Will there ever be a Third season of trading cards?

Postby Ozeanreisende » Sat Aug 27, 2022 6:38 am

Ive noticed that season two was in 2019 but im wondering if the delay is just from covid (somehow affecting the internet) but will there ever be a third season

I feel confident there will be. Otherwise, why am I collecting all these cards?

Yes, but we don't exactly know when. Rumors say that the cards have actually already been designed and coded into the tech admin's NS testing sandbox, it's just the revisions to the minigame mechanics itself that is holding it up.

Maybe the obsession caused by the cards isn't exactly a positive in the long run.

I'd hope so as Max's novels are on the positive side of compelling.

Don't be such a downer Benevolent, you can't be all like "Boooo cards" at the same time as being placed 8th in most valuable decks with only 999 cards.
In fact, your deck has only 1 card valued at JunkValue, which you are inflating as we speak.
Which makes your deck a rather unique deck come to think of it.

You can't act all high and above the game at the same time as being rather involved in it for the past 4 years.

If you think cards are such a bad thing then give away all your cards, or delete them and or let your cardholding nations CTE. That would show everyone you really believe what you are saying, rather then just trying to appear above the common card player.
But don't come in here from time to time with holier than thou mentality about cards when you are part of the very problem you rail against.
Cards don't get inflated in a vacuum. And gathering the amount of bank needed to inflate cards isn't done without playing the market or large card farming operations.

Now get down off your highly obsessed horse and face the music. First, stop talking down to everybody with whom YOU disagree. So you've posted your noise as you wish, ironically hypocritical as it is. Congrats.

Facts: I have never scripted anything. I never participated in the TACLS debacle. And those few who did abused the balance and health of the game. Y'all drove off vast numbers of players. And btw, i don't plot against other players on discord either. I feel bad for you bc these things are part and parcel of your mentality. And yes, i also have freedom of speech and will exercise it to some extent. But don't expect me to waste much more of my time addressing your rant.

Me? Well, luckily i got into the game on it's second day with a regional farm (not a card farm) built years before there was any daily card game. It kills you i was there at the beginning, functionally able to pull a lot of now valuable cards. That's where my bank is mostly derived. And I come and go as i please, not out of habit. When it begins to feel like a habit, i take a hiatus. Sometimes as long as six months. The last three years my play has been rather sporadic, unpredictable. That's a healthy mentality. Players do need to deal with this if playing cards becomes an obsession. Please don't feel threatened by that idea. It's a better way to thrive long term. Mmm-kay?

Finally, i do admire some of your card collections. Very nice. I have some too. :hug:

It isn't Max's call. Max pretty much leaves the site to run itself, and pops in occasionally to promote his latest book.

I thought it was going to happen sometime after the 2021 April Fool's event, which made me assume that they would include banners in S3 cards, but it's been a while since that happened. This year, I've been assuming that it's been delayed by the war. The COVID theory makes some sense to me, too. Then again, maybe a Season 3 was never actually planned at all...

As I've said before, I [still] think that the delay is because they're still deciding how to decouple receiving cards from answering issues and won't launch S3 until they've done that first.

Easiest way to "solve" that is to make it that you get say .05 bank for every hour, which stops if you don't collect it for 24 hours (So would have a hard limit of 1.2 bank).

The only way you can get cards in future is by buying packs.

1 bank for a pack of cards.
2 bank for 3 packs of cards.
3 bank for 5 packs of cards.

Users can then decide if they want to spend bank to buy packs of cards and have the chance of pulling better cards, or to save their bank and try get cards they want off the market.

I'd also go further and add the following new additions -

1 - Those that are over capacity aren't able to get new cards, or buy them on auction until they go under cap again. For those currently over any excess bank they currently have would be automatically spent to increase their cap until they can no longer afford it. If they are still over cap after all the excess bank has been spent then the cards that are over cap are junked at junk prices until the cap is met.

2 - Each auction would be for one card. So no being able to buy 2/3/4/5 copies of the same card at the same time, or being able to sell 2/3/4/5 cards on the same auction. Also a stop to being able to both buy and sell a card on the same auction

Ah so new.
here another guy who loves to used puppets, love to use transfer cards, because I SAW you, using transfer and selling some cards to yourself, claiming that they want to stop transfers. a bit like its good when you do it, its bad when others do it. the only word I got to define that attitude is Hypocrisy.

Frisbeeteria will not implement 1, stop asking that. A guy with over 28 000 cards, telling everyone they cannot own more then 500 is the very definition of hypocrisy, and he would strongly affect the credibility of the Ns Staff if ever he decide to do that.

and you can forget about 2, This is just annoying to everyone.
