Currently, when you purchase a theme deck, you must beat 12 trainers to receive the free (trade locked) booster pack.

 

This is boring, because the trainer AI is pretty dumb.  Instead, let versus wins count toward this 12 win total.  Two benefits:

 

1. Players can unlock these boosters without mindlessly grinding games against AI trainers.

 

2. Creates more deck diversity in theme versus matches, which makes the theme/versus format more interesting for everyone.

 

Players who are intimidated by versus play can still receive the boosters by beating 12 trainers.

Actually, this sounds pretty good. Playing against the AI is super tedious anyways, and new players would learn a lot more about the game by playing against other humans than against the not so intelligent AI. Decks that are really bad could still be completed in AI games (thinking about HGSS Theme Decks level of bad), while the decent and good ones could be completed can be completed in a more fun way.

Hey- Royal Guard is P.D.G.  :angry: 

 

XD I agree, this sounds like a good idea.  There is a reason that my completionist self hasn't done twelve matches with nigh on any deck I've gotten in years, and being able to use them in VS would probably eliminate it.

 

I doubt it would increase diversity much, as that's almost entirely determined by the quality of individual decks, and popular weaknesses.  But anything that means I don't have to play the AI except when I want to is good in my book.

The truth waits for no one.  That which you refuse to see, TPCi, slips past you.  The chat function was never your problem, yet through your blindness, you have made it one.
