My Crowning Achievement!

Most people love Fridays and this Friday was extra special because I got my first Ranking Dungeon Crown! I have constantly floated around 2-4% in all the previous ranking dungeons as I lack the ideal teams required for 1%. It has generally been both Shiva Shiva D and Ra Ra Dragon Dragon dominating the charts; however, with the Athena Ranking dungeon, I only had to compete against Shiva Dragons Shiva D which removed some of my competition. The dungeon also favoured brute speed over combos and this plays into one of my strengths as I am able to manipulate orbs quickly and plan my path with minimal thinking.

What perhaps makes this victory sweeter is that I used a somewhat unconventional team and had to be quite creative in order to compete with an unconditional 25x multiplier. You can read more about the strategy I used HERE.

Hopefully everyone else is having a Fantastic Friday and I cannot stop saying “I have a hat / I have a crown” while mimicking a hat placing action to anyone I encounter in the real world (which is thankfully very few people). I am now regretting my initial starter dragon choice as blue is my favourite colour and wonder if I could change it somehow…

Happy Puzzling!

  1. Congratulations! Between your crown and setsu’s top 10 finish, it seems like those who are making meaningful contributions to the community are getting some well-deserved rewards. Enjoy your new fancy hat!

  2. Big congrats and big kudos for not using a cookie cutter JP Shiva Dragon team that a lot of top ranking players resorted to! DMeta is awesome and it’s good to see her getting represented.

    1. Thank you! Dark Metatron is very underrated and she does deserve more attention/popularity! The thing about Shiva Dragon is that it makes ranking dungeons easier and is why most people default to him to reach a high score

  3. Woo! Congrats! That must feel amazing! (I’d insert a .gif of the BBC Sherlock version of Moriarty in his crown here if I could as it feels appropriate 🙂 )

    1. Haha thank you! I am going to presume you have seen the series so I won’t be able to spoil it for you….

      I feel more like how Sherlock leaps off the building, swings through the glass window and kisses Molly at the moment =D

      1. I have indeed and that was a truly awesome moment (that whole episode was wonderful). I expect that someday when I make the top 1% (it will happen! I need a lot more skill but it will happen!) I’ll feel similarly 😉
