PostSubject: Cards' worth based on appearance?!?   Wed Oct 24, 2012 6:41 pm

A while ago, my friend got a Heidemarie card. I congratulated him on how lucky he was. A few weeks later, I saw that his card was still at level 1. When I asked him why he didn't level her up, he said he didn't really want to USE her in the game. He just got the card because, and I quote, "She's cute! What other reason do you need?" Yeah, my friend is a pretty shallow person, I guess...

Anyway, what about you guys? Have you (known someone who) worked hard to collect a card solely because of its appearance? Wink

Guilty with Sonia...lol so many SSLs. /shame

I do actually use her though. Too bad her sprite is pretty bad.

Her sprite looks like a cheap hooker. No offense.

I don't do it myself, but there are definitely people who get cards due to looks as opposed to usefulness or whatever. And I myself find some sprites really cute/cool, but I typically aim for good stats.

I wonder how Gremory's value will be affected -- she's a pretty bad 5* and there will be 190 of her, but, well, she's pretty hot.

Gremory = tit-tease.

That being said, this event is waaaaay more brutal than the Venus colosseum.

I don't think I'd ever trade/buy a card solely on appearance. There are cards that I might pay a little more than average for if I really like the art/sprite, but this is for cards I would also use.

I wouldn't say it's shallow to buy solely on appearance though. It's a game and people can play however they want, I don't judge. =]

I think I'm more attracted to rarity than appearance. If it's rare, cute and useful (cough Heidema-Hack, gasp!), then I'll sure pay a lot more than a common card.

I'm speaking like I have a lot to trade, but since it's not the case, I'll first try to get 5 useful 5*, and only after that, I'll try to get the cards based on rarity/appearance.

I feel like people can't trade off their Meg because of her appearance.
And her sprite is downright hilarious.

I admit, I searched relentlessly for Laura partly because of her appearance (but hey, she has some pretty good stats, too). Even if I got a cute...erm, nice looking unit such as Laura (ahem), I wouldn't leave her in the metaphorical basement to collect metaphorical dust.

I think it really is more of the fact of her usefulness and her rarity rather than her looks, truth be told. If you look at Aleister, she's inferior in comparison to Laura in almost every aspect (this is assuming that attack speeds are accurate). Low cost, fairly high attack, etc. means that you can potentially use her for tower events, quests, and colosseum events although I notice she tends to be one of the slower ones in the colosseum.

There's also the issue on her conversion as well.

The cards I really like based on appearance are top prices for fires of apocalypse 2 and 3. So it's like saying they're of out of my league. Fencer Diana and Professor Tina

I'm not entirely impressed with Vivienne as a card, but her art is so cute! Would collect for that reason.

I like, and do use, big hair Kiki Very Happy

While the event cards' art is nice and all, I am rather partial to the no-nose art by Hideo Minaba :3

and you would be right.
Stat wise she is a pretty solid poison unit, but I played hell finding someone that would accept a level 100 meg just so I could get a freaking level 1 Kyo. Nobody wants her!
If Meg was in a little metal bikini standing in one of those "boobs and butt" poses half the girls do I could have probably got all three 5* Princess cards for her.

Kiki is not even as good a unit as Meg; her micro dress sells her by itself.

I absolutly hate Meg's sprte. I just cant help but think that the devs must have seen Family Guy for the first time ever and thought "Now how can we Fantasticize this?"

I actually like Meg. I was trying to buy her as my first 5*, but had to buy a princess because of the event...

And the way Meg attacks still make me laugh from time to time.

I personally like a little bit of both - how a card looks and what the stats are.

Let me give an example: Paige from the Witch Series. Her stats are decent for a 4* but that art is, in my opinion, some of the worst the Fantastica art team has put out. Her face is a disaster drawing wise and her pose leads more to be desired. Her sprite isn't exactly all that great either. But I'm still more likely to use her because she has decent stats and Knockback is a big plus.

Then there is Benedetta, the Monster turned Unit from the Dragon Tower event. Bene has the WORST stats for a 4* quite frankly. Her land attack doesn't even reach up to 10,000 -- she's practically a high tier 2* card! Not to mention her special skill is Attack Boost for Male Units, which is nigh useless to me because I don't have many male units (mostly because fantastica doesn't like releasing many male units these days *COUGHCOUGH*) I may sell her if I can find a buyer (Tulia and Luce are way more popular) but for the most part I'm not going to use her. But she sure looks pretty at least.

I say do whatever you like at the end of the day. My opinion is, looking at designs from 1* to 6*, is that Fantastica team reserves their best designs for the rarest cards to make them more desirable. The 1* cards have very basic designs, 2* and 3* it gets better, 4* has interesting designs, 5* raises that up a little, but the 6* cards are incredibly flashy looking and generally have very nice art work to boot.

I like Abel less after seeing her sprite, but that doesn't make her any less costly to acquire.

I've seen some really great sprites fighting the AI in the KoG event, but they are always 5 or 6 star units.

Really enjoyed this thread, thanks guys.

Yeah well. I caved to a Sheryl with no skill instead of being a good girl and saving another 50 te or so for a Joa. :/

Love both the art and sprite!
