Thanos and Kang rework

Hi Kabam

With the higher drop rate of Thanos and Kang in GGC, can we hope to see those two super villains get a good rework this year please ?

They are two of the most powerful villains in Marvel and their mcoc version doesn’t reflect this

    Kang doesn’t need any changes. Run him with Apoc. Great team.

    He does some good damage with a synergy team. 35 hits against WS 🤣

    I know about Apocalypse synergy (and Thanos with overseer) but just take a look to kang and Thanos powers and abilities description. They are a bit pathetic in comparison of the majority of other champions since 2018 and all the pre 2018 champions reworked

    Well it’s just a wish i do so this trophy champions can be of use outside of arenas

    I’m fine with Kabam keeping them as trophy champs, but they should be reworked.

    I would love to see a Thanos rework (though I still can't get him), but the more 'common' Champions should probably be looked at first.

    I’m sorry but trophy champs shouldn’t get a rework until they do all other champs

    They are a trophy champ after all

    I feel I am gonna get downvoted to hell for saying this. But we should have them or versions of them in the basic pool already. All other Marvel Games have Thanos to be used and he is just a big boy. They could have Maestro be in the crystals and make Thanos and Kang go to the basic pool, then rework them both to be good.

    Also they both have awesome special animations and I wanna see them more in use.

    I agree with this too a point. I understand the rarity behind them, but as you said, as the game as gotten older, I feel other champs could definitely take their place. The Maestro idea you mentioned would be nice, but they did add a variant of maestro this year so I don’t think they ever have plans for him to be claimable.

    I’m not too big on thanos or kang being good per say, but their animations, especially thanos, I do love. Wish their were more opportunities to achieve them. Maybe that would be better than adding them to the basic pool? Make them more available to achieve? I don’t know, but I definitely share your sentiment on the matter

    But why would you want villains who would be more popular than you to be more readily available?

    Jokes aside, I wouldn't mind having them available into the basic pool but even then I still wouldn't agree that they should automatically be overhauled until such a time that everyone can be guaranteed one of each. As others have pointed out trophy Champions Trophy Champions they're supposed to be rare they're not really supposed to be used for anyting they're just supposed to exist in the game to show hey out of all the people who play this game, you're one of the handful who are lucky enough to possess a champion that not everyone can. And while I understand the desire to overhaul them has been around for quite a while, you can really tell that desire went up tenfold when they released Weapon X and even earlier to some extent when gold and platinum pool arrived. Buy again, it's understandable, people are hoping that all current and future trophy champs would have more viability in content and not just sitting there as a humblebrag for your collection.

    I might have a slight bias for him to get buffed :)

    This is what Thanos will do to anyone who disagrees

    No point in reworking champions less than 1% of the player base actually has in their roster.

    On the one hand, I totally agree. Time and resources are scarce, and Thanos/Kang don't merit a huge amount of time and attention.

    On the other hand, these are "Villains of the Contest" and have regularly shown up in various permanent and non-permanent content. That means (1) to be effective opponents, they should definitely be in the "buff list", but also that (2) it will need to be as minor 'Tune-Up' buffs, since Kabam won't want to over-complicate the major villains of Acts 3 and 4.

    If kabam really decided to rework trophy champs, they should look to champs like Unstoppable Colossus, OG Ultron, and Platinumpool, champs who are owned by a much broader number of players

    Swap 'Platinumpool' for 'Punisher' and this is a very valid point. Hopefully this is already on their to-do list...

    One of the months of buffs should be on these champs, both overhauls and then maybe even releasing them into the basic pool

    Thanos has been a huge part of Marvel in recent years and the era of Kang is just began.
    I really apprecaite the work that went in Sigil Witch and Weapon X, trophy champs who are actually useful

    While I think you have a point about them not being total noodles as bosses in story content, you only have to look at Act 7.3 to see a reworked Kang. Until they've been out in the basic pool for quite a while, I don't see any reason to rework their basic versions in any significant way beyond that very Act-specific boss rework. After all, if Kang (or Thanos) turns up in let's just say Act 9.2 again, then I would hope that Kabam did another rework of him in order to make him a fun boss again. For now, that's as far as I want Kabam to go with reworking those champions.

    That being said, I think there's a valid argument to be had that their "trophyness" has fallen off lately. Not that they aren't still rare, but we have champions like Weapon X and 5* Redpool that are even rarer while also being significantly better. I wouldn't mind it if Kabam switched out the trophy champions of old to newer ones, introduced the old ones into the basic pool, and eventually buffed them.
