    I saw message about this new change for rewards

    To Qualify for Rank and Milestone Rewards, a Summoner must have been in the Alliance for 7 or More Days and contribute at least 1 Point

    But I believe 1 point is not enough to qualify for rewards, Should be a lot higher.

    Especially if an alliance needs to get to first milestone to even qualify

    Agreed. Should be that alliance members have to reach their first milestone in order to receive rank rewards

    Game froze for me a few times and I lost my match because I couldn’t select champs. Kabam support closed my ticket saying that they are aware of BG issues but aren’t refunding my Elder Marks that’s were wasted. That sucks, hoarding elder marks until these bugs are sorted.

    I’ll never play BG again. Moding and cheating almost every round Kabam should give everyone 100k 6 start shards for having to deal with their BS day in and day out.

    They gave me 130k 6* shards this month thus far by playing maybe 30 mins of bg’s per day, and i lost about 70% of my matches

    Hello Summoners!

    During our first Battleground season, we listened to Summoner feedback and made adjustments for Season 2 to address major feedback. Here is what’s changing in Season 2!

    Intention

    We wanted to address 2 main themes from player feedback:

    1. The Rewards in the Victory Track, Gladiators’ Circuit and Events did not feel balanced
      1. Battlegrounds is a competitive mode, so players should feel most rewarded being the best; the initial reward structure did not reflect this
    2. Our initial tuning of Battlegrounds required a lot of activity which made the rewards feel less impactful

    Season 2 Dates

    Start

    • October 17th, 2022

    End

    • November 14th, 2022

    Changes

    Updates to Alliance & Solo Event

    • Players will be able to make progress in the events using PvE Energy
      • Elders Marks have been retuned and will be used to accelerate progress towards milestones in these events
      • By giving players the ability to use Quest energy to make progress in Solo and Alliance events, we needed to reassess the role of Elder’s Marks. We’ve made them a way to accelerate your progress, but not the only way to progress. However, it’s going to cost more Marks, but for a significant acceleration.

    Elder’s Marks

      • Elder’s Marks storage capacity is increasing from 4,000 to 9,000
      • Elder’s Marks entry cost
        • Increase cost from 15 → 90
      • Elder’s Marks Unit cost
        • 135 Units = 315 Elder’s Marks
        • There will no longer be large bundles of Elder’s Marks for purchase
    • Players will receive additional Elder’s Marks based on their remaining balance of Elder’s Marks against the new conversion rates
      • Conversion rate will be 2.625x

    Alliance Event Objective Points

    • Energy:
      • Select a #villain Champion during Draft Phase - 20
      • Assign a #offensive burst Champion as a Defender in Battlegrounds - 40
      • Assign a #defense utility Champion as an Attacker in Battlegrounds - 40
      • Matches Won - 750
      • Matches Complete - 375
    • Elder’s Marks:
      • Select a #villain Champion during Draft Phase - 120
      • Assign a #offensive burst Champion as a Defender in Battlegrounds - 240
      • Assign a #defense utility Champion as an Attacker in Battlegrounds - 240
      • Matches Won - 4500
      • Matches Complete - 2250
      • Note*
        • Points earned for Unit spend is the same for Elder’s Marks as it is for using Energy
    • Elder’s Marks allow players to reduce the amount of matches required to hit Milestones, but the value is the same in terms of entry cost

    Updates to Victory Track

    • Added more Trophy Tokens in the Victory Track and made it less back-loaded to higher ranks
    • Even distribution of Elder’s Marks throughout



    Updates to Gladiators’ Circuit

    • Greatly increased the amount of Trophy Tokens earned from ranking on the Gladiators’ Circuit
    • In combination with the decreased costs in the BG store, amounts to much higher value than previous season

    It's already known about the bug in not being able to properly Ban that 1* Symbiote.

    In which Banning champs is not even mentioned in the original re-quoted announcement, so there’s no need to re-quote it and take up needless extra space in forum page here before getting to your comment ? So fyi for future, you can avoid a re-quote of a very long original, and just get to your remark.

    So when BGs returned, I got bumped up a rank but I don’t think I got the rewards. What the deal there?

    Is the leaderboard down for everyone?

    Not sure where else to put this so I guess it goes here.
    I seriously hate having to sit there for 12 seconds as the timer ticks down after the final fight of the match just so I can get my solo points. It is barely not annoying when you win, but after you have just lost a match, especially under let's say a dubious scenario, I find it to be rage inducing to watch the count down just to be told again with the fun boing noise that I have lost. I am able to count to 2 so I already know I lost.
    Just about every other countdown in BGs has a way to cut it off when you are done with your action, but that last bit after the match is over just let me wallow in self pity and move on more quickly. I have taken to just force closing my app cause at least then I still get my points but don't have to sit there waiting for the loss screen.

    A button on the screen to skip the line and go back to the lobby would be great. or at the very least please decrease the countdown. If I want to relive my misery I can always go to the recent matches page.

    Win or lose, I hate it. That timer is sooooooooo long. And then you have extra screen with rating update and some animation of your pfp flying around the screen. A fight may take less time than all those pixel dancings. Take it down to 3 seconds max, add skip button, add match again button, move after countdown screen info into the countdown, of you believe it's necessary. I mean, we don't even have a normal leaderboard, way would I care what number do I have?
    But dropped input is the worst thing in bgs for sure

    He didn’t even kill the defender. Everywhere else in game you lose 50% for not killing defender when time runs out.

    You knew what the scoring was when the match started. Maybe instead of rushing, being aggressive and losing half your health, you could try not getting hit so much.

    In battlegrounds, you get a KO bonus based on time, essentially. You also get twice as many points for damage done as health maintained.

    There should be a kill bonus. IMO, health remaining should go to 25k and a 5k bonus if you kill the opponent.

    Where it’s a timed fight and you time out it is.

    Correct. A time out should cut your health in half.

    Can you guys reevaluate the alliance rewards for the season?

    We get a disproportionate amount of T5 class catalyst and not enough of the basic alpha and t3. T5 class cats are flooding the economy and no where to use them because of the bottleneck atm. If anything just give us more trophy’s and let us choose t5 class from rewards or another preferred item.
