⚔ [21 Jun, 2020] - 61st Raid Tournament - 5* Bloody Battle, No Fire/ Red

Always glad to see fewer telly tanks. Thank you for doing your part. :grin:

Now, I am secretly hoping that I encounter you in the tournament instead of a Telly tank :smiling_imp:

Ursena on wing is completely wasted - by the time she fires she’s guaranteed to only be doing 130% damage, so I’d swap Kingston and Ursena around.

Then I’d swap Joon and Freya to balance out the change above since Ursena is now on flank, so don’t want another purple flanking.

So more Atomos research for me then. I have Kadilen at flank instead of Lianna cause I think getting her buff out early will be better than late since without healing it’s likely to not matter then. Or would it be better to fire Lianna earlier for a kill?

Also not sure why some seem surprised by this format. There’s a rotation that’s linked in each of these posts. I base a lot of my levelling decisions on which tourneys are coming up.

For those who irritated about what we might call “Telly Tourneys”… this one and the other recent No Red haven’t happened since about 8 months ago, give or take. So these shouldn’t repeat for another 8 months or so. :slight_smile:

Though, in the tourney log, I don’t see any 5* Buff Booster, No Red… I wonder why?

Assuming it is following the previous occurrence pattern, then just be aware, a couple of weeks from now we’ll be looking at a 5* Rush Attack with no restrictions, so likely another Tellyfest there; but then we’ll get a 5* Bloody Battle with NO GREEN, so you can rejoice on that one, at least. :wink:

Doing some Path of Valor math… it looks like we have four full tournaments left, and then a single day on the fifth tournament before POV ends. In that time, there are THREE full 5* tournaments, ONE full 3* tournaments, and a single day of a 3* tournament (again, if the cycle holds).

For my own concerns on finishing that challenge in POV: I only made 10, 11, and 22 attacks in the last three tourneys, and that puts me at 13/20 on Tier 4, so I have 7 remaining on this tier, and then 25 on Tier 5 to complete it.

32 total remaining needed, out of 105 attacks available (4 full tourneys + 1 day of fifth); I think I can pretty easily make it. If you figure there are 4.2 tourneys left in POV, I need to average about 7.6 attacks per tourney; so as long as I can manage to not do absolutely horribly, I should be able to finish without having to spend gems to continue.

I would imagine that many people would have the same or more attacks already completed than I do, so I don’t think there’s any reason to worry about not finishing the POV tourney challenge. :slight_smile: I got super frustrated in those tourneys where I dumped out at 10 and 11 attacks, but it was just a run of bad luck, and my defenses weren’t holding up well enough to bother continuing.

Good gaming!

There is a Tier 6 of 30 battles.

Doh! Thanks for pointing that out, I guess I had 5 tiers stuck in my head for that one. :slight_smile:

So I’m a little less optimistic then, that means I need 62 attacks over 4 full tournaments, which means about 16 attacks per tourney… plus the first day of the 3* tourney at the end. Hmm… well, I guess we’ll see how it goes. I can probably still pull that off!

Good gaming!

I also at 13/20 for POV, 4* tournament 2 weeks ago went really bad, was out after 7/8/9? (I forgot, but before ending day 2) attacks. A well, when I get the 5th tier finished, I will still complete this POV. Didn’t manage the tournament one last POV either, but did in the first POV.

Going to go with an all fast/high damage lineup. Not expecting much, will be satisfied with a C.

Missing a bunch of my best heroes in this tournament setting.

Which would be better?

OR

Or the first one but with Drake in the place of Caedmon…
Other options shown in the lower half

I’d swap the position of Buddy and Kingston. In the event that Buddy and Kingston (and Musashi) are charged at the same time, Buddy can give that defense down first.

All green fast with Telly +18 tank, or mix in emblemed Drake and Hel? (Kingston could replace Morgan in 2nd team)

I’m going to force yellow attackers, only slow cleanse and dispel from a healer.

If you are referring to Vivica, I’m not even sure that would matter assuming Alfrike hits her b/c any cleanser wouldn’t be able to use their special if hit. Gazelle could potentially be an average speed dispel. Btw how much of Afrike’s special is blocked by Malosi?

How does Morgan Le Fay work on Bloody Battle? Her special says she “drains HP”. For bloody battle does she just basically do a DOT without the self heal?

Not much to work with. Won’t last past the first day…

I doubt that figure, anyway, there are 3 possibilities, x3 categories, for 5 colors, that is, more than a year without repeating. Counting that they repeat several times, from 3 to 5, etc. it did not play whether you like it or not. What’s more, I do not have the data, but surely several have not been done to repeat this, which is the most repeated.

Domitia +7 :thinking:

If we assume that there are the following:

3* or 4* or 5* heroes (3 possibilities)
Rush Attack, Bloody Battle, or Buff Booster (3 possibilities)
And restricting ONE color at a time, or else NO color restriction (6 possibilities)

…that would lead me to believe there are 3x3x6 or 54 different combinations.

However, as I noted above, it seems there wasn’t a 5* Buff Booster, No Red tournament and we are already seeing repeats. We could expect that if each week was determined randomly, but we are clearly seeing a repeat of a previous pattern, so it seems to me that there is a pattern - I just haven’t gone to the trouble of trying to see if there are breaks in the pattern. I thought someone else did but I couldn’t find it on a quick search. :slight_smile:

But we’ve had the following for the past few weeks:
61st RT - 5* Bloody Battle, no Red
60th RT - 4* Rush Attack, no restrictions
59th RT - 5* Rush Attack, no Red
58th RT - 4* Bloody Battle, no Blue
57th RT - 3* Rush Attack, no Blue

Then if I look back to Nov 2019:
30th RT - 5* Bloody Battle, no Red
29th RT - 4* Rush Attack, no restrictions
28th RT - 5* Rush Attack, no Red
27th RT - 4* Bloody Battle, no Blue
26th RT - 3* Rush Attack, no Blue

So there clearly is a set pattern, as the likelihood of this happening randomly is very, very low. :wink:

Good gaming!

Looking at the past tournaments we have a total of 2 no fire 5* rule sets. The one 2 weeks ago and this one. We will go through the entire rotation again now before we get back to the no fire 5* rush tourney we all suffered through.
