PSA: We heard you. We’ve changed the way Donations & Trades work with Max Level cards.

Now Latest Talk From Reddit to Our Facebook Page

TL;DR You didn’t like the new Max Level donation system and thought it sucked. We agreed, and changed it. You now earn gold for each Donation again!

With the December Update, we introduced Star Levels and a new way to donate Max Level cards. We removed the ‘overflow/stored cards’ so that once you hit Max Level with a card, you don’t receive any or store any.

Instead, whenever you gain a card that you have at Max Level, you don't receive it, but you get Star Points if you are King Level 13 (SP) or XP, plus Gold.

Here is a quick explanation of the changes we made, using a RARE CARD as the example that you receive for your Max Level card.

OLD DONATION SYSTEM

  • You get a card that you already have at Max Level
  • This card gets added to your ‘overflow/storage’ for that Max Level card
  • You donate cards from your ‘stored cards’
  • You gain +50 Gold and +10XP

Net gain: +50 Gold +10XP

DECEMBER UPDATE DONATE SYSTEM

  • You get a card that you already have at Max Level
  • It gets converted to +50 Gold (and +10 SP if King Level 13)
  • You pay 100 Gold to donate a card (as you have no longer have stored cards to donate)
  • You get +50 Gold and +10 SP/XP

Net gain: +10 SP/XP

NEW – PATCHED WITH MAINTENANCE

  • You get a card that you already have at Max Level
  • It gets converted to +50 Gold (and +10 SP if King Level 13)
  • You pay 50 Gold to donate a card (as you have no longer have stored cards to donate)
  • You get +50 Gold and +10 SP/XP

Net gain: +50 Gold +10 SP/XP

Even though paying to donate a card in the ‘DECEMBER UPDATE DONATE SYSTEM' didn’t actually cost anything (you broke even), you only gained Star Points or XP – no Gold.

With the new system, instead of just breaking even, you get Gold – just like the old way. You still have to pay the Gold upfront however – as you don’t actually have any cards to trade. The Card Goblins who print the cards don’t make ‘em for free! It’s the equivalent of buying a card from the shop and donating it, except you actually gain Gold in the long run with the new system.

We have done the same with Trades, and halved their cost so that you break even when Trading – but gain a bunch of Star Points in the process if you are at King Level 13! Nice.

This change is now live in the game. Thanks for letting us know how you felt – we hope this new change makes more sense for you! Feel free to leave us any more comments below, and enjoy the December Update!
