    Looking forward to being lied to again about how this has been highly requested just like auto-fire.

    Auto-fire admittedly does not fill me with confidence.

    Marvel Future Revolution (may it rest in peace--it was a beautiful game) had a really interesting mode in which your pre-built team fought other players' pre-built teams entirely on autopilot. It sounded terrible on paper but ended up being an interesting way to judge your customized characters' strengths and weaknesses. But auto-fire here... isn't that. I think I might be interested in seeing a completely automatic match to watch how the AI plays my team (might give some insight to defensive lineups), but just auto-fire is... weird. I'm still trying to figure out its purpose.

    I'm probably overreacting here, but I really am nervous that whatever this new overhaul is will change the game in ways that make me not want to play it.

    But seriously, let's see what they've got.

    I am getting a strong BUE-vibe (if you know, you know) for it... God, I hope I am wrong.

    Bring it on. I'm half-retired. What's the worst that could happen - I fully retire?
    I for one welcome my soon-to-be 5* Queen Polaris.

    But I do not know and now I want to know... Googling is not helping!

    Wonder how long they are going to wait to give the details.....
    After autofire update my confidence is low, but I really don't have super high expectations, so whatever happens happens.

    I'm not worried. Other games I've played have had similar systems, but characters that are upgraded from 1 star to a higher star were never as strong as ones that were naturally that high (lower HP and stats).

    I'm betting that if a character isn't naturally a 5 star they'll have a lower level cap as well. I very much doubt that 1 star iron man converted into a 5 star will be able to reach 550.

    We were nervous when Champion was originally teased and that worked out. This 2.0 looks interesting. If I can lift 2* Black Widow to a 5*, then she's already better than the current 5*

    I’m sure it can’t be worse but only better - and probably difficult to get more levels

    Games needs a radical shakeup, so I'm hype for it.

    Whatever it is, I wonder if we will get a shardmas kind of reward

    If it’s what I think it is then it’s going to be a massive overhaul of the game and duplicates could be a rarer requirement as we’ll be trying to level up our characters to 550

    Either way I hope we don’t have to wait too long

    This is the kind of news that doesn't need a teaser. You just give people anxiety while they speculate what in the world might happen. You shouldn't just hint that the fundamentals of the game may be about to radically change; just tell us once you have actual information to share.

    Ideally they'd outline a proposal and ask for feedback, do playtesting, etc. before forcing it on all users and then have to scramble if/when there's a backlash.

    But... I guess we'll see? ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    Think I saw this point of view somewhere in another thread. Needless to say, I agree with it.

    Erm...maybe just wait until they actually tell us what this is about and what's going to happen? This is like asking people how terrified they are of a 5* that will be released in summer 2024.

    Love the idea of promoting any tier character all the way up to the 5 star tier because there are interesting characters at lower tiers who would nicely play in the 5 star tier.

    But I have a funny feeling that's not what we are going to get. I would not be the least bit surprised if they just raised the champ level cap by say 50 levels on all tiers and add champ rewards to the 1 star tier (say 50 levels like 2 stars are now).

    As I said in the other channel where the conversation began, I suspect we'll be able to turn 4 stars into 5 stars as well. Or atleast in time. I remember so many times someone said "Great character 5 star character" but ended up being 4 star. Suddenly those characters are now 5 stars. 5 star Legion!

    Honestly I feel certain it includes 4 stars because many people have commented on 4 star characters saying how much they wished they were 5 stars. Additionally, for veteran players 4 stars don't really matter unless their Feeders are good. So the ability to upgrade 4 stars to 5 stars, means suddenly both new 3 stars and 4 stars can be very useful to even late game 5 star players.

    The downside however and what I fear. Is Champion levels only get so high by duplicate covers. So the question is how many 4 star covers would you need to upgrade them to 5 star?
