  1. Broken: Cost and Team Building

    I've been TOing Dice Masters at one shop or another since Avengers vs. X-Men came out in April of 2014. I've seen one store close, one group die out, and fought to keep my current group alive and thriving. In a game with missteps and delays, some disappointing sets, and at times a seriously unbalanced meta: it's not an easy task. I've seen players quit over the Jocasta ruling, Bard spam, personal differences, or shiny new games coming out they'd rather play.

    So let's just get this part out of the way: Deadpool is a bit of an underwhelming set in my opinion. I've heard that opinion from others, and it's not really suited well to Rainbow Draft in my opinion. It wasn't great for this format, but this report is about our event, not the Deadpool set.

    So we had five teams register, our shop gave a discounted registration fee to teams that paid in advance, and because of how much product this format requires, ...
