Tournament de Guv

Should this rule stick & follow the pattern we should see a return of Tournament 20 which was a 4* Bloody Battle, No Reds.

That time round I set this defence:
this ended with A grade on every day.

This time round I’ll probably use most of the same:


My defense for this particular tournament is not great because among 4*-s I have a lot of emblems on healers and the red team that I use for events.


Probably time 4 Bloody Buddy :wink:


I will set up this defense:

Edit: perhaps switch peters and proteus?


Sadly, I don’t have Buddy. Among my Greens, the most suitable tank would be… ?

Maybe LJ? How’s the collective wisdom on using a slow Green tank? He’s not super-sturdy, but at +11…

Otherwise could also go for Li…

I was thinking a solid tank plus 4 (mostly) fast hitters (to take advantage of lack of healing), but really open to suggestions.

thinking of this initial option:

Li because she’s my best 4* tank, IMO (faster than LJ!). Tibs for opposing colors… Jack at flank because if he goes off, at least he hits everybody (unlike Caed). Triton’s heal boost is useless, but he hits harder than Sonya, Valeria or Chao (my other fast eligible 4*s).

and other candidates…

Kiril and costumed Mel are only here for the defense/attack buffs. I left out Sabina and Rigard because their dispel/cleanse is not quite as useful, and I don’t have Rigard’s costume either. Also left out Wu Kong (I don’t think he will be very useful on defense?) and Hu Tao (too slow for this)


I will go like that, boril never disapointed me.


I will go for that one. You should change Tibs and Jack for more damage…Anyway Jack is probably going off earlier than Tibs…just in case.

Though John shines even in rush attack he never let me down either. When the board is bad his special is great. -64% biggest slow down in the game. I know Buddy is a superb tank,too.

€dit: Changed Buddy and LJ. Buddys defensive stats are really somewhat higher…even at +1.


Maybe i’ll go with this…not sure about Merlin…maybe Grimm? Proto? Thoughts?


Don’t like Merlin or Proteus on defense. Too random whom they are hitting. Even Merlin and Hansel overwrite each other.
I would go for Grimm definitely…or Tiburtus as I would avoid bringing blues if possible…since green will be a major attacking color.

If Grimm has more emblems, go for Grimm.


Thanks! appreciate the input. LJ can definitely punish a bad board… and I agree, the difference between him and Li isn’t THAT great…

I think this new defense could be REALLY annoying…


Nice thinking…I have Grimm on +11ish…probably can put some on Tibs…will check…


This maybe…

Any suggestions welcome.

My Roster

No point to have Melandor in, no healing and resurrection…

As @sleepyhead posted further up, his costume version doesn’t heal. Dispel buffs still works?

I do have a few other high end options and will continue to play around with the line-up during the day.

4.70, if we’re being persnickety about it :wink:

Looks good, and I could set exactly the same myself… :smiling_imp:

I also probably wouldn’t bother with Mel; yes the dispell & defence buff still apply but you’re losing a chunk of his skill…

I also would tank Boril over Caedmon, he’s just not really sturdy…?

Yeah, was from a previous sheet… Got a more current & nice version now but the old ones are in that format :stuck_out_tongue:

Going with this.

Might switch out Sonya for Tibs though, considering there will very likely be a lot of greens on offense.
