    The oak/acorn/squirrel change is pretty lame but I guess unavoidable. It's a shame we're losing the art on the sleeves, though, I really loved that sleeve art. I wish they'd just changed "lotus" to...

    Y'know, even if this comparison were valid, and it isn't, it would be horribly offensive.

    The better analogy -- as I pointed out above -- is paparazzi and celebrities. Paparazzi are assholes but...

    . . . unless your opponent shows you his hand. That's the thing; he did. In most competitive card games, online or off, people in competitive play don't choose to show their hands.

    If Hex Entertainment takes any action at all on this, the preferable choice would probably be to require a stream delay or a card shield or both. But the best choice is probably just to warn people...

    It's also the same, in terms of gameplay advantage, as if your opponent said "I'm going to show my hand to you now" then deliberately turned his cards to face you.

    If they'd moved sooner people would have complained they were moving too fast.

    I expect that there will be counters added in the next set and this card may get un-banned in future.
