Nyx Level Tournament Strategies

Introduction

The Nyx Level Ranking Tournament not only has a pretty sweet name but is also positioned well as a 5% Crown event that also features Fixed Leaders.

Fixed Leaders are one of the more restrictive types of Tournaments due to the fact that it greatly hinders your sub options. Thankfully, this Ranking Dungeon has various metrics boosted so there are several ways to augment your score.

This article will explain my approach to this Ranking Tournament for obtaining a Crown.

Chillin’ With Qilin Tournament Video

Introduction

The Chillin’ With Qilin Tournament has gone live today and may catch some players off guard as there was very little lead up time/announcements. Thankfully, this Tournament is straight forward in the sense that it is a Fixed Team along with it primarily testing pure matching skills.

As such, there is not too much to really say outside of max comboing each board as fast as possible due to the 1.5x bonus for Time Remaining.

On the bright side, the top 7% of players will receive a Crown but there will be a sizable amount of “bottlenecking” around the threshold due to the No Skyfalls and Fixed team.

Leader Skill

Qilin’s Leader Skill relies on matching combos along with bonus damage if 5 or less orbs remain while having a No Skyfall clause. This no Skyfall clause will impose some luck on having nice boards but will even out over time. Either way, the key is to match as fast as possible.

Due to the scaling Leader Skill via combos means players do not always have to Fully Activate on a given floor and simply brute forcing combos will work.

Matching

Out of the 7 floors, Floor 1, 2, and 3 can be killed with just comboing a board and hitting 7 combos.

For floor 4, you can kill without Full Activation but it will require 2 Water combos. Due to the presence of 2 Orb Enhances blue + orb, damage calculations are wildly inconsistent and hard to do on the spot. As such, if you see yourself without 2 Water combos, I would aim for Full Activation.

Floor 5 will require Full Activation whereas Floor 6 will die with high combos and Guard Break proc.

Finally, the final Floor will require Full Activation with many combos and Water matches. As such, just use Suou as it will be far more consistent and easy to solve.

Conclusion

The Chillin With Qilin Ranking Tournament is fairly straight forward and there is not much “strategy” to be used as it is primarily a test of puzzling skills.

With that being said, there will always be some luck/variance due to lower combo count boards and whether or not Guard Break can be activation.

Either way, let me know what you think about this Tournament in the comments below.

Happy Puzzling!

Untitled Beach Ranking Tournament Strategies

Introduction

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.

PAD Harvest Ranking Tournament Strategies

Introduction

The PAD Harvest Ranking Tournament has gone live in North America and gives players a chance to play for lucrative rewards along with a 7% Crown.

As a twist, this Fixed Team will only have to face a one floor but is nearly impossible to kill in a single turn. In fact, killing in two turns is difficult and if players are able to do so, they are almost always going to obtain a Crown.

This article will explain my approach to this Ranking Tournament for clearing it in two turns.

Score breakdown

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

Super Ultimate Ranking Rush [1] – No RCV Strategies

Introduction

The Super Ultimate Ranking Rush [1] – No RCV Ranking Dungeon has gone live in North America and gives players a chance to play for lucrative rewards along with a 7% Crown.

This will continue the notion of using Fixed Leaders but having players populate the subs themselves. This may give the illusion of a more level playing field but is sometimes more restrictive as certain cards are significantly stronger. With that being said, the most important factor in this Tournament will be Skyfalls due to the no RCV component.

This is good and bad as it opens up team building options but also has a certain degree of luck involved.

Regardless, article will summarize the two main strategies that can be employed by players to improve their chances of success.
