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 (six 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)

I've Seen rRootage (Will M.), Thursday, 5 December 2013 20:42 (six years ago) link

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 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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

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

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

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 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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 (six years ago) link

I feel you but click click click who caressssssssss

Euler, Thursday, 5 December 2013 23:08 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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

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 (six 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 (six 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 (six years ago) link

Stun her. G4mora and 4Iceman are the best options but anyone who can stun and/or go invisible is good against her. (Vulture is also an option since he can remove countdowns with his blue.)

Larry Elleison (rogermexico.), Friday, 24 January 2020 00:18 (four weeks ago) link

with all these Okoye offers lately I just champed her! after however many years, yay.

12 champed 5* now, guess I'll collect shards for Cable now who is at 5-4-3. maybe I should just for Kitty Pride but she's kinda boring to play since you need to run her with 4rocket to make her great and I don't like always being so locked down.

juntos pedemos (Euler), Monday, 27 January 2020 18:01 (three weeks ago) link

Run her with OML instead; in PvE, you get two shields that limit initial damage, then firing her red puts two strikes on the board that enables her buff mechanic and makes you virtually untouchable while dropping massive hits within 2-3 turns, plus any power that damages you throws 3 attacks on the board that accelerates the carnage. An undercovered but color-complete Beta Ray Bill makes the whole thing ludicrously funny because he drops a countdown that adds even more protects off his blue that keeps the buff train going AND every time you match a protect, you get blue and green to refire the protect countdown and to trigger his 3-hit nuke, now bolstered by all of OML's free red strikes.

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Monday, 27 January 2020 18:09 (three weeks ago) link

(obv "her" = "Kitty")

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Monday, 27 January 2020 18:09 (three weeks ago) link

good idea! I have OML champed. by contrast I need 4 covers for Kitty Pride (though I have two saved covers, she's at 3-7-1 really, ugh). Beta Ray Bill seems fun, I have him at 0-4-1 with some hope of champing him before he leaves LL since that'll be some months still.

juntos pedemos (Euler), Monday, 27 January 2020 18:13 (three weeks ago) link

Yeah, I was looking through my roster looking for anyone else to pair her with other than R&G; my Hela and Cable are undercovered but I have OML champed and he can tank on black and has a passive true heal and I went "HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM"

If I get tired of BRB, I may switch to Nico or Cloak & Dagger as alternate 4*s that can help accelerate the whole process

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Monday, 27 January 2020 18:20 (three weeks ago) link

I've also been super, super into 5* Gambit/5* Storm/who cares

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Monday, 27 January 2020 18:21 (three weeks ago) link

I sold my 5* Gambit at the nerf and only have a few covers now. 5*Storm I have at 3-5-2 so I might get her champed eventually.

juntos pedemos (Euler), Monday, 27 January 2020 18:35 (three weeks ago) link

I refused to sell him because he was one of the only 5* champs I had at the time and I didn't believe he would remain worthless; eventually someone would come along that could help make him relevant again. Storm is great because she passively puts out enough charged tiles for Gambit's red to hit at max value at the same time his passive gives you enough red to fire it; a single red match accelerates it and also fills up enough of Storm's black for her to fire her nuke at will; rinse/repeat

At this point, I just use Gambit's purple to wipe specials off the board; damage from the countdowns actually firing is a bonus

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Monday, 27 January 2020 18:40 (three weeks ago) link

I need to stop hoarding CP, don't I? I'm never gonna bite on those 500CP offers...
Kind of in bewilderment that you guys have ever champed a 5*

Nhex, Tuesday, 28 January 2020 00:02 (three weeks ago) link

Just got my first 5* with five covers (OML yellow, so niiice). Day 1098, so hopefully I'll get a second yellow by day 2000.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Tuesday, 28 January 2020 00:57 (three weeks ago) link

A lot of people claim that hoarding helps you champ the latest 5* and there is truth to that theory but if you just play for consistent progression, you can steadily grow your roster and more avenues for CP and legendary tokens open up for you. I think I have only ever hoarded a max of 300 CP (maybe 500?) and I’ve never spent it on a Heroes for Hire deal or a specific cover.

Speaking of which, I champed 5* Captain Marvel today because I got a cover from the special Okoye store and I thought why not?

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Tuesday, 28 January 2020 02:23 (three weeks ago) link

The iso-8 multiplier bonus they gave us over the holidays got me back into the game, though once it was over I stopped completing the Deadpool dailies once more. PvP still hopeless but I'm fine with grinding it out in SP as I always have, until I inevitably get bored again.

Nhex, Tuesday, 28 January 2020 03:02 (three weeks ago) link

I took a couple months off but then got back into it again.

I can't hoard cp or LL tokens, I'm playing for instant gratification. Delayed gratification is for real life, not video games.

Champed 5*s rule, the game gets so much faster...which makes you think, if you're just trying to get your play over with, why are you playing? But I suppress that thought.

juntos pedemos (Euler), Tuesday, 28 January 2020 08:10 (three weeks ago) link

I don’t view it as playing to get play over with; I think of it as trying to set up a jackpot on a virtual slot machine.

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Tuesday, 28 January 2020 13:05 (three weeks ago) link

yeah that's...healthier.

really I just like match-three-ing, even if four completes per node of PVE is too much
