First post here, looking for advice as none of the threads I’ve found shed light on my problem.
I’ve been playing for just under 3 weeks, slowly levelling a small group of heroes and reaching the silver arena a few days ago. I’m now on around 800 trophies, give or take a hundred or so.
I’m starting to find raiding really difficult, as I can’t find an opponent with similar team power to me, even after several re-rolls. Even opponents with a lower trophy count than I have seem to have stronger teams. I did wonder if I’ve seen somehow gone higher than my team justifies, but the team is winning against invaders so I don’t think the team is the problem, even if the AI is better at guiding it than I am.
After reading some of the raiding advice I thought I’d just give up hope of actually winning and just try to kill a hero or two for the chest before being wiped out. But I’m having difficulty doing even that.
As I only have 7 usable heroes I can’t choose my team to respond to my opponents (though I’ll certainly revisit that advice when I get to that stage). But I’m wondering if I should be arranging them differently or if there’s something else I need to take account of. Or should I just accept that I’m in an awkward spot and that I won’t be able to raid until I’ve strengthened my heroes?
Hawkmoon (fully maxed)
Gunnar (Tier 3 Level 24)
Ulmar (Tier 1 Level 1 - I’ve been wanting to max Gunnar first)
Elkanen (Tier 2 Level 15)
Bane (Tier 3 Level 35)
Tyrum (Tier 3 Level 1)
Layla (fully maxed)
In defence I arrange them Hawkmoon - Elkanen - Gunnar - Bane - Tyrum.
In attack it’s usually the same, though for Titans I replace the colour weak against the Titan with a second hero of the strong colour.
It’s going to be a few days before I reach TC 13 so I’m planning to use elemental summons to get another red hero next before my roster is overrun with red feeders. After that I’ll be aiming to get another yellow and another green.
