2 games. Large sample size is large. Kappa.
I've been using the solo adventures (NOT the Practice mode, btw) to level up DH to 24 so far. However I have not had any luck using that method for the last two days now. Not really a big deal since we'll have the full expansion in ~24 hours. Was nice to start the level up "ahead of time" but oh well. Looking forward to tomorrow.
They're giving you 2 free packs if you complete 30 turns (in any game modes). I don't know how this is a "slip up" and it's certainly not a bug.
I hope no one takes this the wrong way, but I'm wondering how much people are playing if their Vault is Level 11+ in one week? I feel penalized because I can't always play a lot on some days. I mean the game just came out and the decks I have vs. the decks I play against are not even close (in terms of card quality and quantity); and I imagine this will just get more lopsided as the weeks go on.
I think I reached Level 5 (or 6?) in the first week. Right now I'm at Level 6 with 1300/2000 toward Level 7.
Anyway, so far I only purchased the Starter Pack for $4.99. I'll keep trying the (mostly) F2P on my account and see how it goes.
I really appreciate people helping me out and giving me advice. Thank you. I guess I was frustrated because other people have really good decks. I don't know...maybe they just play A LOT!!!
I will definitely stick with it. Like I said, it will be difficult to add a third card game. Probably won't have time to play all three; certainly don't have the money : /
Well, some people are saying it's generous with the rewards; they're probably right. Maybe I just need to play more. I think since I've been playing Magic and Hearthstone so long AND put money into them, I expect to be able to have a competitive deck in every game I play O_o
So I want to give LoR a chance to prove itself (to me). I know some people already enjoy it. I've played quite a few matches vs. the AI to get my "feet wet". Building up XP and unlocking a few cards and some wildcards...not many though...I don't see this game, IMHO, being very generous to F2P. With that said, maybe I will get many more "Rewards" as I play more and begin to attempt to build decks.
I've looked online and any of the "good" Meta decks are not even close to being craftable for me. I don't have anywhere near the number of cards needed. So I looked up budget decks...once again, I don't have enough cards and/or wildcards to create these either = (
So I took a starter deck and updated it the best I could. Went into play mode and got absolutely destroyed. The decks I faced were MUCH better than mine and they seemed to have an answer for everything. Granted I've only played a handful of Normal games and a couple of Ranked games; but I want to keep playing and see where I can go with the game.
However, as I probably stated before, I have a lot of time and money invested in both Arena and HS (and I enjoy both games); so I really don't see Runeterra pulling me in. I won't give up on it yet though.
I apologize if this comes across as just complaining -- btw, it probably does : /
If anyone has any good websites or advice for a beginning Runeterra player with other card game experience (e.g. me...LOL), I would be happy to listen to people that probably know a lot more than I do. Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for any assistance : )
Quote From Bystekhilcar
I mean, that's not so much an opinion as a value judgment as to the amount being taken from any given game; it's based on objective facts, after all. And for the record, I would argue it's incorrect as a statement. T
Point well taken. I think my mistake was using the term "copycat" as that undoubtedly creates a sense of negativity. I understand that almost any card game created at this point will bear some resemblance to one or more of the card games that preceded it. However, while my opinion may be factually incorrect, it is still my opinion and I stand by it. For all we know, I might be the only person who played the game and felt like 'been there, done that'. Once again, this may not be the game for me; but hopefully there are many people who play it and enjoy it.
I played for a few hours today, but the game didn't do it for me. I have a lot of time and money invested into both HS and MtGA and I enjoy playing each of them for different reasons. I still wanted to try LoR to see what all the hype was about.
I've been playing Magic for 10 years in all sorts of different formats and started playing Hearthstone shortly after the Beta. In my opinion, LoR felt more like a copycat game than it's own product. I'm sure many people with disagree with that statement, and that's fine. Not all games will appeal to all people. With that said, I'm not going to delete it. I will give it another try, maybe in a few days, and see if I overlooked something about the game that would interest me.
Personally I hope the game succeeds for two reasons. Some people don't enjoy HS or Magic (or any other card game out there) and this could be the game that works for them. The other reason is to give HS and Arena a kick in the butt. I feel like they could use some competition. There have been a lot of cards games that were supposed to be the next "HS killer" and none succeeded. Don't get me wrong, I don't want HS to die or anything. However, some worthwhile competition certainly wouldn't be a bad thing to help push all three games to their full potential.
