To prevent exploitation, we will prevent new Accounts from being able to Gift enlistment crystals. We will also be taking action on those who are using 3rd Party Sellers, Bots and other farms to gift themselves mass amounts of Enlistment Crystals. Lastly, we will be adding an expiration timer to Enlistment Crystals. All unopened Enlistment Crystals will expire on Oct 18 @ 17:00 UTC. For more information, please see this post: https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/346104/updates-to-enlistment-gifting-event
We have adjusted the node placement of the new AW maps to better allow path traversal. As a result, defender placements have been reset. Please, take a moment to re-place your defender setup. We will be pushing out a message in-game shortly.

Happy New Year, Summoners! We look forward to an exciting 2022 and happy to have you all along for the ride!


Get Compass (various colours) from inbox, Solo Objective rewards or Solo Events rewards > complete Quests (unlocks weekly on Wednesdays) > earn rewards


Start: January 5, 2022 @ 10AM (PT)

The Savage Land is a hidden prehistoric land. Its location, a well-guarded secret. Now, with the help of special compasses, you can explore this vast jungle and battle Champions in search of lost treasures. Quests will be released weekly and will contain gated paths and hidden rewards.

All quests have four (4) paths each, each requiring a different colour Compass to unlock. E.g. Quest 1 will require Red, Blue, Yellow and Green Compasses to unlock all four (4) paths. Please see Compasses section below for more details.

***Cavaliers and up will also get to explore an extra path in Quest 4 (Legendary Difficulty) with a special Platinum compass, for an extra special hidden treasure (see Rewards section for more details)!

Quest 1 - Jungle: January 5, 2022 @ 10AM (PT)
Quest 2 - Savannah: January 12, 2022 @ 10AM (PT)
Quest 3 - Mountain: January 19, 2022 @ 10AM (PT)
Quest 4 - Volcano: January 26, 2022 @ 10AM (PT)

Energy Cost

***Note that ALL Compasses work for ALL Difficulties. Feel free to use them on ANY Difficulty you want. This means you can also do all the Difficulties, if you want!



Every fight in each Quest will also feature a new experimental gameplay mechanic called Strikers! You can summon a specific Striker (chosen by a Quest buff) in a fight by pressing a new button above the Special Attack button. Each Striker has a different effect that they will apply to the Attacker or the Defender depending on the Striker. When you summon a Striker right after landing the 4th Light Attack in a combo, the Striker’s effect is enhanced. Strikers are available right away at the beginning of a fight, and after they are summoned there is a meter that must be built up before they can be used again. Some build up over time, while others build up by landing Hits and by being Struck.

The Strikers that will be available for these Quests are:
Quest 1: Colossus - grants the Attacker an Unblockable buff.
Quest 2: Wolverine - grants the Attacker a Regeneration buff.
Quest 3: Hulk - inflicts the Defender with a Weakness debuff.
Quest 4: Juggernaut - grants the Attacker an Unstoppable buff.

***Cavaliers and up: Legendary difficulty contains a special 5th path in Quest 4 that makes use of all four (4) Strikers and features some tougher fights but also a better reward!

    I like the easy side quest especially around these months when it tends to be very busy.

    Strikers sound fun! Very excited!

    Are toad and the dragon (forget his name) confirmed as the champs for next month? Curious. I assume both are since a title is toady.....lol

    Hyped for strikers. Looking fwd to testing, it looks like good addition

    Community- We want easier side quests!

    Kabam- You got it.

    Community- Rewards suck.

    You get what you ask for.

    How do you know this is easy? Quest is not released yet.
    Why wouldn't it be? They said in the announcement that the "tougher" fight will just be for TB. If it's anything like this months SQ, then it's easy. There's literally zero thought needed for this months SQ.

    Anthropomorphic crystal pool looks like doodoo

    Really? There’s only 4 champs I’d be disappointed to pull - the rest are all decent to great
    Yes, some decent pulls in there for sure.
  • I’m liking this. I just hope we don’t have the tag based cav meq quests. Then this would suck

    I wouldn't mind moleman, hit monkey, or spider ham. The rest don't really do much for my roster.

    Tigra, Sasquatch, VtD, even SG.

    Tigra, Sasquatch, VtD, even SG.

    Nothing in their kits that would make me use them over champions I already have at R3.
