    In general, I'm happy with the upgrade from PHC to Grandmaster shards in the arena milestones except for one thing - since you are making fewer PHCs available, the class Advancement solo events should now be updated to give points for opening GM crystals, and not just PHCs and the basic star-level crystals.

    People are talking as though having 100+ 6*s compared to those having 50 6*s means having twice the time to grind.

    Go watch tater’s latest video on how he got SC in arena. The BULK of points came from refreshing your arena boosted top champs. ANYONE can do that, provided you’re willing to spend the units and time to do so.

    (Side note: for players who aren’t going for the champ, the new arena milestones are too high and overly grindy.)

    Bring back the old arena system.
    Improved the old MS there.
    Adds the Basic4 and Alpha1 representatives to the 4 * stadium. That's only fair !!

    Then there are fewer stadiums and you can invent a 6 * stadium for the really big players.

    I know kabam, it's always about the good money, but don't always forget the other 90% and play the stadium for hours a week to get a bit further in the content.

    Bring the old system and improve and do a fair split of the MS there.

    Hey guys it might be a shocker but they simply do not care enough. Check the 26th ranked player in the Shang Chi arena and you will, or should, understand what I mean. If they did care enough, they would have taken care of that issue first.

    No, it's their business and they care, but they overlooked it when making the change.
    Yep sure they do, just like they did before the changes right? Always got rid of the arena cheaters 🙃
    If there was an easy way to do that, it would have been done. For that matter, they do. Unfortunately it's like Whack-A-Mole.

    This from PROF HOFF sums it up... it's about those of us that DON'T have the 5 & 6 star rosters (not enough of them or not enough of them ranked/leveled up) to even have a chance to grind for anything in these new Arenas



    Bringing back the 3 & 4 star Featured & Basic Arenas for UC and/or Cav & under players only makes the most sense

    Then only Cav and up players can even have access to the two 6* Arenas

    Finished with 9 hours to spare.. Sunday is a day off from game for me.

    thanks Kabam for finally giving me something to use my whole roster on rather than finishing in a day

    Now hopefully secure 1.5k 6* shards and be very happy. Go again on Monday


    Just a whale who doesn't care about the community as a whole..... maybe Kabam is hiring... you should apply Monk1
    What do you think a whale is? Everyone who has large accounts are not whales. Also, just because he likes the arena does not mean he does not care about the community. They are not mutually exclusive things. May be you should delete the forum account just as you deleted the game. Just a thought.

    I get that most people including me don't like that the grinding for units have been made more time consuming. But attacking anyone who actually likes the new arena structure makes no sense. Some people have played a longer time or spent more money or both. Why are you targeting them instead of giving feedback to Kabam?

    As for advantages while playing new arena: increased scoring, new opportunity to get 5* and 6* champ. I also liked the idea of getting grandmaster crystals, which is a great boost. While it gives more rewards, it is almost impossible to reach all milestones for mid players. Moreover, I felt like the use of 2*, 3* as well as 5* have diminished significantly. What is the point of ranking lower tier champions now? New arena gives less units, which is a primary reason while many players grind. I dont feel like participating in arena anymore and thus, lose interest in the game overall. At this point, I really preferred the previous versions of arena.

    No one should be attacked for liking the new arenas but their comments should be criticized.

    10% of players are responsible for 50% of the revenue.

    The other 90% are f2p or semi-f2p, and they need reasonable access to units or they can't play the game at all. The new arenas are cutting off their oxygen and they're slowly but surely dying. That's half the game's revenue!

    The whales, spenders, and vets need to realize that the advantage they enjoy over others won't mean anything if the game dies.
    Why do those comments matter less than others? When someone says they like the new format because it suits their roster, they immediately get called out as whale or a Kabam shill. Why though? The game accommodates every kind of player. Why should anyone be criticized for liking the change?. Lots of people don't even like arena even though they are FTP and don't grind them, should we criticize them too?
    BTW, you have no data on how much players are completely FTP or how much are casual spenders. Only Kabam has the data. So, we really cannot judge what will happen if they decide to keep the format and milestones. All we have are some immediate reactions from players. We could have players adapt and start grinding more or grinding less.

    Indeed. I don`t like the new format either. Because I am a unit grinder. But my friend always only did 1 arena. And he always grinded to about 18m in the old featured 5*. So for him. Nothing really changed, only that the effort past 12m now has units. So he gains from it. GMC, units, battlechips, gold and 6* shards have gone up for him. He likes them. And from his point of view he is right.
    Although I still hope they make the 6* basic for 4/5* max so the units grinders can gain something. And maybe even out the units by giving all arena's 180 equally so lower ranked people can also grind a decent amount to become uncollected.
