    It is not a question of no amount of communication, it’s the utter lack of communication. I am sorry, in my profession the easiest way to piss off a customer is to not communicate even if the answer isn’t what the customer wants to hear. The amount of time in between communication here is flat out disrespectful to the player base

    A "lack" of communication means little to none. That's not what's happened. They've communicated. They've had a beta. They have been communicating, just not at the frequency you'd like.

    The past month and a half have been quite the struggle, BUT with struggle has come compensation packages to help us see the light of the situation. And I think we have been rewarded very well with the compensation packages that we have gotten in the past 5 weeks or so. But the question still stands, does the amount of glory (which I believe might just be AQ compensation) make up for the amount of stress, frustration and anger that have come from the Parry and Controls issue.

    Personally, I think the glory is a perfect way to apologise and keep us at high hopes. But every one has had the Parry and Controls bug effect them differently, in my case, it hasn't effected me at all (nearly at all).

    Some people think that we should get a larger final compensation package when the entire bug has been fixed, and i'm pretty down for it. but I'm not sure if it's really a need, more of a generous thing to do.

    IF we did get this final compensation package, I would think we'd see this in each level of progression:

    Thronebreaker - x5000 6-Star Shards + x5 Level 3 Revives

    Cavalier - x2500 6-Star Shards + x5 Level 3 Revives OR 1x 5-Star Nexus + x5 Level 3 Revives

    Uncollected - x7500 5-Star Shards + x5 Level 2 Revives

    Everyone Else - x1 4-Star Nexus + x5 Level 2 Revives


    I need to make this clear, I don't think I need this, but some do.

    They already said we getting compensation once the patch is released

    Ah.. think you might be mistaken.

    They said once the fix is in place is when they'll start measuring the impact it's had on the game.

    My estimation is 2 weeks tops once the fix is live

    Just to note: Kabam Mods specifically said that they would be working on a final compensation package once the issue has been resolved. So something is coming for certain, but we have no details what or when. I like your suggestion, although for many who have been affected by this issue and forced to spend units to complete content, 5 revives would likely feel like a slap in the face (especially after they got AQ revives every week for 5+ weeks). I was not personally affected as much as some others, but it complicated my Summer of Pain progression. Personally, I would suggest the following (building off your tiered list):

    Thronebreaker - x5000 6-Star Shards OR 1 Mythic Crystal + x15 Level 3 Revives and 25 Level 5 Health Potions

    Cavalier - x2500 6-Star Shards OR 1x 5-Star Nexus + x15 Level 3 Revives and 20 Level 5 Health Potions

    Uncollected - x5000 5-Star Shards OR 1 Legendary Crystal + x15 Level 2 Revives and 20 Level 4 Potions

    Everyone Else - x2500 5-Star Shards OR 1 4-Star Nexus + x15 Level 2 Revives and 20 Level 3 Potions

    Add on some champion boosts for each package. Players get to choose what they feel impacts them the most. Maybe 5k 6 star shards is not appealing because they just opened a 6*. The mythic crystal represents a chance at another 6*, but could be only 5*. Interesting choices (in my mind) for each of the progression tiers. I increased the rewards overall from your suggestion because Kabam has mentioned that they want to increase the rate of progression for lower level players.

    Would probably be similar to the one last year... or was it the year before?
    Anyone under conqueror got a 4 star nexus and 5k 5 star shards.
    Over got a 5 star nexus and 5k 6 star shards. Maybe this time TBs will get a 6 star nexus and an awakening gem or something

    I dont think so either but people are gonna milk those rewards and disagree with anyone who says otherwise. But hey, benefits us all atleast.

    You mean you don't need it seeing you were not affected at all. The compensation that was sent out was for people who were affected running AQ. Plenty of people were affected and had to step down from higher tiers of maps and do difficult content despite having issues. You could always not claim the compensation if you don't need it, just saying.
    With regards to your compensation package, I think they can skip the shards and only give items. Compensation is for things you used when the bug was present. Items are what people use to clear content, not shards or cats. Glory, revives and potions are what I would be looking at.

    You do realize that for Regular Compensation they sent out we got 10 L2 revives and 10 potions which heal for 10k health (don’t know the level lol)

    That would be so much less

    I'm usually against most comp because it's rarely needed for super small bugs. This is not one of those cases. There truly people who can't play some content because of the bug like the monthly EQs or AQ. There are ones who are trying and spending resources they wouldn't normally.

    Kabam has said to back off the harder content for now. I do expect compensation for things like MEQs. Not act 7 or abyss rewards because that can be done anytime. But I would expect shards for sure. Maybe some rank up materials but doubtful and definitely revives and pots.

    We don't need things like 6* nexus crystals or t6b. But there is a need for it.
    Yeah the trouble is that people ask for compensation for the game going down for 5 mins and it just makes the whole compensation conversation on the forum like the boy who cried wolf.

    This is a genuine need for compensation, but people need to remember that Kabam decide compensation mostly on what you miss out on due to the issue. That’s what they mean by β€œmeasuring the impact”. They figure out what the bug has caused you to miss. There is a small addendum that sometimes there is extra stuff added on as, I suppose, a small apology, or a β€œfor your troubles” type thing. But I would be immensely surprised if that amounted to something like a 6* nexus which had been thrown around by some people.

    To your point regarding shards. I wonder how much and how in depth the data will be reviewed post bug fix.

    I say this as if people heeded kabam’s advice and did not do harder content while the bug is in play they actually did miss out on some shards. At least the difference between the level the normally do and the lower level of content
