As well all know the current era is coming to an end quite soon and I thinks along with a lot of others are hoping for a change from the full art/ex era to something different. Any change to the cards obviously affects how the actual game is played completely and so anything that is introduced must be balanced.
Is was basically just wondering what people would like to see change so I thought I might as well make a thread on it. Personally I think that they should take ex cards out for a little bit and take the tcg down a bit hp and damage wise, possibly just have break cards with another type of rare card in the SR/UR spots, I like the idea of evolution being viable in the tcg as it is a core part of the games and the TV series. This would enable longevity of the tcg as it would mean it could creep back up to where it is. What are yours guys thoughts?
EX gone. Impact and influence on the meta is boring and stale. Ever since we got Mewtwo EX in NXD the entire meta has been based around them. They are absolutely trash to look at as well. Megas need to be totally changed in card design.
The concept of a Full Art can stay but have them taken away from the EX cards, if they continued them but only as Trainers and Special cards (2 Golden Reshiram/Zekrom and the Silver Dialga).
Holos desperately need to be freshened up somehow, all through the BW/XY era they have been almost meaningless trash pulls. I have even thrown some of them away because they are just so bad.
Nothing will probably change and Megas will continue to be a blight on every single set that is released and we will have the same uncreative and unimaginative ways to distribute cards. (EX Box after EX Box, after EX Box).
-eliminate EX/Mega cards
-stage 1/2 focused era and less hp
-worse pull ratios for UR cards, give us good reason to open lots of boxes while hoping to hit jackpot eventually
-bigger variation of reverse holo styles, those have been really dull since gen 4
Some things that come in my mind for now. TCG needs hard reset badly from collector pov.
No they would know it was way too important to do that with. They would stick it in their back pocket for safe keeping while playing through the whole tournament in the un-air conditioned game room getting swamp-butt then forget about it and mom would send it through the wash.
But seriously the amount of collections I have bought from craigslist/eBay for ~$10-$100 that consisted of ultra rare cards totaling hundreds to thousands in value originally when they were pack pulled is sickening. I have a pile that I keep of ultra rares that are creased, water damaged, ripped, bent etc. and I just collect them until I get about 50 and sell them on eBay as heavily played poor cards. Very sad times to reflect upon all those wounded soldiers.
