Undying 3 star TB really is broken. Once he meta you'll win or draw 90% of the time.

Only thing beating this if you're enemy has many summons or units left when the undying triggers.




i like it but its too easy. no reason to win early
If you keep winning early means you already got a decent stable. Means faster to get to 50.

Loosing and apending gold from the free re-rolls might give you a good stable but will slow you down in the economy.

I'd rather win early than to keep free rerolling

First win with the new patch. Got three Bounties on the initial round and three star Bounty by round 13 and decided to double down on Scrappy Inventors. Got insanely lucky on the last couple of rounds with the disrupters. The DK was just there because I couldn't afford any other units. Bounty with the item that keeps him alive for 4 seconds after death was crazy good in the mid game.

My quests are always heal and magic damage

Lox are the only units that can do that in two match or less.

Got lucky with 3 Helms lol

End game was a nail biter due to that 9 assassin guy and the knights with 2 aegises.

My best comeback yet.

Damn Desperate Measures coming in for the clutch.

He lost 3 straight rounds after this:

Game is hard



Knights didn't work out in the end. Ended up with Scrappy/Inventors and got 3 Star Tinker/Clock/Timber backed by 3 star Maiden. Really like how the game currently works. (or maybe I just got better)

Sometimes you are happy if you at least make it to fourth place but then you get a few lucky rolls and items and everything falls into place.

any

just now I was with 5 bloodbound units on the board, and they just got bigger did almost no damage e poped like a baloon.
Bloodbound are one of the worst Alliances. You need a very specific lineup to do that properly.

Try something along the lines of warriors/brawny, elusive/hunter, savage/anything or troll/anything

I tried every thing, this been happening since the previous big update, sometimes | can brute force my way to second place with a bunch of stuns and silences.

I've been watching this guy streaming and learning a lot from the game, apparently he's one of the top 10 in the world ranking? And he explains really well, I encorauge those that are starting and want to learn the game to check his streams and reddit/yt guides.

Get two Big-Time Contracts followed by three luna's in a single roll to start a game. Sometimes the build just chooses you...

P4wnyhof just did Warlock and two contracts, one on Arc Warden and the other on lvl 3 Beast Master. Every Arc Warden clone that died boosted the Beast Master so much that he kept one shotting everything.

It was the funniest thing I've seen so far in this game.

Ended up actually being an insanely close game. Came down to 3hp vs 6 hp and I nearly got fucked by troll alliance. Got lucky with a second 2 star DK that saved it for me.

Just installed this game, been getting into TFT over the past few days so I'm gonna try out Underlords as well. Which one do you guys consider to be the 'better' one atm?

I've only watched TFT, but I find Underlords the better balance of simple but kind of deep. Where I find TFT kind of too convoluted or complicated for it's own good. But I think some people prefer that coming from DAC.

OK, haven't touched the game since the patch due to Evo, I come back, and I don't understand anything. Best I've done is 4th place.
Winning the first 10 matches for cheap rerolls and hope for early 3 stars is the main focus I take it? TerrorBlade is back to being broken?

Mages right now are high risk, high reward.

Assembling them is hard given the abundance of Assassins. But when you get them to 6 with a tank, its amazing.

Another comeback from 8th place to 1st. Tide** is required though.



My last game only ended up 3rd place, would have been another comeback as well.

ok, so quick first impression after 1 game...this UI is a complete mess coming from TFT.
Actually shocked to see that. Just from watching TFT I always thought the UI and overall presentation was overly messy and busy.

Yeah, I've found them stressful as hell. I have a harder time holding on to money when I start getting my ass kicked in mid-game.

I play both games and the tft ui is so bad, it's not even close
Really?

I like how in TFT I can see everything inmediately. I see my new set of heroes I can purchase, the map, the synergies that I have, etc. I've noticed that with Underlords it's all hidden away behind menus. Why does the hero menu take so much space, an why do I need to keep pressing buttons in order for it to show up? It's small things like that which bother me. Another example would be the way I can see what the next rounds will be. Of course, after playing a bunch of matches on Underlords you'll probably know that at round X there will be loot, but I like how it shows me in TFT so I can always see how many rounds are left. Another example would be the way the game tells me how much gold I've made. Why can I only see it after a round? With TFT I can just hover over my gold and it'll inmediately tell me how much i'll be making.

I do like that after every loot round you get to pick an item/passive. Although something can be said of the circle that occurs in TFT where you get a chance to take the item someone else might desperately needs.

It kinda feels like the entire UI on PC is meant for a tablet or something. Although they might seem like small things, the make the experience much smoother imo.

It's obviously harder to judge we've played Autochess for hundreds of hours
For me Underlords for dozens of hours, and TFT for a few hours.
So bias is in effect, but the original is Autochess and Valve/Riot are just trying to copy that.
