Since I quit, thought I might as well post this here. Should've posted earlier but didnt care much when I was already way over 300 1st places (nearing 350) by the time Zack! posted his results. Anyway..
Final battle results:
Notable battles/battlers - Dana, Demon, Dizzy, \FORSAKEN/, Juste, Zack!
Dana - high evp, anti j/z, lv20 shifta made him incredibly tough, esp when hes equipped with good armour/shield and a strong weapon such as Heaven striker and saber with good %s and atp boost. Tough to melee, and very risky to exchange tech fire with ramarl's HS shots, esp with ranger wall and heaven striker special. Very tough to beat.
Demon - Noobish at first, crying when he got beat by some hu, then i started training him, and he got exceedingly better :lol:. Deadly with his 50% hit Vyaja, and we were dead even on our last match.
Dizzy - Racaseals have the highest def in the game, so a lv200 one with good shield and armour is incredibly hard to damage, even my 100% machine vivienne merely tickled this freakbot.. equipped with high resists they are real tanks that are tough to knock down and take huge amount of damage.
Dr Hell - one of the toughest fonewyns. Has equipps that brings his resists and def to ridiculous levels (for a newman fo), adept at cycling around his techs, while using appropriate tech boosters (indra, agni, merges)
\FORSAKEN/ - kinda like a lower level, but more aggressive version of diZZy. really showcased what racaseals are capable of with high level equips. beaten ironfox and divinedart, and almost got me despite the 25+ lv difference. if he had slightly better tactics..brr...
Juste - another good hucast, has excal, but is more deadly when he has his Vyaja equipped.
Popuri - armed with the barest of equipment, she was also one of the toughest fomarls there. zumirian enhanced zonde is deadly and annoying if you dont know where its coming from.
Zack! - annoyingly enthusiastic, but cant fault his perseverance - even when he didnt know that %s play a factor in battle (I remember informing him of that and him being surprised) he still got far in tournaments and matches. With High % native excal, along with another excal with hit % made him as bad as Ironfox
Also Debaser - i think the 1st lvl195+ ramarl i fought, proved to be very tough, hard to lay hit with excal. James - cant fault his persistence.
Ironfox - Sange & Yasha 20% hit, with BOVN and that huge hucast atp advantage to start with made ironfox the most daunting of foes, having hp reduced to 25% (or less) from full - with one hit - is not uncommon, even when this guys jellend. Beating this guy always take everything i got, down to last monomate and star atomiser.
Best Battle Classes in Order
1) Joint 1st - Ramarls - highest evp, and 2nd highest ata gives ramarls huge advantage over HUs, with lv20 techs theyre pretty much an uber class.
1) Joint 1st - Racaseals - higherst def, The real tanks, with decent equips theyre tough to put down, with high level equips they could be harder than ramarls, esp with their decent ata and evp.
2) Hucasts/Humars - They when both are played aggressively with good equips, hucasts tougher due to higher hitting power.
3) Fomars/Fomarls - good mix of melee ability and techs makes it hard to prepare against these classes.
4) Fonewyns - can be really good with good tech boosters and high def, like dr hell was able to demonstrate.. or with uber ubers like vance.
5) Hunewearls - mixed bag, can potentially be like ramarl with their lv20 techs, and higher hitting power, and decent equips. only one hune seemed to do well, but sadly in a dubious way. good legit hune players like uriko and malice though.
Most recent notable battles
Was out of practice and decided to start battling again to try bump my wins up, cronus guys took me by surprise, with even some low levels weilding ubars with 90-100%s
Vance and his combination of ubars got me first, not good with his excal and me wearing crimson coat and attribute wall (well thats part of my anti-newman fo gear).. then i decided to mix up my anti-hu armour with my anti-fo gear.. resulting in loveheart + 3 p/resists and safety heart combo.. lovehearts 294 def (when next to male) proved useful to counter excal, along with safety heart's evp, which negates v502 increasing the chance of excal special from hitting me.
fought and got beat by a lv200 ramarl who had a vivi similar to mine (100% native), not as badly as by Vance, but figured him out by 2nd match which i just barely lost.. and i realised I was wearing my 235def aurafield instead of my 280 one. This guy never wanted another match with me afer the last one but at least his friend, HiFOO - with his lv200 ramarl, was more enthusiastic, and made up for the other ramarl's reluctance.
After assessing and training HiFOO for a bit, i let him use my 100%native vivi, which made match similar to what it wouldve been with the other ramarl, only HiFOO is better with melee and HS, had considerably stronger def and higher resists with standstill shield. With my 280def aura on i managed to win our matches, then i used my 235 def aura to see how it goes, and i got killed twice.. I put on my 280def aura again (along with rupika) and then i won with 2 kills, lol 100 def difference makes a lot of difference (with deband 30 factored in i suppose). But HiFOO's last battle with me was quite close, with 1 kill each, i won out on knock down points, laggy match too.
Best recent matches were with a lv140-144 ramarl ([alys]) who performed incredibly considering the level difference. someohow outpointing me most times, with combination of melee and techs. even managed to kill me once and nearly beat me - i guess his 100% native vivi served him well. Hucast called SE - with 90% native :):):)ai - proved a bit tough too.
Kranz was reasonably difficult with ramar ata and a strong enough wep. a well timed sol combined with well timed attacks almost got me. Finally nave - new owner of Zack's 35% hit excal, proved one of the more difficult fomars. Was unsure bout excal so i decided to avoid melee and rely on techs. just managed to win at the last second with a laconium enhanced foie kill.
