"@Eric WMD: The problem isn't that free players will have to save for epics, it's how long it will take. The average price for epics won't be known until the market comes, but it appears as though they will be pricey. And if it will take months for a free player to be able to afford one epic card, then yeah, TECHNICALLY it will be possible for free players to get them, but it will be unrealistic.
And if free players wanted to buy packs
, they wouldn't be free players. Lol?"
In FR it takes a few weeks to buy Tokal (Most expensive card in the game ATM, but the market just came out), whereas if you were to try to save up to buy DJ Korr Cr
, you'd have to play several hundred years (Barring playing the market and events or lucky DT/ELO prizes). So really it is new-player friendlier than UR in the long term.
