**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 would you rank up first?

So I was about to rank up my recently duped Crossbones - his ability to shut down Heroes plus now his shrug felt like a no brainer. Then I pulled Shang Chi.

I’m definitely going to R2 both of them, just curious who you would do first?




In case it makes any difference, I’ve got a 6* Winter Soldier relic (unawakened) for Crossbones and a 5* duped max rank Black Panther for Shang Chi.

    As the owner of an R3 Shang-Chi, I'd probably still go Crossbones. He doesn't quite have the nuking power of Shang-Chi, but a broader shrug ability plus his AAR denial is probably more valuable overall.

    As an aside, I assume it was a typo that you have an Ant Man relic for Shang Chi?

    Thanks - and yes, it was Black Panther. Thanks for catching that. Have corrected.

    Depends what you're going for. Shang is a great nuke, and is also really fun to play, while Crossbones overall has more utility and is great in a variety of matchups. Personally I always prefer nukey/crazy damage champs just 'cause it's more fun, but that's just my personal opinion.

    Only because Shang Chi dosn’t need it…with 50 Chi charges, a R1s sp2 = 600k damage.

    Thats the highest i’ve been able to do VS ROL Wolverine, with my 7R1, without nodes helping you.

    In act 8, vs Bahamet, he can do a lot more, if the timing is right you can make him skip phase 4 with a 1mill+++ sp2…there is a youtube video of that somewhere. But thats with nodes helping you in the wounded phase.

    I don’t know where else you could messure his damage potential, but its prob much higher…but all defenders will be dead before you get to the big bang, or it will be limited to % of max health, like in AOL and Necro.

    I think this is it:

    I am personally more of a crossbones fan but Shang is probably better
