**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!

So if cav difficulty is getting tweaked and more complicated, are the rewards going to reflect it?

At this point why not just make a thronebreaker difficulty and save some trouble?

    @Demonzfyre having less ranked champions is still better than not having ranked champions ^_^ And I don't believe that a player that regularly explore cav difficulty doesn't have at least a couple of ranked champion for each class, but it's harder to actually have a couple of ranked champion for each tag ^_^

    I looked at AuntM because I was thinking the same but the tags are a little more expansive than I thought. Inhumans is pretty restrictive but you have 2 other tags to go with it. Unless they are planning on 1 tag per chapter.......

    There doesn't seem to be anything to benefit #X-Men. Wonder if this new system will cycle different hashtags for different months? Seems much more limiting. I'll wait until it's live before making a definitive judgement, but it doesn't look great going by the description...


    it says there won't be any new buffs for a while...

    Some combinations yes, some aren't. The Mercenary/GOTG one is the more problematic for me with only Platinumpool being ranked, and I don't see how can groot be useful in a quest, but I will reserve any additional opinion until I will have tried those nodes myself ^_^

    I would say yes if you consider that there are only six classes but much more tags, so it's easier to have a couple of ranked champions for each class than for each tag, even if they group more tags together. I don't want to say anything about rewards, but I do believe that going by tags makes those nodes harder to take advantage of ^_^

    Like @te_dua_shum mentioned, I’ll add that for example you take the #avenger tag. Personally I don’t have a single avenger above 6*r1 or 5*r4 but have full teams of every class at 5*r5 or 6*r3. So difficultly is raised if people don’t have those champions ranked. Although if the levels are made so any champion can do it but take longer then that’s okay it just sucks to take more time out of people’s life’s.
    I dislike both class and the tags just as a heads up. Hate both things completely. Wish they'd do away with altogether. But I don't think it warrants an increase in difficulty.

    But the argument y'all are making is the same for the class restrictions. Some had diverse skill rosters some didn't.
    Not really the same thing. People do rank ups based on class all the time. Especially since you are bound to get catalysts in all classes equally.

    If I get excess mystic t5cc i look to my mystic roster and rank the best champ I have. I have never ever done rankups based on whether or not I have a #avenger ranked up
    By diverse, I mean they don't have those options to rank. Missing from their roster.

    Guess I'll be skipping this month since I only have a few of those champs ranked up. Oh well, there's always next month

    Considering only a few of the S-tier champions have any of these tags, I'd say the difficulty will be higher. Looking at these tags, 0 of my 7 r3 6*s fit any of them (doom, Hercules, apoc, AA, prof X, moleman, g2099) (someone feel free to correct me here if I missed a tag that fits someone in that list). And of my 20 r5 5*s, only a few of them fit those tags. So for many of these quests, I won't really be able to use most of the champions that I've invested in.
    This change seems to promote players to move away from just using and ranking up the god-tier champions. Whether this is a good or a bad thing, I'm not sure. But I will say, it's going to feel pretty lame ranking up low-middle tier champions just to use them in one quest for EQ.

    All of those resources I used from cyber weekend went into champions that don't fit any of these tags, and that feels pretty awful. We'll have to see how it feels tomorrow though, but I don't think I'll be able to push through cav EQ with mostly r1 6*s and r4/r5 5*s without units. We should see better synergies though, but I don't think synergies make up the difference when I could be using r2/r3 6*s if it were class-based quests

    I think this is a little extreme. In the past we were still able to use any champion we wanted in the levels even if there was specific class bonuses. I use to use warlock/g99 on the mutant level that inflicted bleed on the attacker. The levels are locked to the specific tags.

    @Demonzfyre i see the point you’re trying to make but making changes on a difficulty that’s already been set and people have made rank ups for means that their characters are now worth a lot less. Angela cleaned up on cavalier before. Now because she has no tags, she doesn’t get used. I took red guardian up for his usefulness in the science chapters. Now he’s irrelevant. The more logical thing would be to create a new difficulty level with the tag system or an event.

    Completely disagree. There's not a single person ranking champs just for Cav MEQ's. That's just not happening. This is coming from someone who has a R4 6* Silver Centurion who has none of those tags either. I just posted all the champs on my other thread but rewards don't need increased because you can't use Angela. it's also just like the last iteration where you can use her, just can' take advantage of nodes.

    Those champs didn't always fit the global nodes for Cav EQ either though. And be honest, you did not rank up Doom for just Cav MEQ.

    It's too early to judge what these 'buffs'will be like without actually seeing them first but had a quick look of each of the tags I have in my roster.

    Currently I have 30x5R5, 1x6R4, 16x6R3, 24x6R2 so I would say I have a fairly large roster but I do still have some weakness in Organization tags

    Number of Champs at 5R5 / 6R2 or above for me for each tags.

    Guardians Of Galaxy: 0
    Symbiote : 5
    X-men: 11
    Illimunati: 3
    Inhuman: 1 (Quake)
    Avengers: 6
    New Avengers: 3
    Shield: 4
    Defenders: 1
    Sinister 6: 0
    Thunderbolts: 1
    X-Force: 4
    Kree: 2
    Champions: 2
    A-Force: 5
    Chronos Corps: 2
    Thanos Army: 2
    F4: 4
    Alpha Flight: 2
    Bewhiskered: 10

    (i have these but idk what this tag is for)
    CivilWar - Iron Man : 0
    CivilWar - CaptAmerica: 0
    Stark Tech: 0

    Whilst Cav mEQ do give benefits to each class, there are times that I actually ended up using champs that dont get the benefits of the buff but works well with the nodes. So hopefully it wont be too limited but looking forward to it.

    I’m actually excited to try something non-class based. I really wish there were more areas of the game that we could really experiment and utilize synergies more. With so many fights requiring specific class/champ counters I don’t feel like I get to try out some synergies that look fun. Not sure this will be any better but it’s a change of pace at least. We’ll have to see how it plays out.
