I think the facts speak for themselves that the winningest deck concepts get overrepresented in overall play and tournament placement, and I'm as sick as anybody else of seeing another boring Weyland "I Win" button, or so many Andy decks I'm just going to start calling her Number Six.
We got in an extra copy of the Season 2 Game Night kit, and aside from the Macs and the playmat, everyone around here is unenthused about more alt-art copies of Scorched Earth after seeing them in such great quantity during the Plugged-In Tour. So to shake things up, I proposed two guidelines:
- No Core set Corporate IDs.
- No Core set Consoles.
I thought it would be a modest step to get people out of the existing molds since ETF, BABW, and Desperado are probably the cards most overused right now. Criminal decks--Andy or Gabe--get a big boost of getting paid money for something theyd be doing anyway.
Unfortunately, most of my play group thought it was a terrible idea and threatened to stay away if that were the case. Personally, I was hoping that the Draft format would be out already, as that is a fun alternative by all accounts.
