    I was saving money literally for a year to spend today. It would be my first time spending money in MCoC.

    Great deception, but at least got to save it.
    Won't be spending a dollar or an Unit today.

    I mean, I get it. I was wrong too. I thought they would have included some kind of T5CC component for Cav and more for TB. I can admit that. That was my guess. It doesn't mean I'm entitled to what I thought they would do.

    July 4 2020 was better than CW 2019, which was better than July 4 2019, which was better than Cyber Monday 2018...

    So don’t be confused why people are pissed that 1) Kabam created a stupid progression path to TB and then 2) toned down the deals rather than improved them from July, which is clearly what they had been doing from offer to offer, year to year.

    This is a giant middle finger to the players. You can suck up all you want. Doesn’t change a thing.
    Actually, you're comparing without complete information. The Deals ARE better. The ceiling has changed. Thronebreaker didn't exist before. Cavalier did. So you have to compare based on the top-most.
    As for the progression path, something had to be the deciding factor. Not something that was immediately accessible by everyone. In that respect, it's a successful one. It's like saying make another level, but give it to everyone. What's the point?

    I spat my tea out when I saw the difference between Throne breaker and cav. Needless to say Kabam, I saved a ton of money and can now quite happily trawl the world wide web looking for genuine black friday/cyber Monday deals. I can't thank you enough. My wife also sends her regards as she might get that new tumble dryer after all.👌.

    I hope to see an additional offer where I can get a T5CC selector. This offer can help a lot of Cavaliers become Thronebrakers.

    They are not better. Don’t be delusional. I didn’t expect to get close to what a thronebreaker got in their offers, what I did expect was atleast 10-20% of a T5cc from my 5k units.
    Never mind though, act 6 compensation and my saved units will be more than enough for a pass of 7.1 and 100% variant 6 over the holidays I think. Unless of course they lock 7.1 behind thronebreaker as well.
    Where did we hear about act6 comp? Did they give an update?

    You apparently ignored the part that I mentioned about the ceiling.
    As for what you expect, I can't speak for that. Expectations usually lead to disappointment.

    So glad I didn’t get caught up in the frenzy. I was going to contemplate buying based on the deals, and thankfully don’t have to now. Actually being sincere. I saved money (silver lining in the cloud) and more money available now for gifts in general. Whether it be for the gifting event or in the real world.

    The value of units has even gone WAYY down today. Brian Grant said it best. In his exact words...


    I’ve never seen him that sad. I guess this is his vocation, as it were, and hits him harder. It’s just my goofy hobby. But that was a bit heart-rending. And let’s be clear, here, there are a BUNCH of kabam employees that are pissed on his behalf right now. I imagine the design team is on the outs with marketing.
    You can't possibly know how many Kabam folks are mad at other Kabam folks, or even if they are mad at all.
    I bet they aren't even mad or pissed at each other on anyone's behalf.
    At most, they might disagree with the "deals", but that is it.

    Everyone that isn't a whale and that actually plays the game is really disappointed in the unit "deals", unless you are a whale that doesn't really care, and just buys everything no matter what.

    I knew that Kabam was going to screw Cavalier players this Cyber Weekend. Even more so, I figured that the item they'd screw Cavalier level on is the T5CC selectors. Why else would they have rushed this progression level with the standard of having a rank 3 6-star?

    I am bummed out, after playing for months to push for TB, save up units and cash for what seems to be the last bit. I see allot of players with the same problem, did abyss and completion to get the title but avail. I feel sorry for those who have exploration of act 6, they will have it harder. @ Kabam give those who dont need the t5CC more T5CC
    .I'm done, this game wasn't feeling rewarding for a while now. This made the top tier players even higher.

    It feels like the honoust players keep getting punished and need to work harder for scraps in every part of the game.

    Not only are the cash offers for cavalier underwhelming, the unit offers are awful for F2P players. Disappointment would be an understatement. Why on earth would cavalier players want t4bc as part of the 1000 unit deal? I already have 10 in overflow.

    It's part of the first Offer only. Which you still use them to Rank Champs.

    The fact that you need to buy an offer that isn’t worth it to unlock the next deal is bs. Compare this with the 4th of July deals earlier this year, this is awful. And I’ve already mentioned that I have over 10 overflowing T4BC so I would have already ranked up champs if I wanted to.
