I don't think these decks were a bad decision on Kate's part. For 60 credits you are guaranteed to get a bunch of mediocre - fairly good cards in the same two clans, so they are instantly useable. Any new player now can have something more to start with instead of using the same characters from 4 different clans. (60 credits = $2.90 for 50 credits, plus you can earn 10 credits off of easy missions in your first day of playing with the free cards)
Yes for 60 credits you could get 3 packs
of newbloods and then just sell them, but have any of you ever considered some of us just have TERRIBLE luck when it comes to packs
. Just yesterday I bought 2 packs
of newbloods, and got Esta x2, Ernst
, and Negodz
. This would have been an absolute WASTE of credits for someone buying their first cards! (It was a waste to me...or anyone really).
Overall these theme packs
from Kate are a very smart marketing decision (much better than yesterdays' summer tournament announcement..ha). These packs
(I like the Ulu Watu
theme) can compliment the free cards (also some ulu watu's) that a rookie player has in their arsenal.
