Of course I have to try out my own idea!

I like this design. I’m in for sure!

By the way - I didn’t think to address this in the original formulation of the idea, but in the case of a tie, obviously “winner picks first” doesn’t work if both players get a win. So in that case, presumably you just replay the same MU?

Yeah, makes sense to me. Updated.

Nice design, I’m in !

rule clarification request: it means that only first pick is blind, then winner re-picks, loser sees the pick and can cp accordingly?

That’s exactly right.

Yup, as long as neither player repeats a character

Once a character is chosen, neither player can pick that character? In other words, is the character pool shared, or individual?

Individual

Emphasis added. It seems pretty clear to me that it’s intended to be individual.

@Castanietzsche 4 - 2 @Ivan
:lum: :psfist: :pschip: :argagarg: I was lucky on combat reveal and did tons of damages with extra juice but uncertain issue until last turn
:onimaru: :psfist: :pschip: :onimaru: Maybe I know a bit more this matchup. I used 4,5 and 6 to pump-up and mainly played with 10 and face cards. I trashed two Ivan’s blocks, he then blocked with 2, I supposed he would do again on next turn so I crashed it with 3. Very strategic MU !
:quince::psfist: :pschip::rook: I drew crazy amount of face cards so all my combat win were highly effective.I lied on every single spin to keep K in hand but it was card-costly.
:zane: :pschip::psfist::jaina: Ivan’s Jaina is great, I expected her one time or another. I drew very few face cards on the early game and no ace too.
:gwen: :pschip::psfist::valerie: K 1.2 lost so many times against A 1.0, totally wrecked too. I still have to learn Gwen, she’s not the stupid brawler I used to think.
:setsuki::psfist: :pschip::bbb: setsuki is crazy on this MU, I can skip blocking and attacking over 2.4 at every single turn !
thanks for the games mate, very fun ones ! :smiley:

vengefulpickle 1 - 4 @PumpedAaron

:bbb::pschip::psfist::setsuki: - @PumpedAaron misses lethal by a single pixel, but avoids my AA at the final 1-21 50-50
:jaina::pschip::psfist::troq: - I get bonked. I do not really have a jaina.
:setsuki::pschip::psfist::degrey: - @PumpedAaron misses lethal by a single point again, but I can’t make the magic setsuki comeback stick.
:zane::psfist::pschip::grave: - Crazy draws let me dodge into a turn 5ish MA, and then some solid nans take it the rest of the way
:vendetta::pschip::psfist::gloria: - @PumpedAaron reads me hard, and nicely maths down to the perfect Gloria inevitability play.

GGs!
