Champing Strategy

    Some of the factors that I will look into before deciding to champ someone is as below:
    • how good the character is overall
    • is the character optimally covered, if not, champing the character will let me respec him/her
    • If I obtained a 14th cover of the character
    • how frequently I used the character and who I can team the character with

    Even though with this list, most of the time it can still be very hard to decide.

    Ok so, six months later and some big roster decisions.  

    I have maxed Gambit (as my only champed 5*) so the nerf is going to really hurt.  Even though I only dabble in PvP, it is going to hit me hard in PvE where I used Gambit on all the harder nodes and alliance events. This nerf is rough for me from a time/effort perspective since I used Gambit as a crutch to clear the harder nodes quickly and easily.   

    I currently have around low 900k in iso saved up (going to get to 1 Million since its been awhile).  I have more HP than I know what to do with and no CP or tokens saved up.  I have been pulling for JJ but doesn't look like I will get there with her. Unfortunately I am closer to getting Hobo Cap fully covered.  Some questions about my roster for other vets out there. 

    1.) Selling Gambit?  I don't think selling Gambit for tokens is a wise idea, even though I think he is going to be bottom tier after the nerf (maybe they will give him a small boost when nobody uses him anymore but I doubt it). If I really played PvP a lot, this would be a much tougher decision for me.

    2.) 3* Farming - Is it worthwhile?  So far I have taken a hybrid 3* farming approach.  Those 3* that I get to 266 that are fed by 2*, I am duplicating and farming.  3* that are not fed by 2* I am currently not farming (unless it is a really good 3* such as IM40 or maybe a few others).  The iso drain for farming all 3* just seems to be too much for me when I still have several 4* that I can champ instead.  What are other players thoughts on this? Roster slots is not a problem for me as my HP gain is more than enough to keep up with new releases.  

    3.) My ultimate goal at this point is to get about 3 more 5* max covered (hopefully Jessica Jones, Black Bolt and Hobo Cap).  That would give me 5 more 5* that I could champ + Gambit who is already champed.  At that point I could either start playing more PvP or help speed up PvP now that Gambit is no longer going to be as efficient for me.  Would a combination of Thor/DD/Black Bolt/Jessica Jones/Hobo Cap and nerfed Gambit be enough to stay competitive in the 5* land?
