Just 2 round ago, Andro 51 opened with only 1 draft spot. You are making some incorrect assumptions about what the “hardcore” players always want.
It’s not about having stones or not, it’s about having a sensible process for a group of players with a variety of preferences. Sometimes you will get what you want, and sometimes you won’t.
You are arguing for us to take away player voice so that you can get specifically what you want despite everybody else who took the time to express their preference. We aren’t going to do that.
People want different things. That is why we have a vote in the first place. I understand why you don’t like full draft, and I also understand why other players do.
In this case, the majority disagrees with you.
I understand that not everybody reads the forum, but for now the alternative is not having a vote at all. Our process isn’t perfect but it is better than players not having a voice at all.
You’re welcome to post a thread in #support:feedback if you want convince others that we should avoid full drafts in the future.
