**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.

    This game as becoming frustrating to play.
    Basically if you have blade you can deal with the majority of things the game trow at you, if you get like falcons and she hulks, or the ones that need a dup to be playable, you just get stuck and cant do anything.
    Kabam really need to balance the odds and the champs on the game

    I don’t have Blade and have done everything, so he isn’t that necessary.

    Even with SW, could still get things done, she just made it a hell of a lot easier.

    Soon another champ will come and out-do Blade too.

    I have to agree with this. He's good, no doubt about it, but he's not the same as SW pre12.0. I think people forget that they have been dealing with things before he came about. Personally I haven't gotten caught up in the hype. Eventually they'll have counters for him and the new "Next Best Thing" will come along. I think there has been a bit too much hype about him, and when something new comes along, inevitably people will be up in arms over their Blade. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to burst anyone's bubble. I'm just being realistic. Things change.

    True story! Amen!

    It’s like we see champs coming around now who are immune to cold snap and icemans powers.

    Eventually there will be counters to Blade, will be interested to see how it’s done though as they can’t really be villains lol.

    There'll never be a champ that even comes close to pre patch 12.0 scarlet witch, she was the be all and end all that had no weakness. Blade on the other hand especially out of the holy trinity will run into road blocks. Give it time and we'll get more counters to him aswell as champs that make him look average, ebbs and flows

    Everyone knows Blade is way too good so no need to keep talking about the truth.

    Try to fight bishop, colossus, iceman, nebula with blade. Then compare again.

    oh look, another "nerf blade" thread

    Every game has one or two champions that's easier to use than others because you don't have a champion I don't think it calls for a nerf, try to make use of what you have, Blade is good I have him and unless you have ghost rider and spidey he's not too OP, I find my self using AA and Iceman more, I love SW she's my and Malik they're my MVP.

    Nowhere near sw pre12.0 stop comparing blade to pre 12.0 sw. All this tells me is you didn’t play the game before 12.0 cause if you did you would not be making this comparison. Stay salty my friend

    Try bringing a 3* Blade with Spark GR and clearing Act 4. You'll see.

    Hey quick question for those who think blade is the new sw. Can you be hit by an enemy with a crit and get a regen and put a poison on them just by them hitting You? If not, then don't compare the two. That's an insult to pre 12.0 she's memory

    Can you hold block and regen on demand with SW? Seriously. Pffft.

    That's why you bring Spark together with Blade.

    Same as why you bring a 3-4 men Crit Team with SW.

    SW only regen by her hitting them. So she doesn’t get regen from being hit either. She has different spells for offense and different spells for defense. But blade is not even close to what she was. Chain stun and power lock the whole fight. SW is still great. Put her with quake and HE. I’ve had 3 regens at once with her. She got a lot of her stuffs back. They just reduced the length of a lot of stuffs like stun and power lock. Reduced her chance of regen from 15% to 5%

    Yes, its great to see the holy trinity go trow your defense in AW like is nothing,and see blade turn of all the abilities of your defenders. Its just ridiculous.

    Play different champs 5* or 6* Cable for one. Iceman, Medusa, Ultron, Sentinel, NC. Be smart about your placement. If you haven’t put in th time or money to get there yet then start with that.

    Blade nerf posts, the new forum spam.

    It’s the new rank down tickets, although I’m sure they’ll pop up every so often

    I got blade and awakened him. He's good, but honestly... it's mostly hype. He relies on a synergy team and even then he's not a Swiss army knife. I think I'd actually prefer a dupe archangel. The YouTubers make blade look amazing because many of them are top tier fighters.

    I have a duped AA. The problems with his ability reduction:
    (1) it requires you build bleed, and poison; then convert to neurotoxin -- making him almost useless (other than being a 4/55 with high stats) against a large percentage of champs (either bleed or poison immune, but especially bleed immune champs)
    (2) all the conditions expire

    Basically -- you can totally lock down opponents if you have time to build those or good luck on rng with one try -- or you can be stuck with a single neurotoxin (or none) trying to build up while your opponent's abilities are mostly unchecked.

    Blade has passive 85% ability reduction. That's crazy; it's enough that I tried 7 times for him (no blade in my "blade" crystals :cry: ). I have a great set of 5*s (DV, Angela, Hyperion, Sparky, SL, AA, Void, NC (unduped), Magik, GP (3/45), Hela, Rag Hulk, etc) ... I can clear everything without Blade. But Blade is clearly the best answer for AW because of his flexible passive ability reduction, esp combined with some on-demand healing; I sometimes use him as a 4* on account of that.

    It's not like pre-12.0 SW; but it's still much better than other champs. There's a reason almost everyone who can ranks up Blade, and why he's overrepresented on legends runs.

    I agree with the author of this thread. blade is an abuse as Scarlet witch had the mutant team. blade is over used. it allows to finish easy without paying expensive
    -act 5.4
    -act 5.5
    - legend run titles
    - labyrynth of legend
    - -attack war

    it completely ruined the game.

    Please kabam repair the contest

    I clear my War lines and solo bosses w/o Blade. Completed all of Act 5 w/o Blade using resources I saved thru event quest and daily crystals. Have no desire to do legends run it’s a watered down title. Ppl have completed LOL long before Blade came to the contest.

    Don’t own Blade but there are some in my ally who do and they stil struggle to do the above. He isn’t a cheat code and there are plenty other champs that, if used properly will get you thru hard content. Just b/c you are jealous of Blade owners, see your mystic defenders get wrecked while not adjusting your defense properly doesn’t mean he needs a nerf. SW before 12.0 was on a another level. I cleared ROL w/ a 4/40 using no items.

    Whaaaat? Archangel almost useless?
    He is a killing machine!
    In understand that against a Bleed immune he is just a regular champ... but he is still immune to ability accuracy reduction. Even more, limbo doesn't affect him when Magik is under neurotoxins, and Neurotoxins are easy to trigger if you know how to use him.

    I have an awakened 4 star Blade, which is not on par with my 4/55 Archangel, but I still can use AA fully without the need to bring one or two champs to make him greater. I use Blade against awakened Dormammus mostly, and to make my Sparky stronger. But you don't need Blade to beat content. I did uncollected without Blade or Sparky. Mostly because I also have Medusa, and there are a lot of Robots this month.

    Now Scarlet Witch was and is able to regen 100% without you doing anything or risking being hit. She places poison and heal block and power lock, she can power drain and power steal (now working). And she was able to do all this before she was nerfed, she just doesn't trigger it that much. But it will still happen in long fights. I do not see Blade doing any of this with so much ease. I understand that Blade does a lot of damage, but the Witch can do some crazy stuff that can remove 50% of the opponent health in one hit. So, no, Blade is not the new SW.

    I don't have Blade, but I'm personally fine with the game. This idiot is just butt-hurt he lost out on Blade, although he has Voodoo & Ghost Rider... Easily God-Tier Champions that you can do practically anything with. No player in .deserves to share a game with this moron

    Blade does not have a passive 85% ability reduction. It’s 40%. And with spark on his team, it’s 58%.
