Improvements to T4B Arena

Hello,

I believe the T4B arena could use and needs a revamp.
Or simply just extend the milestones and the rank rewards to be more incentivizing.

For instance, currently, the last milestone of 1.1mil contains is 1 T4B.
How about, extending the milestones to 2.1mil, 3.1mil, 4.1mil, and so on. With perhaps the final milestone being 10.1mil.
With each milestone's reward being 1 T4B.

Rank Rewards wise, perhaps just increase the amount of T4Bs given.

With that being said, I know the lack of T4Bs is exclusively an issue with players that has been around for a few years, but I bet this will be an issue in the near future as more players obtain more and more champs.

    That is way too many T4b from one arena, as it stands now you just gotta be patient. I am closing in to being able to take 3 4* to rank 5 but have to wait till I for that 3rd T4CC and get enough T4B to do each of them, only have 1 or 2 T4B at the moment.

    You have Glory, T4B arena, challenges and monthly quests, Act 4 and Act 5 award T4B, there's the AQ as well.

    I see your point. And this is an issue solely or mostly for the top tier players.
    But as I mentioned, more players will run into this issues as they collect more and more champs, being both 4*s and 5*s.

    Yes, there are many venues to obtain T4Bs currently and I did all of them, but still have 20 various T4Cs in stash with only 3 T4Bs. I purchased as much as I can from Glory Store. Did the arena whenever it is available, and 100% Normal, Heroic, and Master. Finished the Challenges. 100% Act 4. 75% on Act 5 as it does NOT contain any T4B upon 100% exploration, only if you complete. And even AQ only gives one at Rank 2 and down.

    As I said, outside of, perhaps, the top 100 AQ Teams, this most likely is not an issue. But for the 3000 players, it might be.

    And, the T4B and the Catalyst arenas are one arenas that has not been updated or revamped, while other areas in the game has. *Cough* Bases.... *Cough*

    I don't understand the rush to have to rank up everyone as soon as you get them. Enjoy the moment, if you have no champs to rank up, what will you do in the game?

    As it stand right now, ranking champs is the only goal we all share. Everyone has completed different amounts of story mode, event quests, everyone is in different tiers for AQ and AW. If all your champs are maxed out what's left to do in the game after you 100% everything else? Completing different game modes to get the T4 Basics is what keeps me going anyways. If I could get them all from arenas I would have very little difficulty in some parts of the game and be bored, as I'm sure high rated players must feel.

    Man we really need old champs buffed and Bases to come out pronto.

    Completely agree with OP. T4B availability needs to be adjusted. Many of the top players are forced to either let T4C expire, or not open any crystals that contain T4C (or shards of the same). The game is out of balance. Players shouldn't have to let a greater-valued resource like T4C go to waste because a lesser-valued resource is not sufficiently available. I have not opened a single crystal from my past 4 AQs--no map 5 or 6 crystal and no T4C crystals. That's a lot of time and effort to not be able to use the rewards.

    Unfortunately, I suspect this is by design. If you will remember, there used to be many more T4B offers (offers to buy whole ones for money or units, and offers for the daily shard cards that would let you form some over 30 days). We rarely see those offers any more. For so long, players complained about the availability of T4C, so the game team increased the availability of that resource, while reducing the availability of T4B and T1A.

    Still look for improvements to these arenas.

    I think increasing it to 2 t4b for 1.1 mil would make the arena better

    So little!? Why not just make it 100 T4B for clocking 1.1m? LoL

    I think your joke was made before the 6* announcement.

    The asks about more availability of materials don't look so silly right now.

    We can start by asking for assurance that R5 5* wont be allowed in this arena. It's **** that the majority of players are forced to use this arena as the only reliable source of T4B to rank up **** (and probably worthless now except for a handful) 4* and unless you already have a healthy roster of R3+R4 4* you are getting blitzed by 4/55's and having your streak wrecked.

    Fighting 22k rated teams with less than half of that in your top team gets annoying now, it will be awesome when the AI is all at R5

    The two changes this arena needs: update the rank rewards, because a bonus for 10 players, when there are millions of players? WTF? This hasn't been changed since the game started. When there were a few tens of thousands of players, this was fine. Now?

    Suggested changes:
    Percentage based tier rewards
    More tiers providing T4B
    Lower tiers providing T4B shards

    Second change: absolutely need to keep 6* champs out when they arrive! It will become all but impossible then, unless the tier rewards become massively more generous.

    ....

    They are "rushing" because they want to stay among the top 50 or top 100 in AQ. If they are competing in arenas too, then they are "rushing" so they can widen the gap between them and the rest of us when it comes to scoring more points per fight.

    And who wouldn't want the ability to play an arena using only a maxed out (other than sig level) roster? That's what we did with the 3-star arena, right? All we had to use was maxed out 2-stars. Imagine being able to do that in other arenas like the t4b arena.

    As a "bonus", we normal players get to fight against their teams in arenas, increasing our chances that our streaks would end.

    Funny that.

    While the top players are crying that the availability of t4bs are decreasing ("while reducing the availability of T4B and T1A"), the rest of us find it more difficult to obtain. By difficult, I mean more time-consuming since the streaks in the t4b arena keep ending.
