Uptie system

One crucial aspect of the Uptie system is the mechanic called ‘uptie,’ which assigns a tier from 1 to 3 to your characters. While a default 1-star unit may seem like a better choice than a 3-star unit at first glance, in reality, the opposite is true due to uptie.

To upgrade a unit’s tier, you must spend ‘threads’ that you can obtain by exchanging any character medal. Upgrading a tier not only significantly improves all skills but also unlocks a 3rd skill and a character passive.

The primary difference between 1 and 3-star units is the flat stats and the skill setup. A 3-star unit with uptie 1 only has a weaker version of skills and lacks the best skill outright, making them less powerful than their lower-star counterparts.

Default 1-star units and default EGO receive these upgrades for free upon completing chapter 1 and 2. However, 2-star units cost 10 and 40 threads for tiers 2 and 3, respectively, while 3-star units cost 20 and 80 threads. This investment may seem steep, especially for a unit you may not even use.

The main reason to invest in the uptie system is that you can have up to 5 EGO per character, each providing unique passive bonuses to make you more versatile. EGOs also have upties, making them the primary goal of free-to-play thread spending.

In summary, 1-star units are excellent early on because of the free upgrades they receive, making them a more powerful option than their 3-star counterparts. However, upgrading your units’ tiers through the uptie system can significantly improve their skills and unlock powerful character passives.
