    Ok, now I’m reaallyy peeved! I’m at work, teaching young hooligans to write essays, and shardmas II is happening. I won’t be home for 4 more hours! How dare D3 not care for and feed me because I play their game! What is the world coming to. ( yes I could play at work, but when I played on two devices, I lost a lot of stuff.)

    Got my 904 rewards today.  Very happy with the results even though it took some time.  

    Thanks to my fellow players for voicing you concerns as loud as we did over the many different platforms that it took for this to be fixed.

    Did anyone get retroactive shards for Spiderman Black Suit from Infinity war spidey? I earned 12 covers but didn't get the 500 backlogged shards to make 13 😞
    Nothing changed in infinity war spidey's rewards so there were no retroactive rewards for black suit spidey.

    I was very glad to receive these rewards today.  I just need a few million iso to champ everybody and take advantage of all the rewards...

    Thanks for the great second roll-out. It felt a bit like Shardmas: First Anniversary edition, which is a good thing.

    Not had time to visit the forums for a few days; just caught up on the backlog of posts.
    Adding my thanks to the rest of the thread; appreciate you listening and making this strong goodwill gesture.
    The only feedback I'd give is echoing some of the posts in this thread hoping that there have been lessons learned both with regards to communication and the balance between chasing income and making the game rewarding for the player base (from F2P to whales).
    It will be interesting to see when shards enter other parts of the game (progression/placement rewards, vaults etc.) whether this drives a change in policy.

      I just wanted to say thank you again for reconsidering and giving the people who have spent countless hours growing their rosters, get a chance to see their hard work be rewarded.  Because of that, I bumped up my regular $2 monthly spend this month to a VIP purchase.

    I'm surprised more people have not mentioned the CP/HP discrepancy previously offered as champion rewards vs. what is now being offered. I know it sounds like crying over spilt milk, but we're exponentially worse off than before and while I'm pleased retroactive shards were awarded, I'm still unsure if this whole revolution of in game rewards is actually a good thing or not. 
    I think a lot of people are waiting for the final-ish info on the event rewards.

    I am trying to decide how much losing the champ reward HP/CP changes your game when you consider that you use those resources, mostly, for chasing covers.

    HP for newer rosters is a big hit when there are 201 characters, for sure.

    But getting shards spread out is a little better in the age of dilution in terms of getting a cover faster vs the old "need to hit 320" break point (or whatever level you needed).  Especially when you combine a fed person with targeting them.

    Is it all worth it?  Is it enough?  I don't know.

    I mean what will you do anyway? They drew down the rewards.  Are you quitting over that?  

    They do (maybe) take action on some things we complain about, but they've not materially increased in game rewards in 2 years (other than now shards, however you judge that).  So even if we all started posting  over and over about how much we want that HP and CP back, do you for one second think they will say "oops,  you guys are right, here you go!"?  Do you?  Cause I sure as heck don't.  You can post here every stinking day about being mad they took a few hundred HP and 40 CP or whatever out of the cycle of max champing a 3 or 4 and they won't make one change unless, I guess,  we all said we aren't spending any money until they put it back in and the buy clubs shut down and we review bomb it to 1 * again.  But I don't think enough people really care, and the high end vets and whales are swimming in HP most of the time and CP isn't that super hard to build up when you want to.

    So that isn't happening. So you adapt to the new normal or you decide you've had enough and walk away to one of the thousands or millions of other things you can do with your free time.  That's all you can do.
