David vs. Goliath Victories

Just curious what everyone's David vs. Goliath Moments looked like.
My largest differential amount came yesterday when my maxed out 3* Drift took down a 4* Prowl in Arena play.
I'm not sure what the tale of the tape was for Prowl before the Class Advantage kicked in, but my Drift normally sits at 1,231.
But even with the Class Advantage, I don't think 770 point difference is nothing to balk at.

Curious to see what mountains you guys were able to conquer and by how much, thanks!

    Mine was a 2 star Arcee vs. an r4 Motormaster in Arena last year when I was still using sandbag teams.

    Wow, these are all an inspiration. That 1,592 point differential between Windblade and the S-1000 would've had me throwing in the towel thinking it's a gimme for the opponent.

    I must REALLY suck at gameplay too (just to add to my other list of shortcomings) because in Arena play, as soon as my opponent stacks up with a 400+ differential... I LOSE 98% of the time. Whelp... let's see if I can muster taking down a bigger Goliath today... i'm inspired!

    85 hits in a row?! I freak out when I combine a chain of 30+. I probably would've lasted all of 2 min. tops in this specific fight. I wonder how long THIS battle lasted?

    So... what we're witnessing here is someone (who had been born in the 70's) that could've easily set Arcade world records in Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, etc...

    I’ve done 200+ ;) it’s easier when you’re fighting a high rating bot, a Goliath. E.g. rok

    Wow you are a ninja, that requires some skill and talent dude.

    So I just recorded a typical "Goliath" fight that I tend to lose. Mirage vs. Megatron
    I'm beginning to think I'm handicapped by my hardware as you might notice some stuttering.
    (Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime)

    Any tips aside from "wait for an attack, dodge and counter.." because I AM trying to do that...

    I mean wow! You didn't even take a blocked range attack not once?! Going untouched is just impossible for me...

    new best on mix and annoying fight vs mv1 electro resistance without any shock damage
  • No screenshot, but one of my best was my rank 2 4* Shockwave taking down a rank 5 4* Bludgeon. With 2/3 health bar to spare.

    Just as a general rule of thumb, in arena especially, you should always consider yourself to have a good chance as long as your bot is at least 50% of their bot's rating. Even if you aren't good enough for that to be the case, the differential is never based on a linear number, it is based on %.

    So a 200 pi bot should have a similar difficulty in beating a 400 pi bot as a 2000 pi bot has with 4000.

    This was the first "hard" match of that arena series. I had zoned out and was playing without really thinking, and when I realised the match had been going on forever, i looked and saw I was about to win with a 1* bot.

    So I got the shot!

    The sheer effort/reward ratio makes me think that the points you earn could use some multiply factor based on successful hits.

    I don't get this in a sense that as soon as the opponent goes full red bars, they initiate it and it's over for me.
