This thread is mostly for people involved in the SOCR8 tournament.
I’d like to solicit thoughts on Hired Help, particularly whether you would like to see an intervention regarding banning or restricting the card Hired Help, or if you would especially NOT like to see such an intervention (you are excited or interested in keeping Hired Help untouched). We are talking about this in a few places, here, the tournament slack channel, and also I’m happy to hear thoughts via direct messages and such.
Here’s the plan for sure:
Hired Help will be untouched for the rest of round 1 and round 2. Let’s talk about it during that time, and if we can reach a good consensus of what to do, we’ll implement that plan for round 3.
Related: when we started this tournament I told people that we wouldn’t be making MWL changes after the tournament started, so I apologize to people who made decisions on ID and big box selection based on that information. As a remedy to this (and also to help out people who have deep regrets about their ID or big box choices, if you want to switch IDs or big boxes between either round 1 and round 2, or between round 2 and round 3, just let me know and we can make that happen. That offer is on the table regardless of what we do with Hired Help.
