**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.
More information here.
**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

Who benefits most from a cosmic awakening gem?

I hear Medusa just needs to be awoken and doesn’t need a high sig level. I also have 60 or so sig stones. I’m wondering if she’s the best use of the awakening gem or someone else.

    I wouldn’t awaken CMM cause her main utility doesn’t require her dupe. Medusa though, duped she gains damage and an extra safeguard for mistakes when at 3 furies. If you have Black Bolt you are perpetually in loving strands mode.

    Cmm’s dupe is another level of utility.
    I’ve used gems on both medusa and cmm. I use cmm extensively more.

    I choose Medusa. CMM works well even unduped.
    I have both 5* too.
    Or u may hold the AG for others like Hyperion, Couvs etc.

    Medusa is a no-brainer. Indestructibility is an added luxury for CMM, she already does everything she needs to without her sig. Medusa's sig is essential to maximize her damage, and she can deal with some fights CMM Won't be able to deal with.

    And ghost needs wasp and omega needs sabertooth and aegon needs proxima and one plus one equals two and the sky is blue, your point? 🚶‍♀
    Well she still needs to be ramped up 😉

    No, the problem is Ghost doesn't NEED Wasp if you have the skill to phase sp when the opponent is dashing, or parry then phase sp.

    Omega also doesn't NEED Sabretooth. The synergy just makes the spores gain quicker to get his damage out faster, but with skilled play you can still get to 10 or 30 spores fast.

    Aegon doesn't NEED Proxima. It gives you the safeguard for Combo shield which can be avoided with skill.

    Captain Marvel Movie NEEDS Nick Fury to extend her fury durations else she will lose them too fast and you take a lot of chip damage building up your charges. There's no amount of skill a player can have to bypass that mechanic.
    Dude I never bring nick fury and she does just fine in aw attack.

    CMM does NOT NEED Nick Fury. She does just fine without him. He helps but is far from necessary for her to be a badass.

    Both have a good utility associated with their sig ability...but i would use it on cmm..as others have said,her indestructible comes in handy in a lot of situations and makes her super suicide friendly...there aren't many healthpools in the game who can survive an onslaught by a 5/65 suicide boosted cmm for 12 seconds...plus since u have 60 Sig stones,u will be getting a little over 10 seconds of indestructible which is quite substantial..another factor is her prestige,Unless u are buying deals for Sig stones,they are not that common to come by and if u are going to spend all on a champ,i would prefer it to be cmm over medusa because of her prestige

    Simply put:

    Medusa: Defensively stronger, and her signature ability with 3 furies on, as pointed out earlier, saves you from mistakes

    Captain Marvel Movie: Some players say it's a luxury to have, but even at signature 40, it's a cool 8 or 9 seconds indestructible.

    Both their signature saves you units in different ways. One difference is medusa's signature makes her a formidable defender in alliance war. Not hard to make a call, right?
