There are Seasonal Events and Challenge Events. There is one challenge event per month. It begins on the 2nd Wednesday of the month and continues through the weekend, and rotates through five possible events in the order listed below, beginning in January 2019:
- Pirates of Corellia
- Riddles of Wonderland
- Fables of Grimforest
- Guardians of Teltoc
- Knights of Avalon
Since Challenge Events begin on the 2nd Wednesday 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.
Note: From September 2019, all events will be updated with more stages, more heroes, more rewards and now start on Wednesday and last for 5 days instead of 3. Dates of the December Event were changed due to the upcoming holidays.

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.
