Winning Streaks!

Recommended Posts

LegendofZapdos5

Hey Everyone! ^__^

 

I'm just posting about the new winning streak feature added to PTCGO. personally I LOVE IT for the fact you can climb the VS ladder at 3 times the speed! I also wanted to post my longest winning streak and I hope others will (For friendly competition of course ^__^) Also I hope it encourages others to play and beat the best record they find (With it being either mine or someone else's)

 

I also LOVE the fact that as you keep winning you get 30 or more versus points per win!

 

LONGEST WINNING STREAK: 11 WINS 

DECK(S) USED: VOLCANION EX/TURTONATOR GX

NEXT PERSONAL GOAL: 15 IN A ROW

 

I hope to hear your thought's as well as your best streaks

 

Best of luck to EVERYONE in acquiring there STREAKS!

Ya going up the ladder faster is cool! my only complaint is after 12+ wins i wish we'd be able to get say between 20-25 tokens a win verse's just 5 : (   since i like to grind tokens.

 

but ya my Longest Winning streak was 11 today : ) 

Deck: KoKo Gx/Jolteon Ex

Goals: don't really have any just going with flow lol happy finally hitting 10 : ) i kept hitting 6-8 lot

You are right. The ladder is more fun to play and it will let people stick in games longer instead of conceding faster. My logest streak is 12. Deck i used: mega rayquaza

I absolutely love this feature - I think it's one of the best changes to ever happen to PTCGO. I'm actually about to get that FA Steven, even though it's garbage, just because I'm having way too much fun!

 

Longest Streak: 13

Deck Used: Blastoise/Keldeo (Legacy)

Next Goal: None in particular. :P

13

decks used turbo volcanion, vespiquen vileplume (standard and expanded), decidueye-gx/aerodactyle, sablye/garbodor, raichu sazzle (standarD).

next goal, a 4th shaymin ex, 4 of the decks I used needed 3 of them, however I keep prizing 2 of them a 4th would solve my problems

As the guy who tends to complain about things... I'm enjoying the streak feature.  Might like to see it tweaked in the future, but especially for now, just gonna enjoy a good thing. ;)

 

Edit: Also, does the game record your longest streak?  I don't remember exactly, but in the Legacy Format, using Flufflychomp (to my surprise), I was able to enjoy a nice, long streak of 11 or 12 wins.  I think. ^^'

Looks like you and SK319 are in tie for first atm. (Battle Royal hehe)

 

So far I have only seem to be getting winning streaks of 5-7 for the most part (I knew it would be tough to beat the highest record on here LOL) Anyone else getting the same results or better? Please post your likes and dislikes about the new winning streak feature. All feedback is WELCOME! ^_________^

For me most of the time I reach 7-8 and then lose :D and mostly it happens to number 7 !! The number is unlucky for me somehow xD I got 2 dead hands in the 7th streak now :D

 

Other times, I need to break the streak for doing daily challenges xD

I really like the Winning Streaks too.

 

My best has been only 8 games won in a row. I played a Tapu Bulu GX deck I made.

I've reached 14 with a combination of Metagross in Standard, Hidden Moon in Theme, Decidonk in Expanded and Ray/Eels in Legacy. I guess the trick is to mix it up a bit :)

Timing is also probably a factor; it may seem unsportsmanlike, but the system doesn't care if you played during the peak rush hours when it seems like everyone with well-made decks they know how to use are online or whether you got lucky and faced five newbies in a row who rushed into non-Theme deck play with... well... barely or unmodified Theme Decks. XP

Nicely Done Rain! ^_^ My hat's off to you!

Our new World Record is currently 14-Done by RXN

 

Also I'm enjoying all these Tips, Tricks as well as feedback from the other players. You sure can learn ALOT just by listening sometimes. 

 

Keep the Streaks, advice and commentary coming my Poke-Friends. ^____^

I'm here to announce that we have a new record!!

 

A shoutout to RjSaavedra who just broke my streak of 24 consecutive wins with his Genesect EX deck!! :)

 

The vast majority of the streak was accomplished with my Ray/Eels deck in Legacy mode. I have to admit that between the 12th to 18th win I faced opponents with weak decks but I also managed to beat top decks like Empoleon/Dusknoir, Genesect EX, Landorus/Garbodor etc.

 

I've set the target high, let's see who will beat that!!

Good luck to anyone trying to beat Rainbow's record :).

24 @_@

 

Just one question, didn't you have like a really really really rotten hand --> in any of the matches :o Because I get that kind of hand every 7th streak happened 3rd time -__- even though i managed to win, but still haven't reached above 10..

 

Maybe you are like a really pro player then :o

7 win streak is my highest so far I believe.

 

This update is good but you don't get anything if you lose once you have gotten 2000 points on versus ladder

I got like bad starts in some matches but not dead end hands like 1 basic 6 energies.

 

 

 

Most of the battles turned favorable to me at some point and my opponent conceded.

 

 

 

There were some of them where I had to pull a good strategy that payed off eventually.

 

 

 

And as I said before, I faced weak decks in like 6 to 8 of my matches.

 

 

 

So in conclusion and from what I've experienced in that streak:

 

 

 

1) You need a strong deck with high win percentage.

 

2) You need to be lucky enough not to face a deck where you have a big disadvantage (I didn't face any Garchomps, I didn't face any TDKs)

 

3) You have to avoid getting a dead hand, at least against strong decks.

 

4) You must have a very good knowledge of your opponent's deck and strategy (quite easy if you play Legacy, most of the top decks are not very hard to learn)

 

5) You need to be able to switch strategies within a match in order to cope with your opponent

 

6) If your opponent gets a strong start you have to at least be able to get a good start as well (not necessarily the best, just not a bad one)

 

7) You need luck in general

 

8) You need to be a pro player like me ok I'm joking :P

 

 

 

Well, in case I forgot something, there's always the edit option :)

 

 

 

Thanks for reading.

Seems legit !

However, you did miss one point, that I frequently do not follow. Never mis-play or mis-click :D :D (One of my biggest problems lol ! and I realise too quickly just quick enough after the match is over xD )
