The Vibranium Grind is REAL (and Diamond)

DeaconDeacon Posts: 4,138 ★★★★★
So assuming the victory token remains at 1 from Diamond 4 to Vibranium 1 ... that's a LOT of victories in a row now to reach the circuit. Smart move Kabam but I do NOT like it lol

Not to mention, there are no elder's marks in Vibranium at all now.

    Do you genuinely believe it was a smart move? I believe it'll put more people off pushing, unless that's their intent

    When you consider seeding and what that will mean, it was a smart move to make it a grind for sure. What I don't like is if they leave it to 1 victory token from D4 to V1. That's insane.

    I probably won't make it to GC this time. 3 back to back 5 wins in a row could be too much. Requires good investment in victory sheilds. I have made it to GC in last 4 seasons, but this by just the looks of it looks tough. I guess it's for this season only due to Summoner Clash.

    Nope, moving forward these new 3 added ranks are permanent.

    They don't want everybody in gc they only want the best of the best there

    Just to point out - they may not want everyone in GC but when the implemented the 2:1 medals for the majority of the ranks, it was to increase the amount of people in GC.

    This is going back to the old way which caused me get objectives and ignore the node. Losses are too penalizing when often your win or loss happens as soon as you see who you are matched against.

    Usually finish above Arcane and I think you're right. It will be much harder from NEXT season. The win rate to get into GC is going to stall a lot of players until the smaller accounts make it through to the upper tiers.

    Vibranium BS is real. Way too much of a hassle.

    Coming from a player that hasn’t ever made GC and currently in V2. What a waste of time

    How is it a waste of time when you have gotten rewards along the way? Its not an quest that wouldn’t give you rewards unless you finish it!

    Maybe let this play out and see the actual consequences after BG ends. If this doesn’t solve the issues, Kabam can adjust.

    Quite telling that at this stage of the season (last I checked) mysterium wasn't even full up yet.

    3 vibraniums are excessive, seeding won't speed up victory track and will just bunch the best people together slowing it down even more. It's almost as though they just wanted to incentivise victory shields...
