The real problem with 4* restrictions

DaphboyDaphboy Posts: 172
Not that I even use her much, BUT, the fact that 2 of Jane Foster’s synergies aren’t even available as 5* or 6* hampers her utility even further.... oh, and while her 4th synergy is available as a 5*, you have to pay for it with units or money(vision).
At least give the poor girl a little synergy buff if you’re gonna make one of the least desirable champs even less effective than they can be lol

    Factually, that only impacts quests in Act 6 (or any other quests with some champ restriction).
    Well ... we just have to accept that.

    I know, I’m not trying to be one of those crazy fanatics saying “change or I quit!” Lol.
    I was doing some arena and thought to look at her synergies, only to notice 3 of her 4 synergies aren’t available as 5/6* even. Having just 100% a5 A6 is next on my in game agenda so it does actually matter what champs are available to me. Just thought to myself, “another reason I’ll never use her for story content” 😅.

    Also as I said initially, just give her a synergy buff so she isn’t crippled more than she already is. Or better yet, add 5/6* versions to the game! No need to change the 4* restriction I suppose. Maybe I should’ve titled differently so this doesn’t turn into one of “those” threads lol

    Why would you focus on a champ that everyone notoriously hates and never uses as an example?

    I'm not shooting it down. They've already stated they are slowly bringing those champs to 5/6* versions. They have to balance them first.

    It speaks to the fact that not every last champ in the game should be remade into a 6 or a 7 when they come along.
  • RapRap Posts: 2,246 ★★★
    I have always thought that the pool should be more limited as you near the top. Not every champ is worthy of effort to aquire and raise...and the more effort it takes to aquire them the less often you should be disappointed!

    Venom and joe fixit
    Imiw and both visions(OG only being obtainable through spending)
    Hawkeye and SW
    Iron man and thor/war machine
    Bp and Deadpool(all og Deadpool synergies)
    Loki and Thor
    Yj and joe fixit
    Angela and Thor
    Spider-Man and wolverine
    Hulk and Thor


    That’s what I’ve come up with for unusable synergies in A6 based on my 5*/6* roster of 53 champs.

    I would have found it more reasonable to restrict access to 5/6 stars to previous acts like 4

    How many of these would you be using in Act 6? Or would like to use?

    While Jane foster thor is less desirable she is useful in act 6 since the Ultron boss deals shock and very few champs available are resistant to shock

    they aint gunna balance them.
    what they have said is they wanna make sure thy don't unbalance the contest.
    in other words bring more over powered BS champs first.
    and also they never said they are.
    they said they have no plans yet. but you never know maybe in the future.
  • DaphboyDaphboy Posts: 172
    @Dshu I have ghost 5* and Emma 6* to handle the shock damage 😅. I have the roster for a6, this was just something I noticed today and thought it was worth bringing up for discussion

    Actually they did. Miike said it. And yes, they have to balance their abilities as a 5 or 6 to scale properly. But be careful what you wish for. OG vision isn't as good as his 4* version. He scales way differently.

    @Demonzfyre I’d use Thor and vision AOE for sure. Obviously I’d love to see SW and wolverine in the pool as well, it i don’t see that happening lol

    It's pretty manageable though honestly.
  • DaphboyDaphboy Posts: 172
    And synergies can increase visions damage scaling. Still not the heaviest hitter I know, but his dual immunities and power control is really amazing. I always preferred aoe to og vision, feel like he has more control since you never need to wait around for synthesis and can just spam specials every 5 hits

    The point is most of them aren't viable for act 6 and even if Thor or Joe fixit were available as 5*'s, who are you going to bring... Thor or Jane Foster?

    no he didn't.
    he never said they "WILL" be coming. he said they have been looking at it.

    see @Demonzfyre , they are laways looking at it, but don't currently have plans. and it may change.
    there is nothing there that says the definitely will and theat is the most recent comment in regards to this topic

    I didn’t start this thread to split pubes over semantics. I was just pointing out that the limitations go beyond “not having the roster” and extends to unavailable champs making the weak, weaker.

    Rank down tickets for 4*

    I'd bring Jane Foster and pimp her till I got through.
    Lol... Nah, I kid. Just trying to lighten the discussion.

    Agree... But you can still take Cap IMIW to boost her

    Electro and Doc Oc is another great synergy that's very hard to get with 5*. I realize Electro is out there but unless you spent tons on crystals or were very lucky you don't have him as a 5 star. Electro should just be added to the regular 5* crystal imo. Doc Oc is a great utility champ that hits reasonably hard.
