🧪 The Beta Beat (V40) – Slayers of Fell Shadows Event + Heroes, Raid Attacking Team Information -- Sharing the Big Picture on What's Going on in Beta

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.

:thinking: What’s this all about?

Click Here for Details About This Thread's Intention & Format

Often players on the Forum wonder about what’s going on in Beta.

If you’re a regular reader of the Forum, then you’ll find that there’s actually abundant conversation about what’s going on in Beta at any given time.

And that’s actually allowed!

What’s restricted is images and videos — but discussion is ok:

The challenge is that information is often scattered around the Forum. I’ve created The Beta Beat to help centralize it for those who are interested.

The Beta Beat is a series of threads which are evolving as I get feedback on what’s helpful to players.

My main focus is giving some high-level guidance of what’s going on in current testing, so players outside of Beta can be better informed.

Like Beta itself, this thread is experimental and will evolve based on your feedback.

Information from Beta is frankly often mostly useless, so 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 heroes and 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 information from Beta — it’s not unheard of for entire portions of hero skills to be removed or reworked, or for radical changes to hero stats to be made, or for large chunks of new functionality to be completely changed.

Often Incomplete Information Circulates

Many of us have seen screenshots and other information shared on LINE, Discord, Facebook, and other groups — often without context or explanation.

These can lead to confusion and misunderstanding.

Often, early Beta information — the least reliable or useful — is circulated…and then updated information is missed.

I’m hoping centralizing some high-level information on the Forum may help to reduce this as well.

What’s Going on in Beta Right Now

IMPORTANT: I wouldn’t get too attached to any information from Beta — it’s not unheard of for entire portions of heroes or functionality to be removed, reworked, or radically changed beyond recognition.

Slayers of Fell Shadows

This is a new challenge event, like League of Villains or Starfall Circuswas.

Raid Attacking Team Information

Information will be available about which team attacked you and what team did you use attack an opponent;

I wrote more information about how it looks like here:

Other Beta Content

(These were tested in earlier Beta versions. These might come back to testing or not…)

Upcoming HotMs

Additional Season 4 Heroes

As was the case with Season 3, it appears that S4 legendary heroes are being “trickled” into the summon pool. V37 sees the testing of some additional S4 5* heroes.

🧪 Early Information on ROUND 2 of Season 4 Heroes [Part of The Beta Beat v37]

New Season 3 Hero: Salmon Loki

OG Salmon Loki became Bera. This is a reworking of the original hero / design with essentially the same specs, stats, family, class etc… Just with a new (terribly worded) special skill.

For information: 🧪 Early information on New Season 3 (Valhalla) Hero -- Salmon Loki (again)

:mage: Tower of Magic + Heroes

New event staff have stated that will be “similar” to the Ninja tower in gameplay and mechanics. It has NOT been added to beta yet for testing, only the heroes.

For more information see:

Beta Feature Tracking/ Forecasted Content

Staff have not yet released any insight into the future V40 Beta testing content.

:left_speech_bubble: Feedback?

I’d love to hear thoughts on whether this information and format is useful, and how you’d like to see information presented in the future. Any thoughts or ideas?

Please try to limit discussion in this thread mostly to the information sharing process and feedback on the thread, so we don’t end up with a jumbled discussion of a bunch of different heroes — use the threads linked above for each individual hero to discuss more.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

:exclamation: Beta Updates

This section will be updated over time as there are updates to the V40 Beta Testing Cycle

June 23, 2021

Beta opened for testing for the new Slayers of Fell Shadows event and heroes.

July 08, 2021

Beta opened for testing for the new Slayers of Fell Shadows event and heroes after the family bonus adjustment.
Raid Attacking Team information is added to Beta plus some fixes and changes.


A new challenge event is just arrived to Beta: Slayers of Fell Shadows.
It will include 5 new Legendary, 3 new Epic and 2 new Rare heroes.
A brand new Hero Family is a added from them. (Slayers Family).

I will set up the topics about these later today.


This time i’m more interested in how beta testers will react after all the ruckus of the previous beta.


If this is a new challenge event I’ll jump to the conclusion Mage tower is a Ninja Tower variant/replacement.


Since - according to devs - what we want is more events, THIS IS EXCELLENT NEWS! GREAT! AWESOME! LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!


There are a lot less of them, I think. I left the program, several others were talking about it as well openly.


Oh Lord yet another new event. It’s pretty obvious at this point they’re not gaining money anymore from old challenge events and are rushing to implement new ones. I’m starting to be glad that i’ve never pulled a single 5* event hero :rofl:


Exactly that. And I’m sure their metrics show higher “engagement” (whales spending money) for new events.

But I no longer care.


Just wanted to say an emphatic YES to this.

Even though I don’t like what they’re doing, I think this info is absolutely amazing, and deeply appreciate your (and @Guvnor’s) work on it.


What color reflect? I guess it is blue, because next event is Avalon.


A new event shouldn’t be a surprise since they have already started the pattern of adding a secondary color event with League of Villains and Starfall.


It will reflect Ice element.

I have started to work on the heroes topic.

I will let you know when it is ready…


Third new event?! What are they smoking…

Things are speeding up faster than previously… Crazy. Instead of investing 2020 money into QoL, they are showering us with heroes.


And there are two more pending as Small Giants wants an alternate event for all current challange events…
But I expect those only in 2022… One of them may arrive to Beta at the end of this year…


QoL most likely would not rake in revenue as much as new shining heroes would!

I’m speechless… and not in a good way!
When is enough, enough…??! Especially in this (short) time period…??
This is getting ridiculous…


Not necessarily. Remember that vacation period is coming. I expect that beta will be closed soon (in mid of July I suppose) and will open in August.

It’s a terribly cheesy title for an event.

The topic for Slayers of Fell Shadows Heroes is added:


The challange event topic has added too:
