Well, this was an odd season for me. Everything was going pretty much according to plan and then I was away for almost 4 full days close to the end of season, only being able to play a few matches with my phone every now and then. Luckily, I got everything sorted out just in time for the last day of the season so I went in battling hard and managed to place at a rating of 4,570 just minutes before the end of season. I quickly checked the leaderboard and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was enough for the top 50. With only like 10 minutes to go there wasn't any more I could hope to gain from there so I stopped playing at that point.
|Rating||4570 - Champion II|
|Total Rating Movements (+-)||8292|
|Ranked Ratio (Win/Loss+Draw)||1.28 (234/180/3)|
|Tournament Ratio (Win/Loss+Draw)||0.94 (303/320/3)|
|Tournament Reward Placements||11/28|
|Highest Rated Win vs||@bubke (4736)|
I managed to come in at #48 for the season. Not in Champion I but a top 50 finish is always great and with the missed playing time in the days prior that's way more than what I had hoped for. I'm really happy I finally managed to fight into the top 50 on the last day of the season as that's usually where I struggle most. My win rate improved as well, from 1.24 last season to 1.28 this season.
I'm a bit sorry about that highest rated win against bubke as that was around 40 minutes before the end of season and it probably cost him a top spot to loose that match.
Top 10 Summoner Usage
|Summoner||Frequency||Teams Fielded||Win Rate|
|Scarred Llama Mage||66||11.09%||57.58%|
Not too many surprises in the summoners used. Yodin Zaku still reigns supreme. My win rate with him is up almost 5% compared to last season. I've also bought a Hydra during the season and hell, that card is sick with Scarred Llama Mage!
As I had already noticed last season, I'm not that good with Daria Dragonscale. I've managed to recover from the abysmal 37% win rate but 46% is still nothing to be proud of so I'll focus on getting that back to at least 50% for next season.
I also still need to utilize Zintar Mortalis better. I love Owster Rotwell but both champions probably would have better win rates if I used Zintar more...
Top 100 Monster Usage
|Monster||Frequency||Teams Fielded||Win Rate|
|Angel of Light||34||5.71%||61.76%|
|Lord of Darkness||31||5.21%||45.16%|
|Warrior of Peace||10||1.68%||80.00%|
|Torhilo the Frozen||2||0.34%||50.00%|
Undead Badger and Hydra are the cards that moved up most and looking at their win rate, there's still a lot of room to improve. As always with new cards, it's a learning process to really understand when to best use them.
Serpentine Soldier is quite the gem with 77.5% win rate but only played 6.72% of the time. Maybe I need to look into that option more.
Win Rate by Ruleset
|Back to Basics||48||58.33%|
|Odd Ones Out||33||63.64%|
|Up Close & Personal||31||38.71%|
|Keep Your Distance||28||71.43%|
|Fog of War||24||54.17%|
|Rise of the Commons||23||56.52%|
I'm happy to see my win rate for Noxious Fumes back at 66%! I love that ruleset as it really changes the way you look at your monsters. At the same time I'm obviously pretty bad with the Holy Protection ruleset. I need to better understand what monsters to use in that situation as neither of my preferred builds (heavy burst and heavy sustain) seem to work too well with it.
Little League is another ruleset I loose a lot which is mostly due to the fact that I lack the right summoners and some low mana cost cards for some of the splinters. Melee Mayhem is the worst of all, though. I'm pretty shocked by that miserable 27.78% win rate. I really need to focus on fixing that fast!

Tournaments are looking pretty good, a lot of winnings without any major standouts. After the many missed games of last season, I'm happy to see that I managed to play (most of) my games again.

In terms of rewards, I was super lucky this season. Yesterday, I found a golden Almo Cambio in my quest rewards. So far, there are only 16 gold foil copies in existence for the card and the only card listed on the market right now is valued at 150$. Jackpot!
This puts me at an amazing 86,570 DEC from ranked play rewards which is the best I've had so far!
I'm super happy with the way the season went and while I have a lot of catching up to do still, I'm also looking forward to more interaction with both Hive and Discord. Tomorrow I should be back with another proper article and since I've taken a week off after Easter I should be able to publish a lot more articles again in the coming weeks.
Thank you all for reading and see you next time!
