**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.
More information here.
**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

    You can literally spend a few moments each day and get free units from Arena. Spend like an hour a day and you will get all the units you need. It's not like they're removing free units from the game. Put in the wrench time, you still don't have to spend.

    You’re completely missing the point.

    They're digging such a deep hole for themselves that they make the Mariana trench look like a hole a kid made in a sandbox. Really piling on the negatives quite fast there Kabam.

    So we had to spend $50 to get this and we are given $10 in "compensation" for an item that has proven to be valuable in me completing content like Act 6 with the help of alliance mates? Look, you take away something like asking for help sure, we get it. But we had to use actual cash to pay you and you throw a 5th of what we paid as a guise for compensation with knowing you've updated ToS after 12.0 that in-game content can change at any time so no one will be able to get a refund. The past month has been a spit in the face for players like me and many others who have been honest and committed for years. You take our 4 stars we spent resources on (when they were 'scarce'), give new players easier access to newer players because the resources are 'easier' for us to get and because we completed them early on we don't have the need for these resources (?) then tell us that "it's only 10 PHC" but still reward us with PHC twice a week for week-long events, and finally just go ahead and take an item that literally only people who have spent on your game own and give some meager 'compensation' because people were abusing it so we are all punished? I've said it before but now I know for a fact:
    you really don't like us anymore.

    The gifting badge was not $50 it was an add on to the tony stark briefcase unit package
    My apologies, it was $30. I am upset because I spent specifically for the item that was included; that is where many people's irritation lies.

    This unacceptable. This will affect a lot more people that use the GB legitimately than any « fraud » that’s being committed. Stop taking drastic action that affect the rest of the community because you can’t find a way to fix those that are abusing it. Example had we not had gifting badges we wouldn’t have been able to finish our map 6 today because someone had used up all his resources and he needed to take a node out. I hope Kabam will reconsider because this is just not right. Already resources cost so many units for little payoff, now this?

    I fully disagree with this action abuse or not... personally I could care less about someone getting items for cheaper or whatever they were doing perhaps we should be being given better unit deals... just saying the last time I saw a 2 for 1 offer has to have been 3 years ago... but anyway back to topic...
    Our Alliance has been gifting things to each other for years to get content finished from energy refills to alliance revives to help us complete it as a group.
    This is a bad choice again...

    May someone explain what fraud are we talking about? It's just for people sending stuff to their second account???

    ^This. I never saw examples of what this "fraud" was.
    My guess is people created fake accounts, used said fake accounts to illegally hack units, then gift main account with hacked units from fake account.

    There is no way i would have bought the $30 offer with the 850 units & gifting badge if it weren't for the benefits of the gifting badge. Offering 300 units in return is not cool. I'll be contacting Apple about a refund if we don't get more details on what you plan to do to reinstate the badge functionality.

    At least consider gifting items that were earned in game vs purchased. Gifting alliance mates and friends items that I grinded my time for to get units/items, etc. The gifting badge should allow that.

    I spent 32,99 euro for the gifting badge. Now, you remove it and give me 300 units. I am wondering if I can return 850 units for you, please give me my money @Kabam Miike

    To those asking for a refund of their $30 should kabam also take back the 850 units you received in addition to the gifting badge. The badge was an add on to the package. The units were not an add on to the badge.

    Fine come take my 850 units. I'm about done with this game anyway, and $30 in my pocket sounds nice right about now anyway.

    If 300 units is all the gifting badge was worth then it should never have been in a deal costing actual money. I’d prefer my 30$ back, thx.

    300 units is kinda crappy. Considering we bought the package that contained 850 or however much it is we should be refunded for that unit pack or a full refund of the money we spent. It’s either or. Throwing a random unit number in there is bogus.

    I gave a friend a team revive potion (100 units), he is farming to give me this potion, but how can he give it to me? should I forget the 100 wasted units? you do not think it would be better to warn your "customers" (because that's what we've become, not players, but customers) before blocking badges? no it's much easier to take them for idiots ...

    i understand the issue Kabam is having with people being dishonest but, really 300 units when you need to spend 30 dollars to get the gifting badge if my math is correct we should all be given 850 units. I don't want this to come off as non constrictive but whats the different between people being dishonest and Kabam being dishonest... ill wait its like what's worst a guy that stole a nickel or a dime the end of the day its still stealing.

    nah, they haven't dug a hole at all. To do nothing is digging a hole because it keeps enabling frauds to make money at poor people's expenses. Them taking away the gifting badge to prevent further fraud makes sense. I agree that Kabam needs to catch frauds. They steal from people and use it on this game.

    I want my money back. I’ve spent and embarrassing amount of dough on this game. That ends today. Who does this??? Sending to Apple.

    As a serious infraction and real life consequences of fraud, I applaud Kabam for doing the right thing. Gifting if done right and obviously within the legal bounds of not committing fraud is a great idea. However over the past few years there have been many issues with people abusing this method. The valuation of 300 units seems fair for a gifting badge. Would it have been nice to receive what ever unit value you purchased your first gifting badge at? Sure it would. But for the times that the team does something right that has real world consequences, good for them! They did the right thing! #GiftingGate Good job Kabam!

    I'm a F2P player - except for the $30 I spent on the gifting badge 2yrs ago. I wouldn't have spent a penny except for the added function of the gifting ability because I was leading a top 800 alliance back in the day and I wanted to be able to gift players in my ally. So Kabam can have it's 850 units back and I'll take my 30$ back.

    I bought it as well but I feel the compensation is fair. All this mock outrage is tiresome. Maybe legend runs, aw, and AQ will be a bit more balanced since players will have to use their own resources to get items now that there is one less way to circumvent the system.

    I bought GB to help my friends in the game, swap items to help in AW and AQ, and because an idiot closes events in exchange for game items, will my money go to waste ?!

    Is not enough the constant errors in game you invent another reason to abandon the game ?!

    Trade items in game exists in all games, only now that you have decided to wake up to this?

    You will destroy MCoC soon and you will not be able to complain about anything, because it's ur fault.
