Even when I play a tournament and win every single match I dont get to the top. How does one get higher points so that they can make it to the top tier in the tournaments? Is there some sort of bonus for, say, using few pillz or defeating people at higher levels than yourself?
Uppers are good for tournaments. T2 Bangers aren't bad either.
You can come first with most clans, I'd go with mono Sentinal with either Hawk or Hugo (probabily Hugo) if you wanted a sentinal deck. If you want a uppers then Uppers/Ambre would be the best choice. Montana is great with Hugo so mono montana is great aswell. All stars and Uppers are a nice pair, very high in the ranks. We also have clans like Junkz that see alot of play in DTs (mainly split with uppers/sentinal) or the good old Piranas with there long lasting 25+ point games due to there pill +/- and sneaky lock/game tactics
At the end of it all its down to you, theres a nice amount of clans to choose from just pick the best for you and play as fast as you can, theres no point playing with a 'recommend' if you don't like the clan there 'recommending' you.
