With 16 seasons of PVP—three-on-three battles where players pit their best characters against one another—in the books for “Marvel: Avengers Alliance,” the folks behind the hit game have decided to shake things up and make the experience better than ever.
“PVP Season 17 is coming,” says game producer Justin Woods. “The reward for Adamantium League is going to be Karnak of the Inhumans and there will be Lockbox rewards tied to the daily bonus as we’ve seen in the past with characters like Juggernaut and those will be to earn Fixer’s collection.
“However, what’s a little bit different about what we’re doing with PVP 17 is that we’re going to introduce the concept of pre-seasons to our PVP repertoire. And what a pre-season is is a very short tournament right before the main season takes place that has, first of all, a much higher chance for everyone to get Adamantium, Vibranium, Diamond, and Gold leagues. The rewards are built around the concept of making you better for the next PVP season. Leagues will award Gold, Silver, CP and the next tier PVP armory items, to help bolster your PVP bonus, before they are purchasable.”
The pre-season concept will not only help players prep for the upcoming tournaments, but improve their arsenals and teams overall.
“We’re really excited about this because the tournament is shorter, it’s easier to get the rewards, and the rewards will help you in the next season,” explains Woods. “We’re actually going to be rolling out two pre-seasons prior to this season 17. But beyond that, we will only do one pre-season for each regular season.
“The first pre-season, which we’re calling pre-season Alpha, will introduce a new matchmaking system that’s going to make matchmaking feel a lot [fairer] and then pre-season Beta which comes shortly after that will actually be introducing our long announced level cap tournament system. That’ll give us an opportunity to see how the level cap tournaments are working and make any tweaks that we need to make before the real season 17 begins.”
The changes to PVP come about as part of the “Avengers Alliance” teams ongoing commitment to making every aspect of the game more fun as well as friendly to players, taking their feedback into account.
“We’re really excited to finally be bringing these major PVP improvements as well as shorter PVP tournaments which is something that people have been asking for for a really long time,” says Woods. “The regular PVP seasons are still going to be in that 20 days to a month long period of time but there’re going to be a couple of shorter tournaments between each of those.”
