Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

Announcing: The “Web-Slinger Challenge”

You Already Know What It Is!

Are you ready to step up and fight the enhanced Champions of the Web-Slinger Challenge? Get ready for this bonus quest that exists in addition to the quests we already have on the go, with the regular big caveat… It’s REALLY hard! Remember Dave Bautista’s Cosmic Challenge? Harder than that! The event will start at 10am PDT on July 12th and ends on August 9th at 10am PDT.

Remember, This isn’t a quest for everybody to complete, and you will probably have to use some of your stashed resources. I don’t want to hear any complaining about it being too hard, because THIS IS MEANT TO BE HARD!

Wait, this is gonna be Harder than Dave Bautista’s Cosmic Challenge?
Yep! All of the opponents are a little bit stronger, and the inclusion of Spider-Man (Stark Enhanced) and Vulture might throw some challengers off! But, we’ve also bumped up the rewards for the event as well. You’ll now get enough shards to form a full T4B in Act Completion Rewards and 400 more 5-Star Shards for taking the Challenge down!

Is this going to have that Portal set-up from last time?
Yes and no. The Challenge still consists of 1 Chapter and contains 4 Quests, each with 31 fights. Each quest consists of 6 paths, connected with portals, with 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. We feel this portal setup is an improvement from the Dave Bautista’s Cosmic Challenge version, and should allow for much greater choice in difficulty and progression.

Who am I gonna be punching in the face?
Get your evade killers ready, because you’ll be taking on Spider-Man (Classic), Spider-Man (Symbiote), Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man (Miles Morales), and Spider-Man (Stark Enhanced).

The Bosses will be Rhino, Venom, Electro, and Vulture!

Any buffs to be on the lookout for?
Yep! There will be a number of Buffs on the opponents as you progress, but one of note... Remember the Life Transfer buff introduced in Act 5, Chapter 1? It’s back! It’ll be a global node in Quests 3 and 4. As a reminder, that buff means you degenerate 2% of your Max Health per second, but steal 125% of the damage you deal as health. Life Transfer will benefit Summoners who attack aggressively, and can pull you out of a tough spot if you play your cards right. That said, it can very well work to your disadvantage in critical situations, should you play in an overly defensive manner.

How about those rewards?

Alright, let’s get right into it!


Since the content consists of 1 Chapter only, players will receive Chapter Completion and Act Completion rewards as well as Chapter Exploration and Act Exploration rewards at the same time.

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 and there’s only one entry per player. Summoners will have until the end of the event on August 9th at 10am PDT to 100% complete all of the quests in order to qualify for the Legends Title.

There you have it Summoners! It’s time to prove, are you the predator, or the prey?

    I'm excited to do this Challenge, good rewards and all, even though I hate evasion champs.

    One question though, has this been tested? Because the last Challenge had these portals in the beginning, then you changed them because of a minor bug.

    Can we talk about anything new without spamming about Carnage? That gets old after a while.
  • SaiyanSaiyan Posts: 478 ★★★
    I'm all in for this once it works as it should (as in the Drax one where the portals didn't work right and you had to do ALL the fights in one go)

    Also if Elektra worked as she should vs evasion champs it's be great also.

    Nice to see you're going back to how Daves was supposed to work (can do 1 path at a time then jump to boss and return for another path) but how long until you change it so you have to beat all 31 fights in a row claiming that's how it was intended?

    Also, don't act like that set up is brand new, you (kabam) know for a fact that's how you said the portals in the Dave challenge was going to work.

    "We feel this portal setup is an improvement from the Dave Bautista’s Cosmic Challenge version, and should allow for much greater choice in difficulty and progression."

    So...just like Bautista was promised to work but you couldn't get the code to work?
  • So, the portals ... are these the same as bautusta's challenge, but only "fixed"?

    And, Archangel will kill them all (get ready for a debuff immune spider-man)

    Will Spite be a global node for this challenge as well or no?

    There is no 5* awaken gem, it's 4* awaken crystal, not even a generic one.

    Are the exploration rewards really meant to include a single tier 1 alpha catalyst?
