    I’m pretty salty about the fact that there’s an Abyss nexus in the rewards. That crystal is meant to be a reward for completing the most grueling content in the game (not most difficult, so don’t get on me about that) but now they’re just letting people buy it.
    Same with six star Weapon X. Don’t get me wrong, I was wanting him to be in the GGCs because I love him and want more people to have access to him but having be able to be outright bought rubs me the wrong way.
    Don’t even get me started on the fact that there’s a generic r4 gem before there was ever a class based crystal one.

    The rank up rewards are better than summoner showdown

    I doubt any f2p player has a r4 champ and some people will have 3 of them by the time this event ends. .

    3 of them is achievable in just a few hours, if not less.
    I wouldn't doubt some people would have 20 or more of them at the end of the event
    20 is a bit too much lol but I get your point. They are selling rewards that cannot be consistenly obtained from any part of the game. That is the point. And they can get as much as their bank acct allows.
    Judging by what we've been seeing in the last couple of years, the average top spender would have more than enough for at least 5000 of these crystals.
    Now how much r4's can be achievable there? I have no idea, but probably a good couple of them
    Tell you what, if they pulled approximately the same rate of T4 materials that I did out of 50 crystals, instead did it with 5000 crystals they would be able to make five R4s with a bunch of T3a leftover.

    It’s a shame that this kind of thing happens, but if we compare this to a more traditional hobby/sport, such as say running; what is the price of entry to the competitive leagues?

    What about something more fun, like downhill skiing? How f2p is that? Ok what about… chess?

    I want to see Brian grant succeed, but any popular recreation has a price of entry.

    The difference with mcoc is this game also has a built in kill switch, with the chase from 4* to 5* to… 7*s. Will we ever get to 40*s? I suppose I hope so…

    Why is there an abyss nexus in the rewards? That's insulting and takes away one of the main things abyss had.

    Also weapon X? I know he was just an extra for legend runs but still, putting him in the crystal and rank rewards is a bit scummy and devalues having him a significant amount.

    The rest I don't care about honestly. The higher rewards they give out in the milestones/crystals, the more they are forced to give f2p players in the future to keep the "economy" in balance. I expect a large power creep in rewards just like what happened earlier this year.

    I am worried though as to how quick we will be getting r5 6*. I hope they hold off on those for at least another year.

    I like BG a lot, but I honestly don’t get what the big deal is. There really aren’t that many people that will get R4 materials in their rank rewards (300 people from solo and 300 people from alliance). Being in a Top 20 alliance means you’re really only part of the top 600 players. Let the top 5 Alliances “Whale Out” to keep the game funded and just try to compete with everybody else.

    Edit: Bad math.

    30 ally's is 900 players.... but to put it in context my alt account (which is new) just placed 26 thousand something in AQ... meaning there are over a million active players in the game currently (some I assume are multiple accounts of course)

    The weapon x makes sense because they no longer will be doing act legends runs and kang and thanos who were previously acquired the same way have always been in the crystals too. The abyss crystal is an odd choice tho.

    Watch the video below and I'm curious of people's thoughts...

    he's basically saying they went too far this time

    Not sure how familiar you are with BG.. but this is the 3rd time he's suggested he'd quit the game.. first time was with the cosmic boost for 7.1.. next was the pre fights with odin when you could apply them from more than one odin.. i'm sure there will be something later on that he doesn't like and once again insinuates he's thinking to quit the game..

    Don't worry.. he's not going anywhere..
    Yup, he is not quitting. Between YouTube and the donations from his stream, he make a decent living.

    I don't know what to think about this.

    This event has always brought out the whales, so... uh...

    An alternate thought. What does one of these whale accounts do once gifting is past? They can potentially get a rank 4 or three out of the gifting crystals, then get a bit more from the event. Then what? Everything else in the game is wildly less remunerative. Is it even fun to be the most stacked account in the game?

    there was one shady guy (i forget his name) who made youtube vids of him spending 10's of thousands on events like this.... he said he would save them year round and pop them slowly so he never overflowed materials.

    kabam should appreciate the time spenders to this game. bg is a great example. guy is literally streaming every piece of arena he does. he helps community. he shows the enjoyment to the people. as a f2p. he’s by far one of the best voices of the community. sure i had some disagreements with him but that never went to disrespect him. a lot of players owe him their progression. so no need to be disrespectful here.

    if kabam keeps doing this they won’t have players playing the game. only 1% of spenders are gonna do things. it’s just not cool that they completely ignored non spenders here. but hey we’re spending our time to this game and if we’re just ignorable assets just say it to our faces.

    as for me i traded some ggcs with alliance and looking to have fun. don’t expect to be on top even tho i’m in high level endgame player. but i really hear what BG says here and he has my full support.

    just sad.

    Not sure how familiar you are with BG.. but this is the 3rd time he's suggested he'd quit the game.. first time was with the cosmic boost for act 6.. i think 6.3.... next was the pre fights with odin when you could apply them from more than one odin.. i'm sure there will be something later on that he doesn't like and once again insinuates he's thinking to quit the game..

    The cosmic boost and Odin prefights were changed though?

    They were.. I was just pointing out to the OP that this isn't the first time he's suggested leaving the game..

    I absolutely get BG’s point. It must be a sucker punch every year to see the gap widening in prestige and overall PI.

    I would say there’s lots of content he hasn’t completed yet that could bridge a small part of this gap. KT1 has made similar point. It’s impossible to stay competitive at the very top of the game unless you are dropping thousands of £££ on this event. As someone who is Thronebreaker but not good enough to play competitively at the top, if I won the lottery and money was no object, I drop mad stacks to get into the top 30. Mad stack bro!

    Personally I don’t think it’s good for the game economy. I think when you look at the recent buff to SA rewards only adds 250x 6* shards for the top milestone but you can buy out resources to take multiple champs to rank 4 I do think Kabam takes us for fools when it comes to rewards. We need to start seeing a very quick trickle down of R4 resources that we can earn through playing the game.
