This thread is to provide early insights and discussion on Friendly Matches being TESTED in beta.
Don’t get too attached
Details from Beta, especially brand-new Beta content, don’t tend to be very reliable for actual release.
It’s incredibly common that features are changed during Beta testing, or sometimes even after testing but before release. That is, after all, the purpose of Beta testing.
So I wouldn’t get too attached to any of this — it’s not unheard of for entire portions of features to be removed or reworked, or for radical changes to functionality to be made.
This is an often requested feature to be added to the game.
The master request thread & previous discussions can be found here:
Practice Battles or Raids Against Teammates in Alliance [MASTER]
Only limit to this feature is that it MUST be against CURRENT alliance members. They can be online or offline with any type of defence team set.
Just like a tournament battle or raid battle.
Not much more to say then that… The chosen ally members defence is there, you fight it. The end.
You may challenge both online and offline enemies.
Really simple to access. Simply:
Go to Alliance Menu
On the Member tab (default)
Tap one of your allies
On their player profile card which shows their defence team and stuff, there is a small blue button which says “BATTLE”.
Hitting the “BATTLE” button beings up a screen similar to the normal raid screen. You then pick your team and away you go.
Alternatively, you can tap their icon from the Alliance or Global Chat, which also brings up their player profile. Like above, there is the “BATTLE” button. This method ONLY works for alliance members.
In beta V35.1, there is a total of 5 “Friendly Match Energy”. Visually they are the same as all other energy icons in game but in a light teal colour.
You can only see the energy quantity when you go to start a Friendly Battle (see above).
Refills / Regeneration
Friendly Match Energy refills automatically back to 5/5 once per day.
There is currently no interface showing a countdown timer to the refill time of the “Friendly Match Energy”. It exists, just no countdown timer shown.
You may purchase a full refill in the Shop (on Resources Tab) for 100 gems (same as raid or world energy refills). Currently, it is limited to 1x refill purchase per day.
There are currently no “Friendly Energy Flasks”.
Unlike raids, raid tournaments etc… There is currently no interface / popup or information showing your attack / defending history in Friendly Battles.
A “system” message is sent to the alliance chat notifying of a friendly Battle and the outcome… Which is actually quite spammish and annoying…
The only notice / way of sharing is if you use a screen recorder & share it with your alliance member via an external app.
