WWE SuperCard Season 7 may be the best season ever

When WWE SuperCard Season 7 launches tomorrow, it will be the greatest evolution of the game in its 6 year history. And having been there from Day 1, this hardcore fan could not be more excited.

Season 7 feels like a soft reset for the game, in many ways. There are two main ways to categories the new features:

  • Some changes finally capture the full essence of the game thus far
    • On-Demand Play aka All Game Modes
    • Separate Draft Board
    • Streamlined In-Game Currency and Store
  • while the other features unlock even more possibilities for gameplay
    • Styles
    • Techniques
    • Super Moves

Let me go through each of them briefly and finally end off with my thoughts about the additions to the card catalog.

But before I begin, a quick shoutout to SUPERZOMGBBQ for his Season 7 gameplay video which was really helpful for me to visualise the changes.

On-Demand Play aka All Game Modes

Over the past 6 years, WWE SuperCard has introduced several kinds of PVP modes, and rotated them in order to keep gameplay fresh every week. But the truth is, every player has their own favourite mode.

Some love the Royal Rumble mode for the high rewards per game (i.e. more draft picks, League Points and PVP points). Personally? I’ve always preferred the classic War mode for the ultimate grind. Its simplicity is the reason I fell in love with the game all those years ago.

Currently, it takes about 5 weeks before your favourite PVP mode cycles back, which is honestly fine. But in Season 7, you will now have to option to play ANY PVP mode you want. You will still have a maximum of 5 bouts at any one time, but now you don’t have to wait another month to play Elimination Chamber.

In order to keep things fresh, of course, there will still be a weekly featured mode that will earn you bonus rewards and have a leaderboard. In essence the gameplay has not changed, it simply provides more options for players.

EDITED TO ADD: Now that Season 7 has launched, I can confirm that the leaderboard and the chance to earn momentum slots will apply to all modes!

Separate Draft Board

Nothing says “more options” than introducing a separate draft board! This is a deceptively simple, yet game-changing feature that will leave players asking “how have we played this game for 6 years without this?!”

In Season 7, every mode you play will earn you draft picks. Yes, Money in the Bank and Last Man Standing will finally contribute to your draft picks. More importantly, you can visit the draft board and use your picks anytime you want!

Want to use up your picks from the main menu? Now you don’t need to play Wild or PVP or an event to access it!

Want to save up draft picks for challenges and quests? Now you can without needing to force quit your game!

Yet there’s one feature that excites me the most…

Streamlined In-Game Currency and Store

In my 6 years of playing WWE SuperCard, I’m somewhat embarrassed to have spent hundreds of hours each month playing it religiously. But I’m even more ashamed to admit just how much real life currency I’ve spent on the game. Yet the irony is that they seldom seem enough to get the cards I want!

One major reason for this is because there were so many different currencies in play by the time Season 6 concluded. You had tickets from challenges, League Points from PVP, Battle Points from team events and Contracts from the most frustrating mode of all, Money in the Bank.

Each currency would have its own store and unique set of rewards. To get all the rewards, you would essentially have to play all the modes. It was frustrating because not all rewards were worth the effort, but some definitely made you regret not grinding more often.

In Season 7, all that changes because there will only be one In-Game Currency – SuperCoins that can be earned via all game modes. This means you get rewarded for playing SuperCard, no matter what mode you prefer!

There will also be only one SuperCoin store moving forward, which would presumably have a more streamlined range of rewards, and hopefully they will be much more accessible to everyone regardless of playing preferences.

New additions to the gameplay

It wouldn’t be a new Season of WWE SuperCard if there wasn’t some addition to the gameplay, but I don’t think it’s fair to discuss Styles, Techniques and Super Moves before I’ve had a chance to try them out.

However, I can touch on them very briefly.

Styles brings another dimension to each SuperStar card, which each Style eligible for a range of four Techniques to give your cards an added boost in gameplay. I love how much depth Styles and Techniques will bring, but I’m a little concerned that with that level of complexity they may not be able to fully balance the game as a result.

As of right now, I can’t imagine when I would utilise Super Moves – an overpowered boost that you have to charge up before using. We’ll see I guess!

Card Artwork

It can’t be easy to conceptualise more and more unique concepts for cards each year, and the initial tier themes of Season 7 are literally the most outlandish yet. However, they are without a doubt, some of the most creative designs I’ve ever seen and I’m so excited to collect them.

Here are the three new tiers:

Bio-Mechanical

Unwieldly name aside, the Bio-Mechanical tier is the first new tier of Season 7 and its design features what appears to be a cyborg skeletal dragon. I think it’s very cool that the equipment slot is where its left eye should be.

Swarm

I personally love this tier the most, mainly because of how colourful it is. Thankfully I don’t suffer from entomophobia, because the Pro version of these designs are really well animated and move incredibly hypnotically.

Behemoth

Last but definitely not least, the highest new tier is the Behemoth tier and the artwork features a serpentine Kaiju destroying a city. The Pro version animates the atomic breath and you really feel its power. I like how they definitely didn’t want the Behemoth to be an obvious Godzilla ripoff but couldn’t resist making the energy beam blue nonetheless.

WWE SuperCard Season 7 Card List

Before I begin once again I have to shoutout SUPERZOMGBBQ for his full card catalog video which was my sole resource for my analysis.

The new Season 7 card catalog is notable for Superstars they’ve omitted rather than who they’ve included.

Glaring omissions include Carmella, Dana Brooke, Lacey Evans, Mandy Rose, and Mia Yim aka Reckoning despite all of them being on the current main roster. I suppose some of them will show up as Fusions but surely they could’ve been part of at least ONE regular tier?

Mia Yim aka Reckoning’s absence is especially notable, when her male counterparts in RETRIBUTION are all represented on the Bio-Mechanical tier.

Another notable absence is Ivar of the Viking Raiders, who was severely injured a couple of months ago, and will require neck surgery, but is expected to fully recover. Perhaps his extended absence from the screen cost him a chance in the new tiers. His tag team partner Erik shows up in the Swarm tier.

On a lighter note, let’s look at some notable additions to the card catalog!

Making their SuperCard debuts – meaning they’ve never shown up in the game before:

  • NXT’s Robert Stone (Bio-Mechanical),
  • RAW’s Mace (Bio-Mechanical),
  • RAW’s Riddick Moss (Swarm),
  • RAW’s Dabba-Kato (Bio-Mechanical and Behemoth),
  • and totally unexpectedly, the legendary Tugboat (Behemoth)!

And… that’s it. In fairness, most of the bigger names like Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar, former NXT Champion Karrion Kross and Scarlett made their debut in the SS20 tier, which was only 3 months ago.

Despite already making their SuperCard debut, the following are showing up on the draft board for the first time:

  • MVP (Bio-Mechanical) – his SuperCard debut was as a SS20 Fusion
  • Shotzi Blackheart (Behemoth) – her SuperCard debut was as a SS20 Fusion
  • Umaga (Behemoth) – his SuperCard debut was a WM35 Throwback

Season 7 also reflects how some Superstars have been climbing up the ranks in the WWE, including those who made their WWE TV debut at the NXT Breakout Tournament last year.

  • Isaiah “Swerve” Scott (Bio-Mechanical, Swarm and Behemoth) – his debut and only previous appearance was in Season 5 (Summerslam ’19)
  • Shelton Benjamin (Bio-Mechanical) – his debut was in Season 3 (Summerslam ’17 Throwback) and he was last seen in Season 5 (Summerslam ’19 Fusion)
  • Bronson Reed (Swarm and Behemoth) – his debut and only previous appearance was in Season 6 (Nightmare)
  • Cameron Grimes (Swarm and Behemoth) – his debut and only previous appearance was in Season 6 (Nightmare)
  • Lana (Swarm and Behemoth) – her debut as a Superstar was in Season 3 (Ultimate Fusion) but she also had a Season 3 (Summerslam ‘17) and Season 4 (Monster)
  • Aliyah (Behemoth) – her debut was in Season 4 (Goliath Fusion) and she appeared in Season 5 (Neon)
  • Dave Mastiff (Behemoth) – his debut and only previous appearance was in Season 5 (Cataclysm)

Finally, Season 7 marks the SuperCard draft board returns of some legendary Superstars:

  • Christian (Bio-Mechanical) – has not been found on the draft board since Season 2
  • Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat (Swarm) – has not been found on the draft board since Season 2
  • Kevin Nash (Behemoth) – has not been found on the draft board since Season 1 as Diesel
  • Scott Hall (Behemoth) – has not been found on the draft board as Scott Hall, but as Razor Ramon in Season 5 (Neon)

And some legends who are back for Season 7 after skipping Season 6:

  • Bret “Hit Man” Hart (Bio-Mechanical Fusion) – last appeared in Season 5 (Neon)
  • Papa Shango (Swarm) – last appeared in Season 5 (Gothic)
  • Vader (Behemoth) – last appeared in Season 5 (Gothic)

WWE SuperCard Season 7 will begin on Thursday, Singapore time. Servers will go down for pre-Season maintenance at 1am, Singapore time, so be sure to get all your final preparations done by then!

Peter Lin

His teenage years spent nursing a giant man-crush on Steve Rogers, the first Captain America, Peter naturally found himself drawn to many other heroes who depicted strong, manly qualities, including the honour-bound warrior Worf, first Klingon in Starfleet, and the muscular rock hard abs of The Thing.
