Champions, the following changes have been made to the monthly Calendar of activities:
Update 0.22 simplifies where specific prizes are located for Limited Time Tours and Dean’s Daily, and brings an overall increase to nearly all resources mentioned below!
NOTE: Some changes may not occur until Update 0.22 is fully released early next week, where others (Headliner Chips in VS) may appear this Sunday night at Midnight PST at the earliest.
We want you, our players, to have a clear idea of where you can earn resources in the various sections in the game. That’s why we’re realigning what each mode gives out, with each one focusing on a specific resource (Coins, TP, etc). Not only that, but you’ll be getting MORE loot overall! For example, Dean’s Daily will focus on giving out BIG amounts of Coins, and Daily Limited Time Tours will give out class-specific items. Players will receive more of each of these resources, and in fewer battles. Here’s an overview of how it will look:
What this change means for you is more rewards for fewer battles in some places, and a central location to earn specific prizes. You’ll be able to earn all the Coins currently offered in a single play-through of Dean’s Daily, and earn class-specific TP on a regular basis.
Dean’s Daily will now be a 24-hour challenge and the ideal place to go each day to earn BIG TIME Coins! All Training Points and Premium Chips previously won from Dean’s Daily have now been moved to the daily Limited Time Tours and Daily Missions (respectively). Overall, players will net an increased amount of Coins in this easy, one-stop location they can play each day.
Daily Limited Time Tours
Daily Limited Time Tours reward specific items you need to advancing your Superstars of each class. It make sense that these should contain TP of that same class as well. Therefore, Coin 1st Time Rewards have been moved to Dean’s Daily, while TP from Dean’s Daily, Free Loot, and some from VS have been distributed to this mode.
Note: Loot Box rewards have not changed. Sunday Night Heat will remain unchanged.
VS will largely be unaffected except for the top 4,000 rank Fame Reward. The 100 TP has been moved to the Daily Limited Time Tours, being spread across each of the days. You’ll now be able to earn 180 TP in a week, compared to the 100 previously from the 4000 milestone reward. 1,000 Headliner Chips have now been added to the top Fame Reward slot. These changes to VS will begin this Sunday at Midnight when VS resets for the week.
We’ve seen your feedback across various social channels on Health Packs and we’ll be increasing the amount given out in Free Loot. Free Loot can be claimed every 6 hours, and will now be a 2-pull, which will give out more Health Packs.
Missions (now Daily Missions)
Missions have been turned into Daily Missions which refresh on a 24-hour basis. The tasks will be simple to do and grant 25 Cash everyday for completing all 6 objectives! Daily Missions also now have a Go button which will take you right to your objective.
Read more about Daily Missions here: https://www.wwechampionsgame.com/blog/daily-missions-coming-soon
In summary, Daily Missions are now a cleaner and more dependable source of a variety of resources, Free Loot will give out more Health Packs, Daily Limited Time Tours are the place to get class-specific goods, and Dean’s Daily will give out your daily amount of coins all in one location. Overall, players will receive more of nearly all resources mentioned above with this change!
Missions is getting an upgrade! Coming in next week’s Feature Update, Missions will become the all-new Daily Mission system, giving out a consistent flow of rewards that will refresh every day. With the new look also comes a simplification and streamlining of the missions themselves, providing players with tasks that can be easily accomplished in a short period of time. The Daily Missions feature also has a “Go” button making it easy to get directly to the area needed to accomplish the goal.
With Daily Missions, the Mission Bag has been replaced with a 25x Cash reward, but can be changed out for special rewards, such as during special Limited Time Events etc. Included in the daily rewards are 2x 1-Star Silver Tokens and 5x TP (both of which will reflect the color of the current Daily Limited Time Tour) bunches of Coins, and 50x Premium Chips!
What happens to partially-completed Missions & Mission Bags?
When Daily Missions is released, we understand that some players may be in the middle of completing their old Missions and earning the Mission Bag, so we’ll be giving out a few items to everyone who have some things left incomplete. We know the new system will be super rewarding, but want to make sure your effort in the old system is rewarded! Everyone who logs in will get:
The new update is aimed to release early to mid-next week. Try it out when it launches and let us know what you think!
Last week we launched the December 2017 Talent Up Event with free Arn Anderson character to all those completing the 1st node in the LTT all this month. Unfortunately, the deployment of this Event caused some issues which affected the scoring and the overall Leaderboard. Our team of Engineers has been hard at work investigating the cause and researching a safe way to correct the leaderboard and we appreciate your patience during this time.
Fixing the Leaderboard
We will begin running a script in several 100k player batches which will give every participant points according to the current Talent score of their Arn Anderson "Double A" Superstar. So both players with more or fewer points than they should, should have points equal to AA's total Talent.
NOTE: Each script batch will take several hours to complete, so we estimate the leaderboard and all players will be corrected within the next 24-36 hours.
With the launch of the Arn Anderson free character giveaway and month-long Event came some issues that brought frustrations to you our players. It was quickly apparent that players were experiencing significant lag in the game, which brought a variety of other issues as well, and we got to work investigating. Our team of Engineers isolated the root cause, put in preventative measures to keep it from happening the rest of the Event, and will be ensuring this particular issue doesn’t happen in other instances.
An issue in the game caused players to experience a considerable amount of lag in the game from 12 pm PST to around 4 pm PST (some may have experienced some issues beyond this time). This was apparent on multiple screens, when battling PVE, or upgrading a character, etc. Because of the extent of this issue, it caused instability with other player actions which resulted in players encountering additional symptoms in other parts of the game.
What were the other “symptoms?”
As a side-effect of the main problem, some players experienced the following issues:
What’s being done
Here’s what we’re doing to make it right to our players affected by this issue:
Investigate the Issue
We have isolated the root cause of the issue, and will be spending additional time ensuring that it does not affect other areas as well. Being proactive on bug tracking to help prevent similar issues occurring in the future.
Fix the Leaderboard
We realized with 2 of the main issues occuring, some players have less points than they really should, and others who had their Arn Anderson’s level reset, ended up with more than they should. As it is right now, all players should have the amount of points they’ve acquired from leveling up Arn Anderson “Double A.” We want all players to be confident that their scores are correct and there is no unfair advantage to those who did/did not experience a bug.
With that in mind, we will be correcting the leaderboard so everyone’s score reflect the total talent of their Arn Anderson Superstar, plus an additional 200 Talent Points.
This is the 2nd time this type of Event has failed to make a good first impression and we’re going to do our best to make it up to you and get you back into the game. For the issues experienced above, we will be sending out the following prizes to all players who log in before Sunday PST:
We appreciate your patience.
Continue to Improve Big Events
Major Events with free character giveaways and full of activities should be exciting for all players. We’re determined to making them work and be a source of fun, not of frustration for you our players. With that in mind, working to fix the problems players experienced in priority 1. We are also actively listening to your feedback. Since October, we adjusted the balance of this Event so players would be able to earn Fuse Ups for Arn Anderson all the way through 2 Star Gold. We will continue to take in your feedback and together with Data, and your feedback surveys, consider the best balance for future Events that we may run.
Once again, we appreciate your patience while we improve the game for you
The holidays are upon us and we've got a full month of awesome activities coming to WWE Champions! With another Month-long RBE, a free Character Poster to those who play the Limited Time Tour, special holiday events and more!
Here's an overview of some things you can expect to see:
Arn Anderson Giveaway
Arn Anderson "Double A" is a FREE Superstar that players can acquire by beating the 1st node in the Limited Time Tour each day starting on the 5th! Arn is a Botch Gem specialist, making it challenging for his opponents to deal Gem Damage when his moves has been activated. He also has a very strong Botch Gem Generation Trainer Skill. Arn Shines in defensive situations, including Survival Mode.
December Limited Time Tours
Headliner Chips can be won from Limited Time Tours all month! Cash them in at the Loot store to win 3 Star Gold or 4 Star Silver Tokens!
We’re working on getting the Throwback Throwdown Faction Feud prep out this afternoon. We appreciate your patience. Feud will begin tomorrow evening PST. Throwback Throwdown features the 9 of the original Superstars gained early on in the game from the Tutorial, Road, etc. and lets you put them to the test against other Factions!
The Original 9 Link
For 48 Hours, we’re adding a temporary “Original 9” Link to the 9 Superstars featured in this Feud that gives a +1 MP to all moves. During this time, the Original 9 Link may be prioritized over some Links, such as the Modern Era or NXT Links, when using these Superstars in Tag Team Matches.
The following Superstars make up the Throwback Throwdown Faction Feud Roster:
A bug was discovered after our team implemented a server fix to restore service for elder users. Shortly after, service was interrupted for approximately 16 hours. The team was then able to restore service to most of our players, with full service being restored several hours later.
After investigating reports of users exploiting the aforementioned bug, we found that only a small number of users took advantage egregiously, and this group of users have had their winnings scaled back in order to mitigate against the huge competitive advantage they would have gained. Most users who experienced the bug were able to retain all their winnings. The Month-Long Leaves Event Leaderboard will also be updated tomorrow to reflect this.
Thanks for being patient and understanding with these issues.

Faction Feud is back and with is come several significant fixes to the feature.
In the latest Update, we addressed the most severe problems with Faction Feud, including the bigger stability problems, and Ghosting. Ghosting is an issue that can cause a player to appear in more Feud Brawls than they're actually in.
Please note, however, that Ghosting MAY likely still occur if players 1. leave a Brawl mid-match, and 2. enter a new Brawl in a different Faction. IF you encounter this issue via an alternate way, please let us know exactly how it occurred so we can investigate the problem.
With these major problems out of the way, we will be able to see if any other persisting problems exist with Faction Feud. We will be monitoring the event and your feedback in order to continue to improve Faction Feud!
