Hey everyone, A quick introduction here, my ign is TheMagma and I have been playing this game since March. I don’t often comment or make posts, etc. but this is a topic that I feel very strongly on
The Rng nature of Zirix’s BBS has come up before in the past and I’m aware of the answers CPG gave as to why Zirix’s BBS remains Rng based. But the justification received simply just doesn’t feel good enough!
I feel that having control over being able to place the poop dervish would be a massive improvement not only to strategic elements of the game but also to the enjoyment of using Zirix. I don’t know how many times I’ve spawned a poop dervish and have had it land in range of faie’s warbird only to feel like an absolute idiot for simply trying to take advantage of the bbs; same thing goes for trying to play around makantor and holy immolaton, the fact that in these circumstances its almost better just to not take advantage of the bbs feels very defeating and very frustrating especially when having control over positioning would allow players the chance to still play around all of those effects and more.
The strategic positional reasons as to why the bbs should be place-able are all very obvious - using the dervish to block passage to mana tiles, positioning it to steal a mana tile in order ramp; using it for general body blocking; using it to set up for 3rd wish lethals/plays; or at the very very least saving it as a body to trade to control board, etc.
plus it makes dervish support cards like the current iteration of third wish much more reliable and consistent in their usage allowing for more dynamic and interesting lines of play rather than as it currently exists: “hooray it spawned in line with my general and now its gonna die to warbird while i eat more dmg this is fun RNG is great”!
A large part of enjoying the game I believe comes from being able to employ and carry out strategies and specific lines of play that the player has direct control over.
as it stands now the bbs Rng does not make the game more fun and dynamic but rather just more frustrating; its very obvious that Bloodborn Spells are an integral aspect to how the game is played and proper usage is very important in finding success and is an element that i feel players should have control over - Reva as we all know has this exact element of control and can utilize positioning to either set up for a buff spell next turn or to simply create a distraction to warp the opponents play and positioning.
This is a very simple wishlist request and It feels like there is no reason as to why players shouldn’t have control over this bbs spawn. This is a change I would love to see. So please CPG, i ask, nay I beg please for the love/hate of Rngesus please make the BBS spawn be place-able. Thanks for reading everyone, I know the post is long. see you all out there on the battlegrounds!
