    There are a lot of people that won’t get anything of value from the gifting event as well, it’s how rng works. Some events are rng based, some are just really good events, some are ok rewards with a mind-numbing, never ending slog of paths.
    This isn’t the first time Special crystal shards are given through an event, it won’t be the last. This was however the first time we got cav crystals as an option, making this the first time the special crystal shard type of event has been worth it to me.

    I've done 5 2019 pulls until now. Only 5 star, and the worst of them (Diablo). Awful event. I would rather 3 or 4 five star crystals after cleaning all the modes.

    You know the situations serious when GW speaks up against it.

    BTW, I agree, 7 crystals so far and all 3*s

    Sorry but if you add in the shard arenas, this is pretty much a normal side quest. And the actual side quest is shorter to compensate. Rank up stuff is a bit lower, but in context with everything else it’s fine

    So the cavs are just an added bonus. I see no reason to complain about an added bonus, even if it is RNG

    And I’m not a fan of RNG rewards at all.

    Can you please explain to me how the cavs are just an added bonus?
    Normally we would get plenty of 5*/6* shards, a lot of T5B and 5 2% T5CC Crystals.
    Instead we get 18 cavalier crystals which will be 0 6* for the vast majority, and if you are lucky enough you will get 3 5* champs. There are a lot of people that got a lot of 5*/6* but there are even more people that got only 3* and 4* champs

    Edit: if this was a 2nd side EQ I wouldn't mind at all, but removing guaranteed rewards from the 'main' side EQ and replacing them with RNG based rewards is a d**k move
    I mean, the shards are in the arenas that are coming. The T5CC I’ll give you, that’s a let down. T5B isn’t that big of an issue, I’m in a map 5/6 alliance and I’ve got 2 in overflow, I’m actually glad there isn’t much

    We’re not losing that much. 9k T5B and 6% T5CC roughly. That’s it. So yes, added bonus.

    Actually you will get something of value. You can gift only revives/energy refills instead of the crystals, and you will get GUARANTEED rewords from the milestone/rank solo/alliance event
    My bad, many people will get nothing of value from the greater gifting crystals.

    I kinda regret opening the cav Crystal. Should have opened the normal Crystal for exclusive 2*. I popped two Crystals and got 2* Airwalker and iAbom.

    The arenas are an extra. They shouldn't remove rewards from the side event and add them into arenas.
    The arenas are part of the side quest. Notice it’s a shorter side quest this month? It’s great this month since we already have so much content to spend energy on, less on the side quest is excellent

    I would have somewhat agreed was it not for all the other content that is coming out this month. You do get some garanteed rewards in this quest aswell in the form of catalysts and a ton of gold.

    But Act 7 and Variant 6 is permanent content, and the rewards that we get in the side EQ shouldn't be affected by them. Last month we got 5500 6 shards. This month we get 500 6* shards. From the cavalier crystals I got 14 3* and 4 4*. So I basically lost 5K 6* shards. We also get 6% T5CC less than last month.

    The type of rewards for this month is beyond terrible
    Did you forget about the fully formed 6* that you can get with the second side quest (boss rush?) That is almost twice the amount of 6 star as last month. Granted it is harder to get, but doable for anyone who would not have use for lower rewards.

    No. Side EQ is only the side EQ
    They should had increase the energy required, and the rewards.
    Whenever we had the 5* shards arena in the past, were the side quest rewards less? No, so it's an invalid argument

    Believe what you want, that’s not how it is. The arenas are clearly intended to be part of the side EQ, or at least to compensate. You want to get mad over that, go for it

    Its laughable that what, 2 days in? People are complaining of a month wasted in an event that had guaranteed rewards. Little point to make, all of you know how odds and cavalier crystals work. You also know how math works, and how to work out that doing all the difficulties will afford you 18 GUARANTEED cavalier crystals from whichever year you like. You chose to invest a relatively small amount of resources to obtain 18 GUARANTEED cavalier crystals, and cry that RNG in an RNG based game shafted you.

    I just 100% boss rush and duped my 6* phoenix. Why cry when it's how RNG works? Grow up.

    We never used to get monthly side events, now it seems we do every month yet people still want to complain when the difficulty or rewards change from Mutant Treasure Island. Go open a windows for God sake, see the outside world and realise your choice to waste your time in an online casino with no payout is your choice to make, and your inability to accept RNG is a flaw with you, not a game that makes no attempt to hide the RNG element.

    I always find it impressive a forum user named Grounded Wisdom seems to have none of the stuff.

    If you want 18 cavalier crystals (from which you will get 3*, 4* or in the best case scenario a 5*) instead of 5K 6* shards, 15K 5* shards, T5B, T5CC and T2A then I have nothing else to add.
    And why you used the word 'GUARANTEED' with the cavalier crystals? It makes no sense, cause these crystals are a total gamble

    And I have never complained about the difficulty of something and I will never will. My problem is that we get less rewards than usual
    The rewards literally change monthly, that happens in pretty much every side quest. As does the way they're obtained. Your fault for comparing them.

    Considering ill have the whole side event finished tomorrow and I dont have to touch it for the rest of the month, I'm content with the rewards.

    The effort for this side event is minimal, the rewards are great if you get lucky and hardly consequential if you don't.

    If you want other supplies, do the boss rush. Previously we didn't consistently have side events, especially on boss rush months. So yes, I will happily consider boss rush an added Side Quest.

    Oh, also in reference to your best case scenario of a 5*,
