Probably best to stay in Gold this season!
One more day to go and the second season with the new rewards lays behind us. Time to decided if I do move up to Diamond again or stay in Gold.
Both the first 2 new reward season was filled with Diamond boxes for my account. Filled is maybe a too big word.
In my first reward season I was granted around 132 chests. Did loose count somewhere. But the rewards weren't that bad with 72 cards, 31 potions, 2 Chaos Legends packs and a whopping 20K DEC.
The downside was that I never played so many games in years, even resulting in a negative win/loss ratio (.98). I did play 572 games.
While I did get a lesser amount of chests compared to the old reward system, the rewards itself were better.
But it appears that this was pure luck.
So far I did earn myself 87 chests filled with 35 cards, 4544 DEC and 17 potions. I am already assured of 54 End of Season chests.
As you see I can easily advance to Diamond again; but the question is if I do want to do this. I do know that the competition at the end of the season is less at the bottom of Diamond than at the top of Gold.
I also do know that the content of the Gold boxes are statistically lower than the Diamond ones.
The question is if I will earn more boxes in Gold than in Diamond and if so, will I earn twice the amount of boxes. If this latter is the case, then staying in Gold could be worthwhile. But as long as I don't try it; I will never know.
With a vacation around the corned I will probably play less than normal, so maybe Gold is the better place to stay in. But than I should get out of Silver quick enough to earn a decent amount of Focus Points to grab enough chests.
All question where I don't have the answer on. The only way to find out is to try it. So I will stay in Gold.
