WISHING TREE


Don't forget that SasuraUchiha's wish from last week (where players can claim 3 Member IDs from Lost and Found instead of the normal limit of 1 Member ID) has expired now!

LyAnn"Wishing everyone can take choice cards spelling SUMMER HOLIDAYS!" It's almost the end of Summer for me and maybe some of you as well but here's to what's left!! Only 2 per deck, though!

Admins"Since this is the last weekly update before the hiatus, we have a gift for everyone!" Pick it up HERE! If you want to take your choice coupons and/or cards later, just remember to do so before this update expires for you!!


DECK RELEASE


Like promised, today’s a double release!! Since we’ll be going on hiatus, I’m releasing every deck that was voted for in Upcoming Vote as well as all the decks that have been noted as being needed for a Box Set (and have been made/dropped off by today) for anyone who will continue to work on them during the hiatus, which is why you might see multiple decks from the same series.

One deck (komuginakahara) has not been made yet because I completely forgot about it but since it's a Spotlight Member-requested deck, I'm still including it in the release below because I'll make the deck later tonight and upload it. Sorry about this! Everything about this update is last minute in a rush to post it before midnight lmao... Uploaded!







You may take a total of 24 cards but no more than 2 per deck!
If using the Double Release Pulls coupon, you may take a total of 48 cards but no more than 3 per deck!
Donators & Deckmakers can take 1 extra card from any deck they donated and/or made (2 if they did both).
Those with the +2 Release Pulls Character Skill can take an additional 2 cards with no restrictions.

If you want to swap pulls from this release, feel free to use the #trades-and-pulls channel on Discord!
For random cards from the new decks, feel free to use the Update Randomizer!


COLLABORATION DECK RELEASE


As of me writing this update, the deck is not finished yet because I'm waiting on an image to be re-uploaded but once it has, I’ll upload the deck and it’ll show up below (the master badge and filler card are up in the mean time, though)! I’ll post an announcement on Twitter and Discord when I do so for now, please do not take any pulls/donations from it yet!! And uploaded!


Donators can take the card(s) they donated from the deck.
If your donation is the master badge, you can take any card from the deck as your donation.
The deckmaker can take 1 extra card from the deck they made.

NOTE:
If you want to take cards from this deck that weren't your donation, they will be included in the 24 (or 48, if using the "Double Release Pulls" coupon) cards you can take from this update's deck release freebies.


EVENT UPDATES


ANNIVERSARY EVENT: The second and third batches of Member IDs have been made! If you submitted one after the post time of the third batch then it has not been made yet but I’ll get to it ASAP.

The rewards for round 3 of Scavenger Hunt can be found HERE (will be posted after the update)! Since we’re almost at the end of the month, I won’t be posting a new round but I hope you guys enjoyed the game!! If you did, let us know as we may consider making it something permanent or at least appear often in events!

Round 2 of Mega Card Collectors is still ongoing but a new week has started so if you maxed out your donations in the previous week, you’re free to donate again now! We’re almost finished so let’s try to complete it before August is over!! Check it out HERE.

Don’t forget that you guys CAN use your plays in each of these games to earn points for the SportsFes (if you’re participating) even though we’re past the Task Deadline! Just make sure you’re following the rules to use them, as stated in the Task List (and now updated to mention this).


SPORTS FESTIVAL EVENT: We’ve only got a few days left in the event before it ends for good!! Make sure you’ve submitted ANY AND ALL COMPLETED ELIGIBLE TASKS by this Saturday, August 31st! Please try to turn them in sooner than later though so staff have time to approve it and so you can turn it into your team’s Team Points Tracker yourself (and also so me and yasu don’t have to do extra work to do when we’ll be occupied as it is with double checking all point tracker threads to make sure everything is correct). Please!!!!!


COMING UP


I wouldn’t exactly call it an “update” because we’ll be officially starting the mini hiatus then but as we need to wrap up the current events and post the Event Achievement for the month among other things related to the hiatus, we’ll see you again on September 1st!

Don't forget that the end of the month is coming up as well so get those mini masteries and donations in, play the monthly games if you haven't yet, and pick up your birthday stuff if you were born this month!!

SPORTS FESTIVAL EVENT: At 11:59 PM EDT tonight, the Task Deadline will happen! PLEASE make sure you’ve submitted any masteries, trade meters, or mini masteries that you plan to use in the event before that deadline or they cannot be used to turn in for points! Plays in Mega Card Collectors and Scavenger Hunt can be continued to be turned in for points even if they’re made after the Task Deadline.

If you’re still confused or have other questions about the deadline and stuff, please check out the sort-of FAQ and mini update I wrote related to it HERE!


IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT


This may come as a surprise or shock to some of you but we have an important announcement to make! After some discussion, we (the admins) have decided that Sakura TCG will be enterting a mini hiatus starting September 1st.

Now before anyone gets too worked up, let me explain the why behind this and what the mini hiatus will mean for both players and staff.

There are multiple reasons behind this hiatus, the most notable ones being we’re simply busy and RL is kicking us in the butt as well as feeling burned out in general. Some of you may not have known but we’ve been running Sakura for 3 years now without a single break or hiatus/rest! A lot of work goes into keeping the TCG operating that is not always obvious or visibly shown and it’s just been slowly building up until the point we’re at now.

We have a good amount of events throughout each year too and they’re usually a big deal with lots of stuff going on (which is obviously more my fault than anything else) so while they are often spaced out with a few months in between, I’m sure we’ve all noticed that there have been more and more delays as the TCG continues.

You might think “then why not stop doing events, or such big events? Hire more people? Cut back on things?” And you’re probably right! But that’s just not how I am. I’ve tried countless times to cut back on things, make things simpler, etc but once I start thinking of ideas, they just get away from me and I want to do it all!

Not having enough staff is not a problem or cause here either. The staff we do have are great as they are and are often responding much more timely and quickly than we usually do! For the things we admins do on our own, we’re just more comfortable doing them ourselves because they usually deal with custom graphics or accessing admin/management panels that we don’t want to share the login information for with different people.

TL;DR: The burn out is real and we want to take some time to assess the TCG, see if there’s anything we can do or change to make things easier or more balanced. Life in general has been fairly busy for us as well and we haven’t been around as much as we like so we’re hoping that we can get more settled in and things will mellow out during the hiatus.

Now, what does this mean for you guys? I’ve written out everything on the forum HERE so please give it a good read before asking me any questions! If you ask something that I’ve already talked about in that post, I WILL just copy/paste or screenshot it for you, if I don’t just tell you to read it again for my sanity lmao


COMING UP


We’re nearing the end of the month with only one more update left, so make sure you get everything done soon!!! The next update will be on August 28th and since I hijacked this week’s update from Aqua, I may ask her to do next week’s update instead. Or maybe you’ll see me again, who knows!!
