i only think that l5r games take so long cause the game is new. once people memorize the cards it should go faster. mtg is a pretty thinky game at times too and you can play most games of mtg in 30min. i think taking 60+ to play l5r is really bad. i dont think games should take that so and if they are you’re doing it wrong. should only be taking 30 seconds to a minute tops to make descions. it’s not as complicated as everyone makes it out to be. just my opinion though. not many people want to play 60+ minute games. if we did we would play board games. my gf quit the game cause games took too long as when she played in our group and there was an odd man out she would be sitting there watching everyone else for a good 60+ minutes which is super boring. no one wants to sit there for that long doing nothing. it’s a waste of time and we have better things to do. games shouldn’t take longer than 30 minutes or so if you know what you’re doing. also in regards to being pro, no one gets good unless you put in the time. same for anything. if you want to be good you have to play lots of games and understand the meta. the same people win events all the time because they out in the effort. only issue with this game and others is that games take far to long to play test at a good pace.

The game being a job is exactly why we’ve reduced the emphasis on “competitive” playing for Doomtown:Reloaded and have focused on making the game (and tournaments) more about having fun and engaging with the community. So far, the players have expressed that it’s a much better shift, than everything being focused on large competitive environments.

Honestly, “game being a job” is the situation with ALL ccg/lcg’s. The players who devote a lot of time to understanding the metagame, knowing every card and deckbuild, and following all the FAQ/errata/bannings, are always the ones who are going to dominate competitive events (assuming they’re skilled players, too, of course). If you’re more of a casual player – that’s fine, but you shouldn’t expect to do very well at tournaments – whether you’re talking about Magic, Doomtown, Netrunner, or L5R.

“There are too many fun games around to have one be your job….” Extremely well said. While I acknowledge that those who choose to make L5R their “job” will have a huge (and deserved) advantage over us “regular folks”, it is just a game. 95+% of players just want to have fun playing.
