🥇 PIZZA 1 Back in First Place! 🥇 KGL's #HivePizza #BrawlReport - Brawl Ending 10/15/2021 🥇
Hello again beautiful humans!
Another week, another brawl... and in this case another ranked season ended.
This time around, between delegating out to friends, family, and guildmates, and renting out some extra GF cards... I ended up screwing myself over on the brawl a bit.
Some of my spiciest cards, like Valnamor and Crypt Mancer were in crazy long cooldowns. DOH!
I spent a little bit on rentals, and still managed to pull through with a very positive W:L ratio (without a single enemy fleeing), and the guild locked in a victory overall!
That's more like it! I got the same number of losses as the last brawl, and twice as many wins :-)
Overall I feel like I played pretty well, though it was almost midnight, and I had eaten two or three ganja cookies.
It seems like the lack of my own cards due to EoS issues was about balanced out by the 2000 DEC I spent on rentals to lock in my team.
One thing I feel really good about here is that I did manage to defeat the member of the closely ranked team (FHREE) in my fray - which was definitely my most important match.
Just in case you didn't already know, I actually play my brawls in a different order than it shows, because I usually do all my home first, or all my away first, and Id don't particularly track which one I play when, unless it stands out for some reason.
Battle #1 - WIN
Battle #2 - WIN
Battle #3 - WIN
Battle #4 - LOSS
Battle #5 - WIN
Battle #6 - WIN
Battle #7 - LOSS
Battle #8 - WIN
Overall - Recap
This was one of those big-brawl days, where brawls almost completely overlap with the end of the Ranked Season - which usually means a whole lot more rented cards, and a whole lot more competition overall.
This was another extremely close brawl, and this time the @Hive.Pizza team managed to come out on top, taking home 1st place! By one win!!
The folks from #FHREE were at the top spot on the leaderboard. We sat around 3rd or 4th through most of that, but we have a lot of people who don't enter their teams until the end of the brawls... So as we got closer to the end, we inched our way to the top.
Finally, we found ourselves tied for 1st with them, but we had 1 single battle left, for @funnel. It inspired a whole post actually: What A Brawl! - PIZZAs hit First Place Again and Everybody Goes Wild
This particular 1st got us all over 1800 merits (almost a whole pack!) and continued us on a long grind for Crowns to level up our buildings :-)
A Note on Gladiators
Wow... just wow. Gladiators are awesome!
Though a couple battles in there featured a Gladiator card either horrifically under-performing (7 speed skipping multiple attack rounds, not reverse-speed, in a legal attack position...)
And I guess at least one time that my Gladiator was among the first to die.
But at the same time, I literally won a game with just a summoner, a chicken, and a Gladiator card... so yeah. They crush it!
These are images of a few of my Gladiators who survived until the end of battle. That Quora especially, just so dang good! I really like Katrelba Gobson as well, but she unfortunately didn't make a showing this week.
With a few changes we're making to our brawl line-up, it looks like the members of PIZZA 1: The Stuffed Crust should be getting almost enough Merits for a full Gladius pack with every brawl moving forward :-)
