Earlier today, there was an issue where Summoners that logged on shortly after the Login Calendar switched over for the day didn't receive the Cosmic Ghost Rider login crystal. We've fixed the issue for players receiving the crystal now but will have to collect data and send out the crystal to all players that didn't receive it next week. We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to making it right for you all.

    I think i should have 2 points, but showing only one. Is this correct?

    You haven't completed any objectives yet. Objectives start week 4
    1 point per week before objectives start

    all leading up to a fight that has likely haunted your dreams before.

    6.1.6 prenerf Crossbones, the Collector, or Infinity War/Endgame Thanos? 'cause those three, actually, no joke, no irony, haunted my dreams before.

    Can anybody clarify: If I get all the points am I getting 6 six star class nexus' and 8 t5cc or just a class nexus and 2 for peak milestone. Plus the t6b t3a

    It's peak milestones. Wherever you end the event at is the milestone you get rewards for.

    How does rewards work?

    In my Mind, I thought killing Rogue would give me 5000 Shards. I did not receive them. It did change the peak millstone in the solo event.

    You play AQ? It's the same as that. The highest rank you achieve is what you'll get at the end of the timer.

    Greetings Summoners!

    The wait is finally over, and at long last, the Summer of Pain has Begun!

    We are presenting a special challenge for those who have become Cavalier (by completing Act 6 Chapter 1) or higher. Starting June 16, we will be releasing challenging Side-Quests weekly that consist of just ONE fight. But these fights will be against notoriously dangerous, challenging, and frustrating encounters from throughout The Contest!

    Each week, for 9 weeks, a new fight will be featured and the previous week’s fight will be removed. So don’t miss a week of punishment! To further increase the difficulty, starting from the 4th week the fights will also have difficult Solo Objectives for you to try and overcome. The final challenge will go live on August 18 and feature horrific highlights from the previous weeks, all leading up to a fight that has likely haunted your dreams before. (Since we’re feeling charitable, that challenge will remain open for TWO whole weeks).

    But what is to be gained from all this pain? 1x Gold. What? You want more? Fine. As you win fights and complete the Solo Objectives you’ll collect points that upgrade the rewards you can collect at the end of the event, all the way up to rewards such as a 6-Star Class Nexus Crystal and Tier 5 Class Catalyst Selectors! This is done with Peak Milestones. That means you won't receive any rewards along the way, but at the end of the Summer of Pain, you'll receive rewards based on how many points you earned from each of the Fights and Objectives along the way!

    So don’t delay, get ready for fun in the sun as you feel the SUMMER OF PAIN!

    EDIT: With the first Quest in the Summer of Pain launching this week, we want to add some clarity regarding who the Quests and Objectives will be available to.

    Each week for 9 weeks this Summer, we will be releasing a new addition to the Summer of Pain. These Quests will be available to all Summoners that have earned the title of Cavalier (by completing Act 6 Chapter 1).

    Starting with Week 4, we will be introducing Special Objectives that add an extra level of challenge to each of the Quests. These objectives will only be available to Summoners that have earned the title of Thronebreaker (by completing Act 6 Chapter 4, and possessing a Rank 3 6-Star Champion).

    This means that if a Cavalier Summoner completes each of the Quests and earns the maximum number of points available to them, they will be able to obtain Milestone #6.

    We apologize for missing this information in our earlier communications.

    Guys please remove or reduce that blocking penetration, because wow! Its too much
    Dude this event was advertised as supposed to be as hard as it gets. This is only the tip of the iceberg. Don't ask for nerfs just because you can't read where it says who this content is for.

    I refuse to see this turn into another show up difficulty.
    No man, intercepting is another game. A parry mastery is what most people use, including myself. Well I guess all the content goes to those that have time.
    The node is called Invade. Has nothing to do with block proficiency. 300% increased attack while hitting into the block. Guess what, the attack can do that to the defender as well. Git gud.
    That is just a ridiculous comparison. I obviously read the node. How can u compare a 119k PI to a 11k PI?
    PI is a fairly useless number, all things considered. I ignore it completely going into fights.

    Way back in the day when a lot of us endgamers started playing, it took a long time to even unlock parry and dexterity. It wasn’t even immediately apparent that they were things you needed. Learning to spot openings was a day one thing. It baffles me that a Cavalier player can say with a straight face that intercepting is too hard.

    I... I just gave a “kids these days have it too easy” speech. Am I old now? I hate this.
    Do consider that we all start somewhere. You did not wake up and mastered intercepting. It probably took you years. So do not judge. I am one year and 7 months playing this game and intercepting is still hard for me. And yes you are right by saying back in the day. Now is not back in the day....
    So take the opportunity to practice. Or don't if you don't want to. But that doesn't mean every event needs to cater to you. I'm sure you still have plenty in Act 7 and variants to explore

    Apparently this is not suitable for Cavalier players. If this first fight is one of the easy ones, I don't wanna know what comes next.
    So Thronebreakers got TWO events, this one and the Gauntlet. Anything for the rest of us who don't want to turn this in to a "summer of pay"?

    Sure. It's called doing all the other content that's available for progressing players. Variants. Story. EQ. Side Quest. Abyss.
    First of all, I didn't say it's bad that you TB have new things to play with, I said We, don't. So don't promote it like we do.
    Second, nobody asked you. You also do EQ and sidequests and variants when they come to play. It's not that you don't have something to do in your spare time.
    And the deep TB guys went through a crazy drought before getting gauntlet and summer of pain. I'm still working on 7.2 and some other things in the game when I'm not doing AQ and AW. I would be surprised to find a progressing player with nothing to do in the game content-wise.

    So you are 100% act 6, all Variants and Abyss? In the case that you are not, that's what he means. You do, in fact, have things to work on. Maybe what you meant is more that there's nothing you want to work on?
    Why do I have to "work on" things I don't like, like Abyss? I don't like fights that last that long, I won't do it. The game is not only about progression, I want a challenge but not nerve breaking stuff. If TB want something even more difficult, I d suggest to start playing EQs with 3* champs. There, problem solved.
    Go play Arena. The fights will be really challenging for you after 5 streak.
    Yeah, because the difficulty increases after 5 streaks, that 's why I m doing 200. Don't comment if you don't play the game, stop embarrassing yourself.

    I did it with my 6* R1 Spider-Gwen. Brought her down to 13% before my scrub brain decided that it needed to see the green parry message flash up on screen and died to her block break. Finished her off with an L1 revive. Although, if someone soloed her with both Spider-gwen and Shulk, can you tell me which option would be easier? I'm guessing Shulk would be significantly easier because of her taunt mechanic. One major problem I faced was baiting out Rogue's special with Spider-Gwen so I could heavy counter her special. It took me nearly 13-15 tries to get the fight down to a science with stand up intercepts and heavy countering her specials.

    I did it with SG too. SG's slow is longer, I tried to get 5 spider sense charges as soon as possible. Rogue is very agressive so she throws her specials likely right when she fill a bar. I didn't have any problem fighting her with Gwen. Rogue was always cornered in the right. I don't have She hulk, but she has passive furies so I guess she will be a quicker option.

    This first fight was easy indeed, I’m just curious about the objective challenges, hoping they are at least possible with enough skill and not meant as a revive fest.

    My fear with the objectives is it will be to use specific champions, which means having to rank them up. I’m okay with that for permanent content like Carina’s Challenges, but it would suck to be a player who could otherwise accomplish a timed challenge who just didn’t have the rankup resources on hand.

    Hopefully, we’ll just see things like class/star restrictions or a specific in-fight action. Something that won’t be as taxing to adjust to within a week.
  • ZeepZorpZeepZorp Posts: 105 ★★
    Tried it with tons of champs and took a load of time, but I finally managed the one-shot with a 4* r4 She-Hulk. She's by far the best option assuming you can continuously chain heavies, combo her and bait specials in the right corner. There was a couple times she held block when under a bar of power so I just chucked a sp3, rushed her and heavied to apply slow again. 10/10 would not do again unless I have a r5 5* She-Hulk.

    Is this event a joke ???
    So Kabam put the Cavaliers at the same level of difficulty as the Thronebreakers even if they do not have a 6r3. And for this event a 6r3 helps a lot.
    That is not fair: it is the Thronebreakers that ask for more harder challenges. Most of the Cavaliers do not even have completed the act 6.
    Always against the Cavaliers...

    Thronebrakers are no gods, cavaliers are no gods, Nor demigods Nor even none of the ranks to be considered as some sort of special target intended exclusive content..

    If you think of unfair, think twice about..
    Or even just take a time to consider the wider range of players that are below cavalier rank that do not have access to Those challenges.

    Rank is just a status that you acquire because you were able to finish certain tasks, not matter the way you did it (if rune spending, pure hability or any other way). No idea how many times I have heard/read "I spent xxx runes my friend, but I finally got xxx title (let's say cavaliers just to complete the sentence)

    I have many friends that are not cavaliers Nor Thronebrakers just because it takes too much time for them, not because of the lack of something, in fact, I'm pretty sure they could finish the task..

    Soo NOP, no idea why they put cavaliers to throne breakers level, Nor why it is rank title relate exclusive content when the fact of getting a title is not (just to avoid mistakes, getting most of the rank titles is not straight progressive rank related but story mode progress related)

    I completed week 1 with venom 5r5, 2 revives.
    I’m TB but only 1 r3 (Angela) completely out of scope for this event. But venom did surprisingly well.

    Agreed, asking us to rank up an unused/unpopular champ in particular is a bit much but we will see.

    As long as your five star roster is well developed you should be fine, you can always use boost if needed.

    Its actually hilarious how despite this event being amazing for cavs someone finds a way to complain.

    If it follows the trend of rogue then there should be absolutely no requirement for r3 champs.
    Defeating 5 bosses gives you a 25% selector.
    In addition to the 75% selectors already available in story content (act 6, 7.1 & 2 exploration)
    You can literally choose any t5cc you want no rng required.
    I'm sure people will still find a way to complain about thronebreaker requirements though
    You’re right that they’re flooding the market a bit in terms of t5cc, but listing act 6 exploration in that is pretty ludicrous

    Exploring one of the chapters is not a big deal, that gets you 25% I believe. Act 6 shouldn’t be too challenging for the most part for any Cav pushing to be TB. It’ll be hard yeah, but worth it. There’s still some awesome rewards there

    I wasn't even listing act 6 exploration.
    You just need act 6 completion for 25% selector.
    Its 7.1 & 2 you need to explore for selectors which Is very easily achievable.

    Forming a t5cc of your choice with absolutely no rng elements is now possible for those willing to work for it
  • MalchaeisMalchaeis Posts: 71
    It very doable for cavaliers. No one says you have to solo it. I hate using revives or even spending units on them but for 5000 6* shards spend some time in arena to get units. There is alot of videos and advice on which champs to use. It's free to enter. No energy required. No limit on amount of times you can try. Heck, use it to practice intercept timing instead of always relying on parry. I used a 5* corvus hitting into her block to beat her. Don't give up and have faith in yourself. Just keep practicing and trying. You got this.

    Whoops, didn’t read that right. Good call, and that doesn’t even include the fact that f2p players can use arena units for selectors after 7.1 and 7.2. 3500 units for 15 and 20?
