It’s been a while since this has been talked about. With all the new cards, now is as good as any. I run Gloomleaf, Gorgotha, Jarl, and stone giant, as my main team. My time to kill in pvp is around 4 minutes. What teams are you running that get less than that on average? Or what team has the fastest TTK that you know of?
I haven’t really measured…
About 3 and a half minutes for Maw teams, Knight and Goblins. Others like true damage ones die a bit quicker, 3 minutes. If RNG really likes me, I can do pretty much any team in just over 2 minutes.
Jarl Alchemist Moloch Moloch, fully traited, +2 red banner. If there are a few red gems on the board however, things can really stretch out. And if Jarl misses with his spell, well
Yeah I bet maw can really cut times, if I could only get him on console. (have maw on pc)
1 min or less (2rds) on knight and skeleton teams. 2-3 min on mab/mercy. 3-5 on maw/mercy. I loves my bats, but use astral on maw.
Gogotha, Crimson Bat, Soothsayer, Spirit Fox all fully traited. Handles almost anything, Maws excepted.
I have the Maw. And Bone dragon. And Mercy. Not using any of them. Played 5 matches with that setup and was bored to tears. Cast Mercy, devour, fill Bone dragon, cast his spell, gg. I loves me some excitement. Maw teams are mostly for over achievers and those that want this game to become something like “click anywhere to win”.
Yeah, I lost 6 out of my 146 matches this week, so what?
I bet @RiverSong has the full Team Maw, just as many others do. However, they play the game in order to enjoy it, 3 minutes or 4 or 6 means little to me if I managed to lay the smackdown on a lvl 1000 Team Maw by just spamming Jarl/Alchemist.
P.S. 8 out of 10 times, I manage to do it.
I get bored to tears using the same team over and over to win. In PvP, I tend to get streaky, using one team until I hit a counter defense, then swapping to another team until I get countered, etc. It’s nice to win, but I love having options over a click-to-win setup.
Sometimes I’ll elect to use a team that is specifically countered by the opposition, just to see if I can still win. I am not that concerned with a 100% win rate, and the thrill of seeing if I can pull it off adds some much-needed spice to the game.
Oh I agree with everything being said. I didn’t create this thread for the “perfect” team or op team. I have found myself doing more and more pvp these days, so I just wanted to see if I was on par with others. Also wanted to see if I could perfect my team to cut time a little more. I only have so many hours in the day to play. Also if you see the team i’m using, it’s far from perfect or op.
Yes, I have a Maw team. Maw, Valkryie, Mab, Mercy. I only used it against other Maw teams, that is until Impervious came along. Now I use Carnex, Manticore, Behemoth, Manticore, but only as an invasion team against Maws. A little slow, but effective.
As far as the fastest to-kill teams go, the fastest I’ve got is (an admittedly quite popular):
If lucky, Mercy can quickly fill Maw, and Maw can devour the most dangerous enemy troop (usually another Maw). Maw’s Sandstorm yellows help fill IK, and browns help fill Sheggra; IK’s spell creates skulls and reds, which help Maw proc Hunger and fill Sheggra, and Sheggra converts reds into yet more skulls to proc more Hungers and exploit an already-inflated Maw’s physical damage in the absence of Hunger. It’s a very strong team that is only mitigated by a full-Impervious (or Impervious/Stealthy) team.
It routinely kills in under 2 minutes, and can do under 1-minute kills depending on your luck.
The team I want, and don’t have yet is Hero, gorgotha, crimson bat, and not sure on the 4th. Any ideas?
Hero with what weapon?
right now i’m using sylvasi’s blades
I’m curious: what’s your knight / skeleton lineup?
I still feel like Maw teams are the fastest, assuming a decent starting board (2-3 minutes most matches). I did have a pretty fast team with Orion in the front for a while too, but I can’t recall the exact lineup at the moment.
Herd bat mari sooth
Herd, mari, and sooth all power bat. As a bonus, herd cleanses, sooth is empowered, and mari does true dmg to complement bat.
Now you has my secret :-/
I use this team to farm and sometimes in pvp too.
Not so fast as Maw or Mab team, but is fun.
