v6.1 Discussion Thread

Commanders!

Version 6.1 is slated for release later this week! This relatively small update features a refresh of Alliance Mission Crystals, as well as the Daily and Free Crystals!

Before you ask, Crystals that you hoarded will not be updated! Only New Crystals acquired after the Update will feature these new items.

We'll have a full breakdown of the Crystal updates for you all soon, but in the mean time, take a look at the Patch notes here: http://forums.transformersforgedtofight.com/discussion/comment/35911/#Comment_35911

    This is great (and long overdue) news!

    That said, any chance of a new map later in the month or swapped out bots and/or mods on the old map or anything that will make the same map we've been running for 4 months now feel not so stale?

    Will Energon Storm finally be fixed?

    Looking forward to seeing what reward updates the crystals, ranks and milestones will be. Not gonna lie though, that was pretty low making it so those of us who saved our crystals couldn't get the newest rewards coming out. :/

    Just more proof that they can and do look at your account and other meta data when opening crystals even if the official stance is that they don't.

    Nice to see the increase in rewards though. Hope it's a nice big juicy boost :)

    ARMOR RATINGS!?!
    I really don't think it's too much to ask to see this info.

    So do you mean these crystals or the daily Alliance ones? Because these arent actually crystals yet, thats just the currency to buy the crystals.
  • Darm0kDarm0k Posts: 690
    I wonder how they’re going to differentiate between oldcrystals and new? The have the drop rate info and I’m assuming that’ll change if they update the rewards. That means the drop rates won’t match the old crystals and then that may go against Apple’s rules (at least on the iOS side).

    Maybe they’ll just create a new Ancient Sanctum crystal with a new name to make the rewards different. The only thing with that is if your current shards don’t hit an even 2000, you’ll have extra left over that you can’t use.
  • As I read it here the Alliance Mission Crystals (those you earn shards towards from AM) daily crystals (both standard and alliance daily crystals) and free crystals (4hr crystal)

    But in the link it sounds more like only the free Alliance Daily, regular Daily and 4hr crystal. However AM rank and milestones have been updated which leads me to believe they are updating the AM crystal as well. Just not worded clear, except for the hoarded crystals will not be updated just crystals moving forward.

    And if you have shards in excess of a full crystal they may just be applied towards the new crystal or they will eventually just dissapear or be converted to something else as with previous updated crystals.

    The new crystals will have a new name (Ancient Sanctum Crystal 2.0) and use new Shards (Ancient Sanctum 2.0 Crystal Shards). So, they're completely brand new!

    The new Crystals will use new Crystal Shards, so those old Crystal Shards will not be able to get you the updated rewards.

    No T4b essences for rank rewards? :neutral:
  • Jay32Jay32 Posts: 95
    Still no reason to push in AM. Would have thought for sure they're was gonna be T4b.
  • Mufc14Mufc14 Posts: 236
    It is better than nothing but still not worth spending energon to push higher, unfortunately we will wait for months before they reconsider it again.

    What's the point of competition if you're just gonna group ranks together? It's basically you guys handing out participation tropies and pissing away peoples efforts to push higher levels and to get better as an alliance.

    While we understand why this might upset Alliances in first place, this was a measure we had to take because of the disparity of points between 1st place and 2nd place. At this time, there is simply no competition for 1st Place, while the competition for 2-10 is very close.

    This change is to promote more healthy competition, and not to quell it. It’s to prevent a situation where there is no way that other alliances can ever catch up.

    Healthy competition? Let's just use football as an example, that's like giving the other team a 21 point lead to start the game. To the victor goes the spoils. This shouldn't be like Oprah where everyone gets a car. If people want to catch up get better and push yourself as an individual and an alliance. Changes are gonna have to be made to drop players that can't keep up but it's nothing the top alliances haven't done and have been dealing with since the start of the game. Minimal efforts for the same rewards is trash no matter how it's said.

    Lmao there’s no competition for 1st cause there’s simply no reason to compete for it.

    LOL @Kabam Miike you serious? Straight calling a brother out
  • ToughTough Posts: 84
    the rewards for first place wasn’t worth competing for. Therefore no competition for rank 1. We all expected some big jump for 1-3 rank rewards so we can start pushing for rank one. Oh well, looks like we will all be sitting boringly.
  • ToughTough Posts: 84
    See to it you guys decide to add a Rank 1,2, and 3 reward otherwise we will just settle on a difficulty,one that’s not too high and one that’s not too low. to prevent bottom alliances on sneaking up. This is just an opportunity for the top 3 to not be competitive at all. Sit on a difficulty and enjoy your day.

    I can't believe this is the actual reasoning. Kabam is so out of touch with what the community has been asking for that as a high level AM player this whole thing is just frustrating. The reason why people didn't even bother with rank 1 is because the rewards for it were just garbage to begin with since after and even before the anniversary update.

    We have been asking for something for players to strive for to spur competition, and here Kabam is just making rank 1 completely redundant. Making the rewards for rank 2 and 3 the same, sure I could take that, but including rank 1 to that bracket just doesn't make sense. Just as Toughnut said, the top 3 alliances can just fix the whole thing and be content with how they lay it out because there's no point in climbing higher as it just serves to create an oligarchy of some sort for high level AM.

    Might as well go back to retirement.

    Well said That1guy, i’m really disappointed.
