**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.

Who do you prioritise for 6* Ascension?

PantherusNZPantherusNZ Posts: 1,621 ★★★★
Depending on what content you do, the T2 dust is coming through reasonably well, I'm curious how people here priotise who they ascend from their 6* champs (5* is of course a different story)?

I know Hercules is probably an easy first choice, plus maybe whomever you use for content like Necropolis (Aegon, etc) but after that...?

I suppose if you have 1-2 champions you use a lot then they're probably good choices, maybe champs who aren't available as a 7*, or maybe champs who suffer from slightly weaker stats and would benefit from the boost?

    I started with guys that I use a lot, EQ/SQ and Necro. Now focusing on champs I don’t expect to be available as a 7* soon and have at high sig.

    Outside of Aegon for Necropolis, I’ve primarily been ascending champs that I’m certain we aren’t going to see as a 7* any time soon, and that are useful for BGs. I don’t see the ascension on 6*’s being particularly needed for story content generally since even an R5 is frankly overkill for most things.

    From a 5* standpoint I’ve been ascending champs that aren’t coming as a 6* (so Magic) or champs with Niche/Cheese uses such as Ronan and Namor or champs that I don’t like that much and don’t want to max sig as a 6* but want to have around at a viable level in case of emergency (Ghost).

    How do you know who's not likely to be a 7*?

    I have herc, champs I've used for necr (aegon, torch, doom). Now I plan to go with champs who need max sig or whom I use a lot (latest was abs for aw defense, next one will probably be Nick, then hulking, valc, nimrod, ronan, namor, knull, maybe thing or Korg in no particular order)

    Whoever you're thinking of taking to R5 in future is worth ascending.
    It can either be your fav champ or just one of the best in their respective class.

    All my R5s which aren’t many

    For me is Magneto because without ascension his health is very low but he is very op.

    I ascend champions that I consider to be the strongest in the game, and they won't come or they will take very long to join the 7* pool.
    Hercules, Doom, Archangel, Aegon, Nick Fury, Nimrod and Scorpion are my ascended 6* r5s so far.
    Waiting for the Crypt rewards to ascend Absorbing Man and Apocalypse or Kitty Pride.
    As others have said, very strong champs that also need/benefit from high/max sig are the best candidates for ascension 🙂

    Best champs go first, so long as they aren’t 7-stars. Consider champs who have things that scale with base attack only - omega red, Galan etc because that’s the only way to continue to boost those abilities.

    I ascend champs who:
    1. I know for a fact will be in my deck every single BGs season either because they're dual threat or top attacker or defender and work on nearly every meta (except Zemo, that one was just for Necropolis and because I like Zemo's interactions with nodes a lot lol)
    2. They're too op to be 7* and it'll probably take a year or more before they're released as 7*

    Yeah, I'm probably part of the 5% who will never ascend Herc, don't really care about him. I'll ascend Hulkling Galan and Adam first, maybe then I'll ascend him.

    I'm now considering ascending my AA. My original plan was to do FAM and then either hold my remaining 200, or R5 Nick and ascend him. Then my buddy advised me to hold on FAM instead, as his reasoning was "he does what he does perfectly fine at R5, and most only ascend him for AW defense." So, I COULD do AA and that whole plan with Nick Fury. We'll see.

    I'll have to play around with options in the next couple of days.

    Champs that need high sigs (aegon and similar champs), champs that won’t be 7*’s for a while(Herc), trophy champs (I did maestro and J Jones), and champs that you like!!

    I ascended Aegon for Necropolis but beyond that, I mainly have a BG focus.

    * Kate (r5)
    * Hulkling (r5)
    * Black Cat (r5)
    * Future Ant-Man (r5)
    * Absorbing Man (r4)
    * Archangel (r4)

    All of these are either superb BG defenders or attackers (or both). Since that's the only real competitive stuff I do (my alliance isn't really pushing AW super hard), that's where my resources go.

    My first ascension was my favorite champ (Kindred). After that I stick with champs with a champ from each class that have a fair amount of defensive potential (Jessica Jones, Maestro, Weapon X, Future Antman, and Nick Fury). FAM, NF, JJ, and WX are also fun to play offensively and do well.

    My plan for my next ascensions will tend more towards great attackers (still with some defensive ability), still one of each class, that I use often. Scorpion, Absorbing man, Onslaught, Nimrod, Kingpin, and Hulking are my thoughts currently, in no particular order.

    Considering how plentiful of a resource dust is I don't really put much thought into it, I ascended my abs today because I was gonna use him in war. I'm overcapping my stash anyways

    Ascend top 6* who won't be released as 7*s.
    My current ancesions are doom, kingpin, FAM, kate and Aegon.
    Next I'm planning to go with absorbing man and hercules.

    I'm still on my way to have one champ of every class r5 and ascended... So far it's
    - Herc
    - Doom
    - Nimrod
    - Aegon

    After Crypt rewards it's going to be Human Torch and Kitty Pride which completes the collection...

    From there I am not going to take 6* to r5 without a gem, so ascension will be upon my r4 champs that I love to use and don't exist as 7*, like Nick Fury, Ghost, maybe Apoc... Also Tigra and CGR, but they are still r3...

    I slowly have no more Champs on my list to ascend, because we get enough Dust.

    Maybe Deathless Guillotine and Weapon X next.

    Herc & Aegon, saving 500 PD for when ever I have to.

    I may ascend Mephisto as a defender because even if he came out as a 7 star, the sig 200 would make him more relevant

    Herc was my top priority, followed by Monkey because why not make a crit machine that much better! I ascended r4 aegon strictly for necropolis. I also have Claire and Hulkling because I use them a lot and they aren't 7s.
    My next ones also aren't in the 7 pool and likely won't be for awhile: BWDO and iBom, both are used a lot and fun to play.

    Will there ever be a second level of ascension for 6* above the current, does anyone know? I'd assume not, but interested all the same.

    I'd assume there will be, since the ascension symbol shows a "1", but it has neither been anounced not hinted at, so it may be well in the future...
