If you ever run into Ego as a location and you have sentinel in your deck...

    Just retreat.

     

    He'll just keep playing Sentinel over and over and ignore eveything else.

    (Except Ant-Man. He'll put Ant-Man on a location by himself. Just like Agatha does.)

     

    I seriously hate that location.

    I mean, there's enough randomness in the game without making an entire game random.

    If Ego comes up as a location, pretty sure it means the opponent has Agatha in the deck. I don't think it can even spawn if there is no Agatha in the game.

    It's super rare for it to ever come up, in any case.

    I took my first account up to 2200+ collection level, and I saw Ego less than 5 times total.

    No, I watched 6 Agatha games, and Ego was in none of them. Its appearance is not related to the cards in your deck. It appeared because I played Scarlet Witch. (That girl has been ruining my games lately.)

     

    I saw him last week and the opponent didn't have Agatha either. (Btw, who makes the decisions between Agatha and Ego?)

    That's a question players have been asking since beta. The answer is kind of a let down: it doesn't matter who makes decisions, because they both play cards randomly. As far as I can tell there's only one potential difference: we know for sure that Agatha prioritizes playing herself if she can, whereas I'm not sure if Ego has any preference for which cards to play (except apparently Sentinel).

    I have spoken.

    OK, fair enough. I don't even remember where I saw someone connecting Agatha and Ego as having a causal relationship. I did just look up Ego as a location and it's "Ultra rare," which fits with my experience. No need to plan moves around it or build your deck with it in mind.

    Side note - I read an interesting article from someone who is just farming boosters and new cards using Agatha and not even paying attention to his games. Just taps through the games while doing other things. And based on his comments, it seems like Agatha is MUCH more competent than Ego at playing your cards. Ego appears to be 100% random. Agatha seems to have some basic grasp of game mechanics, though.
