Hello all! Welcome back to this week’s breakdown of what’s happening over on the Marvel Snap official Discord! If you want to stay up to date with what’s coming and what answers developers have for the community, make sure to check back here each week! For further information on what’s coming to Marvel Snap, check out the Development Roadmap:
In this edition, we get answers if that Killmonger translation is a hint of a upcoming nerf, will Galactus and Thanos get first edition titles, and are the devs happy with the number of players hitting infinite! Answers to questions will be prefaced with the developer who said it. Answers and questions may be slightly rephrased for more clarity and ease of reading.
This Week’s Questions
A: Ben Brode “We are working on global matchmaking so we are hoping to make the distinction irrelevant”
A: Ben Brode “We are tracking this but they don’t seem to have much affect (positive or negative) in how many games folks play on average. That’s just data, though – not the only thing we look at as we make decisions. Payer feedback is a big component as well. (And our own experiences with the game)”
A: Ben Brode “If it’s a reserve that would have had a variant in it, the other items in that box just become more likely to drop (in this case it’s the cosmetics box, so you’ll see more titles and avatars, at least until we add more categories of cosmetics). If it’s one of those purple “Mystery Variant” rewards on the season pass or something, the fallback is 200g.”
A: Stephen “Yes we will do more login events in the future.”
A: Stephen “We will keep adding new cosmetic options over time”
A: Ben Brode “We do, but unlike League, we need approval from the platforms before we can patch and so our patches are by necessity a bit less reliable. Also we sometimes find last-minute issues and need to delay. So we can’t communicate an exact pace. But our goal is to patch about every 4 weeks right now.”
A: Ben Brode “I don’t believe so – I think it’s just a mistranslation.”
A: Stephen “Right now you can some variant avatars from season pass, bundles, and events. We will make more available in the future.”
A: Stephen “Yes it will be applied to all variants and splits for that character going forward if they are acquired while they were a Series 5 card.”
A: Stephen “They will both have first edition badges when acquired”
A: Stephen “We plan to add Mythic variants in the future (custom vfx, VO, sfx) but no time table right now when that will launch. We have no plans right now to put Ultimates on sale or downgrade them.”
A: Stephen “It does not remember right now. It’s solely a priority thing. We are a small team so have to make tough calls on features at times”
A: Ben Brode “No plans for disabling the badge. Also the current plan is not for it to obscure the art of frame, but rather be elsewhere in the zoomed in card UI. So you can see it when you zoom in but not on board.”
A: Ben Brode “No, the matchmaker cannot see your deck, nor does it use machine learning”
A: Ben Brode “Maybe Professor X? Haha”
Stephen “Shang Chi for me. I love playing big cards so he has taken many cubes from me haha”
A: Stephen “No plans at this time to bring back previous bundles but we will keep adding new ones that will have awesome new variants”
A: Stephen “8 – Red, Blue, White, Purple, Green, Rainbow, Gold, and Black”
A: Stephen “Yeah of course. hit up impulse139 on Twitter”
A: Stephen “The amount of players reaching infinite is lower than we want right now. We are always iterating and ranked mode is an area we will continue to improve over time”
