    Got it I need to leave so you can enjoy it instead of me being able to enjoy it.

    It's all about you

    You don't HAVE to do anything, but when the majority of people are saying it's ridiculous, and a few are saying, "More! More! More!".......clearly there's something being missed.

    I agree your.missing that end game content is made for end game players
    First of all, if you consider yourself End-Game because of the Trials, you're not clear on what End-Game is. Not you specifically, just the term in general.
    Secondly, rubbing it in everyone's face that you love the added difficulty whenever people have a problem with it is about as constructive as a Tsunami.
    That argument is constantly flaunted in peoples' faces whenever they point out something is too hard. "Not all content is made for everyone, something for End-Game.". Here's a fact. When you increase the number of people who are over how unnecessarily difficult something is, you end up making content that's "for" about 20 people.
    By all means, keep razzing people because you could do it. Doesn't change the facts about it.

    Fine I 100 percent every peice of content released maze variant lol. End game enough yet?

    Facts are if you cant beat it you arent ready for it.. it's literally that simple. 5 difficulties chose the one you can beat.

    Taking away the tops enjoyment so you can beat the top isnt you winning.

    It equates to the guy placing second in the Olympics entering the special Olympics the next year cause he lost

    piggybacking
    Seen Seatin get wreckt, so is he not end game?

    I did just fine, I did use only 3 r5's and used 3 revives at the end.
    I did use my favorite champ Omega Red, but hey using R5 for This kind of content is what it was suppose to be like.

    But how about people using champs today to beat content that was made several years ago?
    Rol and Lol, the fact is not everyone can also 100% variant as its very roster dependent, and getting through Lol initial clear relies on heavily having a god tier champ and easy path is really easy when you compate it to inner paths of Lol

    but clearly timed content
    in general,makes people made a frustrated resulting in post like these,

    1. your not ready
    2. you think your ready, but in reality you are not.

    Hence why a lot of people try joining platy 2/3 allainces and end up getting wrecked..because they are think they can compete.

    Seeing plat 2/3 allainces do 20,30,40+ times in a war. Yet you see all this content on youtube and war videos on how to beat the Korgs,Medusas,Things, etc.

    while in masters that I...compete in, the very top allainces die less than 10 times as an allainces, anything more than 15 is very bad performance for plat1 alliance.

    I’ve completed Act 5 100%, and initial run of Variant Chapter 1, and 00 Lab runs, but I have beaten the Epic Trials with:

    5/65 Sabretooth
    5/65 Void
    4/55 Blade
    4/55 Spark
    4/55 Venom

    It can be difficult, specifically the 2nd node, but it’s entirely doable and depends a lot on matchups. If you get an Iceman or Dormammu and don’t have an appropriate counter to deal with their abilities, then you’re going to have a bad time and should stick to Master, and develop your roster and try Epic/UC again next time.

    I agree your.missing that end game content is made for end game players

    What you’re missing is that is isn’t end game content. This is a side quest with epic difficulty. This isn’t supposed to be a Maze/Variant level of difficulty. It should be more equated to UC/Epic EQ. Of course now you’ll probably say it’s stupid for UC/Epic Trials to have roughly the same difficulty as UC/Epic EQ even though they’re rated with the same titles.

    Epic isnt end game content? So theres no end game content?
    Sorry but this is nowhere bear maze or variant difficulty those boosts make this pretty straight forward.

    Trials.need the same difficulties as their name sake event?
    Cool only time we had epic monthly eq was when everyone had Steve the symbiote(yes his name was steve) and was on par with this only more fights.

    Some of which (sym supreme werent possible unboosted with steve)

    Umm yes, they do need the same difficulties as their namesake event. Otherwise why even have difficulty titles? If they want to jack up the nodes and make it ridiculous, then fine. Just call it Elder, or something else. Don’t compare it to epic difficulty which it’s clearly not. People who have completed 5.2 should at least have a chance to complete it if it’s Epic/UC. It’s a way to gauge how difficult content is supposed to be. You have multiple R5 5* which of course will make things easier for you. Not all uncollected players have that. This is not end game content it’s a side quest. End game content is Variant, LOL, and soon to be released Act 6. But I guess other people can’t voice their opinion if it doesn’t agree with you?

    Your voicing your opinion and I'm voicing mine. I dont see the issue with that..

    Epic imo should be above uncollected expert is uncollected or so I thought.
    It's always funny people say I'm shutting out your ability to speak when theres a post in this very thread that tells me I need to find a different game to enjoy because I disagree on things

    Epic isn't necessarily supposed to be a higher level than uncollected. When we had the Epic EQ they called it epic because everyone over level 40 (or whatever it was) could join it whether or not they were uncollected. Same with these trials. They can't call it uncollected because collected people can attempt it. I don't have a problem with the difficulty but I don't think you can argue that the name Epic implies a higher level than uncollected.

    just because he got wrekt doesnt change a thing... I died once its a CHALLENGE i wasnt expecting to cruise thru it untouched. thats the point of a challenge to me is to have to focus and try. sometimes that doesnt work out.



    @Drooped2




    Ofcourse i accept all challenges,

    Thats why i made this post, not sure if u seen it, but its a part 2 and part 1 is there for other timed content that people canot do it at the time it was released.


    https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/106992/remember-not-all-content-is-made-to-be-finish-part-2/p1


    I to find myself struggling before trying to 100% master mode back then, but thats the thing with this game. The more you play/grind the further you can progress

    That's ... not ... even ... a .. bad ... set.

    Again, just feels like we will only be happy when we can blindly smash content. There are pretty bad RNG bosses in this quest like Dorm, Ice etc but this one is pretty ok.

    A challenge, not a cake walk? So 50k, crazy-Noded Champs for a Daily Side Quest is a challenge? No. What you need is a separate game where you can have insane levels of challenge, so people can enjoy this one.

    An that's why they have other difficulty levels in this quest apart from epic.

    Why do you feel like you have to do epic ? kabam have clearly started its a new harder level for more skilled an end game players who find allmother stuff boring an easy.

    I myself sleep through uncollected, but @GroundedWisdom and i are both uncollected, yet 1 of has more knowledge of the game harder content wise,a much deeper roster, experience with very hard fights, and progression wise and uncollected since day 1.

    But this is a reason why, newly uncollected people go make post on harder content just being to hard for them even though they think they can tackle it.

    You wouldnt have chosen epic in the first place if you know u cant beat it BUT this being a “timed” content it obligates people to know that they will miss out on the best possible rewards.

    Unlike varient and lol who arent “timed” content, you have the feeling “one” day you will complete it.

    Todays trial like i said i only used 3 r5’s and less than handfull revives but other than that. It was wasnt too hard for me,

    But then again you cant compare every uncollected player and put them on the same plate as me as i have....5+ 5* r5’s

    This is why its called trial and error and progression.

    Yeah people think as soon as they get uncollected it means they should be able to beat every uncollected or epic challenges. Someone brought up a really good point not long ago about people are easily becoming uncollected due to new powerful champs, but they haven't had the time to build skills to complete the content that follows. Like you said people hate to miss out on rewards.

    The people these epic challenges are designed for people who have honed their skills an roster over a longer period of time. These new challenges are putting more importance on roster an strategies in fights an using the a the right champ.

    Last Tuesday I rushed in brought the wrong team an totally forgot about the essence boosts, it's cost me a some revives to finish but was my own fault. This time I looked at all possible champs that I could face an brought a team to cover as much as I could. Remembered about the boost an got through it without an items used. Those boosts really help so much.

    Sorry but again the top deserves to enjoy the game as well if you cant beat content then dont do it.

    It really is that simple trying to remove other peoples enjoyment cause you arent ready is a terrible concept

    Nobody is trying to remove your enjoyment. This is a daily side quest, so it should be enjoyable and not so stressful. Nobody is asking this to be 100 PI champs to steamroll. We are simply asking that fights go through some kind of QA and that RNG doesn’t dominate quests like it currently is. Where a minimum of 2/7 fights are completely based on RNG it is setting a very poor precedent and you would be foolish to think it doesn’t get worse. Kabam always gets carried away and runs with stuff like this.

    We are all concerned with the state of the game and where things are headed. They are constantly adding (passive) unstoppable, unblockable and unavoidable damage nodes. Why even fight or do anything in this game? Might as well just roll a D20 and the game can decide whether or not we win.

    I am not the only one hating this content. Open your mind and stop being self centered. You like it. Fine. I dont. Most people dont. 99 percent of the player base to be exact.

    Kabam must stop testing stuff with maxed 6 stars. In fact i think this content is not tested at all given the backlash they are getting even in youtube. Mods shows a video on how to do the content. I wont hold my breath waiting.

    After week one, I went from epic to expert (which is a massive change in difficult imo). I completed the 6 days of epic the first time around, but I wasn't enjoying it and had to reach for more revives than I'd want for a daily quest. So I went down a level. The rewards for expert of course aren't as good, but they're still pretty good for 3 fairly simple fights.

    The nodes in epic are designed to negate a lot of champion possibilities and really narrow who you can use and the strength of your roster. Expert you can steamroll with pretty much any 5* r4 and r3 (and prob easier).

    I felt defeated at first, but the piece of mind is worth it.

    I have multiple 5/65 and 6 stars amd feel the same way. What is the skill on getting unavoidable damage? Remember those daus with challenges like coulson’s? Kabam has gone unrealistic and very sad to think enemies with 7+ nodes and unavoidable damage is really enjoyable.

    I bet most mods cannot even complete one fight with 4/55 champs.

    Yesterday’s was fun. I have a rank 4 Ice man, yay he’s immune to Mephisto....wait Mephisto immune to ice man.....he’s basically Olaf against Mephisto. 2 thousand hits to get him to that regen and hopefully it’s within the 20 minutes for the reverse regen boost to work

    I am ok with he health pool, i am ok with the attack levels. It really disappoints me the fact that there are **** bodes with unavoidable damage.

    I propose a new comment rule in the forums.

    If you claim "easy" on certain difficult content then provide the following:
    1. Screenshot of your champ line up shown IN the next Epic Trial.
    2. Don't just list what champs you used but the rank of your champs. The statement for instance, "It's easy with just my two champs" can easily mean you have r2 6* Rulk and r5 5* Domino in which case ALL content is easier for you and not necessarily a demonstration of greater skills at all.

    I'm sure there's other considerations but starting with this would be helpful I think.
