I wasn’t really looking forward to the Pet Battle PVP matches after the first one I did literally killed me and then later on live, my pets lost so I vowed to try it again when my pets were maxed out. So after getting my accomplishments yesterday, I wanted to try a Pet Battle or two to see how my team fared with a combination of my five level 25 pets.
Unfortunately, I lost the first three so I swapped out one pet for another and queued again. With the new team, I proceeded to win the next match. This set me up for the first win without letting any of my pets die. If I could do the same for the next four matches, I would have it in the bag. However, the next match resulted in a premature loading screen when the opponent left soon after starting. I queued again getting the same team but a different avatar.
Queuing a third time gave me a new opponent, although he forfeit the battle as well. One more and I would have it. So what do I get but the same team again with a different avatar… they leave again – Déjà vu much? Hmm… I wonder if they do this to make it appear like you’re battling different people. However, the pet names were a dead giveaway.
One more win without any pet dying and I will have that achievement. The next team actually stayed for the match but I won with No Time To Heal. Woot!
This made me want to keep going… four more wins and I would have another achievement. Talk about a winning streak! With the number of teams leaving early, I actually had to battle for win number nine but it was a comfortable win. One more was all I needed… WOW, same team… they even played predictably in the same two initial rounds of turns but I managed to beat them again giving me the other achievement I was hoping for – Pet Brawler.
When I checked my achievement list, I was kind of disappointed to see Experienced Pet Brawler next on the list. My first thought was to take my time although maybe I should see how long my winning streak can last.
Wish me luck :P
