Marvel Puzzle Quest GWJ Alliance?

I know there was a recent update. Annoying to be forced to where one doesn’t show though.

I'm a long time member of the alliance (maples GWJ). My phone crashed last night, been having battery issues where it will random shutdown when in the 40% range when a power hungry app is used. I went to load MPQ back up and it had a corrupted save header. I tried to restore from Facebook and I was left with a brand new account. I currently have an email into support to see if they can help restore my account. It's over 3 years old, about 70 characters, 2/3 of the 3-stars are champed, 4k gold, 1000 command points, 1million ISO, lots of legendary tokens (saving up for the 4- and 5-star push). I'll let the group know if I get my account back. In the meantime, if it goes a few weeks and you need the spot, feel free to kick me.

A bit bummed about this, but first-world problems, right? :shrug:

UPDATE: took about a week and I didn't have some of the stuff support wanted me to give (screen shots of purchases), but my account got restored!

Great!

I'm pretty close to having 300 tokens in each of the DPD currencies. I have champed all the three-stars but only half a dozen four-stars. My instinct is to only spend DPD tokens until I get the four-star covers and token, then build back up to 300... everything else is just extra ISO at this point, other than the VERY occasional four-star cover you get at certain champ levels on three-star characters.

Does anyone advocate for burning all 300 of the tokens to get those extra champion rewards, or is my instinct mostly right?

I tag the Token, the 4*, and all the HPs as my to-get list. If I'm down to just a 250 HP, I might stop. But I think of it as better to get to 300 again faster than to burn it all on 500 ISO and 2* you can pick up daily anyway.

I usually consider the legendary token, the 2 4* covers, the 1k HP and the 10k and 5k ISO rewards to be the ones I want to get all of. Beyond that, the other HP and the 1500 ISOs are also pretty nice depending on where you are at. And the champion rewards as you get up to the higher levels on the three stars are pretty nice too, so I wouldn't devalue those just because you aren't getting anything "new".

You can now bank spare covers for non-champ characters with some vague mention that they can then be applied to any power... Maybe once you fill the 5 card limit?

Maybe? I have mockingbird with 13 covers and an extra cover in one that has 5 already that I’m trying to get to 270. It doesn’t give me the option to store it.

I know the description said that you could store covers for characters that have less than 13 covers, so that must be what they mean.

I think it’s basically for pre-champion who have hit 5 covers in one color. You can bank up to 5 of the unusable 6th and more covers until championed, at which point the saved covers immediate become champion levels.

I really wish this had been a thing when I got my 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th 4-Star Blade Black power. Still only have 1 Red.

I would have preferred a system for HP or CP to convert cover colors or a 2 for 1 exchange. But at least they’ve finally done something to mitigate bad RNG.

I'll once again whine about having 8 straight Gamora 4* reds past my fifth cover before I could champion her.

Just championed a 2* that had 2 covers saved. On champ, he leveled up and I got the rewards for those first 2 champ levels.

Jessica Jones is game breaking. That is all.

Trap tile every round, > 10k damage for the match +4 strongest AP and she has HP like a tank.

I have her at 2/1/0, I think, (two covers on the trap tile power) and I LOVE it when she comes up as the 5* in PvE. The argument, in PvP, is likely that she's putting down trap tiles that the opponent can clear because they know where they are, but it likely does turn the whole match into a danger-management stress-fest if you're on the receiving end.

Interesting thought - would it be more balanced if, on tripping one trap, all of the traps disappeared with no scaling of damage? (That is, not like Doom setting off his Purple, but just a flat damage no matter how many traps are tripped.)

I'm happy for JJ to stay just the way she is, but I ignore PvP almost completely, so my opinion is pretty biased in that regard.

For years I've not been able to share any drops with Facebook friends, despite backing up saves to FB. I got (and gave) my first shared drop today, so it looks like they've *finally* figured out how to fix that feature for people. I'm a little confused how it populates the friend list, since I'm friends with Nif IRL and on the GWJ MPQ alliance and on FB, but she didn't show as an option to gift to. I have no idea if adding any of y'all as FB friends would allow me to share with you without taking extra steps, but PM me if you want to give it a try!

Wow, this game is 5 years old?

Build-your-own Taskmaster sounds bonkers...

Looking at my Resupply level, I'm just shy of 3 actual years playing, out the five it's been going. That's a chunk of time.

Does anyone know if there are 4 people who just don't play in the Alliance? I can't recall the last time I saw more than 1600 daily ISO.

If you go in game to the alliance details page, you can see when players last played. Looks like we have a couple away for several months. Wonder if there are some active in gwj2 we could invite over

gwj2 only has 2-4 active ppl on most days

Sounds like a perfect opportunity to combine them

I've posted this before, but my partner Beldera has been playing other phone games for a bit. She still has her account, but is happy to be kicked from the "GamersWithJobs" alliance in favor of anyone wishing to join for the dailies.

I'm playing less per day than I used to, but still enjoy doing dailies with my morning coffee.

I removed Beldera so we have one opening. I see a “KidC3” that has been away for for 4 months. I assume they aren’t coming back but figured I’d post here in case before I free up the other slot.

I also play less than I used to, just don’t have the time I used to. After 1700+ days, it’s hard for me to get too excited about the same events.

It would definitely be welcome if they shook up the event formats more, especially the dailies. The only reason I can tolerate those is that it's part of my wake-up routine.

Not sure if anyone is still playing. I just tried joining the GWJ2 alliance.

I’m still playing almost every day in the main alliance.

I'm still playing a few games daily.
