I guess you only play FFA (and think only that goes wrong and think FFA actually matters), so you don't know how much it did affect in the past and still affects it right now in a bad way.
show some courtesy for what? For spending a ton and then feeling entitled to free wins? No thank you.
You can grind for free an EN deck in a year or less, so you should care about what you say either way.
And dude, congratz on beating that newbie EN afterwards.
So far, I'm seeing single cards that hard-counter entire files, I'm seeing "money talks, experience walks", and "you have our sympathies. Tough luck. Those are your worst matchups."
Please shut up. You have no damn idea what you're talking about, you can easy build a free player deck that obliterates EN like a piece of ... in the hot summer sun. It's one of the most terrible match ups you could have with an EN deck and it's against a damn starter. If only you would've tried to learn just a bit more about the game, then you wouldn't have posted such a huge complaint because of one duel.
There are simply hard counters for various strategies and ENOUGH of them are easy to come by, but you don't know that yet since you are focused with complaining.
A game in which there are matchups that are 1:9 or 2:8 is one that needs drastic balancing.
I don't disagree, but they didn't avoid that for such a long time, that now it's better to just keep things this way and move on from here. Just for the sake of avoiding screw-ups.
"do we really expect freebies to have patience as the vets stomp on them"?
Do you complain like this on other sites too or do you complain on alteil only? In case you complain here, i want to know why, is it because you see a low population and you believe they are desperate enough to listen to your arguments.
As for "your opponent chose to spend money, you didn't; live with it and lose", is that honestly something you're willing to say to so many potential new players?
If it pisses them off hard enough, yes, i really would, at least to some of them. Why? Because people always start with OMG HIGH LEVEL or OMG SPENDER, i got those complaints even when i had a level 35 for free grinded account only. And often those complaints were comming from gowens that actually had and still have an advantage against that moded starter. So ya, bring them over and i tell them personally that.
You should understand this isn't a start out even game, even if all players were free. It's just like in an RPG, some players simply came here earlier and leveled and got stronger and better ... etc.
You like to talk about gowen starters and their value in folrart, tell everyone what you know about the other starters and their success rate in folrart. How does that success rate look when compared to gowen's starter? Do you know this? Do you prefer to rather make assumptions about this?
