What if instead of being what it is atm by allowing people that have strong and expensive decks at the low ranks making newcomers not have a pleasent elo aproach and climb we separate the EFC.
there is still the 7 zones but now, instead of going from dark corners to zpalace you pick wich one you want to play and make the deck that is allowed there this would create a more distinct and interesting elo approach, everyone can choose where they want to start depeding on their reach and cards or their playstyle.
tell me your opinions on this.
@Curasi that is absolutely true thats why t1 has his kinda of balanced mechanic but people that start to play the game from scratch kinda complain on this so let me take a very usefull example to explain
hearthstone a well known semi casual semi professional game of cards, if you go in and start the game the deck that is given to you can easily go to ranked and play till rank 20 becuse you cant lose rank till there, and becuse its such a low rank you will barely see people with strong decks from rank 20 to usually 10 people tend to play some interesting inovative decks and after rank 10 people start only using what is meta
in this game when you play ranked you are greeted by people with the top tier cards and if you win you will start to see less and less of this wich is kinda weird it should be the other way around so people that are new have a chance to play elo when they start the game and then when they get better decks to climb higher not to start the game get to elo get stomped and realise they need alot of strong cards to play, im making this just becuse this game wishes to get into steam wich is great and will bring alot of new players and the game needs to be prepared for that
Truth be told i can only see this mode getting better if we players lend a hand helping them out. since its new the cards might not be in ther right zones. time an players can help with that easy.
i think if you usen a deck a zone above the zone your in should earn you more points really.
@Cutasi, it's not a guaranteed win against a somewhat well put together deck but I think we can call it a solid 95% chance against a cheap common deck.
Dark corners and chocomuscle are pay to win zones, not really free to play. If I'm a newbie, can only make one sell on the market and only have an array of common and uncommon cards, there's no area for me. At least in old elo, 900 and below had people like you. Now at the very beginning, you have monster decks that lets say robin william Kyle and that zdrone that you've saved a week for don't have a very solid chance, and losing doesn't even get you away from them.
@Divinedevek yep exactly or we invert the EFC for a more kinda hearthstone aproach or we do a section EFC zone or maybe something like a banned heavy elo like the old one but that creates a thing that is people wish to play with those cards and they feel that they cant buy them and use them becuse they are banned.
I wish they would make it if you make it were you play what 2 zones away from the zone your in
say your in zone
3- Danger zone
you are more likely to play 2- Chocomuscle ring or 4-EFC Tower has a 72% for a mach making an 28% chance match making for 1- Dark corners or 5- Polit arena that way it balance out for players much better.
