Global Tournament Tips

To start with, the tactics for the standard Global Tournament (also known as New Season Tournament) are similar to the Classic Challenge and the Grand Challenge. Therefore, you should continue to use the same strategy as in standard tournament matches. Since the card levels will be at the standard level, the high card levels will not make much sense.

  1. Pick the right deck – Please do this. If you don’t choose the right deck, you’re going to have a big problem getting a win. You may not follow the meta, but at least you can look the deck I shared above.
  2. Train yourself – Once you’ve found yourself a deck, you should try to master it. When you lose a match in this tournament series (a certain amount), you are out of the tournament.
  3. Don’t try hard – Although a deck is enormous, it is possible that you cannot get results. You may not be able to achieve the same performance, especially when using decks used by YouTube publishers. So I suggest you choose a deck of cards you like and use.
  4. Try to relax – Losing a match is never a pleasant thing. If you get two consecutive losses, I suggest you take a break. You should relax and then resume the tournament.
  5. Check your device – Do not forget it. If you have internet problems, you shouldn’t play. After playing a few games, you should take a break if the device is too hot. There is no need to risk possible wins.

Global Tournaments is a competitive environment. You have to choose decks that can keep up with this competition. I hope the decks I listed here can help you. I hope you get plenty of wins. You can share your opinions and questions with me by commenting.
