damn, the final board of the new story mission is a daken/venom/yelena, all at level 230
i may pass

oh man i hate those super overleveled missions. but i guess it gives us a goal for supergrinding

Nhex, Thursday, 5 December 2013 20:39 (five years ago) link

I am generally rocking Daken lvl 50ish + Wolverine Classic lvl 50 + the tournament special character (and if he's not available, lvl 40 jug, or lvl 40 thor).

Wolv + Daken is just sickening, each green matchup boosting dmg + every 6 green doing dmg AND boosting dmg... basically if I can survive the first few rounds (which I usually can if I swap between my "tank" jug/supplied character and the wolfy twins) I'm doing 300, 400 damage per crappy 3-match and tearing through dudes (with the occasional wolv slash red attack thing for insult).

Added bonus: if the twins are taknig damage, stick them in the back, let the supplied char take damage, hit for whatever crap damage + INSANO BONUS DAMAGE, twins heal

Double added bonus: instead of using health packs on daken/wolverine, enter an easy prologue fight, do low damage but let them heal to nearly 100%, tada! faster than waiting for them to heal regularly & more economical than burning health packs (and since you don't have to burn health packs on supplied characters, i can basically fight every 5m with no health packs used as much as my heart desires)

waiting for health packs used to be the biggest drag on my ability to play but now it's making sure my battery isn't going to die 2ce a day

so bad

I've Seen rRootage (Will M.), Thursday, 5 December 2013 20:44 (five years ago) link

^^^ this is a strategy I aspire to but I am really enamored of Widow's ability to steal gems and freeze ppl

SHAUN (DJP), Thursday, 5 December 2013 20:46 (five years ago) link

btw, the publisher forum for the game is a good place to get strategies and is fairly civil

major change to classic storm just took effect today from:
Raging Tempest - Yellow Passive
(PASSIVE) Any time a teammate takes > 20% of their health in direct damage, Storm invokes a wall of elements. It damages the enemy team for 125 and generates 4 Red AP.
(PASSIVE) Storm surrounds her team with a whirling tempest that unleashes fury when provoked. If a team member is damaged for 20% of their max health, it deals (x) damage to all enemies. If every team member is below 50% health, damage increases to (about 6.67x).

this is pretty important in that
1) storm HERSELF being hit triggers tempest which means the only ways to beat her without taking damage is to chip away or stun her
2) no more red ap bonus
3) though it's not clear by the above, it's apparently notably less damage for each tempest hit than it used to be

including Storm herself as a trigger SUX so they better have dropped the damage

SHAUN (DJP), Thursday, 5 December 2013 21:04 (five years ago) link

it's a nerfing intended pretty much to force you to heal more often.

nothing is funnier than watching a modern Storm duel, has this nerfed that?

SHAUN (DJP), Thursday, 5 December 2013 21:11 (five years ago) link

you mean does it loop back and forth with hits? dunno!

the only ways to beat her without taking damage is to chip away or stun her

or kill her with one attack

(my wolverine claws do 1325 now, plus the strike tiles, can get up into the 1500, 1600 range easy)

I've Seen rRootage (Will M.), Thursday, 5 December 2013 21:17 (five years ago) link

definitely feels weaker. i was wondering what happened to that ability. i assume this will cut down on the storm counterattack ping-pong, which usually resulted in insta-kill for one member

Spider-man classic's purple ability was basically changed to a weaker version of Bulleye's, which is nice, because it was useless without the other ability to create Web tiles

Nhex, Thursday, 5 December 2013 21:17 (five years ago) link

lol I said modern when I meant classic, glad you knew what I meant

I ran into that in a PVP battle and got pwned massively but it was so funny I didn't mind that much

(I promptly stopped using classic Storm as an A-lister as a result but it's still good comedy, ping-ponging Tempests until a Storm dies)

SHAUN (DJP), Thursday, 5 December 2013 21:18 (five years ago) link

my juggernaut/iron man 53/thor team does pretty well if i ALWAYS start them with a red/yellow boost in iron man 53 pvp. one red match lets thor do a 950pt hit which kills the weakest support member, i can generally match two or three yellows in the next four rounds to get off a 1500pt hit and then we're down to killing the opponents 53 who really can't put together an offensive without LOTS of time or a bunch of those yellow recharge specials... which is where juggernaut's green screen clearing charge comes in handy. also, with all three packing plenty of hp, i can get away with about six or seven fights without healing and maybe 20 or more before i run out of first aid packs.

btw, if you're not using the boosts in pvp get to it because REAL MARVEL PUZZLE QUEST STARTS HERE

damn, the final board of the new story mission is a daken/venom/yelena, all at level 230

aaaaaand, you either have to have invisible woman or play 2 on 3

hahaha what dicks

SHAUN (DJP), Thursday, 5 December 2013 21:34 (five years ago) link

(sic) "Osborn's lackies are everywhere."

Nhex, Thursday, 5 December 2013 21:35 (five years ago) link

this is so petty but i wish the writing was better in this. all this sounds like bickering high school kids.

well that's like 60% of Marvel interaction IME so

SHAUN (DJP), Thursday, 5 December 2013 21:38 (five years ago) link

yeah but it's more like the bottom 30% of that 60% in here
stark continually bitching about his cars

you're right, it's really, really terrible. those early Prologue missions were especially awful

Nhex, Thursday, 5 December 2013 21:42 (five years ago) link

it's like a 12-year-old's imitation of Bendis banter

Nhex, Thursday, 5 December 2013 21:43 (five years ago) link

lol I just kept imagining RDJ saying the text and lolling

also like how Hawkeye and Iron Man are basically interchangeable attitude-wise

SHAUN (DJP), Thursday, 5 December 2013 21:43 (five years ago) link

spidey is deeply unlikeable. like moreso than hickman avengers even.

it's a little confusing because it feels like they're doing the Doc Ock characterization, which wouldn't have been in place circa Dark Avengers time

SHAUN (DJP), Thursday, 5 December 2013 21:46 (five years ago) link

thank u 4 getting on my level with this immensely dumb conversation, i genuinely needed it

so has anyone completely beaten the original story mode to get all the "chance to win" stuff? i'm down to the final 11 in the dark avengers mission board.

just got taken down by a m.storm / m. black widow combo each with only ~100 hp left and both totally weak. they got my team in a loop with sting / mistress of the elements / lightning strike / hailstorm and repeat that went on for like 30 turns without me getting a hit in.

lollercoaster of rove (s.clover), Thursday, 5 December 2013 22:12 (five years ago) link

xp yeah, i beat it. as implied, the whole thing is just a prologue for these special mission setups like Unstable Iso-8 or The Hunt that we're seeing right now. the Ragnarok mission at the end was a bit of a pain when I did it the first time. overall the rewards aren't so great except for the Hero Points

Nhex, Thursday, 5 December 2013 22:22 (five years ago) link

at least they fixed it so you get those rewards faster, jfc it was bad before that update

it's still bad, but less so

I've Seen rRootage (Will M.), Thursday, 5 December 2013 22:44 (five years ago) link

sorry, let me rephrase: not "beaten" the missions; i mean beaten until they don't give any special reward at all? or is that what you mean?

i HATE HATE HATE when the pvp loops come in... unless of course, i'm the one looping

I'd sat 90% of the time when I'm trying to get those last rewards on a mission I get the stupid 20 crystals. And hurt feelings.

Jeff, Thursday, 5 December 2013 22:58 (five years ago) link

I feel you but click click click who caressssssssss

Euler, Thursday, 5 December 2013 23:08 (five years ago) link

forks: oh no, i've still got a bunch of rewards to get. but i'll probably never bother to finish it - even SHIELD training at least gives you a chance of 70/140 iso; getting 20 iso instead of a reward is a huge slap in the face

Nhex, Friday, 6 December 2013 00:13 (five years ago) link

diggit. i'm trying to beat it all why because ocd click click click

after the 50th time you get a 20 iso reward you'll pack it in! nah, i'll get back to it eventually too.

currently have the #1 spot in my Iron Man 40 tourney - man, it's a lot of work to stay on top. kinda dreading that i'll have to do this for another 24 hours, lol

Nhex, Friday, 6 December 2013 03:44 (five years ago) link

haha just as I'm reading these last comments, I got a reward of 20 crystals

obviously I didn't click click click right, must click click click again

SHAUN (DJP), Friday, 6 December 2013 14:23 (five years ago) link

Bullseye: "This is all a diversion Stark. That's why we're spread out."
Iron Man: "Cool story Bro."

Seriously, can ANYONE else write this please

I admittedly laughed in delight when I read that because I knew how it would be received here

SHAUN (DJP), Friday, 6 December 2013 17:18 (five years ago) link

haha me too!!

Nhex, Friday, 6 December 2013 17:19 (five years ago) link

"Cool your pants Black Widow!"

also lolled at the cool story bro comment

waiting for Juggernaut to talk in lolcat speak after too many headbutts

Euler, Friday, 6 December 2013 20:24 (five years ago) link

all is forgiven

#1 on the iron man tourney when i left the house for dinner with my girl, came home two hours later to discover I placed in the 20-25 range grrrrrrrr

i feel ya bro. you gotta be on that shit like a hawk

Nhex, Saturday, 7 December 2013 04:17 (five years ago) link

most annoying thing was that i was at 1086 when i ran out of health/first aid and figured okay i'll come back later to get that sweet sweet spiderman cover at 1100
picked up the pad an hour later and i was down to 895
so angry much sadness many yells

placed no 1 in my tourney -- tanked in a bunch of lightning rounds as suggested and i had a real nice run of it.

now my bracket is pretty rough for the thor event tho :-(

lollercoaster of rove (s.clover), Saturday, 7 December 2013 05:11 (five years ago) link

all those covers still don't make my grey suit bw any good though!

can't figure out a good strategy for the thor event. all the battles seem to take down my health more than half, so i can't tear through a few teams on a single health pack.

lollercoaster of rove (s.clover), Saturday, 7 December 2013 05:13 (five years ago) link

btw if we are reviving this thread, can I just say Okoye + Sabretooth = lol

brigadier pudding (DJP), Wednesday, 12 June 2019 14:06 (three months ago) link

Also I champed 5* SadCap because that's how the bonus covers fell but I REALLY want to champ Kitty, Hela, and Storm

brigadier pudding (DJP), Wednesday, 12 June 2019 14:07 (three months ago) link

Thanking u for intel DJP.

I’m still working 4* transition but enjoying ye olde Medusa/Carnage/Reed team

Larry Elleison (rogermexico.), Wednesday, 12 June 2019 15:12 (three months ago) link

I'm still playing every day, and I still only have 1 5* with 13 covers. I'm at the point where I sleep through the puzzle gameplay and just experience the gacha game stamping on my face forever.

adam the (abanana), Wednesday, 12 June 2019 17:34 (three months ago) link

I just do 3 nodes of the Deadpool daily each day plus the crash of the Titans

L'assie (Euler), Wednesday, 12 June 2019 17:42 (three months ago) link

I recently champed my Silver Surfer though

L'assie (Euler), Wednesday, 12 June 2019 17:43 (three months ago) link

I always liked Jessica Jones but didn't have her covered enough to make her a factor in any of my compositions. I've started leveling my 5s when they're boosted, so when she came up this past week I leveled her to 390 (3/2/4) and wow am I a believer now; I was tearing through all sorts of teams with her/Okoye/.5 Thor, including so many Gritty teams

I also realized that Gritty/Bishop is susceptible to Okoye/.5 Thor/4* blue stunner (ie, Gamora/Iceman/Peggy); the blue match damage is below the threshold to trigger Bishop and once you get enough AP to stun him, you can cascade Kitty to death and then usually get rid of Bishop shortly thereafter, leaving a lonely exposed Grocket to stomp on while Okoye runs through all of the yellow .5 Thor has banked for her to heal and create TU cascades to make .5 Thor's green and red even worse.

brigadier pudding (DJP), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 17:58 (two months ago) link

yeah one reason I stopped playing was the proliferation of Gritty/Bishop at the 5* level so I'm glad you're finding a way through it without smashing your phone

L'assie (Euler), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 18:02 (two months ago) link

what's gritty

Nhex, Tuesday, 18 June 2019 18:13 (two months ago) link

Gritty = 4* Groot/Rocket + Kitty Pride

Grocket places 7 strikes at the beginning of the match and Kitty instantly starts buffing them to insane degrees every turn until you can get rid of 4 of them or down her

It's super annoying

brigadier pudding (DJP), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 18:20 (two months ago) link

I've been trying to use black suit Spider-man against Gritty, since he nullifies enemy strike tiles, but once there's an attack tile out from Kitty's red I'm fucked.

adam the (abanana), Wednesday, 19 June 2019 00:28 (two months ago) link

I’ve had a good amount of success using Okoye to match away the strikes while .5 Thor passively collects yellow and generates cascades, oftentimes wiping other strikes off the board, then healing Okoye and nuking Kitty with Thor’s green/red. Of course when it doesn’t work, it’s a nightmare.

brigadier pudding (DJP), Wednesday, 19 June 2019 10:48 (two months ago) link

i might've started playing this again if gritty was on the roster

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 19 June 2019 18:12 (two months ago) link

Anyone pull from Latest Legends now that 5* Storm is available? I decided to go for it since I had 350 CP banked and ended up with:

1 yellow Rescue (now 1/2/0)
1 black Hela (now 0/1/3)
2 yellow Storms (now 0/0/3)

This probably means I won't see another 5* until October...

brigadier pudding (DJP), Monday, 24 June 2019 16:32 (two months ago) link

(also I got back 22 CP from the champ levels for the 4*s I drew, which hey)

brigadier pudding (DJP), Monday, 24 June 2019 16:34 (two months ago) link

Nice turnaround today - Pulled a 3* Bulleye, which netted me a 4* Kingpin reward, which then got me a 5* Daredevil reward.

Nhex, Tuesday, 25 June 2019 18:36 (two months ago) link

one month passes...

5* Storm and 5* Iceman are beasts, even underleveled. In particular, required 5* Storm on the Royal Family node made my Thorkoye combo extremely happy.

brigadier pudding (DJP), Friday, 26 July 2019 13:36 (one month ago) link

Oh also my kingdom for Sabertooth covers, he is the anti-Gritty

brigadier pudding (DJP), Friday, 26 July 2019 13:37 (one month ago) link

I haven't drawn one of the new 5* for a long time now, I'm just drawing classics. I played the season sim to 2000 just for laffs the other day, I had to skip a lot of gritty but I got it.

L'assie (Euler), Friday, 26 July 2019 15:45 (one month ago) link

IMO Storm and Iceman are both worth it

This video of Iceman going stun-crazy is hilarious:

3D acceleration is... weird! Amazed it took them this many years to do it though lol

new framerate is... weird

Criss Angel Raw: The Mindfreak Unplugged (bizarro gazzara), Friday, 9 August 2019 20:54 (one month ago) link

lol I had five pulls that I could use in the 5* Prof X store and I walked away with:

1 blue Dr Strange
1 blue Banner
1 blue Prof X

plus 1 purple Medusa and 1 blue (!) Shuri
