    You're correct, but are missing that the main thrust of that argument is rarely "the total amount of randomness remains the same" but that "you still end up losing games because of random draws"....

    I'm pretty sure you can select a specific card if you want (The UI definitely exists for it). Though it's possible the system is bugged and the UI that lets you pick a specific card to add to a deck...

    The way cards work in hex it should. (each card is a unique instance with its own state even in your collection, not just a quantity number)

    The specific card transforms so all decks that contain...

    You seem to think it's unreasonable for a deck running cards with a large number of unique thresholds to have to hit those thresholds to be effective. That seems pretty silly to me.

    Which is why...

    I would say the humans are bigots more than broadly evil.
    They didn't listen to the necrotic side of the story, and it's their intolerance of the awakening process that started the conflict and...

    I doubt it.

    You want to talk the design over, because you think it was too destructive of the existing dream deck.

    I think destroying the existing dream deck was the goal of the change, and...

    Well the same principle applies in gold.

    That said, the price floor is probably going away eventually (not in the foreseeable future but in the timeframe of when hex is actually feature complete...

    What they did is force you to run a 5 shard deck in order to use cards that are distributed over all 5 shards.

    There is a lot of threshold fixing in hex so that doesn't seem all that...

    Well, I think the real "auto include" is in the decks going for the 100 card bonuses. Enabling that more is probably good. In a 60 card deck "deck thinners" aren't always desirable (they're hot for...

    This is exactly the nerf I expected.

    As I see it the problem with the dream deck isn't that it was strong (not every strong deck gets nerfed) it's that it largely bypasses the resource system....

    I'm curious what that would do that asking for an opponent with the criteria you specified in chat would not.

    The "tables" idea isn't bad, It juts seems like it's main advantage is that you can...

    Honestly, that would probably be a halfway decent "we want you to come back" ad. At least if they manage to make it look like a parody instead of a serious ad.

    I don't really see how this would work.

    I mean, loot crate types things usually operate under the "excuse to get stuff that isn't moving out of our warehouse" business model, but Hex would have to...

    This doesn't strike me as a very good idea.

    For one thing, you are boosting the rewards of PvP tournaments, as placing gets you tickets. For another the utility of the ranking system seems pretty...

    Probably not a noticeable amount.
    IMO what's 'wrong' with the mulliagin system now is that there's a death spiral where every time you mull the hand you get is less likely to contain a playable...

    Fundamentally the issue here is that not everyone shares the core premis that screw is never fun.

    For example,

    It being obscure is not relevant to my point. It being a UI element is.

    I have been conceding that it was obscure because that gives the 'removing it reduces skill' argument the greatest chance of...

    Platinum as it is implemented now isn't gambling. The difference is the transaction with Hexent is one way. You buy digital goods, and they will not buy them back from you. As such no amount of...

    Not quite. A Draft consumes 24 packs, but rewards 24 packs worth of cards. That is a net loss on average as the utility of an unopened pack should be slightly grater than the expected value of an...
