Most good players win 99% of their raids… If you’re losing a lot while raiding, record some videos and people will be glad to help you out.
Damn…I knew I wasn’t good, I’m a steady 80-85%, of course I don’t reroll either…
Lol, I definitely reroll… No point in fighting Guin or Ursena outside of AW. Also can’t be bothered to change team around for raids…
My post was definitely not meant for anyone who’s getting 85%+ without rerolling
I actually like facing them outside of AW…it a low pressure way of practicing different strategies against them. Its the same reason I don’t always stack strong color against the tank…practice the harder stuff.
Haha…thanks…I have played for almost 3 years…consistently get into the top 100 and made #1 a month or so back…
No, you dont win 99 percent of your raids…complete b.s…sorry, but true…
Not trying to get into an argument. Maybe 95 percent is high, but it is at least 80 percent board dictated win/lose before your first move.
Actually maybe people who cup drop and fight far inferior teams can win 99% of time. But if you are consistently trying to get to the top in the top tier, your not coming close to winning even 90 percent. More like 75 max.
Nope sorry. I don’t think I’ve lost a single raid in months. I raid with the same rainbow team every time out of laziness. I usually start around 2650 cups and do reroll vs Guin and Ursena (fighting them with rainbow sucks). If you’re getting to #1 I’m assuming you’re either using raid flasks or rerolling to get stronger opponents on purpose… that’s a different story.
If top players weren’t steamrolling raids when there’s no field aid shenanigans, all their best heroes available and rerolls they would stand no chance at ever getting 6 shots in AWs. Raids are simply way too easy compared to AW at this point.
If you’re feeling too dependent on the starting board then are you perhaps running mono?
My 7500+ raid wins tell me a different story!
Please not the manipulated board myth again.
This has been proven wrong by the PLAYERS.
Please search for the relevant thread!
Wow… let me tip my hat to you.
My aproximately 80% win rate pales compared to you.
How is your war performance ?
Well of course I reroll to get players that give me more cups in a win then if I lose. What would be the point of raiding people with less cups? Maybe I could be 90 percent or better if I raided people with less team power but what’s the point…?? The idea is to go to the top. And if you havent lost in months what is your raid streak? In 3 years my raid streak stands at 22 in a row. What are you, like 200…uh huh…
And I never would run mono as that would be ridiculously dumb. I run 3 strong color versus the tank. Only way to get to top. Currently I’m at 96th place. I guess reroll and find me and prove you win every raid.
And while were at it I’m calling b.s. on your standard cup count. 2650 cups puts you in the top 3000 or so players. If you get there you would be raided like crazy and based upon your math, you would lose 99 percent of them so that means you would have had to start above 3000 cups to be raided back to 2650 and thus you would be claiming that you are likely #1 after everytime you are done raiding…again, not possible. And weird that I have never come across you in raids seeing that you are in the level of cups area I raid 15 or so times per day
Read before posting inane comments. I didnt say anything about manipulated boards. The fact that the original board spawn dictates the outcome 90 percent of the time isn’t in question…both for good and bad boards . Oh and my 11,500 raid wins tells the accurate story.
And that was the point of the original post. I wish there was more skill based in raids versus luck of boards…both good and bad.
The only reason it went side ways is because someone claims they win 99 percent of their raids which is complete b.s. as its statistically impossible based upon the luck portion of the board colors you get.
Hmmm… I never think about the win rate… made me curious. I checked my tower for my attacks and found 22 wins and 6 defeats… my math ain’t that good, but I guess that’s between 75 to 80% wins. Last day’s raiding was average, used all flags, took all revenges and some more random targets, kept between 2500 and 2700, so I guess that percentage is pretty close to reality.
My luck was rigged this eve, 5 dead enemies from 6 raid flags. In fact this has to be some weird conspiracy.
What makes you think so? Last week I got to global #4, over 3k cups, using nothing but one red and one purple mono teams. I burned 6 flags and 3 flasks.
Ahem…why do answer on a post of mine that was meant for someone else?
That answer was meant for finaltom.
My 13,500 raid wins (longest win streak: 65) say your 11,500 raid wins are spouting nonsense. If you find that the board dictates the raid outcome for you, then you’re running too colour heavy, making you vulnerable to disadvantageous boards.
…and there we have our explanation. If you want to rely on what the boards give you for your wins and losses, stack your colours. If you want to be able to win with any board, run rainbow. You sacrifice brute power but gain consistency and maximise the chance to use a bit of skill.
Which, I think, was what you were hoping for, wasn’t it? You’re welcome.
(For what it’s worth, these days I often stack two deep against the tank. I do it because it’s fun and I’m lazy, but I recognise that this approach will result in some bad board losses, and that some of my wins will be gifted to me.)
Holy christ…does anyone read the actual board post prior to replying. My original post only states that I wish there was more skill involved. The follow on post are only to disprove what the other user stated about not losing a raid in months and winning 99 percent of the time which is complete garbage. And I disagree on your rainbow comment. Your odds are still 80 percent or so to win a board and again much of it is due to the initial board layout. And I know enough from reading previous posts on these forums to avoid interacting with you Brobb as you really believe you are the smartest person in the room and generally I dont agree with much of what you say. So I guess I will agree to disagree and move on as the original point of me posting is no longer even relevant to the discussion,
"I never would run mono, as that would be ridiculously dumb. I run 3 strong color versus the tank. Only way to get to top. "
Uh, I raid about 95% mono, and made it to #1 using 38-3900 raid teams. Very rarely will I go 3-2.
I stay firmly in diamond using a simple strategy-- go mono against the tank, never attack a team with fewer than 35 cups. That’s it. My 3900 mono team can take down a 4600 team, and usually does.
I must be ridiculously dumb, I guess. Making #1 must have been pure luck and had nothing to do with the synergies of the mono teams I used.
Indeed. But you then went on to explain that you tend to stack 3 deep, which removes some of the board-playing skill from the game and may well be the root cause of you feeling the way you do. Running rainbow would require you to rely on board-playing, not luck, thus solving your problem.
It’s absolutely your prerogative to disagree, but in this case you are wrong. A properly constructed rainbow team can handle any board - if you’re playing rainbow, losing 20% of your matches and blaming the board then you’re just making excuses.
You’re right: that’s me. I don’t know who you are, I’m afraid, but I wish you well in your future endeavours.
There are a myriad of different strategies that can be effective. Anyone who claims mono is dumb is delusional - it’s obviously hugely effective. I think there is serious skill involved in using it properly, too, although with mono I think that skill is concentrated more in team construction and less in board play.
Different strokes, as they say.
