So here we are again.  4 days after I recruit Black Bolt and go into farm mode, here comes PvP.  But not just PvP but a whole new slew of tasks and and side quest too!  At least there isn't another lockbox on top of all this.  Actually going to try to get back into Diamond this time as the item looks interesting.


PvP Season 11 Post Mortem:

Finished back in Diamond after last season's hiatus.  Mised Vibranium by 39 points :(

Not bad, hit a bad streak of Crazy, Cheese-eating Dodge Monkey Agents which made for tough going.   As I said before this bodes ill for next season...  All in all not bad.  SWMBO finished Vibranium again, so at least I get to see the new uniform on her account!

10/28/13 D-Day:

Well here we go, the same mix of excitement and trepidation that hits at the end of each PvP Tourney.

Did an extra attack last night, but that was all i could do as I have an early day at work today.  Went 0-4 last night.  Got 5 wins in 5 attacks and an extra Rift Essence off the Spinner :P  FYI She Who Must be Obeyed had 4/5 RE's this morning and got a Shard off the last spinner so she spent her 10 Gold and started her research, but all was not lost, she won 10 Gold off the daily spinner this morning... Playdom giveth, Playdom taketh away ;)

Well good luck to all, except thos who I am fighting, and may your AFKs be manageable!  See you on the other side...

10/27/13 Day 27:

6-9 AFK.  Go - go - Cube O' Doom!  Took 6 attacks to get my five wins including one marathon against Agent Wiseman who was packing the (1) The Cube O' Doom, (2) Vigilante Toolkit, (3) Signpost, and, if memory serves, (4) Biometric ID Card.  With Rescue and Thane.  He avoided so many attacks it took FOR-EVER and with so much healing he came back from the brink of death twice.  Good news is he packed almost no offense and while I had to recharge many times and lost a couple AFKs while fighting I did finally win!  I refused to give him the refresh win, so it was a moral victory!  This bodes ill for the next Tourney, and Agent Wiseman burn in heck, where ever you are.

10/26/13 Day 26:

3-5 AFK, guess the Cube o' Doom helped out.  Did 2 extra attacks last night.  Took 6 attacks to get my 5 wins.  The one loss was one of those battles where you understand it just is not going your way, really you dodge all 6 hits of that attack?  and the 2 hits of the follow up?  OK it's one of those battles.

Utility belt off the spinner so another minor upgrade to the Vault.  Now off to play for Lego Marvel Superheroes!

10/25/13 Day 25:

Another wonderful beating, dropped me into gold.  I am guessing this is the influx of the last minute "rushers" trying to power level their way into a bracket and meet hte attack minimums.  Went 4-11, another 100+ point loss.

Obivously took only 5 attacks to get my wins.  Got a superfulous Spacetime Shard off the spinner.  My cube should be done cooking at any moment and I recruited Moon Knight this morning and leveled him to 2.  So I ahve abandoned any hopes of that league above Diamond and am just focusing on staying in Diamond right now.

10/24/13 Day 24:

OOOooooooh yeah!  There's that beating I was expecting!  3-18 overnight!  Even with doing an extra 4 attacking wins last night, I was truly trashed.  Well in any event took me 7 attacks to get my 5 wins.  Considering throwing some Gold into Vault items to see if that can make me stick in the dreaded "V" league...

So got my last 5 shards, started the proto cube research, and have the last Moon Knight research to start immediately after.  Received a vault item off the spinner, so that helped a miniscule amount.

10/23/13 Day 23:

Again a slow AFK day, only 0-3... must be too many people doing Moon Knight tasks?  Did one extra attack last night in a vain attempt to try to forestall the expected beating.  Took me 7 attacks to get my 5 wins, with my two losses both coming to Agent Godoy whose team of Ares, Elektra, Kurzi tanking Infiltrator Agent ate me for lunch with ease both times.

On the plus side today's first 5 attacks allowed me to start the 2nd Moon Knight research so I will be ready to continue rocking and rolling tomorrow morning!  Also received 10 CPs off the PvP spinner, never a bad thing.

Of course this means I will be ready to rush to the final MK research tomorrow... plus my eventual 5 wins will allow me to start my Cube 'o Doom research... waht a research log jam, inconceivable!

10/22/13 Day 22:

Well had some nice, easy AFK, went 2-3.  Got 5 wins in 5 attacks, although a few took quite long.  Rescue + Omega + Agent with Completed Cube makes for a Looooooooooooooong battle, so much protecting and healing and evading.  Luckily Void Shield kept my team alive and I was able to focus fire down people and Desapir kept the heals in check.

Also best possible outcome, got a Spacetime Shard off he spinner so my reserach on my own cube will start on Thursday!  Now on to Moon Knight Tasks!

4-6 on Defense.  Really cannot complain I have had some good AFK this season.  Still got my 5 wins in 5 attacks, although one was by the skin of my teeth.  May try to load some more attacks tonight, we'll see how I feel.

Super Duper News got my 5th Rift Essence!  So now only 4 more days (or less if I grab a Shard off the spinner in the next 3 days!)  until I start researching my Cube O' Doom!

10/20/13 Day 20:

4-9 on Defense, got my 5 wins in 6 attacks.  Then I decided to try to tag on some extra attacks... and promptly lost my next two. /d'oh!  So i pressed on an tagged on a few more wins before calling it a day.

Best part was that I got my 4th Rift Essence off the spinner!

10/19/13 Day 19:

Another whirlwind day, Popcorn sales with the boy's Cub Scout Pack, Halloween party, Girls had cookie rally for Girl Scouts, hard to find time for 5 wins.  but I finally finished up here after 11 P ET.  Also finished up my lasst task for S.2C.2  so unlocked Uncanny Cyclops.

3-8 on defense,  5 wins on 5 attacks thankfully.  Actually got a Utility Belt off the spinner so first bonus item upgrade all season.

10/18/13 Day 18:

Was out all day so a total 5-17 AFK, interspersed with 3 wins in 4 attacks last night in order to fufill Season 2 Chapter 2 task.  Even with the 5 wins it was about a net 163 point loss... ouch.

In any event being beaten down so far allowed me to get 5 wins in 5 attacks.  Another Spacetime Shard off the spinner.

10/17/13 Day 17:

A more realisitc overnight performance last night, overall went 4-8.  I had also tagged on some extra attacks last night in order to complete one of my Season 2 Chapter 2 tasks.  Yay synergy!

It was the endless Attilan Agent (in various flavors) / Ares / Rogue fest today.  It only took 5 attacks to get my 5 wins (well actually 6 but one win ended in a CVE)  Received another 5 PvP challenge token off the spinner, but at least it was not as bad as yesterday's prize ;)

Holy cow!  Nothing like shaking up the playing field mid stream!  Rogue and Cyclops got adjusted.  We now have "empowered ISO", available for CP, Gold, and luck HB Spinners.   Heroes able to go up to level 13, and Season 2 Chapter 2 to distract us from farming!

Happy to report the Change in D-Team worked out well, at least for one night.  5-3 overnight. 

Still maintaing the flavor du jour on offense and it worked ok as I got my 5 wins in 5 attacks!  Oh and they adjusted the PvP spinner putting on useful bonus items, except for one small boo boo...  Yeah they took off the old 64 gold weapon and left on the useless Goblin Serum... so what did Skar get off the spinner today?  If you said Goblin Serum you are correct!  :P

10/15/13 Day 15:

Owie zowie!!  Went 2-10 overnight and lost 120 points to be booted back to Gold.  I guess I must have done something bad to get that pounding.  

Well the benefit was 5 wins in 5 attacks.  I was hoping to avoid the volume game until the last week or so but I guess it will have to start now. 

So, looking back at the last few days gave me reason to shake up the Defense team which I did so we will see if yesterday's investment will pay off (no, I did not equip it as I was not using a tanking agent previously)

Spacetime Shard off the spinner, SWMBO got garbage off hers she is still 0-5 on Rift Essences.

10/14/13 Day 14:

2-7 on Defense, and 6 attacks to get 5 wins.  Got a Spacetime Shard off the Spinner, plus picked up my 5 IF so I can stop farming.  Now just need some spinner luck and patience.  Worried about SWMBO as she has all her IF, but she is still 0-5 on Rift Essences, so she will have to bank 50G just in case.

I also picked up the Might of Attilan today with about 30 min to go as I finally got the watcher off the spinner 2 days ago...  I have not equipped it yet as I am doing ok on Offense, but I may try out the set on Defense.

10/13/13 Day 13:

2-2 on defenses, but that debt was paid by taking 10 attacks to get my 5 wins.  With so many people with the Attilan set I may need to go back to a stealthy / psychic team.

Got a 5 challenge token off the spinner and farmed up another IF, so just one more.

10/12/13 Day 12:

8-10 Defenses overnight and throughout the day.  Wow, cant argue with that!   I added one more attack by accident last night and then had 5 wins in 5 atttacks today, Everything is coming up Milhouse!

Still no luck on the Incursion front though, 0 fer 3 this morning. 

Goblin Serum off the spinner.

10/11/13 Day 11:

2-5 overnight with enough oomph to pound me back to Gold.  But the upside iwas 5 wins in 5 attacks but going to have to start stacking volume in order to maintain level as we approach the 2 week countdown.  

Got 10 gold off the spinner so we can hold that in our back pocket if I am short Rifts or Incursions when we come down to the wire.  On the plus side got another IF from farming today and a free reforge of the Shield Slugger :P

10/10/13 Day 10:

4-8 overnight on defense, not good but survivable.  6 attacks to get 5 wins.  Faced my first cube of doom today, so mark this date :P  Annoying as heck, I actually ended up winning if ONLY because the opposing Ares kept starting down my people when they ended up attacking my own side :P  Yay RNG!  

Another Hydra Ring off the spinner for my efforts, the RNG she giveth, she taketh away.

10/09/13 Day 9:

Defense slipping but still ok at 2-7.

Took 6 attacks to get 5 wins, saw some interesting teams today including P5 Nix with Mock, Mock killed ares before I ever got a turn...  but I still won somehow, well not "somehow", just Rogue.  Kree Speed + Tactician power + self heals + Void Shield goes a looooong way.  Not to mention I got extremely lucky when I killed the tanking agent and Nix did not rezz him.

Received an additonal Spacetime Shard off the spinner.  CVE cleared up after refresh overnight so I can famr again but still no joy from the RNG.

10/08/13 Day 8:

Defense is holding 6-11 last night... Less said about it the better for fear of jinxing it.

Got 5 wins in 5 attacks today... first time that has happened in quite a while.  My current problem is Incursions keep giving me CVE so no farming for me right now...  But on the plus side I received another Rift Essence off the spinner!

10/07/13 Day 7:

Wow defense is just crazy this season.  Only 7 and I went 5 - 2...  a winning record on defense?!  Cats and Dogs living together, real end of the world stuff...

But of course balance must be preserved so it took me 8 attacks to get my 5 wins.  But I will not fret as I scored a Rift Essence off the spinner!  Changed up the O team and it seems to be working, despite the 3 losses (one came before the change up and the other two I was way out vaulted in both and in one I swear every attack he made has both other team members follow up every time)  So cleansing breaths and back to farming the elusive Incursion Field!

10/06/13 Day 6:

Hmmm, must have just drawn the "One Quiet Night" card from Pandemic! yesterday as last night mt AFK was 6-10, no more 2 defense nights!  

6 attacks to get my 5 wins.  Let me tell you Nix may have been nerfed but that Phoenix Fire still packs a punch! Got another Soulfire Blade off the spinner.  Not having any luck with Incursions either... oh well still plenty of time.

10/05/13 Day 5:


Well all quiet on the western front, only 2  AFK last night, and I went 1-1.  Phoenix got nerfed pretty hard last night in the patch, glad I am not running my Wonderman WC Inf Nix team any more.  While I enjoyed stealthy attacks all over it took too long to get to the win.

Only took 6 attacks to get my wins today and got the Soulfire Blade off the spinner, woot-woot!  Of course now that Pheonix fire no longer applies Soulfire that decreases my overall interest, at least in PvP, it stll may be fun in PvE.

10/04/13 Day 4:

This does not bode well.  I know, I know, I often proclaim doom and gloom on my PvP blogs and often still finish fine (except for last season when I was accurate, woo hoo a first!)  But hear (read?) mea out:

1) AFK is getting back to form of last season going 0-5 last night.

2) While it only took me 5 attacks to get my 5 wins it was Looooooooooooooong.  one fight against Omega, Resuce and 3 of 4 Attilan set Agent took FOREVER!  Literally over 20 minutes.  I won, but there were so many protects and shields and heals...  the only reason I won was because we were roughly even on vault and I had a massive hero advantage.  This means, like last season, on the final night I will be losing 2-3 while winning 1 and that my friends is bad mojo.

Need to see if I can come up with a more high powered offense team, more blitz and less chess.  Or volume, massive, epic, biblical levels of volume...  Nope.  Not gonna happen.

Aaaaanywho, got another useless signet off the spinner, /raspberry.

10/03/13 Day 3:

...Aaaaaand the AFK dream is over.  1-5 over night.  Much more similar to last season where I could not get an AFK win to save my life (or my previous finish streak).

Took 7 attacks to get 5 wins.  One loss was a 40k Vault deficit + Hero disadvantage whuppin'.  Somebody got a late start :P  Challenge refill off the spinner.  At least that has the possiblity of being useful.  Went a little OCD yesterday and got myself to the research task on the C.O.D. (Cube O' Doom) task list so now it is just grinding mats (being the cheap bastard that I am)

10/02/13 Day 2:

OK delayed my attacks until I got some training done, hey I need all the help I can get!  Still took me 6 attacks to get 5 wins.  My only loss coming to a 20k+ 1st turn Phoenix Fire followed up by a 21 gun salute...  <cleansing breath>  Received a Hydra Signet Ring off the spinner... I have said it elsewhere here on the wiki, but this is major fail by Playdom.  Putting PvP Bonus items on the spinner like the HSR (1470/1470) that are INFERIOR to the current Spec Ops items purchaseable by silver and shield points (1617/1617) is just bad, I can't even sell the dang thing /facepalm.  Well maybe PD will patch in a new batch of vault items on the spinner... or maybe they will nerf the Vigil of Attilan and I will then cry.

So AFK action is very heavy but that is to be expected at the very start and at the very end I would think.  I have a kooky - crazy AFK team that appears to be doing ok, they went 16-8... yes you are reading that correct 24 defenses and my defense team won 75%,  I do NOT expect this to continue but I will take it!

10/01/13 Day 1:

Spent some silver and SP to do some minor upgrade to my vault, running with a non level 12 team of Ares and Elektra combined with the Cruel Glaive I got off a boss spinner today.  Works well, except when it don't.

Not so sure about the new loading screen. I liked the vault and hero compare prior to combat as it gave me a mental footing going in.  Also it appears that there is an obvious bug as all defenses now show you as your opponent.

So in typical Playdom style, I completed my 5 wins and was greeted with a refresh screen so I have no clue what, if nayhting I got off the spinner as it never loaded.  And the winner is... my win did not count!  yay for that.  Went and got another win and got a Rift Essence off the spinner.  7 Attacks to get 5 wins and 7 defenses while playing (3-4).
