Hey there i have played this beta for a couple of days now with a Necrodeck, the more i played it the more i liked it. Until i reached a point where i felt like making my own deck or even playing a new one.
So i bought a few hero packs and some other ones from the loads of gold i won in the campaign. Then i tried making my deck and realised that i didnt have near enough cards from the other factions to make one of theirs, then i traded in my seals for gold and got no closer from the few packs i invested in.
So i was stuck with my slightly expanded old Necrodeck.
But now i am out of gold and i realised that the only way for me to get more is to enter the tournaments (which i will never win with my present deck) or duel. So i am dueling and realised that my duels generally last for about 15 minutes and the normal amount of gold i get from each is about 600.
So according to my calculations, if i want to buy a Reinforcement pack i will have to play for approximately 315 minutes, i.e. 5 and a half hour, and that is just for getting 12 random cards i might even never be able to use. (12500/600 = 21x15 = 315/60 = 5.5 Hours)
I could of course buy an already made deck, so if i wan't the cheapest ones i will only have to play for 1560 minutes or more precisely 26 hours!! Thats insane, i mean i like the game and all but 26 hours of the same game with the same deck is just too much in any game. (62500/600 = 104x15 = 1560/60 = 26 Hours)
Oh and No i will not buy coins, i expect i will have to pay for the game once it is done and i will not pay for something that should be given freely (within a reasonable time limit!) In order to play the whole game i.e trying all the decks.
And even if it is free i still think 26 hours of repetetive gaming is a lot to ask for in order to try 1 other deck.
I now i sound bitter now but it isn't meant as aggresssively as it is said, i am just trying to make a point
