was the Price of packs increase to 50p justified?

You may select 1 option

This years price per booster packet went up a massive 25%

Is this justified with the addition of the free online Live feature?

Well, I suppose it could be justified, but the 07/08 season's packets were 35p!! I know I've done this on another topic but anyway:

1 pack of Match Attax 07/08 - £0.35
1 pack of Match Attax 09/10 - £0.50

15p. Not a big deal at all.

10 packs of Match Attax 07/08 - £3.50
10 packs of Match Attax 09/10 - £5.00

£1.50. Not really that a big a deal. But this is where it starts to get scary.

100 packs of Match Attax 07/08 - £35.00
100 packs of Match Attax 09/10 - £50.00

£15!!!! Then :O :

1000 packs of Match Attax 07/08 - £350.00
1000 packs of Match Attax 09/10 - £500.00

£150.00!! Now I'm just getting carried away:

10000 packs of Match Attax 07/08 - £3500.00
10000 packs of Match Attax 09/10 - £5000.00

I know that last comparison was a little bit carried away, but still, it's a pretty big shock: £1500 difference!!
I am a very trusted trader

Considering what other card games cost I think it's a good price. For example, Magic the Gathering is approx £2.50 a pack of 15 cards (as are other CCGs like this). I think 50p a pack is a good price for an 'entry level' CCG.
Also, in the US sports cards (basic ones) cost between $1 & $5 per pack (and some of the premium format ones are in excess of $200 per pack!!!), so we have it easy.

There's also inflation to consider

I think that its slightly too much, if you are just getting a few packs for every two packs you buy now you could buy almost three packets

no justice for the average buyer, it's all for bits of card, they could've got away with selling it for 35p still :/
