There were several guys who had everything unlocked, including every single ultra-rare to level X. The amount of packs it takes to do that is staggering. When asked about it, one of those guys admitted he'd blown "a few thousand bucks" on buying packs. Sadly for him, he still couldn't play for shit.)

I would expect that person to be a company plant or marketing ploy. It stops people from saying "nobody would spend that much money" or "that company is stupid for asking X dollars for Y&Z" etc. At the same time it gives the kids something to wish(whine) for. More than likely A person from the community team or PR dpt with an alt account would be my guess.

That's a possibility, but since we neither have a way to verify it one way or the other, it'll remain a theory. I know plenty of people bought packs (though far more did in the console community, where apparently the e-peen thing is more important.)
