Just finished placements. Looking for advice
Little background. I've played Catan in real life for ~5 years so I know what I'm doing.
I found Dylighted's videos on youtube so downloaded CU on steam, bought the base game.
I won all 5 placements and placed 1038 ELO in Platinum. I have no idea how good/bad this is and would really appreciate someone providing me with some context.
I'm looking to join a competitive guild if anyone knows any.
I'm not exactly sure how to join seasons and don't currently see a button for it. Could someone please explain how to join this?
Lastly, is there anything else I should be getting/doing through the game that's common knowledge for most players? (e.g. buy certain expansions)
Platinum is pretty good, and there are several competative guilds, they usually ask for ELO above 1000 points.
Seasons are anounced a few weeks before the event. Then you will be able register for participation. A button will appear during the registration phase. It usually costs money.
To participate, it might be useful to own Seafarers as well as Cities & Knights extensions.
But before you buy it, it would be fair to warn you that the Catan Universe servers sometimes don´t work as expected. Often players get kicked out of the game due to no fault of their own (or their technical setup, which might be first rate)
This will cause them to loose ELO , and it cannot be re-awarded to make things right again. This has caused a lot of grief to competative players.
I've been playing Catan for over 20 years and am trying to upload a strategy guide to the play store for a couple bucks. It's pretty in-depth. I'm also starting a guild on this site called "Pro League" if you're interested.
