Hello Skylords, Skyladies and other Skybeings.

Welcome to the third official rPvE event!
We hope you will have a lot of fun with this event!

What kind of event will it be?

rPvE/Battlegrounds singleplayer - Map of the Month - Difficulty 7

For this challenge, we want to test your deck building skills. A deck normally consists of 20 cards. We decided that we should go back to the beginning, back to where it all began: The Tutorial deck! However, it would not be fun if everyone played the same deck, so we gave it a little spin. In previous rPvE events there were restrictions on colour or ground presence, this time there will be a slot restriction. This event is not entirely based on speed tough, so read on to find out how you can succeed in this event!


When will it start?

We will be accepting entries starting today.

The event will run for about two weeks, specifically until 17.03.2022 23:59 CET.
You can send your replays through DM to me on Discord (
Metagross31#1103) or through a PM to me on the forum (@Metagross31).


How can I participate?

You just have to send in your replay with which you want to participate, including the player name, the number of cards used and your reached time.

For example: "Metagross31_10cards_time_00h20m30s"

You can send in your replays until the
17.03.2022.
You can find your replays here: Documents=>Battleforge=>replays


Please note:
You are allowed to send in different replays, but only your fastest replay per league will be counted. You can submit replays to multiple leagues, but you can not be drafted for a random draw in a lower league, if you already won something in a higher league.
Your entry has to be a victory!


What is the objective?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The goal is to beat the current singleplayer rPvE map of the month with a deck consisting of as little cards as possible. Depending on the number of cards used, your replay will be part of one of the following leagues:

Rookie League - Up to 15 cards
Advanced League - Up to 10 cards
Iron League - Up to 7 cards
Master League - Up to 5 cards
Insanity League - Up to 3 cards

Sounds fun! What's the prize pool?

There are different prize pools for the different leagues, with the "higher" leagues having bigger rewards. Also, you not only get rewards for having the fastest run, but there are also some rewards for competing, which get distributed between the people in a certain league. Additionally, the fastest time in each league gets an additional reward. In the lower leagues, these rewards will only be given out to people below a certain rank.

Rookie League:
1 general booster for 1/3 of submissions in this league (33.3%), distributed randomly
3 general boosters for the fastest run in this league (Maximum rank to get this reward: Strategist (6) or lower)

Advanced League:
1 general booster for 1/2 of submissions in this league (50%), distributed randomly
4 general boosters for the fastest run in this league (Maximum rank: Lord (9) or lower)

Iron League:
1 general booster for 3/4 of submissions in this league (75%), distributed randomly
4 fire/frost boosters for the fastest run in this league (Maximum rank: Skylord (12) or lower)

Master League:
1 general booster for every submission in this league
6 general boosters for the fastest run in this league (No maximum rank)

Insanity League:
1 general booster + 150 bfp for every submission in this league
8 general boosters for the fastest run in this league (No maximum rank)
5 general boosters for the 2nd fastest run in this league
3 general boosters for the 3rd fastest run in this league
1 general booster for the 4th and 5th fastest runs in this league


Additionally, there will be a reward of a non-promo Ultra rare card of your choice for the three fastest runs across all leagues.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                                                                                    

In conclusion
This event focuses on your deck building skills, flexibility and speed on this month's rPvE 1p map.

To summarize the event in simple steps:

- Choose which league(s) you want to participate in.
- Build your
deck according to the restrictions
- Come up with a
strategy for your run.
- Beat the current map of the month, difficulty 7 while being as fast as possible.

Satisfied? Send the replay to me! (Metagross31#1103 on Discord or via PM in the forums @Metagross31).

  • Metagross31 changed the title to Official 1p rPvE Contest#3 The Minimalistic Firewatch - Difficulty 7 - Until 17th March 2022

Just to clarify something that has been asked by some players already:
You can get the participation reward for both the Master league and the Insanity league at the same time. You can also try to hunt for the fastest time in multiple leagues at the same time (as long as your rank isn't too high). Finally, you can also submit runs to the lower leagues if you have a higher rank and they may be counted towards the "fastest run across all leagues" rewards, but they will not be counted towards the fastest run in that particular leage if you are above the maximum rank.

number of cards used

Cool! Another point of clarification while we are at it... Could we bring a full deck but only use 3 cards and have it count as Insanity league? I ask because of messing up a few times actually bring 3 cards only... 🙂

As far as I know the only thing I can read from a replay file are the cards you actually used, not the ones you brought. So if I can see any more cards used in the replay itself or with the replay analyzer tool, the run would not be valid. Otherwise it is fine.

Cool! I think that'll let me be a little more aggressive (I still need plenty of gold for card upgrades so would be nice if I can salvage it even if a run doesn't qualify for this challenge).

 

I'm usually pretty slow but I have already learned a decent amount attempting 3 cards/5 cards runs (I did succeed in those actually but eyeing for faster time now). I seen pretty insane times but looking forward to what others can do given the restrictions.

Cool Idea. I will be interested to see the others in the insanity league. 

And maybe even possible with 2 cards?

Pretty sure Phase+LSS(g) clears but the T4 take would be very annoying to play :^)
Thinking about it Comet Catcher Nomad should be less annoying to execute.

I agree, it feels like 2 cards is doable (for really good players which I don't count myself as) but definitely seems rather annoying. I have decent time left with 3 cards and I assume my card selection, strategy, and execution is pretty average/below average.

A quick update:
I have already gotten a lot of replays from you guys. Thank you all for that!
Also remember, that you may send in replays for all the leagues. You can also always try to imrpove your times to go for the speed rewards!

Hm so reading this I understand that if I do insanity and Master I get only one booster anyway. or master and iron = no chance for booster on iron. 

But then you wrote that

So only possible for the 2 expert ones and not additional (booster) rewards for lower ones I guess?

The second one is correct. Getting a participation reward in a higher league only excludes you from the random drafts in the iron league and below.

I think what this means for most people is they will end up with 1 booster for just a successful run from random draw or participation reward (depending on league). And I think that as incentive for Insanity league, you get a total of 2 booster and 150 BFP just for participation. For Master league, you don't really loose out either since you now guaranteed yourself a booster pack as opposed to having a very high chance of Iron league (sorry, my math is a bit rusty and I think ~91.67% for either winning random draw of Iron league OR (loosing Iron league then winning Advanced league OR [loosing Iron and Advanced league then winning Rookie league])).

 

If you want more then you'll need to compete for the fastest run of league(s) that you qualify for. As a bonus for you have a shot at at non-promo UR card of your choice for having the absolute fastest time.

 

 

Disclaimer on "most people": I am assuming there is a decent amount of people in leagues above Rookie league otherwise if everyone/a lot of people did just Rookie league then in fact most people will get nothing (~33% on random draw so ~67% of people get nothing for this league). On other hand, if everyone did a successful run of Master or Insanity league then everyone gets at least 1 booster.

Hey everyone,

just a quick reminder that you only have today and tomorrow left to compete for this event. So use your remaining time to improve your times or try some of the other leagues! 🙂

Also, make sure to check out the stream this Saturday at 6pm CET, where we will take a look at some of the winning replays. We will also be doing a small lottery with big prizes 🙂

I'm pretty blown away by the time achieved by others and humbled to have lucked out due to rank limit to have some commentary on my run. Yep, I did find @Dallarian's pure :frostorb: guide to be a great help (even though I don't consider myself that new given my time playing in old days, I have always been a causal player: I didn't even know about 'Q' key for 'attack move'). It'll probably be a long while before I attempt a pure :frostorb: deck though. Is pretty sad that my run times with a full deck isn't much better so I know I got lots things to improve on... I have considered split attack after T4 but don't the skill to pull it off and is absolutely amazing to see someone manage to do it so nicely (and with less cards to boot)!

 

I did have lot of fun and earned a lot of gold doing this event (I do intend to review so replays to see if they can help me improve a little)! Thanks for the event and all the hard work for making it happen! Looking forward to future events! 🙂
