Aphelios Saved Me in The First Game! HiveGC TFT Tournament
Hello to all of you, my dear people! Today I will share with you the first game of the TFT tournament we organized last night. First of all, I would like to thank everyone who made this tournament possible and especially our sponsors @ocd & @acidyo and @straw. They are very generous and good people. Many thanks also to everyone who participated in the tournament as a competitor or watched us. I had so much fun that I can't express it in words. We rock as the Hive Gaming community, folks!
You can watch the gameplay video here. There are also our speeches in the video. Ignore @sydechan's dirty talk XD
The universe of this game was the Placidium library. Although the majority chose another universe, @atobaba's wish came true. In this universe, you earn a scroll of wisdom in the middle game. This means you can have any trait you want. So we're going to see some crazy stuff!
At the beginning of the game @perceval came to my board and provoked me. They probably talked to their friends before the game to block me like that. Just kidding XD
Because I found a Shen in the early game, I was guaranteed to have a good early game. @oldfool was quite jealous of that, but sometimes luck favors you. That's why I sacrificed my gold and took a 2% risk. Even if I found an Aphelios instead, it wouldn't have been as good because the frontline is just as important as the backline.
For the second augment I chose bastion heart. Pandora's Items would have been a great choice for me if I had bad items but I already had good items and knew what to play so bastion heart is a good choice. You can hear me laughing during this because jokes were flying around. I'm very happy with the friendly atmosphere that we created amongst ourselves.
Thanks to Augment I activated 4 bastion buffs in the mid game and continued to have a good game thanks to my good frontline and average backline. I can even say I didn't lose any rounds haha. I tried to talk to @therealflaws while beating him but I forgot that he ran away under the pretext of listening to music :P
I didn't lose until the last augment choice and I needed to pick a good fighting augment to keep winning. Tons of Stats fits this description perfectly. It gives good stats to all my champions. Health, ability power, attack damage, everything.
I didn't lose a single round until stage 4-6 and I was having a great game until I ran into @oldfool who had an illegal board. At level 7 he had a 2 star K'sante and this is a one in a million chance. It doesn't get any better haha. And K'sante like a real boxer hit all my champions wall to wall and threw them off the map. Aphelios tried his best but I lost. I can say this ruined my economy which was great.
Although @perceval hasn't played the game for a long time, he made it to the top 4 in the first game because he played 1 composition I taught him perfectly. I must say he did very well because there were a lot of good players in the tournament.
Then I faced oldfool once more and his champion was even more frustrating than before. K'sante gave Blue Buff to his two stars and made him use this ability very often. Since I didn't have any items to prevent him from regenerating health, I couldn't kill him and my fears came true again. He threw my champions off the board one by one!
I then managed to beat @demotry who had another great game because I was so strong. The board I have is a one in a million board. 8 Bastions and 4 Targons at the same time, impossible under normal circumstances. Aphelios is the carrier of my composition and the best items are 2 Guinsoo's Rageblade and 1 Deathblade. I am very lucky to have these items and everything went perfectly. My friends think I am a good player, of course I am a good player but I have to admit I am lucky haha.
In the last battle Aphelios literally did everything he could and somehow I managed to kill @oldfool's scary 2 star K'sante, check it out! He did 20k damage. There are 3 star carriers that can't do that much damage. I think my lineup also helped me win this battle because K'sante couldn't take out all my champions that easily.
I'm not going to share my general opinion about the composition because I've already done that before. You can play this composition every game and you can reach high ranks. It's incredibly powerful, it's very hard to make it as epic as me, but even if it's not as much, it will work. Thank you very much to all the participants, I had a lot of fun, thanks a lot for reading, take care and have a great day!
