This weekend, we will modify the rules of the Daily Tournaments.
These changes will be online from today at 14.00 until Monday at 10.00.
Theme: Turnover! The penalty card list will change, and it will be as it follows, only for this weekend:
-20 malus: Ambre GraksmxxT Graksmxxt Rb Jackie Cr Mechakolos DJ Korr Cr Emeth Cr General Cr Raven Lyse Teria Cr Vickie Cr Kolos Alec Cr Marco Cr Kiki Cr Guru Cr Copper Cr Herman
- 5 malus: Saki Shann Morphun Dr Norton Cr Mokra Hawk Lehane Pilzken Isatis
- 2 malus: Striker Striker Rb Beeboy Gil Spiaghi Phoebe Coby Martha Nellie Oxen Sabia Milena Lamar Cr
I guess for me the initial question is: why are we penalizing in the first place?
Kalindra Cr may not result in a high place for you, but she can sure mess up your opponent. At the very least she'll cause matches to last longer and be harder to get KO points from. If that's not something we're worried about, then let her stay. She seems no more or less horrid than other cards in T2. If the goal is to not make it horribly impossible to recover from an attack... like in T1, then yeah, I'd argue for a small penalty in T1.
We can easily say Frozn isn't the best in Tourney because it's horrible in R1. But is that a legit reason to not penalize? "The other guy won't be doing well, so we should just let is slide"? Doesn't seem like a legit reason, to me. The real issue is that if Kalindra's banned, then why not La Salerosa, Kenny Cr, Brody, etc? Do we just throw out all +LPD cards over +1 per DMG?
Cards are penalised because they make it easy for the player to win.
Therefore we need to ban the cards that make it too easy to win the DT such as spyke instead of cards that are annoying such as kalindra cr
On the other hand, ambre should be banned so
