Police Brutality

So I've been playing in Daily Tournaments the past week to capitalize on the token system after sparingly playing UR on and off over the past year.

I noticed this past week, while playing in Daily Tournaments in the T1 (25 star) room, that just about every deck I played against was a Mono Sentinel deck with the same 8 characters.

It's always Hawk, Copper Cr, Martha, Westwood, Lehane, John, Carmen/Flinch/Melvin, and Morgan/Tobbie. The variety is infinite! smiley

If everyone is trying to get Tokens and is trying to win the Daily Tournament I understand they want the best deck, but 7/10 matches I play are against a Mono Sentinel deck.

I play UR for fun, and enjoy the challenge of playing against a variety of other decks and clans, and don't really care about the outcome of the match, whether I win or lose. But playing against the same deck over and over has gotten REALLY boring and almost annoying at this point. Not because I perform poorly (see below for recent results), but because I play this game to enjoy it and have fun. Playing against the same deck over and over is not fun.

I don't know if we can redo the penalty list or ban characters or what the solution is, but this Mono Sentinel thing is out of hand.

Elkas, I could go with the classic montra "if you can't beat them, join them" but I would much rather not conform to what seems to be the "main" or "only" way of reaching a top rank in a DT.

I agree, that is probably the best approach to countering mono Sentinel is to do it yourself. But a mono Sentinel vs mono Sentinel match is kinda boring.

I would love to play a variety of decks and try new things out. Or at least rock a legitimate deck with 2 random clans rather than doing the same, boring clan.

To each their own, obviously, it's just unfortunate that you have to play a game a certain way to achieve top results rather than having the opportunity to play the game your way and achieve the same results.
