I’ve added more talent levels to several heroes in my war defense after the war started but their talent level doesn’t move. For instance, before the war started Finley was at 14 emblem ranks and during the war I bumped him up to level 15. He still says 14. It isn’t a hero-specific issue.
I believe that’s intentional to stop people boosting heroes dramatically in order to skew matchmaking.
it will update when you respawn.
Nope, thay changed the ability for you to update your war team once war has started.
I think (perhaps someone can verify) they have the same limitation on tournaments now, also?
I hope this helps
