Changes to Cards in the May 29 Release

Hi everyone. In the May 29 (PT) release, we won't be making any changes to cards' costs or abilities. There also won't be any new bans or one-card restrictions in Unlimited.


We’ve gone over data from high-ranking Rotation and Unlimited matches in mid-May and found the game environment to be quite diverse, with no deck archetype in particular holding an overwhelming advantage or usage rate. As such, we won’t be making any balance changes to cards in the upcoming update.

To maintain a great game environment, we’re always keeping a close eye on match data in the Shadowverse team. Whenever reducing the strength of cards by changing card costs and/or effects, we’ll boost the number of vials created when liquefying them. This includes both of our constructed formats, Rotation and Unlimited. In addition to the card changes we’ve made in the past and card changes targeted for Rotation, we’ll also designate cards to have a one-card restriction or banned in Unlimited if necessary.


Any future changes to card costs and effects will be announced in advance, and then changes will generally be made the next day. See below for the scheduled announcement and change dates.

Jun 26 (Announcement), Jun 27 (Change)

These dates are, however, subject to change. Even if there are no changes made to cards, we'll still announce that things are staying the same. If emergency changes are deemed necessary, we may make changes, specify restrictions, or specify banned cards outside of the above dates.

That’s all for this time. See you next update!
