It's hard to get people back into the game when the game is currently bad. I'm still kinda playing it and I still have friends that get cases and play. But even all those players agree that the game is bad right now. I'm hoping the new starters will bring some life back into it. Right now none of the themes are fun, we're being force fed deck types, and we still get confusing rulings that no one understands.
The only saving grace I see is that they're going back to Naruto vs Pain which, IMO, was the best part of the series. I think most agree that after that fight the series just got bad. I'm hoping this will remind players of the better days when this game was at it's best. Hopefully, we'll see some better innovation card design wise to let us be more creative with deck building instead of just here's what you get now use it.
