Been in a few mono vs 3-2/other styles discussions in Line lately. I’ve left them due to the toxicity of the personalities involved.
All i can say is:
I don’t care what playstyle someone likes or which one they THINK is better
But once they start quoting things as their own that they heard from someone else, tossing in %s and stats they’ve never tracked themselves and have no clue about, and preaching opinion as fact, that’s what draws the line between good reasonable player and moron for me lol
There’s one way to say " i prefer 3-2"
Ok no biggie, whatever
Then there’s the other way of saying:
“3-2 is better than mono and has a higher success %, ask any top player and they’ll tell you the same thing, people running mono have weak decks, no skill, or are pretty new to the game”
The 2nd quote is where i go from like to dislike at a pretty rapid pace
Players figure out their own styles and what works best for them and when doing so, that preference should be discussed as just that, a preference. Too many sheeple being flocked by arrogant people in this game that feel they know all due to how much they spend, what alliance they’re in, where they’ve placed in events, because they make youtube vids, etc
Tip of the day:
To enjoy this game, figure out what works best for you and take every opinion including mine with a grain of salt and possibility that they’re speaking from personal experience and memory and not from numbers or data or any other factual standpoint
Most of the tips and information on this forum are opinions and should be seen as such
Fwiw, i actually like both styles. I was highly reluctant to give mono a fair chance for a long time because from a surface perspective it was a lottery(probably an exact quote actually in a conversation with @Snowdoggydogg) , good opening board = win, bad opening board= loss. But decided to try it out, give it a fair long term shot and will say there’s more involved than meets the eye and it requires synergy, tile skill, etc just like any other playstyle.
Even 3-2 has opening boards that are wins within the first few moves but people seem to overlook those and just frown on the ones people get with mono lol
Play how you want
Dont be a moron or a sheep
