    Lmao kabam is out of touch. It's an absolute joke

    I only do Master for 250 5* shards a day, Epic is WAY too difficult considering it's targeted for Uncollected players, not Cavalier. The only reason I am doing Master is because I can cheese most of the fights with 4* Ghost + synergies and Archangel

    I have a 5* 5/65 sig 200 ghost and 5* 4/55 sig 200 wasp plus antman for quantum trinity and I still have difficulty doing epic ontop of using my 5* 4/55 sig Hyp
    Exactly why I can't do Epic, can't cheese it with a 5/50 4* Ghost

    There is nothing in those labs that rewards effort. Complete waste of time and also why would you add monthly event to special event tab for 3 or 4 days I was thinking they forgot to start side event😅😅

    It is another grind. As an example! If i pay 10 bucks a month i get to move in a big circle, fight one guy and get 125k in gold! Why not just give me the gold with the subscription?? I don't think many of us are looking for "more" ways to grind. But kabam wants us to work for every lil item and shard we get. And the labs are "you want it? You need it? Here it is! Now grind and work for it!"

    Poll options are a bit loaded!

    For me, the rewards from Master are worth the effort, and fights can be fun.

    Epic is on another scale; I've not made much attempt at these due to difficulty, although will burn some boosts and see what I can achieve next week when real life work calms down.

    I only do epic because there is nothing else to do. Have to wait when they fix all the bugs of v3

    The problem is the lab comes up daily so you have to do it everyday, 12 matches for epic only, 48 matches to clear it all. It’s just too many. For 5* shards and tier 2 alpha catalyst it’s ok, it’s very poor for 6* shards and tier 5 basic catalyst.

    Don’t say bs thing such as I can’t do so I complain because I have done everything from the beginning everyday. But last month you got 6000 tier 5 basic from side quest this month only just above 4000 is a bad move from Kabam.

    It doesn’t make you richer by cutting 2000 tier 5 basic catalyst from our rewards Kabam. It just make you looking bad.

    Compare these rewards to the occult labs that were 6 fights instead of 12... And each one gave a bonus crystal with decent rewards... That was worth it! These take way more time, are 12 fights and have no extra rewards... So no they aren't worth it regardless of your level

    To be fair not contest is bad here as it’s quite interesting - just rewards making it less attractive.

    I get that zero energy plus you can buy a lot of cubes but still

    Very easy content. If it’s difficult for you then it’s not meant for your level. Practice more and gather better champs. Feel like a chore? Then don’t do it, you lose nothing.

    Who said anything about hard .. this is an issue of cost vs rewards ... the time/energy spent isn't worth the rewards (for me anyway) . if it is for you, great .. ;)
  • AndrewkoleAndrewkole Posts: 196
    you also get 10 entries per day. I play the epic. If i start bad or dont like my matchups I just quit and start again. You can quit 8 times and still complete both paths.

    Completed epic everyday 100pc. Though still feel rewards isn't worth the effort. Kabam could have done better

    Takes way too long and is way too RNG dependent. Kabam turned a pretty fun idea into an absolute slog.

    Is it tedious? Yes. Boring? Kinda. Easy? Yes. Majority of people who complain can't complete the content.

    maybe there should be a "meh" option. i can complete the content, but a bit too much time. i tend to not do all of them all of the time.

    They're not free if you have to throw health potions at them.

    Too long but basically "free" stuff, you only need to roll few dice if you have a 5/65 roster. Not worthy with 4/55
  • MauledMauled Posts: 329 ★★
    Depends entirely on what your roster is to be honest. I smash through master with absolutely no problems but I need my full crew available to be guaranteed success in epic (that consists of up to 4 R5 5*)

    I think that Epic is a little bit too highly tuned for what you get - it's not worth spending resources on for the rewards and I feel for what is a fun little side quest you shouldn't have to spend resources to hit the top difficulty unless you've got a maxed out team.
  • Wozzy101Wozzy101 Posts: 199 ★★
    The poll options are a little biased. 2 options which are both the rewards are an absolute joke, or the rewards are amazing. I don’t think the rewards are amazing but they’re not an absolute joke.

    I think the rewards are alright, nothing that’s earth shattering or game breaking. Master rewards are cumulatively good, epic not the best but ok.
    Personally I don’t push to 100% epic but try it and complete every other day without using resources. It’s a good test of skill and think helps on the journey to “get gud”.

    I’m not a fan of the everyday quests that refresh. This game already has so much you have to do to progress or keep up, you HAVE to be on on every day

    I prefer that they add up all the rewards and have a single quest with paths and you only have to do it once.

    Epic Chaos node, anti heal, and heal inverse? Man that's so cool to play it!

    I have to disagree with this. I consider myself a very good player and have used no items to complete any paths so far and these still feel like a chore. Also there is no completing epic in 2 minutes. It's typically anywhere from 5-10 minutes per path depending on nodes.

    My dislike of this event has nothing to do with "gitting gud" and everything to do with the content itself being an absolute bore. It feels like more "meh" content that is very repetitive despite the advertised "randomness."

    These poll options are hilarious.

    Agree. These rifts are challenging. And as much as I hate to say it. Well, unfortunately the rewards are not bad at all. considering doing Epic and Master one can get around 600-650 5 star shards (per day), 1300 Tier 2 Alpha and 40 Tier 5 basics.

    Once again they are challenging. i can Quake my way out of most of them, but for the majority of the people, I;m not even sure if they can do all of them because all uncollected are eligible for it.

    Post a video of you clearing one path of epic in 2 mins or else stop exaggerating your skills with Ghost and Hype in every post.

    And if in any probability is it true then you know this game is not designed to only fit your progress. Now you may stand in top 5% and you want to force ppl who enter the game after you to get good and get god tier champs like you to defeat the monthly content which is normally not designed to be this extraordinarily difficult. Many elder bane players struggle a lot with this quest I guess.

    So far, there were 2 days I couldn't 100% epic, I have no 5/65 but lucky to have Ghost like you (though nowhere to be near 2 mins for 1 path completion) and refuse to use items except randomizers for this quest. But I think ppl have their valid reason to be against labs this month, one of which is you have to play quite much for everyday in 28 days. If Kabam cannot create a consistent difficulty in monthly EQs then they should adjust rewards based on variation of effort required to complete them.

    This - not that I want to cheese anything but it's way too hard in epic unless you have a roster stacked with (the right) 5/65s.

    My only complaint, esp with epic, is the small amount of rewards for the challenge. If they want to make it that difficult then at least increase rewards a little.

    I’m not pretending I talk for everyone but is the goal of these side quests really to make the player base disengage? Sounds like a pretty bad business strategy.

    The obvious goal of the quests is to appeal to players that want more challenging content. And the rewards aren't as bad as some people are claiming. I'm earning 5* shards much faster through the labs than I do through, say grinding arena. Grinding arena is the easy but slow way to do that. The labs, as long as they are (and I think they are probably too long by a couple fights per path), are the difficult but fast way to get similar rewards. That is a reasonable trade to me in general. Again: I'm not saying the content is perfect, I'm saying it does appeal to some players and it does have reasonable rewards compared to other repeatable alternatives.

    And giving those kinds of options to the players willing to take advantage of them is in fact a pretty reasonable game operation strategy. It would be a bad business strategy to completely ignore that subset of players.

    It's a real luck of the draw. Theoretically rewards are good daily rewards for master, but not for the effort involved in epic. You can have so many bogus roles that some times it is impossible to do. Just too time consuming for best champs on a daily basis for rewards. I feel the should have cut the number of champs down by half, doubled the 6* shards and added in some 5 star sig stones. There is such a small window with aw and aq to do them too.
