I will go with C Tiburtus - Wilbur - C Wu Kong synergy defense.


I would normally have gone Wilbur tank for this, but with ow badly he did for me in the recent buff booster I think I will use my Mist instead as there should be less LB purples.

Current thought is

I may still switch out Tiburtus for Proteus and Colen for Wilbur though

I was thinking: li as tank; to cut mana. Or put her in flank, to fire just as you have filled your mana? Then circus-dudes, sonya and tibs.

Plenty of other options though…
Mist (LB); Scarlett (LB);

I’m keeping it simple for this tournament. I did specifically emblem up my Sapphire for this tournament, but I was always planning to emblem her up just never gotten to it yet. I do have costume Tiburtus and enough emblems to max him but I need my food elsewhere! Briefly considered flanking with Carol+20 in stead of Wilbur for the family bonus but Carol has been very underwhelming for me so I noped out of it quickly.

Amentrine left for the dispell and Mist also on the left so if Mist and Wilbur fire in the same turn the attacking team will not get the shared damage.

I will try this…

Any suggestion?

c.Kiril + c.Sonya would make a short work on your team…

Add in Grimm plus either a yellow or purple two and you are toast!

Yes, since all element is allowed. There is no defense that can’t be countered with specific.

Well, if you can charge average of 2 colors before the defense heroes can fire, you will always win, no matter what the defense team is. Anyway, you have to remember that this is bloody battle. C Kiril doesn’t heal. C Kiril + C Sonya may make you survive longer but without dispell, it isn’t easy to take down my defense if there is share damage. My x2 AoE also do pretty big overall damage :slightly_smiling_face:

Anyway, I will not gonna say it is unbeatable but it is the best choice for me that I ever know :slightly_smiling_face:.


I am not saying that your team is wrong! But c.Kiril is a natural counter to Wilbur… flips the defense buff…with c.Sonya dispelling your Wilbur’s share damage your team becomes a huge pile of HP points.

Even normal Kiril and normal Sonya plus Grimm would kill your team with just 10 tiles. And the attacker can stack against your flanks more efficiently… yellow or purple.

The problem is you’re running Kiril who is just a meatbag with the better half of his special not working.

I fully disagree! His special is so beneficial that even in Bloody Battle he is usable if not staple… same for c.Rigard…

Healers are not for every format. I would not use Kunchen in Bloody Battle for instance! But Kiril’s defense and attack buff or debuff far outweighs the fact that his heal goes waste

Any input on this def would be fully appreciated

Grimm C shouldn’t be on the wing.

So, this is the team I am thinking of using…
I know no healing for Sabina, but her debut and attack are welcome
Here is what I have beside this team

Even thinking of using Poppy. I love that girl.
Any thoughts are welcome and I appreciate all comments.

I wouldnt take either Sabina nor Gadeirus in this tournament. Especially Gadeirus, slow heroes arent very good in bloody battles and he is also a healer with a small damage. But im pretty sure he wont fire once during the whole tournament. I would go with Sonya-Scarlett-Buddy-Li-Xiu-Hansel.

Thanks . I have the emblems for Buddy and I appreciate it.

No place for Gretel?

I think Li Xiu is better on defense, but maybe you could replace Scarlett with her, as Scarlett is pretty squishy. Although so is Gretel even with maxed emblems. But as theres no colour restriction a rainbow or close to rainbow defense team is better. Do you have emblems for Wilbur by the way? He’s also very good on defenses.


My team for this tournament
