Starting last April 24th and lasting for a week, one is able to earn currency called the Silver Promotion Credits and higher amounts of Gold when the Alliance that you are part of reaches boxes of rewards that go beyond 3-5. You can grind and work through all the limit of 5 reward boxes per daily with the Alliance you are a part of to earn more of the special Silver Promotion Credits to level up to a 5-Red Star Marvel character of your choosing. To participate in this limited event you must be in an Alliance first!
If you don’t know what an Alliance is, it is considered a guild system for Marvel Strike Force. Up to 24 people can be in one Alliance and you must be at least level 20 to join, it may seem steep but the benefits are great such as being able to participate in Alliance Raids and Alliance Wars, and it allows you to use the Alliance Donation function.

Guide for New Commanders
There are 5 classes in Marvel Strike Force and the best Strike Team always has one of each.
- Controller characters are focused on removing enemies Buffs and inflicting status ailments like Bleed and and Stun, they help weaken the enemies for you. But most are rather frail or have low HP or defense.
- Brawler characters are quite well rounded and as their name implies they usually do their damage melee style they have good ATK and HP. Not as strong as Blasters but they can definitely outlast them.
- Blaster characters are long ranged fighters that can do a lot of damage, their attacks can usually hit multiple targets and it’s possible to defeat various enemies at once, be careful as they can’t take much themselves so have some healing ready.
- Protector characters are like your own personal bodyguards with their ability to redirect attacks to themselves with Taunt and with their high DEF they can definitely take the punches. Sadly their ATK power is not very high but that’s a small price to pay for the value they bring to the team.
- Support characters are the one that holds down the entire team. Need healing Buffs or maybe removing enemy Buffs? Support’s got your back, some can even revive defeated party members remember all Strike Teams need good support to help them alive.
Make sure to plan your team accordingly before you take on a mission.
