I just lost a PvP match (my first after the reset), and I’ve never seen the likes of it. I’m level 256 or so, and my opponent was 108. So instead of using my Forest Faeries (Gloomleaf/Dryad/Treant/Green Seer), I figured I could soul farm with Skeleton/Slime/Valkyrie/Bone Dragon (ripped from someone, I forget who). I don’t typically soul farm until I reach Champion because my soul farming team is a bit frail (almost none above 15, and very little kingdom bonuses for health/armor), but against a level 108 player, I felt confident. The team was Kerberos, I think a Goblin, Summoner at the back, and Hero with a yellow staff that does randomly split damage (I really wasn’t paying attention because I wasn’t worried AT ALL). No buffs, regular stats, this would be a piece of cake.
Not. I didn’t get a single kill. The starting board gave me a skull match (yay!), which then set them up for several extra turns, including mana surges (in no way predictable, by the way). No big deal; I’ll come back. Start powering my Valkyrie, they keep getting lucky droops, eventually get my Skeleton down to 2 health with lucky skull drops. All is not lost; I have a Bone Dragon after all. Unfortunately, right about the time I get the Valkyrie powered up, Kerberos gets powered and devours her. I get my Skeleton powered, Hero uses staff and Skeleton goes down. I have a Slime with maybe 6 mana and a Bone Dragon with only 3. Start trying to power the Slime; Kerberos gets a lucky skull match and with his boosted attack wipes me out. Then he gets lucky and hits my Bone Dragon, putting him down to 5 health before I can get him above 10 mana. I try to get powered up and avoid skull setups, but of course it was in vain and they eventually get lucky extra turns into setting up their own skulls, and down I go.
Give me a break. I’m playing on Hard, so they’re allowed to get stupid lucky, but seriously? From the minute I started playing the luck was completely one-sided, apart from that starting skull match. I never got even one 4/5 match the whole time, and no kills, so I didn’t get any money or souls. Not even a random key. I don’t think I’ve seen a match go so one-sided since I started playing.
