Trump EU Legend with F2P Mage. Skill is OP

Posts: 465
Watching trump play a f2p mage he started on Friday, already at rank 5. No legs, no epics, only a couple rares. He's beating druids while they drop multiple legs and epics.

Pay to win? lol

"Clearly he is only facing new and bad players" 50% of the incomming excuses in this thread.

I've been playing since open beta, and I still don't have a lot of the cards he's using. He's dusting everything he doesn't need in order to construct a very specific deck he wants.
The average player isn't doing that. His deck is better because he's only keeping what he needs. Most players keep all cards except for triplicates, so they won't have the same for the deck building.
Trump is just showcasing the power of deckbuilding and synergy.

So you are saying that people should be able to get to rank 5 without proper deck or synergy... wow.

Just because a few people can "Win the Lottery" does not mean that everyone can "Win the Lottery".

Except it's not winning the lottery. The lottery is quite explicitly a matter of pure chance. You don't see random unknown players going free to play up to Legend rank. You only see players who are already known to be competent at the game. In spite of the people who say the game has no real skill cap, that the game is purely pay to win and based entirely on RNG, they win consistently even when they are stripped of their collections.

Are they some kind of freaky geniuses, doing things nobody else can do? Of course not. They are players who have learned to be good at the game through hard work and practice. And they are proving that the game does reward skill more than luck or money. Maybe I'll never have the skill to match them, maybe you will never have the skill to match them, but I think we owe it to ourselves to admit that what we lack is skill more than money or luck that is keeping us down.

Lottery is pure luck. He has skill, something that 95% of the whiners in this forum don't have. They're so worried that they don't have the best cards when they are so bad even with every card in the game they couldn't break rank 10.

I think you are trying to counterpoint reynad's deck. The one trump is using is even cheaper.

If you don't have those cards after this long you are doing something very wrong.

nothing impressive since we are almost in the 3rd week of the season so its even easier than normal to reach rank5(which is easy to begin with becasue of streak win).

if you would like to prove me wrong, start a fresh account on North America and see how far you can get with one single deck.

i'm not doing that because i'm a bad player. a very bad player.

You can always start doing that now.
