There are sealed games that are simply too ugly, like the game WANTS you to lose. Never mind the regular bad luck.

But when the only enlist you get is enlist 2 heli, and the other side gets:
* Enlist 2 aa;
* Blinds for 2 air;
* Pacify air;
* Merc fighter;

Or HALF the deck purpose-made to fight your only enlist ... come on ... it's not even a contest.

(and on another game, I had to face 6 enlist + heli hero + aa hero ... and after checking all 6 sealed games I did today, I had worse cards in all of them - it just boggles the mind)

tell us what you want done about it Geral. This "problem" is obviously eating at you, so try suggesting a solution for it :)

so you used air units on a map that is hard to break with ground and your opponent has sufficient anti air defense... too bad

The solution is waiting it out, but the other day it was so incredible that I almost quit altogether.

Draft mode or something really is needed, or some kind of what where cards can't be so uneven so often, like at the very least the number of enlists always being the same for both players..

Victim, it's not about having suficient air defense. It's about getting just 1 enlist, it being enlist 2 heli, and the other guy getting a deck where HALF of it is purpose made to fight enlist 2 heli ... lol.

The Solution is so simple, i'm kinda shocked it hasn't been implemented yet.

Just increase the number of packs for sealed to 5. There is no down side to this. It massively decreases the chance of drawing unuseable cards, and gives people more chance of interesting combos.

Just do it, Devs.

All around it's the right choice. And draft would be nice in addition to this.

In that map with 0 enlist and 1 merc, I'd be done already, too.

Notice that expecting air does not mean you can face 2 helis at the same time. Only a bunch of debuffs plus cheap aa's (of which people usually only use 1) can face that right at the start.

I have a lot of games vs me that are simply not natural.

http://www.battledexgame.com/game.php?game_id=28775

He had 11 enlists+mercs (he took only 10 as he said)

Here is his game that he played with me right before Gerals. 7 Enlists/mercs.

But I still crushed him :)
