Tier 4 Basic

@Kabam Miike @Kabam Vydious

Considering the update to away missions and the general opening up of upgrading bots, which I totally agree with, it seems like it's time to add a bit more t4b to the game. Currently I'm maxed out on t3a and will continue getting more while there is a huge lack of t4b available to upgrade.

I feel like more could be added to the raid store (daily would great since the t3b is very outdated) but at least more on rotation, they should definitely be added as a drop in AM crystals, and/or update selling t3b to 100 shards instead of 60.

I would expect that other veterans have hit a similar wall and it seems odd that it's t4b that's lacking and not t3a.

    Yep, this conversation just happened in our ally chat, everyone is low on T4 basics

    Been like this for a while even before the away mission updates. Would love more ways to earn some T4B.

    (Waiting for the T4B offer that's now cued up thanks to this forum 😂)

    Ya I’ve had more T3 Alpha then T4 Basic for a long time it’s hard to keep T4 Basic in my storage cause 5*s use so many

    Exactly! Everyone is in need of t4b and finds there aren't enough ways of obtaining it. Moreover according to drop rate samples provided in another thread, you are likely to get more t4c essence than t4b in the god crystals. Something just doesn't look right.

    @KillMasterC @Jazz444 it's PURE RNG.
    My ratio of T4B to T4e is probably 7:1.
    Even during Kabam's oops phase, it was 4:1.

    Heck i get way more T3C than any type of alpha. If at all.

    Still superb for 400 gold!

    Seems like the only way to burn through t4b and not t3a is to be r2ing every 5* in your roster. Once you've r2d all your cincos, then the burn rate of t4b to t3a should equalize. Am I on the right track?

    Going to R2 doesn't take any T4B. Then you just need more and more T4B. Going to R5 takes up 3.
  • Faithz17Faithz17 Posts: 692
    From spotlight and AM, we get 1 T3A for every 2 T4B approximately. To R5 a bot, you need 3 T3As and 6 T4Bs. Problem comes when you have more bots you want to R3 or R4 that can’t go to R5 yet. I currently have 4 T4Cs I can’t use because I have 1 T4B. I need 12 T4Bs to use them all. I have T3A expiring and another one soon to form. I have been selling T3Bs too but still not enough. Really do need more T4Bs.
  • JKLJKL Posts: 635
    I know we all need more but the bottleneck has to be somewhere.
  • Faithz17Faithz17 Posts: 692
    It’s weird that even T4C is not the bottleneck. We get 2 T4Cs in a month but only get 2 T4Bs from spotlight and 3 T4Bs from AM so 5 T4Bs in a month. To use 1 T4C you need 6 T4Bs. Plus have not factored in bots we may R3 or R4 as well. There’s an imbalance of T4Bs.

    Well it's different at the top. Have to look at it in a more general sense but more T4B in rank rewards or milestones would help.

    My mistake. R3 takes 1 t4b and no t3a. That would lead to an imbalance. I always end up with 2 or 3 t4bs in stash, and never any t3a. But I never have any bots worth ranking so mine is a different issue.

    Lol wow congrats you’re lucky at this point I’ll scrounge for any T4B essence I can find cause it’s hard to keep up with my T3 Alpha storage lol 😂

    We used to have (though very rare) away missions rewarding t3b/t3c/t2a essence along with the 4* bot shard missions. Now we have 5* shards as an upgraded version of 4* missions where as all those spark essence missions are wrapped into the God Crystals.They should be upgraded to t4c/t4b/t3a missions independently.

    I believe that's the whole point. Having at least one resource that is scarce. Till now almost every high tier resource was pretty out of reach for most besides the top tier AM alliances. Now they made all but the basic spark easy to get, but as far as basic T4 goes made it so that if you're able to explore master and do some T4 basic arena you're getting two full T4 basic sparks at least / month.

    They can't really make all materials available for grabs since no real new content is comming out anytime soon.

    I'm selling T4 basic as I can't get T4 Class
  • Bi1b0BagginsBi1b0Baggins Posts: 607
    IIRC in MCOC it was the t3b and t1a that were scarce. I'm sure that has changed since 6*s came out.

    I am fully aware of the point in keeping balance but it's the wrong resource. We already have t4c which prevents maxing bots and t3a for minimizing the number of r4 bots. It should be the same as the old t3b and t2a balance.
  • Hol up there's a chance for t2a in the ore crystals? The only things I've ever gotten are t3b, ore, gold, and t3c, I didn't even know

    I’d venture to say I’ve pulled about 12-15 T2A since the Ore-13 crystals launched.

    Damn that's lucky. Instead I'm awkwardly sitting on 2 extra warrior and 1 extra demo t3c spark bc I don't have the t2a to use them with on rank-ups.

    Can I have some? XD
  • Weather update: Got 2 T2A out of the next batch of 50 crystals so I finally have a surplus. Also got 2 more demo and 1 more warrior spark in surplus that I hope I'll have the resources to use/bots to use it on in 13 days
