[Not a bug] Class Trial problem - Mechanist

I’m sure this will be marked " not a bug", like nearly everything reported, but I’ll enter it anyway.

For some ungodly reason, this week, the Class Trial, has 2 copies of fighting Queen Titania and gang.
Not sure why or how this happened, but I’ve never seen a duplicate Class Trial battle leader and team before now.

Mobile app, Android OS, yeah no idea of what version I’m on now ( don’t really care).

What was i expecting? 5 unique battles.

What happened? I got 4 unique battles and a duplicate.

How often does this happen? Has not happened before that I’m aware of.

When did it begin happening? Just this week 5/18/2023 Class Trial (Mechanist)

Was this a once-off bug or has it been a consistent issue? Once off event i believe

Does it only happen after doing a particular game mode? Yes, its only been in this Class Trial.

This actually has happened before, but it is quite rare.

Part of what makes it so noticeable is that this mode has maybe 6 (7?) enemy teams total, and they’re never shuffled between tiers so it already feels repetitive as is.

Hello :slight_smile:

This is not a bug as Queen Titania is still considered to be a “boss” for the Class Trials, and although it is very unlikely that having duplicate troops will occur, it will not break the battle/game.

I hope this clarifies things :slight_smile:

It does break the enjoyment of the game mode however. Class Trials are super redundant since players do the exact same battles 5-100+ times in less than 24 hours. Allowing RNG/AI to duplicate the same matches more than once makes an already redundant game mode 20% more redundant.


No it doesnt bream the battle, and it doesnt break the game.

But y’alls definition of a bug needs fixing.

If it isn’t supposed to happen, AND IT DOES ANYWAY, something is WRONG and it should be fixed.

It’s really rather simple.

But, it was as i anticipated, declared to be not a bug.


Is there maybe something wrong with the way these teams are decided? The last time this happened (see linked topic) the duplicates were ALSO on teams #2 and #4. And if this was intentional (i.e. no duplicate prevention) then we might expect this to happen a LOT more often than simply twice ever … we’d be reporting it almost every week.

the math

There are these teams to pick from:

  • Chief Stronghorn
  • Emperor Korvash
  • Gar’Nok
  • Hyndla Frostcrown
  • King Highforge
  • King Mikhail
  • Queen Mab
  • Queen Titania

Probability of picking 5 of 8 unique teams completely by random:
= P(8,5) / 8^5 = 6720/32768 =~ 20.5%

Inverse probability (i.e. at least one duplicate occurs):
= (100% - 6720/32768) =~ 79.5%

Also, please consider the request that after completing a tier of 5 battles, the Class Trial should reroll which teams are available to fight.
