Lemme start with how I found duelyst. It was a (insert weather here) day, and I was bored. I decided to look for Final Fantasy Tactics multiplayer, online. Very specific I know. I searched for a few hours, and found a website called something like “dueling grounds” about FFT. Checked it out, then went to bed. Next morning, I looked up “duelist” and the steam page for dooly came up. I was ecstatic. I had found a game where I could customize my army with hundreds of cards, and make my deck. Not yours, not anyone elses. But mine. It was my personally created army. Unique because of my own inefficient combos that I thought up. It was perfect.
Then everything changed when the Thanatos Nation attacked.
Suddenly, this thing drops in front of us. This disgusting thing that kills our creativity, cripples our archetypes, and makes things less fun.
(ignore the text, just look at the name)
This upsets me. The playerbase isn’t big enough to do have 2 seperate ques, one for rotated and one not. If you guys are worried about new players being intimidated by all the cards, don’t be. Shadowverse has had more expansions than I can count, and they get new players every day. They (afaik) have no rotation! Don’t even get me started on physical TCG’s… But the reason shadowverse can get players in, is because they get a bunch of free stuff crammed down their throat. Oh, you completed the mandatory tutorial? Have 5 boosters! Oh, you logged in? Have a booster! Oh, you won 2 games? Have a Booster! Constantly. Then they have events for more free stuff. If you want more players, don’t alienate the ones you have already, just make it more newbie friendly.
Thanks for reading, have a good day.
