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.
boa tarde! parem de manipular o jogo. quando eu ganho mais de 3 partidas o jogo fica zicando os terrenos ( nao vem terrenos) voces da wizards tem que rever esse problema de travarem o nosso jogo. deixem o jogo fluir ok
I absolutely **** HATE CHEATERS AND ALWAYS BEING MATCHED AGAINST ABSOLUTE no chance of winning decks. Wotc ur **** terrible corrupted company that doesnt fix mtg arena matchmaking or anythijg. I hope someone sues u or locana whips ur ***** ***** into bankruptcy. **** hate you all cheaters and havkers always giving best products to streamers and tubers. **** off(Edited by admin)
25 lands in a deck. Can't get the 4th land by 12 cards 9 of past ten games.
SetLands ratio (25/60): .4166666667 (.4) for simplicity
IF 3 lands out of 9(.33) cards is less than .4 THEN draw land.
IF 5 lands out of 9 cards(.55) cards is greater than .4 THEN draw a nonland.
Simple ******* basic (learn within 2 weeks of first class of programming) is better than the donkey **** your paid programmers come up with.
YOU CAN LITERALLY PROGRAM THIS THING TO HAVE AWESOME GAMES AFTER AWESOME GAMES BECAUSE NOONE GETS LAND****.
Instead its, oh, you have 4 losses, in a row, time to have a perfect hand while your opponent gets ******. That isnt fun for anyone.
I'll build a **** deck right now, literal ****, and it will win its first 5 out of 6 games because you want new decks from possibly new players to keep playing... You are not promoting the game, you're ******* off regulars with reasonable decks forcing landfucks. That kind of horse **** is impeding real growth and progress.
You might say "I'm sorry to ear that you have a bad game today bla bla bla". I'd say, fix your Fxxxxxg RNG. i literally did 3 draft today that i bought with gems, and it was like scripted. Every signle game i get mana ***** because, you know IT'S MAGIC. But ffs, in these 3 draft i didn't win any single game, and i'm not a ****** bronze trash player. Do us a favor since we pay to play, FIX YOUR ****** RNG which is rigged as ****
As you can tell, the UNJUSTLY given suspension on my account has been lifted. I was given the chance, through the email notice I was given, to respond and give reason as to why I believed the suspension was unduly bestowed. However, NOBODY READ IT. I waited the full two weeks to get a chance to add my issue in this forum or play Arena.
ALL I SAID was that the algorithm is certainly still rigged. And I also stated that all the people in this forum WHO ARE threatening the well-being of your staff might stop if you listened to what we have to say. I WOULD NEVER THREATEN ANYONE. I believe in peace and mutual prosperity. I am just as concerned with the safety of your staff as anyone else.
I was even agreeing that the people threatening you were doing it with extreme over reaction. I believe we could resolve our differences in opinions through conversation. Like we attempt here in this very forum. I see many many new comments on this subject from many new names of folks who also just wish to enjoy the game.
PLEASE ALLOW THE CARDS TO COME OFF THE TOP OF THE DECK RAAAAANDOOOOMLYYYY! AND STOP MATCHING DECKS BASED ON AN ALGORITHM!
For those of you who agree with this idea, stick with best of 3 matches and Brawl. You will not be affected by the algorithms as often in these formats. It's personally noticeable and equally traceable if you have a deck tracker. You W/L in these formats will be way closer to true statistics of what you've created. Stay out of skirmish matches.
I should add I run a standard 60 card deck with 26 land cards in it
Once I get going on ranked I get 3-4 games in a row without any land cards in my draws
I get 3 in hand, then for 8 turns straight no land cards drawn and I am forced to play the match with 3 lands
This is clearly rigged, I don't mind losing to my opponent but I do mind losing to rng rigged to MAKE me lose.
Can you please remove the feature that clearly stops me from drawing land cards when I am in a easily winnable position, I can legitimately predict when it is going to happen.
This isn't fun, I run 26 land cards there is ZERO MATHIMATICAL reasoning I shouldn't draw one land card in 8 turns, FOUR MATCHES IN A ROW!!!!!
FIX THIS CLEARLY RIGGED ****
I like how tons of other people are saying how rigged this game is for f2p players vs p2w players and its sadly ****** true how greedy wizards is. I tested it out for myself because i didnt believe it at first. You have WAY less of a chance to pull the lands you need at start vs if you are a buyer in the game the draws are normal. It will give opposite lands from the lands you actually need. I even made a deck with 5 islands and 15 swamps and it would start me out with things like 3 islands and no swamps almost 100% of the time. ******* pathetic company. Your game is going to die once other tcg comes and people realise how sad of a company you are. For example, Flesh and Blood and Lorcana. Piece of **** wizards. No wonder you guys never gain traction and your collectors for your pity attempt of making this game more of a collectors trading card then an actual ****** game because of greed.
Something is wrong with the shuffle algorithm, it's not truly random, I don't know how to explain it other than when I'm playing historic brawl 85 out of 100 games I have a bad mana start doesn't really matter what deck I'm using at best I only get two maybe three mana out of five turns somehow this needs to be adjusted correctly understandable bad hands happen periodically but they shouldn't be so often
Playing in standard, every match is either all lands or no lands. When I have 23 lands in my 60 card deck, have 7 on table, and then 5 more lands in a row, there are some real statistical issues. Add in that the next match, I'll draw no lands outside of my starting hand for another 6-8 turns....
There's plenty of talk and "proof" seen out there about the shuffler giving some people advantages, as silly as it sounds, it's more believable the more I play and see how the game is doing something.
I'm so tired of always playing decks that have already made it to mythic at least every other opponent. makes it unfun to play. also your draw algorithm is suspect.

I just played three different angel decks in a row. Your algorithm set me up against three decks in a row that had "destroy all creatures." That's your idea of how to defeat angel decks? That's unacceptable. Give us RANDOM opponents!
Four straight games this morning, all I needed was a board wipe. Survive till there are ten cards in my library. I have 8 board wipes. WTF is wrong with your pos software and why do not give a ****?
