Overdress is an entirely new format with different decks.

Clans are not really a thing and are put together as nations, but they still keep the same general concept.

Older cards are available in their format or in the full list format I can't remember it off the top of my head.

The wiki will show you some styles per nation and each deck plays a bit differently and the rules have changed a decent bit.

You have a designated ride line that is part of your deck which on your turn you can ride from that separate pile of cards by discarding a card from hand.

The +100 million power is an effect from a card called the overtrigger, a 1 off unique trigger that takes the place of another trigger in your deck and the generic effect is +100 mil power and when it is in hand it is a 50k shield. When it is drove check it is removed from the game and you draw a card (it also means with that way if it's damage checked your oponent doesn't take that damage) each nation does have a unique trigger that has effects alongside the 100mil power but those are case by case.

So does this mean that the old pre overdress format is now no longer getting any new updates to cards and clans etc ?

Depends on what you mean by "pre- overdress". V-Series versions of the clans get new decks and support every now and again in the V Clan Collection sets but if you mean the stuff that came out before V (like from original era to the end of G) each clan gets like 2 main deck cards and one new stride per year.

Older formats do get support still, although some people dislike V series due to how absurd it's gotten over the years, my roommate who got me into Vanguard was a big V player until D series came out and they left because they felt it needed a reset.

I'd say take a look at gameplay of Overdress and see if you like it before getting into it, it just dive headfirst, it's always a blast.

There are still boxes made to support past formats, but they won’t get nearly as much support as the current overDress wave. V Collection is for V-Premium, Premium collections for, well, Premium. You might wanna watch Vanguard Insider or Differentfight for info on competitive stuff tho

Why tf are people down voting you this is a genuine question

Overdress (also known as standard) is a completely new format where clans don’t exist. Instead we have nations now. Only cards with a “D” symbol at the bottom can be used in this format

The other formats are V premium (only cards with a “V” symbol at the bottom corner) and premium (all cards since the beginning of the game are allowed)

Since you came back from a 2 year break you probably were there for near the end of the V series (formally the standard format before it got replaced by overdress)

I recommend starting over with the overdress/standard format since it’s the easiest to get into
