Anomalies meta is a bust to me.
It is nice they are doing things for battlegrounds.
But this is like a new Tavern brawl every game. Neat for a day or even 3.
I hope this is an event or something like Diablo thing a few months ago.
I already do not want to play any more of it.
I’m sorry to hear this. The anomalies can be overwhelming but after you play enough you learn the hero’s that are good and the hero’s that aren’t so good with each anomaly. The anomalies force you to actively think when choosing a hero and help make the poorer hero’s really good in most cases. The sheer number of combos tossed in makes it all a bit daunting but it does get easier. I think the anomalies give players with no pass a better chance at winning than without them tbh. If you only want to start the game and look at Firestone and pick the best hero based on that then anomalies aren’t for you. If you play on mobile , like I do, you are not choosing your hero from a stats list but instead choose your hero based on the anomaly vs the hero power vs the tribes. Sometimes you have a very easy choice and sometimes it doesn’t seem that clear but the more you play the easier it gets. There is nothing to actually win in BG’s so why anyone would really care about losing is beyond me. You can concede through the track if all you want to do is collect the prizes ;the season is long enough to not have to win a single match to finish it just from quests. I play it just to get through the track and I finish about 6000-6500 just doing that. I will admit that if you don’t want a more challenging puzzle experience then anomalies won’t necessarily be your thing. I can only imagine the frustration when the mini-set hits and anomalies will force people to either adapt their play and change it up or just flat out lose. This will happen and so will just flat out winning when you get the right anomaly. The best decks will be the ones with the most consistency across all anomalies. Learning your deck will be much harder but it will also be extremely harder to just switch decks and win. Sticking with one deck and gaining consistency will be key. Don’t think of anomalies as “random tavern brawls” but instead think of them as an opportunity to think and strategize in a different way to maybe win a matchup that you might have otherwise straight up lost to. There is no penalty for losing so there is nothing to lose. The game has to do something because predictable gets predictably …..boring. I think if people approach this with an open mind they will do a lot better than they think.
