As we continue to work to address ongoing issues regarding Parry and Evade, we will be extending the Week 4 Quest of the Summer of Pain and its Solo Objectives by 1 week to better allow you to complete this content. This will not result in next week's content being delayed.

Enter the Grandmaster's Gauntlet!

    Won’t any units spent on this be more productive being spent on 4th deals and with less stress?

    If you can actually do this with reasonable amount of resources spent, this is way better value for money than the holiday deals.

    Just wanted to hop in say thanks for the cool piece of content! It was difficult as promised. Of course the level of difficulty each player experienced will vary, but I think we can all agree it wasn't a stroll through the park. 🙂 And the rewards were quite good. Looking forward to the Summer of Pain event as well.

    5000 units for TB players at Xmas got you exactly 0 t5cc. I know they’ll loosen the tap some with t6b and t3a around but I don’t think 5000 units gets more than 20% (along with a pile of shards and other mats)

    Also, I figured out why these rewards bugged me so much. There’s no way to get exactly 3 chests.

    1 path - completion only
    2 - comp plus one chest
    3 - comp plus two
    4 - comp and all four chests.

    Make the fourth chest exploration rewards and it’d be more intuitive.

    Its so worth it to spend on gauntlet over july fourth. I am. I will go in with 14-17 revives, 250+ (hopefully) lvl 3 health pots, 1700 units and willing to drop and odin if it comes to that. Namorless quakeless team.

    Well, I wasn‘t really active for some months, only did the monthly Events and some Alliance stuff. So I collected 5000+ units (Platpool Incursion Packs, other Events).

    Without Namor/Quake … some fights are really tough. That Terrax first path is so annoying and Korg is even worse. Both can damage you so hard (inflated stats) with their rock garbage. Ægon rules.

    Why don‘t you use 999 Combo Ægon? He should purify anything immediately so it must be easy.

    I did it with same team as @Metalsonicdude
    R3 Apoc, R3 Prof X, R3 Doom, R5 Namor and R2 Cable(for synergy)

    But I do not have his skills and it costed me about 2k units, mainly for potions.
    Apoc had over 70k hp max boosted 😅😅



    Nexus was pretty good and picked Aarkus


    Ranked Corvus to R3, Cable up for R3 next

    So what if i get into the gauntlet but couldn't complete it before it expires and when it'll come back again in future I'll start from where i already was???

    I don't think so. If you complete the first chest, you can claim the other chests when in comes back. For people who have explored it, the rewards cannot be claimed again when it comes back.

    Just finished the Gauntlet. 1.5k units + stash. Although certain fights were tricky, it felt more fun than Abyss fights.

    Although it would still be beneficial to be able to save Selector's instead of needing to pick something right away, I do want to applaud Kabam for the recent patch giving the small QoL improvement of being able to see what catalysts we already have and what fragments we have. That made selecting catalysts not stressful at all.

    Well, I've finished it even I don't have explored all permanent content :lol:
    Two things that I didn't like about this challenge: performance of the game currently suck ass and swallows, number of times I've got KOed due to lag, screen freezing or champion didn't respond to my input was so much higher that actual mistakes.
    And second, I absolutely loved that there are only t5cc selectors, but not for champions. After this crazy challange we should have at least one 6* crystal where we just choose which champion we get.

    Who you use?
