The Collection Collection v2

Postby Giovanniland » Tue Apr 28, 2020 5:50 pm

The Collection Collection v2

Hello all! I am Giovanniland, a card collector, and I recently found the older version of this thread, by Ponderosa, which hadn't been updated for some time. So I offered to continue this amazing project, keeping the original collections and updating them along with adding even more. Here it is: The Collection Collection v2!

DISCLAIMER: All credit goes to Ponderosa for creating the original thread and allowing me to use the previous code and format. This thread was created with their permission to keep this project updated with the newest collections.

Examples of collections that will mostly not be featured here (unless you've gathered more than anyone else):
• My Legendaries/Epics/etc
• My Region-Mates

Examples of collections that will definitely not be featured here:
• My Friends
• My Favorites
• I'm selling these cards, come make a deal

These are perfectly fine collections. But they tend to have a personal, utilitarian purpose. The Collection Collection aims to host general-interest collections only.

For collections with Season 1 and 2 versions, I'll add submissions for the first 3 categories (Rank-Based, Volume and Nation-States Collections). For the other categories, if you own both of them and wish to have both featured, you can simply add the cards to the same collection.



Rank-based Collections: Legendary, Epic, Ultra-Rare, Rare, Uncommon, Common: these are the six card classifications. Sometimes, you may wish to scroll through the entire list of cards, looking for one to catch your eye. These collections strive to make that possible.

Season 1
Every Legendary Card by Koem Kab
Getting all of the 184 legendary cards from Season 1 requires a boatload of cash, an eagle eye on your bids, and most of all, a fleet of farm puppets to finance the collection. This feat has also been achieved by other collectors such as Luna Amore, Mikeswill, Vilita, The Tampa Bay Rays, Elegarth, Ballotonia, and The Northern Light.
Wop's Epic Collection by Wopruthien
A collection of all every 1,832 season 1 Epic cards, and the first non-legendary rarity collection to be completed. An epic feat indeed!
Pretty in Purple: Every UR by Karen Matheson (puppet of Refuge Isle)
Refuge is pretty close to the 5,498 Ultra-Rare cards she needs for a complete set, of which 4,658 were already collected!
House of Blues by Mara Jade-Skywalker
This collection holds over 11,000 of all 12,828 Season 1 Rare cards! Most cards yet to be added are ex-nations.

Season 2
Complete Season 2 Legendary Collection by Feu de Glace
Less legendary cards compared to Season 1, but still an extremely hard challenge to gather them all! This was the first complete collection, but other collectors such as The Northern Light, Mikeswill, Noah's Second Country, Ballotonia, and Koem Kab have also achieved the feat.
Season 2 Epics by Mediobogdum II (puppet of Mediobogdum)
Another completed rarity collection! Here's every single epic card of Season 2, a total of 1,681 cards. This feat was also achieved by Riemstagrad.
Power to the Purple: Every UR II by An Actual Hurricane (puppet of Refuge Isle)
The sequel to Pretty in Purple is completed, with all 5,045 Season 2 Ultra-Rare cards! It is currently the largest collection ever.
Season 2 Rares by S2 Rares Collector (puppet of Noahs Second Country)
This collection by Noah contains every 11,770 Season 2 Rare card except one!

All Seasons
All Legendary Cards by The Northern Light
Gathering legendary cards from one season is hard enough, now imagine every season! Here you can find any legendary that ever existed.
Every Common Card by 9003
9003 is the nation with the most cards in the world, with over 150,000 of those being of common rarity! However, they're still far from holding all common cards from every season, a collection that would add up to over 200,000 cards if complete.

Special Mentions
Wrong Season by The Cosmic Mainframe
Legendary cards are special for their rarity, but some of these don't have that prestige in every season. Here is a complete collection of non-legendary cards that had achieved that status in other seasons.



Volume Collections: These collections are recognized for the impressive feat of quantity on top of quantity. In order to make it into this group, you need an extremely large collection united by a single, identical property.
All is default by BuccaRuu
A gargantuan collection of nearly 20,000 default flags! As you might have thought, the Australian Aboriginal flag is by far the most common in the game.
Animals by Vylixan Artemis (puppet of Vylixan)
Whether it's a real photo or graphic art about animals, you can find over a thousand of these cards in this massive collection!
Cats by Nazbeth
Meow! Are you looking for cats? Nazbeth surely owns a lot of them!
CTE Cards by Charon Azrael (puppet of Racoda)
Thousands of cards from nations that are currently ceased-to-exist! Note the difference between CTE and ex-nations: a nation whose card is not an ex-nation card may have CTE'd, and it will not be reflected on the card; while an ex-nation card may have its respective nation refounded after the snapshot.
I AM THE EX-NATION EXTRAORDINAIRE!!! by Destructive Government Economic System
Most nations here have vanished by now, but are registered as cards. This collection has 19,000 cards from ex-nations, some being the only copy ever found!
Second Best Card Collection by Second Best Card Archive (puppet of Noahs Second Country)
This collection contains any card with a reference to the number 2 in their nation name.
The North Pacific S2 by The North Pacific Card Collection S2
This is the now largest regional collection, housing thousands of cards from the North Pacific! You can see other regional collections in this leaderboard.



NationStates Collections: These collections fit into a finite category related to the NationStates universe. It is possible to collect all these cards, but trying to actually join any of these categories? Good luck with that.
Bookends: First & Last Cards of Seasons 1 & 2 by Steampunk Ariel (puppet of Luna Amore)
Here are both copies of Testlandia, a very expensive card with ID #1, as well as New Sequoia and Greatian, rare CTE cards with the last IDs for their respective seasons.
GCR Delegates by ROM
A list of politicos and warriors, the powerful nations have earned or took the delegacy of the Game-Created Regions!
GCR Founders by Warzone Codger
Aren't GCRs founderless, you would say? This collection takes advantage of the fact that, while it wasn't possible to change the region in your Season 2 card, there was a 5-day timespan to change some features, including founder badges.
No Badges by I Hate Badges (puppet of Morover)
Here are cards without even one badge: no founder badge, no easter eggs, not even issue stat badges! Surprisingly, there are over 10,000 nations that fulfill this requirement, and you can find almost 500 of those in the collection.
NS World Cup Winners by Recuecn
The top athletes of the NS sports world, these nations have the honorable distinction of having won the NS World Cup!
Senior Residents by The Cosmic Mainframe
All nations in this collection have the same highest possible residency stat! They have never moved out from their regions ever since the residency stat was introduced.
The Sports Collection by Drawkland
Another NS Sports collection, but this time, any notable player with significant contributions is listed here.
Top 10 Card Collectors
by The Cosmic Mainframe
Here are the cards of the top 10 nations by Deck Value! Why only 9 cards then? One of the top 10 nations does not have a card yet.
Top 50 Challenge Ladder by NSC Potato HQ (puppet of Noahs Second Country)
These nations have the highest points at the Challenge mini-game, added for the 10th NS anniversary.
Top 100 Population by Ballotonia
At the time of the card release, these were the 100 most populous nations in NationStates.
We Even Have DEATed Ex-Nations! by Destructive Government Economic System
A hundred cards of ex-nations that, for one reason or another, are never coming back from what they did.
Commended: Season 1 and Season 2 by Samudera and Ballotonia
Here you can find cards of every nation that has been commended by the World Assembly!
Condemned: Season 1 and Season 2 by Samudera and Ballotonia
Much smaller this time, these collections contain all notorious nations that have done bad enough deeds to achieve a condemnation.
Delegates: Season 1 and Season 2 by Panpan105 and Panpan105 S2
Massive collections of World Assembly Delegates, nations that are strong enough to lead a region.
Firsts: Season 1 and Season 2 by Samudera and Pangurstan
An exclusive group of nations who have the highest stat in any World Census category, one collection for each season!
GA Authors: Season 1 and Season 2 by Auralia and Ballotonia
Here are the complete collections of every nation that has contributed a resolution to the General Assembly.
Game Volunteers: Season 1 and Season 2 by Ballotonia
Ballotonia has assembled a full list of the admins, moderators, mentors and editors that keep this site running.
Issue Authors: Season 1 and Season 2 by Ballotonia
Almost complete collections of all nations that have written at least one issue for NationStates! Another collection by Jutsa also includes co-authors.
SC Authors: Season 1 and Season 2 by Ballotonia
This time we look into the other chamber of the World Assembly! Here are most nations who have written a Security Council resolution.
UN Authors: Season 1 and Season 2 by Ballotonia
Last but not least, you can see all cards of long-time nations who wrote resolutions to the predecessor of the World Assembly in these two collections.


Theme Packs: This category is for collections built around a common theme. Buying up all the dogs you can find? That's a theme pack.
Note: as of 23rd June of 2020, this is now divided into subcategories to become more organized.

Arthouse
Abandon All Hope by Conqueror Worm
A horrifying collection representing evil, death, despair, pain, among other bad things.
Go then, there are other worlds than these by Christ Triumphant
This is a collection of the surreal and the otherworldly, a sci-fi adventure that pushes the boundaries of what we consider normal. In other words, the most inspiring science fiction and fantasy cards. The title originates from Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series.
It's better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb by Panther
Uprisings, rebellions, and revolutions. A cycle where the people rise to remove the previous authority, only to face rebellions some time after. This collection makes the viewer think about the multiple revolutions throughout history: whether they were minor, or they caused an impact on the entire world.
NationStates Art Gallery by Ngeaur
This is a real arthouse! The collection aims to represent different types of artworks and paintings. Beautiful, famous artworks from everywhere in the world, from ancient to digital times, are here at this virtual museum!
The heArtful Collection by Devil Heart
It's hard to get a grip on this collection. You know there's something that ties them together, but there's always an exception when you try to pin down a rule. The curator describes the collection as cards that are mostly hand-drawn, surreal, popping, or with arty abstracts. Furthermore, the author has also made a The heArtful Collection gallery S1, where all flags for these cards can be appreciated in full, without the card overlay.

Can you stan this collection of nations ending in "stan"? I can.

Wreath Flags by Giovanniland
Many different wreath flags! A lot of those are olive branches, a symbol of peace.

Geographical
As Gaeilge by Refuge Isle
A collection of flags with Irish names and mottos. The name literally means "In Irish."
Auriverde by Ordem e Progresso (puppet of Giovanniland)
Here you can find tons of Brazilian-looking flags! Fun fact: the collection name refers to a nickname of the Brazilian flag.

Over a hundred cards with the flag of the Basque Country, collected by a nation with the same flag.

Thanks for doing this Gio, this is awesome! I was going to mention my gif collection, but I see it's already up there! I'll let you know when I get both seasons in one collection; I'm only one card away now!

I particularly enjoy Ancot's collection of single-color flags, as well as The Soylent Green Party's "You Suck at Cooking" collection.

A good friend of mine made these collections, which admittedly violate one of the criteria for this list, but I think they're impressive enough to warrant inclusion.

You're welcome! I wish to keep this updated, and I'm glad people like it.

From what I see, you only have a Lazarus collection in your deck, and the OP says no regional collections.

Yes, I replaced some collections because the previous one of that theme wasn't the largest or most complete anymore, and GIFs was one of them. I'll update it when you complete both seasons.
Also, I wasn't expecting you'd link my collections, lol :) I didn't include any of them because 1. no regional collections rule, and 2. it would be biased to include mine but not any other. Of course the size factor highlights them (especially the season 2 version), but it's still a tough decision on whether to add or not, and for now, I'm not adding them unless a lot of people agree that it should be there.

Hi! This is really cool, thanks for reviving it!

Anyway, I’ve actually had my own collection of feline friends going on for a while now: Cats! :3

I can’t compete with Feline Masters, and I’m happy to see Alanis Star in on the game too, but just wanted to say I existed!

Thanks and have a nice day!

I think that such an expansive collection could be an exception to the rules here.

I concur - collections of small regions (like mine, lol) aren't worth including, but a collection like yours that's a thousand cards strong, or TNL's version for The North Pacific, has grounds for inclusion.

They are interesting indeed! However, I asked them if it'd be possible to gather all cards in one collection. Like I said in the OP, if anyone can do that instead of having S1 and S2 collections, it would be better.

Codger's "GCR Founders" collection:

I don't know how you'd classify it, but the collections tickles me and could probably be included somewhere. It's a nice curiosity.

^The GCR founders are good.

I finally finished my complete (s1+s2) gif collection! I'm so stoked!

Big shot actually did it a few hours before me but I don't think he's gotten around to putting them in a single collection

I have only managed to complete the S2 gif collections of Pg, D, and ABC123 cards... too late for me to make an attempt to complete S1.

Great that this thread had been taken up again... congrats to Gio are very much in order

First of all, I´d like to state, that I´m very glad (and thankful), that the "collection thread" has been continued (especially since my own collection is noticed here :blush: ).
But I couldn´t help, but find some of the noticed collections pretty outdated, as they seem not to have been maintained by their owners for months, thus stagnating; this might be because of the owners running out of space, lost further interest in specific collections, or maybe even decided to stay with "season ones" only. Also some are complete (without any sign for it) or close to this.
Therefore I propose, that these collections should be evaluated by someone (or anyone who likes to announce his own collection) and maybe updated/replaced by bigger/newer ones of the same theme or marked (as some already are) as continued or completed.
I also would like to encourage "theme or other specific collecting players" (and I do know for sure, that there is a whole bunch of them) to announce there collections here (and not to be shy about and wait, if someone else does so), regardless if originally was meant otherwise - because I guess, that otherwise we would miss many interesting and genuine collections (if not someone occasionally stumbles across and find them "showworthy").
And then, I also would like if some of those collectors would renew their postings in the forum and therefore participate more in the open market instead of silently collecting (how should anyone know ?), or relate on private farming or occasional gifts.

Hello! I'm pretty sure I reviewed every collection before posting the thread to update progress. I also removed some that didn't exist anymore, and replaced some who weren't the biggest/most complete in their category anymore. However, if you spot a mistake I left out, feel free to comment here.
I was busy these last days, but I'll double-check soon to see if I missed anything and add the most recent submissions such as yours.
New collections are added by submissions on this thread, but also if I happen to stumble across a collection theme that isn't included yet. If I see a collection that has its theme here already but is bigger than the current one, I'll replace too. I think all of those should stay, even if they're not being updated or are Season 1-only, as long as they're the biggest of that theme. I figure some of these owners don't use the forums a lot, but nevertheless their efforts should be recognized, if they build an unique collection.

Weekly Update!

If you didn't know yet, I'm planning to do a weekly check on all collections, to check if any ceased to exist, and such. Note that I have real life duties so it's not guaranteed, but I'll try to update it as often as possible.
In this update, I revamped the NationStates-themed collection category, adding different seasons to some collections. I also added a few collections that I either randomly found, or were submitted here (the ones below). Note, I'm looking for geographical, real world collections to include, since that category doesn't have that many entries. I'll be searching, but if you know of any large one, feel free to post!

and from the same person a really pretty one https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... card_vault

Added the second one! The first one was too small and ceased to exist, sadly.

I was thinking on whether to include this or not, but I guess it's interesting enough to get a place in the NS-themed collections.

GCR Founders is a novelty, but more substantial collection should be my puppet, Pursuit of Happiness' collection of emotions https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... _happiness

Interesting collection! Not very big but still unique, so I added it.
