    Damn you was definitely some competition but I know exactly what you mean. I just shaved off 5 secs plus whatever time the discrepancy is. I was trying bait out his l2 for like 10 secs in the last 5% wasn’t confident a combo and l2 would finish off

    I agree with OP.

    The moment the AI backs off from a bait and holds block, the run is easily over.

    This is something I’ve wondered about for a long time. When I watch YouTubers like KT1 and Lagacy, the AI always seems so eager to offer up specials, throwing them out constantly.

    I do what they do, I dex to bait them, but I can often go 5+ dexes where the AI just retreats and holds block, particularly for an L2.

    I know it can’t just be luck, I know these players obviously know something I don’t, but I can’t tell what they’re doing differently.

    @Shafeeq even if they allow the middle east region in the competition, I wouldn’t be able to win it. RNG is a large factor, and it will take so much time restarting. Having kids makes it impossible for me.

    It is ok dude I just said that what if...

    Obviously you have to keep yourself open but I think spacing is equally important. Those guys get it right almost every time.

    Git gud noob

    um.... are you top 10 in your region?
    No, no I am not nor am I complaining about a mobile game affecting my mental health.

    OP made the correct decision, sounds like he needs some professional help.

    Nah sometimes it just happens. That’s where luck comes into play.

    I’ve had almost perfect runs quite a few times and in the last 15% or so Health, the AI just goes full passive and doesn’t throw a special no matter how I let my block off.

    But... but... the next run could be the one!

    It is a complete RNG fest after a while. I would love to be in the Asia/Oceanic region right now though. The RNG for the top spot in the Americas is crazy.

    Burgess got shifted over to the Americas. Which means top spot is up for grabs again, I have managed to get close to 370 secs at the last 1% health before SS intercepted my backdraft intercept when I was going in for the kill. Let’s give it our best shot everyone, all the best. No regrets.

    Haha thanks.

    Honestly nothing else matters except the top 3. And man.. this challenge is a grind fest. Just going fight after fight after fight hoping that you don’t slip up throughout and the AI cooperated fully with you, while your light attacks apply bleed consistently high enough in the first 2 mins.

    Actually it’s only the top spot that matters. Top spot from each of the 3 qualifying challenges advance to semi finals. Only #1 spot has any meaning.

    I think it’s 3 from each region

    nine summoners advance to the semifinals.
    There are three qualifiers and three regions
    three times three is nine

    Awww correct forgot there’s 2 weeks left of this
  • SpideyFunkoSpideyFunko Posts: 15,231 ★★★★★
    what’s stupid is theoretically the same person could win the region all three times and no one can advance.

    That’s dumb

    That’s dumb

    There’s a note in the rules that a previous winner of a qualifier is not eligible to win the following qualifiers.

    2nd place from the americas is not going to qualify with 349, the RNG is crazy
  • Thank you for the post, OP! However, I'll be shutting this down as it got sidetracked and some folks chose to be rude rather than respectful. Please keep in mind forum rules when posting.
