What is Alliance Wars ?

In Marvel Contest of Champions (MCOC) The Alliance War setup is somewhat similar to Alliance Quests, but instead of battling Symbioid teams, you have to fight with another alliances like your own Team/Battle Group. Another feature of the Alliance War is that you get to see something new, like Matchmaking, Defense Placement Strategy, Win- Loss Point table and some awesome Rewards...  

The Alliance Leadership (Leader & Officer) will have to start Alliance War  similar to Alliance Quest.

Similar to Alliance Quests, any Champions you use in Alliance Wars will be locked in until the War is completed. While placing your defensive team, they cannot be used in Alliance Quests, but can be used in any other Quests (Story, Event, Daily, etc). Once the attack phase begins, your defensive team is locked and cannot be used in other Quests until you complete or clear your Battle Group in Alliance War.

Alliance Wars (AW) are the alliance's primary source of 3 star, 4 star, 5 star and 6 star shards. The goal of the event is to capture (and defeat) your opponents boss, and in the process explore the various nodes (challenges) your opponents have set for you.
So make a perfect Strategy for war & for communication purpose use WhatsApp , Line App or use in game chat.

It's important that which paths should be cleared first so other paths can be explored, so discuss with your team mates before moving or clearing nodes. Recently (2017-2018) KABAM and MCOC Team comes with Alliance War Season - Latest Maps, New Nodes and some Awesome Rewards too...  😀

  1. We place a 5/65 Havok on the Main Boss node and it usually gets us several kills per war. I think you should include him on the Main Boss suggestions.

  2. You war points calc is incorrect. On the harder map, there are 165 nodes to get attack bonus for (55 per BG).

    1. Thanks for correcting me. 🙏🏻

      Article is updated now with some changes. 😀

      If you have any suggestion pls let me know here..

  3. Very useful guide

    1. Thank You.. Don't forget to share this article with your Alliance Teammates 😀

  4. I literally refer to this defender placement guide EVERY SINGLE WAR. Thanks

    1. Thanks for the feedback :)
      I'll try my best to keep this post updated..

  5. !!! WaaaaW !!!! THIS !!!! IS !!!! PERFECT !!!

  6. Shared with Alliance, Super helpful guide all around... Every officer in every Alliance should be reffering to this guide for placement... great job mate

  7. Could anyone suggest which nodes would be beneficial for using Apocalypse on defense in AW. Thanks in advance.

    1. Most top tier alliances use him as their boss

    2. We recently had Apocalypse on node 52 (final boss) and he earned 10 defensive kills! Not sure if it was a one-off but we will try him again soon I'm sure....

  8. Immortal Abom awakened would be great on node 50 as he starts with 3 poisons and poisons count for double the node effects... insane attack and power gain

  9. I can't see terrax in your placement (tier 1 to 12)...isn't he an above average defender?? On wich nod should he be place??


    1. We place our Terrax on node 36 in tier 6-9 and he easily gets at least 5 kills per match.

  10. Hello everyone.
