I still have yet to fight Jade in the secret battles, but from what I experienced in battling Smoke, Reptile, and Noob, they just seem way too easy IMO.
same hereI have only fought Noob and Smoke. Smoke is cake, but Noob's extra health/my low damage give him quite the advantage. But he just keeps spamming teleport, so easy win there.
Getting to Jade and Reptile is just WTFBBQ.
I just use the method of restarting the Ladder Mode until I'm at the Pit stage on the first match, If no shadows happen to appear....just pause and choose Player Select. Keep repeating this process until you see the shadows fly across the moon. Works like a charm!
Anyone who thinks noob is easy must be god himself. Noob should be arrested and put on trial for spamming that teleport. You can block it, but he will just do it again and again until he nails you with it.
