Normally I’m raiding enemies with a stength from 3.800 to 4.000. But from time to time I climb the stairs up and then I get people from the TOP 100. So getting 2.650 cups is possible for me. But because my defence is limited I loose cups quite fast till about 2.400 to 2.500 where I can stay over a longer time.
But no matter if TOP 100 or 1000 - I see nearly no defence team with only TC20 heroes. So a few hours ago I looked at the Top 50 and wrote down their defences.
Not a single one was using five standard 5* heroes. One used four 5* from TC20, eight people had two in their teams. But 15 had 5 and 15 had 4 non standard 5* heroes in it.
The most popular defence heores were:
Gravemaker (37 of 250)
The ratio special to TC20 was 185:65 where 24 of the 65 came from Sartana.
Only two of the watched 50 teams were not using one of these four special heroes, but 13 used four and 15 used three of them.
So why am I writing that down? Quite often I read here in this forum that you can reach a lot with TC20 heroes and you would not need all those HOTM or special heroes. But then I see what I’m fighting in the raids and I ask myself where all those good teams are that are only using TC20 5*?
So what’s your opinion? Can you compete only with TC20 or with the heroes you get from the epic tokens?
