Thoughts on Tower of Tornadoes
FTP player, poor bench. 7 5* heroes, 5 vanilla, most poorly emblemed. Troops between 12 and 16.
No battle items used whatsoever. Finished level 20. After level 8 had to switch to 4*. After level 15 had to switch to 5*. Level 21 played twice and lost. Played level 21 10x in auto as my bench was depleted. One round used 5 3* and 4* healers. Was funny to watch the ai systematically target them from wings to flanks to tank and curse them all out in one round.
Up to level 6, curses appeared every other turn, then every turn for the remainder. Clear one then another follows. Healers targeted first, with back to back targeting to curse them out in one round. Used the freebie refill. Received only one coin per round for a total of 20.
Once I saw the nature of the event, I knew I would not be able to place very well, hence I opted not to waste resources for battle items. I am trying to level my few heroes and troops; for me that is a priority. What good are the emblems if there are no heroes to give them to? Maybe someday I will be able to make a good go of it, but right now it is not worth it for me. Next time I will likely just do a few rounds, get my few emblems and move on.
Reality is the power creep is such I will likely never be able to get out of the bottom tier. Something to strive for? I would rather work on other events, war and titans. Better chance to do better, at least for now.
Bravo to everyone who finished.
