Summoners, there was an issue with Alliance War matchmaking today preventing Alliances from being able to match with others. As a result, this upcoming war will be cancelled. There should be no detrimental effect to any Alliance's Season performance, and we will be reducing the Alliance War Season Rewards Participation minimum to 4 Wars. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Witness the Great Revival! Act 6 Chapter 1 - Coming March 13th

    Here is a proposition: let us bring in the 4* champions, at least for synergies, and prevent us using them by having a same mechanic that you used in labyrinth (the enrage timer).


    4 stars are not prevented from use in Labyrinth, they have an enrage timer; they just don't have the longest available enrage timer.
    Yeah I know, with "prevent" I meant that we should be able to use the 4*-s, as we can use 4*-s in labyrinth - for a limited time.

    By far, this is the most popular Youtuber who voiced his opinion! I love this guy and his thoughts and you should follow his lead too

    can some people complaingn they wont be able to do it show screenshots of their 5* and 6* rosters. will help see who can do it and is just complaining and who is honestly not able / ready for it.

    Here is my top
    I know i can make it work if i have the skill.




    You still don't seem to get it so let me put it this way, a 3/45 5 star has similar base stats to a 5/50 4 star. The 5 star would be allowed in Act 6.1 but the 4 star wouldn't. This is an arbitrary distinction being used to justify gatekeeping. It doesn't matter if my roster or your roster is able to handle a challenge; you can't guarantee that someone else will ever have the roster to be able to do it. People use 4 stars to fill in the gaps of their 5 star roster for attacking purposes and providing the synergy is there, lower rarity champions are also used for synergy purposes. This is not the same thing as not having a strong enough roster for the content, new players aren't expected to complete the harder difficulties in monthly quests, and they aren't even allowed to do them until they reach a certain level and have completed relevant content. But unlike leveling up the champions you do have and becoming uncollected, you can't just decide to have the champions you need for the proposed rarity gate in act 6.1.
    you dont get the point.
    its a progression gate.
    a player who has played for less than 12 months will struggle to have the roster.
    a player who has played for 1-2 should have and if not will be close to.
    and a player who has played for over 22 years really should have enough. if not they are a very casual player who is not looking to do endgame content.
    The game was released in December of 2014, if you've been playing it for 22 years we have a different problem, one of time travel. Progression gates are handled differently in other areas of the game such as requiring you to be a certain level or have beaten specific content. This is completely different and I'm not sure how to explain it in simpler terms. Gatekeeping based on rarity is not a progression block, became as I've pointed out a 5/50 and a 3/45 are effectively the same. They have the same exact challenge rating. There's no logical reason for one to be allowed and the other denied.
    22 was clearly a typo. it was clearly intended to be 2. my keyboard often decides to double press and i missed this.

    lets wait and see wat kabam say tommorrow. see if that shows some logical rationale.

    Okay, I'm interested. T5 cc fragment crystals are good, but it looks like you'll have a hard time making a fully formed. But I think no retreat is just a cheap node. One last question, when will we see featured cavalier crystals?

    No Retreat was initially much harder (it was initially just Caltrops, with a smaller Degeneration), and we actually made it much easier to avoid as a result of feedback from a small group of Beta Testers. Hopefully when you try it out for yourself you'll get a sense of the rhythm it creates!

    As for the T5CC, it's important to remember that, as with Act 5, most of the juicy rewards were included as the content and the Act progressed. You won't be able to fully form a T5CC quite yet, but Chapter 1 is meant to get you started in a significant way (we opted to give 25% of ONE catalyst instead of 25% of potentially all 6 Catalysts in the form of 2% Fragment Crystals).
    A penalty to using dex is still a penalty that shouldn’t happen, no matter how you spin it. You’re penalizing a player for using skill. You removed caltrops for that exact reason, now you come back with this? Laughable
    There also used to be a fun node/buff called "slashed tires." Players found a way around that buff or some other means to deal with it.

    As for benefiting, that's not really the goal of a roadblock. It's meant to limit what you can use. The reasoning behind that is to make it harder to do for some than others. That's the only logical purpose of a requirement, to restrict what you use to the requirement. Now, their reasons are yet to be seen, but I can understand the need for progress gates. I remember when Uncollected first came out. It was something to work towards. Then everyone became Uncollected, figuratively speaking, and that created a flood of Resources and people of all different levels of progression acquiring it. All you had to do was down The Collector once. That also had drawback effects in terms of overall balance. This is just another way to group levels of progression as I see it.

    exactly as i just said elsewhere.

    i will be going for nick fury 4* in arena cus i assume synergy monster with everyone.
    i use 4* heimdall often cus of his synergy he was MVP for cap marvel challenge even though he barely fought himself.
    am i frustrated at this announcement. yes.
    am i dissapointed. yes.
    will it affect my roster and team i sue. yes.
    is it the end of the world. no.
    will i still do this anyway. yes.

    all i am saying is kabam have chosen to do this and we can work around it and work with it so we should just adapt as we always do as games progress.

    Terrible for lesser players who haven’t stacked 5*& 6* champs. Discrimination against those people. Kabam You will force these players to give up. Please look at his and change it.

    It's the hardest story content in the game. It's end game. I don't like the decision either but let's hold off on the discrimination lol.

    Just pulled 5* ghulk, hopefully face me works against act 6 degens.

    Also, I'm a bit confused. The last thing that happened in story quests(after 5.4), doctor strange reassembed the shards, but the piece at the heart was missing. But now in 6.1, they're showing that carina is back. Did i miss something? When did they get the last piece?


    If i didn't miss anything i'm guessing that's what act 6.1 will be about

    Several months back, it showed her in a bed turning back from crystal with the collector sitting by the bed. It was in the ending cutscene for one of the event quests. I believe the story of that quest was getting the last piece.

    Also, they said earlier that gulk will regen against the act 6 specific degen.

    Oh yeah i remember that now. Collector had the heart piece with him right?

    Hey everybody,

    We're seeing your concerns, and desire for more clarification on the Champion Requirements. We're going to write something up to clearly present our intentions with these requirements and their purpose. We don't want to create any more confusion, so we're going to take our time with this. We'll have something to give you insight into our intentions tomorrow.

    So basically an explanation on your side of why 4* can't enter Act 6 and nothing else. Don't get your hope high, peeps! 4* will still be banned in Act 6.1

    it was aegon who was the one with the power to bring her back

    well with kabam restricting act 6 to 6 and 5 stars only....how about removing giving better access to 4 and 5 star shards so we can grow our rosters faster. this has to be a give and take thing.
  • LSDinLSDin Posts: 173 ★★
    This move is atrocious!

    How many of us have spent hundreds if not thousands in the game buying offers to actually rank up 4 stars that have long term viability for future content? I've ranked up 4*'s knowing that while my future is 5/6*'s - I need certain champs for synergy purposes - and if I'm rolling w. a 4* champ on my squad of 5*'s for that purpose I want them to be r5 max / max sa ~ so if I do use them while clearing a path they are a viable option. I have spent hundreds (if not more) in this game and Kabam has turned around and slapped me in the face - and then slugged me in the gut dropping me to the ground while laughing & urinating on me and calling me a stupid pitiful fool - that's how it feels .. after I have supported this company financially for so long 🤬

    absolutely horrible and in all reality ~ quite possibly fraudulent on their part.
  • Jass007Jass007 Posts: 62
    Omgggg I can't believe they blocked 4 stars from act 6 ....what s the use of ranking up four stars ...all that gold t4c everything wasted ..kabam guys this move will be highly ridiculed among community members ..I'm sure
  • Jass007Jass007 Posts: 62
    This gives average players with only 4-5 good five stars absolutely no chance whatsoever to even complete once ...I may be wrong but I highly object omission of 4 stars from champion requirement

    This game should be about skill & strategy

    It has always been about twitch skill, strategy, and roster progress. And of those three, one of them is the foundation the game is built on, and unlikely to be altered by asking.
    I like the nod to roster progress, which is premised on pRNG. Because you can only progress the roster that happens for you.

    No 4* is the worst decision you ever made.
  • LufasoLufaso Posts: 104
    If you did something like that it would have been so much fun :
    6.1.1 only 1*
    6.1.2 only 2*
    6.1.3 only 3*
    6.1.4 only 4*
    6.1.5 only 5*
    6.1.6 only 6*

    Kabam: ok. We need more people to buy our well priced GMCs. So this is what we are going to do. You had fun with your 4*. They served their purposes but too bad they can’t be used anymore for act 6. if you like those 4* champs, just try your luck at our amazing GMC casino. 5* champs just cost 6000 units on average.

    Good luck summoners!
