Symbioid coming home?

Lots of people look back at the October 2018 symbioid event with fond memories, eagerly awaiting the return of our friendly summoned symbioids. Today an Alliancemate pointed out that if you go to your catalysts and unclick the “fragments” and “catalysts” buttons at the bottom, you can find the Klintar katalysts used to rank our symbioids. Does anyone know if this is an old easter egg, or does it mean our symbioids are finally coming home?

    It's just an easter egg. Too bad. I miss my Symbioid

    I remember that event. It was back when I was pretty bad at this game and my best was a 4* 4/40 Loki. I remember it seemed really fun and I was sad I wasn't good enough to be able to rank up my Symbioid to any point that I could actually use him. I'd love for that event to happen again or for the Symbioid to come back somehow, especially because I remember he could do some great bleed damage, which I currently desperately need for 6.3.1 Medusa.

    If I remember correctly, the Symbioid didn't work that way. I am pretty sure you could only use your boosted Symbioid in the content that was designed for it. (You wouldn't be able to use him in Act 6 anyway)

    Aw man, I wanted to use him in the v4 1* quest

    It's always been there if you mess about, guess they've kept it in the system - given how fond people were of the event, it'd make sense they'd do a revisit to it - but it'll want time to pass first I think.. maybe 2021 to celebrate getting rid of 2020 🤔

    Hmm, it was from end of Year 4 of the contest right? And we‘ve got the very first Events as Variants? So like the first 6 months. So might just take another 10 years until it‘s Symbios time for a Variant. ~.~

    They said they were looking at increasing the speed of them, variant form it'll take a while - but we've seen modoks Island twice now, we've seen a few events repeat or copy and pasted - so I wouldn't put it past them to have our little sym come back all grown up, or his turned and we need to raise a new one to take him out..

    Might have to wait for something marvel related, we do have venom 2 being released at some point - maybe more spin-offs so could be a chance to link then

    Really? I thought he could be used in anything, but I may be remembering incorrectly. You're probably right. And yeah I forgot he was a 1* so I couldn't take him into Act 6 anyway.

    In October 2019 we were given pictures that they are still alive. The message associated with the picture was:

    Greetings Summoner,

    Since you joined The Contest prior to October 31 2018, we have a special Profile Pic for you! It was sent directly from the large farm (in a secure location) where your Summoned Symbioid frolics and plays... and in no way is being trained for a horrifying invasion. In. No. Way.

    Wear this exclusive Profile Pic with pride and remember the good times you had back when you were training this mindless creature to pummel Champions




    And more recently they again have shown their faces on Battleworld (Marvel Realm of Champions). If you look closely on the Onslaught battle information screen:

    Not that it's any indicator of whether they will come back or not, but the devs could've removed the Klyntar Catalysts from the game files. They chose not to .. and maybe that was to make things easier for when they are reintroduced for a future event.
