Yes, i’m sure making 3 separate threads about this is completely necessary and will convince everyone you’re right. I’m honestly on the fence about the whole thing, but have some perspective, us beta testers absolutely do NOT represent everyone who will play DW, and using sales as an argument is absolutely ridiculous, you have absolutely no proof that the addition or removal of this mechanic will affect a significant amount of people who are planning to buy the game. High level play needs far more things to be implemented before it is taking seriously, what is the fixation with this one mechanic as if it will make or break competitive play, as if there aren’t tens of other things the game needs before competitive or ‘high level’ play will be taken seriously?
Like I said, i’m on the fence but if this is how you try and convince people then you’re doing a terrible job and what the devs are going to see is the same old argument that didn’t stop them from removing it before. The thing that gets me is that there seems to be an almost obsession with this mechanic as if it is the be all or end all of high level play, which is completely untrue.
I would like to see someone higher up weigh in on this in some way but honestly the way things are going it would probably only spark another 5 pages of arguments that accomplish absolutely nothing.
