You either play in Crest, or don't play at all. Pixies were (are?) running rampant since they started re-selling faction pack, even more once snow flakes grinding started. Basically, pixies roflstomp netdeckers with their BKR/Urgrant/Serpent. They can lock lvl 4+ for 2 rounds, iczer for 2 (or play another unit), then lock characters for another 2 rounds, then iczer for 4. Lock is gone, opponent has 6LP less and can finally play their precious lvl 4+ character. That's of course theory, you usually need to spend some sp on reviving units killed by dmg ss. Another form of lock (but poeple don't refer to it usually) is sp denial. Fierte ss resets thei sphere lvls, and then assassin ss sends their big, fat unit (played after 4+ rounds of lock with pixies' open skills) straight to hell. Err, I mean cemetary.
