You can get cards from:
a) Booster packs
c) Trading with other people
Each card has:
c) Type (item, person, game world, etc)
There are several different types of packs. They differ by rarity, rarer packs having rarer cards.
Blue. Not rare. You will see them rather often. You can get them by: Finishing a minigame (like, 33% chance)
Green. Rarer variety of the common pack. You won’t see them too often. You can get them by: Finishing a minigame (like, 10% chance) Buying them from Rob’s imports (Randomly appearing in the store’s stock) As a purchase bonus in other stores (When you purchase something, there’s a change you get a pack) Arcade (Randomly appearing as a reward) Catsacks
This sounds awesome! Maybe you are also able to sell cards to specific store NPCs and get Units in return? You get more units in exchange depending on the rarity of the card.
And you could also create packs by combining cards of the same rarity.
There are already steam trading cards on the way, wouldn’t we just be able to trade those?
And if you can buy booster packs from the stores, wouldn’t all the cards lose their value every time someone buys them? I know a lot of people with millions of GMC and if GMT had trading cards they’d probably buy quite a lot of legendary booster packs and make them more common.
You can get only a limited amount of steam cards. The number of different cards a game can have is also limited.
They won’t be always purchasable. Limited amounts would appear at random times. Plus, who would want to spend all his Units on cards?
Things that add more of a purpose to minigames are always good. I’ve always been a fan of RNG based things (such as card drops at the end of a heist in Payday 2) and I am actually pretty fond of grinding to get the one I want.
I support this. Now if we could just think of a really good use for the cards. Perhaps framing them for your condo? Just for bragging rights and whatnot.
I disagree with the unit bonus, since rich people could easily buy legendary cards from other people, and then use the unit bonus to get even more money. Also, having people gain more units from doing the same thing (just because of RNG cards) is not fair to everyone
