The changes that have been made are:
Lamar Cr and Striker without -1 malus
The all stars are not played that much in TQ, and the 5 players asked me to give a penalty to Robb Cr. This is why I would like to remove the maluses to both striker and lamar cr, to compensate.
Ymirah added to the -25 list
To be on par with the other 'big 5' cards, she deserves it.
Nameko added to the -1 list
The hive are the most played clan in tq t2 at the moment. We decided to pick Nameko, since he can twoshot very easily and can stop a lot of high level cards too easily.
We want to make la junta a little less powerful, since they rule mostly in type 1 I prefer to give a penalty to a level 2 card of them. We picked thormund.
hugo and morphun -1, Eyrik, John Doom and Eklore out
Right now we have already some leaders at -1 and -3 that are never used, and free leaders that no one uses. Apart from ambre (too random), and bridget/vholt (against the TQ tactic, they slow down the matches too much) I think we can be less restrictive on them. They take tons of space in a deck and give few points to you and a lot to the opponents, since they usually lose the rounds. I don't think they will be problematic at all.
marco cr no malus
The rescue clan is not played at all. I want to try to restore one of their -1 cards: marco cr. Yes, he is very good, but I don't think it will be too broken in the current DT meta.
lehane -3, coby -3, john and copper cr no malus
The sentinel are played a little too much in both t1 and t2. We want to try a couple of swaps: lehane and coby with -3 maluses, copper cr and john with no penalties. This will make sentinel decks less stable and more vulnerable to SoA.
redra no malus, beck - nena and caelus cr -1
We consider beck-nena and caelus cr worthy of -1 being both strong splash cards, like spyke and phoebe. Redra can go out of the list.
I will probably see if this makes my Tourney videos more interesting.
The thing with the previous set is that it prevented me from using many leaders. I am looking forward to using Eyrik and Eklore and maybe John Doom to some extent as my videos did show some limited deck choices and the fact my team did not show many leaders.
*In fact, the only leaders I could use before were Solomon or Melody.
I mean while I use Flanagan and Gibson together as a countermeasure against sudden Raptors, it is nice to see Ymriah getting the penalty. Typically La Junta also poses a threat especially Thormund with 11 Power. Redra is already banned in ELO for being a "splash card" but to see Redra with no penalty here is worth it.
By removing the prize for the stars difference, you say that a leader card, if we can get a KO (win or lose) before using it, will cost us nothing, because its being 5* will have no effect in the score if it is in the deck, but not played. On the other hand, it will have a serious effect on the match.
And then you remove penalty from some good leaders? This is too much.
