Hi Everyone,

To go along with the next Progression rewards based on wins test, we will be doing a mini Versus Season during the next off-season.

Between the Versus seasons of Space Gem and Power Gem we will be running a 1-off Versus Season called the Infinity Season. The Versus Season will consist of two Versus Tournaments, but will not have a S.H.I.E.L.D. Simulator Versus Tournament.

Players will earn progression rewards based on the amount of wins they have, rather than how many points they have earned. The season placement and progression rewards have been scaled to the length of the season itself (two events rather an 10). Events during this Versus Season will reward tokens to the Heroic cover store.

Event Details
  • Infinity Season starts Sunday, September 17 at 8am EDT and ends Friday, September 22 at 3pm EDT.
  • Nefarious Foes
    • Start Time: Sunday, September 17 at 8am EDT
    • End Time: Wednesday, September 20 at 3pm EDT.
  • Best Friends Forever
    • Start Time: Tuesday, September 19 at 8pm EDT
    • End Time: Friday, September 22 at 3pm EDT.
  • Infinity Season progression and placement rewards are scaled to a season that has only two Versus Tournaments.
    • 13 tiers of Progression Rewards
    • Top Progression reward is 67 wins
Update: The team investigated and confirmed that the Infinity Season would have ended 12 hours before Best Friends Forever ended. Due to this, we will have the Best Friends Forever event start early (it will be back-dated to start at 8:00am EDT today 9/19).

Starting the Best Friends Forever event early means that players in the first two time offsets (aka slices) will unfortunately have less time to participate in the event, and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

At this point we do not have any intentions of adjusting the Power Gem Season, or any other event, from its current schedule.

    How many wins for individual events progression? Will there be command points at the final progression or are those of the table again?

    @Brigby any information on the progression reward structure (how many fights won for each reward tier) based on CL as well as where the CP will be rewarded (progression only or progression and placement as last time)?

    Thanks.

    I will enjoy Nefarious Foes this time more than last, now that Mordo is champed.  Fear the purple!

    This sounds fun!  Looking forward to seeing more reward details, and playing!

    What's the top progression reward for 67 wins? CP? HP? A date with Krysten Ritter?

    Lololol. Everyone cried at 40. Now its 67? 

    I love it and hope it stays. 50 taps on some poor player per event coming right up

    Wow. I thought you'd left win based progression in a shallow grave alongside Boss Rush. That's where it belongs.

    67 for the season, not per event.

    67 for a 2 event season. So all the way down from 40 to 34. Still way too high.

    Thats disappointing. Was hoping it went higher

    Personally, I like this format. It's great for progression's sake having to win "x" amt of matches to get all the rewards and not have to be frustrated by losing a retaliation or some such. I'm curious about placement awards though... no mentions above about points, just the amt of wins needed to reach max progression for the season.

    Looks interesting!  I like mini-seasons and win-based progression.  Forget spending on shields! :)

    I believe it's the same as the previous Versus tournament structure where losses only count against you if you're going for placement; it does not affect your progression.

    When it comes to all the questions about individual event progression, and where the location of the previously-progression CP awards are, I will pass those along to the developers and update everyone with their response
