    Hi everyone, thanks for all the help regarding transitioning to 5*.  Since I plan to go into 5* land around June, I think any specific advice revolving my rosters now might not be helpful by then. Who knows the meta might have changed? We are looking at another 12 4* and 5* characters in the next 6 months.

    Hi everyone, thanks for all the help regarding transitioning to 5*.  Since I plan to go into 5* land around June, I think any specific advice revolving my rosters now might not be helpful by then. Who knows the meta might have changed? We are looking at another 12 4* and 5* characters in the next 6 months.
    With 5 stars coming at such a glacial pace you’ll learn to plan as far in advance as possible if you want the best ROI. This is especially true for FTP. I’ll use my own goals as an example. 

    I finally have 5* Hawkeye champable but had to use a lucky run of BH, check the daily resupply, buy his recent HFH cover, and use the 2-3-4-5 feeder chain with shards to get him there. Long term planning for just one character. Yes the meta changes and pop up stores can change plans as well, but it’s always good to have foresight into where you are going and how you plan to get there. But remain flexible enough to switch up when you have new info (new meta, new store, new feeders,  etc.). If you don’t want help or to give any info on your roster that’s fine, but I wouldn’t for that reason. 

    My next hoard break to try and cover three Latests will be when the 5 after Bill enters.  Using 300 pulls as a conservative estimate, I could finish Parker (who has 127 shards already) and have enough left over for one more 5* cover. Phoneix has 11 right now so I can make her 12. Also will get 11-12 BH that I could use on Jubilee to get her very close to spitting out the last cover I need. All this prep, planning and allocation of resources (which could change at a moments notice) and none of these characters are close to meta!

    SHIELD Level 159

    Day 1422

    Roster slots: 200/206


    5 stars: All rostered.  BRB was drawn when he entered Latests. I'm drawing from Family Favorites vault to chase Beard Cap, Jessica Jones and Prof X covers to give those three potential covers. Kitty is the one I'm chasing in shards and she just crossed the halfway mark for her next cover. Emma's 280 level gave me another in her Yellow cover, so matches with Grocket and Juggs are slightly faster in PVE. Shard rewards and covers from the new feeders gave my roster a boost for several characters, with Iceman finally nabbing his missing blue cover and Storm is two covers away from being a champ. Cap Marvel is my next highest covered, with 9, and several 5 stars at 8 or more covers.

    4 stars: 86 now champed. Mysterio is still waiting to climb to 270, and Wolfsbane and Modok are gathering covers yet. The boost from shard rewards gave some small cover gains for some of my heroes, but they're all still in the lower range of champ levels, with few over 300. The 4* cover acquisition with shards is still glacial, and I'm in no rush to champ Mysterio and Talos.

    3 stars: All 3-stars are still rostered. I threw a lot of my ISO in this tier recently. Angel, Gambit, Sentry, Vision, all with 20 saved covers moved back to champs. She-Hulk is climbing now, and Loki will be next, as I'm, going to have 20 covers for him at middle of Prodigal Sun and pulling in double ISO. We're stopping after that, with four at 13 covers left to re-champ who have very few saved covers on the vine at the moment. Human Torch and WOLVERINE (PATCH) both were sold at champ but that ISO went back into characters with saved covers. I'm starting to build up roster slots to make 3 star dupes, though.. As I'm seeing the shards system and the help it can give to a 4 star roster, dupes seem the smarter way to go for the stronger characters, like Doc Strange and Deadpool in the tier.  Chasing Bullseye to 266 at the moment,

    2 stars: Active farming continues here. Shards system helps a lot at this tier, in giving champed levels and colorless covers. The loss of HP and CP here so far hasn't been noticable, as most draws I get are 2 stars. Lot of turnover at this tier.

    SHIELD Level 1?? I want to say it's 162, but am unsure and away from my game at the moment. 

    Day 14?? (just passed an anniversary, as I got some Devil Dino covers)

    Roster slots: 205/207


    5 stars: All rostered.  Prof. X was my first to get 13 covers, and he has roughly 4 on the vine. I've raised my softcap from 315 to 330 on a few of my 5 stars, as all but Talos in my 4 stars and the current slough of heroes still clamoring for 13 covers have been champed. Kitty gained another yellow cover via a draw from classics and a purple via my shards from opening packs finally paying off. Sinister was rostered as well. Storm, Okoye and Jessica Jones are my next top covered characters. Hoarding for when Sinister enters tokens so I don't draw any more Prof X covers, since I'm not moving into 5 star with just him.

    4 stars: 87 now champed. Mysterio took the climb. Modok is at 12 covers, Karolina Dean at 11 and Wolfsbane at 10. Trying to chase with the advent of shards in PVP enough to get Northstar to eight covers and then hope for some lucky draws in LT or MTs. I've had several champs make it to the 300 level threshold now. 

    3 stars: All 3-stars are still rostered, and I only have two or three who fell back down from top rank to the bottom that I have to rechamp. Hawkeye, Quicksilver and my Deadpool dupe. Shards in rewards for PVE/PVP make this tiers advancement move faster now.

    2 stars: Active farming continues. Debating starting a dupe farm on a few of them I routinely use in Deadpool's Daily, like Hawkeye, Ares and Storm.

    All of my 4*s are fully covered except for Karnak, (got my 13th Karnak cover this morning via shards) Maria Hill, Taskmaster and Spider-Ham. I have 35 4*s to champ still. I'm working on that right now. Everyone is at lvl 209 (or higher in 3 cases), so I\m champing those with 10 saved covers or more so I either get 2 LL tokens or an LL token and 5* cover when I champ them.

    I'm also building my 5s. Kitty is champed, PX is fully covered. I have everyone rostered. So it's just a case of needing iso.

    SHIELD Level 166 (just passed it on Sunday)

    Day 1513

    Roster slots: 206/211


    5 stars: Waiting to roster Havok. My draws in latest for him have not been fruitful, but they have been beneficial for my Beta Ray Bill, so I'm not complaining at all.  Soft cap of 330 continues, with anyone with more than seven covers moving up that way, and a majority of the 5 stars at that level. Jessica Jones got one additional level over 330. I'm one cover away from Storm nabbing a 12th cover, and ~116 shards away from Kitty getting the Purple cover to a one turn repeater countdown that also brings her to 12 overall covers. Carbage was 2 covers away from 13 before he was moved to classics. I keep drawing from Latests with every chance I get, and my 4 star roster is greatly benefitting.

    4 stars: 91 (?) currently champed (however many there are minus Talos, Spider-Ham, Taskmaster and Maria Hill). Northstar, Wolfsbane, Karolina Dean and Karnak were all champed in quick succession since shards are rewarded in PVE play and they all crossed 13 covers with at least one on the vine. Talos and his new compatriot Maria "I'm going to be a bigger martyr than Worthy Cap!" Hill are the only non champed non-limited 4 stars on my roster. There was a minor debate on if I put money into the Taskmaster deal this weekend, but since he's a limited character very rarely boosted, that was a quick nah.

    3 stars: All 3-stars are still rostered. Magneto, Captain America and Cyclops took the tumble down south to be rebuilt. Currently chasing Daredevil as targeted shards hero to get him to 266. Hawkeye's at 12 covers again. 

    2 stars: Active farming continues. Dupe farm has been put on back burner currently. The HP from flips is a hotter commodity since that got limited in PVE.

    I hit 5* land last year after hoarding to get 5 Captain Marvel, Doom, Hela. Afterwards I champed 5 Thanos who was always around 11 covers, finished him in a special store. Then built another hoard to get 5 Profx and Beta Ray Bill covered. 

    Currently I'm probably going to keep building my stash of 222 pulls in LL store, for when the new 5 Hulk is rotated in. I might hoard longer though as I don't think I'll like the two 5s in LL store with Hulk as soon as he enters.

    SHIELD Level 169

    Day 15??

    Roster slots: 208/212

    5 stars: Rostered Havok. Now chasing the new 5 star Hulk before he's required in an event. My Beta Ray Bill was at 11 covers before he moved to classics, with 75 shards away from his 12th cover. He'll be the next one I chase once Kitty gets her 13th cover. Soft cap of 330 continues, with anyone with more than seven covers moving up that way, and a majority of the 5 stars at that level. Kitty now sits at level 332, so she's easily located on my roster, as my highest champed 5 star. I'll be moving Havok, with 5 covers, up to the 315/330 level next.

    4 stars: 92 (?) currently champed (however many there are minus Talos, Spider-Ham and Taskmaster). Maria Hill is champed, since I got 13 covers for her in her last event. Talos is currently moving up that ladder now, too. Yes, it has finally come to this. Talos gets to move up the ladder, so I don't just accumulate ISO and not spend it anywhere... I ended with 6 covers for Super Skrull following all of his events. Because all of my 4 stars are champed, I'm finding it hard to focus who to target with shards, since Super Skrull will be locked out of those for the forseeable future. I may actually be considering not drawing anything that awards 4 star shards until Super Skrull enters tokens to chase him more effectively.

    3 stars: All 3-stars are still rostered. Daredevil tumbled down, and Elektra's 600 shards away from being fully champed and having one cover for her dupe. Thor will be next to be chased via shards. Cyclops is almost back to 13 covers.

    2 stars: Active farming continues.

    SHIELD Level 171

    Day 19?

    Roster slots: 210/216

    5 stars: Well, I finally did it. I progressed to 5 star land with just two champions to start: Prof X and Kitty Pryde. I was 50 shards away from Kitty's final 5 star cover via chasing shards when I got a 500 bonus shards for her, bringing me to champion level. I added the 5th cover to her purple, and man oh man is she another tier level of a character that benefits my PVE. I'm still chasing iHulk, Apocalypse and Yelena in 5 star draws from latests, and my Beta Ray Bill is one pull away from having 12 covers. He's who I'm targeting via shards now, however, so it will be another three months and he'll be champed. I'm still not rostered Onslaught, but everyone else is rostered at that tier. PVP has definitely gotten to be more of a challenge/slog, but since I only play for the 10 CP except on new character releases, I'm happy with the move on champing Kitty, as she has really saved my bacon in several PVE matches against countdown spammers.

    4 stars: Talos finally made the climb, leaving me with just the two newest that aren't in covers (Legion and Hellcat) to have champed. Many of the roster is now over the 280 threshhold as well, with 315 being my top, top level of dudes.

    3 stars: All 3-stars are still rostered. Hulk is the latest to tumble back down when I needed the HP and had a pretty substantially covered dupe to add covers to. Kamala and Thanos are next ones nearing the top of the heap. 

    2 stars: Active farming continues.

    I am so close to getting to the point where I can start hoarding CP/LL. iHulk is at 11 covers with 815 shards. He's 4/4/3. I'm waiting to see if I can get one more cover from the LL store before applying those shards.

    Yelena only has 4 (1/1/2) but Apocalypse is at 6 (0/5/1). My hope is that I can get Apoc fully covered by the time Yelena is out of the store so I can have a full release cycle hoarding. We will see though, having 5 red already scares me a bit. Funnily enough that's all I pulled the shards went to yellow cover.

    Today is 1 July. I haven't stepped into 5* land due to lack of iso-8.  :/

    Day 919
    SR 155
    Champed 4*: 90 (+38)
    That's close to 14.4 mil iso-8.  :o

    My plan for the next 6 months is to resist the urge to champ 4*.

    Six months from now, on 1 Jan 2021, I hope I can save up enough iso-8 (~5.72 mil)  to champ 10 5* characters.

    Moving on, I've finally transferred the records of my pulls from notepad to excel. Pulls before December 2018 and CPs used to purchase 3* powers were not recorded when I was still early in the game.

    Pre-Shard pulls beginning from Dec 2018

    Classic: 502 pulls
    16 4* BH (3.19%)
    4 5* BH (0.8%)
    63 5* (12.55%)
    LT: 422 pulls
    12 4* BH (2.84%)
    7 5* BH (1.66%)
    67 5* (15.88%)
    Special Stores: 29 pulls
    1 5* BH (3.45%)
    10 5* (34.48%)

    Post-shard pulls (Late Nov 2019)
    Classic: 37 pulls
    5 5* (13.51%)
    LT: 449 pulls
    58 5* (12.92%)
    Special Stores: 69 pulls
    11 5* (15.94%)

    Summary: 
    4* BH is better post-shard.
    5* BH is better pre-shard.
    5* pulls (LTs and Classics) are below average.
    5* pulls (all special stores) are above average (21.4%)

    Why 10? Seems like an arbitrary number. 

    I think you and I play the game similarly with regards to how we like to formulate teams and exhaust different combos for a character (though I imagine you’d be more likely to reach down a tier when looking at pairings then I would at this point). 
    I don’t know if you read my post on transitioning to the 5* tier, but I did it with all the meta at that time and then some (Thor, Okoye, Kitty, Jessica, Thanos, Daredevil). Looking back, that seems like too many. I was so enamored with the raw power of Thorkoye for offense, Gritty for defense and Thanos for PVE that Jessica barely got played. This awesome character was just sitting there. The rest of my 38 champs were leveled as the iso came in and/or the covers did (once I hit post-iso). 
    Leveling characters as I get the resources to complete them is a lot more fun than doing so in bulk. It’s like getting a new toy, and I can focus all my energy on that one character, creating fun combos. Whereas when you get a bunch of toys all at once that are equally shiny, you might find some collecting dust. If I could go back, I’d of just champed Daredevil as he’d be a fun single-5*. Then champ Thorkoye as soon as I got the iso. Then Kitty. Then Thanos. 
    Today, if I were you, I’d champ Kitty and play some single 5 MMR (something I never got to experience sadly), then BRB (That one team can get you to 1200 using barely any packs). Then Okoye and Hulk just to have the other meta.  Though one is really all you need for PVP. And any champ 5* will make PVE easier than it is currently. 
    How you talk about not needing all the 4*s to be competitive is also true for the 5*s.  Once you have your first team(s), then just champ others that interest you as you get the iso, same as you’ve done in every other tier. The 5* tier is not all that different and scary than any other. But I didn’t know that back then.

    Currently, these 10 5* ranges from trash tier to meta tier. Looking at the current metas in 5* land, champing 10 5* would allow me to switch them around in PvPs.  

    Theorising and then trying out different combos for each character is what make this game fun for me. I don't think I would have played MPQ  this long without this interest.

    I thought of going with 1 champed 5* for a month before progressing to two champed 5* for a month and then finally going deeper into 5* land with 10 of them. Champing Kitty first crossed my mind but she's pretty niche. I like to start with someone non-meta and has a wider range of teams.
  • Daredevil217Daredevil217 Posts: 2,877 Chairperson of the Boards
    I agree, OJSP. The only caveat being that if he finds it unenjoyable, he’s not “stuck” (for long anyway) like a lot of people are and can just champ a couple more and move to full 5-land. I too am interested in your top 10 and the reasons why as well as those that didn’t make the cut and the reasons why. I don’t know if you’ve seen my 5* ranking guide, but I post some team combos in there beyond just “the meta” so it may or may not be helpful for you. 
  • HoundofShadowHoundofShadow Posts: 3,242 Chairperson of the Boards
    RNG being RNG means I can't really control the distribution of those 5* characters when I pull LT or Classic. For example, even though Prof X stayed in LTs the longest, but the number of covers that I drew for him is below average. The second factor is timing. Starting the game in late 2017 means 5* before end 2018 have poor coverage. 

    I was thinking of starting with Carnage or Storm because they seem to have wider team choices, in terms of supportive and offensive abilities. 

  • HoundofShadowHoundofShadow Posts: 3,242 Chairperson of the Boards
    Storm will definitely attract a lot of attention. I'll should be fine with that because my goal is to hit 1000 points and out. I will test either one of them (likely Carnage) for a few PvPs and see how big and how fast losses are coming in.
