Hi guys, I am a fairly new player here, level 48.
I’m kinda frustrated with Gauntlet… and I would like some help to consistently clear Sectors 1-5.
How does it really work and why do the sectors keep on increasing power level each time Gauntlet resets? The power increases are completely disproportionate to my heroes’ level increases. I upgrade my heroes a bit between gauntlet runs, but gauntlet resets increase power much more than how I’ve upgraded my heroes. Not very fair?
I’m having trouble with Sector 1 which now starts off at 5600 power. It used to be 5300 power which I could just about deal with and clear right up to Sector 5, but now it’s just not possible because I don’t have enough guys to tackle Sector 1 (at 5600) then have enough to clear through 1-5.
Everytime I figure out a good combination that gets me past the first sector (leaving me with enough heroes to do the remaining sector), the damned thing increases power on me again after it resets.
What’s the best way to do this? I am thinking of:
(1) To level up ALL my heroes to, say, level 48? But if I do that then, will the first sector be level 48 as well? Has anyone figured out how the 1st Sector power (and subsequently) is calculated?
(2) Or should I make 5 teams of varying strengths, some level 48, some level 40, 30, etc, to ‘average down’ my hero strength so that Sector 1 power level will be manageable?
Very confused and frustrated player here and I would greatly appreciate some tips from the pros.
