    BTW, isn't Stark Spidey an Avenger. Why was he not a champion in the first week of the event?

    Technically he rejected Tony Stark’s offer, so he’s more of a Pre-Avenger (Going by MCU here)

    This event is extremly difficult for people like us who've been in the game for just a year and don't have such a matured champ roster. Gwenpool goes to movies event was actually way different than this one. The Challenge was just to have a specific champion during that time, not having it maxed out to fight a 45k pi boss. Gwenpool goes to movies was by far the best event of the year and this one is simply a frustrating event. Turns people like us away from the game.

    GP goes to the movies was essentially a free 5*. You can get some nice things without running epic. If this event turns people away from the game they were going to leave anyway.

    This was the situation I was in when Coulson's event came out. I was in no position to do anything more than scratch the surface of that event. It prompted me to increase my efforts to improving my roster. So events like this turn people like you away from the game, but they encourage people like me to put more effort into the game. I'm not saying I'm any more deserving of the game's attention than anyone else, but I do think it is a rational decision to make for developers to target a game at the players less likely to be easily discouraged by challenges above their current ability to accomplish.

    If you are still reading responses to your post, GGTTM was a tie-in to 10 year anniversary of Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    The quests made was relatively easier for that reason.

    Can I clear the current quest? Not yet, but I am looking at my champs and try to bring a better counter.

    You should too.

    On a side note, it looks like this week is pretty easy. All the fights are pretty straightforward, and the boss isn’t too bad. Only hard part is having a decent roster out of a smaller pool, but all the Spider-Verse champions are pretty good
  • Fred_JoeityFred_Joeity Posts: 1,044 ★★★
    Update: Stun Immune Kingpin is a bit trickier than I expected, but it’s still mostly fine once you get used to managing his rage and sp1. Knowing how to evade his sp2 is also pretty useful, as is figuring out the timing to heavy intercept his heavy. Intercepting is also a pretty critical skill.
  • Cranky_TrumpCranky_Trump Posts: 211
    Don't let him get to SP2...Dex his heavies and dodge SP1, rinse and repeat
  • Fred_JoeityFred_Joeity Posts: 1,044 ★★★

    You can actually fully evade his sp2, and I don’t believe he has his sp3, so if you really wanted to, you could push him as far as needed, though the sp2 timing takes a while to get down

    Really? He never used it against me when I pushed him to sp3. Maybe it was a weird bug with me

    At lower difficulties they do not have their L3 unlocked.

    Then on Epic difficulty he might be bugged. I pushed him to full power twice but on activation he went straight to SP2 on both occasions.

    Jep he don’t hav the node with a sp3 active
  • SpiderCoolsSpiderCools Posts: 599 ★★
    Yeah fought him in epic. Thought he had sp3 but only threw his sp2
  • NojokejaymNojokejaym Posts: 2,671 ★★★★
    I think kingpin is messed up forgot to activate sp3

    This week is pretty decent for me for completion, but I can’t get past the sentinel for completion. Any tips? My only usable champs for this event are all mutants

    Same bruv, all mutants, all 2/35 and 4/40s.
    No domino no magik.
    Any tips, anyone?
    Storm and X-23 can do decent damage with shock and cruelty, Magneto help a bit too
    X-23 will become pretty useless gradually as the analysis builds up.
    I'm late but x23 never becomes useless...

    My account started on the 16th of November 2017, so slightly older than a year, and I am raging through it easily. Could have done the same a few months ago considering most of the usable champs have been same rank/level for half a year.

    Look at the rewards: Not meant to be easy. I think you need some UC experience first, topped off with some AQ bossfights.

    Yes, GP was different, but you couldn't earn a 5* AG there. Plus all the T2a shards, T4cc...no, difficulty is fine and players who are good enough can easily tackle this one.

    Sinister and Ultron though...they were a lot tougher without the right counter.

    Can someone tell me how you come up with 2200 intel for epic quest
  • imShakibimShakib Posts: 25
    Guys, just read through a lot of your reply posts over my last post. Thanks a lot to all of you for sharing your views. I appreciate all your comments. I understand what most of ya'll are trying to tell me that it's just a phase and I should see it as motivation to try to stregthen my roster and try to play better. Well, I can complete master alright but I believe being in the game for just a year and the way the game is evolving (Only 5 stars and 6 stars matter, rest are waste) - the side quests should always facillitate relatively new players a faster way to evolve through 5 star shards and all. I understand that all side quests can't be compared to Gwenpool Goes to Movies and I aint doing that either but GGTM is by far the best side event quest in a year I have been with the game and as a relative new player I'd urge Kabam to have such a greatly planned quest to be available at least twice a year. That would actually motivate newer players in repect to current evolution of the game. My simple point is, if 5 star champs will be the main driver through game then Kabam should facillitate getting 5 star heroes way faster otherwise it will get frustrating and will turn away newer players. If the game evolves then rewards and way of getting those should evolve too.
  • I'm still waiting to find out why crossbones isn't included in the mercenary category. It straight up says it in his bio, so why isn't he included? I'm about to have to take my unduped luke cage to r3 and waste my gold to get a 5* awakening gem for a champ i cant upgrade due to lack of gold from upgrading luke cage.

    He's a Merc who works for hydra. So now he is a villain because that's what they decided in this game

    Also he isn't an option because he doesn't have the mercenary tag
