I played my own Priestweaseldeck since ages and in wild it still has pretty good winrates and if not, its a pretty funny match. My enemies struggle hard with 2 Weasels in their deck.
But then there is the Albatros. For some reason my (highlander) enemy is drawing the Albatros in the very next or the next but one turn, leaving him with just 1 token in his deck free to do his highlanderstuff. Its 10 in the morning now and i started to play this deck nonstop since 9 yesterday evening. (Grinding gold, experimenting and tweaking on all 3 servers while im doing important stuff, is not about the win, otherwise i would be REALLY pissed.) From ALL those matches in this time period i messed a highlander deck exactly THREE! times. And i had about 70%+ highlander enemies so far. And i played the Bad Luck Albatros maaaaany times in this time period.
Im NOT playing an Albatrosdeck, im just using it as a tool. But the overkill fuckup was, when i managed to put SIX Albatros tokens into my enemies deck and AFTER that he still was able to play FIVE
And he wasnt even a Mage, he was a ROGUE! This "RNG" smells really fishy. Feels like the Tokens are drastically weighted to be drawn, Maybe thats why they called the card BAD LUCK Albatros. *shrug*
While im talking about "RNG", ALL (and i really mean ALL, not a single exception) my embiggen Druidenemies had their embiggen in their mulligan or the very first turn.
Estimated in the last hours highlander mage was the predominate enemy. Like 8 highlander rogues. 4 highlander paladins. 2 highlander hunters. Rest 70-80% questshamans, rest of that rest quest paladins (there was a wave of "new quest paladins", but not a single one won against my priest), embiggen druids, some galakrond priests, 1 "heal/otk" priest, 2 galakrond warriors. And ZERRO warlocks.
Dude mind your own business and let me decide how i bypass my creative stagnation while im composing. Next to my idlers i play some matches of solitaire, ehm hs. I shared my todays experience with a specific card in the card discussion subforum.
Get a life,play less on pc (especially this game) and all will work out also use salt thread instead making new ones.
Have a nice life
+1 for most useless reply to a thread I've seen in a while. Well played Kaiser. I could suggest you get yourself a life and stop wasting your time trolling forums
OP - are these games where you're playing one or both Albatross'? Theoretically there should be a major difference between the success rate of 1 vs 2 as that requires 1 vs 3 draws to unf*&^ the highlanderness of the deck. One strategy (as it seems you employed) is duplicating the BLA to get more disruption in the deck. Alternatively timing when you play it to most likely disrupt big plays like Reno or Dragonqueen (but of course you need to play it then kill it so it's a bit slow in that regard).
I know personally I distinctly remember every time I've been f&#$ed over, and pretty much none of the times I get a ridiculous top deck. I track a lot of stats, and I've been contemplating how I could track results of GK/Dragonqueen draws etc. It gets messy though.
There's a good chance you're applying negativity bias to the sample size. Unless you have recorded hard stats of every single game, it's likely not as bad as you remember it. I can definitely empathise with what you're saying though as I've been through it all myself.
