    Love the guardians soundtracks. About half the music at my wedding was prob from those. Didn’t go unnoticed by my groomsmen 😂.

    So are all the Kabam employees in alliances together? If not, do your alliance members know your secret identities

    I have the first GotG soundtrack on vinyl AND tape cassette.

    As for alliances, it's all over the place.

    1) I see that Adora_ and Kabam Miike have the “flag” option, are you on user/non-admin accounts? I thought mods didn’t have the flag option. Not that I would, of course

    2) Adora_, what does that mean? That mods use their own server to play alliance wars or are mixed in with general public.

    I am going to resist the urge to ask if you pilot (kidding, of course!). I assume you did not give money back to your employer by spending money in the game ;)

    1) We're admins, I don't think the flag option works for us even if you see it. Not really sure.

    2) There is no separate server, we have to play the same as anyone else. And like anyone, we can choose to be a free to play player, or spend in the game - but we get zero free stuff in the game. We have a very STRICT rule where no one gets anything for free at all, ever. When people start working here, it sometimes catches them off guard because most companies in the games industry gives discounts or free copies of their game to staff. But with a FTP game like this, it's a bit different. It's really important to us that our staff experience the game the exact same way that our players do. With no discounts, or shortcuts, or anything. So yeah, a bunch of us do give $ back to our employer!

    Also since your answering questions, we haven't seen an update on domino's block break assuming its unintentional will that be in 19.0? That is a very detrimental as you can see in BG's war video and can be very expensive if it happens in war.

    We don't have a fix for that just yet, because we've been having trouble reproducing that particular bug in house. I do watch a lot of Brian Grant's videos, but haven't seen that one. If you could send it our way, I would really appreciate it!

    Do you remember back when Black Widow and Crossbones could block break (patched out the day after I 5/50'd Black Widow)? I wonder if Domino is treating block as a defensive ability and reducing it's ability accuracy just like Black Widow and Crossbones used to do.

    @Kabam Miike , @Ad0ra_ can you give us a small peek on how this actually goes about?

    What I mean is, when a server issue happens, do you guys get a message saying to come back to work ASAP?
    Couldn't you guys handle this remotely, and only the server admin(s) are the ones that should be at the office (assuming it is a hardware issue, and not a software issue where they can also work through remotely)?

    It's usually a text message that I get first, and if I don't answer right away, a phone call. When I get a phone call during off hours I KNOW something is up.

    For tonight though, we were already still here when this first started going down. Technically, we could be engaging with you guys remotely right now, but we were already here. And Miike and I bounce stuff off of each other when we are at our desks.

    What kinds of things bounce off Miike the best?

    Hahaha.

    Awesome. Well, everyone likes perks, but I really respect that ethic.

    Ad0ra and Mike what champions would you like to see added to the game? I’m waiting on Silver Surfer and Apocalypse.

    Hrrrrm. I would love 90's Cartoon Storm. Squirrel Girl would be rad. Jubilee! Shuri from Black Panther. Valkyrie from Thor.


    Please please reach out to the development team and tell them we want, no DEMAND Jubilee
    Hmm starting to see a bias against the men of marvel tsk tsk

    We need more female champions in the game.

    Was anyone else annoyed to find out logan didn't die when William stripped him naked, tied him to a horse and sent them out into the desert during season 1 of westworld? I felt like that ruined a great moment in the origin story of the man in black.

    Great show... And, no, that would not have been good because breaking a man's body is not good enough. You need to destroy mind (i.e.rock bottom, suffering) before destroying the body.

    Hey Miike/Ad0ra
    Since I know you guys both play, and since Kabam staff members can’t qualify for legend titles, can you guys grind for champs? Like, can you get a featured 5*, or is that against company policy? If it isn’t, have you ever done it? What champ did ya do it for?

    Thanks for having these types of conversations with us!

    Edit: Autocorrected Ad0ra to Adorbs. My bad for not catching that at time of post!

    So, Kabam Employees aren't restricted from going for Legends Titles. There are certain ones that we aren't allowed to go for (Act 4, Act 5, Realm of Legends, Labyrinth, or anything that they have any insider knowledge of or were involved with). We do have a few Arena grinders in the Studio, but I have to say that I am not one of them. I have gotten a few of the Basics (Cap WW2, Cable, X-23), but Arena is just not my thing.

    I go for Milestones in the 5-Star Featured Arena, but not much more.

    I'm sorry man :( Or woman. But yeah - we are definitely sorry. This super sucks. No, it uber sucks. It's the damn worst.

    I think he meant the terribly disappointing rewards in it

    We have Uber. There was a huge uproar from Taxi Companies a while back. Some went undercover to bust them. There are laws protecting Uber now.

    Trying to get an answer on this new thing you all are doing with Dr. Strange in new update? Something about one of his buffs being removed and turned into a passive ability? Since I just woke up, and game is still down can a mod elaborate on what this will actually look like in game please?

    Well, from what I gather, the server went down on Google's end. Now that they themselves have access, they likely have to work on it to ensure it's in order before we play.

    Logans mind was definitely destroyed after that. Lol
    I have to rewatch season 2 because it blew my mind to find out that hale has been Dolores for most of the season.
