MAA: Maximizing Command Points (New CP Farming Method)

A good walkthrough on how to maximize your command points. How to Farm those command points!

Remember that in each boss roulette we have a chance to earn 1,3 or 5 CP and in an epic boss roulette we have a chance for 3,5 or 10 CP and also the epic drop

Normal Missions:
CH1 M1:
Boss:Viper(Generalist XP:65)
Team up:Hawkeye(Tactician)
Minibosses:None Epic Boss: None

Other battles: 2 low threats(20 XP each) Pro: This mission is very short and easy, you only need 30 energy to finish it, so for every 60 enegy you have 2 chances at the roulette, plus XP. You can do this mission 4-5 times in the day( Not considering energy gifts).

Con: The problem with this mission is the other rewards of the roulette, the weapons that you can get here are kind of useless even for PVP slot, so if you are unlucky you can end with a bunch of consumables and a poor weapon.

CH1 M2:
Boss: Whiplash(Scrapper XP:65)
Team up: Iron Man(Blaster)
Epic Boss: None
Deploys: Hawkeye(1 battle)
Other battles: 2 low threats, 1 Medium Threat(50 XP)

Pro: You can get to the boss roulette of this mission with 30 energy. First fight the medium threat, then do the deploy, fight a low threat, collect your deploy reward and finally fight with Whiplash. This mission is better than 1.1, the difficulty is basically the same but you can get a consumable with the deploy.

Con: Like 1.1, except for the CP, the rewards in the roulette are poor. With the new roulette system you might get a high PVP bonus item, but I'd rather get 5 CP than 10 of those.

CH7 M3:
Boss:Jack O'lantern(Blaster XP(fighting with miniboss):145 )
Team up: Black Cat(Infiltrator)
Minibosses:Vector(Blaster XP:115 )
Epic Boss: Green Goblin(Scrapper XP:200) Epic Drop: Goblin Glider
Deploys: any hero(1 battle), any hero(1 battle), 1 tactician(3 battles), Spiderman(2 battles), 1 scrapper(1 battle)
Other battles: 4 low threats(55 XP each), 4 high threats(105 XP each)

Pro: You can also get to the boss roulette of this mission with only 30 energy. First fight Vector and then do some of the deploys, do a high threat and collect your deploy rewards, finally fight with the boss for the roulette. The XP here is good and also the weapons are a lot more better than in CH1 M1.

Alternative Path: 1 high threat, 1 deploy, 1 high threat, 2 bird boss. (Of course you can do more deploys)

Con: The problem here is if you want the goblin glider(one of the best epic drops), you'll need spiderman(90 CP) and also a lot more of energy in order to acces to epic boss. If you want to get this drop, it's better if you fight the boss and the miniboss together to save 10 energy.

CH4 M4:
Boss: Vapor(Infiltrator XP(fighting with miniboss): 140)
Team up: Invisible Woman(Infiltrator)
Minibosses:Fixer(Blaster XP:100)
Epic Boss: Magneto(Tactician XP:200)
Epic Drop: Magnetic Field Generator(MFG)
Deploys: 1 scrapper(2 battles), any hero(1 battle), any hero(2 battles), storm(2 battles)
Other battles: 3 medium threats, 2 high threats

Pro: You can finish all this mission(including the epic boss and a 2 bird) with 70 energy, that means a boss roulette and an epic boss roulette. The MFG is of the most useful gadgets in the game, so if you don't have it, is a good idea to try this mission. It's true you will need 70 energy, but that' just 10 more energy of doing twice CH7 M3 or CH1 M1, also the epic boss roulette has better CP rewards(not considering the epic drop)

Con: You need to deploy Storm in order to acces the epic boss, this mission requires a little bit more of energy, if you are unlucky that could be a waste. Magneto is not a difficult epic boss..... but he can be really, really annoying because he's always using shields and particular debuffs. The 2 bird battle with Vapor can be hard, specially if you don't have Invisible woman, she appears at level 6, so be careful.

CH3 M5:
Boss: Green Goblin(Scrapper XP(fighting with minibosses): 165) Team up:Hawkeye(Tactician)
Minibosses: Vulture(Tactician XP:85), Sandman(Bruiser XP:80)
Epic Boss: Dr.Doom(Blaster XP:190)
Epic Drop: Doombringer
Deploys:Black Widow(1 battle), Spiderman(2 battles), Blaster(1 battle), Tactician(2 battles)
Other battles: 2 low threats, 2 medium threats, 1 high threat

Pro:You can finish all this mission(including the epic boss and doing a three bird) with 80 energy, that means a boss roulette and an epic boss roulette. The Doombringer is a very useful gadget and it's worth of getting.10 more energy than CH4 M4,but if you don't have the doombringer, is a good idea to try this mission.

Con: You have to do the deploys as soon as they are available, otherwise you will use more than 80 energy. Also, if you want to figth the epic boss you will need spiderman. The epic boss is not difficult, just bring 2 tacticians and you should be fine( For more information see the Epic boss thread).

UPDATE: An extra thread was added to this mission so now it costs 80 energy to finish it(including epic boss and 3 bird)

CH3 M4:
Boss: Sabretooth(Scrapper XP(fighting with minibosses):115) Team up: Kitty Pride(Infiltrator)
Minibosses: Toad(InfiltratorXP: 95)
Epic Boss:None
Deploys:Colossus(2 battles), Infiltrator(1 battle), any hero(1 battle), any hero(1 battle)
Other Battles: 2 low threats, 2 medium threats, 2 high threats

Pro:You can finish this mission with 30 energy by doing 2 deploys and fighting a medium and a high threat. This mission has more deploys than CH1 M2 so you can get more consumables, also the XP is not bad.

Con: In order to be able to finish this mission with 30 energy you need to deploy Colossus(23 CP), also sometimes I had to use 40 energy in this mission because the deploys appeared too late. Suggestion: If you just want to spend 30 energy, make sure you have 2 available deploys when you start this mission(The Colossus deploy always appears) do them inmediately and do the high or medium threats. Just abort the mission until you see 2 available deploys. The battle with Sabretooth can be hard if you don't have Kitty pride, she appears at level 6 even if the mission is with 5 stars.

All CH12 missions except for CH12 M6:

Pro: In CH12 you can finish M1, M3, M4 and M5 with only 10 energy(1 boss roulette). CH12 M2 is extra special, you'll get 2 roulettes, The Boss and Epic Boss roulettes, for only 20 energy, if you want to farm CP very fast DON'T 5 star this mission, if you also want to level up your agent or heroes try challenge mode.

Con: The battles can be quite challenging so be ready to use some consumables because if you lose the battle you are going to need more energy. For CH12 M2 you'll need to deploy Kitty Pride in order to acces the epic boss fight. Finally, to have access to the final Chapter of season 1, you'll need 30 heroes and several mastery stars(I don't remember the number).

Note: In this chapter you'll see almost all the bosses and minibosses from season 1 including SO. That means you are going to fight Satana, Mephisto, Dragoness, etc.

Premium Missions:

You need to have a specific hero in order to do a particular premium mission, however these missions have good rewards, in every Boss roulette you have the chance to receive 2 good weapons, 1,3 and 5 CP.

CH5 M6:

Boss: Militant(Scrapper XP(fighting with minibosses): 230) Team up: War Machine(Tactician)
Boss Drops: Power of Four, Super Blade Punch
Minibosses: Bowman(InfiltratorXP: 85), Hammer(Blaster XP: 85)
Epic Boss: None
Deploys: Iron Man(2 battles), Hawkeye(2 battles), Scrapper(1 battle), Blaster(2 battles), any Hero(1 battle)
Other Battles: 3 medium threats, 3 high threats

Pro: You can finish this mission with 40 energy, do the deploys as soon as possible, fight only the high threats(or medium if you can't do a high) and do a 3 bird. The Super Blade Puch is a very good weapon if you are below level 100 and the Power of Four is good for PVP and if you want to level your agent slowly.

Con: You need to recruit War Machine if you want to play this mission, doing 3 bird here can be quite challenging if you don't have good weapons or your heroes are low level, remember that if you lose a fight you'll need more energy.

CH7 M6:
Boss: Vector(Blaster XP(fighting with minibosses):200)
Boss Drops: Handheld Hohlraum, Cosmic Ray Bomb
Minibosses: Vapor(InfiltratorXP: 75), Ironclad(Bruiser XP:75)
Deploys: Invisible Woman(3 battles), Thing(2 battles), Scrapper(1 battle), any hero(1 battle), any hero(1 battle)
Other Battles: 3 low threats, 2 medium threats, 3 high threats

Pro: You can finish this mission with 40 energy if you deploy Invisible Woman(the first deploy), fight only high threats(if you can't, do a medium), do another deploy and finally 3 bird the bosses. The Boss drops are useful(especially the CRB)and have a good PVP bonus.

Con: You need to recruit Human Torch to play this mission, also you need Invisible Woman if you want to finish it with 40 energy(in the worst case Thing too). I must warn you, 3 birding the U-foes is one of the most difficult battles in the game, you are going to need some consumables, strong heroes and a good strategy, otherwise you are going to lose the battle.

You have the option to re-spin the roulette for 5 gold, if you are farming CP NEVER do this. 5 gold = 10 CP which is the max number of CP you can get in a epic boss roulette.

For every mission you 5 star you'll get 5 CP. You can 5 star everything and then start farming CP for the heroes you want.

I suggest to the new players to get the cheapest heroes first(Ms. Marvel, IW, Shulkie, etc) don't let the cost fool you, this heroes are very powerful, besides you need to increase your roster in order to unlock more chapters.

Avoid changing gold for CP, I know is tempting to do it when you want a new hero or a new suit, but if you have patience and keep trying, eventually you'll get all the CP you need without spending any gold. Save your gold for stuff you can't get in a roulette. An useful guide in how to spend your gold wisely is this one.

Special Operations and PVP heroes:
In the special operations we have the chance to recruit a new hero by completing some tasks. However, with the exception of special operations 1, we have always needed to deploy some specific heroes to complete the epic boss task, therefore, it's a good idea to always have some CP. I don't know which heroes are going to be required but there's a very high chance you may need heroes that were recently released.

Playdom has already re-released 2 of the special operations heroes, Mockingbird and Emma Frost, so if you miss one of this special heroes, you may be able to recruit them in the future, but keep in mind that these heroes are re-released for a limited time(usually a few days) and the price is high(200 CP). I want to mention that you can get Mockingbird if you play MAI(Marvel Avengers Initiave), but you will need to defeat taskmaster 3 times and of course link your accounts using Marvel XP.

PVP heroes are the ones you receive for placing in the adamantium league at the end of the season, however, these heroes become available for everyone 1 month after the end of the tournament. So far we have Deadpool and Cable available, both of them at 135 CP, most likely psylocke, punisher and all future PVP heroes will be 135 CP too.
