how would this hurt a tournament scene when people don't need to have their own versions of the game?
Are the tournament rules written down some where? Wouldn't you have to bring your own copy to play? Isn't that usually how things work or is the store supposed to provide all copies the tournament?
And if the stores are supposed to provide the materials for the games will you be able to bring your kickstarter exclusive characters and cards and be able to use them?
Or are you saying that since you share the components of a single game with your opponent it doesn't matter if we have the exclusives or not?
Seems like it would be better if both players brought their own sets to use though because what if we both wanted to be the Mad King? also I wouldn't want to share my card decks that had kickstarter exclusives in them because of how rare they are I wouldn't be surprised if people tried to steal them during the game.
I think it is best for a healthy tournament scene if every one has equal access to all the different options in a game. Having exclusives will also prevent some from even buying into the game and this will hurt the growth of the game.
