Act 6 Changes

Hey Kabam,

I think the community would like to know at least if you are considering changing Act 6 or if you plan on simply keeping it the way it is.

    Also if anyone comes across this what changes would you like to see. For me it would simply be to remove a few nodes and gates.

    Yes, Act 6 is being looked at, but we don't know how just yet. I know we're going to get. a lot of feedback here, so I should let you know that first and foremost, we're looking at The Champion 6.2.6 Boss.

    We want him to remain a difficult fight, but with Book 2 on the Horizon (no established date), and the overwhelmingly positive reception of the Grandmaster fight, we know that we need to go back and take a look at this fight.

    Before anybody asks, I don't have any more info on the fight, or if there would be compensation.

    If a lot of players made it, that means it's possible !
    6.2 the least fun of the whole act, but 6.1 is easy, 6.3 is annoying only with the bosses and 6.4 is really good except for some paths and the GM was awesome

    @Kabam Miike please also look on defender / node combinations like for example:

    Acid washed mysterio (6.3.3)
    Rouge on this node which requires 3 debuffs to inflict any dmg (6.4.4)
    And I guess there are some others which are designed very badly

    Can't be true that some of these path fights (not even bosses or minibosse) are more expensive than the grandmaster without the right counter (especially if there are only one or two available)
    I agree some combination make the fight unfair and broken when placed on certain champs this isnt on in Act 6, this appears in variants i believe and monthly UC

    That’s good news to me. One of the main takeaways from the Announcement is that as it stands Act 6 is far more challenging and less rewarding than AoL, so with a buff to AoL on the horizon a serious look at Act 6 is required lest it simply becomes a stepping stone to Book 2. I know that even without the perfect AoL team completion and Exploration is probably not much more expensive than 6.2 exploration will be for 3x the rewards.

    I have very high hopes for Book 2 - thematic lanes along the Variant lines of design. I don’t mind hard as long as it’s fun.

    Stay safe :)

    This would be great kabam mike! I’m working through act 6, I don’t consider myself a god and can hold my own but some of these paths are insane. It’s more of the combination of nodes that really punish our champs and units. I blow through whole paths and then get to the mini with really bad node combos. More in 6.3 and 6.4. But I know the community says act 6 in general.

    Really appreciate the way you guys have handled this backlash. Can’t wait to see what’s in store with the fixes and all.

    Hey Kabam mike I’d appreciate if you could gimme a hint as to wether act 6 rewards revamps are in consideration at least because I completed act 6 for the first time two days ago and was completely drained from it so much energy such hard nodes and I took the easy path I can only imagine how much of a nightmare exploration would be... so I beat the grandmaster and I’m excited for all the rewards and then I pop my five star nexus the best option is dormamu was then pop two six stars jane Foster and Spider-Man Jesus I was livid I understand rng is a big part of the game but why not have included something like a generic five star gem or six star awakening crystal like cmon I trudged through all that hard and poorly designed content just to get those rewards... also I don’t understand why you guys would wanna update abyss rewards first most people care ab act 6 atm and you didn’t mention it at all... I hope you can answer and let me know if design and rewards revamps are being considered for act 6 because I just don’t understand how the rewards for abyss could be so much better then act 6 and be considered for a buff when act 6 is much worse and a nightmare please let me know thank you
