You're just hanging there with your girlfriend and this guy slaps her ass
What do you do?
i still think that player made choices matter more in artifact than in hex or mtga for example.
in hex / mtga it all comes down to the starting hand and the draws, if you draw good the plays are often premade before thinking, in artifact you have to consider all your decisions a bit more, and yes heroes are important, but you can outplay a poor player easier in artifact than in hex / magic.
note: i only talk about draft - i have no clue about constructed ;)...
artifact is my favorite tcg/ccg/game overall atm, but lets see how it evolves with the next 1-2 sets and with ladder and stuff.
