I’m not being passive-aggressive, but feel free to think I am. After all, mods consider all my posts to be passive-aggressive, cynical, rude or whatever so it doesn’t really matter in the end. Anyway, I don’t see how me linking your existing thoughts on the matter is bad for discussion, even if they didn’t encourage you to make the thread they do provide more content relevant to the discussion.
Would you mind elaborate on that? Because the card gets free value only when it lives through the enemy turn which can then proceed to do damage and technically take no damage themselves. And such cards are balanced in way so when something like that happen they’re still not over the top, that’s why they changed the previous sunsteel from what it was to now.[quote=“Althur, post:6, topic:4297”]
Just look at what a 2/2 Forcfield minion spawned from Kron can do.
Forcefield and Rush are strongest keywords in the vacuum. It’s no wonder those are the strongest prisoners as all of them share the same stats so it’s only natural the ones with the best abilities will prevail. That’s why people assumed prisoners will have the same keywords as Pandora’s wolves to compensate for the variance in power between keywords. Problem there is not the Forcefield, or for that matter Rush as a mechanic itself. Problem is how they’re strong keywords yet tokens are not balanced in a way to compensate for it but are all the same.
If we are going to look at it that way, then it doesn’t matter what we’re talking about. Literally any mechanic can be considered problematic because in the future there is a chance the game will introduce stronger cards with said mechanic. It’s not about looking at bigger picture as much it’s about being paranoid overly suspicious
Sure the mechanic is strong in the vacuum and you could argue how there is bigger chance of it breaking the meta at some point compared to some other mechanics. But in the end, just like DW, enemy has an entire turn to deal with the threat so it will always be at least manageable. Luckily CPG is getting better when it comes to dealing with broken cards so I’m not worried. For reference, fact that Kron is considered to be the strongest card is actually an amazing thing.
