Suggestion for making Trophy Champs better through synergies (Thanos, Kang)

Most that don't have these champs really don't care, but these champs are exclusive champs that most likely is won by extreme skill, or spending oodles and oodles of chedda cheese to obtain. With that said these champs are obviously outdated and pretty much nothing more than arena fodder. My suggestion is a simple one. Make these champs better through synergies, maintain their core mechanics and abilities but with synergies we can make them actually worth using in content.

Thanos - Black Order Synergy is pretty obvious here. Have all the member of the Black Order with Thanos and Thanos (only Thanos) gets 50-100% attack boost and 50-100% crit rating (numbers are just for looks). This doesn't make him insanely over powered but it would be awesome to actually use Thanos in end game content.

Kang - Again maybe a synergy with Thanos that boosts attack or critical damage or something along those lines, this way it makes you almost need to gain Thanos to make him really really good (people spend more money yada yada Kabam and fans win) or include another synergy to boost his base stats to something that is actually useful in most content.

Yes I know these are considered trophy champs but its really no fun to play with limited edition toys when you have to keep them in the box.

I'm sure I will get 1,000 disagrees but think this would make obtaining Kang and Thanos a lot more interesting to most players, as of right now when you put 6* duped Thanos as a reward for Abyss of Legends everyone basically goes wow we get a useless champ we can't use in any content....easy pass. Make him OP through synergies now watch the wallets open.

Just a thought....make more money make more people happy. Everyone wins.

    The problem with making a trophy op is that almost no one has that trophy. Imagine if ghost was locked behind a legend run.

    Some small synergies with a full team geared towards them would be nice, but imo the buff would have to be so small that it would be more beneficial to not run a team around the trophy champ.

    Typically most champions in other games that are Extremely rare are pretty OP. Its one of the reasons people spend/attempt to obtain them which usually generate a lot of money for companies. I don't think there is anything wrong with certain champs being locked behind a legend run as they are supposed to be extremely rare.

    Make kangs sp2 stun last longer. Make Thanos trigger armor up on well timed block and crits refresh healing block. Also higher fury ability accuracy. Kang could have increased special damage based on how low the opponents health is and crits refresh his sp3 healing block. It would not make them op but they would be better.

    You're right they shouldn't be overpowered; but they could definitely be better. Synergies would be an acceptable way of doing this.

    Kang and Thanos are super-rare; but there are second-tier trophy champs like Punisher, Immortal Iron Fist and Ultron Classic that demonstrate the synergy buff can work.

    Punisher is the best example - he's actually useable, although there are many skill champs that do what he does better. He also does receive occasional synergy buffs; and recent synergies with Darkhawk and Night Thrasher are pretty useful. Certainly they're useful enough to ensure that playing with Punisher isn't a way to deliberately handicap yourself!

    IIF and Ultron could at least be added to more of the (brilliant) synergies on offer to their regular versions. It's a shame that Ultron Classic can't get the synergy with Mister Sinister; and although the Classic version shouldn't get a 'Family' synergy with Iron Man (having been created by Hank Pym), he could legitimately get the same synergy with Ant Man. And at least he has the 'Robot Uprising' synergy with Warlock.

    I'm in favour of synergy buffs for these champs; as long as the aim is to make them useable rather than mega-powerful.
