    What are your thoughts on the direction Shadow Era is taking?

    I thought the next set would help the weaker cards from the previous sets be more viable. Instead, Shattered Fates just created more new useless cards.

    what are yours?

    It is one of my greatest hopes that in the future, mankind achieves enlightenment so high we would not need rules, laws, or government to keep the peace and govern ourselves. By our own motivation and volition, we would do what is right and just because it is right and just. This is the central tenet of anarchy. Not chaos and lawlessness, but free will and self-actualization.

    What do you mean by that?

    Created more useless cards.... The thing is, they can't release a new set that blows every past set out of the water. It would just be silly. It's better to have integration. The fact is each set is going to contain cards that aren't very useful. You just have to hope that over time, eventually as more cards are built with different mechanics, some/many/most will find a home within a specific strategy or mechanic.

    My gripe is more about the discarding mechanic. It just makes games a little less fun. Also, Thoughtripper's Cutlass makes me wonder why I would ever both playing as Serena. Why not just play as Lance, have the same card set, Serena's ability in a castable item, and your own super cool ability?
    Yep... Lance it is.

    There is already a thread here called Unusable Cards which discusses cards that people think aren't good. So for the sake of not cluttering the forum with another thread on the same topic, maybe just post to that thread with your list of cards you think are useless.

    Edit: I will say that Thoughtripper's Cutlass is probably one the most poorly designed cards in the set, not because it's useless, in fact it can be very good, but only for any hero other than the one it's named for. Like why name it for Serena when it helps the other two Rogues and all the Hunters more? It needs a major rework in ability to actually be usable by mostly Serena.

    Some cards are meant more for the "Timmy" type of players while others are for the "Johnny" and "Spike" (Look up this Timmy Johnny Spike MtG article.). Some cards just have untapped potential that is right now trapped due to the card pool.

    I think his topic is different enough, he's asking what is disappointing you about the direction/design of the game rather than what cards he finds bad about the new set. Granted, I still say going to the useless card thread and actually explaining why you specifically think X is useless will help lower the amount of cards people think is useless (shameless plug ).

    My biggest issue the lack of participation in the beta server causing too long a wait time...I like the design of many of the cards and think the expansion will be a good thing for the game (even if some modifying is still being done...like giving Garth back poison)

    Shard of Power. Laughable card in CotC and DP. But with Shattered Fates..... well

    Not being able to play beta from mobile is a HUGE reason for this.
