Some ideas based on previous gaming experiences, maybe you have an opinion on that :)

Sure, this'd be good.

Won't happen though. Wizards are massively secretive with their data, they really don't want people to know what the actual meta breakdown is. More info has been requested by MTGO players for years, and they've been flat out refused. They very rarely give out this info, only when it suits them - when there was uproar about all the mono red and the new chainwhirler they stated that mono green had a higher winrate on MTGO, without giving sample sizes or addressing how many people were playing mono red. There's zero chance they'll give out this data since it will make their mistakes glaringly obvious. Unlike a lot of companies WoTC don't own their mistakes usually, not until years later at least.

But anyway, on to more imporatant things, you gonna be playing in the Delve league? :D

Then maybe WotC needs to grow up and adjust to this century's demands.

Delve, I doubt it, I'm glad that I'm out of the treadmill for now for I have some offline games to catch up with. If you browse my profile, you see that I've done most of what there is to be done (except repetitive grinding). And then I got this Arena beta key that is enough to kill my gaming time during the week. Also, the league mechanic doesn't sound so well. I hate the quests where I need to stay in range of a slow moving pillar. Though I wish you fun and success. Which build are you going to play?

Not sure what build, will depend on the patch notes. I have a habit of choosing builds that are way too expensive and cobbling it together somehow, so I guess I'll do that. Quite enjoy low life RF, but I don't think it's been in a good place for a while now, doubt the guardain changes will help either. Maybe double strike, arc something or occultist bv at league start- want something I can rush bosses with lowish gear, think uber elder and chayula drops will be super valuable this league so it should be a fun way of avoiding all the mf mapping nonsense.

Dunno how long I'll stick around though, had my fill of the last league after 2 weeks and skipped bestiary altogether. If I enjoy the bulds I end up choosing it might have some legs, the delve mechanic sounds like it might be fun.

I never got into RF, sounds fun to just kill stuff with your aura but then it is so slow. BV appears to be the same approach: run through and everything dies passively. But then you make a BV char and it just stinks to recast BV again and again and again.

Double Strike is okay'ish, but you might well end up with Reave (again). That's what I played in one of the short league events. I missed out on Arc, but I currently don't feel like getting back into PoE. Maybe in the future.

I spent the last league to play modern clones of old favorites: D2 Whirlwind Barb and D2 Amazon. That gameplay never gets old :)

You missed nothing with Bestiary. So much wasted effort on a Pokemon system that just doesn't fit the game.
