    I'm guessing it requires some kind of maintenance that doesn't bring any revenue...for them...

    This is the thing...it doesn't bring in any DIRECT revenue--true--meaning that they don't charge for the event.

    HOWEVER, I am spending money bettering my monsters in preparation for the event. So they are still making money on the event!

    Same thing with wars. They are free to participate but people still spend $$ to get better monsters to be better at wars. Should they ditch wars also?

    Well it looks like this is the final edition of Battlegrounds.

    I'm very disappointed because the wars and Battlegrounds are the only reason I play this game. These are the only aspects of the game that require any strategy. Everything else (like the races) is just a matter of throwing money into the pot. The more money you throw in, the more stuff you get back but with ZERO strategy involved. Yawn.

    I'm curious to see what they replace Battlegrounds with. I like Battlegrounds because it's the only part of the game which gets you to use monsters other than your top tier monsters. Basically, we all have just a hand full of monsters that we use. The rest are just sitting around collecting dust. Battlegrounds gave us a reason to improve not just our top-tier monsters but our 2nd tier monsters as well.

    Are they replacing BG with something similar or is it going to be just another race or maze type of spending competition?

    @callumarachnoid said in Team Battlegrounds Feedback:

    Is anything going to be done to improve this event leads and co’s really need more power to be able to set up battle grounds properly, here my team is again with couple new players just putting what they want in and not listening to instructions leads or co’s should be able to remove weaker set up teams others wise the players will just be removed after battle grounds anyway @carlos give leads power to run team because right now there are no point to leads or co’s.

    Most teams have this issue to one degree or another. There are a couple on our team that drive me nuts. Remember, there are children playing this game. They just aren't going to get it! It's all about recruiting the smartest players you can.

    Not sure if giving the Lead/Co-leads more power to just set up everything in BG is the answer. Then it becomes more a game of your Lead vs their Lead rather than an entire team effort.

    For me, I've noticed the CDA triggering a special attack has crept back into the game.

    But, of course, only my opponent gets the special attack when I CDA them. I never get a special when my cool downs get activated.

    The problem is they are immune to all status effects, so even guard down and CDA don't work on them. It means my Al Canine is pretty much useless, and Kaori gets wiped 1st round since CDA doesn't deny them.

    CDA doesn't work on artifacts?

    When did that change?

    I've always used CDA on timerion and flamerion. It's always been the best way to stop them since CDA isn't a status effect.

    I like this event but I liked the old version better.

    I've never spent a dime on it and I still have fun.

    However I don't understand why anyone would actually spend gems to shuffle level 10 runes around for this? Why? The rewards aren't worth spending on and the rewards are much worse now that they got rid of the individual rewards.

    This used to be a great way to get some orbs, but now I've lost most of those with this battleground despite my great individual score within our team.

    @testcyp said in Epic wars, some people got no chill:

    @grnxnham the reason everyone hates them is because it cost 100-200 gems each monster to equip and remove level 10 runes and the lower the monster the more powerful relics become since they are balanced for legendary monsters. The novelty wears off really, really quick

    Aaaahhh...now I see. The rune thing doesn't apply to us. Very few people on our team have all level 10 runes on their monsters and I don't think anyone spends gems to swap them out. We just play with whatever runes our epics have. Most of the other teams that we are up against at our level appear to do the same.

    Winning one war isn't worth 300-600 gems, is it? Isn't that like spending $20 to earn $5?

    I don't like the warming up of best moves and think its a pointless addition. If I pick my monsters they should have the skillset that I have picked straight away

    Agree here.

    I can't figure out the point of the warm up of best moves? In my last battle, a couple of my monsters had only one attack choice for the first turn--their weakest attack. I had no idea which monsters were going to be nerfed for the early turns until I tried them out. Some monsters lose more attacks than others. Again, why?

    I see real time friendly battles as a way to test monsters for other aspects of the game like PVP or the dungeons. But with the warming-up-of-best-moves feature, it's now worthless for testing because you can't compare apples to apples.

    YES!

    You guys are correct! Thank you!

    When opening chests, if it's two relics or runes that are the same, it will group them together even during chest opening.

    I used the "open all" option when I had two level 3-5 rune chests to open. It appeared to open only one chest and I got a single level 4 speed rune but it had the (2) next to it, indicating I actually got two level 4 speed runes. Tricky because you have to look close to notice it.

    I thought that seemed too dumb to be true!

    @vargranger said in Losing Chests When "Open All" Selected. Intended?:

    @grnxnham is it possible that you got duplicate relics? If you get duplicates they stack on top of each other. I think it normally says 1 widow armour. But if you get 2 widows armour they dont appear separately they appear as 2 widows armour. Same with runes. Lvl 3 strength x1/ level 3 strength x2. Gives the appearance of less but actually getting the right amount

    I guess this is possible but I was also manually counting each one of the relics as each chest was opening. I didn't just count the relics at the end of the chest openings. If you have duplicate relics, does the game also just put two relics together into one chest opening?

    Sounds like this isn't happening to others? I will test again and track very carefully.

    At first I loved the new "open all" option when opening chests. This is nice to have when you just got done watching 20 videos and now have 20 relic chests to open.

    I liked it until I started using it. Apparently you get charged to use this feature? I did a "open all" to 19 chests. I only got 17 relics. The other two just disappeared.

    The same thing happened when I opened 5 chests containing runes from the rune dungeon. I selected "open all" and only got 4 runes when opening 5 chests.

    And, yes, I am taking into account that you open one chest first. Then you select the "open all" button to open remaining chests.

    So is this intended or a glitch? Are we getting "charged" so to speak by losing a few chests when we get lazy and use the "open all" button?

    If it's intended, it seems like a fairly worthless addition to the game. Not wanting to lose any runes or relics, I will continue to open chests one at a time.

    I would not favor making it free to remove runes.

    Being part of a mid-level team, we encounter teams with a mixture of high and low runes. This makes the game interesting.

    If it were suddenly free to remove runes, everyone would purchase 9 level 10 runes and then just keep moving them monster to monster with each new war. I think it would be boring if everyone suddenly had all level 10 runes all the time. And, yes, I know the top teams have all level 10 runes but that is actually a tiny percentage of the player base.

    I don't think SP would make them free anyway since they would lose a lot of $$$ after everyone purchased the first 9 level 10 runes.

    My question is...when is the rune removal discount coming back? We used to get a discount occasionally for a couple of days for rune removal. It's been a long time since we've had that. Is it coming back?

    You get used to reading one negative post after another on here but this is a POSITIVE post!

    I love battlegrounds. It's my second favorite event after the wars. Here is my list why I love battlegrounds:

    1. It's Free! Everyone should love this part of it. No need to complain about it costing too much or about how "greedy" SP is.

    2. The matchups have gotten better. At least ours have.

    3. You get to use lots of monsters that are still pretty good monsters but are basically collecting dust because they aren't your elite monsters. It's fun to use some different monsters for a change.

    4. Rewards are good considering it's free. 200+ heroic orbs alone makes it worthwhile.

    This last matchup was a good one. The other team was very close to us in strength. They stayed just ahead of us the entire time until the very end when we were able to just barely pass them for the win. It came down to some strategy of whether to try to kill an island with fewer strong monsters or one with lots of weak ones. I'm not sure we have figured out the perfect formula for how to best strategize for battlegrounds but I really enjoy the battle of wits. I much prefer out-thinking/battling an opponent as opposed to events where you simply outspend them (yawn.)

    I hope that SP will consider having this event more than once a month. My interest in the game has waned recently but this event has revived my interest again.

    I would have posted this on another Battlegrounds thread but I couldn't find an active one.

    Maybe it's because it's such an unusual ability--applying a positive effect of triple damage while at the same time stunning an ally, but the AI uses this ability completely backwards from the way it should.

    In war, if you place Fenrir with two other monsters and only ONE of the two other monsters is immune to stun, that monster will NEVER get Rage of Fenrir used on it. Only the monster susceptible to stun will get Rage of Fenrir.

    If BOTH of the other monsters are immune to stun, the ability, Rage of Fenrir, does not get used at all except very occasionally on Fenrir himself (who is not immune to stun.)

    Fenrir will also use Rage of Fenrir a second time on monsters that still have triple damage turns left. IOW, Fenrir will use the ability on an ally. The triple damage lasts three turns. Then that ally won't get hit with Rage of Fenrir for a turn because of the previously stunned icon on them. Then the next turn Fenrir hits them with it again, even though they still have a turn left of the triple damage.

    It's like the AI is treating allies as enemies as far as this ability is concerned. It only wants to use this ability if the stun works on an ally. The triple damage part of the ability is basically ignored by Fenrir.

    I've tested this quite a bit in dungeons now, and my results have been consistent. Don't use Fenrir on defense.

    The races are the one event that is for BIG paying teams, period.

    If you aren't a big spender, it's best to forget about the races and focus more on the other events. This last race was about twice as expensive as previous races.

    I wonder about how much the total cost was for a team of 30 to complete 100 laps of that race? I doubt they could even answer that! Nor would they want to.

    Option 2 looks better.

    Every 48 hours is what some other games do without problems.

    I'm not sure why teams need time to "rest." I get plenty of rest in the 24 hours prep time before each war. It takes me all of 2 minutes to make sure I have the correct team in place. Then I sit and do nothing for 24 hours waiting for the war to start.

    But, yes, the more teams in the matchmaking pool the better.

    The current recent improvements have helped our team with matchups, however, it can still sometimes take a few hours to get that matchup. If more teams are in the pool, it should speed things up.

    @sam said in One step forward 3 steps back.:

    Everytime we get happy and hopeful about something, it is once again changed to the worse.

    72 HOUR CHALLENGE

    Team Battlegrounds
    This event was a breath of fresh air, it was different, it required strategy and team work. The problem was it was unrewarding compared to the effort that had to be put in , but more or less it was acceptable.
    Getting a diamond relic for the highest ranking was very motivating for those of us who don't spend crazy amounts gambling on relic chests.
    But now we are getting 1500 medal currency while a diamond relic chest costs 5000 in team shop.
    So we went from a diamond relic chest to less than 1/3 of its cost and also gone are the talany cells, while also making the event harder by not allowing using attack monsters except once.

    again why are we going backwards??

    I was very happy with this event. You really can't compare rewards from a free event to the event which used to cost lots of gems. Of course the rewards went down when it became free.

    I really didn't spend much time on this event. I didn't spend any time analyzing every team in every battleground. I just plopped a denier, attacker, and someone else together over and over again. It didn't take long.

    It was fun attacking with monsters and combinations that I never use in wars because they aren't my "elite" monsters.

    Our team won this time (barely) for the first time ever. The matchup was good this time. In the past, we were hugely outmatched by our opponent.

    Looking forward to the next battleground. I really wish this event happened more than once per month.

    Is it okay to sell your Rank 5 uncommon or do you lose credit in the books if you get rid of them?

    So let's say you are working on spirits book chapter one where there are two commons and two uncommons ranked to 5 to qualify for the rank 5 rewards. You rank flawless and pyrook to 5 and then sell them before getting the two commons to rank 5. Do you lose the ability to finish that chapter or do you forever get credit for having the monster once you obtain them at that required rank? IOW, does the game "remember" that you once had them and you get credit for once having them for purposes of book completion?

    Is there ANY reason to keep uncommons? I've been playing the game for a year and a half and it's the only rarity that has never been used in a war or any other aspect of the game (other than book completion) in all that time.

    As usual monster storage is an issue, and we are always trying to come up with any way possible to free up space without hurting ourselves.
