S.H.I.E.L.D. Proving Grounds is an individual combat event between Agents. It is an opportunity to prove your strength as an individual agent.


  • Prove your mettle by battling other agents.
  • Move up the S.H.I.E.L.D. ranks for a special bonus in future events!
  • You can now choose between 3 different SSR reward cards to strive for. Once you've made your choice, you cannot change, do choose carefully.
  • After you get a high enough S.H.I.E.L.D. rank, you'll battle against other agents to determine who can reach the pinnacle. Once Agents reach the 14th S.H.I.E.L.D. rank, they'll be grouped against other similarly ranked Agents in a tournament style bracket system. The Agent who obtains the highest amount of shards in a given time period advances.
  • This time, if your tournament performance isn't up to S.H.I.E.L.D. standards, you can lose your rank.

New Cards Introduced

SSR Reward Options

Title Positions

Your S.H.I.E.L.D. rank will depend on how many yellow ISO-8 shards you get! This time there are 13 ranks.

  • Battle session power packs will be devoured by Galactus after Sep. 9th 01:00 am (ET).
  • You can only get the play bonus daily
  • Got to the My Page screen to get your play bonus.
  • Any unused ISO-8 shards from this event will not carry over to the next Proving Grounds. Please be careful.

Victory Rewards

Defeating another agent in Proving Grounds will give you 1 ISO-8 shard for each 10 attack power you use. Attacking with a deckt that has an attack power cost of 100 will give you 10 shards if you are victorious.

You can get promoted to the next S.H.I.E.L.D. rank by reaching a determined threshold of accumulated ISO-8 shards. The more attack power you use for your attack, the more ISO-8 shards you will get, allowing you to reach your promotion faster.

  • If you win with an attack power cost lower than 10, you will not receive any ISO-8 shards.
  • Your attack power will be rounded when determining how many shards you will receive.

For example, attacking with 15, 16, 17, 18, or 19 attack power you will receive two ISO-8 shards. Attacking with 14, 13, 12, or 11 attack power will only net you one ISO-8 shard.

  • Unused ISO-8 shards will not carry over to the next Proving Grounds, so please be careful.

Unstoppable Bonuses

Win Streak Equals Unstoppable Bonus!

  • You can go on a win streak regardless of what S.H.I.E.L.D. rank you are.
  • You get bonuses at the 5, 10, 15, and 20 win streak mark.
  • After you reach a 20 win streak, you will get 2 [Level Up] ISO-8 every additional 10 wins.
  • Win streaks are reset when you lose a battle or when you retreat from training.
