You can see his point; its frustrating to find an item that one might wish to gain, but which is not in any way related to normal in game mechanics. Almost any other in game item can be gained through spending time - pvp items, raiding items (though these also require a guild ofc), even the random drops can be ground out eventually through time (eg the firefly in Zangarmarsh). World BOEs are the exception, sort of, but ofc you can simply grind cash and wait for it to appear on the AH.Sure, these cards have no real in-game value, but being made to buy a deck of cards you might not want to gain an item in-game that you DO, clearly goes against the normal way of gaining items in World of Warcraft, whatever that item may be.I'm not suggesting that no-one plays the card game. Nor am I saying that "omg I HAVE to buy the cards because i HAVE to have the chicken/kite/etc." I'm simply saying that given that almost any other in game item can be gained by actually participating in the game itself, it does seem as though these loot cards are there primarily to sell decks to people who just want the in game item.(Yes I realise some people will actually use the decks; good for them, but whilst I have no numbers to suggest how many people buy the decks simply for the in game items with no caring for the game itself, i suspect its not as small a number as some people might think.)
