I'm already there btw.
Isn't the purpose of ranked matchmaking to see how far you have fared against other players? Doesn't that equals to "I'm better than X player because I am a good player and thinker in general"?. Well, playing an "autopilot" deck that you've been using the last 1000000...
I don't think it's a bad idea at all. It encourages versatility and actually proves that the player is a good player, not only being able to reach high ranks with one specific type of deck/faction. Versatile player who can adapt to different decks and still play well deserves better respect IMO.
I have a way better idea. Implement faction banning on Ranked Matchmaking. I have recently fought with a few unmasked Imlerith and Witcher 2 Dandelion, its pretty obvious that they got there last season because of Dagon because they play like poop this season.
The meta will keep changing within the period of the season. And I feel like 2 months feel "just right". If it is to last 3 months, then it would get pretty boring for active players as it is take a very short while to reach 3-4k mmr in a season.
Since we are at this topic, anyone know if shackles works on ambush unit already in this patch? It seems like people have started using ambush after the patch more often as a finisher, but last patch shackles wont lock them at all.
It's a yes and no for me. It cannot be prevented as the internet is vast, you can post deck builds almost everywhere and it's going to cost a lot and bring down the name of the game drastically if there were to be moderators going around banning top players from showing their builds here and...
It's pretty much the OPs fault for that. You have 30 (or more?) seconds to decide and that's a long time actually. There's casual for a reason, so you can practice and learn things from there. No fixing needed. /thread.
