‘s a weird one. The card game itself is solid yet unexciting (at least once you’ve played it for a dozen hours), but for me (and unusually for me) that’s made up for by charming presentation. More thoughts like that can be found in my Legends Of Runeterra review, but my less outdated thoughts are: yeah, I got bored. I just had a quick go with the new Gauntlet mode, though, and I can see how it might bring me back. Every week, you get to enter a special competition where you try to win seven games without losing two in a row, in which case you get knocked out. The twist is that the rules dramatically change every week. Right now it’s just a straight up ‘see how well you can do with your favourite constructed deck’, but future plans sound more interesting.
This is part of Patch 1.4, which also brings big changes to a whole bunch of cards and introduces the new ranked season. But I’m still thinking ’bout Gauntlets.
