The target has been achieved. Managed to reach Gold after a frustrating back and forth when i was 100 or so ranks away.
It has been a fun first season learning about the mechanics of the game but i can see that for the most part, better cards or rather investing in the game means more win.
Fingers crossed on the season ending rewards in 7 or so hours. Hopefully there'll be some legendary cards in the mix.
From an investment perspective, the $10 spent on the better cards has meant going from Silver II to Gold III. For an extra 7 rewards cards at the season end and also a couple of additional reward cards in the daily quests, i think it will pay off.
