Sorry if this is the wrong forum, It just seems like it's the closest thing to a "general UR discussion" that we got.
So in all seriousness, does anyone actually enjoy the random factor that happens at certain hours during the tournaments?
It just seems like an awful idea, that could do nothing but lead to frustration. I mean, if you were playing a serious game of chess, wouldn't it kinda take the fun out of it if you had to flip a coin to see whether or not your move played out as planned or your piece just got thrown in a random direction?
At very least, I'd love if we even had 2 separate rooms for the Type 2 tournaments where one ALWAYS was non-random. The random thing just isn't appealing in any way, shape or form. Is anyone with me on this?
I hate random fights. Can't tell you how many times I've lost a round with something like my 42 atk card vs a 24 atk card, or my 16 atk card vs a 12 atk card. It happens SO DANG OFTEN and it pisses me off so much, especially when I calculated the necessary atk power to barely beat the opponent! And rarely does it happen in my favor. Random should not be part of the game. Card games are about calculable risk, not about trusting the fate of invisible dice and believing in the heart of the cards.
"Ponchos likes chess..." Lol I am a member of my local chess club. I am very happy that chess does not have a random factor. It would totally destroy this great game! In chess is no guessing! No random! You simply need to think and to calculate, no guessing and coin flipping!
Most players hate random because it is brainless and unfair. There is no strategy at all. There is no need to think, the random factor is decisive anyway. Play your 5 * cards with 6 pillz each or every single card with 3 pillz, it does not make a difference! You simply get frustrated when you lose with much attack all the time. Random is never fair. I´ve often lost 10 battles in a row with more attack. 6 pillz Timber and I am lost, it is as simply as that.
Because of that I have tried decks with many damage reducers in random tournaments. And I actually win most of the games in using such decks. My opponents still play their 6 pillz Timber as always, simply ignoring my Uranus...
But unfortunately these damage reducers make the games too slow, I do not have 2 hit ko (Uranus loses first round to unbeatable random 6 pillz Timber) and my opponents tend to think for ever...
The random factor should be staff banned, it is much more broken than Hawk ever was. Or at least decrease the almighty random factor a bit! At least it disappeared in the training rooms (thanks! One step in the right direction.).
@ Colossal: Many players already do that! They do not play random tournaments any more because they hate them! I am sure that most players do not like the random factor at all. I would not complain about a tiny random factor. But the random factor is far far to big. It is like flipping coins. Every level 5 player can easily beat you in playing is Timber with 6 pillz and then playing another 5 star card wtih 6 pillz again. This is frustrating because it is not about strategy any more. So at least decrease the almighty random factor a bit!
