Please help, Advice on Winter Soldier as first 6 star R3 for Thronebreaker

edited October 19 in Strategy and Tips
I quite like the champs and have him naturally duped. Am thinking about doing this rank up as he's the only good skill champ I have atm (only other remotely decent one is unduped Nightthrasher) and I use him with the killmonger synergy.

Do you think it's wise to R3 him to get Thronebreaker in time for the cyber weekend deals? Or will I regret it later on?

My thoughts about this are there are 4 champions I could pull that would make me regret the rank up
1) Nick Fury
2) Hit Monkey
3) BW Movie
4) Stealth Spidey

So the chances of pulling any of these 4 is very low (I dont really count aegon since he really needs a dupe and 6 star dupes are almost impossible atm)

What do you all think, should I be 1 of the first-the first player to R3 a winter soldier?

    do you actually wanna r3 him? Or are you just doing it for thronebreaker?

    Id you are ranking just for the title, then save it. If you actually like the champ and use him, then do it

    I do want to rank 3 him but the reason I'm rushing is for thronebreaker (mainly for the cyber weekend thronebreaker deals)

    In my mind, atm I consider him the 5th best skill champ (behind Nick, Hit Monkey, BW Movie and Stealthy) so I do want to rank him up but I would probably have waited until next year to see if I pull 1 of these 4 if not for the thronebreaker title

    I wouldn’t take him past rank 2. There are so many more game changing rank ups.

    Honestly the thronebreak title isn’t game changing yet. The 4 hour crystals might be better (havent opened mine yet and won’t for a while) the daily crystal is cool but not worth using a whole t5cc for. The calendar hasn’t even launched. The free cavalier crystal every 2 weeks isn’t worth it. The solo objectives for thronebreaker have even launched. I honestly would wait until thronebreaker is more than just what we have now.

    Do you think it's safe to wait until Cyber weekend itself before making the rankup? I'm actually ranking more for the cyber weekend deals more than the 4 hour/daily crystals

    Probably a “hold your nose and rank” situation. Whales on the forums suggest getting a R3 is just a gateway to getting more R3 stuff with all the TB goodies. Not saying that’s true, but that’s what “they” say.

    Dr. Zola

    Yes, that's something I'm thinking about. Like I'm spending 1 T5CC but if the cyber weekend thronebreaker deals are a lot better than cavalier, might be getting that T5CC back almost immediately.

    Since Kill summoned me.

    YESS YESS AND YESS R3 him!!.

    once I get my t5 skill ima r3 mine. He is sooo much fun with his damage. He can easily do more damage than SL and has more Utility.

    I used my r2 6* ws and r5 KM

    WS on 100 hits is a BEAST!! I did x3 LoL paths with him. First 1 was r1 ws and I got a Maestro Solo.

    Did use him in act 6 Also and he did Very well.

    Thanks for this input. Yes, I actually really like Winter Soldier too, this rankup isn't just purely for Thronebreaker, I do use him too.

    I find he's basically a better version of Starlord (more reliable power drain and faster ramp up) for most content since especially at 6R3, I doubt he'll be going past 100 hits in most fights. With that said, some people have questioned his utility so can I ask you @Ghostboytjie have you found your 6R2 useful in ACT 6 Exploration? Asking as that's my next goal. I've mostly explored 6.1 but 6.2-4 are only just easy path clear

    So here's the deal, you said you would only regret ranking him if you pulled 1 of those 4 champions. Now hear me out, if you pulled one of those 4 you would be sad that you ranked him, but now you have to be happy since you pulled one of the god tier skill champs.

    You should do it as it sounds like you enjoy playing him and he is quite good with synergies and there are worse mediocre skill champs to take to r3

    Well I did explore 6.1 and a few 6.2 paths etc. He did really well. I used in him 6.4 completion since their HP is high. He did take out some paths Fairly easy. i'd say he will def help in explore since he melts some paths except where there are some nodes that makes it hard for him. other than that He defs helps in act 6

    Yup, my logic also is the chance of pulling 1 of those 4 is so low. It's like 4/130 or something. So something like 3% chance.

    Historically, deals have opened up when titles are unlocked during cyber weekend. Wait and see what the deals are.

    I actually like him. I do intend on taking my 5* to R5 when I have got my priority rank ups out of the way.

    If you’re going to hang around for the very best option in each class you could be waiting a while. The question you need to ask is - will I use him? If the answer is yes, then do it.

    Do not r3 winter Soldier just to get the thronebreaker deal during cyber Monday. You don't even know any information about the deals yet. How about waiting until you do know??? @ddom

    Anyone who is saying yes. Tell them to provide actual proof that they have a *6r2 Winter Soldier

    It's super worth it. I've had two 4500 t5cc so far, the rewards from the daily crystal would offset any future losses from not taking up someone like Nick instead - who knows how long until you even pull one of the "best" skill anyway!

    R3 him. My R4 5* is so fun to play with killmonger

    I wouldn’t. But if you genuinely like the character, go for it.

    Winter soldier is a nice champion to have, particularly if dupe and in synergy with Killmonger.
    But, i would save the T5CC for a champion like Nick Fury, Aegon, Stealth Spidy or Hit Monkey

    For the love of god please don’t just for the title! He is definitely not worth it! Just wait man! It’s not that serious! U will seriously regret it! Would not do it unless he was getting buffed! I have a unduped nick fury and I’m still not taking him to rank 3

    First and foremost, enjoy him.

    An r2 God tier and an r3 you enjoy are pretty comparable. Odds of pulling a god tier are low and even at r2 they'll pull their weight.

    Thanks for all the input. I think I'll wait till cyber weekend, see what the gap between cavalier and thronebreaker deals are and then decide

    Why are you so afraid of lagging behind?
    It is ok. Chill.

    Once you get a good champ, then go ahead to R3 and get the stupid Thronebreaker title
