I just reached level SS. My first matchup is against DDE, Icarus, Daedelus, and Osiris. How did everyone get through that fight without consuming all great allies. Any suggestion, it doesn't appear I will get to far in level SS if this is how the matches go. Especially since you cant reuse toons next level either.

I haven't pulled. DDE, Crusader, Breeg, Beast or bought Alex yet.

My first SS was different-DDE, Prisoner with Primordials, Osiris and Horus with Eternal. This gets tough to go in with just enough power to beat the opponents and not wasting what you are gonna need to get through the grade. I got into SS and am waiting until the final day before reset to beef up what characters I have left to the getting to SSS. The 15 players who got to SSS must have rosters and luck far greater than mine. This is fun because it is challenging. I really enjoy using all the random characters that are otherwise collecting dust.

I assumed we were all facing the same teams, but I didn't face that combination until the 8th match of level SS. By that time I had already used most of the best characters, including the yellow lilith, which would certainly have come in handy against the golden buffs. I've failed 4 times now, and I'm not sure I can muster a decent enough team to bother trying a 5th.

Due to the fact there are no restrictions on what talismans the enemy can use, it is not always possible to judge what characters you will need to defeat them, so you just end up hitting a brick wall at a certain point. The difficulty level is probably about right though overall. You probably need a near full roster and at least half of all relics to make it to SSS.

Thanks guys, my first match is going to be tough using my yellow lilith out of the gate, also need immunity, cleanser team. The gauntlet is fun and becomes very challenging to determine a strategy. Any ideas on who to choose to conserve my better allies.

I would recommend to bring ragna warrior valk with you as her immunity protect against burns. Then a allies who can wear primordial such as gunner golem and ofc an healer. However you need a beater too so I d say pom at least. Cheers

I have to say I'm disappointed to find out that the battles are not the same. With character selection being so critical it seems like the battles should be in the same order for everyone if we are being compared on our progress to determine final position. Maybe if my mission 6 had been first I would have completed it the first pass because I had stronger characters available.

I am completely stuck on the 6th mission in SS and I can confirm that my battles are different than the ones posted by edsel. I have lost the coin toss on mission 6 5 times now and been destroyed every time before I even get a turn. I got a second turn once I was able to go first but only had 1 character left who promptly died after he spit blood on the ground at the AI's feet. I'm done with Gauntlet for this week. I still have strong characters left, but nothing that would make sense for this specific opponent team.

I may guess that the order or even opponents teams are not the same is so after someone goes first they cant tell everyone what to expect. They may be using a so called RNG to generate the opponents.

I would like to know what are the teams like in SSS..j congratulate anyone who makes it through SS with teams still able to compete.

Thanks Shaolin, I wouldn't have thought of Ragna since I haven't sharded her.. I used PoM, Ragna, sentinal NBoL and gunner rockets. POM destroyed them with critical strike and fury. NBoL kept them alive with heal shield.

Daedalus had echo and had 3 turns both times, he would have killed me without Ragnas passive

Just fought my first SS match. Set up my team to match my opponent but not talis. Hallowed Edd, Clair, Mag Lilly and Gunner CotD. Eventually lost but mostly due to the number of extra turns. Opponents got far more extra turns than I did. Plus the sword flip! I know it's not supposed to be easy, but cards are clearly stacked against the player.

I don't consider myself an expert on SSS by any stretch of my imagination, but the only way I cleared all 10 battles the first time round was before every battle I swapped talisman on my toons.

I hate doing that because I spent a fair bit of time getting the talisman balance right across all my fully sharded characters, but there comes a point when you will certainly run out of sharded ally's if not sharded eddys....

I probably spent an average of 10 minutes to half an hour preparing for one battle, the second time round I'm not doing so well I have already failed twice on the first battle. DDE, M Lillith with Destiny, Sekhmet with Echo, Gtotd with Primordials...
My only sharded Eddy's left are Carriage Rider, Soldier, Eternity, Mystic, Storm I have unsharded DDE, Rainmaker, SOL and Wickerman.... ally's left no lilliths, no gods, no blockers, Ihave nearly as many Eddies left as ally's...
Would love to better my position but oh well....

I am asking for a few suggestions to defeat a gauntlet team.

The team is Benji Eddie, Daedalus, Osiris, and the alchemist.

I am trying to defeat with original 3* toons. If needed I will use 4* toons. Can anyone help on this battle.

Do any of the original 3* toons inflict Permadeath? Thorn talismans are very likely useful here, too.

I have a conundrum, I have undead allied soldier left but he has been left by his Eddie master with shroud.
Now I have all 4 x ally's alive, Cyborg (primordials) Allied bomber boy Sentinel, Astra, Newborn of Light Sentinel
I have no problems keeping my team full of health, but none of my attacks have any effect, stupid UAS just gets frozen, slept, blinded etc but no damage, it's all blocked, even Cyborgs fury is blocked... any body got an idea?

I've been using it on auto for the past 1/2 hour but no change.. I don't want to give it up as it will effect my position etc...

natasar
11-29-2018, 07:53 AM
Had the same happening a couple weeks ago. I do not remember the opposing character, but I think it had shroud up as well. I did give up after 10 mins or so.

There was another thread on this, I can't locate it right now.

I remember the work around when you hit this bug is you need the "passive" type damage. Damage that comes from burns, marks etc.. your normal attacks aren't going to break through.

Good luck man, I lost a AAA, no duplicates battle, last fortnight due to a "connection with sever error." Almost tossed my phone though the window.

rags-6094
11-29-2018, 09:00 AM
I let it go on auto for an additional 5 or 10 minutes which achieved bupkis, I'm sure UAS was being hit by one of them with the occasional magic burn, but alas I threw in the towel,this one support can sort out...
I sent a request through, we'll see what comes of it watch this space"...........

First 2 SS battles, same for me too. A little balance here would be nice. :rolleyes:

And, now 3 in a row. Why can’t every battle consist of HE, Alc, and M Lilith just like the Arena. Yeah what fun! :confused:

Serious question, are these teams in Gauntlet based on what’s popular in the Arena?

i find it ironic that the devs feel the need to nerf these characters but also decide to spam the gauntlet with them.
They expect us to run unique and creative teams but they lack the ability to do the same.
Is the point here that there really are only a few characters and combinations that are challenging so even the devs can’t come up with anything different?

Also the teams I got were similar but not the same this week. Are we not battling the same teams through the gauntlet? I did not see Ra in any of my SS battles or GCotD.

Find another unbeatable team today. Not only all very powerful chars, but combination with most powerful and hard to obtain talismans.
DDE has sustaining and warlord, Killer Prime has immunity, warlord and sustaining, Madame has oracle and Charlotte has redemption and guard. 2 warlord and sustaining combo is tough.

Has anyone gotten to SS yet? The first team is unbeatable by me so far. It consists of Horus, POM, assassin Hellraiser and Icarus. Hellraiser is set to go second and Horus is last. The system gives itself first turn and just decimates my team due to the endless stunning. Ideas???

I got through S by the skin of my teeth. No dupes and only 5 Eddie's to use. I think I find a team impervious to stun, but I need to evolve one plaster to 100 before I try. It consists of Emporor samurai Eddie, Queens guard, Ichiyou and Reaper.

First team was RttH with echo/boost (all maxed), Assassin Krampus with quake/strength (all maxed), Koku with steel/stone and Prisoner with invisibility/thief. The last 2 are sharded, but not maxed in talismans. Serving was HE with echo/boost maxed, Lady Azov with death and paralysis maxed, Charlotte with dominance/ energy and GCotD with flash/void. The last 2 are not maxed.

SS is easy compared to SSS : the first opponent are POM - Musashi - Prime Killer - Charlotte ... I lose valuable characters & I think I'm done at this level (anyway I will have enough for FFE and a complete Valor set)

Has anybody had a crack at SS this week?
I faced FFE, Alchemist, A Banshee, M Lillith for the first fight, I tried to spare my best troops for SSS... so first fight I lost...
I decided if I waste anymore there'll be no more fights anyway so bought out one of my better teams, of course this had a blocker and A Banshee in the team, I won whoopee!
Next fight walk in the park, then the next three fights two had A Banshee, two had FFE 3 had Prisoner and at least 2 had KP

This latest one has Prisoner, Trooper Ed with what talisman I don't know but absolutely buried me 4 x... Horus and KP.
To the Developers if you are going to create a fair contest in Gauntlet when we are all only allowed to use our characters once, why do you think it is fair to repeat and triplicate the same characters that none of us can possibly compete with..?

I have blown a massive stash of Sow trying, so how about some answers Devs explain how this is fair please? Or is this a second nail in your coffin in one week?

I usually cruise through SS and SSS maybe twice, but this latest level you have stooped to takes the cake, are you trying to turn away your best customers? How about some answers please?

Yup
02-06-2019, 07:45 AM
My Gauntlet theory..... Fight to the rewards you can live with, then STOP for heaven's sake :) That is unless you get locked out earlier.

Two weeks ago I was through 3 or 4 rounds of SSS.

Last round I got burned at that last battle o n AAA with DD, Banshee, Prisoner.. I mean.. it's ridiculous to ask people to compete with those characters wearing impossible talisman combinations... all with ONLY Magus characters and no duplicates. It's a near impossibility, in not actual impossibility, for most. I mean 6 battles 4 character each = 24 characters, but there's only ~16 decent Magus characters.... they KNOW they are creating impossibilities. Sure hopefully you can win 1 or two with only an Eddie or an Eddie and 1 supporting character, but still.

I think they forget the whole "game" aspect at times and just want to fuck with users because they can.

I'm currently sitting 2 fights into SS, Rags. Spending most of my SOW elsewhere ,, heh. I'm not stuck, just haven't bothered to try more yet. But it doesn't surprise me if you hit a battle that simply is unwindable. I have at times and sometimes VERY early on.

An then.. there's that AI boost.. but.. thanks to my unrelenting area fighting the past few days, I think I have figured something critical out about that.. he, he ,he,,,,,,,

02-06-2019, 10:02 AM
AAA was hard this week for sure. Rags, tough break for you this run, SS is forcing me to burn valuable players to pass. Hard to guage saving good players for future battles and risking loss or blasting through with OP teams to get as hi rank with 0 loss. Top 10 requires passing into the 3rd SSS stage, by then you surely have used most good characters. Conquering the first fight on each SSS is always the hard one, but saving teams for this risks losses along the way. I agree with Yup to get a level that yields acceptable rewards and stop. To get into 80+ wins is expensive and requires a great deal of luck with the coin toss and AI behavior. 5246

I just tried 1 AAA fight.
Iron Eddie ( guard immortality), Sekmeth(Thief, Strike), Icarus ( destiny shell), Assassin Hellriser(eternal)
I tried with 4 fully sharded and fully equipped characters including Ancient Mariner and Magus Lilith and lost. 2 Destiny sets didn't get a single Invincibilty for me and gave it to Icarus immediately. So it seems for computer it is not broken.

I hate to say I've lost a lot of the motivation for Gauntlet this time. It's disappointing because I came in with a ton of SoW stored. After the bug fails in the last gauntlet which pushed me down several spots in the final result and the repetition of AI teams it is losing its shine. I'm still playing it, but its more out of habit this time than a burning desire to blast through and try to get to the top.

I do not envy the devs setting this up. If it is too easy everyone gets to the top. If it is too hard only a few people get there and many complain. If it is just right then... wait... is that even possible? I do wish for more variety regardless of the difficulty level.

Iím all out of passive disablers and cleansers at this point so the next Horus/KP/Ferryman/A.Banshee will almost be gurenteed to stop my progress

But man, this time around the gauntlet was a good challenge. Iím prob not gonna make top50 this time around but I gotten what I needed and enjoying the painful climb.

AAA is brutal for me lately. This time most of the teams are full of maxed out liliths who do tons of damage. I have a pretty deep bench of magus characters but I use most of the viable ones pretty quickly. I'm still on track to get the Ancient Mariner by the end of the season I hope (and hopefully the devs fix that weird bug that gives the wrong gauntlet rewards).

Yeah, I think AAA is also because is magus. There are some top notch magus chars, but not heaps of depth perhaps?

Its funny, somewhere there is a post recently about how warriors are underpowered and to an extent they might have less top level options. But imo, there is a lot more depth there for options in Gauntlet at least...
