The actual reward system would be fine if the pairing system worked like the one from heartstone arena (Swiss-system).
Unfortunately, it’s not the case in faeria.
I enjoyed Pandora while i was climbing the ladder (it reminded me HS arena where i’m around 7 wins average per arena), but since i reached my skill level (around rank 5), 70% of my opponents are ranked god and the rest betweeen rank 10 and rank 1.
Once you’ve reached a rank who match your skill level, you will stay at an average 50% winrate, because you will directly meet players with the same skill level of you. There is no curve in the skill of your opponents like there is in a swiss system.
And this is why it’s so frustrating, someone with 50% average winrate at rank 5 (or even at rank god) will win the same rewards as someone with 50% winrate at rank 20 or 25. That’s why the reward system is terrible.
i understand you don’t want to use the swiss-system for pairing (someone with 4 wins and 1 loss will meet someone with 4 wins and 1 loss) because you want pandora to be ranked and competitive, but you can adress the issue by rewarding a win at higher rank better than a win at low rank, for example, in phamtom mode it could be like that :
5g per win while you’re ranked 25 to 21
10g per win while you’re ranked 20 to 16
15g per win while you’re ranked 15 to 11
20g per win while you’re ranked 10 to 6
25g per win while you’re ranked 5 to 1
30g per win while you’re ranked god
and in all cases : + 1 pandora coin if you reach 6 wins.
For pandora mode, you can do something like that :
in all cases :
- 1 booster
-amount of gold and memoria based on the amount of wins
-phantom coin if you reach 5 wins
-padora coin if you reach 8 wins
based on rank :
if god rank when the pandora run is finish: see the rewards table below :
if rank 5 to 1 see the rewards table below but decrase by 1 the number of wins :
if rank 10 to 6 see the rewards table below but decrase by 2 the number of wins :
if rank 15 to 11 see the rewards table below but decrase by 3 the number of wins :
if rank 20 to 16 see the rewards table below but decrase by 4 the number of wins :
if rank 25 to 21 see the rewards table below but decrase by 5 the number of wins :
rewards table :
1 wins : 1 mythic common card
2 wins : 2 mythic common card
3 wins : 3 mythic common card
4 wins : 1 mythic rare card
5 wins : 1 mythic rare card +1 mythic common card
6 wins : 1 mythic rare card +2 mythic common card
7 wins : 2 mythic rare card
8 wins : 1 mythic epic card
9 wins : 1 mythic epic card + 1 mythic rare card
10 wins : 1 mythic epic card +2 mythic rare card
11 wins : 2 mythic epic card
12 wins : 1 mythic legendary card
for example a rank 13 with 10 wins would have 2 mythic rare cards.
thanks and sorry, english is not my native language.
