Time After Time QuickMatch Crystal Champions

Summoners!

There are only two weeks left to complete the Time After Time quest. If you are missing some of the champs needed to get through a gate (or just love collecting exclusive 2* champions), you’re in luck. On September 25, the Versus Crystals in Quickmatch will be replaced by 2* Basic Unified Crystals that only contain 2* versions of the 25 champions needed to get through the Time After Time gates.

If you’re like me, and want to collect all 25, you can download this spreadsheet to track your progress. Best of luck grinding!

Alliance Quest Map 6 Lane Spreadsheet & Map

Summoners!

Update 8/12/20Download high quality revisions of the latest maps!

DOWNLOAD MAP 6 SETUP SPREADSHEET

Thank you to Cat Murdock for supplying updated Maps for AQ Season 7!

If you’re an officer in a Map 5 Alliance that is looking to step up to Map 6, you’ve probably got a lot of questions on how best to coordinate your battle group and assign paths.

You’re in luck. The spreadsheet linked above has a lane assignment sheet, maps, a playtime availability tracker, lane notes, and suggested counters for the mini bosses – in short, everything you need to get started.

While Map 6 does require some general counters on each lane, clearing it successfully isn’t as much about dealing with the hard counters (like Map 7) but understanding the availability of the Summoners in your battle group and assigning lanes accordingly.

My timing notes are written from the experience of an East Coast USA player, and will probably be most useful for North America alliances, but I do have suggestions on how to incorporate European and Australian players if you have one or two in your group.
