Me personally I think you should get a special ability as standard a common ability, With a chance of getting a better quality one. It's simply not worth paying real cash to have no ability. I spent real money and I am absolutely not enticed to buy another driver, What if that doesn't have one? That's a lot of real cash wasted. From what I hear having a legendary gives you quite a advantage and for my money I want at least a common. Imo is totally justified to get a basic ability. I've never heard of anyone getting anything good so maybe it's just a con ? Just like the CD in auction is rigged to always give you a bad positive stat. I've not seen a usable CD with good stats.
I've found plenty of decent CD's on the market working my way through the levels so far. So your experience does not line up with mine. You are making a false statement saying that it is rigged.
Right now when I open my market, there are two CD's both with good strengths (Braking and Fuel Economy), weaknesses aren't optimal but you say you never see a good positive stat.
Just to check, you are aware that the cost to add a common ability to a driver without one is 50 tokens. Getting a driver without an ability does not prevent you from ever having one. It is also 50 tokens to upgrade the abilities level 1 tier, or to change it to a different ability.
From your stance then can I assume you believe that a basic talent 30 driver is worth only 20 tokens? What would you say a talent 1 driver is worth?
