Just like how the blue color in MtG was designed to be focused on things like cancel and unsummons and stuff. That's how you make a rich diverse game by making different colors. It's like saying, "How why don't you build a Solar Kingdom file that doesn't use start skills," or "play a Gowen file that doesn't win by doing damage lots of ways". Start skill buffing spam and damage spam has been a mechanic that's been good since forever. The whole point of playing a sphere is to use the strengths of that sphere to try to win games. So if you make a Gowen deck you pack it full of kick-ass, if you make a lawtia file you pack it full of tricks and sp degen, if you make a refess file you pack it full of start skill spam. If you take away the manipulation abilities then there is no reason to use falkow units. You might as well use Refess units and start skill spam to hell.
Like you guys seriously lack design perspective.
And I proposed you files that stray from this path of the sole identity of a sphere and yet manage to dominate.
MTG has more than one control aspect.
What about Position control?
What about engage control?
What about AGI control?
Those aspects of control have so much variety to offer, yet haven't been explored the least in favour of something that has been complained about since day one.
Why bother reforming the enemy's field when you can just weaken it and smash it from behind?
Look at frog, arguably one of the most useful support units in Falkow, employing an entirely different style of control that is by now more common in Refess than in Falkow. What is he most commonly used for? Diondora. (Yes Icy, he is used in Serpents as well, I ackowledge that)
If you are saying that a sphere should only have one identity, in a game with endless possibilities and mechanics, then I pity the future of Alteil, because an important member of the testing team has a horizon as broad as the tip of a razor blade. A direction should not dictate an identity.
And if you believe following one path is good from a design perspective, then am afraid sooner or later you will run out of options, whether you want it or not.
