As a player returning as a noob after being a noob some years ago, I have learnt more and more that this game is not about KOs. As you level up and get more competitive decks, with clan bonuses, things get harder to keep track of, and it becomes harder to KO an opponent.

Take a card like Svethlana. 2 power, 1 damage. "What use is that?", you may ask.
A more experienced player, will look beyond that and see, "Oh, her power is equal to her opponents power due to an ability."
If you're even more experienced, you'll notice that the clan bonus the Pussycats have lowers the OPPONENTS power by 2. If Svethlana isn't SoA'd or SoB'd, you have created a gap of 2 power between Svethlana and your opponent's card, making it easy to kill a 5 star card. Svethlana isn't built for lowering the opponent's health, she's built for removing a card that can take away a lot of your health.

Count by gaps, instead of what's printed on the card.
If the enemy has a card that deals 7 dmg, can heal 2 life and is given rage ( Askai ) and plays it on the first turn, that makes a total of 11 health between you and your opponent. Do you think that you can deal/heal 12 damage by winning every round after that? Because if you can't, you've lost... Unless you defeat that card, which is attack vs attack (which is determined by power, pillz and attack bonuses). This is where Svethlana would do a great job. Remember, compare like terms (Remember polynomials?). This is a game of math, probability and logic.

What hidden strength? I'm I completely missing it?

If reading an ability and understanding it is hidden strength, it's not that hidden.

Lol, yes, I noticed my mistake about 2 hours after I had logged off, but I decided to leave it be as a testament to the fact that I should have payed attention to the cards. Have your laughs, I was a noob and trying to do this from memory to test my experience in this game.

As for the idea behind this post, well, I can say that my head and heart were both in the right place, but my attention was not. Either way, I failed.

It's fine, just remember the names of those players that have 'oh a noob! i'll bash him and i will sound awesome, maybe i'll become famous!' mentality and kill them with their moronic attitude when you battle them in the future. oh sorry, remember the player id not the names, those cowards might change it.

Bashing would get you infamous.

The thing is, we aren't calling him a noob and doing it to look awesome, we pointed it out because it's rather funny getting told to pay attention to cards by *anyone* let alone a new player and he get's it wrong.

Yeh he failed, pretty funny, not worth bashing.
