Summoners, we recently encountered an issue with the Alliance Quest Setup Phase Starting Timer that may cause the Setup Phase Starting Timer to display erroneous information, though we are working on a fix for it as quickly as possible. Additionally, if the Setup Phase does not let you plan your days in advance, you will be able to once the Event officially begins on the Alliance Quest Start date.

For clarity, the next Alliance Quest Enlistment Phase will begin on December 5 at 20:00 UTC, regardless of what the in-game timers display.

The next Alliance Quest Start will be on December 6 at 20:00 UTC. This is when Summoners should be able to enter each Map. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.
Alliance War Season Rewards will start to roll out to Summoners very soon. These will take a while to get to everybody, so do not worry if an Alliance Mate receives their rewards, but you haven't yet. We thank you for your patience.

Who should be my first 5* r4?

I know this has been asked a million times, but it's so tough. My other r4 will be gwenpool. I'm mainly wanting to focus on 100% uncollected every month and the initial completion of act 5. Would love your reason why also. Thanks in advance!

    Hype is the answer to just about everything. Hes better overall and can be used more places

    Corvus
    Both god-tier champs and you can't go wrong with either. Hyp needs the dup more. I have both as 5* and at rank 4.

    Both would be excellent choices for AQ and honestly any champ is.

    Both are excellent choices for questing (Acts 1-5, special monthly Uncollected quest, etc). In fact, I primarily used my Corvus to clear most of this month's Uncollected (already 100%).

    For Labyrinth, Hyperion is the better option though I have Blade, SL, and Starky and they are much better options than Hyp here. This is the one glaring weakness of CG, he isn't a good option for very, very long fights.

    Corvus is the current darling in AW and at the highest levels is way more common than Hyp. Hyp feeds MD and this can be very problematic, though if you avoid MOST mystics he is still an excellent choice for AW.

    You have 3 champs with you in AW. Ofc there are better options for both with mystics in AW. But hype for sure is my mvp in AW. No weak matchups for him. No boosts needed. No synergies needed and one of the only champs great for short. Mid and long fights. Always plenty of time left after the boss kill. Way more utility. I just personally think he should rank up based on the overall use. I have both aswell and i at least take hype anywhere i go and barely ever need anyone else unless for spesific matchups like f.eks dorm.
    Again just my opinion

    Oh okay that changes thing. No matter what people say. Hype needs that dupe to be all that.

    Honestly u can't go wrong with either..R4 corvus will do a lot of damage to act 5 defenders and he will benefit more from that attack increase from R3 to r4..
    I voted hype because of his overall utility..corvus though great suffers from a massive drawback of hitting like a noodle once his charges are over and that makes him not so good in long fights where ur R4 might not be able to finish opponent in those 20 hits whereas hype is great for all content of the game..

    I also thought corvus is bleed immune? When I fight Iceman I don't take any damage from coldsnap, but I can get the mess bled out of me when I still have glaive charges from someone like gwenpool and electro causes shock damage to me on his specials?

    Both unduped, no question then Corvus. CG is bleed immune with his charges up but can suffer slight damage from Deep Wounds (DDD has a video on this). Also, if knocked down by a heavy or special, he can take damage from bleed, shock, or cold snap since his immunity shuts off for 3 seconds.

    So I must be bugged then. I'll put in a ticket. And thanks. I'm working on making out assassin so his sp2 should really do nice damage once I got them close to death on this high health people.

    Corvus is indeed great but a 4s r5 corvus without charge is not recommended for last 2 maps of master difficulty EQ. I have both and I love my corvus but he dissappoints me on long fights where as hype with furies and armour break sp3 does the job real easy.

    There both amazing champs.. be careful though to many people invest in them and the nerf hammer will fall

    Corvus

    Hype dosnt really need to be awakened to use him effectively.

    Corvus is a hard hitting immortal that has very unique abilities and utility. His fighting style is very fluid and fun to play & his persistent charges are a plus.

    Learn his playstyle and complete the missions in attributes to see him shine.

    Once awakened, he cannot die while his Glaive is not broken.

    This is also the only champion that has synergy with another champion written into his ability, Powerful match if you pair these with Proxima.

    He will serve you well.

    Great pulls.
