Receiving Season 1 Cards?

Postby Muskox » Fri Dec 06, 2019 9:41 am

I just received a full pack of Season 1 cards. Anyone else getting this bug? Personally, I consider it a win :)

There is a 1% chance of you getting a single Season One card, therefore making it a 5% chance of getting all 5 cards as Season One, I think that's how math works, idk.
No this is not a bug.

Really? I was under the impression that it was no longer possible to pull S1 cards. It's the first time I've seen a single S1 card, and to get five all at once seems rather unlikely.

Go check the News page, it implies that S1 cards can still be pulled, just rarely.

*checks News page*

At the end of the preview period, all newly opened packs will contain Season Two cards. Almost all packs, anyway. You never know when an old card might find its way into production through some manufacturing snafu. But like 99% of the time: new cards.

Well, there it is. I was mistaken, and stand before you humbled. Must've skimmed that last paragraph without fully comprehending. Good to know. Thanks for the info.

I know a few of us are trying to pin the true percent but I believe it's less then 1%

I read that as self-deprecating humour to cover a potentially buggy process, rather than an announcement that 1% of new cards would be from the earlier season.

I would agree however when you get an s1 card not currently in an auction it's the entire pack is s1 not just one or two cards

Nope, It doesnt work like that. (And also 1% chance is pretty much a joke). You can get them again from pull when someone trading S1 cards.

No, that's not how the math works.
Assuming that any one card has a 1% chance of being S1:
The chances of getting all 5 S1 cards in a pack is 1% x 1% x 1% x 1% x 1%, or 0.0000000001.
The chances of getting at least one S1 card in a pack is 1% + 1% + 1% + 1% + 1%, or 5%.

So either you've hit the jackpot and you should go and get a lottery ticket like NOW, or it's a bug.

It is neither when a pack comes out with s1 cards it happens because one of 2 reasons

Case 1: someone is selling/buying a s1 card currently on the market then the thanks to TCALS or the "Trading Card Anti-Laundering Service" this stops people from doing free transfers left and right

Case 2: you get lucky and pull a s1 pack. In an s1 pack all of the cards are of s1 all other rules still apply meaning the nations must be alive to pull the s1 cards

One of my puppets got a full pack too, I can't remember which one.
