Ultimately I think the direction this game is going won’t work. It’s essentially gambling under the facade of strategy with higher and higher cost.
Each game is so randomly draw dependent, and then in order to have a chance to overcome that you can purchase more to get to higher levels. This may offset a bad draw some but then if the other side has high level cards it’s over.
As you look at regular matchmaking it’s fine. You are upset your rating goes up and down but ultimately in a direct sense that doesn’t cost you. Here is where they’re trying to bleed you. They’re pushing events and they’re pushing it hard. Sure they can say things about how it’s team building and activity and whatever but ultimately participation costs you money. Excelling in any manner, even more. We won’t even touch on what they’ve done with bots and boosted decks but what a cluster that is. So now you are spending for a CHANCE to play (against a booster player/bot) and praying you don’t get a bad draw because almost every attempt costs you.
They are soon going to base whole team standing on events so you’re going to have to really pay out to ultimately gamble how something is going to go…
As in…who spends more
Overall, how is this in ANY way a better way to compete or indication of a teams strength than the regular matches?
