Well the thing is, you don't pay for cards. You pay for gran. It's how the system is, and frankly, the system is fine. But once you get the 1*s and 2*s, you start to work on the 3*s, the 4*s, the 5*s, and finally the EXs. But in all honesty, if we're coming close to that road, then that's a signal that we need more cards in the system anyway, right?
Edit: Peralisc, I just gave this a thought, and...here's the thing...paying is commutative. If you paid for 500 gran at some point to lotto when you didn't have whatever 1 and 2*s, but then you're getting auto-ditch (4th copy and on), you might as well have lost that money there as well.
So, frankly, there you have it. IRL, you at least get additional physical playsets. But here, when you make a new file, you get access to all of your cards again, so IMO, giving you 4th copies and up just seems a bit desperate and sketchy IMO. Considering that there are 780 total 1 and 2*s out there right now, it effectively costs $78.00 just to obtain a playset of all of those and after that, another $30.00 to obtain the rest of the rares.
Now if someone shelled out oh, around $110 in support of Alteil, I think that's far above the average value of player contributions.

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.
