I state > Considering there’s very little strategy involved interacting with flat stat boost (most medals), free cleanse (cedric), or 20% starting mana (anu), it should just be removed.
You state > More medals have been hinted to be added
I reply > More medals come more (rng) problems
and somehow that wraps around to you replying > Cedric is RNG.
There’s no strategy with people having more stats.
Skull teams would have won without extra attack bonuses. Extra HP/Armor is stuff we already had when 20% kingdom weeks occur. They don’t amount to much. Most of the best teams don’t even NEED Magic to win.
But even if we pretend those stats actually matter, the player can’t build/counterbuild to “extra stats.” There’s no anti-medals to turn off enemy medal stat gains.
Cedric is a whole other matter of silly with minimal direct interaction and more coin flip prayers. How do I counterbuild Cedric medals? only stuns. or just not rely on status effects. yay?..
