Item Changes[]

  • Phoenix Flare damage and stamina cost reduced slightly. Now starts with a 1 round cooldown
    • We hope these changes help mitigate use of this weapon being the “only valid strategy” for winning PVP. We want this to be a desirable weapon and worth the investment in completing the Spec Ops tasks, but recognize that it was causing negative effects on player diversity.

  • New PVP bonus items in the store for Silver and S.H.I.E.L.D. Points
    • Hellfire Club Mask
    • Depleted Iso-8
    • Fermionic Manipulator

Marvel: Avengers Alliance Tournaments and PVP[]

What’s New?
The next update to PvP is here!

  • Tournament seasons should now last approximately one month each
  • Players will be placed in Leagues as they climb the ranks on the leaderboard
  • Rewards! Players will be awarded based on their league level at the end of a season!
  • Every season will have different rewards, so make sure to compete every season!

Just like before, the start of a new season resets everyone’s Rating and placement on the leaderboards. As players compete, they will be placed in a League. By performing a required number of ranked PVP fights and attaining a high enough Rating, a player can be promoted to higher Leagues. If a player loses Rating or enough players surpass a player’s Rating, it is possible to fall back into a lower League.

Battle Reports - Tournament History
Battle Reports now has an additional tab unlocked which displays a player’s placement in recent PVP Tournaments. This displays the League they attained and which prizes they received.

New PVP Bonus Items
In order to allow more players to compete in PVP, we have added items that players can acquire for a combination of Silver and S.H.I.E.L.D. Points. These can help bridge the gap between new players and their opponents. In addition, there is now a button to filter PVP items in the Resources page of the store. Fill out your armory and stay on top of the competition!

At the end of each Tournament season, players earn prizes based on which League they are in at the end of the season. Remember it is possible to be demoted. Players must maintain their placement until the very end of the tournament to be considered for that league’s prize. Each League unlocks access to the next tier of prizes as well as awarding all lower tiers of prizes. For the first tournament, the prizes awarded are as follows.

  • Silver League

All players who participate in at least one Ranked PVP match gain access to the Silver League and qualify for the prize when the Tournament ends. The prize for Silver League is 100,000 Silver.

  • Gold League

Players who end in at least the Gold League will earn 10 gold!

  • Diamond League

Players who ascend to the Diamond League will earn an exclusive piece of gear for their Agent, the Focal Plasma Cannon.

  • Vibranium League

Players who manage to place in the Vibranium league at the end of the Season will be rewarded with the ability to research an exclusive Infiltrator uniform for their Agents. In addition to a brand new visual effect on this uniform, it grants players a constant 25% reduction to melee damage.

  • Adamantium League

The dedicated players who manage to finish Season 1 in the Adamantium League will unlock a brand new hero, Deadpool, for free, and have access to him for a month before he becomes available for purchase by all players.

- "Hey how's it going?"

Remember, tournament prizes are not awarded until the END of the Tournament. In the case of Season 1, that will be the first week of November 2012.
