyone wants them.

    Whiskey tango foxtrot? They don't play for more, or do anything different, from regular cards, except the friggen background sparkles, yet they are suddenly worth twice the trade value of regular cards?

    Are you people smoking crack? Why would you pay more for a foil than for a regular card?

    they are rarer, and in MTG they also were worth much more than the normal cards especially the foils of the staple cards everyone wanted

    . . . they are rarer, and have virtual foil, but they don't do anything to improve your game.


    And then?

    This is exactly what my reaction was. I could see having a bonus for having.. say.. 3 foil on the board = 1 damage bonus or something along those lines.

    but until something like that happens.. no ty foilies.. DO NOT WANT ><

    Foils = cards to trade for the non-foil and get more cards out of the deal.

    Yeah, I remember in MTG all the really leet people had full foil decks.

    It's just a show-off thing.

    That reminds me, in MTG if you collected the whole set they would mail you a box of real cards. I wonder if such an offer will ever exist in LoN.

    I see no reason for virtual foils being worth more.... if you want all foils just screw up your video settings enough to make it look foiled ><

    Flames now has 0 support from anyone. No TTH, no Zam (although I'm not sure how much there was), no SOE, no one.

    Ok let me put this in perspective....


    Q: What is a porsche?

    A: It's a regular car that's all fast.

    Q: So what, what else does it do?

    A: No man, its really cool, they can go all fast.

    Q: I repeat, who gives a shit, my toyota already goes the speed limit?

    A: No, but they go twice as fast, so everyone wants them.

    Aftermath Revival!
