Whats this advange thing on the match-loading screen?


Blue-Custard

Recommended Posts

When the match is loading I see there's the message 'Advantage:Blue Custard'

 

 

 

What do I get as an advantage and why am I getting it? <img src="http://www.pokemontcg.com/javascripts/fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/png/confused_smile.png" alt="" />

I think it might be strictly who has more wins. I just got paired against a Psychic deck when I use Fighting, and it still said I had the advantage (and I did go on to win). It could be win/loss ratio, but the game doesn't give you a place you can see how many losses you have, so I couldn't say.

 

 

 

***Update*** It's not strictly wins, because I just faced someone with over 100 wins and I still had advantage. However, I did have type advantage (Fighting versus a Darkness deck). Maybe it's a combination of many things? I'll try to see what is different if I'm ever not the one with the "Advantage", because I haven't had that happen yet.

I'm not sure what causes it, everything i've thought of has been proved otherwize. It might come from the matchmaking rating we can't see. But either way the only thing i've noticed is that whoever does not have the advantage, gets to make the coin toss. Can anyone else confirm this?

I would wager that it is based on your ranking (which is still secret and presumably not the same as your W/L record). I doubt it has anything to do with the contents of your deck. I find that the Advantage does a pretty decent job of predicting who is going to win.

I hate to debunk another theory of how it works, but I just had advantage and made the coin toss, so that one is out the window too. However, I have noticed that I get to make it much less often when I have advantage. Another variable in that game was my initial hand had no basics, so he got to draw a card and that may have shifted the coin toss back to me?
