Probably better since my purples aren’t good and my best yellow and red.

  • Are there heroes you’re likely to use for this Tournament that you normally don’t make use of anymore?

No

  • Are there heroes you plan to power level for this Tournament, or level before the next time a Tournament like this one rolls

Calm down, calm down, nothing to see here, folks.

Put your Layla back in the freezer and start prepping your yellow tanks.

Anyone better than Li?

3 Likes

Defensively, I believe that Li is absolutely the best yellow 4* classic hero. But I’m not familiar with all the extra speshul heroes so there might be a better yellow somewhere… (currently trying to search for lists of all 4* yellows ever released to compare)

EDIT: possible contenders: Danz, Gretel, Jackal.

EDIT #2: Danz has highest HP but unpredictable special. Jackal has the strongest attack + fast mana, but not very tanky. Both Gretel and Li are good mana controllers, slight edge to Li in terms of tankiness.

Good call

My first post after reading forum for almost a year…how this looks? Any advice?

Possibly switch Chao and Li?

But that’s a decent line up

2 Likes

I think chao with +14 is better here then Li…maybe not🤔?

There’s a lot of love/hate for Danz… personally I have found him to be annoying to fight against. But every player has their own individual “worst enemies”, some heroes that others find difficult, I have no problem with, and vice versa.

Me when fighting Danz and he activates his special: “Please be snowflake… please be snowflake… come on, be snowflake…” SWORDS “Noooooooo!!!” :laughing:

As Li is average, she will fire much faster at flank and slow the whole enemy team. Chao will be just behind her. But the other way around may be less effective, with Li waiting in the corner.

Also, maybe switch troops between li and jackal to boost jackal’s flimsy defence a little.

Better?

That would be what I’d do, but you might get other opinions from the great and good :blush:

  • 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?

Ok-ish. I got 5 maxed yellows to field. No emblems, but it should be good enough. Bloody battle suits well, since none of them are healers. I’m glad It’s no purple instead of no yellow, as my purple roster is full of healers.

  • Are there heroes you’re likely to use for this Tournament that you normally don’t make use of anymore?

I more or less trained up Hu Tao for this purpose only.

  • Are there heroes you plan to power level for this Tournament, or level before the next time a Tournament like this one rolls around?

No. I already have all yellow vanilla 4* maxed and got no heroes to train. Only leveling up some 1-2* with the heroes I get from regular farming.

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

My yellow vanilla 4*s +Danza. Still debating whether Li Xiu or Hu Tao is the better tank.

  • 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?

Gretel and Guardian Jack would do well. Hu Tao and Li Xiu are difficult too. Got no way to deal with any of them, so I just have to power through.

  • Which of your heroes will you be likely to use on your Attack Teams?

Wilbur will most likely be in all teams, because he’s the only non-healer 4* I gave emblems too. I’m pretty limited. 3 usable colours and no healers, I don’t like fielding my defense debuffers (Gormek,Grimm,Buddy, Wilbur) together and the slow mana heroes are bad too. Scarlett & Kelile will propably be used a lot. Sonya and Caedmon are ok, though there are only 2 yellow 4* buffers. So depends a bit on if I’m facing a mono yellow or a mixed team.

  • Will the restrictions or special rule of this Tournament change your usual approach to color stacking or team building?

Pretty much the same answer as above. Yellow is weak, purple can’t be used, healers are useless (thouh BT/Kiril buff could be nice). I’ll propably stack 3 red + 2 blue or green, but it depends on the enemy.

I guess I will try this lot … any thoughts? At least they are all looking in the same direction!

Only have enough orbs for one. Have li at 4/70+6 and jackal at 4/70+11. Would you max Chao,or the monkey for my third defense option ?

Wu,no doubt…not so grate for defence but in this situation,he is better…later,he is game changer…

I bring what I have so far…

Other max heroes: Jack O’Hare+1, Hansel+3, Wilbur+5, Falcon+11.
I prefer def down Grimm, and next fast heroes with deal damage.
Any advices are welcome :ok_hand:

Which one would you chose or anything different? - Klick the picture.

The first one looks great referring to color distribution…but lacking Sonya as debuffer and having 3 fighters which talent ability will be disabled.
Looking forward to your advice.

So happy we don’t have to 1s or 2s! Please, can we not do that again?!?

But anywhoodles, here’s my lineup:
