DRK3;n10549052 said:- please correct me if im wrong, players who have been on the top of the ladder since early seasons - it's way harder, with netdecks being way more versatile vs all other decks, and with the matchmaking system dediciding to put me vs SC everytime i use my SK main deck, which is totally countered with all that control.
I'd say in most seasons we had some oppressive archetype that was hard to overcome. I wouldn't say it was easier back then.
However, this season it seems you can succeed with a lot of different decks. For example, Henselt, Alchemy NG, Great Swords, Eredin Frost, Consume, Deathwish Monsters, Coinflip ST or certain Shupe Decks... all seem like valid choices if you want to hit rank 20. I don't recall many seasons where this was possible.
But yeah, sometimes you see a lot of a certain type of archetype and have to try to adjust to that...
And matchmaking and coinflip can sometimes give you a rough time, no doubt.
