meh another 5* tournament. Let’s get back to 3 and 4* tournaments.


If this format projection holds, it’s a good tournament for 25 tournament POV credit.

I will suck at this tourney, my best heroes are green. The only good thing is, i have richard with emblems for a tank.

Most of my fives are heavily offense-minded and lacking in buffs.

BK at tank is a given… But beyond that, the only buffs I have are Vivica (non costume) and Guardian Kong.
I’m not running a second red and I don’t think slow hero’s will get to fire enough in this one so Vivica is put too.

Probably going to have to just go with a powerful attacking lineup and cross fingers.

If that’s what it is, I’m just gonna go with my standard war defense:


I will setup just like my raid defense:


Initial defensive lineup:

Other options

Buff Makers:

  • Morgan Le Fey - 4/80 +19
  • Khiona - 4/80 +5
  • Costume Rigard - 4/70 +15
  • Grazul - 4/80
  • Elena (costume) - 4/80
  • Inari - 4/80

Other 5*

  • Yunan - 4/80 +16
  • Onatel - 4/80 +11
  • Drake Fong - 4/80 +9
  • Kunchen - 4/80
  • Lianna (costume) - 4/80 +9
  • Rana - 4/80

If u care for advice I would swap kingston with seshat. That way since specials fire off left to right when kingston hits the remaining heroes will go after reducing their attack even more before there next turn.

If this does happen, I am shocked to not see Snow White for this kind of tournament. I can imagine she can be devastating in this kind of rule set. I personally don’t have her but as soon as I see this modifier I immediately think of her.

I feel like we will see many use their raid defence… my likely team will be:

Other buff booster options would be frida +7, hatter +0 or costume Viv +0


If it’s another 5* tourney I may struggle!


we need a petition to get rid of 5 star tourneys and bring back 1 and 2 star tournies.


First draft ideas (EDIT: from before we found out blue was disallowed)

Open to ideas…


JF Melendor Richard Seshat Joon?

Although it’d be nice to have JF closer to the centre


This could be my team but Magni is a little fragile

Yeah, I think so, both for Buff Booster, and for getting enemies within range of sniper kills.

To that point, there’s always:

No blue in this one for some reason (probably so I can’t make Aegir tank)

Definitely fascinating that we finally broke the cycle after 7 weeks — but it’s still the same rarity and Special Rule.

Perhaps we’ll see the color restrictions vary, in order to balance out. They haven’t been even across the Tournaments so far.

For me personally, that inclines me more toward JF as tank, as in my post above, but I’ll obviously modify to drop Magni.
