It's not so hard to do one of those free surveys. And to be quite fair, it's pretty thrilling to buy credits and open packs. Makes me feel like I'm 10 years old again opening a pack of yu-gi-oh cards, and getting that one rare card I always wanted.
Wow, i never new you didn't buy creds, i buy them regularly now, but if you don't want to use much money, you can get 20 creds for 1 dollar on the iPhone app, and then you'll never have to buy them again. or complete a survey.
They probally won't allow it. (its mainly to stop players multi accounting).
You can ether buy 1 lot of credits. Even the small ammounts you can get on the mobile app will do and its only once so its not expensive at all (you probally lose more down the sofa ) or you can do 1 of the free credit surveys (though some don't work, though i think most do).
I'm the same as you bro, I haven't purchased an actual cent to this game....yet. The stars are due to me trying to grab as many credits freely as I can, being downloading stuff or surveys (easier to download stuff, wait a while then uninstall everything out. worked for the most part).
Although it's kinda funny UR based itself to be this big "free" game, when in reality if you truly wanna get anywhere without participating in ELO and tourneys, you have to buy credits.
"My goal is to reach Legend without ever having purchased creds."
Yeah buuuuut why?
I'm sure everyone here has paid more than a Buck for the kind of entertainment you're getting out of UR. Why not support this game if you enjoy it? You have to keep in mind that many people work hard to make UR available for you to play, and they all need to eat and pay bills.
