And I've allowed that limitations may be revealed in the future which will make it clear why Charlie doesn't use Kingworld (*Ptui!*) more often.
But a lot of time and comics have passed, and I'd suspect that any reveals on Kingworld (*Ptui!*) may be retconjuration. Which wouldn't make them bad, and in fact if my pointing out on the forums that Kingworld (*Ptui!*) is overpowered and has no real limitations which prevent it from being spammed brings about such retconjuration I'd be tickled.
On the other hand, you're not seriously suggesting that no author has ever introduced a power/ability/spell/ whatever you want to call it into a story without missing the implications of that power, are you? There is a trope about this which I've linked before that is chock full of examples, so that can't be it, can it? Unless you're claiming that Rob is flawless and that all those other authors who missed the implications of some power their characters used, well, they just suck. No, that can't be it.

Jetstone was still at a disadvantage without Jillian, and even without Parson's Picnic, if Jetstone had fired on GK, corpses woulda fallen anyway and then been Decrypted, so same result.
You really must try to get your facts right. There was nothing that was going to achieve the "same result." If that was true then Parson would have gone with that plan instead of risking Wanda and Jack on the chance of a death by fall. The best
plan before Parson's was Jack suggesting that Wanda decrypt the dragons and mounts as they fell, effectively doubling their damage absorption. And that wasn't a plan which was thought to be any kind of a sure thing. And remember that Wanda was in the air zone, and could not decrypt any unit what hit the courtyard. So no guarantee that she gets every falling unit anyway, unless the 'pliers can spam decryption so fast that falling doesn't matter. And no Jetstone units could have been decrypted, no matter how many they killed, because again off-turn and in the air zone and can't cast to the tower or courtyard or wall. So Jack's plan was just a delaying tactic that hopes to run Jetstone out of arrows and spells, and survive to the next turn with whatever remained alive.

The net is for capturing, not transport. It's highly unlikely that a merc caster would allow themselves to be captured by Charlie.
Yo, dude, don't be a dick. You have no idea what the capabilities of the net are, do you? You just like making shit up and presenting it as evidence. Show me the comic which explains that the net can only be used to transport a captured unit. Show me the comic which explains that the archons were rallied from the surrounding area, and none of them came from Charlescomm. Or STFU and don't call me a dick!
