Developer Update for the Week of January 25, 2023: Gold Card Back Edition!

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:

This week’s edition comes after the announcement of the addition of Gold Card Back Reward. If you haven’t read about the new Series Downgrade System and First Edition Badges, make sure to check that out!

In this edition, we get answers to what the Devs think is the most underrated deck, will past seasons get gold card backs, and does the Dev team play a lot of Snap themselves! 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

Q: If you cannot get duplicate split variations, can alternate designs of the same card be locked out of splits? For example: I have base Angela with foil and Rainbow Tone Flare. Can the Chibi Angela not get this variation?
A: Stephen “You can get the same combo on multiple variants”

Q: With gold cardbacks introcuded this season, will you be adding gold border to past season card backs like Cosmic, Symbiote, and Wakanda seasons?
A: Stephen “We are not planning to retroactively make them for previous seasons”

Q: Do you plan to add more Dan Hipp varients? I like them so much and plan to collect them all!
A: Stephen “Yes he’s awesome to work with!”

Q: Can variants be pulled without having the base card? I have the signed Nick Fury variant without the base card, and I just got another variant from a collectors resereve.
A: Daniela “You can play variants without having the base cards!”

Q: What is a card you believe is underrated and is being slept on?
A: Stephen “Not a card but I think people sleep on move decks. It is a pretty consistently solid deck”

Q: If you get a S5 card variant before the base card, and then get the base card when it moves down to S4/3, will the base card still be First Edition?
A: Stephen “Yes if you acquire a card through any method while it is series 5, then all future versions of that character (splits and variants) will have the first edition badge”

Q: Why do all bundles cost 20% more in the German iOS version compared to the steam store?
A: Stephen “It’s based off when and how the platforms add in taxes

Q: When will we receive the gold card back version via inbox?
A: Stephen “After season end”

Q: A couple of weeks ago, I asked whether the players who had been dealing with the progression bug and losing progress since December would get compensated and the answer was yes. Any timing updates on the compensation distribution?
A: Stephen “We have already contacted the affected players. If you were not contacted please reach out to support on discord and/or in-game.”

Q: Does anyone at Second Dinner play multiple hours a day?
A: Stephen “Yes most of us play quite a bit. Some people at SD even restarted when we globally launched”
