This game has been a huge part of my life for almost a year now. I quickly fell in love with it. I shared it with friends and family. Now many if them play and it’s great to share with and help each other. I have been fortunate to have found some great friends from all over the world to play with. I’m lucky enough to be in the greatest and closest knit guild in the game. Truly they have become a second family. This game really hit the soft spot for me. It combined puzzle games and my love of Magic the Gathering. Perfect combo. I listen to boards and hear the frustrations of other players when there is some new latest and greatest unbeatable defense , and how it ruins the game and they quit. Or how those same unbeatable combos get nerfed and it ruins the game and they quit. When those things happen our guild would put our heads together and develop teams to handle it. There was always a work around for whatever defense you fought. That is the strategy of the game. Using the cards in the right combination to defeat whatever defense you were up against. Well now with this latest “upgrade” that is no longer the case. Yes the AI is now smarter…but it is also very lucky. Looping is the new enemy. Some matches I’m lucky to even see turn three before the AI is up and running and I have to just stare is disbelief as I watch my team just get devoured and looped to death. And I am powerless. Sure you can win a match or two…heaven forbid it’s in Guild Wars that you come against a Kraken or Troll team. Changes in the game are good. It brings new ideas and challenges but when the changes absolutely ruin the game what’s the point.
