Defender: Alasie +7, Zim +7, Telly +9, GM +12, Vela +1
Attacked with a reasonable lineup, but as usual board was “nope” (seriously, no matter what I try I get a “cruel joke board” 95% of the time vs Telly)… and lost… so I used my last flag on a out-there blue stack of:
Kiril +9, Vela +6, Sonya C +15, Grimm +15, Miki 3^70
By the second or third turn the game conjured up a 7-tile diamond-maker arrowed right down Telly’s throat. She fired of course, but I was charged too, so Kiril buys a round of drinks for the team, Grimm does a By-Ulf impersonation then stomps Telly, Vela washes away the pesky minions, Sonya C leaves GM weakened while also cleansing the team, then a few more nicely positioned tiles roll over GM. Sure, wasn’t the most strong of opponents, and it was mostly down to the early board and having a wide lane to use early on… but over the fight each hero still played their role with great timing (even Miki had his say vs Alasie and Zim when they were both charged) so it still felt really good.
