Tourney Type 2:
Recently, tourney Type 2 revolved a bit too much on the usage of Judge Lynch, Schatzi and Zaveli splashed, paired with 5 or 6 cards of another clan.
We don’t like splash cards to be too popular and this is why we decided to add to the ban list those 3 cards, the same thing we did with similar cards like Phoebe, Beck - Nena and Spyke Mt.
For the most used clans, Bangers and Hive were the most popular options.
We decided to add Joy, Shinobi and Oon Cr to the ban list.
Last but not least, we added both Nekron and Butcher Braxton to the ban list. The reason is that these cards are against the logic of a TQ, and players using these cards would make the matches unnecessary long and frustrating for competitive players.

Tourney Type 1:
Compared to tourney Type 2, in Type 1 high level cards are not played that much since they don’t award the player too many points.
The only exception to this rule was Shinobi, who proved to be extremely popular in Bangers decks.
There was a bit of a ‘trio’ of clans dominating TQ type 1 recently: Bangers, All Stars and Uppers (since the release of McLayton).
We decided to add to the banlist one card for each of those clans: Robb Cr, Shinobi and Wendel.
We’ve also added Schatzi to the ban list, as he was popular as a splash card here as well.
Last but not least, we decided to restore Lehane by banning John and to restore Floyd by banning Glover, to slightly boost those clans who aren’t too much played at the moment.
We considered a return of Avola as well, but first we want to observe the impact of Mimmo in the DT meta.

As this guide is 2 years old. I am closing this until I find another player willing to give a more updated DT guide.

If anyone knows someone who will be interested in creating a more recent DT guide. Please contact me.

With the new system with standard vs extended etc etc. How do the DT's work now as don't see seperate room for 25* down and 26* up. Are we all lumped into same room now and vs eachother with system autopairing within a certain *count or what? I'm just wondering for purposes of figuring out the highest possible scoring rate strategy deck wise as things do seem to changed a little bit, as I'm racking up much bigger scores with a 25* deck than I use to.

Guidance much appreciated.

I generally agree with NaaRcho except for Mr Dark: an 8 power Montana is useful, even if it is a damage reducer.

wednesday 01/05

I'm currently running a Montana deck which is based around hitting 8 damage with Don or Valter Bianco, then picking the 4 damage off however I can. It's been really fun to play and quite successful in T1.

The deck is:

***** Don (8 damage)
***** Valter Bianco (8 damage)

**** Gianfranco (a 7/4 with protected bonus

*** Mona (6/4 with -2 opponent damage - a strong candidate to follow up 8 damage)
*** Bella LD (a 6/4 with cancel opponents power and damage modifier - allows her to hit her 4 damage with regularity)

** Icaro (7/2 with -1 life win or lose allows it to set up 3 damage cards like Carmine or Homy)
** Homy (6/3 damage exchange)

Am I missing anything obvious with Montana here? Budget isn't an issue, I've got the full set, I just want to know if I can improve this deck anywhere, thanks!

Haven't used Berzerk in a while now although Miloz and Melanie always were strong 2*. Clive and Konrad can be used together for a surprise KO

friday 26/04

There is no point on playing more than 8 cards in T1, it is done in T2 only to reach +25*

@25thNight: I HATE that bug! But I've found when it happens, all you can do is leave the match. You don't have time to close the app and restart, and quitting is better than timing out, in my opinion...

Grace, Newell, Fast bender, Berghart, Galileo, Boomstock are some good 2's and 3's for example

saturday 09/02

The same.
Maybe it's better to show what exactly is incompatible in the message.

So that's why! Thanks for the enlightenment @Thoazol

By using a hand which has lower stars instead of a full 25* hand, you end up getting more points. The points you gain in DT per match is based on the star count of the cards you win with (along with a couple other factors). So, for example, if you win with a 2* card against a 5* card, you get 5 points. On the opposite, if you win with a 5* card against a 2*, you only get 1 point. That's what he means smiley

Closing because my presets got deleted due to people voting them red. I'll probably finish this in my own time but won't bother to publish the decks or prioritise alphabetical order.

If the link doesn’t work or changes you can always go to the top and follow
Game>game modes>tourney All the rules are listed there and would be updated if/when there are changes.

Izy7 pretty much explains it in the first place. The DT starts on the hour like 08:00 exactly and ends at 09:00 but if you are in the middle of a fight that you started at 08:59 when you finish that fight the points count. So basically if there’s :15 left in a tourney start a fight. You will end up in whatever place you end up in.

A bit late to the party, but I think a new tip to this post is to try and win two rounds. If you’re going to loose for sure use all the pills
