12 gold badges... it's certainly a possibility. People are UR this season with those sort of levels. I definitely think you could get Rare. Founding a region / becoming a delegate would increase the chances of UR a lot, I think.

I'm pretty sure it will stay as a rare or go up to ultra rare, but people want condemned for defending for some reason. If somebody tries to condemn me in the future and it passes, I can see my card as an epic or legendary, even if I didn't deserve a condemnation.

I'm pretty sure you'll stay at rare as a result of your founder status but lack of stat badges.

I don't see a condemnation for your nation passing anytime soon, but even in that instance I would anticipate an ultra rare status. See here

Seems right.

The Yeetusa wrote:I might be rare. I founded a region so that probably bump me up from uncommon.

Rare would probably be my best guess; however, when I was doing the S2 Ultra-Rare collection, I noticed that the newest 25-40 URs on my spreadsheet were Founder-Delegates with little to no other badges. So if nothing else is going for you by the next snapshot, it's still a possibility likely determined by the total number of nations at the time of rarity setting.

That's assuming nothing gets changed in how rarities are determined, too.

Dorab wrote:Right now I think I will be common and uncommon. I am also planning to write a SC resolution. If that passes how high will I get bumped up?

Idk, Borm did two SC resolutions and an issue and still only got UR. I know that SC/GA things help a bit, but I don't think they're the kind of silver bullet you'd imagine them to be. My guess is uncommon unless you add more or more valuable regular badges.


I agree with all of Refuge's statements here.


Seeing that the topic has changed slightly, I believe that I will most likely remain as a legendary. I can't say that with certainty, since I haven't done anything super significant or outstanding, but my season 1 and season 2 stats were both significantly worse than the current state of my nation. I guess it depends on what changes may be made in determining rarity for next season, and the weight issue writing/stats holds over rarity.

I think I'd either remain Ultra Rare, go up to Epic or just regress to Rare.
Counting on remaining UR, since the amount of gold badges and easter eggs I have is still the same.

I’ll either be common or uncommon. I don’t know what the criteria are, but I have gotten significantly larger since my last card (which was a s1, I didn’t exist when s2 happened) and I have joined the WA since then, so I’ll hopefully be at least an uncommon.

For my WA nation Guaylandia: Common to Rare. Definitely not Ultra Rare or higher. My most obvious achievement there is regional officer in a very small region and a few endorsements from that. I also have a lot of badges, but no gold. So the rarity determining bots likely won't see much. At best I'll have achieved enough by S3 to get Rare.

For my card farmers and inactive nations: Common. I don't see any reason why they'd be higher. Unless their stats get really good, in which case maybe uncommon.

For this nation: Common to Uncommon. I don't see it doing anything special enough to warrant a rarity above Uncommon. I would guess that forum and RMB posts don't count for much when determining rarity.

I can't possibly imagine how it would. Undoubtedly common, as there is hardly anything on this account.

I feel like the biggest risk you have is losing your delegate status. I don't really have a solid concept on how much that accounts for, but probably replacing it with eggs isn't going to adequately compensate for it alone.

The Cosmic Mainframe wrote:For my WA nation Guaylandia: Common to Rare. Definitely not Ultra Rare or higher. My most obvious achievement there is regional officer in a very small region and a few endorsements from that. I also have a lot of badges, but no gold.

I don't believe there is a way for RO status to impact a card's rarity. Depending on how many nations are involved at the next snapshot, I might expect yours to be common as well because you look markedly similar to how Sylh Alanor turned out. But it's likely going to be until next December for it to get set again and you'll almost certainly get to uncommon if you keep answering issues.

I'm also 90% sure I'll be downgraded to UR if I don't pick my founder badge back up. Higher rarities just have very silly bars for badge volumes.

I do not see any chance for this account to rise above its current rarity (i.e. ultra-rare).

For my primary nation (Destructive Government Economic System), there is a slight chance that it may become epic due to deck value being an intended rarity factor once Season 3 releases.

If I manage to get an issue published (which I'm working on now), then I'll likely found a region and hope for rare. My stats are a mess right now though — trying to get as many banners as possible.

Right now, perhaps a rare due to my Postmaster-General tag. Hopefully that'll raise to a UR before the time is up.

You have a SC resolution, and likely 2 by S3. Along with your existing GA one I think you'll get to UR by S3 esp if you keep answering issues.

Most probably, yeah. I do have a few more Issue drafts in the works - I'm hoping to get at least 1 more published soon.

I suspect issues will be reweighted in S3 - they were guaranteed minimum UR this season, but WA resolutions are much harder to write and didn't guarantee anything more than Uncommon.

It's just speculation, but I do think there's a high chance we'll see those reversed next season, where Issues will come with less of a guarantee and WA resolutions will be weighted much higher.

I hope not, then that reduces my chances of making it to Ultra Rare. :(

I had only one 1% badge during S2 which along with WA, made me uncommon. With 10 easter eggs, many more 1% badges, a top 100 in deck value and possibly an issue, I think I'll be Ultra-Rare.
