**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.

Still no Variant 5 announcement ?

When can we expect the official announcement for Variant 5 ?

Kabam Mike said this last week and we are still waiting πŸ‘€

So I combined two seemingly unrelated threads here to answer both of the questions. One about a rewards buff, and one about a new difficulty level. The answer to both is a "Yes. Kind of."

We've still got an announcement to come, so I won't say much, and will disappointingly leave more of the questions you follow this up with unanswered (because I love suspense!).

Variant Difficulties started as a challenge for our End Game players. There was no Event Quest or Side Quest Difficulty aimed at them, and once they finished LOL and Act 6, there wasn't much to do. With the addition of the Cavalier Difficulty on the Horizon, and Herald Difficulty for the side quest next month, it's time for Variant to Evolve.

That's it. Leaving it cryptic. Bye!

    If u keep asking this question Kabam will never release Variant 5 and will jump to Variant 6. Maybe.

    IS THAT WHAT U WANT?

    No , no they won't.

    It’s like every 2-3 weeks we have a topic that requires everyone to open new threads about instead of just commenting on the same 146 opened threads.

    Announcement will come when it comes. Whether it comes today or Wednesday when it launches, it’ll
    Be here.

    Announcements usually come the day of it day before. When will people learn?

    I mean, this just means people are excited is all. Isnt that how it should be? Instead of hopping on the forums to complain about something they were probably wrong about to begin with. They are just asking for an Announcement post is all. Not for it to start sooner, not for compensation. Chill out.

    but there’s already so many of these posts. Just use the search function and get your answer

    Well it’s not that people don’t want others to be excited, it’s the fact that there are too many repetitive and redundant threads.

    I for one do not want my page clogged up with
    5 v5 threads asking the same question
    4 threads asking about the act 6 nerf
    7 threads asking about magneto buff
    Just use the search tool, it’ll save people a lot of hassle. Heck some people can’t even scroll down, some questions are asked when the answer is just at the bottom of the screen or on page two

    Probably later today as today is 2 days before the release of Variant 5

    Still a good chance for today, they normally announce stuff between 30 and 90 minutes from now

    or you could do it yourself? Search variant 5, click on a couple of the threads, and they give you a release date. Announcement is usually a day before the quest drops

    Wait for it to drop first ... that should be the obvious thing to do here.
    Once it drops I'll screenshot it and show you
