O: 3-2 (15-5)
D: 0-0 (7-0)
Things went well until I started running into Russian hackers players who clearly saw the superiority of my defense and decided to just plagiarize me. To wit:
As I correctly predicted, Nordri is probably one of the best tanks for this week especially if running a blue heavy/mono blue defense. Slash attacks hurt like hell, and Chick Jr basically just one shot my whole team lol.
The first loss occurred on the 4th match so I had to buy back in, but even after paying the 75 gem extortion fee, SG still wanted to punish me some more and gave me the second team which I also lost against. Thankfully neither were BFZs as I did manage to knock out two in each match, but yeah not fun.
O: 5-0?! (20-5)
D: 0-0 (7-0)
Wow what a change from yesterday. Thought I’d get absolutely massacred today, but no not only did I not face any teams with Nordri tanks, the only blue tanks I even faced today was LB Frosty and Gunnar+20. Frosty was basically of no threat whatsoever, and the match against Gunnar+20, I got 7 blue tiles in two moves with my mono blue team, so defense stood absolutely no chance.
Went mono blue for 4/5 matches, only switching to the 4-1 purple team for an autofill with Kvasir wing and Gan Ju flank (still +100 team though so no joke). The boards for my mono blue ranged from “dream board” to "@#$! ), but miraculously for the ones with terrible openings, about 3-4 moves in, I set a huge on-color cascade with like 7-8 tiles in the shape of a “Z” diamond if that makes sense, tiled out the tank, severely wounded the flank, charged up everybody on my team, then cGunnar-Nordri-Chick x2 just blasted everybody into oblivion. Thank you RNGesus (but this probably means I’ll get tall boost/scabard and 3 silver tokens and 4 small aethers for loot )
Firmly in top 1%.
