Summoners, the Necrosword Crystals (the crystals in the Knull Cavalier Preview Bundle) currently have a higher than intended drop rate of 6-Star Champions.

We will be leaving the crystals as is for the time being, but will be correcting the drop rates before Knull receives his official release on October 28th. To ensure that this does not affect anybody that purchased this preview bundle, we will be auto-opening these crystals before that date, but this means you will not see what you received. To avoid any confusion, please open your crystals yourself ASAP.

Corvus vs. CMM

From my July 4th pulls i got both Corvus Glaive and Captain Marvel as 5*s. I do have one cosmic awakening gem. Who should I use it on?
I also have an awakened Hyperion currently sitting at rank 4.
Which of these three Champions would you rank 5 first?
Thanks for the advice.

    Recently, I chose Heimdall over Hyperion in a Nexus. ;):p

    If you are able to bait heavy and intercept with heavy, it is game over, so Hyperion to R5. Hyperion has a little healing as well.

    CMM needs the awakening more than Corvus. In my progression, I used CMM more to pair with Nick Fury.

    Have you played with CMM, Corvus, or Hyperion extensively before? Maybe as 4-Stars? Are you familiar with them, are you good with them, do you enjoy them? Do any of them matchup well with the type of gameplay and content you like or plan to do? What are your other Ranked Up top Champs?

    (CMM vs Corvus) I prefer CMM due to her less match-up specific ramp ups

    But Hyperion tops those two definitely

    I think Hyperion benefits the most but corvus has one of the most underrated awakened abilities in the game. His immortality has allowed me to do entire paths on map 7 with 1% life. I love corvus so much I maxed out my five star and I'm currently maxing out the sig on my rank 3 6 star

    Preposterous. Corvus needs it way more.

    So CMM > Corvus. ;)

    Thank you all.
    @zaspacer I currently have Cap IW, Apoc, Wolverine, Stark Spidey and Colossus as 5/65 and Warlock and Cable as 6* r2. My go to team for most quests (unless there is a specific node/path/boss of course) is Cap, Warlock, Apoc, Cable and Wolverine. I mostly use Horseman Wolverine for his insane bleeds and healing. He has saved me so many potions and revives at this point.
    Content wise I am Cavalier, but didn't do anything else in act 6. I am currently working on 100% act 5 and Variants. I have only completed Variant 7.
    My 4* CMM is maxed, but i didn't use her to much. She is great against energy damage, and incinerate, but so is Human Torch, who is already at 5* r4.
    With Corvus I have no experience (except for arena), but I have seen some insane stuff.

    I think I will awaken Corvus now after all your advice. I kinda regret taking Colossus as my 2nd r5 over Hyperion at the time because now I have so many mutants ranked up... But Hype is definately going to rank 5 soon. I will take Corvus to r4 and test him out.

    (Cmm vs corvus)

    As much as I love my cmm I'd happily trade her out for a 6 star corvus

    Sounds like you're in a great spot.

    Your champs indicate you are already good at Parry gameplay, and Corvus seems to be a lot of that.

    I am actually terrible at Parry gameplay, and I really liked by 4-Star CMM/Fury/Quake, so I chose to rank those up, and never ranked up my 5-Star Corvus (or my CAIW). But it's really only because CMM/Fury/Quake fit my playstyle so well. And I really am that bad at Parry playstyle. I know that for most people Corvus is an amazing Champion, and they would take him over CMM, but CMM is more my playstyle and who I can do well with. If I get better at the Parry playstyle, I will probably take my 5-Star CAIW right up, because his high Sig level is not something I could do with the 6-Star (if I were to get it), so the 5-Star CAIW would be the top CAIW I could get for a very long time.

    Good luck, it sounds like you're well set with great Champs that you're very experienced and good with. You should do well.

    @zaspacer Thanks man.

    Your parry skills will catch up soon! It is not so difficult once you get the basics. Just keep training, maybe use the new Training Grounds in game or watch Dorklessons Videos on YouTube.
    I personally relied on parry to much for a long time. So I was struggling with many stun immune nodes and certain champs like Black Panther CV, Mordo and shrug of champs like Agent Venom, the Groots, X Bones, Kingpin etc. So I am pushing my intercepting skills at the moment and I'm getting quite ok with it. Also there is nothing more satisfying then a good heavy-conter with Cable, once you get the spacing ;)
    You should definately rank up your Cap IW! He was my absolute mvp for so much stuff. He can take blocked hits for ages, has incredible damage (just parry,heavy,sp2), can stop unstoppable opponants and, with his Sig ability, you can customise his utility (petrify, purify, armour break, weaknes debuff, gain more kinetic charges). Only his reliability increases with his sig level. Mine is sig200 and it really makes a difference than, lets say, sig 50.
    Wish you all the best!

    CMM is overrated. Only one immunity, and depends on stun for heavy chain.
    Hype for over the top damage and healing.
    Corvus for literal immortality and quick matches.

    Thanks, and I do hope to get better eventually.

    I am Thronebreaker now, and have figured out other ways to fight. But I will keep trying to master Parry at a high % success rate.
