PostSubject: So angry with the step up packs!!   Tue Aug 06, 2013 12:01 pm

Hey guys! I'm really into this game and tried not to spend a huge amount of money in the beginning. But yesterday, i tried the step up packs. Did until step 6 and got NOTHING good!! A bunch of 3* and 4* and some of them repeated on the same pack!!!! I got sooo pissed!!!
Should I try for step 7, spend 50 bucks?? Or should i buy a mega box???
Or just let go?? I only have 5* units and i really want a 6* at least!!

you should really only put money into packs when it will help you for an event. ie, if you are close to the 6* for BT points and need a few extra scores to get her. or say if you really want a pullable unit and you are prepared to go all the way. and really the base chance for a 6* is like .2%.... so even at 10x thats only 2% chance or 1 in 50 chance at a 6*

1.2% at step 6/7 I believe. If you buy 50 Te you just could buy a 6*

people need to start buying te and pots more

the mentality people are having is "ohh i'll only spend a couple bucks and hope i'll get a 6/7*" and it soon becomes "i'll only spend a couple hundred bucks". they then try to recoup by selling their pulls for way more than people are willing to pay and end up gaining nothing as there are others with the same mentality too that also want to get rid of their pulls.

this creates a mass supply of units when the demand isn't that high, causing the value of te/pots to go up as they aren't being injected into our market as quickly as cards are being pulled.

Yeah, i was just thinking that...i've bought some TEs and I think i'll buy some more and choose my own 6*... But i think i'll need about 500 TEs to buy a good one -_-

Thats really up to what you mean as a good one to you.

If by good, you mean rare, nice card art, good looking sprite, AND good stats, than yes, it might cost you 500TE

BUT!
If you just want a decent 6* with good stats, it should cost you about 50-70TE. The pullable 6* are dropping in value as more and more enter the market. If you are willing to spend for the $50, there is already 50TE, add up the free pot and TE you get from Training, and you should already have 55TE in your pocket.

Check out this thread for a bit more info. In short, Morticia, Matahari, Pregare, Petra, Paris (the one I picked), and the one I recommend, Magnus. These can all be had at or under 70TE!

Well you weren't going to pull one that was worth 500TE anyway so it's not like buying TE is going to make you settle for a worse 6* than the one you were going to potentially pull. Besides what if you did buy step 7 and got stuck with Alex lol.

All I can say is.... poor poor Alex Rolling Eyes 

On a serious note, one thing I have learnt, never ever expect buying the step up would guarantee you a 6*, no matter how many step up 7 u buy.

It's like gambling where the only winner is Mobage. You can buy the step up if you think you have a chance on ranking in, then you may consider to buy some for the event items.

Again, the key message is NEVER expect a guaranteed 6*. Go buy te instead. or even better, go buy Ben and Jerry's ice cream! worth every cent, and that step up packs can get you LOADS of ice cream in any flavour you want.

Yeah, probably i should't aim so high right now! All my 5* units i bought with my hard work and TEs at fantasitrade (except for klavier and purifica), and I'm still enjoying my pretty girls Vivianne and Dimages ^^
I'll just buy the TEs and wait for a good offer to appear!! Thanks guys!!

Don't feel so bad friend. Everyone has been tempted by mobage's forbidden fruit. The trick is to scroll really really fast to the RCR when you're looking for trades XD

Probably a bad time to mention getting two 6* and a 7* from my step-7 pack.

I feel like they set it up so some people get a really lucky draw here and there, so they'll talk about it and inspire other people to buy packs. There's no way I got THAT lucky off the RNG alone.

To me that sounds like the RNG is doing its job. It's all gambling. There has to be some people getting lucky alongside dozens of utter disappointment. This time you happen to be the lucky one. Congrats and enjoy your moment. Just keep in mind that such luck is extremely unlikely to happen to you again.

In gaming , the quote - "The more you want it, the more you dont get it" applies often.

Or a more specific name - "Desire Sensor".
