Player Vs. Player (PVP)
There were different tournaments called PVP where players fought to reach various tiers; Adamantium, Vibranium, Diamond, Gold, Silver (descending order).

Most of the players used to first take up several practice sessions of PvP fighting during non-tournament times.
When players needed elite awards, they used to play 24-hour limited missions. It was a major challenge to be completed and the various restrictions imposed on them were the reason. The mission got exchanged after the 24-hour window ends.
Special Operations (Spec Ops)
To obtain a new hero in Marvel Avengers Alliance, a player has to complete 25 tasks in a limited-time challenge called Special Operations. Special weapons and items are awarded to the player after the completion of 5 tasks. Moreover, the battle results in getting unique boss items to make the game more interesting and fascinating. But there is an exception in this point also. It is Spec Ops mission where 5-star mastery is needed to be obtained in all the missions.
