Prestige rank ups are really stupid

I’m not sure how people feel about prestige in general, but I think it’s stupid as hell. I’ve seen people simply not rank up champs they enjoy playing because their prestige is too low. The fact that people rank up champs they don’t even enjoy or want to take up at all for prestige is something that still confuses me. I’m sure most of the leaderboard rank ups of Phoenix, Thor rags, and other champs are simply because their prestige surpasses other champs. What’s your opinion on these?

    If you want to stay in the top allies, prestige rankups are a must. Personally I feel it's a curse, but if you want to be up there, it's a sacrifice that has to be made. This is why I'm in a Ally which isn't super serious about prestige. I'm sitting happily at 6.2k without any "prestige" ranks

    prestige is important to keep the game at top levels competitive instead of everyone getting the same point totals. also adds another reason to rank or not rank a champion and not just be able to get away with like r4 champs in high allies.

    As the game progresses, newer champs get higher prestige, so someone can’t be put in an alliance because their prestige is high and not work to get newer champs.This prevents ghost alliances where you have a completely dead alliance sitting at the top of the leaderboard for prestige preventing others to grow.

    Prestige rankups are necessary for players in top alliances. They get the most resources and can spare ranking champs for prestige

    Prestige ONLY becomes important for AQ scoring. If you aren't in an alliance that focuses on AQ, then prestige isn't necessary. But the higher you go, you'll find it will eventually become a factor.

    I’ve managed 10.1k without any prestige rank ups. But I’m not in an alliance that requires rank ups just for prestige. We require 9400-9500. Which isn’t hard to do with even middle of the pack prestige champs.

    You really only need a max 5 star Silver Surfer or Dr. Doom to boost prestige for the next 4 guys.

    You’ll rank up those types of champs if your serious about getting into the best weekly AQ rewards/alliances. If the rest of your ally isn’t serious about that they you shouldn’t be either. The benefit is obviously that you get way way more rank up resources for the champs you enjoy playing too. But again you shouldn’t be blowing your resources of those type of champs if the rest of your squad isn’t doing the same.
