Support us by Donating. Even a little matters. There is no motivation without remuneration.

Alliance War needs annoying champs to increase the chance to get more kills, but do remember that you should not place one particular champ on many nodes, else your opponent may win because of the increased diversity point. So take care of diversity if you really care about winning.
Note About Defender Tactics: Defender Tactics have a very important role in winning if you are Tier 1 to Tier 5 ally. Learn about them and the champions that can benefit from Defender Tactics.

I am open to any kind of feedback you guys have. If I missed a defender that works great on any specific node, please let me know by comment.

Note: There are many champions that I have not mentioned. All the champions I didn’t mention are not good defenders, but let me know if I missed any good ones. If you are trying to maintain diversity, feel free to use them after you have covered all defenders mentioned in the list.
