    Thanks for the challenge and showing me this guy can actually do something outside of arena points and cosmic combat events. Enjoyed it!

    I just don't understand how you failed to see the disparity between Difficulty and Reward ratio with the Maze. Champion's Contest was significantly easier even though we faced many more champs and the rewards were 5x better, the monthly rewards as well as those for Variant are better than this trash. How did you fail to look at this before putting in the game?

    Any new "end game" content should include t5b, t2a, and 6* shards. It's that simple.

    1) I agree with all of this except the final 2 sentences. I don't think all "end game" content is required to include T5B, T2A, and 6* shards. Kabam could've included a 5* awakening gem crystal in Maze rewards and nearly all of the complaints would lose their merit. End-game players had four to five or more 4/55 champions when Act 5.3 dropped, that's comparable to current end-game players having four to five or more 5/65 champions. Act 5.3 exploration rewards included a 5* awakening gem crystal. Exploring Act 5.3 with 5/50 champions was much easier than most of the fights I had in The Maze and Maze fights that were easier than finishing Act 5.3 with 5/50 champs were only easier because I had a top counter for those fights ranked up to 5/65. The sole exception to this is using 5/50 Void for Maze Mephisto.

    2) The rewards offered in this quest would be less of an issue if this content was permanent.

    It's not, it's for players who have certain 5* champions at 4/55+ and as 6* and in rare cases maxed 4*s. Some examples include:

    Heimdall - Voodoo, Magik, Killmonger, Cap IW

    Killmonger - Corvus, Thor OG, King Groot, Duped Cap IW w/cosmic synergy

    Archangel - Sentinel, Iceman, Emma Frost, Ultron, Bleed Immune Champs when used with skill

    Emma Frost - Star Lord, Cap IW, Proxima (hated this fight the most)

    Korg - Proxima, Voodoo, King Groot, any champion with strong intercepting skills

    Symbiote Supreme - Magik, Killmonger, Cap IW w/tech synergy

    Mephisto - Void (4* works)

    IMIW - Corvus, Hyperion, maybe Cap IW

    Aegon - Voodoo, Symbiote Supreme, maybe Archangel

    Iceman - Corvus, Sabretooth, Mephisto

    Wasp - Corvus, Heimdall, Proxima, Karnak

    Thanos (Both) - Proxima, Archangel, Blade w/Danger Sense, Star Lord, Sparky, Cap IW

    Guillotine - Star Lord, Sparky, Proxima, any champion with strong intercepting skills

    Champion - Voodoo, Symbiote Supreme, maybe Magik

    The level of difficulty for the rewards offered is a joke !

    No 6* shards, no t5b, he’ll not even a full 5* or t2a... and then not even random 5* stones, but a rainbow of chance. I think they screwed the pooch on this one. It costs less to buy the Christmas deal with better rewards 2x over than what is offered here with time and units...

    If others think diff I would love to hear
  • Cranmer00Cranmer00 Posts: 521 ★★
    The Maze is way harder with less rewards.. Is this Christmas time or April Fools?
  • DTMelodicMetalDTMelodicMetal Posts: 2,785 ★★★★★
    This is like when your parents hype you up for an AMAZING Christmas present. But instead of a new Roku TV or a new iPhone or something... they give you an old bag of itchy wool socks. Just a grand disappointment. :|

    Call your bet and raise you Kabam announcing Cyclops in the 6* champion pool and players later finding out it's not the effective Cyclops

    Soooo, can we raise the rewards now? This is obviously a mistake. U can just send more rewards by email. Still plenty of time to correct the mistake. Don’t be stubborn Kabam
  • GamerGamer Posts: 8,018 ★★★★★
    Just stun lock agone with rona he get so many fury so u Can kil him when rona dups
  • NojokejaymNojokejaym Posts: 3,547 ★★★★★
    Now this isn't some complaint from a Middle tier player, I have completed all hard content save Variant (due to my roster not being super expanded, class restrictions kill me) and LOL Exploration (did one pass, but saving units is my weakness) and let me tell you @Kabam Miike this maze is the stupidest thing that the developers have ever released when you compare it to the rewards. That Aegon is almost impossible to kill with such a high health pool in one try and if you don't one shot him you're ****. who the hell though this was a good idea?

    i oneshot that aegon with dr.voodoo
  • NojokejaymNojokejaym Posts: 3,547 ★★★★★

    Great post! How is King Groot good against Korg? Can you elaborate?

    A few more suggestions:

    Stark Spidey is great against Emma Frost and Iceman

    Blade w Danger seems to be the best option against Guillotine

    Ronan can stun lock Heimdall and Aegon

    Medusa with the armor shatter shuts down all power gain and hits uber hard in this fight
  • After having played around with the maze here are my thoughts on it.

    First, as a piece of content geared towards end game players it really hits the mark well. I have done one path through so far and have been running it as far as I can go itemless on the other 3 paths. It is quite fun, albeit a bit frustrating at times when a champ like KM keeps destroying your team. The good thing is that it doesn't cost much energy and I can keep restarting the quest until I solo KM.

    Second, as content that should entice players to spend items and units to complete the quest, it fails miserably. The problem is that this quest isn't likely to get anyone but the top 1% or less spending to complete it because the rewards suck for the level of difficulty. Personally I am going to keep making runs at it, but I am not spending any more items to get through a path.

    So to summarize, I think the event has been both a success and a failure. Kabam really did a good job on the difficulty while still making the quest fun, but they failed to include the necessary rewards that would entice the spending that I'm sure they would like to see.

    Thanks, same to you. King Groot's regen can recover damage lost to Korg's thorns ability. KG can also do decent damage when he stacks enough fury. See Reddit post here:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/ContestOfChampions/comments/a7wesy/565_king_groot_vs_maze_korg_solo/

    I wouldn't have thought of Blade using his mystic synergy against Guillotine. My 4/55 unduped Sparky didn't do well against Emma, his AI didn't evade her special attacks once. Sparky is probably a decent option when he's duped, the extra critical damage could go a long way against Emma's constant armor and diamond form.

    Magik or maybe Medusa, you'd have to intercept a lot after Medusa inflicts armor shattered. I thought Voodoo would be great for Hydra Adaptoid like he was in this year's event quest. For some reason Hydra Adaptoid gained poison immunity in the time between the Red Skull event quest and The Maze.

    IIRC, Emma's Specials ignore evade, so Spark will never auto-evade any of their hits.
