To be honest i thumb down no matter what.
My winning streak "broke" and im pissed - i dont care who beat me or how uncreative that deck was.

I know i will get flamed for this, but its not like im treating anyone different, thus nobody should have a reason to complain  :-*

I indeed find this really stupid..
Thumbing down because of rage is just stupid, it has nothing to do with the game..

Well, I built as "fun" a deck I could, and it gets only thumb-downs.
Its not the system that is flawed, its the players.

5 electrum? Not enough to stop the haters from hating.

Actually even if they thumbs down they still get their 5 electrum back.

But yeah, in Bronze / Silver you'll generally get the lower tier players playing who rage when they lose. Up in Gold / Platinum its actually working quite nicely. (Assuming sorta in gold, but least for me in plat its going well.)

Instant Thumbs Down:
- Mono :fire (basic ones)
- Oraclebows (basic ones)
- Immorush
- Ghostmare
- Death rushes
- Poisonrush with SoSa
- Mono :darkness (basic ones)

Stuff like that.

Thumbs up:
- Original deckbuilding
- Fun Decks
- Strong inventive decks
Basically what he said, except I'd add Mono-Aether to the instant thumbs-down list (on the embarrassing occasions when I lose to them). Seems like it's the go-to Arena deck for newbies.

Up in Gold / Platinum its actually working quite nicely.
I'm in platinum also, but my mutation/graveyard deck(s) have so far gotten only 1 thumbs up.
The pump-up physalias were 12 wins 1 loss, and got 2 thumbs up.

I don't even care about the top ranks, I change decks almost daily. Maybe I get thumbs down because they are only fun, and not competitive enough?

I myself thumb down only the really basic fire-decks in platinum, and mono aether in bronze.

The silver and gold seem to have more variety, I've not yet thumbed down any deck there.

Problem with Mutation deck is that both the ai doesn't know how to optimally use mutation, but more importantly that players that see just about 'any' rainbow automatically assume some kind of oracle bow. And Physila poison is generally seen as "lol :death :water stall seen it". Or you threw SoSa's into the physila deck because they fit, everyone rages at SoSa's it seems.

((And I say good for me because half the people facing my deck rated it up, and I imagine most of the others just raged at the aggravating denial aspect))

Rate down:
Unoriginal rainbows which don't really use the oracle card
Decks which completely ignore the oracle card
Typical mono-fire or -aether
Other common decks like GotP-nightmare and speed poison

Rate up:
Anything I haven't seen before
Decks which use the oracle card creatively

Except when I'm playing gold league. Then I rate down everything except my own deck. :P

I think that "perma thumb down" is new tendency in platinium. :)

I think in the last week, I got less than 10% thumbs up. Which I can understand when I play SoSac, but I don't get it when I play a fun deck with Anubis, or whatever original card I got in Oracle.

Is it only me?

Nope, people seem to be really stingy with their thumbs up. I probably thumb up about a third of the decks that beat me, and that seems to be about average. Even when I ran a catapult/voodoo doll deck I got 0/5 thumbs up. :/

I ran cat-tal, fractal spark/virus with bonewall, PU life dragons, and something else that was weird this last week.  They all went between 2-7 and 6-10, and I don't think I got a single thumbs up in plat.  I dunno what to do to get a thumbs up.  And in my quest to be original I have made 1/6 what I made the week I left firestall up for 6 days.  What's the point of being quirky and losing?

And I thumbs up anything that doesn't make me sadpandaface in BL.  Which means I really only thumbs down ghostmare, firestall, and devtal.
