***Ends Sunday 2:30 AM EST*** ***12 Rounds*** Prize is the YULE MOOSE(Mule)


Short but sweet general guide to battles:
The more rare your animal, the higher the level, and the stronger elementally your animal is vs. your opponent, the better your odds of getting a critical hit.
You can only win by getting at least one critical hit on your opponent.


Choose your most rare and/or highest level according to the recommend elements in this table:

6 Spruce Moose (dark-nature)Fire x2 Dark-Fire, Electric-Fire, Nature-Fire (Fire without Earth)
Gem-Fire or Gem ok
7 Terrorier (dark-fire) Fire, WaterSteamtrunk if you have it

8 Steamtrunk (fire-water)Electric, WaterElectric-Water is ideal
Then Water-Earth, Electric-Earth
9 Toucan (special)Nature Your strongest Nature without Dark or Gem
Vinotaur or Ocean Owl have worked for some
10 Treebra (earth-nature)Gem, Nature, Fire Gem, Gem-Nature, Gem-Fire ideal

The New & Improved Elements Graphic (with the toucan added)
If your element is above your opponent's, it is strong to it. Conversely, below = weak.
(If your element is strong vs. one and weak vs. the other, or if it is not directly above or below the other, it is neutral. For example, electric is strong to water (it's above water) but weak to earth (below it) and neutral to everything else.

I saw the tournament and made my first attack so quickly I did not even notice - what is the prize animal?

And there is another package deal up - for yet another animal that I already have. There has NEVER been a package deal with any of the 2 ultra rare and 7 super rare animals I don't have. I still REALLY want another chance at the Scare Crow. With realm runes. For $10.

Then type , paste the link, then (no spaces). You can post images of any size that way, and any number of images in the same post. Hope that helps!

It may sound easier to finish a short tournament but it is not. It is less forgiving. Getting hung up on one animal can kill your chances much more easily than it can in a regular tournament.

GOOD LUCK, everyone! :)

Hey guys, everytime we have a tournament I think we shouldn't write to its thread until Zenobia and A2tude start the process. The only reason that I'm saying this is that we're always referring to the tournament thread and their notes in the 1st page makes it easier for us all.

Wow another "fantastic" 36-hr-tourney, so that people in Europe are kind of screwed from the start -_-
Plus pre-xmas stuff obviously going on on Saturday and plus the fact that I lost vs the koala :D

The only good thing? I really don't like the animal, yet another deer, so no problem letting it go.

But the main point remains: when are there going to be 48hr-tournaments so that the playing field is finally level all around the world? :-/

I gotta say, I had really hoped after the plethora of complaints about the timing of the Steam Trunk short tournament, that they would have made this type of tournament fair to European players. At 36 hours, during which Europeans and eastern Asians need to sleep 2 nights and those in the Americas between 1 night and 1.3 nights, it is completely unfair to them. Assuming a player sleeps something like from 11:30pm - 7:30am, and fights nearly every single hour possible by setting alarms, that means West Coast American players get 28 free battles, East Coast Americans 25, and Europeans only 22. Why should they have to set alarms every hour for one of the 2 nights of the tournament just to be able to get the same number of battles Americans do? West Coasters have a 6-battle advantage over Europeans, which amounts to a 40% advantage. It's just not fair, especially when the number of free battle we get is so low.

TL, PLEASE consider changing all battles and events timing to be multiples of 24 hours. If you do that, then no matter where someone lives in the world, they will not be penalized for living there. A 48-hour (14-15 animal) tournament is infinitely more fair than a 36-hour tournament. I do not understand why you giving a huge handicap to a good portion of your players.

Every single plea I've made before to TL to treat all players equally has fallen on deaf ears. But I won't stop trying, as long as I am still playing.

^^^. Very well put, zenobia! Also won't put shift workers at a disadvantage. In addition to having the tournaments last a multiple of 24 hours, it would also be nice to have a heads-up for a few days in advance. "Check back on Friday for a new tournament!" type message.

In total agreement. So unfair :(

36 hours is a ridiculously short time anyway.

I had figured that to win the regular tournaments, you need about 10 tries per day. Pretty high, but this one needs practically every hour you have available minus sleep (assuming that it works the way the regular tournaments do where people ended up with about an even number of wins and losses).

In other news, I've lost 2 times in the first 4 rounds. Ugh.... good thing this is a lazy Reindeer clone animal anyway.

12-12-14, 06:51 PM
Has anyone tried using a Christmas animal in the tournament? I am not suggesting anyone do so, because a tournament of so little time is not the place to experiment needlessly unless you don't mind spending a lot of gems. But it would be nice to add that element to my graphic and recommended fighters if someone feels like playing around. If not this tournament, there is always the next, or even better, more battlegrounds because it doen't matter how many times you lose there.

Level 11 citrine won with nightmare dark attack

Both critical hits.

So round 11 is a Citrine, and of course the last one is the Yule Mule? Do you know what 9 and 10 were? Just wanted to check!

A quick note on the way TeamLava shows countdowns in the home screen: it rounds up. So if there is 1 day and 1 second left in a tournament or event, it calls that 2 days. This is a 36-hour tournament tht started 7.5 hours ago. You can chck the actual time when you are in the arena. On your home screen, it will say "2 days" until it is 1 day, 0 hours, 0 minutes, 0 seconds.

Yet another ridiculously frustrating thing that they do. Am I correct in saying that it ends at 2:30am EST Sunday morning? If so, I'll put that on the first page.

Yes. :(

Looks like it. Try restarting your device. If it still shows please let me know.

I did try to restarted it, but it still like that. When I try to click on it, the evolution finish without cost any gem!

I sure wish I had that glitch! I REALLY did not expect a flash tournament today and so I put my toucan in the flower this morning. I leveled it to 15 specifically for tournaments. So it is out of commission... for pretty much the entire tournament unless I pay gems. :(

The irony of it is killing me!

It doesn't look like it will be needed at least! I'm waiting for confirmation on what round 11 is, but at least I believe there's no Unicorn this tournament! And no Emerald. Quite pleased by this, hopefully no one will get stuck forever on one round. Although if 11 is the Citrine, that could be the one that gets people. I'm not sure what to recommend for Citrine... Dark-Fire or Dark-Earth I guess, and Toucan.

Again a big thanks to forestwald for sharing who the opponents are!

Seems like there are a lot less players for this one than usual. I hope that too many people aren't very late finding out about the tournament and only start tomorrow. I'm guessing that may be the case since it was released on a Friday with absolutely no warning.

Like seriously would it have killed TL to give us some advance warning? To, like, be FAIR?

***Ends Sunday 2:30 AM EST*** ***12 Rounds*** Prize is the YULE MOOSE(Mule)

*Any speeders please record the opponents! Doesn't matter what you used! Just the opponents and I can finish the best fighter table.*

Short but sweet general guide to battles:
The more rare your animal, the higher the level, and the stronger elementally your animal is vs. your opponent, the better your odds of getting a critical hit.
You can only win by getting at least one critical hit on your opponent.


Choose your most rare and/or highest level according to the recommend elements in this table:

#OpponentStrong Element(s)Best Bets to Beat the Beast
1 Koala Cadabra (electric-dark) Earth, Fire Use Earth-Fire animal
2 Pyro Pony (fire)Water Use Water animal without Nature or Dark
(Earth-Water, Electric-Water, Fire-Water)
3 Arboar (water-nature)Electric, GemUse Gem or any Electric animal without Earth
4 Porkupine (electric-nature)Gem, FireGem, Gem-Fire, Fire without Water
5 Iciclaw (water-earth)Gem, Nature Gem, Gem-Nature, Nature without Fire
6 Spruce Moose (dark-nature)Fire x2 Dark-Fire, Electric-Fire, Nature-Fire (Fire without Earth)
Gem-Fire or Gem ok
7 Terrorier (dark-fire) Fire, WaterSteamtrunk if you have it
Fire without Nature, Water without Nature
8 Steamtrunk (fire-water)Electric, WaterElectric-Water is ideal
Then Water-Earth, Electric-Earth
9 Toucan (special)Nature Your strongest Nature without Dark or Gem
Vinotaur or Ocean Owl have worked for some
10 Treebra (earth-nature)Gem, Nature, Fire Gem, Gem-Nature, Gem-Fire ideal
Otherwise use Nature-Fire
11 opp 11 stro el what to use
12 Yule Mule (nature-fire)Gem, Fire, WaterGem, Gem-Fire, Steamtrunk
or Electric-Fire, Electric-Water

http://i1307.photobucket.com/albums/s586/zenobia42/FFS/FFS_element_graphic_12-04-14_take2_zps3d4d4092.jpg
The New & Improved Elements Graphic (with the toucan added)
If your element is above your opponent's, it is strong to it. Conversely, below = weak.
(If your element is strong vs. one and weak vs. the other, or if it is not directly above or below the other, it is neutral. For example, electric is strong to water (it's above water) but weak to earth (below it) and neutral to everything else.

Thanks to everyone who shared their tips on this tournament. I really valued this advice.

2) Pony < Frostfang Lv.12
3) Arboar < Magmacore Lv.10
4) Porkupine < Magmacore Lv.10 (took 3 attempts)
5) Iciclaw < Harvest Hedgehog Lv.10
6) Spruce Moose < Pyro Pony Lv.14 (took 2 attempts)

I have no gem creatures or electrics, so it's going to be a rough ride from here on now... :p

I gotta say, I had really hoped after the plethora of complaints about the timing of the Steam Trunk short tournament, that they would have made this type of tournament fair to European players. At 36 hours, during which Europeans and eastern Asians need to sleep 2 nights and those in the Americas between 1 night and 1.3 nights, it is completely unfair to them. Assuming a player sleeps something like from 11:30pm - 7:30am, and fights nearly every single hour possible by setting alarms, that means West Coast American players get 28 free battles, East Coast Americans 25, and Europeans only 22. Why should they have to set alarms every hour for one of the 2 nights of the tournament just to be able to get the same number of battles Americans do? West Coasters have a 6-battle advantage over Europeans, which amounts to a 40% advantage. It's just not fair, especially when the number of free battle we get is so low.

TL, PLEASE consider changing all battles and events timing to be multiples of 24 hours. If you do that, then no matter where someone lives in the world, they will not be penalized for living there. A 48-hour (14-15 animal) tournament is infinitely more fair than a 36-hour tournament. I do not understand why you giving a huge handicap to a good portion of your players.

Every single plea I've made before to TL to treat all players equally has fallen on deaf ears. But I won't stop trying, as long as I am still playing.


Zen, thnx for the support.
The TL people probably think the USA is the world and the other parts of our planet do not count :confused:

Zenobia, I've just managed to win against the Steam Trunk with my level 15 Ancient Sloth with one critical earth hit. Someone else had also won in that round with the Ancient Sloth. Best of luck! :)

Regarding the lack of time for the tournament for players in Europe and elsewhere, I view that as TL trying to pressure me as a European player into spending gems to speed up the tournament rounds. But that won't happen. I'm already angry, because I've lost another gem today by tapping into that annoying food gem trap that's built into the game. :mad: As for the "Yule Mule": In my view, this looks far more like a Christmas Reindeer than the so called Reindeer, that should be renamed into Yule Moose (those are no Reindeer antlers at all!) Though, I honestly don't really care anymore, if I win a tournament or not...

Here are my results so far (still battling without any gem creature or the Toucan):

Round 1 won w. lv 12 Magmacore (1 crit fire)
Round 2 lost twice against this randomly overpowered lv 1 Pyro Pony with my lv 12 Iciclaw and my lv 15 Frostfang (using earth and water attacks)
Round 2 won w. lv 15 Rock Rhino (1 crit & 2 strong earth of course!)
Round 3 lost w. lv 11 Lightning Leopard and lv 10 Thorilla (all electric attacks)
Round 3 won w. lv 11 Lightning Leopard (1 crit & 2 strong electric)
Round 4 won w. lv 15 Fairy Rat (officially known as Fairy Ferret) (2 strong & 1 crit fire)
Round 5 lost w. lv 15 Ancient Sloth (3 strong nature)
Round 5 won w. lv 13 Hydro Yak (1 crit nature)
Round 6 won w. lv 15 Fairy Rat (Ferret) (2 strong & 1 crit fire)
Round 7 lost w. lv 12 Magmacore (3 strong fire) and also with lv 13 Iciclaw (2 strong earth, 1 strong water)
Round 7 won w. lv 15 Armordillo (1 strong fire, 1 strong earth, 1 crit fire)
Round 8 won w. lv 15 Ancient Sloth (1 crit earth)
Round 9 lost w. lv 15 Ancient Sloth (3 strong nature) -> will try Hydro Yak next

I wish all of you best of luck! :)

I am seriously bummed. I play this game every single day but yesterday was my work christmas party and i was out until 11pm without my phone on. I got home at midnight and found this friggan tournament with barely more than a day to complete it. For heavens sake. :( It should not be so tight that if you begin it half a day late, you really have no chance at all. Plus this 36 window is totally unfair to so many players based on where they live or what their job hours are.

I have some gems saved from installing the fish game and running game that i can use, but I am not spending any $ on this one. We will try but if we miss it we miss it. The yule mule is fugly anyways.

Anyways - good luck everyone.

Iciclaw < L15 Ancient Sloth
Spruce Moose < L15 Vinotaur
Terrorier < L15 Skeletal Dragon
Steam Trunk < L15 crystal unicorn after my L15 terradactyl lost 5 times.
Treasure Toucan beat my sloth first try.

I went the first 7 rounds without a loss. Then my luck evened out by making me take 6 tries to get the Steam Trunk. Finally did and starting round 9 with another loss. I have a busy day, including some time in the subway meaning I will be unable to battle due to no internet, and so I estimate I have 7-8 free battles left in which I must win 4. Overall my win rate is at 61.5% so I have a chance. But unlike the last tournament (which was difficult early on then not as difficult as usual in the late stages), this is shaping up for me as being of the easy early / very difficult final third variety. And Me going 1-6 in the last 7 battles is NOT good.

I don't know yet if I will spend gems on this tournament. My philosophy on these is to I go as far as I can for free, setting alarms during the day to battle as close to every hour as possible. When time is almost up, if I am very close but haven't won, THEN I will spend some gems to skip the hour waits in hopes of finishing it out. But if I beat 0 or 1 more animal between now and then, I won't waste my gems. And IMO, the price for the ultimate hit is WAY too high. I won't spend that many gems on it. Actually, I guess if there were 2 minutes left and I were on the final animal and had 2 non-critical hits, then I *might* spend all those gems to finish it out. ... Though in this tournament that would require me to be fully cognizant at 2:28am and I'm too old for that lol!

My record is 8-7 right now. Exactly on pace with what it was in the last tournament, where I ended with an even number of wins and losses.

I'm starting to think this is just the way it goes... and it doesn't matter where those losses come. They don't even necessarily make sense. Some people lose a lot early on and then get luckier, some people win a lot and then start losing a lot, and some just have a couple losses every couple rounds the whole time. At least, for those that are consistently able to choose good fighters... and excepting those rounds that "glitch" where people get stuck with 20 losses.

We'll see. I won't be that upset if I don't win this tournament. I might use a couple gems if I'm only 1 or 2 rounds away from the end near bedtime, but I definitely won't be using ultimates. I did have to use an ultimate to win the Steamtrunk... totally worth it (by far the coolest tournament prize they've had), and that was only because I didn't have the right fighter to win a particular round. This tournament, I know I have all the right fighters, and I'm playing as much as I can without sacrificing sleep, so if I don't win, it wasn't winnable for me.

I think it will be a little ridiculous if those of us who started pretty much right away, play pretty much every hour, and have a good group of fighters can't make it through. Still a good amount of time left though... we'll see...

Did it register as strong, neutral or weak? Or was it a 1-hit kill so you don't know? Thanks.

If dinoman23 doesn't answer, I will try it out in a few hours. My first one of the pack is still scheduled for about 5 more hours in the evolution flower, but I guess, I will spend some gems to speed it up later. But right now I'm still busy growing the necessary food to then raise it at least to level 11. By the way, readysetgo888 noted in his battle table that Vinotaur and Ocean Owl have worked for someone. I've seen in your forest, that you have both at a higher level than mine are. Maybe one of them will work for you.

As for the Toucan, I'm still stuck on that myself. Meanwhile I've failed 3 times with my lv 15 Ancient Sloth and once with the lv 13 Hydro Yak and the lv 15 Fairy (Fer)Rat. I will try my lv 11 Vinotaur next. Best of luck all for bringing down that Toucan!

Lost against Toucan 5 times in a row, dont want to speed up anymore. All my strong nature animals couldn't beat it.
Last Tournament I took it down with my Toucan first try. Toucan against Toucan so funny what?

After about 15 multiple attempts with assorted (N)critters --second attempt with vinotaur (14) took toucan down with 3rd N hit critical

Meeeeh my luck so far has not been the snazziest. More than likely I won't be able to finish without gems, especially if I keep getting caught up on random (not even that hard) opponents:

2. Glacier Griffin, lvl 11 (water-earth) against Pyro Pony -- loss
3. Glacier Griffin, lvl 11 (water-earth) against Pyro Pony -- loss

5. Crystal Unicorn, lvl 10 (gem) against Arboar -- win
6. Crystal Unicorn, lvl 10 (gem) against Porkupine -- loss
7. Crystal Unicorn, lvl 10 (gem) against Porkupine -- win
8. Crystal Unicorn, lvl 10 (gem) against Iciclaw -- loss
9. Crystal Unicorn, lvl 10 (gem) against Iciclaw -- win
10. Vinotaur, lvl 15 (nature-fire) against Spruce Moose -- win
11. Glacier Griffin, lvl 11 (water-earth) against Terrorier -- loss
12. Glacier Griffin, lvl 11 (water-earth) against Terrorier -- win

I used ancient sloth with earth attack, my sloth is level 15

Thanks for the responses, but the glacier griffin is my highest super rare that is most efficient against the streamtrunk and aside from making that choice, it's all luck. I'll just stick with it. (I've lost 5 times against the streamtrunk now. It's kind of worrying. Haven't even faced the toucan or peregrine yet...)

Managed to finish with a few hours to spare. The Citrine Peregrin caused me no end of trouble. I threw everything in my arsenal at it to no avail. Had to use an ultimate :-( Got the Yule Mule with my lv 14 Ancient Sloth. Used earth attack, got a critical on the first hit, two more hits finished it off. I think I got lucky. I'm relieved this one is over. Just like a mule, this tournament was stubborn! Good luck to all still trying.

I'm up to 5 losses to Toucan. Vinotaur, Ocean Owl, and Sloth.

Vodelle, I've found that losing a lot in one round usually means I'll win quickly in another round. Or the other way around. I beat the Steamtrunk on the first try and now I'm making up for it. So hopefully you'll have better luck later on... I hope I will too.

I wish that were true for me this time around - it usually is - just not when I can least afford it, the super-short tourney. I breezed through the early rounds and got stuck on the Steam Trunk. But now I am just as stuck on the next round. 3 losses and counting.


sloth (15) didn't work on the toucan. Lost three times. My level 13 Vinotaur also lost, twice. I leveled him up to a 14 and took out the toucan with a critical nature attack on the first hit.
I've lost twice with the Sloth and then once so far with Vinnie. Both level 15 before starting. Don't know what to try next. I don't have another level 15 super rare with nature.

Well said... I' m considering quitting this UNFAIR game.

I gotta say, I had really hoped after the plethora of complaints about the timing of the Steam Trunk short tournament, that they would have made this type of tournament fair to European players. At 36 hours, during which Europeans and eastern Asians need to sleep 2 nights and those in the Americas between 1 night and 1.3 nights, it is completely unfair to them. Assuming a player sleeps something like from 11:30pm - 7:30am, and fights nearly every single hour possible by setting alarms, that means West Coast American players get 28 free battles, East Coast Americans 25, and Europeans only 22. Why should they have to set alarms every hour for one of the 2 nights of the tournament just to be able to get the same number of battles Americans do? West Coasters have a 6-battle advantage over Europeans, which amounts to a 40% advantage. It's just not fair, especially when the number of free battle we get is so low.

TL, PLEASE consider changing all battles and events timing to be multiples of 24 hours. If you do that, then no matter where someone lives in the world, they will not be penalized for living there. A 48-hour (14-15 animal) tournament is infinitely more fair than a 36-hour tournament. I do not understand why you giving a huge handicap to a good portion of your players.

Every single plea I've made before to TL to treat all players equally has fallen on deaf ears. But I won't stop trying, as long as I am still playing.

zenobia42
12-13-14, 11:57 AM
readysetgo888, I was off by 1/2-hour. The tournament is 36:30 long. I guess that is so that it ends at midnight Pacific time, which is nice for everyone in that time zone - normal sleep hours mean they only miss 8 hours of battles total. Not as nice for any other time zone in the world, though. Again, I am sorry to all European players. It really stinks how they handicap you about 6 hours worth of battles compared to the time zone the devs happen to live in.

zenobia42
12-13-14, 12:04 PM
Yay - on my fourth try, my ancient sloth took down that pesky toucan. I went 7-0 in the early rounds, then 2-8. :/ Hopefully that double speed bump will be followed by open road again. :)

As I feared, the element TL is making it exceptionally difficult for a few unlucky souls to get even one of, is proving very useful so far. :(

Thanks for the info, though! Since you used it on a single-element opponent, we can say for sure that Xmas > toucan (I don't know WTH to call the toucan's element, since the white gem element we call gem, so we can't also call this one gem, and "purple gem" or "premium game currency gem" are too long lol... so I call the toucan's element... toucan. :p At least until there is another animal with that element, if there ever is.)

I have enough for 3 ultimately if I need to use them so I just have to beat this bloody Toucan.

Good luck on the Toucan and finishing the tournament! (and anyone else who is in a similar spot to me) I'm not even at the toucan, so this is just really disheartening.

I can see why people complain about FFS. So much of it is luck-based. I've been playing every waking hour, using the best animals I have, and still nada. And you're right, rewarding the game by feeding it gems because of bad luck is really dumb. I'm a completionist at heart though, and if I have to spent some gems to speed up some battles and get an extra animal, I'll probably do it. Shame.

Congrats on finally beating it! I'm at 9 losses now. I have like 8 animals that are all equally good against Toucan... but I think I may try to stick with Sloth, for the few battles I have left.

FTR, I would like the Yule Moose if I was judging it independently. I just can't get past the fact that it's such a lazy design. I mean it has antlers for crying out loud. When I first saw it I thought it was the Reindeer again. I already have the Reindeer. So I don't really care about getting its clone.

And I definitely do not care to reward TL with gems for 1) making a ridiculously short tournament 2) that is unfair to European players 3) with a prize animal that probably took them 5 minutes to create based on the Reindeer.

Oh and also... it doesn't even have a Christmas element. So not even an actual Christmas animal.

Just won against the Treebra in Round 10 on first attempt with my lv 15 Fairy Ferret (1 crit nature and 1 rather neutral or weak fire). In the last tournament I had also taken down the Treebra in one try with then 1 strong nature, 1 strong fire & 1 crit nature attack.

What works well on a Treebra im thinking of trying my LV11 Vinotaur its the only good nature i have.

I'm happy for you, but I really wonder if people realize that your individual luck doesn't carry over to other people? I've even tried the ancient sloth a couple of those 12 times (despite my other animal potentially being a better match) but that didn't get me anywhere.

Saying this in general... this is why I kind of shrug and feel a little bad when I see someone recommending to use an animal that's not really a great match even though it worked for them... ANY animal can win ANY battle, but the odds are better if you choose one with the best elements. Your chances are better if you stick to the recommended elements... unless your only option with the recommended elements is only a common or rare and/or a low level, then a super rare that is less of a good match, or a level 15 animal, might be better. But it never makes sense to switch to an animal that is worse overall just because it works for someone else.... just saying...

Although to be fair, I DO think this is WAY more about luck than it is about the animal you use, even if the odds do get better with a better animal. I also sincerely believe that the game is designed to "stick" players on certain levels just to see if they will give up and use an ultimate. There's no reason why you should be stuck 10+ times on the same level when using the correct animal, when every other round takes 1-3 times. If the odds aren't worse on that one round, then why does it happen like that?

An update:

7) Terrior < Frostfang Lv.13
8) Steam Trunk < Rockodile Lv.9
9) Toucan > Grassquatch Lv.10 and Panda Lv.13 (4 attempts so far).

:( I think my tournament might very well end at the Toucan.

TL would it be so difficult to actually notify us when a tournament is on. We get notifications about our habitats and when our farms are ready so why not a new tournament. This weekend has been a busy one and just been logging onto the game to collect from my habitats and farm (have given up trying to breed x-mas animals pumpkin panda and any animal not in my collection as I just keep breeding fails) and low and behold I see a tournament is on but now I have just 8hrs before it ends. And yes im probably to blame for not being vigilant but a notification that a tournament is on would be most helpful. Living in Australia im not sure if we get an advantage or disadvantage in the times difference. Not all players reside is the USA.

Why does the table says earth against citrine
It give a neutral attack only
I lost this round

Earth is strong to Electric, though weak to Gem. At worst it's neutral, and no better or worse than any other neutral element. Dark is the only element that is strong against Citrine.

Really, for Citrine, it should be your best Dark without Nature or Water. That's what I listed... except for the Toucan, of course. But many players don't have that.

I used a Level 15 Steamtrunk to defeat the Yule Mule and complete the tournament. Another egg for storage. Busy day and no time to post until now. The round 9 Toucan was the most difficult for me, lost 6 times with a Level 15 Pumpkin Panda. I ended up with 15 losses total for the tournament. Started off much worse than the Steamtrunk mini-tournament but finished so much better (19 of my 21 losses in that tournament were in the last 3 rounds).

I stick with the same creature for each round. Following is a list of the creatures and the number of losses in that round I used in the last few rounds in case it helps anyone:

Round 8 - Thorilla 15 (1 loss)
Round 9 - Pumpkin Panda 15 (6 losses)
Round 10 - Aurora Pegasus 15 (2 losses)
Round 11 - Cosmic Phoenix 15 (3 losses)
Round 12 - Steamtrunk 15 (0 losses).

Good luck to all those still battling.

Amareiha -- I just feel like those kinds of posts are helpful, if the person is using an incorrect animal (ie completely wrong elements or something similar). Even then, you never know what someone does or doesn't have in their arsenal. (Admittedly, in this case, most people have the battleground animals, so that doesn't really apply here.) I think readysetgo's post explains my mindset.

I've been using a glacier griffin. It's the highest (super rare) I have relevant to defeating the steamtrunk. Both its attacks are 'strong' against the steamtrunk (an in-game element signaling that I'm on the right track). An ancient sloth has earth, but its nature element would technically be weak to the steamtrunk's fire. I've tried it out, even. I honestly don't think my luck would be better with it. *shrug* Please don't take this post the wrong way -- I'm not trying to target you, or anything. I'm just SUPER PISSED at the game for having gone 12 losses against an animal I shouldn't have 12 losses against. Is my match super ideal? No, but it's the second best, and this is getting really dumb.

Thanx for clarifying

It would much better to mention that on the table
That dark is the strongest and earth could give neutral attack
As in the last few hours (it's 12:30 here in london )
I can't afford to lose
I would've chosen dark for sure

I beat the Steamtrunk on my first try with the Griffin. Many people have beat Toucan on the first try with one of the several animals I've tried multiple times. Makes. No. Sense.

Except of course unless the game wants to stick people on a certain round every tournament.... 10 losses is by far my worst. Prior to that, my worst was 8 tries to win.

No problem... although, the theory around here is that your chances are already set once you choose an animal, and that which of the "attack" buttons you use makes no difference to whether you get a Critical. That's Sand's theory... she's the one who originally came up with all this stuff after doing testing for a long time in the Battlegrounds. I just try to summarize it in the clearest way...

That being said, I always use the Strong element attack anyway, JIC. I will update the table to remove Earth. Actually, no one has played the Citrine as an opponent before this tournament, so I wasn't sure how Earth would do. Since you let me know, I'll take it off the table.

I have been playing every hour since the beginning with a break of approx. 7 hours for sleep. Work is in "babysit mode" so I have the time.

That said, I have only defeated 3 opponents. I am still stuck on round 4. I have super rare creatures of all the "best" types. All are level 10-14. Yet I cannot win.

I understand math (PhD in the sciences). I understand probability, percentages, etc. This particular program/game has to have some decided "tweaks" to standard probabilities -at least the ways they supposedly are programmed here.

I am not happy.

After my completely **** 12-round losing streak, I totally feel you (and anyone else who has ever gotten stuck on any opponent for an ungodly number of times). Whatever they're doing feels way beyond normal bounds of realistic probability. Say that the max 'crit' per attack is 10% on a particularly hard battle. Not hitting that 10% over 30 times in a row has a chance of happening ... like 4% of the time. I guess if we are to assume that there's a 10% chance per battle (predetermined at the start, which is possible programming-wise, ie. you start the battle and the game either decides you win or lose, instead of rolling per turn) then that's a 28-32% chance of happening with as many turns as it happened to me. Admittedly not as rare, but then we'd see way more people stalling for longer on harder battles.

So, I don't know. That's a lot of assumptions on something we can't prove (max. crit chance, whether the game rolls for the entire battle at the start or per turn) etc etc. Still leaves a sour taste in everyone's mouth. It's not like events in other games where you can use skill or resources to overcome a challenge.

It is unfair. As a European player I was robbed of 25% of the tournament time that players from the USA got. I will keep that in mind. If I manage to stay awake, I will try once on the Yule Mule. It either works out or I won't get it. I definitely won't speed up the tournament or buy an ultimate hit. I just used 2 gems to get the Reindeer out of the evolution flower to try it out, but that was it and I still have quite many gems from the various goals (none bought).

Best wishes to all and good night later on! The tournament at least was a nice change from breeding Reinmoose after Reinmoose and collect money for expansions, which started to bore me already.

I just got free from my travel and family time to login to the forum. I'm sorry I didn't see your post in time, but in catching up I see you got past it. :)

I finished! Unicorn beat Treebra, Nightmare beat Citrine (2nd try), and on the second try, Unicorn beat Yule Mule. Since I still have no Xmas element animals, despite this one not having the element, I feel a less crappy about this whole holiday thing here.

Best of luck to everyone still trying.

I can't find it now but there was a really great, interesting thread a while ago about how it seemed like those who were able to breed a unicorn and emerald early then had an extremely difficult time breeding any new supers. While those who could breed a number of supers were denied the unicorn. It now seems it is more like for the holidays there is the group allowed to breed Xmas animals and the other group allowed success in this tournament. I fall into the tournament luck but no breeding luck group. It seems almost the only people who can succeed in both are those who spend a significant amout of gems to do so. It's uncanny how often the game's "luck" is of an either/or variety.

Wow I got lucky... Planned to ultimate on the third hit for toucan this time, and my sloth got a crit on the second hit.

This is so stressful. -_-

Ok on to round 10...

12 losses to Toucan now. I definitely won't finish the tournament.

Man... how did I get stuck on this ALL DAY? This game is so mean.

Oh well. Like, oh well. At least I got a Pumpkin Panda yesterday.

I wish that were true for me this time around - it usually is - just not when I can least afford it, the super-short tourney. I breezed through the early rounds and got stuck on the Steam Trunk. But now I am just as stuck on the next round. 3 losses and counting.


I've lost twice with the Sloth and then once so far with Vinnie. Both level 15 before starting. Don't know what to try next. I don't have another level 15 super rare with nature.

Update: just read you already finished the tournament

It's 2:30am here and I've finally finished and can go to bed (I agree this should have been 24 hours to make it fair across all timezones!)

After a VERY tough round 10, I managed to beat round 11 and 12 in one critical hit on the 1st try, yay! :)

I beat the round 11 Citrine with a level 8 racmoon !!!! (Random, but true!!!! No idea why I even picked a COMMON level 8, sleep deprivation kicking in perhaps)

I beat the round 12 mule with a level 10 falconch

Just two more rounds to go. I have enough for two ultimates now, used one on the Toucan, so I guess if I have too I can use them. I don't really want use the rest of my gems but I don't want to lose this tournament. I hate these short tournaments on weekends. This one was especially diffacult because i was out doing Christmas shopping all day.

Lost twice last round this time with unicorn
It's 3:00 am now
I would say 24 hour tournament is ideal
Not fair for those who r not in USA

Guys this tournaments that takes 36 hours is not convenient at all for me and all other players living in European time zones. The designers must have made it such that it starts in the morning of USA time zone so that they will have one sleeping time during the tournament. while players in Europe would have to suffer 2 sleeping times. Practically, that means players in Europe can play the tournament like 18-20 times while the players in north or south America have like 7-8 hours more as advantage. and honestly considering the difficulty of the battles its almost impossible to finish the tournament of 12 missions in only 18-20 trys.

That is the problem with this tournament.
TL should make two days 48 hours instead of 36 hours.

Absolutely Agree! I seriously doubt I'll get this one completed. Holidays, weekend shopping evening gatherings. Come on TL give just a little. Promise a small amount of generosity wont hurt.
