Credit Core Collection
POWER UP...with Credits?!
For awhile several power cores have dominated PvP. Unfortunately for many, these cores were only available for Varium. We want those who spend money to support EpicDuel to get a good value for their generous contributions, but if the game becomes too tilted in favor of Varium players, it can become a boring, if not hostile, experience for players who love the EpicDuel but cannot buy Varium. Walking this fine line between empowering Varium users without alienating Credit-only players has been a challenge as old as EpicDuel itself.
To help restore a bit of power to Credit-only players, we've made cores that had previously been Varium-only available for Credits. Please note that some of these cores are slightly less powerful than their Varium counterparts so there will still be a distinction for those who choose to purchase Varium. If this feature is popular enough, we can do the same for more Varium-only cores.
