**UPDATE**
We are currently working to fix a known issue regarding Alliance Prestige. With the introduction of Relics, Summoner Prestige is now the average PI of your Top 5 Champions and the average PI of your Top 5 Relics (regardless of which Champion they are attached to) combined.

Today we pushed a fix that will allow for proper reward calculations in Alliance Quests. However, the display for Alliance Prestige will not be accurate and does not include Relic Prestige. This is a display issue only.
**KNOWN ISSUE**
Some items are displaying erroneous star ratings. This seems to be happening most on items where typically there are no star ratings. We have found the cause for the issue and it will be resolved, targeting mid-late next week.

Am i the only one who hated this month's side events and rifts?

    I don't mind the rifts themselves, it's getting to it that was more of a pain.
    Hunt down champ
    Collect ticket
    Complete quest with 2*s
    Collect Intel
    Wait a day
    Hunt down champ
    Collect ticket
    2* quest
    Collect Intel
    Buy detector
    Go into rift, remember to change teams
    RNG reward
    Just an unnecessary tedious process!

    I didn't mind saving for chronometer, used it on the 9th rift.

    well written...all of that for some bad rng rewards...& in my case...can't use my chronometer...because I didn't found the mutant AG, in 12 rifts...this is crazy

    The thing I didn't like was the amount of times I had to go in and use two stars to do that small quest it gets tiring after awhile

    I have been doing red rift epic. I keep getting 5 sig +1 almost all the time.

    I thought this was supposed to be random but seems loaded. I thought maybe I am mistaken, but it is so much so that now I can just tell I will get one of the 3 worst rewards available

    This is completely disappointing. Wasting so much time and now even spending money to buy intel to just get the worst rewards available makes it feel like I’m being completely cheated!

    2 Star quest is a bit annoying, because I save up 2 tickets and then do the 2 Star quests back to back. I quake all 3 dudes then use Star Lord on Taskmaster, but I'd prefer to get intel from bounty missions. Still happy that I got to awaken my Aegon and I got a five star featured crystal from it too. Hoping to get 1 more 5 star awakening gem and some more 5/6 star shards

    I think it’s been great. I’ve ran 14 rifts and got the chronometer. Unfortunately I still haven’t seen the AG I’m wanting, but I’ve gotten 2 other AG’s and 4 five stars and some 6* shards from a SIDE event.

    The energy is a bit much but it’s not that big of a deal

    I didn't enjoy it that much either

    Loved it as I didn’t buy the chronometer and still got three 5* ag. Mutant, Skill and Cosmic. Sure it’s an RNG based event but really it’s not that bad.

    Exactly, people's opinion is based on what they got. If RNG blessed you with good stuff, you're happy. If the RNG god cursed you with ****, you're a bit salty and whiny.

    “Hate” is a little strong. I felt more of a settled resignation towards this month’s events.

    The one major piece of saving grace was the chronometer: I’ve often ranted that players should have more autonomy and RNG less sway, and the chronometer was a fair way to do that. I got one thing I wanted that was actually helpful, I got a handful of other stuff that was okay, and it wasn’t that difficult to do.

    Without the chronometer, however, this month would be just another series of duels, mindless quests and mostly fruitless rifts for me.

    While the chronometer is a better than RNG, it still relies on RNG on what you get if you are looking for a specific AG, and that is where it fails.

    If this would have been a generic AG for example, then, it would have been better, or even if it can turn the AG you are looking for from whatever is on the board.

    I am 0 for 12 waiting for the AG I need. It usually is skill the vast majority of the time, then 1 mutant, and 1 science and 1 tech.

    Those not getting the one gem they want should not have limited themselves to only one class. I wanted skill, but also told myself that mystic would also do. First mystic showed up on my 9th rift so I used my chrono. Never saw a skill, and I have 0 epic rifts left. I'm happy with getting my second choice.
  • Silver_SagaSilver_Saga Posts: 360 ★★★
    Nope, you're not the only one. It was another RNG ****, like everytime they think it's a good idea to dig up the rifts (a very bad timing considering the overall feelings that have been shared by a lot of players lately). And unfortunately I'm fully confident it will be disappointing again the next time, because of course they'll come back...

    Only thing I liked this month was the 2 stars crystals, says a lot about how lacklustre I find these past 5 weeks...

    That’s very bad luck. You’re looking for mystic or cosmic? Or either?

    The side quest was boring and I hate RNG rewards.
  • ThepainshotThepainshot Posts: 2
    I thought the rifts were great, especially the fact you could save
    Up and get a great item for doing a task that was a little time and energy consuming but worth it in the long run. I really hope they bring this event back again

    theres a good amount of people including myself who have been targeting a specific class and it hasn't appeared yet. I'm still waiting for a cosmic to show up. I bought the chronometer and ive also purchased the extra intel every day in the store, so I'm going to get the full 18 runs in - some days when i've run the quest twice it's been the same class. I had science show up four days in a row.

    I have a good account and it won't necessarily hurt me if it doesn't come up (it's annoying and I think a badly designed event and game mode), but for those trying to get a game changer all month to awaken one specific champ, like Aegon for Labyrinth, they are probably much more frustrated than me.

    Sometimes you get good luck, sometimes you don’t. I got each location at least once except for the catalysts and 1k 6* shards. Sorry if you didn’t

    @Nick_Caine_32 @SparkAlot best of luck then. I’m not sure I’ve seen a Science gem (would have been useful) and my first mystic sightng was yesterday. I did see a cosmic first run after I saved 3500 intel, which was useful.

    But I would agree that most of the people I play with have had “clumpy” AG choices—maybe the same 1-2 classes max showing up on all their runs. But 13-18 runs is a small sample size, so that clumpiness isn’t impossible.

    Previous rift events have all been very bad for me. The RNG never seemed to swing in my favor.

    The addition of the chronometer was a welcome one. While you aren't 100% guaranteed to get the awakening gem of your choice, it is very likely that you will and in the rare chance that you don't, so still get your choice of 10K 5* shards, 1K 6* shards, or a featured 5* crystal plus whatever else you manage to pull from the rest of the rifts. In all, it's a fair amount of resources from the monthly side event.

    I will agree with others that the intel should have come directly from the daily target. The 2* map we run with the card to get our intel is lazy, monotonous, and uninspired. Get rid of it completely.

    In all, the event was boring, but the rewards are better than most side events we run. I was ok with it, but it could use some improvement.
  • Mirage_TurtleMirage_Turtle Posts: 1,868 ★★★★
    On top of getting our intel directly from the duel target, I'd make the following change if I were to do it again:

    I'd cut the chance to "Chance It" and land on the Awakening gem path to 1%, but change the gem to a generic. This means people who save for the Chronometer are guaranteed to get a useful awakening gem if they want it while still leaving it as a rare chance for someone to happen upon it by sheer luck.
