My results have been so so.
Day 2 :
Defence team :
Currently sporting a 5-2 record for an A rating
On attack I have gone 7-3 so far losing to these teams :
Bad boards allowed kadilen to fire early despite stacking 3 fire and some unfortunate slash attacks killed my dispeller. Tiles managed to kill kadilen in the end but by then both azlar and justice could fire.
This loss was entirely my own fault. I underestimated Vivica at tank in this format and didn’t stack purple. assuming I could kill her off with some off color tiles and subsequent special skills. I couldn’t and her constant healing, hoorghalls damage reduction and rigards heal over time made it impossible to make a dent. It got me a big fat 0 for my effort once time ran out. Lesson learnt the hard way.
I was never in this one. A bad board against a very well put together team. In the end tiles killed kadilen due to a lucky cascade but an emblemmed santa with no blues and 3 maxed 5*'s to my name was one bridge too far. My only hope was to outlast this team due to a lack of healers on defense so I went in with MN, Costumed melendor and wilbur with kestrel and colen supplying the damage hoping to whittle them down slowly but it was over before I could get going.
5* tournies are tough because I can field a 4k tp defense team but have no 5* depth so my attacking teams are always around the 3.6k-3.8k range. Punching above my weight class.
All in all I am not too dissapointed. Generally I am fighting teams which are 300-400 tp above me so I don’t think getting past day 3 was ever on the cards.
