**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.
More information here.
**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

Got Punisher?

Nope, I don't!! 510 arena crystals and not a single 4* Punisher and only 2 energy refills. For real?! Thank goodness I got that 2.5 mil in gold though because I was down to a measly 5 mil on the verge of going broke!!

    That's not really surprising. I've opened thousands in over a year and a half and only landed one. He's extremely rare.

    I'm aware that he's rare. I've opened thousands over the last couple years as well and I've gotten 0. But to open 500 at one time and still not get him is garbage.

    The chances don't increase the more you open. The Drop Rate is the same for each individual Crystal. The computer generates an outcome with each individual Crystal. If the Drop Rate is, for example, 0.01%, then you would open 500 Crystals at 0.01%. No idea what the Drop Rate really is, but you get the picture. It doesn't go up if you open multiple Crystals. You just have more chances at the same Drop Rate.

    You could have gotten him in the arena recently for about 6.5M!

    You act like this isn't a normal thing...no Punisher here either and thousands of arena crystals opened as well.

    Who cares if it's normal or not? There are a lot of things in the real world that would be considered "normal" but are still not ok or acceptable. I guess you tell people affected by those things to shove off because it's normal too?

    It sucks tremendously and I felt like sharing my disdain. Major part of the reason I've been playing it less and less and playing other games more and more. Normal thing or not I'm still allowed to complain about it if I so choose, correct? Thanks.

    I have one duped...and am 0 for 18 on featured 5 stars. For bad luck I'd rather not have a 4 star punisher who will sit forever at r3

    To begin with we are talking about the low drop rate for obtaining a few special pixels in a video game, not some major real life event. You are free to complain about any perceived grievance from said video game. But be mindful that you open yourself to be called out when making such complaints as this is a public forum last I checked.

    Have you seen mass arena crystals openings by YouTubers such as Seatin, Brian Grant and Bustero lately? I'm sure they play the game just as much as you if not more, and have yet to pull a 4* Punisher from arena crystals. Dorky Dave only just got a 4* Punisher after how many years of playing MCoC. An alliance mate opened 1 million worth of BC recently and got no 4* Punisher. What makes you any special? You sound just like those who plunk thousands of units into Featured crystals, get zip and then wail on the forums about how unfair Kabam is.

    Newsflash; Kabam has had these piss-poor drop rates for many years and are in no hurry to change them. It totally sucks, but no one is forcing you to play this game either. If you don't like certain aspects of the game if not the whole game, then you can leave or shrug it off and focus on what you like about the game instead.

    As I mentioned before, I am yet to pull a 4* Punisher as well. I also do wish the drop rates for him are better, but not having a 4* Punisher has little impact on my enjoyment of this game and no impact on my ability to raise 2 kids, pay mortgage etc...you know, real world things that actually matter.

    It's just a game at the end of the day.

    It really is pure luck. Most of my alliance mates don't have him either despite playing since the beginning.

    I got him in the first 4 month of playing. And he sits un-ranked at the bottom of my 4* depth chart because I have much better skill champs to play with.

    Spent $50. Came up with a few 3*'s. No 2099. First two were back-to-back Carnage 3*'s. Just how they roll.

    Bravo, sir. I thought MCoC was the end all be all of everything, the answer to life's questions, the reason we all wake up in the morning. Thank you for the enlightenment!! :wink:

    I'm well aware that it's just a game. I moved to a semi retired alliance because I don't have as much interest in the game anymore. That was 1 million battle chips worth of crystals (technically 1,020,000 because I hit the buy 10 button 1 too many times). The most feature crystals I've ever bought for any one champ is maybe 10-15, never spent real money on them, and I haven't bought a single one since the Phoenix feature crystal. I haven't spent money on this game since New Year's and I only have that many units because I never spend those either.

    No, I've never watched any videos from anyone about this game and I don't really care enough to watch any. I know the drop rates suck. I know one is forcing me to play the game.

    And I'm also in the same boat as far as "real life" things. I support a wife and 2 kids, mortgage, car payments, etc and a I'm not deluded to believe that a 4* Punisher would make or break any of that. Honestly, I wouldn't even take him past 3/30 if I did get him, it's just principle. If you feel the need to "call me out" for complaining about pixels then more power to you. Thanks for taking it to another level. Last time I'll post a personal grievance on here out of pure sarcasm, sheesh.
