**RESOLVED ISSUE WITH SIDE QUEST KEYS**
The game team has resolved this issue. Keys will be distributed via in-game messages and the quest timer will be extended.
More information and timeline here.
*This includes currently unclaimable keys as well*
**WINTER OF WOE - BONUS OBJECTIVE POINT**
As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

Kabam, please hear me out

I am having real self control problems with the cavalier crystals where I am spending way above my means. Is it possible for us to "ban ourselves" (for a set time of our choosing) from being able to purchase them? The same way players can do this in online poker games? The cav crystal is really really hurting me.

    Spend all units, so you can never buy another crystal, or just don't play the game at all.
    That option will not happen in a game like this. Is really unnecessary

    It's easier said than done for me. I need to ban myself or have the cav crystal disabled somehow.

    Kabam is this possible? I'm really hurting my finances right now. It's really bad.

    You can request your Payment Method be disabled. Can't recall if you do it on the platform side, or your Financial Institution.

    Bank would be the way to go. You can Block all future charges for a specific transaction.
  • GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 36,119 ★★★★★
    That can be done over the phone with mine.

    I mean, obviously it goes without saying, they can't teach self-control. I'm just offering suggestions. Sometimes all people need is a mental block from the red tape. The more effort it takes, the less likely they are to do it. Unless we're talking full-blown Addiction, in which case there is very little that can be done until the person is willing to get help.

    You probably meant a different type of help tho didnt you

    Yes. Lol. I meant like Gamblers Anonymous.
    Bit of a side line, but I think it's a valuable discussion, so give me a second to type.

    Sounds like you don’t really want to have free will or something. Sounds like you want someone to provide the goods and services you need and you don’t really own anything. Does a place like that exist?

    That’s just cruel

    Dang, get help son.

    This is actually really sad. I think you should delete the game, tbh... and maybe reach out for help.
  • PsychoakumaPsychoakuma Posts: 564 ★★
    Wow sorry to hear that. Good luck with the spending. maybe delete the game for a few weeks.

    Sounds like you need a support system in place OP. Whether it’s a relative, counselor, support group. If you’re struggling on your own, get help. Gambling addiction is real, and this sounds like this is falling into that category.

    However Kabam is a corporation looking to make a profit. They aren’t going to want to give us easy means to stop spending. So you’re likely going to need to find a way outside of the game for help.

    Take your credit card info off your phone. Has worked for some people I know that have spent a ton on the game

    I think KABAM should sponsor a therapy session for their addicted gamers. Like some sort of a CSR program that help addicted MCOC players that's having a problem with controlling their behaviour to click the pay button every time they see a crystal offering. MCOC is one part like gambling so it almost probably similar like gambling addiction.

    They would never. Just look at all the unwanted pop-up offers most of the community is annoyed of. But they still won't get rid of them.. This guy needs some outside help for sure.

    Kabam is not really responsible for someone having a Gambling Addiction. It's not even Gambling, it has elements of chance. Unfortunately, that's just a part of our makeup. Some people have internal conditions that make it dangerous to engage in certain activities.

    The same way that some people can drink responsibly, while others are Alcoholics.

    How is it not gambling?
    Playing a game of chance, yes, Gambling involves the potential for monetary payout. We're just playing a game of chance. There's really nothing we walk away from it with.
