My Collectionist mentality keeps me going as I want to have all the cards in the game. With Gladius packs, it is more challenging as the only source is through participating and performing in Guild Brawls. Given my participation and the performance of the Guild, I am averaging enough Merits for only one pack per brawl or three every two brawls. Since the mechanic of combining cards extends to the Gladiator cards, the amount needed relative to the availability of Merits to buy packs is very limited.
Not only the amount of cards needed are challenging but the chance of obtaining lower rarities like Epics and Legendaries as well as Gold Foils make it even more subject to luck. However, the RNG gods were recently with me as I was able to pull my first Gold Foil Legendary of the Gladiators, Fina Voxom for the Fire Splinter! It is a pretty powerful card and despite using with 1 BCX, it has helped me win a number of battles. Another great thing I realized with the GFL pull is the CP value is huge at 50k! This will surely benefit my Collection!
I am very happy with my pull although I continue to lack so many Gladiator cards. It has me working very hard for wins during Brawls which has improved my performance as I am mostly contributing more wins than losses to my team. With more changes to Brawls coming and the potential additional of Merits to normal chest rewards, it may become more interesting in the coming months. Also, the team continues to talk about the utility of the Gladiators when lands are eventually live!
