I’m silver and have only been playing since October (fairly casually). I see a trend oftentimes where I get beat out by epic and legendary cards that my lack of cards simply don’t feel like can compete with. With the addition of the latest expansion, I feel like my chance in winning, or even playing a game where it feels competitive, has diminished. This feeling was further supported when I watched 2 diamond players who had cards/decks that were simply way out of my available card selection and spirit budget.
The questions I have are (1) if power creep is prevalent in Duelyst (since the latest expansion) and (2) if this has led to a pay to win type situation with the game?
I am not asking against CP and Duelyst, and I am ok with this if these are the case; business is business. I just want to ask others if they feel that it is happening, or if it all just my imagination.
For anyone who says power creep isn’t prevalent, since the latest expansion, can I ask how far you have climbed in rank with a low budget deck, and how low was that budget? (I only want personal experience here please as anyone can spout theory and hypotheticals.)
