Feels good to be the player who played the Heli Hero against Hmpf to start this whole thread. >=)

Rating System: Seems fine to me. I'm not sure the exact mechanics, but I've never had a complaint about it. Perhaps if I knew the mechanics I would suggest a change or two, but I'm happy with it as is.

Heli Hero: Used this card to perfection to win the sealed qualifier against good opponents (fewar, jojo, fantomkoala, and mythoSD) but I still don't think its imbalanced. Its not as if I open my sealed packs praying for a heli hero, but I am definately happy to see it. Just gonna add my comments about this card and its use:

- Someone else mentioned they only take it if they have at least one repair. I'm curious to see whether players who have a strong repair along with heli hero win more with it. In my case, ironically, I had no repair whatsoever.

- Another thing someone mentioned are debuffs. If you have pacify ground and pacify air, your heli hero is much better protected from a run in with an AA or Fighter. But there are many combinations of cards in sealed which lead to much success. I often lose to somebody who has enlist heavy, 2Xenlist merc light, and we need reinforcements. More often than not though, the most difficult card to play against is some form of airlift. Want to defeat a heli hero? Let it rush a unit of yours then drop 2-3 AA around it. My point is that "heli hero + repair" or "heli hero + debuffs" are not the only strong combinations of cards you can get in sealed.

- My last point about heli hero involves the strategy of using it. When I was less experienced, I would lose with it all the time because I would summon it turn one, and once my opponent saw it he would start producing AA/Fighters and it would be forced to hide or it would die. The real trick, imo, is to not use it right away. Don't show your opponent any air, then buy it once he has invested in tanks/recon/artillery. Heli Hero is one of the only effective counters for a tank rush, so I definately do not think the price should be adjusted.

I had 3 cards against air , so i thought i have lots of time to defend against air unit when it comes. And then you used heli hero :) . But i think i would lose anyway. I have made some very bad moves when trying to block resource lately.
