Alpha Crap

Lotsa promoting the Alpha arena and when it comes along--crap prizes. Its an absolute waste of time unless you're one of the regular top 10% people that get all the big prizes. Seriously, 50 Alpha essence and one crystal that'll give barely 1,000 gold?! Why bother. It would be easier and quicker to burn through a set of raid tickets and get the 500 Alpha essence in the raid store. The top guys with the top bots are always going to get those A2 prizes. Giving everyone else a shot at it? Lol, not in the slightest.

    2% gives 2000 Alpha 2 essence. There are a lot of people in the top 2%. Almost all of those people do not get that much Alpha 2 essence in a whole weeks worth of AM.

    The rewards are fine.

    They should split arenas up by how long you've had your account. Asking new players to put up the same scores people from launch can is a bit backwards.

    Curious, define 'a lot'?

    From my calculation it's about 100 people.

    Per region. Or there about. So 300 total. That's 16 alliances worth. That's a lot more than currently get essence from AM. Heck it's more than I get from AM and I finished second.

    Why comparing these two? Announcing those reward-rich Arenas as an attraction, Kabam is supposed to give out MUCH more advanced resources. Not to mention that without enough gold, it is hard to bring up those new 4* babies.

    Try this: go unannounced. Like you did with the sudden reduction of alpha price from 18000 for 100 to 15000 decremented for 300, then 500. It should be less heart-breaking by not giving any hope.

    i agree that the amount of crystals you get anywhere out of 1-2% is extremely too low.
    how are people suppose to get gold these days?

    That is the key. The answer is one simple word: BUY.

    I was rank 26%-30%, and my reward was a measly 500 T1 alpha essence and a few thousand gold. 500?!? When people can steal over 4,000 from me in the time it takes me to finish just ONE series of fights? Garbage. I won’t bother next week.

    That’s a risk over reward situation, I have also just forged all bots so u just grind to get back up

    They don't need to do anything but put the arenas back the way they were. Although I like the new resources in the raid store, the guy who thought up this new arena gig should be fired.

    If you only put up enough points to reach 26-30% tier then you don't need T2 alpha anyway.

    It's the same argument over and over. People wanting what they simply do not need. In the case of the alpha arena, if you're needing T2 Alpha, then a single full run through with all bots will put you well over the 26-30% bracket. And that's just a single run through.

    If you forged all of your 3* bots into 4*(before someone makes this excuse) then you either have a massive 4* roster or you probably should have waited. Kabam should not alter the way something works because you took your roster of 30 bots and shrunk it to 12 because of forging.

    I remember when I started playing back at launch. I didn't care what rank I got in arena(except the CW Prime arena. Busted my butt for that 3* Prime and I got it). To me, and even now this applies, it's just earning free rewards. If I have time, I arena. If I don't I don't. But I'm not going to complain about what I get if I'm not willing to work to get it.

    You want top numbers and top prizes? Then you need to dedicate the same amount of time as the other people going for top.

    Once you're ready for alpha arena you'll easily get top 10%. That's the time when you'll really need them. Autoplay if u lack the time.. Don't complain just coz u can't get it, and as if everyone else has your same viewpoint.
  • Got my first ever 1000 T2A pieces from that arena, don't see a problem.
