5*, Bloody Battle, No Ice (Blue)

Calling it now! :stuck_out_tongue:

I hope you’re wrong cuz blue is by far my strongest no-star-limit color x.x


Called it!!

Appears to (more or less) be following the pattern of the past tournaments.


is this karma for throwing you under the bus last time? :face_with_raised_eyebrow: now that I think about it, this is literally the worst possible combination for a tournament for me. I was so excited for this week’s tournament after straight As in defense last week and getting a tome lol :smiley:

btw @Guvnor what’s the tournament next week? Seeing as I’m probably out of the game already this week lol.


Tournament de Guv - 42nd tournament

Version 2 - FINAL

First pass at a defence team:

Not sure of Morgan as she loses some effectiveness out in the wing with no healing…

May also swap jabber and GM around too…


If the pattern holds:

4* buff booster, no green


This is gonna be my defense, as these are the strongest heroes available for me on this tournament. :slight_smile:


Worst tourney for me to form a defense line-up


Blacky, Grazzy and Gravey will be the top tanks in it.

I’m glad to have Zimi.

First defense setup:


Criticism and advice welcome.


I’m only doing this because I already joined and need the valor ticks, but this is gonna be rough. Woof.

Yeah yeah I know. My other options are Boldtusk and Ares, so don’t think I’m not aware of how questionable Wilbur is.


Last Time (2019-06-30) I did not post.

OK, my 1st setup:


Kage, White Bunny (+6), BK (+7), G.Kong (+2), Lianna (+7).

Kage isn’t a wing, but I like White Bunny even less on wings.

Thinking offensively probably going to roll Red mono again - neutral or better against everything, so should in theory be pretty effective.

May shake up a tiny bit but expecting to go primarily that way.

Should I mono red? My red heroes are not my strongest (yet). Blue is my best but as it is not allowed… :frowning:

What will be my best option ?

Or a mix up? Buddy is my go to tank, always, but as it is green it is very vulnerable now

Don’t tank Scarlett… Glass cannons shouldn’t be anywhere near tank.

Buddy is a decent tank normally, but there’s absolutely no punishment for stacking red in this tourney - wipe Buddy fast, neutral on everything else.

A decent green wing might work, but this tournament isn’t one for Buddy IMHO.

Out of the three you posted, the first will do best… But sub in Gormek instead of Wilbur.

What other dark, holy and nature do you have on the bench?


Shall I change the order?
Maybe a red one in the middle?


Where is @Scarecrow when you need him? Hope they are ok.


If I attack you mono red… Your tank dies fast, everything else is neutral damage.

There’s no drawback to stacking reds against a green tank in this tournament.

A red center would be better if you have a suitable tank (because strong colour can’t be stacked against it)… Drake would be far better than Zeline if you don’t have a suitable red tank.
