I did it!
I finally managed to break into Bronze 2! Huge shoutout to my Merchants Guild, as I couldn't have gotten there half as fast if they weren't helping me out.
Unfortunately, this now means I get to butt my head against the different modifiers there are while battling. I appreciate the diversity in gameplay as it keeps things interesting and adds a whole new dimension to an already great game. Also super happy to be earning DEC from wins now.
Of course the only answer is going to be play and learn as I go, but I was wondering what advice you might have to a new player taking their first steps into what might be considered the real game? I'd love to hear some of your favorite ways to play with different modifiers or which ones you absolutely despise.
