    Ended up at 26.7%, just couldn't make that last little leap. Oh well, it was a fun challenge, and I finally made a Verse for both accounts, so it wasn't a waste.

    Good to know, thanks!

    @iddybat Verse is a good investment and this tournament wasn’t easy if you didn’t have one.

    I was right, my Main fell down to 16.1% overnight. Hopefully we’ll get a snow globe rush or something cool soon. Otherwise ill be farming Ruby dragons forever, lol.

    I really, really hate this place. I lacked the exact stuff needed to do the Verse strat comfortably. Since I have no Tsubaki, all 3 different versions of my Kiri (1 of them is not max level and is Awoken for 2 Dragon killers only) either gets voided with literally 1 combo on Rikuu or doesn't do enough before I could make it do so then it's voided.

    I finished best with 30.2% :(

    I swear to god skyfall loved to keep on happening on all floors that weren't Floor 6, like I could make 2 combos and skyfall until 14, but on Floor 6, EVERY SINGLE TIME that I was short of the 9 combos, I would NEVER get an additional skyfall combo! I felt like Gungho's coding was set to purposefully troll me. Unless I get weirdly lucky and fall 4.3% and can get a Rikuu, it seems I do not get 1 this time.

    Anyone who's played this game long enough believes the exact same thing.
    If you need a skyfall to hit a combo shield, skyfall chance is set to 0%.
    If you get Sopdet, there's a 200% chance for skyfalls the rest of the run.
    If you forget a shield with a low HP team, chance for DQ Hera to show up is set to 100%.
    If something has a resolve and don't have FUA for hearts, you will skyfall enough orbs to make sure you die to it's nuke.

    100% coded into the game. No conspiracy theory.

    Verified true with experience.
    Also, someone got bound and less than 100% SBR, time to get skill bound next wave.

    Oh I bet we could put together a pretty epic list of the nonsense that conveniently happens. :D

    Dont forget.


    Running a rainbow team? Clear the board and get trolled with less than three orbs of a color on a must kill floor.

    Running a combo team? You'll love this perfect 6 combo board!

    I am at 33.6%. Perfect! I don’t need a second Rikuu, and getting all the other rewards is nice. (I think I care most about the 55k MP)

    OMG that list is so true! Add to the list on all of the floors that weren't 6, you match just what you need and it purposefully skyfalls and matches for the next 15 seconds in a timed run!

    I think I quit at least a dozen runs on this tournament due to a bad Avalon board split.

    I also love it when I need 9 orbs to VDP and my board changer(s) give me 8 orbs or less.

    Holy shit. I didn’t realize how much my rank had fallen in those last hours. I was out of town and not paying much attention, but... 102 points. That’s what I missed the 26% cutoff by. I’m not sure if it’s like the old ranking dungeons and a handful of accounts will get knocked off for cheating, letting the point total required creep down to my level or not.

    I’m pretty sure the 26% cutoff is, unusually enough, a much higher point total than it was in JP. Presumably because we had the team strategies worked out beforehand and Verse is so accessible.

    Ran Legendary Skyrealm for the first time tonight... just before the server maintenance booted me out.

    I decided to try out the Anublos idea and cleared it first attempt, solo, on both accounts. Thanks to my BFF @BurningMan for his wonderful Diablos. :)

    Yes he is resistant and it took a few rounds. I lucked out and got the Cloud Block SA on both of my Anubii (plural god form?) so that trick he does went away. :)

    Valten does a random cloud block on the board every (other?) turn. Very annoying when you also have to deal with two spinning orbs. Though, it is not quite too annoying on a 7x6 board.
