I know there’s a lot of talk here about diversity in PvP (or lack thereof). I’ve noticed a trend the last few days that speaks to a different kind of diversity, separate from just “I keep facing the same foes over and over”.
Maybe it’s just recall bias, but prior to about a week ago, my matches seemed to fall disproportionately into 2 broad categories:
- AI dominates me from the start due to a Devour or similar devastating effect.
- I dominate the AI from the start because of a good layout or casting a devastating effect first.
For the last few days, I’m seeing A LOT of closer matches. Sure I still have some that swing one way or the other early on but not nearly as many. I’m seeing a lot of matches that are coming down to one or two cards and are real nail-biters.
The game is really FUN right now.
