    @Kabam Miike does gamora dupe apply to the changes or does it also apply non dupe?

    Just a heads up, these aren't brand new. We've already implemented them lately. Those "milestones" are earned by Finishing Act 1, Act 2, Act 3, Act 4, and Act 5.2. There's just a visualization now to show your progress as you get closer to the next one.

    As long as Gamoras buff isn't heavily tied to her sig, which it doesn't seem to be, I'll be happy. Her sig will obviously be getting an overhaul as well but it looks like even unduped there's a lot to look forward to. Now maybe my 6* can do more than piss me off 😂

    Any story milestones for completing act 5.4 or will the next one just be from act 6?

    No mention of improving the "connectivity" issues in game that are plaguing us right now?

    @Kabam Miike Will the changes to Spider-Gwen and She-Hulk be identical to those of the Beta?
  • @Kabam Miike
    Credit where credit is due. To repeat what someone said earlier, thanks to the Kabaam team for buffing these champs. This does so much for morale. Really looking forward to seeing my 6* Gamora in action with this new update!

    Accessing defender profile from the AW map is hugely helpful.

    Now I’m just waiting for Emma’s synergy with Cyclops to be fixed.

    Those optimizations are always ongoing, and we've made some improvements, but I don't want to say that the issue will be completely fixed until we have had some time with the new release out in the wild.
    Thanks, @Kabam Miike ... I'm crossing my fingers.

    @Kabam Mike
    Do you guys have any plans on fixing the lag and connection issues? This has gone on long enough. I'm not asking for compensation but for you guys to fix the game.

    Asked and answered.

    We definitely appreciate the efforts of the game team to bring the Legacy champs more up to date with those new champs that are being released. This is a great move and very much appreciated! Thanks to the game team for the time to take these champs up! Gamora is looking good! Thanks team!! Nice work and always appreciate the effort you all put in for this endeavor!!

    So stoked She-Hulk and Spider-Gwen beta changes go live next update.

    Is Proxima Midnight not being able to block unblockable attacks due to Map 7's global counterstrike node being looked into?
  • SMiller80SMiller80 Posts: 230
    Are these Champion buffs the same that were tested? If not, can you explain the differences?
  • Chumley77Chumley77 Posts: 20
    One of the mods said that the ultron drone in variant issue was being resolved in the next update, is this still happening???? It was definitely all ultron drones, not just ambush drones
  • CrkwestCrkwest Posts: 255
    What about a fix for the "new" banner always appearing?
  • JavierSG91JavierSG91 Posts: 5
    Are you fixing the bug that makes it impossible to fight ultron drons in variant mode because the game crashes?

    My question is for your last announcement on the game becoming unavailable on android up to 4.4 ...

    Will at least, this update, be available for those users?
    Unfortunatly, I'm going to be affected by this change. I've been playing this game everyday, for 4 years now and have done everything on the game so far, including LoL and Variant.

    And now suddently, I will be forced to stop playing until I get a new device, which really sucks to be honest ...
    Can't say I wasn't expecting this, but it was sooner that I think it would be ...
  • @Kabam Miike will Spider Gwen still have the slow debuff from her heavy. Didn’t see it in her synopsis. That really gave her some added value and a viable rank up option.

    So if I’m reading this correctly, spidergwen does not get her “slow debuff” like in the beta? :/
  • MastercrisMastercris Posts: 28
    Are the reworks of Spidergwen und She-Hulk identical to the beta or are there any changes?
  • Leiva_darkLeiva_dark Posts: 218
    and the lag ?? :| :|
  • SeatinSeatin Posts: 20
    Quick question: Has anything changed from the She-Hulk & Spider-Gwen Beta or will those versions of the Champions be going live? Cheers
