Before i start this ( This is just my humble opinion about Faeria over-all )
Why Rush has become a meta?
This is a question you might have asked yourself or any of the top faeria players before, Specially earlier the past 2 months since Rush meta has become way more popular than before.
The answer to this question is Very complicated.
First you need to know that this game contains more than 200 cards, And when you only see less than 20% of these cards being played in the high Level tournaments and ladder you will understand why this is unacceptable for such a game !
The true answer is that the Developers don’t offer enough, i don’t mean game content, i am pretty happy with the game content, and i don’t think new cards will actually improve the game at all, Forgive me, but take a look at the current meta, how f**ked is it ?!
new cards will even make it worse, if you have an old Cracked cup leaking on ur desk, what do u think will happen if you add new water to it? it will keep on leaking it WILL NOT FIX IT.
With that said lets go back and talk about the current shape of the game, The developers made some huge Nerfs the past 4 months, Since they dropped an unbalanced expansion they had to take some actions, which i would say was a mistake from the beginning, they had to properly test the cards before release, they killed a lot of cards, they made it unplayable, and left us with quite few options.
So here we can talk about the Meaning of the word " NERF " it means ( Balance )
it doesn’t really mean that you have make the cards unplayable, because if that’s the meaning of it, why not delete the card entirely !
Also whenever a card gets balanced you need to consider opening more options for the players.
lets say Red is so op and u’re planning on slightly Nerfing it, consider opening more fields like Blue !
So when they Nerfed almost all the meta decks we used to play, people are left with no options but to get creative and design new meta decks, while other players took the shortcut of using Rush varieties Because its easy, fast and effective.
Rush was already common in almost every meta existed, but when there’s a meta people will lean on playing the decks that will improve their performance over all, So people started using rush as a mean for pushing and getting to the highest ranks with no problems along the way, and other players started getting frustrated from losing to it.
You cant really design and test new decks when u’re just losing every game u’re playing, so everyone played rush because its just the meta right now.
Alot of players asked before about making some nerfs for Rush decks like YellowRush, and the answer was pretty weird. " Longer games make people quit " and " New players get frustrated losing to experienced players "
i don’t really think that the Game length is a problem for any of the players if they are having fun !
The other answer about the new players facing experienced players is just funny, how would a new player get matched with a decent player ?
the question is pretty simple, its either the matchmaking system is f**ked or the new player is using yrush for climbing fast gaining no game experience at all, so when he play against a strong player what do you expect to happen ?!
Simply new players need to play HARD DECKS to gain game experience to be able to win vs strong players, which is the logical thing, you don’t give him an easy access for high ranks and then not expect him to whine about getting beaten a lot !
Also don’t favor New players over older players, if you please new players the old ones will just leave, which is happening right now, you gave them an access to beat very strong players with the minimum effort, which is yRush spamming.
You need to understand why alot of players are quitting the game !
You need to figure out how to please everyone not only 1 side of the community.
You need to pay more attention about the game meta and player’s complaints and asking yourself why they are complaining !
Open new Fields, we have over 100 unusable card in this game, make it work somehow, give us more options to work with, Allow people to design new decks that can actually work, Because right now the game is just about 5 meta decks, most of it aren’t playable vs a specific list which is " YRUSH "
Make the game itself balanced, because now anyone can play the game for 1 month and be in the top 10 which f**king broken.
This message is meant for the Game Developers.
