The Untitled Beach Ranking Tournament has gone live in North America and gives players a chance to play for lucrative rewards along with a 3% Crown.
As a twist, this dungeon will give players fixed leaders and have players build their own subs. This gives the illusion of choice but really boils down to a pseudo Monster Box check as certain cards are far superior. Thankfully, several key cards are actually farmable and some subs are flexible.
To further spice things up, time remaining will be worth twice as much. This places a much heavier emphasis on how fast you go and not fully matching each board will still get you a Crown.
This article will explain my approach to this Ranking Tournament for obtaining a Crown.
In Ranking Dungeons, players are scored based on the following:
- Each Combo is worth 5,000 points
- Each second remaining is worth
- 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 fact that the Untitled Ranking Tournament contains only 5 floor, combos are worth 1,000 points (minus animation time) but at the same time, each second is also worth 1,000 points.
This provides an interesting twist as you want to strike a balance between speed and combos. For myself, I have found matching 3-4 combos as fast as possible to be the best strategy and let Skyfalls occur.
The dungeon itself is not terribly ridden with annoying mechanics and the first major hurdle players will encounter is the fixed leaders.
Full dungeon breakdown can be found HERE.
We are given Beach Barbara & Julie as the “friend” leader and her skill up material as “our” leader. This results in only a single Leader Skill and the best approach to is use a Leader Swap active to give yourself a more reliable multiplier.
As such, players will use Beyzul on Floor 1 and then continue through the dungeon. Just make sure you have sufficient Skill Boosts (you do get 2 more from “friend” leader).
This new pairing will rely on matching Fire and Water orbs to sweep the dungeon.
Evolution Material Killer
The first floor features three Dragon Fruits who are only and Evolution type. This means one Killer Weapon is ideal to sweep this floor quickly and the best option is Zeo Megazord from the Power Rangers Collab as it is the only Weapon Assist that offers two Evolution Killer awakenings. This is usually placed on Beyzul.
Meimei will preemptively spawn 15 Hearts orbs which will make it essentially impossible to combo. Furthermore she has 13.3M DEF and 31M HP. This forces me to use Beach Barbara & Julie’s active for the bicolour board changer and DEF break.
Goemon will preemptively cause 2 turns of Awoken Binds and will always transform the board into a 22-8 Fire/Water split. It is this reason why the TAMADRA’s Swimming Ring is the ideal choice for this Ranking. Using it will clear the Awoken Binds and produce a perfect 15-15 board which can be easily solved into 10 combos.
This is one of the largest determinants for a high score and owning TAMADRA’s Swimming Ring will give you a noticeable advantage.
Your “friend” leader is able to provide a sizable amount of damage but will require additional help if when matching as little combos as possible. As such, I look for a card with Killers or numerous >80% awakening. For myself, this will be my own Beach Barbara & Julie or more ideally, Tilly .
My team composition
Taking all of the above points into consideration, this is the team I have chosen to use:
Untitled Beach Tournament
The TAMADRA’s Swimming Ring is the ideal choice for this Ranking but due to my own mistake, I do not own one. As such, Light Metatron’s revamped active now clears Awoken Binds with no additional animation.
Orpharion and Nergigante bring 8 Skill Boosts in total along with FUA . Finally, my Beach Barbara & Julie functions as a Damage Stick and inherits Helen to gain a >80% awakening. I prefer Beach Barbara & Julie to most other options (outside Tilly ) due to her damage coming from Killers and not a combo count. This blends well with my strategy for making a few combos as fast as possible.
Active Skill Usage
|1||Match Fire + Water after swapping|
|2||Urd, column of Hearts, Fire + Water|
|3||–||Fire + Water|
|4||BJ + swipe and pray|
|5||Light Metatron + 22-8 solve|
The Untitled Beach Tournament relies on a surprising number of Farmable cards to succeed. This is pleasant to say the least but it is unfortunate the TAMADRA’s Swimming Ring is currently unavailable and not trade-able.
Due to the short number of floors and boosted score for Time Remaining, scores will be quite bottle necked around the Crown cutoff. As such, moving even just a second faster could make all the difference and is the main reason why I only pursue fast, short combos.
