Active weekly events

Important: The guide is written immediately after the release of the official MSF blog. If something changes when events start in-game, we will update the content. Scopely is known to change things at the last moment often, so keep that in mind. Our goal is to prepare you for what is coming next according to the information we have.

Red Letter Day (February 26th – March 4th)

This is the last event for the February Monthly and it will serve as an unlock method for a new crucial MSF character – Black Knight. It will last for 7 days and to progress you will have to earn event Orb Fragments.

There will be 20 Milestones at a maximum of 160,000 Points.

Rewards will include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 87,000 Carnage Symbiote Vials – unlocked all upon reaching Milestone 14 at 39,000 Points
  • Tulip Bouquet (worth 25,000 Monthly Milestone Points) – Milestone 13
  • 40 Black Knight Character Shards
  • 15 Red Goblin Character Shards
  • 11 Red Star Orbs
  • 300,000 T2 Level 1 Ions, 75,000 T2 Level 4, 75,000 T2 Level 5 Ions
  • 175 L4 Training Materials
  • 10 Bio GT18 mini-uniques
  • Superior & Augmented Bio Gear
    • Bonus Rewards
    • 30 Black Knight Character Shards
    • 10,000 Elite 6 Credits, 2,500 elite 7 Credits
    • 1,250 L4 Training Materials
    • 1 Diamond Orb
    • 1,25 million T2 Level 4 Ions
    • 200 GT18 mini-uniques

Points will be earned by:

  • Earn 1 Cold Blooded Orb Fragment = 1 Point

This event will have a Leaderboard section that will award the top 1000 Players with Diamonds for Black Knight. Players Ranked between 1-25% will receive some Dark Diamond Credits. All other Rank rewards include Dark Promotion Credits, T2 Level 5 Ions, and Armory 18 Orbs. The bottom 2 Ranks will receive T2 Level 4 Ions instead of Level 5, and the lowest Rank will get Armory 17 Orb Fragments.

There will be 2 main ways to earn Cold Blooded Orb Fragments. The first is S.W.O.R.D. Satellite and the second is through the Web Milestone. Additionally, the Free Claims might also include Orb Fragments, and on the last day of the event, a special 1-day Blitz will be held which will award Orb Fragments each Blitz Win.

Our target for this Milestone should be Milestone 16, not only will we earn all the Monthly items, but we will also get 40 Black Knight and 15 Red Goblin Shards. The best case scenario would be reaching Milestone 18 which will allow us to grab the last 30 Black Knight Shards.

From the Web Milestone, we can get 1,000 Orb Fragments per day. That will translate into 7,000 Points for the whole event. The Web Milestone will also be giving out Points directly – 3,000 Per Day. So if we complete the Web Milestone the total of Points earned will be 28,000.

S.W.O.R.D. Satellite will be the main source of Orb Fragments. We can earn 18,000 Orb Fragments if we reach Floor 38. The Leaderboard section will also reward Orb Fragments but it will depend on the Rank you get. If you complete the 38 Floors mentioned above you are likely to end up either in Rank 1-5% or 6-10%, which will translate into 10 or 8 additional Orbs. We will use the 10 Orbs for our total calculations.

Our guide for each Satellite Floor will be updated shortly after the event starts to include helpful tips on how to defeat each Floor, you can find it HERE

Free Claims are harder to accurately predict, they can range from 2,000 to 7,000 Orb Fragments for the duration of the event. We will update this part once the event goes live and we have all the details.

And lastly, the 1-day special Blitz that will start on March 3rd. Last time we had an event similar to this we could earn around 2,000 Orb Fragments if we completed a full Blitz Rotation with 45-50 wins. Since this Blitz will be live for only 1 day the max you can do is 8 Rotations, which can end up being 16,000 Orb Fragments. We will use this number for our total calculations since it is likely that most players will be able to earn even more once we consider you can use Blitz Charges to get a few bonus fights in.

Adding in everything we know so far, the total of Points is 84,000 Points. That will be enough to Reach Milestone 17 and earn all the normal rewards plus some bonus rewards, i.e. 10,000 Elite 6 Credits. This still puts us 14,000 Points short of Milestone 18 where we could grab the last Black Knight shards. If the Free Claims are generous enough we might need to earn only around 5 or 6 more Orbs to get there. This might be doable if you have tremendous luck with your Blitzing or if you push for the top Leaderboard spots in Satellite, otherwise, you will only be able to get there by purchasing offers.

Jam Sandwich Web Milestone (February 26th – March 4th)

This is a repeating Milestone that will have a total of 7 runs. The only way to earn Points here is by spending Incursion Campaign Energy.

Rewards per day include:

  • 1,000 Cold Blooded Orb Fragments
  • 3,000 Red Letter Day Milestone Points
  • 2,000 Carnage Symbiote Vials
  • 150,000 Gold
  • 35 Silver Promotion Credits
  • 300 Elite 5 Credits, 100 Elite 4 Credits

This Web Milestone is very important for the main event as well as for the Monthly. You can earn a total of 14,000 Monthly Milestone Points and 28,000 main event Milestone Points.

To complete this event you need to spend 320 Incursion Energy per day. Normally, we get 144 Incursion energy per day so to get to 320 you will have to refresh the energy using Power Cores 3 times per day (150 Power Cores per day).

Red Alert Alliance Milestone (February 26th – March 2nd)

This Alliance event will be centered on Raids and you can also get bonus points for using Hive-Ming characters.

There will be 20 Milestones at a maximum of 750,000 Points

Rewards will include:

  • 35,000 Carnage Symbiote Vials – unlocked all upon reaching Milestone 16 at 386,700 Points
  • 1+ million T2 Level 1 Ions
  • 50 Teal Gear Raid Orbs
  • 525 L4 training Modules
  • 350 Dark Promotion Credits
  • 28 Basic T2 Iso-8 Orbs
  • 500,000 T2 Level 4 Ions
  • Teal Catalyst Gear
    • Bonus rewards:
    • 1 million T2 Level 4 Ions
    • 1,250 L4 Training Modules
    • 700 Dark Promotion Credits
    • 1 Diamond Orb
    • 500 Dark diamond Credits

Points will be earned by:

  • Play 1 Raid Battle = 200 Points [Limit 240,000]
  • Earn 1 Allied Supply Orb Fragments = 1 Point
  • Play 1 Raid Battle with a Hive-Mind Character = 200 Points [Limit 195,000]
  • Play 1 Raid Battle with Void Knight at 5 Yellow Stars = 400 Points [Limit 15,600]
  • Play 1 Raid Battle with Void Knight at 6 Yellow Stars = 800 Points [Limit 31,200]
  • Play 1 Raid Battle with Void Knight at 7 Yellow Stars = 1,500 Points [Limit 58,500]
  • The same goes for Gwenom and Red Goblin at 5/6 and 7 Yellow Stars.

For simplicity’s sake, we will assume that the Alliance is full (24 members) and active.

Hitting the Limit on Raid Battles is very easy, for that, every member needs to do a total of 50 Raid Battles or just 10 Raid Battles per day. Most Alliances will hit this limit fairly quickly.

Hitting the general limit for using Hive-Mind characters is also fairly easy, for that, every member needs to use their full Hive-Mind team in Raids 2 times per day. You don’t need to win, just to Play.

Hitting the individual limits for newer Hive-Mind characters might be difficult. Most of the free-to-play player base won’t have Gwenom and Red Goblin even close to 5 Yellow Stars and only a small percentage might have Void Knight at 5 thanks to the free shards from the Battle Pass, so we will avoid using the Points you may get from here.

The last set of Points will come from collecting Allied Supply III Orb Fragments from the Free Claims. The last event had 1,000 Orb Fragments per day and if that persists we will earn 120,000 Points if everyone collects all their Free Claims each day.

At this point, our total is 555,000 Points. This will be enough to reach Milestone 18 and collect all the normal rewards. To get to Milestone 18 you will need another 25,000 Points and if some players from your Alliance have a couple of the new Hive-Mind characters at higher Yellow Stars you might be able to reach this.

Radiated Physiology Quick Rumble (March 1st – March 3rd)

The trait for this QR is Gamma.

Rewards will include:

  • 9,910 Carnage Symbiote Vials
  • 10 Blitz Orbs
  • 300 T2 Ability Materials
  • 350 T3 Ability Materials
  • 150 T4 Ability Materials

Getting 2 Blitz wins with all Gamma characters at 7 Yellow Stars will be enough to complete this Milestone. 3 Blitz Wins if only 3 Gamma are at 7 Yellow, 5 Wins if 2 Gamma are at 7 Yellow.

Conclusion

Events of this last week will net us around 170,000 Points, bringing our total Points count from events only to 425,000 Points. We also receive 4,800 Milestone Points each day and if we got them all it will add another 100,000 Points to our total. And then there are also the Friday Free claims, which grant us another 16,800 Points, we will only have 3 of those for this Monthly so it will add another 50,000 Points.

If we sum it all up, we are only getting around 575,000 Points, which is 25,000 Points short of the last Milestone. If that remains as is f2p won’t be able to complete this monthly which is an aberration as for a long time now everyone was able to complete Monthly events if they were active and got all Monthly items and Free claims. It leads us to believe that there is still a missing piece of the puzzle, maybe another way to earn some more Points will be presented later, before the Monthly ends.

The previous monthly event had some issues where a lot of players had a tied score and not everyone received just Rank rewards, this was fixed since they sent out the correct rewards later. Maybe they want to avoid a repeat of that and will introduce a way to randomly earn more Milestone Points. When we find out more we will update this page.

Paint The Town Red (February 19th – February 26th)

Quick Summary:

  • Do 15 Raid Battles daily, win all Crucible battles, use all Superior Six characters 3 times, collect all Free Claims, and open all Ruby Red Orbs = Milestone 16. Will receive all Monthly Items, 35 Red Goblin shards, and more.

Breakdown

The second Main event of the February Monthly will be a three-pronged mission that will require battling in Crucible, opening Event Orbs, and spending Power Cores. The event will last for 7 days.

There will be 20 Milestones at a maximum of 120,000 Points.

Rewards will include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 79,000 Carnage Symbiote Vials – upon reaching Milestone 11 at 28,100 Points
  • Cupid’s Bow & Arrow (worth 21,400 Monthly Milestone Points) – Milestone 13 at 33,700 Points
  • 35 Red Goblin Character Shards
  • 700 L4 Training Materials
  • 150 Dark Promotion, 250 Gold Promotion, 300 Silver Promotion Credits
  • 5,000 Elite 6 Credits
  • Superior & Augmented Tech Gear
    • Bonus Rewards:
    • 500 L4 Training Materials
    • 500 Dark Diamond Credits
    • 5,000 Elite 7 Credits
    • 125 Gold Promotion Credits
    • “The Marvels” Costume for Photon
    • 1 Diamond Orb
    • 160 Tech GT18 mini-uniques

Points will be earned by:

  • Open 1 Ruby Red Orb = 1,500 Points
  • Win 1 Battle in Crucible = 750 Points
  • Battle in Cosmic Crucible with Superior Six = 75 Points [Limit 1,125 Points]
  • Battle in Cosmic Crucible with Superior Six at 5 Yellow Stars = 225 Points [Limit 3,375 Points]
  • Battle in Cosmic Crucible with Superior Six at 7 Yellow Stars = 350 Points [Limit 5,250 Points]
  • Spend 1 Power Core = 3 Points

This Event has a Leaderboard that will offer Diamonds for Green Goblin (Classic) to the top 1000 Players. Other rewards include Dark Promotion Credits for all ranks, Armory 18 Orbs for all except the lowest Ranks, T2 Level 5 Ions for everyone(except 2 lowest Ranks) and some Dark Diamond Credits for 1-25% Ranks.

The are a few ways to earn Ruby Red Orb: We will get 2 Orbs every day if we complete the Web Milestone, a few Orb Fragments will be included with the Free Claims, and through Offers. There will be a Special Offer each day where you can buy Ruby Red Orbs by using Power Cores, it will be limited to 1 purchase per day but the price is costly – 750 Power Cores per 1 Orb. So it is better to avoid this offer and spend those cores elsewhere.

ADVERTISEMENT

As of right now, we know for certain we will receive 14 Ruby Red Orbs from the Web Milestone. Free Claims are also set to 1 Orb per day, which makes it a total of 21 Orbs. This will translate into 31,500 Points.

Web Milestone also gives out Points for the event – 1,500 per day or 10,500 total.

We can win 18 Battles in Cosmic Crucible during this event, this translates to 13,500 Points.

More points can be earned if we use Superior Six on offense, with bonus Points for having them at 5 or 7 Yellow Stars. Hitting the first Limit will be easy, as long as you use 5 Superior Six characters for each Day of the Crucible. That will be another 1,125 Points

The same goes for hitting the other 2 limits but the main issue is that not all characters will be at 7 Yellow Stars, some might not be even at 5 yet. For the sake of averages, let’s say that most players will have only 3 Superior Six at 5 Yellow and only 1 (usually Doc Ock) at 7 Yellow. This will net us around 2,375 Points which we will include in our total calculations. Due to Global Crucible rules Symbiote characters are counted as Superior Six but this won’t affect the points for the event.

Last, but not least, we can also earn more Points by using Power Cores. While there’s no explicit need to use them for this event, players might use them anyway either to refresh Campaign energy in a rush to level up faster or to open Black Knight Orbs, etc. If players spend 200 Power Cores on energy refreshes each day they will earn additional 4,200 Points. And each Black Knight Orb they open will grant them another 2,025 Points. These points will not be included in our total calculations unless stated otherwise.

If we collect all the Free Claims, finish the Web Milestones, and fight in Crucible using Superior Six we will get around 56,625 Points. That is exactly enough to reach Milestone 16 and receive all Red Goblin shards. F2P can also reach Milestone 17 by a combination of having Superior Six at 7 Yellow and spending Power Cores, getting even higher will require a lot of Power Cores or purchasing offers.

Red Handed Web Milestone (February 19th – February 26th)

This is a daily Web Milestone that will be repeated for a total of 7 runs. Progressing will require battling in Raids with bonus Points for using Hive-Mind characters, and even more points if you have them at 5 or 7 Yellow Stars.

Rewards per day include:

  • 4,000 Ruby Red Orb Fragments
  • 1,500 Paint The Town Red Milestone Points
  • 2,000 Carnage Symbiote Vials
  • 110 L4 Training Materials
  • 5 Augmented Alien Spores, 10 Superior Alien Spores, 10 Advanced Alien Spores
  • 4 Gold Promotion Credits, 4 Silver Promotion Credits

To complete this Web Milestone, you will need to do 15 Raid Battles per day and this does not even include bonus points for using Hive-Mind. This is easily achievable if your Alliance runs 2 Raids at the same time, Greek(Alpha, Beta, Gamma) and Main Raids(Doom, Incursion, Ultimus)

This Web Milestone is important since it will provide a lot of Points for the Main event as well as the Monthly event so be sure to log onto the MSF website daily to claim your rewards.

Red Blooded Alliance Milestone (February 19th – February 24th)

Quick Summary:

  • If every member of the Alliance spends only the Free energy(Iso-8 and Incursion) and everyone collects all Free Claims the Alliance will reach Milestone 13.
  • If every member of the Alliance spends all Free energy(Iso-8 and Incursion), does four Iso-8 energy refreshes, and collects all Free Claims the Alliance will reach Milestone 15.

Breakdown

This is the first out of 2 Alliance Milestones for the February Monthly and it will require spending Iso and Incursion Campaign energy to progress. It will last for 5 days.

There will be 20 Milestones at a maximum of 938.000 Points

Rewards will include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 31,000 Carnage Symbiote Vials
  • 1,4 Million Gold
  • 690,000 T1 Ions
  • 5 Armory 18 Orbs, 35 Armory 16 Orbs, 6 Armory 17 Orbs
  • 5,000 Elite 5 Credits
    • Bonus Rewards:
    • 7 Million Gold
    • 115 Armory 18 Orbs
    • 35 Armory 17 Orbs
    • Teal Catalyst Gear

Points will be earned by:

  • Spend 1 Iso-8 campaign Energy = 2 Points
  • Spend 1 Incursion campaign energy = 3 Points
  • Earn 1 Allied Supply Orb Fragment = 1 Point

The calculations will be done with a full (24 members) Alliance in mind.

Daily Free Claims are set to 1,000 this time and if every member collects all 5 the Alliance will earn 120,000 Points.

If every member of the Alliance spends all of their free Incursion and Iso-8 Energy daily, the Alliance will earn around 208,000 Milestone Points.

If members spend 200 Power Cores per day refreshing Iso-8 Campaign Energy they will earn additional 115,200 Points. And if they spend 200 Power Cores on Incursion Energy they will get another 86,400 Points. Spending 400 Power Cores per day might be excessive for a lot of players, so it is best to stick to 200 Power Cores per day on Iso-8 energy.

If the Alliance spends only the Free energy and everyone collects all Free Claims the Alliance will reach Milestone 13.

If the Alliance spends all Free energy and does four 50 Power Core refreshes of Iso-8 energy, they will earn 443,000 Points, which is enough to reach Milestone 15 and get all the monthly items. Milestone 16 is achievable if everyone also does 4 refreshes of Incursion energy but that may be excessive and is not recommended.

Hidden Retribution Quick Rumble (February 23rd – February 25th)

The Trait for this QR is Secret Avengers.

Rewards will include:

  • 9,910 carnage Symbiote Vials
  • 10 Blitz Orbs
  • 7 T1 Ion Orbs
  • 15 Basic T1 Iso-8 Orbs
  • 5 T2 Level 1 Ion Orbs
  • 6 Basic T2 Iso-8 Orbs

It is still possible to complete this QR with just 2 Blitz wins when using Secret Avengers at 7 Yellow stars.

Conclusion

This is gonna be a busier week compared to the previous one, you will have to keep track of your Crucible battles, Raids, Iso-8, and Incursion energy spending, etc. We will earn around 155,000 Milestone points and with the help of Free Claims, we will end up around Milestone 34 of the Monthly Event by week’s end.

Roses Are Red (February 12th – February 19th)

Quick Summary:

  • Spend all Free Energy + four 50 Power Core refreshes daily. Complete the Web Milestone and collect all Free Claims = Milestone 17*

*Might require an additional 100 Campaign Energy at one point (depending on the amount you started with)

Breakdown

This is the first of 3 Events for the Seeing Red Monthly Milestone and it will focus on earning Heart Candy from Campaign nodes. The event will last for 7 days

There will be 20 Milestones at a maximum of 88,000 Points.

Rewards will include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 61,000 Carnage Symbiote Vials – upon reaching Milestone 14 at 34,000 Points
  • Valentine’s Card (worth 14,000 Monthly Milestone Points)
  • 10 Red Goblin Shards
  • 1 Mil Gold
  • 425 Dark Promotion Credits, 300 Gold Promotion Credits
  • 10,000 Elite 5 Credits, 10,000 Elite 6 Credits
  • 575,000 T2 Level 5 Ions
  • Augmented & Superior Skill Gear
    • Bonus Rewards:
    • 3 Mil Gold
    • 1,375 Dark Promotion Credits
    • 160 Skill GT18 Mini-Uniques
    • 3 Diamond Orbs
    • 500,000 T2 Level 5 Ions

Points will be earned by:

  • Earn 1 Heart Candy = 1 Point

Heart Candy can be earned from Campaign nodes, as of yet we have no details on the drop rates and this will be updated once we have more information.

There will also be a special Event Store where we will be able to spend the Heart Candy that we earned, it will likely feature all the usual stuff – character shards, Unique gear pieces, GT 18 mini-uniques, etc. Our target should be Milestone 15 at 40,300 Points, this will be enough to get all Monthly items and the 10 Red Goblin shards.

ADVERTISEMENT

If we complete the Web Milestone we will earn 15,000 Milestone Points for this event.

Free Claims are set to 300 per day, which is 2,100 bonus Points.

In a day we can spend 1108 Campaign energy if we do 4 Energy refreshes (50 Power Cores per refresh) in 7 days that total will be 7756 energy spent. Additionally, this event will overlap with the 2x Campaign Energy from Energy refreshes event happening on February 16th, which means that the total energy spent will instead be at least 8,236 or even more, depending on your time zones.

The drop rate is set to 4 Hear Candy per 1 Campaign Energy spent, which means that we will earn around 32,944 Heart Candies during this event.

Once we sum everything up, we end up with a total of 50,000 Points, which is just 300 Points shy of Milestone 17. You will probably get 100 bonus energy one way or another (level increase, Friday Free Claims, etc) so all active players should be able to reach Milestone 17 just by doing their 50 Power Core energy refreshes (and completing the Web Milestone plus getting all of the Free Claims, of course)

ADVERTISEMENT

Milestone 17 will get us all the Free rewards, including all Monthly items, 1 mil Gold, 10 Red Goblin Shards, 425 Dark Promotion Credits and more.

Getting to Milestone 18 will require another 8000 Points, which can be achieved by spending an additional 285 Campaign Energy daily, but that would mean dipping into 100 Power Core refreshes.

There is also a chance that players will be getting some sort of compensation as the event launched with a bug that would benefit players active at that time. It was quickly taken down (around 30 min) but there was still enough time for a lot of players to grab useful Free stuff.
The compensation we might receive for that could be enough to push us towards Milestone 18 and get that 3 Million Gold. We will update this page once we find out more.

Red in the Face Web Milestone (February 12th – February 19th)

This web milestone will run for 7 days straight and will feed points into the Main and Monthly events. To progress here we will need to earn War Credits.

We receive 1 Point per 1 War Credit and to complete the Milestone we will need to earn 15,750 War Credits.

Earning that won’t be difficult since we will have 3 wars to do so. As long as you are in an Alliance that is in a Gold War League, you can do it by completing 12 War Battles per War and collecting your War Win/Loss rewards. Lower Leagues will have to spend Alliance Credits to exchange for War Credits in the War Store if they want to complete the Web Milestone.

If you’re in a Platimun War League you will get most of the way there simply by collecting your War Win/Loss rewards but you will need a little bit more so might as well do your 10 free War attacks.

Once completed, we will receive 15,000 Monthly Milestone Points and 15,000 Main Event Points, as well as 1 Mil Gold, 5,000 Elite 4 Credits, and 5,000 Elite 6 Credits.

Cat Warriors Quick Rumble (February 16th – February 18th)

The trait for this QR is War Dogs

Rewards will include:

  • 9,910 Carnage Symbiote Vials
  • 10 Blitz Orbs
  • 280 T2 Ability Materials
  • 350 T3 Ability Materials
  • 150 T4 Ability Materials

2 Blitz Wins if all War Dogs at 7 Yellow Stars, 3 Blitz Wins if only 3 War Dogs at 7 Yellow, 5 Wins if 2 War Dogs at 7 Yellow,

Conclusion

The first week of the new monthly will be an easy one with the only thing that you will need to care about is spending your Campaign Energy. We will earn around 99,900 Monthly Milestone Points and once we factor in the Free Claims we are likely to end up around Milestone 21 by the end of it. That won’t be enough to unlock Red Goblin yet, but maybe the next Main event will psh us there.

Daily Free Claims played a major role in completing the last Monthly so ensure you are collecting all of them and have fun gaming.

Into The Gwenomverse (February 5th – February 12th)

Quick Summary

  • Collect all Free Claims, spend all free Incursion Campaign energy per day and do two 50 Power Core refreshes, play at least 8 War Battles each War.
  • + Arena Rank 1-10 = Milestone 16. Aprrx 200 Gwenom Shards
  • + Arena Rank 11-50 = Milestone 16. Apprx 180 Gwenom Shards
  • + Arena Rank 51-100 = Milestone 15. Apprx 170 Gwenom Shards
  • + Arena Rank 101-250 = Milestone 15. Apprx 150 Gwenom Shards

Breakdown

This is the last event for the Mechanical Marvel Monthly Milestone and it will also be the unlock event for Gwenom. This is an Arena-based event and it will last for 7 Days.

There will be 20 Milestones at a maximum of 130,000 Points.

Rewards will include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 78,000 X-Batteries – unlocked all upon reaching Milestone 10 at 30,000 Points
  • Neutralizer (worth 25,000 Monthly Milestone Points) – Milestone 12 at 39,000 Points
  • 75 Gwenom Character Shards
  • 200 Gold Promotion Credits, 150 Silver Promotion Credits
  • 10 Augmented Experimental Formula
  • Superior and Augmented io Gear
    • Bonus Rewards:
    • 30 Gwenom Character Shards
    • 20 Void Knight Character Shards
    • 240 T4 Ability Materials
    • 12 Augmented Experimental Formula
    • 120 GT 18 Bio mini-uniques
    • One Diamond Dawn Orb
    • One Diamond Orb

Points will be earned by:

  • Earn 1 Ghost Host Orb Fragment = 1 Point
  • Play 1 War Battle = 1,000 Points [Limit 24,000]

Our target for this Milestone should be Milestone 13 at the very least, this will ensure that you can unlock Gwenom just from the Milestone Character Shards and all the Orbs will just offer Bonus Shards.

Hitting the Limit for playing War Battles will be very easy since the event will cover all 3 Wars. So you can either do 8 battles per War for 3 Wars, or 12 Battles per War for the first 2 Wars, dealers choice. (Remember, canceled attacks won’t count so do not cancel) This will net us 24,000 Points

ADVERTISEMENT

From the Web Milestone, we can get 13,000 Milestone Points and 1 Ghost Host Orb, which is another 2,000 Points. Technically, we can get even more orbs but that would require an excessive amount of Power Cores.

The Points from the War Battles and Web Milestones are already enough to reach Milestone 12 and get all Monthly Items, so the Points we will be getting from Arena Rank payouts will serve as a bonus and will help us reach a few more Milestones.

Arena Rank Payouts are as follows:

  • Rank 1 – 4,500 Ghost Host Orb Fragments
  • Rank 2 – 4,400 Ghost Host Orb Fragments
  • Rank 3 – 4,300 Ghost Host Orb Fragments
  • Rank 4-5 – 4,200 Ghost Host Orb Fragments
  • Rank 6-10 – 4,000 Ghost Host Orb Fragments
  • Rank 11-20 – 3,750 Ghost Host Orb Fragments
  • Rank 21-50 – 3,500 Ghost Host Orb Fragments
  • Rank 51-100 – 3,000 Ghost Host Orb Fragments
  • Rank 101-250 – 2,500 Ghost Host Orb Fragments
  • Rank 251-500 – 2,000 Ghost Host Orb Fragments
  • Rank 500-1500 – 1,750 Ghost Host Orb Fragments

The sweet spot for this event will be Rank 100 or higher. As long as you can secure and maintain that Rank you will be receiving enough Orb Fragments to get you to our target – Milestone 15. There is some leeway also since getting aall the Free Claims allows you to have some spare Points.

Free Claims are set to 500 Orb Fragments per day, which will add us 3,500 Orb Fragments/Points to our total.

One Ghost Host Orb on average drops around 7,2 Gwenom Character Shards, this is only an approximation but it can allow us to make an educated guess as to the final amount of shards everyone can get.

Rank 1-10 – if you maintain this Rank throughout the event, get to Milestone 7 on the Web Milestone, and complete 8 War Attacks per War = Milestone 16. You will get all normal rewads as well as some bonus – 20 Void Knight Shards. You will earn around 18 Ghost Host Orbs = apprx 130 Gwenom Character Shards

Rank 11-50 – if you maintain this Rank throughout the event, get to Milestone 7 on the Web Milestone, complete 8 War Attacks per War and collect all Free Claims = Milestone 16. You will get all normal rewards as well as some bonus – 20 Void Knight Shards. You will earn around 15 Ghost Host Orbs = approx 108 Gwenom Character Shards.

Rank 51-100 – if you maintain this Rank throughout the event, get to Milestone 7 on the Web Milestone, complete 8 War Attacks per War, and collect the Free Claims = Milestone 15. You will get all normal rewards. You will earn around 13 Ghost Host Orbs = approx 94 Gwenom Character Shards

Rank 101-250 – if you maintain this Rank throughout the event, get to Milestone 7 on the Web Milestone, complete 8 War Attacks per War, and collect the Free Claims = Milestone 15. You will get all normal rewards. You will earn around 11 Ghost Host Orbs = approx 79 Gwenom Character Shards.

Rank 251-500 – if you maintain this Rank throughout the event, get to Milestone 7 on the Web Milestone, complete 8 War Attacks per War, and collect the Free Claims = Milestone 15. You will get all normal rewards. You will earn around 10 Ghost Host Orbs = approx 72 Gwenom Character Shards.

If you manage to maintain Ranks 1-3 for the whole Event you can get to Milestone 17, but that would require you to complete the Web Milestone which will cost you a lot of Power Cores. Milestone 15/16 is a very reasonable stopping point for this event. The amount of shards we will get from both, Orbs and Milestones, should be enough for players that Ranked 50 in Arena or higher to get a 4 Yellow Star Gwemon. Ranks 51-100 Also have a good chance to get her to 4 Yellow Stars with some luck, or at the very least close to it.

Unlocking Gwenom should be easy for anyone who can maintain an Arena Rank higher than 1,500.

Klyntar Drum Kit Web Milestone (February 5th – February 12th)

This Web Milestone will require spending Incursion Campaign energy to progress and the rewards will include Milestone Points for the Into The Gwenomverse Event as well as Ghost Host Orb Fragments, Catalyst Gear, and Training Modules. This Milestone will run for 7 consecutive days.

There are a total of 10 Milestones at a maximum of 4,400 Points and you can earn Points by Spending Incursion Campaign Energy. The ratio is 1 Point to 1 Energy spent so to complete the Milestone you would have to spend 4,400 Incursion Energy. Completing this would require spending 600+ Power Cores per day on Incursion Energy refreshes so we do not reccommend it.

Instead, we should target Milestone 7, which will ensure that we get all Points for the Main Milestone and One Ghost Host Orb. To get to Milestone 7 we will have to spend all Free Incursion Energy daily and do two 50 Power Core Refreshes.

You could also do four 50 Power Core refreshes – you will reach Milestone 8 and will get another Ghost Host Orb and some Augmented Catalyst Gear. But the optimal choice is to stop at 2, at least for now. Once we have the numbers for Arena Orb drop rates we will know for certain if the additional Ghost Host Orb will have any change on our final standings.

Tribunal Tech Alliance Event (February 5th – February 8th)

Quick Summary:

  • [All members] Complete 18 Crucible attacks and collect all Free Claims = Alliance will reach Milestone 16

Breakdown

This is the last Alliance Event for the Mechanical Marvel Monthly and it will require battling in Crucible and getting Orb Fragments from the Free Claims. This will last for 3 days.

There will be 20 Milestones at a maximum of 475,000 Points

Rewards will include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 36,000 X-Batteries – unlocked all upon reaching Milestone 20
  • 230 L4 Training Modules
  • 4 T2 Level 5 Ion Orbs
  • 100,000 T2 Level 5 Ions
  • 10,000 Elite 4 Credits, 10,000 Elite 5 Credits
  • 25 T1 Ion Orbs, 9 Basic T1 Iso-8 Orbs
  • 300,000 T2 Level 1 Ions, 250,000 T2 Level 4 Ions
  • 17 Premium T1 Iso-8 Orbs
  • 10 Basic T2 Iso-8 Orbs
    • Bonus Rewards
    • 40,000 X-Batteries
    • 12 T2 Level 5 Ion Orbs
    • 600,000 T2 Level 5 Ions
    • 600,000 T2 Level 4 Ions
    • 1,250 L4 Training Modules
    • 5,000 Elite 6 Credits, 2,500 Elite 7 Credits

Points will be earned by:

  • Win or Lose 1 Cosmic Crucible Battles = 700 Points [Limit 225,000]
  • Earn 1 Allied Supply III Orb Fragments = 1 Point

For Alliance Events our assumption is that you are in an Active and full Alliance (24 members).

This event will cover all 3 Days of the Cosmic Crucible week. Hitting the Limit will be very easy. For that, 18 members of the Alliance will need to do 18 Crucible battles. So even Alliances that are missing some members will be able to hit the Limit. This also means that there is no need to lose battles on purpose.

Free Claims can be set to around 1,000 Orb Fragments per day, which will end up being 72,000 bonus Points if all 24 members get all Free Claims.

If that is the case, then most Alliances will end up with or around 297,000 Points. This is enough to reach Milestone 16 but barely, so even if a couple of players miss their Free Claims the Alliance won’t reach 16 and will instead end up at 15.

Milestone 16 will get you 36,000 X-Batteries and all normal rewards.

Cyber Security Quick Rumble (February 9th – February 11th)

Conclusion

From this last week we can earn another 152,000 Monthly Milestone Points and if we add all the Milestone Points we earned this Month we will get to 723,000 Points. If we add all the Free Claims we can get for this Monthly (98,000) the total will be 821,000 Points. This will be enough to complete the Monthly event but if you missed more than 8-9 Free Claims you might not get there.

As it was with previous Monthly events, completing this one for an Active player won’t pose a problem and presumably, the next Monthly will be the same!

Symbiote Of The Spaceways (January 29th – February 5th)

  • All of the above will get you to Milestone 18, that will net you the last 25 Void Knight Shards and 30 Alien Spores
ADVERTISEMENT

Breakdown:

This Main Event will serve as a release method for Void Knight and progression through the event will be three-pronged – Spending Campaign Energy, Iso-8 Energy, and Blitzing. The event will last for 7 days.

There will be 20 Milestones at a maximum of 250,000 Points.

Rewards will include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 78,000 X-Batteries – unlocked all upon reaching Milestone 11 at 88,000 Points
  • Scanner (worth 25,000 Monthly Milestone Points) – Milestone 12 at 99,000 Points
  • 35 Void Knight Character Shards
  • 10 Gold Orbs
  • 100 Gold Promotion Credits, 225 Silver Promotion Credits
  • 10 Augmented(Teal) Alien Spores
  • 100,000 T2 Level 4 Ions
  • Superior and Augmented Bio Gear
    • Bonus Rewards:
    • 25 Void Knight Shards
    • 45 Augmented(Teal) Alien Spores
    • 9 Mega Gold Orbs
    • 1 Diamond Orb
    • 1,750 Dark Promotion Credits, 150 Gold Promotion Credits
    • 5,000 Elite 7 Credits, 10,000 Elite 6 Credits
    • 130 Bio GT18 Mini-Uniques

Points will be earned by:

  • Spend 1 Campaign Energy = 7 Points [Limit 56,000]
  • Earn 1 Symbiote Surfer Orb Fragments = 1 Point

There will be a total of 5 ways of earning Points for this event and we will break down all of them, beginning with spending Campaign Energy.

1. Campaign Energy Spending has a Points Limit set to it so we have a clear goal – hitting that limit. If we spend all of our Free energy and do four 50 Power Core refreshes we can spend 1108 Campaign Energy per day, if we keep this up then by the end of the event we will have 54,292 Points. This is a little bit short of the Limit and you can easily hit the Limit if you have more than 240 Campaign energy when the event starts or just by collecting the 200 Campaign Energy from the Event Calendar.

2. The Web Milestone for this event is crucial since it will reward you with a ton of Points. You can get 6,000 Milestone Points and 8,000 Symbiote Surfer Orb Fragments per day, this would add another 98,000 Milestone Points. And will also net you 28 Symbiote Surfer Orbs. Needless to say – this Web Milestone is immensely valuable.

ADVERTISEMENT

3. Spending Iso-8 Energy is another way of earning Points. Starting on January 31 and until February 2nd you can earn Symbiote Surfer Orb Fragments from the next Iso-8 Campaign Nodes: 1-4, 1-7, 1-10, 2-3, 2-6, 2-9. Farming these nodes daily will cost you 720 Iso-8 Energy per day, which is only one 50 Power Core refresh per day + all your free energy. The drop rate of the Orbs is 3 Orb Fragments per 1 Energy, which means that per day you can get 1 Symbiote Surfer Orb, or 2,160 Points. This will last for only 2 days so it’s not a significant amount of Points but another 4,320 won’t hurt. You could get more by refreshing the nodes, but that is not necessary. Depending on your timezone you might’ve had the chance to farm the nodes 3 times, in that case, you can add another 2,160 Points

4. Blitz Wins is another way of earning Synbiote Surfer Orb Fragments, but it will only be possible during the Tech Wizardry Quick Rumble starting on the 2nd of February. As per usual, Quick Rumbles only last 2 days so we will have a small window of earning Orb Fragments. Currently, we don’t have any information on the Drop Rate for the Orbs so check back on February 2nd for the update. You can use our list of Blitz Teams to have the best Win ratio – Blitz List

On average, we get around 50 Symbiote Sufrer Orb Fragments. Quick Rumble will last only for 2 days so we can conceivably do only 16 rotations. If you get at least 40 wins per rotation you will earn 32,000 Orb Fragments. With 45 wins per rotation, you can get 36,000; with 50 wins, you will get 40,000 Orb Fragments. This is only an estimate and you may end up getting more if you have lucky drops, or it could also be slightly less.

We will use the 45 wins per rotation scenario for our final calculations.

5. Free Claims lately have a mix of Orb Fragments and Milestone Points, 500 of each to be exact, so that’s another 7,000 Milestone Points.

Additionally, we also have a calendar that will reward 2,000 Symbiote Surfer Orb Fragments and 200 Campaign Energy.

This new way of doing Main Events is an experiment right now for the devs and it might be entertaining, but breaking it down poses more challenges, especially when we don’t have all the information available at once. For now, we know the first 2 steps – Spend your Campaign energy daily and Blitz Daily. If you do that you will certainly hit at least Milestone 16.

When we add everything up our total will surpass 200,000 Milestone Points, we will end up on Milestone 18 and get the last 25 Void Knight Shards as well as 30 Augmented Alien Spores and Gear, Dark Promotion Credits, Elite Credits, and more.

Herald Of Klyntar Web Milestone (January 29th – February 5th)

This is a daily Web Milestone that will repeat for a total of 7 runs.

To complete this Milestone you will need to earn 2,500 Blitz Credits Daily. We get 750 Blitz Credits from the Daily Objectives so we will only have to earn 1,750 Credits by getting Blitz Wins. This can be easily achieved by having 90 Blitz Wins per day, which is around 2 Blitz Rotations if you get 45 wins per rotation.

We can earn 6,000 Milestone Points for the Main event and 8,000 Symbiote Surfer Orb Fragments to a total of 98,000 Milestone Points for the duration of the event, which is a huge amount and half of that are Orb Fragments which will make unlocking Void Knight very easy.

To make things easier, you can use our list of Blitz Teams to have the best Win ratio – Blitz List

Isotope Innovation Alliance Milestone (January 30th – February 4th)

Quick Summary:

  • [All members] Spend all Iso-8 Energy and do four 50 Power Core refreshes daily and collect all Free Claims = Milestone 16

Breakdown:

This is an Alliance Event and it will center on spending Iso-8 Energy. Duration is 5 days

There will be 20 Milestones at a maximum of 575,000 Points.

Rewards will Include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 26,000 X-Batteries – unlocked all upon reaching Milestone 13 at 163,100 Points
  • 10 Gold Orbs
  • 350,000 T2 Level 1 Ions
  • 550,000 T2 Level 4 Ions
  • 8 T2 Level 5 Ions Orbs
  • 50 Dark Promotion Credits, 50 Gold Promotion Credits
  • 10,000 Elite 5 Credits
    • Bonus Rewards:
    • 3 Mega Gold Orbs
    • 18 T2 Level 5 Ion Orbs
    • 5,000 Elite 6 Credits, 2,500 Elite 7 Credits
    • 800 Dark Promotion Credits
    • 1,5 Million T2 Level 4 Ions
    • 500,000 T2 Level 5 Ions

Points will be earned by:

  • Spend 1 Iso-8 Campaign energy = 1 Point
  • Earn 1 Allied Supply III Orb Fragments = 1 Point

Next calculations will be done with a full (24 members) Alliance in mind.

In a day, one can normally spend around 1130 Iso-8 Campaign energy, that’s all your Free energy and four 50 Power Core refreshes. If all members do that for the duration of the event it will net us a total of 135,600 Points.

ADVERTISEMENT

Another important part of this is collecting Orb Fragments from the Free Claims. This time the total is slightly lowered – 800 Orb Fragments per day, which is a total of 96,000 Points if everyone collects all of them.

Summing all up, we get 231,600 Milestone Points, which will be enough to reach Milestone 15. We will collect all monthly items and most of the normal rewards. Getting higher than that won’t be possible unless we get more Allied Supply Orb Fragments from a Friday Free claim or other means.

Tech Wizardry Quick Rumble (February 2nd – February 4th)

The QR Trait is Darkhold. This Quick Rumble will also reward Sybiote Surfer Orb Fragments from Blitz Wins which ties into the Main event so we recommend Blitzing a lot, if you want to get Void Knight unlocked/ranked up.

  • 13,000 X-Batteries
  • 10 Blitz Orbs
  • 7 T1 Ion Orbs
  • 15 Basic T1 Iso-8 Orbs
  • 5 T2 Level 1 Ion Orbs
  • 6 Basic T2 Iso-8 Orbs

You can complete the QR by just winning 2-5 Blitz battles using Darkhold, depending on your Star Levels, but it’s better to keep Blitzing if you want to get more Void Knight shards.

Conclusion

This week will add another 142,000 Points to the Monthly Milestone, which will bring the total to 571,000 Points. If we factor in Free Claims as well the total will be closer to 630,000 Points, which means that by the end of this week, we should end up on Milestone 38. We are on track to finishing the Monthly Milestone so as long as you didn’t miss out on any of the events and kept up with your Free Claims all will be well.

This week we will also have a new type of Event, that is just a mix of the usual. This somewhat complicates the breakdown so to keep up to date you can either visit this page on the mentioned dates or join our Discord.

Blastoff To 100 (January 22nd – January 29th)

Quick Summary:

  • [Daily] Spend all Free energy, spend 200 Power Cores on energy refreshes, do 10 Raid battles, collect the Free Claims = Milestone 13, All monthly items, and more.

The Next Main event is a big one for the MSF since it launches alongside the Level Cap increase. The main focus will be spending Campaign Energy and earning special currency which we can spend in the Event Store. This event will last 7 days.

There will be 20 Milestones at a maximum of 175,000 Points.

Rewards will include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 78,000 X-Batteries – unlocked all upon reaching Milestone 11 at 78,900 Points.
  • Bandolier (worth 40,000 Monthly Milestone Points) – Milestone 13 at 87,700 Points
  • 5,000 Elite 4 Credits, 5,000 Elite 5 Credits
  • 350 Silver Promotion Credits, 125 Gold Promotion Credit, 50 Dark Promotion Credits
  • 150 L4 Training Modules
  • 1,000 Diamond Dawn Orb Fragments
  • 4 Armory 18 Orbs
  • 25 Armory 16 Orbs, 5 Armory 17 Orbs
  • Gear
    • Bonus Rewards
    • 1,850 Dark Promotion Credits
    • 3 Diamond Orbs
    • 1,750 L4 Training Modules
    • 38 Armory 18 Orbs
    • 325 Gold Promotion Credits
    • 10,000 Elite 5 Credits, 5,000 Elite 6 Credits, 2,500 Elite 7 Credits

Points will be earned by:

  • Collect 1 Century Credit = 1 Point

This event will have a Leaderboard where the first 1,000 Players will earn Diamonds for Nova (up to 3 Diamonds for Ranks 1-50). Ranks 1-3% through 11-25% will get Diamond Dawn Orbs instead. Other rewards include Dark Promotion Credits and T2 Level 5 Ions. The lowest Ranks will instead get Gold Promotion Credits and T2 Level 4 Ions.

There will be at least 3 ways to collect Century credits and earn Points toward the Milestone this way. The first is using Campaign Energy on select nodes, the second is through the Web Milestone and the third way is through Free Claims. (Although the Free Claims are unconfirmed yet and they may just offer Milestone Points instead) And, as usual, there will be Offers you can buy to progress easier.

The Web Milestone will bring us a total of 38,500 Milestone Points, from which only 17,500 are Century Credits that can be spent in the Event Store.

We get 200 Century Credits and 500 Milestone Points per day. Which will end up being 4,900 Points total.

For events that require spending Campaign Energy, it is recommended and expected of us to spend 200 Power Cores on Energy refreshes daily. Normally this (in tandem with other means of earning points, Web Milestone, Free Claims) will be enough to reach the Monthly Item, which is also our target – Milestone 13.

Doing the above you can spend 1108 Campaign Energy per day (all free energy, 3 free refreshes from daily objectives, web milestone, and four 50 Power Core refreshes). All campaign nodes drop 6 Century Credits per 1 Campaign energy spent, which means that by the end of the event, we will have 46,536 Points.

If we add everything up our total gets to 89,936 Points. This is enough to get to Milestone 13 and collect all the Monthly items and some other rewards. During the first couple of hours of the event, the drop rate for the Centure Credits was wrong so we will probably also have some form of compensation which either can push us a bit higher or can allow you to skip a few energy refreshes.

Level Liftoff Web Milestone (January 22nd – January 29th)

This Web Milestone will be a repeating one, it will run daily for a total of 7 times.

Completing this is extremely easy, all you need to do is Play 10 Raid Battles per day. This will net you 3,000 Blastoff To 100 Milestone Points and 2,500 Century Credits per day, or a total of 21,000 Milestone Points and 17,500 Century Credits throughout the event. The only important thing is to log in daily to claim the rewards.

Machines Of War Alliance Event (January 24th – January 28th)

Quick Summary:

  • [All members of the Alliance]Grab all Free Claims daily, do 10 War Attacks per war = Milestone 17. All monthly items, 10,000 Elite 5&6 Credits each, 3 T2 Level 5 Ion Orbs and more

This Alliance Event will be based on doing War Battles and collecting Orb Fragments from the Free Claims. It will last 4 Days.

There will be 20 Milestones at a maximum of 850,000 Points.

Rewards will include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 26,000 X-Batteries – unlocked all upon reaching Milestone 13 at 306,000 Points
  • T1 Ions, T2 Level 1 Ions
  • 1,2 million T2 Level 4 Ions
  • 200,000 T2 Level 5 Ions
  • 10,000 Elite 5 Credits, 10,000 Elite 6 Credits
  • 3 T2 Level 5 Ion Orbs
    • Bonus Rewards
    • 3 million T2 Level 4 Ions
    • 1,75 million T2 Level 5 Ions
    • 15 T2 Level 5 Orbs

Points will be earned by:

  • Play 1 War Battle = 1,000 Points [Limit 480,000]
  • Earn 1 Allied Supply III Orb Fragments = 1 Point

All the next calculations will be done with a full (24 members) Alliance in mind.

We get Free Claims once per day in a sum of 1,000 Orb Fragments, over the course of the event this will add 96,000 Points to our total if all members get all the Free Claims.

In terms of War Battles, this event will cover only 2 Wars. To hit the limit on Points each member of the Alliance needs to use their 10 Free attacks for both Wars. That’s fairly simple and can be done even if the Alliance is missing a couple of members, but in that case, a lot of members will need to do more than 10 attacks per War. All of this will bring us 480,000 Points.

The total we can get free-to-play is 576,000 Points which is enough to get to Milestone 17 with a fair amount of points to spare. Milestone 18 will be very close but unreachable without spending money on offers.

Perfect Hosts Quick Rumble (January 26th – January 28th)

The QR Trait this time is Symbiotes.

Rewards will include:

  • 13,000 X-Batteries
  • 10 Blitz Orbs
  • 24,000 Basic Orb Fragments
  • 12,000 Legacy I Orb Fragments
  • 14,000 Legacy II Orb Fragments
  • 2,000 Mega Orb Fragments

Completing this will be easy since you can do it just by winning 2 Blitz battles if you have a squad of 7 Yellow Star Symbiote characters. And if you have only 2 Symbiotes at 7 you can still do this easy with 5 wins.

Conclusion

This week we can earn 157,000 Milestone Points, which will get our total to 429,000 Points if you grabbed all the available Milestone Points from the previous events. And if you kept up with all Free Claims you should be above Milestone 35 by the time this week is over.

One big notable thing is that this week starts the push to level 100 so don’t let your campaign energy sit idly, this includes the Symbiote showcase running right now and the Incursion Campaign as well.

Solar Schematics (January 15th – January 22nd)

Quick Summary:

  • Spend all free Iso-8 energy and refresh the Iso energy 4 times per day, collect all Free Claims, do 30 war attacks(10 per war), use Superior Six in War
  • Do 3-4 Blitz Rotations per day
  • All of the above will get you to Milestone 13 = All Monthly Items, 35 Sunspot Shards
  • To reach Milestone 14 and get Bonus 15 Sunspot shards – spend another 1,000 Iso-8 Energy during the event.

Breakdown

The second January Main Event will be two-pronged with a focus on Iso-8 Energy and Battling in War. This is a 7-day event and it will serve as an unlock method for Sunspot.

There will be 20 Milestones at a maximum of 210,000 Points.

Rewards will include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 78,000 X-Batteries – unlocked all upon reaching Milestone 11 at 92,300 Points
  • Scanalyzer (worth 25,000 Monthly Milestone Points) – Milestone 13 at 123,100 Points
  • 50 Sunspot Character Shards
  • 125 Gold Promotion Credits
  • Mutant Gear
    • Bonus Rewards:
    • 25 Sunspot Character Shards
    • 10,000 Elite 5 Credits, 5,000 Elite 6 Credits, 2,500 Elite 7 Credits
    • 1,500 Dark Promotion Credits
    • 170 Mutant GT18 mini-uniques
    • One Diamond Orb
    • One Diamond Champions Orb

Points will be earned by:

  • Earn 1 Solar Schematic Orb Fragment = 1 Point
  • Win/Lose 1 War Battle = 1,000 Points [Limit 30,000]
  • Win/Lose 1 War Battle with Superior Six = 500 Points [Limit 2,500]
  • Win/Lose 1 War Battle with Superior Six at Gear Tier 17 = 1,000 Points [Limit 5,000]
  • Win/Lose 1 War Battle with Superior Six at Gear Tier 18 = 3,000 Points [Limit 15,000]

The main way of earning Solar Schematic Orb Fragments will be through Iso-8 Campaign nodes. We don’t know the drop rate yet so this will be updated shortly after the event goes live.

For events that require spending Campaign Energy, it is recommended and expected of us to spend 200 Power Cores on Energy refreshes daily, usually, this (in tandem with other means of earning points, war battles this time) will be enough to reach the Monthly Item, which is Milestone 13 for this event. However, our target will be Milestone 14 which will give us another 15 Sunspot shards for a total of 50. This will allow everyone to unlock him. He can still be unlocked by reaching Milestone 12 if you collected both Friday Free Claims with Sunspot shards.

If we spend all our free Iso-8 energy and refresh it 4 times per day (200 Power Cores), we will be spending 1130 Iso-8 energy per day. In 7 days this will amount to 7,910 energy spent. The drop rate is set to 6 Orb Fragments per 1 Iso-8 Energy, so the total amount of Points you will get is 47,460

We will get another 2 Solar Schematic Orbs from the Web Milestone, which will net us 4,000 Points. If we complete the Web Milestone we will additionally receive 36,000 Milestone Points.

Earning Points from doing War Battles will be easy since you receive points whether you win or lose, the only important thing is to NOT cancel fights as those will not count towards the Milestone.

Reaching the Limit requires you to complete 30 War battles, and this event will cover all 3 weekly Wars so it is just the 10 attacks per War that you can do for free. This will add in 30,000 Points to our total.

Reaching the limits by using Superior Six characters will be easy enough as well, you will be required to do just one War attack with a full Superior Six squad. If you don’t have the full team you can still do it with just 2 Superior Six characters as long as you use them 3 times. This will get you 2,500 Points.

If you have your Superior Six at Gear Tier 17 or 18 you can get some Bonus Points. To hit the Limits you need to have at least 2 Superior Six at the required Gear Tier and if you use those 2 characters 3 times (once per each War), you will hit the Limits. This will net you 5,000 Points if you have them at GT17 or a total of 20,000 if they are at GT18. We won’t be including this into our total calculation unless stated otherwise.

From the Free Claims we are receiving 500 Milestone Points and 500 Orb Fragments per day, this will equal 7,000 Milestone Points once all is said and done.

When we add everything up we get to 126,960 Milestone Points, which is slightly more than enough to reach Milestone 13 and get the Monthly Item. It is only around 6,000 Points short of our target, Milestone 14. We can cover that gap by spending around 1,000 more Iso-8 energy. Quick note, we will have a Friday Free Claim for this event that may include either Iso energy, Orb Fragments or Milestone Points directly so spending the bonus 1,000 might not be necessary in the end.

If you have Superior Six characters at GT 17 you can get there by just doing an additional 1 or 2 refreshes instead, depending on how much Iso-8 energy you had at the start, and if you have them at GT18 you will easily reach Milestone 15.

X-Treme Heat Web Milestone (January 15th – January 22nd)

This Web Milestone will run alongside the Solar Schematics Main event and will reward points for it.

To complete the Web Milestone you will have to earn 25,000 Blitz Credits in 7 Days. This can be done by doing 3-4 Blitz Rotations per day (40 wins per rotation). You might be able to complete it even sooner if you get some lucky drops.

You can earn 36,000 Milestone Points and 4,000 Solaer Schematics Orb Fragments if you complete this, which is a total of 40,000 Milestone Points for the Main Event. Without these Points, it will be nearly impossible to reach the target milestone for that event so we advise you to complete the Web Milestone.

Allied Engines Alliance Event (January 16th – January 20th)

Quick Summary:

  • If all members Do 10 Raid Battles Daily, use X-Treme X-Men in Raids, and collect all Free Claims = Alliance will reach Milestone 17

Breakdown

This is the first Alliance Event for the January Monthly and it will be centered around Battling in Raids and earning Allied Supply III Orb Fragments.

There will be 20 Milestones at a total of 1,000,000 Points

Rewards will include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 28,000 X-Batteries – unlocked all upon reaching Milestone 13 at 390,000 Points
  • 9 Gold Orbs
  • 20,000 Elite 5 Credits, 10,000 Elite 6 Credits, 2,500 Elite 7 Credits
  • One T2 Level 5 Ion Orb
  • 700,000 T2 Level 4 Ions, 200,000 T2 Level 5 Ions
  • Armory 15, 16, and 17 Orbs
  • 7 Armory 18 Orbs
    • Bonus Rewards:
    • 13 T2 Level 5 Ion Orbs
    • 30 Armory 18 Orbs
    • 3 Mega Gold Orbs
    • 100 T4 Ability Materials
    • 1 Diamond for Venom

Points will be earned by:

  • Battle in Raids = 400 Points [Limit 384,000]
  • Battle in Raids with X-Treme X-Men = 200 Points [Limit 156,000]
  • Battle in Raids with X-Treme X-Men at 5 Yellow Stars = 200 Points [Limit 39,000]
  • Battle in Raids with X-Treme X-Men at 6 Yellow Stars = 200 Points [Limit 31,000]
  • Battle in Raids with X-Treme X-Men at 7 Yellow Stars = 500 Points [Limit 78,000]
  • Collect 1 Allied Supply III Orb Fragments = 1 Point

This event will have a Leaderboard. The top 10 Alliances will be able to earn 2 Diamonds for Venom, while the top 1 Alliance will receive 3 Diamonds instead. Ranks 1 through Ranks 4-10% will earn Mega Gold Orbs (up to 7 Mega Gold Orbs for Rank 1). There are also Diamond Orb or Diamond Dawn Orb Fragments for Ranks 10-50 or the first 1-3%. Everyone in the 25% or above will also receive Armory 18 Orb Fragments, while the players below will get only Armory 17 Orb Fragments.

To hit the first Raid Limit, every member of your Alliance (we will assume that it’s a full 24-member Alliance) will have to do 10 Raid attacks daily for the duration of the event, or 40 Raid attacks total. Doing this will be easy if your Alliance runs Main Raids and Greek Raids simultaneously. That way we will hit the limit and get 384,000 Points.

The next Limit is all about using X-Treme X-Men in Raids with a bonus for using them at higher Yellow Stars. You can hit all limits even if every member only has 1 or 2 X-Treme characters at 7 Yellow Stars it’s enough for each Alliance member to use them at least once every day. Once we hit all limits we will earn another 304,000 Points.

The last way of earning Points will be through collecting Allied Supply III Orb Fragments. This is the next iteration of the Allied Supply Orb and it will feature increased Gold payouts, 300% more, and 150% Training materials.

We are getting 1,000 Allied Supply III Orb Fragments per day, and if every member of the Alliance collects all of them the total will increase by 96,000 Points.

As things stand right now, the expected Milestone we can reach Free-to-Play is Milestone 17 with only 16,000 Points away from getting Milestone 18, but that will only be doable by buying select offers.

Systems Online Quick Rumble (January 19th – January 21st)

The trait for this QR is P.E.G.A.S.U.S.

Rewards will include:

  • 13,000 X-Batteries
  • 10 Blitz Orbs
  • 280 T2 Ability Materials
  • 350 T3 Ability Materials
  • 150 T4 Ability Materials

If you have all of your P.E.G.A.S.U.S. characters at 7 Yellow Stars you will complete this with just 2 Blitz wins using them. If you have only 2 characters at 7 you will need to get 5 Wins using them.

Conclusion

All of the events from this week will net us a total of 144,000 Monthly Milestone Points, by the time all of these events end you should have at least 272,000 Points, and if we include the Free Claims you will likely be around 300,000 Milestone points which is nearing Milestone 33.

A big thing this week is a chance for a lot of players to earn their first Mega Gold Orb completely Free-to-Play, as long as they have a strong Alliance that is active in Raids. Getting the Mega Gold Orb from the Alliance event might be too hard, but the Leaderboard payout includes everyone up to 4-10% so a lot of players will get at least one.

Otherwise, the only busy work this week will be battling in Blitz to complete the Web Milestone. Everything else aligns with our usual activity, Raids/War etc. Just remember to use Superior Six in War and X-Treme X-Men in Raids as much as you can.

Quick Summary:

  • Do 18 Cosmic Crucible Battles, use Superior Six in Crucible 3 times, spend all free normal Campaign Energy and Incursion Campaign Energy, and collect all Free Claims = Milestone 14. You will get all monthly items, 40 Forge shards, and gear.
  • Do 18 Cosmic Crucible Battles, use Superior Six in Crucible 3 times, refresh Campaign Energy 4 times per day(200 Power Cores), refresh Incursion Energy once per day (50 power cores), spend all free energy for both, and collect all Free Claims = Milestone 15. Additional 300,000 T2 Level 5 Ions and gear.

Breakdown

This is the first Main Event for the Mechanical Marvel Monthly Milestone and it will require you to spend Campaign Energy and Battle in Crucible. This is a 7-day event.

There will be 20 Milestone at a maximum of 117,000 Points

Rewards will include:
(Bonus Rewards may not be obtainable free-to-play)

  • 80,000 X-Batteries – upon reaching Milestone 12 at 23,200 Points
  • Red Bandana (worth 35,000 Monthly Milestone Points) – Milestone 13 at 30,000 Points
  • 40 Forge character shards
  • 100,000 T2 Level 4 Ions
  • Superior and Augmented Mutant Gear
    • Bonus Rewards:
    • 1,5 Million T2 Level 5 Ions
    • 25 Forge character shards
    • 5,000 Elite 7 Credits
    • 1 Diamond Orb
    • 160 Mutant GT18 mini-uniques

Points will be earned by:

  • Spend 1 Campaign Energy = 2 Point
  • Collect 1 Crucible Champions Orb Fragment = 1 Point
  • Battle in Cosmic Crucible = 800 Points [Limit 14,400]
  • Battle in Cosmic Crucible with Superior Six = 200 Points [Limit 3,000]
  • Battle in Cosmic Crucible with Superior Six at 5 Yellow Stars = 200 Points [Limit 3,000]
  • Battle in Cosmic Crucible with Superior Six at 6 Yellow Stars = 500 Points [Limit 7,500]
  • Battle in Cosmic Crucible with Superior Six at 7 Yellow Stars = 1,000 Points [Limit 15,000]

There will also be a Leaderboard for this event where the top 1,000 Players can compete for Quicksilver Diamonds, with a chance to get 3 Diamonds for the top 50 Players. The top 1-3% can receive one Diamond Dawn Orb while the top 4-10% will receive 1,000 Diamond Dawn Orb Fragments(half a Orb). Other rewards include T2 Level 5 Ions, Dark Promotion Credits, and Armory 18 Orbs, while the lower brackets will receive Gold Promotion Credits, T2 level 4 Ions, and Armory 17 Orbs.

There are two main ways to earn Points for this event – Campaign Energy and Crucible. While you could also get a lot of Points for getting Crucible Champions Orb Fragments, those will be hard to come by. We can get 2-3 Orbs from the Web Milestone and we can get a few more Fragments as part of the Daily Free Claims (250 Fragments per day) but otherwise, you would have to buy offers to get more Orbs.

Our target for this event is Milestone 14, this will allow you to get enough shards from both, the Main Event and Monthly Milestone to unlock Forge during this Event and use him in his X-Tremely Sinister Showcase before that ends.

For events that require spending Campaign Energy, we recommend using Power Cores to refresh your Energy 4 times per day, which will increase the number of Points you can reasonably get. If you do 4 Power Core refreshes (200 Power Cores per day), and spend all your Free Energy(normal energy, free energy from daily objectives, energy from web milestone), you can spend around 1108 Campaign Energy per day, which is 7756 for the duration of the Event. That will translate to 15,512 Milestone Points.

Hitting the main limits for Cosmic Crucible won’t be challenging, you only need to play 18 Battles total and use Superior Six characters 3 times. The event will cover all 3 days of Crucible so it is fairly easy, you don’t even need to win. Just make sure that you have your Superior Six characters on Offense and don’t cancel your attacks with them since canceled attacks do not count. This will get you another 17,400 Points.

Getting the limits for using Superior Six at higher Yellow Stars won’t be easy for everyone since the team just released and most FTP players won’t have them at 5 or higher Yellow Stars. The only exception to this is Doctor Octopus and Green Goblin (Classic) to some extent. Most of the longtime players should have Doc Oc at 7 Yellow Stars, which will add another 5,100 Points to our total. Green Goblin was released through Trials and active players might have him at 5 or 6 Yellow Stars at this point, which will add either 600 or 2,100 Points to our total respectively. We will include Points for Doc Oc in our final calculation but will omit Green Goblin so if you have him at 5 or 6 just add to your total 600 or 2,100 Points.

You can also reasonably get 6,000 Milestone Points from the Web Milestone and another 3,000 Champions Orb Fragments, so 9,000 Points in total.

We will also have Free Claims for this event, which are set at a low 250 Orb Fragments per day, which won’t even amount to a full Orb once the event ends but it will net you 1750 Milestone Points.

If we add everything up, our total for the event will be 47,000 Points, which is enough to reach Milestone 15. We will get all normal rewards including all Monthly items and will dip into the Bonus Rewards to get 300,000 T2 Level 5 Ions. That is well above our target so there is a healthy safety net in case you miss a campaign refresh or a crucible battle.

If you want to push as high as you can, it is possible to reach Milestone 16 and get the final 25 Forge shards. That can be done by either spending a ton of Power Cores. But realistically those shards won’t be as vital since you will get the unlock just by reaching Milestone 14(as long as you claimed the free 5 Forge shards from a previous Friday Free Claims).

Midnight Mayhem Web Milestone (January 8th – January 15th)

This Milestone will feed Points directly into the Sonic Judgment event and will require you to spend Incursion Campaign Energy. It will last 7 days.

There will be 10 Milestones at a maximum of 4,500 Points. We receive 1 Point per 1 Incursion Energy spent, meaning that to complete the event we will need 4,500 Incursion Campaign Energy which is unreasonable, as we only get 144 per day. That means that if we only spend the Free Incursion Campaign Energy we will reach Milestone 6, and get 3,000 Crucible Champions Orb Fragments and 3,000 Sonic Judgment Milestone Points. If we spend another 400 Incursion Energy we can reach Milestone 7 to get the last 3,000 Points for the Main Event. We can get to that by doing one Power Core refresh for Incursion Energy per day. Since it’s only 50 Power Cores per day this seems reasonable, spending more can be too much of a burden on some players because we will already be spending Power Cores for normal Campaign Energy refreshes.

You could also do 4 Energy refreshes per day here and that will help you to reach Milestone 9 and get an additional 3,000 Champions Orb Fragments (which is also 3,000 Milestone Points), but that should only be the case if you have a big stash of Power Cores and want to max the Main Event.

We consider Milestone 7 as the goal for this Web Milestone, 9,000 Points for the Main event and some Catalyst Gear for only 50 Power Cores per day seems like a good deal.

New Generation Quick Rumble (January 12th – January 14th)

The Trait for this QR is New Warriors.

Rewards will include:

  • 13,000 X-Batteries
  • 10 Blitz Orbs
  • 15,000 Gear Credits
  • 10 Orange Gear Raid Orbs
  • 10 Armory 15 Orbs
  • 3 Armory 16 Orbs
  • 3 Teal Gear Raid Orbs
  • 1 Armory 17 Orb

As long as you have your New Warriors at 7 Yellow Stars you can complete this Milestone just by doing 2 Blitz Battles with them, if not every one of them is at 7 you’ll just have to do a few more but overall this is still very easy.

ADVERTISEMENT

Conclusion

From the Milestones alone we can get 128,000 Points for the Monthly Event, that is key because that way we can get enough Forge shards to unlock him and use him in his Showcase event before it ends.

Once we include the daily Free Claims we are likely to end up around Milestone 23 after the first Main event ends. This is overall a very good start and a fairly simple event so have fun gaming.

We can collect 24,000 Icy X-Travaganza Milestone Points from Web Milestone. Which will significantly help us in our progress.

If we spend 1108 Campaign Energy per day (200 PC), we will earn 26,592 Milestone points from spending Campaign Energy.

10 Raid Battles daily is enough to reach the limit and collect 42,000 Milestone points. Another 3,600 and 4,800 Milestone Points can be earned by using the X-Treme X-Men Character (GT16). It is enough to have one X-Treme X-Men Character (GT16) and use it 3 times in raids. All in all, that’s 50,400 Milestone points.

Everything listed is enough to get us to Milestone 14 = all Monthly Related Rewards + 200 Cyclops Character Shards + 125K T2 Level 4 Ions.

Free Claims are set to 500 Milestone Points per day.

Everything over Milestone 14 requires spending extra Campaign Energy or having Nightcrawler and/or Forge on T17+ Gear.

Polar Power Web Milestone (January 2nd – January 8th)

Web Milestones is on a daily basis – 6 daily Milestones for the duration of the Main Event. In order to progress, it is necessary to earn Alliance Credits, more precisely 100 Credits per day. This is an easy task, which can be accomplished through the Daily Objectives after donating 10K Gold.

Rewards are 4,000 Icy X-Travaganza Milestone points per day (24,000 total) and 3,000 Cold Hard Cash per day (18,000 total).

  • 2,000 Basic T2 Iso-8 Orb Fragments

If you have 5 Uncanny X-Men Characters at 7 Yellow Stars, you will complete this milestone with only 2 Blitz wins using them. Otherwise, you will have to do a little more.

Conclusion

If you do everything we advised this month, you will complete the Monthly Milestones without problems. Everything from Monthly Milestone is reachable for FTP players. That is the most important thing. 

We hope that this trend continues next month.
