Rounded to the nearest 10, counted from the card list.
260 1 and 2 star cards x 3 (for all playsets) = 780.
365 x 2 = 730. So assuming that you wouldn't get a fourth copy of any card you already have three of (which has happened to me on an occasion), and don't miss a single day of MM gran at 10 gran, it'd take a free player two years just to collect all the playsets of the common cards. So to collect all of the more common playsets for one color, assuming that a player would only get cards of his or her starter color from the lotto every day, it'd take about half a year.
In general, to obtain all the playsets, assuming no 4th copies from the lottery, it would take 420 x 3 = 1240 days ~= 3.4 years to collect all the cards--assuming a new set doesn't come out.
So 3.4 years under PERFECT conditions.
Is this the kind of system that's supposed to be advertised as:
"No downloads, and no clients, 100 percent web-driven. You can play it on any computer with a web browser whenever you want.
Alteil is truly free to play."
In the words of Garcia:
You see those numbers, and they're the absolute QUICKEST time to collect all the cards.
Now I'd like to see some serious suggestions as to how we put a ceiling on pure free full playset collections of say, two years.
Nerf Elite Fencer. Change start skill to "target unit of agi 4 or higher gets AGI = 3. Then, this unit gets AGI = 4 for this turn and ATK +10"
For the great justice of the diverse meta.
