Solo Dungeon mode

All excited about dungeons. Went in and loved it ...

But then realized that I cannot continue after room 3. Why? I had full hp champs. My partner had full hp champs. The timer still had time. But I can't put aside 1 solid hour in the same sitting for a game. Not only I have to find this time slot completely dedicated to the game but I need to find another person who is at the same skill level to find the same time slot. I don't see that happening often.

I think the mode has potential to provide an alternative to arena grind which I despise so much due to the boring same fights nature of it. So, I propose a solo version of dungeons.

Keep the same format but one path. The enemies get increasingly difficult. Keep the 12 mins timer on the room but ditch the timer between the rooms. So, I can finish two rooms in my lunch break. Get on the train at the end of work and finish another 2 rooms and move forward if I get some time at night.

  • I like the idea but add this:

    Give yourself 2-3 paths at first that merge. Make the player which combination of buffs to leave on the opponent.

    Yes, that would be better.
  • thats a nice idea bro..!
    but i feel the main plot of dungeons was to create and encourage team play and coordination
    we have many solo events like Trails,Event quest, challenge and etc
    but we have only AQ & AW as the team events
    so this is a great step by kabam for creating new team event..!
    AND IAM LOVING IT.

    I agree, but i played today with 2 ppl that lost conexion and by the time they were back the time has ended and i got screwed. The window should be a little wider

    I normally play on train on my way to / from work (where you would expect most of the mobile games to be played) and the signal is not great in some patches. We still ended up clearing the room we're in but it was close due to those connection issues.

    It would have been good if this is how the game started 3 years ago, while everyone was new. Instead of driving everyone into finding 29 guys all we would have had to do is recruit a friend to play who was on the same schedule. But after 3 years of this i'm not about to entice a friend in here to get trapped in this hamster wheel. My first alliance experience was awful...i haven't and won't get to play the dungeons so there is no excitement about this for me. All of my alliance friends but 3 bailed when kabam made em mad about something months and months ago. So, here i am as a solo player with nothing to do but the same old grind. Enjoy it! Hope it pays off!

    This, only players like you and I can understand it, but we're a significant number of Kabam's customers. I posted my thoughts on Reddit earlier.

    Yeh, I like this idea a lot. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the teamwork aspect, but it's rather time-consuming.

    I'm enjoying dungeons... but 'jumping in and playing' isn't so easy when I have to find friends to play with- and with such long recharge timers, I'm reluctant to take my top-tier champs into a dungeon without a partner I know is on my level.

    Developing this game mode into a 1/2/4 player option seems feasible. But having the option for solo play would make it much less of a time-sink.

    For the last 3 rounds, I could get any of my alliance members to play dungeons ... platinum 1 alliance here.... soo, i had to play it with strangers and it was terrible ....

    I love the concept of fighting increasingly difficult enemies, unlike arena which is a mind numbing tap fest. It would be so great to have a solo option on this. This whole trying to find a partner at the exact same time as when you are free is flawed ... I don't know why your data has still not showed you this ... :\
