**RESOLVED ISSUE WITH SIDE QUEST KEYS**
The game team has resolved this issue. Keys will be distributed via in-game messages and the quest timer will be extended.
More information and timeline here.
*This includes currently unclaimable keys as well*
**WINTER OF WOE - BONUS OBJECTIVE POINT**
As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

There is a new set of modders in bg

I believe there’s a new form of modding in the game right now. The modders don’t just blow your opponents with one hit. They speed up the time allocated to ban champions, to pick attackers and defenders, to pick a pre fight ability. I have clips to back up this. I believe this to be a mod and it was recently introduced in this new bg season
I have two clips posted on my twitter account

Notice in the first clip I the fight started out with hercules vs mojo and then sunspot got picked for me as a defender which is something I would never do

In the second clip, absorbing man gets picked for me as an attacker and I don’t even get to activate the pre fight as the time raced past me

    it doesn't seems to be a new mod but kind of an exploit as there is a pattern here. waiting last second prob to lock in the champ could make the other guy pick faster ? idk... as i said it looks like more of an exploit of a bug than a mod thing as the clip 2 fight u had 7 seconds to pick and not 1

    How then was he able to stop the pre fight? Kabam gives 11 seconds to pick a pre fight ability and it skipped that. This is 2 different set of fights as well.

    You're likely just not synced with the server. This happens when your signal isn't strong or sipped and you lose connection with the server. We've seen this happen over the seasons. I had a match were I was still banning the opponents champs and then my first pick was made for me after.

    Also, you can't accuse people of cheating on the forums. You can ask about the matches whether they are suspect or not but you must block out their names as well.

    "Steals" their time is I think a more accurate way to look at it. I've had this also, not even necessarily from them picking, but a screen load takes longer than expected and you get time docked. So instead of 10 seconds to pick you have 3 or auto drafted. I'm not speculating yet that this is a tactic... more an unfortunate side-effect.

    Had this in fights also, which I think is way more common. The fight takes ages to load, and you lose the time it took to load beyond what Kabam gives an allowance.

    I’m seriously hoping this is a bug and it is fixable, because if mods are capable of controlling time, then it might be time to pack up bgs
