    Lol we don't even have content suited for R4s, why release R5s?

    Because the top percentage of the players are having dozen of r4's now, so marketing wise kabam needs a new and shiny thing to attract those people because r4 materials ain't cutting it anymore for them
    u mean 1% of the player base?

    You can’t look at it that way, since story mode was changed after act 6 there isn’t technically content where you need 6* at all
    The point was, that there is no content that would be challenging for R4 6*. About the hardest we have is Act 7, that is already easy enough with R3s.

    But that won’t change for a long time, we know act 8 will be like act 7, and that won’t end for what, 2 years? That would mean we would be at rank 4 6* for at least 3 years. It’s not reasonable

    Meh, could release them halfway through act 8 like they did with r4s in act 7

    They could always do a switch up halfway through act8 in terms of design. It's unlikely but possible

    its a fraction of 1 catalyst of 1 class. You need 3 (plus several other resources which while becoming more common, don't grow on trees).

    Its still going to be quite a while at this rate before r5s exist, let along someone has a full team of them (unless of course the "new gifting event" is abusable).

    This. A fraction of one T6CC isn't going to get you a 6* R5.

    of course but just shows that they are probably gonna be here sooner than you mightve thought, or at least sooner than i thought

    As long as 7 stars isn't in the near future...

    Don't want to grind to get character's all over again...Pretty should Mike acknowledged such a thing at one point.

    Maybe the idea is once you are at 6 star rank5 you unlocked the ability for relics?

    He never commented either for or against them. He said whatever they introduced, either 7*s or Relics, we would always have something to work towards.

    Makes me wonder how many r5s they’ll sell for the gifting event top prizes. The most disgusting event in MCOC and now it seems we have an inkling at what the prize will be

    I never understood this logic of “creating content for the highest tier rank”. People typically rank up the best champions anyway, how is creating content for them going to differ in terms of outcome? If content was created for them as r3 6*s, how different would new content be if they’re r4?

    You're right but now more the ever do I think that ship will return. Compared to when act6 first came out the champions we have at our disposal today are insane not only in damage but the amount of utility and ground they cover. As well players will have act1-7 and v1-8 compared to when act6 was released which was act1-5 and v1-4. I just think it's time for that change.

    From the players perspective, they aren't needed for content.

    From the game perspective, that's big $$$ incoming.

    The arrival of T6CC means the next thing to chase (7* or relics) is also around the corner

    But once the floodgate opens. It may start with a few shards but their is the rest of act 8 and then the cyber deals right around the corner.

    If they are starting to let out the t6cc shards I can see that being their money maker on the cyber weekend deals
    It's actually not that soon, compared to the history of 5*s.

    Maybe see a r5 6* in a year…? Is too soon? Okay buddy

    Everything depends of what Kabam's schedule is. We can easily have the first r5 after Christmas. One cat with BG/EQ rewards for three months, one with cyber weekend deals, (or maybe two), and one through shards from the new, shiny X-mas crystals.

    I find it funny how people said we wouldn't get 7*s for multiple years and we'll most likely have R5 7*s in 2-3 months.
