English badna0 - last answer from SLOSHY13, Monday 14/04, 07:17.
Hi, I'm badna0, and I'm a pretty avid DT player. Not a tournament victor (yet), but have managed respectable top 10 finishes, a few top 5's, and a personal best of 803 bp. I'd like to give a few pieces of advice for dt's.

Trying to improve on the previous iteration of this guide: http://www.urban-rivals.com/en/community/forum/?mode=viewsubject&forum_page=0&id_subject=2049903&subject_page=0#answers

Since the abolishment of T1/T2, I don't feel a lot of the DT rules mentioned in the guide are as relevant as they used to be. I'd like to outline a few principles for constructing and playing a good DT deck.


1. Building a deck: Aiming for a higher star count (27-30-ish stars) is usually a good idea. A good deck simply needs several nukes with good round winning potential in order to put 2hko pressure.

Links to good decks:
First Place-In Spyke We Trust V2 (standard)
DT Standard Conquered (standard)
E PER LA PRIMA VOLTA!!!!!! (extended)
The strongest decks that I've seen have these higher star counts. Notice how some of these decks can be relatively cheap, too. (

What is the Daily Tournament (DT)?

 Despite its name, DT is actually a tournament that happens every alternate hour which last for an hour every day.

Daily schedule based on your time zone, GMT +13:
[12:00 - 13:00], [14:00 - 15:00], [16:00 - 17:00], [18:00 - 19:00], [20:00 - 21:00], [22:00 - 23:00]
[00:00 - 01:00], [02:00 - 03:00], [04:00 - 05:00], [06:00 - 07:00], [08:00 - 09:00], [10:00 - 11:00].

 To play, all you have to do is go to one of these rooms: Type 1, Type 2, or ELO – fight using a valid deck and score as many battle points as you can during the duration of the tournament.

The key to success: (Results may vary)

1. Golden Rule: Play Fast (Win fast / Lose fast) & Don’t quit

“DT is not about who got the most wins - It's about points accumulated per minute regardless of the outcome. Always think about saving time off your game. Eg: 3x 2 minutes with 10 points (lose) will be the same as 1x 6 minutes game with 30 points (win)”

2. Choose your deck wisely:

→ a. Low star count:
- (T1) Less than 25 stars deck
- (T2) 9 – 10 cards with 26 star count

“You earn more points if your characters defeat a higher level opponent”

→ b. Use high damage cards (Aim 2 hits K.O)

→ c. Limit your deck to 1 of the following OR avoid these cards completely:

- Damage reducers

“This will depend on the card – consider the card’s usefulness in your deck”

- (+) Life ability

“In DT, it’s about the cards not the clans... Don’t be afraid to use clans with + life bonus provided you have the 2 hits K.O tactics in mind... On the other hand, - life is always acceptable as an option”

- Permanent ELO banned cards

“For every permanent ELO banned card in your draw, 2 points will be removed from your battle points as a penalty”

3. Extra Battle Strategy:

→ a. Save Pillz for K.O (Adds + 2 to your battle pts at the end of your match)
→ b. Type 1 vs Type 2 (Different rooms but both can be used for DT equally – just pick whatever suits your style)

4. Don’t be afraid to experiment and find the deck that works best for you

5. Have fun

Okay, so I tried T1 and I don't like it. So I'm making the switch to T2.

Post what you got for T2 here and I may very well steal it for my own twisted ambition.

To be fair, here's a little something you might want to try on for size.

T1 has returned and the revival of low star decks is sure to follow. To begin the celebration, I invite you all to share your T1 decks.

Here's one of my ideas.

Its been ages since the last bans list was updated. Please update the ban list.
I'll even help you with a few obvious ones :-

Mechakolos = -10
Noctezuma = -10
El Divino = -10
Amber = -20
Morphun = -20
Eryk = -20
Eklore = -20

and it would really, really, really help if a 25*-29* star deck would not end up facing a 35*-40* deck.

Looking into playing top 50 in T1.
As of Elo i use a GHEIST Deck, but, as it was once said - GHEIST isn't the T1 clan.
This is why i've decided to make a T1 deck.

So, what would be the most overpowered deck you can think of? ( you can recomend any cards, ever the BIG 5 in the deck).

I got a 100 euro Wallie card for christmas, so clintz isn't a problem.

Thanks in advance.

I've been wondering if games that started while the DT was ongoing but finish after the DT finishes count towards the overall score? I've just finished in a new record place for me I think, if the points count it certainly will be

English EA-Maynstream - last answer from playallday_0, Sunday 23/03, 03:18.
If you look at the past dt, everyone in the tournament got 9874 clintz. I'm not sure why this is, could anyone explain? Or is it just a bug?

Hello EA-Maynstream,

Congratulations! You finished 20th in the last Daily Tournament with 296 Battle Points.

Well done! You ranked among the first third of the tournament!

You won 9 874 Clintz and 1 Credit.
You now have 57 182 Clintz that you can use to buy new characters on the Market.

151 players took part in the tournament. They accumulated 17 894 Battle Points and the Jackpot has gone up to 19 174 Clintz.

Good luck in the next Daily Tournament!

English 100th - last answer from cofferide, Wednesday 19/03, 08:08.
As an experienced daily tournament player I can't tell you the amount of messages in game and private messages I've had asking my deck and how to play daily tournaments and how many people I've played against who could have won the tournament or at least placed a lot higher with a minor change to his deck or play style.

What I've come up with to help the community out is an idea which I think will help greatly newer players and maybe even vets who are 1 ingredient away from making that Jamie Oliver cake. I believe if I can win a tournament you can so the plan is..

You will give me your favorite clan(s) and a budget if you have one and I will make you a deck, not only will I make you the deck I will then play in the next tournament I can with it to see what kind of numbers I can get with it. This will give you a rough idea of how well the deck can place and maybe you can even beat my score!

So post away! If you are a vet don't be ashamed to ask! If you know anyone who would need help like this direct them to this thread
