As an old 0.3% Senior Tortoise grinder, who attained a cumulative 7-win card + many ❌s, here’s my take on my experience this weekend… 1. Lag / Latency + inexplicable hit registration issues (for my weapons) + invincible OHK warriors who also appeared to have incredible pre-fire psychic insights + weapons that could shoot through walls and around corners…etc…were very much in evidence. 2. Many matches I played were quite tight, and were fun to play - regardless of the outcome! I learned some new tricks; and gave as good as I got! I even clutched a few rounds here and there. 3. Some matches our team was dead within seconds out of the gate from gilded flea-hopping stompers brimming with special skills and powers - as described in item # 1 above. 🤔 4. Lots of matches I was ‘carried’ by real top tier duos. Here, I played the best strategy I could to assist where I could, eg, bait players, go grab the point, lay down withering fire (with my popcorn firing guns), etc. I also had some good moments, and an occasional clutch to win a 4:4 match! 🥳 5. I played on H/W/T and secured the armour sets for all, and a boatload of weapons as well, plus a few engrams held over till the next Trials event happens. This was my aim…and my grrrrrind! 😁 Overall, I had more fun than not. For grinders like me, a 7-win accumulated card should get me a Lighthouse ticket…because it’s players like me that feed the stompers and other hardcore wannabes - and, until the system is changed, the majority of other Casual weekend warriors will just stay away, like since way back when! 👈 A tiered, laddered system, based on a player’s game history and score of W:L would be a good metric. Also, all players begin in the shallow end…go 7-wins flawless and the player/team moves into deeper water…and so on. If a carry team duo appears more than twice with another ‘carry’ in the shallow end, they are automatically moved to deeper waters or disqualified for the event’s duration. IP addresses might be used to identify such duos. Only the best will make it to the deepest waters…as signified by the Black Scarab emblem/shader or the like. And the top players / team with the most wins in the deepest waters get their names indelibly etched on the Wall of Fame in the tower! Everyone wins. Everything is fair. Trials wins! 👍 Ease springs! 🫡
