Strangest? I see a lot of stranger teams on my lower level account. A lot of them just look like they mashed together whatever the highest rarity troops they happened to have at the time and hope for the best.
In high level PvP, a lot of people have their low score or throw the match teams set, which accounts for most of the “strangeness” - single shrooms, villagers, bombots, etc, some of which might even have a chance of winning 1v4 against lower level opponents due to matchmaking. I’ve also seen some creative teams that can occasionally be nasty if you underestimate them, too, but I think it would ruin the novelty of facing them if I shared them here.
However, sometimes, it just looks like they are trying to have a strong defense, but just don’t quite have all the pieces for the “meta” team and decide to make a little substitution. One that gave me a chuckle was Manticore, Manticore, Deep Borer… Keeper of Souls. So close, and yet so very far.
I see this quite a lot too, even from high level players. Bombot teams without third mechanist trait. Justice teams without third mab trait. Maw/IK/mercy/sheggra teams without an empowered mercy. It’s usually some form of tacet team with a crucial link missing!
And there’s always the classic ‘the game has accidentally switched my actual defence team with my farm team’ which is the explanation for most uses of KoS and ALL uses of Aziris!
Fourgotha and Mantifour, now those are funny! =) I’ve seen lots of posts about how some people make defense teams just to slow and and annoy the crap out of the attacker. I can sure see evidence of that here!
I came across a solitary spider knight, ultra rare, no traits can’t remember the level. I had a Bunni in top slot with 5 x skull damage and the game started with skulls kindly lined up for me to match. One turn, game won!
