I second this. But it took a bit of stop thinking PVP and start thinking HOW to beat the team.
The last day of last week I was trashed because of exactly -OOP Hell. But I started really doing investigating and planning. I was angry, mad, posted a few annoyed posts here.
But I started really thinking of how can I build a deck that would take down Crim/Kerb/Draak/Kraken
And I DID it. (took two times but the second time slaughtered them)
This week I took everything I learned last week, like slow down...really slow down. First look over your opponent's team, top to bottom, everything you can see and think
Then go figure out whether you're going starve them, steal, strangle, or power house through.
Today my first match I spent time researching each of the other teams troop everything (background reading) and created a suck steal and strangle team.
Then execute. I learned first game that Manicore and Marilith need to both get even turns to hold the top two positions and win. I actually started favoring Marilith and I lost Manicore because he didn't have the attack needed for his last turn. Had he had one more turn before he would have taken out who took him out.
But I learned, and plotted and didn't rush the game.
And that is what happened = 5/0 all yellow team- and the last one it was so close that I almost cost my own game by almost rushing a move... (Naga Queen and 3 Scale Guards)
Yes the OPs suck, yes the RNG is still bad (20% dodge.... seriously every skull hit for one of the games...dodged on the other side) but I still able to win.
I am not even building my team for tomorrow until I see my first opponent.
