I can’t say anything about the difficulty of this opponent, because it was a really bad board I attacked with two greens (cMelendor, c2Elkannen) and three blues (Magni, Raffaell, cSonya) and there were no blue tiles on the board Using greens I managed to kill the tank and the right flank, but there were not enough “good tiles” for me to do more.
Second defeat against this team:
This time the board was average, but this defense was too strong for me. I bounced off the wall - first “0”
Survived Day 3 with just another loss. Switched between 4 Purple and 4 Blue (vs Hohenwerf and Tetisheri tanks) with Grazul being the off-colour healer. Boards were good with nice cascades for the most part.
The single loss was against a c2Obakan tank flanked by Morel and Bastet. Got my 6 Purple tiles but an unlucky cascade charged Obakan. Dispelled and killed him but his Superior Revive kicked in and he fired again. Did managed to kill off the right 3 defense heroes so got some points from it.
The next match, Killhare revived 5 straight times before I finally killed her
Defense lost 3 straight yesterday to wind up at 3-5 (D). No attacks today and it looks like the offense will have to provide the points this week
So I’m limping through this tournament like I always do with 5 star tournaments, but I just came here to say that the wizard superior talent is incredible here. Who needs a dispeller when cbIsarnia is clearing all the buffs?!?
I feel your pain buddy, it seems 5* tournaments are now more board dependent than ever. It used to be if I put together a well thought out 3-2 or 3-1-1 team, I could win 85% of my matches even with a terrible opening.
But now, if I don’t get 9 tiles of my color in time before the tank fires, I have at least a 50% chance of losing. And oh yes I’ve tried doing almost rainbow teams (2-1-1-1) and nope they don’t work, because I’m too scattered, and simply don’t have enough firepower to bring down even the tank sometimes.
I honestly don’t remember the last time I felt this stressed during a buff booster tourney (even last week’s rush against Freak tanks didn’t feel this bad) but here we are I guess. Looking forward to the bloody battle one in a few weeks
And btw c2Obakan is a bastard, way worse than Hawthorn or even Ludwig tanks I’ve found.
I was not going to post in this 5* tourney thread, but I did decent… apart from the all purple defense that I threw together without lots of thought. The way I see it, my defense saved me 75 gems. Stats…
Offense = 14-4. Just lost my final match today. A couple zeroes, a couple 170 points or so, on my 4 losses.
Defense = Really bad. 3-5. (E/E/C/?/?). I was not expecting much from a 5* tournament.
Currently at 10,924 points (before defense calculations on Days 4 and 5) which is Top 25% as of now. And that’s fine with me; there is no reason to buy back in.
Best of luck to people still in it , with their Day 5 attacks.
Footnote about last week’s loot…. I got Top 5% for the first time, and was satisfied with it. Another warm cape and some ice aethers, plus the emblems and other stuff. But I have been summoning lots of blue heroes lately, so it will be useful down the line.
Almost a repeat of previous tournament except my def is all B this time.
O : 19:6 (4-1, 3-2, 4-1, 4-1, 4-1)
D : 4:3 (B,B,B,B,X) If my def stays B, I should end up with 18190 points. Wondering if it will be enough for top 1%, if yes, I’m gonna get unexpected 2 5* tourneys in a row with top 1%, but I have such feeling that it won’t be enough.
Lost against these tanks (I know whole def is important, not just tank, but too lazy to take screenshots) :
1 C Obakan, haven’t faced another one
1 Aflrike out of 3
1 M&M, haven’t faced another one
1 Diaochan out of 2
1 Ludwig out of 4
1 Hulda out of 2
Also won against : 1 Ursena, 1 Viscaro, 1 CB Krampus, 1 Louhi, 1 Bastet, 1 Agrafena, 1 Xnol, 1 Quenell, 1 Set, 1 Liu Bei, 1 Waterpipe, 1 Onyx
Liam, love following your adventures in the weekly tournaments! Please keep up your reporting.
I went mono all week, won 18/25 and is currently around place 1900 (only one loss was a zero). I’m more focused on 3* and 4* tournaments where I have fully built out rosters. 5* tournaments is usually about being the underdog for me as I’m not prepared to invest enough to be a big dog
@PlayForFun would you mind changing the number in the title for this topic from 181 to 191? I believe the tournament numbering is off by 10 this week. Cheers!
Managed to make top 1% in the end.
Score 18732, rank 4752
Went 18-6 on offense and defense was ABCCC I think. Surprised it even managed A and B on the first two days since I put out something really dumb: Athos-Tethys-Khepri-D’Artagnan-Kai. I just wanted to have some fun with musketeers, and would’ve tanked Aramis had I leveled him up in time.
Tournament started well through the first 3 days, and then came a streak of bad boards on Day 4 when it mattered most against the 5200+ teams😅
Defense was bad mostly but 2 wins on the last day pushed it back above C and kept me in top 10%. Didn’t matter much in terms of loot.
4th lost in early of day 3. So, I decide to buy back. Then I get many win until I lose in 4th attack of day 5 due to bad board .
I think after when you buy back once, you will get much easier opponent. I happen to me every time when I buy back in 5* tournament.
D : ABCCC
My Mielikki tank defense drop to C grade in day 3 and stay there. Well, not bad for 4* tank in 5* tournament. In fact, I think she do better job than my Dr. Moreau 85+20 tank in the previous 5* no yellow tournament .
