So assuming rulez stick im going with a center of Li - Guillinbursti - Li. Could use some advices. Li dressed or undressed? And who for wings. Have an unemblemed colin i think is a good fit, but the other? Thinking sniper since no one else jumps out from my roster despite having almost all 4* in game maxed. Have Sonya and Triton both maxed and emblemed. Sonya has costume. Go cleanse or dispel?

Oh and Happy Halloween! :jack_o_lantern:

Skttleskull/Colen - Gullin - Li Xiu - Little John - Hu Tao

Its a good one. Though some of the slow yellow like hu tao and the average li xiu seem to lack the damage without emblems to win matches by themselves without an attack boost.
The star would be Gilinbursti without doubt. So , i have some ideas but nothing decided yet.

The idea i like the most

Both teams have damage enough but i dont know if they have enough survavility.

The extreme one, i dont like to go mono colour anyways



Is Gullenbursti not a good tank? I see you guys both put him on flank with Li Xiu tank.
He seems to have mediocre defense but a really high HP stat for a 4* hero.

I was thinking something like:

Jott - C.LiXiu - Gullenbursti - Gretel - Sumle

Other options I considered:
Skittle (have unleveled costume)

Also got Frank but unfortunately won’t have him leveled in time.


Initial ideas:

c.Kashrek to potentially provide more survivability for Gullinbursti and Sumle, especially Sumle because he’s the main damage dealer. Mist is always solid on the flank. The only dilemma is Jott or Grimm. Never used Jott so I might go for him, but Grimm can also be devastating = dmg + defence down. Which one is better? :thinking:

I didnt put him as tank because i like more agressive ones there. I know li xiu is not that dangerous in terms of damage but if she goes off first she can delay a little bit the enemy team. I have to decide yet if a want her costume or uncostumed.

Gilinbursti hp boost is nice ofc but im giving my opponent more time to work on the board. In a few words i find him more passive.

Hu tao is a good tank but mine is unemblemed and is the weakest of those yellow in stats.

So thats why i put li xiu in the fireline and the other two in the flanks where i think they can charge pretty fast too but arent so exposed to tiles


From the last time this tourney was ran. Thanks to @rho and @Vkcko for posting these before. Sometimes I don’t have the time.


fair ain’t got nothing to do with it

Most likely will go with BT - Wu Kong/Mist - Gullinbursti - Jackal - Mist/Jott or something like that. Expecting ton of Gullinburstis showing up.


Alas, my Yellows are limited to Danzaburo and the vanillas.

Thinking of this… (comments welcome @Vikingblood80 @BubblesUK may I pick your brains again? :slight_smile: )

I also have all the other vanillas, plus Gadeirus, Hansel, Jack O’Hare, Valeria, Triton, Shadereave, Sir Lancelot. Alas no Gullin or Gretel.

Li Xiu +15 is sturdier than either Danza or Hu, and also more reliable than Danza. I think she can make a good go of stalling. Normal > Costume for greater defense, mana cut; plus while the Rogue talent is useful, it’s not as useful for a tank (in my opinion). If Li were a wing I would think differently.

Re Kiril. Greens do have a lot of dispellers, but hopefully Colen balances it out. I think having a healer for Rush attack will be good. I suppose my Lady Wooly +15 could go in that slot too, but…

Was thinking Little John could come in, but not sure who to drop between Kiril or Colen then.

Little John for Danza…gave me A last time.
Little Johns mana slow 64%!!! Is the best effect you can have.


Hard one, as a lot of my best 4* heroes are purple, while I feel I’m weakest in yellow.

First attempt:


This time with Kirils costume I change the order a bit
@BubblesUK @sleepyhead


looks good. Suggest switching Hu Tao and Colen? I would stack Green against this, so Colen beside Kiril could reap some benefits. Agree on keeping LJ as flank as he has more emblems.

nice! thanks @Vikingblood80 the effects speak for themselves indeed :wink:

I like the above discussion
2nd attempt


Maybe this


Trying this:

Lots of choices, but these are the high emblem ones. Tempted to bring out my other slows like Sumle, Shadereave, Colen, Hu Tao. Also have Mist at lower emblems. Got blue Grimm and Sonya at high emblems, but the temptation to use Jott with a red tank is high!!
