So as I've watched/looked at top pvp formations in game and in this forum, I can't make any sense of them. I don't understand what makes them more successful then the formations taught early on. Here's my main points of confusion:

-Archers and Ninjas - I can't tell how they're defending against knights or troll cyborgs, or what lets them output so much damage
-Knights and Lava dragons - They're just randomly put in large rows in the middle/back of a formation. Why?
-Skeleton mages and Wolf riders - Why are they put in a formation that largely uses other ranged units?
-Hero positions - Heroes seem to be scattered randomly. What exactly does this accomplish?

I am a bit happy I figured out the point of shaman/priest rows - to deal with the rampant aoe damage that a hero survives, but they don't. The rest of the stuff is confusing.

Also if someone could explain what the words "tech" and "reputation" means, and the reason these want to be high, I would appreciate that. I seem to be lacking on my terminology.

Finally, what actually makes a "good" formation? I'm not certain how to measure success.

- Offensive units have received tons of buffs in the past years, like realness force and also the "smart rune" which makes any offensive unit stronger.
- There are the main tanky units. High armor high hp, they are used to tank shots and protect your heroes
- Because of their high atk range,they can be mixed with ninjas or mages for example whose attack range is only 4
- Hero position is crucial in fights. It can determine whether 1 formation counters another.
- Tech stands for technology, which can be upgraded from the upgrade center. Reputation is a value which you can increase in many ways (cell attacks,battlefield daili reward, can be given for free during events). The more reputation you have, the stronger your troops will be attack and hp wise. You can check it by clicking on your castle, you will see current reputation level and how much points you need till next level
- A good formation: i would describe it as a formation with the fewest weak points/counters possible

Ares-Fran covered it really well.  I don't think I need to add anything.  Is there anything confusing about the answer or do you need further explanation?

Ok, thank you very much. This has been a great help. I do have one last question I forgot to ask: What is the weird yellow light aura on some units in high levels battles like in championship? I can't seem to find the effect listed.

Would you be a little more specific?  Some quick thoughts could be the healing effect from pets or possibly the evolved power activating.

Rip, I can't upload an image. So what I'm looking at is the final battle in the last championship in Troy, where both sides have a few front rows of ninjas that have a yellow light surrounding the unit. It goes through a visual cycle of growing and shrinking in size and intensity.

My guess is this is the troop ability activating, either that or it is a tech activation visual, for example force usually shows as a purple color.  When skeleton mages activates their ability is also purple.  I wish I could see what you were talking about.  I feel like I haven't been much help.  If you can't load an image here you could try to load it to imgur.com and post the link.

I think you are talking about magic bond. At lvl 45 you unlock a building which can make your units even more powerful. Ninjas are usually upgraded with attack as magic bond, and its effect is the yellow light you see

Ok I think that answered my question. Thank you! I'm only at level 34, so I'll see it in 8 more levels.

Start a new thread when you get there and we can help you prioritize your upgrades.  In the mean time upgrade your tech as soon as you can.  If you are a light spender I would encourage you to buy the package that gives you 680 mojo plus mojo for every day you login for a month and then use that mojo after the month is over to get at least 2 spar mines in your castle and fort.

See you in 8 levels!  :-)
