Around 30 for a top tier with win of the day, maybe 60 or so with absolutely no win of the day bonuses. Compared to this where it could take 150 or more, or around 100 with the level 10 and 20 merit bonuses. Hopefully the patch helps.

Maybe, but a more likely situation is everyone plays other MOBAs with more fair prices and smoother gameplay, making this game shut down. I would have no problem at all buying a founders pack if I felt the game deserved it, but with the game in it's current state, I just can't justify it. It has a good framework to be something great(and I really want it to be great), it just falls short in some places.
