I don't think the game should change based on what works and doesn't work in a highly competitive environment.


Some interesting thoughts - thanks for posting them. But this caught my eye. It sounds like you are advocating for no changes to VTES of any kind. Does that include a ban on new cards? Should we stop printing cards that attempt to shore up strategies or clans that aren't doing well? I'm not trying to put words in your mouth, just trying to understand what you mean by this.

I also host a google doc which separates the TWDA into clans . That means I track how often clans win, which crypt groups get used, and how many people attend events. You can access all of that info here:

No and no. For example, I have no problem with Jumulon's Axe (equipment that cancels grapple cards such as Immortal Grapple), or if a similar type of card were printed in the future. I prefer the approach of printing counter cards to existing counter cards instead of fundamentally changing how S:CE or Immortal Grapple work. I believe the concept of counters canceling counters works well in card games, which is where our opinions differ.

Yes I distinctly remember Rickstock buying out Lasombra. Not nice.
