Marvel Avengers Alliance PvP Basic Guide



Marvel Avengers Alliance PvP Basic Guide by mahabone

This guide is designed to help new players who are interested in participating in PvP. Experienced players will probably find no useful information here, and it is primarily here to help free players succeed at PvP.

Classes
Each class (excluding Generalist) provides a bonus against another class, and has a counter class also. This is akin to rock-paper-scissors – Blasters beat Bruisers who beat Scrappers who beat Infiltrators who beat Tacticians who beat Blasters.

Below is a list of classes, their bonus and a pictorial of the current line-up.

Tacticians
Gain a bonus turn after attacking Blasters

Blasters
All hits against Bruisers are critical hits and ignore defense

Bruisers
Gain enraged when attacking or attacked by scrappers (extra damage per enraged max of 2)

Scrappers
Performs a free follow up attack when attacking Infiltrators

Infiltrators
Gains combat awareness when attacking tacticians (improves odds of counter attacking)

Who Do I Choose to Add to my PvP Party?
Besides your main toon, you have two slots to fill with your super powered friends. Below i have listed the free toons that you receive. The top row are the freebies all players get, and the bottom row is a list of heroes from the end of Chapter 1. You will get to pick one of these bottom rowers for free, and from then on you must pay for any new recruits.

Your team will consist of two of these heroes as will about 90% of your enemies PvP team.

As i said above you will get a free hero at the end of Chapter 1, to help maximize your ability in PvP take a look at the above picture. Notice Bruisers and Scrappers only have 1 each. If you choose Iron Fist the only free hero that gets a bonus against you is She-Hulk, but you get a bonus against two potential heroes, Black Widow and Invisible Woman.

She-Hulk makes for a weaker team as you have both Iron Man and Ms Marvel critting on her like crazy, and choosing Ms Marvel for your team means only having one potential target to gain a bonus against.

Blasters in general are weaker in PvP as their primary target is Bruisers, which there are only 5 and 2 of them cost 130 cp. Even so Iron Man is a power house (and on many teams) so having a Tactician on Board like Hawk Eye can help neutralize Mr Stark.

This then leads us to Your toon, what uniform should you choose to help you in PvP?

I see two available options, Scrapper or Tactician. As a scrapper you only have to worry about She-Hulk in a line up, and as a Tactician you can smack around Iron Man.

Option 1
Your agent as a Scrapper, Iron Fist and Hawk Eye

Option 2
Your agent as a Tactician, Iron Fist and Black Widow

My time is short atm, so i will continue this post shortly. Remember this is just my opinion, and should only be taken as such… the goal as always is to play the game how you feel and have fun.

Excelsior!

  1. its best to have your agent as tactician since most people have a blaster the ideal team is a blaster,a tactician and an infiltrator since a lot of people have tacticians like cyclops and its good to have a blaster to deal with bruisers especially the hulk he's so annoying and very hard to beat without a blaster sometimes almost unbeatable

  2. Choosing the starter scrapper is the worse choice you can make. Also always PVP with your agent as tactician, it has the least disadvantage.

  3. Actually – the above is completely wrong. Since you are going in blind – you should be using the Tactitian suit as it gives you the best bonus with the least hurtful downfall.

    Target their blaster, get two actions. Done. No blaster? Thats ok – dont target their infiltrator until the end

  4. Class suits for your Agent should only be used on the map and not in PvP. Since you're going into a PvP blind, you need the advantage only a Generalist suit can give.
