I think I take issue with this statement the most, not that it is not untrue. I feel this way, because the only other CCG I really ever played, was magic. However in magic once you had your deck you did not have to invest in anymore cards, you might have because you wanted to make extra decks or just becaues the cards were cool, whatever.
My point being I could stand toe to toe with a second edition deck, versus someone who had cards from beta and up.
Why because of strategy. Things like bad hand draws could be altered or fixed, by changing your deck around. If you made each and every card in your deck valuable then you would rarely have a bad draw.
I am getting way off topic here, but the point is, in magic you had physical cards, that you could physcially trade with others to make up for things your deck was lacking. In this game even if I bought a pack and got say thunderbolt, a 5 star rare, it would not do me any good since I do not play that color. Sure I could recycle it and get two new packs, but if in the two new packs all I got were level twos and below then I just got screwed.
This is also true with the new EX sets, really who would need three Lawtia angels, at most two could be used, if one was used for counterattacking. The third is just a wasted card, and its soul skill is not good enough to warrent use. However the XXXX is worth having three of, I would totally use three of him, but if I have to pay a premium because that crappy angel is included, it is not worth it.
