What's Coming up in March

Hello Summoners!

Are you as excited as we are for the release of Captain Marvel? She’ll be making her way to Contest and bringing along the much requested Nick Fury! This month, we’ll join them in the fight against the Skrulls, and assist Nick Fury by gathering Intel on the inhabitants of The Battlerealm!

New Champions!

Captain Marvel, A.K.A. Carol Danvers, was a United States Air Force pilot that found herself reborn as a Kree warrior after a near-fatal accident. Under the guidance of the Kree Starforce commander Mar-Vell, she learned how to control her immense binary power, activating it in bursts of intense strength, incredible durability, and explosive energy attacks.

Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., is an exceptional strategist and master combatant. Thanks to scientifically-enhanced longevity, Fury has been able to hone both his martial and tactical skills with decades of active duty and espionage across a variety of war zones. These skills allow him to build up powerful counter-tactics against seemingly unbeatable foes, and hit them where it hurts.

Battlerealm: Under Siege!

Captain Marvel calls upon The Summoner with alarming news: the Battlerealm has been invaded by shape-shifting Skrulls! With the aid of Captain America, Captain Marvel leads an incursion into the Forbidden Territories to root out the Skrulls and exterminate their forces.

Her plans quickly become complicated by the arrival of a new Carol Danvers, who is being pursued by none other than Nick Fury himself. Who is the doppelganger Danvers? What secrets does Fury hold? Allegiances will be tested and imposters exposed in Battlerealm: Under Siege!

Who knows? Maybe there are Skrulls among us right now, just waiting to be exposed!

Nick Fury’s Recon Initiatives!

The Battlerealm is full of countless Allies and Enemies, and Nick Fury wants to know everything about all of them! Join him in a month long Event to gather Intel on the Champions of the Battlerealm!

Summoners can Assist Nick Fury by gathering Intel, as payment they can trade that Intel for rewards such as T5B Catalyst Fragments, 5 and 6-Star Crystal Shards, Hero Crystals, and even a 5-Star Awakening Gem Crystal!

These 4 Quests will be released over the course of the month, and feature the return of Champion Requirements!

Mysterious Messages…

Summoners have been reporting that they’ve been receiving mysterious messages about the history of The Contest… Who is sending these messages and what are they up to?

Watch for more information on all of the above as we get closer to launch!

    They said we can trade the intel for items so i think it might be something like the thor ragnarok event, where you collected valor and bought stuff with it.

    I think he's referring to the "champion requirement" part. But I think you're on the right track regarding the "trade intel for items" thingamadook.

    Considering theres t5b, 6* shards and a 5* gem up for grabs i highly doubt its gonna be like Gwen pool goes to movies. If anything it'll probably be similar to the valor store from the thor ragnarok event as @TheSquish671 said

    Could we get a little more advance guidance on champion requirements? There aren’t going to be star-based requirements, are they? I just want time to accrue those low level catalysts if needed.

    (If it really is like GP where you just need Champion X for Quest Y, great.)

    Not sure which part you are referring to but Ms. Marvel and her origin pre-dates the original battlestar galactica by over a year.

    I have to ask this why new Captain Marvel? Why not improvise the existing one like venom
  • This will definitely be one of the synergy masters. But if he doesn’t stack fury that would suck.

    Nick Fury will be Black Widow 2.0 in the same way Symbiote Supreme replaced Dr Strange.

    Introduce a new character instead of buffing the existing one and adding them to the 5* pool. (yes I know BW is made available as a 5* in limited crystals)

    There's a lot of answers to this question, but the one that's probably closest to the truth but would not satisfy you is "because they wanted to make a new Captain Marvel." No one chooses to do anything because they specifically look for reasons not to do everything else. Most of the time, they pick a thing to do, then do it.

    More specifically, they made improvements to Venom almost certainly because Venom was on their list of champions to eventually revamp due to performance issues. But probably neither currently existing (Danvers) Captain Marvels are on that list, and contrawise there may have been enough changes to backstory, appearance and the mechanics they wanted to highlight to warrant a new champion creation. Which ultimately boils down to: that's what they preferred to do.

    I suspect this is a reference to the similarities between the Skrull invasion plot and the rebooted Galactica plot involving disguised Cylons. Of course, while the Marvel comics Secret Invasion storyline doesn't predate the rebooted Galactica, the Skrulls themselves and their shape shifting shenanigans predates all versions of Galactica.

    I’m hooping for that 5* awakening gem crystal. I need one for my new voodoo
  • This seems like an awesome event! Hopefully android actually gets the update on the same day though
  • I'm super excited about March... Act 6 as been much anticipated since the completion of Act 5... I can't wait to clear it 100%, get that 6* generic awakening gem, and get that 'Elder's Bane II' title... keep up the great work @Kabam Miike and team.

  • I wonder if the rewards are set or chance. Like will your for sure get the 5* AG crystal or is it just a low chance at it. I’d rather it be harder but guaranteed rewards.

    It sounds to me like it won't be chance, but it might require collecting near the maximum amount of Intel, the earnable currency (the announcement states that the event revolves around earning "Intel" and using that to buy rewards).
  • I had a problem with the first sentence: "Are you as excited as we are for the release of Captain Marvel?"

    She was among the first champions released in The Contest. I am highly disappointed she was not respeced like Venom or Spider-Gwen. Kabam showed they can completely alter a character's SP1 with Spider-Gwen; and the old Captain Marvel's uniform is nearly identical to the movie version. It honestly looks like the only difference is the sash. Even the trailers to the movie show that Captain Marvel can transform her headgear into what the original Captain Marvel wears.

    Unless there is a surprise crossover between the two characters you haven't told us about yet, then this is poorly conceived addition to The Contest and for your customers.

    Considering their rarity, maybe 1% chance or something like that lol, basic kabam.
