📌 Detailed Explanation of important elements in Marvel Contest of Champions (MCOC) and how they’re connected:

1] Units: They’re the currency of the game. Very important. You can buy anything from it, anything. So you have to save it and not spend it recklessly. 

How to get Units? 
  • By doing Arena, Story Quest & Monthly Quest.
  • From Arena Crystal (Chances are 15%).
  • Buy from Unit Store.
  • Calendars/logins.

MCOC Units

Things you can buy with the help of units:
  • Alliance Tickets (For AQ Map 6 and above)
  • Gold (Occasionally)
  • Resources (Potions, Revives, Energy Refills)
  • Mastery Items (Stony cores, carbonadium core , mastery core

  • Profile Pics (Not recommended)
2] Battle-chips: They are the very useful element in the game. You can collect them by doing arena. Best use of battle-chips is to buy arena crystals which in turn gives you gold and units. 

MCOC Battlechips

They are used for:
  • Needed for alliance donations (Alliance Tickets) to play higher AQ maps (Map 6 and above)

6. Alliance Quests:
  • Alliance quests in MCOC are similar to other solo quests in the contest, but you gotta compete in Alliance quests with other Summoners!
  • These quests are only available while the Alliance quest event is running a new event starts every 8 days, and lasts for 5 days. Meaning there's a three day gap between each event.
  • When the event is live, the leader and officers of your Alliance can choose to begin an Alliance Quest Map.

7. Alliance War:
  • In Marvel Contest of Champions (MCOC) Alliance Wars requires teamwork and coordination from you and your Alliance mates to strategically defeat your opponents.
  • Wars consist of 3 phases: Matchmaking, Defender Placement and Attack phases.
  • Certain Champions are better suited for Defense while others are better for Offense.
  • Your Alliance will be placed in a Bracket based on the amount of Points earned in a Season. Each Bracket has its own set of rewards. The higher the Bracket the better the rewards.

What is Mastery and how it works in Marvel Contest of Champions (MCOC)?

Activate Summoner Masteries to enhance your Champions. Access Masteries through the Summoner Profile. Recover your Mastery Points as often as you’d like to create optimal setups for every game mode!  

Video Guide about Mastery Setup By Official MCOC Channel:

  • You first unlock Masteries when you reach level 6. And from there, as you progress through The Battlerealm, you’ll receive additional Mastery points each time you level up.
  • Masteries are organized into 3 different categories. i.e Offense, Defense and Proficiencies.
  • Each sub category will contain different traits that once ranked up, will provide new or enhanced abilities to the Champions on your roster. Most Masteries will enhance all your Champions, but some will be class-specific.
  • Clicking on each node of a Mastery tree will display information on the selected Mastery, including its name, current rank, and how it will affect your roster. Additionally, it will also display if there are any requirements that are needed to be met before activating the selected Mastery.
  • In the same way that you and your Champions can be levelled up, so too can your Masteries.
Keep in mind - Don't copy your teammates mastery setup. Bcoz their setup is based on what type of champions they have (Attacker, Defender, Utility) and their playstyle (Aggressive or Defense).  If you want deep knowledge about mastery then checkout following link..

📌 Try to avoid following Noob Mistakes when you start playing Marvel Contest of Champions (MCOC) Game:

  • This game is running/operate via online server so don't use any kind of Modified APK/MOD App if u found then result will be Permanent Ban.
  • Don't use Android Emulators like Bluestacks, GameLoop etc etc.. this is also against Marvel Contest of Champions Terms of Services result will be Permanent Ban.
  • Don't share your ID with your Friends or Alliance Teammates for any type of completion in game this is also against Marvel Contest of Champions Terms of Services result will be Permanent Ban. If you wants to create another game id then make it and play on different device. Don't play both game id's with same device.
  • Don't buy/purchase units from 3rd party or Don't pay someone for completion in game if you found result will be Permanent Ban.
  • Don't sell any tier champs specially 1 star or 2 star champs otherwise you can't complete specific events like Variant 4.
  • Don't use units on "Premium Hero Crystals" the result is horrible 😑 I hope KABAM will improve drop rates of crystal in upcoming days.
  • Don't waste units on buying profile pics. 😠 
  • Join alliance once you build enough champ roster team like minimum 11 good champs of collection[3 champs for alliance quest attack, 3 champs for alliance war attack, 5 champs for defense placement for alliance war], after joining alliance check alliance status like how many player are active, How Leader & Officer's lead alliance if you like the environment then stay in alliance otherwise find another alliance. 
  • If your prestige is low and don't have enough champ roster then don't expect Higher Tier Alliance. They are not going to invite you and luckily you joined there then within few mins someone will kick you for sure.
  • Don't Rankup unwanted champs or Don't Apply Awakening Gem & Signature Stones on any champ without any knowledge. To know more details about Awakening Gem Click Here.
  • Don't forget to unlock Important Mastery Points. And Build Perfect Mastery Setup as per your Champs.
  • Watch some videos or Check out some article to get some knowledge of how to use particular champ learn that champ ability. Learn Combo Hit Tips/Tricks. Learn how to do Parry, How to evade basic hits and special attack of opponent and How to bait special attack.
  • Don't fight with linked node in Alliance Quest or Alliance war. If you stuck on any node then call backup team or ask your Leader & Officer about how to fight on that node or simple do Google/YouTube about it.
  • Spend Energy on Story Quest as well as Monthly Quests and collect some good rewards, Participate in Alliance events, Play arena for particular champs these is the way to build your solid team. Try to achieve "Uncollected Title" in Story Quest to Unlock some rewards like daily crystal and other opportunity's.. After that your aim should be 100% Act 5 of Story Quest and Then "Cavalier Title".
  • Don't let your alliance pressure you to spend units or money.
