    I was never cool with it in the past but no one ever seemed to want to talk about the issue because so many were happy with the double dip and the new feeder that any talk of fairness in how it was rolled out was always just 'wait and one day you'll get yours when your roster gets there'.

    It's worse now that ever before because it's not just 6 LT's that got changed. It's 16 rewards that got changed for the shards so in addition to the 6 LT's is also 60 cps. It's become worse than it was in terms of unfairness.

    So you're upset with the developers' decision that practically slows down everyone's progress and how they changed the rules. Let's focus on how to improve that.

    The developers seem to consider that the introduction of the shards would be sufficient to replace the LTs, CPs and HPs. Let's tell them that they aren't. You want to be given the opportunity to grow your roster and that is taken away from you now. In fact, a lot of players' roster growth could be slower with these changes.

    Dwelling on what the retroactive rewards should or shouldn't be or whether they're fair or not isn't particularly useful. See my previous post about considering them a retroactive bonus. The qualifier for getting the bonus was reaching the levels where the champion rewards were changed to specific covers. Therefore, there was an incentive to reach those specific levels and those who haven't reached the levels were not qualified to get the bonus. They're not like Christmas bonuses that are usually given out equally. Complaining to the company that our colleagues should get their bonus reduced or they need to return their bonus is probably not the best action to take. Find a way to get our bonus increased.

    These are not the same characters? Why does my Magik 370 not gain the same reward as My CapAmerica Worthy 370 you ask?
    You're comparing your apples with other's pears?
    What brings us back to the statement :


    How can anybody have Ton of extra resources, you can't get, for doing the exact same thing?. That would be truly unfair.
    Like others mentioned, you, I and all players are not  doing the exact same thing. Otherwise it would be an homogeneously playerbase, where everybody has the same roster, the same speed in pve, the same points. Everybody would be same placement.

    I think your misunderstanding what I am writing. So let me put it another way.

    Say we both start a 3 day PvE event. Part of the day 2 progression is 8 cp (CL7). You wake up at 6 am and do your clears and in the process get 8 cp. At 10 am D3 suddenly announces the 8 cp reward is going to be replaced by a 4* cover. Then they award everyone who already passed the 8 cp point a 4* cover in addition to the 8 cp they already got.  Now I play at noon and only the the 4* cover. Am I wrong is asking why they are getting the 8 cp AND the 4* cover or why I am also not getting the 8 cp? It's progression.

    But that's not how it goes, they won't change reward mid events. 
    Yeah you're wrong cause. The announcement would be before to clarify for everybody that after the event ends everybody reached the 8 Cp would rewarded an additional 4*. If you're not reaching that point you did not play to that reward. 

    Your complain goes , you didn't receive the reward the first time cause you didn't play, but in the new event you reached it and now you're complaining that you didn't get your reward from the first event.

    The "double dipping" is more like how subsequent event runs will have fewer rewards than they did at launch. See: Sakaar Arena run 1 + 2
    Places of Power run 1 + 2
    etc

    If you were there for the first run, you had a better shot than people who were there for a re-run.

    Makes me nostalgic for the first run of galactus. Not everything was better first time around. 

    Just sayin 😂

    So the main "Benefit" of switching to shards as champ rewards was that "If you are a little tight on roster slots, you can save them for later" about a direct quote from IceX's post, but the first feeder reward is still a cover not shards. So by the time you have enough shards for a cover you've either already lost one cover or you don't need to save the shards. 

    Look I'd be more ok with this change if you did remove covers completely and replaced the first cover with the shard equivalent. 
    As someone with everyone rostered (privilege), I never thought of that. Really good point!

    I’ve been thinking a bit about it, and it does kind of lower the threshold to complete a 5* youre also chasing directly. Unclear exactly how meaningful that is going to be in practice compared to the resource loss.

    Well, if they aren't going to do anything with supports, maybe they can replace the red iso with our missing HP and CP.

    They balanced the rewards table by taking away rewards from the top end players that the masses wouldn’t reach often and increasing (or colorlessing) rewards that the masses would more easily reach.  

    Except...why is that necessary?  Instead of removing rewards just put them at the end of the reward chain.  Shift the 4* cp to the last levels between 360 and 370.  That way the whales are made whole, and the masses who are benefitting from colorless covers won’t ever see those rewards earned back without spending.

    Explain to me how is it possible that 3* Thanos primary feed isn't Nebula? 

    And, I know it's a minor gripe, but it would be cuter if Star*Lord and Gamora fed each other, the way 3* Gambit feeds Rogue and Rogue feeds 5* Gambit.
