  • I didn't clock that there wasn't a change in whitelist for Expert Tier. If I were you I'd confirm it's a typo, because you're right, it should be Kingpin.
  • It's based on data collection. Kushala and Bishop had the highest ban rate at Elite tier, so therefore blacklist. Bishop and Iceman at Expert Tier and Iceman at Challenger Tier, same deal. These are not conspiracy theory, anti-player style decisions in the background. It has been and continues to be entirely based on what…
  • Your point about the purpose of the blacklist/whitelist having evolved is correct, but I don't agree that it's a bad thing. It's less relevant in the first season, which is usually the learning period where people get to understand how the tactic works and who is good without having a blacklist that impacts the tactic…
  • Kingpin wasn't Blacklisted in the Elite tier last season, it was Ghost and Scorpion. That's why.
  • Then Path Split. Have someone take section 1 then go do a different path in section 2 and someone else take a different path in section 1 and take section 2. It's a team game mode, coordinate, plan, and work as a team. That's war.
  • Bluntly, you are not forced to use Tactic Attackers against Non-Tactic defenders. Especially on Path 9, War is about finding the right balance between Tactic and non-tactic. I by no means am trying to make it sound easy, but there's a reason why planning wins wars almost as much as performing wins wars.
  • Champs still in the pool who work for Hazard Shift: Both Sections: Destroyer, Dragon Man, Kushala, Sauron, Black Widow CV, Havok, Colossus, Dust, White Tiger if there's lots of buffs, Emma Frost with enough practice. Section 1 Specifically: Void, Toad, Werewolf By Night Section 2 Specifically: Gambit, Man-Thing, Storm X,…
  • Thresholds being scaled down just means you need less than before to get the additional benefits. You hit the confidence threshold sooner and it means in your first fight/with an unduped gladiator, your Limit is not also the same amount you need for Ultra Confidence, i.e. more wiggle room. With that in mind, he actually…
  • I think all of these changes would alter the game mode too much, and I'll explain why I think that. Having all 14 revives available right away goes directly against the intention of the game mode. It's a week long event to chip away at, not something to just rush to get it over with. I do however understand the pain point…
  • Thank you! I'm always worried to post on forums because I get concerned about posts getting lost, but after speaking with some people this was what they recommended as the best way to get it to the people who I'd like to see it.
  • I've thought about this and I kind of agree. Maybe a solo milestone based on how much health you take down would be nice, but I'd rather some of the other problems of the mode get addressed before the rewards do.
  • Respectfully, I don't agree with the statement that teamwork is not a nice thing. What's the point of having an alliance beyond extra rewards at that point? I have personally missed an alliance feeling like an alliance when it comes to content outside of War. They added solo incursions because it wasn't enjoyable that you…
  • Hard agree. It's by far the worst Tactician and arguably the worst of the 9. Gorr is for the most part fine, you're right. The reason why I said that he's minorly impacted is because of the Shock debuffs having reduced duration, it basically makes it very hard to get use out of a third of his debuffs. I'm glad to hear that…
  • Sure. But there's bound to be people who will just purchase without realizing and/or people who will complain because there wasn't a spot to buy for 10k. The purpose of my post was to remind people that Kabam has told us where to find the two 10ks, that's all. Hopefully will cut down on the complaints and tickets filed a…

  • Quite a few actually. I'd say the ones that fit both criteria best are Dragon Man, Overseer, Bishop, America Chavez, Mantis, Gorr, Terrax, Sasquatch, Wiccan, Joe Fixit and there's arguments for Iron Man IW, Mysterio, Shuri post buff and Guilly99
  • I wanted to avoid rankings while making this just because they're so subjective, just makes for less argument between myself and other creators
  • I realized the wide version wasn't as good a resolution as I thought, here's the individual ones.
  • This is great, and kind of highlights why I'm happy about the direction Gold is going. Glad someone took the time to break it all down.
  • And what do you believe is required to get out of the bottleneck in this case?
  • 1. There are 50 summoners of higher progression levels in this game that are either experiencing what I'm experiencing or have noticed what I've noticed. That may not be large, but it's people I've had direct interactions with that have the same problems. Unless I've spoken to the only TB and Paragon summoners that have…
  • I don't have the reach or the time to try to gather data from hundreds or thousands of Summoners. If you have an idea to do so, I'm all ears.
  • I like the idea a lot. I'll track throughout the month of January and maybe onward, but this would be a good idea to have more data behind the argument. Thank you for the suggestion!
  • How does a batch of 50 or so Thronebreaker/Paragons fare? Regardless of how many people I've spoken to, it doesn't take a lot to realizing that prioritizing Iso is extremely hard to do compared to prioritizing other rank up materials, Gold included.
  • Absolutely. It's becoming harder and harder to do so unfortunately with how easy rank up materials are to get.
  • I agree, but 2 months ago was a different story, which is why I said I'm happy with the direction Kabam has gone with gold. When the amount we got from Act 7 and 8 paths hadn't changed over 4 chapters whereas the t2a and t5b doubled, then it was problematic. It's much better now.
  • There's bound to be exceptions to the rule. I've spoken to a large of amount of people who are in a similar position in terms of roster progression who either don't spend or spend only on certain holidays and they've agreed. I don't mean to assume everyone has the problem and I apologize it came off that way, but it is…
  • Thank you for catching that! Just fixed it now.
  • This wouldn't be enough unfortunately. The case example needs to be Knull and Hercules. If Juggernaut can't take those two on because of their unique non damaging debuffs, then it's a problem.
  • Noticing a lot of people asking for additional things to make him a tougher defender. Remember what John said; they have to be careful with buffs of older champs because that's who newer players will be fighting until they're uncollected at the absolute earliest. They have to tow a line between making him easily beaten by…
