⚔ [28 Feb, 2021] - 97th Raid Tournament - 5* Bloody Battle, No Nature/ Green


Previously, Raid Tournaments have been followed a sequence, and we know there’s a 32-week cycle, so this week’s format is projected to continue following the sequence — but will not be confirmed until it shows up live in the game. There have been a number recently which have deviated from the previous rotation!

I think i will go with this. No other of my reds can do the trick here as well as JF. If he makes to fire then the ice power skill will be halved.

I wish i had my mitsuko maxed to counter ice heroes but well…


There’s time to think about this tourney, but at first glance it could be some combination of these heros… Not sure if I should try with Glenda tank, or to ignore restrictions and try something different…


It has to be blue tank? damn…

Well, there will be two freyas and wilbur, thats for sure, need to figure the rest

Got it :

Freya - Wilbur - Thorne+ C. - Freya - Drake Fong

Dont have better blue tank… Lets see if Uraeus will be the difference and make my defense D :slight_smile:

This gonna be a pain.

Poseidon Athena ariel jf jabberwok
Not ideal but ain’t got much to work with

Last time I went with this and had an A rated defense the entire week:

Of course I also had half as many emblems on my heroes back then so the competition was considerably weaker :sweat_smile:

This time I’m thinking the following:

Not sure which heroes I’d go with and the final placement just yet, but the defense will be selected from these 3 pools that I’m 95% certain.


Krampus is perfectly suited for this one because he’s blue, summons minions = pseudo-heal, and has that raised defense. With Freya or Bera in team, he can be pretty damn annoying. And I hope I won’t see Cobalt.

Anway I’ll probably go Seshat - Odin - Krampus - Vela - Kage.

It doesn’t have to be a blue tank. It’s just recommended because of the strong color vs. blue is not allowed in this one. (This is all presumptive atm) . We’ll know 4 shore when the actual rt starts

I like a mix of 1 and 3. I’m actually suggesting that you run a 3-2 defense with frida richard lepus jabberwock and ursena… It seems pretty crazy bug it could just work out too. Blocking 2 colors in green by nature and holy with ursena… Idk might be crazy enuf to work

First draw, maybe switch Vela with Skadi. And I think I prefer Seshat a little bit above Freya. Thoughts are welcome :slight_smile:


Good in theory, but that’s too many average speed heroes. At my level I basically assume all my opponents are gonna have lv 23 troops at least if not lv 30, so can’t afford to have a slow-ish defense. Kill or be killed.

I’m much more scared of a Vela tank than a Krampus tank. There are a few heroes who turn Krampus into nothing but a giant meatshield, but once Vela has gone off you’re in big trouble especially bloody battle. So I’d position the center three as Krampus-Vela-Skadi instead.



I have no decent blue 5* max that I can use.
I have Magni +7 and Miki.
4* Max with 18 or 19 emblems are Kiril (and costume), Grimm (and costume), Jott.

So, my options suck. I will go with a non-blue option.
Probably Clarissa +18

Honestly, thinking the same… I’m not convinced that Glenda+6 is a scary tank, even without greens… And that’s my best option here.

Instead, I might go with this - my best available tank + my hardest and fastest hitters. Two reds on the wings might be a liability, but Ursena could do her job against some blue attackers.

Thank you! Good point, well taken :slight_smile:

This seems a copy & paste. :sweat_smile: If only the following days would be like today. I had really nice boards in all battles and it made it easy. These were the enemy teams:

Teams with Zulag… what did they expect? :thinking: Generally, I went with 2-1-1-1 or 3-1-1.

The defense team is surprisingly 1:0.

Good luck and take care. :wink:


Gone with this defence. I think for all of the cries of Vela being useless after the rebalance she’s still going to be good as a tank in this.

I shall keep everyone in the loop on the rollercoaster ride that will be my defence :joy:


Good luck with that one but would love to see a Vela +20 stats.

EDIT: I’m a 4 star player so going with my 4* can’t get me past 350.000 in 5* tourneys

Today was just “fine” except the last match. The 4 that I won I had no amazing opening boards but no terrible ones but then my 5th one, the one I lost had literally 1 or 2 tiles I needed.
I went Mono Purple for all 5 matches. I didn’t think I would get a single kill in my last match so was actually happy when I managed to kill Joon in the wing + Richard tank.

(Tanks I faced: Justice, Elena, Richard, Isarnia, and Richard)
(All tanks were +18 or higher)

Day 1
Offense: 4-1
Defense: 0-0 (so far)

Offense: 4-1
Defense: 0-0
