Default Card Album?

So.. is Card Album essentially a storage bag for cards? And why is it not permanent?

I believe you get one free with the VIP purchase (the package) but idk how long it lasts.

I'm curious about what happens when the item expires. Does it vanish? Or can you just no longer add cards to it?

You can no longer access your album which means you can no longer access the cards stored in it.

since when? whenever i tried i was able to get all cards out of it after it expired. I just couldn't add new cards. but the card album is completely irrelavant for the game and a example for a good, not game breaking cash shop item so i can't understand why people are whining about it...

Default Re: Card Album?

I wish it was the other way around and we can put in cards but not take them out with an expired card album.

Basically, it just boils down to bag space and how every f2p game out there loves to capitalize on them. "Quality of life" is one thing. It's another when you're not even halfway through max level yet and your bags and storage are full, and that's not even trying to hoard stuff; just keeping things like crafting mats and potions (or cards in this case). I don't know if that's the case about RO2, but just saying.

When I played seaRO2, it wouldn't let me access the album portion of the UI after it had expired, but it's entirely possible that I could be remembering incorrectly or didn't realize something at the time. It's also possible that they could have modified the process as I haven't touched it in quite a while.

idk, I only made it to ~20 but I had no issues with bag space. I had 2 bags full, but 2 empty Medium Mags. Storage was empty, too. Blacksmith Profession.

My girlfriend had Artisan, though, and she says she had tons of bag space issues.

Bag space has always been a premium in F2P. It's not that bad for us, though. The best bag you can get in Valkyrie Uprising is like 8 slots normally (very rare), but there's an 18 or 20 slot bag that you can only make by crafting a Cash Shop item.

Default Re: Card Album?

on Korea's RO2, you can only insert cards into the card album when the card album item is enabled (purchase from cash shop, given during an apology event..etc).

You can always pull cards out of it though, even if card album is expired.

I ended up pulling out most of my repeat cards to experiment with card combining to get silver and gold level cards.
