    I still want to hear the argument from Kabam for this. Miike says the rewards in Uncollected difficulty are focused on high-end rank up materials. 5* champs are the highest-end that exist until they release 6*s. You need more Tier 1 Alphas to rank up 5* champions at each rank than any other class and rank in the game. And yet, Tier 1 Alphas are NOT considered "high-end" rank up materials? How is that even possible?

    You're right! You do need them, but this mode is where you get a lot of things you can't really get anywhere else on a regular basis. Yes, you can still get 4-Star and 5-Star shards in other modes with some regularity, but Tier 2 Alpha Fragments (in this amount), Tier 5 Basic Catalyst Fragments, and 6-Star Hero Crystal Fragments are most readily available here.

    Tier 1 Alpha Catalysts are available in lots of other places, and we know you all want more of them, but this is not going to be the place to get them. Keep an eye out as we move to make these more available in the future.

    “More available in the future” would be appreciated if those opportunities to get them also apply for solo-players.

    An update of the solo rewards and all milestones with that added as an inclusion to the last milestone would be great.

    Since they arrived solo events havent been touched, it sucks as they are just boring and repetitive now

    I'm guessing some dev decided to give the event a go and got killed by Void's unavoidable damage without taking any hits
    "Guys, we might need to postpone this.."

    Soooo are we getting another heal block + unavoidable damage fight like last months ice Phoenix? @Kabam Miike

    Because the last Event Quest was our first with the Uncollected Difficulty, it was still brand new to us. We're now going out of our way to make sure that if there is a Magik, or Iceman, or champion that causes Damage Over Time that is difficult to avoid, that we are scaling their Signature abilities way back and making them more manageable.

    Honestly the primary issue with ice Phoenix was the heal block, if you got rid of that then it would’ve been much more manageable with a wider variety of champions, and while I understand you want to make it a bit harder, the bosses already have double the hp of those in 5.3 (admittedly that’s as far as I’ve got)

    So, if we don't have AQ for more than 24 hours, and the new event quest has been delayed, is there any possibility we can maybe drop Act 4 to two energy per tile to encourage folks to play? 24 hours of that would be amazing.

    As the game changes, people need to reevaluate what champs are "worth" what designations. I played from April to Christmas with 0 t2a's. By the end of January, I'll have two. Knowing these things are trickling out to the whole playerbase, you should recalibrate what champs you're willing to rank up. If you're buying 5 t1a's a week in AQ, doing the arena, and getting 1-2 a week from 3-day events, you can realistically pull between 25 and 30 a month. The glory change that was just made was significant. I'm sure they wanted to see if that was enough to placate the playerbase before introducing broader changes, and it sounds like they're going to introduce more soon.

    Can heroic be a bit easier

    I love the way mcoc goes on

    Thanks for that @Kabam Miike and co
  • BajjsbwuqjwBajjsbwuqjw Posts: 615 ★★
    T1a soursec

    3 day event...10x per month
    Monthly event 3x and if you do normal so 4
    Arena 3x per month
    Through glory we can buy up to 15 per month

    Thats 31 and enough to push 2 five stars to r4 per month

    Why in the world are people moaning at uncollected rewards they are insane for the time and effort put in it
  • ZachAttack06ZachAttack06 Posts: 61
    You don’t know how this works by now? Kabam comes out with extra content and we want more. Building a roster over time is boring. We want everything now. (Hopefully people caught my sarcasm)

    What is the starttime for this event @Kabam Miike
    I hope my energy charges dont expire)))

    Are we looking at a beefed up Ice Man as a mini boss in one of the final maps? Ice Phoenix was nothing more than a money grab during the last event.

    Ice phoenix was possible in a single run

    Ice phoenix was possible in a single run

    Enlighten me. Short of a full health Rank 4, 5* champ it was a health drain that limited you to one or two combos.
  • YellsomeYellsome Posts: 485
    Any update on when we can see the quests?

    and T1 alfas can be purchased with glory points and i am sure high end players can earn tons of them in alliance.

    There's a limit of just 5 tier 1 alphas per aq week.

    I soloed her a few times with WW2. Got perfect block the whole fight. Granted I was at 35% Health (after coldsnap) the whole fight and it was a long fight but got the job done.

    Hyperion can do with his high energy resistance as can SL. You just got to intercept like a madman.

    I did today with zero items for a friend of mine...it took 80% health from r4 starlord away but i could combo her down without a touch on me
