So it’s a slow day at work and I’m reading some heavily trolled thread on bgg about runner/corp imbalance to pass the time. A question I’ve been thinking about for a while is whether or not the runner/corp imbalance is even important.
I understand arguing for a 50/50 split between sides makes sense if that’s how we assumed the world should work. However, if we simply accepted the idea that you will win less with corp than runner, it’s fine – typically you switch sides in a match, and you’ll both have the opportunity to run.
What do you guys think? Just playing devil’s advocate here, I’ll withhold my opinion for now
One thing I would say is that, if you take it to an extreme (let’s say it were 95% runner), game-winning combos become more important for the corp. Taking those free wins when the stars align means much more if you’re not capable of agenda wins. Still, we’re not quite there… yet. Haha.
