Alveskren, I partially agree with you. What you said in your two posts is understandable and actually correct. But, I want to say something "in defense" of these missions. While it's true that you have to focus on particular characters, on the other hand it's also true you can try new combinations or try oher cards that have potential but used a lot less because of more powerful options. Let me give you an example with Frozn's mission. You have to win 50 pillz. Let's pick two cards that are not played often but they give you tons of pillz: Suqi and Arlene. Now, these characters are not played because of better options at level 4, Stompah and Krompah 4*. The two previous cards are not that bad, but they are just weaker cards and less solid than the two yetis. Nobody says you should avoid the two pillz manipulator cards, because they can give you a different option in terms of deckbuilding and going for a different strategy. You can play very aggresively and not caring too much about pillz with these two cards and also, given the bonus, you can create certain situations that make you win games easily. You can also go to a pillz manipulator strategy and so you don't have to worry too much about spending too less or too many pillz!
What I'm trying to say is that these new missions (not all of them though) let you experiment a lot with different cards that don't get played a lot, but they can give you good results.
I would like to make one thing clear: it's better to have missions than not to have. Either type of missions.
ARK_Roiler I am not saying that everything that comes from the missions is bad. What I am saying is that cons far outweight the pros. I understand the advantage you are talking about but then again, forcing you to win 15 games with Frozn if you are not too much of a Frozn player normally might make you use some of the pillz manipulator cards (it also depends whether you are mono or the characteristics of the other half). In fact, although rarely, you could spot some Suqi and Arlene in ELO before. The problem now is that people will brute force the mission, on average, thus they won't even acquire a taste for said cards, I believe.
Then again I maintain what I said initially, a vote would be a good way for the staff to be sure how to proceed
Are the season missions not unlocking for anyone else?
i've only got the missions from roots down with progress bars, the rest just say "available until 14/07"
i've already played a few elo fights with a montana/nightmare split deck to see if it'd have them start, but no joy
