I agree and I assume that’s the point. And, like, the action in and of itself doesn’t bother me, but the “oh we’ll just do this because it’s good for us, screw the users and their opinions lol” part makes it seedy. It really is not that hard to gives heads up in advance (not the morning of + some random messaging from Sierra hours after the roll out). Esp since the first handful of us on the site this morning were moments away from a ragequit because the full extent of the change was not apparent.
I’m on the side with the handful of people saying “let it count to 10” rather than 6. That would still require a 3x a day log in for the full 24, but it doesn’t spoil the game as we’ve been playing it for once-a-day players. Bonuses not punishment is the way to go.
That’s what I’m questioning. What’s the impact on the already very screwed over creators? I don’t see this increasing paid packs being bought; since we’re still limited to 2 a day for old and 3 a day for new series, more packs means collecting more series meaning more cards between more people and more trading. That said, I don’t see how this leads to users buying more packs and I can totally see how this leads to buying fewer packs since there are more cards for trading. Guess we’ll see how it turns out.
