I'm so annoyed that I don't even want to pick up my phone and log in to look. So, right when I was beginning to get my faith back that Mobage was going to scale rewards properly they took it my faith and bashed it against a rock.
The least they could do is send us all some lipstick so we can make ourselves pretty before they fuck us. Come on.
Just looking at the prizes was so discouraging that I'm wondering why I'm participating. In the end, I participate for my Order, but for those who don't have a good Order...what's the point? To gain some HR that are worth about 1HP each? For the LCP that will probably yield rares worth a combined total of less than 1HP?
Every week they release a new 'mystery box' to push card art and more powerful of the same cards as before. Every other week they alter between Raid Events that are getting progressively worse and Holy Wars where the payout for what you spend it just awful.
Now that my rant is over:
I've heard a lot of Orders intend to just wait until the last day to participate at all. This way they will be matched up against weaker players and they won't have to spend all weekend playing. Fortunately Shingeki and Chain Bonus allows players to accumulate points so quickly that its possible to attain a solid rank doing this. If you're a weaker Order and were counting on a last day push, I would recommend doing it the day before last.
I have also heard of several Orders going for the victory badges/gold coins and pushing with those in mind. This probably isn't a bad strategy but it's a high risk one because while some players may profit doing it this way, others might lose their ass depending on how much luck they have. But it's not a bad strategy.
Finally, A LOT of orders are opting not to participate. This is normally all talk since they will all generally spend at least 20HP or so just because. If you don't feel you can have fun in this HW, I recommend that you limit each member of your Order to something like 20-30HP each. You won't rank high but you may still get something decent in card packs and enjoy yourself.
