arfort wrote:I agree with Alteil employees. Honestly, I was extremely surprised when I received free grans for the first time. I've bought 30$ worth of grans after that since you start to get the best money to gran ratio at that amount. I figure that 30$ + the free continuous stuff will keep me going for a very long time. 30$ for a game is dirt cheap. A box of magic with it's 36 boosters (and if you're lucky, about 20 trade able/playable cards and 500 craps that aren't worth their cost in ink that you can't recycle or do anything with) will cost you around 100$ usually if you purchase in stores. Not to mention they do 4 expansions per years these last few years and your card rotate out of the various tournament formats every year.
Normal TCGs's cost (printer, artists, employees, etc) isn't any higher than a computerized card game. Royalties still cost as much, you still have staff and instead of having to pay the printer you have to pay bandwidth, equipment, extra staff to deal with the equipment.
The EX pack's mostly good to replace dispel in everyone's deck with something else to deal with the KM. I know with the Gowen card you can get away with having just one copy of him since he's not good at all other than for his Open ability and the angel seems to have a lack of synergy with her own abilities. I wouldn't play her honestly.
My concern is mostly for future promo or EX cards if they turn out to be really good cards of their own, not just a silver bullet against KM. Please leave a way to acquire them somehow, if they're playable in any constructed tournament. I don't know if you guys will rotate old set out of constructed tournament like legend of the five rings or MTG does. If you don't then there has to be a way for new players to get the same cards older players use. Cost can be increased I guess, or the EX pact removed and replaced by an EX lottery card system or "out of print" card lottery system. Lots of options. I know L5R once made a promo that was so good that they had to reprint the card in their next expansion.
Anyway, I hope people support Alteil some. Think of it as a donation or something. Use the cashier. It doesn't bite.

"This is supposed to be a free game, but now I need to buy cards in order to compete."
Alteil.com has never said you can be super competitive without paying money.
Logress wrote:Oh, and where did anyone get the idea there were no guaranteed rares or very rares in our packs and boxes? When was the last time you got a 5-pack with all rarity 1's? Never, because it's impossible. There are guaranteed higher-rarity cards in both, it's hard to compare to Magic exactly since we don't have anything at the 15-card level.
