When I first started playing in the wars, I really only had one team of heroes. After a couple of months I have enough heroes to assemble six full teams.
My preferred attack team is four Epic 3-60s and a fully ascended Rare Hero with TP 2803. But I have a lot of options for defense. I understand the general strategy that a rainbow defense is preferable to a team that is heavy in one color. And up to this point I’ve been using my attack team as my defense team, with the assumption that a high 2000’s Team Power is strong enough to withstand attacking from weak players.
But now I’m wondering if I’m actually hurting my alliance by using my strongest heroes for war defense. It seems like I’m free to attack using whoever I want, so the points I score aren’t dependent on defense. But any player at Team Power 3000 or above can usually wipe me out. So am I just giving the enemy alliance “free” points? Would my alliance be better served if my defense team was much weaker, say Team Power 1600 or 1800?
Thanks in advance for your help!
