Summoners, the Necrosword Crystals (the crystals in the Knull Cavalier Preview Bundle) currently have a higher than intended drop rate of 6-Star Champions.

We will be leaving the crystals as is for the time being, but will be correcting the drop rates before Knull receives his official release on October 28th. To ensure that this does not affect anybody that purchased this preview bundle, we will be auto-opening these crystals before that date, but this means you will not see what you received. To avoid any confusion, please open your crystals yourself ASAP.

Enter the Grandmaster's Gauntlet!

    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?
    Here was my team and thoughts > https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/267823/i-came-i-saw-i-conquered-i-gauntlet-done-velvet-thoughts/p1
    I have a 6* r1 unduped fantastic does he need dupe?
    nope he doesn't "need" it .. it's just a cool little bonus.

    This content was executed pretty well. The Korg fight was annoying. In fact it was the only fight I truly struggled with but it was worth it. Plus, I should be able to still get all the unit deals in a few weeks assuming they top out at 21k again.

    6r3 corvus, 6r2 magneto, 6r2 moleman, 5r5 arch and 5r5 magik (magik wasn't optimal, should have brought quake even I'm not comfortable with her)

    Surely this is a joke, right? They didn't even give that for abyss exploration and this is a lot easier in comparison and also more fun imo.
    Not at all, Abyss is easier in my opinion

    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

    The same nexus pick here!

    Well, my Nexus was‘t as good as I hoped … had to choose She-Hulk. My regular 6* gave Kingpin and Hit-Monkey.

    Go for completion rewards then. That’s what I did on my mini as it didn’t have the right counters for some fights
    Cant bc my skills are trash. 6 yrs of playing and skills are trash 😭🤣

    There is always unitman for backup. 😂

    You know what’s great? Using a ton of resources on what’s advertised as the hardest content in the game, only to have this poorly coded game betray you at the worst time.

    I lost my Horseman status for archangel in the middle of my run. Thanks, guys. At least it wasn’t Aegon I guess.

    Just finished exploring, totally worth it for me personally

    O
    One thing I'll say as advice, take breaks after each path. Even though it's smaller than abyss, it's just as exhausting. You'll make less mistakes if you take breaks. I would have saved 15 revives on sasquatch if I hadn't been frustrated of tiredness of fighting. But it's totally worth spending units on, I personally don't think you'll get this level of rewards for 5k units, which is the absolute maximum you'll need

    I boosted and did 3-4 fights at a time. When boosts were done, so was I. This is great advice, no matter how you split it up.

    And congrats on your Jane Foster. She’s great!

    So I entered the Grandmaster's Gauntlet and completed it entirely and below is what I got from it.

    The team I used Aegon, Namor, AA, RedMags & Apoc.

    I entered this assignment and have not finished yet (stopped on the last path). The menu says that there are 1 day and 6 hours left to complete the task. You have added 1 day to complete the task if the person manages to enter before the end of the event. Is it true?

    Have had him as a R3 for a long long time (3rd R3 iirc). His damage is good, good utility for buffed up/Diss track, can’t be power drained, good for hurt locker (the 15 hits special node), shuts down robots once in awhile.. overall pretty decent. Not to mention good on AW defense.

    Already R2 and contemplating R3. I have a soft spot for champions with exotic utility and at least nominal damage, and since my alliance is not very competitive in alliance war I have a feeling an R3 Aarkus is going to come as a bit of a surprise on defense if I go that route.

    For me, He's one of the complimentary characters of this game, useful in (AW.AQ. Quest, etc...)
    LIst:
    Vision Aarkus
    Mojo
    Hyperion
    (name others you know)...

    Off the top of my head: Venom, Claire, Magik, Warlock, Doom, Apocalypse, Dragon Man, Killmonger, Void, Guardian are all champs that have strong utility, are useful on both offense and defense, have uses in all game modes, and maintain their usefulness in higher tier content.
