At first I WAS disappointed with their bonus...
THen I saw backlash, I WAS disappointed again...
The cards SEEM mediocre at first, but UR is smart with NOT foolishly releasing cards that are OP.
But believe it or not, I'm NOT disappointed
To me, their seeming "mediocreness" cleverly disguises their MASSIVE base stats (as previously mentioned).
In many ways, Berzerk
cleverly brings something new to the table.
- opponents SOA will be more of a "help" (for YOU) for the first time.
- 3* 8/4, -2 opp life min 6!?! We haven't seen that kind of raw power since Lyse Teria Cr
BASE STATS WHOO!
- The new ability "Backlash" ALLOWS UR to create OP (than usual) base stats... (a.k.a. something new to the table)
- New type of mind game (as previously mentioned). Are they trying to win with backlash? Or did they 0 pill?
The arrival of the LDs' ("UNDERpowered-ness"
shows UR's increasing cautiousness in creating new cards' stats. New card releases as of late seem more and more "weak" compared to releases like Jackie, the Tan Man, or DJ Korr... It is BETTER/safer (for UR battle mechanics) to create cards that are a bit weaker than we want because cards like that are less likely to mess with UR's delicate balance.
