What is the best content in MCOC?

As of today, May 23, 2020, I think the best content - far and away - are the Variants.

I’m almost done fully exploring Variant 2 (and I’ve already 100% completed Variants 3 and 4) and I just find this content so satisfying. The reasons:

1. It’s difficult but not so outlandishly specific that it can only be completed by huge rosters, high skill, and units.
2. The Rewards are absolutely correspondent to the challenge level. Those Rank Up gems are perfect rewards that increase a person’s roster and give immediate benefit upon receiving them.
3. They’re quirky. With the exception of some unwisely constructed paths (e.g., 1 Star Hulk path in Variant 4), the requirements for champions - whether they are based on size or class or Star - are really fun and open the game up to new experiences.

Admittedly, I’ve heard horror stories about Variant 1 and I haven’t even attempted it. But I’m almost done with my favorite part of the game and then I’ll be stuck at a dead end with 6.2 and Variant 1.

Let’s give Kabam credit for the Variants and encourage this type of gameplay.

Story mode is a horrible experience that I don’t even want to attempt now that I’m at 6.2.

Incursions are fun but they still suffer from a lack of great rewards and reliance on partners (which can really sabotage the experience).

Arenas are just boring and only used by me when I need units.

The Monthly Events are great but I’m always 100% done with Master and Uncollected by the middle of the month and then it’s just the side event (which can be okay depending on the month).

Long form content (RoL, LoL, AoL) is very specialized and too time consuming.

And AQ and AW have already had their criticisms lodged against them (although hopefully they will become more pro-player)

    @Kabam Miike This is the content that the community would love to see more of. It’d be great to see this type of stuff in Story Mode.

    Most content in game is stale, boring, slow... not to mention time investment that is unrealistic. I have been playing since spring 2016. If it wasn't for having 3 accounts I would have quit years ago. The time it takes for a casual free to play player to get gold, resources and champs is a joke. When I would feel stuck on my main account I would switch to an alt just so I could feel like I accomplished anything.

    Where is the option for none. It's all the same. Boring tedious and not rewarding.

    Variants, because they are unlike what we've seen before in MCOC. They are difficult because of the restrictions they provide on your roster, but the restrictions are fair and somewhat enjoyable.
    The developers have shown us how creative they can be and that's why me and many others are looking forward to Variant 5.

    Variants, for me, have been the only good content in over a year

    Variants are for sure the best content along with Labyrinth and act5 for me. Challenging and hard but far from bs.

    Ofc Variant content. Also compared to variant quests, other content feels like they should not even exists sometimes.

    Btw Variant 1 is not that bad. When it came out even the best players had at most 4 maybe 5 5/65 champions and many had to do it using 5/50 4 stars, like me I used 5/50 Void, Gulk, CapIW, Magik, SW, SL, Taskmaster because I only had two 5/65 champions, Medusa and Starky. That is why people had such a hard time with it at first, the spite Domino, buffet Korg and 3.3 Ultron boss are mean though, there were no shock immune champions useable in that quest when it first came out, even the Electro buff came a few weeks after V1, so EMP mod was practically use Gulk, manage Medusa and get Armor Shatter or die quickly at first. When you look at it now, the rosters are highly stacked to deal with even the worst combination. Yes it is still the hardest Variant but if I did it today from the beginning I would surely use 90% less units to finish it.

    Variants are the best.

    Act 5 was fun, 5.3 was a bit of a drag.

    My little symbiote was awesome side quest and I love incursions for the most part.

    Variant 4 specifically with its rarity gates that makes your full roster important. I would love to see more of this in the future, especially with all the new 2*s we got this month.

    Completely agree - I like making all stars relevant. It’s what I hoped they would do with Act 7 since it’s supposed to be a new beginning.

    Problem is kabam have stopped treating this like a game, they should stop making game hard and try to focus on fun element, if they are not bringing in innovation we are gonna lose this game in distinct future.

    As of now content wise incursion are fun but they are non rewarding and time Consuming

    Where is the option for side events that come out with EQs? Those are my favourite piece of content because they have a different style than most of the content. This year we had some really awarding side events like the arcunopia side event and mole mand side event and this rifts side event which is most fun for me.

    I have also voted for variants. With the exception of variant 1, that I have only completed not explored, I have done them all with great plessure. You still are limited in the stuff you can use effectively, but there are atleast a high number of options for them all. Excluding 1 path in variant 4. That I could luckily do because I have never sold a champ.
    I actually do like arena, I like to use different teams and a place that allows me to use the champs I really like to play.
    Story is oke for what it is. But I do agree on act 6. I`m working on it because I want to atleast complete it. But I do not really enjoy it. Just powering through.
    It is quite funny what you say about ROL/LOL/AOL being time consumming but your previous point was that half way down the month you basically have no content because you are done with master and uncollected.

    To the OP I would like to suggest doing easy with 1 stars, normal with 2 stars and heroic with 3 stars. Really fun to do. Fills up the gap near the end of the month, and creates a situation where you can play with different champs that you just want to try. And the completion of those low difficulties will give you some alpha's, 180 units and some other stuff.
