Is Arena more competitive than normal this week? I've been using ~15-16 orbs a day and stuck in the 12k range. Most of my battles are between 1.3-1.5x ratios.
I did lose my 75+ streak on an unlucky Noctis Ice Flask, but I don't think that makes that big a difference (and I already had the 100 win streak trophy).
This is my first time being this highly ranked (usually I strive for sub 30k). Not planning to try and hit 3k or anything, but I'm wondering how you can get sub 3k without using lapis.
CCIE nailed it on the head.
Attack pots in the Arena this week - a LOT harder to climb the ranks. I have been facing top five teams on my list all week, have not lost yet, and cannot crack the top 6K. Feels pretty good to get 100 wins or more without fighting scrubs
For the post part, the only stat anyone (referring to the Global community in general) cares about is ATK; every other stat is irrelevant (why would anything else matter when you can 1-shot anything with enough ATK?).
So, as ATK pots were announced (late of course, lol) as this week's Arena ranking reward, the masses are going insane trying to get them.
As someone who used to place in the top 3k without lapis, you pretty much need:
22 out of 24 orbs per day @ 1.4 average ratio or higher
23 out of 24 orbs per day @ 1.35 average ratio of higher
+ At least 1, if not 2 level-ups for extra arena orbs. Even then, that doesn't guarantee needed to refresh at least once or twice on the last night of the week, based on what everyone else does.
Not playing that game anymore. Doing that will break the player's spirit **hard**. It's a unthankful, near-impossible task to achieve without adjusting your sleep patterns around this game.
Ditto. Thrown in the towel on Dark Fina, who've I've targetted for a very long time. I'm not going to bankrupt myself chasing the rainbow, as at this point in the game, there are enough 4* base units to get the job done with TMs. Bitter pill to swallow, but that's a day in the life of a gacha game. Better to horde tickets for bonus units on the next banner than to throw it all away on what will probably be nothing or little in value.
Well, the age-old trick of complaining about not drawing a 5* base is not working for me. I've taken a step back and given up completely on drawing them at this point. Glad I re-rolled for Light, or I would probably never have one. That's okay. I'm simply going to concentrate on TM's and build a good squad from the less popular 3* and 4* characters.
And pull from time to time. However, I am done chasing rainbow crystals - it NEVER works out for me.
