Summoners, we recently encountered an issue with the Alliance Quest Setup Phase Starting Timer that may cause the Setup Phase Starting Timer to display erroneous information, though we are working on a fix for it as quickly as possible. Additionally, if the Setup Phase does not let you plan your days in advance, you will be able to once the Event officially begins on the Alliance Quest Start date.

For clarity, the next Alliance Quest Enlistment Phase will begin on December 5 at 20:00 UTC, regardless of what the in-game timers display.

The next Alliance Quest Start will be on December 6 at 20:00 UTC. This is when Summoners should be able to enter each Map. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.
Alliance War Season Rewards will start to roll out to Summoners very soon. These will take a while to get to everybody, so do not worry if an Alliance Mate receives their rewards, but you haven't yet. We thank you for your patience.

Announcing: Michael B Jordan's Challenge

Make the sky the very beginning of your limits and overcome Michael B. Jordan’s Challenge!

Michael B. Jordan, who plays Erik Killmonger in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther movie, has readied his team to challenge you in the Michael B. Jordan’s Challenge. Do you have what it takes to challenge Killmonger? Show your skill!

This bonus quest exists in addition to the Quests that are already on the go, and let’s start this post with our usual warning… This is hard! Take a trip down memory lane to Grandmaster Goldblum’s Champion Challenge. It’s similar to that, but much more “aggressive”!

This isn’t gonna be easy, not everybody is going to be able to complete it, and not everybody is meant to! Those of you that can will earn your right to title yourself a “Wakandan Warrior”!

This Challenge starts NOW (January 25, 10 am PT), and runs until February 21st at 10 am PT!

Is this about the same difficulty as previous Challenges?[/b[

For the most part, the difficulty is pretty on par with the last Challenges, but this one does not feature the Life Transfer Buff that the others did, and our new Buffs are challenging by nature. Overall we have not greatly changed the base difficulty, but this will be a new experience.

Is the structure similar to Grandmaster Goldblum’s Challenge?

Yes indeed! The Challenge consists of only 1 Chapter, and contains 4 quests. Each of these quests has 31 Fights! Each quest will consist of 6 paths, connected with portals, and 5 fights on each of them. There are 7 Portals on the map, with the 1st portal exiting to the beginning of any path, except the final boss. The rest will exit to either the Boss, or the next path. This way, you can teleport to your latest checkpoint next time you play if you weren't able to fully complete a quest on your first attempt.

There is one difference though… The final boss of the final quest will be a 6-Star Champion!

Who are Michael B. Jordan’s chosen Champions?

You’ll be facing off against Black Panther (Classic), Black Widow, War Machine, Falcon, and Iron Man. Black Panther (Civil War) will be the Boss of every Quest.

So what kind of Buffs are we gonna be up against?
We are using some new Buffs that encourage aggressive play, appropriately called Aggression Buffs. The Aggression Buffs provide the opponent with abilities like Fury, Cruelty and Regeneration to enhance their core abilities, and these Buffs can only be removed by hitting the enemy.

Aggression Buffs will add a Passive Buff to the opponent every 2 seconds. When struck, the timer is reset, and a single stack of that Buff is removed. Aggressive play will keep these Buffs in check!

These are in addition to generic Global Buffs, such as Attack & Health Boosts, and some other minor Local Buffs unique to each encounter, and the Warning! Buff.

We’ve also cooked up a new Buff for the Boss called “Sharpened Claws”! Stay away from the mighty claws of the Black Panther, or suffer some extreme bleed damage!

What are the Rewards?

Let’s take a look!

Is there a Legends Title involved?

Yes there is! We’ll be using the “Time Attack” legends title approach. Your time starts when you begin the Challenge and ends when you 100% Complete all the quests. The top 100 fastest players will earn a Legends title, Legends points and one Tier 4 Class Catalyst Crystal. If you’re one of the fastest 5, you’ll get an additional two crystals, for a total of three Tier 4 Class Catalyst Crystals.Your time cannot be paused, so be careful on when you begin. There’s only one entry per player. Summoners will have until the end of the event on February 21st at 10am PT to 100% complete all of the quests in order to qualify for the Legends Title.

What designation do I earn for Mastering this Challenge?

For those of you that can defeat all of Michael B. Jordan’s Champions, you will forever earn yourself the rare title of "Wakandan Warrior"!

    Sorry i was wrong. I missed to watch the reward
  • kingsragekingsrage Posts: 7
    Not even worth our time give us some kind of challenge make a second level of difficulty or something with better rewards

    These rewards would have been great 2 years ago
  • So Magik is just going to face roll through this.

    The rewards are weak for us at this point as I think it was the same for Goldblum. That said, we're all still going to do it
  • KnightarthusKnightarthus Posts: 419 ★★★
    Rewards are very very underwhelming to say the least
  • WhatRYouWhatRYou Posts: 443 ★★
    Only the final boss is a 6* champ, other than that, same thing as last challenge. Rewards add up for now!!
    You have to be aggressive, cant bait too long!!
    Good luck!

    When will we see special events with rewards we acutely need and can use? Like 5* awakening gem t2 alphas t5 basics? This is garbage @Kabam Miike not really garbage appreciate the extra content but with 6*s coming out will need new events with better rewards to balance the game. Thank you
  • mostlyharmlessnmostlyharmlessn Posts: 956 ★★★
    Another, probably B movie campy fun quest.... Any word on Energy required?

    My fingers are crossed!!

    Is this gonna be another one I can't complete with my 85k roster and rewards I don't really care for anyway? You had winners with the modok and ragnorok events these last few stink. Only vets can do them but they all have dozens of duped 4* already and you give away a 4* gem? Us 50-100k guys could use those.
  • It’s split into sections so you can go as far as your roster will take you.

    That’s preferable to stuff like the boss challenge where you get all or nothing.

    Looking forward to it.

    I cant believe it. You've actually managed to make this even easier. This challenge was literally a cakewalk. There is 0 right to complain. I'm actually already done.
