I just saw a post in #player-guides that states that mono is the meta for this game and i would like to start an open discussion on what the meta is for this game.
Sure, mono can be effective and, if the board is right, can wipe out the enemy really fast. But that’s exactly what stops me from using mono, it’s too RNG. Only a highly skilled player would be able to turn a bad board into a win while using mono.
The writer of the article also stated that, while running mono, you can expect 1 out of 3 boards not to be in your favor. That means that someone who uses this strategy, can only get 4 oneshots in war.
I feel like this game can have several metas (every different hero setup can be considered a meta), but mono might be the least efficient.
If I take my personal favorite, a 3-2 setup, i can tell from experience that I do 5 or 6 oneshots every war and not all of those boards are heavy on the right colors. But by spreading my chances for the right tiles over 2 colors, I increase the chance that I will actually be able to kill me opponent. It may take a bit longer but, with a little patience and skill, I usually eliminate the enemy.
I am not stating that 3-2 should be the meta, but I am interested in what your favorite setup is. Why do you like it and why does it work for you? I think this can be an interesting topic where people might learn from each other and maybe even get pulled out of their comfort zone to try something different.
