**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.
More information here.
**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

legends results announcement, estimated times

I've seen a bunch of user comments about when results are released but no official Kabam statement on this. The legends attempts end 14 days into the monthly event I believe, but when are the results posted/mailed out to us.

Also for other guys doing this month's run who are multi-time legends did you find this month's paths any longer? anyone willing to post previous event times and compare them to your time this month so new guys attempting it have a ballpark to shoot for?

and based on your previous titles and this months run, can any of the legends give their estimate what this month range would be?

    and another question to Mods and official Kabam confirmation on legends related issues - why will you not post times of the legends each month or provide info based on device or at least OS used. Wasn't "transparency" apart of the new and improved Kabam that we're all supposed to know and love better? :)

    to cut to the chase has there been a single Android legends in say the past 300 winners? or can you give a percentage of iOS vs Android so we know what we're working with? I finished this month 1 hour faster than an event 3 months ago that was considered a shorter event just going from a Samsung to Apply product, it seems mathematically impossible to compete on an Android, would it not be "transparent" to just tell your customers this is the case? (if it is true) so they don't waste all their resources, which obviously benefit you financially but not as far as community content/transparency.

    come on mods, is this gonna be yet another legends related threads you ignore and keep cryptic to avoid very legitimate questions? at least acknowledge hey we are not authorized to reveal this type of info or something.

    if you search through the history of previous legends related threads this is how they typically start and stop...

    I guarantee you not a single legend speed run was done on Android. I have a fast Android device and I can't do it, borrowed a buddies iPhone 7 and got 10th place. Same me same mastery same team. Load times are killer. Fastest Android out you got roughly 10 secs in and out of every fight iPhone you got 2 tops. 100 fights on both maps (estimated) just loading in and out of fight iPhone 400 secs Vs Androids 2000 secs. That is 26 extra mins minimum disadvantage to Android. And no where to make that time up as hero is 1 hit and done.

    Times in each map are irrelevant for planning some maps had as high as 5 hr to sneak in some as low as 4 hr 10min.

    yea it would still help the community to know some of these things if they would just release it. If it is mathematically impossible to make it on an Android why not just tell your loyal customers, or make an Android division, or make it FIGHT time based where it adds up the fight time excluding the load times.

    I guess they don't work every weekend but there have been plenty of Mod responses on weekends before and legends threads like this one ignored for days or longer while they are actively replying to other posts. There seems a purposeful quietness around legends in general since it benefits them financially.

    what other competition doesn't list result times on races? This is a true race in every aspect just like a marathon, but with hidden race times. And no divisions so 80 year old brackets (Androids) are racing against the Pro olympic type division. The design is obviously broken but in a financially advantageous way for Kabam so I'm hinting that I think the quietness around anything legends related is not coincidence.

    I did same, 2 months ago on android on a shorter map with posted times found on Reddit and youtube (yes that's what it takes to find times from helpful legends runners posting theirs) and this month on Apple and cut almost an hour off the run time.

    this is about what i guessed, it's a lot more than 26 minutes i'm guessing though since it's load time before and after every fight (well more than 100), and the load time entering the node before you start it, so it's actually 3 load times per fight.

    did you by chance do this month yet vs sinister spidey one that we have times on from Reddit posters showing rank 80 was about 4:28 and a couple guys in low 4:30s making legends?

    just seems odd the ends we have to go to for getting simple info they refuse to post. There are forums created around Kabam forums to bypass their secretive stance and "transparency."

    Just for my own knowledge is sharing legends times condoned by Kabam since they are so secretive about this so I don't waste my time here and move the post to Youtube and Reddit? Or will you allow the community to help either other by sharing data points that you are not willing to share?

    Tge team will not share anything more than they already do.
    The reason why they don't share cut-offs is the same as the reason they don't share arena cut-offs. Is simple.

    Care to enlighten us about this "same reason" they cannot share any cutoffs so the users have to go out of their way to create Reddit channels and Google spreadsheets to share it themselves? We are all aware of the fact that they do not share it, we are questioning the justification and how much time it would save the users from sharing it among ourselves outside of Kabam jurisdiction.

    People don't like to share cut-offs for personal reasons. Also they want to avoid others players from stealing their places in the future. Thats simple as it is

    "The team will not share anything more" = the team referring to Kabam team. Are you talking about players or "The Team"? All these posts have been about Kabam sharing not, PLAYERS sharing. We have been sharing from the beginning. There are live streams from the first to last second using IF, DW builds, SL builds, crit teams vs attack teams. Times posted compared to ranks placed. They are littered throughout Youtube and Reddit. The #1 ranked only back to back winner posts exactly how he does it from the masteries to the boosts to the champs used. Multiple streams of runs using all different types of comps. PLAYERS are more than happy to share this, even the number 1 ranked legends runner.

    Players can share whatever they want to on the forums. Are you perhaps asking kabam to create a thread just for the people to post the results?
    Because there is already one, which is the official quest announcement thread
