    Looks like Kabam replaced symboids with sentinels for some more CASH GRAB. Mystic sentinel is unbearable with its power-gain. All of the sudden sentinel will be at sp3. Before someone tells to use magik. Let me clear one thing, we already use magik in AW and how can we use magik in both AW AQ ?

    Coming to Science Sentinel, it all of the sudden special attack becomes unblockable where as nothing is written in the description.

    In short, Sentinels are brought into AQ to screw players and grab some money out it. well played KABAM

    and also sentinels are IMMUNE and as fight goes on they take less damage. Just think of day 5 in AQ that how easy will be sentinels.

    I can't remember the last time I lost a single champ on Day 1, let alone my entire team. Yeah, this isn't more difficult at all. Give me a break! What a load of B.S.!!!

    Then get good

    Yes they are harder. A lot harder than the symbiote
    The mystic sentinel are the worse and they are on bleed and poison node.

    So let’s list the stuff we have to overcome
    Bleed or poison node
    Heal block (nothing new there)
    Fatigue ( because Attack get less and less effective)
    Power gain
    Unblockable sp

    I feel I am in modok lab and can’t use the dice to change those buff.

    And you can’t counter their so because you have to evade at 2-3 times and you end up too far.
    Yes we will adapt but It’s just day 1 and lots of people struggle because the champ we spend so much resources to rank up are now worthless.

    A lot champs that everyone has ranked was based on past AQ nodes etc. some the champs are useful but u can not use a wolvie on a Sent. DD would be great option if he hit harder since his nerf he has not been the same. But when I hear guys say I took enormous amount of hits to clear a sent it’s crazy again we got talk about people leaving which sux Bc some of these players have been in same Alliance for 3 years

    It is not really about difficulty, it's about fun.

    It would be fun, if the Sentinels are like Sym, mimicking champs move & mix things up.

    And I'm dying for random champs to fight as well. Gimme that
  • I’ve been playing Contest of Champions now for a little over a year, and I have to admit I truly enjoy this game. Like many of you, I’ve been irked over the last many months about the various bugs, gameplay issues, freezing & lag problems, and other random game issues that occur. Despite how frustrating those can be I’ve always been willing to take the good with the bad and press onward.

    However with all of that said, I know I am not alone when I say that the AQ changes are nothing short or infuriating. Here is a short breakdown of just one of the most obvious problems with the recent change:

    Difficulty
    The Problem: The Alliance Quest is one of the first and most significant ways a player begins to build their roster, skill level, and overall gameplay and technical prowess. This is also true for veteran players as well. For a large portion of the player base AQ is main source of their alliances ability to progress and grow. We all accept that depending on the map you choose that each map has inherent difficultly. With that said, and as an example, if Map 5 had a difficulty rating of 5 (for a 10 million rated alliance) it now easily has a difficulty rating of 7 or higher depending on how skilled or lucky the players in that alliance may be. Regardless everyone agrees that Sentinels are a much more difficult fight and a drastic difference when compared to their predecessors. For MANY alliances this now means that players are now forced to spend units on revives, potions and other resources to maintain previous milestones.

    The Possible Solution(s):
    *Lessen the abilities & power of the sentinels.
    *Increase the number of regular champions in areas where the sentinels were previously located
    *Add alliance revives and alliance potions as a 100% completion reward for a full 5 day 100% completion. (E.g. Each player receives 2 lvl2 Alliance team revives for completing AQ 100% for all 5 days, and the team receives 3 level 3 alliance health potions for killing the main boss within 20 hours of each daily event for all 5 days. Etc.)
    *Final solution, just bring back the Symboids.

    I don’t know anyone who likes the new changes. Please Kabam, we all enjoy this game, but this looks like an untested money grab, even if that’s not what you intended. Help us and give us reason to not throw in the towel by at the very least listening to our concerns. Thank you for your consideration.

    the entire premise of this is based on one thing. Sentinels' difficulty. It's DAY 1 and you fight the same sentinel at least 6 times every day. that's 30 times a week. You'd think that by the 20th time or so, you would have figured it out...right. This makes AQ easier by ten folds! plus, they gave us Halls of Healing so you can account for your short term learning curve

    Seeing recurring threads on this subject is also boring.

    We agree 😂

    Hey gang -

    Just wanted to drop by and thank you for the feedback on this one. We'll be sharing your thoughts with the rest of the team.

    Please don’t! Because it isn’t boring! Everyone’s just trying anything to get them out because they can’t bleed or be poisoned!

    It’s silly! Just keep them in! We can all put our batman voice on at the start of a fight and say...

    “tell me, do you bleeeeed”
  • Hey everyone -

    I've merged a couple threads into this larger one so we can keep all the feedback together.

    We'll be sharing everything with the rest of the team.

    It is damn boring to fight Sentineloids. Long fights against the same exact fighting style, just with some abilities changed around. It's bad enough we tend to fight multiples of the same Champ over the course of a map (my paths have me fighting 2-3 Skill chumps, 2 Science chumps, 2 GP, 2 AV, 2 RR, maybe some more skill chumps at end depending on who gets there first). Now all of those chump fights feel the same, and the Sentineloid fighting style/AI seems very defensive and clunky, with weird ways of fighting that make the battle drag on even longer if you don't have a high-power champ to smash them with, a situation many Alliances will find themselves in when War is going.

    The skill sentinels are ridiculously hard - purify / debuff immune but they can't be pushed back into a corner without giving them analysis charges, you can't intercept without giving them analysis charges, you can't prep a team easily since they are mixed between lanes where you need other non-mutant champs to clear that lane, they have immunity to damage from mutant champs that can regen and deal with their high output.. told Kabam this would be an issue (again) and they just don't listen

    Why are you posting again saying it is easier after 20 fights? I mean its Day 1 and you only fight the sentinel 6 times every day? how did you get 20 fights in? It sounds like you are making things up or playing other users accounts. Honestly, people are complaining about day 1 because we know how it scales to day5. Halls healing are great but they end and we are stuck with this AQ.

    If you don't want to fight AQ Sentinels, you can always do map 6 full time.

    I have been playing for years. It took a long time and a lot of money to build up my team. Now my team is fairly useless. Why? Because I have a bleed team. With sentinels being bleed immune, my masteries and top champs are now a total waste. Am I alone in being really mad about this? If kabam made power drain teams ineffective there would be a player strike. So let's hear your voice if you feel your bleed champs have be unfairly castrated.

    If you've been playing for years you should other teams also.

    How many R4 5 stars do you have?
  • Faru916Faru916 Posts: 12
    That's what I thought.
  • AxeCopFireAxeCopFire Posts: 1,115 ★★★
    4 r4s and 1 r5.

    Nah I have a 5* rank 4 x-23 and I’m not the least bit upset. In fact she might be my next rank 5

    because math....you have 5 aq's every week. 6 times a day. sounds like you just come here and comment on nonsense. by the time we get to day 4 or 5 everyone will start complaining about how repetitive it is to fight these things. everyone will be laughing at themselves, taking back what they said because everyone now has a handle on it.

    and if you're not getting better at fighting someone after a few tries, then you should try a different game. go use your duel credits and find nathan or whatever his name is with the 5* sentinel.

    Just took 50% blocked damage from a single Sentinel. They sure aren’t harder the Symbiods...

    Why you just standing there blocking though!?

    You take block damage from everything...

    Parry, evade, intercept. Don’t just stay there holding block lol

    Day two, and it already feels like a much bigger chore than ever before. Like fighting mud, disguised as lollipops, colored in by my three year old. Sluggish, boring and tough fights. Hating it with a vengeance.
  • borntohulaborntohula Posts: 403 ★★★
    Nebula will be good for all classes if sentinels. Get 5 shock charges and none of their abilities work

    Nope. She doesn’t work well at all. Tried it. No dice. Stark Spidey and Hype both do better.

  • Dexman1349Dexman1349 Posts: 3,060 ★★★★★
    Medusa and Stark were my go-to champs during the monthly event.

    That being said, that Skill Sentinel is a huge pain in the ass...
