    The Gauntlet - BETA DETAILS

    The Gauntlet rollout has begun!

    We're extremely excited to start rolling out the feature to our players.

    Initially we'll be starting out with a small, randomly selected set of our players on both platforms (iOS and Android).

    If your account isn't one of the first to have access to the beta don't despair, we will be increasing the percentage of players that have access as the test progresses and stability holds.

    **Please note that the selection process is completely random and by device, it's quite possible that you could have access to Gauntlet on a single device on a single platform or or if you're lucky you could be on multiple.


    What is Gauntlet? Put your team roster to the test! Battle through 11 Grades of Gauntlet, each presenting unique challenges and rewards to earn a place on our Ranked Leaderboard. The Ranked Rewards in the Gauntlet change every 2 weeks, so check back often to see what's new.

    You can learn more in The Gauntlet section of the in-game Help menu!

    IMPORTANT: The Gauntlet is still in beta so expect tuning changes and updates throughout your participation. Please be aware that we may switch this game mode off at any time.

    Furthermore, the rewards being offered during this period are different than what will be offered once Gauntlet is out of Beta. We’ll be sure to let everyone know once the beta period rewards make the switch over to the official Gauntlet Season rewards.

    Send us reports on any bugs you encounter as the beta rollout expands! We’ve created a specific forum thread for all Gauntlet related bug reports. Please post all information there. If you contact our support team, please ensure you state that the bug you’re reporting occurred in our Gauntlet feature.

    Up the Irons \m/



    Tuning Changes:

    August 7th, 2018: This afternoon we made a few tuning changes to the Gauntlet. The difficulty ramping in the Gauntlet has been adjusted to make it easier in the earlier Grades and smooth out the transition into the later Grades (Note: You'll only notice these changes if/when you enter a new grade).

    Let us know how you're finding these changes!

    This is just the first tuning adjustment we are making and will continue to monitor player progression and feedback as we work towards additional improvements over the course of the Beta.

    Basically you need to be in the King II tier or better of the PvP rankings to get to the Gauntlet currently. Assuming I understand "Players Ranked 10" comment. But who knows. They use "rank" in so many varying ways it's hard to tell.

    Everyone you encounter is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
    Treat others as you wish to be treated.

    That's interesting. You're aroun the 25th mark, I'm in the 80th mark. You didn't get in either?

    I think this particular matter the term "rank" means the player level, not the position in the Arena rank.

    To the devs:

    There are a schedule to add new players in the beta testing?

    I'm in the Gauntlet but I've never finished higher than Warlord III. Leviathan's post said it's a random selection of players, so I'm assuming it's a random selection of very active players.

    First impressions:

    - You'll be spending a lot of Ironite. Each battle costs an increasing amount of Sands of War (not Time) based on what tier you're battling in. 1 SOW to start in the first tier, then 2 SOW per battle in the second tier, then 3 SOW per battle, etc.

    - Hoo boy the difficulty ramps up quickly. The first couple of tiers feel like introductory battles. Very soon, however, you're up against all Lvl 100 enemies with Primordial, Eternal, and Eclipse talismans. If you see it in the Arena, you'll see it in the Gauntlet.

    - There's a "hardcore mode" aspect to it, as well. That bit about how you can only use a toon or Eddie once in a given tier? That includes if you lose. You could very easily find yourself unable to complete a tier.

    - You will need a very deep roster to get through this. Not just to cover the risk of losses, but you'll get tiers where the classes of toons and Eddies you can use is restricted, like only Blue and Red. You'll need to win 3 or 4 battles for those tiers and your opponents aren't monkeying around. You'll want to plan out how you approach these battles and you may want to consider swapping in talismans from other toons just to make sure you're geared up right. As a rough guess, you'll need at least 6 fully-leveled, fully-sharded toons in each color plus at least 2 fully-leveled, fully-sharded Eddies in each color.

    - You will need to write down all of your Eddies and toons, including whether or not they're fully-sharded and what talismans they have. It will be crucial for making team decisions for each battle.

    - It's fun. It's a good mental challenge to decide on your teams for each battle. The stakes are higher with the hardcore feel of it. You definitely have to use a lot of your toons and you get some fun matchups.

    Fudjo, thanks for the info!
    How about the rewards? Are the Iron Coins worth it?
    How does the ranking system works?
