Right, so the theoretical double efficiency you get with your 2 claws lasts for maybe 20 seconds before the opposing alliance starts messing with you and the sacks on your side. With so many objects this year, even a claw with increased efficiency from the "standard" doesn't seem more efficient than a mass intake/outtake device.
In Gateway, I remember claws had a bit of popularity because their bonus point speed seemed to have potential. Now that we have a game that doesn't reward one object scoring, returns with descoring and has even more objects than Gateway, I don't see claws being extremely popular in competition.
