Sorry man. I can’t understand these complaints.
Companies take risks, they develop products and then people buy them or not. If they don’t, they lose money. If they do, they make profit and all these games, books and movies we love continue coming up. It is how the world works.
I don’t know about other lcgs, but in this one, having more tan 700 core cards for 120 bucks doesn’t seem obnoxious AT ALL to me. And you can always share 3 core sets with a friend that plays different clans, and you would have everything you need for just 60 bucks.
