>3k current players on Steam
What happened? I didn't play for a year but I remember there were way more active players than this.
Is it even worth going back? Was looking for a card game on PC to play
>>
>>403175428

the game got really stale, stagnant metas and meme builds working for 2 weeks before getting roflstomped

net decking twinks and some other stuff too, then there was a big shitflinging even in the general and tons of people simply left

I just lost interest after the daria meme patch, it was justu unfun, now I feel like I cant' come back and play because I missed so many updates that I'm super behind in cards so unless I pay a ton I'm never getting back in the game, and since I'm already at master I will only face ultra optimized decks because no de-rank
>>

>not one good doujin
A crime against humanity.

Same, didn't play for a year. Started in Standard on a shitty Android emulator, reached Master right before RoB, stopped playing regularly shortly after TotG release.

I checked in on the meta every now and then, and DE really was the peak. People actually liked the game and other than mid Sword being somewhat overpowered and Shadow being a joke, it was very balanced with a lot of viable and diverse builds. Now whenever I pop into /svg/ every few months to ask them if it's worth getting back into, they hate the game just like Hearthstone.

Is this going to be another one of those magic games that is hugely restricted in every single way and barely lets you make your own decks and has like 1% of the cards in the game?
>>
>>403175428
A lot of people are playing on mobile and Japs don't really use steam. Still, it actually got into the top 100 top selling games on steam so it's still doing fairly well.
>>
>>403178597
Open your mouth because momma will spoonfeed you like a cute boy you are. That's Magic the Gathering, THE trading card game. Hearthstone and [your favorite TCG] can only hope it's as good as MtG. What're you looking at is the newest video version of it.

>>403176084
aw fuck are you serious? that OP is perfect.
>>
>>403175428
This expansion is a bit better than the last two (WLD, SFL), aggro doesn't exist and games actually last longer than 6 turns. But many of the same decks are still being played that have been popular for the longest times (mid-range shadow/ramp-dragon/dirt-rune) and that makes this expansions pretty boring for those that have been playing for a while.

Also stop printing storm.
>>
>>403178605
Nah, it's wizards attempt to try and capitalize with the new online craze like hearthstone and such because let's face it, MTGO is a clusterfuck for newcomers and really isn't friendly.

From what I gathered they plan on releasing as many cards as possible on that new thing.
>>
>>403175428
it's hearthstone but uglier and with half the mechanics
what did you expect?
>>
I have extensivly played all card games made humans.
MTG's gameplay isn't that great, I don't like how I can take a glance at my mulligan as see; yeah, this is a 80% loss/ Sure win, whatever.
Dated lands, high entry price, poor testing.
It's just not that much decision making, and when you have played it for years on years, there is not really many creative plays left to make.
What makes MTG great is the social aspect of playing face 2 face, I don't know why people want a streamlined(?), computer client, expect to practice.

Ehh, I'dd rather keep playing Shadowverse than MTG on my computer, because I prefer the rapid pace.

This. I only played when it first came out on steam. Also the Meta gets stale pretty quick. The Art is great though.

I wish there were more card games like mtg that had a variety of game modes instead of just basic 1v1. Like two headed giant, 3 or 4 player plus free for all or something like EDH. Those are a lot more fun.

I quit because of the rotating format thing. what's the point of playing if your favorite decks are going to get the plug pulled on them and new decks are all ungaverse crap.

Yeah. This kills every single TCG for me. I'm a very on-off type player that plays all day erry day for a few months, builds a few good complete decks, and then randomly quits for half a year or more.

It's impossible to come back when half of your cards are out of the fucking play completely.

>>403185509
Those tend to be dead after a while because new players have no reason to touch them.
>>
They fucked up the balance big time like 3 expansions in a row, pretty much bled the western base dry. Still one of the most popular card games in Japan but yeah, not the same. They nearly caught up to Hearthstone at one point.

Pretty sure KMR is a double agent of another nip company trying to kill cygames

They never give support to actually interresting and fun to play decks.
Like Discard dragon still havent got a single good card since imperial dragoon, and now its kill for real when rites is gone.
Chronos isnt enough since hes to slow and he cant set up for those delicious lucky 8dmg dragoon into dragoon into dragoon.

>>403175428

I know EXACTLY what happened. Bad bullshit balancing and unwillingness on the dev team to set power creep prevention rules. Each of the last 4 expansions had cards that would give you victory, straight from hand when play, and no matter what you did, how well your luck or deck build, they would win no matter what. You can forgive such bullshit when it happens once, then you can forgive it again when it happens twice, but four fucking times? I just walked when I reached masters and never looked back a week into Chronogenesis expansion.

>>
>>403189223

Lightning Blast = Basically wipes any thing your opponent can play, letting you attack their face directly
Echotar = Field flooding card that gives damage boosts to its summons and letting them attack right away
Spawn = Early game TKO card
Prime Dragon Keep = kills your cards while attacking your face at the same time
Dimensional Shift = Opponent gets up to 3 extra turns to do what they want while you just watch with your thumb up your ass

There's more bullshit like super power creep of older cards, ignoring the community out right, and more. The only good thing about Shadowverse is that it is free and gives you a lot of free decks just for playing.
>>
>>403175428
Back to back shit expansions. Rage of bahamut was the first step into ruin with Roach/Gobu mage ruining the meta. Then we have Tempest of the Gods introducing shit like Eachtar and Le balanced Zell/bahamut combo, then when we think things couldn't get any worse we get Alice and fucking Spawn being so broken that Cygames had no choice but to start nerfing legendaries. I don't know how this current meta is fairing since I got so pissed off with the game but if it's any worse than Spawn or or that retarded Phantom Cat deck then have fucking mercy on those players souls because I couldn't do it.
>>
>>403193439
Thankfully things have generally gotten better. Eachtar and dragon are still strong, but there's nothing nearly as bad as Spawn bullshit.
The last two expansions have been relatively low power compared to the previous ones.
But it still means another 9 months before all the garbage from WD and the previous expansions gets filtered into the unlimited shithole.

Only a retard would come back to a game with 4 bad expansions, over 9 months of fuck ups. Everyone, including me gave the game chances, plural. My patience and fucks to give are in the negative values now. My fucks to give are so low, I actually have contempt now for people that push this shit unto others and sucker them into it. Shadowverse was fun but its time has pass. Let it die with dignity.

Chronogenesis and Starforged Legends are legit good expansions. The problem is that TotG and WD were so bad that the game is still ruined after them.

They can't increase the power level on their newer sets or else the metas following will suffer, but where it is right now, there're a lot of really interesting cards that actually do legit work you can't play due to TotG and WD spillover on both formats.

Discard dragon is unironically the most cancerous and uninteractive deck in the game. The only reason why it wasn't played so often was because it's inconsistent but if you managed to play 2 dragonnewts and play altered fate into another altered fate you win by default.

>>403196207
No it isn't. Aegis has to be played on turn 9 and then can only attack you on 10. Assuming you are at full health Aegis would need 3 to 4 turns to kill you while2 dragonnewts/altered fate can kill you on turn 8 at full health.

From my personal experience it goes like this. The game released on Steam and people tired of piratewarriorstone bullshit migrated to it because you could play all the classes and lots of different decks had pretty reasonable winrates. The variety made the game fun and they gave us lots of free packs so it was everything the opposite of what we hated about HS. But then came a new expansion and decided to follow up the one deck meta shit from HS and nobody had an argument to defend it anymore. All the expansions from there on pretty much followed this trend until it died completely in the West. The game is still huge esports in Japan but here it's like just yet another CCG living the shadows of Hearthstone. Only huge fans still play shadowverse and they're mostly in /vg/ which sums up reddit and discord kids playing their "obscure" games for the epic win.

Haven, Blood and Dshit would have been broken with that card as well.

>>403193056
All of those cards were nerfed though.

>>403175428
I've played since steam launch and besides some dry point in the WLD expansion it's been very enjoyable.
Game gives you a lot of free shit to start out with, you can outright make a tier 1 meta deck on day one if you vial (dust) unnecessary stuff.

A bunch of cheap decks are very viable in Unlimited format while Rotation format requires more investment generally due to a slower, more high value card based metagame.
>>
>>403198147
Haven had a turn 9 insta win combo that has never been especially good. A turn 10 banish all enemies wouldn't be much different from a turn 6 Themis except against Shadow, and control Haven already countered Nep super hard.

Blood might've considered it as a tech, but that means it's not developing on 10 which is the whole point of running control blood over another craft. It'd only be there for specific match ups they're aiming for. The problem is that the turn 6 effect is inefficient in virtually all match ups. Haven's big problem playing control is reaching the late game and adding more on their mid-end is difficult to run. DShift would never run it, it's not a good spell boost, doesn't deal with their bad match ups, and chaining it after shift ramping means you're already losing since you aren't just winning off of shift.

It really doesn't seem like you've played any control, ever.

They still give you more stuff than any other digital card game out there. Before it seemed like they didn't even want money as new players could craft top decks without spending a dime.

The game is severely lacking in something really exciting to attract new player tough.

Is eternal having a bad time? Well that's sad but then I stopped playing magic likes since a good while all because no one wants to tackle the mana screw/flood issue even if they are in a digital environment. Also sad how things like spellweaboo who did way more than others is also dead as fuck
