: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 week’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 you’re likely to use for this Tournament that you normally don’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?

  • Do Costumes affect your team selection at all?

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

  • Are there heroes you expect to see on Enemy Defenses that you think you’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?

The next Tournament in sequence in the history is a 3* Bloody Battle with no element restrictions.

It’ll be interesting to see if we see that exact format, as we did for 6 Tournaments in a row following the previous sequence, or if it’s slightly modified, like last week’s, which changed from no restrictions to disallowing ice/blue.

Still not at the point where I started posting my tournament stuff on the forum. Last time this tournament featured (July 28th, 2019 - 15th tournament) I set the below defence and got a defence rating of B,D,D,C,D:

Or swap Gato & Mnesseus…might be better.

I’m not going to use my arman cause it seems a waste with his healing reduction. I’m torn on shrub (or in my case gunnar as well) as I’m not sure its going to be reliable enough at slow with no healing. I’m tempted to try this:

But I could swap Melia in for a bane and or Cochin in for the bat

Going a bit mixed.

Ei-Dunn+2, Gato+9, Shrubbear+18, Bauchan+1, Bjorn+2

Some beef, some punch, some controlling behaviour… It will hopefully be annoying if nothing else.

I am going to try Guardian Bat / Shrubbear / Bauchan / Shrubbear / Bane with Costume bonus

I’m mainly using Arman for his dot.

He’s sturdy enough that he SHOULD fire when protected by Bauchan and Shrubbear.

But we’ll see I guess :slight_smile:

Planning to use this:

Looks good, there’s a fun dilemma there… In an ideal world you want your dispel on the left and ideally your +crit on the left too.

No wrong answers there IMHO

placement of +crit doesn’t matter because specials can’t crit and slash attacks only resolve after specials.

Doh, early morning moment

And I worked so hard to get Hawkmoon levelled in time for this next 3* :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Glad it’s not another 5* though.

Here’s my ROSTER if anyone has any suggestions for a better line-up

Last time I ran this, with an A Defense Grade:


Thinking I’ll run a similar team this time:

I’d run Mnesseus left wing (dispel first!)…

If nothing else:
If someone (eg: me) brings Shrubbear against you, you’ll dispel taunt first before firing AoE…
If someone brings Gunnar or Kailani, you’ll dispel their defence buff before firing AoE.

On top of this, anyone bringing yellows for GilRa is gonna then have a harder time getting through Melia than hitting neutrals on Mnesseus

IMHO there’s basically no reason to run those two the other way around.

Last Time

Defense Final Result is Grade B.

Now 1st Draft


Other options…

I’m not sure if this defense is better, I think I will change with last time focus on fast heroes.
Let see…

This should do it… I hope :joy::star_struck:

Aiming to flip the tables by slowing enemy mana (Ei-Dunn) and speed mine up (Bauch).

Shrub is nice and beefy and Gato and Bjorn hit nicely for three’s.

Time will tell, but I think this should work.
