To celebrate the game's second anniversary, Avengers Academy 2.0 was released 6 February 2018, and featured major changes to combat, the Mission Board, and character rank-ups. It also added features such as your Academy Power Level, Stamina, and a new Hero Management board.
Recruiting Characters Edit
In order to recruit characters, players must now earn 10 Hero Shards for that character. For example, to recruit Daredevil, players must acquire 10 Daredevil Shards. Methods for acquiring Hero Shards varied from event to event, but were generally available from capsules or combat.
Combat was significantly overhauled, and is no longer restricted to just during events. Academy students are categorized into Types and Classes. They each have a unique Basic Attack, Special Attack, Passive trait, and two Ultimate abilities. A full list of all student traits are listed on the Combat Attributes article.
Combat is accessible through the new Campaign Map.
