    Where is the information ? @Kabam Miike

    Right? There's absolutely nothing from the Kabam team. Even if the update is "we won't be providing an update until compensation drops", that would be better than nothing.

    It would be a day without another compensation post. What’s next a gold, iso or rdt post?

    These posts keep coming back, I mean they have to answer eventually right

    They already gave the timeline so nothing for them to say till it actually drops, then they’ll merge all the threads complaining about it and do 1 reply at that time.

    I wouldn't be shocked if it was after Black Friday/Cyber Monday offers. If it includes units/shards/rank up resources, they wouldn't want to risk people not spending on the deals and using the units on those offers instead of the cash offers.

    Ya the massive bitchfest you’d get if there were actual rewards is unfathomable, no chance kabam will want to deal with it. Has to be only boosts/consumables

    I think it will be the equivalent of what we received for defeating the champion boss. I would love for it to be more though for sure.

    I don't, I said "if" for a reason. None of us know what is going to be in the compensation package. It more than likely will be consumables but since no one knows, there is a tiny chance some units or other items would be included.
  • Sorry for the revival but it's better than creating a new thread, any updates on this ?
  • DannyB01DannyB01 Posts: 360 ★★★
    Objectively, act 6 exploration took a lot more resources than 6.2.6 exploration. If it really is just consumables, then Kabam would need to manage the overflow situation. Perhaps they will, but I think they'll try to circumnavigate that issue with something slightly different (but agree it'll be heavy on the consumables).

    I now have one path left in abyss.. my only content left. It would sure be nice to know when this is coming so I can plan accordingly.

    I gave up. I have 2 paths left and I'm starting my next path tomorrow. I'll wait the last path until cyber Monday. We'll see
    I gave up waiting on it for my last runs as well, wanted to make sure I finished it off before the Cyber deals on the off-chance that they feature T5CC selectors - that way I’d be able to make a more informed decision based on the catalysts and champs I pulled from exploration.

    I think so far the only official word on this (that I’ve see) has been on Twitter:



    I’m hoping it comes through at some point soon after the November update, but by the looks of things we may be waiting a little while longer.

    Great sleuthing @Octoberstack ! Great to see it being acknowledged at least. I'm hoping we'll see it with the November update also, but expect it'll be with the December update.

    Well I officially completed my 4th path of Abyss like I said I would. I have 6k units ready to do my last path and it would really help for an update. At least say whether the compensation will be happening before of after cyber weekend. That would allow all of us to stop asking question daily on the matter.

    If it takes until after Black Friday, it is out of pure greed. There is no reason it should take several months after all act 6 changes are live to issue compensation. Let alone acknowledge it..
    It depends on how you look at it. Since no new content has been released since march, a lot of players would have no use for the compensation if it showed up now. Everything would just expire and get wasted before the book 2 release. If they at least wait till after cyber Monday, players who have no content to do currently would be able to use those consumables on 7.1. To me, releasing the compensation knowing that for many players ir would just expire before they had something to use on is the greed you’re talking about.

    You make a good point. If compensation dropped now in the form of expiring consumables, players would have 30 days to claim it, and a further 14 days before it expires in the stash.

    This might be just enough to last until Book 2/Act 7 drops in December. Hell, it might even be exactly what players need for an early Act 7 legends run. But it would all depend on whether that content drops as scheduled, and isn’t delayed to the end of the month (or early next year).

    From that perspective, deliberately delaying the compensation would make some sense. Though if this was the reasoning behind the delay, some transparency would definitely not go amiss.

    I never thought about it this way. Most of the people who 100% act 6 probably have all content done so it would make sense to wait until 7.1 is released but if that is the plan just announce it though. That way we stop asking questions which is still no excuse for not getting an answer already. Either way Abyss is getting done after cyber weekend for me at this point so it doesn't matter to me either way.

    Great points on expiring consumables timing for Book 2. However, Kabam could temporarily remove the item cap too.

    I agree, there’s absolutely no harm in getting a few updates along the way.

    Though I anticipate that the game team have a lot on their plate these days, what with scheduling champion buffs, organising the 2021 vote, preparing Act 7 for release, and planning EOY events like Cyber Weekend and the 6th anniversary week. With that in mind it’s plausible that there isn’t even a tentative timeline for the compensation that they can announce, even if they wanted too. All speculation, who really knows.

    Either way, wishing you the best of luck with your final Abyss path (and subsequent rewards)!
