So my two cents to add to this discussion.
So I think the pod system is a really cool, and a great way to play a CGC/LCG without being a deck builder person. My wife really likes it, the only deck limits she had to worry about is the objective limits. She grabs the five cards with the objective x 10, and boom there is her deck.
But there is another side to this pod system, and this is the lack of variety in decks. In high-end events for any game you have the people who are min/maxing everything they play. But normally you have a little variety within those deck. For example in Netrunner there are times where it feels like everyone is playing NBN, but there are still variations of the same deck type. Different cards people add here and there to fit their play style better. Times where you go "wow I didn't see that card coming".
In SW LCG you just don't have enough of that. If everyone brings the 10 best DS objectives everyone else will have the same deck. This is where the "OMG PEOPLE ONLY PLAY X=META DECK" deck is coming from.
I'm more then likely wrong. I just think if they removed the pod system, still had resource matching, and had a 2-4 of each card limit. It would open up so many more option and variations.
