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?
I have never been so frustrated with Elo as I have been this week, struggling to make 1180, and dropping down to 1120 once I get near 1200. Normally 1200 is easy.
Every deck I try usually lands me one or two wins and then 4-5 losses in a row, I'm just not sure what to try any more.
One of those weeks, I guess :P As someone said before, this change has forced a change in clan usage, and it's thrown people out of their comfort zone, facing new opponents. I guess some of us had just got comfortable using the "powerful" cards, and aren't as adaptable as we thought :P
Ran a Jungo-Pussycats deck this week and scored almost 50 points higher then usually, i'm at 1401 right now and hoping to stay in the top 100... it's been easier for me just because I absolutely hated Rolph and seemed to run into him every single match previously
