i think rotation its a mess for the game, when the lcg format was realeased, ffg said that you can play with all your cards every time, if they do rotation this will be a lie.
Im teaching many players and they buy his cards bit a bit because they believe in the politic of ffg "you can use every time" this people are from magic that they are tired of spend his money and months before released a card wizard said "now that card its forbidden", and were is my money?.
Nathan said that there is a huge amount of cards...and its difficult to control, i believe this its a lie, because if you design a card as new preston and you don´t see that its a too powerfull cards, you are a bad designer, the same occur with long lances, (restricted two months after they see the light), all people saw that this cards are very strong and bad for the game, the same at the new kingsguard ( i saw in every deck the combo preston - jaime).
Then we have another stupid stronger card "harry the riverlands" , there is anyone that dont think that this card would be restricted?, its boring play vs a lannister kneeling deck, they knell all characters every turn with this card and in combination with all.
Cities are the plots that the community shout that they must do something, and you can see in every tournament.
Why rotation? better idea it´s better designers and better playtesters or more playtesters to avoid stupid strongest cards.
another point it´s that they forgot all old themes, (tully, bolton, clashman, nightwach......) and they could do every cicle one or two cards about this themes to do this themes more playable, i had a good bolton deck, but today it´s a rubbish because they dont have reinforcements, p.e.
During all tournaments that i had played all players lend cards to all players, i believe this its the spirit of any game , the player who has more cards help the player that have less cards, but... what occur if you do a rotation? i believe many people quit this game, because i know several of them that have few money and they buy the last chapter every month with an enffort and with the ilusion of the words and politic off ffg "you can use your cards for ever"....but if ffg dont do these, im not strange with it, because in my country all people have learn to dont believe in politics promise.
This it´s my thought , sorry for my poor english.
