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.

PSA: This months' side quest returns more energy than it consumes

I was going to post this yesterday but it slipped my mind, then another post reminded me of it.

This month the side quest costs energy: one point per move. An optimal run to explore a map takes five runs burning a total of 54 energy. Exploring every difficulty would in theory cost 270 energy per week for four weeks, 1080 energy in total.

However, each full exploration of a map returns one full energy refill per map, which means for any player that currently has an energy cap of 54 or more the side quest maps either cost no net energy or actually return more energy than they consume.

So if you have the time, explore every map. You will actually end up with more quest energy than when you started, and the rewards are pretty good as well if you can do the maps without burning significant consumables.

Also, if you make a mistake, don't be too hard on yourself because you probably haven't lost all that much energy.

    Even better, it's actually only 52 energy - when running a zigzag path, from the second middle intersection you only need to go straight ahead as the nodes all get completed on the outside lane anyway.

    I really liked that you got energy back from the rewards. It incentivizes exploration without leaving you completely dry on energy for other areas of the game. I hope they keep it going forward, at least every now and again. Energy refills are always nice.
