They're giving away Antman and yellow jacket in versus arenas
Antman is ok. YJ is pretty legit tho.
Dupe him as many times as you can. That bio sting gets awesome. You'll never save for the l2 again.
I joined fellow nerds
So this matching system is annoying as fuck. On the 3 vs 3 arena, after about 7 straight wins they start pitting you against teams twice and 3 times more powerful. So characters with 3 bars I'm beating the shit outta them but they just activate that unblockable attack and I'm dead.
We are the same. I dominate anyone who doesn't more than double me in points in versus, but the game punishes you for beating teams at your level on a regular basis.
It's incredibly frustrating.
The only method I know to use against those characters is to goad them to use their special attacks at the first or second stage.
So this new Magneto 3v3 arena, I have to get 160,000 points just for a crystal that may or may not get me Magneto?
Play the new event quest. I got 3 premium crystals just by going thru it once. There's a bunch more for exploration rewards
nice! i've got 100% on part one, trying to wait for energy to come back
That event quest is hard as shit bc I still have shitty characters. No 4 star guys yet
me neither. only 3 three stars
Fuck this game. 6 hero crystals and the best I get is a 2* Ultron.
i think i'm about to dupe my white magneto. i'm kicking ass in the 2 star 3v3
i finished 161 for magneto!!
3 star or 4 star?
I have gone over 25 straight with all 2 star duplicates, it was terrible. I did have a hot streak sunday though. I opened 5 arena crystals and got 3 star punisher two more times, he is up to level 88. Opened an alliance crystal and got 3 star Unstoppable Colossus again, then I opened 4 premium crystals which yielded a 4 star colossus and 3 star black widow. Out of probably 1000 premium hero crystals I've only ever gotten 4 four stars from them. The rest I won in arenas or got from 4 star crystals. Before Sunday I had 15 four stars (6 are duplicated) but only 1 was a mutant. Got both Colossus and Storm to raise the total to 17 and 3 mutants. That was nice.
The new percentage based prizes for the arenas they introduced last week are making it way easier for people to earn 4 stars too. Instead of only top 400 in veterans bracket now the top 5% of participants will receive a 4 star. They ended up handing out roughly 2500.
just a 3. i've only been playing 3 weeks now. i'm getting the hang of it.
Some info for those of you just starting this game. In the arenas where you can earn 3 and 4 star champions there are 3 different brackets. The first month you play you will start in a beginner's bracket where you are competing against others who just started, the 2nd month you get moved into an intermediate bracket against those who have been playing 2 months or less, after that you get thrown into the vet's bracket where you compete against everyone who has had the game since it was created. My advice to you guys would be to take advantage of the weak competition the first few months. I spent a few bucks to build a squad capable of raping other beginners and rattled off 11 straight 4 stars in the first two months just from playing the 3v3 arenas. They give them out to top 50 in beginner, top 100 in intermediate, and top 400 in veterans. It takes so much more to place high once you get past 2 months (though the new percentage based rewards are helping to make it easier which is nice).
I would get a 4 star place with 1 million or so in beginner bracket and 1.5m in intermediate. When I placed 160th for yellow jacket in the veterans bracket it took 4.6m.
That is good i would play both 3 and 4 star when I just started to get as many champs as possible to compete in the 4 star arena. I only do the 4 star now because it takes time to get enough points. I was between jobs for 1.5 months and just wrecked shop.
Feel free if you guys have any questions.
i had no idea there were timed brackets like that. i finished 161, so i guess that'll end in a week, and i'll be playing against tougher grinders than i am. i try to play my 24 2* guys every 2 hours at work in the arena. it's very time keeping. i'm going for magick now. already at 47k today
Latest profile update with screen shots of just my 4 stars
They run the same character two arenas in a row each week, both 3 days long. They run them back to back so you can win them twice and therefore duplicate the champion which awakens their special abilities. A 4 star duplicate is so much stronger than if you just have them once. The first arena always starts Thursday and the second starts the following Monday.The stars turn silver instead of gold when you get them more than once, note the first 6 on my list above. The Magik arena that started this afternoon will end Sunday, and they will run another one for her starting Monday.
Up to 38 3 stars, need to work on ranking up a majority of them though. I just tend to focus on ranking my 4 stars first when I get a new one.
oh ok, so then with magick, as long as i win her 3 star by finishing top 200 again, then i can duplicate her on the sunday arena. that makes sense. that just happened with my white magneto. i thought i was just lucky.
Yeah you also get a ton of iso for getting 3 and especially 4 star duplicates, helps you rank them way quicker. For a 3 star you will get 2 5k chunks of class iso for whatever class that champ happens to be (Magik is mystic, or purple lol). For a 4 star you get an absurd 25 pieces of 5k class iso, which turns into 7500 if you use them on a champion of the same class.
Depending on how many 3 stars you have I would do both the 3 and 4 star arenas, you can end up getting her twice every three days instead of once.
how do i know what bracket i'm in?
go to the four star arena and look at the rank rewards. If top 50 get Magik 4 star you are beginner, if top 100 then intermediate, if 400 veterans.
i'm still a beginner
Actually there are three brackets. The easiest way to tell which one you are in is the red writing that says "you must score _______ points to qualify for a rank prize..."
What is the number there?
Jesus Christ. I have 3 3*s. Im not getting shit as an intermediate.
And I am average for my alliance lol, have dudes double my strength. We have a member from Singapore who spent roughly 10k in a week on crystals during an alliance event which won us all 4 star unstoppable colossus. I have the characters already to get well over 100k when fully ranked up, Im about to make scarlet witch my first rank 4 4 star and get her over 3k.
FYI guys in those 3 day arenas if you get your win streak over 15 then the matches get easier the rest of the way. They get really hard from 10-15 but if you get past that you can really go on a roll. Getting 3x points the entire 3 days really helps get more points instead of having to restart your streak over and over. If anyone wants any tips on how to do that just let me know. I once won over 1k matches in a row between the 2 yellow jacket arenas and the one after that.
And yeah 11-15 are 3 times my strength. one of their 3 bar attacks destroy like 75% of my health
a tactic I use from 11-15 is pairing 2 strong champs with a weak one, that way it makes the matchups more winnable for the 2 good ones. All you need is 2 of 3 to keep the streak. I will also use attack and health boosts that you can get from daily crystals and other events. When I hit 13 or 14 I will spend units to get easier matchups too, because it is worth it to get past 15.
ill have to give that a try. I usually just put my top 3 in the battle
that will give you the hardest matchups possible, like you said one 3rd level special attack and you are dead.
uh oh. i think i'm out of beginners bracket now. it's harder to get the catalysts today. i noticed they're higher than yesterday.
That means that you are in the "been playing for less than a month bracket". Kick ass while you still can.
Keep an eye out for my alliance on the leader board of this 7 day crystal event, we got 3rd last time and are on pace to beat that score. We just added a recruit with a 142k rating, double mine lol.
Also duped my 4 star iron patriot today, he knocked scarlet witch out of my top 4
I misspoke, new guy is 152k with no 4 stars above a rank 3. Pretty crazy rating.
that's just nuts. what are you doing to get 4 stars? crystals? i have 2100 units, but was saving them for the 2500 4 star crystal offer. should i not be saving?
So far I've gotten 4 from regular premium crystals and 4 from 4 star crystals, 3 of which I earned thru the game. 2 from alliance events, and then the vast majority from winning in arenas. I won 11 or so in a row when in beginner and intermediate brackets and have won a further 5 since joining the veterans bracket.
Not sure where you guys are at ratings wise but once you start beefing up your rosters I can probably help get you into pretty solid alliances if need be.
No keep saving that shows great patience. I always just used to blow my units (mainly on energy refills to complete the story quests). Just make sure you have enough when you finally do get that 4 star offer. You are at the point where you could drop 10 or 15 bucks to get to 2500 next time you get the offer. Better using that many units on a guaranteed 4 star instead of 25 premium crystals which will likely not get you one (I have to be over 1k premium crystals minimum by now, with 4 4 stars to show for it). You also get one for 100% the first 3 acts, which will take awhile but it is worth it. It only used to be a 3 star crystal so when Kabam changed the rewards they sent out the 4 stars to ppl who had 100% all chapters. They sent me one by accident as I had 100% all chapters but the last one which I only went thru once, so I ended up getting another when I did 100% it. It is how I duped both Spiderman and Thor.
3 star duplicates are handing out 55 4 star crystal shards apiece and you can earn a ton by doing all of the Magneto maps 100%. I have 1700 of the 2000 shards needed to get a free 4 star crystal.
Just passed 70k rating with this 3 day alliance rank up event going on, and I still have 3 more 4 stars to take from rank 1 to rank 3. My starlord is now over 2k rating, he was like 1050 in that pic above. Colossus and Ms. Marvel are now around 1500 instead of 1k, have them at rank 3 but just need to level them up now. Not sure whether I will rank Storm or Iron Man next, hope to have enough time to do both before the event is over.
that's nuts! i'm just grinding out these 3 star arenas. i know i can get duped champions placing in both of them. so that helps me a ton. maybe i'll have enough 3 stars to start the 4 star event in a couple months.
the shards are weird too. i'm not sure how many i have, or how to find them
