    Hi there MinionIX,

     

    If you feel a little desponent about the state of the game in terms of it being quite hard to win, then you need to check out on my Tips and Tricks on how to win the game, in these forums.  Give yourself time to read over the articles I have submitted and if you have questions about your circumstances, feel free to post them out and I will try to help.

     

    Cheers, kman64

    Thanks for the help. My problem is that my opponents are using maxed out characters (VII) with maxed out gear (450 or 600). My current teams can't keep up.

    In some stroke of luck I got Extreme Rules gear from last season. So I'm focusing on bumping that up.

    That said, right now my strategy is to hope and pray that I don't get matched up against those guys. Else all my attacks get deflected and I eat three finishers in a row.

    Hi MinionIX,

     

    If you feel that your chacters are not ready to play the Legendary VII Platinum characters with a 600 gear score, then you may try the following suggestions: -

     

    1. Play your weaker characters, such as the Silver ones!  The matches you play with the Silver ones are way easier compared with your Golds, because in the MP games, your opponents will be determined by the strength of your team.  Therefore your most likely matchups will be other Silver characters and weaker Golds.

     

    2. Try to avoid playing as many Main Events!  What happens in the main event is that your first match should be quite easy, then as you keep winning, it gets progressively harder!  Consequently by the time you reach your fifth game, it will be the hardest  to win!   A good compromise is a Show Match if you want to score higher completion bonuses, but a Single match is the easiest to complete.

     

    3. Play a "honey pot" matchup.  Play one of your best gold, plus two bronzes.  And load up your Gold player with the best gear.  Again, for the same reason as in point 1, the most difficult opponent you will face will be 3 weak golds, but most will be the silver characters, which your gold will just eat up.  I have to admit that I sometimes use the honey pot match up to win games against opponents defending (this is when a live player challenges mine and they lose), which is always nice.

     

    Let me know if that helps.  kman64

    Again, thanks for the advice! Yeah, its hard to not play three gold ally teams in main events. I recently, reluctantly, went down to Show matches. The Platinums with max gear arent there as much.

    I did not know about honey pot matches. Do they produce 4000 teams or is that only a three gold ally team thing?

    Hi MinionIX,

     

    The term "Honey Pot" match is my terminology, my lexicon, my invention!  I find it fasciniating that you found the term that interesting that you have raised it as a query. 

     

    The idea behind a "honey pot" match up is to set up a MP team that tempts other online players to play against yours.. When they accept your challenge to fight you they look at your Bronze players and think that you are no match for them, and they will win this game easily, like bears lured to a honey pot.  In the end they will find out too late that they are no match against you and lose.  For a more detailed explanation, refer to the link below.

    You need to understand the difference between being an "Attacking" team and being a "Defending" team in a MP match.

     

    The scenario that I am referring to above relates to you being the "Defending" team, which in reality, serves no purpose to you!  The reason is that when your MP opponent accepts your challenge and fights you, in fact what is really happening is that these guys are actually fighting against the computer using your players.  Do you understand?  So when you actually win these types of matches, it's the computer that wins the game for you.

     

    Therefore, where the Honey Pot match up benefits you, is when you are the "Attacking" team.  Because like I said before, when the game calculates the strength of your team to work out a suitable opponent for you to fight, you will find that the opponent will most likely be Silver players or weaker Golds.  So in effect you will be fighting against the computer using the Silver and weak gold players from other teams!  And the great thing is, you will not be playing aginst the Platinum gorillas, the stuff from your worst nightmares!  Do you understand the concept now?

     

    I hope that reasoning helps.  If you have futher questions, feel free to ask.  kman64
