    I know y'all think it's a joke, but it's really not lost on anyone when the app does the same thing EVERY SINGLE TIME something happens. I made a joke last week about Hideaway 5 being a mechanic where Arena only shows you land and ramp spells. Well here we are a week later, and my Kellen the Kid deck with all the hideaway cards, hit 37 lands in ten attempts. 7 ramp cards, 3 board wipes 2 x spells and one I would call a hit. It's not like I'm only looking for wins. The problem is I noticed a pattern last week, and at EVERY SINGLE AVAILABLE OPPORTUNITY I PRESENTED ARENA, that pattern held true. This has been happening since beta. It's ******* OFFENSIVE.

    Just played 20 straight games where my opponent totally destroyed me. Each card they played was the perfect foil to each card I played. They were like a well oiled machine making quick work of a lesser obstacle.

    None of the games were fun

    I've taken 120 draws since I've taken a hand with 7 cards and 3 lands. What's up with the hand smoothing algo? Why is it that decks that play 13 lands hit curve, but mine with extra lands can't. Oh that's right, because your algorithm doesn't know it's *** from its elbow.

    How many new players in the world do you think there is? Cuz let me tell you as someone who plays commander with many people every week, all your doing is driving people away from the game. So many people come to the bar with a pile of proxies, saying they'll never spend on Magic again and it's all because of arena. I haven't played a game in a month that's gone past turn 4. Either one player is mana screwed or one player hits flawless curve and the other doesn't stand a chance. Win or lose. It takes over a minute to join games. It never used to be like that. The sad sad sad sad PATHETIC thing, is so many players, myself included, would KEEP spending money if there was ANY sort of transparency. Instead your employees gaslight the community. It's ******* disgusting.

    I seriously when you will end up rubbing one of your "whales" the wrong way that they end up using their wealth to hire a lawyer because they got taken advantage of, instead of paying you to take advantage of them. It's going to happen eventually, and it's going to be glorious. All I can hope for is wizards gets sold as Hasbro collapses.

    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 ****?

    Its absolutely mond blowing how many straight games you'll play when one player has EVERY DINGLE CARD THEY PLAY flawlessly answered by the other. It seriously feels like a choreographed dance. But the worst thing is being lied to. It's shameful. Nobody would complain if you w the just honest. But instead of being honest, wizards employees get part of the community to gaslight the rest of us. It really is disgusting.

    Just made a standard deck and played five games. All five games I had triplets on turn two, mulligans considered. In three of the games my opponent has triplets of the perfect answer to my triplets. In the other two they were dead cards in the matchup. If this is random, why has this exclusively been my experience since 2018? I win games with landslide wins because my opponent can't answer my triplets, or vice versa. One game out of fifty doesn't work out that way. **** this piece of **** program.

    Every set it's the same exact thing. Download the client to try the new set, win 30 games straight with maybe only one or two losses, log off for the evening thinking **** this deck slaps and I never hit any mana issues and nothing seemed fishy, sweet maybe they fixed arena. Log in the next day and can't get my lands to save my life. Weeks will pass and I'll have less than a twenty percent rate because I'll never hit mana. And the games I win, I steamroll. It gets so frustrating I delete the app for a month or two until the new set comes out and I try again.

    THIS time I built a deck with only commons, and guess what? Won like 90 percent of my games. Logged off. Today tried to use one of my good decks, lost now 10 out of 10 games today because I CANT HIT MY COLORS. You could MAYBE convince me this was legitimately random if the EXACT same sequence of events hasnt happened EVERY SINGLE SET since 2018.

    Here's a little story for ya:

    I went to a commander night about two weeks ago and asked all the people I talked to the same line of questions.

    1. You're playing a paper game of magic against mono black and your opponent plays sheoldred turn 4 and you respond by killing it. What is their turn 5 play?

    Every single person said they didn't have a clue.

    2. Do you play arena?

    3. If yes, apply question 1 to that.

    EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO PLAYED ARENA ANSWERED PLAY ANOTHER SHEOLDRED.

    We all know.

    Are you really just begging people to uninstall the game? I just installed for the first time in a few months and what happened? Fifteen straight games going second including five straight games where I hit 4 Farewell and 2 land in the top 15 cards of my deck. It's SO consistently bad it blows my mind how this product satisfies ANYBODY. It's literally shameful.

    How many games in paper magic has anyone hit 4 consecutive draws of the same card? I just played SIX STRAIGHT GAMES where I drew 4 consecutive Portal to Phyrexia of the top of my deck. In four of those games I also hit four consecutive Big Score. Gotta love a good shuffle!

    42 lands in my historic brawl deck. I e played 22 games today. In 20 of them, I was still searching for my fourth land on turn 8. I run opt and brainstorm etc and in ten of those games I made it to 23 cards deep in my deck before I found my fourth land. In literally ONE of those games my opponent missed flawless curve. ******** Wizards. I hope 2023 delivers you nothing but financial ruin.

    Lumovanis#92496 there are so many new players that NEED the benefit of the algorithms to win, they are the ones going first more often than not. It gives them a false sense of accomplishment, and keeps them in the game longer. (Hasbro has doubled down on the fact that they think they make more money off clueless newbie whales while lobbing up veterans as sacrifice, as opposed to providing a good, fair experience for everyone and reaping the long term profits wizards has been taking for years from us, but I digress. Hasbro wants that money now.) The people who have no problems winning without the algorithms are the folks who are constantly getting screwed by it. The worst part is, the noobs who are getting propped up by it, can't tell its even happening and will even straight up deny it meanwhile veterans see it clear as day because we know how Magic has worked for years before arena was ever a thing.

    Wow. Where do I start?

    Deleted the app for a few weeks. And it felt really good. Then Brothers War dropped. I'm a huge fan of artifact sets so I reinstalled.

    What was I met with? The SAME EXACT BS that has caused me and literally every single magic player I k owing to delete this app. BLATANT MANIPULATION.

    Yall act like we can't see it and treat us like idiots when we point it out. You have trained the dregs of the internet to gaslight people in your honor. Even Bank of America has written about your demise.

    YET YOU STILL THINK MANIPULATION IS WHAT WILL MAKE YOU MONEY.

    I've played five games since reinstalling the app. Historic Brawl. All five games, needlethorn drake in the opening hand. All five games, opponent hit perfect curve with perfect interaction and won with a top deck. These types of games happen, if you're lucky, once a year. But in arena, it's every day.

    When will you realize that your dedicated players will keep you alive, not the whales who will swim away after you've used them up?

    I just saw 36 lands in my standard deck that only has 24 in it. Somehow didn't see a single ******* Farewell which is what I was digging for. Topdecking a land then -2 Teferi 3 straight turns and all I hit was land. Then I top deck an augury, 3 lands.
    I had 16 lands on the battlefield, somehow had tucked 8 lands to the bottom of my deck and two lands in hand. Never once did I see a Witness the Future to reshuffle or a farewell, which would have won me the game on the spot. Meanwhile my opponent is stuck on two lands till turn 8 and WINS because all I drew were 3 Augurys, 3 Serum Snare, one Teferi and 19 lands. I sincerely hope you all end up in ****. **** every single person who has any input on this game violently and to death.

    I just played six games in a row where I hit Portal to Phyrexia four cards in a row. In four of those games I got four consecutive big score. #thisisshuffling

    Just had a guy unearth Cityscape Leveler 3 times. Twice from exile. Not only are YOU GUYS rigging wins and losses, but your security is SO BAD THAT HACKERS ARE DOING IT AS WELL. BE ******* BETTER.
