The third 3* tournament in 4 weeks, are you serious? The bloody battle lasts exactly until the first special attack of the enemy, and from 2 days they will begin to give opponents completely with emblems, just without a chance. It seems like it’s time to boycott the tournaments.

Planing to power-level Gato, ugh, I thought I had more time. Been working on Sonya and was planning to do Gato next.

As of now I’m going with Chochin - Valen - Gunnar - Ulmer - Kailani.

If I get Gato maxed in time, bye bye Ulmer.

thinking of dropping Kailani for Bane or Melia, but having two spirit linkers may be interesting. Though better for Rush attack.

Gunnar’s going to wreck. No Belith, no Mnesseus… How the hell do you counter him? Not having Gunnar myself, I don’t see much hope for me.

I think I will rock!

My only three that worse something is emblemed muggy because it can be used in wars

So now I am left with this formidable team!

PS
So not fun sg… I know you want us to spend but I took the trainer offer and acended five star instead…

Seriously, what’s gonna stop Gunnar here besides heavy stacking combined with a lucky board? Is there a non-green 3* dispeller? I can’t think of one

Thinking about embleming mine to node 2, would give him an additional Def boost and only cost me 1 emblem if I take them back after the tourney…

Oh no! Another 3* Tourney means that many people that bought a bunch of 4* and 5* heroes early in their game don’t have a chance because they didn’t bother leveling 3’s. The horror! :scream:

  • Do this week’s restrictions on hero/troop rarity and elements make your bench depth better or worse suited to this Raid Tournament than Regular Raids?

My three star bench is pretty deep and with green being the banned element, it doesn’t put too big of a dent as a 4 star banning dark would do.

  • Are there heroes you’re likely to use for this Tournament that you normally don’t make use of anymore?

Most of the heroes I use for 3 star tourneys I use still as part of color stacking across all activities.

  • Are there heroes you plan to power level for this Tournament, or level before the next time a Tournament like this one rolls around?

As soon as Cyprian is at 4-70 I am gonna start working immediately on Chochin. Getting emblems for him is a pain because I have a couple other sorcerers I have to split them between.

  • What are you thinking about using for your Defense Team?

As of right now I have Ulmer, Valen, Gunnar, Gill-Ra, and Bane I think. I do not remember at the moment who I have for my holy hero.

  • Are there heroes you expect to see on Enemy Defenses that you think you’ll have a harder time dealing with than usual because of the restrictions or special rule in this Tournament?

I in all honesty am anticipating a ton of Gatos, Ulmer, and maybe that three star sand Empire holy hero whose name I forgot.

  • Which of your heroes will you be likely to use on your Attack Teams?

Ulmer, Valern, Gill-Ra, Bane, Tyrum, Namahage, Azar, Nashgar (huge maybe).

  • Will the restrictions or special rule of this Tournament change your usual approach to color stacking or team building?

Nah, it won’t really change. Just gotta be a bit more clever with who I choose and hope I get some good boards or can quickly turn around a bad board within 2 turns max.

  • Are there elements of this week’s Tournament that are unclear to you?

Nope, they are all crystal clear.

  • Do you have feedback on the Tournament matchmaking?

Nope, not at the current time.
