Beta events are usually much shorter, so that players don’t need to spend a long time in Beta regions to engage and try an upcoming feature, allowing us to gather performance data for a higher volume of onslaught matchups.
Regular Onslaught events will be longer than Beta.
The displayed team grade will adjust to reflect the currently set defense team, but the MULTIPLIER (also shown on the main match screen for each opponent) is based on the highest ever team grade, and will not change if you set a weaker team.
Regarding cases where a faction is smaller than its opponent, it’s true to say the more populated faction will have a slight advantage, as they will have more attacks, and lives at their disposal. To tackle this, you can of course acquire additional Onslaught Energy, but we simply invite you to grow your faction and recruit new members to be fully geared for war!
