If anyone wants some early ideas here is my team :slight_smile:


This is from the last time this tourny was ran


Do we think LotL still has a place in this format for the mana cut? Or is she a hard no because of the healing? Otherwise I will use Kingston.

Other choice I still have to make is whether to use Anzogh, Grazul for a rainbow or leave red out and put in C-Sartana.

Heroes that will figure:

Off the top of the head options I am considering:

Kingston 100%, mana cut isn’t worth it on a slow hero that’s primary function is to heal. This is all about fast damage.

What’s going to be in top of the tourney? Basically what we see in top 100 now except just all BKs no Garnets. Called it :laughing:


Probably I’ll use this team, because all of them highly emblemed, and good damage dealers i think.
I have few other choices, like Krampus +17, Magni +12, Atomos, Sartana.


My options for this one are very limited… So I’m just gonna put the fastest damage dealers I have:

2 yellows to try to discourage yellow stacking, but in general I don’t have a plan. Or options to do much better. :slight_smile: So, low expectations this time. :slight_smile:


Hard one for me, as I don’t have many 5* and tend to emblem healers…

Was thinking this?

Telluria is still my best tank, for red I have Marjana or Elena, but I guess Marjana will be the better option because fast mana. Blue: no fully leveled 5* yet, so options are sonya, grimm or triton.
Yellow I have Leonidas, but no emblems and his doesn’t heal. I guess Li will be better. Purple: mok-arr is maxed, but a bad option in defense. Rigard wastes half his special, so either proteus or tibertus, and then I guess tibertus is the best option.


Is there a way, you put fenrir on the right wing, so he goes last?

This is my initial thought for my def team:

Could use tiburtus in costume, same for Li xiu…

Options in blue would be Grimm +11 or sonya +1

Other possible heroes: wu kong +18, skittleskull, guardian falcon, gormek, guardian jackal

Other heroes don’t really fit for bloody battle…

Any (better) ideas for me? I’m just thinking of using tiburtus in costume because it should work good with Li xiu and Scarlett, might give her some emblems (was going to anyway)


Nope, fast or vfast kill, att buff, def debuff, minions, cleanse, dispel, riposte, reflection, taunt and mana cut. Fast damage goes the dynamite…

Just recognized that I’m 3 years on the forum today.


I’m going to try this defense.


Isarnia my lady if you can go off under BK’s attack boost it is pretty much over.

let’s do this team :wink:


I thought about it, maybe I could… But the reasoning behind was, if my front line fires, there’s a chance there should be some opponents with <50% left for him… But yeah, him in the right corner is the place to be, keeping him there in my regular defence.

Hi guys! Quick question - do passives work in a bloody battle?
Examples would be these guys here

There are others too. I’m just trying to figure out if those passive effects work in a bloody battle

All the resists work and anything that reduces damage.

Cmiiw, but the things that don’t are

  • Instant healing
  • Regeneration
  • Extra HP (Heimdall, cKashhrek)
  • Revival, Resurrection (Alberich, Mother North, Heimdall, Atomos, Tyr)
  • HP, Healing Steal (Vampires)
  • Heal self from attack (Elkanen, Leonidas)

Edit : Basically, once your hero loses HP, there is no way to gain it back


Ok! I knew that all related to healing didn’t work, I wasn’t sure about the blocking of damage. Thanks for your quick response!

1st draft…

Other options…

I noticed that I have excactly 5x 5* heroes maxed each color… balanced so far… :sunglasses: :muscle:
Almost 2 year play since feb 2019.
