Living Roadmap for KARDS

We are excited to share some of our plans for KARDS and to give you an idea about what's coming your way: Enter the LIVING ROADMAP!

This Living Roadmap is in its first version very high level. As development proceeds, we will update the roadmap as often as we can and make it more granular, refine the exact dates for feature deployments, etc.

As this roadmap is a living document, we will regularly update it, so keep an eye on this news section!

Please also keep in mind that everything on the roadmap might (and probably will) change, but we will let you know if/when it does!

Early Access Build 0.9.21 - Draft Mode

This patch is all about the long-awaited new Draft mode.

New Features
  • A new game mode is now available: Draft

    • A Draft is a set of up to nine matches against other players. You can play these matches at any time.
    • During a Draft, you play with a deck built by you from random cards.
    • You build a deck over several rounds after choosing your main and ally nation. Each round, you pick one out of three card stacks presented to. You continue picking cards until your deck of regular 40 cards is completed.
    • The Draft ends when you have either won 7 matches or lost 3 matches.
    • Once the Draft ends, you collect your rewards. Draft rewards become increasingly better with more matches won during the Draft.
    • One pack of cards is guaranteed as your reward (even with 0 wins).
    • Admission to the Draft costs either 15 gold or USD 1.95.

  • Read more about the Draft mode in the full dev blog on Discord or a high level overview on Steam.

  • The deck builder has been improved and updated to match the look and feel of the Draft deck builder.

Audio and Graphic
  • Some audio effects have been updated.
  • The bomber attack animation shows the bomber flying a little lower now.

Bug fixes
  • When a card was discarded due to hand being full, their unit effects for leaving the battlefield are not triggered. Fixed.
  • The showcase card has gigantic dimensions when hovering over a card being played from hand while another was exploding/playing some animation. Fixed
  • Clicking on a board card doesn’t raise the card. Fixed.
  • Completed and claimed Achievements keep showing up on the end-of-match window. Fixed.
  • The AI using “Jade Unit” boosts enemy units in rare cases. Fixed.
  • The AI can place more than four units in the support line in rare cases. Fixed.
