**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.

7* shards from 4* punisher

I just opened some UC arena crystals. Got a 4* Punisher and already had him at max sig. The conversion gave me 275 7* shards. Surely that's not intended lol

    I can’t see any scenario where they ban people for opening arena crystals but could definitely see them going back in and removing the shards.

    They banned people for getting 2 gold pathes in mutant treasure island while others walked away with like 17 5* AG crystals. I wouldn’t doubt it

    delete this bruh y u snitching

    The last time there was an exploit like this, people got banned.
    How would you tell if someone was doing this purposely? Also thanks for the heads up
    Oh I don't know, opening all their BCs right away. They can see all that on the account.

    Y'all crying because you don't have Battlechips

    That’s a bold assumption. Besides this is already in the bugs section

    It's going to be ages before you get your first 7 star

    Ignoring the toxic comments**
    OP, Send the damn SS of the bug, so we can put LOL on it.

    I actually don't have a screen shot. I would usually take one, but I was so surprised I went straight to crystals to see if the 7* shards were actually there. I didn't have any as I got new champs from the featured crystal and even after opening two basics I pulled Black cat and Silver Surfer, both new champs. I now have 275 shards which came from 4* punisher. It's the first time he's been useful.

    I keep this post bookmarked for times like these. Having it happen accidentally won't get you banned. Knowingly doing it after finding out could get you banned.

    This is on entirely new level even for you. How can anyone possibly know about this to exploit? And battlechips are not an infinite resource. Once you open the crystals, you run out. And based on drop rates you probably will get only a few 7 star shards. Not like you get enough to open a couple of 7 star crystals. So hold on to the ‘exploit’ line of thought for actual exploits. This is a bug and most likely will be fixed soon.
    All exploits are bugs smart guy. It couldn't be an exploit if the mechanic was working properly. I am sure it will be but my point stands that if you open BC's and get a 7* shards from a punisher accidently, you won't be in trouble. But, if you keep doing it to exploit the bug, that's where you run into the possibility of having action taken on your account.

    So not real sure how this is a "new level" for me.

    But how does one keep opening them to "exploit" when the % of you getting said punisher is extremely small. Or do you mean that IF you open one and get 7* then you should immediately stop opening anymore despite the fact 99% of people open them crystals for units?

    I suspect, all that will happen is the 7* shards are removed off of people. I know for a fact if I opened up 10 of my 50 arena crystals and got 7* shards from a 4* punisher, I'd still open the other 40 crystals as I opened the first 10 for units, so I'd continue chasing them units.
  • Unless they say trophy champs give you 7* shards, then it should be assumed it’s a bug.

    But here mass opening battleships is something that happens regularly. Not really something you can pinpoint as an exploit

    Can confirm this as well. Not gonna open more obviously, but this one should just be a case where the removal of shards would be easier to do since no one is opening the 7-star crystals

    Can you explain what you mean by keep doing it to exploit the bug? Is it an exploit if you open more than 1 arena crystal? Or more than a mil? And all exploits are bugs but not necessary that all bugs are exploits. ‘Smart guy’!!
    Let's say you have 2mil BCs. You open 10 and see you got 7* shards from a dupe on pun. Then you keep doing more and more to exploit the bug. You know, how all exploits start?

    You can only open 10 at a time.

    The apologists will never agree but the simple answer to preventing exploits is for Kabam to test their content before they roll new stuff out. But we all know from experience of every new update that will never happen.

    Can I ask you a question? How many interactions in the game would you like them to test exactly? How simple of an answer is "test their content" really? I already know what your answer is but but out yourself in a devs shoes at Kabam. Would duping a 4* punisher to test to see if 7* shards come out be something that would have been on the forefront of your list of things to test?

    How exactly would you suggest they go about testing everything that's possible in this game before the next update happens every single time? Again, this is a serious question and I'd like to know how you'd go about seeing as it's so simple in your mind.
