Conquest Medal Shop Guide and Analysis – Bloodstone (October 2023) Season

In this buyer's guide, Kirallas breaks down the rewards for the Bloodstone (October 2023) Conquest Medal Shop and analyzes possible strategies for purchasing items.

Another month is upon us, which means it’s time to take another look at the contents of the Medal Shop and analyze the prices. And although we didn’t get new emotes for Medals, this time the differences are more significant than they were last month. Now, let’s take a look at how many Medals this season’s Conquest exclusive variant will cost you.

You have four weeks until the end of the season to earn enough Medals for the rewards. Make sure to spend them all on the Medal Shop before the season ends! If you have leftover Medals at the end of the season, each Medal will be worth 0.15 Boosters for a random card. For example: 100 Medals will convert to 15 Boosters.

Different Strategies

StrategyMedals% diff relative to the cheapest

A few different strategies were chosen for the chart, and each corresponds to the thee major types of players.

The strategy of the cheapest purchases is, as expected, based on the fact that you don’t like the Conquest mode and want to get the reward as soon as possible. Also, if possible, we choose as many different awards as possible, as long as the price stayed the same.

The optimal strategy is related to getting the maximum progress value when choosing nine items to buy. We also select variants and other items, the purchase of which will allow you to make the final cost lower. It’s supposed to be the most balanced strategy for a player who wants to get the most important and necessary items from the Medal Shop.

The premium strategy is based on the fact that a player wants all the resources and cosmetics that are only sold in the Medal Shop. This is the most expensive strategy that will require you to play a lot of games in Conquest.

For all strategies, it’s taken into account that when you buy a ticket, you get Medals back when you use it. So, for example, if you buy a ticket to the Gold Tier for 300 Medals and use it, you get 75 Medals just for that. This ultimately makes the cost of this purchase equal to 225 Medals.

What’s Changed

The number of Medal rewards unchanged from last month and has remained at the values above.

However, there has been a massive rebalancing of prices. In particular, the average price of tickets went up, the price of Gold, Mystery Variants and Credits was lowered and the price of exclusive cosmetics was raised. Also, compared to last month, there are now a total of two Mystery Variants and 1,000 Credits, compared to one Mystery Variant and 700 Credits last month. All of this significantly raised the price for the Optimal (by 225 Medals) and Premium strategies (by 980 Medals), but lowered the price for the Cheapest strategy (by 575 Medals).

It is worth noting that for the Optimal strategy, the price change was generally proportional to the resources received. But the increase in price for the Premium strategy is largely due to the increased price for Title, from 900 to 1,300 Medals.

When it comes to the difference between strategies, if last month even the most passive players found it more profitable to spend a little more time but get resources from the Optimal strategy, then now the gap between strategies has become large and if you’re not interested in the conquest at all but want to get an exclusive option, you should probably stick to the Cheapest strategy, since now the difference is 42.25%.


In October, those who want to get everything from the conquest will have to sweat – because they will have to get almost 1,000 medals more than usual. For most players, the price has increased in proportion to the resources received, which is good. And those who want to get only the exclusive variant will be able to spend even less time in the unloved mode than before.

In general, I assess these changes as extremely positive (except for the increase in price for the Premium strategy) and still expect an increase in the types of cosmetics (such as new emotes) in the Medal Shop in the coming seasons.
