    People, Kabam's hands are tied by NETMARBLE, as they have been since the v12 update debacle, which was the lynchpin in the purchase of Kabam by Netmarble. The Netmarble business model has destroyed every game they have purchased and MCOC is slowly going the same route. The only reason it hasn't died yet is because of the community that was built prior to the Netmarble purchase, but that community is being destroyed from the inside by the trolls that have been planted to create infighting. Your choices are limited, I for one am not paying exorbitant prices for a silly game..

    Fyi 4* rank 5 are Challenger Rating CR100 as are 5* Rank 3. They’re equivalent in power... So the argument that someone may not be ready to do Act 6 because they need 5* Champions isn’t supported by this logic.

    Absolutely one of the reasons the community is upset is the synergy opportunity using 5* and 4* in a team... another is the money, time and resources invested into a 4* roster. There are many justifiable reasons. Good discussion.

    Fighting amongst each other isn't the objective here. My point is, it's a free to play game if you chose. Kabam has consistently put out new content EVERY MONTH. Even if act 6 is beyond a good amount of players, there will still be plenty of fighting (in game) to be done. Don't get so worked up over 1 piece of content when there is plenty available and even more to come. Don't be so quick to jump on the bandwagon, if you have enjoyed the game so far, continue to do so. Act 6 will be here forever. Kabam is a business, they need to make money to keep the game around so that shouldn't be a focal point of this debate... no money no game. If you don't want to spend you don't have to, they don't have in game ads which I appreciate so They need to "milk the whales" to keep it free to play.

    What I chose to do is NOT rank ANY champ until I have a need for them. When I got to a point where 4*s were not need, I stopped ranking them, "good tier" or not. Now I only rank top 5*s, in the future only top 6*s. People are talked into ranking up champs by YouTubers, instead of focusing on their actual needs. Simply think for your self and your own needs.

    6* Rank 1 CR 110 = 5* Rank 4 CR 110

    Why the 6* requirement?

    Sigh.

    It was bad enough with the 4 / 5 * issue and the terrible explanation for the 5* only requirement. Now there’s a 6* requirement?!

    Stop this Kabam. Just do the right thing and buy the bag. Aka get rid of gating now and forever.

    I would hope anyone who spent time and money did it for a reason they needed to address at that point in time. But this game always evolves, that's why I would never invest in a champ for war defense, eventually they will make a counter so why waste resources.

    A lot of people, myself included, have maxed 4* of champs they don't necessarily need but enjoy playing. After all this is a game meant to provide enjoyment no? I really want an Emma Frost for example, now I have to pull her as a 5* or 6* in order to use her in future story content. So essentially a champ I really like and want to invest in and play I most likely won't be able to for a long time now and that doesn't sit well. Also as an aside idk of anyone who ranks champs based off of youtubers.

    @Kabam Miike you say you ramping up rewards, i say blah. For completing a chapter in the 2nd most difficult tier of monthly quest you give me a 1 000 3* shards. So, how will a 1 000 3 star shards help a guy grow to get to the 5 and 6 stars requirements needed for act 6?

    If you want to ramp up * requirements ramp up monthly quest rewards. Normal to drop 3* for completion 4 star for exploration. heroic 4 and 5, master 5 and 6 and uncollected 6 and extra 6. Then yes we are moving up, but now for a weeks worth of effort with energy i get a full 3 star crystal for my effort, wow, thanks guys. All the current monthly quest rewards needs to be moved up atleast one tier in rarity for you to say you are putting in a effort to help us grow to get the act 6.

    I don´t know what to think about this new mission, i mean, you'll have another tittle that is diferrent but it will be more difficult to have it....
  • Hey,

    Kabam has introduced the gate system and its pretty backwards, but instead of trying to fight among ourselves on whether it is good or not (especially to that one person who has taken upon himself to prove why this was a correct move), lets look at potential solutions:

    1) Remove Gate - Obvious one, but since the company is thinking from a buisness standpoint ($$ playa), it seems unlikely this will happen.

    2) Make 5* basic arenas available immediately - This should be a no brainer. Right now, the biggest concern apart from synergies is that the community does not have many questing 5* champion because of RNG. Right now, the only method to get a 5* of our choosing is through the featured arena and that is limited to 150 people. So, at the max, only 300 summoners get the chance to get new champions. The remaining 99.999999% of the community has to either spend units (which is just absurd value). On introducing the basic arena, u allow a percentile of summoners to get champions of their choosing. Let me remind u that most of the 300 summoners that get the new champions are already summoners who have a big stack of 5* and therefore people who actually need them have an even lesser chance.

    Some interesting notes:

    a) Story acts are the main points in the game where a summoner could actually cover the distance between a high mid-tier summoner and lower mid-tier summoner. This was a changing point in the pecking order (not for the really high 3%ers, but for upper mid tier and lower mid tier players). But with gating, u are only allowing a summoner of certain tier to progress further. U have made the capability to reduce the progression gap between mid tier summoners be completey based on RNG.

    b) The most obvious reason for gating is synergies. Any reply from Kabam is not telling how the impact of synergies will be resolved. And this is a big factor. Synergies make or break a champion and Kabam having realized that they have made some over powered synergies and this is the best method to nullify that.

    I hope KABAM actually implements the 5* basic arena before the end of this month as that will allow people to start progressing towards act 6. If they are worried about people getting flooded with 5* because of this, make it so that those arenas can be only accessed after getting uncollected (at which point, 5*s reduce their values as 6*s become the new highest standard). Also to some people saying uncollected is also a gate, its a big difference. Uncollected is a milestone of progression which every summoner will eventually reach with equal difficulty. But the hard gate like in act 6 is not a milestone but a RNG based system. Its not gonna be reached equally by all. There should never be a hard gate (or stopping point) in a progression system, especially if that stopping point is based on RNG which the summoner has no control over.

    Also, Rewards with that Title.
    I think Uncollected was quite a benchmark at one time, then scores of people got through it, and that leaves a very large group between Uncollected and this point. Like it or hate it, that's the separating factor they've chosen to implement for the next step up.

    This is really the most annoying thing for me. It's part of the same story arc as acts 1-5. Why should the same champs that got me there now be banned? Why shouldn't we be able to play around with lower teams after we beat it? It's not that big a deal for me, I just wish they had gone about it a different way.

    There’s a large variance in the rosters between the Uncollected(s).

    Yeah that's what I'm trying to say. At one time, it was a genuine feat. Now there's really not much separating progress levels.

    .....and this is the ridiculousness that follows.

    Wasn't completely undeserved, but I don't see that post staying for long.
    There's absolutely nothing deserving about that mess. It's just sad, really. Like watching someone self-destruct. It's not going to hurt me in the end.

    Well, by the time people are on Act 6, they probably have a healthy 5* Roster.

    How do you know this for sure? What do you mean by healthy 5* roster? A lot of people don’t have what you call a healthy 5 star roster since most people don’t actually pull good champs from the **** shoot you call a 5 star crystal. Call it what it is. A cash grab and shameful move Kabam Mike.

    Out of curiosity what would apple store say if you told them you bought units to open crystals and then weren't able to use them in content?

    Sounds like trouble to me

    If kabam wants five star restrictions to Act 6, make road to greatness a monthly event...
