    Still no 40-card minimum?

    I was excited to see the new update just now... Until I got in and saw that deck size has still not been increased to a 40-card minimum. I'm gone again until the next update. Kyle, you're really dropping the ball here. No drama intended; just honest customer feedback.

    I understand you mate. Hope this should be implemented in 1.28.

    They narrowed the GAP of player matching to +-50 over 200, and I see more than 50% 200+ players are plying deck size >=40. So you can expect some high quality games on quick game.

    We will start to phase in 40 card decks in 1.28. The first step is of course bigger class/starter decks, then having multiplayer games require 40 cards, then AI matches as well. This might be phased in over several versions to give people time to update their decks.

    Yeah I think I find more players playing 40 card decks than 30 card decks. I would say that in the majority of my quick matches, only 10% are actually 30 cards, 40% somewhere between 31 - 39 and 50% around 40+.

    I don't mind getting matched up against 30 card decks every once in a while as I can test how good my deck is. It's like playing with a handicap.

    Well, I was tempted to just insta-quit any quick match where the opponent has less than 40-cards, but I see that even if you quit as soon as you see their deck size, before making any moves, it still counts as a loss and you lose rating. So ya, I'll see you guys when 40-card minimum is implemented. Ciao!

    I play 40 cards now just to start tuninig my deck(s) for the upcoming changes. I don't mind facing 30 card decks though because it gets you practice in dealing with 40 card decks that get optimum draws.

    All the starter decks are 30 cards that needs to be fixed befor they can make a 40 cards minimum same with many of the AI decks

    They are changing it in 1.28 as 40-card minimum for PvP, but AI can still be less. AnAdolt said so in another thread that I can't find right now.
