    I ran the map 5 times today no energy. I think Kabam heard our energy complaints, which is good. Got 10 sig stones and 7500 t2 alpha. Not bad.

    So then we can use these Anomalies during any of the Nexus of all Realities Quests, and not specifically the one that follows it? Like you could save all 20 from Epic to be used on the final Nexus the 4th week?

    I'm pretty sure it was always intended to be zero energy. There's no way they would have made the map that really long spiral if it cost any energy.

    The could have heard our complaints and removed the enemies and energy cost too. You don't know and neither do I which is why I said I think they did. Of course our voices being heard hurts your narrative so please keep the company line that you don't get paid for lol.

    I think most people have AW season finishing up and would rather save these tickets to use their best champs for the off season, which is what I am doing too, although Man-Thing and the Icarus node is not that hard tbh you could probably do it with your B or C team.

    Since the Nexus map lasts for 48 hours, someone with their best champs locked up in war could choose to do it during the placement phase, since there would always be at least 24 hours when war attack wasn't active in every nexus part of the event.

    Ah yeah good point, thanks.

    Correct me if I am wrong please, I want know if my explanation regarding the event rewards and energy costs is right:

    As an endgame player, I am only interested in the Master difficulty of the Alternate Reality to get the t1a's and the epic difficulty of the Nexus quest to get the 5 star sig stones, which I can run at most 5 times on each week on the days it is open given that I complete the Epic difficulty of the Alternate reality quest each day. I get 5 Tier 4 anomalies for each of one days the Alternate Reality quest is open so I should be able to get 10 5 star sig stones each week by using the 5 anomalies I get from completing the epic difficulty of the Alternate reality every day.

    I also want to explore the master difficulty each day and I have no interest in any of the other quests. Then this adds up to 54 energy per day, 36 for completing epic and 18 for exploring master, on the 5 days the Alternate reality quest is on and assuming the quest length is the same a total of 90 energy, 18 for each 5 runs, for the 2 days of the Nexus event. So this gives roughly 51-52 energy per day each week, where the total energy requirement is 360 energy for the 7 day period.

    If my calculations and understanding of the event is correct the energy requirements for "meh" rewards seem to be very high. I do not have the Sigil, so I can get at most 240 energy per day given that I never miss a single second on the energy timer. So 240*7 gives 1680 energy each week and 360/1680*100%=21% of the maximum energy I can get. Given that I only run a very low percentage of this event quest, even that costs me 21% of my maximum energy, which I obviously cannot get since I am human and I sleep and lose some energy. There is also the monthly event quest and I like to run Heroic, Master and Uncollected each month so the energy costs are absolutely ridiculous if I understood the mechanics of this event quest correctly. I should not be required to buy energy refills or the Sigil to run the quests but this makes me feel like the developers think we should do that.

    After running the event for 6 days, I have had a slight change of heart about this event quest. I actually decided to run every difficulty at least once to get 40 units from normal, heroic, master and epic difficulty completion and I explored the epic difficulty to get the ticket on all 5 days with the Alternate reality quest. Today I ran the Nexus one 5 times and got my 10 five star sigs along with some gold, t2a and t5b. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that the Nexus events cost zero energy to run and I was very happy that it included my favorite node in the game which is Icarus, I love using Ghost against that node.

    On the days with Alternate reality quests I used a total of 90 energy 4*18=72 for exploring every difficulty and 18 more for completing epic. I usually had 70 energy when the event reset so I started exploring each difficulty and by the time I explored epic, I gained 2 energy so that I had a total of 72 energy for 4 explorations. I then used an energy refill to explore epic and used the rest of my energy on some quest in the EQ. Given that the Nexus events cost 0 energy, I actually used 450 energy on this event on 7 days (actually 6 but I won't be spending any tomorrow so it is actually 7). Since I earn 40*5=200 units for this event I actually have a surplus of energy which I can obtain via the units I get from the event. So I think that the event is not as bad as it seems energy-wise atm. Rank up rewards and the 5 star sig stones are pretty decent. The lack of shards is still a bit disheartening but mods have explained why it is that way so I am ok with that.

    The only criticism I have at this point is about the time consuming and repetitive aspects of the event. It takes at least 20 min to do what I explained above so the quests could have been a bit shorter in length while costing the same energy. Also running the same quest on auto-fight for the 2 low difficulties and running the other 2 with very minimal effort on 5 days gets a bit boring and the tag/class restrictions do not add anything more than a hinderance. If the eq looked a bit like the Trials of the King/Mad Titan it could have been more exciting. Just my 2 cents about the event...

    My thoughts exactly, that time could be better spent doing arena for the units

    Something tells me that the final day map was supposed to have more enemies but was tweaked after the feedback ... :D

    Now it looks like a pointless exercise in watching the screen make 20 moves.

    You should add shards as well. It’s never too late you can do it from week 2

    It is so easy to say that this event is worth it when you have several maxed 5*. I have only one. Starting to get more R4 5* but they are always tied up in war and AQ. Even when they aren't, the class and hero/villain requirements are making it very difficult to complete without the need for revives. Using R3 5* and R5 4* just does not cut it. I know the difference. I can breeze through the content with my Venom as R5 5*. These requirements are already giving others an instant advantage. This game is like: "The rich get richer." Maybe others would like to improve their team.

    Okay, stupid question. The "anomoly" tickets we get, is there a chance to use them each week or only at the end of the month?

    It's every week. You can collect up to 5 tickets from each level over 5 days, then the nexus quest is up for 2 days.

    It says day 6&7 award an "anomaly" but today is day 4 (Mystic/Tech/Skill Villain) and you get an anomaly for 100% completion (both paths). Seems like you get one each day. When do you get to use them to face Man-Thing? At the end of the month? Description seems a bit confusing and inaccurate. Please clarify.

    Day 1 to 5 award an anomaly. You use them on Day 6&7.

    Thank You Kabam!!! No champ requirement on the quest today. I want to personally thank the team for listening.

    Pretty sure the first day of the cycle is the only one without heavy requirements, I don't think they got rid of anything unfortunately.

    I am unable to use my 5* maxed out Sym Sup because he is neither a #Hero nor a #Villian. Is this intended?
