Introducing New Content: SHOWCASE

Foreword

On March 18th, we will be introducing a new type of content: the Alliance War Showcase! Showcase content will highlight previous competitive seasons, and the resulting metas, drawing inspiration from game modes like Alliance Wars and Battlegrounds. This content will be playable entirely solo and won’t require a fully engaged Alliance!

Overview

Start: March 18th, 18:00 UTC
End: April 1st, 18:00 UTC

Team Size: 4, with a 1-Champion choice node right before the final boss
Quest Paths: 2
  • One emphasizing non-tactic fights
  • One emphasizing tactic fights
Quest Fights: 8
  • 4 shared
  • 4 unique to the path
Time Limit: 2 hours
Strict Fight Quit penalty structure from AW is carried over by increasing Health penalties for repeatedly force-quitting fights

Design Philosophy

When we showcase a competitive meta, we want to bring together some of the greatest challenges, most satisfying interactions, and even occasionally explore “What if…” scenarios. Like what if Red Skull had his updated defensive kit when he was a Sugar Pill defender? Where might Alliance War defense planners place him…

This first Alliance War Showcase features fights from Sugar Pill and Decay Alliance War tactics seasons. Dust off your Sandman, knock the spider webs off Silk, try out the updated Luke Cage, and look to a few mainstay Alliance War attackers as you plan your teams for this quest! And for a preview of some of the twists in this merging of competitive fights and a single-player quest, you can expect…
  • Most of the common Defender Masteries applied via nodes
  • A 2-hour quest timer instead of an in-fight timer
  • A mix of meta defender placements, both tactic and non-tactic
  • and more!
For those who took similar paths every war of the Sugar Pill seasons, we hope you enjoy the chance to revisit and share that experience with the rest of the community. We also hope those who typically shy away from Alliance War enjoy the chance to experience some of its challenges adapted into a single-player format that’s maybe more your usual style.

Rewards

The two-path quest includes completion and exploration rewards.

Completion:
2 Loyalty Crystal Shatter Tokens
1 Boss-related Emote

Exploration:
5 Loyalty Crystal Shatter Tokens
1 Planet X Atmosphere (King Groot (Deathless) Piece

Note: These new Loyalty Crystal Shatter Tokens can be redeemed for either 7-Star Hero Crystal Shards or Loyalty Crystal Shatter, with a 7-Star Loyalty Crystal having the cost of 15 Loyalty Crystal Shatter.

    Hopefully these questions are not silly, but as a member of an alliance that is not very active or in close communication I'd like some clarification: Is a team size of (4) 4 alliance members or your specific team size? Is there a way for 1 individual to get exploration rewards or are 2 players needed at a minimum?

    Looks intersting, hope it doesn't cost me too many revives. Which revives will work with this? Hopefully war revives will work for this event.

    Hard to understand is it a sole or team need

    This is Single Player content so that would be a team size of 4 Champions!
    Answer mine to that’s team was trow me of probably been better to just say 4 champions allow to use

    It very clearly states in the info it is solo content
    Yea the team word was mistranslated for him considering it said war to so probably a bit to many assumption. To

    Total 8 defenders and 4 in each path. Time limit is 2hrs. Will have to wait and see how tough it is.
  • LJFLJF Posts: 170 ★★★
    What's the idea behind imposing a 2 hour time limit? It's not necessarily bad or good, I just don't understand why it's there. Is there some particular element of difficulty you're imposing in requiring a clear of everything in one play session?
  • ButtehrsButtehrs Posts: 4,738 ★★★★★
    About that 2 hour time limit, is that per path or for both at the same time once started?
  • JerryJiverJerryJiver Posts: 104
    Will reviving be done via 1-loyalty aw revives, or normal solo quest revives?

    Because "this will be playable entirely SOLO" wasn't clear enough? Seriously...
    It was clear after I read it twice

    It’s related to AW in that it’s using aw tactics on the path
  • Wakandas_FinestWakandas_Finest Posts: 824 ★★★★
    How many fights per path and are we using energy? If so what’s the energy cost and type?
