I say that 1 power makes all the difference, there's a huge difference between a card made little by oshitsune and him doesn't it?
but striker IS overpriced, 1 damage might be better, but a ridiculous 9k5 difference is just silly, yea, being able to 2HKO with some cards are cool, but not so much as to costing a small fortune.
agreed with jay being overpriced, praxie not so much, he's worth the money, as one of my friends said, he's good against all non att manip clans, most of the all stars haven't over 6 power, which he is at against them.
Ryuichi is nice, just as Jay, he can do 11 damage. Plus the SoB. That means, 1hko with Timber, 2hko with the 10-powered Chan, but unlike Jay, his damage isn't situational. With his SOB he is better than Jay against all stars, bangers, any attack manipulation, all of which are very common in elo.
After giving it some thought, I think there are four categories of overpriced cards:
1. Cr speculation: I remember Dahlia being over 22k, and Hawkins 14k right before the last Cr announcement. Currently, Jungo and Skeelz are going through a similiar phase.
2. Noob favorites: Some cards look very, very strong at first glance, and since there are a lot more noobs than pros in this game, they tend to drive up the demand (and therefore, price). Hammer, Griezzo and Amber seem to fall under this category. And yes, I know there are legitimate uses for Amber but 80% of the time I see noobs with Amber, Kolos and two 2*s trying to 1hko.
3. pfull potential: 4*s and 5*s are always worth at least 3~400 clintz unleveled, and 5~600 clintz pfull, even candy jack and winifred. I guess you can call that "overpriced" in terms of thier limited ability to win games, but that's not why you buy them.
4. Rarity: Vholt would be worth 120 clintz if you got him at level 5 instead of 50.
