    I’m okay with the idea of champion requirements, and I personally have the 5* and 6* roster for this not to affect me, but I do sympathize with the people who rely on 4*s for certain utilities and synergies.

    I still use 4*s for utility when i don't have that champ as a 5*

    No but whatever they will do what they want it’s up to you whether you want to continue to play and poor time and money into the game

    My 5* roster is not good enough. Most of 4* would go though the chapter much easier.

    Considering quitting the game now as future content like the challenges that pop up will eventually go down this road too. Terrible decision on Kabams part, detriment to Marvel more than ever now. No point continuing to play in eco system so leaning towards less fun and more grind/spend than ever.

    Absolutely ridiculous banning the four stars ..

    Didn't mean to vote yes. It's effing stupid to ban 4*s. Been praying for a killmonger since summer to complete my unholy trinity and pulled his 4* two weeks ago. Was thrilled. Now, not so much. Plus, I ranked up my 4* dupes over my 5* undupes (if I didn't plan on taking them past r3) because I never imagined something this stupid would happen.

    At least I won't be wasting any resources on 4*s anymore. I used to rank them up but now, there's no use for them. Not very smart, kabam.

    I'm sorry, but I don't really mind it. I think the requirement makes act 6 difficult. I kind of like that difficulty spike, although I can Cleary why people hate it so much.

    Disgusting act on kabams part. People would be more comfortable if you would just come out and say " we have to do this to keep the game viable". Instead of lying to us.

    There was no warning. People have ranked up 16+ 4* duel to synergy/gaps in their roster.

    Terrible decision. Even if only the top players can complete act 6 and have the roster to do it banning four stars is dumb. Even some of those guys need four stars for synergy teams to maximize the five and six stars they have. It limits the options if 95% of the player base. Cash grab ImO.

    Not just no, but hell no. I don't have time to type out a long explanation, but proff Hoff does a good job in this video of objectively explaining why this was a **** move on kabam's part.

    I'm fine with it, I almost never use 4* anyway

    You're entitled to your opinion. I personally don't find his videos very entertaining, but in this particular case he did a good job with his assessment, and I completely agree with him.

    This was a bad, bad decision. With my roster, I can get by with 5* and 6* champs. I can't think of many 4* I'd use, with the exception of Masacre for synergy. I feel sorry for people who either have bad 5* champs or not many 5* champs and rely heavily on their 4* roster. Bad, terrible decision.

    I have to say, it wasn't hard to see this coming. Kabam gave out a free 5* awakening gem earlier this year for nothing. That was a clear sign of more shift. They've also had more 5* shards in calendars, events and offers (see: $$$$). Another clear sign.

    This was a bad decision. Ultimately, why would Kabam care? If people want to use 4* champs almost exclusively, they'll probably need to use more resources, but what should that matter?

    I don't mind if Kabam implements champion requirements. The (recurring) problem with kabam is that they throw very significant changes out there with very little warning. Just like they did with 12.0 and the Nerfpocalypse.

    Kabam absolutely could have and should have alerted the players that Act 6 was going to be restricted to 5*/6* champs well in advance so that players could decide for themselves if they wanted to keep investing resources in specific 4* champs or investing time into grinding arena for specific 4* champs. Instead they just let everyone keep on doing what they've been doing and spending time and money on champs that have no future in the game.

    Go ahead, keep thinking that's their reasoning behind it. And let's say it was, that they want a "difficulty spike" wouldn't it be much more difficult doing it with a 4* than a 5*? So that logic makes no sense

    It's meant as a gate to keep people in the game and progressing instead of just spending their way through it. They have done similar with other content, (aCT V highly prioritized certain classes, we had the 2* arena..) I mean you can't really use 3* in Variant realistically anyway, and can only use two classes which limits synergy and what capabilities you can bring. Funny no one seemed to have an issue with that.

    For synergy reasons alone there's no good reason for this requirement. I doubt 4*s would be viable to be all that effective in Act 6 but some of the best I am sure would have their uses. I've invested in Stark (5/65) and Blade (4/55) in ways I probably would not have without my 4* Ghost Rider....
