    Cards Unbound: A New Card Collection & Upgrade System

    ”With this update, we introduce a significant overhaul to how cards work. We have a more detailed blog post available on the changes, but here’s the TL;DR:

    • Essence is gone. Yay!
    • Paladins is even more free to play. All Cards (Basic and Legendary) are now free and immediately unlocked, and can be levelled up by collecting duplicates.
    • In the new over-the-top Arcade mode, you can play exactly how you want to play. Just build a loadout of your five favorite Cards -- no point limit restrictions.
    • Ranked Mode is now more balanced and competitive than ever before, with all Cards unlocked and set to Level 4.”


    • Full development blog and commentary on the changes here: https://www.paladins.com/cardsunbound/
    • Essence has been removed from the game. Players with Essence will have the currency converted to Gold at a 1-to-1 ratio. And all previous Essence rewards have been changed.
    • Level 1 of all Cards (Basic and Legendary) for all Champions are now free and immediately unlocked
    • A new Legendary has been added for each Champion. Like all other cards, all players will be granted these new Legendary Cards at Level 1 for free.
    • Cards and Legendaries can now be upgraded from Level 1 to 10 by collecting duplicate cards. Cards and Legendaries come from the Radiant Chest and a new Champion Chest, which will drop champion-specific Cards and champion-specific Legendaries.
    • Cards will auto-upgrade when the requisite number have been collected. There is no currency required to upgrade cards.
    • Champion Chests are unlocked free via Champion Mastery and for first wins of the day with a Champion (up to maximum of 5 FWOTD Champion Chests per day).
    • Champion Chests are purchasable for 7500 Gold, allowing players to more easily level up cards on their favorite Champions.
    • Capped maximum Gold earned per day at 10,000 (corresponding to roughly 100 games played per day). This cap is raised to 15,000 Gold while an Account Booster is active to allow players to gain gold from roughly the same number of games played.
    • Players who have already unlocked Cards (Basic and Legendaries) will receive those Cards at Level 4.
    • All Champions now have 3 default loadouts to accommodate different playstyles. Custom loadouts can still be created.
    • All new players now have one starting loadout with all cards set to Level 4, and a Legendary also set to Level 4.
    • With the introduction of the new card system, one starting Level 4 loadout, and two additional default loadouts, players’ specific custom loadouts have been reset and will need to be recreated.
    • Quick Play Queue is new mode replacing Casual Queue. In this Queue the player can build a deck with no point-limit using the Cards he or she has acquired. Up to five Level 10 cards can be used in a loadout.
    • In Ranked, all player loadouts will have Cards and Legendary automatically set to Level 4. If your loadout contains cards higher than 4 they will be set to 4 in Ranked. If your loadout contains cards lower than 4 they will be set to 4 in Ranked.
      “This ensures that Ranked is all about player skill. There is no longer any grind for Cards in Ranked.”
    • Custom Match creation has a new Loadout Style option. Loadout Style of ‘Competitive’ will set cards and legendaries to level 4. This is the option that will be will be used for esports tournaments.
    • Due to the size and scope of this change, PTS will run longer than normal. Please play during PTS and give us feedback!
    • Upon initial release of this system there will be no Crystal (premium currency) purchase option for Champion Chests. “We want to make sure the free player experience is well tuned before introducing microtransactions.”
    • Below are the required number of duplicates needed to level up a card:




    New Queue setup

    • All Arcade and Siege queues (except Custom) will grant bonus rewards for First Win of the Day and Daily/Special/Lore Quests.
    • Bonus rewards for First Win of the Day Quests
      • The current bonus reward rotation is set to Champion Chests (up to 5 each day, with limit of 1 per Champion).
    • Arcade (formerly known as Casual)
      • All modes in Arcade use the Card Level that players have earned by collecting Cards (Level 1 to 10)
      • Queues:
        • Unbound Siege
        • Payload
        • Onslaught
        • Test Maps
    • Siege
      • Queues:
        • Unbound Siege
          • Uses the Card Level that players have earned by collecting Cards (Level 1 to 10)
        • Classic Siege
          • Sets all cards for all players to Level 4
            “Players who wish to practice for Ranked, but without any risk of ELO loss, can use this queue.”
        • Competitive
          • Sets all cards for all players to Level 4. If your loadout contains cards higher than Level 4, they are set to 4. If your loadout contains cards lower than Level 4, they are set to 4.
            “This is the Ranked Siege mode. There is no longer any grind for Cards in Ranked. It is 100% about player skill”


    New Rarity: Limited

    “We’ve had Limited items in the past -- such as Invitational 2017 Fernando. These are items available for a limited time only, and their limited status will now be reflected as a new rarity level.”

    New Match Lobby presentation

    “We are releasing an upgrade to our pre-match lobby presentation in this patch! We wanted to make the Champion and team presentation better integrated with the fantasy setting and Realm of Paladins -- and more visually appealing. This change allowed us to bring back a closer presentation and intro animation for the Champion you choose to play, and gives us a way to better showcase the Champions and their individual personalities moving forward.”

    5 bug fixes. 5. Out of the tens or maybe more so that I can think of off hand. Glad to see they decided to do something different instead of polishing the game, again

    What a fuc*ing joke!

    Look at this!

    --Ruckus

    Cards
    Extended Magazines
    [Advance] Advance generates 10/20/30/40/50 Ammo.
    Increased ammo generated per rank from 5 to 10.
    Proximity
    Reworked
    [Advance] Activating Advance grants 4/8/12/16/20% damage reduction for 3s.
    Legendary Cards
    Aerial Assault
    [Advance] Advance gains a 3rd charge, standing still causes Ruckus to jet upwards, and the cooldown of Advance is reduced by .5/.75/1/1.25/1.5s.
    Now reduces the cooldown of Advance.--


    So if you spend enough money to get these 3 cards to level 5 in casual, your dash with Ruckus will have 3 charges, each with 1.5 seconds of cooldown AND each time you use your dash, you reload 50 bullets for free and gain a buff of 20% damage reduction for 3 seconds, which means you can keep dashing and keep the buff the entire time, your won't even need to reload.

    Now if you just unlocked Ruckus and can't buy chests to get all the duplicates you need to level up the cards in the new system coming next patch, then you have the same 3 dashes, but with only 0.5 of reduction in your dash cooldown (making it 2.5 seconds of cooldown), wil only reload 10 bullets per dash and only receives 4% of damage reduction.

    F*** this bullsh*t!

    I have to ask. Why do we keep doing these MASSIVE balance swings. How do you expect to balance a game if every few months you make drastic balance decisions.

    I love the idea of additional legendaries, i hate that they implemented them with so many other changes as well. Just ASKING for trouble, just like when legendaries were first introduced, and just like the projectile changes patch. This new system is going to lol stomp on new players considering the match maker. Which is ironic considering they did this to lure in new players.

    I'll give credit where its due though, at least they are extending PTS because of it
