Question is in the title.
I know there’s a million of these help me setup my defense team threads. I’ve read through a lot and have experimented quite a bit. In all my attempts, I struggle to build a defense team that can stay above 2400 cups overnight. Each morning when I log in, I’m down to 2300 cups or lower sometimes. All my troops are 4* mana and level 20+. I’ve stripped emblems from almost all my heroes (except for some 4* heroes) and will use them on the defense team that seems to work best.
One thing I do quite often is look at the defense team of the top 100 players for guidance. Unfortunately, I don’t have most of the heroes you see in the top 100 (i.e. Ursena, GM, Guin, Alby, etc.).
Maybe people can explain in their responses why they pick specific heroes and why they position them where they did. This could end up being a template for how to build a defense team.
My Thought Process
I recently tried a purple defense team that didn’t work out. I figured the yellow defense from Kunchen’s elemental link and Domitia’s special would counter a yellow stack offense, but that didn’t prove to be true. The team has defense down, dispel, buffs from multiple elemental links, resistance to status ailments, etc. But it didn’t work:
Guardian Panther | Domitia | Kunchen+8 | Aeron | Seshat.
Kunchen has a +16 4* crit troop and Seshat has a +22 4* mana troop.
As you can see, I have decent heroes so I feel like a team that can stay between 2500-2600 should be a realistic expectation. Especially considering I raid every day to stay in diamond.
