Going to take small sample from 6 NB/Elite packs
I bought last week.
In these packs
, I got an average of:
1 rare, 2.6667 uncommon, 3.333 common.
This tells me that:
1. you will most likely NOT get unguaranteed rares.
2. you will average approximately 1:1 uncommon to common card.
Second of all, rare cards are not necessarily the most expensive types of cards in a deck. I'm going to look at a few clans so you can get an idea of a typical pack
(these are the 4 clans I picked out for my elite packs). It's worth mentioning that PCats have extremely high value uncommons, so you should pick them for your elite packs
PCats (Crs omitted).
11 rare cards, with an average value of ~3780 (crude math by rounding to the nearest 100s)
15 uncommon cards, with an average value of ~5700 (granted, most of this total is in Charlie
14 common cards, with an average value of 390
11 rares, avg ~9260
10 uncommons, average 1740
10 commons, average: 250
11 R: 8300 avg
13 U: 2500 avg
16 C: 400 avg.
39 R: 7000 average
42 U: 3400 average
44 C: 400 average
This would mean the expectation values for the two packs
you'd buy are approximately:
ELITE (40C): 1R, 2.7 U, 3.3 C = 17500 / pack
ULTIMATE (70C): 3R, 1.8U, 2.2 C = 28000 / pack
TL;DR: you're getting 60% more value and paying 75% more. so no.
