just found this thread while digging through the forum
personally, i was one of the players who quit the old BF.. just want to tell why:
-too slow progress (collecting cards)
-pay to win (this wouldn't be the case here)
-it was dying.. (small player base)
-getting stomped in pvp (no good cards, and no clue what i am doing at all)
so in my opinion, your guys focus on "how much time to get a full deck if i play 6 hours a day" is kind of egoistic, isn't it?
if we don't want battleforge to die again, we have to get new players to this awsome game,
and if you need to play a week to get a nice card you want, they won't stay, no matter how nice the game mechanics are.
But there is another thing i want to mention too:
If you guys are worried about how fast you get your full card collection:
-you will trade anyway and make a lot of profit with it (new players don't do that, because the don't have the knowlege to do it)
-you guys don't have to learn all the stuff of this game from the beginning, THAT ALONE give you an advantage about arround 30-40% of the community (i rly hope that new player's come)
-if you don't want to get all your cards in 3 month, just don't trade for 6hr a day..
just to name some things that are common for you, but new players have no clue what this shit is about: void energy, power advantage, lost souls (yea, a new player DONT KNOW WHAT ******* LOST SOULS is about!), bandits, amii monument (remember you saw this thing the first time and wanted it so bad?).
That's why in my opinion this is a huuuuge topic, because all a new player want, is to get better!
And if we don't attract new players to this game, it will be just like the old battleforge (100-200 active players?) instead of maybe 10k active players, imagine that!
To get back to topic, in my opinion it would be a good ratio to play arround 4-6 hr for a booster (as mentioned anyway), on the one hand because i like the math Nick did
But on the other hand i like the idea that someone wo is reading gaming news like "community revives battleforge" just testing this awsome game for 6hr and then get his first booster.
sry for the long text, the bad english, and for posting in an old thread here is a pizza
