When I'm at Polit Arena and am facing off against repeated Noctezuma and Quetzal, I know something isn't quiet right.
I can't quite put my finger on it on account that it smells bad too.
Inb4, 'you face people from different stages because it saves on match making time'...since that's OBVIOUSLY how match making works in EFC , it's just even worse than I originally thought.
I truly miss elo...RIP.
Just an overview of matchmaking in EFC:
Dark Corners can face anyone from Dark Corners up to Danger Zone
ChocoMuscle Ring can face anyone from Dark Corners up to EFC Tower
Danger Zone can face anyone from Dark Corners up to Polit Arena.
EFC Tower can face anyone from ChocoMuscle Ring up to Z Palace
Polit Arena can face anyone from Danger Zone up to Z Palace
Z Palace can face anyone from EFC Tower to Z Palace
I do understand Quetzal and Noctezuma Cr are big obstacles for Polit Arena. It does get tougher as you progress.
The idea to overcome them differentiates the ones who make it to Z Palace and are considered strong at league.
There will be players who miss the old ELO but that is that.
So...basically, the reward for getting up into Polit Arena is being crippled against other competitors near your level?
That makes about as much sense as bashing an ice skater in the leg just because they proved to be good enough to compete.
I agree, this is pretty stupid because it's not anymore of: Whose the best in all games but who has the best cards. Especially in the early levels it's terrible to face those great hands while you have an okay hand.
Yet you must not forget you're sometimes facing someone a couple of zones above you and then you have more chance to win. So it can also have a good side.
You can't guarantee each person you face plays like each other. It's a constant guessing game. You might be good at guessing, but you will never be 100% each time. Throw in the fact players from previous zones are packing broken (oftend DT banned) cards and your chances drop significantly.
EFC isn't about skill.
It's about luck.
And the only way players can improve their luck is by maximizing their collections.
EFC is just UR's cash grab.
I'll stick to DT's, thanks...until those get trashed too.
EFC isn't only about luck. Using a your skill to build a good Z Palace deck and then using your skill to beat people using stronger decks than yours. Luck comes in the matchmaking but that exists in every mode, including DT. Playing in T2 against a low level opponents using an all five stars deck, isn't that being lucky? Now, if you can't beat around the difficulties of the mode that is supposed to be the hardest one, maybe you are not that skillful. Notice that I am not trying to insult you, I tend to do better in DT instead of EFC.
