Re: the tier list, there's a newer one post Infinity War that takes the uniforms into account, and it's a little larger (right click, open image in new tab)

Do keep in mind though that it assumes you have the uniforms in the pictures. I don't necessarily agree with ALL of this, but it's close enough if you're not being overly picky.

Are the goon alliances in the OP up to date? The whole system seems kinda weird, and I can't tell which ones are active or not

I have enough crystals for one more uniform before the sale ends. Which one will give the biggest boost between Rogue, Shuri, and Venom?

Venom, I think. It takes him from a completely useless character to a near unkillable one. Only problem is it makes him a hero. But he's pretty drat useless as a villain so its a gain anyway.

Shuri's costume is good and nets you Legendary Battle rewards if you wnat to work it up. But I think she's pretty effective without it and her biggest strength is the team passive.

Rogue's I don't have but she's basically unkillable on her own and just needs a little attack boost.

There's also more infinity war costumes coming and a sale along with them, presumably.

Yeah, considering they ran sales pretty much consistently since releasing the first batch of costumes I assume they'll do the same and have weeks of sales when they release the second batch. And then like you have Ant-Man and the Wasp coming out in June so we probably get another update and maybe costumes and characters.

Future Fight 101 is "Never stress about missing a costume sale and never buy a costume not on sale because another sale is right around the corner."

Thanks, all. I think I'll pick up Venom since it's only ~700 and I should have at least 1,000 accumulated by the next sale.

In the grand scheme of things I don't think Proxima was really worth it at the time I was ranking her up. She's good but not great and she didn't move into my top tier. By the time i had her finished I already had my 5-5 WBR clears and she can only help you with one floor in Shadowland.

I was heavily advised by this thread to rank her up at the time but since then we've got Jean Grey, Quicksilver, Cable, Scarlet Witch, and Apocalypse who are all better and rank up the same way. Plus now we have the Level 70/T3 characters who cost bios the same way. I'm not sure I'll ever get around to the Black Order if all the other Infinity War characters are Level 70s/T3s too.

I guess if you can't do Quicksilver and unlock him Proxima is the easiest option. But I'd just focus on using your bios on the general roster. Get everyone to 4*/Level 50 so you can get the best CoOp rewards. Then work on getting them to 6* and T2 methodically based on the tier chart. That's ultimately the way I went when Proxima disappointed and I don't regret it even if I wish I had built up Thanos, Odin, and Dormammu and mean to get around to them. Eventually.

She is top tier with her uni tho

e: and jfc Quicksilver etc are massive time investments. Ignoring all of the other poo poo you have to kill Quicksilver >70 times< to even start to work on Cable, let alone SW and Apoc.

I really hit a wall at level 18 Proxima. Quicksilver just canít take off enough damage in time, at 2:30 she still has x9 left. Been doing Gorgon lead with Shuri or Coulsten assist.

Ugh. I hate having to farm all these bios just to throw them at somebody else. But I'm nudging closer to 6-starring Thanos finally. I guess I'll ignore the Black Order for a while and try to get Scarlet Witch up to the point where I can unlock Apocalypse. Then I've got Odin sitting there at Level 1.

But I've unlocked everybody except Warlock, Dormammu and Pocky. And I've just now realized that when you get your Free Character Box every day, if you unlock someone you already have, you don't get bios for them PLUS bios in your inbox... just the bio selector in your inbox. Boo.

Not if they're T1. If they're T2, the advancement button on the character screen will say "Unlock Potential" or something like that. I just grabbed a list from reddit and looked it up every day until I was done with it.

Deal With it Midgardian

That updated tier list is weird, as I found Iron Punisher actually pretty anemic. Like he can barely finish off Proxima Midnight alone, which is my gauge on how good a character is.

I need more t2 villains, as I always run out of them at SL20 and it always has 3 stages where only villains work on it. Its super annoying, and SL should not have levels where only one type of character can be used. Problem I have is all the villains left except Sandman are either really expensive or hard to get ranked up. Though I've been working on Vulture for a while now and he's always maxed out. I guess I can put more stuff into the Black Order and get their IW outfits, but that is such a pain in the rear end.

Even with her uniform, Quicksilver is still better and doesn't cost 1000 crystals.

You are beginning to understand the nature of a free-to-play, pay-to-win game. Those roadblocks are in place by design. Want an easier way to rank up those villains? There are plenty of options in the store that you can buy right now to speed the process.

Don't want to pay? You have to wait until you can grind the materials out the long, hard, free way.

I'd say work on Sandman/Vulture. Both are effective villains for me. Sandman can work a relatively "unkillable" cycle of 1-3-4-5 if you nail the timing (if you slip a little you're in trouble) and handle those evil Cap stages. Getting Cyclops and Beast's costumes is a nice cheat since it turns them into villains. Ultron can take down the robot stage. Mordo and Kaecilious can work. I use Superior Spider Man and he's effective early on but I assume Doc Ock would be as well. After that its definitely the tougher ones to get I use. Magneto, Apocalypse, Proxima, Corvus, Carnage, Enchantress, Anti-Man. I guess even though I kind of disrespected Proxima's value earlier I undervalued her usage as a villain in Shadowland.

But yeah, villains are always the group I have to be most selective about in Shadowland each week and make sure I don't run out. And I should probably ignore the T3s for awhile and work on Thanos or Dormammu.

Unless they release a new method of obtaining Cosmic Cube Fragments I am not gonna have a t3 for a long rear end time. I am only at about 300 of the 800 needed, and I have been doing WBU Prox every single day since she came out.

Same boat, at 271 not counting today. Everything else seems to be progressing at a decent pace.
