It took some getting used to, but i'm loving this new extended tournament system! this is way better than limiting star count to 25* or 40* like before... now you can build your deck based on strategy alone! i know i was complaining at first, but i totally changed my mind!
...so, eh, what's that? standard, you say? i think i vaguely heard of it... but as far as i'm concerned it's not appealing at all, i'll just continue to play extended and forget standard even exists... mind you, that may change in the future... everything's possible!
i sympathize with those who want tournaments back in elo
as well... although in my experience, elo
DTs just weren't competitive compared to T1 and T2, mainly because of the longer time limit, and the fact that you were constantly facing skilled elo
players who cared more for their elo
ranking than for tournaments. i guess people just miss getting a free credit every 2 hours while elo-ing lol! and i can't argue with that!
just one thing: it would be nice if UR did have separate rankings for standard and extended... given the low number of players currently competing in standard, it might actually be an incentive for more people to play there lol!
also, alternating tournaments would be good... not every 2 hours like it was suggested, but every hour, so let's say at odd hours there would be tournaments in standard, and even hours would have tournaments in extended... it would also take care of the separate rankings issue.
