    Commanders,

    Due to a technical issue, the release of these Away Missions will be delayed a short while. We're don't expect it to be long, and still hope to get them out today.

    Thank you for your patience.

    No rush we want to keep the arena crystals, and still get new Stuff
    Gonna be blunt here. That's not going to happen. There are already many ways to get Energon in the game, and this doesn't have to be another one of them. You're going to see more and more specialization of rewards in certain modes, and Away Missions are going to be geared towards Gold and Ore, with some chances at Bot Crystal Shards and Chips.

    @Kabam Miike no rush..

    you guys still haven't answered us about raid chips either..

    You are punishing the player base who have stuck around during Reforged season..
    No Raid Chips. Those can be found by Raiding Bases.

    Can you confirm that these new ones will give t4c shards or essence? I know small chance at it but it was fairly vague, t4b, class, t3a didnt exactly say t4c I think people assumed t4c was included but I'm not so sure...I know either way it's a small chance but doesnt sound to me like t4c will be in there
    Yes! That should have read "T4 Basic, T4 Class, and T3 Alpha"

    We also forget that Bot Chips are readily available in Away Missions now, and that by accumulating them, you can get 3*/4*/5* bots guaranteed. In other words, you don't need Energon to get higher order bots, which is the reason most of us want the Energon, right? (I like a guaranteed higher star bot a lot better than the PBC spin, praying for a 4* Bot, only to settle for a 2* Grindor most of the time.)

    for active players, this is further from the truth and why we're upset with this change. no legit active player that is trying to move up is spending their energon on bot crystals. we save energon so we can use it to help us get over roadblocks in the game.

    “I felt a great disturbance in the force, as if a thousand voices cried out in anguish, and were suddenly silenced.”
    I feel this quote adequately describes what the player base feels about the loss of arena crystals.

    Since we are getting less energon they’ll offer meh deals like this just to drain your energon so when you need it to buy t4c or whatever you want then you will have to buy it.
    Be aware.

    They don’t have to be so mean. They just need to sell T4c directly in store for cash. I would buy it

    This, I'm actually happy about. Never did those anyway.
    And as I've said before, the removal of easy energon makes business sense. Just please, while these changes and tweaks are being made, can we also get some real new content? Perhaps that is easier said than done, but it would go a long way in giving people faith. Maybe not so many people would feel like they're being kicked time and again.

    We want more revive kits to compensate lack of energon

    Then how will we get gold that won’t cost Energon or £££

    Yeah... active players know that energon is NOT for buying pbc or bot crystals.

    "Many ways to get Energon in the game":
    1) 10 energon for completing daily activities
    2) 15 energon for daily ads (3x 5 each)
    3) 25 energon for completing all milestones within monthly Gold arena... much grinding basically.
    4) 100 energon for monthly calendar (10, 20, 30, 40 weekly progression)
    5) ... that's it, right?

    Now, let's compare that to the cost of any item in the store?

    Sorry but you missed so many. Spotlight level completions and explorations. Arenas. Gold bounty rank rewards.
  • We were able to fix our technical issue with the new Away Missions. You'll be seeing those going live now, but please note that some of you may still see some of the older Away Missions still active for a few sets. This is completely normal. They'll eventually weed out as sets roll over into new.

    Press F to pay respects to arena crystals.

    Kabam, you sure know how to aggravate your players. Here’s to hope that this signals changes for the better.

    I’d say we’re off to a good start.
    Quite impressed Kabam.
    Less than 2k gold & only 2.5 hrs.
    It’s almost negligible cost & time.
    Well Worth the trade off for arena crystals.

    WOW
    WHO CARES ABOUT THE OLD CRYSTALS, EVERY MISSION IS A FRIGGIN JACKPOT

  • Jazz444Jazz444 Posts: 2,020
    Wow I can’t wait to start getting these new missions
  • Ok, now that people have had their moment to complain about arena crystals being removed, I must thank Kabam for these new T3 ore crystals. Wow, I wasn't expecting these rewards from an 11 minute away mission. Thank you Kabam.
  • KittenKitten Posts: 1,879
    Arena crystals will be thoroughly missed, however this update is so much better, so both sorry and thanks from me, Kabam!
