I tried playing on the easiest difficulty on this event but I’m unable to beat the trio from the last fight. I’ve four leveled 3* heroes and one 2* still the last battle is impossible. I guess paying with gems will get me through and that is the point of these events. They are made too hard, so people must spend real money to win.
I agree. They should set something up that bans all 4 and 5 star heroes. Oh, wait…
Then you’re just going to deal with alt accounts and still get crushed. Why is it so important for you that you place highly even though you just started and don’t yet know how to play? Do you understand what people are doing to win these tournaments? I’ve been playing for 2 years and want nothing to do with competing in events.
I think what you’re describing is known as ‘season 1; provinces 1-8’.
Nearly 75 levels set up to challenge the brand new player. And it’s persistent too, so no waiting around for that annoying P2P roadblock of “time” to pass before you can start.
And every level offers rewards! And possible new recruits!!! (Keep those fingers crossed and a shiny new Aife may find her way to you. Score!)
And should the new player succeed in conquering province 8, area 7… they unlock access to a special area that advanced players and new players alike will benefit from forever!
Hurry, the special fun of 8-7 farming awaits the intrepid!
I finished my first rare challenge without maxed 3* hero (exactly at 1 month playing time). I’m F2P, so I don’t buy gems.
Can you give your 3* roster detail? Many in this forums are experienced players, they can help you design the team to complete the event, each stage might need different heroes.
How many 3* red heroes do you have and at what level they are? Do you have Hawkmoon? Do you have Gunnar/Kailani? Can you create Axe Attack from your forge?
Every person here ( except @Garanwyn, who used arcane and mystical arts called Mathematics and Probability ) has been in your situation.
The Devs even renamed the tiers to Rare, Epic and Legendary instead of Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced because your frustration is VERY common on the forums and the old tier names made it worse ( like salt in a wound ).
This is a business. They need activities for all types of players and Challenge events are similar to eBay actions ( see notes ). Just like eBay, the more desirable the item, the less chance a 14 year old with a new job will win and the better chance Bill Gates or Warren Buffet will win. Your proposed change would go against the Challenge event organizer/ Devs best interest ( see notes ).
You can ask for activities that are specifically designed so only new players can take place in ( perhaps a co-op quest that pairs a new player with an older player ) or better yet give rewards the older players do not need and do not want ( 2* / 3* heroes? ), but the challenge events will always rely on skills, heroes and battle items a newish player does not have.
On the positive side, Devs added better completion rewards so I started completing them. Before emblems I usually took my free world energy flask ( Atlantis Rising here I come ) and did not run most Challenge events.

How do events earn money
(What’s up with the challenge event brackets and rewards? - #14 by Gryphonknight)
Improved completion rewards
([Discussion] If you skipped Challenge events, did the addition of emblems to tier completion rewards change your mind)
M’y first post.
Started this game 2-3 month ago, Just taking monthly vip
Finally i finish rare. Was 16000 in the first Day, now im 234000 Just 1 Day after…
epic is still impossible, boss are too strong for the moment, and m’y 4* are only rank3 need item for Last rank
If you can finish évent do it but forgot rank, its for p2w player (Will you be able to have 5 nahamage lvl 30??? Never without pay, so no need to run)
If you cant, do Just first stage and stop it.
Dont use gems or things like this. Dev love gem and whale. Same in all game with big rng. No offence we know where we go
With five leveled 3* heroes, I finished the easiest difficulty with next to no items. I’m not 100% sure, but I think just an arrow attack to blind and a couple of mana potions to get my heals off. The Rare level is definitely possible, you just need to grow a little bit more. (It helps to have a choice of leveled 3* heroes, of course – if you’re stuck using Prisca, Renfield, Dawa, Graymane and Carver, it’s obviously going to go poorly…)
LOL oh, wait… You are right oh, wait…I am NOT saying the 3* raid tournament DUUUHHHHH.
I am saying something for the weak players ONLY. Yes the weak ONLY, not a level 60 player that can field maxed out 3*s with full array of emblems and 3/15 troops. NO I said a player that can NOT field any team of 4200 tp. I am saying a player that can MAX field a team of lets say 2100 tp. Let them win stuff you can get by farming S1-8. That way they can WIN something, make it FUN for them. In turn should make them want to get batter and try BIGGER challenges. I think it would help the weaker teams enjoy more.
Once again - that’s what the first part of the world map is for.
Now if that happened Deckard Cain, wouldn’t have a story to tell.
Ps I do hope it was a whirlwind barb!!!
@ OP - as you progress you can level your heroes and get stronger and do the more difficult missions…
Even I was just like you and tried w my 2400 TP team for Darts and Tabards and failed miserably…but that was then
People wanna help you, but before you start giving advices and requesting answers you need to read more than the 2hours you have now and visit more than the 26 topics.
I suggest reading some topics from here Master List of E&P Links & Player Guides
and afterwards ask away what will be still unclear to you.
I dont know how old are you, but as it is in school, in order to make an resume of a book you need to read it first and try to understand it.
I, for one, I am willing to help you as long as I see that you are willing to listen to the more experienced out here that give you advices.
p.s. ofcourse not all have patience, not all give advices, not all treat you as a new player.
so have patience and dont be discouraged. you’ll see that the way this game is designed is to make you have more time-fun than most of the other games of this type.
“see” you in a couple of weeks
I totally agree! I quit the game a while back out of frustration and recent came back. I’m a mid-tier player. My best team at the moment is about 3900. I have 30 heroes over 70, but only 3 going on 80…I can’t get the mats! I play everyday, at do all the quests, I fight in every war, battle every Titan, etc. I’ve spent way too much money and gain nothing. This game rewards the very top tier players, and those of us that have started later have no possibility of catching up. HUGE issue, imo. What to the rest of you feel?
Speaking of Diablo (awesome game btw), I had a lvl 18 chargedin that could kill lvl 80 characters in duels. My WhirlWind barbarian with 2 BotD kicked ■■■ too. Man the memories
Back to topic, I partly agree with OP. I mean, I understand where his frustration comes from. When I started playing this game everything in it was slow and tedious. Long waits to upgrade buildings, not enough world energy to play S1 maps, not enough heroes… I started playing during Christmas event and I was so frustrated that I couldn’t finish a single mission that I almost drop the game.
This game needs events for new players too. Having to wait 3-4 months to be able to finish rare tier for the first time is crazy. Not everybody knows how to beat events with the heroes RNG gives them. And not everybody waits for that long tbh.
A simple solution would have been creating raid tournaments and events tiers for 1* and 2* heroes. Players could use the first 20 emblems the game gives for free after maxing a few heroes. People would be competing in events almost right away. But SG staff forgot emblems were supposed to upgrade low level heroes too and missed a golden chance to improve the game for beginners. Too bad.
Oh well, not every game can be as good as Diablo I guess, lol.
There are 1* and 2* tournament in beta but maybe they didn’t make it to the final cut. What shall I do with my 10 maxed 2*?
I only got 5 maxed 1* and 2* so I guess you’d have the edge in those tournaments
But I don’t have leveled 1*… I’m beaten at 1* tourney
Huh? Rare is basically farming. If you actually want to compete you’re going to drop $$$ into this game. And we’re limited to 3* heroes and 2* battle items, just like you are.
In other words…lighten up Francis!
How are ppl supposed to compete in a 3* tournament when they can’t get mats. Don’t you know how hard is it to get tall boots?
It’s impossible to get tall boots, I mean I would actually have to play the map and go farm, that’s just sounds impossible
By trying to be sarcastic you’re missing the point. To get into the top 3000th and win a simple epic troop token in any rare event you need at least a few world energy flasks, plenty of axes and arrows, and a deep bench of 3* heroes. Farming 8-7 wont get you anywhere in events. Boots? Ridiculous…
Is it worth the effort to be competitive in events? I’d say no but there aren’t many other options to get mats for 4* heroes.
