Obviously I don't know the purchasing info, so it may be that a lot of people buy this. If so, then forget everything in this post. (Will wait for Dev confirmation) But if people are selling packs for 20-24 points already, it seems like anyone fairly active int he community would simply buy from other players rather than get this giant amount of points and get 2 extra packs. So (again, IF I'm right in assuming that the 950/40 is rarely bought) should it be lowered?

Perhaps 450 for 20 packs

Anyone else have any opinions towards this?

If you lower the price in the shop it would automatically influence the price in the community. At the end we would pay 1 point for a pack ;)

Lots of people are buying packs from the online store. However, Witcher is correct (as usual). The market price for packs in any game like this will always be a few points less than the online price. That is why we cannot generally award points as prizes. Even if people buy packs from other players, they still need to buy points from the company.

That is the way the economy works in every game like this and it is why Witcher and other good players will never need to buy points -- he can just win packs and sell them. In Magic Online, when you could play for free -- because your winnings more than covered tournament costs, it was called "going infinite" because you could play an infinite number of tournaments.
