**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.
More information here.
**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

Gold problem in the contest

Is it me not grinding the arena enough apart from the milestones or Is there a serious gold problem in the contest ?

    It's also spending habits.

    I grind arena quite a lot and I also do content faster than most. I am in the situation where I always have just enough gold for my projects.

    I got a couple million gold from the gifting even and I've been fine ever since, but I see your problem.

    I found myself less at a gold problem these days and more at a drought of mid level rank up materials. T1a usually but also t4b time to time and that is bound to get worse with no t4b in AQ rewards anymore.

    Personally I have found with gold that if you arena the lower milestones on a few of them and keep the grind on content you can maintain hitting milestones on level up events every time they drop. This varies what I am leveling up of course but I have kept this model for some time and stay between 22 mil and 25 mil most of the time.

    Now I built the reserve 20+ mill on saving gold crystals for a year and opening up with December gold boost. I also saved BC for 2 months prior to gold boost as well.


    As a for instance I have brought 3 champs straight to 5* r5 in the last month and still see my gold in the same 1 mil or so range on average

    To answer the OP, yes, there is a gold bottleneck in the game. Yes, it's there by design. No, they have no intention of making it more accessible. This topic has been beaten into the ground, dug back up, and beaten back into the ground. Unless you are a consistent spender, went nuts on the gifting event, or grind arenas until your life no longer has meaning, you will have to accept the fact that ranking up champions is going to take you a VERY long time, and you need to be extremely selective about which ones you choose to rank up.

    Once you start focusing on five star and six star champs only is when it seems to become a real issue. The gold price to rank these champs up skyrockets compared to four stars.

    That's because they're supposed to cost more. They're designed to take longer to Rank.

    Right, but at least for me, that means having catalysts in my overflow and being forced to play a game mode I find boring and repetitive (Arena) to use them. They should at least introduce some sort of gold quests or better gold crystals for people who hate arena grinding.

    People hate it because it takes time and effort. They want an alternative method that takes less effort and time. The Arenas are part of the game. They're also the largest source of Gold. I have no objections to another way to accumulate Gold, so long as it takes roughly the same amount of time and effort to collect Gold. Otherwise half the people are Grinding and earning it, and the other half are taking a shortcut.

    I have no problem earning it. I just don't like playing endless rounds of Arena to do it. I'd even rather do something like the Mole Man quests. The only Arena I find interesting is 5* because you actually get some challenging matchups, but I only have so many fighters I can put in it. All the lower arenas are guaranteed wins against low level fighters with no nodes or anything to make it interesting.

    There’s always going to be a bottleneck of something in this game, whether it’s gold, iso, catalysts......think those are it, you could split the catalyst category in t1a, t4b, t4c, t2a, t5b, t5c......etc.......etc. It’s not important, what does count is how you deal with it.

    Just play some arena when you’re watching a movie or listen to a podcast, I usually do arena with Brian Grant on youtube, it’s fun and he really loves puns
