What's your opinion about this Summoner Vote?

What's your opinion about this Summoner Vote? Spider-Punk will (most likely) win from what it seems. A lot of people are saying that it's rigged.

My take:
1) A lot of people love Spider-Man in general. I don't mean in MCOC but in general.
2) A lot of people playing this game have absolutely no clue who are the champs in this vote and vote randomly.

I spent 2 hours doing some basic research about all the champs (including those already eliminated). I never heard about any champs in this voting. I watched every Movie/Show in the MCU but I never read a Marvel Comic.

    I honostly do not care about any of the picks. I might know 2 of the original 8. But have zero connection to them. So I just vote on the champ I know is the fav of my favorite mcoc youtuber.

    " a lot of people saying it is rigged". Taking a leaf out of a divisive politician's handbook, are we?

    Well I vote for the Character I think I might like to play.
    After that it's out of my hands. If more people want a different Character I accept that because eventually I will get the new Character and by then the good players will have worked out it's pluses and minuses for dummies like me.

    Pretty sure Zemo was in a vote and lost and now he is in the game.
    Omega sentinel finished 2nd and eventually ended up in the game. Agatha will show up likely when her Disney plus show does.
    If more people want a Spiderman then a Spiderman it will be.

    Dud.

    I think most people don’t care. They probably just tap something to clear the window. Notice how ALL of the champs not visible in the window did not make it to the next round via in-game voting (Spider Punk added via twitter).

    I think Bullseye is the favorite. Yet, it’s odd that Bullseye was added to the vote and Beta Ray Bill, who beat out Bullseye last year, wasn’t added.

    After all this, we may end up with Spider Punk solely because of meme status and not because the majority actually want the champ.

    I voted Spider Punk because that's who I want, not because of any other reason. I understand being disappointed when out favorite isn't chosen, but people have a mind of their own.

    I believe the reason Bullseye is the only character returning from a past vote is that he won an “underdog” vote, or something along those lines. From what I remember I think there was a vote that took place on Twitter (I think) which was entirely composed of characters that had lost (cant remember who exactly) in the previous votes. The winner of that vote would go on to be in the current Summoner’s Choice vote. I also think there was a hint that any characters who were not in the underdog vote may already have plans to be added (for example, Zemo).

    The underdog vote was specifically for champions who had lost in the first round of their years. That’s why Beta Ray Bill wasn’t included, he made it out of the first round.

    Does this actually make sense though? Is the goal not to find the champion the general player base wants? Is Kabam trying to up social media engagement rates or something?

    Basically yes. They have hundred of suggestions on the forums for champs and no telling how many requested champs elsewhere.

    Research the characters before voting would be ideal, because a lot of the characters on the pull are insanely powerful, but people who doesn’t read the comics don’t a f about because the don’t know. But hoping or demanding it from the community is too much, not only Marvel Comic fans play the game, so…
    I’m still hoping they add Morgan, and since the picture they put up for Agatha was a illustration, it looks like they’re planning on putting her anyway, so

    I wish they just added the top 4 all together but that would be very hard to do
  • Crine60Crine60 Posts: 1,176 ★★★★
    I would find it more useful and more engaging if there was some info on potential abilities Kabam would implement along with the names and basic description. I can see how that wouldn't be something they can do though because then they would never hear the end of it if people voted based on an ability they decided not to put in.
  • says he's watched every Marvel show and movie but doesn't know Bullseye.

    Who was in Daredevil season 3.

    what

    the

    Fudge?

    Also doesn't know Echo.

    Who was in Hawkeye AND is getting her own series.

    WHAT

    THE

    FUDGE?!?!

    Not to mention Deathlok was in Agents of SHIELD....


    mother hubbard!

    White tiger and spiderpunk have appearances in animated shows/movies so to my knowledge only 3 out of 8 didnt appear in any shows/movies but hey he did some basic research and watched ALL.

    From stats spiderpunk actually had the least votes in previous rounds (so yes obviously can still rack up from ppl voting him after their favorite were eliminated etc), won the twitter wildcard vote by coming 4th since the 3 above him won already by the ingame vote and thats said as well he didnt come 4th in the ingame voting (kabam miike said he came in very close 5th in a different thread).

    Deathlok was my #1 preference, and he didn’t make it out of the first round. Sunfire was another champ I liked, as well as Marrow. Neither advanced.

    The result for me is what amounts to an “anyone but Spider-Punk” vote across main and alt and disinterested ally mates who play but haven’t really paid attention to the voting. I’ve thrown my votes and any I can coax behind Bullseye because it’s way past time to put him in the game, there’s a chance to improve DD vis synergy and his abilities and mechanics could be very interesting.

    Even so—I’m not sure this is what the team intended by creating a Community Choice, but it is what it is.

    Let me answer your question with a question. Why not just have a poll? Why force players to go through hoops to acquire tickets in the game to vote on the champs they want?
    That’s fine too.

    It should be a fair vote in whatever way they choose to deliver it.

    It’s not a fair vote if you have caveats and fabricated situations that alters the candidates and results.

    I’m not a fan of a “vote” that involves hoops to jump through to get extra votes with different hoops to save one candidate from losing fairly in another medium of voting.

    I only really cared about getting Deathlok or White Tiger, but cared more about White Tiger, so have voted for no one but her.

    First year, I wanted Herc, Dazzler and Blue Marvel. Second I wanted Armor, Dani, Crystal and both times I split votes. Not this year.

    The reason there are hoops to jump through is so that the more people play the game, the more votes they get: i e. the people most invested in the game get to choose the champion.

    Or to put that another way: if you want to choose the champion, you have to play the game.

    If every player got just one vote regardless of how much they played, that would be 'fair', but it wouldn't actually encourage anyone to play the game. Which is ultimately the point 🙂
