In HotR, there's been something interesting: the Masters league I was in only had four players, and had four NPCs. This, with me at level 20 heroes, got me into the top-3, promotion range. So right now, I'm about to begin the Champion's League for my very first time. When just a couple goes ago, I was near the bottom of the Masters league. Really moving my way up, and that applies to my ranking, too. I might drop into the 3000s occasionally, but I'm mostly seeing 2700s and 2900s. Plus, my guild is currently climbing up the ranks. It's on the 13th page of guilds right now, and keeps on moving up and up. (Mind you, I'm a one-person guild, which I imagine for some of these guilds is quite rare. And even of those that are, I imagine the majority of them have been there rather a while.)
They had a black Friday event which gave me a couple of cool helms. One I won't be able to use any time soon (it's level 30; the best I have is 20 going on 21), but the other is something that Carpeia is inches away from getting equipped with: a really powerful helm, boosting all stats ridiculously high and offering fire attack/resist. (Thus, Carpeia. Almost gave it to Edith, before I noticed it boosted strength and didn't boost intelligence.) I got a T3 hero card from it, too, a powerful card that I don't much care for but is nice to have all the same.
Basically, things are going very well in that game.
