Standard Leveling Intervals

  • Level 4
    • Before 2-3: If strong, push to win streak.
    • 2-3: Naturally, without spending gold.
  • Level 5
    • 2-5: Stay level 4 if aiming for a lose streak.
  • Level 6
    • 3-1: To contest or preserve a win streak, or if financially viable.
    • 3-2: Perfect interval.
  • Level 7
    • 3-5: Ideal if win streaking, wealthy, or keeping pace with the lobby. Aim for at least 30g if not win streaking.
    • 4-1: Strengthen your board before transitioning at 4-2.
  • Level 8
    • 4-2: Ideal for replacing headliners.
    • 4-5: Another perfect interval, less desirable due to headliner replacement.
  • Level 9
    • 5-2/5-5: Perfect intervals based on your economy.
    • 6-2: Perfect interval.

1-Cost Reroll Composition Leveling

  • Avoid leveling or rerolling until you hit your three-star 1-cost carry.
  • Level 4: Natural progression, roll for your carry at 3-1 with 8/10 XP.
  • Level 5: Roll above 50 gold until you find your carry, then push levels.
