Hulkbuster beta... and that's it?

DrakeDrake Posts: 85
We got Venom and Carnage. We got Spider-gwen and She Hulk. We got Colossus and Old Man Logan. After an extra long wait in between revamps since the first ones, we get... just the one?

This is the first revamp that they've only done 1 champ. This is very, VERY disappointing, especially considering the length of time in between the Colossus and OML revamps (Aug 2019 release) and when this one will apparently go live (June we were told?) So we should expect to get to see one champ redone every 10 months going forward? You have literally dozens of trash champs that you're dumping into the 6 star crystal and while I understand it's not reasonable to expect all of them to be made awesome, I think a pair of duds every 4 to 6 months isn't unreasonable. I was especially hopeful that we'd be seeing 3 champs in this revamp (the second and third place vote getters of Netflix DD and Iron Man classic) since it took so incredibly long to get news about the beta following the vote. This is exceedingly disappointing. Groot... Iron Fist... Iron Patriot... Iron Man... Superior Iron Man... Joe Fixit... Falcon... Magneto (both)... Diablo... Venompool... Miles Morales... Juggernaut... Unstoppable Colossus... Howard... Doctor Strange... Cyclops (both)... Captain America (classic)... Karnac... Moon Knight... Black Panther...

There are so many champs that just make your heart sink when you get stuck with them. And as the game progresses, more and more will become comparatively bad. Pun2099, and Kingpin, and Green Goblin, and King Groot are getting worse day by day. Please commit to giving us something to look forward to out of the glut of worthless junk we get more frequently than 1 every 10 months.

    What's the point of your reply? I didn't claim we were promised anything different. I didn't claim we were lied to or cheated. Just doing some cheerleading? :p

    For the sake of comparison, we voted for Colossus, and later they chose to do OML also. Either way, my post is advocating for a couple of dud champs redone every 6 months at minimum. Would you like to see that, or not? They don't need you to tell everyone it's ok that they're doing less than they have to. ;)

    It's great to see 2 at a time, but it's more dependent on time. I'd just look on the bright side and expect HB to be pretty good since its just one this time.

    Let's hope. HB deserves better!

    I wish they didn’t update oml. dpxf needs it so much more. I’m glad they aren’t adding anyone else that we don’t want updates for to further delay the process.

    The main factor is manpower.

    In between then and the rework now, what content has been introduced and needed manhours to have them worked on?

    They might have a surprise buff with HB like they did with Gamora. I hope they do.

    These rebalances are labor-intensive. Which is one of the reasons why they've started doing minor tweaks periodically. They take time, energy, and resources which are also needed other places in the game.

    HB's rebalance has been a topic of conversation for several months. Don't think it'll be a surprise.

    You missed what I said. I’m saying when they buff HB they might buff someone else like when they did Gamora. Gamora was not announced and was a pleasant surprise.
    Ah. you're right. I apologize

    As long as I can feel happy taking my HB to R2 I don’t mind, so far I’ve liked all of the reworks.

    Don’t forget AoL, 6.4 must have taken a decent chunk out of their calendar, especially as the Grandmaster is an entirely new champion with his own complex mechanics rather than just repurposing existing models.

    Would have loved to see another champ slipped in though. You never know might announce one out of the blue.

    Magneto. Magneto. Magneto. *Repeat to infinity*

    If there is a surprise, it won’t be Magneto. Most likely would be the same class, as it always has been with these reworks. The champ would be IP or OG IM. It would probably be IP, considering he was on the update vote list a long time ago. I suppose Howard the Duck is also a possibility in that case, but there is an armored man theme here.
