Honestly
Not to be rude but I don't get the whole point of this. There are no fights on either paths so why we couldn't just go straight to the boss?

    I was just about to create a post about this. What a bunch of hot garbage - 30 energy for nothing. I've been mad at that last 3 after the boss the past few times, but this is ridiculous.


    Those energy moves would have been in between the champions either way. They’ve just been moved to the end, you haven’t been cheated of anything don’t worry.
    We're on a 9 day record breaking heatwave out here. "Saving energy" is required by the State and it's on my mind 24/7 ;)

    It just feels cheap to do all those moves and burn the energy for the sake of making it the same cost around a map picture. I had 21 full energy in overflow going into this so I don't need it, but the design still feels like waste... Even though it's the same energy cost (yes, I know).

    It compliments the story. You’re not wasting energy because it’s the same amount of energy as it always is. Just a different layout
    Exact energy or not this is still clownery

    It's the EXACT same energy cost as last month and the month before and the month before that. They ALWAYS use the same amount of energy.
    But what's the point of this?

    An aesthetically pleasing map design. Like a map shaped like a spider, the avengers logo, or the X-men logo. They do these things fairly often.

    What is the point of having 9 empty nodes before the boss and 1 empty one after? So we use almost half an energy refill to go around a point less circle. Why are you having us waste resources like this? @Kabam Miike

    If you’d rather it wasn’t like this then you’ll just have to use the same amount of energy to get between the fights. Notice how all the champions are very close together on the paths.

    If that’s what you’d rather then that’s your right, but as you know it’ll be the exact same amount of energy total it’s an odd request.

    Bro you guys are mad because you do not have energy in the overflow Like I do

    Which is honestly bad design
    Like do you really need to see your avatar go in a circle around the map like it's useless and makes you feel like your energy is being wasted

    I would much rather pay the energy cost upfront for the mission tbh

    I would love to see a mission where you get a graphic novel style cutscene then go for first fight
    Then get another one and then next fight

    Making every fight have it's own cutscene or like the villain says a one liner or something

    It would do more to liven up the stale mission layout and certainly better than infight call outs

    It's not about being cheated and the fact that they would have been spread out differently does not change the fact that it's bad design
    Acts 5 and 6 had some terrible designs as well

    It looks terrible and feels wasteful, not to mention making you run almost the exact same path twice to cover like 1 dotted line
    Which happens in act 6 several times iirc


    It's the same thing when people would rather pay 15£ with free shipping than pay 10£ and 5£ for the exact same good

    And nothing about a circle says wrestling lol

    agree..but wrong side they watching..lol

    So i don't think this post and others on the forum right now are to address this specific circle but to address how wasteful the design feels in terms of energy

    I’m pretty sure wrestling matches take place… in a ring lol

    Looks are subjective, I like it and I thought it was a fun design choice. I’m not saying you have to like the layout, but to complain it’s wasteful is just categorically wrong.

    I don’t know much about the character of Titania, but my point is that the ring and the number 1 is clearly a thematic choice that adds 0 to your total energy cost.

    If someone complained that they had to pay £10 and £5 shipping rather than £15 straight up I’d tell them they were complaining about nothing as well. It’s the same total cost.

    It’s the same total energy and you don’t repeat any fights over and over. The issue here is that people have an emotional reaction and let that inform their opinion. “Arghh there’s a waste of energy at the end that they didn’t need to put in”. Except… there’s a “waste” of energy in every quest ever, because Kabam have a quota of how many energy the quest will cost. 10 random nodes put into paths will be 30 extra energy whether it’s at the end or dotted around.

    If they hadn’t done this, you wouldn’t save any energy at all. You’d just have a business as normal quest, which the designers clearly didn’t want to do. This is exactly the same as making an X shaped quest for an Xmen champion. So instead of making your opinion based on emotion, just think about and and think about whether it really matters, or if you’re just complaining about nothing
