Cards are panels which highlight the best performing players, along with one of the heroes as whom they played, at the end of a game or match.

Mechanic Edit

Each player can only have one card per game or match. Their cards show statistics which can be found in the Scoreboard, as well as two exclusive statistics: an "MVP" statistic, which a player receives when he or she was on fire for a large percentage of the game or match; and a "Gold Medals Earned" statistic, which a player receives when he or she received four or five gold medals during the game or match.

Cards match the team color of the player. Players can vote for any card, regardless of team, and can also vote for their own card. Players can only vote for a card once per game or match. On PC, voting is accomplished by clicking the button underneath the card, and on console, it is accomplished by pressing the respective buttons (X, O, ☐, Δ on PlayStation 4; X, Y, B, A on Xbox One). A sound effect plays each time a card for which is voted.

Cards which get five points reach the "Epic" status. A sound effect is played and the announcer says "Epic." Cards which get ten points reach the "Legendary" status. A sound effect is played and the announcer says "Legendary." After a card has reached "Epic" or "Legendary" status, the hero who was on the card says a specific voice line.

Trivia Edit

  • If a card of you shows up at the end of a game, your "Card" statistic in your Career Profile increases.
  • A "ding" noise, which differs from the usual noise played when someone votes for a card, will be played when someone votes for their own card. The sound can only be heard by other players, not the self-voting player. Right now, the self-voting noise does not work as it is supposed to do, but randomly chimes itself.
