    I thought buffed up would be real bad but cleared it without revives using venom. His symbiote counts as a buff....

    Just completed Act 6 with mainstays
    5/65 Stark Co-MVP and CB & Ghost Bosses
    4/55 Hyperion 6.1.6 Sentinel Boss
    4/55 Domino Co-MVP and Sabertooth Boss
    3/45 Red Hulk (Domino incinerate synergy)
    2/35 Miles Morales (+30%Stark synergy)

    Depending on chapter, would round out the team with 1 of the following
    1/25 LukeCage Loki Boss
    3/45 Ultron double immunity and heal block
    4/55 Medusa Ultron Boss

    Surprisingly I barely use my 4/55 Void. I’m use to spamming SP1 so definitely not 6.1.6. And there was other times it was more important to use different Champ.

    Biggest advice, read and watch YouTube to understand the global nodes. I jumped in Day 1 and didn’t get too far and spent 5 revives very quickly. Said screw it and didn’t try for a week maybe 2. But after watching few vids I tried again and made it through in couple days. Still spent more revives than I wanted but they were mostly my errors being impatient . Oh and spent on taking down Crossbones.
    Overall 1st chapter of Act 6 wasn’t as daunting as I thought. Will put off 100% exploration until after I rank up and practice champs like GR, Proxima and Quake.
  • Anyone know of a champ that can solo 6.1.2 ultron besides medusa? I heard void, nebula, and maybe gulk could?

    Blade with GR synergy. Use parry and 3 hit combos. Block the SP1. Fatigue will help with healing if you have Willpower. Electro would also be great if you're lucky enough to have him as a 5* (or 6*).

    Im sorry but this game sucks now. Act 6 is so super restrictive on roster and you guys promised us you wouldn't do that. You did and can't deny it. There are lanes completely structured on one champ. Corvus lanes Blade lanes Void lanes. You know what? I've got them. I got Corvus, I got Blade with Ghost and just recently pulled the Spark 5* along with Aegon in a 2 feature pull. I have Void R5, I have Omega Red R5. I've got CAPIW R5. I've got a Hulk R5 whom is resourceful himself. I've got Heimdall, Angela, at R3 for synergies. I've got Magik awoken R5. SS 6* R1. I have SL R4.

    What else do I need. There are lanes I can't do because I don't have a proper champ. Completed 1-5 no problems but map 6 Huff Up lanes, the Inverted lane... Come on. You are pushing it to the max. I've gotten extremely lucky with pulls lately and put effort in to get content done and champs leveled up to be competitive but it's just not quite enough... For the FIRST chapter of Act 6?

    Give us a break Kabam. I feel more bad for my ally mates. I mean seriously can a mod give me a serious answer on how a typical later can achieve this super selective content with a forever growing roster and Rng based crystals?

    I did him primarily with Nebula. You need to practice *not* parrying so that you don't transfer the shock charges. The shock charges are more valuable flatlining Ultron's ability accuracy. If you parry and transfer, you have to build them up again. Not hard, but it slows down the fight.

    And the Buffed up lane isn't even a lane you can pound your way through, along with others. You absolutely need certain champions, can't even pay your way through aside from thousands of crystals to maybe have a shot at a champion you need. Honestly, it sounds like endgame is coming for Marvel Contest of Champions and it makes me sad.

    They must have told you that in a private meeting somewhere, because they never told me that. And while many lanes or global nodes favor certain champs, I'm unaware of a path on any map that is "completely structured on" a single champ.

    There are lanes upon lanes upon lanes that are super restrictive what are you missing? Even if there's 2-3 champs... It all adds up man. And if you don't have 1 of those several champs somewhere along the way, you're done. Fun is over

    There is a lane that only allows you to deal damage if you have 3 active buffs up. With a double Power gain Magik, a poison dealing SW, and a SS whom nullifies those buffs from you, dealing damage in the process.

    This is the tip of the iceberg even if you manage to slide by with your amazing roster, you just may not have that one or two champs for the next Chapter. And we all know we can't dig into the 4* roster

    I try to talk to my ally mates about Act 6, we're a Gold 1 alliance... There is barely conversation to be had. The above average competitive Joe can no longer keep up. Some of them who pull the same amount or more crystals as me are sitting with T5 waiting for one Great champ to rank, forget a roster full of them to complete main Story content

    I got creative with Heimdall + Angela this one nullifies the buffs. I shouldn't have such trouble with the roster I have. Imagine the people with a less fortunate roster, their frustration? Some people don't come vent on here, they just slowly stop showing up to AQ and AW

    Why are they expecting to clear everything within a month of release of the top most content? One clear is what should be expected at this stage ... full clear is for top dawgs at the moment ...

    I don't think it is a good idea to restrict Act 6 strategies discussion in one thread...

    Information is going to get lost here and people will turn to reddit or youtube for advice.

    Talk to me when you complete it man, we're talking about the Easy paths here, your post means nothing.

    My roster is good enough. I have 4 lanes remaining, I think I just need to R4 Aegon now to take on the Mesmerize lane and have some good skills ready for the Inverted lane. But i shouldn't need Aegon Blade Void Omega Corvus Hulk or equivalent to whatever those of you would use whom don't have the balls to R5 max a Hulk, Heimdall and more to get the job done, all R4 and preferably R5. Because let's face it, the exploration rewards are not that great. Expect the restrictions to grow in Chapter 2 and forth

    I am not asking you to wait to form your judgment about its restrictive nature ... I am asking those unfortunate people to wait for the right champions as it is not even a month of release ..

    I understand this is a great thread regarding strategies for going into act 6. But not everyone is into forum and keep reading this thread that has like 500 posts for 1 singular issue that person might be facing at that point. I understand it keeps forum neat and tidy but it's a forum so restricting them to this thread itself, I feel is not cool. There are numerous threads which are totally useless and wasting space. I would prefer to watch out those threads instead of redirecting the whole community to this singular thread when it comes to act 6. Just my thoughts.

    I was going to post something about Red Hulk in 6.1.5.. about how Void is the best method for him .. but there is no point in posting in this thread

    Did anyone tried Thor Ragnarok and Ghulk for Ultron in 6.1.2, since the last update thor shrugs off shock debuff 40% faster and Hulk gets indestructible for 5 seconds..

    It is not a debuff... shock is passive for this one

    Best options for rhino in 6.1.4?

    That one was a pain. I think She-Hulk and Spider-Gwen would probably be great options, but I don’t have either of them. Not sure who all you have either, but I used 4/55 GP and 5/65 CapIW and worked out decently well. I don’t believe I was able to get any solos on him, but was able to get pretty close with GP(started with sp2 for enervate, then tried for sp3 armor break if I was able to get the bleeds going to keep the enervate up) before he went fully unblockable, then finished him off with Cap.

    Hi Folks, I just wanted to pick your far superior brains!

    I'm looking to do a run through of act 6 at some point, and I have been lucky enough to pull some decent 5 stars:
    Void, Killmonger, Sabertooth and Winter Soldier, who have very good synergies between them.

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any champs that would compliment this group of 4 synergy wise??

    Thank you kindly in advance

    You probably don’t wanna stick with one set team through 6.1. Your team should vary depending on the matchups of the path you’re about to take. However, to answer your question, ideally Omega Red fits quite nicely into that team synergy-wise since he has nice synergies with both Void and Sabretooth.
