Building Your Teams

 
 

If you prepair yourself for battle, it can have a great influence on your results. Building your teams BEFORE entering the tournaments will allow you to properly balance your teams so that they are comperable. No one team is too much stronger or weaker than any other team. Keep in mind that attack damage and health are equally important. As they say, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. 

Spreadsheets

Using spreadsheets to catalogue your creatures stats is common practice among the most successful tournament players. Why? Because it serves as an extremely valuable tool when building and balancing your teams. It serves as a one stop quick & easy reference guide for all your dino stats. On your spreadsheet, include all your dino's as well as their current health, attack and ferocity stats. If you're using creatures that are not yet fully evolved, keep your spreadsheet up to date as you level up your creatures.

Determining Who Will Fight

Generally speaking, determine your top 9 creatures using ferocity as a guide. That being said, I would like to point out a perfect example of why ferocity isn't always the best representative of a dinos capabilities. Refering to the Jurassic Spreadsheet in the 9th spot is the Shunosaurus. However, looking at the 10th spot, we see Carnosaurus, who overall is the more logical creature to use. Its almost 700 stronger in attack and only 290 less health. For that reason, Carnotaurus would be used instead of Shunosaurus.

Assembling Your Teams

The strategy here is pretty simple. Using ferocity, determine what your top 9 dinos are then divide them into teams following the guide seen below. Note Strongest dino= 1 weakest dino= 9

Team 1: 3, 6, 7

Team 2: 2, 5, 8

Team 3: 1, 4, 9

This will provide you with 3 teams that are, for the most part, equal in their attack and health capabilities. 

Multiple Teams For Multiple Tournaments

If you have enough dinos, it is possible to play in more tournaments each day. This is for more seasoned players and will require 18 dinos that are tournament worthy. It is possible to only have 15 or 16 and buy back 2 or 3 dinos to reuse. However, your profit margin becomes narrow if you buy back too many dinos. Team selection is identical to the method outlined above, but you use your top 18 instead of your top 9.

 

Tournament 1

Team 1: 6, 12, 13

Team 2: 5, 11, 14

Team 3: 4, 10, 15

Tournament 2

Team 1: 3, 9, 16

Team 2: 2, 8, 17

Team 3: 1, 7, 18

 

In most cases this will provide you with 6 fairly balanced teams. To those who might be considering making their first attempt at playing 2 sets of teams for aquatic or glacial tournaments, be warned that you will often be at a disadvantage of anywhere from 200 to 600 ferocity, sometimes more. Winning is definitely possible, but good strategy is a must. 

Alternative Team Structure

The team structuring outlined in the examples on this page is pretty effective, but there are alternative team structures that are just as effective. Consider trying these other team configurations:

 

12, 6, 13                   18, 6, 7                    13, 12, 6                    6, 3, 7                   9, 3, 4                    7, 6, 3

11, 5, 14                   17, 5, 8                    14, 11, 5                    5, 2, 8                   8, 2, 5                    8, 5, 2

10, 4, 15                   16, 4, 9                    15, 10, 4                    4, 1, 9                   7, 1, 6                    9, 4, 1

9, 3, 16                     15, 3, 10                  16, 9, 3

8, 2, 17                     14, 2, 11                  17, 8, 2

7, 1, 18                     13, 1, 12                  18, 7, 1

Creating & Using Offset Teams

Depending on what your individual matchmaking results are, there may be a single round in the Jurassic, aquatic and/or glacier arena where the opponent bot uses only 1 or 2 creatures. If you listen close in the team selection screen, you can tell how many creatures your opponent is using. When they habitually use less than 3, you can reconfigure your teams so that you have a weak team and 2 strong teams. This will give a single team that is better scaled to the rounds where your opponent uses only 1 or 2 dinos and it will also give you a greater advantage in the rounds where your opponents use 3 creatures. A simple method of doing this is as follows:

Note: strongest dino = 1 weakest dino = 9 or 18

 

Team 1: 7, 8, 9

Team 2: 2, 4, 5

Team 3: 1, 3, 6

 

 --OR--

 

 Tournament 1

Team 1: 14, 16, 17

Team 2: 4, 8, 9

Team 3: 3, 7, 10

Tournament 2

Team 1: 13, 15, 18

Team 2: 2, 6, 11

Team 3: 1, 5, 12

 

By structuring your teams like this, you have strengthened 2 of your teams considerably. The sacrifice your 3rd team has made is irrelevant because that team still has plenty enough strength to defeat your opponents smaller 1 or 2 dino teams.

Advanced Team Building

If you want to take your team building to another level, the next step would be to balance your teams so that all your teams are nearly identical in their health and attack capabilities.

Step 1

Build your teams as outlined below

1 = strongest dino 9 (or 18) = weakest dino

 

Team 1: 3, 6, 7

Team 2: 2, 5, 8

Team 3: 1, 4, 9

 

--OR--

 

Tournament 1

Team 1: 6, 12, 13

Team 2: 5, 11, 14

Team 3: 4, 10, 15

Tournament 2

Team 1: 3, 9, 16

Team 2: 2, 8, 17

Team 3: 1, 7, 18

 

Write these teams down on paper, along with each creatures stats

Step1

Step 2

Step2

For each team, add all 3 creatures attack stats together and write that number down. Then do the same for the health and ferocity stats.

Step 3

Look at each of your teams total attack & total health stats and identify any imbalances between teams

Step3

Step 4

Step4

Make any changes to the teams that would result in a better balance of team attack and team health

Step 5

Recalculate the stats for each team

Step5

Step 6

Step6

Verify that your teams are now well balanced. If not, repeat step 4

Step 7

Go win some tournaments
