Hey guys! It’s time to let you know about Rebellion’s second wave of new cards. We are looking at a total of 14 cards, and I’ll repeat what I said in the Weekly Post: All of these cards will be common rarity, and act as some of the workhorses of Rebellion. In this thread I’ll elaborate on that. These cards have two specific groupings, and I'll insert spoiler tags previewing one card from each group.
The first group is the Defiant line of character cards: If they are removed from the game, they cause special effects. For example the Defiant Engineer will give +1/1 to all characters you control when it is removed from the game, and the Defiant Hunter will temporarily give you +1 resource one turn after it is removed from the game. In the hidden spoiler tag below, mouse-over to see the Defiant Brute card for the Cult of Verore.
The second group is a set of common-rarity Overcharge characters. One of my favorites from this wave is “Speaks With Wind.” It’s a 5-cost 12/12, and if I overcharge it I can get 2 resources refunded to me for that turn. On turn 5 I could drop this from command and toss in Fight, or Brings Life By Passing for example. In the hidden spoiler tag below, mouse-over to see the Morningstar Accelerator card for Flame Dawn.
So when are these cards going to be available to the public? Technically, right now. All 14 cards are available on the PBE test server, and we're going to run a few test sessions with player compensation included. We're going to look at written feedback regardless of whether you play-test the cards, but we hope you'll come give them a try anyway and experience their effect on the game first-hand.
Wave 2 should be available before the end of the month on the live server, after they've had a few weeks on the PBE test server.
