    jp's Marvel Snap (iPd)

    [August 27, 2023 08:28:10 PM]
    I stopped playing sometime over the summer. It was more of a "lets go cold turkey" situation mostly because while I was having fun with the game, I was starting to get a bit tired and needed an excuse to be able to play other things.

    The real excuse is actually "anger motivated" - I was playing on a not-so-great connection and ended up losing a few matches while playing in the special mode (whose name escapes me as I type this) where you're supposed to get a certain number of wins in a row to get the next level ticket...So, you pay a silver ticket and then play X matches to get a gold one..and so on. I never made it past the 3rd type I think, with the first ticket being free (win two matches?), the next one three and so on. I'd even spent gold bars or whatever to get a ticket in order to skip the free round. That was annoying enough that I felt sort of vindicated in quitting. So that's that.

    I might download again at some point, and I hope it's kept all my stuff, but we'll see...

    Still playing, still having fun, and I've bought 3(?) season passes - I know I skipped at least two. I've decided not to buy any more mostly to limit my spend on the game to what I think I'd spend if it was a typical boxed release (which I know it's not - but hey).

    At this point I've started to resent the competitive ladder a bit, mostly because I don't play enough to really climb and the reset feels like a real setback for me - and then you start climbing again. But, this is a mionr thing and I still have fun with the game. At this point I've got almost all the cards I want and can play a bunch of fun decks, though I mostly stick to two - a trusty Lockjaw deck I've been using from almost since I got Lockjaw and a electro/sandman ramp deck... I haven't had much luck with other "good" decks - but this might be mostly due to my not being good enough at understanding when to bail on those decks.. something I think I've got figured out pretty well with my other two regular decks.

    I generally make it to 50-60 before the reset...and I've also noticed that most of the cards I used regularly have been nerfed. It's interesting to see how often and how dramatically they change cards and I enjoy reading the notes that accompany the changes since they explain what they're going for. Usually it's "this card is never played and that sucks" or "everyone is playing that card, so that sucks too".

    Huh. This one's an odd duck on more ways than one:

    1. You don't get new cards by collecting money for lootboxes. You get new cards by upgrading your existing ones that makes you progress along a track. The upgrades are purely cosmetic.

    2. Make a deck of 10 cards, but you'll (usually) only get to use 5 or 6. The game plays in 6 turns with an automatically increasing mana source - just like hearthstone, but it's all in the locations!

    3. There are 3 locations you play cards to - and the locations have effects and the effects are revealed on turn 1, 2, and 3. The effects can be pretty significant - setting game rules, adding cards, boosting, etc. The effects are super important in making the game work successfully because they add tactical considerations. In other words, how you use the cards you have for maximum effect has a lot to do with the location effects.

    I've enjoyed it enough so far that I paid for the season pass. Only 4 weeks though - which seems a bit short and it seems impossible to climb up the ladder to get the rewards. So, I'm feeling a bit miffed by that, but we'll see. I might be wrong on the ladder bit.
