Obviously the scute swarm card itself was a mistake. But that's ok, I now just minimize the game screen and walk away from the computer which seems to have solved it :)
I faced someone with an infinite combo of Scute Swarm, Elrond, and Galadriel. They say there for 20 minutes scrying and putting lands on the battlefield. I had no mana, no responses. It timed me out. It then skipped my next turn which didn't allow me to do anything and then made me concede. I had the one ring in hand I could have gotten protection, and maybe drawn a boardwipe....... one of the most frustrating experiences I've ever had in magic. because it was this game randomly punishing me for no reason
it should just be banned, this kind of cards are no fun to play… Especially in the online version. There are similar options to get multiplication of tokens, without exploiting a stupid loop like Scute Farm does (come in, Landfall implies land, how can someone get access to 200+ tockens with it without having a stupid bug that gives creature a All type, including Land, which is formerly against the rule: Land isn’t a creature type!!!). Several immature trolls have figured out it will always break the game and play it now widely in the historic format, again. This + stupid alchemy version of cards make Arena too often a pain to play, yet it’s maybe a question of generation, the young ones seems to enjoy an overly abusive and agressive internet, probably a catharsis effect in a « difficult » world. I just continue to kill time every now and then on Arena, but as soon as I figured out (after 50$) that this version of Magic was closer to a slot machine with quite predictable outcome from the opening hand « draw » thanks to this kind of cards, I also definitely stopped to put any money in it…
You need to reprogram timeout timers to NOT TRIGGER in the middle of a 200+ scute swarm stack caused by an opponent forcing me to lose a match because of a bad programming job. FIX IT NOW OR I WILL TAKE MY MONEY ELSEWHERE!!! I would encourage everyone else to do the same. THIS IS ******* ********!!! Scute swarm isn't broken, your stupid game is broken.
Scute swarm is SO broken, there are so many complaints here about this mechanic screwing both the player that uses it and the opponent. Why haven't you done anything to fix it? It's been YEARS now...
