When you do the math it sounds easy. But then the real life hits you in the face.
I need 4 weeks (1 month) of diligent play just to buy this card. Also, you can't ALWAYS finish in top 10. And what about the other collector cards? What about all the new cards that are released every fortnight?
Overall, it is very demotivating to see all these cards entering the game straight into ELITE pack, that cost 2M clintz... Death Adder, B Mape, and now this one. With all the math, I need 3 months just to get those 3 cards.
It is possible without spending money in my opinion if you are an Toruney and EFC Dark Corners to Z Palace Master from the moment you start the game.
How and Why?:
Z Palace Monthly winner wins a Mythic Card. Top 10.
There is also the pack so you get 25 Cards.
To get the Lds, you can do Tutorial.
Tourney top 25 can secure 30K Clintz as long as there is 120+ participants.
You get Credits when you are top 25.
Otherwise, super hyperintensive and probably a player would only have 4 hours of sleep and be playing UR for most of their lives in that scenario.
Though there is the occasional coliseum and staff sponsored events to help out.
You dont need all cards as i said.
B mappe Death Adder etc etc are only useful in survivor with the soft reset coming up so most probs you wont need them untill you are a survivor player.
You have to consider that staff needs to find a balance between coercing people into buying credits and i feel it is balnced as of now, you can compete with almost anyone after 6 months of decent playtime every day atleast in being on the same level in being able to make decks. Except the lds which i believe should have some 3 sets of missions in 2 weeks or something to make it a bit faster for players trying to play z palace.
Daily box, Daily EFC box, EFC weekly rewards, EFC season rewards, DT, Survivor, Tutorial and Staff sponsored events. Maybe you can't get the entire collection in 1 year, but you can get most playable cards and you can keep up with the NB
Also, staff don't release "overpriced" cards, players set the price
Staff doesn't set prices but they do affect them. By making cards that go straight to elite packs it rrstricts supply and infkates prices. I've been playing this game for years as well and didn't have a problem keeping up with cards until now. Missing #commanche, Death Adder and #b mappe. Will be very difficult to obtain them. No, you don't have to have all the cards to play...but it sure helps!
