Kabam definitely had lightning in a bottle with their most successful game, Marvel: Contest of Champions [Free]. It has been a resounding success since its birth on the App Store in 2014. However, now that it is nearing its official 3 year mark, many of the game's veteran players have been complaining about its lack of end-game content. It seems as though Kabam has come up with their solution to the aforementioned problem.

Kabam recently released news that 6-star champions will be added to the game in the near future.  This will dramatically effect the game in a variety of ways, such as 4/5-star champions becoming easier to attain, duplicates of 5-star champions granting 6-star shards, 4/5-star rank-up materials becoming more obtainable, and an entirely new arena being added exclusively for 6-star champions. Players will be able to collect 6-star shards after August 30th in order to prepare for the release of 6-star Hero crystals. It will take a total of 10,000 shards to buy one 6-star crystal when they become available sometime in 2018.

In the meantime, feel free to check out the "Sinister Foes of Spider-Man" Event Quest. Dr. Octopus is the main villain this week and is available (along with the Green Goblin) in Egomaniac crystals.
