Hello all. I played PAD long, long ago, in the Before-Time, and am coming back after a hiatus of probably 2 years or so. After doing a bit of research, and pulling in the 10-Stone Godfest, I find myself in a strange place where I'm using a weaker team (Madoo, to be specific) rather than my strongest (Mega D. Meta) because I can't quite trust myself to hit 7 combos repeatedly. In a vacuum - or rather, in a dungeon that doesn't mess with your board much, like Extreme/Ultimate Corridors, which is where I go to practice - I can probably hit 7 about 70-80% of the time (not counting skyfall. Lucking into success isn't good enough for me.) I stacked my team with time extends as well as I could, and even some latents, so I'm looking at 12.4 seconds of movement, which I would think would be more than enough. From what I've been seeing, hitting 7 combos is taken as a matter of course these days, so I have to wonder - what am I doing wrong? For reference, my strategy is to start at either the top or bottom and string together 4 horizontal combos, then fill in what I can in the remaining space - a "perfect" board for me looking either like this xxxooo oooxxx xxxooo oooxxx xxxooo or this xxxooo oooxxx xyxoyx xyxoyx xyxoyx Now, doing this has me hitting 6+ combos about 99% of the time, but since I'm only hitting 7 in that 70-80% range, clearly it's not as trivial for me as I've been getting the impression it is for the majority. Am I missing something blatantly obvious, or am I just, well, bad at the game?
