Just putting my two pennies on this topic: is it ok to lose a match without having the chance to do anything but a first useless move?
PvP is a little broken recently, and I personally think it’s a concept fault to allow an AI driven opponent to win its match without leaving a chance to the human player ( and let’s not forget it, customer ).
I don’t know about you fellas, but personally it really doesn’t make me feel like playing one more match.
There are issues that make PvP more like a burden than something fun. Take for instance the (in)famous team
or the third trait of ugly shrimp when in first position. Not to mention life & death on which many unaknowledged words have been spent already.
it’s all right: PvP has to be more challenging, but is it ok to face a loss at the first turn without standing one single chance?
It’s not necessary to list all the empowered troops that could work in this scenario, because this would be like tossing a coin: still not enough for a game that is so beautifully strategic and differentiated.
