    I do strongly believe as you should that the videos are on the way and will be the coolest most rad educational videos to help prepare everyone for the final push to act 6, the wisdom of the contest is grounded because everything in the game that is bad is actually good to all of us because it prepares us for the upcoming events we can or cannot handle, thus the changes as my mentor would mention and mention and mention with heart felt, getting to the facts, upbeat and positive advice and all knowledge in the world and beyond the universe and beyond the cosmic realm. The upcoming videos will be for all only if you have wisdom on a common ground as we all do. The videos will demonstrate the technical aspects to there fullest to the potential that only we can experience in the mcoc universe. I do believe and don’t doubt in the slightest whatever is put out will definitely help us all so you may have the wisdom. As a wise person once told me before that change is good and I’m happy with anything that passes my way and if it don’t seem right I will make you believe it’s the right choice or I’ll keep on keeping on so you understand one way or another. Stay grounded people and the wisdom shall shine through as the game in my eyes and soon yours will become more better for everyone.

    Doubling down on my statements is trolling because you disagree. Wow

    Putting all the personal attacks and posturing aside, there’s actually a decent point buried in the last page or two:

    What actually is the point of an Elder’s Bane title?

    Perhaps I’ve forgotten what we got for it, but I remember it necessitated a multiple of the work and effort required for achieving the title of Uncollected. Other than signifying that we explored all of Act 5 (which means multiple cheapshot Collector passes, not just one) and was among several good rewards, it was just another empty title to go on the shelf, unless my recollection fails me.

    Dr. Zola

    Yes Sir, you are correct. The titel did not give us any advantage like Uncollected did, it was basically just a title.
    That gets me to my point: let’s assume that Kabam wants people to play their game more, not less. More play means more time in-game means more potential for revenue. More revenue means more content, champs, longevity, etc. None of us wants the game to close up shop tomorrow.

    Elder’s Bane should be a stepping stone that moves players closer to “endgame of endgames” or whatever Act 6 is supposed to be. But it doesn’t—it comes with an infusion of cats and rankup materials that are only useful if you have champs worth a rankup.

    At some level, the title is akin to a Fortnite skin you can’t even put on your champ. It’s vapor, and when I step back, I think that’s where a lot of this has gone awry. Periodic rewards attuned to Elder’s Bane recipients and designed to prep rosters for the rigors of Act 6 should have been part of the process.

    Understandably, the team likely makes new content decisions on more of an ad hoc basis than they’d like us to know. Act 5 titles probably weren’t envisioned with Variant and the Maze and Act 6 in mind.

    But...ret-cons are a core part of comics. If the gate is set in stone, it’s certainly not too late to ret-con a title to assuage some of the soreness in the community.

    I’ll forget about this requirement thing if they add all the champions like scarlet witch, electro, war machine... to the 5* basic crystal. Not just dungeon crystals and fgmc.

    Hey fellas, I’m like everyone else...I’d be lying to myself if I didn’t say I was disappointed, and upset at the out of the blue decision...it affected everyone in some way, as a steady player of the game like most I do understand the outcry and anger that comes with this change. With time hopefully everything will get better and settle back down once the dust clears over the situation...only thing we can do is push forward and do the best as we can, cause at the end of the day kabam is king and has the final say. Very sad, most of the community is great and it should matter what we think since we supported there product for years.

    Hey All,

    I wanted to drop one more note in here on something unrelated to the Champion Restrictions. We've just granted a very small group of Content Creators early access to Act 6 Chapter 1 Quest 1. The purpose of this is so that they can make educational videos for you all on what you can expect in that first Quest before it is even live.

    These Creators will be playing on their own account, with their own resources and team. They have not had any resources granted to them, and they will not be eligible for the Legends rewards from Chapter 1.

    We'll be sharing out their content with you all as they release it closer to the release of Act 6 Ch1.

    Well... were are the videos that shall help us prepare for Act 6? Only 3 days to go, I have not found a single video
    Once again: Less than 30 hours until the release of Act 6. Where are the educational videos? Was this a lie to our face?
    Isn’t the outrage for this premature?

    4 stars can be used in Alliance Quest, Arena, Alliance war, any other event except Act 6.

    Act 6 was designed for 5 stars and 6 stars only. Act 7 will have 5 stars banned and we will just use 6 star and 7 star champs. Why? This is part of the challenge.

    Kabam for people that keep moaning like children for this, make 4 stars available to play for Act 6 but put give 1000 percent unavoidable degen, just to have those champs drop dead in 5 seconds. The tease will be glorious.

    I do not even play competitively and I have 75 5 stars. Most of them rank 3. 3 5/65, and like 10 4/55. If you dont have enough champs oh well WAIT. The content wont go away.

    This community moans for everything under the sun. Sometimes the outrage is justified like 12.0 or unavoidable damage or BS nodes. This one guys, this one is FAKE NEWS.

    Yeah, because we could only use 4* and 5* champions in Act 5. Oh, wait...
    What exatly does make a 5* champion different from a 4* champion? Why exactly is content designed to be possible with a 5* R1 champion impossible with a 4* R5 champion? Answer to that, Mister "Fake News"
    The rarity and and the stars. The same thing that makes a 3 star different from a 4 star or a 5 star.

    A rank 3 5 star is slightly stronger than a 5 star.

    5 star require more resources to be rank therefore it makes it more of a challenge to have several 5 star at 4/55 or 5/65. This is the point.

    The same reason that 3 stars were banned from LOL technically speaking. Kabam should do the same and make an enrage system with 100 percent ability reduction. This is part of the game. You need to have 5 stars to be able to do this content because that is part of the challenge. Think of it as a key you need to obtain to do the content. If you dont have many 5 stars above 4/55 you have no business attempting Act 6. It is part of the new system of the contest. Enjoy your 1, 2, 3, and 4 stars in other parts of the game.

    I just went into the game and I am able to enter LOL with 1* and 3* champions, thus 3* champions are not banned from LOL. That´s just wrong, or as you like to call it "Fake News". I´m going to tell you what Kabam should do: Allow 4* champions without any restrictions to them. 4* champions are equal or better than 5* R1-R3 champions, invalidating your whole "It´s part of the challenge" point. Getting a stacked 5* roster is not challenge, it´s pure RNG. Just like going into a Casino to play Roulette is no challenge, you´re either lucky or not, no skill required.

    If they really want to restrict Act 6 and prevent players from having a bad time, there is this thing called "Elder´s Bane". You know, the title you get from doing Act 5 100%. If you´re skilled enough to get that done, then you should be able to get through Act 6.1 as well, no matter what champions you use.

    You did not answer to my second question: Why exactly is content designed to be possible with a 5* R1 champion impossible with a 4* R5 champion?
    I said technically speaking. Go ahead and enter with LOL with 1, 2 or 3 star champs. You will die very quickly. You guys need to learn how to read. i said TECNICALLY SPEAKING.

    This, believe it or not, was not me raging, just asking a simple question. They said that we would get educational videos in order to prepare for Act 6, but I cannot find any of them. They should not lie about something that important, I have a couple of rankup choices to make, which these videos might help me with.
    Got it. I misinterpreted the “Was this a lie to our face?” portion of your post.

    This community is so entitled. I get that you all have put a lot into the game and that it has value to you but this is still just a game. Definition of a game: a form of play, especially a competitive one, played according to rules and decided by skill, strength, or luck. Kabam is making new rules for new areas of the game. I can only assume that they feel these new rules will be beneficial to longevity of their game. I understand disagreeing with it but ultimately your option is the same as with every game. Do what you can to find ways to win within the rules and format of the game. And yes, luck is a big part of this game. It has been since the very beginning.

    You must be new here ... your talking like you’ve not put anything in ?

    If you had you’d se why most are against these restrictions 🙈

    I've been playing since Jan. 2015 and 95% free to play. I have put in plenty but putting in the time and effort is fun to me.

    Not sure why people keep attacking one another, If you ignore the trolls, they will move on. Just block or hide and move on. They show up in every thread when people ignore their silly and trolling comments in other threads. We have a few hours and we can get in and try it and move past it. The damage has been done, people are leaving after seasons, big names are stepping back and none of that will change Kabams views. The community is toxic, with both kabam and each other and it just sucks the life out of you, the forum and the game.

    Awesome point and good advice, in the sea of mcoc fourms there lurks all kinds of sea life and the occasional sea monkey..if you don’t feed the sea monkeys they eventually pass on, but if fed they will devour your heart and soul.

    Totally agree with you on the Elders Bane perks. Never could see why there were perks associated with Uncollected, but nothing for Elders Bane even though it was 100x harder to achieve than Uncollected. They really should add an in between point of Uncollected and Cavalier perks. They added lower tier perks, so we know they can add another one.

    They kinda did respond awhile back. It was just nothing anyone wanted to hear. I doubt they would just state the same thing again.

    It was the one before that. The really long one for justification. It caused more of an uproar so they prob just like.... ok we answered and let’s let it drop

    That’s why I don’t consider it a big reach—it baffles me why the team wouldn’t seize the opportunity to engage this segment of the community. If titles are now going to mean something for progress across the board, a title for exploring Act 5 ought to carry significance. Players who have done so have different requisites and arguably greater commitment compared with someone who is only Uncollected.

    Again, all of this is premised on the assumption they want this demographic to continue being engaged with their game.

    Re: my comment above...

    Let me clarify something lest a moderator misunderstand it and cite me for being catty.

    What I mean is this: I’m willing to accept that I and players similarly situated to me may not be the target audience for the game right now for perfectly legitimate reasons.

    Offers (excluding holiday and annual events) often get derided as either targeted at noobs or whales. It’s not silly to think that content might take a similar route.

    If I’m not generating revenue like a newer player scaling the vertical part of the experience curve or the endgame player pushing the vanguard, there’s not a lot of economic incentive to target me with meaningful offers or content.

    There are countless approaches that explore this and related concepts in business theory (think basic market segmentation as expressed via BCG 2x2’s, for example, or related concepts like product life cycles). So maybe I’m the Summoner equivalent of the iPhone 5, fit only to be put out to pasture in exchange for newer models.

    So that’s the point of the last line in my previous post. Didn’t want it to be misconstrued.

    I feel that this could have gone more smoothly had it been a give and take, and not just taking away.

    With the champion requirements, our rosters have essentially been nerfed. Without my 4* Ghost Rider, I don’t have the trinity anymore. Without my 4* Black Bolt and with him not being available as a 5*, good luck reacquiring that Inhumans synergy. The Unholy Trinity? I only have them as 4* champs, and while they’re perfectly capable of taking on content, they’ll be locked out of this.

    What could have been given to the community to make things more balanced perhaps?
    How about a planned retooling of all year 1 and 2 champions to make them relevant to the upcoming challenges of Act 6? The Contest evolves, that’s great. But the contestants should as well. You want to introduce content that’s fitting for 2019? Bring our champions to the year 2019. The original Iron Man, released today, wouldn’t be released as is. Reworks of Luke Cage, Red Hulk, Venom, Carnage, Gamora, She-Hulk and Spider-Gwen show this. They’re much more complex and actually relevant now.

    If that’s too much to ask for, then riddle me this: why are you making us jump through these hoops?
