Marvel Future Fight: A beginners view

I have been playing the mobile game Marvel Future Fight for the last 2 months and wanted to share my impressions and knowledge. It plays very fluidly on my LG G5 with the Snapdragon 820. The game has lots of depth and different play modes.


After 58 days of playing, I was finally able to clear 5/5 World Bosses, which prompted me to write this blog post. I have 15 x 6★ and 3 Tier 2s.

My Roster is:
TeamCharacterTier 2Rank/MasteryGearUniformRole
1Ancient One★★★★★★15NoneLead
1Sharon Rodgers★★★★★★20Starlight (Rare)DPS
2Iron Fist★★★★★★20Iron Fist (Rare)Lead/DPS
2Black Widow☆☆☆☆☆☆12NoneFill

4Kate Bishop☆☆☆☆☆☆5NoneFill
5Spider-Man★★★★★★20Homecoming (Normal)Lead/DPS
5Thor☆☆☆☆☆☆20Ragnarok (Rare)DPS
5Black Bolt☆☆☆☆☆☆15NoneFill

Here is who each team took out
1: Thanos
2: Ebony Maw
3: Proxima
4: Black Dwarf
5: Proxima

My cards are nothing special, but my cards plus level 21 alliance give me 43.2% skill cooldown reduction (SCD), which means that I am slightly below the 50% cap after most characters gears. Ideally, I would like this capped on all characters.

Here are my tips for a newly starting player:
  1. Sharon Rodgers should be your main. Get her to T2 and get her uniform. Focus on her as she can clear lots of content quite easily.
  2. Start the "Hero's Journey" as soon as possible. There is no longer a "Journey of Growth"
  3. Start both Epic Quests as soon as possible. Save your Norn Stones and other materials for completing the quests.
  4. Get Sharon a good leader to really boost her damage to help you clear additional content. Ancient One and Starlord are 2 good options. You can also use Sharon Carter as support to get ~5% SCD if you are lacking there.
  5. Loki can solo Black Dwarf at T1. I use Ironman as lead to cap his SCD. Just keep your barrier up, stay out of trouble, and keep dropping your clones.
  6. If you get a card with SCD, I would equip it and then work on replacing it with one with better stats later. My top 4 cards are farmable from dimension rifts and can all get SCD.
  7. Get in an Alliance. The skill cooldown is a great boost, and you gain access to additional content like Alliance Battle that can get you some Norn stones and Bios.
  8. SHIELD Lab: Start upgrading the buildings as you have extra gold. Use gold to buy Norn Stones and Dimension debris and maybe some gear kits as you need them.
  9. Buy the "Stark's Stash" for $3.49. You will get VIP Level 1 for doing this. It will over double the gold you can earn from Co-Op play and have your dimension rifts drop more dimension debris.
  10. Run Co-Op play on Quick match, you should get a minimum of 20% for each character you use and don't have to worry about getting kicked by the leader
  11. Increasing the number of 4★ Level 40 characters you own will increase the quality of rewards you can earn in Co-Op. However, it also increases their cost.
    • Stage 1: Don't Remember (Costs 2? clear tickets each for rewards 2-5)
    • Stage 2: ~160k gold (Costs 4? clear tickets each for rewards 2-5)
    • Stage 3: ~240k gold (Costs 8 clear tickets each for rewards 2-5)
    • Stage 4: ~315k gold (Costs 12 clear tickets each for rewards 2-5)
    • Stage 5: ~400k gold (Costs 14 clear tickets each for rewards 2-5)
    • Stage 6: ? gold (Costs 16? clear tickets each for rewards 2-5)
