Right now its literally a contest on seeing how rich you are. The new big 5 (or whatever number) with a Robert Cobb is basically unbeatable, not even the old big 5 has anything on it. Either this needs to be changed (limit how many new big 5 you can have) or create a new mode with less cancer.
I would say I last seriously played survivor was when it was a very fair mode before all the leaders got revamped and the new big 5*s got released.
I would say you had a really interesting analysis with the rock paper scissors.
But, who plays 2-3 stars in that mode? And if it is to counter hive you are literally taking away like -6 attack which is honestly nothing in the face of 9+ powers.
I have yet to see a single john doom, and according to your analysis john doom legit loses to everything. Worst stats out of the leaders too.
Eklore > Melody? how
As a veteran player, there is honestly massive power creep. Especially stuff like No love has like no counter.
Robert Cobb isn't a key card in those rainbow decks for sure. It's not like I need those +2 damage from Saitamurai to win or that +1 life and pill from Volkan Cr. Honestly the only counter to BIG cards are exchange cards ( like #Dutchess) but then again such cards get destroyed by SOA
