🧪 The Beta Beat (V51) – Contest of Elements, Monster Island, new Season 5 heroes, November HoTM, Superior Talents -- 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.

: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:

And dragons! Dragons are our priority!

  • I am sure, some other new portal will emerge around december. SG cant stay still for next 4 months :wink:

Event related topic is now available:

I willl add some further details later.


The Beta testing of V51 Beta Build 1 was ended today.

Staff has not told us when will we get the next build.
It can be this or the next Wednesday.
We will see :slight_smile:

I have asked, and I have received an answer:
A new Beta is expected this Wednesday.


Staff has just shared us with the planned Beta schedule.

If we do not count W3K Beta, then this is the first time we know more than 1 Beta ahead.

I have added this to the OP too.

Thank you @Petri for providing us these dates, and setting us this new topic in Beta beat about the schedule !


With 4 builds, wonder what’s in the works.

We do not know the content, but my assumptions / guesses:

  • 8 remaining Contest of Element heroes for all other elements’ quests + the quest for another element. (I am not expecting the testing of all 4 other elements’ quests) maybe in Beta 3.
  • 1-2 more new Season V hero ? (Anubis, Cleopatra, Eset, Hathor, Ma’at, Set, ?? )
  • Maybe another round of Covenant of Champions event testing after the fix .
  • Maybe November’s HoTM
  • Maybe additional Gargolyes or costumes ?

I think the earlier points have more chance to arrive.


i hope we get new hotm costumes. they are due for sure



what would you think of such hero :

Innate passive : hero is unnaffected by any mana affects (no positive or negative effects of buffing mana, speeding her or cutting in any way. For rush war, her speed is limited to average + mana troops (making her technically fast)

Speed : Very slow
Special (Judgement day) : EXECUTES ENEMY HERO // new skill execute : target cant be revived by skill (tyr for example or marie therese) or talent/fighter (can be ressurected by special though) // titans and story bosses take 1000% dmg

What do you think? I dont feel she (executrix) is out of the line in any way/ shape or form. Judgement day comes for all of us :stuck_out_tongue:

So in rush format, you need 3 matches (9 tiles) whereas Alfrike can go in 2 matches.

I included it in BETA beat, since SG usually takes my idea of heroes into game :slight_smile:


If they decide to add the Nov hotm, they may as well add the Dec hotm as well

V51 Beta 2 has just arrived, with the Monster Island event.

Some very preliminary information is added here:

I will refine it later.

This seems to be new hero free event so far.


With Monster Island now coming, all that’s left is the Base Update in the Sneak Peek, and something about Dragons(but given how this is a big update, i would have this come out at the start of 2023.)
