🏅 [Jan 19, 2020] 40th Raid Tournament! — 4* Bloody Battle, All Elements

After yesterday’s absolute fiasco I started to analyze the mistakes which I could had made to end like the witch in Hensel&Gretel…burn baby burn Colen&Kelile inferno…
It‘s not a shame to stumble, isn‘t it?

Tried my renewed team.
5-0 (I know; maybe only luck and nothing else. But sometimes positive „illusions“ are able to help changing the mood from 2/10 to 5/10. :wink:)

DEF is still poor but rises from completely failure to failure (D)

Rank: Top 25%

Reading your posts from this and older ones tournaments definitely helped a lot.

3 losses all together now after day 3, my def holds a poor A, 1 defeat away from B.

Just barely top 5% so far.
Very tough battles against +100.

My green stack + Proteus won 4 fights today (only 1 was extremely close), unfortunately mono blue snipers lost due to not getting any tiles after killing the tank. Still, 14-1 looks good.
Defense continues to hold its own, 5-5 today so far for a combined record of 17-9.
Top 1k rank currently.

Day 3

Offense

I won all 5, bringing me to 14-1 overall so far.

My last matchup was a bit hard, and I came pretty close to losing, partly due to a dumb move I made somewhat early on after Wilbur resisted Proteus’s mana block.

I got down to here:

And then my very next move cascaded and killed both Peters and Li Xiu. :relieved:


Defense

Still getting attacked nonstop…I’m currently at a 63% win rate, so hopefully that’ll hold for a third day of an A Defense Grade.


Ranking

I’m currently in the Top 1%, actually higher up than I would have expected for having a loss on Day 2.

Story of the losses...

I KEEP F.king forgetting about the bloody Riposte BUG!!! I lose a match, then remember… But because I break my attacks up (to fill raid chest) I KEEP FORGETTING!!!
Lost two matches cause of it… One in the first pair of attacks then the first in the second set of attacks… bloody hell…

Link to Riposte Bug Thread:
[KNOWN ISSUE] Issues with Counterattack

Overall am 12/15 on attack, still inside the top 1%… just need to remember & not lose…


Defence
Dropped to B-Grade currently. Might pick up before the end of the day (2.5 hrs time) but I don’t hold out hopes.

I did a gem continue on Day 3 for this one haha.
I had a series of very bad boards - literally full of the colours I did not need and then at the END when I die, it would fill it with the colours I needed haha. Love when that happens.

Day 1: Win 4 / Loss 1
Day 2: Win 2 / Loss 3
Day 3: Win 4 / Loss 1
(I did the gem continue because I lost the very first game on Day 3, so I still had 4 flags left to use)

Top 25% / 7,327 Score
Defense is doing better than previous: 4 Win / 2 Loss / A Grade

Day 2

  • Defense: 11-5 (17-9, A)

Day 3

  • Offense: 5-0 (15-0)

Day 4 Update

Score = 14882, Rank = 1564, Top 1%
NB - Score is adjusted to include defence

Offence
Managed to not forget about the riposte bug in the one fight i faced Boril… Interestingly A20 was against the same person I fought in A9… but for an extra 5 points… Guess they got a better difficulty bonus over time?

Overall am 17/20 on offence.

Defence
Only attacked once which I lost. Dropped me to exactly 50-50 win ratio.

Day 4

Offense

I won all 5, bringing me to 19-1 overall.

None of my attacks particularly stood out today. Some of the teams were a little stronger and harder, and some were aiming for good synergy with fewer Emblems, but none of them were particularly memorable to say much about.


Defense

I’ve continued to be attacked nonstop, and am teetering on the edge of an A or B.

I’m currently at a 59.5% win rate from a loss 20 minutes ago — earlier I was right at 60%, and earlier today I was around 61-something.

Hard to say which side it’ll land on a few hours from now, but the trend has definitely been downward.


Ranking

I’m currently in the Top 1%, which isn’t surprising for 19-1 and A Defense Grades for the first 3 days, but I was really shocked that I’m as high up as I am.

I thought my loss would have more impact.

Another 5-0 day on attack with blue/green stack + Proteus setups. Cheshire Cat almost killed me once because tiles came very slowly but managed to pull through. It helped that they had a Kashhrek as flank…
Defense got pummeled a bit, hanging onto a B rank.

Update Day 4

Attack: 4-1
Loss was quite annoying. DoT (fire) had broken my neck. His hero: 100HP, my both about 250; no tiles(neither to direct attack nor free one for mana and firing a special attack).

Defence:
Four time attacked. 3-1
Still D because of loosing to much at the beginning. Now 38,4% winning ratio.

Rank:
Top 10%
It was definitely worth to invest the gems for recognition of all mistakes I made at the first two days and reconsidering the strategy. Of course you need luck with the tiles but if you go with a carrot to High Noon Duel it‘s possible to lose…

Wish everybody luck and success for/at the last day. :four_leaf_clover:

Day 1: Win 4 / Loss 1
Day 2: Win 2 / Loss 3
Day 3: Win 4 / Loss 1
Day 4: Win 4 / Loss 1
Day 5: Win 5 / Loss 0

Defense: Grade A / 4 Win / 2 Loss
Score: 14,481 / Top 1% (I will definitely drop to 5% or 10%)

I started out very bad at this. By day 3 I had lost all lives, so did 1 Gem continue, lost only 1 since that (9 win and 1 loss). 5 wins on Day 5 which I was happy with

I lost a battle I really should have won but RNG was really being a poor sport.

But then I won a battle I should have lost, so it evened out.

Out with last flag today, A def all days, 1% should be set. Quite happy and hoping for some none-crap loot :slightly_smiling_face:

Day 4

Don’t remember much. Just remember I went 4-1. Defense still a D.

Day 5

The RNG gods have smiled on me, and I went 5-0. Top 1%. We’ll see where I’m at by the day’s end.

Defense still attacked a bunch and still a D.
