To prevent exploitation, we will prevent new Accounts from being able to Gift enlistment crystals. We will also be taking action on those who are using 3rd Party Sellers, Bots and other farms to gift themselves mass amounts of Enlistment Crystals. Lastly, we will be adding an expiration timer to Enlistment Crystals. All unopened Enlistment Crystals will expire on Oct 18 @ 17:00 UTC.

Nexus Dilemma - CGR Awakening or Guardian?

Leaning towards CGR dupe as mine is r3 and I use him often despite having a stacked cosmic roster already. I have the 5* duped and damnation can be quite useful.

On the other hand, I don’t see my self using a gem or sigs on Guardian. Much rather invest those on Ghost. Even Ultron would probably deserve those resources more

    Always new champion if the awakening champ doesn't need to awakened to be great.

    Always new champion if the awakening champ doesn't need to awakened to be great.

    CGR doesn’t need it but he sure as hell benefits from it. The “new champ over awakening “ rule of thumb is the only reason I’m asking this

    I have several times chosen an awakening over a new champ if the champ really benefits from it - unless one of the other champs is truly outstanding. (Kingpin the most recent a couple of weeks back over a couple of solid new options)

    In this case however, Guardian is really great. CGR isn’t my favorite, I’ll freely admit, but from what I have seen his awakened ability is nice but not critical.

    In the end though, depends on the depth of your existing roster. If you already have a ton of great tech champs, go with CGR. That said, Guardian does some pretty interesting things relative to any other tech champ, so for me it would be an easy call.

    Went with CGR in the end. Hard to pick an awakening over a new champ. But we can all agree ghost/ultron deserve the tech resources far more than Guardian does
