Am i the only one who hated this month's side events and rifts?

The rifts were so frustrating to me, i always get the same unneeded trash all over again. I just felt frustrated when i kept getting bad, useless rifts, and the chronometers take days to save up so it's not really worth it. I just don't like events that involve RNG. Maybe i just have bad luck, do you guys like it?

    Yeah definitely RNG, I have had some good luck for once
    I got x2 5 star awakening gems (skill and tech) - used on Aegon finally.
    x2 t5b shards
    10,000 5 star (Got a yellow jacket)
    X1 Tier2 alpha
    Hope it gets better for you!

    To paraphrase Charlie Brown on Halloween, "I got a Groot", from my 1st ever 5* featured.

    I liked em, especially get a new 2 star team that I could immediately max out and try. That was tops.

    My luck was awful. Then it did get better by the end. So why the rewards ended up ok. The rifts are very boring.

    I liked the aspect to hunt down specific champs. But they should have omitted the intermediate mission to gather the information, forcing us to use 2*, and do another abundant mission. The tickets should just get you into the reward mission ....

    Else it was lazy game design, reiterating MODOKs lab...

    I do not like the high RNG aspect. At least they tried to reduce it a little, but the cost for the chronometer was to high.

    The event has some good sides and might have looked fresh on paper, but I have to agree that it is boring. It seems to satisfy the “less grinding“ request but not an ideal execution. My luck hasn’t been that bad though, I pulled 2 or 3 5 stars (a Luke Cage which is great and a dupe for Domino) plus a mutant gem with the chronometer.

    So far, the best I've got is mutant awakening gem (from chronometer) and 10.000 5* shards. I got a 5* Thing from it. So I guess I got lucky.

    It’s really tedious and 4 energy sucks for lower accounts.

    They haven’t really been fun but they gave a lot of great rewards. Rewards are great but the fun factor just isn’t there.

    Zola nailed it.

    Get ready for next month's third iteration of the side quest no one likes!

    I got lucky with my rewards, so I’m pretty happy with it.

    I just wish they would get more creative with the side events and quests in general.

    Everything so repetitive and grindy.

    Content wise- there was zero content in the whole side quest. It was just a very long winded way of opening a crystal.

    Rewards wise - RNG was good for me.
  • Osfan8Osfan8 Posts: 712 ★★★
    I got the mutant AG I wanted using the chronometer, 4 t2a and 1200 6* shards so far. No complaints. Plus a bunch of fun new 2*s for the next quest or arena that limits champ rarity.

    Cant say I hated it because truth is it’s easy, not super time consuming, and gave me a 5* awakening gem plus a decent chunk of 6* and 5* rewards. Is it boring yes but I’m ok with boring versus annoying or frustrating from my side event(except real challenge quest content which I cannot fathom why seems it is completely cut at this point).

    The rng rewards I always hate but so is this game these days. Rifts are an easy go to and have been reoccurring event for some time now.

    I already can’t wait for next month when everyone is pissed because the randomizer side events with randomized champions and buffs is usually not a crowd pleaser. You can reroll(and the reroll function probably still has the bug that it resets when you leave and come back)but when you can’t even plan before dropping in is usually painful and gets a lot of flack(because truth is it sucks). Randomized rewards can be unfair but randomized level of challenge for the same rewards usually is more painful for everyone.

    Realistically we are just playing side events slightly altered out of the same playbook for the most part from the last 2 years. I’m ok with that and would rather have the easy ones for the easy rewards versus the harder ones(especially since the rewards are Relatively about the same typically).

    I haven’t got any sig stones so I can’t complain about it.

    If I go by the rewards I got from the rifts, it was an average month. I decided not to go with the chronometer, as I already have the skill and mutant awakening gems for Aegon and Omega if KABAM's RNG ever decides to bless my account with those champs.

    So far I've done 16 epic rifts and the rewards I've gotten:
    1K 5* shards - 8
    2K 5* shards - 2
    T5B - 1
    5* Featured crystal - 1 (Electro)
    100 6* shards - 1
    1K 6* shards - 2
    T2A - 1

    Now that I'm thinking of it I could have gone for Cosmic gem with chronometer for Cap Marvel but I don't have her either and who knows how long will it take to pull her too and it also meant less 2* crystals.
    I love collecting 2* champs and this was a good event for that, so many new 2* champs and immediately ranked them all up and used on rifts too much fun.

    Everyone is running after 5* and 6* champs and gems and here I'm having fun with new 2* Hyperion & Iceman and other unique ones. :smiley:


    2* Hyperion is too much fun

    I agree that Hate is too strong a word, but it was definitely a PITA to have to fight specific champs, get the pass, go into a quest to get the intel, wash-rinse-repeat to get enough intel to get a chronometer and then do the rift. Should've been fight specific champ, get intel and 2* crystal, fight rift, get rewards.

    I repeatedly kept getting sig stones, eventually had to save up for chronometer which got me a skill AG that I used in awakening aegon.
