    I’ve used a lot more heals and revives now. This stupid sentinel, just sits on the corner blocking for nearly 10 seconds. Finally give up and go in and they use damn sp1. As well the skill sentinel just shrugs of debuffs. Sure so did the skill symbiod but it was much easier to fight. I don’t understand why they would add sentinels who, are much more difficult to fight. If you don’t agree that’s your opinion, not everyone has the right champs to fight them. While keeping the same rewards. Why wouldn’t you just wait to refresh the whole of aq, including the rewards... Now I hate war and aq. Take out the sentinels or up the rewards. Is it really hard to change the rewards?

    They are annoying and hard to kill. It would be nice for kabam to recognise they had made aq a lot harder for most people. People will adapt, especially the endgame community, but that may require ranking up different champs and that takes resources. I dont think though that they are impossible and alliances can always do the map below if they find they cant so it. It is for that reason that i think it would be nice to have a boost to the map rewards.

    The skill syms did about the same thing. They had a chance every time u hit them to remove all debuffs

    Although I voted yes, I'm not necessarily against Sentinels in AQ, I just think their abilities are a little over the top. I had more trouble with the Sentinels than Dormammu boss. Thats ridiculous. And it may be in part because Sentinels are awkward, but its also because they are OP in my opinion. But if they just improve AQ rewards I'm fine with it the way it is.

    Was it a new wrinkle? Yes. Is it as bad or hard as everyone is making it out to be? No.

    People need to stop freaking out every time they change something in the game. It takes a bit to adjust, then everything is fine.

    Of course its an adjustment, but I was surprised how much harder AQ actually is with the Sentinel change. I'm curious to see how people adjust though.

    Guys and gals, I’m not looking for a discussion. Just a simple yes or no. There are plenty of discussion posts elsewhere.

    I don't think they should take them out now that they are there. But I do think they need to be dialed back a bit until players get a little more practice on them. The jump in difficulty is in my opinion too high for what should have been (and what was described as intending to be) a small variety tweak to AQ.

    The funny part of it is that they are the hardest thing to fight on the map yet they aren’t in map 6 all of a sudden map 6 is easier than map 5 work that out only to Kabam can that make sense.

    The Sentinels aren’t “fun” to fight against and pretty much any regenerating champ has become useless.

    Rewards need to go up now not next month right now it’s just not worth it

    Don't take out sentinels instead increase rewards
  • Batpotter1Batpotter1 Posts: 348
    You could just increase rewards
  • Speeds80Speeds80 Posts: 1,890 ★★★★
    They need a tweak, charges shouldn’t build up for baiting when they won’t use their l1, and the mystic dispersion and powergain nodes need to be taken away, was a clumsy addition, there shouldn’t be so many identical fights in aq. Plus there counters don’t seem to be working properly, (medusa and nebula) take them away or majorly fix them

    They amped up the ai, map 5 has never been this difficult.
  • The poll needs another option, as in Keep Sentinels but tone them down from 11 to 7 or 8

    No. They provide a new and interesting spin on AQ. However, there needs to be something to compensate them. More rewards(more crystals, more catalyst shards, more Gold and BC so we have some to spare after donating them back). Just something that makes it apperent that this is a challenge and that the rewards need buffs. 1/4 of a basic is hardly anything for an ENTIRE WEEK of AQ(referring to the 1800 shards given out at the end of each aq)

    For the record I voted not to be removed I think there should be less of them and more real characters added

    The fights are long and boring. Putting aside difficulty and rewards the fun factor just isn’t there.

    Can anyone here tell me how to add a poll?

    Yes, they should. AQ is stale and would benefit greatly from more champ diversification.
  • ArcDeAngelusArcDeAngelus Posts: 209
    No, AQ was a breeze before this change, now you actually have to pay attention. They're not overly difficult once you figure out how to slow down the analysis charges but still wouldn't say no to an increase in rewards.
  • StellarStellar Posts: 757 ★★★
    Another option that would benefit to AQ would be to make every champions, but the boss and mini-boss, random.

    I mean, you can still know the class of the champion you will face but (for a cosmic) never know if you will fight a Thor, a Hyperion, a Medusa or a Carnage ! Considering the bonus on a node you could face real difficulties.

    THAT would increase the fun in AQ, perhaps increase a little bit the difficulties and allow player to really enjoy the AQ.

    And Yes you could get Sentinels from time to time but not half a dozen time as now...

    AQ WAS stale, now that mini bosses have changed and sentinels are in its much better.

    Real talk.

    Before these new Sentinals I was having more fun with AQ then War. Glad they fixed it so both feel rigged.

    If you block you still get Incinerated, Limbered or just lose half your R4 champ. Yippie ki yay, great update!! Always love to spent a fortune on alliance health and revives. That way at least don’t have enough units to buy an other overpriced offer.

    Take em out! The best player in my Alliance just left, one of the better guys left yesterday, I’m out the door on Saturday. I foresee a few more before my departure and a couple more after AQ rewards come in. These sentinels are not only sucking the joy outta AQ, but they’re destroying what were once solid, Map 5 100% 14+/week Alliances.

    they should take all generic champs out of the game and replace them with real champs.
