I should clarify, In the normal game yearly characters are 25k renown (in game money you earn when you win/lose). It takes maybe 2-3 weeks? There's about 16 of these yearly characters to buy at this price point (and growing). They aren't "better" per say, just another very different style of play. In the starter edition it requires 50k per.. So it gives you the flavour of the game as you get a few normal characters to start off but ultimately you either spend 6 weeks grinding per character or buy the year 3 pack, which is about £30 on its own. Like I say, I only use 5-6 per side, but they are mostly year characters, don't want to go that cheap (embarrassed)
Ah I see, that's annoying and confusing.
Yeah.. Do not get the starter addition.. It will double the requirement for all characters. Meaning you have grind for ever to get anything (annoyed). Think of that as an expensive demo.. I dunno why they've done that. It puts people off playing the game.
