Congrats! That's pretty nice that you got another Throne!

I hope you can get a Golden Trophy soon.

Thanks! I was not expecting a Gold Throne since scoring seemed really competitive. I guess I lucked out on defense.

I think I finally did it! I've created the ultimate offense team that that turns AR into a complete zero-effort cake walk! lol

I've been using this team and lost zero units this week without even really trying. Every single friend map I've tested this on has been beaten. Things that used to scare the pants off me like Ruptured Sky dou Alfonse/Lysithea/Thrasir, Lunge Eliwood, Legendary Alm, Blazing Light Ophelia, and the like are all nothing more than fleeting thoughts now! lol I think the one and only unit in the entire game I need to watch out for is Legendary Chrom with a pre-charged Deadeye, but even that ain't too threatening; with some careful positioning to have Edelgard smash his skull in, or a simple use of Idunn's skill, and even he poses little threat.

I just have to keep them all clumped together and they can march across just about any map without a care in the world. I just move into enemy range, tank everything with no effort, then let Reginn and Edelgard clean house. To think AR could go from a nightmare to a cake walk from the introduction of just two new skills; I never imagined there could be one individual banner that could change the game this much! lol

I ranked 1,575! This is my third Gold Throne. Having the right defense Mythics definitely helped.

Yeah, the Save skills seem to be the new BH!Ike-BH!Lucina combo.

I am kind of tempted to replace one of my BH!Ike super tank team and run a double super tanks team. I could repurpose one of the BH!Ike to Dark defense and run triple Triandras.

I have a Restore Trap and a Rally Trap set up in this config, but I had yet to see Alphonse rallying where he went on this clip. 

I really don't understand what the player did at the end with Altina. It makes no sense to do what he did.

I'm pretty satisfied with how this team is doing.

Hit T39 for the first time! Only 40 points lost on defense, and a perfect offense score even without needing ladders.

Ninja Lyn got her chance to shine, although I didn't actually end up using her much. Cecilia is still my champion.

You all have been quite helpful the few times I've shown up on this forum, and so if anyone else uses the Duel Simulator I want to help you out.

https://arcticsilverfox.com/feh_sim/

On the right side, where it says Enemies, click 'import' and copy and paste this list I made

https://docs.google.com/.../1TvZU.../edit...

And away you go! The simulator doesn't auto-generate most of the 2nd column, so make sure you're going in and adding if your enemy has dragonflowers, mythic support etc to make it accurate. And do the same thing for the first column, skills like Chills or Atk/Spd Solo are off by default.

It's up to date as of the spring Myrrh banner. I took the top two tiers of Gamepress' best ranked units, 221 in total. They rate units based on Aether Raids, so there might be a few good arena units that didn't make it in, but overall I'd say they're quite similar. I used the starred build(s) that GP recommends. I made modifications here and there, if they hadn't updated it with atk spd solo 4, for example, or bc they lacked the hyper speedy Bike build that I use to win AR. All units are +10.

GP hasn't updated their rankings for this banner, but I assume that spring Myrrh and Severa will get in. If Inigo manages to get ranked in the top two tiers as well, I'll add him later.

Good luck out there!

PS: @Namero that's a sick team, congrats! I want to max Edelgard anyway for arena, I'm just waiting for her re-run. I really missed the boat on the Save skills and will have to wait until non-seasonal units have them.

I've been getting frustrated by Plumeria seasons, since I have 1-2 merges on all my other Astra mythics, so having to field her means getting 388-point matches rather than 390. But I usually run Guinivere in three of my Astra teams, and Marianne takes her place nicely this week, meaning I don't actually have to include Plumeria.

It's a bit risky, since it does mean big point loss if anything goes wrong, but I've still got two teams where I'm running Plumeria for the safer 388, while in the other three I can try for 390. My Astra seasons have been pretty successful, so I think it'll go fine. If I run out of ladders I can switch to all Plumeria teams to be safe, I guess.

I'm trying a new def team for this season, can anyone who has me added as a friend check it out to see if there's nothing absurdly wrong with what I'm doing?

Made it to tier 39 for the first time as well, got really lucky with my defense team this week, with only 3 successes but all of them happened when lift loss control wasn't active.

Ugh. Lost all my Ladders today and lost a further match, so I am dropping out for sure. I do not think I am sleep deprived, but I probably should probably tackle Aether Raids during the morning when I am well rested and matches become easier.

I guess I will just Auto-Dispatch for the rest of the week.

@Javi Blizz is your name on the game Javi? If it is, got matched with you earlier today. Hope you were on lift protection

Nope, it’s Blizz. Anyway, don’t worry, it’s easy enough to keep T21 so I don’t care too much for AR-D 😉

By some miracle, I finally finished in tier 38 for the first time -- in Light season, no less!

I made a huge mistake of using Dagr as my bonus unit, but in the 6th slot... this cost me 20 aether per match (40 per doubles), and because of that no Tier 38 for me (I would be in Tier 39 if wasn't for that mistake).

Oh well, no huge problems. At least next season will be easier.

@XRay here it is:

Weakest link on this season's team is Maribelle. I need to stop being lazy and finish training and getting the flowers from Sara and Mikoto so I can fodder them and build a better cav healer (need to choose between Nana and Priscila, also). 
Iago was an inclusion this week and he's doing his job of guaranteeing T1 debuffs on all foes (with sudden panic, there's no way for the foe to avoid on T1, either they're beside someone and get Panic'd or they're separate and get his weapon's guard + debuff). 

For Dark/Light Season I have something pretty similar. Reinhardt, Cav Eirika, Phyton, B!Veronica, Triandra and whatever Mythic is a bonus unit on that season. If it is Trianda, I can either use Aversa to have some debuffs or Brammy with a Rally Trap.

I see. I think I will try using Spring Breeze and maybe Lava Floes. I was using Desert and it usually stops working well after the second or third day, I guess maybe it is due to my team being a bit too spread out over six lanes rather than five here.

I will need to invest more into my Mirabilis too. I think mine just has her base kit right now.

I thought about using the Desert map, but I think it makes it a little easier to engage with fliers. Since everybody got N!Lyn I opted to go with this one to make this route a little harder.
