Can we just phase out the Sleepers? They are such a skill less brain dead faction. There is no honor in losing to them. They literally just throw out every card into the combat zone, leave the zombie scavengers in the support zone, and then just use Hehkeem.

Nah, not Phase them out, just a few slight rarity adjustments to the problematic cards (plaguebearer, Zzzzzzzzombie scavenger, overwhelming dead) and maybe considering banning Hehkeem, the Corrupted (from command or altogether).

That'd make them a decent 2nd purity still whilst not letting 3p SoA or 2p SoA running wild all the time. Not sure how Hehkeem out would affect 3p SoA, but I think it'd be quite a big nerf for draft (not like they don't deserve it though).

Bump. Phase Out Sleepers Please!!!
I'm winning too much in Rifts and I'm not even trying. It's so mindless.

No, phasing out not needed. Just take these steps: Ban Hehkeem, the Corrupted -> Overwhelming Dead to UC -> Plaguebearer to UC -> Fixed.

That is being discussed though already.

I am not playing a single game of draft until its changed. ES you are being too nice by changing title from uncultivated draft, scorn is deserved for the devs for ignoring balance advice from vets and ruining the format.

Just another reason to bring back Council in some form, without it changes are slow, incomplete and too often incorrect. I really don't want to throw stones, but why not put to use knowledge of devoted vets?

I am on the verge of the same atm.

People who saw my stream yesterday might understand why... brainless sleepers beat everything.

Well, I was never a big fan of draft.

Draft (or Rifts) should be about creative decks and think hard to have as a result a competitive deck.

None of this is happening atm. I did not play the draft before because of (some) Aletas.

Now we have sleepers. I guess it is not easy but, it shouldn't be that hard to try to balance things.

I know there are lots of things coming... But, if we have a test server, why not change some things at draft, invite some players to go there and make some tests?

Give them after the proper feedback some IP or packs.

It is not that hard. I can say that here in the forum, with a little research, we have already almost every solution for the problems we see at the game or, at least, a good start to deal with them.
