Untamable / Winter is Here
Huge respect to those who ended in L IV last PVP season
Don't Mention the Nautilus!
This event was a breath of fresh air, it was different, it required strategy and team work.
I believe this event is less about strategy than many think. It's about monster rosters and putting them to use effectively. Most teams at a decent level can do that, so most of the time the team with the biggest arsenal of monsters AND the willingness to rune them up will win.
Strategy will only be a deciding factor if both teams are really equally matched and equally motivated.
Getting a diamond relic for the highest ranking was very motivating for those of us who don't spend crazy amounts gambling on relic chests.
But now we are getting 1500 medal currency while a diamond relic chest costs 5000 in team shop.
For me what was unacceptable is the gem sinkhole the event was in the beginning. The team willing to spend most gems would win. Now that the costs are gone, except for expanding your monster roster which everyone already was doing anyway, it's not illogical that the rewards went down as well. Admittedly a bit too much down though. Last event I spent 2 + hours attacking, after a lot of preparatory work as well.
So we went from a diamond relic chest to less than 1/3 of its cost and also gone are the talany cells, while also making the event harder by not allowing using attack monsters except once.
You want to go back to the gem sinkhole of recovering monsters?
I am perfectly fine with only using a monster once.
But what has become so frustrating about it are these silly war rules, honestly we are having more "special rules" than normal rules, when something becomes too frequent, it stops being "SPECIAL".
Agree with that.
Glad we finally got the winter book, but not glad it was with another replica of it "polar", and an epic rule, for 3 consecutive wars!!! It felt like, hey you wanted the winter book? here choke on it
3 consecutive wars with the same rules is too much indeed.
Will actually reward players who play PVP, not the ones who sit behind their desk with their feet on the table and play 2 fights at the end of the season.
Can do this the hard way, too, if necessary
Yes, I saw that you were working for it this time from my defence log.
L IV was 5500 - ca 5950 trophies at the end of the season.
So I guess the adaptations were successful.
I would like to see them disabled for battlegrounds.
Getting occassionally wiped by specials, or experiencing many misses, is normal when playing many, and often longer, battles with unusal monsters. It's part of what makes TBGR exciting.
Please do NOT remove specials. I do not need a lollipop for my efforts. I want to feel I actually can lose, even against the most unlikely teams, otherwise there will be no excitement.
. Also, a great option to take into account, another suggestion would be for next BG that Leads and Co-leads being able to remove defenses, that'll help to solve issues when a player doesn't follow the team's strategy or place defenses as he pleases.
Exactly this. I suggested it after the first edition already. This time we had one egotistical buphole, or a kid who does not know any better, fill up one of our front grounds with useless trash. Cannot remove those defences and cannot kick the player before the end of Battlegrounds.
This is an incident in a team that is not very organised, but at least with players that mostly communicate about the most important stuff. I do not want to imagine how bad these things can be in even less communicative teams.
Other than that, I am enjoying this edition. Spent a few hours playing with unusual monsters and monster combinations, so I am good.
On my second account I bred Alvid. Even spent gems to throw her in the hatchery in time, but no Key or Cells. Wrote to support but of course they did not reply before the weekend. So I guess this is a lost case.
One of my teammates had the same issue and was just told 'sorry, nothing we can do.'
I mean, really.
... also, Polar Book - we already have a Winter Book, how unimaginative! A Christmas Book with all the rubbish monsters like Pandaclause, Flirty, etc. could have been interesting as then everyone would have had to play with the same Lvl 100 gold cows
Show some respect, my Panda Claus and Son Cookie are rank 1 TBGR killers.
got an issue , i've been using 3 times in current war my xiron the ruby and everytime i used ruby explosion she fails to put any control effect on the enemy team , just ignite and shows miss miss miss on them ( ..and i have been using elite sea troops on her so there's precision there too ) ...is this normal ? @Carlos
Under precision boost (like EST), it's almost impossible to miss even on Bulwark trait. Unless your opponents are all immune to control.
Bulwark monsters still resist 25% of the effects that land on them with precision.
