No shadow you are the one who didnt read the post....
the posts went something like this...
Repeat said - buying rebuying weekly is inefficient
Me replying - ya its not an efficient tactic to employ in that context
you - disagreeing for the sake of disagreeing... and not sticking to the context that was evident in the previous posts
yes i understand being mistaken is hard and its easy to keep digging a bigger and bigger hole. im sure you will find a way to be "correct" in your mind. most of the the things you mention about smart ways to play the market dont fit in the specific context of the posts you are commenting on.
if there are ways to not lose money on the sell when its cheap and buy when its expensive... do enlighten the community on this, that kind of contribution would get a sticky for sure.
@repeat, there are easy ways to run affordable elo
decks -- check the ELO
forum. the bans are fairly predictable with a few exceptions....(Wanda
is no surprise, Yayoi is no surprise) and yes i definitely agree that the best way to cope with the bans is to have a robust collection as you said --- this is a collectible card game mate -- ELO
is supposedly the top level of the game --- the current ban system goes with this.
some people will not like it. some people will have more motivation to collect.
the long term playability of this game is far better served by creating formats that cater to people with different sized collections.
DTs/DM cater for basically everyone.... and one does not need that many clintz to build decks that can win DTs
tend to favour the richer players since big cards are needed and big Crs are useful
the way it is now is better suited for people with 5-6 clans completed in order to cope with bans... the more cards the easier
the common advice for new players has always been
1) play a DT for the 50 clintz and save clintz
2) improve the DT deck and start playing for the 50 clintz + 1 credit
3) improve the DT deck even more and start getting top 150 finishes
4) build ELO
decks as you can afford them
5) play for the 2 credits a week as as you continue to build your collection/decks
6) throw in some survivor
action in there to earn clintz when DTs are not on
7) continue to grow collection/decks
you have said you only wanted to play ELO
... it will be tougher to raise clintz and grow your collection
at the end of the day, the most efficient way to raise clintz in this game is by playing DTs, using free creds to buy cards, and playing the market
there are tons and tons and tons of players out there with near complete collections that have not spent very much real money on this game --- so it is doable repeat. but sticking with only ELO
will slow you down. good luck
