One thing that the playtest team attempts to do when testing a new set is to run the proposed cards through many different scenarios with different deck styles. I am curious about how the community sees the different deck styles and what they mean to everyone, so our Friday Question this week is:
What's your preferred play style?
We generally talk about play styles/deck types in these categories:
- Speed Solver
- Mid-Range Solver
- Interference Deck
I'll start us off with talking about my preferred style.
My preferred style falls into the Mid-Range Solver. For me, this means that I'm primarily focused on solving my missions but I do devote some part of my deck to redundancy/recovery and/or the ability to interact with my opponent if the situation arises (often through being battle capable, but not battle focused). More often than not, I'm going for a 3 missions as I don't like devoting a lot of resources to doing two missions. When I seed my missions I tend to interweave my missions with my opponents to try and cause a Speed Solver some issues.
