Well... You're not supposed to start in Dark Corners with a Z Palace deck... So complaining about that makes no sense! Sucks that you gotta go thru the low zones, but you should equip yourself properly in order to fight off those beasts!
On the other hand, maybe Old ELO would be a better system... A consistent deck format moderated by the best players of the gamemode as well as the staff and consistent for all players; instead of this league based system that basically requires you to be able to afford the big guns in order to reach a point where you CAN'T use the big guns. And I do agree some cards in the lower zones are oppresing anyone not using a similar card, like Missandei and Behemoth and No Love...
For me at least, what bothers me most is the diversity.
before we would have perma ban cards , weekly bans and that's it , i know what i can play with that week and what i can't.
In EFC , i want to play a decent card that i like? like Marlysa Cr m only at chronomuscle ring , want to play with Striker Cr and Marina ? too bad you can't use both after chrono ring , and marina isnt very high too.
old elo , if marina was banned for 1 week?? too bad , but maybe i could play her next week , in EFC if I happen to be in a rank above , i can never play that card again ; it just feels so bad for me.
Not even speaking about the point system (changing soon ) that i win 10 lose 1 , and stay with same points.
