Matchmaking sucks! I am tired of constant mirror matches
Matchmaking in Arena is unbalanced and unfair and most of all unfun. Constant mirror matches suck! Constantly playing against the same decks regardless of opponent sucks! please do true natural random matchmaking. skill based and deck strength matchmaking sucks and isn't fun.
Matchmaking sucks! What's the point.
When I play Limited I am almost always matched up against someone playing the same colors and often the same cards (rares and mythic rares) I am. It's unfortunate that Arena is the most convenient way to play MtG because it's so awful in so many ways.
Everytime I play any match since the last update. It is always a mirror match, no matter what type of deck I play the other player have a deck that is almost exactly the same. Same color, same card, matchmaking is now broken. The amount of money you guys make on this game, and the state of disrepair it is in is ridiculous. Fix this garbage 🗑️. Communicate with the community and the player base about the roadmap. Let us know our feedback isn't just falling on deaf ears.
The game just SUCKS. It always cheats, gives you impossible matchups, and did I mention it sucks?
Agreed. I'll switch decks to change up the match but just get re-mirrored against a different deck. Feels like being trapped and creates a negative experience.
If I'm playing unranked, I'm here to have FUN first, win second.
I have trouble because after coming back I only have the basic decks, and it's impossible to win with them
our decks are most of the time matched against few very similar or identical types of decks and we can't do anything about it. there are so many other types of decks / strategies out there that we'll never be able to play against with certain decks, because the matchmaking doesn't allow it. it's not like the matched decks were the only ones that would create a "balanced" match and every other constellation would be unfair, we all know that.
it's more like the game matches you with something that couters your deck and it all comes down to drawing luck. where's the fun in that?
this only leads to more people following the meta and ultimately to most people playing the same decks / strategies.
it would be great to have a card filter option before playing a match, where you will not be matched against decks that contain the selected card(s).
Honestly, that sounds less like a matchmaking problem and more like a game design problem.
