I think event like this should have been done with cards what everyone have access. Right now I am missing 3 cards and all of them have skyrocket in price, they are like 50 or near each. Even skeleton warrior.

Or you guys should have at least give out code what gives thouse cards...

 

I am old veteran, played game when it was official and just started to play again like 3 weeks ago. Even that I don't have much experience of game economy, but what I remember in past, there was lot of common cards on sale. Now there isn't what push prices. If I do quick search on market:

- Common 882 cards

- Uncommon 998 cards

- Rare 1006 cards

- Ultra Rare 351 cards

 

Not sure if it's card reforge to put blame on this? Does people just trash all extra to reforge? idk.. But this doesn't help new players because it's difficult to get charges even for most basic cards.

At least for me it's worries little that market have more rare cards than common and uncommon.

 

 

If you are a veteran you should be able to invest a few bfp in some commons, also you don't need to fully charge the cards, just 1 copy of each card is more than enough..

oh my bad, didnt read correctly. Yeah I guess if you start late with the challenge the common cards get very rare.

I just checked the prices, so if you have to buy every card 1 time you have to pay about 250 bfp, thats what you get daily for playing 45 minutes not counting the quests.

That means the entry is very cheap and I guess you can always ask here if someone of the players can sponsor you 🙂

Quick question,

When you say "the Newbie Card Pool. By participating, players of Bronze or Silver Rank will automatically receive an uncommon random card" how long would one wait for the automatic-ness of this feature?

automatic means in this case I will send them out by hand 😉

 

(when the contest is done)

Replays and how it was won

Here are the Replays of the Top 3 Runs: CCC6_07.51.4_RadicalX.pmv CCC6_8.24.4_Wanky.pmv CCC6_08.33.4_Trando.pmv

Behind the spoiler, you find a written description of how the top time was achieved:

Spoiler


A really fast run is all about energy. Starting from the end, the question is: How much energy do you need to kill the boss? If you need 10 Thornbarks or Frenzys to kill him, there is no need to hurry in the first part – you have to wait anyway. If you require way less energy, it's worth optimizing the first two parts of the map too. One of the ways to optimize your energy is to use the Amii Healing Stone instead of Surge of Light. A super quick way of getting to it to activate and wait out the first mine, but running into the second mine to access the stone because your units get hurled toward it.
 

2068809875_CCC6radi1.jpg.bd4df4c15c88e51f8ad397693295a758.jpg

On the wall, it is preferable to use the Burrowers Acid spit ability, it unmans archers, and they get damaged by the earthquake. Also, it might be counter-intuitive that you man the wall just for the quest and instantly destroy it – since it binds energy, and the mandatory Stone of Torment needs no help with the wave. You are able to just walk by them and proceed to the bigger camp.

1996016685_CCC6radi2.jpg.c4efdf80e0d43a19d6fc77895b10a622.jpg

Three burrowers, Rogan and the (now frenzied) Forsaken are enough with the help of Surge of Light. All but one burrower are killed, and after the cutscene you can tunnel to the orb and get Rogan and the Burrower healed at the tunnel. Both together are used to pass the enemies waiting for you, and with good timing the T3 is up just in time to spawn a Mutating Frenzy.

581370455_CCC6radi5.jpg.46df975f097d6c3914bfa1733ec0d2c2.jpg

So, how many do you need to kill the boss? RadicalX answer to this was: only one. Very few enemies will follow you to the healer, and you instantly start stacking the Deathwish ability, so the Frenzy deals more and more damage. The Master requires some time to adjust and heal himself, but within that time he is already dead.

But why is one Frenzy enough for the boss? Because this deck is stacked with the perfect tank – Skeleton Warriors. Besides their armor ability, they are a squad of six, and melee enemies without real splash damage have to kill them off one by one, even if their health is depleted. And if they are healed, their numbers are replenished. So if you get your Deathwish and spawn timing right – which is a hell of a task – you can kill the Ragged King just with one Frenzy and one Skeleton Warrior squad. Of course, they both die seconds after… but Moon has ready determined that you know what it means to be a Skylord.
 

There are a lot of other small tricks that other Skylords used – like extra use of Stone of Torment or Skeleton Warriors, pulling the enemies at the wall early, so they don't man the walls, pulling the Boss toward your troops to save time,
 


In conclusion

First and foremost, I'd like to thank again all those who helped with this event, especially @LEBOVIN for putting so many hours into the map. It has been the biggest CCC so far, and spiraled out of control in terms of size more and more and more. Hopefully I made no mistake in taking entries in, entering times, checking and sorting, sending out prizes... CCC#7 is scheduled in a few days and will be much smaller.

Of course, I'd like to thank the generous sponsors for all the prizes they gave: @TheBigWet, @Metagross31, @Donaar, @Trando, @Sylar, @Kemek, @Prajoss, @Vysnia and the Skylords Reborn Team. This is also the last contest that the immense collection of @Simplifying has sponsored, and I hope he fares well in his life outside the game.

If you have a crappy idea for future CCC's you may share and discuss that with me, maybe I host your idea, or you can host your own Crappy Contest! Feel free to contact me anytime. If you want to discuss or host a non-crappy contest, contact our Event Managers @Minashigo Hiko and/or @Metagross31. They are super supportive and will help you to organize your event!

Can we know at least how many players participated in the contest?
:money:

That will be revealed in the stream too, together with the code.

(and after that there will be the winners post here as always, which I am already preparing)

Did we need to watch stream to get the code, or it will be posted here anyway?

Of course it will be posted here too, the result post will go online during the stream, containing all information.

I'm super hyped that Prajoss makes a reveal stream, but it would be weird to force that upon everybody 🙂

Now that event is over and I watched Prajoss stream, it bought up some memories from 12 years ago. I had a buddy and we did all kind of fun runs. Luckily one other community member back then was interested our run on Convoy where we killed boss with Mutating frenzy.

So if you didn't get enough MF maniac, here is some blast from the past. Not really a speedrun, but fun run, abusing all kind of mechanics. 😉

 

Today people solo it much faster, but back then we didnt know all tricks what is knows now. We just set some goal and when we did succeed we stopped doing it and moved to some other madness, like Insane God, Satanael/Snapjaws spam. 😉

 

What comes to event, graz to all winners and also @Kapo salute to you, that map did look interesting. Sadly I was missing too many key cards and was busy on other stuff so I had no time to take a part of this event.
