We have had ultimate decks now some months. I would like to hear peoples opinion how and if They feel that the scenario difficulty levels have changed when They have used ultimate decks Beside their normal character decks.
For me personally it feels that I now rarely have situation where I feel that there is nothing worth of card upgrades. I have not played so Many old adventure paths that I can be sure if those older scenarios feels easier at this moment than They did before. All in all at least They seems to be less swingy. It is not so much about that I get that good weapon from the deck, because there seems to be several good weapons now that can do the trick. So in that way those old scenarios seems to be a Little bit easier than before, just because the deck seems to be less svingy. So the general power level of the characters seems to have riced somewhat. Even these newer characters seems to benefit from having ultimate deck, not just the old ones that really needed that powerup. Do we need now harder scenarios? Maybe. But all in all I like what ultimate decks have done to the game. There seems to more good options, you have to leave out good cards because you just don`t have card slots to those cards! And that is good thing. You can make different build of the character and feel that all have their good points so there is more variety how to develop your own hero.
The negative thing is that chosing two deck combination instead of having only one deck has caused quite bad analyze paralyse among some of our players. Also ultimate decks have made 70% of the older cards in original decks obsolete. You just don`t use them because alternatives from ultimate decks Are just so much ”better”. This tells something about those earlier decks... al in all it has fulfilled their purpose and made those older decks playable again, though even now those newer character decks seems to be more powerfull than old with ultimates included and when the new decks Are even more powerfull with the ultimate decks the power balance between the new and old is still quite deep...
I still almost hope that we get new versions of those older 7 deck even we now have these ultimate decks but the need is not too strong as it was before ultimate decks. All in all I am personally very happy how the ultimate decks have turned out in real envinronment usage.
But I would like to hear about other people opinions. I have only replayed Seoson of lumbered tombs with uktimate decks in use. Not the older ones so comments about seasons of righteousnes and so on with ultimate vs original Are most wellcome!
