Please remove Alchemy
Please remove Alchemy from Historic.
ALSO: Anytime I import a standard deck on Arena is automatically set on Alchemy... I HATE THAT FORMAT
each and every times I clicked to play alchemy, it was a mistake because you put that option first, stop it
Alchemy is not appealing.
People could say, well, just don't play.
but you keep that option as the main selection when we click on play.
people want to play standard... stop pushing alchemy as the main game.
you were a printed card company, dont make MTG a digital game, it was never meant to be that way!
start another digital game if you want but leave mtg the way its supposed to be... with 1 version of each card, playable on table or digital... its not normal that you can have 2 versions of the same card, just to nerf it in a pathetic way
I genuinely hope whomever decided to force alchemy into historic suffers. You pigeonhole cards into a format NO ONE LIKES TO PLAY, and disable cards that DO EXIST from the Explorer format which Is SUPPOSED TO BE CARDS THAT ARE PRINTED.
You don’t even follow your own guidelines. It’s a farce and you just keep screwing up your biggest cash cows with anti-consumer strategies that want to strangle any whale for all they’re worth, then force them to quit. You’ve done it with D&D and you’ve been doing it with MTGA ever since Alchemy released.
how is alchemy still here. ******* remove it you brain dead idiots. no one likes them that isn't already a ******** whale.
Every event for the past month has been "alchemy" inclusive! I DON'T PLAY THAT GARBAGE!!!!!! If it uses fake (not included in the actual card game that arena mocks and pretends to be) cards and mechanics, I DON'T PLAY IT PERIOD!!! Can you ship pushing your horrible product down my throat and give me a mid week magic or a limited event THAT'S NOT ALCHEMY???!!!!
P.S. fire whoever is responsible for alchemy being a thing.
Stop pushing Alchemy on everyone.
Alchemy is a weak format, not fun, and can alienate new players from the table format.
We currently have four Draft formats... Three of them are ALCHEMY. Not even with the season pass that changes, so it's HORRIBLE to get normal cards.
The only reason to play these Draft formats is to get gems and buy the season pass, because with that you gain levels and, as a reward, you can win non-Baldur's Gate boosters...
This is too horrible to keep playing...
Stop it, please!
Alchemy is trash and is not MTG. Make a separate game if you want a hearthstone experience instead of trying to sell us the same cards TWICE.
This goes for Historic Brawl as well. Get that **** out of here!
Please remove alchemy mechanics and fire the person whom thinked that "perpetualy" was a good idea. It's just unbelievable that someone coming out with that idea has a job designing anything.
I really like Alchemy in historic. If Alchemy was in a category all on its own then I probably would not play Alchemy at all. 95% of what I play is historic, having the digital only content is what makes Arena unique.
What about Jumpstart: Historic Horizons? Is that on your removal list too? Those are only for Historic... and not playable in Alchemy.
The amounts of sets Arena would have to add to give us Pioneer is still quite a lot. In time we might get there though.
Get rid of alchemy
Can you please get rid of alchemy and stop ruining our game. If you want alchemy to be a thing then make it its own thing. It is NOT Magic, the gathering. If that's to much to ask then please please please remove it from historic. Or give us Pioneer.
I can surely state that alchemy tainted Historic format. I do not understand why the decision of mixing format, this is the most stupid idea ever, it does not make the game more interesting, just annoing.
I will ask a question to the WOtC genius that allowed it: would you allow the use of specific legacy cards in modern format? or allow the use of UN- sets in any other format?
this mix and match had unbalanced the game and people like me that like the traditional card game, do not find play with alchemy cards in Historic (that change the text of the original card(blasphemy))playing actually magic, because those are not MTG cards.
if you want to introduce a new format OK
if you want to change the cards text OK
but do not mix these with existing format or "it perpetually become c!£$p"
Alchemy as a format itself isn't a problem, but the fact that Alchemy pervades Historic AND basically every event is absolutely frustrating. One of the biggest reasons I play Arena is because it is *not* Hearthstone, and this takes the very worst part of Hearthstone and shoves it in all areas of the client that I used to enjoy.
Please isolate Alchemy into its own lane and keep it out of events by default. It non-intuitively changes hidden information in ways that you cannot reasonably play around and is very much against the spirit of what makes Magic great in the first place.
If the internal answer is "we can't split Alchemy off without splintering the playerbase", then the answer should be to revert Alchemy until the playerbase is strong enough to survive it.
Players should not have to opt OUT of what is effectively a silver boarder product, Alchemy should 100% have been an opt IN feature. Please fix this as soon as possible.
Can't seem to play historic unless I use the alchemy cards. This makes historic unplayable because it becomes a constantly shifting gameplay where it was supposed to remain the same and standard was supposed to shift.
Won't be playing again till there is a concrete non-changing playstyle
Please remove Alchemy changes from Historic, then keep the two formats separate. We like historic to reflect the actual paper magic game. No need for nerfs or digital-only cards.
