From now on, you can play Deathmatch mode in Standard format; the rules and wins will be the same as in Extended format (to find out more about Standard format, click here). And, given the low number of players in Extended 25, we have decided to remove it from the list of formats available in Deathmatch mode. Finally, we have also decided to ban Ambre in Standard format and this will apply to all the different game modes. Happy gaming to you all!
Well I tried - using a ELO/Extended 25 format deck in deathmatch, ended up against an all 5 star deck (Using Ambre.)
Played a second match - same thing.
So basically the rules seem to be saying that unless you play a 40 star deck you might as well not play Deathmatch or Survivor.
Each Mode (Deathmatch, Survivor, etc.) _needs_ a format that puts a level/power limit whether it be Extended 25 or ELO, otherwise it just ends up being about who can get the best cards. As I understood the goal of the changes and introduction of Standard and Extended format was to eliminate that.
I like playing in the Extended 25. Please reconsider this change and put it back since playing in Extended is so overstarred and the game is overkill. Extended 25 places cap on star count thus making the room a somehow fair enough DM.
I think this is a good move. Banning Ambre in standard by itself is good move (she should be banned all together, but it won't happen), but making another standard format room is good.
The only thing that doesn't seem to be understood by the staff, and many players have voiced this, is that 25* and under limited rooms is desired. They represent a more challenging manner of play than the brain dead 40* smash fest
