    Maximum Deck Size for Rated Games now 120 Cards

    Adding a deck size limit for Quick Match is something we have been considering for a very long time, for various reasons, but mostly performance of the app: our game supports a huge range of devices now, and some really struggle when very large decks are played.

    Any decision on a limit is going to end up being arbitrary, so we have arbitrarily chosen 120 cards for this maximum, as three times our minimum. This gives all players clear indication of how long a game might go on and where they need to aim for if they have a late-game or mill win-condition.

    This change is now live. If you attempt to bring more than 119 plus hero to Rated quick match, you will get an error and need to trim your deck to continue.

    Please note that Unrated games have no maximum deck size, which we feel is a fair compromise for those who really want to go really really big, since you can rage-quit without penalty in unrated if you really don't fancy that match-up.

    Bummer. But not for myself. I'll miss those QM opponents with 300 cards where their deck is just a gigantic black shadow covering up their deck-size number....

    There was a certain glory in beating those chumps.

    Imagine the day when they'll make max size 40 for Moonstalker decks. No one will miss Millstalker

    I think the hate should be more properly directed at the cookie-cutter Aramia/Jericho/Threbin decks that flood QM like some air-bourne disease, pulling the same shenanigans every match....

    Millstalker is your friend. He's like a breath of fresh air. A shining symbol of hope.



    Dude, I think I went way off topic. Anyways. Good, I'm glad no more billion-card decks...

    I've played against the really large decks and liked the variety, ( but they mostly lose ) Never had the iOS slow down so disappointed to see them go. Would have liked a 200 limit, playing with large decks can be fun.
