**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.

Arena Algorithm change?

Fighting in the 5* Featured arena after 40+ rounds I used a R3 5* - R1 5* - R1 5* team and get matched up with a 6* death squad. At first I thought it was a fluke. Won the round. Used a similar team and got matched up with another 6* death squad and lost my streak. Has anyone else experienced this? This is the first time I've run into this and it's beyond frustrating.

  • Using 5* r1 (especially two of them on same match) is a potential death sentence.
    And if you got away with it one time before, doesn’t mean you can count on that being OK other times.

    If this was my first time in the yard....I'd agree with you. However, this has been a constant over months of gameplay with no issues only to have it pop up in the new featured 5* arena. This is why I question if there was a change made.

    Are they the SAME 5* champs your using, or just the same ranks but different champs.

    Could depend on maybe how high up on Rating range the particular ones are that you’re using. ie, your highest 5* r3, versus your lowest rated r3. Could matter as far as if you’re meeting the overall Team Rating requirement for preserving Streak.

    But anyways, I find it safest to only use one 5* r1/15 (or 1/25, forget how high the first rank goes) at a time (and NOT base level r 1/1 unleveled champs). And with other champs that are on the higher end of whatever other Rank you are pulling from.
  • ...and just to be clear, you’re comparing 5* Feature Arena to 5* Feature Arena ? And not versus 4* Feature or T4Basic/Alpha arenas (where 6* are not allowed and so may have slightly lower requirements)

    It's not the same 5* team each time. If it was I'd assume it was an issue with the combined PI being too low. I never use 5* R1 champs that aren't at max level. All champs are at max level for their specific rank. Team was R5 Morningstar (7232) - R1 Unst. Colossus (3081) - R1 Black Panther CW (3094). Second Team - R3 Sabertooth (7005) - R1 Rhino (3100) - R1 Sup Iron Man (3097).

    And yes...it's the 5* featured arena that this happened in. I've run this arena for a long time (5 year vet) and have never had this issue before today.

    My simple ans is: avoid any matchup with two 5*r1 in your team.
    4*r5 better than 5*r1 if you don’t have sufficient higher ranked 5* in your arena team.

    I did after I made my last post. That makes the most sense as to why things changed.
