Event Information  

This event is highly focused on exploring and community interaction.
The explore encounters exclusive to this month can be found in all biomes.
Your lion's karma and level, as well as the biome you explore in, do not matter for this event.

In May, the community is working to unlock three tiers of one bar.
The more tournaments are participated in, the faster the Champion Shop will unlock.

This month's currencies are Manticora Beetles and Arena Tokens.
Manticora Beetles are predominately gained in Explore, but are also gained from participating in tournaments. Arena Tokens are gained by challenging other players and winning.


Explore Encounters  

Hover over the icons in the upper right corner to see whether an encounter is available during daytime, nighttime, wet season, or dry season. If on mobile, you can tap the icons for the same effect.



A loud commotion behind a tall hill catches your attention. You climb it, only to find Vashkartzen sparring with a Primal lion! You observe the testosterone-fueled scene as the lions growl and huff at each other. Suddenly, they back off before either of them gets seriously hurt. You're impressed at how a mere lion was able to match the strength of a mutated beast! Vash notices you and leaves you a token of appreciation, but let's be honest - that spar was epic and you were lucky just to witness it.

It's hard to miss this big group of lions in front of you as you're exploring. They're clearly not strangers: it looks like V'Kai is surrounded by a group of other young lions, all of which are excitedly chattering about the tournaments.

Two lions, entangled in an epic fight, have rolled in front of your path. You could join in, but that would drain your energy, so you decide to let them resolve their differences on their own. The red guy begins badly coughing and rolls on his back to signal he's yielded. You have a chance to confirm, like a judge, that "Deadly Falafel the Third" is a true winner.
Action Result Reward
Falafel Won It's pretty clear that Deadly Falafel the Third won here, and it's probably not his first time. The dark lion grins, your input appreciated, before he drags his opponent away to brag in the gorge. -2 to -3 Karma
+3 Manticora Beetles
The Fight Was Unfair You exclaim that the fight happened outside of the arena, and you're not in an official position to judge. Falafel is absolutely furious and huffs off, leaving the red guy to warmly thank you. +2 to 3 Karma
+3 Manticora Beetles
WOOO Go Champions!
You stumble upon V'Kai and Vashkartzen! At first you think maybe they are fighting, but it looks like it was a tussle, and now V'Kai is very affectionate towards his brother... Not that "Vash the Rash" seems too happy about it, but here outside of the Arena, they seem more like family to you. You go your own way, giving them some privacy. Better not risk Vashkartzen beating the crap out of you for seeing that he has a softer side.
NOTE: This encounter will only have a chance of appearing once Tier Three of the Champion Shop is unlocked.

Challenges  


Challenge!


Challenges can be accessed from the Event page, where you can see something that looks a bit like the below.


Click "Challenge A Lion!" to challenge another player! Once you have, and before they respond, you'll see this.


Challenges can only be done once every 15 minutes, and you can only challenge one person at a time if they are oline. If the player you have challenged does not respond within 15 minutes, you are free to go challenge someone else. There is also a small chance that you'll be able to sneak in and steal an Arena Token in that time!

If they do accept, the rest of the 15 minute cooldown will apply to the challenger; however, the player you have challenged can go out and find someone else to challenge. If the challenge is rejected, the cooldown is cleared and you can find someone else who might accept.

If you win a challenge, you will earn 1 to 4 Arena Tokens! If you lose, you do not earn anything, but thankfully you won't lose your current Arena Tokens, either!

When you send out a challenge, you'll get a notification like so.

Muaha! You have sent a challenge to PLAYER! They have 15 minutes to accept the challenge. If they don't, there's a chance you could sneak in and attack them anyway...

When your opponent responds, you'll be notified in a similar fasion.

You have some challenge result notifications!

Defend Yourself  

Here is where you'll defend your title!


Like sending out a challenge, you can win or lose these ones. You'll earn 1 to 4 Arena Tokens for winning, and none for losing. If you do not respond to a challenge, there is a small chance that your opponent will win an Arena Token anyway, so stay vigilant!

Battle Arenas  


Welcome to the championship arena! Here you may exchange Arena Tokens to enter tournaments against other lions in your tier.

Each tournament consists of 8 lions fighting each other in matched battles. Once the 8th lion enters, the tournament runs. Each tournament has 3 rounds of battles - quarter finals, semi finals, and then the final. The winners from each round will battle until a final winner is chosen.

You can enter one tournament at a time, and receive an hour's cooldown after your entry to recuperate before you can enter your next one.

While your pride leader's stats do not matter for challenges, they are important when it comes to the Battle Arena. The higher your stats, the better your chances are of winning against the other lions you're up against; however, keep in mind that there is also a luck factor in play. This luck factor is intended to assist players that are towards the lower end of a stat tier so that they have a chance to win in one of the tournaments, rather than losing against everyone else.

To prevent lower-statted lions from being pitted against bloodthirsty beasts with thousands of stats, the Battle Arena is divided into several different tiers, based upon a lion's total stat count.


Stat Tiers
Beginner Advanced Expert Ultimate
0 to 50 501 to 800 2001 to 2500 6001+
51 to 150 801 to 1200 2501 to 3000
151 to 300 1201 to 1600 3001 to 4000
301 to 500 1601 to 2000 4001 to 6000

Keep in mind that if you go above the stat limit for one tier, you will be moved to the next tier. If you choose to retire your pride leader while participating in a tournament, you will be permitted to finish your current tournament before you are moved to the next stat tier.

So, let's go ahead and participate in the Battle Arena!


You place the tokens into a giant turtle shell, and the match for your round has been picked! Your opponent and you will battle soon in today's tournament once all players are ready!


Once the tournament has successfully finished, each participant will receive a Game Notification informing them that the tournament is over, and the results have been posted.



Accessing the provided link will display the results in a similar fashion as presented below!



As seen above, the first round (or the "quarter finals") is made up of eight different kings. They are pitted against one another in groups of two, where four will win and four will lose. Once the first round is complete, it then moves on to the second round (or the "semi finals"). This is comprised of four kings in total, and only two will continue on. When the second round finishes, the third round (or the "finals") takes place, which is where the tournament comes to an end. Only one king will be victorious...

... But even if you lose, you can still win! If you lose a round, there is a chance to gain between 1 to 2 Manticora Beetles. If you win a round, you can gain between 4 to 5 Manticora Beetles. Event currency isn't all you earn from the tournaments, though!
