    Can we get the rewards posted for back issues 2 please
  • Back Issues #2 - Mystery in the Micro-Realms
    Return to a classic Quest from the early days of The Contest with this second edition of BACK ISSUES!


    This will be in addition to the Ultron quest, right? It won't replace it? I'm still waiting for a decent Cosmic 5* to use my 3-4 rank up gem and get the last chapter done.

    bounty missions with new rewards? 5* crystal, awakening gem?

    I'm just trying to follow up on some previous comments, and maybe we could get some insight. If you are bringing something like Ultron's Assault into the game, there has to be another level for it. Classic was absolutely ridiculous in terms of the actual content challengers faced, but Variant is heavily geared towards the endgame community. For most of us, I think we need to find the middle ground. Perhaps something that will initiate a challenge, while providing decent rewards as well. At a higher difficulty than Classic, but it shouldn't be close to Variant. Could we please have a particular section like this? It will make the content attainable for many people in the MCOC community, as I am sure.

    Middle ground? There’s Masters, Uncollected, A5. 😒

    Yes, I understand that. But this content could be a bit more appealing to mid-game players is all I am trying to convey.

    Bounties in the Negative Zone!
    Activate Bounties so that your entire Alliance can travel to the Negative Zone and face off against dangerous challenges to obtain valuable resources!

    Does it mean that this is a special event alliance quest, not a solo one? :/

    I’m guessing you mean the “rewards” being more appealing. Lol

    Matter of fact is, if you’re not done with A5 100%, then there’s no point in making another level of content for you. And if you’ve done A5 100%, you have the first run of 6.1 to do, which will then accelerate your roster breadth to tackle Variant Back Issues #1 and eventually, #2 when it’s released.

    Yes. It should be similar to the Bounty missions that were done twice before. Think once was when domino was introduced and can’t remember the one before it.

    If there's one thing I'm hoping for with the second Back Issues, it's a third, middle difficulty for people who can breeze through the classic mode, but can't hope to even get started on Variant. Doesn't necessarily have to have game-breaking rewards, just something around the difficulty of Heroic or Master EQ (or a bit more, just as long as it's not as crazy as Variant), with decent midgame rewards (4- and 5-star shards, MAYBE a 4* generic AG, some t4b and t4cc, maybe also a 4* 4->5 gem or two.) I'm looking to 4/55 my first champion but I still have use for my 4* champs.

    I really don't think they are going to add mid tier permanent content that people can breeze through in a day. Doesn't make any sense.

    Yes. These are permanent. It should be in addition to. At least that's what I gather.

    looking forwards to this, when the Mystery in the Micro-Realms first came out, I was just getting back into the game so didnt have chance to complete it

    Yes we don't deserve new content because we still haven't completed act 5. Trust me if I could do act 5 I would, but me waiting to save up units to progress in act 5 shouldn't mean I get no more content till I get 50 5*s...

    This is specifically endgame content. It's meant for a specific demographic in the game. If you haven't finished exploring story, lol, and 100% every UC event, then you aren't that target yet

    You don't need to spend to do UC/variant IF you're got your duped 5* Blade to 5/65. But for common mortals, like me, have only unduped ultron and unduped magik at 4/55. Not way to complete those quests without spending, thx to crazy buffs placed with usual care by kabam. Have fun and die trying! (©Kabam)

    The variant piece is specifically meant to be for stacked rosters.. which can be attained by time and completing small things like UC, AW, AQ for a period of time... There will come a time when you will be ready for it and actually enjoy it ....

    Hyperbole much? You don't need 50 5*s for content at your level. You get new content every month, at least some portion of it will be appropriate for your roster and skill, just like everyone else. Do it and get stronger. Permanent content will still be there when you're ready for it.

    Back issues suck for mid tier players, its rather for starters or end game accounts and nothing for mid tier, which means they fall behind even more because of yet another mode where they not rewarded appropriately, its as bad as locking them out act 6, and stacking rewards at the top of AQ where mid tier alliances can never catch up because the rewards disparity is too big.
