Got my first legit win - going to try and embed the win photo. Got some semi decent luck early on, and was trying to transition from my random setup, to a hunter alliance bolstered with some meat from juggernaut...

Was having trouble with some assasins at the end - they had 6 if not 9 - and were critting all over the place. I tried spacing my units out a bit and that seemed to suck the assassins into little pockets so they couldn't gang up on me.

Cant wait for the battlepass. They really need something beyond a ladder to grind for. TFT is doing great work in that aspect.

I was one away from 3* templar assassin too! The game ended too soon! Assassins are so good and no one ever goes them. I don't understand. They're so much fun and because no one goes them you can easily get some 3*. And Retaliate continues to be insane with Slarder and the other Scaled units. Everything hitting Slarder at the start and taking 80 damage a second is just insane. And he's defensive enough where he'll survive a bit too.

This match pushed me up to Boss V. Hopefully I can join the pros at Big Boss rank soon.

Just had this beauty of a game.



Final board:



Disruptor got a ton of bonus HP. Arc Warden with the refresher is insane. I wanted the level 3 so bad to see it just fill the whole screen

Wish I had a radiance for that level 3 bat. Would have been doing some major damage.

If you get lucky and got the Brawny passive with Axe/Beastmaster to start, they'll rack up kills thus gaining tons of hp. It sucks if you get brawny stuff mid game as they can't get kills much often than early game though.

Got like a 5k hp 2 star Beastmaster yesterday.

Got the troll and demon item, turns out they wreck. Went into the final two with less than 30 health to my opponent's 80+. Picked up Vicious Intent and Desperate Measures and won with 3 health left. Also got promoted to Boss.

roughly 20 rounds at 4hp and then won. Get fucked everyone else (this is on top of me fucking up and picking up an eidolon item)

In a game right now, I have lvl 2 crystal maiden and lvl 2 arc warden with Big Time Contract. Kinda gross.

Everyone was level 9 and 10, and I was holding on there for a good fucking while at Leve 7.. Lose streak nerf and the RNG handing me the pieces i needed and especially the expensive ones meant that the gold I was earning was always scarce, which undid me in the end. In any case, I said I was gonna do it and I am gonna continue until I can get 1st place. Brawly/Warlock/Warrior/Demon and whatever else you can fit will become the next big strat, I guarantee it. I mean look at this dmg total, and I'm not even first. AND I did this without the Brawly and Warlock Global Items, otherwise shit would have been OP.

4 warlocks,3 warriors + dusa is busted right now, haven't lost a single game so far with it, its hilarious seeing a unit go from 0 health to full after 1 warlock casts a spell

After the update I've experiencing crashes on both mobile and pc. :|

I hope they can fix it

Just played my next game and got back to back wins - power start early and then just kept managing econ versus upgrades. I was generally lower level than everyone else the whole game, but higher quality units. Pus i got pocket sand ;-)

I envy you guys can pull an Assassin. I never had success on it.

My only win today. Tinker doing work but it was a hard game. From 6th to 1st. What a weird game, enemies comp and positions are wildly different so positioning my mages are abit tricky. 70% of the game I had 1 warlock sacrifice though for the bonus.

Did Trolls/Knights/Dragons get nerfed? I used to never lose with that strat and while I'm still doing well, I haven't pulled a win since the patch

So I'm not sold on the Warlock alliance buff, but the Warlock unit now is really strong. Overall this patch has not been kind to me, experimentation + bad rng.

Because they lose late game usually

Summon teams are so fun.


He was in first place. If only I had that one global item to double the dmg.

The experience on iOS right now is truly awful. Long queues and extreme rank variance when the game finally puts people in a match.

I realize this is Valve’s first time dealing with Apple’s update process, but wow.
Yeah it’s a bummer because it’ll probably be the same situation when the battlepass comes out next week.

That's not my experience at all at Boss V. Usually I lose the early game because you need to get 6 units for 3 warriors + 3 assassins. Late game you just snowball into your Slark 3 or QoP 3. I lose because I take too much damage early on trying to hold off. Chalk it up to differing playstyles.

Yeah the new patch made summoning teams a lot of fun. I didn't quite reach those numbers but I had Tooth and Claw, Summoning Stone, Veno 3, and refresher orb on Lone Druid 3. Those Lone Druid Bears hit really hard. Summoning teams seem to be in a much better spot now that Lycan's wolves are fixed and Veno is significantly better.

Second place in this one - the other person repositioned and wiped the floor with me...I also spent approximately 80-90 gold re-rolling to try and get my pudge to level 3....was one pudge away for ages :-(

Check out the damage though - 545k feels pretty significant!? Was using strange bedfellows and the deomon hunter at level 3. It could one-shot most things, including level 3's, provided it stayed alive long enough.

lol so an iOS dev on Reddit said that Apple only releases app updates on Thursdays so we might not get an iOS Underlords update until next week at which point the battlepass is supposed to come out.

Once it is down to a few players, you can position yourself to beat assassins. Also, when I say assassins, I mean more than 3.
