    So, there’s literally never been any restriction on champs for story mode, and with a week notice, they remove 80-90% of rosters from participation? Even if you want to look at 5/50 and higher champs, for many players, more than half their eligible champs are gone.

    There has been fierce gates in Act 1/2 iirc. Like some paths require you to have a Black widow or Thor in your team. Take a look at the Classic mode of Ultron’s Assult. It’s been there since the start of the game.
    Requiring BW or Thor isn’t as fierce of a gate as you make it seem when there are 2*, 3* and 4* variants of those champions to choose from.
    Also act 1 and 2 only required class gates. Act 4 had champion gates like spidey and colossus

    From everything that Kabam has written, it sure seems like the main motivating goal here is to quickly generate $$$.

    Kabam can't talk about their Disney contract, but for this to be sprung on the community like it has been, it sure seems like something drastic has changed.

    For all we know, Disney could have had a 1000% increase on royalty payments, and now, Kabam is scrambling to generate those funds, and Kabam can't say that this is the main reason for the way they are changing things so quickly.

    We all know that the stated reasons for the changes are pretty much rubbish any way you look at it, saving people from content that is "too difficult" for 4*s is just absurd.

    To generate $$ quickly, they have to limit the usefulness of champs people already have, and they have done that by limiting champs to 5*s or higher.

    This alone won't generate enough $$$, so the next step is to introduce a Cavalier crystal which has a very small chance at a 6*, but, it is still a chance at it. This will get people spending a bit more.

    But, that still isn't enough, so they now must introduce a 5* Basic arena, and since everyone is now forced to go for 5* champs, arena scores for this are going to skyrocket, and people will be forced to pay to keep refreshing them. It wouldn't be shocking to see these scores reach 50M+ rivaling the featured 5* champ as people scramble to, once again, build up their roster.

    The last step in getting more cash is to turn up the offer machine.

    I wouldn't be shocked to see ads coming as well, hopefully, they will be static version that you can just swipe away, but, it sure looks like this is the direction they are headed.

    Please no one respond back to this comment... you have won for sure my friend! Couldn't break it down any better than that in a lifetime lol seriously though... SALUTE TO YOU!

    I think with this being a piece of static content that players can progress to is a good business decision.

    its an awful business decision, people with teams full of 5* r5s and 6* r2s will use less resources than people that have to use 4* champs, so it makes no sense locking out 4* champs other than trying to force them in to having to spend even longer in game because they are slowing progress and causing an even larger gap between the top players and middle
    Isn't that the same in all areas of the game?

    What people are forgetting is all the other content that can still be completed, even if nothing more than a new event and side quest every month. Folks are complaining over new content that have enjoyed everything released up to this point.

    Knocks out alot of skilled ftp players who dont have crazy good 5* 6* rosters who've completed everything else. They also gonna limit it further by making some of it to where you have to have so many 6*s on your team. Unless your insanely good or pay alot your not gonna have that many good 6*s

    Completed everything else? Like 100% act 5, lol and variant? Without a single good 5/65? Sure thing.

    It's safe to assume that the exclusion of 4* champs will directly correlate with the new standard of difficulty that will be set by this new endgame oriented piece of content.

    Therefore the safest and most rational conclusion is:

    If you feel directly restricted by the exclusion of these champs, your roster isn't ready to tackle this piece of content.

    Same with lol. Same with variant.

    Seriously, I've seen players jump on the bandwagon that aren't even uncollected yet. At least try to keep it real, folks.
    You can complete all of that content with 4*s you don't need 5*s and 6*a to 100% complete any of that. Many did lol with a 4* sl and variant is only able to be completed by some with 4*s because the rng has not given them counters to content in 5* and above. Saying a players profile is lacking because of bad rng has zero bearing on whether they have the skills and determination to do act 6 if they aren't being penalized by this gate
    That doesnt matter. Completing Act 5 100% gives you 4 5* Champs and it takes a while to do so you get additional rewards from monthly events. Same with Variant and LoL gives even more 5 stars. If you rush trough act 5 and ignore monthly events then its your fault if you dont have a big roster

    Not that everyone may have the skill to finish Act 6 with 4 stars, but daredevils like Seatin who do 3 star Master mode challenge etc should have an option.

    Also, I am sure Kabam hasnt thought this through, or hasnt crunched numbers, I feel less people gamble away money units on their filthy grandmaster crystals, and more people would spend on energies, boosts, health and revive pots etc. if they are close to reaching a valuable milestone.

    Limiting 4* means some champs such as Thor, SW etc. won’t be available since they’re not available as 5* yet. Perhaps they will be by then. I’m still working on 100% for Act 5 and don’t expect to have to do much with Act 6 for a while although I do have many 5* and 3 6*.

    @Kabam Miike so are you saying that in future content you are going to see 5 stars as an obsolete pile of trash and in future acts you are going restrict them as you are doing right now with the four stars, and if you are planing to restrict them for some paths in act 6 you are going to cause rage to the majority of the community and players

    They very much could, and at some point likely will. It rather dampens any desire to get new champs and rank them up knowing you may not be able to use them in any new content... and if you are at that point you likely don't need them for old content you have completed.. or events/challenges.. unless those start coming with restrictions as well.

    Might as well just charge one time fees to unlock quests at this point.

    Ha Ha If you have 5* Colossus, Cyclops, H. Duck, HB, and Antman you could still buy your way through it
