In a PVP game im always open to playing any faction, if by choice then i usualy choose Darkside, if it was a multi faction pvp setting lets say
Bounty Hunters guild
Karddes Smugglers Alliance
And any others i cant recall at the moment lol
man now that i put all those potential factions in its a very tough choice. hmmm
I think id alternate between Empire decks, Bounty Hunter decks and Sith decks. I have always had multiple decks and always enjoyed deck building and customization just as much if not sometimes more so then playing the game.
While i love the Coop format, (still love the pvp more, but coop is a nice fresh alternative) I think the coop format suffers from lack of competitive deck building. I mean with PVP u have to constantly be making new decks and changing strategies based on the decks that your opponents are playing. It puts much more emphasis on the whole customizable card game deck building. With coop well, with LOTR i just throw in some of the new power cards and cut some of the stuff i never use. There isnt too much thought, Usually im just adjusting 3-5 cards per adventure pack if even that depending on what the adventure pack focuses on. Theres no real drive to try and make the ultimate deck to decimate my opponents, theres no challenge to building a deck, not sure if that the right word but im sure u know what i mean lol
But yeah back on topic id prolly end up playing my empire deck most as gaming companies always tend to make the empire the strongest military wise.
