Part 3: Why I don’t need statistical data
see previous post. i was pointing out how you have misleading presumptions on how people behave. I only needed to point out where you made your mistakes
I’m sorry your decades of gaming made you think that “salty scrub” is the only type of player. if you actually played CCGs, maybe you’d learn of Timmys Jhonnys and Spikes.
tadaaaa your lack of a poll makes this pretty bad. you know what’s worse? you can’t even narrow that poll down to people interested in playing CCG
Part 4: You’re just running your mouth off and it shows. just look at this part where you’re rambling about matchmaking.
Strawman. Look it up. Did i ever say anything about matchmaking?
and hey, while we’re at it, did it not occur to you that the matchmaking and ladder system of duelyst is a “feel-good” one? you never drop out of silver. you never drop out of diamond. you never drop out of S rank. you’re encouraged to experiment via the faction quests. and equally, you’re encouraged to challenge yourself and climb the ranks. it’s designed to make you feel good because you know you’re higher than bronze or silver the moment the next season hits.
Part 5: more of your rambling
ad hominem attack. if your way of winning arguments is to make assumptions about the opposition and use it to discredit them, then the only thing you’re achieving is 1) showing people how much of an asshole you are 2) embarrassing yourself. you don’t know me, and you can’t claim that i live in some duelyst bubble just because you can’t comprehend some of duelyst design choices, and truly understand what’s so good and bad about them. here’s a little secret though: I’ve been playing for quite some time too, but i don’t embarrass myself by bragging about my “GLORIOUS DECADES OF GAMING AND SPORT”, or brand myself as some specialist on “THE VERY PSYCHE OF THE EVERYMAN”. i’m saying the way you establish your credibility is both cringey and fails to establish your credibility at all
duelyst is an online CCG and the strategies can only vary so much, and mechanical skill does not matter. one guy literally just reached top 1 by cheesing a decktype people weren’t quite used to. There is only so many significantly different iterations of the matches you can play in this game, especially when you subscribe to a specific set of playstyles. have you heard of casual games boi
and yes, it can be a competitive game when the need or demand for it arises (diamond climbing, S rank, tournaments), but you know what else can? Fucking Rock Paper Scissors.
