**RESOLVED ISSUE WITH SIDE QUEST KEYS**
The game team has resolved this issue. Keys will be distributed via in-game messages and the quest timer will be extended.
More information and timeline here.
*This includes currently unclaimable keys as well*
**WINTER OF WOE - BONUS OBJECTIVE POINT**
As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

Thanks kabam for 7.4 until…

The option of choice being taken away feels violating and predatory. For months ive spent my sigs and catalysts in a certain way to set my account up to be as good as it can be. Now I pulled a skill 3-4 gem and i’m back to square one. Couple this with the offer of a lifetime for completion and 7.4 went from my favorite chapter in story mode to a predatory RNG fest.

    For people asking, yes ive finished everything (not the new carinas but im not worried about that right now). Yes i have every meta skill champion. The problem is i’d have to invest 160+ sig stones into any of these champs if i wanted to r4.

    You would probably have brought a skill to rank 4 eventually, you might even forget who your first was at a certain point

    doubt it, they have dog water prestige or an irrelevant sig ability

    Why must you spend Sigs again? Does the Gem not work without them?

    Could be a prestige thing

    Almost like it was on purpose.
    throwing 199 sigs into thor ragnorok or hit monkey is very consensual very fun way to enjoy the game 😆😆😆😆

    If I cared about prestige, I would probably pick Rags. I don't, so I put all my sig stones into Herc, Namor, and Aegon.

    That choice the game presents to players is deliberate: if the game made all of the best prestige choices also the best sig up choices in general, the whales would be able to automatically corner both prestige and power simultaneously. Instead, the game forces most players to choose, to make the prestige chase non-trivial. Chasing prestige is honestly pretty expensive in both time and money, and it is one of the ways the game funds its existence without impacting most of the players of the game.

    When players pour resources into making themselves more powerful, they also make the average content in the game harder, because the content is balanced around averages. When they pour resources into chasing each other's prestige around the block, sure there are power benefits associated with that but the vast majority of those resources do not go into things that make the game harder for everyone else. That's ultimately why it is how it is. It is a way to monetize the game with the lowest impact on everyone else outside the bigger spenders in general.

    If you want to play the prestige game, and rank a champ you want, and only put sigs into champs who need it, and get the exact class you want, AND to not have RNG in a game fundamentally built on RNG then that’s something beyond having your cake and eating it.
    In this game that would be entering American Pie territory.

    actually, you can go ahead and use the r4 gem on any champ, regardless of sig. even if they're unawakened! nick especially is great at sig 1
    That's like putting rims on a hoopty ....

    Thor ragnarok to rank 4 plus his prestige is amazing after his buff he is super solid to play... with Odin pre fights he can simply nuke opponents.

    I figured this is what you really meant before everyone hopped on and jumped down your throat. The lack of 6* sig stones in the game especially when the farmable ones (Cav EQ) are RNG, can be very frustrating. I get it. I too have every rank 4 option in each class to combat the RNG gem buuuut I won't look forward to a science or cosmic 3-4 gem because then that would mean the sigs for my intended second r4 (Kitty) would be compromised AND on top of it all, I would have to likely use a generic awakening, for either one, to go along with 199 sig stones. Why? Because the other awakening gem in the Act 7 is RNG and would be a skill awakening gem based on how much I've gotten those on my account. The two champs for me in question are Overseer or Knull btw. I'd be happy to bring either to r4 but I'd either have to whale out during spring cleaning or wait the bulk of year to get Kitty to sig 200.

    Anyway, I say all that to say, that the dearth of sig stones in the game takes the joy out of the 3-4 gem for me because yeah, Sig stones are an absolute must and the champ that you intentionally want to take to r4 gets the **** end of it. I "overstand" your gripe.
