- Pirates of Corellia
- Riddles of Wonderland
- Fables of Grimforest
- Guardians of Teltoc
- Knights of Avalon
- League of Villains
- Starfall Circus
- Slayers of Fell Shadows
Tentative 2021 Schedule
Since Challenge Events begin on the 2nd Thursday of the month, the following dates should be accurate, though of course, they may be altered as SGG deems necessary. The following calendar was created with the expectation that the previous rotation will continue as is.

Each event has three different tiers of quest: Rare, Epic, and Legendary. Each tier consists in 15 stages.
- Heroes must be 3* or less
- Troops and items must be 1* or 2* only
- Stages cost between 1 and 5 World Energy each
- Heroes must be 4* or less
- Toops and items must be 3* or less
- Stages cost between 2 and 6 World Energy each
- All heroes, troops, and items are permitted

See the specific event page (linked above) in question for more information on the individual quests.
Rewards & Ranks
Rewards from the Challenge Event depends upon both how many stages you've completed, as well as how many points you have acquired along the way. More points are rewarded for completing stages as quickly as possible with as high health as possible. Rewards for the December 2018 Knights of Avalon event offered the following reward tiers (Note: As of September 2019 Challenge Events were updated and rewards differ from the table shown):
|Epic Troop Token||x||x||x||x|
|Epic Hero Token||x||x||x|
|4* Event Hero||1|
Because there are so many competitors, the only things that set one person's performance apart from another are their luck (i.e RNG) along with how many and which items are used.
Generally speaking, it is an expensive endeavor to reach the Top 10 of any given event. Most individuals who reach the top 10 accomplish this via the use of numerous saved and purchased World Energy Flasks. The energy is then spent to replay poorer performing stages over and over until just one or two matches clear the entire field of enemies. Often, the items are then used to destroy enemy bosses.
