Bouncing Deathquark did an excellent episode on chain bidding, and since I am now more invested in learning Adaptive, I went back to listen to it. I wanted to make...
Patreon only posts are my raw thoughts, and things that can’t make a full article. Anything KeyForge related that isn’t yet fully formed.
Some of those thoughts will become full fledged articles, some will not. All full articles will be posted publicly, so most likely reading Patreon posts is a preview to later articles.
- Loss reason and win percentage
Had a thought about win percentage and the reason for my losses. I don’t have crazy 80% win rates with any decks. My top decks are pretty low, like in the 60%, even ones like Aquaoxyl, the Monk Hacker which went 5-0 in TCO, is below 60%, though that’s probably because it took me quite a while to get the hang of it. Anyway, back to the topic. I think more important than how much I lost is how I lost. There are game losses because of various reasons: – Cards came up in a bad order. – Didn’t have the tools do deal with what my opponent’s deck does. – Their cards came up in a really good order. – I could have played better. Keyforge is random, and stuff happens. Sometimes you win or lose because of luck. What I try to get a feel of is how often I lose and think I could have done better. Because after practicing with a deck 50 times, I will do better. And in a tournament setting, I will do better. I just lost to a deck because they had double lifeward and my two Hebe the Huge were locked out from clearing their triple Professor Sutterkin. That’s just a bad matchup, and that loss should not decide whether the deck I was playing is competitive or not.
- Launch day
I’m quite excited to be launching a patreon. I have no idea how this will go or where this will take us, but I have high hopes. My top priority would be to invest more time and money into developing the Obfuscation variant. With prize support funded by donations I’ll be able to offer some cool prizes for participants. I would also like to cover the costs of hosting my blog and podcast. Thank you for your support of timeshapers!
