    Terrified? Nah. I bet it'll be interesting and the game needs interesting.

    potentially, every character can be a 5-star!

    SO terrified. Beyond terrified. Afraid. Don't destroy my game!

    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.

    I would say that this is an excellent reason for the devs not to suggest offhand that they're about to change core game mechanics.

    CAN'T WAIT SO PSYCHED WHATEVER IT IS I'M FOR IT

    It sounds like it’s advancing Champing into a further prestige system. So if it means more rewards, I’m down.

    Might affect milestones I guess. If I am not rostering dupes I will be very old by the time I champ 250 four stars.

    No point worrying until we see details but I would hope I could convert my dupes into extra levels.

    CAN'T WAIT SO PSYCHED WHATEVER IT IS I'M FOR IT

    I have a feeling it's one of two things, and ideally a combination:

    1. A system to remove the champion level caps, where characters don't get stronger necessarily but new tiers of champ rewards open up.
    2. A way to increase the strength / level of lower tier characters so we can play with our entire roster, instead of just core teams at our tier and whomever the required character is. This would also let them build out the 1-, 2-, and 3-star tiers more, as they would once again be useful to all players.

    In either case, I'm looking forward to it as long as:

    • It just requires applying additional covers and not ISO or HP.
    • If we have dupes for farming purposes, they let us convert those to shards we can apply to the originals, and also give us the ISO we spent leveling them.

    Yeah, ISO-refunds are 1000% not happening.

    I was the one who asked the question about 4.5* but I should have known better. I should have known they could never be happy with a 0.5, it was always going to be tubular to the max. But 1* - I was hoping they were gonna bin them not make them champable!

    I hope we aren't made to wait Supports long level of time for some info on this terrible thing I may have inadvertently released on you all...

    Waiting for their claims that thousands of players have asked them to keep 1s and 2s relevant for much longer.

    I personally don't need them or want them to make 1/2/3* relevant again to my game. It's a ton of characters in a massive pool that I don't need to worry how they work anymore. I'm about there with the 4* tier too. I like that in a game bloated with them. For me you use them then outgrow them, I'm fine with that. It used to bother me that there was so many un-unused 5 years ago. Now there's so many I don't care. I don't even take my 4* from level 70 unless they are a game changer.

    I can live with 3* but no, no interest in the tiers below. The 4* tier is where it is horrifically bloated - that needs attention and not attention in making the 5* tier more bloated either!

    Although not Barbie track suit Miles...I think I am not going to worry so much about getting him.

    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.

    If it works anything like Balance of Power, the scaling on a jumped up 1* character is better than the scaling on a true-born higher star character. Ideally this new system isn't going to just borrow that code without a review. Also 1* iron man has a blue power that costs 15AP, so I'm expecting some thought is going to have to be given to those characters lol. 3* Iron Man with a 5* health pool would probably see some use.

    I guess the "publish to social media" button must be next to the "make coffee" button. It's an easy mistake to make. Especially if you have not had your coffee.

    Let's just calm down, Chicken Little, and see what it's about before we break out the pitchforks.

    I'm worried about the needed resources to progress. I don't have anyone at 550, but I also don't excel at champing the new releases every time. So I have to hoard a lot. This new change has the potential to punish players who miss out on new great/meta characters... so it could create fomo/anxiety about spending my limited resources. But I need to see how they attack it before freaking out. I don't have high hopes though

    Yeah, we have zero details about what this is, besides a weird picture of Iron Man with more stars on him. I don't think we can say what kind of players this will or won't affect, or how it'll change optimal roster strategies, or literally anything at all until we know what it is.

    Terrified is not the right phrase, but it does give me pause on using any resources in the short term. I rostered a 3rd Moonstone this morning rather than selling a dupe that just maxed as per normal farming.

    Intrigued and wishing they would provide the details promptly

    More curious than anything. If it is a system that lets you raise the star level of characters, I'm curious to see how that will play out with the current 3/5 release schedule that deploys scaled versions of the same kit.
