I hate these prerelease streamer-only theorycraftings. I hate them since the first time they did that. Day 1 will never be fun again
"Don't watch them them yadayada" I don't watch them anyways but my opponents may so I'll be steamrolled by a bunch of tier 1 decks. Screw it.
This would still happen. As long as the cards are released ahead of launch people will build decks and discuss them. If you take away the stream it will be replaced by forums and discussion boards anyway and come day 1, there will be several decks that have been theory crafted and good to go.
What you want is everybody to start from scratch but people who make your argument completely fail to consider the very large amount of players who clearly don't want to spend hours building and tweaking a deck. They might only get half an hour or an hour to play and want to jump into games and enjoy semi competitive matches. Just because you personally enjoy experimenting etc that doesn't make it the 'right' way and given the amount of games that do exactly this, I'd assume you, my friend, are in the minority. So whilst that sucks for you, it's the right thing to do from the developer's and overall consumer perspective.
I haven't really watched to be honest, had a little look at a couple of decks that Regis played but didn't watch the reveal stream etc. I don't enjoy Kripp, I don't like watching him, probably for unfair reasons. He just comes across really slimey and creepy and doesn't seem to know much or care about constructed at all. I don't really understand what type of viewer he appeals to, I get that he has a lot but ive never understood why.
