it feels pretty good being consistently in the top 25 in puzzle fighter and drifting in and out of the top 10, and the 20% of the time i beat the #1 ranked player feels pretty alright too especially since my servbot has been stagnated at level 8 basically forever since every time you unlock a new character from one of your random daily chests the game is like SHIT, WE NEED TO BALANCE THINGS OUT!! ALL YOUR RANDOM LEVEL UPS ARE GONNA GO TO THIS NEWB NOW which basically guarantees your highest level character ain't gettin' shiiiiit and the top guy is like level 11s across the board but fuck the more i talk about the card system and levels i hate this game so much

but then i fuckin just



there is literally no goddamn dopamine hit in my gaming time that can even come close to every fucking time i finish a match with king servbot

it is like three times as long in game as it is in that video

just motherfucking squeaking your stupid m. bison face forever

I actually picked up Puzzle Fighter a few days ago. It's got a bad habit at the beginning of 'hey, you're in Rookie but on a win streak. Here's a guy 1,000 points above you in Super Silver, have fun!' and him being level 8 across the board and me being level 3 means he just beats me like a drum. I will say those times it puts me up against someone a few hundred points above me and I wail all over them is fun, though.

truthfully while levels DO matter, they don't matter that much compared to knowing your gameplan; someone like five or six levels above you is gonna have a pretty hefty HP and damage boost above you, but if you fill their fucking board with gems before they can pull off whatever they're building toward you can still ruin their day. the first time i had "win 10 online matches with an all-blue team" as my quest, my jill was level 6 or so with my chun-li and ryu at level 5 each and i was going up against the 8s and 9s you mostly see in ultra gold

sure i ended up losing like three hundred points by the time i finished the quest, but i finished the quest! and had a much better understanding of how to use 'bookmarking' with jill to pump her damage boost in a way that felt like my usual servbot gameplan.

the other nice thing about mismatched pairings is if you lose to someone way out of your league (literally) you lose like 10 RP; if you win, you gain like 30 and they lose the same amount.

also as of this post i'm ranked #3 out of everyone, at the top of platinum (there are only two folks in super-plat at the moment). i have a pretttty bad feeling that in the long run the game's going to have an unfortunate situation, because you get more rewards from honda boats / season chests the higher your ranking is, which just keeps lifting you up above the people who haven't or can't reach those rankings. that's probably their way of tightening the screws to get people to plunk down more money.

every time i beat jinrai's (the #1 player) ass feels pretty amazing though since i'm running an 8/8/7 team versus his 11/11/11 team, but in fairness morrigan is just as much of a glass cannon as servbot so it's literally always just a race to see which one of us blows the other one up first in a single combo.
