Announcing: The Champions of Valhalla Event

edited October 25 in General Discussion
Summoners!

The Grandmaster has set up a new tournament in The Battlerealm, to find the most worthy among all of his Summoners! In doing so, he’s bringing a lot of new things to the contest that you’ll want to know about!

The Champions of Valhalla Event begins November 1st! This event is full of new and exciting events, and details, including a new Leaderboard, a new type of Solo Event and a whole new feature called Bounty Missions!

But first, let’s dig into the biggest part of the event, a new temporary currency called Valor!

Win Valor to prove your Worth!


Valor is a new limited-time currency you can earn throughout the Champions of Valhalla event. It can be earned in four main areas:
The “Gods of the Arena” Event Quest (The November Event Quest)
- November 4-Star Featured Hero Arenas
- New Vanquishing Blow Solo Events
- New Bounty Mission - Test of Valor

You can accumulate Valor, and then use it in the limited time Valor Store, where Summoners will be able to purchase items like 4-Star Hero Crystals, 5-Star Hero Crystal Shards, Tier 4 Class Catalyst Crystals, and Tier 2 Alpha Fragments! (See below for all the details!)

But Valor has an even more important role to play… Collect Valor to prove yourself as the true Champion of Valhalla!

Prove your Worth on the Valor Leaderboard!


In addition to being able to spend Valor in the Valor Store, it will also be cumulatively tracked on the Valor Leaderboard! Don’t worry, this is a cumulative total, so if tracks all of the Valor you have every received, so it doesn’t matter if you spend it!

Place yourself in the Top 10 Summoners on the Valor Leaderboard, and earn a 5-Star Thor (Ragnarok) after the event ends. The #1 Summoner will earn a bonus 5-Star Thor (Ragnarok)!

1st - 2x 5-Star Thor (Ragnarok)
2nd-10th - 1x 5-Star Thor (Ragnarok)
11 - 1,000 - 1x 4-Star Thor (Ragnarok)
1,001 - 10,000 - 1x 3-Star Thor (Ragnarok)
Top 10,000 (all) - "Champion of Valhalla" Rare Title

Prizes will be awarded within two weeks of the event ending - as we need to review winners.

Do note, Summoners, we will be keeping a close eye on Valor and the ways and means Summoners are earning it. Use of exploits or nefarious means to earn more Valor than is normally possible, or more than one Test of Valor every 6 hours will be looked on unfavorably by the Grandmaster. Possible actions include loss of Valor, removal from the Valor Leaderboard or worse. Let’s not go that route!

What is a Vanquishing Blow?


Vanquishing Blow Solo Events are a brand new event in the Contest that award points for finishing off your Opponent in a specific way! A Vanquishing Blow is the final type of damage dealt that reduces your opponent to zero health.

For example, there may be an event for “Medium Hit”, where the killing blow must be a Medium Attack. There could be an event for “Special 2”, where the killing blow must be from a Special 2 attack. There could also be one for “Using Bleed”, where the opponent KO must come from Bleed damage. This doesn’t mean hit them while they’re bleeding, it means that the bleed must be the one to do it.

Vanquishing Blow Solo Events will be available November 1st, 5PM PDT until December 5th, 4PM PST. As with all 24 hour Solo Events there is a short downtime between each event - so check your Solo Events list to check out all the details!

Bounty Missions and Tests of Valor!


Bounty Missions are brand new feature that you may see come back around the Contest in the future. It’s a pretty big feature, so we’re adding a new post about it right here!

Prepare yourself Summoners! The Champions of Valhalla event runs from November 1st until December 6th and you’ll need to be on the latest version of Marvel Contest of Champions to earn your Valor!

    Happy to see that something new is coming. However is complicated to understand all of it, so I guess I'll wait until next week to see how this is going to be

    it is a lot of information to absorb! If I can simplify it, I would say: Earn Valor in the game, spend Valor on items in the Valor Store. Everytime you earn Valor, you have a chance to start a Quest for your whole Alliance. The Valor you earn is also going to be tracked on a Leaderboard that gives you a chance to score a new Thor (Ragnarok).

    Also, introducing a new Solo event where you can win extra points by finishing your opponent in a specific way.

    Can an entire alliance try and earn thor or no?

    So this is very confusing. For people who don't play the arena's (70% of the player base) how many valor points can we accumulate?

    other post says "so it’s up to you to choose which path you’d prefer to take to the final boss, who will always be either Hela or Thor (Ragnarok)" this mean Hela is going to be a new champion? ive seen some talk of only getting one champion this month.
  • Can valor be earned from the other arenas like the 3* featured and the 4* basic or will it only be available for the 4* featured arena?

    Mephsito part of regen section of the map and magik in full immunity section except in expert mode none of our champions will able to even kill them quick enough due to full immunity....how fun will bounty mission will be -_-
  • Sounds like I'm gonna grind my fingers off next month.

    Sorry. Just a question.

    It states in the description that you'll be penalized if you enter more than one bounty/Test of Valor every 6 hours. Will there be a timer to let us know when the 6 hours is up? Or will we be locked out being able to enter the bounty?

    The reason I'm asking is because there might be back-to-back bounties that will overlap into the 6 hour window, despite bounties being open for 6 hours. Eg. Bounty A opens at 1200. I enter Bounty A and clear it at 1600. At 1800, when Bounty A closes, Bounty B opens and I clear it immediately (at 1800). This will result in me clearing 2 bounties within a 6 hour window, causing me to be penalized.

    Thanks in advance.

    Don't do the expert one then.
  • Very interesting. I like the concept. I would like to see the rewards for 5* and t2a shards be a bit higher for the cost though. You should at least be able to get a full crystal or catalyst for that cost.

    Expert offers more pts obviously lol
  • In the tables, are the columns for valor from milestones cumulative or the reward for each lvl?

    Not sure I could see that statistic being accurate.

    Sounds interesting. I'm looking forward to something new. I like that it's a group effort.

    Milestones and rank rewards are how much valor pts you will earn if you do all 10 and place in rank rewards
