So far, for me it has. I’m in the U.S., started playing a few days ago and hit Silver rank yesterday. I notice that if I play from around Noon to 8PM I tend to get stomped into submission by lizard men busting out 3 8/8 creatures by turn 2 and dismembered giant robot body parts.
However, if I play past that, the battles are a lot more evenly matched, and I see lots of interesting cards and strategies.
Next day, noon rolls around and it’s time to get curbstomped again lol
Is this typical? What could be the cause? Do the people with crazy decks go to sleep at the same time? Whatever the case, if you’re new to the game, try playing late at night and see if that lets you climb that ladder, or at least earn some gold.
