PvP Advice (Moved from old forum)

Post by BlackDog on Thu Jun 05, 2014 3:07 pm

Need some advice on the PVPs.

I have no problem getting into the 700-800 range at this point. The problem I run into is that it's impossible for me to stay there, no matter how much I play. For every fight I win I end up losing three, especially in the last couple of hours. Is purchasing shields worth it? And if so, when is the right time to use them? Obviously if I get high enough in the last hour I can get one but is there a right way to set that up?

Thanks,

kaiyote

Purchasing shields is crucial to getting into a top place in PvP. During the last few hours things get very competitive and it is very hard to make progress. The strategy I use (and it is a popular one) is to play up to a moderate level (500ish) earlier in the tourney. Then with about 10 hours or so remaining I play up as high as I can, up to the point where the enemies are too powerful or I get attacked too much to make progress (usually 800 - 900), and then I put up an 8 hour shield to carry me through the end of the tourney. At the very end I often un-shield to get in a couple more attacks if I am near a threshold.

The PvP mechanics have changed quite a bit recently, so some of the forum advice is out of date. Historically if you joined a tournament later on you usually landed in an easier bracket and I think this might still be true to some extent. The level of your characters definitely effects how hard of a bracket you land in. Also your MMR (overall tourney rating) is thought to effect what bracket you get put in.
