Guild Wars Event

Guild Wars Event

Guild Wars is a special time limited event in AFK Arena.

The minimum requirements for a guild to participate is level 2 or higher and at least 10 members.

1.16 Changes


In patch 1.16, the guild wars event had some changes made to it. Now it basically has the same rules and mechanics as the Legends’ Championship, except heroes scale to 160 and it requires Elite ascension heroes instead of Ascended.

  • Common heroes cannot be used.
  • All heroes will scale to level 160 and will start with mythic tier gear.
  • All union buffs will be active.
  • Faction advantages are disabled.
  • No artifacts or gear enhancements.

Everything is set automatically, you just have to choose which formation of heroes to choose. Gear does not have to be equipped.

Stage 1: Enrollment


If your guild is eligible, a guild master or deputy can start the event by pressing the “Enroll” button.

Any guild member can enroll via the “Join” button. Enrollment will take 48 hours to complete.

Stage 2: Matchmaking


Once enrollment is completed, the guild will be placed into a matchmaking queue until an evenly matched guild is found for the war. This will take 1 hour to complete.


Stage 3: Battle


After the matchmaking has finalized, the battle stage will begin. This is a best-of-five competition with the first round lasting 23 hours, and the following 4 rounds last 24 hours each.

Each player can have 3 different team formations per battle. They can only challenge players that are currently ranked higher than themselves.

Everyone begins with 3 battle tickets, and it requires one ticket to start a battle with an enemy player.

Rewards


The current rewards from this event are: Gold for Round Rewards, and Common Hero Scrolls for Victory Rewards.

Lore


Many millennia ago the God of Life, Dura and the God of Death, Annih once came to blows on this very land, both vying for dominance, however there could only be one victor. Now many years later the horns of war can be heard once again, but this time the champions of Esperia are fighting for honor and prestige!

    It clearly says ingame the points are based on the highest rank each individual player has achieved each round. Essentially once you reach 1st place, there’s nothing else you can do during that round to increase your points.

    Why am I not able to challenge anyone above me, while being at the 4th position?

    They need to make guild events where each guild competes against all other guilds for a numbered ranking based on guild performance. This would then result in prizes based on highest placement for the guild. Prize value is based on guild placement. Higher placement has higher value prizes. (Heroes, resources, gear, etc)
    Use maps similar to peaks of time or the Labyrinth (new maps with a new one each month or in a reasonable time frame that rotates over time). Structure it in a way that each guild member receives points for completing maps. Members points tally to create a guild point total. Event lasts 4-5 days. With a current ranking viewable during the event. Final standings determining prizes.
    Also, guilds should be viewable whether in a guild or not. Perhaps an overall guild arena ranking to show a guilds total arena points combined from all members contained in each guild. This could show a ranking for guilds down to top 50 or 100. Included should be the ability to click the guild and view members. Perhaps an icon to apply to the guild as well.

    My entire guild is confused on how the point system works, and we find that the rules dont explain it very well.

    Our guild started at 2400-ish war points while our enemy started at 2800-ish. Our guild seems to have stronger/higher tier heroes on average. So is the point difference there to account for the power difference or is there some other reason?

      Just a guess, but from what I can assess from our guild versus the opposing, is that since we have more people than them, we will cumulatively have more points . Even though the opposing guild may have better ranks than us on average, we have far more points than them from sheer number. Perhaps you get more points for more wins against the other guild, but I am leaning towards getting points for the rank you are within the round (hence why a guild number advantage seems unfair). Either way, the system feels pretty shitty.

    What do you mean by “Faction advantages”? The 50% dmg bonus from counter faction for excample graveborn->lightbearers, or 5 same heroes give 25% kind of? Or both?

    The first lot of guild wars, were broken, but atleast the were fun, the “new” guild war is still broken but now it’s not fun either =/ Your characters gear and level are irrelevant, only how many you have. All you do is make a counter team, automatic first place, every fight in it so far has just been musical chairs with first place, winner is whoever takes it right before the round end =/ what’s the point?

    Did I need to equip all my heroes with items for the Guild War?

    I’ve started out placed in the number 1 spot in my guild so I can’t engage in any battles (since you can only engage higher ranked players). Is this as intended? 🙁

    It was probably some sort of test to implement a similar feature down the line. Give them some time to maybe fledge out the matchmaking system or the rewards and ruleset and they’ll probably implement it

    Does this only happen once? My guild had only been in 1 guild war before and that was 2 weeks ago.
