Strategic Victory in Event Rounds

As the weekly events lurk round the corner it’s time to brush up on your battle tactics to increase your chances of the ultimate victory and the most glorious of prizes. We explore the strategic ways to improve your battle success.

 

Rounds of death and glory

During weekly events you will likely come across a different type of combat madness. Combat rounds include multiple battles which you must complete in order to advance to the next stage in the event.

Should you gain victory after a round, you will be shown a new set of opponents. You will have then have the opportunity to move and change your gladiators should you choose to do so, which could be very strategic.

As well as this, between rounds you will get to choose a special power up out of a selection of 3. You will always be able to select one powerup at no cost, however can pay with gems to additionally activate the other powerups during the next round.

These powerups can include health boosts to heal your injured gladiators in the arena, increased tactical points, or boosts to movement, attack or defense.

Redeployed success

As with normal combat, status effects can be inflicted on your gladiators during battle. If you are successful and defeat the opponent, but your gladiators still experience a conditioning effect, that condition will remain for the next round.

It must be noted however, that you can remove your gladiators from the arena before the next round begins which will also remove their status effects.

This can be extremely strategic as it means you won’t start the next battle with stunned gladiators!

You can still decide to redeploy the same gladiator back into the arena, and you simply position them in your desired location in the arena as normal.

But be careful! If your gladiators have still have active skills at the end of a successful round, removing them from the arena will also remove their active skills. This means that even if you redeploy them in the arena, their active skill will not be operating at the start of the next combat.

How to boss the rounds of combat

Practise makes perfect when trying to create a strategy for combat rounds. This means that having a knowledge of how the rounds work, and in particular the final round, is vital to your event success.

It’s very common for the final rounds of events to include a singular mighty boss who can send your gladiators straight to the Infirmary with one quick swing of their sword.

This means it may be strategic to save your best gladiators, particularly those with the highest health, till the final rounds.

Using this tactic will mean your strongest gladiators will have the best change and defeating the most challenging part of the rounds.

As outlined in a previous blog posts about single bosses such as the Undertaker and the Wall, strategy is crucial to beat them. Only the strongest and most strategic will survive these legendary beasts and last to see the ultimate victory and glory.

So it’s time to brush up on your battle tactics, train your gladiators, and get ready to head for the event arenas and test out your epic new strategy for the combat rounds!

Prepare to become the ultimate Clan Battle champion

The Clan Battles have officially begun so it’s time to raise your flags high and proud. Prepare your clans with the ultimate fighting strategy and you could be victorious in the battle for triumph and glory.

24 hours later

The epic Clan Battles begin through the Games of Glory page where your clan leaders and generals can start the search for an opposing clan of similar power.

Once an enemy clan has been selected for the battle, you will have 24 hours to get ready for battle.

Using this 24 hours period wisely to prepare your fellow clan members, discuss tactics, and create a strategy, could make or break your victory.

This preparation period is vital for deliberating the ultimate strategy with your clan members to decide which colosseums to attack. Will you all follow the same path and focus on long-duration capture of colosseums with the highest points, or will you all attack all the colosseums to capture as many as possible for a short period of time?

Sharing is caring

As we outlined in a previous blog post, the Clan Building brings some very special time-limited bonuses created from orbs that the clan donate.

The Clan Battle is a perfect opportunity to strategize the use of these bonuses and may persuade you to act for the greater good of the clan and donate some of your orbs.

Discussing this strategy in the clan chat is vital as no one will benefit from orb bonuses if no one donates or if everyone requests.

Having a select few members requesting orbs (particularly the green and orange orbs for defensive and offensive combat bonuses) will be more beneficial to the clan overall than if everyone receives 2 orbs for instance.

If some users use these bonuses during the Clan Battle, their chance of success in the arena increases which will increase the amount of points won and therefore improve your chances of clan victory and incredible prizes!

Command a fantastic victory

An important tactic for battle strategy is consistent communication with your clan. Not only is the clan chat easily accessible on the left of your clan battle screen, but also your clan leaders and generals will have the opportunity to signal colosseums to the clan.

Powerful clan members will be able to choose a colosseum and “command” the clan to attack it.

Using a command on a colosseum will place a flag on it which will act as a signal to the other clan members about where the leaders think would be most tactical to attack.

Up to 5 commands can be made at any one time, and each one will last a limited duration, so think carefully about how to share your strategy.

Power is a dangerous thing

During the Clan Battle the power of clan generals is fully exploited. Clan leaders can promote clan members to become generals, and demote generals to a regular clan member status.

Whilst there is no limit to the amount of generals you clan can have, it should be incorporated into your battle plan.

Too many clan generals and the battle strategy may become confusing or conflicted, with commands not tactically making sense across the arena which could cost you the victory.

Clan leaders have the ultimate power to demote generals from their authority through the Clan Building by tapping on the member’s name.

Will your clan be full of equality and allow for a balanced power and discussion of strategy, or will you prefer a hierarchy of power within your clan?

The ultimate Clan Battle strategy

Whilst there is no perfect strategy for the Clan Battles, and each clan will have a different battle plan, there are certain key factors to consider.

Some colosseums require more points to capture. It can be strategic for all clan members to attack the same place in order to secure a capture, particularly when the colosseum has a higher number of points generated whilst captured.

Make sure you keep an eye on the colosseum point scales as you need to ensure your colosseums remain captured, therefore protecting your pathways across the map.

The colosseums furthest away from your starting side of the arena generate the most points once captured, however they are are more challenging in combat and also require more points to capture. Reaching these and securing them could be the key to victory!

The centre colosseum is also a gold mine for capture, with only one access point, making it more challenging for the enemy to threaten once captured by you.

This colosseum provides some of the highest numbers of points across the arena, and is less challenging to reach due to its central position.

Capturing the access point and the centre colosseum would generate a large amount of points over time, increasing your chances at victory.

The gateway to success

There are also 4 main gateway colosseums in the arena: two on each side, and two on each end of the map.

These provide a single access point on each side of the arena to the other end of the map which means capturing these colosseums provide protection to your end of the map (which would be the most valuable colosseums for your enemy) as they cannot pass a colosseum territorialized by your clan.

The same goes for the opposite side of the map. If you capture both sides of these gateway colosseums, you have access to the enemy’s most valuable colosseums that generate the most points, and also close off the rest of the map for the opposition.
