lol

Decent alliance? Where in the transition are you (1*, 2*, 3-4*)? How's your PvE scaling?

I jump around from alliance to alliance if they're not active enough in events. I haven't stayed with any for a decent amount of time.

I have no idea what Transition is and I don't understand what PVE Scaling means....

Ah, got it.

I'm in a T100 "casual" alliance, transition is going from 1 to 2 to 3/4 star characters, and the PVE scaling was more of a joke. If you've ever noticed being seemingly outmatched by a fight in competitive PVE, that's community scaling hard at work...

Weird to call it a transition. You can't move the characters from one tier to the next, so why use that word?
I've got my team of 1-2 star for the Deadpool Daily, and everyone else is 3-4. I have 16 heroes.

I just googled. Holy crap, people talk/think about this game WAY more than I thought it was worth. I still don't understand this transition thing though. Like, I open a cover, I get a 4* character. Cool. How is this a transition? Is there some mechanic I don't know about? I got all of my 3-4 star covers just by playing and getting rewards. How are people making a choice to "transition out of 2*" or whatever.

Oooh boy, is that not a short conversation.

Put in as few words as possible, the idea is that 1s get you (most efficiently) to 2s which get you (most efficiently)to 3s, with 4s being largely a PvP goal.

The idea of transitioning is important because if you over-level things you ultimately hamstring yourself (ie: leveling one 3* over 94, which resets ALL of your scaling). Playing as a 1* player scales your game for PvE, etc. Playing as a level 94 2* is different, and the scaling reflects this. Anything over 94 (3*s up) puts you in a higher level group, hence even higher scaling.

Yeah, there's quite a bit to it. lol

OK. I think I understand this concept now. See, I was just playing and had no clue how any of this works. I had basically all 1-2 star, and then randomly, I got a 4 star Nick Fury, twice. I had him at a very high level, but his moveset was awful. It was some trap move where the opponent had to match my tile in order to do damage. It was worthless. And when I tried to do the PVP, I never had opponents my level and got stomped constantly. I delete for a few months and came back for the Ultron event. I did a Deadpool Daily and right away got an awesome 3 star Patch Wolverine. I trashed the Nick Fury to open up space for him, since he was never any good, and suddenly I was able to compete again. Everyone is below level 60, and I'm facing enemies I can actually go against in PVP.

This is crazy. They should make this stuff mroe obvious to users! If I had known what was up I would've trashed Fury a long time ago and kept playing.
