    [–] I gathered some statistics from constructed ladder and after 200 games here are the results. mertcanhekim 0 points ago in MagicArena

    I think the data would be much more useful if it covered post-RNA only. Mixing the data of two vastly different metas doesn't make any sense.

    [–] On my previous post, I was told to step up my meme game so I made this video. What do you think? mertcanhekim 1 points ago in MagicArena

    I actually did something very similar in the previous video. But some people considered it to be targeting the developers so I had to change it.

    Bo3 meta is much healthier as expected

    [–] I'm about to start my first 5.000g draft - can you help me to clear a few uncertainties? mertcanhekim 1 points ago in MagicArena

    How hard will I get pummeled on a scale from "not even a scratch" to "why did I leave Hearthstone" ?

    When you do your first draft, you'll start from the bronze 4 rank, the lowest possible place available, and then you'll play against other bronze players. So don't feel intimidated.

    That's because most people misuse pings. Like when I'm trying to run away from 3 people they ping me to retreat. Yeah, no shit, Sherlock. I don't need you to spam that annoying noise when I'm trying to focus.

    compared to the amount of decisions you have to make playing control or combo RDW was simplistic.

    I was not comparing RDW with other decks. I was comparing the old RDW with the new one.

    [–] Degrees of Mono-Red Burn mertcanhekim 80 points ago in MagicArena

    I really liked the previous iteration of mono-red so much that I played 2000 games with it. You had to carefully calculate and choose between burning your opponent and their creatures. The wrong choice would likely cost you the game.

    In this one, you just mindlessly throw everything to the face. I'm getting sick of it already.

    I've upgraded my meme. How do you like this one?

    [–] On my previous post, I was told to step up my meme game so I made this video. What do you think? mertcanhekim 11 points ago in MagicArena

    I think the constructed events are still worth it for most players. An average player with 50% winrate gets 0,44 rares/mythics per event. While that number is low, if you do an event everyday, the rares will add up. But the problem is, it is very frustrating when you play 2-3 events and grind hours of your time to get a rare and then seeing it turn into 20 gems. That's when the event is not worth playing.

    The ICR reduction would be completely reasonable and understandable if duplicate protection also applied to ICRs. In its current form, it is punishing for people who have high collection progress.

    [–] New patch mertcanhekim 2 points ago in MagicArena

    Depends on your winrate. If you are doing 50%, you'll lose 90 gold per event and it becomes very inefficient. If you are above 56%, you are going infinite and the event is awarding for you.

    [–] New patch mertcanhekim 3 points ago in MagicArena

    Yes. The announcement is here

    I did the math and found out the average player (50% winrate) lost half their ICRs:

    Traditional Constructed

    Old reward: 1,45 rares/mythics per event

    New reward: 0,63 rares/mythics per event

    Constructed Event

    Old reward: 0,87 rares/mythics per event

    New reward: 0,44 rares/mythics per event

    [–] New patch mertcanhekim 6 points ago in MagicArena

    You get 20 gems, that's correct, but it's not worth a rare. It's like replacing a rare ICR with 100 gold. And during the previous patch, when they attempted to replace Constructed Event ICRs with 100 gold, the whole Reddit was up in arms.

    [–] New patch mertcanhekim 2 points ago in MagicArena

    I added them for simplicity. Sorry if I mislead you

    [–] New patch mertcanhekim 1 points ago in MagicArena

    I agree. The main problem is not the ICR nerf but the lack of duplicate protection. This makes the Constructed Events pointless for players with high collection progress and hurt paying players in particular.

    [–] New patch mertcanhekim 6 points ago in MagicArena

    The costructed events now give half the ICRs they used to reward

    [–] New patch mertcanhekim 3 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago) in MagicArena

    My numbers are the same. The difference is I added rares and mythics and presented them together

    [–] New patch mertcanhekim 9 points ago in MagicArena

    Didn't occur to me. Now I regret it.
