I have at least one deck for every faction and a few combo decks as well.
My normal methodology of play is to play a deck until I've suffered three losses (ala Rift Run), then move on to the next one on my list. This way I rotate through all decks and get a broad level of playing experience. As new cards are acquired, I adapt the existing decks or create new ones.
Last night I lost my third Genesis Industries game so it was on to the Overseers. I played 5 Overseers games. Won 2, lost 3.
Received a GG for two I lost.
Received very abusive hate for the two I won.
Every other deck I play, I get at least GG or, at worse, nothing at game end where I am the victor.
I have beaten an Overseers deck at least once with every faction and combo deck I've constructed. I've also lost. When I do, I do not feel the need to send an abusive message.
Admittedly, during a bad evening after the seventh consecutive loss (against any faction), I do get a little grumpy. Even then, I do not consider it appropriate, to question my opponent's parentage, request them to expire with expediency or tell them to perform biological impossibilities on themselves. At my worst, I will click on the little X by my opponent's name so I can't message them (though will begrudgingly GG them back if they GG me).
From my limited experience, I don't consider the Overseers any easier to win with than any other faction. Actually, my Sleepers deck currently has the longest run before 3 losses.
This is a game where we come to unwind after a day of whatever. We're all supposedly playing to enjoy ourselves. Yes, it's nice to win, but, please, please, remember that there's a person playing at the other end who might have actually won the only game they're going to win that evening. If you can't be civil, keep quiet.
Suggestion: (although I refer to the Overseers here, this could be any faction - it's just that the Overseer tend to get people's blood boiling for some reason)
At game end where you lost miserably to Overseers write: Nothing. GG would be a barefaced lie as it clearly wasn't a GG. If they GG you, either ignore it or at least write THX.
At game end where you completely destroyed them with the Overseers. Nothing. As above, a one-sided game regardless of outcome isn't very GG. Getting GG'd when defeated so badly is like having salt rubbed into a wound.
At game end where, after an epic struggle, the game eventually finishes and regardless of your personal result: GG WP (well played - I'm often asked what that means).
Any extra banter is entirely up to you, but please, keep it civil.
