I guess this event is proof that most character-related archetypes are lacking support. I mean, how can a card like Blue Eyes compete with the actual meta without getring any new support, such as Blue Eyes Twin Burst Dragon or Neo Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon? Also, why is Champion's Vigilance still limited? It's the only thing that could make vanilla monsters competitive again, and a lot of those ace monsters are vanillas.
I got to Gold 2 with Blue-Eyes but couldn't deal with Amazoness and Fur Hire from there on...I would say generic support (splashable tech) would be more welcome. Following the example of Blue-Eyes, the problem is not that it can't produce a strong or dominant field, it's that the 3-6 tech cards that CAN be splashed are insufficient to consistently take down meta decks that have effect advantage.
