Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

Deciding on Featured or Basic

What's up everyone,

So I have 50k 5* shards and getting ready to open some 5* crystals... I want to see though if you had 50k right now would you do 3x featured crystals or 5x basic crystals...

Not looking for anyone in specific to add to my team... of course god tiers are great but I probably won't take anyone I get above rank 3 for awhile.

    Personally, I'd go for basic. I went for featured only once, got Rocket. I swore to never go featured again.

    If you don't need anyone, go for featured... at least you have the chance to get someone new for future use (With the amount of T2A now, that's less than 4 month, if you're in a decent alliance and do quests).

    If you have a solid roster already there's no reason to not go featured. You have a much better chance at flushing your roster out with someone game changing than you do with basics.

    Go for the basic unless you don’t have any of the god tiers in the ft

    Figure out who would make your team better amount all champs, how many are in featured vs basic. Also what awakening gems do you have. For me mutant and tech.

    It really depends on your roster. I personally looked at the featured and there were only 4 champs I had (Jane,Quake,Voodoo,Sym Spidey) so I went for one and got Morningstar(decent pull) I went for roster growth through the featured since it gives a chance at some of the newer champs in the game that won't join until Dec-Jan the earliest and aside from 2 or 3 champs its a really solid crystal to open. Look at your needs and go from there.

    Basic pool is amazing. You are really only missing Wasp, Korg, and Ghost. You still have the chance to get Domino, Corvus, IMIW, Cap IW, Venom, Carnage, Stark Spidey, Star Lord, X-23, Medusa, Ghost Rider, Void, and Blade.

    Hmm, how is that r5 heimdall? Generally curious
    If you don’t need anyone, why not save for the next set of featured

    I love him!!

    True Strike helps me take down any annoying OG Spiderman or other evade immune....been solid against most bosses... we fight a lot of NCs and OG spidermen with the occasional medusa or something else. While they are still stun immune he takes a major issue (evade) out of the equation.

    Lately I have used him on AW Defense.... special node 2 bias, unblockable special 2... Usually unblockable already cause he will have an armor up buff but also tough to dodge out of... possible just tough lol. Anyways he has been getting between 3 and 6 kills a match for the last 8 matches so far. Domino though is my star on defense... I can't counter her effectively still...

    Also used him for Golden Sym this last event quest still had to revive a few times due to the power drain and death issue but wasn't so bad even on uncollected.

    Unless you have a specific goal in mind stick to basics. This is the first featured crystal I've gone for in a while, and even though it only has 3 champs I want in it which is far fewer than previous crystals, all 3 would help my account take another step up.

    Awesome!!! I played around with him in the beta it was fun... they really made him a better champ overall.

    This is pretty much what I have been doing with shard crystals... but I feel like the basic pool is so large now it will be tough to get a champ I want.... definitely don't need another colossus.

    I mean, I’ve only gotten Hyperion and CAIW from featureds that I had to pay for, and a free cyclops red from a master dimensional rift.

    Just do basics. I got super lucky
