  3. Is there a competitive metagame?

I was around when the game was new and it seemed like it was heading in that direction... is there a competitive "scene" for this game, with plenty of strategy/tier/whatever discussion and stuff now? Scanning the first couple of pages of topics I can't really tell for sure.

There is but if you new to the game and such itll be a while before you can get into competitive play since to be competive you need to understand the power of a weapon and how to fuse.

but yes there is

i like to think there is, but i don't see any evidence of it.

clans ban (way too many) weapons/powers w/ no solid proof that they destroy game balance;
no active tournament scene due to difficulty in coordinating fights;
no agreed-tier list;
no real discussion (or maybe it's because i am not in chatzy at all?)

just my opinion though.

I think the only thing everybody has unanymously agreed on so far is that Burst Blades can't do anything that other weapons can't do better.

I wonder how many of these people have used a burst blade for more than a few rounds. People don't give it enough credit. I would know. I use one all the time.

No there isn't, and the community fundamentally tried to kill any chance for it by focusing all their time in deciding what needs to be banned before they'll feel safe enough to do real tournaments.

In addition to that, the only realistic tournaments which can be done are ones for the unbalanced/unfun areas of the game.
