This is meaningful for grinders who put real effort in 3-day grinding work. Thanks for the action taken.

    Great work! So proud of you kabam! This also means that I can now compete with safety in mind!

    This is really good news. Whilst I'm not likely to be affected by this given my roster, it's good for the overall health of the game. Good stuff :)

    Yeah this is great. I have been affected more than once so really happy about this. Great work kabam. 👍

    It's a fantastic and much welcomed decision.

    1700+ rounds from number 2 and 1400 from number 1.

    Even at 2 minutes for each set of 3 fights plus reselection, that is 56.6 hours unbroken play. Just tried the first 4 fights (running full suicides, using 4/40s) and it took 7 mins 41 seconds.

    These bots aren't using 4/40s or suicides. So they aren't doing it that fast.

    @Kabam Miike it really is a brilliant effort from kabam to try and cut down on the cheating, but they seem to be unstoppable!!

    That's great news!

    And it'll be even better news if that means I finally got a 6* doom! 😂

    But regardless, I feel like not only bot accounts should be permanently banned, but any associated IP addresses from other accounts as well.

    lol..you didn't get him the first time..the first Doom arena numbers were significantly low that I hated myself for not going for him. I didn't even try for the second arena, because I knew the numbers would be way higher after folks saw the first scores.

    I’m fascinated by the sheer number of accounts of ill intent that just got removed from the gifting event. So much botter frustration this weekend!!!

    I anticipated the same, but missed the cutoff by about 2m. My first time ever trying for a feature champ and my thumbs are still sore.

    @Kabam Miike This is great news! Will these upcoming adjustments include the initial Shang-Chi arena held back in mid-May? If I’m not mistaken, that was the first official 6-star arena and the bots were running rampant. Thanks!

    I think this is the best thing that kabam has done all year!

    I agree , it's crazy that merc's think that they don't belong in the same boat as botters.

    I am very please with this action by Kabam. Us arena grinders are arguably the most dedicated to the game. I appreciate Kabam finally showing us some love and providing us a sense of gratitude by rewarding champs lost to cheating.
