I have 155 packs plus primals. I plan to open 35 and leave the rest for drafting. That should be all the packs I need til set 2 comes out.

I already blew through 5 packs out of boredom. I am doing everything I can to prevent myself from causing any more damage.

I bought 5 and busted 21 just to get a good start. Still got 30 boosters and enough Plat for drafts.

Yeah, I meant to save most, but went through 14 of 50 so far. I probably wouldn't have, but matches don't seem to be working today

Oh you weak, weak creatures. I haven't touched any of my packs yet, that's how strong-willed I am! *Pats himself on the back*

You should reward yourself by opening some booster packs.

This! I cracked packs until I busted open a Legendary. It only took me 4 packs! Oshawa

I had intended not to open packs until either a keep what you brought draft was added, or sealed entree fee and prizes were doubled, in which case I'd open them via those formats. Instead I've already opened quite a large number of packs. I think at some point I got that gamblers falacy into my head that I had to be close to finally opening a legendary, its been over 10 packs with out one, surely ones around the corner... but many packs have now been opened and 0 legendaries have been pulled so I finally finally I forced myself to give up in defeat before I opened all 155 and went 0/155 on legendaries.

I think I really forgot just how fun and addictive pack opening is, even with the pack opening being glitched so every other pack I have to force exit and have no clue what cards (though I kept checking card manager and confirming no legedandaries had shown up) I kept going. This is why I don't gamble when friends or family take me to casinos lol.

After reading this thread I decided to open packs until I snagged a legendary... First pack Zombie Plague :))

Only uncommon chest though :(

Now I just need to resist trying again ;o

Darn you people, talked me into continuing to try. 16 packs down... and.. finally got a legendary! Except... after not having any issues opening since I came back on, the legendary one crashes -_- only knew it was legendary cause of the red aura. Was so excited too, not nearly as fun just seeing it in my card manager as the big turn around reveal would have been.

Oh well, at least now that I finally got one I can go to sleep tonight lol. Reginald Lancaster for any curious.

I have opened 35 packs so far which is 25 more than I had planned. I wanted to save them all for drafting but my will is weak when it comes to pack opening.

On the bright side I ended up with 8 legendary cards out of those 35 packs alone so I was pretty pleased :-)

:O I got 4 legendaries from opening 15 packs. XD 2 Argus and an Eye of Creation.

I couldn't keep myself from not opening any. I was able to just get away with opening two though. I started with 25, bought 1000 plat and cashed 200 in on a pack. So now I have 24 packs and 800 plat. Good for 8 tourneys. Gonna try to make that stretch for a while. The plan is to play just one draft every two nights or so... I know I won't be able to resist more though.

I have yet to open any of mind either. Simply haven't had the time so all the current issues being experienced on server/trny side our of little affect to me.

Don't get me wrong. I'll have time soon and I'm hopeful we will draft working again.

Only 100 plat per trny? Not bad, not bad at all..

I opened one and got Hideous Conversion and stopped right there lol. 24 packs left is a nice multiple of three for 8 drafts

I have opened all my primals + 2 packs out of 155, figured 153 which has an even 3 split is the same as 155 since i dont intend on buying any set 1 boosters at all, i'm saving all my plat for drafts and VIP.

After opening my primal packs I just had to open a few of my 155 packs so I opened 26 got 1 legendary (eye of creation) rest im saving for drafts.

I opened 16 of my 17 primals and about 75 of my 600 normals packs. Opening packs is so fun and realistically I won't be able to do much more than the 3 free drafts a week I have.

No packs opened, and none will be opened but for sealed/draft. No reason NOT to at least play sealed, since the goal is to play the game.....

opened up all 12 of my primal packs so I got a pretty good number of legendaries and rares (although I always seem to get multiples of the unique ones lol). Opened up 5 normal packs so far and managed to resist temptation on any more since then, although if draft/tournaments don't open up soon i'll probably be opening more.

On a sidenote, I think we can forget all these doom and gloom predictions about booster packs going for under 1$ once the AH gets implemented... all it takes is just a few days without tourneys and ppl open all their packs out of sheer boredom! ;)

I opened 1 out of 865 and 0 of my Primals. Iron will.

Cory is counting on people like you! :P

And me. :(

Oh well, you can calculate it all you want, but getting near a playset (I know some people just trade for their tournament decks but I want to beat PvE ;-)) will alone take what? A lot more than 300 boosters? I am sure somebody has done the math, but I can't find it.

That would mean that apart from the relatively few "super-backers" not many cards will be left over. Especially once the first wave of Closed Beta invitees hits, who didn't get to kickstart.

Colin is right: It's a good idea to gobble up all cheap Set 1 boosters.

Icracked my primals, and then cracked 4 packs specifically for 4 pack Thursday with Funktion. The will is strong with this one, though looking at the 151 unopened packs in the inventory is kinda..well.. I'll just logout for a while before I start twitching

Opened 5 packs yesterday and pulled 1 legendary. 5 packs today and struck out. I want to limit myself to 5 a day, but pack opening goes by so quickly O_O

I opened my one and only Primal pack and 5 out of 155 packs of my King rewards. I got 2 legendary cards and a legendary chest out of the 5 regular boosters so it's almost like I opened two Primal packs.

I busted 45 of my 245 packs on sheer whim. I planned to only do 5, but the 10 at a time button was calling to me and I like round numbers. Busted 5 legendaries including eye, Angel, Gabe, and uruunaz, so I live with no regrets. =D

I won't have nearly as much time to play in tournaments as a lot of people will (two kids = 3-hour time slots don't exist often), so I cracked open a bunch of packs and probably will open more later. I figure at best I'll have time for 10-20 tournaments in Set 1.

Interestingly, my primal packs were also full of eye of creation, gabriel, and uruunaz (multiples of them, in fact)

I opened 6 normal packs and got no legendaries, although I did get one uncommon chesT!

I opened 35 of my 155 packs, cause I wanted some cards to play around with.

Otherwise I have an Iron Willl, yes indeed...

Well, maybe just 1 more...

Interesting...I have 2 eye of creations (1 from primal 1 from reg pack) and I heard a bunch of people getting eyes as well. I wonder if eye is one of the more common legendaries.

I opened just my 6 Primals to flesh out the starters a bit more. I'm waiting on my other 155 for sealed. Thankfully, there are things like Dark Souls II and a regular board game group to keep me distracted until then.

Thraeg
04-25-2014, 03:08 PM
Yep, I'm saving my regular packs for drafting, but went ahead and cracked my primals. So my decks are full of random rares and epics with none of the staple commons.

I opened 5 packs to drop to a neat 60, as well as the pair of Primal packs that I got. Considering my next course of action, as I'm in mostly for the PvE. :o

Opened 4 of my 25 (allows me 7 drafts). Got Vampire King in the last pack.

04-25-2014, 05:26 PM
In addition to my 4 primals, I opened 5 packs.
I pulled three vampire kings and stopped. Figured that was good enough.

I have opened ~400 packs and have no eyes or angels so once trading is implemented hit me up got quite a few legendaries I can trade you.

Also, I have no will power rather just pay for drafts then try and fight it. Don't judge me.
