I mean balance already is mostly random, so it probably wouldn’t be that bad. Sure every now and then you’d get a match where every high level player gets dumped onto one team, but on average it would probably be fairly even. Worst case, we have vote shuffle for a reason, just try for a second time
You also have to keep in mind this would be a decision made on DB’s death bed. The devs no longer want to cover the cost of the player data server, so instead of shutting down the game, they give us public accounts so we can still play to some degree. The alternative is that we don’t get to play at all.
SD is a company, them keeping the game up this long is a good PR move, but you can’t really expect that to last indefinitely with player count still dropping.
And would anyone really be angry at this point? Most of the old event cases have been purchasable for ages now and I haven’t seen any angry vet. We had our fun with our hard earned cards back in DB’s glory days. But DB has an average of less than 300 players online at any time now. Who are you really showing off to by keeping those cards exclusive? I get it sucks, but honestly, does it really matter if new players get to have fun in shiny pixels too? It’s just a game
