Re: Flattening the Curve

If that is the field, then 2 things. 1. That is a poorly designed field and we should look at why the meta has ended up that way. We should rethink our way of designing decks and the processes in place for them because we should not end up in a meta like that. The goal should be everything near the...

Re: Flattening the Curve

It should be obvious what objectives have had attention and haven’t. The proof is what are in the virtual sets and what isn’t. It is not a misleading statement because again the proof is what are in the virtual sets. There are a significant amount of cards not being used that are both decipher AND ...

Re: Flattening the Curve

There’s also some decipher objectives that in my opinion should be forever unplayable, or completely redone via virtual objective. Dbo and rtp come to mind I'd give it more hope then that, especially given they are non-existent now. If we balance them by buffing them but not to the point of making ...

Re: Flattening the Curve

It should be obvious what objectives have had attention and haven’t. The proof is what are in the virtual sets and what isn’t. That's why I asked the question. I don't think you know what is in the virtual sets because almost every single Decipher objective has a helper in the current virtual cards...

Re: Flattening the Curve

I'd be curious to hear from the current d&d members, in an official capacity, on how many decks they're targeting to be viable. Just a number (or small range) would be sufficient, unless you want to add commentary. 1-3? 3-5? 5+? Other? Who all is on D&D anyways? I'd be curious too to see their resp...

Re: Flattening the Curve

Let's take this logic and take any category such as activation: TRM activates so much so fast relative to other decks -> Increase Dark Side decks activation -> Compensate by increasing light side decks activation -> Activate 12 force by 2nd turn -> Decks with highest fastest activation become the b...

Re: Flattening the Curve

Believing in the idea that it is actually good to NOT balance by having a few competitive decks in the meta is very dangerous thinking. lol, where did anyone ever say that it's good to NOT balance? If you reach a point where there are 3 top-tier decks for each side, and all 6 can be teched to the p...

Re: Flattening the Curve

It's this logic and thinking, which by the way is not a knock on you as there are many other people that also ascribe to it, accelerates power creep and makes the game less fun. So, straight back to telling me what makes the game fun to me, huh? You already asked me if having just a few top tier de...

Re: Flattening the Curve

Hunter why do you feel there should only be a top few tier decks? Isn't that redundant and not as much fun to play? No? When I was referring to Rock Paper Scissors many people have said on the forums that when you have too many top tier decks it becomes just "RPS" and they believe randomness Yes, I...

Re: Need some Padawan Training

Yessir I think you'll find if you log into GEMP and talk on the chat there you'll find a plethora of people willing to help in any way they can. There are also specific formats, and notes you can add in, to let someone know you are a New And Returning Player (NARP) and that will help out greatly as ...

Re: Flattening the Curve

completely disagree with any notion that there should only be a few top tier decks There should only be a few top tier decks.

Re: I’ve been looking forward to this (set 13 spoiler).

The trade-off is not being able to force lightning. In a deck with no emperor to pull it, like asm, not much of a trade-off at all. But hey, happy to see ASM get some help. It's an interesting deck. Right no force lightning, but force lightning you need to draw a destiny in hopes of the outcome and...

Re: I’ve been looking forward to this (set 13 spoiler).

Yeah I guess I'm pretty confused by this too. Now Dooku is another auto-include. So with this text: Deploy 6 / forfeit 8 Defense value +1 while armed with a lightsaber. Jedi here are power and immunity to attrition -1. During battle or lightsaber combat involving Dooku, may cancel and redraw an oppo...

Re: Flattening the Curve

I think we should have the goal of moving all decks to Tier 1, so as to work to eliminate tiers altogether which are bad IMO, and completely disagree with any notion that there should only be a few top tier decks (but am open to thoughts otherwise). Yes the meta will show us what migrates more one w...

Re: Flattening the Curve

Man, I love this dialogue since I absolutely love the 'balancing' aspect of the game. From my experience, I have noticed Joe understands balancing very well, and has the ability to make predictions that come true. I think some people are blessed with that ability more so than others. I also think Ha...

Re: Flattening the Curve

I'm thrilled with almost all of these changes. Just my two cents for D&D to consider (if they hadn't already): Wokling v & TRM - What if we had on wokling that it cost 1 force to play Speak or Wesa? That gives the early activation to help TRM off the bat, but slows its super fast early game activati...

Re: Flattening the Curve

This statement makes me so happy, as it was one of the areas I observed was an issue in how we have been turning the meta towards: “There has been a rash of characters designed with "Interrupt-style" game text. Decks are becoming more character-based and less "red." And whenever Design has wanted to...

Re: Flattening the Curve

... I think it's fantastic D&D listened to feedback, watched the meta, and was willing to do so much at once. Really looking forward to Set 13! Agreed. This is something I've been wanting for a while. The courage to do bigger changes. And you have delivered on several occasions of late! Couldn't ag...

Re: Flattening the Curve

I like most of the changes, especially the no idea ones. Wokling... there were other ways to handle TRM, this seems very heavy handed. Legend - I get the thematics, but part of the reason this deck runs Qui, Obi, etc is because the resistance character base is so thin on strong characters, other th...
