There’s a lot of focus in these forums on making raid defense the best it can be.
I’d like to take a moment to point out another perspective. Please note this perspective comes from a player who can compete in Diamond league without much issue. This advice is NOT for those struggling to stay in Diamond.
There are benefits to having a ‘good enough’ raid defense team. ‘Good enough’ for me means waking up to 2350-2450 cups.
Hero Wanted Mission chest will fill more efficiently, because the fights aren’t as punishing.
You’ll see a wider variety of heroes to fight. I find that MORE FUN than fighting the same 4400TP+ teams over and over (I’m looking at YOU Kunchen and Guin!).
You can divide emblems between heroes, instead of going all-in on one. That can go a long way in improving your war roster.
I understand each of those points can be argued IF you have reasons to hold higher cups (ego, alliance requirements, etc). Maybe ‘good enough’ isn’t ideal for some players. I personally don’t mind at ALL that my team gets knocked down to 2400 cups every day. That’s the sweet spot. My less-than-perfect team HELPS others fill their chests.
My point is - don’t stress about making your best possible raid defense. Good enough is good enough.
