BR advice

SDS

For those of you who make deep BR runs like 9-12 wins. Do you do it all in one sitting or do you space it out over days? Also do you always play till you lose 2 or do you restart after a loss? I'm looking to try and play more BR so looking for any extra tips.

SDS

Do it in 1 sitting, especially if you're in the flow and inside edge is active. What might be a great draft today, could be a very average draft tomorrow if inside edge is down for all your players (or some of your key players). I reset when I lose 1 game, unless I'm close to 9 and the diamond players have some value.

Easiest when you get a few of the boosted cards and then you play it all before their boost goes down. I have a team w miggy and Adam's right now

Also have to consider luck, and this isn’t a complaint you’ll need luck on your side to go 12-0. Been that way since I started in 16.

It always seems like the happier I am with my draft, the worse the run.

Wild, I usually keep going until I lose but I'll keep entries from 1-2 days ago as well. I agree that Inside Edge can break you but right now the 12 win rewards are better than the 12-0 rewards

As noted already--- best to attempt in one sitting (or at least within the same day) to take advantage of IE boosts/supercharges. I have a tendency to get my 2nd loss at night and start a new draft only to realize I need to log off to sleep for work in the morning...come back and that decent silver I got has a -10/-10 vs righties the next day....

EDIT: Also sometimes when your just in the zone, taking a break will kill that rhythm and ruin a good run.

I tend to play play out my 2 losses early in the program because I'm looking to get the missions done for progress and if I can get to 9 wins, I'll take a free diamond (plus 9 wins is a big 10 point boost to the program).

I also dont re-draft even if my team is cheeks like the really good players do. I'm not good enough to go flawless consistently (or at all) with a stacked team so may as well try and progress as much as possible.
