RE: Waka Spiritblade Next Steps

Hey @bladesong, I understand the frustration. Two things I'd point out though, first the game did clearly state how many were going to be printed ahead of time. So while one blockchain's demand was white hot, the other was stone cold. I think a big chunk of that is our platform has the demand (naturally), and that demand was satiated after the 1st sale. While the 2nd half was hoped to bring in new players, that of course didn't materialize. I don't think anyone was screwed over, but I do think it was a lesson that won't be repeated in the future.

The 2nd point is this game has in the past done a great job of providing great promos. I remember when you could buy all the ALPHA Kickstarter packs you wanted and get special bonus cards to go with it. Now that deal looks like a steal, but at the time people were complaining that it sapped all the demand. Same thing happened with the Untamed presale, at one time the Chain Golem was being treated as a throw away card because it was "over-produced" (or that's what the people burning them were saying). The point is that while this promo might turn out to be not very good, this would be the first time that would be the case if so. In other words, maybe your lesson learnt is right, but it would be unique relative to history.

Some people bought regular foil Wakas on the secondary market at way more than $1500. Some gold ones at way more than $7000. I think promo card sales should never ever be split up with a time interval in between as the secondary market will establish a price in that interval.

I agree with this and hopefully its one of the lessons learned by the team.
