If you are talking about this bug with selection of Monster faction then, unfortunately, this is very true. :/Yep, because the winner's been known before the 'faction challenge' started, everyone just kept choosing Monsters even if it wasn't their favourite faction.
Then comes Nilfgaard which has like 10 different good builds so it's the most popular faction, just people kept choosing Monsters just to win the event...
I know a lot of 'youtubers' who choose Monsters in spite of their fav being Skellige or Scoia, only to win, ehh...
Not only that.If you are talking about this bug with selection of Monster faction then, unfortunately, this is very true. :/
Interesting.... I've seen a metric ton of both SK and MS. ST and NG are less common but not exactly rare. NR is probably the rarest. Although the Adda deck floating around has been popping up lately. Even when I was running MS myself it wasn't any of the more popular builds because everyone is teched against them.During the event I think I faced like 20 Big Woodlands, 15 Mourntrant Eredin, and maybe 35 Nilfgaard but the variety of decks was so big that each fight was interesting. Aside of that, maybe 2 times Skellige, 5 times Scoia and a total of 5 Northen Realms
There are plenty of T1 decks though. Not just for MS. Some of the popular MS builds just happen to be extremely easy and forgiving to pilot.Don't ask me why, I didn't choose MS. But I think that if someone's tryharding to get to next league (eg. from 5th to 0), they're gonna play only this 1 deck that gives best win-rate over and over again, and it so happens that it's a Monsters deck.
So even if MS is not their favourite in terms of joy, they play mainly this faction...
BTW MS has a big fun base from the Beta where Nekkers consumption's been something else.
(Rant on) 8 Matches today...all against Monsters (hey Monster players: the challenge is over!) I don't want to play any more matches..not fun. 6 matches in Casual against Big Woodland! In Casual! Play Tier 1 decks in Ranked. I have an Anti-Big Woodland deck, but it's not too fun to play and if I play it I don't see not one Big Bois deck. Interesting... (Rant over)Maybe now CDPR will take the needed nerf for Monsters more seriously.
And now we get the damn 'Monsters Arena' again, which was the only one faction Arena event we already had since HC...
