I bought 3 of each, and i can assure you it didn't drastically sway my ratio of win/loss.
I had more losses before EX, I still have more losses then wins, I don't think thats changing any time soon, and certainly not because I have or don't have the EX cards.

And more players means more potential buyers who will very likely bring in more money long term then limited edition EX packs will bring in during the short term.

There's a reason those players are willing to spend 100-2,000 dollars on single limited time only cards, cause its VERY important to those players that they have access to every deck building option that's out there. In this game, they're still going to feel that same way, yet their going to learn there's nothing they can do about it, they can never have access to the cards they missed out on. I may not have hard facts to back up my claims, but based on what I know of myself and people I've met I'm willing to bet they're response is going to be a negative one, possibly to the point of quitting. For any card game, Alteil included, I think those are the people you most want to keep most happy, the ones who shell out hundreds of bucks on the launch of every set trying to collect player sets of every card.
In the end the only hard fact I have to back up anything is that I, myself, am willing to quit over this. Maybe I'm the lone exception, but based on the people I've been talking to about this issue it sure doesn't sound that way.
