    So another fixed team ranking dungeon arrives and it promptly shows me how bad/slow i am at comboing and that i suck hard under pressure.
    Took me like 300 stam for two good runs without orbtroll or panic flubs and it landed me at 13% don't think i can really improve much on that since i just can't combo well with a timer running down on me. Well rewards ain't that great anyway but not being top 10% hurts my pride a little xD

    Yeah, I'm around 13% too after finally getting a run where I swept all floors.

    Is there a strategy on active use? I've been doing Uranus on F1 to get rid of the poisons and Dragon Swordsman on the boss to make sure there's enough damage.

    I passed it going in blind just to see what the team was and haven't gone back. I'm sure I'm down at 60%-80% rankings.

    well I was happy to get in at 95%, demonstrated how badly I play so far. Or I could say I never got the skyfall or dark orbs, or, or, or, or I suck.

    I will get there, trying to learn the monsters as I saw a nice play with one active after two rows were changed, that worked well and was a one shot.

    I also had to go to options and turn off all the effects to hope for less time consumption. It helped, but I still suck.

    Been constantly trying to farm Myne, but I've only made it up to 11% so far... I don't see anyway to improve my run times at all.
    My usual strat is to pray I have dark orbs floor 1, use Zaerog flr 3 and get at least 9c, and Nohime the boss flr and hope the board is good enough for 9c. Now that I think about it maybe I'm relying too much on actives, I don't know. :p

    Edit: If the board has no darks, I'll just use Uranus(?) and try to 9c.

    I'm doing terrible. I think I need to setup my board differently. I keep hitting 7 combos 80% of the time. I try to copy what others do and start stacking in 3s from the bottom up, I think I'm cornering myself poorly after the 2nd row... I think I should be going vertical for the top 3 rows and not horizontal

    I am usually at 5 to 6, so practice and approach needs to change. Those bars of jammers or fire, are freaking me out.

    TFW you're at 2.9% and know it won't hold, but hold on to that sliver of hope that it will...

    Yep, you are totally right you kind have to split the board in half make two horizontal matches on the bottom then three verticals on top of them( it also works upside down)
    Then combo the other side of the board in the same way. It doesnt matter if the two horizontal matches are on the bottom or on top, simply look were its easiest to start.
    This is basically the best template to match the board to maximize combos. Stacking everything horizontally only really works on bi or tri color boards.

    Its takes a little thought to get a good starting point and to arrange the board in a way that no matches of the aame colors stack but once you start matching like this your combo count will improve substantially

    What's your strategy for active? For me, I'm activate no sky fall, 4 color active if first floor doesn't have enough dark. Pop the dark orb enhance skyfall 2nd floor. For boss, 3 color + heal active, then convert heal into dark to guarantee OKO with 7C. 6C will not do it. Leader active on other floor if not enough dark which is rarely if pop the enhance dark skyfall early. Also pop lead on the mid boss as 75% shield is hard to punch through without enough dark orb. It delays her.

    I got to 100K point and only make it to 42%... just one more floor sweep and I could make it under 40% easy but trying hard and cannot. I'm bad combo and average 6~7C. Amendo row plays really screw my combo style, keep seeing light row when all need dark.

    This ranking dungeon is rigged. Haha. I say that cuz I'll use zearog drop 15 dark orbs and not a single sf. Havnt really gotten many sf combos. Played prolly 30x sitting at 22%. Gonna try to crown this time. 3% is better then 1.

    Yea I guess I will start practicing that then. This would be the time with the ranking since I'm farming skill ups too as it is stamina efficient. My problem too is I always start from the bottom and should be looking at the top also in case it is easier to start.
