Let’s start with the main point. The Not Quite A Bird bundle is very bad in value. So bad, in fact, that you’d be better off buying similar content from the in-game shop than spending money on the bundle. This bundle has a Value of 0.12 Token per Gold (equivalent, for simplicity), a Progress Value of 0.4, a Cosmetic Value of 0.5 and a Total Value of 0.9. So you will pay 10% more by buying the bundle than if you bought a variant, 1,000 credits and an avatar (notional, at 350 Gold).

You may reasonably ask – then why would people want to buy this bundle? In addition to the cosmetic value of the variant, there is another non-obvious factor. Previously Second Dinner never added to a bundle a variant for a card from a Series higher than Series 3. This was probably dictated by balance logic, as being able to start playing a Series 4 or Series 5 card without needing to spend Collector’s Tokens could result in a negative experience. And even more so for lower ranks, since being able to “buy” a strong card by using its variant could be a problem.

Nevertheless, here we are and anyone who wants to, even right after completing the tutorial, can buy a Series 4 card for $30. And it’s not some weak card, but one of the best Series 4 cards, as the tier list suggests.

One of the best decks with Darkhawk is the deck below. It doesn’t have very many Series 3 cards, so being around Series 2 is enough to build a similarly strong deck. And if a new player picks up a free Mystique or Rockslide card from the shop, the power of such a deck will be even higher at the early Collection Levels. And for those who are already pretty high on the Collection Level, if they don’t have a Darkhawk in their collection, buying the Not Quite A Bird bundle can help them build such a strong deck.

Also, because of the card’s power, you don’t have to worry about your variant lying idle in your collection – it’s very likely that at any given time there will be a deck in which you can use it.

4x Collection Level 486+ (Pool 3)
2x Series 4 Rare – Collection Level 486+ (Pool 4)
1x Starter Card

To summarize, we can say that this is a P2W bundle, judging by its positioning. It’s very unlikely that such a bundle will be needed by anyone who is following their own pace of Collection Level progression. But maybe someone will like the variant enough to pay so much money for such a bad bundle just to get the variant. Solely and only because of these two reasons we can give this bundle some stars and rate it 0.5 out of 5. Even if you want to spend a lot of money on bundles – you have plenty of much better options for that.


Rating: 0.5 out of 5.

  1. Good article, as usual, BUT there is one point it should be clearly stressed out: by buying this bundle to have access to the card, you are not only P2W, you are supporting P2W practices that are against you. This particular card should be Series 3 by now. It was withhold 2 months in Series 4 exclusively for being a good card. If you buy the card, they are winning money by doing it, and of course will keep doing it.
    Kirallas, I believe you should include this in the article. Is crucial info for an informed decision about the only reason anyone would buy this bundle.

  2. can’t agree more. unfortunately i love the variant :/
    still i won’t buy it because of the P2W aspect. i hope many do the same to show them, they can’t do anything.

    • The fact they’ve even slapped a “3x value” banner on this bundle is outrageous honestly. Value they ARTIFICIALLY CREATED by pulling the rug from under everyone who waited for Darkhawk to drop to S3.

  3. Cool variant/avatar, terribly overpriced, starts a concerning P2W precedent of an even greater power creep at low ranks which might negatively impact the experience of newer players who don’t ‘whale out’, and features a card that’s created so much controversy since the whole Flexible Series Drop debacle. All in all, a lot of awful Second Dinner/Marvel Snap practices all packaged into one questionable bundle.
    Thus the rating feels absolutely on point (also a good write-up and fine insights as usual!).

    There is one more aspect to this that I don’t see being brought up – correct me if I’m wrong: should somebody who doesn’t currently own Darkhawk buy this, they can obviously start playing with the card outright. But then later on, they still stand a chance of pulling the base version of Darkhawk as their guaranteed Series 4 card from a Collector’s Reserve? Which would basically be wasting that slot and an added slap to the face.
    Or at least this is the behavior that we’ve previously witnessed when owning Series 3 variants but not their base versions – I remember how annoying it was to pull Nick Fury after already owning the autographed version, all the while missing a ton of cards; and I didn’t pay anything for that one.

    • Yes, if you buy this bundle without having Darkhawk, he will take up a Series 3 or Series 4 card slot in the future (depending on whether he drops in series or not)

  4. This is the beginning of the end for this game being anywhere near F2P “friendly.” The first shot was when they introduced the FOMO inducing time gated starter bundles with series 3 cards and the $100 Collector bundle.

    I also wouldn’t trust SD at this point to not just turn around and nerf cards, like Darkhawk, they just sold as bundles even as little as a week prior in an OTA update. And that lack of trust regarding game stability both mechanically and economically paired with these continual poor cash grab bundles to milk whales are really what is spelling doom here.
