@Frosty This happened yesterday but I forgot to post it. Is this you?

For reference, the Henry has a blade tome, draw back, and iceberg. Everyone else was pretty vanilla except for Effie who was running a standard Brave Lance set.

Fjorm and Zeglius will make this an annoying season. I should run Fjorm for scoring reasons, but I'll choose the black bride for fun. 

I'm not so far away from staying in tier 20 this week, Shiro should be bonus unit more often ...

Almost had a really a really amazing run earlier in the week, but messed up and had to start over again which turned out not to be that awful since my score ended up higher anyway. Ending this season with 3656 which is good for rank 2953/6016 at the moment. Also snagged 6 defense wins. It was Mae's first time in the Arena, and she put in some great work. I'm very proud of her! Amelia too. I thought she would be dead weight, but she did more than her fair share.

Tried AA a few times this week and ended up disappointed, but finally got my deathless run yesterday worth 5142 (rank 2270). That might be enough for the top 3k. I'm not really hurting for feathers anymore...but it's a matter of pride. lol I tried to just make set teams to use, but I'm finding it's way more fun to hand pick characters for each battle...even if it's time consuming. i also faced that all Roy team again. XD I let Cecilia eliminate Bow Roy and parked Nephenee on a defense tile so she could handle the rest.

I'm pretty excited for next season. I get to run Fjorm again along with Merric, Raven, and Lucius. Gonna give Lucius a Water Blessing for extra points. According to the calculator, I may get some matches worth 740 which I'm super excited for after having to REALLY fish for good matches these past few seasons.

They just had to make all the random bonus unit options appealing, didn’t they?

I’m a little tired of Armors I guess, so Effie & Zelgius are out. Julia is incredibly tempting, but I also want to try out the SS-themed Tactics team I built for Fjorm’s bonus rotations (starring Eirika, obviously), which I haven’t done yet.

Official arena bonus units:

 

Okay, great, B!Tharja already show she'll be a great focus for the next season, since I'm using my trio of arena plus her for the TT.

On another note, I tried with another team for this week's arena. Around 694 points, and the first three matchs have Magic!Reinhardt in my opposent team (and two Horse Emblem). Win all match, but got some death. Well, I don't care, since there are no ranking rewards anymore outside of tier ranking, and I'm already sure I'll drop down to 19, since even my best team cannot score the points I need to stay. So.... meh.

Holy crap, I took out Lukas for Serra on my Defense team, and I went from 2 wins to 14+ in the past 3-4 days.

She doesn't even have anything like CC + Vantage. Just a mixed bulk set with Pain+ and single Savage Blow.

Dr. Sakura just prescribes death for everyone.

Speaking of Dr. Sakura, maybe next week I will try both her and Serra on my defense team. I can give them both water blessings so that Fjorm can make them even more disgusting to deal with...

Final hours arena run ended with another secure score to maintain my position in T20, rank ~3,100.

I'm not sure if my +2 Effie will provide the same score as what my +4 Amelia could. If it doesn't make too much of a difference, I may also be to stay in T20 for the next 2 weeks, too.

Score time:

  • Tier 20 score of 3654 - #3396/6132
  • AA score of 5192 - #1387

Forgot to swap Draug's Pivot to a Dual Rally, which cost me points in AA. Not that it matters much, though, since it was water week, meaning I'm pretty sure even my absolute top end would have fallen out.

Was gonna screen shot last week's scores and put them up with this post, since I was on vacation, but I forgot and missed the turnover. They really weren't much different from this week's, though, since I'm stuck unable to get more copies. I've been fairly light on pulling, but still gunning for green and blue, but no Sheena, Gwens or Florinas in sight. Hoping for an influx of Gwens when I go for Fjorms on this legendary banner, though.

Still in line to go back to tier 20 as always. Got around 7 def wins this time despite Ike not being very useful outside of being a Def Tactic bot, next week will be Fjorm's turn so it'll be alright.

Well, 5,082 isn't going to cut it for the top 5k in AA. I'm at rank 4,985 right now and although it's just 1 hour left it's almost guaranteed that I'm going to fall off. Ugh...So close yet so far.

Darn, no time to do a deathless AA streak.

last attempt had me wiped out by a SS themed team of Lute, L’Ephraim, Eirika and a forged Silver Sword Seth in the damned boat map. I thought my Shiro could tank the cavaliers but i miscalculated the enemy range so Shiro was attacked by a doubling Flame Siegmund. He survived with 4 HP although Seth ended up dealing the exact 4 HP needed to defeat Shiro.

-Def sucks @mampfoid @Ginko :(

7 defense wins this week. Not sure if Lyn Emblem + bonus is doing something or people are just surrendering because of 3 Lyns + bonus.

Season 69 Results:

Score: 3,646
Defense: 612
Rank: Tier 20 --> 20

HtN3yEA.png

My core team is just about done growing, I think.  Putting it on the Arena score calculator shows that no further 240 SP skills on Shanna and Narcian would bump my score range up.  If things start getting close, I can still equip the double rallies normally reserved for AA runs on Shanna and maaaaaybe Caeda.  Amelia with boss stats was kind of fun.  At least, in the few matches she could keep up and have an opportunity to fight something.  

Arena Assault:

Rank: 4,306

I've begun a Tiki merge project, so I'm hoping she'll be ready to help bump my scores here soon.

Wholly expected but still kinda sad that 3534 isn't enough to regain T20. If I had given regular Ike a Water blessing it might've been enough but given that'd be useful for all of one week, it's a false economy (1200 feathers for 1 blessing isn't a worthwhile trade).

Offense score of 3654 (T20) remains in T20, combining with a defense score of 620 for max rewards.

Teams faced (streak):

As a bit of an experiment, I tried running my old Eirika/Nino/Azura/Anna team to see if it could score high enough to hold T20. It couldn't (at least, not without heavy fishing), falling below the cutoff with 2 days to go. So I went back and threw together a streak with last week's "wait for Hector to finish soloing the map" team, and did some core restructuring. I'm especially looking forward to Sharena's next shot in the bonus rotation.

@mcsilas ouch, AA is already hard but being short on time makes it a pain. Good luck next season! 

I went down to tier 19 like always, but this time I was short only 1k ranks to stay in Tier 20 (checked 40 minutes before closing time). Since Shiro has +5 merges and expensive skills, my core will need a lot of additional merges to repeat that with a +0 bonus unit. 

AA had me on a 6k-ish rank.

Wrathful Dazzling healers are cancer and you cannot deny it in any way, shape, or form.

In other news, this looks like my highest score to date. 3,558 ÷ 5 × 7 ≈ 4,981 under old scoring. Feels good, man.

They are basically just "Firesweep colorless tomes". With a whole lot less skills for extra firepower. While Firesweep is annoying, it isn't too hard to deal with.

The Serra I am running only has Dazzling on her weapon. I think her healing my super bulky units back up to full is what is screwing people up...
