Here's the bottom line, and I can see Fraggle's and the game's side of this.
If that rule wasn't in place, the company would lose money on an extreme level.
Most people wouldn't pay money for credits, because they could just work an account up enough have 50 clintz, sell cards to themselves, and trade off all their dupes for the free cards they got when they created their second account by selling a card to their 2nd account, and rinse repeat until they had most of the collection.
The buying credits at least prevents this on some scale since the company has to benefit at least marginally for this to occur, and if you're gonna go through all that trouble and end up spending money anyway you may as well just do it for the one account.
This benefits you too because it keeps the game around and alive for you to enjoy. Servers, domain names, etc are not cheap, and as such they have to raise capital just to cover that, not to mention paying people like Fraggle here, the programmers who work quite hard to make the game what it is, etc.
And really compared to other CCGs this one is relatively inexpensive. 20 bucks american to get 400 credits which gets you 8 of the 8 card packs, is a really inexpensive way to get a starting collection. You can't get 8 packs of any other CCG and have a playable deck for I can think of for 20 bucks.
Sure you can buy starter decks for 20 bucks and they're "playable" but they tend to not be that great.
So really as far as CCGs go this is one of the best deals out there.

I want to buy some rare cards except any leaders or sentinels. i have 1800 clints. make your offer and ill buy whoever gives the best deal.
I have 1792 right now
I have now. 1707 clintz. just make any offer. ill see if i want the card(s) or not.
I highly recommend the 8 Card packs. First off most of the time, you'll make more Clintz just selling the unwanted cards than you would have if you'd bought the clintz, especially if you sell the 5 star. Almost all of them sell for at least 2000.
Secondly the 8 card packs seem to turn up more rares than do the regular packs. I bought 8, and got at least (on average) 1 rare per pack, and a few I got 2 rares. Also the Uncommon ratio seems to be a lot higher on these packs as well.
The downside is that if you're looking for a specific team then you're almost better off buying the 3 card packs, as you're more likely to get that team, and I have gotten rares from those packs, but far less often than I have from the 8 card.
Overall it's a better value as well. If you buy the 3 cards it costs you 60 credits to get 9 cards. With the 8 cards it's 50 credits for.. well 8.
And 5k Clintz won't buy you the same level of cards that you'd get in an 8 card pack. (Nor would it buy you most of the 5 star characters, much less 7 others)
I exchange Mac Hen 3 stars for any gheist or bagners or sentinel character of similar strenght
I'd like a working credit code and say 20,000 clintz
and i'll give the lao-maxed out.
