You can be a bit more positive than that ;)

Right now, I agree with the assessment that you'd be uncommon. There will be boosts for DV and there seems to be some sort of top 100 and top 10 boost for endos, but I'm not clear on the latter, and the former may not be feasible if you're not into farming. If you want to try, the first is at top 250.

They give you gold badges, and given that easter egg badges show up on cards, I assume they do affect rarity.

If they do, I imagine it'd be just like any other gold badge then. I'm just saying, cards I've seen without gold badges or a bunch of bronze ones don't seem to go higher than common. I'm willing to be proven that they do, of course.

You think it’s insta rare or UR

Nah. I do think the higher boosts like top 10 or top 50 could guarantee rare though.

Yes, a gold badge for cards (and easter eggs) presumably act like any other gold badge. And that's my point, gold badges raise rarity :P

They do affect rarity, but not very much. It's just listed as "low" on the dispatch, but I believe that Easter eggs have far less of an effect than gold badges.

According to Minskiev, authorship badges stack, so I assume the same would hold true for Easter eggs. If that's the case, then collecting a ton of Easter eggs could still have a noticeable effect, but it is unlikely that just getting 1 or 2 Easter eggs would significantly affect rarity.

yes, but if you have say 5 or more, then it'll probably affect rarity a lot.

I would assume it depend on the number of nations who have easters egg. if many have easter egg, there is nothing unique to have 1. their effect are probably very low

If my card gets anything less than Ultra-Rare, I'm gonna riot.

Just kidding, but it'll be pretty disappointing since I've put way more effort into this nation than any of my others so far.

I'm with Fauzjhia in that it still probably won't be much. If a dozen eggs (I believe that's around the maximum?) is equivalent to one GA/SC author badge, I'd be surprised.

You have a decent shot for sure! I wouldn't be surprised if it still ended rare, but I think you could make it.

Your 5 gold badges make you at least uncommon, probably rare. If you can crack top-250 in Cards you might have a shot at UR.

Rare, most likely. Granted, your influence is pretty high, so I wouldn't necessarily be shocked to see you get UR, although it seems like quite a long shot at this point.

Bro I was just about to get the 1% badge for tourism. But then these new stats it and they made the change to tourism and now instead of it being a 2% badge which it was before and almost 1% it is now a 5% badge and it’s so dumb. Big sad

That depends if I even still exist by the time S3 comes out. I'm probably gonna be a low rarity card which would be good cause I could buy it off someone for a low price.
