We’ve written the below guide to help you work out what sort of PVP team, and which heroes are strongest to help you win your team battles. Whilst the game is very new, concepts will constantly evolve as people work out what combinations work best together.
The most important thing to remember right now when building for team battles in Tower Keepers is that at tower level 30, you will need 3 teams of 4 heroes. So be prepared by not pouring all of your resources into just 4 heroes, as you will need to win at least 2 rounds to win the match!
It’s easy to get overwhelmed when trying to put together 3 teams of 4 heroes to get those much needed wins. Right now there are 2 archetypes that are dominating the PVP leader-boards that we have seen.
Burst or Rush Teams
These can range from all an all out offense lineup, to a 3 offence, 1 defense lineup (most popular).
Here’s a couple of examples of a Burst/Rush team (ignore the hero levels and stars):
(1 Defense, 3 Offense) (All Out Offense)
Defensive or “Stall” Teams
These teams are about out lasting teams without a healer. Your goal is to just chip away at the opposing team, whilst easily keeping up all your heroes. The key is having 2 tanky heroes, that can still do a bit of damage. I wouldn’t attempt this lineup without a decent Blackguard, as he fills this role perfectly.
(Tanky Team 1) (Tanky Team 2)
As you level up all your additional heroes, you will start to get synergies available to your team lineups. One such that is being used to great power at the top ranks of pvp is the “Stun Team” which focuses on heroes that dish out stuns and heroes that do extra damage to stunned heroes.
(Specialized “Stun Team”)
The key to making this type of lineup (and the fighter could easily be interchanged with the Warmaster, or others) is to successfully time your abilities to hit opposing heroes when they are stunned for the extra damage, or to lineup your blackguards soul ability which stuns just before your Thief and Blackguard use their abilities.
A balanced team usually consists of a healer, a tank and 2 dps. The most popular tank for this combination is the Warmaster, with his ability to make up for the lesser defense, and lesser offence of this type of lineup.
We hope this has given you some ideas to take into your PVP team battles. The game is young, and these strategies are constantly evolving in such a young PVP meta. Think we got it wrong? Or maybe we helped? Please let us know in the comments so we can keep improving!
