I suppose early days of the week are bad because most of the people have low scores, so you will usually only sum 8 points per victory and lose about 20 per defeat. I have also heard that Saturday and Sunday are specially hard as there are lot of people with free time to play.
What does your experience say?
Sunday=worst day...people cram like hell to get to 1300 at least so youll be facing the best possible decks for that week
Early days= pretty bad cause it means once youve racked up the score you have to play each day to keep it there=more chance to lose....also random decks come up which is fairly annoying
best days IMO= Thurs-Sat but it will still be an uphill battle
Just get to 1250 or so on wed then u can slog it for 3 days
I would say friday, in the weekend there is more competition, players really try their best with the decks they found to be most powerful.
In the first days a lot of players are testing or just not playing to their maximum capacity so it is a little easier.
I usually try to get to 1300 until Wednesday, 1350 Thursday, and 1400+ friday... but last 2 Weeks it didn't happen.
Yesterday (sunday) I got to 1394 but I dropped to 1356. Although I had a streak of 14 games without loss, it's pretty tough on Sunday.
The only one time I scored 1445 (32nd) was on Sunday morning (GMT+8, that's past midnight for you French). Usually I find that this time period is the optimum for me, it gets harder later on, I notice that at least 80% of my fights end up in 50/50 situations.
Just a little thought, I read the game rules, but I still do not clearly understand this part: "If you don't play ELO for a few days your ELO value will slowly go back to 1000."
Can someone let me know how much exactly is "a few days" and how "slowly" will my ELO value drop? Because if it's really insignificant, hell yeah, try Thursday or Friday
I think it all depends on how well you handle pressure. If you stay calm under pressure, Saturday and Sunday are the best days. People may be playing with refined decks and strategies, but many are also very nervous about losing points before the reset, and this can give you an advantage -- especially if you're running a deck that thrives in exploiting the opponent's errors. If you're the kind of person that doesn't play particularly well under pressure, I'd suggest playing throughout the entire week, so that you're about where you want to be by Thursday or Friday, and all you have left to do on Saturday and Sunday are a couple of games to maintain Top 100.
