Good debate guys. Need to have a discussion about these kinds of things. Better matchmaking, and better banlists imo needs to be a start, it will even out the game mode much more.
Secondly jerromy id just like to address your point of Elo being not noob friendly, with a budget deck and the right cards you definitely could have done well.
Also, putting a handicap on the best players does prove them surely to be the best, but that's at the cost of stressing them out dude! If I wanted to casually play Elo I could have , EFC for a top top player is much harder work than it needs to be. Ur is a game, not a job, you shouldn't need to stress so much about it.
Well giving chance for us to dus off our old cards was great idea but most of them are not build for the 14 life format and some cards are crazy powerfull and i get sigma cr every game wtf is that draw chance to get one fucked up card that totally wrecks and al lthose sarc dr is just cancer. 10 dmg from a 3 star card gg trying to overcome that with uranus graxx and baka and oxo and whatever shit there is. It is super frustrating i get it when i face kiki cr or ymirah cr or maana cercei decks. Some people ar ealfully lucky with their draws. The game mode was supposed to bring diversity and some old cards are beyond broken with the 14 life points i wonder why i havent seen sylth cr decks but i guess jungo lack the dmg reduction to sustain a one hit deck. there really need some universal point system for cards compared to their stars.
I have minimal interest in prizes and rewards.
I played to have fun in a challenging environment in which players were more or less equal to one another.
elo supplied just that
With it gone, I haven't played a game since EFC's release date.
I won't either...not unless elo returns.
Oh and another point to just throw out there that's been mentioned before but not really covered I guess, linked to match-making, is that beating a 2 handed man in a fist fight where you bring a gun doesn't make you a better fighter or more skilled in any sense!
The wins and losses and the points given needs to change to reflect that, alongside the matchmaking (please Chaos I know you read these things )
