Well... it's a TCG game, there should be people qualified in the staff for that. If they have issued creating 4/5 starter decks per set just shut down everything.Can verify i enjoy the fairness of that format a lot and it doesn't stop some people from buying multiple if not all theme decks so it certainly doesn't kill your income either. That said it would pretty much require their to be new decks made for every set for there to be enough rock paper scissors in the format.They have this for PS4 players but never implemented it for PC ones. Such a shame, as I think it's a great idea.Just a little suggestion of what can be done in the short-term to attract some new players:
When I stopped playing Hex and and got into Pokémon online I noticed an interesting format that they have called Theme deck. I realised after trying it that it is an awesome intro into a TCG for PVP players. It is a format for players to enter with only pre-constructed decks - levelling the playing fields dramatically. Check it out.
Since HEX already created pre-constructued decks in the store, why not just implement pre-constructed ladder and tournaments also.
Should be a quick and easy win. I definitely believe it works as a format. I was able to get into pokemon quickly and after about a month of Theme format, enter the upper echelons of Standard constructed play.
(Or, you know, if you have a community, maybe even some people might help you do it for some plat and the love to help the game...)
Didnt they had set 10 ready with only the art that needed to be done???? Cant they release it with temporal art since they are gonna work on a new version
