Do people like dueling?

Postby Ancestral Armor » Mon May 25, 2015 4:15 pm

It seems like they are doing a lot with dueling and not really focusing on anything else and I am wondering if people actually like dueling. I personal don't really like it.

I would say the majority of the Crane player base has positive feelings for dueling.

I definitely like dueling. It's an iconic theme for the Crane in both the RPG and the CCG. It's not always the best deck, but it can usually at least be usable. It was my best deck back when I played during Gold, and I still usually keep a dueling deck around even if I wouldn't take it to a Kotei. I think dueling is a fun and flavorful deck style.

I don't know many Crane players who don't like duelling. I loved it when it was good (Celestial). Since then, it hasn't been very good at all. This Arc it's pretty terrible, probably precisely because too many CLans have the option, which makes it a too unreliable strategy for deck building, at least for defensive honor. I hear that one of the good Spider military decks duels quite well. Scorpion ninja is pretty nasty too in that regard.

Crane players traditionally like dueling. As do other dueling clans (which is mainly Dragon and not much else). Everyone else in my experience hates it. Which is why I'm glad they're putting dueling across the board and not leaving it as a niche thing for 1 clan. Let's see everyone else complaining about the op-ness of the mechanic when they're also using it. :P

I like dueling it is one of my favorite parts of both the CCG and RPG.

I do not think that 5 clans with explicit dueling themes is bad for dueling. So many dueling decks should be good for dueling as more players are willing to focus, the problem comes in that all but one of the 4FV cards currently legal in 20F with Focus Effects are win more or lose less.

I personally like other things (courtier honor, magistrates) more than dueling. But I respect dueling as a part of Crane identity.
Main problem probably is, that I am not able to create good dueling deck, Don't know why :oops: .

I love dueling, if it weren't for dueling I would play another clan.

It is the most enjoyable aspect of the game for me and the reason I chose Crane.

I, also, like Dueling.

The reason it's thought to be bad right now is because of the mirror match - what do you do when you face an opponent with chi and focus values as good as yours?
