I knew I forgot to post somewhere.
I liked that the Sydicate’s primary motivation was to find out who was messing with their shyte and to make them stop. I kind of liked that Power Ring wasn’t the snivelling coward featured in Forever Evil. I did like the Guy Gardner type and the Jon Stewart type (part of the shyte that got messed with). Another thing that changed was that home field advantage.
I liked how despite not liking each other, which also depended on who was in the room, they chose to work together for their common goal(s). Their egos still get in the way when they aren’t on the battlefield. I liked the added earth 3 culture aspect of the favor system.
