a punch to FTP players face

this new battlepass ruined summoner appreciations, it used to be free and everyone could get cool stuff whether u were a contender or thronbreaker. but now it's all behind a paywall access that most player base wouldnt have it. a free 7* morbius and more for just paying and FTP wouldnt get much? this's hella discouraging....

    a free 7* morbius and more for just paying.

    Aaah yes, the famous free for paying!!

    In all seriousness this is still a lot of nice free stuff for ftp players. And a tremendous deal for medium spenders, I personally think this is one of the best events Kabam has put out for ftp and spenders alike in a while

    agreed..$15 a month for a guaranteed 7* is very solid especially if you are someone buying $5 daily paragon/tb/cav crystals

    I agree that the gold path looks good. But good is not juicy, which the summoner appreciation used to be.

    Here’s the problem with this whole FTP vs PTP perspective that most FTP players have. They’re looking at the value of what they’re not getting instead of the value of what they are getting. Assuming the 3 months of this are identical, this is far and away the best summoner “appreciation” type of event to date. If you’ve been around for all of them you would know that. But instead of celebrating what FTP players are able to get, you’re actively devaluing it because you’re comparing it to what you do want to pay for, and that’s not fair.

    The first ever summoner appreciation calendar had what, 6k 6* shards and maybe a thousand units? Now this new one has more crystals, almost 1,200 units (plus a few fabulous crystals for more units), 3 fully formed 6* crystals and more stuff on top of all that. But sure, complain that it used to be better.

    Compare what is free today to what was free yesterday instead of devaluing what you can get because you can’t or don’t want to spend money on something better.

    The first ever summoner appreciation calendar also happened in 2018 (or 2019? I don't remember). Rewards from then are not equal to rewards now. In my opinion those free 6k 6 star shards equate to 5k 7 star shards or something in the current game economy.

    Again - not bashing the event because we get a lot of free stuff which is very good. But it used to be better, same as the compensation we used to get back then for game outages and server issues. Mcoc just isnt the same anymore but we have known this for a long time. Now we just have to accept it.

    You are making the mistake of thinking this is the summoner appreciation event. It is not, is just another P2W event that ended up replacing that one.

    But I do agree this is just yet another stupid decision by Kabam, but not that they haven't been doing so multiple times every month by now

    Cry harder.
    Truly a productive apporach from a fellow mcoc player

    It always had a paid version actually, and you're still getting rewards for "Free", if you're expecting to get the premium rewards for free as well then I'd say welcome to life

    All I will say is that "Juicy" does not describe the "Gold" path. Pathetic seems a better description. This was supposed to be a "skill" based game, but there is no skill required, just a credit card.
    Kabam has made it clear they could care less about the balance of the game or ftp players.
    First we spent years watching mercs and bots take rank rewards from away from us in events and arenas and now we get to watch as spenders buy thier way so far out in front that no matter what level of skill a frp player has, they will never get close to the top, not without a whale alliance to carry them.
    But I for one saw this coming 3 years ago. Warned this was gonna be how this ended up, and here we are.

    Didn't exactly have to pierce the veil of space and time to foretell that one.

    Why would you think it would be otherwise? Do you spend all day shaking your fist and being salty at the disparity of opportunities and outcomes between people willing and able to pay for them and those that aren't?

    Im gonna go out on a limb here and guess yes, he does exactly that.
