  • That time was called "the time before seasons." It was season rewards that shifted the balance of war, where it used to be just another game mode you could do, or not do, at will. Now it is a long season grind and the rewards are backloaded into s…
  • That's backwards. The content in the game is scaled to challenge the power that players wield. There was nothing to challenge 4* champs until 5* champs became common. If and when the devs introduce 7* champs, the highest difficulty content will b…
  • They might not have halted those champions, but as the whole point was to be a tie in to the movie, that in effect was a blown tie in. To put it another way, a player might think that was a success because they got champions they wanted, but Marvel…

  • And I guess the fact that you can grind 12 in the arena every month and buy a ton of them with glory, and the fact that they've reduced the prices for T1A more than once, means Kabam is just extremely bad at making things rare.
  • Champions get designed months in advance and tie-in projects generally require that the studios and the game developers have a clear idea of what's happening when, but the schedule for Marvel projects has been completely blown in 2020 and even the T…

  • Its perfectly fine to like some parts of the game and not like others. It is also perfectly fine to advocate for changing things when you don't like them. But people have to understand that advocacy has limits. If you want Cloak and Dagger in the…
  • I presume it is a form of invisibility flagging where the poster can see their posts, but no one else can. I didn't know Youtube implemented that, but it is not uncommon on discussion forums. These forums have a form of invisibility when you excee…
  • And he can do the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.
  • Tier 10 and up its not uncommon because there are fewer alliances with the same approximate rating. The lower you go, the more alliances have similar rating and the less likely it gets to match another alliance twice in the same season. The higher…
  • Maybe because OP says he already has R5 Mags but no Sunspot. However, I have an R5 Mags and I just took my 6* to R3, because you can't have enough Magnetos.
  • A really big grain of salt. Too many expected values are too small, which would tend to invalidate chi-square, or at least make its results have too wide a margin for error to be meaningful. Even the full run will make chi-square a bit hazy for so…
  • I thought it was 28 runs. My recollection was the reward charts out there were presuming 28 runs with 7 rewards, for a total of 196 possible drops. There are ten possible drops, so 196 rolls is going to tend to average out relatively well, althou…
  • Actually, no I can't. I refreshed and resorted just to be sure, and this is the only one I see posted by the same name: Odd. Is there some YT setting somewhere that is causing YT comments to be filtered? If you log out and view the video anon…
  • This is the problem in a nutshell. People want nothing but good stuffs. You're not going to get nothing but good stuffs. You have a choice: random rewards that are sometimes good stuffs and sometimes bad stuffs, or fixed rewards that are always m…
  • Well... the season is over.
  • Apple is also not your friend and are a corporation trying to make money, and yet they limit the maximum transaction size for stuff like this to tier 60, aka $99.99 USD. This came up in a conversation I had recently, and it never occurred to me tha…
  • I went back to check just to see what the conversation looked like, and I cannot find a single post where this was explained in any detail. A couple people saying "that's not how it works" or mentioning price tiers, but I don't see anyone challengi…
  • Well, actually the item charts have not always been identical in all regions. I don't check them regularly, but players have actually reported here on the forums that sometimes the price of an item was different on the two different platforms. But…
  • It is completely normal that when someone is engaged in an activity they feel is completely uninteresting, their mind can become disengaged and that lack of focus combined with repetitive motions that require very little thought can combine to make …
  • Good a reason as any.
  • As previously mentioned, Kabam cannot set prices individually for different countries and regions. You can pick one country, say the US, and set the price there, but the Apple App Store (and the Google Play store) automatically sets the price in ev…
  • I think if a developer tried to lower the tier code for Odins the monetization people at Kabam would ask for their agonizer device.
  • The short answer is, Apple can't really prevent this in the general case, any more than Netflix can enforce their region blocking for content. It is probably prohibited by some term of service somewhere, but in practice this is hard to police. Whe…
  • My understanding, based on when alternate tiers first came out, “alternate tiers” are special price tiers, not alternate pricing. Meaning, separate from the standard tiers 1 through 90, there are also seven alternate tiers called alternate 1, 2, 3,…
  • That's promising, I guess.
  • I guess one of them found the thread and decided to disagree-bomb all of my posts in this thread. Which is pretty obvious when it happens to all the posts rapidly, and includes personal anecdotes involving tourists. It is a shame those guys can no…
  • I cross posted this to the Reddit, and a Redditor there tells me that in Australia prices must include a 10% Federal Goods and Services tax, whereas here in the US sales tax is added on top of the App store price. So assuming this is correct and ap…
  • Credit card companies don't generally care if you're right or wrong and generally do not investigate complaints: they'll probably just reverse any charges you ask them to up to a point. Kabam, however, will take any charges you reverse and apply ne…
  • Pretty sure most people do not know how this works. For example: This person thinks Kabam likes to make all their prices end in 9s. Of course, when it comes to USD pricing, all App Store prices end in 9s, because every price in the tier list e…
  • About ten years ago or so I met someone who flew from Australia to Hawaii for a vacation. While here, he bought some software he needed, including a suite of Adobe products. He told me the cost difference of the software in the US compared to Aust…
