Team Battlegrounds is an intermittent team-based event in which two teams compete for great rewards. It has been removed from the game.
In order to be eligible, you need to belong to a team that is, at least, in Gold 3 League and with 10 or more players at level 40 or above (including yourself). Make sure that both you and your team are eligible before the matchmaking process begins!
Typically, an in-game announcement alerts players days in advance of a Team Battlegrounds beginning.
In the matchmaking, teams are divided into different difficulty tiers, based on their League. Different tiers have different restrictions and different rewards.
As teams gain more and more points, they will access better rewards. Each reward milestone has a minimum score that teams must reach in order to unlock it. Your team will receive the rewards of the milestone it is in when the event ends.
Players can also get Individual Rewards based on their performance and contribution. Placing defenses, destroying enemy slots and defending against enemy attacks give individual points. Each player must reach the minimum individual qualification score in order to access both Team and Individual Rewards.
During the Defense Phase, points can be received by setting your own defenses.
Players may fill a maximum of 10 defense slots. Each monster placed in defense earns 50 points (150 points for 3 monsters and 1,500 points for using the maximum number of monsters). A territory does not need to have all of its defense slots filled. However, if no monsters are placed in a territory, that territory will automatically be destroyed when an adjacent territory is destroyed.
At the end of the Defense Phase, all your monsters will be "locked", which means that any changes that you make to them during the Attack Phase (level up, rank up, changing runes or relics, etc.) won't have an effect inside the event. Monsters hatched or purchased during the Attack Phase won't be usable either.
The Defense Phase lasts for 24 hours.
To access the Attack Phase, your team needs to reach, at least, the lowest score milestone during the Defense Phase. Teams that fail to reach that minimum score will be disqualified and won't be able to keep playing.
Monsters placed on defense slots cannot be used to attack enemies in the Attack Phase. Make sure you select your best monsters for defense and attack, based on their stats and skills.
Certain territories have restrictions including: rarity, element, book, and/or rank.
In the Attack Phase, you get points by defeating the enemy's defenses, successfully defending against an enemy's attack and destroying the enemy's battlegrounds. Attack and defeat all of your enemy's slots in a specific battleground to destroy that battleground and win a huge score bonus. The score won by destroying a battleground only counts toward the team's score and not the players' individual scores.
Players may make a maximum of 10 attacks. The order of attack goes from the center to the edge. As soon as you destroy one territory, you will be able to attack every adjacent territory. The Attack Phase lasts for 24 hours. All defending teams behave as in survival mode- if a team successfully defends, in the next defense battle the monsters will have the same HP and SP as they finished the last fight.
After you use a monster to attack an enemy slot, it will immediately become exhausted and won't be available again in the Attack Phase. Select your defending and attacking monsters carefully!
