weird to have a item avoid all the rules of every other item except the Neeko one
It would kind of break stuff if it didn't. You still have to equip it on a unit initially in order to create the item, then you sell the unit and it goes back to your stockpile, but if they reduced your unit count it could probably cause issues.

Gotta be honest, I'm getting real sick of seeing 2/3 of the lobby run Woodland/Druid in the early game every single time. I get it's made to be an early game comp to transition out of but it makes the first several rounds completely monotonous.

My one big issue with this game is the carousel. The fact that you cannot mouse over and see what heroes they are is just dumb.

ah finally got some use out of Mundo but barely b/c of mountain hex + right item choices + lack of heavy counter sets from others until the end where this person got some wild mage/inferno/other set that wrecked only me and barely beat the others

Yeah I keep forcing mundo on mountain and it not working out.

From what I'm seeing everyone is hyper rolling something and you gotta roll to preserve life even when you want to econ

someone hyper rolled 100 gold (what they told me towards the end) to get 4 three star's of grey and blue champions by 5-1
i guess the increase damage for three star's makes it way more juicy to try and get multiples then it use to

It's refreshingly different to Set 1 where you finished close to every game on lvl 8-9 and with mostly 2 star units.

Set 2 now you finish few games at lvl 9 and everyone at the end has 1-3 3*

ok something is stunning my ranged auto attack units

had a three star Kindred that stopped attacking for 4 seconds when there was just a vlad, veigar and brand around. a round earlier a naut ult stopped Sivir from attacking before the animation reached her and 2 seconds afterwards
also 2 star Scion with defense items always out damaged everything no matter the placement lol

also got great rng for mages wrecked everyone faced the last person they didn't who had a 6 light soraka and it destroyed him for the rest of the game

had tricked out Qiyana winning despite myself (had her with mage hat even) chugging along and someone i didn't face or pay attention to since early game shows up in my grid...he had 5 three star's and just WRECKING everyone by the end at 7-2 they had 6 three star's and win with a comfy hp of 40

4 total people had a three star..the person who won had 6. RNG is too good right?




then just faced someone got that full mage and protect comp (three star ivan + 2 star mao) + ocean lux for free mana

I'm recently giving this a shot as I'm not really feeling how Dota Underlords is turning out at the moment.

Being unfamiliar with TFT or even LOL in general, the carousel without tooltips is a big impediment to my learning process.
Nothing that can't be solved without external resources or dozen of hours trial and error.
Game seems to have the best potential out of all 3 main Autobattlers out there but this is also in the most dire need of QoL stuff (even things like colour-coding the alliance bonuses).

Definitely agreed on the carousel, but I almost feel like color coding the synergies would hurt more than help, especially if they keep totally revamping the unit sets every so often.

I got the hang if set 2 much quicker than set 1. I was extremely lost playing TFT for the first time switching from underlords.

Honestly, hyper-rolling as a strat never pays off for me, so I've just stopped. Regular ass rolling and economizing is good enough for normal games, so that's what I'll do.

Sidenote, I tried to type "normal s" with no space like 15 times and somehow my spellchecker is just not interested in learning the distinction lol.

I think you should be rolling more aggressively at least, econing to 50 will make you take way too much damage

i use to always rush to 7 then reroll like crazy but i've had success with staying at level 3 and gathering money then jumping straight from 4 to 6 or sometimes let it naturally get to half to 5 then jumping to 7 b/c o this i can hold 2 more possible builds on the bench then swap out for a new one if others are hyper rolling and taking up units i might have

You gotta have a strong start to not have to roll/level to keep healthy however. Woodland or finding some natural upgrades

First set of new champs for set 2!


Looks like Ammumu has basically his ult from the game (roots, silences, disarms in an AoE with some damage), Lucian has his regular ult (fires a bunch of shots off at once, and Senna has her Q (does damage to enemies and heal allies in a line). The Soulbound synergy feels... very very strong, especially with Light.

I don't really think a 5* unit is going to solve Inferno's frontline woes, but hey, we'll see.

No it won't solve them but it let's you go all in on the synergy like you couldn't before.

I got to try 6 assassin recently but only ended up in 3rd place with it. I think I needed more gloves.

Also tried a Volibear comp that was 4 glacial 3 berserker 3 Electric 4 BM Voli having the spat. That one was incredible but died to inferno

when 4 3* units aren't good enough. Stupid inferno lux 2 on their side just ripped through my backline and predators cleaned them up

newest hotness is eggrolling, a rename of chinese hyper rolling I think. It means hyper rolling early on for woodlands Diana and Renekton IIRC hard to find concrete info on them.

the meta seems to coalesce into that and hyper rolling predators, ocean/mages late game and various singed poison comps.

Meh, just saw two people with very similar usernames, one doing a very heavy econ build. And what is the problem with econ builds? Well, it gets trampled by hyper rolling before getting online. So the other people with the almost same username does what?
Hyper roll all woodland and predadors. It doesn't match, it doesn't get you to top 4, but that's ok, the goal of one account is to just drain all predators and woodland from the pool while the other forces a more endgame build safe from comps that are strong early on.

greatest pivot in my TFT history, someone luxked out and got 4 Electric while at 1hp so i pivoted hard right as they fought and beat me senseless to 4 Mystics and that also help me with this annoying brand build someone and i walk my way to the win from rushing to level 9 with 4 mystics, 4 light, 4 ocean, with Aatrox, Qiyana doing 3-4k damage a match

that's sinster and hard to fix for Riot i would think


someone got 6 blademasters (turning Qiyana to one) then three star Qiyana, Yasous and Rek. no one went tanks the only person to put up a fight was level 8 3 poison, 4 glac
