Marvel Snap’s Rickety Bridge May Be The Worst Zone But

One other week, one other new Marvel Snap location. And sadly, it’s turning into a pattern that quite a lot of these new places are simply actually annoying and dangerous. The most recent terrible Snap location is Rickety Bridge, a irritating spot that destroys playing cards quicker than an indignant child who didn’t pull something good from a dozen packs of Pokémon playing cards.

Marvel Snap, launched final yr, is a free-to-play cell card sport constructed round quick matches, small decks, and many chaos created by rotating places that randomly spawn every time you play. Each match is a bit of bit totally different due to these random zones and whereas a few of them are fundamental and boring, others are enjoyable or aggravating, including playing cards or powering up or down heroes and villains alike. After which there are the Marvel Snap zones that simply suck. Working example, the most recent location: Rickety Bridge. Oh, how I hate Rickety Bridge.

Added to the sport yesterday, this new zone is straightforward and a bastard. When a couple of card is performed on the bridge, all playing cards on either side of that zone are destroyed. Thematically, I like it. One too many individuals attempting to struggle on an previous rope bridge that may’t assist all the load and falls aside, dropping everybody to their doom is a humorous visible. But it surely’s a ache within the ass to cope with in most matches.

Now certain, there are some intelligent of us on the market who’re constructing decks round this new zone, as it should seem extra usually till tomorrow as a part of its debut, and that’s tremendous. The truth is, I’ve seen folks utilizing Deadpool, Nova, and Wolverine on the Rickety Bridge to good impact, as these are all playing cards that synergize properly with being destroyed. Deadpool will return into your deck powered-up, Wolverine will respawn elsewhere, and Nova will soup-up your whole enjoying discipline. You too can skip the Rickety Bridge headache altogether with playing cards like Armor, which prevents card destruction, Rhino, which destroys the placement earlier than it could delete you, Scarlet Witch, which might alter the placement, or Storm, which is able to briefly, however safely, allow you to play playing cards.

The primary drawback I’m operating into is that this location bundled with a few of Snap’s different annoying spots can flip matches into shit exhibits that no one needs to cope with. I’ve gotten the Rickety Bridge, Area Throne (which solely enables you to play one card), and Sanctorum zones (which prevents you from enjoying something there) in a match and at that time, the sport crawls to a halt. Conceptually having tough boards can change issues up a bit and make you flex your expertise, however the challenges themselves aren’t enjoyable. Most of the time each you and the opposite participant find yourself with a lifeless card. Worse, some gamers have discovered methods to troll on the zone:

Most people seem to hate it, though, judging from the responses on social media. And I don’t blame them. We have already got so many dangerous zones at this level, places are simply the worst and may make matches depressing or destroy common decks, that I actually would love a break from any extra being added to the sport.

I already cope with stuff like District X’s funky deck-swapping shit and Hazard Room’s annoying card destruction roulette. Don’t add extra issues that make me and different gamers grumble and slam our heads towards our cellphone screens. As a substitute, possibly new zones may very well be extra relaxed or chill. Like a napping zone the place playing cards simply unwind and nothing dangerous occurs for 2 turns. Or a boring retailer zone the place you need to pay one energy to play something there however that’s it. Not all the pieces must be so rattling annoying and imply, Marvel Snap. Geeze!

It makes me surprise if Snap wants extra impartial zones or boring zones to assist offset all of the annoying nonsense, just like the Warrior Falls (which destroys the weakest playing cards every flip, however can break simply) and Vormir (which destroys the primary card you play), added to the sport in latest months.

Wanting forward on the subsequent new zone, Collapsed Mine, which fills the board with rocks that may solely be cleared by skipping your flip, I’m truly sort of enthusiastic about it. Certain, it may be annoying, however at the very least it shakes up a match with out simply destroying all the pieces, nor does it block you from having enjoyable.
