:left_speech_bubble: Before and During the Tournament: Share & Discuss Your Teams, Thoughts, Feedback, and Questions!

:speaking_head: Some topics to start off with:

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

  • Are there heroes youโ€™re likely to use for this Tournament that you normally donโ€™t make use of anymore?

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

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

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

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

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

  • Are there elements of this weekโ€™s Tournament that are unclear to you?

  • Do you have feedback on the Tournament matchmaking?


:clipboard: Defense Team Tracking

Hat tip to @wineybrit for originating this thread idea with the second Raid Tournament

With Raid Tournament matchmaking still being worked on, the distribution of attacks across players has been perplexing so far, and a frequent topic for discussion.

When posting, include:

  • Which day of the Tournament is it?

  • How may times have you been attacked today, and in total?

  • What is your Defense Teamโ€™s win/loss record today, and in total?

  • What Defense Grade does your Defense Team have?

  • Which heroes make up your Defense Team?

  • What is the Team Power of your Defense Team?

  • What is your current Tournament Score and Ranking?



:gem: After the Tournament: Share Your Results & Rewards!

  • What was your score and ranking?

  • What did you get for loot?

To reiterate what I said above, this will be the ONLY thread for the Ninth Raid Tournament.

Please share all feedback on matchmaking, and post all defense team performance tracking here, in addition to discussion and questions about this weekโ€™s Special Rule and Restrictions.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

No blue??? Again??? :man_facepalming:t2:

No blue is to encourage use of red. This way not only Sonya is out but also people may think twice if / how they use a host of green dispellers like Caedmon or Melendor.
Quite smart limitation actually. Last time on Buff Booster tournament they just switched off green iirc.
Good that I have Sabina ready xD

Two weeks ago, its already no blue, right?

Yeah we just did this oneโ€ฆ

Iโ€™m going with a mono red defense. Something like:

Scarlett - Falcon - Wilbur - Boldtusk - Gormek

Why no 3 star tournement , now is 4 weeks or longer that we dont have 3 star tournement ?

@zephyr1, any ideea about that?

No, Iโ€™m not sure if the weekly restrictions and Special Rule are being picked by Staff, are on some kind of rotation (doesnโ€™t seem like it), or are just RNG.

I also donโ€™t know how, if at all, having several weeks without Tournaments may have affected any potentially intended rotation.

Do you really think that Wilbur is a good idea? He gives a buff to all opponents as well.

Yeah but that was 5*.

@Alaine

No problem, since he gives 63% def up to your team and 44% def down to the others.

The little att up for damage sharing wonโ€™t count much then.

blehโ€ฆ really wanted a 3 star buff booster tourny as like none of my 4 stars buff lol. Donโ€™t mind no blue so much this time around.

Iโ€™m hoping my 4/70^4 Colen at tank causes people problems as itโ€™ll be harder to explode him with no blue.

all in all another early exit and crap loot looks to be coming my way. Iโ€™d seriously rather play the old tournament with crap loot and one less day. The extra day guaranteeโ€™s I wonโ€™t be placing well so in a lot of ways, even though the loot was โ€œimprovedโ€ itโ€™s much much harder for me to get so overall loot is much worse for me now.

Sucks such a promising feature is now pretty much just โ€œfill raid chests fasterโ€ for me.
