App overrun by whales who buy every pack before u even have a chance

Halfway through the season I can’t keep up with the whales who must spend 100s if $ every week special cards come up and they are gone in 10-20 minutes even if you have the money to spend you can’t beat them. They coullde and conspired to buy these cards as soon as they come out giving no one else a chance to get them. You need to limit buys to a certain amount of pulls for the first hour to allow ALL Players a chance to get the cards or pre announce when these cards are coming out. If all you want is 30-40 traders controlling the game then that’s what u have here . In addition this whole no physical cards is a joke I really won’t spend much money to get fake cards makes no sense to me they show u these beautiful cards for 10-15$ but u can’t own them and then of course the whales come and u can’t get it anyway. Got to hand it to Topps though this must be a great money maker selling nonexistent cards. Oh and to the 30-40 players that control the game and win every contest. There should be a white only contest like u did in Huddle that gives everyone a chance to win or relegate the higher level to certain contests or make contests for certain levels. Starting to drop off here probably not going to spend anymore money because it won’t be enough. Going back to upper deck parkhurst where I can collect tall boy cards and get the physical cards they are great looking

Fun to start , sad overall

After a year + of playing I am thinking of giving this up. I love hockey I love and breath hockey. However, when I save 500 k of coins waiting for one card or one team card to come out then 95% of the time don’t get it.... it starts to get frustrating. You rarely get cards you want , even if you save up. You can pay to get a better chance but it gets costly fast. Oh there are also diamond only packs (pay only) to get them.

I rather pay initially for this app and get to enjoy it more , or have a 5 dollar a month thing even to make it both affordable, fun, and still supports a company . You will feel like you get something to start form the game then it just stops. No more progression without real money and even then you may not get what you want.

After so much time invested until they allow you to expand your collection with a chance of getting things some more , then I will not be investing in this app anymore ... I am sorry I gave it over a year ...

Developer Response ,

We are sorry to hear about the frustrations you've had with Skate! We understand how frustrating it can become when you hit a streak of bad pack luck and can't seem to pull the card you're looking for. Of course, we encourage you to hit our Trade Feed and see which other fans you can trade with to help our your collection. We appreciate the honest feedback and hope you give Skate another try, as we've got some exciting things up our sleeves for this upcoming season!

Add features from BUNT

I love all of the Topps card apps and have several that I use daily. One thing that concerns me is how much more attention Bunt gets then any other app. Bunt has a prize wheel, batter up game, and card fusion for your duplicates in the play section.

No other Topps app has all three of these extra game modes and it is very troubling.

These extra game modes make me visit the app more consistently throughout the day to spin the prize wheel and get extra coins from batter up. They have tried to implement this in Kick and Huddle but they are a poor rendition of Bunt’s rewards. In Kick the prize wheel only gives you base cards from MLS and no special or unique inserts like Bunt. Huddle is similar in that it only offers base cards from the prize wheel, nothing special. Meanwhile Skate seems to be all but forgotten and since there is no incentive to visit the app I only open it once a day to get daily rewards, which is the only way to make coins.

Like I said earlier, please make all Topps apps have a standard for gameplay instead of favoring one over the other. There are definitely very easy ways to implement the same game modes across all apps, it just needs a little creativity.
