I literally cannot 'Like' this enough.

for all of them?

the in-game notice I got specifically referenced that Vulture would now give out PeterParker

Any idea why some of the "buy a 5* with cp" options are 250 cp instead of 500? Just a less desirable cover?

Newer vs. Older I think.

And in 'not playing at the top tiers' news: I finally have enough room for all the two star characters (except for the limited Bag Man Spider-man) on my roster without having to sell any of the 3 or 4 stars I've lucked into!

That means you can start the slow cycle of recycling them. That's where the real ISO comes from.

That or a cover for a character you have vs. a cover (or character) you don't?

more details about the new 4* Champion Reward changes:

Vulture (Adrian Toomes) Champion rewards will be updated to include Spider-Man (Peter Parker) covers starting on November 20th.

Medusa (Inhuman Queen) Champion rewards will be updated to include Black Bolt (Inhuman King) covers starting on November 28th.

Gamora (Awesome Mix Volume 2) Champion rewards will be updated to include Thanos (The Mad Titan) covers starting on November 30th.

the rewards will replace the current legendary tokens at levels 280, 300, 320, 340, 350, and 360

Don't think so. The ones I saw were both characters I had.

I'm salty about the champion updates now. My Gamora is already past 280 so I just got screwed out of a 5* Thanos cover.

no it seems like you'll still get it, when the change comes in they'll retroactively award the covers as appropriate.

so in fact you'll have gotten a double reward for that level

Oh, then my salt has changed to sugar. I was just expecting it to not be retroactive since they've done champ reward changes before that weren't. Now I'm happy, extra 5* covers!

I've got to say the interface changes with today's update are very nice, one of the few times I have felt they were a noticeable upgrade. You can now see both sides AP totals at the same time very easily, and it also calls out your gains on each move in a more noticeable way. A nice new touch!

4* Hulk can suck it. What a horrible character.

Who thought that creating a character who moves random tiles every round was a good idea? All it does is remove any semblance of strategy from play.

This is literally the first time in probably 10 months I'm just not going to play the PVP event to get the 10 cp. Two hulks at the same time makes me want to put my fist through the monitor.

I didn't bother with either of the PvE events for new Hulk covers because I think he's just that bad. I'll buy a slot for him if I get a cover drop, but he's currently dead last in my priority list.

How many 4- or 5-matches lost to Allied Hulk swapping them away? I’d love to see those stats.

Speaking of bad characters, 4* Iron Fist whom I was reminded of today thanks to the daily. Sad too 'cause 3* Iron Fist is incredibly good.

Disagree completely. Pair him with Vulture and Nova, watch the magic happen. Blue feeds green feeds black feed blue feeds green. IF is a BEAST when vulture gets rolling. 5/5/3

Edit: the reason I recommend Nova instead of powerman, who is also a good teammate for IF is because nova's red can launch enemies and prevent them from using their powers... pretty much forever if the board shakes out.

Enough that I actually found it quite difficult to get to my 575 10 cp. I wasn't going to do it, but broke down and did it... I have... I want to say 34 4* champions and that pvp was a b* just because of hulk moving crap around on me.

OK, that's a good team. How often do you run them? How often do you pick them over say Gamora/Rocket/Medusa or Medusa/Blade/Carol?

Only if they're powered up.

I run GRM 90% of the time for low level node and npc nodes. For PVP nodes and PVE nodes that make matches I usually run powered up characters since I have so many 4* powered up I can usually assemble a pretty tough team.

That being said, if I do a node with Maggia, especially dons, I swap medusa for my 255 Dr Strange because with the strike tiles he hits for nearly 4500 every time they fire a countdown tile in, which is frequent.

That's what I thought. Only when powered up does not constitute a good character to me. Even Ragnarok is usable when powered up. If 4* Iron Fist were usable in Simulator in any way I'd say he's good, but he isn't so he's not.

after a pleasant win-based PvP season, going back to points is horrible

it's such a tedious chore in comparison.

Agreed. I also can't stand the point grind of PvE anymore, so PvP going back basically means I'm hardly playing at all. I do the DPD and that's it. If an alliance event comes around, I'll do that.

I just sold my 1st max 3*. 105k ISO.

Trying to figure out what to do with champion sandman. 5/5/3 seems interesting as a yellow battery.

Vulture and Iceman are pretty nasty together too.

in what way? I played them together during the Vulture PvP but didn't really notice any synergy

Vulture black to fuel Iceman blue and green I would imagine.

What he said. Once you get vulture rolling you get to use Iceman's AOE and stun pretty much every 2-3 rounds depending on your matches. I tossed in Cloak & Dagger too which ensured I had the black.

Not to mention you can freeze the last enemy with iceman and let C&D heal to full at the end of the fight so you use less kits.
