I finished in the top 20% of the contest. Since double drops was running, I bought stam up to 100 cost, so 9 buys each day. I am up to 21 fully geared O6, one fully geared O5, and Storm Drake is 47 diplomas away from being 5/6 O6 (with the one missing an O4 piece, of course).
The war modifier and minions this week are awful.
I have decided to give up on this account. Running through stuff manually every day was painful, to the point where it was actually starting to make me dislike the game even more. It just isn't fun to spend an hour manually raiding the campaign. I actually began to dread normal double drops because then I felt compelled to hit the normal campaign instead of elite and it took much longer, not to mention having to buy stamina for those events. Expedition was a terrible chore, charging up multiple heroes in the early stages and then struggling anyway to finish the last stages (I actually forgot to do it a couple days). Crypt remains a chore on all servers, doing it here just added to the painfulness. Coli and FP were totally stagnant, which was fine, but those are 2 of the modes I actually still enjoy on S1. Here, I couldn't play them.
And, of course, the account swapping bug just made this even more difficult. Having to close and re-open the game every time I switched accounts ... just awful.
So instead I downloaded Fire Emblem and have been enjoying that much more.
