TOPIC: Condensed Packs

Condensed Packs 5 years 4 months ago #1

I've waited on pre-ordering tokens about as long as possible by now and have a question that I'm hoping you all can help me with. I've never requested the condensed packs and have been considering doing so this year since I will be purchasing more than ever before. For those of you who have done so I ask; Is there any significant difference in doing so?

Other than the obvious differences noted in the Tokens section of the website, do you feel it is worthwhile to do so, is the reduction in time spent sorting tokens and sending them all in if they are not condensed worth the reduction in time spent opening packs with friends? I would likely only be condensing of my order if I do so but have been struggling with these questions for quite some time. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

Less tokens to lug around. Less tokens to send in to get exchanged. I have been doing condensed for a few of years and just like how much it saves in having to deal with. I know that are some large buyers that still like cracking each pack. More power too them. After so many packs I get bored with it. Dumping the uncommons and rares out and sorting through that works the same for me. I have to sort through them to find my random UR's.

That is just my two cents.

for me it's also slightly cheaper postage (international) and I have had a GT in a condensed pack if that is a concern.

if you are a collector, you dont get any plats of the commons..
i get as much condensed as I can. it saves me so much on shipping all the commons in (and time sorting etc)

edit..wrote uncommons and not commons..fixed that

From the condensed section: 240 Random Uncommon tokens (10% of these will be platinum backed)

I always get platinum Uncommons.

Ryan: I am doing condensed for the first time this year too.

The only downside for me is that the last two years I made small bags of commons for friends (tokens with situational bonus and tools). But... those barely mattered last year, other than having the 2013 mirrors without even knowing there would be a medusa.

Right. I usually play with pugs that almost always end up being new people so having those commons that I dont care too much about losing is nice. The sorting and shipping last year was a pain though and im getting even more this year.... ill probably end up condensing half my rode and see how I like it

There are some commons worth having, mostly pots and scrolls, and sometimes gear, so I usually get between $250 and $1k in "regular" and the rest condensed. It's fun to crack some packs, but the fun fades pretty quickly.

I agree with what the majority of folks are saying. Condensed purchases saves time and shipping. The few commons you may want, you can trade, purchase or work on. Usually a $250 value pack will net you the commons you want. The money and time you save on shipping is invalueable!

I just like cracking open the packs... But yes you save on shipping stuff back!
