it's impossible for teams to not face in R2 at least one team they faced in R1.

Does this mean that R2 will not be adjusted manually so that each team faces the 3 teams that were not faced in R1, as what that rule had been intended for?

I'll be doctoring the matchups in R2 to that effect

This year from R3 there is straight 24 discards from deck, and not 15 from deck + 9 from vault.
I understand that we don't like discard fodders now, at the same time I feel that problem has been
already solved by other measures. Most of the time 15 discards from a deck will already kill that deck,
but in other cases you can save a few cards by having to discard that extra 9 cards from the vault.

Any opinions on this?

First, we've already come up with an EC to mitigate the R3 discards. Second, transmutation is much cheaper than in the past

I think the only change happened, that you don't have to discard from other decks if you have less than 24 non-ppm cards in a deck.


First, we've already come up with an EC to mitigate the R3 discards. Second, transmutation is much cheaper than in the past

I admit I don't get it. R1 or R2 EC mitigated that? And I agree, transmutation is cheaper, alchemist role is more popular than earlier I think.
Still my opinion is that since a team loses 24 cards by every loss, giving some extra comfort space is generally is a nice thing to do.
