Some (like myself) just didnt know HOW big a penalty you received... I always wondered how I could go an entire tourney with maybe only one or two losses and still end up sooooo far behind the leaders :P
@aaa I totally agree with you. Deathwatch and survivor are the gong show, muscle flexing, show me your op, formats. I would love if they were also the only place for leaders. It bothers me that room is left in dt for people who are unaware of the point system to screw with people who are working hard to win. It's not like if you get screwed in a tournament you can just hit up the next one and try again. That may have been your entire gaming time for the night. It's an hour long, with an hour in between! Get unblockable Leader abilities out of dt. (Ha, or make Leader abilities stop if your Leader loses. Now that would be entertaining.)
What a great idea would be is that you get a bonus if you play against penalty characters. If you are playing for a good DT score it is pretty irritating if you end up against decks with Ambre, Caelus Cr and Kolos etc. With a bonus for playing against this cards it would lower the pain for playing against them, just a thought
@ Mr Intelijent that made me laugh.
Usually when I play against Leader decks, I let them know that the Leader gives them a -10 points. They may not care, but I like to think that some are ignorant of the penalty, so I enlighten them.
I would like to see the penalty list updated. Almost all the characters on the penalty list are ELO banned, the ones that aren't were just released from the ELO banned list, like Sledg.
