    I get it. I got it then. I just hadn't experienced it on a consistent basis. I still feel that evening the playing field in the beginning is the way to go. Although things will change again when they start streamlining progress.

    The fights have def been tougher....I did go balls to wall though and just got to plat2 this morning....I figure a large percentage of people will have tons of shiny new r3-5 and 7 stars so I wanted to get the jumpand get to uru or close to it as fast as I could.....it's gonna be a slog the next few days....

    I've actually been holding off on the offers until I get my butt out of Gold, because it would be pointless to inflate my roster while I was still in roster-metric-matching hell. Once I get to Platinum, I'll decide how ham I'm going on the Summer offers.
    Makes sense. I bought one offer (750 units for like 20t2s and 12 t5b) was it a good deal?? Ehhhh....but I'm to the point where I struggle playing with any champ on my team less than 6r3....maybbbbe 6r2 so I can't keep up with cats haha... I have to average using 20+ of each every two weeks....I opened two 6 stars today....duped omega sent and got Cassie lang...not a bad day. Well good luck with whatever you end up getting.

    Surely evening the playing feed will mean more closer matches..? Contradicts your argument.

    I was talking about not vastly overpowering lower Accounts at the start of the competition. Not altering the scoring so the Matches are won by a small margin.

    Personally I’m finding this to be the smoothest climb to GC yet, but I’ve been try hard grinding this mode for 8 seasons now and typically finish Q1 or higher

    I had a guy quit out during ban phase in silver 3

    He had 16k prestige and a R5.

  • GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 36,072 ★★★★★
    I wouldn't care if they were all R5s, if you could deal with the lags in controls and the AI. Block isn't responding half the time, and the AI leaves no room to respond. Evading Strikers, refusing to Bait, responding in knee-jerk speed. Sorry, having a moment.

    I need a break from going so hard. Stuck in a rut again in G1. I think I'll focus on replenishing Units for a day or two.
    It doesn't make sense. I didn't become that bad of a Player within a Season. I don't know what it is, but the scoring isn't helping. You have AI that leaves little room to respond unless you're playing perfectly. You have so many OP Champs that 3 Bans doesn't leave room to be prepared. You have less Bonus for time now, and Unstoppable on a timer. You have Players that are running mains and alts both, that are playing well beyond their Accounts show.
    I get that it's the nature of the competition. I just think there's still room for improvement. There has to be a better experience than Match after Match going back and forth in the VT. Something is definitely different since last Season, and it's not enjoyable on my end.
    For those who are enjoying it, I'm happy for you. Clearly I'm having a hard time. It will pass. Lol.

    I've missed a few parries here and there but haven't really noticed any real input issues, mainly because I'm not that good so failed dexes and mistimed parries happen to me on the regular.

    Still cruising without really trying but once I get annoyed it's time to put it down for a while.

    Roster strength is still king in this mode. Make the other guys fight more annoying than yours.

    Same.

    He's probably trying to farm points in silver (using energy to forfeit and use elder marks to win).

    Speaking for my own roster ... Before the season started i took off suicides because it felt that suicides will be punished a lot with the new timing changes and the nodes ... I was on Silver 2 for the first 4 days ... Got fed up, turned on suicides and voila ... Diamond 3 within 24 hours lol ... But yeah ... The time change makes most matches VERY close

    I’ve had to change the way I approach fights, bg’s for me in past was smash the fight out as quickly as possible without focusing on chip damage, this season you gotta save every HP possible. I’m finding I’m winning a large percentage of matches when I end the fight with more health than opponent.
    Also I think you’ll find more people are pushing harder earlier in season to hit more alliance milestones.

    This should be the smoothest run. Lots of 13-15k in my alliance family are sailing through to Plat. Those of us at 17+k are the ones running into the grinder at Gold 1.

    You might want to wait a bit for some players to move on.

    Thanks. Honestly, it's likely my own fault. I'm adjusting to the focus being on Health and not Time. I still have some concerns about the game mode, but my own playing most definitely is a factor.

    So to me a great example of this of how much better Scorpion is as a science attacker now than he was. And thinking about when he’s likely better to use than Spot in most match ups now

    Yes, Spot and Scorpion usually go down when I use them. Mostly AA or Kingpin will take them down. I've been getting to know them for Attack. Especially Scorpion. Pre-Fights help for iBom et al.

    Well, it's been a journey but I'm at D3 now. Almost there. We'll see how long it takes me. All things considered, I'm doing better than last Season, but it's been more frustrating that's for sure.

    You are joking, right? You have been around for a long long time! There is no way your prestige is mid 13k.

    Actually, it is. 13k. I play in a casual Ally (albeit a number of people haven't been seen in a while). I'm not chasing the top. I play for enjoyment and push myself on my own time.

    So now that you are in D3, are you going to protest when you win by forfeit?

    I'm in D2, and I don't care what Tier I'm in. People manipulating the system like that is not good.

    I'm curious, I really wanna know what stage URU is, bcoz BGs end at vibranium...
    Anyway, I feel last season was tougher, due to the infamous masochism node...and I couldn't make it past Silver 1. This season however, i'm currently at Platinum 3...because the unstoppable node can be waited out. And I did give all my patience to reach here, lol.

    What's bugging me is, I saw an uncollected player in Gold 1, that had tons of 6 star R3 (how's that even possible?). I have also been matched up with accounts having R5, or an occasional 7 star in the gold tier.
    The worst part however is, sometimes the bg champ deck selection would choose my champs for me on defense or offense.

    And, this happens more often, where i've had to choose a lot of the low rated champs on my deck, while the opponent got away with choosing their highest rated consecutively, without me getting the chance to ever balance that.
