May Content - The Train Job/Knull's Lair

Side quest is a map with 4 paths and we get entry keys in the mail every week. Each path has a trap node pointing to the Knull boss, and exploration unlocks a quest that is only a Knull boss with all nodes active

Full Details

Negasonic Teenage Warhead/Silver Sable

NTW builds lots of incinerates, and inflicts incinerate vulnerability. She has a mashing function similar to Howard on her special 2. All of her attacks are non-contact + energy, and she can evade counter-attacks (eg. bullseye, kate, elsa). Every effect she has is passive, including the parry stun. She is expected to be a great counter to skill champions, especially bullseye.

Silver Sable rewards intercepts by building up shocks. She can inflict passive tracking and disorients, and has a trap mechanic like Kraven, although she can have multiple traps simultaneously, and instead of rooting, it inflicts energy burst damage. She can convert her shocks into critical passives, and her heavy can't miss. She is anticipated to be a solid questing champ, as she benefits from some ramping.

Deep Dives go live over the weekend

New Ways to Progress

There are going to be alternative means of achieving some progression titles (Conqueror, Uncollected, Cav, Thronebreaker). These are a separate path than the standard story progression, meant as an alternative for people that don't want to play story content. The late game and very early game progressions still require story completion.



NOTE: These requirements exist in parallel to the normal story requirements. Standard story progression will still reward progression titles as it always has
Progression Standard Requirements Alternate Requirements
Challenger 1.1
Contender 2.1
Proven 3.2
Conqueror 4.4 5x 5* r3
Uncollected 5.2 5x 6* r2
Cavalier 6.1 5x 6* r3
Thronebreaker 6.4 + 1x 6* r3 5x 6* r4
Paragon 7.4 + 3x 6* r4
Valiant 8.3 + 2x 7* r3

    so, to be clear, I'm Uncollected, if I can get four more of my 6* champions to r3 along with my 6/r3 Spidey Classic, I become Cavalier?

    as long as you have 5 6 star at rank 3 toal, you will be Cavalier.

    When do the alternate/"new ways to progress" take effect? I didn't hear kabam_mike say it on stream.

    Great question. It will be after the next build of the game is on everyone's device!
    Thanks, but why is everyone’s text white?

    Too bad you didn't re-watch the stream to see what they said about that. Smart move.

    Alternative ways to snag progression titles??!! Now, call me old-fashioned, but I ain't vibing with the idea of buying your way to the top.

    Progression should be earned, not handed out like free tacos on Taco Tuesday! So, let's stick to the tried and true method - Story mode all the way!

    Highest you can go thru this route is to thronebreaker, that’s certainly not the top

    I really wish they'd stop putting important stuff at the end of the victory track. Make it points based instead. As someone newly Valiant, with a still Paragon roster, I'm finding it nearly impossible to finish the VC, and I've spent thousands of Marks trying to get there, but hit a wall in the first level of Vibranium.

    Making it points based would still draw people to the mode (which I assume is the intention), but also allow people to still actually have a chance, if Matchmaking doesn't work in their favor.

    Completely agree. That's the only one that for many people will be rng matchmaking based. You could be unlucky and just never get there

    So I’m trying to work out the Omega days, if I want all milestones taking out everything from milestones, then I still need to cough up around 40k units? Please tell me my math is very off
