Q: What are relative rarity levels?
A: The relative rarity levels (Common, Uncommon, Rare, etc.) are assigned to collectibles based on several factors, but the main defining characteristic is how difficult it was to acquire the card in question at the time of its original release.
Q: What are the relative rarity levels for special Sets and Collectibles?
A: Rarity levels are as follows (listed from least rare to most rare)
- Super Rare
- Epic / Iconic
Q: What are the relative rarity levels for Base Tiers?
A: Base Tier rarity levels are as follows (listed from least rare to most rare)
- Base Tier 1
- Base Tier 2
- Base Tier 3
- Base Tier 4
- Base Tier 5
- Base Tier 6
- Base Tier 7
- Base Tier 8
- Base Tier 9
- Base Tier 10
Please note that the Base Tier 1 - 5 can be acquired from the majority of Packs in the Store and can be earned from Fusion.
Q: What are the differences between the two rarity groups listed above?
A: Base Tiers 1 - 5 refer to the collectibles that you encounter in almost every pack in the app. These collectibles will have similar images and designs, but they may have different color variations at different rarities. Base Tiers 6 - 10 are considered specialty variants and may be earned via the Fusion feature or in specialty packs.
Legendary, Epic, Super Rare, Rare, etc. refer to special collectibles from unique specialty Sets. As these collectibles have unique designs and often times are more desirable than Base collectibles, these two rarity structures are kept separate.
Q: How does Collection Score work?
A: Collection Score has been completely re-worked, each card has an assigned value based on a variety of attributes including the Rarity group, the year it was released (older collectibles become more valuable year over year), Max Print Limit (aka: Card Count Limit, CC limit, Limited Edition count, LE, etc.), among others.
Q: What are Groups?
A: Certain Sets are released in multiple groups over time. These groups are often referred to as Waves or Series.
