**WE ARE NO LONGER Temporarily Reverting Tier 1 War Ban System**

After further discussion, the game team has made the decision not make adjustements to the ban system.
The previously proposed fix would have resolved the issue for Summoners who are on the cusp of T1/T2 play, and negatively impacted Alliances more securely in T1. Instead, we recommend that cusp Alliances switch to Manual Placement to your members to place the allotted 5 Ban Champions limit there.

Apologies for the back and forth, and for any confusion.

Would you R3 an unduped Doom if you already have a R5 max sig one?

As the title says.

I already have one t5c mystic stored reserved for R3'ing my duped Tigra. Currently mulling which t5c shards to pick from the gifting event 50% selector award.

If I choose mystic then Doom will be my next R3 after Tigra. If I don't choose mystic then I'll choose cosmic because I have R2 duped Corvus, Odin and King Groot (sig 60!) as candidates for my other R3. Or I could choose science and then R3 my duped Mister Negative.

What would you do if you were me?

FYI, my other R3s are Apoc, duped CGR, Warlock and Mister Fantastic. Have a skill R2 to R3 rankup gem that I'm saving for if/when I pull NF ( have a generic awakening gem for him) , otherwise I will use it on my duped R2 Moleman or Shang Chi.

Knowing now better my roster and other ranking options, would you still choose mystic t5c shards for R3'ing an unduped doom? Oh and I don't care about prestige nor AW because I am in a retired players ally that doesn't do AW.

    Just did it this evening, no reason not to take Doom to R3.

    While I didn't do this with Doom, I did this with Omega Red. Same answer as those who answered with Doom; I have no regrets about it. 6 stars can somewhat heal the damage they take and for me that has came in tremendous handy.

    I did Doom to R3 is your same scenario but I also R3 King Groot. I would go Doom later.

    Yes - he was my second 6r3 and I already had a max sig 5/65. There is even the odd occasion where the dupe is bad for a fight.

    Thank you all for your helpful input. At the end went for mystic for Doom... realized as you guys say that he pretty much NEVER can be considered a bad investment and that actually I am closer to forming my next Cosmic and Science t5c than to forming another Mystic. Besides, in the very unlikely scenario that I do form another mystic before a cosmic or science, well I also have a R2 duped Diablo that would be prime candidate for it, so it's all not that bad.

    Cheers,

    What does the R stand for?

    What does the R stand for?

    R= rank.

    So R2 means rank 2, R3 rank 3, etc.

    Generally, in this forum, when you see R2 or R3 they are exclusively referring to 6* at those ranks, cuz no one bothers with 5* at those ranks. If you see R5 it obviously refers to 5*. However with the advent of R4 6* in the game, we will eventually need to be more specific as in 6* R4 vs 5* R4, ... because 5* R4 still do have (an albeit dwindling) use in this game.

    So in poormans terms the rank is the number of ranking stars a champion has… so like vision is a R4

    I have a duped r3 fury and r3 moleman… save the awakening gem for fury and use the r3 gem on moleman. I use him way way more than fury.

    I will deprioritize every other champ to R3 a 6* doom as soon as I get him, despite my max sig R5 5*. I’m also holding a Mystic AG for him.

    I probably would. Doom is one of the strongest controllers in the game. Yesterday I used my 4star for the SQ tigra, he was better for it than most of my five stars.

    No, the stars are usually referred as the rarity. You can have a 2* (two star) Vision, a 3* (three star) Vision , a 4* one, a 5* one and a 6* one. If all you are counting is the number of stars then you are referring to rarity, and rarity determines how high the power ceiling of a champ is, the higher the stars, the higher its power ceiling. Some content on the game is even gated by whehter you have or not champs of a certain rarity.

    Regardless of the rarity, all champs recieive perks on its skills, health and damage depending on a rank. And you need specific , determined resources for ranking champs through the ranks if it's rarity level. So there can be a R2 3* Vision, a R4 4* Vision, R4 5* and so forth.

    Hope that helps.
