**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.

My problem with Rocket's Workshop

Whether or not you like the rewards, I think the format is badly designed. I know it costs no energy and there are no fights, but it's becoming tedious to have to enter and claim one thing over and over again and I don't see a reason for it. Let's say someone wants 6* sig stones and has enough scrap to get 20. Just let us go in and claim the item until we run out of scrap. There is no reason to have us go in and claim one stone twenty times.

    they really should've just made a store with the items that cost scrap. makes no sense. i imagine that it was because they didn't want the paragons purchasing the cav items, etc. but that would've made it so much easier

    What do you mean by “paragons purchasing the cav items”? They are all throne breaker items. Paragons don’t get an increase in rewards any more than cavs get an increase from throne breaker. They groups all 3 into the same reward bracket this month.

    forgot that all 3 were grouped into the same thing. my point is that i think their purpose was to make it so that you can only purchase items from your progression's tier of rewards. in the past, when there have been stores, you can purchase your tier and any below you. although, i don't completely understand the rationale because there's no purchase limit on items

    the current one doesn't have the best design, true. I wonder why it's not similar to the first one from 2017 where we had gated paths. I think it'd be way less "tedious" if there was one gated path with 50k scraps (aka the current entrance fee) and a teleport so you can pick whichever reward you want, with the ability to replay the quest immediately after reaching the final node.

    I wish to rename it as Rocket's crapyard horrible event

    It makes me want to give back my "Rocket's Little Helper" title I got from the first event lol. I actually use the "Button Pusher" title from the same event for ignoring his warnings.

    Not a big deal IMO. I like the rewards. A store would have made more sense.
  • So, I ran it for the first time now, without having read much about it beforehand.
    Have to agree with earlier comments in here.

    Looked at Preview, no rewards visible (I figured as much, but that normally means they are random rewards), and no champs visible.

    So are they “Ambush” fights ??
    What about a “Hidden” Boss ??
    Who would I need to bring, how strong are they ? Etc, etc.

    On top of that, the customary pop-up warning dialog about exiting the quest early, or not finishing before the timer would end for the quest.
    Meaningless if no opponents, and 0 Energy use, so it makes it seem like something will be tossed at you unexpectedly on the paths somewhere.

    Would have been much better as a STORE.

    I mean, I'd say it's a minor inconvenience, but it's not that bothersome for me.

    After doing 17 runs yesterday I agree with the OP.

    I was thinking about making the same post! Totally agreed! What is the use of going on a path again and again? Just make a store and players can just take the number they want

    TB with 3.4 mill account.

    The rewards are good this month. I've taken Mags to R4, Havok, Mordo and CAIW to R3, and will take Moleman to R3 when I get more iso. I have never come close to being able to do so many resource-demanding rank ups within 2 weeks.

    Some players get hung up on the fact that Cavs have access to the same rewards, instead of looking at what they actually get in rewards themselves. Simply petty.

    The only thing missing is a replay button, when you choose rewards, otherwise everything is great 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    And what does this has to do with anything said above?

    As @Opandemonio pointed out, this is completely irrelevant to my post. This thread has nothing to do with whether the rewards are good or bad, Cav or Paragon.

    At least they could have left the Replay button 🤦

    Nice to see that they (sometimes) actually listen. Honestly at this point in the event I'm surprised they would put in the work to make a store, especially as a lot of us no longer have vast stores of scrap. While I don't like the way it was implemented, I also appreciate the nod to nostalgia. I enjoyed the event the first time around. Anyway, happy to see that they listen to the feedback from time to time.
