Hiding certain in-game notifications

INTRODUCTION
For some time now, I have been bothered by the sheer amount of pop-ups I get on a daily basis while playing.
Examples of these are:
  • Your alliance earned you this reward
  • Your winning has earned you this reward
  • Your winning means this is the next reward

I accept the fact that more business type pop-ups like the following may not be read or opened as frequently in case of a format change, so I don't want to suggest changes to other messages like:
  • Mentioned of external marvel activity (new movie, game, tv-show)
  • Prompt to fill out a survey
  • Release note regarding new version (new characters being added or bigger changes)

But I think the reward based notification could just be saved in a notification center. For example, when I win a match in a tournament I have the following experience:
  1. "Victory" message appears
  2. "You won" screen - showing the overall progress of the tournament and for the specific round. Here I see if the progress bar ticks over and triggers a new reward
  3. I tap "Next"
  4. I see I got a new reward
  5. I tap "New rewards" to open it
  6. The reward opens and shows what I got
  7. I tap "Claim"
  8. Step 4-7 is repeated for each prize I have won - In case I played a match with multiple waves of enemies
  9. I get back to the mission screen
  10. A pop-up of what I just won appears
  11. I tap "Next"
  12. A Pop-up of what I can win if I keep playing appears
  13. I tap "Next"

And now I am ready to play a new match.
This seems like an unnecessary number of steps and taps, just to get the reward of a match. And I count the same information being delivered multiple times including:
  • What I have just won: 3 Times- during the progress bar, as I open the prize, and as a pop-up
  • What I can win next: 2 Times - during the progress bar and as a pop-up
And assuming I have played a match with 3 waves and won 1 reward in each of them, I counted 11 taps, just to verify I want my rewards.
11 taps!
And at no point do I have an option to say "no I don't want this" and cancel out. So that is 11 mandatory taps, to do something, which could easily be done in the background, without prompting the player to react to it.

THE SUGGESTION
Sorry for the long introduction, but I wanted to make the reason for the suggestion clear.
I suggest a notification center where the list of my won prizes and the next possible prize can be seen. Basically, like the progress bar screen, but across multiple tournaments and including a history of previous won prices.

In order to avoid a huge backlog for those players who will not use it, it could automatically clear out notification about passed tournaments a few days after the tournament has ended.

    Also a quick comment on the number of taps. Due to all of the animations, the player cannot simply spam-tap the screen, and have the information disappear in a few seconds.
    Since the buttons only load at the end of the animation the user has to wait for each individual animation to be over before he can proceed. This means the 11 taps can quickly become 30+ seconds of looking at animations and tapping the screen, in order to get to the next game.

    The "Options" menu (the gear symbol in the upper left corner) lets you disable push notifications - some or all. I have them all turned off. You can also turn off character animations there if they bother you.

    While that does work for animations, the Notifications that OP is talking about are not the same thing as the "Push Notifications" in the options.  Push Notifications are the annoying messages that show up in your device's status bar, even when the game isn't running.  The notifications he is talking about are the award splash screens after each match.

    Thanks for the reply. I have already turned off both push notifications and animations.
    I do actually like the animations, but like the pop-up notifications, they current prevent quick gameplay.
    I will create a new thread regarding those, as I have actually wondered about a better way of showing the animations.
