I am at 278 now and finally got the dumb Rat King gun. Finished it with just shy of 6.5 minutes.
The gun itself is alright but I didn't realize how close you have to be to one another. I thought the damage bonus was just if the people on your team had it equipped. You all have to be actively using it and be in pretty close proximity for the effect to trigger. Womp.
Obviously worth the several hours you spent on it right ?

Actually ran into a strange bug.
Joined a game already in process w/my Krogan lvl 14?
Spawned as a generic red shirt (red armor color scheme), Lvl 1. human male soldier. He had no consumables, no skills, nothing. Just the default Avenger AR & Katana shotgun w/out mods. We still won the Silver match...I'm just glad I didn't get kicked before extraction. Though likely no on noticed and if they did it was too late.
Recap/reward screen showed lvl 14 Krogan for me despite playing as a lvl 1 human. (shrugs)
PSA: new equipment item in the ME:A MP store. Biotic Amp armor...for those that need everything nowza.
you probably spawned in that alternate reality where Shepard succumbed to the Krogan mating calls on Tuchanka

(tips his hat to gotdott for the silver tour)
Yeah, human vanguard is pretty strong...where as Havoc Trooper, I have no idea what's going on in a map that has a ceiling. Firebase Sandstorm though is great. I think it's time to re-evaluate and respec the trooper, or just start playing the Krogan Merc I pulled from the last pack I bought last night.
I should be on around the same time tonight for more MP.
apparently my friend fell asleep on me
maybe some gold tonight??

From what I have read it apparently does stop giving you duplicates once you have maxed them. The game being so new however I wouldn't necessarily trust that as fact as it has just been rumblings here and there on various websites, nothing official.
Like you said Overwatch and games like it turn your duplicates into currency. I have not heard anything about duplicates being turned to currency so I would wager it is because they don't give you them once they are maxed? (or again because the game is like a week old haha but I am sure there is someone who knows because they already have nearly everything.. o.O)
I personally have only bought the higher tier boxes myself anyway haha though I feel like I have convinced my own self to start just buying the cheaper ones. : P
Dug a bit deeper. PC Gamer says the following in one of their articles:
How to spend your currency
Stick with Basic packs until both your starting Common weapons and classes reach rank 10. You’ll see immediate benefits: each increasing class rank bestows a higher base skill point allotment to further augment your powers on a fresh character. Weapon stats will become better tuned for damage and weight efficiency. Most importantly, fully maxing your Common inventory removes their inclusion in future pack loot tables, increasing your chances of getting better gear from the more expensive packs.
After you’ve begun dipping into Silver matches, start buying Advanced packs to round out your Uncommon quality items and classes. Ideally, you want to mirror the same max-rank end-goal as you met for your Common stuff, but this is where the grind turns heavy; be patient and make sure to get your Apex dailies done for fat Credit bonuses. Once you hit rank 10 for your roster and armaments, you’re primed for the high-damage and high-reward big leagues.
Lastly, skip the Expert packs and go straight for the juicier Premium packs. For double the Credit price, you get a better chance at coveted Ultra-Rare unlocks alongside the two guaranteed and powerful Rare items. At this point, your class stable should be bristling with power and gear, and you shouldn’t have much trouble acing numerous Silver and Gold matches to dump Tempest-loads of Credits into your wallet. Continue using your excess Credits on Premium packs to hunt after specific weapons to your liking—some popular picks include the Mattock assault rifle, Equalizer pistol, Raptor sniper rifle, or Scattershot shotgun.
Again that isn't fact but it sounds good to me hah
Can confirm you don't get duplicates
I've maxed out all my commons and most of my uncommons - basic packs are an overpriced supply pack to me at this point since that's all I get.
Also it's good to buy loads of basics because you can get the +consumable upgrades (missiles, revives) from these along the way
