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.

Rework the energy in AQ

More global alliances can have trouble finishing maps with the current the current energy allowance in AQ. This is caused be people in different time zones doing things like sleeping, working or going to school at different time. This can make it extreamly more difficult to get through map 5 and 6. This can leave people waiting on others for hours.

An increase to the storage of energy from 5 to 8 or 10 would help counter this and keep the overall energy recharge rate the same.

    You need to coordinate better as a bg/ally. We have 4 or 5 in the UK or there abouts and the rest are US based. We dont have issues finishing. Find paths that make sense for people who need to move at different times

    It does add pressure. The 30 minute timers led to a a great week for aq. Didnt feel as much of a chore. Map 6 just takes one person to be offline for a while and completion goes out the window.

    30 minute timers are bad for alliance quest. It makes alliances who shouldn’t finish, finish and fluctuates scores too heavily. Coordinate well and you can still finish.

    5 hours into map 5 mini boss 1 should be down
    17 hours (due to sleeping) mini boss 2 should be down
    Dorm should be down with 4 hours to spare

    If you have guys in different time zones then the second mini can drop even sooner because they’re working while the other half sleeps.

    AQ was so much more fun and so much less of a grind last week.
