Following the pattern, this SHOULD have replicated the 21st Raid tournament. HOWEVER that was the 2* tournament which we know will not be repeated:

As such, I will be waiting to see where this goes before adding all the details in :stuck_out_tongue:


Well it is 3 star rush no green. Using this:


I don’t have 5 blues to use so have gone with…


Don’t have any emblems for 3*, but my defense team is similar:

Probably won’t have enough time to max Gunnar’s costume, but Ulmer is currently at 3/24 and now I’m thinking I really should level him and place him in left wing instead of Melia…

I could go 5 blues …but… always like to take a healer on rush…put AoE in the wing(s) and only have 3 leveled troops of each color (and 2 non-leveled) so I think I go with this:

OP updated to reflect the rules.

Shame that it’s ANOTHER no green tournament… :frowning:

I guess something like this:

Could do gunnar in costume, but ulmer also already does defense down. Hawkmoon? Do like having a healer, and she had a decent attackbuff, but she is red… my only healer-option though, so I did put her in.

Other options:
Tyrum (with or without costume)
(Renfeld, Balthazar)
Gan ju
Bane (costume)
Ulmer 2
Gato (2)

I’ll skip red, as that isn’t really an option this tournament.


Tournament de Guv

Thinking of running this. Only quandary at this point is if you swap Gunnar into his costume or not… :thinking:

(I have triple checked that I actually set this defence after last week’s debacle…)


You’ve inspired me, now I’m thinking this is probably better:

Ulmer will be at 3/50 by the time the tourney starts, now only question is should Ulmer and Hawkmoon switch places?

Edit: On second thought, gonna leave team as is. Chick Jr applies a -20% atk debuff after he casts, so makes more sense for Hawkmoon to go off after he does to counter that with her +30% atk buff.


If you have Ulmer, he pretty much does Gunnar costume’s job already. Better to make your team more durable in case they stack and get a good starting board IMO.

Similar thoughts here…


Think I’ll go with this…

May level a troop or two up a bit but otherwise this is probably it.


This won’t work. Chick Jr.'s curse is not dispellable so it can’t be overwritten by Hawkmoons buff. The only way is to block it with Gato.


Got an offensive troop for Arman?

She can’t overwrite the chick’s debuff.

And one red guarantees blue stacks attack you (they probably will anyway, but you reward it)

Ja, changed that to the wizards… was to lazy… thanks for pointing out :+1:

Same thinking here. You can not have enough def down…yes Ulmers is weaker and will overwrite Gunnars.
When having snipers shared damage is better…on rush attack you usually go with AoE hitters…therefore Paladin Gunnar might be better. :thinking:

Yeah there will be blues attacking anyway…healers on rush are more effective than usual…might swap Hawkoon and Nordri though.
