    Reduce the gold cost of "Madness in the Mountains" campaign. 25,000 gold is way too much!

    That's how it was since they were created all the way to the DoG revamp. They were eventually turned into real units for some reason, which also gave them upgrades on top of font contesting potential. Again, these are traits they didn't have before that revamp and completely changed how they're played.

    My memory isn't great (and I'm too lazy to look it up) but didn't how summons function also change? The revamp making a greater distinction between being summoned and real.

    So before the revamp summons could contest fonts and after they couldn't. So changing them to real was really a way of them preserving their original function rather than changing it. Though they did get upgrades as a by product.

    Yeah, summons could contest but not cap at one point. That's kind of important because the difference between turning a font from owned to neutral is not as bad as straight up switching ownership. This gave more breathing room when stitched won a font battle because they'd have to contest with relics or endanger the oh so precious reconstructor units in order to gain ground. They also didn't drop nora globes which is another major thing because it leads to resource inflation. Stitched can now sort of cheese out games through reconstructed Dreameater sidecaps, which is pretty weird. Originally, the best reconstruct was Magician since it was 7 range but upgrades changed all that. I think that they are fundamentally too different from their original design now that there's a clear distinction between destruction and sacrifices, which eliminated most reconstruct combo option selects they had and there's also the swarm/lava thing. On top of all this, the merge mechanic was never really useful to the point I reached BM with stitched without ever using it before the revamp outside of unranked meme games where I wanted to test it.

    I remember trying to get the merge mechanic changed to any three stiched, or else simply removed, since there is no way anyone would engineer a situation of three specific champs adjacent for a merge that would usually be a bad trade of three remains producers to one overpriced 2x2.

    If it was any three you could at least get some value from stitchlings and such and occasionally get use from it.
