Free stuff is nice, don't get me wrong, but this isn't a charity, they need to make money too and every virtual dollar they just give away is potentially a virtual dollar that won't be purchased with real dollars. The trick is giving away just enough stuff to keep players interested during those times when they can't afford new stuff and to give away the right stuff to entice them into wanting more new stuff. Its for this reason that I think the FM lottery makes sense, you have to play the game to earn the FM to even do the lottery, and because (unless you have a ton of FM saved up already) you'll be getting new starter cards a few cards at a time its not just a 1 time and then you want more give away like just giving a free starter would be. Whats more because you can only ever get starter cards out of said lottery your limiting what the player can get for free and eventually if they want the non starter stuff they will have to spend real money (or grind for years in mirage master).
So yeah, I'm not saying I'd be upset if we were given free gran or free starters cause I definitely would be very happy, not upset, but from a business stand point I think they could make players happier in the long run and their wallets fatter in the long run by simply implementing the FM lottery instead.
