Seems an odd amount of them to charge for low rarity cards. I understand that developers don't want to remove incentives to spend cash and keep the game alive. However, 25000 FM worth of point cards for a one star seems incredibly high priced (yes, I'm aware that there will be other ways of getting point cards). I highly doubt that anyone would ever waste them on a one star card. They quite simply aren't worth even close to that much.
This is implicit in the recycling values. One and two star cards recycle for 5 and 10 gran, respectively, if I recall correctly. 5 stars recycle for 300. There's a good reason for 5 stars being worth 60 times as much as 1 stars and 30 times as much as 2 stars: one and two star cards are a dime a dozen. I expected something more along the lines of 1 stars costing 1 point card (yes, only 1 - using the same ratio as the recycling values, 5 stars would still cost 60). However, I didn't expect point cards to be given out for this, that, and the other thing, as well as selling for FM. It seems to make the FM purchase of point cards somewhat pointless. After all, if I had spent nothing on avatars since I began playing, I'd have around half of what I need to buy a one star.
I remember someone, in a long ago post, saying that they'd even pay as much as 2000 FM in an FM lottery for a one star. Well... how about 25000? Looks like we'll all be saving our point cards for the big rares, despite the fact that people like myself might finally want a playset of something more common (like, for me, a 3rd blitz soldier). It would be silly not to; who would spend 1/6th of the value of a 5 star on a crappy, dime a dozen one star? You'd have to be off your rocker or unable to do math.
Edit: I realized that my point is worded strongly, and I don't want to sound like I'm not excited by the inclusion of point cards
