The game team has resolved this issue. Keys will be distributed via in-game messages and the quest timer will be extended.
More information and timeline here.
*This includes currently unclaimable keys as well*
As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.


  • are we talking about the semi blank screen where there are a bunch of 7s across the top? i haven't been able to make any progress since about halfway thru the absorbing man arena. pretty disappointed as that is a character i was hoping to acquire..
  • If you get him you’re a genius. If you don’t...well...you’re the opposite of a genius lol
  • I don’t even know where to start with how backward your mentality is. I guess just consider that this is a unit deal. You can’t normally buy the stuff in the deal with units. Yet you can buy gold anytime with golden crystals. Not sure what would make you happy here. Just adding a couple hundred thousand gold and keeping…
  • I’m not impressed by new backgrounds. I am impressed that someone is still using the word “props” tho.
  • The calculation for war mvp Is a joke at best. It’s like that stupid 🏆 in the bottom right corner that calculates the strongest team.
  • The cost of the crystal seems on par with the odds. I get offers for a 4* crystal sometimes after opening some PHC. That costs 2500 units. You want a guaranteed 4* from 10 FGMC? Ok so let’s count one of the crystals as any 4* - so that leaves 9. Essentially that means you’re asking for 9 - yes 9 - chances at a featured 5*…
  • Just started for me last night. Was wrapping up the BPCW challenge and suddenly was getting star lords sp2 blocked. I ran a line in chapter 5 this morning and it happened repeatedly. Back to chaos mode of adjusting to the ups and downs in this game.
  • Chapter 1 doesn't even come close to preparing you for chapter 2. The life transfer in chapter 1 allows you to use almost any team you can throw together. Just completing chapter 2 will be a miracle for you. But go ahead and give it a shot. If you're patient it will be great practice for you.
  • For all you guys saying it was easy or very easy (lol yeah right - very easy means you can auto-fight thru) I would love to see proof that you did this challenge without dying or item usage. That would define easy. Stop saying things are easy when you're using pots and boosts to get you thru it or getting ko'd and starting…
  • Path F has that link on it that debuffs BPCW. Since that link is showing in your pic and he's under 30k rated you clearly didn't take path F. 😘
  • I ranked ww2 ages ago when I was new and I took advice from my alliance. Absolutely hated him. Once I learned how to evade/intercept his block proficiency was pretty useless and that's all he's got going for him. Immediately ranked him down at 12.0. YJ is way better imo
  • Hey I don't blame you for letting those expire. Only one worth rank 4 is sl and you obviously would've done that if you could've.
  • I just had to rank up juggs due to expiring resources after having him forever and never ranking him. That's the name of the game. You are saving resources for champs you don't have because you don't like the ones you are dealt. That's a risk. You could choose to work with what you got - also a risk. You may use resources…
  • There are many other games out there with much smaller revenue streams that have a multiplayer function with little to no lag. No legitimate reason these guys can't make it happen.
  • Are we recruiting or just pushing legit posts onto page 2 here?

  • Let me guess. You have 9 alt accounts with tens of thousands of fights on them. Meaning you have WAY more experience than a normal level 39 with one account. Nice try. 😘
  • I definitely understand what OP means. Don't listen to the guys telling you it's not for medium players. The key to this challenge is to do the easiest path - the very first portal jump - and then skip right to the boss. This should be fairly easy and you will at least get the completion rewards. After that, when you are…
  • Kabam has nothing to do with your luck. Thanks for spam tho :]
  • There's no complaint about the difficulty of the content per se. The point is simple for those of us who have been in the game a while. We have been asking for buffs for some of these champs for a long period of time and they refuse...only focusing on releasing new champs and ignoring old ones. Then they release a quest…
  • Game has ALWAYS been like this. I remember when I first started you were considered strong if you had 4 stars at rank 4. But back then I couldn't get to 1.1 million in arena for a t4b and I couldn't do map 5. Heroic quest was a STRUGGLE! So it was the same thing then. Strong got those rewards and the weak didn't or had to…
  • I pulled 3 random posts from the main page of the forums and each one has a response from kabam wolf/miike. Hubris I really wish you would just stop. Just stop derailing legitimate threads with your speculation and unsubstantiated claims. You constantly just spew opinions that you try to word in a way that makes them seem…
  • So you have time to determine that the OP used the wrong category so you clearly read the question OP has. You then take the time to post an explanation for moving it then move it to the correct category but somehow you can't give any response whatsoever to the OPs question? Lately I'm left wondering what is the point of…
  • Don't even post your score and then directly attack a legitimate observation on the reality of arena grinding. Arrogant much?
  • Evade has always made me wonder why there's no negative attached to it. When a champ like Spiderman evades on the 1st hit he can essentially go from taking 5 hits of damage to punching you in the face. That has always tripped me out with how overpowered that is! It would make sense if there was a small negative like a…
  • Hey I totally empathize with you. Unfortunately a post like this in the forum will mostly garner responses from the cool kids who like to talk down to people who struggle with content that they find easy. I have long had a problem with the "recommended" team rating. Common sense would tell you that kabam tested that…
  • Blade is just the flavor of the moment. It will change. Once they over-sell him, they will create content/characters that makes him less effective. How many times does kabam have to change the carrot you are chasing to realize....there will simply always be a carrot.
  • So we have two posts from you in this thread. The first post says a fix is coming. The second says it's working. Does that mean the fix went thru at some point between your posts? Thanks for a your anticipated prompt response to this.
  • Literally just whiffed in an arena fight against medusa. I'm using 5* duped unstoppable colossus. Not sure how to get video. Could you please advise where to find a fight recorder in the game please?
  • Energy refills are their biggest income stream? Do you have any evidence to back that up?
  • Why would kills count? The only ones getting any kills in the current war is the boss tile and maybe the mini boss tiles. It's total bs that the leaders can just put themselves on those tiles and then do mediocre in attack phase and they will get MVP. Clearly it doesn't mean that much. I killed an entire line, part of a…
