🧪 Early Information on New "Challenge Festival" Challenge Event [Part of The Beta Beat V44]

NOTE: Please do not, under any circumstances, share IMAGES OR VIDEOS from Beta in this or any public Forum thread. Violations can cause players to lose their Beta accounts, or threads to be closed down.

This thread is to provide early insights and discussion on the new ""Challange Festival Challange Event.


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.


New Heroes and costumes

A new event = new heroes…

For more information on see here:

All heroes are available in the portal from the old challange events:

  • Pirates of Corellia
  • Guardians of Teltoc
  • Knights of Avalon
  • Fables of Grimforest
  • Riddles of Wonderland

:superhero: Challange Festival Challange Event

  • All non event heroes receive a curse if they are used in the event:

This includes:

  • -25% attack
  • -25% defense
  • -25% health
  • -25% received mana

:dizzy: Special Gameplay

The event stages are consist of heroes from each old challange event, and each of them has got a special effect:

  • Pirates of Corellia
    • Enemies steal 10% Mana from all heroes every 3 turns.
    • Enemies steal 5% HP from all heroes every 3 turns.
  • Guardians of Teltoc
    • Power of tiles of a random element is weakened with -50% attack every 3 turns.
  • Knights of Avalon
    • All direct damage from Special Skills is reduced by -20%.
    • All healing is reduced by -20%.
  • Fables of Grimforest
    • Heroes get grim forest fiends every 3 turns. The Fiend has 5% HP.
  • Riddles of Wonderland
    • The element of all Heroes changes to a different element every 3 turns.
    • Element rotation: Holy → Dark → Fire → Nature → Ice —> Holy …

Upon these effects each stage this effect (similarly as 16+ floors in Impossible questline in Tower events)

  • Elemental Resistance
    • Having multiple Heroes of the same element in your Team reduces the damage that enemies take from that element (-10% of each Hero of the same element)

Summoning odds are the thing most worth talking about. No season 1 heroes! People will hate those trainers though. 25.5% chance at an epic event hero is a huge boost. 5.7% normally means your odds of getting the individual four star hero you were looking for (say Jackal) are roughly the same as usual, but you’re much more likely to get something else good if you miss that one hero.

Interesting that 10 heroes have costumes and only three are featured. Small odds for those non featured costumes.

10 stages is a fan favorite we’ve seen.

I assume SG has not indicated how often this event will be?

The curse is going to make this event interesting. I’m not sure event only heroes will be optimal, but it should change our thoughts. I’ll be curious if Beta testers think there is a different strategy than usual.

The special gameplay seems like a way to make this harder. It’s interesting. I get the feeling many will feel this is more annoying than anything.
Should I make a master thread for “Not a Bug - Guardians special effect is random - Master Randomness conspiracy”?

Mana and hp steal sounds rough, but workable, especially if you finish the bosses in one or two waves.
Element weakening shields adds randomness that could turn a good run into a bad one. If you play mono and finish quickly it shouldn’t impact you too often.
Knights of avalon I can easily live with
Fables of Grimforest fiend won’t matter as long as it’s damage only.
Riddles changing elements of hero is interesting. If it’s random, it makes team set up harder. If they all move like Guardian Chameleon or Starfall Circus it’s a bit easier.

Elemental resistance looks to make mono less of a thing. From what I saw of top performers in ninja tower it looked like mono or at least 3 of one hero was still pretty optimal.

Hope those featured heroes stay. LotL is my most desired Avalon hero, and now her costume boosts HP instead, making her truly annoying even outside VF wars. I also have Guardian Kong +20, so I wouldn’t mind to upgrade him to MitsuKong. BK’s alt is meh but I don’t have BK, so …

I don’t mind trainers, as they don’t eat (thus far) from 5* percentages. For those not having 4* though, 4* trainer will be annoying.

I would much, much, much rather get a trainer hero than a season 1 hero. They’re food anyway, might as well make it the food worth the most.

Getting rid of Season 1 heros is just massive here. It’s a seismic shift in the summoning within this game from the last 4 years. This cannot be understated.

26 Likes

1 million percent agree. I never thought I’d see the day. As FTP, I just always want something new to work on, even if it isn’t a particularly good hero. This portal is almost guaranteed to give me new projects, maybe several. I’m unreasonably excited about it.

14 Likes

You and me both. Although Panther would probably be the one I’d like most, all three of the listed heroes would be great additions to my roster. I don’t have LotL or BK, but my G. Kong is on the rise and will go to +20 immediately upon maxing. I’m worried about his def holding up, so anything that would boost that would be welcome. I’m seriously thinking about limit breaking him when the time comes. A costume bonus would be awesome enough, but MitsuKong (as you say) could be a lot of fun to play around with, too.

Clearly, all event Epic heroes will be collection priority by all summoners with 25% odds = Summoning fest for SG !

I would be happy with a 2nd Hansel & new 3*s…

Good luck !

Sorry, I have used the Clash of Knights as a template. So there maybe some parts have the Alliance Quest in the text.
I have fixed the Rules part.
I will sort out the rest tomorrow when I will add more details.

This event is harder than any challenge events .
So it takes more time to collect data

will we get LB orbs as reward?

Ok whoa… I didn’t see the new heroes…
Thanks @PlayForFun
And…
Sorry… so terribly sorry @Shohoku79

Before you had:

And now you have 6.1% chance to get Bauchan.

You can take consolation in that those missing a legendary have horrific odds. But umm yeah, still…
Good luck! :crossed_fingers:

As 5 new heroes are added to the portal now we have 10 rare heroes.
So the chance to get a special rare hero is less, 6.1%.

I hate to say this, but SG should get rid of the Epic Trainer heroes and make them all rare trainer heroes. There’s been several complaints of people hitting the 1% odds and feel robbed. I know removing them would be worse for all of us (epic trainer > rare trainer), but it would save some frustration from the community.

The portal is already shaping up to be one of the best, so making the epic trainers 1% worse than other portals should not lead to any general complaints (but of course it will).

Alternatively they could get rid of trainers in general and up the odds of three star heroes. Not necessarily ideal for everyone, but anyone chasing a three star hero would prefer this.

I’m confused, why did the community take a vote if all the challenge events would be included? I thought we were voting to have teltoc as the challenge event🧐

Voting was for November’s event

Challenge Festival is scheduled for December

I agree, the first 2 passes will be great for everyone. Extra passes for the F2P. Definitely great for new players.

I’ve already got over 20 max’d rare’s permanently collecting dust. Depending on this portal, I suppose it will be time to finally eat them.

After that,
It will become the Dupe Portal
Where people chase LOTL for 0.068%

It’s almost nefarious that they finally upped the rare hero ratio.

And unquestionably nefarious that costumes will filter in… :face_vomiting:

But what concerns me more than anything… what is replacing these old events? Will those new portals make this one look like a TC? I wonder… :disappointed:
