Summoners, the Necrosword Crystals (the crystals in the Knull Cavalier Preview Bundle) currently have a higher than intended drop rate of 6-Star Champions.

We will be leaving the crystals as is for the time being, but will be correcting the drop rates before Knull receives his official release on October 28th. To ensure that this does not affect anybody that purchased this preview bundle, we will be auto-opening these crystals before that date, but this means you will not see what you received. To avoid any confusion, please open your crystals yourself ASAP.

    Kabam was doing so great in this month but suddenly someone there decided to mess that up. These are supposed to be celebration arenas. Are they really? Please rethink.

    But to be truly objective, the 6* shards arena has the most value per fight with the lowest roster requirement, at least in my opinion.

    For most players, ten hours of fights and getting half of a 6* basic using just max ranked 2* champs is much more value than the same amount of time getting a featured 5* champion using 6* and ranked up 5* champs.

    It's just that the highest value lies on top of a mountain of boring but easy fights that most people aren't used to committing to.

    Having said that, I'm most probably dropping every other arena and focusing on getting those 5k 6* shards.

    Value wise it’s great. But it’s a bit of a bummer for those who also wanted to grind for the lone featured champion this month. I was going to put in what was already a long grind for Spider-Ham, but since this arena spans the course of both featured runs i won’t be able to. That’s my biggest gripe with it. Let alone adding another 1-2* arena for the 5* shards, which is a nice chunk, and an additional chance at a featured pull I want. It just feels mismanaged.

    This is sad to do after the previous ones took like 20 rounds total

    I worked 10 hours, played catch with the kid, helped him with his homework. I did that while taking a **** and while on my elliptical for an hour. This isn't difficult at all. If you don't want to do it fine. Just stop crying that you won't get the shards.

    That is a solid 3-4 hours of grinding at maximum efficiency.
    Uhm, the fights are over in 20 hits. It is not that time consuming. I normally run 22-28m in the feature arena and get 300 6* shards. This is such a better value it's not even close.

    Agree. In a vacuum, it has great value. The timing of it all is what makes it seem really bad.

    I have 92 maxed two stars and it’s still a slog

    90 here. I remember when I ran the 4* basic for Black Widow (her first run—like 2016) and had to use 3*’s and wake up an hour early to get a round in because each round netted me like 115K.

    This is like that.

    I’ll never forget that time my dad gave me a car for Christmas.

    Well, it was more like a set of wheels, frame, body, engine, transmission, exhaust, seats and wiring and it took me a week to build it ...

    But it was the best Christmas ever!

    Lucky you don't have my father. You'd have gotten a Schwinn, and a list for the store.
  • Look, if this is intentionally hard because they’re 6*’s, I get it. But they need to cut it down, because I’m not doing 800 fights this week for arena, just got half a 6*. And I’m no way would I have remaining time for the 5* arena. It’s the 6th anniversary? They should put a x6 multiplier on top of the x3 for your streak.

    Seems like a lot of people don't bother ranking 2*s. I hit 1M pts in 60 rds without suicides.

    I rank up two stars for level up events when I don’t have higher cats. I’m trying to get all of my two stars to max.

    Same. Only have 1 2* not maxed and I got them today from the collector crystals

    We all now are Brian Grant. Tbh, I'll pass it bc I can only see myself do 16 to 20 rounds at maximum per day so I will end up at around 1.6 mil in the end.

    Can't spare the iso. :/
    It's a catch-22. People can't spare it because they only Rank higher Champs. If you shift and do smaller Champs in the interim, it allocates Resources at a better pace. Mine is expiring.

    Hi folks! Just to clarify, you are receiving the correct points multiplier in the Anniversary Arenas :) The milestones may seem far off, but keep at it and you'll be raking in those Shards before you know it! Cheerio!

    Seriously? Thats likely around 1000 fights for the 6 star? That seems a little excessive to me
    No, it’s approximately 600 fights, or 200ish rounds of 3. Not bad at all for 5000 shards. Got plenty of 2*s maxed. I’m game.

    If the point multiplayer is like this, let us use 3&4 star Champs too...or increase the Base point to 3.5k (from 1.5k)

    I personally think arena is the worst part of the game. And Kabam wants us the grind it like crazy to get half a six star and a full five star? Sayonara.

    Right there with you fam. Arena feels like....punishment.
