For blood ties
court 4up - bake it in. It is doubtful that the standard unit is used in games because it is naked without the save.
stubborn on the coach- eliminate this from the game and allow the joke to die. It is simply a price increase for VK and unnecessary complexity.
ghouls - leave alone - it is a thematic core buff and that is what blood ties should do.
wraiths - kill the power - this one is not as bad as the coach but it effectively is just a bloodline tax on a bloodline that has consistently been weak throughout the history of the project.
knights - bake it in.
Then we need 4 new ties that are fair but fun. Strigoi stays as is.
Something like this could have been included in the last update and probably would have taken the sting out for some folks / made things go smoother.
The project promised to stop with the constant rules changes.
Do you really want the project to break it's promises to the community?
VC won't change rules (other than for gamebreakers) until the LAB, at which point expect more ambitious changes than just some extra bandaids.
