Event started without any forum post, just announced and left to sit there, below chests. At first I didn’t even want to open it, had some losing streak i wanted to break.
In past i have listened horror stories from guild bully, that even he had troubles coming on top in these events and his stories were pretty intense.
Had to ask my crew if anyone risked with event. Got answer on total haul: 2 Epic cards, 21 rare cards, 177 common cards, 20k cash…GRAND PRIZE was mind twisting.
After little coffee, clicked hot button “JOIN”. Whole new arena opened 9 steps till grand prize, 2 chances for comeback. Main problem - HOW to reach goal, “strategy”. Went back and spend quite a time in:facepunch: ”WAR ROOM”, preparing DECK. After a while I lowered my expectations. Let’s say I win some/loose some and finnish/brittish with 10k gold and whatever I get from cards. At least ill live to tell my end and hustle guilders for not being honest about difficulty.
Once I pressed “FIGHT” button I knew ill go till the end without stop- DO or DIE. Trip from 0 to 9 went as expected. NOT EASY. After i lost for the second time at 6-7/9, i knew, it is what it is. And won next two-three games in quick back/forth rush. Reward was as guilder told me it will be. Published pictures of haul in other post on forum, you may have missed it New Challenge on May 9 - Epic Cards Galore!
Then I woke up some greed inside. Damn, I did it once. I can try once more. And once more and once more. I was amaized to discover that i have 50% discount for entrance fee greedy all the way… i swept opponents 9:0 in II, 9:1 in III and IV attempt(V was 5-6:3). GRAND TOTAL: 88k gold 8 epic, 84 rare and 808 common cards out of 5 attempts. Now to find more runes.
And managed to break losing streak in regular matches.
