The You Yu Tournament is another Ranking Dungeon where players will be able to use a fixed team in pursuit of obtaining a Crown (3%) and You Yu prize (20%).
The notion of using a fixed team is always exciting as it puts players on an even footing as there is not Monster Box advantage. With that being said, fixed teams can also be frustrating as skyfalls can play a major role along with potentially utilizing an unfamiliar play style. In the case of the You Yu Tournament, the only foreign matching pattern is the 3×3 Heart Box matched on the final floor to trigger FUA2 . Unfortunately, the dungeon is riddled with RNG/luck hurdles and can be quite frustrating to play.
This article will outline strategies for achieving a high score along with tips and tricks for the dungeon at hand.

In Ranking Dungeons, players are scored based on the following:
- Each Combo is worth 5,000 points
- Each second remaining is worth 500 points
- Hitting 40 Million damage is 10,000 points
- Each active used to kill a floor (no combo made) is -5,000 points
Due to the nature of the fixed team, the penalty of using an active skill is not applicable.
In regards to Combo count, each combo made on a floor is worth (5,000/6) 833 points which means it is worth pursuing on every given floor along with Skyfalls being beneficial.
Xiang Mei Leader Skill
Xiang Mei was once heralded as a premier leader but quickly fell from grace once more efficient cards were released. Her main drawback is her orb hungry nature that prevents activation in harder content and forces her to be more reliant on Active Skills.
Thankfully, she is well suited for this Ranking Dungeon as she has all the tools needed to sweep each floor in a single turn.
Xiang Mei’s multiplier has two components and gains significant momentum when achieving two Heart combos:
- 9x 0-1 Heart combos
- 144x 2 or more Heart combos
This scaling multiplier is important because one does not require two Heart Combos for some floors as Killer awakenings add additional damage.
Due to the fact that the buff to Healers always occurs, one will only see 16x ATK when matching 2 sets of Hearts but the actual multiplier is 144x.
Team & relevant awakenings
Out Xiang Mei team has numerous Fire Row awakenings which means forming 6 connected Fire orbs can be an efficient means to increasing damage output. Of course this comes at the price of one Combo, but a Row can be instantly formed via Laila actives.
- Xiang Mei Do not use her active skill if possible. 1 turn haste
- Uriel Light to Fire, Dark to Heal Combos with Gadius
- Gadius Full board to Fire, Light, Dark, & Heal. 1 turn Haste
- Laila x2 Creates Row of Fire at bottom (5 turn CD)
Due to the fact that Laila has a 5 turn cooldown, one of them can be used twice in the dungeon.
Floor by floor strategy
Puzzling speed and favourable boards will always be required for any Ranking Dungeon, but going in with a soft template can help reduce stress and improve your total score. The following is not meant to be an absolute requirement for each run, but will be of help for most runs.
All Water spawns have two times the effective HP due to the fact that they take 50% less damage from Fire.
The Notes assume each board is max combo-ed.
JP Score tracker
The following chart is by no means a perfect prediction of the NA cutoff and should only be used as a point of reference; however, NA tends to score lower when it comes to fixed teams.
Crown Cutoff: 140,628
You Yu: 133,080

The You Yu Ranking Tournament is an exciting event as it gives players the chance to acquire a 300,000 MP card for free along with the shot at a 3% Crown.
The fixed team aspect can be a blessing or burden depending on your Monster Box and play style, but the dungeon is riddled with horrible RNG hurdles that must be overcome.
