If i'm playing aggro, I always concede against quest priest and CW and did in previous meta too, but since I ran into them quite a bit today I changed to midrange. Priest is being played a lot at the moment, which might be due to the new changes to the basic set.
Thing is you should be beating these decks on a good draw. CW and Quest Priest can get a bad draw against aggro and lose hard. Even if you spend 3 turns to see if you can keep a board or go face I think it's worth it to play for 5 minutes.
You could have a 70% winrate but only getting about 60% because you're auto losing before you even see your first few cards.
You're not really saving that much time by auto losing. I'd like to see the numbers.
I think I have a solid 20% against res priest with face hunter, while with midrange it's a close match up, CW is quite rare, but with Dr.Boom unerfed I just don't like my chances. You are right though maybe I should see the first turns how the match plays out since there is always a small chance that they have a bad draw.
EDIT: and i despise res priest as a deck so I would just rather not play against it with anything, let alone with a deck that needs really good RNG to beat it.
Would you rather play against scam mage/rogue and think you have better chances? Maybe you're just not playing at the higher ranks, because these decks are Pure Cancer.
Hunter is decent against both, but true I only play around rank 8-5 nowadays since i know i won't grind past 5 anymore, due the sheer time investment not being worth it in this game, dunno maybe the new ranking system will motivate me to rank higher for ACTUAL rewards for those extra hours.
No you lose one star multiplier at each rank floor (Bronze 10, bronze 5, silver 10, silver 5, etc). I also see a lot of people thinking MMR affects your star multiplier; this is not true. Your multiplier is based on where you finished the previous month in that area (wild and standard remain separate).
100% not true since i was rank 20 in wild for the past year and i got 5x star bonus in wild
It’s only based off mmr because of the changeover. From here on out it’ll be based on where you place at the end of the season. I only played like 6-7 games last month but I won them all so I started with a 8 star bonus despite being only rank 17
OP, you do realize this is exactly how it's always been right? Rank 5 to legend in the old system, you did exactly this. You didn't waste time on matchups you couldn't win, you climbed faster by just playing against decks you had a good chance of winning against. That's how the races worked. It has literally never worked any other way, so why are you bringing it up now?
thank you i'm glad i wasn't the first person that thought this the second i read that post
