Where is the line at for top 5k, since that will be my new home for the time being? All I know is that 5124 was fine last week (#28XX) and now 5128 isn't enough and the minimum requirement seems to be 5132 and up.

My score of 5,060 fell out of top 5k already yesterday. Hard to tell how much the inflation will accelerate. 

If you think that I got my first 5,xxx score about three months ago and I have been in top 5k for the most of AAs lifetime...

Yeah, I feel you. No Roy, Cherche, Cordelia and Caeda (will replace BH!Roy) in months for me. Only one Cordelia which was booked for Oscars GF. 

I managed to score a new personal record this week, but no chance to stay in top 5k anymore. 

since the demotion to the 3* and 4* stuff it has really gotten hard to get hands on the some previously comon units... we need a solution to this ._.

A skill shop where you can buy some skills with feathers and can use unlimited amount of time for SI etc. keep the newest skills locked for a good amount of time. But its really getting bonkers at the moment. There are so many units that i cant even properly built my units because lack of skills.... its insane

At the same time they stopped to do 4* banners, which is doubly unfortunate.

No more time to try again? I'd never end a week without a 7-win streak, but I understand that does not apply to everybody.

As for me, it truly saddens me that the threshold is skyrocketing so quickly in AA and the dumb game isn't giving me copies for my core to keep up (pulled blue for Ninian, but got no Nowis in the process, once again). Figures the day would continue being annoying after GC, -Att Ninian, the Ares/non-Lene drop... le sigh....

Oh, I meant that I didn’t get a deathless run, only 1 unit died in the streak

 

But it’s not enough to jump a tier up even with a deathless run

It's not as if they ever had those on a regular schedule, though. We've only had three of those total, one each in the second half of January, the first half of March, and the first half of April.

Oh, I see, that makes sense. Losing an entire match would surely make a difference, one single unit, on the other hand, might be irrelevant.

Oh boy, even top 5k won't be a given if I don't pay attention.

Apparently, Naga didn't want to screw with me anymore and actually lowballed only one of my AA matches in a frustrated attempt to end this day on a better note. I somehow managed a score of 5140.... holy..... Never been this high before, and I'm glad I have enough units to kill off the monsters up here. I'll actually stay another week in top 3k now, but now I know, I won't stay here too long if I don't get some Nowis soon.

That's true, perhaps IS will come back doing these banners after some time. I doubt they got as much money out of them as expected though.

Cool congratulations! Good luck getting Nowis from the next banner.

It costs them pretty much nothing to make these banners, so there's pretty much no loss from putting them out.

They're probably waiting for the dust to settle from the mass rarity drop. There is probably enough feedback about the dilution of the lower rarity summoning pools, so I can't imagine they'd discontinue the banner type.

Sounds like I should start saving up orbs. Not exactly one of my strengths ...

Was ranked 2125 in AA which is a major relief since 5160 is the best I've ever done I think, and I was pretty proud of that! Also safely stayed in tier 20. Forgot to check for extra defense wins, but I think I ended up with 8 running Lucius, Raven, Mae, and Amelia. I was honestly surprised since I thought Amelia would hold the team back. She's not a bad unit, but I haven't given her anything special really... Not even a weapon refine. 

Gonna run the same team next season and hopefully get back to using Merric after that. He's the only member of my Arena core who hasn't hit 5k HM yet.

Season 68 Results:

Score: 3,648
Defense: 614
Rank: Tier 20 --> 20

U96SIWE.png

Originally I had scored 3,438 with Ishtar as my bonus unit, but by this morning that was skirting dangerously close to the cut-off.  Replacing Ishtar with Kana allows me to more reliably fish for 728+ scores, and increasing my old score by 10 lets me stay in tier 20 with a lot more wiggle room.

Back to tier 19 and still far away from top 5k. 

This week I got 3 def wins which is not a lot but it's something at least. As I suspected Ike isn't good for my defense team but I don't have anyone better so he'll stay until the next rotation.

Edit: Guess I read wrong, this was my demotion week so it's tier 19 instead.

Offense score of 3654 (T20) remains in T20, combining with a defense score of 620 for max rewards.

This week, I experienced firsthand the blatant overpowered-ness of Berserk Armads/Bonfire/Wrath Hector. I knew it was strong from running the matchups but...wow.

I've indeed managed to stay in tier 20 for the first time ever. I guess the extra 1k feathers is nice.

@Raven Congratulations! Good luck staying there for some other weeks. 

Meanwhile I reached my personal Highscore of 3,610 in regular arena (which would have been 5,054 in the old system, practically my AA score), since Shiro is bonus this week. I'm curious how far the cutoff to stay in tier 20 will be.

It was honestly only made possible because I had a SI'd +4 Amelia at the ready. If I was stuck using some other under-trained shitter I'd never have made it.

Back to T19 after my T18 demotion and I'm torn on whether to even bother trying for T20 again. I got an above average score last time out during an easy scoring week and still got demoted, so trying again during Water week is probably a futile endeavour. :\ My only chance would be merging all my Ikes and giving him a water blessing, but that doesn't seem worth it.

Finished normal arena with a score of 3,602 (finally broke 3,600 yay!)

For AA I got a new record of 5,082 but it is water season so it's not that impressive.

This season's focus units leave me no choice but change my team to adapt around the ones I have... And since it was a Earth-blessed week, I know I could do something. And with a score around 3514, I effectively succeed to do up to tier 20 again. I've been yoyoing now...

So, the team...

So, yeah, big change. Ike is the Focus Unit, and since it was redundant to use Legendary Ike, I used Female Grima instead. Thanks to the blessings, I got around the same scores as before, but this week, it'll change again. Maybe I'll try something different since I'm 100% sure to go down to tier 19 again.

Around this score, I start to met many +10 characters... And one of them stood out :

Damn. That's some pretty level of dedication. A Spring Alfonse, a Nephenee and a Siegbert (or a Valentine!Lilina) died for him to exist. 47 base speed is frightening. 29 Def even after L&D3 is quite good too.

Arena: Saw L&D L'Arachel. Safely tanked her with Spring Sharena.

Assault: Had a run completely trashed because I left my LA!Eliwood to be fried by Reinhardt. Won't be able to improve this run, since second-runs are a waste of my time if I fail, and I won't have time for FEH for the rest of the season due to travel plans.

Did an Arena run with only 752 and 754 scores. Got five 752's which put me at Rank #4. I dropped one spot since then, but being in the top 10 is a really cool achievement. I have plenty (580) of dueling crests to cherry-pick for only 754 scores to be rank #1, but I don't think I have the patience for it.

Attempted an early AA run with the same water blessing boosted team as the lead, and a warp powder Zelgius gutted my 4* Artur that I use situationally on the 3rd map. I was able to squeeze out the win for the daily rewards, but I surrendered after that. With Armors and Fjorms everywhere, AA is providing a pretty decent challenge. I need to build more armorslayers/gem weapon counters.
