So I wanted to do an arena run.
Usually I go through arena on Normal so I switched the difficulty and picked a team. If I don’t like my team, I retire and re-pick and if I get a loss in the first two games, I retire and restart.
I went through, I think, five different teams. Some of them were good teams, too. I had a team with Chimera. I had a team with Giant Spider and Creeping Death. Like, teams where I’d normally count on at least making it to six or seven wins. But I kept losing–and not close losses, either. My last troop would die while the other team was at full health.
And I thought, okay, well, maybe I am bad at this game. (Possible!) Or maybe this is bad luck (Possible, and a more comforting conclusion!) Or maybe I’ve been spoiled by all my big fancy cards with their fancy traits and I’ve forgotten how to deal with more equal match ups (Not only possible but likely).
Still, the whole thing was strange and embarrassing.
Then I decided… one more try. I switched the difficulty back to Hard & tried again. First team I picked I made it through eight matches without a single loss.
My initial guesses might be the right ones, but I figured I’d post a topic anyhow. Switching the difficulty flips the combo breaker so there might be something funny going on. Maybe it was a coincidence but maybe not.
