    Perhaps it picks a random selection of characters from a given player to make a team? That's what it's looking like, anyway. There isn't an option to choose a defensive team in the Gauntlet.

    I assume that curent iron coin as reward its just during the beta test, in order to prevent unbalace adventage to the playres select to do the test.
    Iron coins are rewards for completing every battle (i.e. 12 iron coins per battle for 3 sands of war in stage 3), frontier coins would be the ranked reward... the reward you would get at the end depending on your ranking... #1 would get 150 frontier coins #2-10 would get 100 frontier coins and so on...

    I completed this battle at approx 01:08 CDT. (06:08 GMT) and I clearly won, but it just hung at this point.

    After about 5 min of waiting it changed to this:

    Finally after about 10 min I quit the game and relaunched. It showed that I still have not passed the level:

    This sucks because when you lose, your Toons get counted as used. Well, I already lost this board, but got it this time.

    These boards can only be played with Warrior or Magus Toons. SOOoooo now I'm not sure I can get past this board right now. (Going to have to work on what's left of the team.)

    Anyway, thought I would report.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I tried the gauntlet this morning. They fixed a bug already. I cleared the F.

    I like it because you have to be very strategic when you are creating your team for each PVP battle.

    Your team is cleared when you reach the next level.

    Nice new PVP gameplay.

    Edit: my concern is that some players have a big advantage because of the skill shard bug during last sacrifice event. With 500 skill shard, you can fully skill all your characters and have strong team for each level of the gauntlet

    I like the mode but I just cleared gauntlet B, which is the fifth one. It was pretty easy but it was five battles at five sands of war each battle. Thatís 25 sands of war. If these requirements arenít reduced, it makes it impossible to play in both PVP modes. Itís too time consuming to do both and you have to waste too much ironite for refills. It almost seems intentional to get people to waste their ironite so more money has to be spent to keep up. I know once itís out of beta we will have two weeks to get to SSS but if the SOW increases continue, it will be like 10 SOW for one battle. So either 10 hours of waiting or 30 ironite per battle which is insane. Donít get me wrong, I like the new mode and am shocked I was picked for the beta. Iíve been playing since day one and have stuck with it for two years so Iím hopeful they correct the SOW amount at higher tiers cause itís not worth the reward in my opinion

    Well spoken. Those are exactly my thoughts. Another option would be to get another currency. Not SOW or SOT, but SOG= Sands of Gauntlet? I sacrificed lots of regular Souls from LoL to get more SOW, but still not enough.

    Well, it is a company that has to do profit and also to pay royalties to Iron Maiden holding. We can complain but it is understandable that they want the players to spend money on their game.

    I was gobsmacked when I logged in on my phone earlier and saw I was in the Beta so thanks for that.

    I am not into Arena at all so when I saw a few weeks back that Gauntlet was PvP based my heart sunk. However, first impressions are that I really like it. Only done the first 2 levels so far but will look to doing a few more over the next few days. As others have said this is really going to test your roster and make you think about what teams you use. We all have a 1st choice team but you will only be able to use that team once per level. The 3rd level I am on now you can only use Warrior and Magus characters and I know I don't have 12 characters of those classes with full talismans on them so I am going to have to max out a load of talismans or borrow them off other characters.

    Two things already said I agree with - I think the SoW requirements are a bit steep and could do with adjusting a bit and everyone who benefitted from the Sacrifice bug will be pissing themselves now at all the Skill Shards they got as they can max out a shit load of characters now. I didn't benefit from that bug and still did really well out of it so god knows how many SS players who did benefit are sat on!! That isn't a moan by the way - more an observation

    Having now received beta access on my Ipad, I can agree with this. It is certainly a fun mode and I like the challenge of having to use different characters to fulfill objectives, however the Sands of War requirement for each battle is going to be cost prohibitive for the average player. SoW really needs to recharge faster, reward more SoW/have a higher cap, and the scaling cost for these battles needs to be reduced. Otherwise it further cements a pay-to-win strategy for the player, which is a definite turn off.
