Completely pointless, and still WotC is doing it.
Its actively harmful to have cards in digital only.

The card is horrible dark and a crime to ever leave the printer.
To put this kind of prints in a package and charge money for it, is an insult to the players.
I cant imagine how they looked at this and thought "oh well thats fine", its a total failure.

You can rest assured that all of the signets that you get will be etched! :)"
Such a shame that they accidentally did something right, then went out of their way to undo it.
Why do they make "etched foil" at all ?
Absolutely nobody ever liked them, as they look horrible in paper (extremely dark, instead of bright and shiny like oldschool foils).
Etched foil are so bad, the only reason to have them is that they are so ugly, that someone will GIFT them to you for free.

Such are completely different cards with entirely different use-cases.
You need a damn good reason to play Cleansing Wildfire and its not a card to maindeck, unless you have a specific reason to.
Cards that are way better at the job:
Wasteland (so efficient that you play it anyway, maindeck)
Vindicate (Hits permanents, so it just hits whatever is the problem, no questions asked)
Assassin's Trophy (Also hits permanents)
To play fringe specific cards maindeck is not a recipe thats reasonable at all, but actual useful powerful flexible answers prevent such problems from happening, as players will have some form of answer to whatever problem is relevant, so you are never a completely sitting duck, you have outs.
Stone Rain and friends are specific land destruction that you maindeck if your strategy is to denial mana in general. That by "accident" also destroys lands that are problems, as it destroys any lands.
Pillage is more flexible, and they print Demolish versions quite often, could simply make it 1RR and its somewhat competitive, as the difference of 3 to 4 mana is so massive if the goal is to deny mana (especially with the super hyper efficient 1 and 2 drops we get today).
As of right now, "lands" are the most protective permanent type of them all, anything else has proper maindeck removal, but lands are the holy cow that nobody is allowed to touch, so if a land becomes a problem its a problem that has no good answers (but to be frank, here its not the land thats the problem, but the entire rules interaction of the land having an ability that is supposed to be on a creature, and we have plenty of creature removal).
Jul 14, 2021TheOnlyOne652089 posted a message on The Book of Exalted Deeds emergency ban for standard 2022They run into the same problem every set.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
It needs to be at least 1 non-basic land destruction in every standard, at all times.
A bunch more non-basic land destruction if possible, but the corner stone to not be dead in the pool is to have an answer that is viable for all decks.
Field of Dead was a problem and every land that turns into a issue has to have a answer, if not, bad things happen.
The book should say the ability only works while its a creature, the fact it doesnt produces the same combo with Mutavault, even better as its cheaper.
The fact its not a persistent problem in older formats is the simple existence of land-destruction, proper counterspells and removal.
Jul 14, 2021Posted in: The Rumor Mill
You absolutely can take any card and just ask what this particular card would be on the Storm-Scale.
Would it be reasonable to see that card in a standard legal set ?
For Hullbreacher its no, so the card is quite high on that scale, but there are a bunch of standard legal cards that in retrospective might be on that list as they proven to be problems in standard (as basically any card once was, when all sets were standard legal at some point).
Hullbreacher doesnt have a named mechanic, but its not hard to imagine the entire problem of "Replace draw with something else" as a mechanic that they have done on several cards and they all lead tot he same problems with Wheel effects stripping the hand away with the discard part and drawing no cards to replace them.
Simply call it "Replace draw mechanic", so you can give that a storm-scale rating
The irony being that a lot of "10" are actually reprinted in ModernHorizon and friends, as the mechanics associated to these are fairly often high caliber problem mechanics that produce some degenerate decks, which happen to be relevant in formats that already have them.
Its much more specific about standard to not reprint these mechanics (or at least make it unlikely, but unlikely just means, whenever Maro feels like it, its ignored), so with sets that ignore Standard, the storm-scale is more of an indicator what they more likely to do in such non-standard sets, as for standard legal sets they will avoid it.
Overall, the mechanics with a 10 have proven to be some kind of problem, and printing cards with that mechanic has quite a danger attached to it to repeat the problem.
In Modern Horizon especially they print cards that are more or less intentionally overpowered or support one of the mechanics that are a 10 on the storm-scale, which would otherwise not get new cards from standard legal sets.
For Commander decks the storm scale pretty much doesnt count at all, as they build some crappy preconstructed piles that work more or less and put whatever card in there.
The "accidents" happen to become competitive cards in Vintage formats , which includes Commander.
They by design break their own storm-scale, which is a bit ironic.
Jul 13, 2021Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from HighHolder »Lol at the guy proposing unban of primetime. Clearly you never played back it was legal...
And there are even more broken lands now like stupid zombie land.
In a competitive setting Prime is totally meaningless.
On Casual tables, if you just tutor lands, the biggest problem is that you tutor for the same lands every time, and the game becomes repetitive.
It does basically what Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is doing as a commander (the entire attacking for more lands is icing on the cake, with haste and all that).
So , there are a lot of cards that are not particularly powerful if your group has competitive decks, the worst crime against a casual table is to make boring games that play out the same every time (reason enough tutors produce so bad games, if they always go for the same stuff, if they tutor for specific answers, its less of a problem).
Jul 13, 2021The effect is fine if the card would be sorcery speed and more impacted by removal, in addition to being overall more expensive.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Notion Thief at 2UB and as a 3/1 is specific enough that not all decks can run it with Wheel cards (as the color combinations restrict it).
Hullbreacher without flash and adding white and red cost (as white and red are the "treasure" colors). Could also just be red as a hate card.
At 2WR, this could have worked way more fair, simply because its more restrictive on decks by its colors and easier to handle as you cant just flash it in before your turn or in response to an opponent wheeling (which is one of the most frustrating plays that can happen and results in people not playing a wheel out of fear into open mana, and blue by all colors is the one that will have open mana the most, so its all awful problems combined).
There is no doubt they pushing the power creep pretty dreadful hard with specific cards.
Opposition Agent is on the same problem train, if it matters the entire game revolves around getting rid of these creatures, as they completely dead-lock a game for the opponents.
Being black is at least somewhat of a disadvantage, as blue is such a more profound overpowered color to begin with.
Jul 12, 2021To be frank, everything that Hullbreacher does, so does Notion Thief.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Hullbreacher is simply better as winning the same turn with a storm like deck and putting it in many more (even mono blue) decks is a thing.
In the end, truly casual tables can just ignore the banned list anyway, as long as the deck is janky enough nobody cares.
They should simply stop designing cards that "stop" the card draw, its every time the same problem with Wheel of Fortune effects (could just ban all of them, at least the efficient ones).
And two more diversity hires , amazin

And if you can tap/untap it as an artifact in some way, it can provide you a lot of tickets into a dungeon.
Could be great with Clock of Omens and friends.
Jul 8, 2021Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Rosy Dumplings »
In case you missed the news, it has been repeatedly stated that you are NOT supposed to use spindowns for dice rolls as all of the high rolls are right next to each other and anyone half decent at rolling dice would be able to ensure a 10+ roll 90+ percent of the time.
Another problem with the dice rolling gimmick.
They gave out millions of Spindown D20 to players for years, and now you are not allowed to use them to this gimmick ?
Its such a awful designed mechanic that oozes out of every pore.
Jul 8, 2021Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from ilovesaprolings »
Or maybe they thought that paying 7 mana to have 50% of gettin 10+ treasures was too much?
Oh wait, the % is even higher than that...
You speak of game design and then think this card would be fine with a d20? Looks like you are just afraid of d12s for whatever reason and not being reasonable at all.
The average roll of a d12 is 6,5. That means on average this spell will pay for itself. That's why they chose a d12. Not just for a "gimmick".
At this point you are just trying for the sake of it.
The card shouldnt exist period.
If it requires a awful D12 gimmick to work, simply dont do it, nobody loses, the game is cleaner, peace.
Jul 8, 2021Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Evil Never Dies »So yes, to play properly this game you actually need a smartphone and that's no big deal because as I said, everybody have a smartphone and an internet connection. Having an app for dice rolls isn't worse or more difficult than doing anything I listed above..
Ah the irony :
(MTG Tournament Rules
2.12 Electronic Devices
At Competitive and Professional Rules Enforcement Level during drafting, deck construction, and playing of matches, players may not use electronic devices capable of taking and storing notes, communicating with other people, or accessing the internet ( except for taking brief personal calls with the opponent's permission). At Regular Rules Enforcement Level, electronic devices are permitted, but players may not use them to access information that contains substantial strategic advice or information about an opponent's deck. Device use during a match other than brief personal calls must be visible to all players. Players wishing to view information privately on electronic devices during matches must request permission from a judge. The Head Judge or Tournament Organizer of a tournament may further restrict or forbid the use of electronic devices during matches.
The Head Judge or Tournament Organizer of a tournament may further restrict or forbid the use of electronic devices during matches.
The entire point of playing in paper is to not have a smartphone at the table, be "social" instead of anti-social.
And during proper matches someone tapping around on their phones, is distracting in itself.
And people use Apps that quite literally cheat (yea, digital coinflips have plenty of messed up Apps that allow to tab in a spot on the display to guarantee an outcome, its messed up and its a level of cheating nobody needs or introduce to the game).
The game CAN and SHOULD be designed that all that is not needed.
Its a card game, all you SHOULD need is the cards, which SHOULD explain themselves without the need to have oracle text for substantial rules to them (like all the damn creature type changes) , minor little details nobody would know or look up anyway, but substantial changes are a mess.
its not like there isnt a solution for all problems, we are not idiots (most of us at least) , so we can figure out solutions, we are smart after all.
The problem is that the game designs cards that require these solutions for problems that shouldnt exist in the first place.
The entire argument is, to design a card that requires a D12 is awful and should not be done in Magic, its strictly crappy card design ... and theres plenty of awful magic cards designed, which doesnt excuse to make more awful designs that introduce more and even more awful problems to a game that has enough of them already.
if you ever tried to play a game where every card asks you to roll a dice, put counters on them, flip a coin and choose random targets ... the games anything but fun, its not a card game anymore, at that moment you just stop playing with that cards or person, which is entirely avoidable if that issue wouldnt be forced into the game by said awful card designs (theres simply no need to ever have "random" anything in Magic, flipping coins, rolling dice, its all equally awful and unnecessary , and frankly, they designed these cards at least to be as non-competitive as possible, so nobody that wants to be competitive has to bother with them ... but thats far from a good solution, its a terrible approach to hide these mistakes).

Nov 30, 2017TheOnlyOne652089 posted a message on If You Can't Take Criticism of Jeremy Hambly, You're Part of the ProblemThe deal with being in public and somewhat called "harassment" (and i clearly distinquish between a from a court defined harassment and a person just feeling they are harassed) , is that its really different pieces.Posted in: Articles
As a private person you have no impact on public that even remotely justifies that anyone attacks you directly.
However, as a public person, like a politician or as we have here, a cosplayer that actively presents their body in public on public events to players, its in your right to criticizes exactly that, which is the body, its presented in a sexualized manner, so commenting in that way is not even inappropriate (might not be your personal taste, but thats a different deal).
If a private person gets mails from random persons theres zero reason or justification, so thats an entirely different matter compared to someone that publicly pushes themselves into public opinion.
Its a really important part of projecting this matter to the context its presented in.
If i see a women feeding a baby and i tell her "You are a 6/10, i wouldnt even rape you" , it would be an unbelieavable inappropriate thing to say , but to someone that in public makes money by presenting their body ? If i tell that to a stripper ? Inapprioriate for sure, but still an entirely different deal, as context matters, the environment matters and if you do not want to expose to that, you are not forced, you can simply not do that job.
If you go to the extreme and outlaw any potenially rude comment, you restrict language by a great deal, so much that people cannot express anything without fear somebody will feel hurt or insulted, and if that justifies that your social media gets permanently flagged and you suffer for it, its a way more extreme response than the "rude comment" started out as.
The adult option would be to point the rude comments out and keep it on a apprioriate level of response, you can talk stuff out and discuss it to proof a point without going to war directly , and still keep in mind, that no person is outright evil, for such things.
And yes, the real sick people are the ones that perform the threats, thats just downright cruelty and has no other reason than pleasing a sadistic pleasure, and that is absolutely nothing a society has to, or should accept, but its a completely different animal to a critic from an public figure.
I am on the side to promote that individuals are responsible for what they are doing.
Jeremy didnt incite harassment, he did poorly phrased comments sure, but thats hardly crazy evil, its just rude and if you talk to him about that, yes ofcourse he knows himself its rude, and thats about it, you can stand above it and realize that something thats already enough, realize you gone a bit to far and the moment you are told so, you can better yourself, problem solved ; the sick people that continue to threaten , thats what remains, but thats adults, responsible for their actions, and any adult that isnt insane should have enough intelligence to not even do that to begin with.
Racist comments are a special kind of deal, just as gay-topics etc. etc.
Its highly controversial to many people and especially your work place is a context with special meaning here.
If i make a racial comment in private, thats it, nobody cares. If someone is insulted they can sue me, i get appropriate punishment, and/or we settle the topic before it escalates, thats the potential for discussion and understanding that is much more valuable than taking every little comment and blow it up like its a death threat right away ; its clearly not.
In your context part you clearly see context matters so much.
Context is key for this here.
All the screenshots are mostly out of context and look entirely different if you get the big picture.
Yes people are offended a lot, but its undeniably a thing you have to be able to deal with if you have any kind of public job, or open yourself up to that (and if you cannot deal with it, its simply the wrong job for you, as theirs issues with lots of jobs and you cannot just blame others for that, self-responsility is a thing, its not that others are always to blame for anything you do and anything you do will have an effect on others, if your job is in public, thats a given).
I think america in special a lot of people are highly influenced by what some special individuals say , so they build up some form of responsibility for what they say, simply because of that.
And i think, it again depends on context and what group you talk to.
In the case here the group of people is the magic community, people that watch Jeremys Channel, thats already a very small subsection again and people that enjoy trollish comments, so they are already open to that and have their own problems why they cannot control what they are doing (as no sane person would write a death threat email to anybody, but lots of people do, especially in heated discusions and extreme topics).
But here Jeremy cannot be at fault for what individuals end up doing, the targeted audience are adults, and should totally be able to control themselves.
Your last part.
I also think he could be much less rude in his comments and from his latest comments he acknowledges this, as often you have to be told you are going over the edge, and if its good to think about it (but again, its about critic and staying on a non-extreme course, you want discussion and not open war).
Lots of stuff i can relate to and the topic is simply overblown by extreme margins.
In the end, people said some mean things and others reacted to them ; thats actually all that happened, thats rude at best, but its not downright evil.
This topic would much easier and smoother be solved in a much smaller circle, or in private between these two.
Pulling it to public just makes things worse, by a lot and it doesnt serve anybody, be they right or wrong, in the end, this open warfare just damages the community and people will bunker themselves into even more extreme sides and become even more unable to discuss anything without directly insulting each other.
But one thing is guaranteed, this will be a hot topic for the rest of the week and probably the next one, and at some point, nobody will care anymore and just play Magic again.
Nov 30, 2017TheOnlyOne652089 posted a message on If You Can't Take Criticism of Jeremy Hambly, You're Part of the ProblemThe fact that a comment makes someone feel harassed doesnt mean it is harassment.Posted in: Articles
Just because someone feels insulted, its not automatic evil in nature.
Most important, he never told to her directly, you literally have to seek out his channel to see the comments, so you actively have to search yourself to see negative comments about yourself.
The indisputable issue are the sick minded individuals that go over the top and do exactly that, email directly, twitter to her directly etc. They do the harassment, they are 100% guilty for it, and they qualify for it, as they indeed take a sadistic pleasure in doing that, its among the most harmful type of troll.
Then theres a difference between private people and people in public.
As a private person nobody has any public interest in what i do and so comments about my person would be out of context.
The moment what you are doing is part of a community, like cosplay at a grand prix and doing pictures of that etc. You present yourself in public and so comments about exactly that are clearly presented.
That alone is no harassment and its just as important to clearly draw a line between what people truly say and what is casually said, simply put, if you are talking to a group of people for hours, chances are you will say something stupid and someone will feel insulted ; so it has to be viewed in context and not just "oh god, look what he said" , and finger point exactly that and ignore anything else.
And especially for Jeremys channel, its clearly a form of topics and talking that you might easily find offending, others do not, some think hes right about a bunch of stuff, and i believe you can easily see he has a bunch of points.
All the so called harassment can be put down to context that gives it a background, so that is what makes the topic a lot more slippery than just believing its all crystal clear.
The idea of thinking its downright crystal clear and theres only black/white in it, is already short sighted, as you have to see more of the picture to get a real glimpse of the actual truth.
Nov 30, 2017TheOnlyOne652089 posted a message on If You Can't Take Criticism of Jeremy Hambly, You're Part of the ProblemYea, if people truly think theres just 1 problem at hand, and that others, but ofcourse never themselves are a part of it, thats just ridiculous, as it is the kind of finger pointing that just wants to make someone else responsible for what you think is bad.Posted in: Articles
If someone truly feels harassed, seek the police, file a claim, prevent the harassment, thats what you can do as an adult, theres a little bit of responsibility for your own too.
Its not your job to defend your wife, if you truly want fairness, she can do that on her own and she should be absolutely able and willing to do so (and if she isnt, that is a problem you have to start working on).
Its always a big question mark, if you have to drag your personal issues into public.
That just makes everything worse, much worse, as you are suddenly exposed to people that choose sides and over dramatic defend it, no matter if it effects them at all.
The adult way to solve the issue would simply be if she started out to simply ask to stop exactly what she thinks is bothering her. Any responsible adult will accept that and change behavior if its reasonable, and if they dont, you file a claim against them, so they get judged by a neutral court (or you are proven wrong on your feeling of being harassed, thats also an option and as an adult your have to live with it).
Nov 30, 2017Theres critic and just phrasing opinions and as a form of entertainer and content provider he has a form of talking that a lot of people find offensive, but there is plenty of comedians i find offensive, but that doesnt make them in any way problematic.Posted in: Articles
Comments can easily be in bad taste and thats undeniable the case for Jeremy, but the real core of the issue to discuss is the small amount of truly idiotic people that take it to a true harassment and violent form of threats ; and the question to discuss would be if you as a content provider are truly responsible for what some sick individuals do , given they are adults, these people are the actual problem, and thats not Jeremy.
The same kind of sick individuals exist on the other spectrum too, some of them Social Justice Warriors that somehow feel Jeremy has to be "utterly destroyed" and death threats against him are "totally fine".
Seriously, its the same kind of sick individuals and its the CORE of a true problem which puts every little issue into full on overdrive roadkill.
It serves nobody and its a form of discussion that is very prevalent in the internet.
Its a culture of trolls and social justice warriors that simply cannot keep their actions behind a healthy line that keeps a minimum of civilized discourse alive.
If people get famous they undeniable have to have a tougher hide. The more people you know and the more people respond to you, the more bad comments you will accumulate.
Thats natural, and people will either like what you do or they will not.
Some of the sick people will downright hate you for whatever you do and this leads to the exact problem of people that think they have to act themselves , right now and fight what they think is the evil, everyone thinks they are in the right to do so and so nobody is able to self-reflect and see they are going over the top.
If matters settle down you could easily see Jeremy seeing himself that a bunch of stuff crosses the line , but bad taste comments and actual harassment should be dealt with in court and absolutely not in public for people to just judge and start their little lynch mobs in every corner burning whatever victim they just found.
So there is more than just one problem.
A lot of problems and everyone is part of some problem, if they see it, know it, or still deny it.
Nov 30, 2017Theres plenty of "good" men that started wars and killed people in the name of what they thought to be somehow the right thing.Posted in: Articles
The reality is, there are no "evil" and no "good" men, just opinions and people that push these ideology with violence over the other, who ever wins will be in the right, the other side clearly must have been wrong.
Its not the job of people to start a lynch mob and "destroy" other human beings and its downright pedantic to think that is in any way what "good men" should do.
Any problem has to be discussed and solved on the appropriate level.
Pushing topics in public only serves the trolls and media hype , people calling out for a single entity to be blamed for everything they think is bad.
The reality is, theres not a single bad person and everyone is usually to some degree responsible for what they do or do not do.
People really like to give small problems horrific names so they sound like much bigger problems, that leads only to despair and misery, it has no positive benefit for anybody, just pampers the ideology of people that really think they are the only legit form of judgment call, self-administered justice isnt the way to go and if you ever get in the situation to think someone is the personified evil, you are guaranteed wrong and simply ignore the other standpoint (so you become evil yourself, just to pretend to defend against evil, thats in no way a solution and only leads to a conflict in which everyone can blame anyone to be in the right and suddenly there are no good men left anymore).
Nov 30, 2017A very big issue is that different topics are brought together, while they simply do not fit.Posted in: Articles
Nazi and troll posters are two very different things and should never be put together, just to fuel a cause, thats selling your own arguments cheap and makes them one-dimensional black/white thinking again, which is good for nobody.
Also, there will be critic and negative critic as well, that has to be acceptable.
Nobody is forced to be overly positive about anything.
If you truly dislike something you can say so, and its value to the discussion that this is expressed and not just ignored, or even outlawed as something terrible wrong.
At the same time its very valid to criticize something and not come up with a solution on your own right away. I can critic a cook and not be able to make it better, thats totally fine and it must be legit to do so. The point of critic is that you should never need to justify for it, the receiver can take the critic and see it as an issue, or they dont, thats their cup of tea and its what an adult has to learn to deal with.
But here again, this changes a lot if someone is in private or its brought up in public and presented to a mob of people.
If you just honestly dislike cosplay and say so, thats fair, nobody forces you to like anything.
The "locker-room-talk" is a topic entirely for its own. Its something that is widely accepted and always was. Women to the same about men, they even do it among each other, it might just be more subtle than the direct approach of actually saying it out loud, even if its just in the "locker-room" (or in this case a youtube channel, or a bunch of twitter posts).
Its fine on its own.
What really pushes the topic to become a real issue is how stuff completely gets lost and out of control incited to be way bigger than what it really is (and yes, thats a terrible huge deal with the amount of media and the very real interest of media to promote topics into "highlights" and further push the mob to generate more horrific events to report about, its almost a self proclaiming prophecy, so its very difficult to truly say what amount of discussion is healthy and what is just talking it to bits and pieces, as many if not all topics will be seemingly super hot for the moment and meaningless the next week, as there is no real issue beside the illusion of talk at all).
How would an adult deal with bad talk about them in private ?
You confront the person and actually tell them to stop as its not ok for you.
Solves the issue, unless the person is actively not recognizing your problem.
In public it changes a lot.
Theres either somewhat anonymous people that jump on a topic train and pick sides, which very often leads to extreme reactions, way over the top (any threats via mail or any form of actual harm is absolutely no-go, no matter what the topic is, theres never a reason to choose violence to solve anything.
So if you talk in public, it will have an effect on people and it will polarize the people more and more. Thankfully lots of people can distinguish between a topic that truly effects them and just a rat catcher lynch mob , but some cant, and the poster shouldnt be responsible for these individuals, as almost anything could be seen as an incentive for violence, if the individual has some sick mind, theres an entirely different problem of its own (and yes, you have to ask yourselves why so many "troll" people exist and no matter the topic, they are harmful and actively ignore any productive discussion).
For the topic at hand, the first problem that ignited this into a public *****-fest was that it was brought to public at all.
Solving these kinds of issues should have been a thing between Jeremy and Sprinkle , in private or by her actively telling what bothers her, its just fair to do so, as it solves most issues and avoids outside people to intervene.
If that doesnt work out and somebody is not taking your arguments, you can take it to the police and to court to actively stop what bothers you with something like a protective injunction suit, which again should solve the issue at hand, instead of putting it up for debate to a lynch mob that just wants blood, no matter from who.
Its a very clear picture if a topic is just instantly brought to public, avoiding any legal options (or doing so later, in hopes the public opinion boosts your side).
See, if a topic is discussed in public, it will never be fair.
People pick side right away and defend it for whatever the cost, even if it doesnt effect them personally at all ; which brings the Social Justice Warrior term to fruits.
Yes thats a problem just as trolls.
Its good to have empathy, but its bad to jam ideals and ideology into a topic and mix topics entirely, just to proof a point that has nothing to do with the topic at hand.
Believe it or not, neither Jeremy nor Sprinkle are somehow "evil incarnate" , they arent and they arent "toxic" to the community.
The kind of topic and how much its media-hyped and exaggerated , thats an entire issue of its own and overshadows the problem they personally had to solve between each other and makes it like a community issue , which it isnt, the community is fine, theres very rare cases and problems to deal with and they shouldnt be ignored, but also not exaggerated into spheres they arent fit for.
And this is, about a game, a hobby, people enjoy playing the game and enjoy being part of a community, if this is taken to a level of social criticism it doesnt serve a purpose for the game it just harms the experience for everyone, as it puts a stigma to the game, that it neither deserves or justifies at all.
