These are the guidelines and some helpful links for participants of Series 3. This post was started so the information can be edited into the first post as well as have an easy to find public place. I will be making several edits to this post until it is complete.
Series 3 Draft Order Spreadsheet
This is the list of the current draft order along with picks already chosen.
Series 3 introduces all the troops from 5 new kingdoms that haven’t been allowed before. The following links will let you see the troops from them so you can decide if they will work on your team. (Wild Plains is included here as well. Even though those troops were allowed, it still hasn’t been released on console so it’s included for completeness.)
Most of this is coming from the recruitment thread, but repeated here for clarity and ease of locating.
The format for this series will be single elimination.
Each person will have 16 points to spend on their troops. They must pick 4 troops.
With the inclusion of Mythic Troops, the following costs are assigned per troop picked and what their max level will be:
6 - Mythic (Level 20)
5 - Legendary (Level 19)
4 - Epic (Level 18)
3 - Ultra Rare (Level 17)
2 - Rare (Level 16)
1 - Common (Level 15)
New to Series 3 is the ability to Ascend your troops at the time you pick them. The point cost will be based on the rarity you want. So if you want a Legendary Goblin, say just that and it will cost 5 points. An Ultra Rare Valkyrie? 3 points. That Mythic Rock Worm? 6 points.
You must specify the rarity of the troop when you pick the troop otherwise it will default to the base rarity for that troop. Please do not forget because once the pick is made, it cannot be changed.
Regardless of their level and rarity, all troops will still be fully traited.
Troops with summons will function like they do in the game, complete with traits and bonuses. So yes, Dokkalfar is useful and Infernal King can come back more than once.
- There will be no Banner round for this series. When you pick your last troop, include the banner / color scheme you want. There are no restrictions and multiple people can pick the same banner if they wish. Any banner can be used.
Example: Hag (Ultra Rare), Orc Banner (Red/Brown).
- Trades. Trades will be allowed. If your pick is coming up and you’re still trying to work on a deal, please let me (@Shiratori) know so everyone else won’t feel like anyone is stalling. All trades must be approved so again when a deal is complete, send me a message with the proposed deal.
Points are tradeable as long as your point total remains between 14-18 (this includes the spent value of any troops you picked along with unspent points you may still have.)
- Currently the Draft will begin Wed, June 1 once the draft thread goes live, hopefully around Noon Central Time, but while that’s the target, don’t hold it in stone. Real life after all tends to have a way of rearing its head at the most inconvenient of times.
The draft order is as follows for rounds 1 and 3. It is reversed for rounds 2 and 4.
After your pick, please tag the next person with the @ function so they know their pick is up.
Because only 15 people signed up at the time admissions were closed, I am entering as the 16th participant. However I have a few restrictions placed on me since I am running things this time around as well.
a) I have the last 4 picks in the draft (61-64). This is so I don’t interfere with the contestants and just have the leftovers.
b) I cannot be an active part of any trade.
c) If all 4 of these troops are available, my picks will default to @Machiknight’s Name a Team contest winner: Meet the In-laws (Orion, Cthyryzyx, Nobend Brothers, Hag) all at default levels. Why them? Why not.
d) I am the 16th Seed when seedings are determined.
Upon reviewing things, this covers the draft information as well, this thread will be used for the draft. Thanks and good luck all.
