2p PvE Contest - Through Ice and Flames

Recommended Posts



Hello Skyladies and Skylords,

Welcome to the Through Ice and Flames event!


21.04.2023 until 14.05.2023


18.05.2023, 19:00 CEST



Map Infos:


Lyrish Uprising (made by @Hrdina_Imperia) :



When Rogan Kayle was crowned as the new king, there remained several factions in Lyr that refused to accept this state of affairs. Taking advantage of this discontent, the rogue Dreadnought incited a rebellion in the city of Mraz, quickly overwhelming those still loyal to the new king and his Skylord allies alike. Now he is free to fulfil his true plan - to steal the divine power of the Soulstone, which resides within the city walls. This cannot stand!


An Expedition South (made by @Damo) :



Mora is a god no more - The Sundbridge Shrine was cleansed of the twilight curse and Mora's minions have been defeated.

But the star trapped in the heart of the earth, which the shrine connected to its brother in the boundless void, had already been tainted with this very curse. The worst outgrowth of this new infestation has affected a fire tribe in a distant land in the south, a tribe that worships the planet's core. It was not long before the curse spread beyond the tribe's members and plunged the whole land into darkness. A group of brave lyrish volunteers undertook an expedition south to nip this new outbreak in the bud.

Rules, Goals & How to participate

  • Everyone with an ingame account can participate in the event, there is no need to sign up separately
  • In this event, you will be offered not one, but two brand new community maps - both are 2-player maps
  • The goal is to achieve the lowest time on both maps
    • You could also enter by submitting a replay for only one of the two maps, but this would automatically disqualify you from winning any prizes in the joint leaderboard (more on that later)
  • There is no restriction on the difficulty of the map, but please note that any time on expert will always beat a lower difficulty, so Expert > Advanced > Standard
    • in example: 35:21 Expert > 28:15 Advanced > 19:34 Standard
    • An Expedition South only offers two levels of difficulty (Advanced and Expert), so any Standard run will also count as Advanced.
  • The deadline for submitting your replays is 14 May 2023, 23:59:59 CET

Banned cards:

  • Amii Monument 😉


How to play the maps:


To access the map for the contest (or any community map), select the blue icon in the far lower right corner:


Select the difficulty you plan to complete, then search for “An Expedition South” and "Lyrish Uprising" and click continue. The map will download automatically. After the map has downloaded, you will find it in the top section of already downloaded maps.

Submitting your Replays:

  • To save your contest hosts some headaches, please follow these naming guidelines: 
    • <"expedition"/"uprising">_<difficulty>_<Minutes>_<Seconds>_Players => in example "expedition_expert_25_09_Damo_Hrdina Imperia.pmv"
  • Please send your best replay(s) to @Damo either directly via the forum or on Discord (Damo#7332)



Leaderboards & Prizes

  • There are a total of three different leaderboards for this event - one separated leaderboard for each map and a joint leaderboard for the best time on both maps combined
  • Also there's one addtional task for each map, which is unrelated to the leaderboard
  • If you participate with more than one teammate, only your fastest replay will count for each individual leaderboard

The prizes for the per map rankings are as follows:

1st Place:           5 boosters per player

2nd Place:          4 boosters per player

3rd Place:           3 boosters per player

4th-5th Place:     2 boosters per player

6th-10th Place:   1 booster per player


The joint leaderboard, however, holds the really big prizes:

1st Place:             5 boosters per player as well as one Promo Juggernaut and one Promo Construct

2nd Place:            6 boosters per player

3rd Place:             5 boosters per player

4th-5th place:      4 boosters per player

6th-10th place:    2 boosters per player




Lyrish Uprising Leaderboard:

  1. Team Wrathgazer        - 19:25
  2. Team Juggernaut        - 20:17
  3. Team Brannoc             - 20:54
  4. Team Razorleaf           - 23:09
  5. Team Dreadnought    - 25:34
  6. ...

An Expedition South Leaderboard:

  1. Team Razorleaf           - 22:15
  2. Team Wrathgazer       - 23:08
  3. Team Brannoc             - 24:13
  4. Team Juggernaut        - 27:51
  5. Team Dreadnought     - 30:19
  6. ...

Therefore the Joint Leaderboard would look like this:

  1. Team Wrathgazer       - 42:33
  2. Team Brannoc             - 45:07
  3. Team Razorleaf           - 45:24
  4. Team Juggernaut        - 48:08
  5. Team Dreadnought     - 55:53
  6. ...


  • Team Wrathgazer wins (5 + 4 = 9) boosters per player for the map specific rankings but also reaches 1st place on the Joint Leaderboard and therefore wins an additionall 5 boosters per player resulting in a total of 14 boosters per player as well as the Promo Juggernaut and the Promo Construct.
  • Team Brannoc wins (3 + 3 = 6) boosters per player for the map specific rankings and reaches 2nd place on the Joint Leaderboard, winning another 6 boosters per player resulting in a total of 12 boosters per player.
  • ...


Gold Chest Bonus Task:

  • The team that opens all 6 gold chests in the shortest time wins an additional 2 boosters per player
  • Due to the fact that players tend to hate gold chest related event objectives, it is not necessary to open the chests to win boosters from any of the previous leaderboards
  • Since only your fastest replay with a given partner will be included in the leaderboard, only that replay will be used to determine the fastest opened gold boxes

Random Booster Draws:

  • For each map ranking, 8 boosters will be randomly awarded to players below 10th place on the leaderboard

Greetings friends. 

As the 14th day of the event is rushing by us, I thought it might be interesting to reveal a bit of information about the map attempts. 
With Damo's approval, these are the (intentionally vague) benchmarks so far achieved, based on received submissions:

An Expedition South - sub 20 minute run on expert
Lyrish Uprising - sub 30 minute run on expert

If you are still thinking whether or not try and compete for those juicy prizes, think no more: maybe they are waiting just for you 😉 Those times can surely go lower...

See you in the Forge!
