    Tier 1 for tier 2 alpha would have been good also.

    This trade in is awful. Who hoards that much for a 6* awakening gem? And they limit the paywall to get there. A 6* gem is the prize for act 6 exploration. They devalue content with BS like this. Bc of rng I’m 1-2 away from each class.

    People complain about everything lol. The only bad deal is that 5 generic 5*AG for 1 6* AG. But I was still able to get three 5* AG for free, can’t complain about that. Plus then CC trade is great, free gold crystal upgrade, etc. it’s a good event, don’t complain just because you can’t get an easy 6* AG

    Feel like I’m one of the lucky ones who this worked out for. Started with a tech and skill 6* AG, traded them both in to try and get a cosmic.

    Think I did 4 trades overall and I finished with skill and cosmic AG’s. Finally managed to awaken my Herc

    This trade in store is awful. So awful in fact that I am not even mad. The one for one class catalysts and the potions are amazing deals, I’ll give Kabam that, but the rest is just garbage.

    Let’s take the 6* awakening gem for starters. It costs 5 5* generic awakening gems to get. For any player that has not explored all content and whom five stars are still viable, this makes no sense to invest in even if they happen to have all the gems. And what does Kabam value each 5* generic at…3 class. That is 15 class 5* awakening gems for ONE six star. I was hoping to trade in 1 for 1 class to generic or maybe 2 for 1, and 2 generic 5* for a 6*. I have never awakened a single 6* champion. I was hoping that this was the day that I could do that without spending money, but no.

    What is everyone’s thoughts on this?

    The store is primarily there to allow people to trade in stuff they don't really need for stuff they do need. It is not there for people to trade in lots of things they do need for one thing that is moderately more pretty. For any player for whom 5* AG gems are still valuable, Kabam doesn't want you trading them in for 6* awakening gems.

    In other words, the stores are supposed to assist people with their progression, not incentivize leapfrogging progression.

    I haven't quite worked through the math on this yet, but in order to get a 6* gem just from having backstock of lesser gems, I don't think it would be possible. You would have had to have so much in overflow, which no one would. I think they need to re-figure their math on this.

    There is a bottle neck trading 4* generic for 5* gems. Seeing as you can only get five 5*gems from 4* generic and it takes 3 class to get one generic 5*, if you are extremely lucky at most you can get only 1 generic 5*.

    This had to be yet another disappointing trade in store.

    I have never really the trade in store because I feel like they just do things and value them at random vs actually thinking about it.

    I was fine with trading do ag for the 3* and 4*, but…..3 for a generic 5* is where I lose my mind. The thing is i still value 5* ag pretty highly so it just seems all so scrambled.

    After that the signature stones are even worse in my eyes.

    I was holding out some excitement for this month…but damn I gotta learn to keep my expectations low lol

    It’s cool. But unfortunately some people are gonna come up just short. One of my accounts has used gems that were expiring over the last 2 years simply because they were expiring…. And that account is 1 gem short, of course, so that’s kinda lame.
    But happy for those that get their gem and my other accounts.

    I have 1.5k t3 crystals that I don't use. How is kabam helping with that?
    It sounds like you don't need any help with saving T3 crystals.

    Scanning through this thread it seems like the majority “trading” in a 6* class gem are just getting the same gem back. This can’t be the way it is intended to work. I pulled a mystic 6* gem from the 5* AG trade. Tried to trade it for a chance at mutant and got the mystic gem back, Another guy in the alliance did the same with tech.

    Trade in store got me a 6* tech AG for my R1 unawakened Guardian who now is R3 sig 105.

    Yes, it's expensive but worth it if you are lucky to get an AG for your desired champion.

    They trade in value is just a bit over priced. The reason we have so many to trade in is because they usually end up collecting dust.
