    I cannot congratulate on that. It is insane! Nothing personal of course! The top3 has now 11k, 18k and 20k.
    It is a shame that NF encourages this kind of crazyness by the strech goals and the run for relics! It is irresponsibility at its finest.
    I mean these guys are in danger to not seeing any daylight for the whole week. They might lose their jobs, friends and families - if they have anything out of that. We could now estimate the amount of ironite needed for that and convert it to real money. I would assume to see some alarming numbers!
    Of course, everybody is responsible for him/her self in regards of spending time and money on a mobile game, as well as when to start considering that as an addiction and when to see a doctor.
    Take care, you guys!

    blade, i know both guys and i can assure you they are very fine persons. they are certainly extreme, but so are we since we are playing this game for 2 years now . i can pretty exactly calculate the amout of ironite needed for that and you would be surprised it's not THAT much. many guys blow much more for event souls for sure. this game and this community is about dedication and love to the band and to the game. and both carlos and kamuz are passionate and skilled as hell....if someone says "everyone can do this if he has the time and ironite" this is pure BS and this week this should pove him wrong...unless your day would have 72 hourse then, it's not possible for average guys to reach this even with full maxed relics. this is pvp SKILL at it'S finesta and i really enjoy the race.
    i cannot see a reasons for your stupid clichees , losing job bla bla, losing family bla bla, losing friends bla bla...if your life is somewhat organized you can have it all and your firends will survive if you don't have that much time for them in one week when you are chasing after your passion.

    Nice respond, Slauki! 2 weeks ago me & Kamuz were accused of using bots, now this. There's always gonna be people accusing others of cheating only because they are better than them. Both 20 000 points players have been playing since DAY 1, people! What do you expect from players being constantly in the higher ranks from the beta PVP! I myself had a lot of ironite without being on top that much so if you play your cards right, you'll have an advantage against others.. in most cases. I should mention Nicko here, he is back again with very creative defense AGAIN, hat's off man! Lost against his team 3 times and gave up, used my most wining teams and still lost. So yeah, relics play some role here but if you're as creative as Nicko, you'll be a winner every time you decide to be
    This is too much typing for me, I'm out!
    No we're not in paradise

    No, it's not our paradise
    But it's all we want
    And it's all that we're fighting for
    But it's not paradise

    I have to agree with Slauki on this one. These guys are simply skilled and ten cuts above - pure and simple. Carlos has a great job - a great family - and two beautiful children. Kamuz - from my limited interaction with him - has his act together as well and has always been fast as hell - an ace at both offense and defense. To say you can't congratulate them on this amazing achievement - and imply they're putting their lives in jeopardy just because they can outmaneuver the casual player with ease - is just wrong. I know there are language issues here so excuse my taking what you said at face value - but these guys deserve big congrats and thanks Druid for starting this thread.

    And thanks for the props Bradata! I've become a dabbler but it's still fun to tinker - once in a while something just works - and while I've always had an affinity for defense, Fallen Angel and Kamuz are the defensive masters of the day. In fact Fallen Angel gets the "Most Annoying Defense Ever" award - and I say that as a major compliment!

    I don't see this as a too much of a time investment as, since the introduction of the Relics, many top players had big piles of iron coins and brought the most possible out of them. Right now, they are practically invincible and are thrashing, burning & wiping the floor with the most / many teams. This isn't a competition anymore, but its not their fault if someone from the NF thought that the Relics are good for the game. And it really is, but it is just for few, as it seems, and those can even play all of the matches on auto, I believe, at least the most matches against the "casual" players of the Arena.

    Very good point! I did not think of that but you are right! With many many relics and a good idea of team builds auto pilot may really be an option! In a way this disagrees with what Slauki said, so maybe some of the top players want to share some ideas about their strategies!? What is your win%? What proportion of matches do you do on auto?

    @Slauki: I do not doubt them being nice persons, that's why I put that sentence in the first line of my comment. I also play this game with a lot of passion and I spend a lot of time but only very few money on it. It is not my aim to criticise the respective players and I think I have choosen the right words. If not, its because english is not my mother tounge.
    I rather want to rise some awareness because other players might get the idea to also try to go for that huge number of wins/points and I am sure, that not all of them have an organised life as you put it. This is where I see the danger. Challenge can take over and create addiciton, especially for young people. Moreover, if many players do these 1000 wins (or how many do the top3 have right now? 1500), they proof NF right to put these high demands. Maybe next time the goals go up to 2k and the "sweet spot" for completing the tali set is raised to 500? I would clearly dislike such a development, you too?

    okay if you put it that way i can agree with it. i just disliked the standard chiches about gamers from your previous posts. you would be surprised how successfull many of us are in real life, because if you have passion and dedication it's easy to transfer this into other parts of your life as well. that's how professional sportsmen/musician/artists get their highest level of success, they simply put in a ton of work and get better and better. that's why i love this attitude in general.
    that said your points are valid, it's a small path that divides good/healthy/professional attitude and addiction. and i really dislike the amount of grind in this game and i would have prefered to see the action in the arena going down with this horrible relics. but the opposite seems to be the truth. so NF did everything right??? i doubt it

    I wonder whether or not it is time to create different leagues within PVP - that I think would help all levels. Just have the top rosters fight it out amongst themselves for the 'champions' league and then have leagues below that where simialr fights can take place over the week or month. I have this on a game I play and it works well I think as there are fewere beast teams to play and much more within your reach to beat.

    Leagues could be based on your relic level (overall combined score), your roster or similar. Clearly your in game level would not work as I would guess that the vast majority (maybe) are 100. I know many team I have faced this week I just did not stand a chance with 80% relics and then more for each class - just domination, especially if they go first. That too is fine but it must be a nightmare for those lower down or more likely in the top 250 - 100 - the normal non-event top 100 is usually full of very tough teams - all of whom deserve their spot as they play so mauch more and therefore get way more IC than a more casual player.

    I't a tough one to set up maybe. Not sure. But as other suggest I think if you are not bothered about froping 1000 ironite or whatever it is and you have so many maxed relics then auto must be a real option for a small bunch of players.

    I am happy enough to not bother with having to be top 100 anymore - if I get it fine but more often then not top 250 is OK by me as I tend not to need to buy any SoW to get that. The loot difference between the two is just not worth the effort or buying an extra SoW an hour before reset (which I used to do).

    Hats off to the big time players though - serious dedication - I really honestly do not know how they find the time or indeed the patience to do it - I would be bored daft! I just got my 150 wins this week and I think I will call it a day on trying for 300 with only today and tomorrow left and a life to live with kids etc.....just not worth it when I can finish off with a 500 ironite spend to get a final talisman - if indeed it is worth it as they are weak versions......which is the norm for these events as others have said elsewhere.

    @Slauki: Good that we found some understanding now! Next time we can switch to german if neccessary

    Anyway I "lost" some good friends from my youth as they could not stop playing WoW, LoL etc. and did not do their studies properly while I did my PhD already. Plus playing some instruments, doing sports etc...so I guess I know what you mean! But I am sad for my friends. They are all clever as hell, but just can't stand the temptation of gaming and trying to be the best, forgetting about time and responsibilities in real life. Maybe I am a bit more aware of these psychologic aspects because of that. These games/game modes with rankings are successful in creating addiction and sometimes they are even made exactly to do so! Does anyone NOT know the episode in South Park about mobile games and addiction in general? If that is the case, please watch it, it is gorgeous!
