Seems like the starting economy is flooded with packs, but no one has plat. So plat is only obtainable by purchase from the cash shop. Is there any plat in our kickstarter packages? I don't think so. If not we have a lot of packs that aren't worth much plat because of supply and demand.

Any thoughts?

If I am right, cryptozoic is about to make a ton of cash as we buy plat for the drafts. Even if we win packs in drafts they are not going to be worth very much plat right?

I hope there is a trade option. I would like to combine my packs from one of my accounts to the other. I guess we will find out very soon...

There is no way to earn an "infinite" account until trading or auction house is available. No matter how well you do in drafts you have to buy plat to play the next one...

There's no trading yet. It's top of the dev list for the next couple weeks.

I'm up for buying some platinum. I know I'll use it down the road. CZE Beta Development Fundraising Drive? "We've reached our goal of 5,000,000 platinum!" ;)

If my math is right, 5,000,000 plat is $50,000 dollars

So, then every person (from Kickstarter alone) just needs to buy around $5 in platinum :P

I think $1 is 100 plat. I could be wrong. Isn't a draft 300 plat?

The Kickstarter packages will be in the form of codes, so you shouldn't have to trade, you should be able to just redeem the codes all on one account.

You can always sell some packs on auction once it arrives which should arrive in the next couple of weeks. I am sure there will be loads of people buying plat.

That's about right. Once it hits open beta, the rush of income from pack buying will be phenomenal. We can keep the refrigerator stocked until then ;)

1 draft costs 3 packs and a $1 (100 platinum) entry fee

100 plat entry, +200 per pack (in total.) Constructed is 300 I think.

Big question is, will there be day one drafts with prizes tonight? Lots of 250 tier backers will probably be flooding the gates using their first free draft if so.

Hope so. Really hoping drafts start firing like mad. :)

Because that's what they are.

I'm not being jaded. Come on: it's OK to be a child with new toys sometimes. Try having fun.

I doubt packs will be worth much plat in closed beta; everyone here already has had a chance to throw money at the game, and already has several packs to their name.

Once open beta/final product launches, THEN there will be a wave of folks interested in packs at a price below 200P, and you'll have better luck selling then. Or, if you wanna go long, you can hold packs until they go "out of print" and are no longer available from cryptozoic's store. Maybe 4 years from now there will be enough people playing that Set 1 packs are actually rare and worth something,

I disagree, I know hex_colin is gonna be scooping up packs like candy, I'll probably be grabbing a few myself. :). it helps that i'm a limited junky, so I know they will be put to good use :)
