    So are the 2*'s not giving more points per round like in previous years?

    Respectfully, I understand that we aren’t entitled to a bunch of 5 and 6 star shards and while I would certainly like them, I’m okay with just not getting them. But you could not pay me actual money to grind out 7 million points for the two arenas at 5,000 points per fight in one week.

    1400 fights. Almost 500 rounds. People are just not going to do this. You might as well have just not done this at all and saved yourself the backlash.

    I had the point total wrong but it’s still about 1,000 fights. If each fight takes about half a minute you’re looking at about an hour of grinding every day.

    Good luck fitting all the fights between these maintenances :lol:

    Still wrong 1000 gives you about 5.7 million points

    Excuse me, I have to make time for this. Maybe if I get rid of half of sleep and dinner time daily?

    me too...do you think my work would understand if i said i need 1 week off because i need some shiny 2* crystals?

    I'm getting closer to 6K per champ so the total rounds is closer to 200. I get that 200 rounds over a whole week is not unreasonable for a grinder .. but there are 9 other active arenas at the same time. Aren't we supposed to be at least dipping into those as well?

    On the bright side just imagine how many units you'll get from all that grinding.






    But seriously please up the point values...

    If you cut out your lunch completely as well, you could put that extra 30 min into sleep time.

    I'm waiting for the disagree train to crush me, but it's not that bad.

    4,000,000 points at call it 5,000 points/fight (I'm calling that an average...my higher PI 2* are getting closer to 5,700 with the 3x multiplier).

    That's 800 fights divided by 3 fights/series puts you at 267, so let's call it 270 total for the early series on the way to the 3x multiplier.

    The arena runs for 7 days, so that's roughly 39 series/day.

    If maintenance would stop, you could do that in a couple hours.

    I'll grant you that it's probably difficult to reach all the milestones in all the arenas, but choose where to prioritize. I'm personally going for the 6* shards first, and I can't think of another piece of content in the game, EVER, that has yielded 5,000 6* shards for no money spent, and an investment of just a couple hours a day.

    You know, I think my reaction to those numbers might be the name of the arena.

    F***ing hell.

    I mean seriously, I’m an arena grinder, hard arena grinder, but this is ridiculous. It’s just not feasible

    Lmao this is low key easy

    If you are a TRUE Arena Grinder you really wouldn’t be saying that
    No. It’s really not. I hit all the milestones in the 4* basic, featured and 5* featured, plus the catalyst arenas. I maybe do 200 rounds per round overall.

    This is 1.5x that. In two arenas. On top of all the other content they are pouring out. And the regular arenas. And incursions. And AW and AQ
    Exactly. I grinded the arena for Cosmic Ghost Rider Featured and still "only" did 400+ Arena Fights in a Row.

    And I didn't do arena for 2 weeks because that was horrible and even though I felt it was worth it, there was no new content and it was the end of the month when I did it. But man, that drained my soul.

    Kabam raises points, there is a lot of content that came out this month, the arena is short on time and there is still content to complete, secundary missions, book 2 act 1 and there is still variant 6
  • Can we get an answer and not just an edit of the title and original post please?

    Even if it's just you are looking into it I'd say it would stop the panic and people upset or disappointed until something concrete can come from it. @Kabam Miike @kabam boo

    I'm sure it will be fine. I'll just ignore my midterms to get the last 1,000 shards as well. I'm sure it will be fine if I just say "I had to get some rare 2*s instead of passing."

    This is like getting to the moon on a moped. On paper it looks feasible, and all great. I don't even see the practicality of this.

    Rounds to get 6* and 5* Shards: 600

    Time to complete each round, incl char select, game issues, helps: 2 min

    Total Time: 1200 Min or 20 Hours

    Avg Time Per Day Req in Arena: 2 Hours and 51 Minutes

    You guys really thought that was a good thing to throw at players?

    At the very least bump arena to finish at the end of the month.

    What the hell did you do to mathematics to end up with those numbers?
    At max streak you get like 18k ish points for max 2*s. And if we take a very conservative amount of 3 minutes per round it already amounts to 11 hours.

    They did answer in a different post I think. Its the correct amount of points. They just have unreasonably high expectations of grind imo.

    Dude, you miss the whole point. That's a celebration event. You shouldn't have to grind an arena like a featured champion, just to get half of a 6 star, in a celebration event, and while everything else in the game still goes on.
    And mind you, there's A LOT going on, with more to come!

    I may have typed wrong.

    I meant could they say that anyone at Kabam is looking to change anything other than their stance it's "working as intended". Either the ability to bring in higher star champs, adjust the points - something because it's a backlash and not a celebration for all right now. It's people being upset.

    Sorry. I didn't type it correctly and thank you for spot checking me @Thekiller8967
