Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

Players are quitting all over the place. Hope Kabam is taking notice.

Once AQ is over today, alliances everywhere, including my own are taking one big collective deep breath to survey the potential damage.

And I am getting the same story from everyone. Kabam introduced a significantly more difficult AQ without fixing the glitches everyone was having first.

The main issues:

dash back not registering, blocks not registering, unintended heavies, unintended mediums, and evade and parry of course being impacted by the dash and block issues.

So, here we all are searching for new players to fill the voids, because glitches plus incresed difficulty forced them out of the game.

    My alliance has 6 players quitting in just 2-3 hours bcoz of the same reasons you mentioned and all of them were good friends in alliance and we can't find anyone that can do map5 with all these bugs and sentinels. Sad to see this game going good to bad to worse

    Smart people! :) All the best to them! :)

    Guys, same song different verse. I have people that aren’t even joining aq because of the ****! Im not spending a dime on this stupidity. In a nutshell, fix the bugs 1st and then worry about difficulty.

    6 good people from my alliance are making noise about quitting altogether. KABAM YOURE RUINING THE GAME!!!

    Similar thing here, before AQ change, our participation rate is always 30/30 for months.
    After 1 week of new AQ, 1 officer quitted, now participation rate is only 20/30 (.... with 10 active members feeling sick of fighting the AQ). Way to go Kabam!

    Before the new AQ, members did spend loyalty or unit to buy revive/potion and used it in AQ as sometimes ppl made mistake and lots champs, and everyone aimed to achieve 100% in AQ. Now? teammates NO LONGER bother to buy and use revive/potion. Yeah, good business prospect!

    Just take a look at how Kabam doesn't even allow you to evade/dodge Sentinels special 2 with certain champions. This game is going down hill fast.

    Nowadays, I only try to evade PURPLE DUDE's sp1, and block its sp2.
  • Quite a few from mine, and more coming. And they managed to take care of the whales this go-around with how war is set up being bracked at the top gaining two 5* R5s and 6*s even R2. So, “them” being the major issue, Kabam probably doesn’t care. Kabams business model seems to be front-end and back-end. They prey on the unsuspecting new players and hook them even though they don’t have a clue. And they take care of the spending whales. Divide and conquer. Seems to be their model.

Guys please make Kabam understand this is NOT OKAY @Kabam Rose @Kabam Miike @Kabam Vydious @Kabam Loto @Kabam Zibiit

    Doesnt the debuff from sci sentinel negate evade?

    looks like his sp2 animation goes like this: first barrage are coming at the same time so you can evade that. the second, LOL, good luck cause it looks like it comes one after the other in like a split second.

    so unless youre an alien or something no way you can evade or parry that sp2 second part. rip aq

    Yes power burn/lock champs are the way to go. Also some quake n bake works as well. But overall... its bs

    I’ve played the game for nearly 3 years now, and I just no longer have interest in Aq anymore. And because of that, ranking up will be a pain in the arse.

    Again, thanks Kabam
    With much Love,

    After you knock down (heavy or special) science Sent you get an evade / dex debuff. You see debuff pop up after GP's L1 special in video. Once you understand each Sent class abilities, they get easier a little since you know what to look out for but still take notably more effort than Syms.

    We have had 2 players leave to take a break from our alliance with another 2 considering it as they arent finding it as fun. It is a shame, but hopefully kabam will get this sorted. I am glad they tried to give a challenge for endgame players as there isnt much content that is a challenge short of LOL (and many have done that 100%). I have faith kabam will act on feedback ... eventually.

    I agree. They don't really address the issues and they remove lots of posts. They are out of touch with the player base.
  • MarriMarri Posts: 260 ★★
    Guys, easy solution, everyone just play map 3 and don't use items. Focus on solo content and war. That might just send a message. And stop some of the T1A shortage rants.

    We ran map 3 and dropped to 3-3-2-2-2. We are still having fun.
  • Matt_louMatt_lou Posts: 95
    @SKK65 it may not be effecting your alliance, but it is mine. We are a close knit crew.

    Again, if you die because the game is broken, just call it a day, don't revive. In any other branch the money stops when the product is not performing as expected or intended. Why do people in mcoc reward terrible performance? I don't get it.

    "But I'm letting my alliance down" -> no, you're not, it is not your fault when the controls don't work. If anything, your alliance should have sympathy for you and say "We understand, don't sweat it, it is just a game. Better luck next week after maintenance."

    It is just a game. If performance is bad, play easier content and certainly don't spend to cover poor game performance. That's the only way you can keep it fun. Lighten up!

    It is sad to hear that Kabam cannot fix such a simple game play like dash back, block, etc. If and when they resolve this issue will definitely resolve some issues in AQ & AW.

    Now with AQ Sentinel-loids are a pain to fight...without having stun, power control, armor break champs....the issue is that for years we as a community have built our rosters for bleed damage using precious resources. I feel an option to improve the game would be offering a rank down tickets, like one 5, 4 and 3 star option to rebuilt our champs.

    Yep, the change in routine, be it "bugs," increased difficulty, silly-named new characters, inconsistent rewards/rng pulls - it all contributes to some of the collected masses forcing their heads up from their phones, taking assessment of their situation, and realizing Theres no finish line, it just goes on and gets worse, and I can't believe I've spent all this time loving something that won't love me back or pay for my retirement plan unless my name is Dave or seatin. Fun!
  • SomeoneElseSomeoneElse Posts: 424 ★★★
    I am in a similar situation. The lag and control problems are so bad now that I feel like a liability to my alliance. But I do not spend to revive or heal. That is the mistake I think people make. They feel pressured to spend, which gives Kabaam very little incentive to make this a priority. People cry out for change, but then they throw money away, which keeps the problem alive. How you spend your money actually makes far more difference than posting your thoughts here. People don’t value that enough,

    I love how it’s “after this current AQ”

    Your just moaning about sentinels but blaming loads of bugs.

    I don’t notice many of the bugs, whether it’s my device I don’t know, but my controls work fine most of the time.
