Hi Everyone,

Following Wednesday's (3/14) daily patch, the Champion Rewards for Drax (The Destroyer) will be updated to award Star-Lord (Awesome Mix Volume 2). Star-Lord (Awesome Mix Volume 2) will be added to Drax's Champion Rewards, similarly to how they were added to the previous 4-Star characters.

The covers will be rewarded at the following Champion levels: 
  • Level 280: Yellow
  • Level 300: Purple
  • Level 320: Green
  • Level 340: Yellow
  • Level 350: Purple
  • Level 360: Green
If you'd like the champion reward breakdown, check out the original announcement here: Updates to 4-Star Champion Rewards

In additions, players will be able to earn additional Drax covers by placing well in the current run of Hearts of Darkness or through progression rewards during the Webbed Wonder event that starts on Thursday (3/15).

    R4G or Yondu might have been better choices. I don't see a lot of champed Drax out there.

    Oh thank goodness it's not X-Force Wolvie giving out OML yet. I don't have the ISO to pour into him...

    Good update. I don't have much for 5* Star Lord.

    That seems to be by design when you consider who they've picked as feeders recently: Sandman, Kingpin and now Drax...   not very popular characters.

    This makes sense. They are just saving you from leveling classics, you know the garbage ones no one wants....

    Dang. I predicted this when I saw Drax as the reward for Hearts of Darkness, given the time frame of feeder announcements. It's a) stupid that they picked Drax instead of 4SL, and b) double stupid that it's a 4* that is unpopular and likely not well leveled thanks to the old vaulting.

    You guys really need to speed up the process of the 5* feeders, at least to catch up to all the classics before slowing down to allow for latests to stay unique for a while. And on top of that you really need to work on updating the 3 to 4* champ rewards too...

    Facade of progress strikes again. Are 5 star feeders now just a different form of shield training? Sure looks like it.

    My 272 Drax and 0/1/3 SL don't care for this.

    3* Starlord and 3* Gamora reward 4* Starlord who rewards no one.
    3* Rocket and Groot reward 4* Drax who rewards 5* Starlord.
    No one rewards 4* Gamora who rewards 5* Thanos.
    No one rewards 4* Rocket and Groot.
    And 3* Thanos rewards Spider-Woman.
    I was feeling neutral about this until you laid it out this way, but now it just feels weird.

    LOL. So let me get this straight.  4* SL doesn’t feed 5* SL.  Man this make no sense at all.  Do you just pull names out of a hat for this?  
    Acting like decisions you don't like must have been randomly pulled out of a hat is obnoxious.
    I think he’s pointing out the fact that Starlord does not reward Starlord. If I were to devise a logical feeder for 5* Starlord it would be....4* Starlord. Or it might be Gamora, his love interest. Or Yondu his father figure. 

    Drax has a connection to Starlord, but less than the others. He should feed 5* Mantis or Ronin. Something like that.

    If they make a change to the 3* champ rewards and stop double rewarding 4SL from Gamora and 3SL, maybe this will make more sense. On the other hand, it would be hard(er) to get Drax covers without a feeder, so does that mean that 3RG will keep feeding Drax instead of the more logical 4RG?

    why can't people just comment without others jumping all over them. chill. 
  • rbdragonrbdragon Posts: 479 Mover and Shaker
    Personally, I'm not surprised it's Drax. I think it's by design - make the feeders a less used/champed character to make people decide to put resources into them, thus making them think of spending more when their resources are depleted. It's a sound business decision, albeit a (probably) more unpopular one.

    Eventually 4*SL will give 5*SL covers...probably...maybe...but not yet.

    Contrary to the popular belief of these forums, you can express an opinion without being toxic about it. Case in point, many others in this thread have done just that. I get the overall sentiment, but it can be expressed in a constructive manner, and being hateful and mocking isn't necessary to get your point across.

    Besides, it's silly to get up in arms about. The update says "Drax will give 5* Star Lord covers" not "Drax will give 5* Star Lord covers and 4* Star Lord will never ever ever ever ever get to do that." 4*s greatly outnumber 5*s, it would be plenty easy for them to have more than one 4* that feeds any given 5*, and it makes sense to rotate those out over time. There is no 5* Mantis or Ronin, and making Drax more useful by letting him grant Star Lord covers isn't a bad thing. Further, there's absolutely nothing stopping them from having Drax feed Captain America, and making Spider-Woman feed Star Lord instead (and I bet we'll have weird matchups like that before all is said and done, it won't all line up 100% perfect), so getting bent out of shape when the devs try to make a thematic link and don't do the one you want is silly.

    So when the devs say "We're changing things so that you get FREE 5* COVERS!" and people go "UGH, not 4* Star Lord? Do you even know what you're doing?" the ungrateful childish whining irks me a little bit.
    Talk about an overreaction. 

    And they arent free 5* covers. They’re earned by building your roster and placing at the top of brackets like zerokarma. This was a poor decision on multiple levels. Maybe lesser rosters and players have different attitudes because it doesn’t make a difference to them one way or another
