Costume Changing Bug - Class Trials Team affects War Defence Team

As I understand it this shouldn’t happen anymore per the announcement & changes made to costumes in V28 (March 2020).

However while doing the class trials I changed Sartana from “costume” version to “regular” version (Fighter -> Wizard) in order to participate in the Trials of Mysticism.

There was no “warning” dialogue when I went to change the costume version as Sartana isn’t currently part of any of my teams, except on my war defence team.

In the PREVIOUS war, Sartana was in costume form. I am 100% certain of it.

THIS war however, Sartana is in WIZARD form… and I am also certain that I never once went and changed the setup…

What I THINK happened was that changing the costume for the class trials while the war defence team wasn’t locked resulted in Sartana being changed in my War Defence Team.

Guv are you saying Sartana changed after the war started? Or before?

I’m pretty sure costumes aren’t locked until the war starts.

Which is a pet peeve of mine. I wish we could set defenses (war, tower and tourney) and forget them.

Was before I believe. It’s locked on my war defence now and I can switch her back and forth now.

It’s just changed on my war defence and I’m pretty confident I didn’t change it.

Only time the costume gets changed off “fighter” version is fr class trials.

Defenses are currently still locked from mid-week war, until, I think, it says “prepare your defenses”. Then I think costumes will revert to whatever is shown in the roster

I think when war begins and the defense is locked again, that costumes are locked in whatever mode they are in your roster at that time. At least that’s how it seems to work for tourneys. This has burned me in the past, set up tourney defense early in the day but change a costume later to do something else and forget to change it back before tourney begins

I have tested this before:
If you change the costume form of a hero which is on the war defense team after the war starts but before the next starts the the modified costume version will be in you war defense team.

The same is true for raid tournament defense teams too.

Earlier before your mentioned change you could not change the custome of heroes on defense team during wars and tournaments.
SG fixed that so that they are not changing at the war and tournament defense team if you change it in your roster.

Yeah, and that’s what I’m saying… If it’s enabled so that changing during war doesn’t affect war defence, why does it change during matchmaking/ preparation phase?

Ok remembered this and tested it again. 100% changes the war defence team during matchmaking/ preparation phase…

I agree, if they’re locking the costumes for war teams then you should only be able to change the costumes for that war team at the war team setup screen during preparation phase.

I will need to keep my eye on this since I am also using C.Sartana on my war teams.

Yeah, it’s especially annoying for the Weekday Class Trials & war overlap…

  • Class trials run from Wednesday 1700 to Thursday 1700 (my time).

  • War Battle phase starts at Wednesday 1800…

Meaning that there is a 1hr overlap/ window where if you change the costume to USE in the class trial, you have until 1800 to change it back… otherwise its locked in the wrong format…

This is essentially what happened to me & how I found the issue… I changed the class of sartana to use wizard in the mid-week class trials, right at the start of the class trials (like I usually do). HOWEVER I didn’t realise it changed my war defence team in that 1hour window, & hence my Sartana was locked for the duration of that war in the wrong version…

And that is likely exactly what I am going to do myself …

I believe this is working as intended.

If you start a thread under Ideas to allow us to lock in costumes for different areas of the game I would vote for it.
