Tier 2 Alpha (T2A) - what is the cost going forward?

After narrowly managed to save 1 T2A from expiring, I looked up on the cost of this item. Whoa ... :o
Apart from the 2017 offer, cheapest I can locate is 7000 units (2019).

2017 offer


Sep 2018


Feb 2019


I have only 6k units. If one pops up on July 4, I hope I have sufficient to cash in.

How much do you value one T2A?

    True it depends on where you are at in game, we rank top 90 which is like 13k shards from rank rewards alone, then there is whatever you get from map crystals and glory store so personally i dont value them that high at all, but if you are a more chill player it wouldnt be a bad idea, just not for 10k units, at least then there would have to be a full t5b. 10k units is over 3 odins after all

    I only run 5x5. I get 9 map 6 crystals a week. With EQ, glory, side quests I still think it’s easy to get 4 a month.

    That ain’t true that really rng denpeend then I’m get 16 map6 a week and get 12k pair week if I’m lucky.

    T2A is worth about 500 units to me as far as I'm concerned. Most of the unit offers on catalysts are way overpriced in my view.

    If you think about it, a top 90 AQ alliance gets about 0.5 T2A a week. If a T2A is on sale for 5k units, that is 2500 units for half a T2A - is it worth paying 2500 units to get one week's advance on AQ rewards? Not to me.

    Same logic for T5b currently. Easily getting about 6-8k T5b a week from AQ. Most of the recent offers have been about 1.5k units for 6750 T5b shards or something like that. Again - is it worth paying 1.5k units for one week's advance on AQ rewards? Not to me.

    Obviously this metric will change depending on where you are in the game - if you are in a lower alliance and not getting that much T2A/T5B, then the value proposition may make way more sense to you if you are getting 3-4 weeks worth of AQ rewards for those units.

    I say this only to give an indication as to how i measure value in resources in game - in terms of how many weeks of AQ rewards it would be to me.

    I think you have a numerical error somewhere in your calculations.

    I run 66555 and can get about 2 each month. I would value a T2a about 1k units tops.

    If it cost over that much for a t2a in any offers it's a easy pass.

    Uh don’t tell me it ain’t true when I’ve done it for months....
    As I’m said then you hav disgusting luck in you map6 cystal becasse. Two time this much I’m got 2k out of 12 map6 cystal so it might be true you get 4 pairs mouth I’m ain’t that lucky arund 2 and a half from EQ and rank rewards from AQ don’t count The glory.

    Yeah I’m counting everything over the month. I probably average 6 or 7k a week from map crystals. I buy 7 or 8 with glory because we run item free wars. I think that’s where I’m coming out ahead. I guess most people are spending their glory on pots and basic.
    I’m use them a bit defrinds pots for AQ somtimes I’m mis op. But yeah the map6 cystal is the rng wher mind simple don’t giv as much

    T2A cost and availability is clearly a “progression gate” that Kabam is managing. Don’t spend money on them.

    T2a in the short past was a $50 cad offer. But with map 7 we get 1 2ta+ a week. So my value of a t2a in the store is $5. Anything more and not worth it. Although I’d still spend $10-$20 on one because I can never have enough t2a.

    Rank-up gems are the future.

    Seriously, good job on making T2a more available. There’s a lot that can be done with a R4 5*.

    Found another offer. About 2k units for one T2A.
