Prismata Units
Doomed Drone
We're thinking of adjusting Doomed Drone's supply from 20 down to 10. This isn't really a change motivated by balance, but rather a change motivated by taste/preference. Would you prefer to see a Doomed Drone with fewer supply? Select all that apply:

Analysis Mode
Currently in Prismata, you can open the menu and click "Analyze" from within ANY Prismata game or replay to open a new window in which you can play for both sides, allowing "off-the-board analysis" of any Prismata position.

Some players have suggested that we remove this option in some situations (e.g. arena games), which would discourage off-the-board analysis of games by making it more difficult for players.

(Note that it would still be possible to perform off-the-board analysis of any position by creating a custom game, analyzing within that custom game, and playing forward to a specific board state.)
Should the "Analyze" button be removed from the in-game menu during ARENA GAMES?
Should the "Analyze" button be removed from other screens?
Check all that apply.
Any other comments on the "Analysis" feature?
Your answer
Arena/Collectibles
"Autoscum"
We've been considering a rule change to arena scoring called "Automatic start-scum" or "Autoscum". With Autoscum rules in place, players would not receive any strikes for losses in arena runs until they had won a game. What do you think of this? Check all that apply.

I believe that the card-flipping Armory minigame is a fair strategy for the developers to avoid starving and freezing to death in the cold Canadian winter.
Comparing the daily bonuses with the arena rewards, I believe that the quantity of Shards/Power Cores earned is balanced between the two.

My skill as a Prismata player is reflected in the value of the collectible rewards I receive.

I feel that the rewards obtained from arena runs provide a good incentive to play more, or play longer sessions.
The QUALITY of collectibles I receive reflects the amount of effort I've put into obtaining them.
When I have an exceptionally strong arena performance, I feel like I receive compensation that reflects my performance.
