Our alliance runs purple tanks, and while I do have Ursena, due to my limited 5* roster I’m finding it difficult to setup the most optimal AW defense.
This is all the maxed 4* and 5* I have:
Ursena is the obvious tank choice, although I’m struggling a bit to piece together the rest of the team.
For a full rainbow option, I’m thinking something like this:
I’m not a huge fan of flanking Telly since she becomes much less effective in that position. Only saving grace is the upcoming war is field aid, so if she can stall out the attackers after Ursena has fallen then the rest of the team can hopefully finish them off.
If we removed Telly from the equation, it means I need to either put in another blue or another purple. I really dislike not using Jabberwock on D, plus with two purples it really baits the attackers to bring yellows, so the double purple option is this:
The obvious risk of course is if the attackers do stack yellow and get a semi-decent board, this defense doesn’t stand a chance.
So the safest play I suppose is the double blue option:
There’s no obvious temptation to stack yellow since all it does is take out Ursena faster if the board is good, but completely destroy you if the board sucks. Double blue would tempt a green stack if not for GM, so most likely the attackers will run a blue stack, with the obvious advantage of being neutral to 4 heroes and strong against one. And blue has no shortage of healers and snipers.
Now I did mention I hate flanking Telly, but if it means I force attackers to stack differently, then that might be an ok compromise, so my last idea is this:
Double purple tempts a yellow stack, with the same caveats as the other double purple option. My hope here is, with Telly and GM on flank, the attackers would prefer to stack red, which I’m ok with since red has the least amount of fast snipers (literally only Marjana for now), and the only cleanser (Zimkitha) is a past HoTM so availability is likely limited. Of course they could always decide to ignore Telly and focus on GM and still stack blue, in which case it’ll really depend on the board.
Yeah IDEK anymore, seems like every setup has a glaring weakness lol.
