Remove Sentinel from AQ

It is unanimous in my alliance that Sentinel is 100% a money grab in AQ seeing that they are impossible to kill without using special techniques. They are destroying the enjoyment that so many get from AQ and the rewards are garbage for the effort. If you keep them in AQ why don’t you consider t2 alphas and t5 basic and increase rewards from map 5 and 6 crystals. Stop being greedy and toss your loyal players a bone for once.

    Maybe you just use the wrong champions... Red Hulk, Iceman, Black Panther, Hyperion, Angela, Spiderman (Stark Enhanced) and probably some more can finish off Sentinels quite fast.

    I agree with Colonaut123. Get the right champs and just get used to fighting them. Theyre not impossible. Don’t you find a challenge more fun? Everyone wants a mindless AQ that takes no skill and no potion use? Just go through the motions? BORING

    People complained that Aq was to easy and boring.
    Kabamm adds a slight challange (sentineloids aren't that difficult once you learn them) and people start crying it's to hard my AQ team is useless now... maybe idk don't put all your eggs in one basket by ranking both wolverine and x23 for AQ.
    I've taken a couple different teams and so far have only died at boss fight cause let's be honest I'm not a boss killer but I try.

    Give it a month or so and people will start complaining it's getting stale and boring again

    It's early days now. You'll eventually get used to fighting them. But I've gotta say, they should have added sentinels with the new AQ season.

    “Impossible to kill without special techniques”
    Lol. Are you serious? Your whole alliance DOES hust want mindless fights without any skill? All these new champs take different fighting techniques

    I liked the diversity of movesets the symbioids had, made the fights a little more interesting. Fighting sentinels and their 4 moves of doom highlights what a chore a lot of this game has turned into. Punching and kicking the big robots in the robo-nads is a hoot tho.

    If I had to make a complaint about them, I would simply point out that the sentinels have slowed progress for newer/progressing alliances. I have a number of teammates who were still struggling with map three, are free to play, and have made very specific rank ups to be more help. I imagine that the same is not true with the more powerful alliances, some of whom are not even dealing with sentinels (ie map 6). I guess I didn’t want much AQ turmoil in the interim between the AW seasons. Or, at least, if there was turmoil, give us the chance to opt out by dropping to a lower map.

    @Colonaut123 I can finish Sentinels with my Thor fast, but they are tedious and boring. Their animation is awful. I want them gone too.

    I find your argument puzzling, as now we have a map full of a character with the same exact animation/specials. AQ has gotten more boring with the addition of sentinels.

    What's fun in fighting/avoiding the same animations 4-11 times a map for 5 days a week?

    I think the sentinels are quite irritating in the long battles when pretty much everything becomes unblockable. Also some of them have random buffs that are not noted anywhere. I also agree that fighting the same Champ so many times in each map is boring and tedious.

    What im saying is, people just want the same champs that they’re used to fighting and beating easily over and over again. They seem to want to just go through the motions. God forbid Kabam switches out the symbioids for sentinels, that make aq even a little more challenging...

    How were people finding enjoyment in aq? Aq has been stale for at least a year. It’s the same monotonous questviver and over again. If you can’t handle the challenge of a new champ in aq then do a lower map. The difficulty scaling between maps is terrible anyway. Maybe this will balance it our just a bit

    So many are benefiting from others struggling in AQ. Totally understand all the people who like the sentinels now because they are getting better rewards. Sentinels aren't that bad, but they are enough to break down motivation. 10 of my alliance have given heads up that they are leaving for retirement groups if nothing changes from Kabam before next AQ. I will probably join them and go full free to play. To all the guys thriving now, enjoy at our expense. I wish you many Colossus and Kamala Khan pulls in your future. 2cents

    Hyperion treats them like aluminum cans. I was ready to quit also but I decided to take him off aw defense and move him to AQ offense. Just parry and use his heavy a couple of times use the sp2 and it's match over. I still use x23 for all non sentinel fights

    Aren't you a bit melodramatic? If the game would be easy, you wouldn't have played it in the first place. Sentinels are really not the end of the world.
