An Event (Episode) is a limited themed occurrence which offers special rewards that include new and more powerful character cards and weapons. Early Events also gave x2 or x3 bonus when selling or upgrading cards.
Types of EpisodesEdit
There are four different types of Events/Episodes: Raid Boss, Campaigns, PvP, and Team Battle.
Raid Boss EventsEdit
This type of Event/Episode consists of encountering and battling powerful "bosses" alone or with help. Bosses are the event reward cards, given stats based upon a as many as 9 (Event Bosses Analysis ) levels (NOT to be confused with the levels of a character card). Players may select a bonus to their deck's attack power based upon the number of Battle Cubes selected. Many of the latter bosses in an event are too strong for one player to take down without a significant investment of Battle Cubes, so an in-game help request is available, allowing the player to ask for help from Allies and the player base at large.
Each episode is also targeted at a specific faction, and character cards of that faction using weapons of that faction are given a 5% boost to their ATK (20% if all cards in the 9-character team are using faction weapons).
A new type of event was introduced during the "Covert Operations" event.
They can also be called "Special Dungeon" Events
"In the new Campaign Episode you must bring your strongest deck of cards and fight your way through increasingly difficult waves of enemies and bosses!
There are 3 Episode Campaigns; Easy, Medium and Hard. Each Campaign consists of a series of battlefields and missions, each of which becomes tougher while you progress through the campaign. The tougher the enemies, the more points and rewards you earn.
Defeated enemy cards can be captured using Energon Nets and Energon Chains. Use these captured cards to improve your deck, level up your cards and complete your Cyberdex. Capturing cards also grant you more points and give extra rewards!
Each Campaign has an unique boss that is an Evolution Card. Clear the battlefields to reach these bosses and defeat them. Then you can capture the card and evolve the card up. On the Hard campaign the battlefields from 5 and up each feature the Evolution Card boss, and the higher the battlefield the higher the capture chance!
Your accumulated points total gives you a leaderboard position. At the end of the event, your final ranking grants you rewards." -From the in-game event description
Player-versus-Player (PvP) Edit
Introduced in The Omega Corps event during September to Remember pack, this type focused on pure PvP by allowing players to "show off your card collection and deck-building skills, and will be a proving ground to test your team vs. your friends!"
It is possible to attain ranks via successfully beating opponents. "Your rank will give you a boost to ATK power for your team outside of PvP Episodes! As your Rank increases, you will earn Rank Rewards and face off against more and more challenging opponents." As of Mockery Of Justice, the ranks available are:
- Scout (starting rank)
- First Scout
- Master Scout
- First Cavalier
- Master Cavalier
- LT. Commander
As one defeats more and more players in a row on a single battle ground, his\her Win Streak increases. The more it is, the higher the rewards for beating next opponent and the more points you get. After reaching Win Streak of 50, player can get a free Raid Card.
In the PvP event Land,Sea,or Air, raid cards could be received, via ruby bridges. Ruby medals can be obtained by achieving high win streaks.
A new type of event was introduced during the "Dark Cybertron" event.
Team Battle is brand new type of episode that combines cooperative and competitive gameplay mechanics: it allows you to team-up with other players and compete against other teams in a battle for superiority.
Unlike the other episodes, the Team Battle episode has a pre-registration period. 24 hours before the episode starts, you can sign up and pre-register for the episode. This means you are queued for team generation and can start participating as soon as the episode begins.
Players who do not pre-register can still participate in the episode, but may have to wait until enough players have joined to create two new teams that can be matched against each other.
Upon joining the episode you are assigned to a team. Your team is then matched against another rival team. Both teams must score as many points as possible by defeating bosses. The goal is to earn more points than the opposing team, and therefore win the day.
To earn these points, you scan for bosses in Missions and attack them using your Battle Energy. As soon as your team locates the boss, the boss' location is shared with your team members and all of you can attack the boss. Only by working together as a team, can you hope to defeat the super-powerful bosses and win the day!
Each day, any individual team competes against one other team, the goal is to become the winning team for the day. At the end of each day, the losing teams are disbanded and new teams are formed from all members of that day's losing teams. The winning teams from the day before stay together.
All players who are members of the winning team get a DAY WIN score point added to their episode stats. At the end of the episode, the number of acquired DAY WIN points determines which rewards you will earn. These rewards can be seen in the rewards gallery under DAY WINS.
If both teams have the same number of points at the end of the day, then both teams lose and no player on either team is granted any DAY WIN points.
The end of a day is followed by an interbellum of non-combat. The interbellum is a period between the battle of the last day and the one to come in the next day.
At the end of the interbellum, the losing team is disbanded. At the start of the next day, all players that were in a losing team are then assigned to new teams that will be matched up against each other.
The winning team stays together and waits during this period to be matched up against a new team. During this interbellum period, each player on a winning team can continue to use the Team Wall to discuss tactics and coordinate episode participation. A new wall is created at the start of the next day when new teams are formed.
Synthetic Energon supercharges any TRANSFORMER character that uses it, making him or her stronger, faster, and more powerful.
Synthetic Energon is a resource that is collected by scanning in missions. The Synthetic Energon found by players is added to a shared resource pool that benefits the whole team. The more Synthetic Energon the team collects the bigger the battle bonus multiplier for Team Battle boss fights. The battle-bonus multiplier increases the attack power of all your cards in all battles against episode bosses.
At the end of the day all Synthetic Energon is reset. Even if your team wins the day the collection will not carry over to the next day.
Combo Points are a battle bonus multiplier added to a single boss that is attacked by you and your team. By attacking the boss, you will add combo points onto the boss. The more combo points on the boss, the bigger the damage bonus becomes as players attack this boss. The more Battle Energy you use, the more combo points you apply.
To maximize combo points, your team must work together. You can only apply combo points to a boss if the previous attacker was another player. Any player who attacks the same boss twice or more in a row without having another player attack the boss between his attacks will not be able to apply any additional combo points.
The combo point battle bonus multiplier also has a maximum limit. Any combo points after maxing out the bonus will not have any effect.
Daily MVP RewardsEdit
Team Battle is not just about the strongest players. In this episode, all players can contribute to the victories of your team. Team Battle distinguishes and rewards these players by giving them Most Valuable Player rewards at the end of the day for various achievements.
- MVP MOST SYNTHETIC ENERGON FOUND - the player who finds the most Synthetic Energon for the team during the day will be rewarded for this at the end of the day.
- MVP MOST BOSSES FOUND - the player who finds the most bosses by scanning missions during the day will be rewarded for this at the end of the day.
- MVP MOST DAMAGE DONE - the player who cumulatively deals the most damage to bosses throughout the day will be rewarded for this at the end of the day.
In Team Battle, you will earn Episode Points based on the amount of damage you deal to a boss. Every boss has a total point value and the more damage you deal to a boss, the bigger the portion of this total point value you personally earn.
By defeating the boss, the team earns special Team Co-op episode points as an additional reward. These points are only added to the team's score, not the individual players.
Participating In The EpisodeEdit
- Find the episode bosses by scanning any mission.
- Select Battle Energy and battle the boss!
- If the boss is too strong, work together with your allies to defeat the enemy!
- Earn special rewards with Episode Points. Everyone who participates receives rewards!
Battling A BossEdit
After finding a boss, tap "ACCEPT" to engage in combat. The amount of time available for the battle depends on which episode boss you face. Battling a boss consumes Battle Cubes.
You and your team may battle a boss as many times as you like within the given time limit. If the boss' health drops to "0" before the time expires, the battle is won.
Rewards For AllEdit
If the boss is defeated within the time limit, everyone who participated in the battle receives Episode Medals. Additional rewards; such as more Episode Medals, Battle Cube Recharges, and Bonus Episode Points, are granted to player who accomplish the following goals:
- First Attacker: The first player to discover and attack a Boss.
- Finisher: The player to deal the finishing blow to a boss.
- Rewards For Joining: Everyone who participates in a Boss battle receives rewards.
- Friendship Bonuses: Defeat a Boss with enough players and everyone will earn extra rewards!
Rewards are only earned if the Boss is defeated within the time limit.
