**RESOLVED ISSUE WITH SIDE QUEST KEYS**
The game team has resolved this issue. Keys will be distributed via in-game messages and the quest timer will be extended.
More information and timeline here.
*This includes currently unclaimable keys as well*
**WINTER OF WOE - BONUS OBJECTIVE POINT**
As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

In the current meta where does Blade fit in?

    Blade is still a beast. Running suicides takes the wind out of his sails tho.

    Blade is perhaps the best champ for suicides and max recoil.
    omega, corvus and ghost are better with suicides so he aint the best
    When they can throw unlimited L1s and L2s with max recoil and heal back to 70% without synergies let me know.
    They are literally the best options for suicides. Everything is probably dead before they can even take recoil damage. Ghost completely takes advantage of suicides and takes no damage at all with hood, Omega and Corvus heal from will power. I don't think blade can contest with that.

    I like and still use him a fair bit but then in the last 3 months I've only played the mutant treasure Island and I don't have Nick, Elsa, Stealth Spidey etc.
    I'm wondering for all those that have ranked "arena fodder" or any of the other vote options that aren't "he's amazing" would you have the same view if he was available as a 6*?

    Claire, awakened CMM, ghost with hood synergy, are probably the best champs with max recoil.

    Omega and Corvus heal back
    Ghost takes absolutely no damage at all even recoil with synergies
    Let’s see some of that regen when Warlock or a heal block node shuts off that 70% regen
    Corvus doesn't even have a regen. With full suicides his bleed healing will run out and then he's just a dude getting poisoned and Omega Red will need to use his specials to access regen and won't keep up with recoil at max. Omega and Corvus can't touch Blade's regen. It's not even a contest.

    Ghost 1. Has to bring Hood and 2. Can't avoid recoil on L1.

    Yes, I will concede that it's considerably more difficult to regen when you're heal blocked. 🙄

    If we play, "Yeah, but if..." the end result is that every champ is trash because there's a contrived scenario where they suck.

    Ghost can ignore recoil, omega can heal to 100%, not 70% and Corvus they’ll be dead already

    Blade is good against matches where his danger sense can be utilised

    Which is about 6 unless you’re bringing dead weight with you as a synergy

    BWCV. Doesn’t need to stand and block in the corner praying that the enemy doesn’t fly in and destroy her Heath with block damage

    Are you kidding? Still go to for all content.
    he still worthy for rank 5 in 2020

    Skill champs suck. He’s definitely still top 5 in his class.

    Being able to shut down any mystic with synergy is nice for whatever lame boss nodes get cooked up for new mystic champs.

    He was an mvp in one of the chapters on my quest for Act 6 completion. Cleared the entire lane with him, helping me get to the boss with a full health team of 4 and him on 40%.
    Any champ that can accomplish that is still pretty useful imo.
