@Delta915 If that really is the case, I really think this decision should be reversed. The main idea of the card stack is to make the randomness less random. I personally do not like that option but for people who would like to have it, make it actually work like they would intuitively think it would work.
If you are claiming to give a feel of playing the real board game, it should feel like it 100%. I agree with this as it was said by other users.
In addition to the card stack, other elements should be like that as well - limiting the resource decks to 19. Especially if people want to play competitively and practice for real-life tournaments, having the game behave 100% like the real world game would be essential.
