Why No Announcement on the Fear Change?
« on: November 22, 2016, 08:01:46 AM »
It's a pretty commonly played card across all formats. Why isn't there a message anywhere about it? I get that it was mentioned in global chat, but that hardly helps when people log on AFTER someone mentioned it. Changes to cards that directly impact the major meta of this game (and this is one such change) should be much easier to see for everyone who plays the game.

Unannounced patches & game changes are very poor form for any game - let alone an online CCG.

The announcement was when you go to play a game and wonder why half your decks are illegal.

This is completely unacceptable. Why are balance changes not being announced in patch notes with reasoning therein?

Don't worry I got your back. Fear changed from 1 purity to 2 purity.

Thanks bruh,

On a related note, i've seen a lot of polemic on the forum concerning Fear and it being OP at 1 purity. I hope it'll encourage more 2purity Sl decks because i havent seen any in a long time.

RIP Feartrops.

Let me just give my 2 cents here. I know nothing's gonna change and I should just accept and enjoy the game as it is, but there's 2 things about this game that really bother me and one of them is exactly this.

I know fear is the enabler of strong and rather unfair decks and combos, because of how hard it is to interact with, I'm talking siphoner, mill, caltrops, undead knight guy (or whatever his name was). But it was also a card that created momentum, made for flashy wombo combos, gave decks an identity and has been one of the staples of infinity wars history for years!

I know there's a huge outcry from the player base to bring down so called toxic strategies like mill, burn, morale, rush, etc. But there's also players who like to put their skill to the test and play with and against cards and combos that have high impact on the game and getting punished for it. Just because you can't interact with something like fear, calamity or the old shikana, it doesn't mean you can't anticipate on it and do something with it and if you can't, I honestly feel like you deserve to lose to it. I know, unpopular opinion right? But let me tell you, I'd rather lose to a fear, than getting outscaled by some beefy midrange deck.

I feel like if a card needs to be changed, it should be done in timely manner and not months-years after release. At that point they should either print an answer to it (idk a card with an effect similar to gao han?) or just release more cards more often and have it rotate out already.

I know everybody's gonna disagree, but I feel like this game just continues to get dumbed down.
