Another tournament animal by the sound of its description. And it appears one of its element is water, judging by the habitat. At least, this can go into storage as I'm running out of space. We'll know more on Friday.:)

I'm ashamed to admit I spent 64 gems on this tournament. I was doing so good not to but, then it became a vendetta to get it and stick it in storage for a while. Now I have to go buy gems so I go get Bygone alley. It would have been cheaper just hit Ultimate on the 2nd attempt. Live and learn I suppose. Good luck and good night.

Try 2 Sea Drake Win with Water (2nd hit)

R13 Emerald Dragon L18 (Gemstone/Nature)
Try 1 Twilight Troll Loss with Dark
Try 2 Cerberus Win with Dark (1st hit)

R14 Growvine L19 (Dark/Nature)
Try 1 Lemurcury L13 Loss with Cosmic (This is the first time I use Lemurcury and the element of Cosmic. I was inspired by huka8cafe (Post #11). Unfortunately, it did not work for me.)
Try 2 Gretel Loss with Fire
Try 3 Skeletal Dragon Loss with Fire
Try 4 Red Weasel Win with Fire (3rd hit)

R15 Sugarskull Glider L20 (Skull/Nature)
Try 1 Gretel Loss with Fire
Try 2 Repuliphant Win with Fire (2nd hit)

R16 Turtle Dove L20 (Water/Nature)
Try 1 Grand Unicorn Loss with (Rainbow, Gemstone, Rainbow)
Try 2 Hippogryph Loss with Lightning
Try 3 Hercules Loss with Lightning
Try 4 Grand Unicorn Loss with Rainbow (My Ultra Rare animals performed poorly in this tournament)
Try 5 Mrs. Potter Loss with Lightning (Four of my best fighters, Mrs. Potter, Hercules, Twilight Troll, Gretel, in the past scored nothing so far in this tournament.)
Try 6 Bansheep Loss with Lightning
Try 7 Reckless Roc Loss with Lightning
Try 8 Shockatoo Loss with Lightning
Try 9 Cerberus Win with Lightning (3rd hit) (I have a low expectation for it as Cerberus was used once in Round 13 using Dark with a critical hit in the first strike so I hesitate to use it. It demonstrates again how random this tournament becomes. It's getting frustrated more and more. Although I have only two more rounds to go, as the way it is, It will be difficult to complete (playing 8 more times) unless I am lucky. In any way, I will not use gems to speed up the game nor spend 30 gems to skip the round. I will not spend a single gem even if I will not get this bull in the last hour.)

R17 Scaredy Cat L20 (Halloween/Nature)
Try 1 Big Bad Wolf Loss with Water (I keep the Bad Wolf to the last but it doesn't work. Oh no, not again. It doesn't matter as I do not have enough time probably.)
Try 2 Gretel Loss with Fire (This is the example of poor-performing Ultra Rare animals in this tournament. I used Gretel 3 times on Fire and all failed. I will use only Gretel Fire for this round now to see how far it can go.)
Try 3 Gretel Loss with Fire (4th time Fire failed in this tournament. My chance of completing this tournament is getting slimmer.)
Try 4 Gretel Loss with Fire (5th try. From statistical perspective, for this epic, ultra rare animal, not a single critical hit after 15 strong hits, I have to say, does not make sense. I may have 4 more tries and really like to see how far it can go.)
Try 5 Gretel Win with Fire (1st hit) (Finally, it took 6 tries. It may be too late though for me. I still has 3 trie before the end of the event.)

R18 Adorabull L20 (Water/Nature)
Try 1 Lightning Leopard Loss with Lightning (I decided to use this common animal for the next few tries.)
Try 2 Lightning Leopard Win with Lightning (1st two hits are critical)

I have a feeling that I may not be able to beat Adorabull if I use Crystal Unicorn or Grand Unicorn. It's hard to ignore these Ultra Rare animals but to focus a common fighter. This tournament is quite stressful.

Violet element is WEAK from one of the player here, tks for the mail & good luck :)

18)Adorabull (Water/Nature) USE THUNDER, CRYSTAL
Crystal Unicorn (Crystal) x2

I use Violet & Zodiac elements just for testing purpose but although it is weak, netruel or strong it does do the job.... this game need critical hit to win .... it does not matter if it is Strong x 3 at the end of every battle because at every battle repeating it a million times you still lose in fact although eg. 3x strong every battle (rinse & repeat every round) or would you prefer 2x weak attack last one is a critical hit :) this is all ASSUMPTION btw I try & explain much later when I am home about this in detail as much as I can when I have the time.

Thank you for posting your results. I wish you & everyone the best of luck. However, we do not have three days. It starts Friday (afternoon my time, Eastern), & ends just before midnight Pacific Time (2:59 am my time). It's really two days and X amount of hours. I'm sure you know this, but perhaps the newer players may think they have more time than they really do.

Take care, & good luck with the Storybook if you are still working on it. :D

Good luck all! I may not complete this tournament. I won't be able to record my results. Round 1 I beat with Rock Rino, Round 2 Frostfang, Round 3 Treent. That's probably it for me. I've found that if I start tournaments with common animals, when possible, I seem to do better later in the tournament.

Maybe someone will find this helpful (recommended fighters for use in tourneys & battlegrounds): http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?83277-Battlegrounds-amp-Tournaments-Strategy-Guide-amp-Discussion. Please note that this chart does not include the newer elements, or the changes to what had previously been single element animals (example, Barn Owl - Autumn, Dandelion - Spring).

Gem is strong against both earth and plant if you have that, my cu got critical first hit.. You might try Halloween or spring if you don't have a gem hybrid or cu

Thunder = Electric = Lightning = Zeus = Electricity = Flash
Testing purple = violet = magic = pale fire along the way lol

I use Violet & Zodiac elements just for testing purpose but although it is weak, netruel or strong it does do the job.... this game need critical hit to win .... it does not matter if it is Strong x 3 at the end of every battle because at every battle repeating it a million times you still lose in fact although eg. 3x strong every battle (rinse & repeat every round) or would you prefer 2x weak attack last one is a critical hit :) this is all ASSUMPTION btw I try & explain much later when I am home about this in detail as much as I can when I have the time.

Congratulations to you completion of the tournament. I'm looking forward to your more detailed analysis on the probability of getting critical hits. Although I agree with you that it doesn't matter if you're getting weak, neutral, or strong hits of the 2 non-critical-hit strikes, you need one critical hit to do the job. From the beginning, we were told that you need to select animals with right elements (see the strength-weakness chart created by Chippychan in the thread of Battlegrounds & Tournaments Strategy Guide).

Chippychan made the following statement "The following are recommended to help choose the ideal fighter based on tested strengths/weaknesses, as well as highest rarity. The theory behind choosing an ideal fighter is that an animal of higher rarity may have better odds of landing a 'Critical' against an opponent when using an attack that normally registers a 'Strong' hit. It is also theorized that a high-level fighter may have better odds. It's not a guarantee to win with one of these fighters, but it may increase your odds. Note that ANY animal of ANY level or rarity has a chance of landing a winning 'Critical' using ANY element (even 'Weak' ones)."

Therefore, your finding makes sense but it's not new. To actually fight n the tournaments, we have no choice but to follow three rules in selecting our best fighters based on 1) strength/weakness of the elements of the opposing fighter; 2) rarity; 3) level of the fighting animal. By following Rule #1, you will always getting strong hits (neither weak or neutral hits) and strong hits give you a higher probability of registering a critical hit to win the game. Rules #2 & 3 will give you even better probability of getting a critical hit. I know some players are not following these rules and seem to still win the game. However, I like to know if they have a theory behind it. The game won't be very interesting if it's purely based on luck.

this is just theories or assumption btw... at the end of the day use whatever method to help or aid you in completion of the battles in your own ways... I am just lvl40+ in FFS so compare to many veterans here who played day1 or done way more battles than me... in the early days of DS I was using only commons to win there is some discussing over at DS but that was a while back...

thanks to Chippychan who made the awesome guide on battle it really help a newbie like me to understand way quicker on elements :)

Theory or Assumption 1: Time
IMO: with 3days to battle let's face it that is the most time consuming state to ever put you in... if you can battle almost every hour you are already winning 50% of the tournament... battle every hour doing WEAK attack & hoping for a critical hit is ANYTIME way better than putting Ultra Rare if you can only afford 5 times in a day.... if you are that insane to battle 24x in a day Vs 5x a day, let's face it even your lvl4 monster is way stronger if you get what I mean... 4gems can speed up that awful hourly wait.. so do prepare yourself how many hours or log in per day if you want to start the particular tournament.

Theory or Assumption 2: Commons VS Ultra Rare
IMO: I am not going to lied about this, it works for some but it does not work for others... when I was lvl15 I was the lucky player to get a CU that early... my first tournament I was lvl15 or 17 Walrust I believe the whole tournament I was only using CU nothing else I do manage to win even though my CU was Lvl10.. I have not test this but I cannot blame my commons my ONLY highest common is skyker lvl15 rest are either 4 or 10...Skyker would not get lvl15 without the storybook event btw lol but if Commons work better than your super rare or ultra rare for you just stick on to it but if it does not just find another method or theory to help you...

PS: in DS we use baby fire1 or nature1 to kill ultra rare at times when we are stuck after many attempts

Theory or Assumption 3: Do notice some monster are your champions at times(winning almost every time even weak or strong attack)
IMO: this works for me at times but in a different way.... when I was at battlegrounds I notice some monster just have a higher critical hit... Eg: firefox 15 Vs CU15 yes if you are playing long ONLY YOU YOURSELF knows sending out firefox will get a better Crit hit than CU although rare vs ultra rare... if this works just use it & of cause if your CU or ultra rare perform better than just stick to it.

Theory or Assumption 4: this works well for me ATM
IMO: again it might work for me but it might be rubbish to you... I like to sent my rare/super rare fighters first ... if they are defeated I notice "use higher rarity animals" so I either play the same animal eg big bad wolf(water/earth) than donkeycrat(water/earth) than maybe a better ultra rare but not everytime it might work

Theory or Assumption 5: what might work for me might not work for you
if I will to say I use eg little red to defeat it might not apply to you sadly but if it does good for you... do notice if CU is being sent out some of us got it 1 time some take many tries well at least you know what element is needed so bring out your animal with the best theories be it common, champion or ultra rare.

Theory or Assumption 6: luck I really hate to say it but yes it is at times....
imagine you got a critical hit at 1st try vs in 5 tries using the same animal there is no animal which the game will offer you or tell you using this will get you the win ...sorry but there just is not... the theories I came out just helps you in getting better crit hits not winning the battle as some theories work well for me but there is none for you... the only 100% win animal is call 30gems yes it appear on your bottom right in every battle :p

so use whatever it helps you to win or just stick to whatever you are using if you are winning

Try a gem or water if you have one. Usually my glacial Griffin or a strong water gets him. Good luck. There's always one that you get stuck on. The Storming was hard for me and now I've lost 3xto ADORABULL. Best of luck. Maybe the next 6 will be easier.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience. It's important for players like you to do this in this forum.

I totally agree that each one should come out with his/her own approach/methodology to approach this game. However, my own experience and perhaps others' (high level players) seem to suggest that the tournament becomes more difficult (or more random or more depending on luck). I remember when I was a low level player (when I have only a handful of common Epic animals) and when I even don't know the rule of elemnt's strength and weakness relationship, I can still win relative easily. Now I am at Level 100 and have many more epic animals of ultra and super rarity than before. I still win all tournaments so far but I feel the game's probability seems to tilt to a more random scale. I feel that my ultra rare animals are not winning at a higher probability, as it should be, than super rare or even rare animals. The more good fighters I get over the time, the less number of times I can use in a single tournament. For example, I used to win 3-4 times with a given ultra rare animal such as Grand Unicorn in as many tries in a 30-round tournament, now I can only succeed 1-2 times and the successful rate decreases with increasing number of failed attempts. It's particularly frustrating that we often get stuck in a particular round for a long time (someone reported fighting for 2 and a half days in one round; my personal record is 20 tries in the final round in defeating the stubborn S'more Boar). I see this occurring more and more (for myself and others posting earlier). The tournament events become less excited and I do not care as much as before if I can complete the tournament or not.

More importantly, I refuse to use gems to speed up or skip the round even if I am at the final hour to pass the final round of the tournament.

I'm stuck on round 12... this vampire cat dude is killing me! Don't think I'll make it this time. Not fond of the shorter tournaments! Hope everyone else has better luck!

Same here! I've been stuck on him so long that if I don't win his battle and every battle til it's over I'm out and lose the tournament, I've tried everything.. CU, Cthulhu, Big bad wolf, donkeycrat, most of my high rarity, higher lvl water animals, it's being so stubborn, ugh! :/

So many examples here showed how random this tournament becomes. It's simply try and error and pure luck. It doesn't make sense.

Not sure if you are using the water or earth element with the above animals, but have you tried the earth element? In my results rnd 11 I used the water element. Rnd 12, again I used the water element and lost. The next time around I used earth and got the desired CH. Hope this helps.

I finally passed Round 17 (see Post #2 in Page 1). Now I have 3-4 hours (3-4 tries depending how late I go to sleep) to try to beat Adorabull. Strong elements for Water/Nature are Lightning or Gemstone. I like to try the same animal for these tries and I have three options - Lightning Leopard (I saw a few players eventually won with this animal after several fails with more advanced fighters), Crystal Unicorn, or Grand Unicorn. Your suggestion and feedback regarding which one to use are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I just beat it with big bad wolf but time isn't on my side now to finish, unfortunately :/ thank you for offering assistance I really appreciate it :) I used water, but found magic also hit strong when using wise owl it just never hit critical with the magic or water on owl

I've been wondering so I'm just going to throw this out for other opinions.. Besides rarity, level etc on battling animals.. I've considered a hidden variable.. As in when its either created or hatched there is may be a % of critical hit capacity that's unseen.. For instance I have doubles of a few animals..one of them may hit critical quite often while the other same type and level rarely ever does. In battling I choose what element beats the one I'm going against first.. Then I have tried and true fighters that regardless of rarity hit critical more often. This tournament is actually the first I got stuck in, still testing new animals but some of the ultras I got thinking they would do very well, can be disappointing and I end up going with lower rarity with element that's good against enemy. Your thoughts?

That's a very interesting theory! I never thought of that. Seems to make sense to me. I tend to use the common animals as much as I can, & save the stronger ones for later in the tourney. (I think I wrote that in an earlier post). It seems that my "troops," Crystal Unicorn, Treent, Prize Pony carry me through fairly easily. Oh, and Blizzard (Earth/Water). I'm lucky I've been playing long enough that I have skull, spring, ice cream, clover (or whatever it's called), autumn, Halloween, service, etc. I would think the tournaments would be much harder without them.

Take care and good luck! Thanks for sharing your theory! :D

Congratulations to you completion of the tournament. I'm looking forward to your more detailed analysis on the probability of getting critical hits. Although I agree with you that it doesn't matter if you're getting weak, neutral, or strong hits of the 2 non-critical-hit strikes, you need one critical hit to do the job. From the beginning, we were told that you need to select animals with right elements (see the strength-weakness chart created by Chippychan in the thread of Battlegrounds & Tournaments Strategy Guide).

Chippychan made the following statement "The following are recommended to help choose the ideal fighter based on tested
strengths/weaknesses, as well as highest rarity. The theory behind choosing an ideal fighter is that an animal of higher rarity may have better odds of landing a 'Critical' against an opponent when using an attack that normally registers a 'Strong' hit. It is also theorized that a high-level fighter may have better odds. It's not a guarantee to win with one of these fighters, but it may increase your odds. Note that ANY animal of ANY level or rarity has a chance of landing a winning 'Critical' using ANY element (even 'Weak' ones)."

Therefore, your finding makes sense but it's not new. To actually fight n the tournaments, we have no choice but to follow three rules in selecting our best fighters based on 1) strength/weakness of the elements of the opposing fighter; 2) rarity; 3) level of the fighting animal. By following Rule #1, you will always getting strong hits (neither weak or neutral hits) and strong hits give you a higher probability of registering a critical hit to win the game. Rules #2 & 3 will give you even better probability of getting a critical hit. I know some players are not following these rules and seem to still win the game. However, I like to know if they have a theory behind it. The game won't be very interesting if it's purely based on luck.

Very well put Supermaay! I was going to respond, but I saw your post and you covered that so well. I'm not so sure about rule three. I've easily taken down very high level opponents with a low level fighter. I still try to go for my level 15s as much as possible though.

Even though I barely played (due to reasons I'm apparently not allowed to post), I did manage to win this tournament fairly easily. These last couple of tournaments have been easy on me, but the one before that I did a million times worse than, it seems, everyone else who posted.

Good luck and best wishes to you! I hope you have a happy week. :)

Off topic but Laura I just read you aren't doing well and hope you're better very soon!

I don't have ice cream, service, music, autumn, lucky, Valentine, Xmas, space or Egypt yet lol I've only been playing a few months but did get a few special elements: rainbow, zodiac, tree, gem+gem hybrids, treasure, skull, spring and Halloween OH! And magic ;) so hoping as we go I'm able to grab a few of the others, past or new along the way

Thank you for your feedback!

I decided to use Lightning Leopard as several players reported the success of using Lightning Leopard to beat Adorabull. Luckily, I was successful in the 2nd try. I maintained my record of winning all battle tournaments I participated so far although this one is really close (3 hours before the deadline). I have expressed my opinions explicitly on recent tournaments for high-level players. I don't like the way that this game becomes more luck driven.

Another good theory & assumption I forgot....

Using 2 elements
it is very hard to explain but look at hilove69 Page 2 post#12

observe the monster it is being use for battles
16) Turtle Dove 20 (Water/Nature) -> (electric valentine autumn x-mas rainbow* / gem spring rainbow*)
Grand Unicorn(RAINBOW/GEM) gem rainbow rainbow loss
Grand Unicorn(RAINBOW/GEM) rainbow RAINBOW win
17) Scaredy Cat 20 (Halloween/Nature) -> (water shamrock spring* / fire spring* halloween rainbow)
Wild Wondercat(WATER/FIRE) fire water fire loss
Wild Wondercat(WATER/FIRE) water WATER win

it can be used or known as 2 elements attack it work great too but again if that is luck but this method works great for hilove69

FYI hilove69 bought out animals is always or almost a lot of 2 elements I notice that with a couple of past battles :)
