Following the presentation of this month’s card balance changes a few days ago, we now have deployed these changes together with bug fixes. Today, the 10th of February, we updated KARDS with card balance changes and bug fixes.

We also thank all of our engaged players and the KARDS community in general for reporting bugs and discussing the game balance.

If you want to get involved, please join us on Discord!

Card balance changes

A total of 10 cards have been updated, three were toned down in power, three got more powerful, and 4 cards were changed for strategy reasons. Please read the following dev blog for all the details and background info: Card Balance Update: A New Year and A New Plan

  • New: Your HQ gains defense equal to the number of all cards on the battlefield.
  • Old: Cost 3
  • New: Cost 4
  • Old: 1 Attack, 3 Defense
