Summoners, we recently encountered an issue with the Alliance Quest Setup Phase Starting Timer that may cause the Setup Phase Starting Timer to display erroneous information, though we are working on a fix for it as quickly as possible. Additionally, if the Setup Phase does not let you plan your days in advance, you will be able to once the Event officially begins on the Alliance Quest Start date.

For clarity, the next Alliance Quest Enlistment Phase will begin on December 5 at 20:00 UTC, regardless of what the in-game timers display.

The next Alliance Quest Start will be on December 6 at 20:00 UTC. This is when Summoners should be able to enter each Map. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.
Alliance War Season Rewards will start to roll out to Summoners very soon. These will take a while to get to everybody, so do not worry if an Alliance Mate receives their rewards, but you haven't yet. We thank you for your patience.

    So, you are making it more difficult yet not adjusting anything like rewards or even glory? Can I ask why? How does this benefit the players?

    As we said in that post, we are working on a full refresh. We are not at a place or time where we can increase the rewards or fully refresh the mode right now.

    If you aren't at a place or time to refresh the rewards then you shouldn't be at a place or time to refresh the difficulty. One should not go without the other. This is a great example of pure laziness

    But how are you so sure that the difficulty has gotten worse?

    Granted, Bleed and Poison champions may not be as effective in Alliance Quests as they were before, but Sentinels melt at the power of a Armor Break Champion, and a lot of the new Mini-Bosses have very common counters!

    How many armor break champions have regen?
    Ironman, ultron and SIM from memory.

    I wish I had a dupped one of those as 5 star!

    Ultron (MCU) does not. IP does. King Groot and DS do also.

    All I can say is get ready for a lot of people leaving the game most wont even care about the rewards anymore
  • just used x23 on the first sentinel. Not bad. Pushed him to 3 bars of power and he used sp2 twice. Longer fight than I normally see on Day 1 though.

    This is exactly how I felt after my first couple of fights against these new additions. Symbioids were used as rest stops before. Now these are the most annoying fights. This does not encourage me to play more or spend at all.

    Is there an easy to access breakdown of the new sentinel abilities? I was just fighting the science one and got a bunch of weird looking debuffs applied to me when I hit him with a special.

    If people are going to leave the game because something is new and more challenging, they're not going to last the long haul either way.

    They use to be my easy recharge points.

    Well, I suppose my favorite champion (x23) and wolverine, both rank 5 4* champs, have now been relegated to the monthly quest. Looks like I'll be ranking superior iron man back to rank 5 after I used my one rank down ticket to take him down...

    What a surprise, you've once again attacked the fan base for having a problem with something Kabam did. I'm seriously shocked this time.
  • So despite the huge negative reaction to this update you went ahead and pushed it through anyway, bravo kabam you sure know how to kill your own game

    Dear gw, you and the mods are the only people stupid enough to be tying to say these aren’t harder. Let’s define harder, more hits to kill, and specials that are harder to evade and damage you through block... in no way easier... =harder
  • SempaidavidSempaidavid Posts: 96
    Congratulation to Kabam for finding a way to make an update to AQ that literally no one wanted. This update doesn’t do anything to make it more interesting or fun. It merely makes champs that we invested in near worthless. I see a lot of 1 star reviews hitting the App Store over this.
  • Sentinals are a horrible idea. #Retiring

    I definitely don't think people will leave over this. But if they do, oh well.

    Wait a second has no one thought of this yet? Guys think about it with the AQ before the changes people could bring champs like ghost rider or the god tiers right? With the new 5 star featured they contain champs who people use most often in AQ and AW so this sentinel change just changed our teams around so that those same god tiers have less use in AQ.

    Everything makes so much sense now.
