Must have missed those examples then, can you point them out again?I find the balrog to not be over powered and I give you examples from the game
And sure, the Balrog tourney results of past 10 years are clearly anecdotal, way more so than your personal experience in playing against Balrog decks.
Or perhaps we should do a survey to check out which alignment people think is strongest? So what do you think the answer would be? Again, the 2 mind rule is not my idea...
I don't claim that, I'd say it comes first in almost every category (except playing big MP cards and winning by dunk, but that's the same for all minions). But since you claimed you refuted that for each category, by stating this or that alignment is better for a category, I thought let's make the discussion easier for you and assume Balrog comes second (otherwise you'd have mentioned that more alignments would be better than Balrog per category, which you didn't). Seems basic stuff to me....How do you claim if Balrog comes 2nd in every category it comes in overall at number 1?
Why would that be turning it around? You assume the position that you are correct and that if you are not satisfied with our line of reasoning, we have obviously failed. That's all very nice, but then I'd advise you to buy a stepladder, makes it easier to get of the high horse.You want to turn this around on me?
It is a valid way of discussing something that if we cannot agree on one point, we might agree on another. If you show me 2 mind rule makes Balrog below par, I'd be sympathetic to that of course.
Name me another one of such rules, I'd be happy to hear it .My problem is you guys are creating new rules with no justification
If there a) were any precedence of unjustified CoE rules changes, or b) was evidence many people are against it, then your position would be a lot stronger.
For the moment I cannot conclude otherwise than that you are generally opposed to any changes being made, and you don't have any confidence in our (or anybody's?) abilities to judge the needs of the game.
Just remember that ICE in the first 4 years of the game made an endless list of corrections and errata, and that any (new) player also has to learn those. They only stopped with this list because they went bankrupt...guess which cardset was the last one, and never received any errata?...
