Summoners, we recently encountered an issue with the Alliance Quest Setup Phase Starting Timer that may cause the Setup Phase Starting Timer to display erroneous information, though we are working on a fix for it as quickly as possible. Additionally, if the Setup Phase does not let you plan your days in advance, you will be able to once the Event officially begins on the Alliance Quest Start date.

For clarity, the next Alliance Quest Enlistment Phase will begin on December 5 at 20:00 UTC, regardless of what the in-game timers display.

The next Alliance Quest Start will be on December 6 at 20:00 UTC. This is when Summoners should be able to enter each Map. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.
Alliance War Season Rewards will start to roll out to Summoners very soon. These will take a while to get to everybody, so do not worry if an Alliance Mate receives their rewards, but you haven't yet. We thank you for your patience.

Is it me or has the game lost its way

Starting to lose my love for the game, there was once a time when update the game gave you 4* awakening gem! Now it seems anything you need you have to pay for and even that isn't guaranteed! Been playing for 3 years and spent more money than I can count just for small advantage and getting no where

    When did they ever give a free 4* AG for updating the game?

    Idk something wrong with the game or with you, but I know that if the game doesn't fun for you, you probably need to quit despite what I or other forum members think.

    It's was once the best game to download, I played it for hours a day but now can't bring myself to log in. Im aware I'm only one player kabam probably couldn't care less about my opinion but thought I'd see what other players views were

    I only log in now for the calander rewards games lost its way and gone right up poop creek. not gonna lie feels nice not constantly grinding away.

    Even logging in for calendar rewards isn't worth it, theres no enjoyment in the game what so ever! grind for months on end in a free to play account to get anything half decent

    @Darren1984 when did you receive a 4* AG for playing? Has this been in the past couple of years (2018-2020)?

    Maybe 12.0 then? Just struggling to recall such a time.

    Agreed, I'm super close to another 6* though. Once I pull yet another trash 6* I will more than likely pack it in. But what if its a good one.... who knows, will have to wait and see

    I don’t think awakening gems existed when the game first started 🤔
    Cap ww2 was released when the game was already available for an extended period of time.

    Probably 12.0 . I remember getting two four star generic ags for something, but I didn't know back then. Now, I'm sure it was 12.0

    That’s what I was wondering. There was a big giveaway phase where the game seemed to be trying to accelerate maturation of certain newer segments of the Summoner population. Just trying to see if that was the case here.

    Yes it has lost its way. The ability to buy your way to the top is more prevalent then ever. You can basically buy your champs if you are willing. I think the real change came with the cav crystals. Grandmaster odds were really bad so it didn’t make as much of a difference. It really has been turned into an RNG PTW casino these days. Even the majority of the deals have this feel too.

    I realized How bad it was hard today watching a cav opening crystal video that really just made me realize how bad it’s gotten. When someone can open 30 featured crystals and if they are lucky get more value in 6* (and probably close to as many 6* total) that I’ve gotten in 5-6 months of clearing content including 6.1 exploration, 6.3/6.4 completion, abyss 1st pass, variant 1 and 4 exploration(others done before), every EQ, war, etc so on there is something wrong.

    While you are happy for those people when it happens you also realize that something feels really off that this is a thing in this game. It’s disheartening because it makes you realize playing the game well and moving through content means a lot less in terms of progression of roster than it should and what really matters is how much you are willing to spend on growing your roster through deals and opening rng crystals.

    This, to me, was when I think they started getting worse than usual. When they made it so if you didn't keep your 1 stars (I did, luckily) you had to purchase a crystal with a 20% chance for the lower valued champ! It was just so blatant that they intended to screw people over.
  • if you work hard, get good, practice you're skills, and always push for new content, you'll do good in mcoc.
    Just look at brian grant. He's F2P and has beat all content in the game other than abyss

    I feel like it has kind of lost its touch too but I don't fully complain Kabam for it. I feel like prior to me watching YouTube videos on this game or even coming on the forums I'd probably still have the same fun that I used to have, because the forums and youtubers opened me up to the bad things Kabam done for the game and I feel like if I just did my own thing without looking at YouTube or the forums I wouldn't care as much for the trashy things they've done for the game.

    I think it all went downhill with cowhale lol

    I'm as burnt out and unhappy with the great as it sounds like most people are right now, but kabam has done some things that I feel are great for the players & the game. The glory store is the 1st thing that comes to mind, objectives are another I just wish kabam would use the objectives a little better, objectives could address alot of resource issues in game, like the gold issue that's still effecting alot of summoners. The last thing I'll mention are the nexus crystals, but I really think they should do that type of choice with alot more crystals, the free/r hour crystals why not get a choice between revives/health potions/etc, not necessarily on every crystal but at random, in a legit rng. Same with the free daily crystal, I mean a choice on either reward or class would make things alot better as well our needs change why shouldn't our rewards. Just my 2 cents, it ain't worth that I know but still.

    COW never did anything for the game. He pretty much just opened crystals and hired mercs to do all the real work.

    He quit the game, but ASGRD still manages his account and spends on it too.
    COW was big, but there are still bigger whales in the game(like HQSEAN, who may or may not still play)

    I don’t remember why but they have 2 generic 4* AG back when I started. Around February 2017. Used it on Miles Morales and War Machine so I won’t ever forget about it.

    They have screwed up the endgame. Cheap glorystore prices make it so dumping glory on rankup mats can give ANYONE a fat roster and high prestige. I’m pulling 40% of a t5 every AQ and that’s being in a 500-800 AQ. Between game content and these things, I’ve added a dozen 5/65s in 12 months (I think I spent $50 each on 4th of July and Black Friday) and we don’t even pursue gold 1/2 war.

    Meanwhile, there’s no realistic way to deepen my 6-star roster and no reason to bother ranking those champs over 5-stars I can more easily dupe and more easily boost sigs.

    It shouldn’t have taken nearly this long for t5cc access to reach the player base at large, and it should be much, MUCH easier to get 6-star shards (even moreso because they add 6 trash champs for every 6 new champs).

    I don’t even flinch anymore when I get featured 5 star crystals because I’m so accustom to the **** champs.

    The side quests feel a bit more tedious. It could be my disdain for AQ AND AW. When both are going, it’s so exhaustingly boring.

    When new champs are released I don’t get excited anymore. I almost can guarantee I’ll pop 5 or 6 featured crystals and get a 3 or 4 star version. But usefulness and synergy wise....nope.

    The last time I truly logged on and had a blast....was the Hulkbuster beta. It felt so dang on Hulkbuster-ish. It was fun, the content became refreshing, the idea of going balls to the wall and being a wrecking crew just really made it cool.

    All too often I find many of the champs I have to have some weird rotation or ramp up and it just gets meh.

    After having my kid a few months ago, I’m FTP. And it’s definitely slow rolling over here. Getting enough 6 star crystal shards leave me already disappointed before I even hit open (I seriously duped 6 star Abomination and Ebony Maw.)

    Yes OP...things are stale. I’m at that weird stage where I don’t have the one champ to crush the highest level of content....but I’ve finished all the mid tier stuff.

    This is happening coz lot of people still support Kabam with whatever wrong they do, which gives them courage to keep repeating their deeds with summoners/players.

    If players don't unite and ask for basic rights it's no use..
