The thing is, my 56% overall win rate includes games that I deliberately lost for the sake of missions, experimenting with weird decks in DT, and the good old days when I was a complete noob (rather than the semi-noob I am now.)
The other thing is, I have a big issue with the whole "it can't ever be determined" answer... Because it's simply not true.
scores are observable. Win rate is observable.
We can, in theory, see what kind of win rate people who achieve high ELO
scores have, specifically in ELO
, when they are playing to win, with decks that they feel comfortable using. That would give us a good idea of just how much luck factors into ELO
Maybe you feel that's too much work, and that's okay.
But you can check your battle history, talk to your fellow players, try to get a rough idea of how often win streaks happen (as opposed to losing streaks...)
And then you can come in here and give an opinion that's based on something.
I just don't get why someone would want to say "this game is 37% skill, 25% collection size, and 38% luck" and then not try to explain that at all. I'm not necessarily saying that person would be wrong. I'm saying until people at least offer a hint of why they've come to their conclusions, there isn't anyone who can guess whether they have any validity or not.
TLDR: If you want to discuss game mechanics, pretend this is 5th grade math and show your work.
