I think I have a suggestion that would make everyone happy. How about alternative missions? For example instead of only one 3rd mission you would have to choose between two: an easy one and a harder one (eg: Hard - reach 5 in survivor / Easy - win 15 battles in survivor using 2 Uppers). Obviously the rewards should be given accordingly (eg: Hard -250 cl / Easy - 100)
The Survivor mission was a lot easier than I expected. At first I went to Elo Survivor but kept losing and couldn't keep a win streak lol. So I gave up on Elo Survivor and and took a Nightmare / Pussycats deck with Ambre to T2 Survivor and did much better...completed the mission.
Yay, now I have Gail Ld! Of the released Lds I still need Dudley Ld (angry at myself for not doing the missions when available the second time around ), Scott Ld, Bikini Joe Ld, and Travis Ld.
To whoever came up with the level 5 Survivor mission - that was a stupid idea.
I can't believe these people who say "Oh, that mission was no big deal." After playing for seven days, the closest I've come is four wins. The Survivor rooms are filled with high-level spoilers with demon decks that the normal person can't afford. I'm starting to really lose interest.
Have you tried playing in ELO survivor? I did the mission in 10 survivor fights (using a monogheist deck of all things) I got to 4 lost and then got to 5 in the next 5 fights. I know survivor requires a slightly different playstyle, but the difference isn't that huge. Try doing in the mission in ELO survivor if you hate fighting supercharged decks with nothing but OP 4 and 5 stars.
Still the get 5 wins in survivor is the best mission I've come across in all my LD quests
0UC-DarkEagle said "Have you tried playing in ELO survivor?"
Oh yes - and if anything my results are even worse. I tried playing a mono-Rescue deck, a mono-Nightmare, a mono-Pirana, a mixed Pussycats/Sakhrom... all nothing. My results after thirty games is as follows:
Attempt 1 - lost first match
Attempt 2 - won 3, lost
Attempt 3 - won 1, lost
Attempt 4 - Tied, lost
Attempt 5 - won 3, lost
... and so on.
There's a reason I don't play in Survivor - I just don't understand it, and NOBODY plays logically. You can't play your deck, because most of the opponents have 2HKO hands. Half the decks I encounter have poison, most have some form of damage reducer, and all of them (especially in Survivor ELO) are played by people with levels over sixty. I've given up on this mission, and I am seriously rethinking my investment of time and money in this game. (After all, if they create missions that only highly experienced players/wealthy players can achieve, then what's the point?)
