What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“KARDS is a WWII-themed digital collectible card game. Being in Early Access allows us to collect feedback and react to the community in time. This makes it easier to deliver a high-quality release that is fun to play, well-balanced, and provides long-term engagement.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to end Early Access in Q2 2019.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“For the release version we are working on a Draft Mode and Gold Cards. We will polish existing features and fine-tune the gameplay balance. Additionally, we will further improve the artwork, visual effects, audio, and we will work on the game client performance.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access build contains relevant game mechanics (deck building, card deployment, card activation, frontline) and high-quality graphics that are close to the release version. The release card set is complete to >90%. Other basic systems, such as matchmaking, achievements, and seasons, are also implemented. Server operations and client stability are in a good shape. The Early Access build has gone through a closed-beta period, the feedback and overall user experience was proven to be already very good.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“KARDS is and will be permanently free to play. During and after Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We plan to monitor feedback on a daily basis and interact with engaged players. We have a Discord server (https://discord.gg/kards) as well as FB and Twitter presence (https://www.facebook.com/KARDSccg/ and https://twitter.com/KARDSccg) where we also collect and discuss ideas and suggestions.”

Early Access - Developer Thoughts #1

With our first week of Kards Early Access almost down the road, we thought we would share more of our thoughts we have gathered over the week. We also want to thank you for your phenomenal welcome, amazing feedback, support and great ideas we have received - thank you!

Let’s have a look at the road map and our plans, which are strongly influenced by your feedback. We structure them into major and minor points.

== Major points ==
  • The match-making system allowed matches between players of considerably different strength. We have updated the match-making system so that the difference in strength between players is now smaller. Additionally, new players are now within their own band for the first several matches.

  • Player strength and ranks. The current rank system and its visualization in battle isn’t an accurate measure of player strength. That has caused some confusion and raised concerns about unfair matches (e.g. Private winning against General, while that private might be actually Field Marshal in two other nations) and severe unbalance.We are looking into some good ways of addressing this issue.

== Minor points ==
  • We want to improve card descriptions and review popups on cards as they have been reported to be confusing in some cases.
  • The game can be too hard in the beginning (first AI matches) and we are doing some adjustments to the AI.
  • The deck building process is not as intuitive as it should be and lacks some info.

== Other ==
  • We see a lot of good feedback and great ideas from the community! This is amazing and we are super excited to see this great interaction. All your feedback is being discussed and taken into consideration during our daily team discussions and game design planning.

Keep an eye on the patch notes and further news! If you want to know more about Kards and participate in lively discussions about the game, or provide us with direct feedback then please also join our amazing community and the Kards developers on Discord!

Please let us know if we have missed anything - there is lots more going on behind the scenes. Again, thank you all so much for the amazing first week.
