    Get your alliance prestige up and you'll start earning map 6 crystals end of the week.. or buy them from glory store.

    Map 4 and 6 tends to give you better alpha drop rates. Map 5 🤷🏻‍♂️ guess you get a little from the map 4 if you're lower tiers, or more from map 6 crystals - good motivator to push on I guess.

    I understand where you're coming from and it would be nice, but how many gimme mores are there on the forums? You get some in map 4/6 end of the week and glory if you wish to purchase more.

    Wait until you get to Map 7 crystals, the drop rates in there will make you cry. I prefer map 5/6 crystals to map 7 most the time

    @DoubleDelta map 6 crystals don't give t1a though? And map 4s for some reason still give t1a fragments. With how many alphas are required for a single 5* rank up you'd think they'd be made a little more available. All you get is 3/week from arenas, 1 from 3day events and however many are in the monthly EQs. 5, 6, 7 AQ crystals don't have them, AQ peak, honor, and ranked rewards don' have them, and it's a dice roll on side events. November didn't have any.

    To fully rank a 5* you need 22 t1as. Compare that to 12 t4b, 13 t4cc, and 10 t2a. The most needed catalyst (by a landslide) should not be less accessible than the next when the difference is so large.

    @solopolo yes map 6/7 you don't get T1A you get T2A. Personally I have no issues with T1A and tend to have them in the stash unless I go on a massive ranking spree.

    Yes theyre the most commonly used with T4B, but also the easiest to obtain - glory store they start at 200 a piece. Monthly EQ you can earn 5. Weekly arena 3.

    Break it down quickly:
    Arena 3x4 = 12
    EQ = 5
    Glory store = 8+

    That's at least 25 T1A per month. Now in comparison would you like to calculate how long to earn the T5B at 2 per R5, or 10 T2A per R5?

    That's also excluding any solo missions, alliance quests, or ones earned in additional side missions. They are one of the easiest resources to earn within the game if you need them.

    @DoubleDelta T4B are much easier to farm up than T1a, don't known what you're talking about there. T4b are everywhere. And 17 guaranteed t1as a month is pretty sad. That doesn't even make 4 5* rank ups from any rank.

    Buying alphas from the glory store means you're not spending it on other more valuable resources i.e. AQ items, t2a, t5b drags, and you have to choose between taking t1as or t4bs if you're buying either. And I don't see why you're comparing t1as to t2as and t5bs, both of which are infinitely more valuable and only necessary for the highest level rank-ups, while t1as are necessary at all levels.

    AQ's don't give any alphas whatsoever outside of low level AQ crystals, and neither do solo events. Greater solo crystals have alphas at 0.45% chance, which is less than 1 alpha per 200 crystals. And like I said, side quests are random. We didn't have any last month and it doesn't look like we're getting any this month.

    They have flooded game with alphas. That’s only half of what’s in the stash

    @Batman05 "I have alphas, therefore they're abundant". What? Look at the numbers. Stacking yourself on alphas off buying offers and monthly EQ doesn't say anything. That's all you'll be getting this month outside of arenas and spending glory that could be spent on other items.

    @solopolo look at the maths above. Kabam arent going to give away resources because you cant earn the easiest resource in the game.

    They give you T1A and then you'll be wanting T2A and T5B for free. Take what they give you and earn it, they have given you the option to purchase T1A for free with glory, they give you 4 arenas a month which you can complete in 1 day easily. They give you a load in EQ..

    what would you like? Oh hey, heres 20 free alphas every month in your inbox just because we know you dont want to grind? Moan about T2A we'd understand, moan about T5B, we'd understand.. but T1A you will get no sympathy unless you're a new player - in which case youre still not earning the T5B and T2A you need in comparison of what you want in T1A

    @DoubleDelta what math? All you have is arbitrary numbers out of the glory store and the 17 you get once a month. This has nothing to do with asking for free resources, it's not _possible_ to get more, because they don't exist. Just because you rank up 2 champs a month and are overflowing on every resource in the game, that doesn't mean others aren't affected.

    Mid-tier players actually need to rank up 5*s, unlike the top players who have every champ they need at r4/5 or in 6* and constantly have to wait to pull champs worthy of ranking up.

    When I'm actively playing and maxing out in every piece of content the game has and still have to wait 5-6 days between rank-ups simply because I don't have the sigil active, you're really gonna call that asking for free stuff?

    And the only suggestion you can come up with for getting more alphas is to play a lower AQ map, which lowers our overall score per season, lowering our glory, ranked and milestone rewards, all for a crystal that has a microscopic chance of dropping a full alpha, and more often than not will only drop fragments in insignificant amounts. Ok.

    Just remember the game isn't meant to cater to your needs alone. There are millions playing, and different levels of progression will have different needs.

    I have 4 R5 5*s and 4 R2 6*'s so I'm not stood waiting for champs to rank up.

    Your logic is that you want to rank up 4 5*s a month?? Youre dreaming.. you get enough per month to rank up 1 5* from 1 to 5 per month. But there is no way on earth youre getting enough T5B or T2A to rank a 5* up to R4 in one month - so youre left with R3 at most, with maybe 1 R4/5 every few months. In which case you can do at least 2 R3's per month, spending about 470 glory per week. You earn well over 2k glory a week.

    Yes there are loads of people playing, and at a lower level I'd understand complaining about not getting enough T1A. But if youre looking at R5'ing champions and Map 5/6 crystals, then your issue should be T2A and T5B, not T1A.
    If you're only looking at reaching R3/4 then map 4/5 with the occasional 6 crystal should be more than sufficient.

    Simply what I am saying is you're saying there is no way to earn enough T1A. Yet I have shown you, that for a minimum glory spend you can earn 25 per month. Without taking into account additional event quests, solo missions, alliance events, dungeons or anything else they give you, which can jack the numbers up drastically.

    If you want the resources they are there to be earned, but you need to actually put the work in not expect rewards to be jacked up specifically for you. Because in 6 months you'll be posting on here oh in an entire weeks AQ ive only earned 7k T2A running 5x6 how am I meant to R4/5 a champion?

    So alliance event wise, every 3 days you get a new quest with 1 T1A along with 1 in summoners advancement. Thats an additional 14 per month. So were without dungeons, side missions or additional event quests..
    Total month stands at 39 so far, or 31 if you dont want to spend glory..

    Should I keep counting for you? You cannot expect kabam to give out more resources when they already give out an excess of them, grind and you will receive 🤷🏻‍♂️

    I don’t buy any from glory. I always buy three sets of t5 and the rest goes into t2 alphas. T1 alphas are strung all over the game. I have 35 in the stash right now. And it will be more after this months eq
  • NMEONESNMEONES Posts: 260 ★★
    I’m always short on t1a. I get every t1a available as well. Lately even been buying all ten from glory. Last few months I’ve had t2a in overflow and starving for t1a... doesn’t help that now I got even more t2a and t5b in overflow from Black Friday. Starving for t1a.
