And to those who've broke their previous Elo records in the new climate, which decks did you use to do so?

I broke my Elo record of 1353e by scoring 1375e with this: Taljion's Slightly Lesser Targe

The best I'd managed with the more powerful variant - Taljion's Targe - was 1330e or so.

I'm curious to see if people have been doing similar and adapting previous favourite decks such as the above shift and managing to keep consissted with their previous bests or top them, or if they've shifted entirely to other clans.

I'm finding new Elo curious. Each week it seems more of a struggle from 1000-1200e, but then, once I'm on my way to 1330e it seems a little easier.

How about the rest of you?

Well the new elo is not as hard as it was before.
Getting to 1100 is a breeze with 1 or 2 losses.
Getting to 1200 is a bit harder with maybe 3-5 losses.
i havent gotten up to 1300 because i get up to about 1265 and then have a losing slump.

I broke my previous 1312 record with this: Stanly Vs. The Field

I had the same experience with the 1000-1200 games being a little tougher than the 1200-1300+ games (I am currently at 1320) as well, which is a bit curious..

There really was no huge swing in clans I saw once I passed 1200 (La Junta and Rescue were heavy throughout, as well as an abnormal amount of 1/2 and mono Ulu Watu...which is what I play).

A very good week for SoB, of which I played maybe 4-5 times so far (all Nightmare, never saw a Piranas)

Yea an unusual number of uluwatu, a bit of a challenge for my la junta but not that bad.

Short Answer: very challenging.

I just can't seem to work out the metagame between 1100 and 1200. I'm constantly bouncing between 1175 and 1120 because the field has been such a crap shoot.

Gosh ELO was a pain last week

started fine with rescue...

had a losing streak...

then I ended up with jungo (who I have never used competitively in ELO before...)

strange week...

this week I have done a little bit of ELO (as I am leaving for hols today there was little point in me trying to get a high score).

It's been a lot easier since I'm good with La junta

shame I couldn't finish the week smiley

It has always been the hardest for me untill tday... ive never been able to get past 1050 untill i read some msgs posted on my board and a couple others... for the first time i have 1090 i know it isnt much but it has gotten me very excited..
so all in all i think it has been a very difficult run for me up untill now.
im starting to have fun again and not be so upset with the game

Got to 1300 with mono Jungo. The only deck giving me consistent trouble is mono La Junta. Thormund, Emeth, Trish, and Gertrud was the scariest hand I've seen

@jojotehhead How about Emeth, Naginata, Thormund, and Jane Ramba? I've gotten some terrifying hands like that before smiley
