**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!

    Make a one arena only for units and battle chips

    With this big of a blunder and all this negative feedback, I would not be surprised if they roll this thing back for the second run of this Shang chi arena

    At a glance, the milestones are way too high, A standard cavalier player probably has around 40 6 stars

    Yes, the milestones are too high. No, the standard cav player does not have around 40 6 stars. I'm about to be Thronebreaker and I have 11. I'd say the average cav, and not thronebreaker player has between 5 and 10
    Don’t forget not everyone is Cavalier.

    It will be more time consuming and difficult to farm units now...
    Also for cavalier and above grandmaster crystal are not good incentives or value...
    I feel the new arena lacks balance between whats good for player base versus for the company itself..

    Ps. If my comment is riddled with mistakes ,this white box and tiny letters is horrible to see.

    Not a fan of the change. This panders only to the high end players and robs those who have not gotten to UC or Cav of units and experience. Just like not allowing us to grind to better crystals because we haven’t progressed as fast as others. It sucks.

    16.5M for one is too much and I am a milestone grinder. I will not be able to grind for 33M. Just can’t. As an FTP, guess my hopes for July 4th are in the trash

    I'm Curious: Prior to these Changes, how many Milestones across all of the Arenas did you used to complete? If you don't remember that, do you remember how many Units approx you'd earn from Milestones per Arena run?

    Our goal is to keep the effort roughly the same, but of course, with reducing the number of Arenas, that's going to be difficult. With the change of the rarities allowed in each Arena, the points are definitely going to be different, but we want to keep the effort roughly the same.

    If that's not the case, we want to know! We won't know that on the first day or possibly even the first run, but please keep the feedback coming.
    I always hit all milestones of 3* featured, 4* basic and 4* featured milestones, and sometimes a few milestones in 5*featured. if i spend a whole day with arena i could do it for the the 3* and 4*basic and 1 round of 4*featured on day 2 to finish the milestones. i don’t like having to wait for 5-star or 6-star champs refresh times that’s why i always skipped 5*featured, but with 4*featured it only took me 4 rounds so i did it anyway.

    mostly it was guaranteed 500 units minimum with the battlechips but if i was lucky with battlechips and i did more 5*featured milestones, i could get up to 800 units actually. i don’t really want to do the new arenas because of refresh time of 5-star and 6-star champs. i could do 3*featured, 4*basic and 4*featured in 1 day (usually the weekend arena) so it doesn’t affect my daily life much. with this new change, i have to play arenas over a few days which most people with jobs/schools won’t really find the time to do. i didn’t even try the new arenas, so pardon me if the refresh time for 5-star and 6-stars have changed too because i wouldn’t know

    also, i could do all 4 different arenas at the same time because i could use 3 stars for 3*featured, 4 stars for 4*basic, 5 stars for 4*featured and 6 stars for 5*featured. now i have to play the arenas one by one

    6M for a 3 star and 9M for a 4-star featured champion is way too much, people like me who became uncollected 4-5 months back can't grind that much for we don't have many 5 star champions, it's hard for us and getting a 3 star at this high milestone being uncollected is really not good, I can understand for 4 star though, but 3 star is not really that valuable for uncollected, we try to get 3 star featured champs so we can try them, the least you can do is please lower the cooldown timer of 5 star champions to 1:30 hours or really lower the milestone for 3 star champion to like 3M or make a separate arena only for featured 3 star, please consider this Kabam, I love how you are putting your efforts in this game everytime but this really sucks, Hoping you will take the right decision as soon as possible ❤️❤️🙌🙌

    These are now meant for people who either have a huge roster, money to refresh champs often and people who don't have full time jobs that can just grind and grind. I have been playing since about 2 months after the game came out and I stopped arenas years ago since there is just no time to even try and get the featured champs. When I read about the new arenas I thought maybe I could get back into it once in awhile but this just tells me I will never do arenas again. I have also spent a very large amount of money on this game (not like the whales though) and I feel really bad for the FTP players who rely on arenas to advance in the game. Give people more arena options, not less.

    So I tried the new arena today and got Falcon 3* and 4* as milestones. My 3* was already at 99 sig so I could not tell how much sig I could have gotten.

    However, the 4* sig level went up just 1 measly point. Yes that is right, 1 point. 2.25 million points for a 1 sig 4* increase. That is so lame, very disappointing really. Getting 4* shards takes much less effort and gives out 20 sig points for dupes. I have absolutely no more interest in this lame change of the arena.

    And 6.25 million points for a featured 3* when it was 640k. What are you thinking?

    Kabam, you messed this up big time and you know it.
    You are pandering to the top 100 players and not listening to the mid and low tier players. Your fanbase will start to dwindle because of this, as so many players grind the arenas.

    Dude, the basic arena always gave a basic hero which only adds one sig level. That was in the announcement and that's the way it's always worked.

    I don't see any problem about streaks/deathmatches so far, only problem is milestones. QoL improvements should help us and reduce the time we spent on arenas, shouln't double it.
