Since I can’t use 3 T-Rex in this one, I used 3 pteranadons!

The result!


VICTORY!

The pace of the tournament is more squirrelly than normal, it looks like it will end somewhere around 1,000. My recommendation since this is ending ~5 hours earlier than normal that you aim for 1,100-1,200 plus if you want to guarantee a finish in Dominator unless you can watch the rankings until the end.

For AFV to win, it really matters if you can get class advantage.

Meat shield to charge up, followed by glass canons can win with a much lower AFV if played right and even lower if you get class advantage.

Also, if you can get the ai to burn a point swapping and get class advantage, AFV needed to win goes even lower. That doesn’t matter as much in this tourney, since if you play with 2 or more birds, you can get class advantage. Like explains why I’m winning about 80% vs my normal 50 to 60%.

My strongest Dino is a trex. I aim for meat shields in the 1550+ range. My glass cannons are 527+ attack. (Common vip lev 10). I like 600 attack, but I don’t have as many Dino’s with that.

I found that the GamingBeaver’s strat of level 1 common - big creature - level 1 common works pretty decently too. Level 30 Tapejalosaurus can pull that off in the middle Predator, at least.

878 trophies (88th place) in Dominator, 100 is 863 with 11:40 to go – this is gonna come down to the wire and I’m probably going to have to use some saved-up bucks on recharges.

The key is to have your overall ferocity within Ludia’s preset threshold for 40 trophies. If you dip below that, the AI will generate opponents that’ll ridiculously overpower your team. For example, when I sandwich a level 20 metriaphodon between two level 10 common amphibs, I’ll only receive 36 trophies per win. If I had any commons still at level 1, that might bump the reward up maybe by 1 trophy. Early on I tried a level 10 sandwich of the superhybrid tapy bird, and got overwhelmed. When I picked a stronger third dino, got 40 trophies against winnable opponents,

Now you have to win one with three legendary amphibians. :wink:

I’m hanging in at #99 in Dominator with 932 trophies (tied with the 100th spot). I had to pay to by pass my cool down. I was so pissed. I was about to win and while I was talking with my son, Google apparently through I said Ok Google and popped up. When I went back to the JWTG screen, I got kicked out of my match, lost, and my creatures were on cool down :persevere:. I bought them back (same exact ones), got a similar match up, and won. Of course I disabled Google Assistant before starting the game back up, lol.

If anyone will be awake for the last couple of hours it would be great to get some data to see how this ends up…

If it doesn’t slow down like a typical tournament then we are looking at something between 1,000 and 1,050 if it does slow down it is possible it wont break 1,000 since the slow down is typically 4-5 hours out from the finish of the tournament. Time will tell, good luck everyone.

I’m praying for it to slowdown. If not, I might have to try and wake up before it ends (5am for me) and sneak back into Dominator.

Fyi, I was at #1 or #2 in Predator and used an AF of 2394.13 and received 38 trophies.

Uggh, that kind of thing really sucks! I always worry about getting a phone call I need to take in the middle of a tournament match, but at least I can afford to lose one once in awhile.

Just dropped to #1 in Predator again. Used an AF of 2396.73 and received 39 trophies. Sitting at #86 in Dominator now with 971 trophies. Hopefully I’ll get lucky and that will last me throughout.

I don’t think I’ll be up for the end of the tournament unless something comes up. This might be final for me, I’m 8th at 1817 trophies:

Good luck to anyone trying to fight for a spot!

Also @Bandeezee, just wanted to let you know and possibly some peace of mind since you’re close and working hard; let’s say you were #1 in Predator with 1 minute left in tournament because you waited for cooldown and lost the last battle.

Even though a battle takes 3-5 minutes, with 1 minute left, as long as you click “Battle” and win that last one, when you come out of the battle victorious, the system adds up the points you just received and will push you through Dominator if you have enough to pass the #100 position.

That’s great to know, thank you. I don’t know if I’ll wake up in time, but I’ll try.

What do you expect from this weekends bracketed tournament,I do not know about the higher divisions,but since Pteranodon got a hybrid,I expect there will be a Pteranodon for the lower division

That is what I did for my previous predator finish.

That is what I want to do for a second predator finish. I just hope it works out in my favour. I am currently #3 in hunter . I tried to push into predator playing a match,but got matched against a Suchoripterus 28,Eudimorphodon 20,Eryops 39.
