If every deck is unique....

Recommended Posts

Can you not customize decks?   Also, then basically isn't this just a blind-buy, CCG type situation then?    I know we don't know a lot, but it looks great other than those two ideas.

It's actually worse. In a CCG model if you get a good card out of a pack  of bad ones, you can use it. Here  regardless if you are lucky enough to get a good one, if all the rest is garbage it's useless. In he team covenant feed Brad confirmed that it's absolutely possible ( although extremely rare) to come across a deck with 16 times the same card. ( The maverick mechanic apparently allows some cards to be printed in a different faction from time to time). Good or not I bet you will be happy to have a deck where 1 card out of 2 is always the same and you just keep spamming it.

So my question is, if this is randomly generated, isn't it then feasibly possible for two identical decks to be produced? I get that it would be a 1/104,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000  probability but isn't it still feasibly possible?

Technically yes. But the odds for that are astronomical.

Besides they probably have a database of all printed decks and if a new one like it is about to be printed it gets re-randomized.

The decks are not random, they are procedurealy generated to *be* unique.  Otherwise printing the deck list and QR code on the Archon card would be impossible (or at least very error prone).

I strongly suspect each deck is printed one one sheet, cut and packed.  The sheets are generated in house at FFG and sent to the printers.
