Re: General thoughts post-Major

Reporting this post because of the hate on Sebulba... I'm guessing you're trying to be funny, but there is a lot of quality and substance to TacoBills's post. It's irreverent for the first reply from a red handle to be nothing more than a bad joke. But the 2nd post from the playtesting lead should ...

Re: General thoughts post-Major

To be frank, (almost) every time a public cbt thread is started, we start one internally or discuss on slack. So that’s probably a decent “watch list” indicator. For example, a lot of us don’t think R2 is an issue at all but I’d expect a few changes to be pushed out that include him because of that...

Re: General thoughts post-Major

If anything, me commentating is more advantageous for the guy not on the team--he gets to hear my thoughts. My teammate will already hear those thoughts, now the guy he's playing will get them too. 100% this. When I was commentating last weekend I gave my view on how to play certain decks, disclosi...

Re: General thoughts post-Major

Lots of really good thoughts here, Bill. Thank you for taking the time to write this. FWIW, I think it would be best to split this into multiple posts, to discuss the subtopics separately. Meta It is really interesting that your numbers show high win rates for certain dark decks. But light is so muc...

Re: Spice Mines - Targeting a Trooper

Perhaps the weirdest thing about this interaction is that if Trooper B is lost, then as per Spice Mines Of Kessel, the captive (escorted by Trooper A or Boba Fett or whoever) is released (prompting LS to choose Escape or Rally). Again, even though they may be at totally separate locations. Thanks s...

Spice Mines - Targeting a Trooper

Let's say I have Trooper A holding Captive X. I play Spice Mines of Kessel and target Captive X and Trooper B (not currently escorting a captive) "to escort captive." Subsequently, I move Trooper A and Trooper B to Kessel where the utinni effect is deployed. Trooper B never escorts Captive X. Questi...

I hate your analogy. Diff is like if we awarded division winners on run differential as a tiebreak rather than record in division.
Sabremetricians would love that since run diff is usually a better indicator of over all win/loss than actual records.

Re: TMW Feedback

Oh, I loved that there was differential for this event. SOS generally seems better, but having one event with diff a year is sweet.

Re: TMW Feedback

TMW was a difficult event to plan the streaming for. Many of the commentators were also playing and could not cover large blocks of time. I provided commentary most of the weekend, here is what I would suggest: Centralized sign ups to establish beforehand who will be commentating each round. Rank th...

Not complaining (yet) but instead speculating.

Re: MOAGA (Make Old Allies Great Again!)

Try building the deck differently. I was having success with the deck just two months ago, before I took a break. Rather than POAS, which your opponent can run away from, 2x it's a hit would be more effective - they grab that or leadership. The bigger issue for the deck is ISB being such a bad match...
