Earlier today, there was an issue where Summoners that logged on shortly after the Login Calendar switched over for the day didn't receive the Cosmic Ghost Rider login crystal. We've fixed the issue for players receiving the crystal now but will have to collect data and send out the crystal to all players that didn't receive it next week. We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to making it right for you all.

    Hey Kabam, I finished my first play through yesterday. Rewards aside, I am so excited to start on full exploration. I remember 6.2 just making me feel miserable at the thought of having to full explore. 7.2 is so different.

    I love the way the nodes make me think hard about which champ to bring in. The fights feel fair. I had to spend quite a few items getting the hang of the Gwenmaster fight but instead of dreading the next 5 times I feel like I will be able to handle it better the next time.

    Really, job well done. Absolutely loving this new content.

    I can't rank 3 a single champ or awake anyone after exploring 7.2 which was really a sad reality so please raise rewards in 7.3 Kabam.

    At least give us 50% t5cc selector and 1 awakening gem man, how hard for you to do it?

    You got a 25% selector from act 6 completion, another from 7.1 exploration (I'd assume) and now a third one. Along with >6 25% t5cc crystals, a bunch of sq crystals, and by now 3 nexus crystals from cav eq. I don't see how you don't have any t5cc, unless you intentionally chose not to get one...
    Oh you completely missed my point. I have 12 rank 3 6*. I mean after exploring 7.2 I should be able to rank 3 another one but I couldn't and that showed how little t5cc they give us as rewards.
    Ooooh, that makes a lot more sense. Yes, the rewards are rather stingy

    I just finished the fight with gwenmaster, The invisible woman part got a bit tricky for me. The rewards seemed a bit low to me considering there is a custom final boss, But it was a good challenge, good job Kabam

    Here’s where you went wrong, in case you go for exploration soon. If you die during the first phase without completing it, and just revive repeatedly until she’s dead, then you don’t have to worry about that phase or the Aarkus phase.

    You’re welcome.

    Have to say great job with 7.2 Kabam.
    You absolutely smashed it out the park with this content.

    Just completed 7.2.5. Before I dive into 7.2.6, I have a dumb gwenmaster fight question. So if you die, you start the fight and have to complete all 6 missions again? If gwenmaster is low health, can she be ko without completing all the missions?

    Take the 5-star lane. You get bonus 6-star shards and you do mad damage by just staying alive. I killed her on both accounts without completing the first phase. Only took a handful of revives.

    Doom with Reed synergy was my mvp on the path. Medusa was good. Falcon was good, and so was venom.

    For the first question, no. It’s sometimes abit buggy but you can either start again on the first mission, or continue with the current mission.

    For the second question, it means yes, you can KO her without completing the missions if she is at low health.
  • zuffyzuffy Posts: 1,215 ★★★★
    Sweet, used professor x and managed to KM phase and took 4m health off. I must have not pay attention and hit into her blocks. Got killed from her unstoppable.

    Anyway, 7.2 is completed and my rewards, I duped modok. LOL

    You don’t need any revives for that fight, I took me 0 revives.

    And this “other” definitely did. I’m on an older iPhone and I’ve started having lag/responsiveness issues. Dashbacks turn to parries etc.

    The window between a regular dash back and needing a reversed dash in to avoid the special was a mess for me. That node was great to just allow me to beat her down without mastering the phases or managing to build her prowess.

    I had a different issue. She kinda went into a shell sometimes and the was not charging every time when I tried to intercept. My Sp2 did not register in the Doom phase and before I could build up to another sp2 and sp3, the timer ran out. I had to use a revive because I forgot how to gain prowess in mutant phase. It was an interesting fight for sure. But, remembering what to do after every sp2 is some work especially when she comes back to mutant phase.

    Anyone finding the 3rd armour phase (invisible woman) tough to get through? The timer seems to beat me always...

    After doing initial completion, I'm about halfway through explore. So far, I'm a fan of the design overall. Is it grit your teeth difficult for veteran players? No, it's not. Does it make you think and challenge you to step outside the box a lot? Absolutely. And there are a few fights that made me rethink my strategy. Especially if you go in and explore the content without watching guides. I have nothing at all against content guides. They're awesome. Just saying that if someone wants a more pure puzzle solving experience, they can go in without them.

    Overall, I think it's a good blend of puzzle solving and some challenge here and there. I like that it's game knowledge based vs punishing for the sake of punishing if you don't have the perfect counter. It's up to you to figure out who your best counters are relative to your roster. Using your game knowledge/experience (or guides if you go that route). I like that I was taking fights with attackers I don't usually. Like, one example was fighting Medusa with Angela. High sig Angela totally counters her Autoblock mechanic, for an easier time to play around the nodes. Almost all of us just normally throw in the same old Nullify champs when we see her. But the nodes prompted us to use a Cosmic. Which was a refreshing change of pace.

    I still disagree that the completion rewards were exactly the same as the previous chapter, but so far I'm liking the quest design. I think the difficulty is fine for Story mode. Especially since we now have high difficulty content being released along side.
  • benshbbenshb Posts: 518 ★★★
    7.2 is still far easier than anything above 6.2. I have 100% 7.1 and 7.2, but I still have 6.3 to explore, and when I read those node combinations I feel physically sick. So those 7.2 rewards are good enough for the difficulty. Although for a semi endgame player there isn't too much exciting in them.
  • NockoNocko Posts: 593 ★★★

    7.2 was fun especially the gwenmaster fight, gwenmaster really tested my intercepting skills and I believe made me better at intercepting.

    I would have considered myself a below average backdraft intercepter prior to Gwenmaster.
    I just finished 100% about an hour ago and it was clear how much better i was at it by the end of the last fight

    Glad i saved the Juiced path until last, that was a joy to finish on, CGR absolute melted her

    I've got a 6* R3 NF so that phase was one of the ones i loved. Skill, Science, Mystic and cosmic were all pretty fun... Almost all my revives were used on the first phase... i had a hell of a time trying to get out of that the first few runs, mostly because im not very good as reverse controls... ended up using one of my champ swaps to bring in Prof X just for that phase

    Ended up being the right move, as it was much easier for me after that.

    we get more rewards from money deals lol terrible that act 7 chapter 2 is really bad rewards... carinas challenge gives more rewards lol


    Carina’s challenge is way harder and impossible to do with out revives. I still think 6.2 is harder than 7.2.

    Yah my sp2 didn’t register as well, kabam hopefully fixed that bug.

    Apples and oranges. I did 6.1.5 and 6.2.5 with a total of 4 revives because I played like trash against mordo. That was 40% t5cc selector for two paths, more than I got for 6 paths of 7.2 or 25 paths of variant 7.

    But I’m never touching the labyrinth stuff.

    Kabam has really knocked it outta the park with this one.
    Every quest has 2-3 paths I would consider there’s no one easy path like in chapter 6.
    Every node I’ve done makes me fight in a different way nothing was to easy and nothing felt unfair
    It was legitimately FUN one thing I’ll say just to add a critique not every node was super clear
    Like one read “all special attacks are unblockable” they mean all the defenders
    special attacks are unblockable.
    The chests instead of just the items wasn’t needed.
    Everything else was maybe my favorite content so far!
  • Kill_GreyKill_Grey Posts: 8,671 ★★★★★
    Best story content imo. Was long as hell, but enjoyable. Made me really appreciate some champs that aren't considered to be absolutely top tier. My rank 2 6* Mister fantastic was probably my most used champ along with my 5* Hyperion (power sting synergy is a godsend). Godpin, iabom and Molegod also saw a tremendous amount of use. Torch and Doom coming in clutch as usual. Ghost obliterating a few paths as well. Apoc and horseman AA also dominated. Sym supreme really came through, and made me change my impression of him. There's a lot of other champs I used (probably between 30-40 champs used in total). Overall, it was very fun.

    I went into exploration with the mentality of not using Quake for any fight, and I succeeded. Claire and Nick also saw minimal use as I wanted to diversify my squad a bit. Warlock did almost literally nothing, and stealthy was my MVP for the last quest, soloing gwenmaster about half of the time.

    A lot of my paths were itemless as well. Rewards gave me an of black panther from the nexus (not too shabby), and I chose science from the selector. Now I'm about 70% to a rank 3 Mister fantastic.
