‘Marvel Snap’ scraps Nexus Events over monetisation controversy

    Marvel Snap developer Second Dinner has introduced that it is going to be cancelling Nexus Events with an “emergency patch”, following backlash over the cardboard recreation’s strategy to monetisation.

    In a press release posted at this time (July 29), Marvel Snap‘s chief improvement officer Ben Brode acknowledged backlash surrounding Nexus Events (by way of Dexerto), which locked playing cards behind a loot box-style system with very low odds of getting the cardboard you need.

    “We’re still working on what our future monetisation/new card plans might look like, but we know for sure they’re not Nexus Events,” introduced Brode. “We were able to sneak out an emergency patch to disable all future Nexus Events once the current one ends on Monday.”

    “This patch also reverts the change to credit bundle purchases that came with the Nexus Events update – you will again be able to use gold to purchase multiple credit bundles in the shop each day,” added Brode.

    Brode went on to say that eradicating Nexus Events is the “first step that [Second Dinner] could implement quickly,” and mentioned the studio is continuous to work on options to Nexus Events. While nothing particular has been mentioned, Brode shared that he hopes extra data may be supplied “early next week”.

    So far, the Marvel Snap neighborhood’s response to Nexus Events being eliminated has been largely optimistic. “The fact that they can recognize what happened and scrapped the whole thing is amazing. Couldn’t ask for a better outcome,” shared one fan on a Reddit web page discussing the adjustments.

    “Glad they’re scrapping that complete garbage of an event. Hopefully future ones are drastically different,” one other remark reads.

    “I am cautiously optimistic, my trust is far from earned back, but this is (hopefully) a big step in the right direction,” posted one other participant, whereas a separate publish says it’s “still scummy that they did it in the first place though. Hopefully their next idea isn’t another shitty lootbox.”

    Marvel Snap was introduced with a trailer in May, which showcased the sport’s multiverse-spanning roster and alternate card artwork kinds.

    In different gaming information, Post Malone has challenged followers to an £82K Magic: The Gathering match, and can fly one fortunate participant out to duel him in Los Angeles.
