**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.

**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

What Champion Pull changed the game for you?

PantherusNZPantherusNZ Posts: 1,638 ★★★★
We can get significant pulls at any time, but sometimes you get a pull at a certain tier level at a certain time in your game that it completely changes things for you.

Who was the pull, and what did they enable you to do that you couldn't before?

Mine was Hyperion - I was relying almost exclusively on 4* champs still and lamenting a poor 5* roster, to the point where I was actively thinking if I pulled a 5* Captain Marvel (not the movie variant, this was before she entered the contest) I'd use my Cosmic AG on her and rank her up! Then I pulled Hyperion as a 5*. Awakened, Ranked straight to R4, and I could finally to Realm of Legends and got carried through much of Act 5.

    Looking time ago, it was 5* AA, used him everywhere to clear content and even today he's championing it in BG.

    More recently about a year ago, it was 6* Shang chi because I was getting tired of bad pulls and then I pulled him and stuck to the game.

    5* Void, a l-o-o-o-n-n-g time ago. his synergy with KM / WS made them a wrecking crew back in the day, and finally gave me a reliable AW attack team.

    He was my first 5* r4. I ranked him unawakened and he still SLAYEDS. that dude anchored my roster through a ton of early content and monthly EQ. He was probably my MVP for 2019.

    Omega red. Taking him to max sig 5*, 3 years ago, changed the game completely.

    Even wrote about it at the time at the bottom of this thread:

    https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/164040/progression-without-twitch-skills-or-unit-man#latest

    (Omega red has now also been my third R4 6* mutant as well; he's still immense!!)

    Glad you finally took Omega to r4, mate - even if Cable+Apoc is your go-to more often!

    For me, it would have been 5* Dr Doom. Picked him up on the road to Cavalier and boy, did he make an impression: https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/201948/didnt-believe-the-hype#latest

    Even now my 5/65 Doom does more for me than most of my r3/r4 champions.

    My recent guilty pleasure was taking cable to R4 😁

    You'll know well, but that 5/65 omega carried me for over two years! Him plus corvus; terrible twosome.

    Like the Doom story and the south park reference 😉 can't believe you did that with 3/45 5* too - that's making an impression!

    4* SW.
    5* SL
    5* Blade
    5* Corvus
    6* Hercules

    All of these made a huge difference for me at different points in the game. Shout out to 4* Mags, Black Bolt, and Cyclops for my no damage block team lol

    Domino. I actually quit the game when you hit maestro because it was too hard for me. I came back several years later, just happened to be in the gift event, and got a six-star Domino's, and I was able to take me all the way up through uncollected. Amazing how much a six star changed the game, and I've been playing ever since again.

    I pulled doom as my 4th 5* like the week he was added to the generic crystal. That was three years ago, and it pushed me forward in a huge way

    5* CGR really changed the game for me for a while. Which is funny cause now I have him as 5* and 6* and I rarely ever use him. He's still great though.

    Honestly, recently, Scorpion has surprised me. I never had any luck with high ranking Science pulls and then I got him as a 6* and it just changed how I played a lot of the late stage game.

    4* omega red was a game changer which helped me get UC
    5* AA was amazing and really helped me push cav
    then 5* nick and my second 6* torch really changed the game and led to me beating act 6

    A while ago, it was a 5 star doom that I got after opening a 5 star crystal on the day he came out in the basics. When I got him, I didnt know how good he was until I saw a couple videos and ever since then hes been amazing and just recently I got a 6 star doom.

    Corvus was my first 4* and got me through a lot of content. My first good 5* was Hyperion and amazingly I had an AG (which was rare for me and for the game at the time) so he got me through a ton of content as well.

    The 6* that made the biggest difference for me was finally pulling Nick Fury, who had been my white whale for the full year I had been playing. Didn’t have him as a 4 or 5*. I had really bad luck with 6*s for my first 3/4 of a year of pulling them, but right around my year anniversary with the game I pulled NF and - even though I couldn’t awaken him for another 5 months - it changed the trajectory of my account. All of the sudden I started finally pulling good 6*s after that.

    Ghost as a 5 star. This was around the time I also thought synergies of any kind were a waste of time. But realized Ghost with trinity was an absolute cheat code. Explored act 5 and carried to act 7.
