Known Issues[]

  • There is known confusion over the PVP league requirements. The fight requirements under each league are the required number of fights the player initiates - also known as “Attacks”. Successful defenses do not count toward this total. We will be updating the reward page and adding a count for “Attacks” in the future that will help solve this.
  • There is a known issue with completing Chapter 9 unlock mission quests
  • An error may occur at the end of any chapter 9 mission if
  • You have not collected the required items to unlock the next mission during a mission playthrough
  • Then switch to a different mode and play the same mission again (for example, you played mission 1 in normal mode, completed it, and then play it again on Challenge mode)
  • To work around this issue play through the mission in the same difficulty mode until the quest is completed.
