I think we also need a Tainted 7 Chars leaderboard, but... instead of tainted version of classic 7 chars, we could discuss which 7 tainted chars should we run or let the community pick them.

Yes but i think we should discuss of that later. We don't know anything about the meta. Depending of the meta and after good knowledge of the game, we can determine which chars are the best. 7 Chars will help us determine that

Indeed we will have to wait, unless we let the community pick freely and play their meta or confortable picks.

I think that's the point of the topic, closed 7-tainted or open 7-tainted.

So i think we should let people pick the chars they wanna play so even if the meta change at some point it will not matter in the future.

Also since the tainted chars are harder, what about 5 tainted chars instead of 7 ? 7 was a great number in previous dlcs but now i feel like it's more convenient with this dlc

Looking at the Tainted chars, I can see 5 chars who are clearly good for speedrunning (Isaac, Judas, Samson, Azazel and Lilith) and then 3-4 of them are ok, but either harder or more gimmicky. A 5 tainted char run would be a good point of entry where everyone pick the same chars and get used to them. Then a 7 open-tainted would let people include 2 more chars of their choice in the mix.

And for the craziest people, they will try sac rooms with tainted maggy and no hit tainted eden with some OP things like Mercurius or Void/Mega mush so yeah maybe 7 doesn't make it free
