Not an exact quote, but I've seen something similar (1700/1800) mentioned every now and then. The thing is, 2/3 of the time my opponents play Bringer & friends, undeads, or pixies, and most of the remaining 1/3 are EN, Urgrant, starmander, serpents etc. The last time I played against another starter was the week "take to the sky" was introduced.
So my request is: does anyone have replays of starters (with slight modding) beating these metas? or even beating anything played by someone with decent RP?
Personally interested in seeing falk starter, but I think a collection of various starter replays would help all new players. The stickied set of replays vs other starters only helps in crest; once in folrart you almost never see another starter.
