    Seriously, what is this tinykitty? 8 creature tokens and win in 8? I understand that using loyalty or a vanguard can get you a whole 1 token but really?

    I assume that the biggest challenge here will be winning the fight before the 8 tokens are summoned, but there has been a serious focus on tokens lately and summoning 8 should not be an issue.

    Edited to add: This level of opponent is likely to have about 45 HP

    Second edit:

    @Brigby ; I just noticed it says "8 turns" instead of something like "Win the fight in 6 rounds" like in BotFT Part 1.  With all the other cards and PW abilities "turns" are equating to a single player turn and this would mean that its 4 rounds to meet the object which defiantly seems short.  Can we get some clarification (or a fix if needed) on that before it runs?

    Good question! I've passed that inquiry along to our QA team, and they'll be sure to investigate what its intended behavior should, and whether it's behaving correctly or not. I'll be sure to inform everyone of the results, once I get an update.

    Update: Looks like my information might've been a bit outdated. It does say "8 rounds" now for the Speed objective.

    @Brigby Are the Platinum rewards correct?

    I noticed the 300 point reward is listed as 40 Jewels while all other tiers are listed as crystals.
  • MahricMahric Posts: 6 Just Dropped In
    • Mightstone
      • Cast 5 or more cards with power 5 or more.
      • Reward: +5 Personal Score, +5 Coalition Score

    Should this be CREATURES with power 5 or more?

    After clearing a node, the in-game node recharge time appears to be 6 hours instead of 8 hours.  Which of the two is intended for this event?
  • soultwistsoultwist Posts: 201 Tile Toppler
    @Brigby this is intended to be 52 matches???
  • NickBKKNickBKK Posts: 43 Just Dropped In
    @Brigby this is intended to be tedious and driving people away from the game?

    Bolas fight 4.3 is ridiculous.

    None of the fights have been fun....but the Bolas one is a tonne of work...
  • CheeksMagundaCheeksMagunda Posts: 5 Just Dropped In
    This is really starting to piss me off. All three attempts on the first fight of the second node have shut the game down entirely after a Walker ability is triggered. The other nodes have done it sporadically as well. Doesn't make much sense to crank the reward requirements up if the fights can't even be finished...
  • beldalinbeldalin Posts: 7 Just Dropped In
    Yes, game crashes here with me too. I remember one crash with Domri 2.1, you’re right!
  • CheeksMagundaCheeksMagunda Posts: 5 Just Dropped In
    Equally frustrating - is Mowu bugged in 3.2? Twice now he's gone into an infinite-buff loop on me. It seems like a bug because he keeps growing after the opponent's turn is over, and does increasing damage on each defense when multiple creatures get blocked in one combat.
