We Need Welfare Epics got to 1604 last night. We did really well, raising our rating almost 80 points. Definitely a step in the right direction.
We decided that the downtime after the Arena match started wasn’t really working for us. It allowed the other team far too much time to selectively pick their targets and develop a strategy. So instead we decided a full assault, while calling targets on the fly was much better suited for us.
And it worked great. The only team we lost to more than once was a pretty good team and that great gear, making it difficult to burst down any one target. We lost to one team called “For NARNIA”, but after the match we knew we could completely stomp them in to the ground. And sure enough, about 6 matches later or so, we faced them again, and wiped the floor, leaving all 5 of our members standing when the dust settled.
Zubu thinks him and I can get our 2s rating up to 1850 before our 5s. Which is probably true. But for now, we did great with 5s this week, and I hope the trend continues.
