Faction Tournaments - players choose the Factions

We are going to launch a series of 4 Dungeon Tournaments with a special condition - use only Champions from the Corrupted Alliance (Demonspawn, Undead Hordes, Dark Elves, Knights Revenant). However, it is up to you to decide which Faction to deploy in a particular Dungeon.

We would like to know your opinion about the idea. Which Factions you prefer to assault which Dungeon? And why?

To choose Factions for the Tournaments, please follow the link

I would only take part, if the rewards are worth spending time and energy to take part in those events. 

That means if there are 4*-chicken as highest rewards, if there are more brews, glyohs and silver than shards, books and gems...it is an immediate pass for me. 

Being restricted to single factions for a dungeons make it more difficult to beat the dungeon...and this should be reflected in the rewards. 

And to add to this...the rewards should be more than the effort. If you look at the Deck of Fate, you need to insert 100% effort to get with the highest luck possible 10% of the efforts as rewards. That would be an immediate pass for me.

Now to the factions:

FireKnight Dark Elves because of Coldheart and Mythrala. Possible Subsitute: Demons because of Alure

Spider: Demon because of many burners...substituted by Dark Elves

Dragon: Knight Revenants

Ice Golem Undead (Poison)

I agree with you, the reward should at least be a 4 Star chicken.


My choices and reasons for such;

Dragons, Knights rev for my Tomb Lord.

Ice Golem, Undead for my Rotos and Bad El.
FireKnight, Demonspawn for Alure.

Spiders Dark elves for ColdHeart.

Aehm...no...the reward being a 4* chicken is WAY below what I owuld expect from a tournament. To reach 2850 points (more or less) I would need about 2500+ energy....

That for a 4* chicken? Never....you would be better off running 300 times 12-3 with that amount of energy...

just calculating ny thumb...you would have at least 10 4* chicken made out of 1* champs by this...

Faction specific tournaments and events are necessarily geared towards late and end game players, and the rewards should be stuff they would want, not bloody chickens and brews. At least a Void shard or something like that.

Agree with this, aside from i would use DE for ice golem as i like to use zavia for the block revive and poison.

Also agree that the rewards for these tournaments are disappointing considering the additional difficulty.

I prefer them to be the most difficult faction for each, whatever that is.

That probably limits even further the number of people doing the tournament.

I won the recent faction fireknight tournament, not because i did that many runs but because so few seemed to participate.

Clearly, for me at least, it'll be the ones I can solo farm :)

If prizes on right are decent than this is good.  Otherwise I'd rather snipe some 6star relentless.

I haven't tracked to an insane degree lately, but the Faction only/special rules tournaments have been better than in the past. Void shards, awakening related rewards showing up = bueno.

Hmm, I stil am not that convinced of the awakening stuff. Mostly in tournaments and events I see mortal soulcoins...not even a complete mortal soulstone...and most of the time, you can just sell the souls you get from those. 

750 soul coins as the 1st-3rd reward in a tournament...meh...not my kind of reward...

I also didn't notice that the rewards in Faction only tournaments are better...perhaps someone has some screen shots to compare them?

There's been a few recently that have definitely had better rewards, including that Dragon tourney which had 5 Eternal Soul Essences as the top prize (2750 points I think?) last week.

Awakening stuff is (overall) high value. Might not be your cup of tea, but I think you'll see this sentiment echoed from those who are trying to make what at least amount to incremental gains in a late game environment.

I put high value on awakening stuff personally- brimstone has pushed my hydra up considerably allowing me to auto brutal.

But i dont remember 5 soulstones for a reward? i believe you :) but normally i see 750 coins or whatever.

Yes, we have different points of view on these rewards. 

5 Eternal soul essencens...I need 300 of them for a 6* soul...meaning I need a 5* soul before. So I need to do 60 of those tournaments (if counting on them alone..) so about 150.000 Energy to get a 6 star soul. (Not regading the souls 1-5). That is equivalent to about 1100$ to get one 6* Soul...

Okay..as you said..we have different opinions here. I also think, this particular direction of the discussion is probably misplaced in this thread..



Perhaps as a last statement:


I do not doubt the effectiveness of the souls...I am not happy with the number of coins/stones given as rewards and with the sheer randomness of the stone pulling...at the moment I have about 10 legendary souls ranging from 1-4* in the vault but I am lacking the legendary champs for them.

It is Soul essence....you can buy split souls at the soul market for them. With the Eternal soul essences you can buy 5* Split souls (100 Essences) or 6* split souls (300 Essences) [both refer to legendary souls]

It def wasn't 5 soulstones.

It was 5 of the essences, the currency you use to buy the split souls from the market.

Yes i misread the post :) 

I do value awakened stuff, but it might be due to my gambling addict nature, the first daiily task i complete is my iron twins so that i can get my daily lottery ticket
