Actually I disagree with that remark, customs allow some variety with what spells you can cast and creatures as well, theres no denying that a straight god fight is SORTA balanced and you know what youll be up against though.
------------------ I walk in the cloak of the night, find me and you will perish.
how many customs do you know that don't include:
Chanel lvl 1 (ok so persephone has a small following, maybe 1 in 10) persephone or james lvl 3 persephone or charnel lvl 4
The answer: not many. As a person who has played hundreds of games as straight pyro, I can attest that these combinations do not make for varied gameplay. They make for BORING gameplay. That is why I probably won't be playing sacrifice a week from now.
(oh yeah, and Black and White. Lets hope everyone doesn't use the same strategy in that game).
By not using a whole custom book, you ELIMINATE YOUR CHANCES OF MAKING THAT GOD'S FUTUTRE SPELLS EFFECTIVE. I use Blights and Styx, great combo if used properly.

I agree. I've never played online but I have noticed in the campain that mixing gods' spells and creatures is more powerful than being monotheistic (faithful to one god).
