To everyone who is asking the New Elite back is the best card pack to buy.
lets say you have 280 Credits.
You get 7 packs
7 guaranteed rares. (same with everyone else)
Now NB rares are worthless so its not worth the buy at all.
You get 7 packs
49 cards From your 4 chosen clans
7 rares guaranteed
Rares will start to depreciate as everyone is now getting rares. but still better than NB rares
You get 4 packs
12 Rares Guaranteed. Refer to above about rares prices
Now some people might think 12 rares > 7 rares and congrats your math hasn't failed you. *here's a cookie*
The difference is that those 12 rares you get at best you will get 4 duplicates from the guaranteed rares. I am not going to calculate your rate of other rares into this. However in the elite pack you have the chance of getting the same money Cr over and over again. because with only 1 guaranteed each pack has the chance of that 20-60k CR.
Lets also remember that in Ultimate you have 16 other cards that could be worth something. In Elite you have 42 other cards.
Yes that's right 42 > 16 you aren't falling behind *here's another cookie*
You get more cookies If you read the next comment I make as well So keep reading!
Now I left you off with 42 cards remaining in the Elite packs and 16 remaining in the Ultimate pack.
Lets say you have a 1/6 chance of getting a rare from these remaining cards. (that = 16.666667% chance) Most people say 15% is the correct ratio, but this makes math easier for this example
So that gives you
42/6 = 7 rares.
16/6 = 3 rares.
I know 16/6 isn't 3 but im generous to the ultimate packs (If you noticed the math mistake and rechecked it *here's another cookie*)
That brings out totals to
Elite = 14 Rares
Ultimate = 15 Rares
Math never ceases to amaze yes people 15 > 14
However my point returns to the ever so friendly fact of having 7 chances for the big rares in elite vs the 4 from the Ultimate pack.
1 Extra Rare may seem nice but lets say you chose from the 4 best packs to pick for rares. *here's a cookie if you know what those are from my previous post on page 4 of this thread*
So let me be friendly and say you pulled the same thing rare wise for your first 14 rares Now the ultimate gets 1 other rare but the rest of the pack the remaining 13 cards are the same in the elite pack.
That means your 1 extra rare has to be better than 42-14(rares)-13(other cards that matched) = 15 other cards. Remember though none of these cards are rare so smile you Ultimate pack buyers you got 1 extra rare.
And The elite buyer got the better pull money wise
So think it through before you buy. And remember every draw wont be the same.
*one last cookie 4 U*
@Land of Smile: You can't get Crs in packs. Some people might show you a link to a page which shows a pack with Crs in but this is because you can make the game show different cards in packs (you don't get them) by editing the hyperlink.
@--xtern--: You can still buy the old packs: http://www.urban-rivals.com/en/shop/?oldpacks=1
