**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.

My newest 7* r3!

Emilia90Emilia90 Posts: 2,255 ★★★★★
I finished the carina challenges last night and I already knew what champ I was gonna pick from the selectors and instantly r3

Overkill? Maybe a little

Worth it? For me, definitely. He hits like 3 freight trains and crits on pretty much every hit (which is why I took 2, definitely wouldn’t have done this unduped).

This is r3 number 4 so either way, one can’t be banned now. On top of that, some r2’s catch a lot of bans. My other 3 are dual threats so hopefully they lay off on sparky

I’ll probably do a full write-up on the Carina challenges sharing how I felt about each one. It was a wild ride and I have some constructive feedback for the next ones

    I'm pretty sure he ends bg fights in like 15 hits max.

    Do you have any regrets not picking Masacre? When I do it, I’m debating between 2 starkies or a starkie and a massacre

    It depends on whether you need a skill 7* or a tech one more

    Massacre is great but I just enjoy Starky a lot more. I’m sure we’ll see 7* gems at some point, but I didn’t want to use Starky unduped cause of the higher unreliability and I wanted the silver stars from the dupe haha

    I think it comes down to who you actually enjoy and what kind of playstyle you like more. For me, absolutely no regrets. I usually ban any high ranked massacres and that’ll probably continue :)

    Also the whole skill or tech thing that captain rogers brought up. I know some people that are taking double massacre because they love him and want to r3 him, which is also perfectly reasonable

    First bg match with him against a r2 red skull. 10 poise is actually major overkill and wastes some time, so 7-8 poise would probably be the sweet spot. Loving him so much 😭

    Damn I thought building poise will waste time in BG?
    I did Legacy 5* starky challenge and building poise took me time (was also my first time playing that hero xD)

    Congrats. I really wish I liked sparky’s play style. I picked duped massacre and I’m liking him just having trouble throwing special into block need some practice.

    Depends on the number of poise you want to build. 10 poise takes about 20-25 seconds but you’ll kill them in the next 10 seconds before they even get a chance to throw a special. Even with how passively RS was playing, it built up pretty fast and I nuked him in 3 combos with no specials thrown on either side. 10 poise = 26k mediums and 16k lights + 51k heavies

    Did the challenge about a month ago, but could not make my mind up on the decision even until this day. Might wait to see if we get a 7* AG crystal on July 4 or Cyber Monday.

    That’s a good choice! Massacre has the same nuke potential (just in a different way). If you enjoy him more, that seems like the right choice

    I like the whole dex back thing more than hit into block and I’ve always loved how smooth Sparky feels so he was an easy choice for me

    Without poise charges his damage is not that big. But you don't need 10 poise charges 6-8 is sweet spot

    Yeah Starkys got a great kit, I just seem to struggle when building his poise charges. I either get clipped or corner myself and get combod into oblivion lol.
