We are currently experiencing an issue causing a delay in delivery of Summoner Advancement, the Alliance Quest event, and other 3-Day X-Men use event. We are working to resolve this, but it will likely take a few days. We will ensure that these rewards are delivered to affected Alliances. Please do not change Alliances until your rewards are delivered.

Seriously: Great start to the month

There are times, over the past five years, when I have been absolutely baffled at how Kabam did things. Just left totally baffled.

At the heart of it was always this feeling that there simply wasn’t a recognition of how to generate excitement by doing little things at the right time.

I think whoever was in charge of setting up how this month works...whoever that person or team was, my gosh. NICE WORK.

A 3-star to start the month of one of the featured characters? AWESOME. Let the testing begin!

Milestones available to get the 3-star character awakened through playing the game? PERFECT.

I firmly believe that this game is on the right track — it’s about player excitement. Get people excited to log in and play, and the energy will carry over into everything else.

I think Kabam recognizes that the characters will sell themselves if they just create mechanisms to encourage players to actually test and play the kits.

Nice work! Excited to see what’s to come!

    Yes, agree it is great except

    a bunch of Summoners are not going to experience this without an upgraded device.

    I am so far happy with the update to the menus and this month sounds like it will be an improvement from last month and a right step in game direction.

    Kabam told everyone to update by this evening — that was in an in-game message. I don’t blame them for that

    I didn't get my milestones

    I did; I would assume a support ticket will get you sorted. Seems simple enough

    Title click baited me. Thought it was sarcasm.

    2/10 disappointing topic.

    Yeah I loved this start. Letting players figure out a champ with nothing but abilities and a spotlight is so much more fun.

    Can we just do this for every champ? It’s so much more intersting.

    Totally agree — I have always felt that people need to test these kits for themselves, even if they wind up hating them, instead of letting YouTube test for them

    Not being mean or critical. I just think people need to actually play the game and test the kits themselves

    I completely agree, but not even just that. Seeing people on here working out his rotation rather than watching a CCP video or deep dive is much more exciting. I personally have been testing him for the last 60 minutes or so even though it’s past 2am here. It’s just fun to work it out for ourselves for once.

    I do appreciate CCP videos though. I will still watch them.

    I just came to the forums to say the exact same thing. Well done so far, love Guardian too.

    I see I’m not the only one to awaken him from the get go.

    Exactly — it can be both, but it doesn’t help players or the game when a small group of players drives opinions. Again: Not being mean. I watch a video here and there.

    It’s just healthier for the game to have people with different opinions based on how they play — I read the debate you had about Killmonger vs. Night Thrasher.

    This game needs more of that and less “I saw a video and the character is a dud, even before I tried it”

    Sorry to disappoint; I am critical when it’s fair and positive when it’s deserved

    If you don’t think it’s a good topic or start to the month, that’s cool. Nothing to fight about

    No, quite the opposite, I'm fine with the month starting as it has. I thought it was another "My milestones didn't complete topic" and was ready to bring out the sad plin plin plon music and tiny violins 😂
    Cool, cool — glad. I definitely want to not fight on the boards

    Don't you guys have 3* ags expiring on regular basis? What the point of not using those?

    EXACTLY — I had five of them. I did not hesitate

    Really interesting — there are definitely ways to unlock Big Boy Damage in longer fights. Check out the Canada Man thread for some rotation tips. I don’t want to step on their work

    That works, too — I just took the sig levels and was happy with that, as well

    Just 2 Techs, a generic, one skill and a mutant AG.

    Used one of my Techs.

    Well done Kabam! I'm staggered when seeing a free 3* brand new champ right off the get-go. Let's go!!

    I popped a tech AG on him, but then I realized that I could awaken him through the objectives...
