Early Game Tips
Use a combination of tanks, dps, and support in your formation. Synergize your alliances as much as possible. Alliances you should focus on early:
In the formation shown below we have Pudge, Lycan, Tusk, Drow, Batrider, and Shadow Shaman, which unlocks the following bonuses:
- 3 Warriors = +10 armor for warriors
- 2 Trolls = +35 att spd for trolls +10% att spd for all allies.
- 2 Heartless = -5 armor for opponents
- 2 Savage = +10% att dmg for all allies
Positioning your units properly wins games. How you position your units depends on their abilities. Melee are at the front, ranged at the back. Positioning a Drow or Sniper in the corner with units in front protects them from assassins. Put Medusa near the front to trigger her ability early for maximum affect. You should learn to adapt your board positioning depending on how your opponents are playing.
Keep units you want to upgrade on the bench, but also buy units that could potentially reach 2-star level and replace a weaker unit on the board. Try and keep your bench full each round, but also keep in mind your interest points at 10, 20, 30, etc. Consider selling some units to reach the next interest milestone.
When your bench is full, you can move units onto the board after a fight, allowing for more room on your bench to buy new units. Sell the units you don’t want to keep before the round timer ends. This tactic increases your chance of getting 2-star units.
