Tournament De Guv

Here’s my defence I’m thinking for this one. Shaking things up a little cause I’ve done a lot of 5* levelling since last time this tournament featured.

Last Time Round

Click for Defence & Performance last time round


Same here.

Could really use some help on this one. Almost on Auto set:

Last time


option 1:

option 2:

i’m leaning towards Option 1, Aeron gives additional buffs and protects Joon. Option 2 only leaves Aegir as buffer and makes Marjana a magnet for Blue stacks…

only other 5* option is Inari, but I struggle to fit her in. Aeron > Inari, I think.

open to suggestions though :slight_smile: but i find very few of my 4*s - even highly emblemed - can work. Kiril gives buffs and is Blue, and Sabina dispels enemy buffs, but they both seem a bit frail…

other options:



This one. Though I would not recommend bringing too many yellows this week. Fighter-Joon still seems good. May be swap him with Lupus (fast mana? …if not keep him flank)


thanks! Yeah, I figure a lot of Purple dispellers will be running around this tourney… I think I’ll keep Fighter-Joon beside Aeron in wing for safety. Thanks for your advice :slight_smile:

You’re welcome. Any advice in return?

thanks for asking. I’m not very confident about advising others lol, I figure if I make a bad decision on my OWN defense, I’m the only one that gets hurt…

But I would not tank with Ares, Blues are still allowed… I think Richard would make a good tank. You could try Victor - Athena - Richard - Kiril - Sonya? Sonya’s highly emblemed and she dispels all (unlike Domitia who only dispels 3). And Victor’s higher speed and defense boost to all make him a more attractive Purple, in my opinion. Then you have two buffers, Richard to debuff attack, and Sonya to dispel.


Not sure who I want for this so I have gone with:

Costume Rigard / Grimm / Kiril / Costume Tiburtus / Triton

I may replace Triton with Sonya though.
I wanted some to buff + heal, as well as some heroes that can attack multiple at once.


That was just the auto draft…not my decision. Don’t think I will use Ares at all in defense this week.

Thanks. This is a resonable decision. Swap Victor and Sonya though.
Had only considered other tanks so far (Kiril, Athena,Victor Domitia). :grinning:


oh yeah, dispel on the left. silly me, forgot that basic bit :wink: I would be scared of attacking that defense!

good luck to us :slight_smile:


Same to you.

Thoughts on troops? Richard needs the lvl 9 mana troop to load 1 round faster. Still have a lvl 1 mana troop available for Sonya…but I think crit troop with higher def value suits better. Only some xp missing for Victors troop to reach lvl 11.


Yes I would do this. Triton hits harder but dies faster. Best colors this week : blue & purple :+1:


I’d use regular Richard… Better class for a tank, defence debuff lasts longer against anyone not bringing attack buff or cleanse.

Base version of Richard is just plain better.

I would personally go defense on Sonya. Her main role is to stay alive and keep dispelling, IMO. And having Richard as tank charge faster is more valuable :slight_smile:

Healers in wings - too easy.

Costume Rigs needs to be flank, more likely to fire and can’t be left alone until no threats remain (which he can on wing).

C-Tibs is going to reduce the defence debuff you’ve applied with Grimm… Plus two darks guarantees an attacker stacks holy, I wouldn’t do it.

Sonya to dispell attackers buffs makes some good sense.

Triton and Grimm are both quite flimsy for defence… Good hero’s but I don’t think I’d put both up.

What else have you got?


Issue with putting Ares as tank is that he’s weak to the inevitable blue stack that people will be running.

I’d move him to flank of Richard

What you think guys, about putting high emblemed Mitsy on defence to counter the blues stacks? :thinking:
