    Only been playing for 2 days with starter cards and was just cleaning up.

    Ranking is easy when you can back out of games you know you'll lose and double down on games you know you'll win.

    You'll fly through ranked even when you're new to the game with this deck.

    Ftp 4 the win

    Do you have all the pool 1 cards?

     

    Paying money doesn't give you any advantage in this game. So there isn't much difference between a paying player and a F2P one. Paying players may have one extra card due to the season pass, and more art variants because they have the gold to buy them.

    Money does not give you any advantage only in pool 1 and 2. But in pool 3 it does.

    Too many cards in pool 3 and very slow progress in collecting them. I think there are very few people who actually have all these cards, so the money will definitely give you an edge here. Do not forget that with money you can speed up the collection progress.

    Well, you can speed it up a bit, but it slows down even for paying players, and the collector tokens make it so you can get a card if you really want it.

    Yeah, but still, you'll be in disadvantage all the way along pool 3. Hmm... maybe not all the way, it depends of how exactly the matchmaking works. If it's possible to match you with an opponent with more cards than you, then, it is a disadvantage. And I'm sure there will be these matches, especially in the mid+ pool 3, because it will be harder to find you an opponent with the same collection level/mmr/rank. So if you are spending, you can shorten this period. Anyway, I mean it's not only one seasonal card, it quite often will be way more cards than that. But, if you will be lucky or you make it work instead, then good for you. 

    P.S. And yeah, you can buy pool 3 cards that you need for tokens now, but it's not an advantage for you, because it's an advantage for everybody.  In the end there will be more refined decks now because of that. And even more, your opponents can buy pool 4 and 5 cards they want now. So in practice this will not make your life easier.

    Poeple generally don't care about getting every card. Just getting cards for the decks they want. So the Token store does even that out.

    You are matched based on collection level, and there are enough players that the matchmaking won't hickup. Unless you play at 3:00 am.

     

    Personally, I haven't paid for anything, and I don't see myself at a disadvantage. I win about as many games as I lose. A little bit more even.

    The fun part is that it doesn't really matter how much you lose. It's about strategy and how to know when to give up early instead of wasting points. Similarly, it matters to snap when you know you can win.

    I've only seen one deck that really wrecks me whatever i do, and it's the discard one with Hella. Unless they discard that particular card, it's usually a loss so i retreat in turns 5 or 6 most of the time.
