~ ๐Ÿ˜˜ Hi Hi My Splinterlands family around the world ๐Ÿ˜˜ ~

Welcome back to my post, @queen-silvia. In this article, I am going to share my experience as well as lesson learned ๐Ÿ“ I got from from LLAC Tournament where I got 11812.5 DEC ๐Ÿ’Ž as reward. The tournament is hosted by LLAC (Live Like A Cat ๐Ÿฑ) and created by ss01. The Prize comes from the portion of sponsorship funds received from LLAC. Well, LLAC is a NFT project created by Umuko Nekomori who drawn approximately 22,222 cat NFT ๐Ÿฑ. There are 766 participants registered for the tournaments, I think this is the tournament with most participants ever ๐Ÿ“ˆ. The last tournament which is also conducted by Schnapoon is also enrolled by hundreds of participants (around 500), so I think this LLAC tournament is still the biggest ๐Ÿ”ฅ so far. Alright guys so here are some topics that we are going to discuss in this article :
  1. The Tournament Challenge โš”๏ธ (which makes it quite different than other tourneys)
  2. Lesson Learned ๐Ÿ“ (all of my lose battles)
  3. Final Result of my accounts and tournament in general ๐Ÿ†
  4. The Announcement of Giveaway #89 ๐ŸŽŠ
  5. Giveaway #91 (Gold Foil Cruel Sethropod) ๐ŸŽ

Let's go with the first topic :

Copy of team line-up (25).png

There are two big challenge in LLAC Tournament, first is the league cap : Novice ๐Ÿ› and second is the time โฐ given for arranging the team. let's discuss one by one in detail :

1. League Cap : Novice

Well, as it's stated in the tournament details that the cards which players can use is limited to novice league only, that means all cards ๐Ÿ’ณ (regardless their rarity : common, rare, epic and legendary) should be used in level 1 only. I think most of players (who played manually) were found difficulties playing ๐ŸŽฎ in this format because I do believe they played in higher league, like Silver, Gold, Diamond, or even Champion. Playing in Novice league means that the cards that they used are losing stats and abilities โœจ. Here is an example for those who played at gold league.
StatisticStatistic
Ranged attack : 3Ranged attack : 4
Speed : 3Speed : 4
Health : 8Health : 8
Abilities : SnipeAbilities : Snipe, Piercing, and Protect
At Gold league, the highest level of rare card that we can play is level 6 so I tried to compare level 1 and level 6 of Silvershield Sheriff ๐Ÿค  and above table is the result. We can see the difference of ranged attack ๐ŸŽฏ and speed โšก๏ธ. The abilities are also different, only snipe is available at level 1 while there are 3 abilities at level 6 (Snipe, Piercing, and Protect). So the point is we have to maximize the card's ability which is available at level 1 to win the match at Novice league ๐Ÿ›.

2. Time given to arrange the team

The time โฐ given to choose cards and select the team is very short, 1 minute and 20 second :

time.png

The detail of the tournament said that this time is the shortest time between the time option so I think tournament organizer is intentionally makes the "team select time" โฐ in the tournament super fast โšก๏ธ. This will give the participants more challenge. In my opinion, we have to do at least two things in time select team :
  1. What kind of strategy ๐Ÿ“ˆ we have to use in the specific mana and ruleset.
  2. What kind of monsters ๐Ÿ‘น we are going to use according to the strategy.

Overall this super limited time makes the tournament more challenging โš”๏ธ and fun.

Copy of team line-up (26).png

Alright guys so I am playing with 3 accounts in this tournament, my main (queen-silvia) and 2 ex-scholar accounts (agentsilvia and silvia-plays). Both scholar accounts are given from my friends ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™‚, I don't play silvia-plays account anymore because it's impossible for me to play 3 accounts. Well, Currently, I only play ๐ŸŽฎ queen-silvia and agentsilvia for brawl ๐Ÿ‘Š and tournament ๐Ÿ† which has the same time as brawl only to maximize the usage of my rental cards. That's it.

Alright here are 5 lesson learned that we took as lesson learned from LLAC Tournament :

- USE STRONG MONSTERS (MAIN) IN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY RULESET -

RulesetManaElement
Stampede, Weak Magic, Equal Opportunity25Death, Dragon

3.png

BATTLE LINK

Lesson Learned :

In Equal Opportunity Ruleset, all monsters will attack the opponent monsters who have the lowest health points first, so basically all kind of monsters, no matter whether they are melee ๐Ÿ‘Š, ranged ๐ŸŽฏ or magic ๐Ÿ”ฎ monsters, they can attack from all positions. What we can learn from this battle is that we need to use main monsters which we hope they can kill many monsters and some monsters in low health point as sacrifice ๐Ÿ—ฟ. As we can see in my opponent line up, he used Djin Chwala and Harklaw as main monsters, and WIlly Coyotian, Cursed Slimeball, Carrion SHade and Kra'ar Xoc as the tribute monsters. the outcome of the match is exactly as his planned ๐Ÿ“. Djinn Chwala and Harklaw can survive all of my attack as they have thorn ๐ŸŒต and shield ๐Ÿ›ก ability and they killed lots of my monsters as my monsters are just focus to kill tribute monsters.

- RESURRECT MARTYR MONSTER TO GIVE +2 STATS TO ADJACENT MONSTERS -

RulesetManaElement
Are you not entertained, Fire and Regret, Equal Opportunity30Fire, Death

4.png

BATTLE LINK

Lesson Learned :

This is another great strategy to be used if you guys have summoner or monsters who have resurrect โœ๏ธ ability. The formula is to put monster with martyr ability in the second position and make sure that our monster in the first and third position are very strong ๐Ÿ’ช as we would like to count on them to kill lots of opponent monsters ๐Ÿ‘น. We also have to make sure that monster with martyr ability has the lowest health points in the team so that our opponent will kill โš”๏ธ martyr monster first. With the resurrect ability, martyr can give additional +2 all stats to the adjacent monsters. This kind of strategy ๐Ÿ“ works very well in target practice as well.

d.gif

- USE MARTYR MONSTER IN TARGET PRACTICE RULESET -

RulesetManaElement
Silenced Summoner, Target Practice, Melee Mayhem39Earth, Life, Death, Dragon

5.png

BATTLE LINK

Lesson Learned :

Martyr ability is also very effective to be used in the target practice ruleset as all of the magic ๐Ÿ”ฎ and ranged attack ๐ŸŽฏ monsters attack will go to either non attack, magic or ranged monsters who are at the closest position to the first monster. in that case, putting martyr monsters as a tribute to increase the main monsters will be great strategy ๐Ÿ“. The example can be seen in the above battle. My opponent put 2 martyr monsters to increase all stats of Void Dragon ๐Ÿ‰, Grund ๐Ÿธ and Carnage Titan. Carnage Titan will never be the target of ranged and magic monsters since he is a melee ๐Ÿ‘Š monster. It make sense to put Grund in the backline as melee mayhem will help him to attack from any position.

d.gif

- USE BLOODLUST IN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY RULESET -

RulesetManaElement
Silenced Summoner, Equal Opportunity, Are You Not Entertained15Life, Death, Dragon

6.png

BATTLE LINK

Lesson Learned :

In small mana battle when Bloodlust ๐Ÿ is available, we can use a monster with bloodlust like Jared Scar ๐Ÿ— because he can activate his bloodlust and make himself stronger ๐Ÿ’ช whenever he killed his target. I forget to use this strategy, since the ruleset was allowing players to use 1 gladius card, I was thinking to use 1 gladius and make a strong defense with it but I am failed. Bloodlust ๐Ÿ in small mana and equal opportunity ruleset is still way stronger. As we can see in the battle above, there are lots of "Food" that Jared Scar can "eat" to activate his Bloodlust ๐Ÿ and make him much more stronger ๐Ÿ’ช at the end of battle.

d.gif

- USE SCATTERSHOT IN EXPLOSIVE WEAPONRY RULESET -

RulesetManaElement
Fog of War, Explosive Weaponry, Weak Magic56Fire, Water, Life, Dragon

7.png

BATTLE LINK

Lesson Learned :

Honestly, I am really amazed with the line-up that my opponent set in the battlefield. Both of us has anticipated Explosive weaponry ๐Ÿ”ฅ ruleset by utilizing monster with taunt ability and reflection shield ๐Ÿ›ก monster. This way we can attract all of the opponent monsters in one monster and prevent the blast ๐Ÿ”ฅ effect spread using reflection monster. Unfortunately, my opponent was using Chaos Dragon ๐Ÿ‰ who can ignore taunt ability and scatter his magic ๐Ÿ”ฎ damage. That's really destroy my defense. What makes it worse is that the Chaos Dragon has 4 magic attack. It devastate my monsters in the backline very fast โšก๏ธ.

Alright, here is the final result of my 3 accounts in the tournament :

10.png

11.png

12.png

Well, I have 1 "flee" match at Agentsilvia account since my modem was suddenly out of battery โšก๏ธ. Too bad ha ha, I am pretty sure I could win ๐Ÿฅ‡ the match if my team was successfully went through. Some lose are due to bad RNG, some crucial attack โš”๏ธ were missed but anyway, I am still not at my best performance in this tourney, there are some mistakes which I have to make it better in the next tournament ๐Ÿ›. I am not really satisfied with the result but I got some lessons ๐Ÿ“ which I hope can make me or us doing better in the next opportunity. Yeah, hopefully.

And here is the top 5 players in the tournament in general :

Congratulations for the top 5 especially my ex guildmate, Star-Shroud ๐ŸŒ  who has been being the Champion for the LLAC Tournament. Proud of you, man. Keep up the good work!. See you in the next tournaments or Brawl guys :).

The SCATTERSHOT ability isn't really a favorite of many, but in its example, I can come to see its utility.

I will have to get a couple of monsters with this ability, I have always avoided SCATTERSHOT.

Congrats @blitzzzz!

Shew, I don't think I could ever select a team in that short of a time. Maybe for a really simple standard battle, but start adding rulesets in and I have too much thinking to do to make my selections that fast. Your 16/2 and 15/3 results are amazing!
