    PvP week 37: Don Slauki reigns Eternal!

    I am no Nicko, MJM, or Tridmensionale, but I had to post the congratulatory thread for my good buddy Slauki, the Champion and Eternal for PvP week 37.

    Well done my friend...Long overdue and very well deserved. You stood at the top of the rankings for nearly the entire week, and kept on amassing a good lead and cushion.

    Well done also to Kamuz and JJJ who rounded off the podium. JJJ kept close to Slauki all week, but Kamuz made a crazy run to catch and overtake JJJ at the end.

    Well done guys, impressive stuff and congrats to all of you.

    A few quick thoughts:
    - PvP was slow on Friday and Saturday with the event...I couldn’t play the last 7-8 hours on Saturday before reset due to having more RL fun with my family, so dropped from 8 to about 24. Was surprised that I was able to hold onto top 25, and realistically was hoping for at least top 50, so quite happy and surprised at top 25...only my 2nd time ever, so I’ll take it
    - PvP seemed more stable to me, and I did have just 1 Maclo error, but surprisingly the game remembered my victory and didn’t give me a loss, so the improvements that NF are making in error handling are definitely helping
    - Two Players at the low level — Madcom at Level 26 and Skorpinok at Level 36, finished 8 and 12 respectively. This is highly surprising, given their defense team is very weak (both have 3* and 4* toons in defense), so not sure what is going on there. I did see them on my attack lists, but they made a very impressive late run to climb up the ranks. Either they are very good gamers, or there is something screwey going on that NF needs to investigate

    Overall I have enjoyed the October events (except for the last), so sincere thank you to NF...these events made me come back from my break. Not sure how long I will keep on playing the game, but it has been fun being back, chatting with all my dear Maiden brothers on this forum, and playing with you guys in the battle field.

    Congrats again to the ever Eternal Don Slauki and to Kamuz and JJJ. Well done guys!

    Cheers,
    Ice

    Thanks Iceman for starting the thread this week. I also want to say a big congrats to Don Slauki and Kamuz this week and to myself for finally making the podium . I have to say to become an eternal takes an insane amount of time and dedication I tried keeping it close during the week while the event was going on but around midweek Slauki seem to just take off and I knew I had no chance so I was hoping to just make the podium. The event is what made it worth it to me, I had no problem constantly dropping ironite for refills as long as the event was going on trying to amass as many wins as possible. Once the event was over I tried to just maintain my position rather then try and rack up wins after wins. Not to take anything away from Kamuz because I am sure if I tried he would have kept his lead the whole time but once I saw I had third locked up and since there is really no difference between second and third in my eyes I kind of stopped going Saturday afternoon. Again, just want to say pretty sure Kamuz would have kept his lead, but I do apologize for not making the race a little more exciting.

    I would also like to point out for all the griping about VHE being nerfed he seems to still be the Eddie of choice seeing as almost every team I faced had him. He is the only one of two Eddies to scare me on defense cause at any time he can turn the entire match around with his fury. Honestly, it could do zero damage and I think it would still be crazy, reviving everyone and giving them crit status for 3 turns is so game changing.

    Also I would like to point out that Visions Eddie from attack perspective is highly underrated. I utilized him all week and he allows you to control a lot of defenses and its even worth it to shard him up for some of his moves.

    I want to again say the amount of time, dedication, and skill it takes to finish this high any week is unreal. If it wasn't for an event I can't see myself ever really bothering with it, so for all who have done it and done it multiple times I can not say enough how impressive they are as players. The amount of resources it takes vs the rewards does not seem equal to me. Can you even begin to imagine the races we might have if they up the rewards for the top 10 finishes each week?

    Congrats Slauki great job my trooper

    After a break from the arena all I can say is that thorn talismans are really overpowered they still need some adjustments defenses kill them selfs especially those with heavy hitters same goes for offense It was not safe using heavy hitters- seems like a Magus defense will be a great choice but we don’t have great Magus sadly most of them are just for support
    I got a prisoner last week I tried to use him in the arena but he’s really useless a 5 stars super rare toon shouldn’t be that mediocre on the other hand the 4 stars Valkyries they became very useful especially the Gunner one
    The defenses that I most like from last week were Nicko, Carlos, Enti, Fallen Angel
    Congrats to Carlos for his new baby

    Congratulations, Slauki,
    I fought your defense a lot this week and it really was a pain in the ass. Till I found out the right tactics, then it was easier. I hope there won’t be too many copies coming.
    Well deserved and congrats to Kamuz and jjj.
    I could make it to Top 50 this week again and am glad about it.
    I used VHE more than ever before and he’s still great after the nerf. Though I didn’t use him much before the nerf. My all time favorite in PVP is Wickerman Eddie, but with all those new toons that have automatic immunity, he’s not so much fun anymore.
    Welcome back Iceman.

    thank you for the kind words guys (especially iceman), was really fun but time intensive to ginds for it. wouldn't have been able to accomplish it without my mofo buddies (especially gmac), so thanks to all of them too.

    JJJ and kamuz were great opponents, so congrats to both of you. it was close till midweek so i decided to push as hard as possible for me till the end of the event.
    it was hard to climb, because this seems to be one of the slowest metas we ever had. yellow valk makes fights sooooo damn long for me at least. she is not dorectly OP but a pain in the ass i feel. some counter for perfect immunity would be nice. at least it would be cool if we could remove all other buffs aside perfect immunity from her and the other toons, that would balance things out i feel.

    aside that kamuz is completly right with the thorns they reflect way too much damage. and the both lowlevel guys iceman mentioned seemed also fishy for me.
    seems to be some sort of error there like we have seen several times.

    aside that was happy to see that the apma error got fixed, had several apmas, but every single one counted as win... just make sure that you have an internet conection before pressing okay, and things should work.

    not i'm happy to chill a bit again
