Sorry to hear about your back luck @Roland56 and @notyou87 I had what I can only consider pity RNG and somehow went 5-0 today to live another day. 12-3 on offense with a defense too sad to mention If I’m not knocked out tomorrow I’m buying a lottery ticket!
Stopped using Shrubbear today, though it’s more because I had to use either Xiaotu (against Phorcys and Cao Cao) or Lord Loki (against passive but buffy Belladonna and Hawthorn tanks) as the 1 in my 4-1 attack.
Boards were terrific today. Even the one bad starting board of the day quickly turned on a cascade of Purple tiles.
In the first 4 matches, neither Xiaotu or Lord Loki needed to use their SS for me to win.
Faced a fully LB2 Waterpipe - Phenexa - c2Elkanen - Diaochan - Viselus team in the last match and a chance to use my Red team of Grazul - Ruby - El Duque - Xiaotu - Khonshu instead. Got a Red diamond in the first move and another easy win.
Defense has dropped 4 in a row to go from B to D (5-9). Offense will need to keep scoring points. However, the last 2 teams today were over 5900 TP. I dread to think what tomorrow might bring
Good luck everyone still in this!
It’s fine… Oh this tourney day really pissed me off when I was posting my results. I never had this happen before, ever. 3 flags in a row literally 0% chance of winning. I seem to get the worst of the worst in 5* buff booster tournaments too, I remember going 10-8 in one of them once with using continue. Haven’t even finished day 4 of the tourney with using 1 continue.
You would think bloody battle and rush are harder 5* tournaments, for me it’s buff booster.
I also had one that was also buff booster one and started 3-2 on day 1 against easy defs and I literally didn’t play afterwards, gave 2 free wins to someone on day 2, that’s how I didn’t care.
Something just always has to go wrong for me in 5* tourneys. I had 1 tourney offense 21-4 not long ago but def was just E. This time I have a good def, but horrible boards screw me over.
Def continues being A at 7-4, still not going to continue, don’t have gems anyway.
All the good board luck ended today with 3 losses. Other than the first defense with a middle 3 of Aramis - Oniwakamaru - Phorcys, the other 2 weren’t super hard, but when the tiles don’t come your way At least they weren’t zero point losses.
Defense closer to E than C at 6-12, but bought back in anyway since I was filling my Raid chest. Hopefully a good last day and top 5% is still reachable.
Better luck everyone!
2 losses on the last day to finish 18-7 for the tournament. First loss was against a LB2 Ludwig flanked by Hawthorn and Waterpipe. Killed the middle 3 but just couldn’t find the tiles to finish off the Bastet and Barkley, cat and dog wings. One of those times where a healer in my attack team would have helped.
The other loss was a c2Obakan special. He just kept reviving until the rest of his team charged
Currently in top 1% but won’t stay there with a D (6-13) defense.
Good luck with the loot tomorrow
So I spent the week running ccLianna-Augustus-ccMagni-Lord Loki-2LB double bonus Grimm. The boards were fairly kind to me so I survived the week at 22-3. Defense was solid E’s, but I’m in the top 1% now.
I may need to make Loki my first 2LB 5 star. He’s so much fun.
Making a return to tourney threads to vent.
I was soooooo mad/frustrated on day 2 with my first three boards. I was 5-0 day one with same attacking team on all flags. Those first three on day 2 were sooo bad, lack of tiles (using 2-1-1-1), combos at bad times, my heroes killed with full mana, everything bad with rng.
After calming down and not breaking my phone, I figured I must have been lucky day 1 with the 5-0. But won my last 2 that day to stay in. Then won my last 15 attacks as well.
In the end, it makes my frustration justified, I think. If my team won 17 attacks in a row, it really must have been bad luck on those 3 attacks.
My attack team for whoever may be interested
Anyways, thanks for listening to my mini-rant!
O : 22-3 (5-0, 4-1, 3-2, 5-0, 5-0)
Go with mostly C Ariel - Ludwig - Phthonus - Lord Loki - CB RIgard or C/CB Sabina in all attack. I luckily get pretty good board and make it to the last attack without buy back.
D : 3-7 (E,D,D,D,D)
I go with this defense.
It don’t work well. I think I should put replace C2 Obakan with Phthonus.
1 EHT, 3 small aether and 1 large aether. Better than average by overall .
Attack: 18-7 (44523)
Defense: 8-13 (BDDDD)
Ranking: 11,939 (Top 5%)
After a good first 3 days, stumbled to a 5-5 record to end the tournament. Beating 5500+TP opponents are the flip of a coin. Still an improvement over the 13-8 record the last time this tournament ran.
Defense started brightly as well and faded as well
And the drought of good loot continues…
A break from 5* tournaments next week, but it’s a 4* Rush (Previous record 12-8). At least there’s no restriction on Gullin killers…
And that’s my top5% loot
Compared with 25% and 50% loot from my other accs - looks similar but more aethers here and didn’t waste 75 gems
My 5* tourney curse continues, but it changed sides this time. Def was A,A,B,A,A. Mostly hovering at 60-65%, fell down to 55%-59.9% 2 or 3 times total.
Third day of horrible boards resulting in 0-3 after going strong 9-1, decided not to bother.
Ended Top 25% 2 small aethers is the ‘highlight’.
I don’t know why such strange things happened on Wednesday, but it was the same for me:
The boards did not want to cooperate in any way and gave me three defeats in a row even though later I beat much better teams
My 5th loss was only in the last fight where I had to face enemies with much higher TP (my max TP in this tournament is 5.1k, but I usually use teams with 4.8-4.9k power).
Yeah, it often does happen on day 3 for me as well, if I at least went 2-3 I might have given this tourney a chance, but 0-3, nope.
