"This is metagaming at its finest, yet it also leads to 100% of your games having terrible gameplay.

And there's the rub. The kind of metagame under discussion is one where global imbalance is assumed to be "good." The assumption is that sitting down to play another player and having a advantage or disadvantage before the game even starts is a great thing. Well, it kind of sucks actually, and violates the concepts of basic fairness. You could define "the game" to be the larger thing that involves "picking a deck/character + playing it" but that's hardly an answer. It's just admitting that the part where you actually play is kind of sucky and unfair."

Fairly old, but it rings true. What do you guys feel about this?

Why do some people think it's so cool to quote Hamlet? I'll never understand that.
