If you're new to Splinterlands like me and don't have enough NFT cards and have chosen the same summoner as your opponent, there is a possibility to team up with the same monsters as your opponent. Also, if it's a low mana battle, it will be more likely to have chosen the same monsters as your opponent. In such cases, if you can follow a good strategy and put your monsters in the right positions, your team can win the battle.
Before creating your team, I recommend that you examine the positions of the monsters in the opposing player's last 5 battles. If you determine which positions your opponent's monsters attack and build your team accordingly, you can be the winner.
In the video, I shared my 3 battles with you today. I recommend watching the video first.
Let's examine the first battle in the video. When I reviewed the opposing player's previous battles, the opposing player generally chose Summoner Zintar Mortalis, and the monsters in player's team were monsters attacking the last position monster.
I determined a different strategy according to player's team building strategy. I added monsters with more health and no attack ability to the last position. While the opposing team tried to destroy them, my team destroyed their attack ability monsters. Thanks to this, my team won the battle. Notice that the monsters in both teams are all the same. In short, this battle is proof that the position of monsters in the team is very important.
When we examine the 2nd battle in the video, you can see that there is a battle won with a similar strategy.
When we examine the 3rd battle in the video, it seems that the opposing player has examined my previous battles. The opposing player has formed player's team in the same way as my strategy. Once the position of the monsters was the same, the battle ended before it even started, and it ended in a draw.
Summoner and Monsters in the Video
Monsters with melee attack ability can become devastating against enemy monsters, but Zintar Mortalis reduces enemy monsters' melee attacks by -1, thus protecting your team against devastating attacks.
Haunted Spirit 2 has the melee attack ability and plays an effective role in winning the battle. Also, Haunted Spirit restores some of its health each round, so it cannot be easily destroyed.
Skeleton Assassin targets the last monster on the opposing team instead of the first monster.
Like Skeleton Assassin, Undead Badger targets the last monster on the opposing team rather than the first monster.
Undead Priest reduces the health of all enemy monsters by -1.
If I chose Summoner Zintar Mortalis, I usually recruit Haunted Spirit, Skeleton Assassin, Undead Badger, and Undead Priest. I think these monsters are quite effective in winning many battles. (I'm talking about playable cards for beginners only)
I earned an NFT card from my quest reward today. The Pelacor Mercenary is a monster that I will use with the Earth Summoner and that I think will be very effective in battles.
