**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!

    Easy to say DNA when you haven't spent 8 months now spinning 6* after 6* waiting for a decent champ.

    It took me longer than that to pull a 6* champ that I'd consider an r3 candidate, and that was Killmonger. The three that most people would consider rank 3 worthy I pulled relatively recently, after *years* of opening 6* crystals.
    Do you have a R3? You must be close if not. Just curious...

    Yep. I ranked up Ghost. Which I'm actually starting to play not like a blind person finally. But I pulled her relatively recently. In fact when the Thronebreaker title was announced I think I had just pulled her and she was sitting at 1/25. The other two rank 3 candidates would be Stealthy and Corvus, both of which I pulled earlier this year.

    Maybe Hulk Rag is an r3 candidate, but I myself wouldn't take him up personally. Not bad, just not one I would do.
    Hard to argue with that.

    I’m about a crystal away from mutant, and that will go to either Havok or Domino. A bit further from tech and cosmic, and Warlock and CMM are waiting in the queue for those. Further down the line is science, which I imagine would be Cage. Mystic and Skill are non existent.

    Dr. Zola
    That's a pretty good line up. My next would be either cosmic or science, barring some very weird luck. You'd think Corvus would be an automatic there, but I'm thinking of hanging on for CMM or CGR. Science, there's IW, there's Hulk Rag, and then it gets thin. I doubt I would take either of them up, although I have a soft spot for IW for various reasons. But not that much of a soft spot.
    I used to have Corvus on my 6* wish list. But I struggle to see him being as useful going forward. I love my 5*, but it always seems unwise to invest in the meta champs on the downside of the curve.

    Agree definitely but like many players have 30 x 5/65 for diverse utility. Hopefully they will still be useful for a long time yet.

    Book 2 says they probably will. The content seemed to be structured to benefit players with wide rosters that can bring strong counters to fights. 5/65 works. The 6* advantage is a bonus to damage which makes the fights faster (as I recall), but it isn't an advantage that makes impossible fights possible, just possible fights easier.

    To put it another way, from my experience the best 5/65 was better than a random above average 6* rank 2. Of course the best 6* rank 2 is going to be better than the best 5/65. But I think a very wide 5* roster is going to serve players better than a narrow 6* roster, at least in the medium term.

    I've come to the conclusion, people are nuts! Kabam must be thrilled. People are literally clamoring to spend a load of cash for cavalier....and then turn around and do it again for thronebreaker.

    Nuts I tell ya!

    @Kabam Miike Can we get some clarification on this?

    I'd rather not have to R3 Green Goblin/War Machine/Iron Patriot/P2099 just to get Thronebreaker...

    You'd be pretty foolish to do that regardless of the deals
    P2099 at least is worth the r3
    Disagree. P2099 is even more underwhelming than Hulkbuster.
    Have you actually played P2099 seriously? He’s better than Hulkbuster by a longshot.

    I think you're right there. I think scaling health is his downfall. The harder the content gets, the more the fights will tend to last longer (because there's fundamentally only two ways to make a fight harder, take longer for you to kill them, or take less time for them to kill you with super high attack). And making fights last longer is basically anti-Corvus scaling. At least, as an admitted not-expert in Corvus, that's how I'm currently seeing him. He's becoming Star Lord.

    Debatable. I don't necessarily agree but can see the argument for it
    It helps that Act 7 won’t require top tier champions to complete or explore since it’ll be so easy, which is why I feel fine ranking up P2099 over my Ghost.

    I'm considering taking Platpool to R5 over AA. Sometimes we just have to think for ourselves.

    That’s a fair analogy. Put another way—he’s essentially two champs: one packs a huge punch and is durable, the other doesn’t and is fragile. The more times the “other guy” has to dance around, the less he is a viable option.

    It would be akin to the Hulk having a mandatory Banner phase.

    But Ghost doesn’t have that issue...

    Hey everybody,

    So, we've never commented on this, because it's never been an intended reaction, and I cannot guarantee that it will always be this way, but if you change progression levels, you should receive the next tier of offers. While I can't guarantee it 100%, I am very confident in it.

    Cool, thanks commenting on this!

    The text in the mail was the same for last year's cyber weekend and yet the progression mid-week to update deals was possible then. The text likely just means that the deals that come out on the Friday will not be changed for different deals on the Monday as was the past with 2018 having 24 hour black Friday deals and different 24 hour cyber Monday deals.

    I took it to mean that they will not change what's being offered in the deal IE if you complain that there is not enough tier 2 Alpha or there should be more than one selector available, they're not going to change it, that's the offer.

    Because altered means the deals offered won't change. Like if Black Panthers briefcase offered 14 6* nexus god tier champs it won't change to 2* god tier nexus crystals.

    sorry I have to disagree. it gives them an out if you change progression but don't get the new deals

    Which since it's never been intended to be possible in the first place, you can't really get mad at.
