I'm sure you're getting a lot of complaints about how one-sided your algorithm is not being impartial and often times screwing over players with land draws that should not be happening in a purely random sample - so my complaint can be added to that pile.
But, an idea for changing the algorithm to improve randomization would be having the program assign a number to each card remaining in a deck and pile shuffling the cards into X amount of piles (let's say 6). It can repeat this process Y amount of times then take the middle of the pile and put those cards on top. A better template would be from the card shuffler for poker sets from stores.
Fact is with my original deck I skunk all net decks without the rigging.You admin and your minions you charmed with your BS need clumps of dubs to win so I am satisfied knowing after all the times I slapped the Hass.bro d.ick out of your mouth I still would win and you need to cheat and hide behind you pop culture animations and smoother shuffler.
Not even Blizzard, RAPING WOMEN, is anywhere as DISGUSTING as this company. How the **** is this even in any way LEGAL?! IF the day ever comes and they will be sentenced to jail for this corrupt, moneygrubbing, soul-less ****, i hope they will get raped in jail as much as they raped every players wallet. Atleast Blizzard TRIES to condemn what they've done.. but noooo,, not this company. "shuffler is working as intended." Yeah.. the intention is to steal money and give no *****.
They should change it from Arena to the Mulligan Magic the Poker Game,where the best rigged hand wins and there's always great deals on pretty animations you can play with instead of playing the game.
Don't worry about luck or skill they'll pick your hand for you and if you got a master pa$$ they'll coddle you even further as Intended by Hasholes of the Coast.
I volunteer to give free baseball bat messages to all admin who made this game what it is now.
It's definitely selecting cards and opponents.
A pile shuffler dealing garbage.
It's clear advertising and graphics to entrance kids is the priority as oppose to balanced game play and a random shuffler.
Shame on Wizards
Got most the same cards 7 games in a row with either 2 mana or 5.And that includes 2 mulligans each game.
I will never play this ******* format again and I hope someone burns that office to the ground.
F.U.C.K YOU WIZARDS
Time for a mission in Renton.Can't even play anymore night as well sack their office for some fun.
Yeah my store is on the verge of bankruptcy thanks to these clowns and this ****** app.They killed this game
Same cards all the time now.The rule of 5 is sickeningly real.Within 5 will be a copy especially if they got 4 of that card in the clip.They ruined this game entirely and ruined my game store's business as well.
Thanks Wizards,you'd be great politicians.Corrupt and deceitful and greedy.
After this last update clumps of dubs of the same cards and /or lack of/too much mana is ridiculous.Such poor performance is intolerable.What was fun is just an aggravation and pathetic as the Hasholes who made it this way.
this is a joke right your gonna ask if I enjoyed a game after you NERF my deck load my hand with the one color my mana pool dosen't have .... IT ****** SAD I can 50% of the time perdict the draw from my deck THAT SHOULD BE RANDOM DRAW NO QUESTIONS ASKED however no matter how much mana you put in a deck the Algorythm is set to draw mana at 20% no matter what until the deck is so flooded with mana it levaves it no choice .... I ask you where is fair or honor when you run a deck that is 50% mana and no matter what it draws mana at 20% with a good chance that any time you keep a hand with out a color on any deck that has 3 or more you can plan on not seeing that color I mean there are people here that would return to playing the game IF you wiould just Randomize the shuffler and level the playing field .... the CHAMPIONSHIP is a ******* JOKE until you randomize the shuffler...... YES THERE WILL NEVER BE A TRUE CHAMPION TILL YOU LEVEL THE FIELD CAUSE MATHATICS THAT ARE THE BACKBONE OF DECK BUILDING DO NOT MATTER HERE >>>>> you think minecraft or WOW nerfs their platform for the new players NO IT GET IT HOW YOU LIVE
Dear mtgarena creators,
Nobody cares about any of your tournaments because you wont make it through them unless you have sank a ton of money into arena and they have deemed you worthy enough to progress. otherwise you will face the common shuffler issues of getting 10928390948 lands in a row, or the 1 (or 2) cards that are useless against the deck you are playing against in multitudes. If you manage to not get that issue, theyll either mana ********* to where theres no way of winning, or just put you against some weird deck that never climbs the ladder but its good against your deck so youll face it. and no worries, even if you do your homework and see what most people are bringing to the tournament, youll somehow manage to only face the one deck thats good against you, and multiple times. youll never play the common deck everyones playing. This app has totally ruined magic for me. Grats.
This is posted after facing 3 back to back opponents who played so dumb they couldnt beat a 5 year old with a starter deck, so what does arena do to combat it so they could get their win in? hand me a million lands, back to back to back matches. its getting ridiculous. **** even the youtubers are starting to post it in their videos to show how dumb theyve made it. just wow
For the 60 card deck........ The Rule of 5
Within every 5 cards will be another copy of a card in hand or that has been played provided one has multiple copies of it in your deck,75% of the time.
This pile shuffler will randomly pick a pile from Creatures, Instant/Sorceries, Enchant/Artifacts, Lands, and Planswalkers.That = 5 if one has all 5.If one only has 3 ( e.g. creatures,land and inst./sorc. etc.) you can do the math within accurate proximity of what will be drawn after you see the cards in hand or what has been played.
Once it has selected a pile it randomly picks from the # cards in that in particular pile.E.g. 20 creatures with 4 copies of 2 = 50% chance of drawing dubs of those cards most the time from that pile.
I get to Mythic every month for the last 3 yrs. because I can know what to expect.
There is no "shuffling" after the game starts unless someone observes certain cards,then it randomly picks cards to meet the cards effect unless observing the whole deck.
Notice when looking at the whole library for a card they are all divided into their own individual piles by the # of copies and name and not shuffled so the "shuffle" deck rule is dead when a cards states such.
Also observe cards in Graveyard and in Exile for the "within 5 card pattern".
This has all been proven before incessantly but these Hasholes of the Coast deleted all of it over the last 2 years when there was thousands of people here in the "forum" and they were p.is.sed.
I designed a deck in historic that beats every net deck for years now relying on this predication of what will be most likely drawn by the opponent as this server caters to net decks as it is familiar with their mechanics.
Without this manipulation it would be a long "boring game" like with paper or in MTGO where the shuffler is near flawless
As they have stated before,they were /are trying to manipulate this server/shuffler to avoid long boring games where noobs get smashed regardless of playing a net deck so they don't lose interest and quit.
It's not working as they expected and is out of control and they try to down play it.
Everyone has a chance to get all the cool cards all at once to get the thrill of the quick kill once in the while with the clumping of dubs without earning the experience of deck building or the symbiosis of diverse cards aside from the main cards in net deck mechanics.
In essence they dumbed it down and are milking/fleecing dumbHas.ses with pretty graphics,pets and sh.itty gameplay /performance while giving the rest of us a Cleveland Steamer as INTENDED.
Magic arena vous êtes des tricheurs et des voleurs! Pourquoi : mon deck, plusieurs (environ 5) partie sans terrain bleu alors j’en rajoute un. Les parties d’après plus que des terrains. Bande de voleur et tricheur. Et oui je ne paye pas ton jeu et je vais certainement pas le faire!
Anyone else notice that when we get near ranking up you suddenly can't draw lands worth ****. Even after mulligans you start with 2 lands and you won't draw another one. **** these developers. Not even hiding the fact that this game is absolutely rigged.
I have to agree here, I play a lot of red decks with at most 22 lands and find myself very often drawing 5-6+ lands in my first 12- 15 cards. I also feel that I'm very often running into the exact same answers from opponents on the same turns. An example of this would be when playing against a deck with the Wandering Emperor. I'd say at least 90% of the time when I see one there is a second copy coming down the next turn. I've discussed this with a friend who plays who runs into the same issues. I'd rather have no fixing and have a couple of games of getting land screwed than dealing with what's going on now.
Side note: It would be great if all players got access to the rare dual lands instead of not being able to craft multi-color decks without seriously grinding or dropping a decent amount of cash. You might feel that this would cut into your profits a bit but I'd be more likely to spend money if I didn't feel like you were making every attempt to grab it.
Bug cards are dealt in order. No shuffling. Not random. All black lands and then blue cards or vice versa. All 9f the time. It is becoming ridiculous. How stupid is your programmer?
FIX YOUR ******* GAME!!!! This mana flooding has been happening for months. WHY THE **** WONT YOU FIX THIS?!?
GAME CHEATS. YOU CAN TELL THEY PAIR YOU WITH DECKS THAT CAN EASILY BEAT YOURS. USE BOTS SO YOU GET FIRST TURN 20%, OR LESS OF THE TIME! THEY WANT YOUR MONEY AND THIS GAME UTILIZES DECPTIVE TACTICS TO CHEAT YOU! MY SUGGESTION IS TO PLAY FOR FREE AND REPORT BUGS IN YOUR MONEY/DIAMOND SPENT GAME 100% OF THE TIME AND HAVE OTHER ACCOUNTS IF THEY BAN YOUR ACCOUNT. 100% NOT A LEGIT RANDOMIZED GAME. SAD SACK OF GREEDY ACTIVISION COMPANY!
