It's a small sample size, of course. Many of the Varuna players are brand new to PanO... They've never played PanO before, and Varuna reeled them in because they're competitive and thematically/aesthetically appealing (I know this because I asked the new guys what brought them to PanO, particularly two of the VIRD players in the Top 20.) I think Acon is completely viable in competition, but they weren't popular before. No reason they would be now, even with positive changes. NCA is simply too new for anyone to risk trying them in a huge event. Even Tohaa guys were hesitant to use the new tools, because they're still processing what they're capable of and haven't had a lot of time to practice. So it's a combination of factors that makes VIRD popular. They're competitive. They look good. They're easy to collect.
