Hi everyone! What's does everyone think of the Death Deckathalon event so far? I'm enjoying it. What's your favorite treasure card to use during this event?

Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to.

I am really enjoying the challenge! Its been a long time since I thought about using those spells in that way! I am using mostly Imp and Treant and relying on my may cast pet for blades, but I can't get past the fourth stage. Any ideas?

I've been doing it casually. I've been doing the typical recommended strategy, which is use Nature's Wrath on single-monster fights and Meteor Strike when there's more than one monster. It works quite well.

What I like about this event is that it's completely different from anything else in the game. I also like the idea behind it- that everyone stands on (almost) equal "ground" as you don't get any benefits from clothing and levels. I found the battles difficult at first, but it gets better after a couple of tries and after figuring out which spells to put in your deck.

I enjoy the aspect of working your way up by earning runes to craft the decks; it's more fun than if we were just to earn more progress points. However, in my opinion it get's a little repetitive as we first have to craft the first deck, then the second and so on ... to finally craft a better deck. I do understand that the difficulty is supposed to gradually increase each time though.

I've also got an opinion on the leaderbord/tournament style aspect. Already by the first day of the event, a few people had managed to earn and incredible amount of points. I have no idea how they managed this (hehe) and I'm not sure if I'll find out. At this point the leading player has passed 6000 points. I don't think it is unreasonable to say that this is unrealistic for most players, and at least for me it takes some of the fun away from the event knowing that I will have no chance in winning the top rewards. I'm sure that at least a few other people feels the same away. But I guess there is nothing that can be done (or maybe even should be done) about this, but I still felt that it is something that needs be mentioned.

Overall I enjoy the event and I'm trying for that hamster pet at 525 points.
