I am not being over reactive one bit, based on your lengthy reply I would say it was you that was being so.First off, don't be so thin-skinned and over-reactive.
Secondly, take the time to read my words properly, rather than just knee-jerk and you will find that they make more sense. I specifically did not say you were a bad dueller and only drew attention to some undeniable data from the ranking tables. You were the one who claimed to be a "worthwhile" dueller without any evidence to support this claim.
In Arizona you have the max AP & SP possible from levelling, in which premium features have clearly paid a part. It's probably fair to assume that you have enjoyed attribute advantages over most of your duelling opponents throughout, as well as faster access to better equipment. That's all part of the game but isn't it fair to query on what basis you rate yourself as "worthwhile" given that your duelling ranking is fairly modest (100+)?
Granted, you have completed a large number of duels, but for modest experience. If you have premium regeneration rate and choose much weaker opponents this is not that hard to achieve.
Most fo my duels have been against folk of around equal level as from lvl 60-99 is when I accrued most of my wins against equal lvl players (+/- 5-10 levels) so I can claim to be worthwhile, not awesome by any means. And really what can I do to prove I am worthwhile, you want me to post every duel I have ever taken part in?
To begin with I was only replying to Beans post about dueling not counting on premium worlds where AP/SP can be bought, I was merely saying this is not the case in 99% of players.
