For a brief, glorious moment, I managed to get to the top of the Admiral Division in the arena

It probably took me longer than it should have (started playing November last year), but I finally got there.

My crew are:

CMD slot: Dahar Master Kor. Has a +1500 crit rating bonus with a 3 sec initialisation.
ENG slot: Undercover O'Brien. Has a +18,000 crit bonus with a 6 sec initialisation.
SEC slot: Covert Operative Leland. Does 400% damage with an 8 sec initialisation.
MED slot: Grathon Tolar. He brings no equipment bonus due to not having a medical specialisation, but he brings a +9 boost to accuracy which usually surpasses any evasion boost the enemy might have. He initialises in 8 seconds.

Tactics: use the crit rating, crit bonus and accuracy boost then blast them with 400% damage on 8 seconds, then activate Imperial Efficiency to speed up attack. If that hasn't won it, then on second 10, activate Rotate Warp Nacelles to reduce any incoming damage and activate Assault Team to deal boarding damage. By second 12 most enemies are destroyed.

I was using Defiant Commander Worf with his +2000 crit rating bonus and his +6 accuracy, along with The President of Earth for an extra +10'000 crit bonus, but both these characters have a 12 second initialisation and about half the time I was usually destroyed before they could get activated. Hence, the move to Dahar Master Kor and Grathon Tolar, who both initialise a lot sooner.

    Congrats. How long did you stay at first? I have been at first at the end of arena one day and been at 3300 the next day. Admiral Division competition is fierce.

    Thanks, Apollo. I think I was top only for a few minutes. I checked back after 20 mins and I was down to rank 33. I'm somewhere around 500 now!

    Yeah, that drop can be precipitous, for sure. Since I've been fortunate enough to hit the "trifecta" (aka "hat trick") a couple of times now — that's getting #1 in all 3 divisions at the same time — at this point I try not to end the day above the 200s or so, at least in Admiral div. Seems like you can maintain a middle-high rank like that a lot longer than if you're further up in the rankings.


    Edit: Congratulations, btw, though! 🖖


    Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

    Well done! I hit that a few days ago by accident. I was playing against the #2 spot, and someone else must have taken out the #1 spot at the same time, bc it gave me the #1 rank after that battle. LOL

    That may have been me. I took out the #1 spot but at the exact same time somebody else was apparently beating me because I "won" but FELL from 3 to 27!
  • I was once there for 10 minutes cause it was late at night... So no competition :blush:

    I do that almost every day, because the place drop is brutal and I want to be safe regarding rewards.

    Congrats, OP! It took me months to get there.

    But @Data1001 's strategy is similar to mine. I try not to get too close to #1 because lots of people try for that. I just want the schematics. :)
