Ok, I've played a few weeks now, gotten the hang of the game...
or at least I thought so.
I mainly only play ELO, never really bothered with T1 or T2. And when I recently tried T2 for the first time, I got creamed. So I figure my ELO tactics just don't work the same in those modes.
Simply put, what is the difference between T1 and ELO really? (besides ELO banned cards, which of course I don't use)
And, besides trying to win with fewer stars, where does T2 fit in? What tactics are different in the various modes?
(NOT including Survivor--I get that)
Yeah, I think the main differences are the popularity of certain cards/clans as well as the strategies people use. Of course, you can play player-banned cards in T1 and T2 with no penalty and staff-banned cards with a moderate penalty but it seems like the player-banned cards aren't as common as one would think. I have only ever fought Caelus once in T1/T2 and I don't know if I have ever fought a Slyth or a Shakra in T1/T2.
Yes, in ELO, the points you get for the DT are exactly the same as for the other DT rooms, unfortunately you also are competing against the people in the other DT rooms and so its pretty much impossible since people play slower and more carefully in ELO and there isn't the occasional easy battle against people using their starting 8 cards + Timber.
