Rally didn´t like the changes at all. Now if you want a pack you have to buy the credits. I liked completing missions for the credit reward. Youknow, you completed a mission and had the satisfaction of buying a pack with the reward. Now You have to win 500 fights with one clan and then 500 more with another clan just to buy one pack. and the cards are definitly going to suck for the new blood because they are not going to be worth as much anyway. So now you pay more for less valuable cards.
Worst move you guys ever made, except four your pockets.
Technically speaking, this is a much better value per credit.
However, that means that your rewards in the game come much slower.
You need to play, roughly, at least 5 hours of DT and tool around for about another 2-3 in ELO to reliably get 20 credits in a week. So dedicated players who spend a large portion of their free time on UR will get 1 pack every 2 weeks.
I see that there is a tiny tiny link on the shop page that still lets you buy 20 credit packs. There is no such option for the iPhone app. I think this is a good move overall, but ONLY if players still have easy access to old 20 credit packs. The old packs need to be displayed side by side with the new ones. I don't mind if there's a big shiny label that says the 40 c packs are a better price per card, but the 20 c ones need to be easy to find and purchase.
One last thing... UR devs, I hope you guys know that there are people out there who only use smart phone clients, and rarely or maybe even never access the game site. The shops need to offer the same options for the smartphone people.
It seems like people want the old 20 credit NewBlood pack back for many reasons. (Not that it's really gone anyway.)
I would suggest UR just simplify the shop into 4 types of packs:
20 credit NB pack (no Rare guaranteed,) 40 credit NB pack (1 Rare guaranteed,) 40 credit Elite pack, 70 credit Ultimate pack.
The shop will look nice
There's really no need to keep other packs in the old shop other than the 20 credit NB pack. No one in their right mind would want to buy those when comparing the value of new packs to old ones.
If you are the kind that buys many cards at a time, compare Ultimate and Titanium:
4 Ultimate packs = 280 credits for 28 characters (10 credit per card,) with at least 12 Rares;
1 Titanium pack = 295 credits for 30 characters (about 10 credit per card,) with at least 5 Rares.
If you are the kind that buys a few cards every time you have enough credits to get a smaller pack, compare the new Elite or Ultimate packs to old Elite, Ultimate and all the packs in between any way you want, (I don't feel like listing them all ,) the new packs are just much better in value.
I like this new shop.
"There's really no need to keep other packs in the old shop other than the 20 credit NB pack. No one in their right mind would want to buy those when comparing the value of new packs to old ones."
excuse me, i love titanium packs because its a great way to expend my collection without getting much double.
I like new shop, really. Now the waiting a doubled longer, but 7 cards instead of 6 (with doubles x2 old NB) is pretty nice. As for old shop I hope that Titanium will not dissapear, because it's my favorite pack ever.
In the case of game economy I can say that now it's much better, credits now cost more than earlier. Rares dropped down down from NB faster - it's good for new "free" players. Devs goes in the right way in my opinion, improve good feelings by using the shop - with new packs you'll not be dissapointed like at past
