Summoners, the Necrosword Crystals (the crystals in the Knull Cavalier Preview Bundle) currently have a higher than intended drop rate of 6-Star Champions.

We will be leaving the crystals as is for the time being, but will be correcting the drop rates before Knull receives his official release on October 28th. To ensure that this does not affect anybody that purchased this preview bundle, we will be auto-opening these crystals before that date, but this means you will not see what you received. To avoid any confusion, please open your crystals yourself ASAP.

So what’s people’s ’enthusiasm’ of the game right now?

    There needs to be a middle option between the same and waning. I’m not quitting or anything, just dissatisfied with the pacing of permanent content. We’re still 2-3 months from the next story chapter and likely 2 months from a variant and the reworks have been reduced and they’re still bad. Are we just doing EQ and side quests until then?

    No side event this month has been great.

    The BG management tools added this year are a huge QoL improvement. Further refinements to that would be welcome.

    For instance, although many alliances are happy to do 5 day AQ weeks, we’d be happy to do 4 day weeks, but that kind of stuff is hard to communicate across to the bottom half of our alliance, and gets lost in translation. Eg. If we state in main chat we are taking a week off AQ there are always some who can’t read and then quit when that week off comes, effectively giving officers more work later on.

    In all, The best players in our alliance are tired and bored with AQ and do it mainly out of loyalty to alliance mates and also for the rewards. That slowly breeds resentment, which I’m sure kabam is aware of.

    So more options to customise/set/restrict AQ for officers in ways that are easy for others to understand would be helpful in reducing that day in day out grind.

    Only really excited about the buffs but now only 2 a month. This month has been a drag with no side event. Just really bored. SOP was cool, got all point but have no motivation for this final one. Its just way to much and would have to spend ridiculous amount of units. No a great Grandmaster fighter since I have only fought him once and it was costly. I feel it would just go the same and pretty damn rough to get to him.

    Still excited about the game and it’s future. I had a blast with SoP and am looking forward to 7.3, a new variant and new game modes (solo competitive). I think I’ve been lucky that the bugs have not affected me as much as it has others, but I understand the frustration with it.

    What’s killing me right now is literally everything they release has a bug attached or needs to be changed in some way. Content…new champs…buffed champs…crystal drop rates…they just can’t get any of it right the first time.

    Plus the communication from Kabam is still just very sub-par imo. Seems like we have to BEG for updates on everything

    If you know who is BrutalDLX, the original Legend of this game, here's his comment to your question. You can start from 1:35.

    But he is still playing and opening cavs to collect every single champ.
    I think you don’t quite understand what “retirement” means for those competing in top-tier alliance.

    I LOVE this game and have put too much effort into it to put it down now but with that said I agree with a lot of what everyone else has said here.

    The grind is repetitive. I usually save up some units for the beginning of every month to just crush EQ ASAP so I can have the rest of the month to take it easy

    AQ is monotonous but understand you almost NEED to do it to advance in this game and get a lot of resources to rank up.

    AW is terrible. Never been a high tier alliance war player but can’t stand how stressful it makes things. It ties up a ton of characters and the rewards for the effort is dismal.

    New champions - they seem almost impossible to get. Whenever I see someone new enter the game, I know it’s going to be at least 6 months for most champs to filter into my account that’s at least as high as a 5 star. I just don’t understand why the arena milestones can’t be extended so that a reasonable arena grinder would have a chance. Obviously bots would need to be addressed but I feel this would drive enthusiasm up on new champs. The people who buy chances at champs through crystals are always going to do that so I don’t see any harm in allowing more to go to players through arena.

    New content- it’s just too slow. Summer of pain was great but the bugs made that a little less enjoyable. It would be great if the focus could be put on pumping out act content and variants as I have found the recent releases to be some of the best content released in the past few years. I feel like the summoner showdown was a huge miss. With the bugs in the game, I feel like this should have been put on the back burner until it was all fixed especially considering it seems to be geared towards such a small player group.

    Simplifying the game - stop making side quests so complex that guides need to be created every month just so you don’t do something stupid and miss out on rewards. I love it when they are no energy and you can clear it at your own pace vs. having to go in every day or start a new chapter every week.

    Well said mate. You are IMO 100% spot on. Thanks for taking the time to express your point of view here.

    This is like the first month that I won’t even finish 100% Uncollected and I’m an Thronebreaker player.
    (And I just can’t be bother with Cav difficulty)

    I like the concept of monthly EQ. I appreciate that Kabam take the time to create a storyline for each monthly EQ. But it’s IMO a drag every month. There are just too many paths to complete the EQ. 7 paths for stage 3.2 IMO is just overkill.
    I think the number of paths in EQ needs to be drastically reduced. Remember stage 3.2 for example has 7 paths and this is the same for all lvl’s of difficulty.
    Sure I can play Normal, Heroic and most of Master on auto fight, but I think if you 100% complete uncollected for example, then the lvls below should also credit as ‘done.’
    The problem is time is valuable and the current amount of time the game requires again IMO isn’t worth it.

    Due to the current non-side quest (which I actually like) I have done no more than what is required to meet to side quest objectives. Again this will be the first time but definitely not the last time that I won’t even bother finishing 100% uncollected or cavalier difficulty. The time required to do so is just such a grind I’m now not interested.

    I agree. Monthly EQ has too many paths. Since Cavalier difficulty dropped I haven’t touched anything below Uncollected because it’s too time and energy consuming. Some months I don’t even 100% uncollected because it’s altogether too much.

    I’m sick of the bugs, lag, game crashing parry and dex issues. Also this new arena which makes no sense like what was going through kabam mind to call that a celebration arena

    Wow

    So 2 in 3 respondents think the game is waning…
    (269 out of 400 people)

    That’s not a healthy outlook.
