Quote from Henrick »At this point I have no doubt that Arena is rigged to help some players have wins.
- If people don't win, they won't play. If they don't play, there is no chance of making money with Arena. -
Here are 3 game examples that happened to me THIS week...
I Mulligan twice to get two colors of land or duals etc. (ok, fine, this could happen)
Next it takes me 5 draws to get a land (I started with 2 land. Ok, this could happen.)
He has a Bloodthirsty Aerielist dealing damage. It is the ONLY WAY he can win the game at this point.
I have 2 enchantments that give creatures Riot.
I cast a Snarespinner which has Reach and when Riot is supposed to activate to give my choice of +1/+1 or Haste, it skips this and goes straight to combat phase. So no Riot. Opponent then wins the game because it was critical that I have those counters to kill his Aerielist.
The other player's Vraska didn't require them to sacrifice a permanent to draw a card... twice in one game. Fun.
Playing the instant Joust suddenly doesn't recognize that my Knight has First Strike.
Honestly I'm kind of sick of this crap. I want my money back.

Given the general ignorance of Henrick's complaints, a blightbeetle or something similar on the battlefield that he did not consider seems more likely than an actual bug...
