The game is just too expensive for most people.

I voted on CpC, but crest->folrart is big too, just secondary in my opinion.
Needs a new sig, but haven't come up with one.
So here is a message about how I need a new sig but haven't come up with one :D

One of my friends spent a small amount of money and went as far as lvl 70 with a 2 guradian splash falkow deck during set 4. His highest rp was 1960 or something close. When set 5 was out, he realized tha to he would have to pay again to compete and he was frustrated that despite his grinding and his 1000+ matches,he didnt even have enough point cards to get a single copy of a 5 star. He made a "eternal afel" file, fooled around with it a bit, and then decided to quit. His brother quit as well, due to boredom, so i am the only one left in our guild :D

I've introduced about 5 people to this game, they play for a couple of days, then quit. Entirely based on card acquisition. It is highly difficult to play a competitive file without spending a lot of money to get cards. And at 21 bucks for 75 cards... with no rarity guarantee is a serious issue. If packs or boxes had rarity guarantees many more people would probably stick around.. (an example.. I have purchased 5 boxes and between them have only gotten 1 5* card)

I read that a lot of people are complaining about how hard it is to obtain cards, specifically 3* and higher (also some are complaining about trying to collect 2* cards) I'm not really complaining about the cost of packs or boxes, nor do the people I know who have quit, but more about the rarity rates for the cost.

A couple of them have said, if the 5 card packs were guaranteed rarities they would be inclined to return and maybe even pay, but I find that doubtful.
I personally, would like to see packs have a better rarity guarantee and distribution. with each pack being guaranteed to have a 3-5* (either 1 3, 1 4, or 1 5 star card) unlike now where they are only guaranteed to have 2*s and 1*s (and i have purchased a couple of packs recently.. got 2 2* cards, and 3 1* cards in one of them...) and that is the biggest issue with the game. Card acquisition is really horrible, and difficult.

Other: the game lacks pretty much in almost any category you can come up with. Saying almost any because nobody can complain about the graphics for a good reason.

i would have to agree with vasha the packs are a little crummy it is nearly impossible for some to obtain a 3 star in packs. it seems u would have to buy at least 4-5 packs just to get one 3 star in one case it took me that many packs just to get my first marduk and another 4 for second marduk which is the only 3 star i've gotten from set 7. i'd say if they could make it where u were guaranteed at least one 3 star or higher in packs then not so many people wouldn't be frustrated with investing in packs. i know i was when i got set 5 packs didn't get a single useful card besides oversouls. anyways i would say the biggest issue is the steep transition to falrart. it used to be where it would take u 2 months to make a competitive file once u left crest arena for good but now it seems it would take longer just to get there. ever since i came back from my 2 set hiatus due to lack of internet i've wanted to quit so many times seemed like i would never be able to be a competitive player also with the fact i probably have the worst rp in existence (1341). All i can do is hope that i stop getting so many of the top players in alteil as my only opponents. well i guess the other thing i can do is hope i get this job and maybe spend a little on here later on.
reasons why i quit.... refess is still dependent on ex cards.....and i have no ex cards.
