I pick a target and go after them until I have three or four wins or they are inside the honor gap and trying means losing any gains.

I am up to almost 900 wins. I decided not to bother with rank in HoF until I catch up to some of them in level. Because when I'm the lowest level player for 10-20 ranks below me... I'm a target.

That's a good strategy used by many. I've been having some trouble in my area, definitely became a target recently. More so since I have a few epics that everyone needs for their Sticker Album!

I have a paltry 1600 wins.

I've been getting targeted for stickers. I don't care much though since most of them either haven't got a chance (pleasant inbox full of green messages) or the others are to far above me. I'm more or less satisfied with where I am in the HOF.

Belligerent players will naturally rise until they reach a Rank where they can no longer win.

The general idea in this game is that when you rise above your 50% win position, you will lose more often and the other players will push you back down, but there is very little aggression in this game, so what really happens is that you sit there waiting for someone to notice you're easy pickings, but no one ever does because they don't attack anyone.

And that is exactly what has happened to itzKoopa. You're L192 surrounded by 198-215's. Way above your pay grade. You can get rare wins against some of them, I'm sure, but you'll be doing a lot fo attacking for losses to get those few wins.

You know my suggestion: put your weapon in your backpack and ask people to attack you to get you back to a Ranking where your win:loss ratio is much better.

You forgot the third option, spending far too much time finding players that I can probably beat because their potions fell off and they're not TOO much higher than me.

Sounds about right, I am constantly surrounded by people 20+ levels above me, though I tend to close that gap fairly quickly

itzKoopa, that's still only a temporary measure to continue the rise to where you can't even achieve that goal.

I've given my solution elsewhere. Always attack as close to 950 honor below you as possible. If you win, you gain 20-35 honor. If you lose, you lose 200. You will eventually reach a point in the HoF where your win:loss ratio will be about 7:1, where the honor gain from your multiple wins equals the honor loss from you loss. If someone more powerful attacks you and you lose, all the better, it results in more easy wins. You'll be under-ranked, but not severely like me. The only person that cares about your ranking, unless you're in the top 15, is you.

Oh, I know. I'll definitely get my butt handed to me shortly.

Nah, I am sure people are too afraid to attack you
