Tier 1 alphas need 2 be made more available 2 top tier players

The current state of the game is ridiculous u have made ranking 5*s so hungry for t1as yet u make the alphas not so easy to collect unless u run map 3 u can't get t1a from map crystals this needs to change

    We run Map 5x5 and I have T1A's in overflow. We get them from all kinds of sources, specifically several Alliance events come to mind like Arena and Completion.

    Glory store
  • UnsaferBinkie7UnsaferBinkie7 Posts: 658 ★★
    Yes because we want to waste our glory on alphas.
  • Deadbyrd9Deadbyrd9 Posts: 3,460 ★★★★
    You can easily buy 5 a week from it. It’s a way to get them easily
  • UnsaferBinkie7UnsaferBinkie7 Posts: 658 ★★
    T4b and t2alpha frags are actually worth the glory.
  • Deadbyrd9Deadbyrd9 Posts: 3,460 ★★★★
    If you choose not to buy t1 alphas and complain about not having enough then that’s on you. I think basics are more important but if I need alphas I will but them
  • UnsaferBinkie7UnsaferBinkie7 Posts: 658 ★★
    Thing is i'm not struggling with alphas, its the low amount everyone is getting. We used to get them in milestones in aq, now you wanna buy them with your glory, overpriced if you ask me.
  • Deadbyrd9Deadbyrd9 Posts: 3,460 ★★★★
    I don’t see a difference from buying t4 basics with glory to rank champs and buying alphas to rank champs. The fact is they are readily available for players with the 5* alpha hoarders

    it doesn't make any sense to have the first building block to levelling less available than the t4cs or t4bs for those playing at a reasonably high level, I have 3 5*s ready to r3 except for the alphas and I have been running alpha arena and buying 1 or two a week. Rewards are balanced for 4* not the 5* we need to be concentrating on since r5s will be available soon as will 6*

    Sooo correct man. Used to laugh at T4A and be like, "Who the hell would do 800k for an alpha? They are so plentiful." Sadly, I just did my first alpha arena a week or two ago because of this reason. I go thru them so fast. It would be nice to CHANGE the arena to be like 1.1 mill to get THREE alphas, not 1. 1 alpha gets us a 4* from rank 2->3, which is sad. I am so screwed when I open the 7 5* I have been saving for a few months :(

    You are 100% right about everything else. To the rest of you, you can't spend glory on T1A because I already NEED to buy T4B and T2A shards from the glory store each week. I never thought I'd have way more T4CC than T4B/T1A

    I agree there was a time I would sell t1a by the dozen now that I shifted to ranking 5* I can't get any currently on 0 t1. Soon as I get 10 r2 and 3 my Electra then stuck again as I will do another 5 to r2 then 3. I have t4c in overflow and stuck for stupid t1a

    You can get more alphas than t4 basics if you allocate glory differently. If I used all my glory on t1 alphas then I would get 5 a week from glory, 1 from arena, and 2 from alliance events. Also I could add 1 for the average I get per month from event quest. That’s a total of 9 per week. I would be getting about 2 and a half t4 basics this way every week. I don’t get how alphas are less available because you choose to use your resources on other items. 9 alphas a week is a lot
  • Deadbyrd9Deadbyrd9 Posts: 3,460 ★★★★
    I dont see why someone would do this every week. But doing this once a month or more often than that will give you the alphas you need
  • Wil6541Wil6541 Posts: 273
    @Deadbyrd9 how is 9 a month gonna help when I need 10 a week. I use glory on a mix of alpha and t4b but every week need the t2a as well.
  • KingCrooksKingCrooks Posts: 176
    I have a full stash and 7 in overflow. Still ranking those 5's tho. They're out there

    Do you get a 5* a week? @Googleplexian
  • Deadbyrd9Deadbyrd9 Posts: 3,460 ★★★★
    @Wil6541 I said 9 a week not 9 a month. I found about the max you can get a week if you grind for them
  • Deadbyrd9Deadbyrd9 Posts: 3,460 ★★★★
    You can get about 36 a month if you want

    That's googleplexian an officer from CORE so yea I think he get's them. BTW unless you're from the top 300 alliances it not possible to buy 5 t1a from the glory store when there are better stuff to buy
  • 8eocu94k7kj3.jpg
    Maybe I'm wrong, but you seem to be overstating. 8 day reset on alphas plus the prices going up by about 4x over those 8 days.. 2 possible from alliance events in one week.... That's IF your alliance does arena events (many don't fully participate in them, even at high levels). The monthly quests def adds in but only monthly.

    Just buying 5 from the glory store within 8 days would cost 3750 glory lmao.

    But I've seen plenty of ppl use the same bad argument when talking about alphas plenty of times. Same for the "I can get a billion t4b in a week if I want" ppl.
  • Deadbyrd9Deadbyrd9 Posts: 3,460 ★★★★
    I’ve never bought 5 but I never thought the 5th would be 1300 haha
  • Deadbyrd9Deadbyrd9 Posts: 3,460 ★★★★
    So you can buy 4 a week. I had no idea who googleplexian is but the average person does not get that many 5*. Maybe one and a half per month. That’s plenty of alphas for the majority of players

    I’m in a top 300 alliance and I’ve never bought a t2 alpha with glory. I’ve taken 2 5* from rank 1 to rank 4 in the past 2 months and I still have plenty

    Not trying to pick on you... But I get very frustrated bc so many people here sound so very sure of themselves and don't seem to actually know the particulars. The details are important when someone is arguing against a premise posed by an OP. Many users will take someone's word as law when that poster sounds authoritative and seems like they know what they're talking about. But simply looking for the info proves them wrong many times. It's a rampant thing in this forum, to the detriment of the player base.
  • Deadbyrd9Deadbyrd9 Posts: 3,460 ★★★★
    I don’t care if I get proven wrong like most people on here. I welcome it. I also thought t1 alphas were on the 3 day cycle like gold crystals.

    To the people who said we get enough t1a u guys obviously aren't at my level in the game I have well over 20 5* and I plan on taking all to minimum r3 I already have 3 at r4 and the t1a need is insane
