Credit where Credit's Due, Amazing Job on Act 7

edited December 2020 in General Discussion
Before people start coming in here like "It was too easy, we need challenging content.", get out. This isn't for you.

Act 7 is... it's perfection. It may not be challenging, I'd say it's around 6.1 level in fact, but it is extremely fun and surprisingly skill based to be honest.

I looked through every path and there wasn't a single fight where I thought, "That's BS.", "That's a horrible node combo.", or "Hmmm, I don't think I have a champ for that." It's the polar opposite of Act 6.

I was talking to @Rockypantherx and he brought out something that I loved but hadn't really thought of. This content doesn't straight up counter any of the top champs like Quake or Ghost, but they're also not as dominant where you feel you need them for exploration. I've looked at so many paths and thought, "Wow, this not super special champ that I've never really wanted to rank up would be amazing for this!" And that's how it should feel!

Like the title said, credit where credit's due. Excellent job.

    Agree, I made a poll on this and I'm hoping Kabam devs can see it cause so far people have only had positive things to say

    Yea seriously. in 7.1.1 there's a path that the defender takes less damage unless incinerated. If this was in act 6, then the path would be just that node and if you don't have a good incinerate champ, you're screwed. However, for this path in act 7, they gave you the node where you have a chance to apply incinerate with basic attacks and it was really enjoyable. Props to kabam for doing good on this even tho you screwed me over with the cav calendar and stuff.

    They have that same exact node combination in 6.3.5 and there's even a poison version of it in 6.3.6
    Do you mean that there's both the node that allows you to apply incinerates and the defender takes less damage unless incinerated or just the node where the defender takes less damage unless incinerated ?

    Adding variety in exploration with the 3 different bosses was an amazing idea, now it doesn’t feel like an absolute slog fighting the same boss over and over

    The path in 6.3.5 has Pleasure to Burn, Got a Light, Power Shield, and Redoubled Determination but Overall I agree with you in that act 7 is way better than act 6

    Well said, 7.1 is was made perfect. You still gotta plan paths, and use the right champs and at the same time play very well.

    We’re gonna have a blast with this one. Kudos Kabam!!!
    Now I feel like going for the monthly sigil and unit deal.

    And if YOU enjoyed 7.1 initial clear, buy the monthly sigil.

    Any good counters to 7.1.2 rhino?
    Emma Frost is an amazing option people are going to sleep on. I soloed him with her. She places a concussion on her SP2, so as long as you don’t use heavies or other specials (although she does place a taunt on her heavy in telepath form).

    She is also pretty tanky in diamond form, mitigating bubble shield a good chunk. Oh, and her SP2 absolutely throws down with power shield

    Just tried 7.1 and so far, im happy. It is not too hard where I felt like I'm struggling, but it was way easier than the Mullaney chapter 2 haha. I'm excited to try out more

    apocalypse shreds that guy, go to an SP2 to get the concussion on, then SP1 for the other two debuffs, then SP3 to make all debuffs permanent, than just smash with your specials ^_^

    Agree on all points!

    The only thing that my roster could whine about (if it could!) is that I don't have a playable version of DP or DXF and I run suicides. 😆

    Totally agree...A great job is done by Kabam .. the content is so much fun, exciting, skilled-based, and doesn't rely on specific champs... I Hope future all contents are also in the same line.

    Just completed it without needing to spend revives or potions. Pulled a 6* mister fantastic and a tech rank-up gem. Out of my 16 6*, not a single one is tech...

    Kabam is just mocking me at this point.
