So, assuming it stays the way, the question is following:

What tank will you use and why Alfrike?


Someone cheaper bc Zynga does not deserve my money :rofl:

Truth Jokes aside, I’ll problably use C. Vivica+20 as tank since that´s what I got avaible. Not a complain since I’m super thankful for my sweet magician. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

My main problem with 5* tournaments is the matching. Just because I have some Season 1 heroes with +20 emblems doesn’t mean I should be sent against alfrike+heimdall+kitty in boots+frigg+b. knight combos in the FIRST DAY. So unbalanced it doesn´t even give me motivation to try.


Sigh. I like the color-limited tourneys so much more :woman_shrugging:


Really tempted to put out this one as a semi-joke. It’s not like I can put out some killer defense nobody can beat so why pretend you have something great when you don’t right?

I guess the more practical option would be this:

Yes yes Freaky tank needs yellow flank, too bad all I have are two Joons and a Malosi, unless I want to put cHu Tao at flank lol. And yes I’m baiting a blue stack here.

I prefer your second option though or C. Marjana instead of Frida from first setup.

Both are strong :slight_smile:

I dont have Alfrike, so my plan is to revive and health boost :

Mother North - Gullinpig - Ursena - Heimdall - C. Azlar

The other one I am tempted to go is :

Mother North - Ursena - Gullinpig (or Odin) - Karnov - Mother North

Even more revive, and you cant bring black vs Ursena and Karnov , so Pig or Odin have more survivability :slight_smile:


I am going with different for this.
I will experiment and use Clarissa +18 as my tank, and then Vanda +19 & Telluri flanks. And I am thinking Zimkitha +17 wing with someone else but i can’t remember who see I put as wing.

I am tired of always doing Telluria as tank for stuff like this, so want to just try random stuff - who knows it may work, or it may not lol


The only 2 I’m sure of so far

Here’s some candidates in addition to the ones you see
EDIT- it’s too bad I don’t have any Emblems on © horghall, Khagan, Viv, etc.

I think “Alberich, Queen of Hearts, Guinevere, Atomos, Skadi”

I like it a lot! I realized I have 250 ranger Emblems. Think it’s worth putting them on khagan? I’d probably strip them off after the week so probably not right

Khagan is pretty powerful in rush attack but I am not sure if it worth or not. Put 250 Ranger Emblems on Khagan might not enough to make big change.

You’re right it’s like +4. 65 +50 +50 +65 = 230
What are you thinking about going with @u2371 ?

For attack team, maybe “Alberich, Guinevere, Miki, Zocc, Queen of Hearts”. There aren’t many good heros for rush attack.

Think I’ll go with…

Double revive usually serves me well in rush


Hmmm… Heimdall or Ursena as a tank?


Gonna go with this team


Bertila finally gets her chance to play some Defense :heart_eyes:

Not looking forward to the offense side :yum:


I would go

Alberich - QOH - Guinevere - Atomos - Skadi


Mana cutting at very fast speed along with taunts and revive will prove very deadly :slight_smile:

Atomos is there to constantly revive and Skadi to stop enemy minions in case they wish to infest board vs Guin (Bera, Freya) :slight_smile:


Pretty sure I’m going to go with this defense team, I have been looking forward towards rush tournaments!

Hopefully if I can gather enough food today I can take Mother North up to +7 and Santa up to +16.


Planning to put up this up…any inputs
