I sell 4* champs.

I know this will be blasphemy to some of you. But selling 4* champs if they aren't duped isn't the end of the world. I honestly believe its a decent idea, But only if you take them to r3 first and you can afford to waste the other resources that it cost to rank them.
You net more 5* shards by selling champs at r3 than you would by pulling the same champ 6 times.
There are several champs out there that I take to r3 for level up events and immediately sell for the shards. Mags mn, she-hulk, SG, OML, Joe Fix it, Ms M (KK) and the list goes on.

The name of the game now is to maximize 5* shards. And this is how I do it.

Example
She hulk r3 sold for 425 shards x 6 = 2550 5* shards

She hulk pulled and duped 6 times= 275 x 5 =1375 5* shards
then at max sig you (potentially not guaranteed) would get 275 more shards per pull with the max sig crystal = 550 shards
So you would have to pull She hulk 8 times to equal the same amount of shards and selling her 6 times.
If you sold her 8 times you would still be at 3400 shards, so you still would be ahead a thousand shards.

Basically selling 4*champs are only worth it if they are at r3.
I however don't think selling them at r4 is worth it with the current shortage of t4b and t1a.

I am now bracing for the sure to ensue roasting.

    Heretic! Crazy Person!

    I have never fallen in with the "never sell champs" Cult. I consistently sell 3* champs to get shards. I don't need a math major to come in here and tell me how I am costing my team X points in SA.

    The only problem with selling 4*s, even at rank 3, is that you do not get back the gold and t1a that are used to rank them up and level them up. For a newer player and even for some of the higher rated players both can be limited resources and bottlenecks to continued growth. Plus you actually net more ISO as a newer player duping 4*s repeatedly.

    @Qwerty I am almost 500k now and was well pass 300K at the 12.0 update

    @Thawnim Last I checked a 4* to rank 3 does NOT cost any alphas at all.
    but I agree this method isn't a good idea for a newer player.

    it does take alphas to take a 4 star to rank 3

    I sell unduped 4* (r3 or less) that are coming in the basic area all the time. It makes sense. If I awaken them in the basic arena to lvl1, I still need to dupe them 5X before I start getting max sig crystals. Sold my Groot this week in fact, who was R3 unduped.
  • StewmanStewman Posts: 104
    My bad you sure are right. It does take one alpha.

    That is incorrect. You need 1 T1A to go from R2 to R3.

    A single alpha per champ to get to r3. I agree with you, by the way. Sounds like no detriment to your play style so a good choice.

    How much gold do you actually get back when selling though?
  • StewmanStewman Posts: 104
    Hey guys I already admitted that I was wrong on the alpha. I have never been 100% alpha broke, so I guess I just never thought about it.
  • StewmanStewman Posts: 104
    Considering every 4* I have is r3 already
  • so I sell as well whatever rank they are if i dont need them at all. i sell 1-4 stars but the problem is i am left with 20 champions and 50k only.
  • I have no problem having a few 4*s that get sold regularly. I've sold Joe Fixit at 3/30 4 times. The 1st time was to fill out my first 5* crystal and it was back in the willpower days when he was truly terrible. I pulled a 5* SL and have been selling Fixit ever since.

    i never have enough cats to get my champs up to r3 etc i still have a few 4* sitting at r1 or r2 (ive stopped taking 4* to r3 because of the alphas) and i still havent done all my 2/3*'s either (im an over 400k account) i wouldnt sell my champs just because its not worth it to me to have to worry about releveling them and everything else involved

    I sold before got bored with all my three star champs I never use and half my fours and did a clearance. Was fun at the time and got two five stars out of it but kind of regret doing it mostly because i got to rerank them all as they come back to at least 3/30. To either sell again or arena bench sitters and it gets pricey i dont think i will resell again
  • Dexman1349Dexman1349 Posts: 868
    I've debated selling a few champs simply because they literally have zero fighting value. I won't rank up a few of them (like fixit and Spidergwen) because they are garbage champs. Some champs are even horrible in arenas because their debuffs trigger crazy willpower regen on the AI (like Luke Cage and OG Capt America).

    The only reason to keep them is the fact that they generate so much class ISO when duped. I'll even use my extra Science ISO from duping Fixit to level up my Mystic champs.
  • Dude, no one cares
  • Vossler77Vossler77 Posts: 203
    I do the same. Don't even keep 3* anymore. This idea that having a high hero rating makes you much better is total BS.
  • Dude, no one cares

    Don't call me dude, bro

    Fixit is fun with max DW. Very underrated.
  • The shards are totally not worth wasting an alpha.

    Fixit may be fun now but I am committed to always selling him so I'll never know.

    Did you do 2nd grade math? You get 425 5* shards for selling a 3/30. For one dupe you get 275 2 is 550. 6 isn’t more? What????
