I'm sure this has happened to other people too. Most of the times I venture in the Tournament section, the games aren't very close. Either I win easily or (more often) I lose pretty badly. Yesterday, I was in the middle of a really good match! It was back and forth.. at the beginning I thought they were going to win easily. Then I got a couple of lucky draws and I came back and I thought I was going to win. Then they had one good move and killed my most powerful card, and I had no idea who was going to be able to win.
Then.... around turn 12 or 13, the game froze.
The longer you play and the better your deck gets, the more games like that you'll get to experience... hopefully without the freezing problem lol. If it freezes, refresh the browser or close and open a new one and log in fast. It'll take you back to the battle and if the action was on you, it'll reset your timer to the full time for the phase.
So I had a classic meta-Never Give Up match, where my opponent had wiped my board and had 2 big bodies: 1800 and 2200. But then they just... didn't play all their mana each turn for whatever reason:
- I put down 2001 Sakura and book her
- Decree Sakura, punch me
- 2250 Katia, Dodge trap
- NOTHING, no summon, no trap, no attack
- face-down Emily, EX-Invite
- 1800 attacks Emily (dodged), 2200 attacks Katia (invited), GIVE UP
Then I had a game against DoctorD00m. Both sides laying traps all over the place with no obliteration in sight. Actually, it started with a 2100 Sakura being book'd but not attacking because of my trap (which he correctly guessed was EX-invite). So he spends his mana on traps. Problem with that is, it doesn't stop me developing my board. At one point, I punched his face-down with a 700 3 drop and won, all while revealing his 2 traps didn't proc (narrows down the culprits a lot). He got out a 1500 Natalie to hit my 3 drop. Then I reveal I had Hotaru face-down and safely sac her into Natalie (while burning his Never Give Up) - would have hurt a lot more if I had to bump into 2700 Sakura (book x2). Ram everything I had left into his Sakura leaving his Natalie alive. He gets out a 2nd Natalie and rams into my fresh Sakura (2301 from Hotaru). So he's left with some face-down and 1500 Natalie... oh and 1060 life.
Sap. 2550 Katia vs 1000 Natalie. GG.
I had a guy suicide an Emily into a 2700 Anteret to break my Never Give Up... just to realize he was now too low to run his Natalie in to combo kill her with another girl. He waited like 45 seconds then ran Natalie into her to kill himself.
This morning I had my "lol moment" against one guy.... I had in my trap field a "One for All" and one Mary... My enemy used the card that show up my trap.... Then he/she attacked me with his/her Anteret... He/she miscalculated the atk and my Mary won by 1atk xDDDD, then she/he drop the game (when he/she still had big chances to win).

I was really burned out after getting 100 wins in last week's tournament, so when I saw that the reward list for this one was the same, I decided to take a breather and have only done a few matches to ensure a spot in the top 500 this time. However, I've been getting medals as a reward even where they aren't listed as rewards. Is the reward list inaccurate? I'll be hella mad if I miss out on something good because they forgot to update the reward list.
(Sorry if this is answered somewhere else, I took a quick look around and didn't see anything)
This happens because the game is very momentum based. Once a player gains momentum (usually this is the player who is attacking every turn), it's hard to stop it.

I suspect it's just that the awards from the previous tournament are awarding on this tournament too, like they forgot to disable them or something, and they aren't SUPPOSED to, but they won't overwrite a reward from this time, and you can only get 1 at any given CP level.

I don't normally double post, but this is worth drawing attention to I think. I got to 200 points and quit, not overly caring if I held top 30 or not. I went to bed and figured I'd see in the morning. This is what I see when I check final standings:
Too perfect. Poor HansBlubb.
Ehm... The turnament ended and... Where are the reward points?
And someone noticed that there is a player without name at the medal rankings with 20.000.221 earned medals? is a bug? hack? other?

"We'll roll out a new Tournament Season. . ."
Tournaments are more or less permanently back-to-back?
I'm thinking that's a bug. The number might be how many points total everyone who's ranking right now earned.
