  • As someone who completed Act 6 before the most recent set of changes, 6* R3 champions are not needed. It took me a while to get through Act 6, mostly because I just took my time while I did rank ups to fill out my roster, but when I finally got through it, it was with 1 R3 champion which didn’t make a whole lot of…
  • I haven’t gotten around to trying it yet, but I feel like an awakened Storm relic might go quite well with Bishop too.
  • Same thing just happened to me. Also, nothing shows up afterwards either.
  • While I had no trouble with the Nebula fight, I understand where OP is coming from. There have been a few times now where there have been champs placed in the Cav event quest that go directly against the nodes, preventing players from utilizing the beneficial nodes. It’s not so bad in this situation with Nebula, but I…
  • You’re trying to equate an actual in-match strategy to a method used to manipulate matchmaking, but they are far from being the same thing. Choosing when to use particular defenders is all part of the strategy used when facing off against players at an equal or higher rating than you, and is not sandbagging. Why use your…
  • I’m happy to see some references to Fear Itself, it was one of the first comics I read and enjoy going back to it from time to time. This synergy basically confirms either Absorbing Man, Grey Gargoyle or Sin are coming soon as said above. Since we just got Titania I feel like it’ll probably end up being Absorbing Man. On a…
  • He may not be my first R4 (as that honour went to Ibom) but I do think he’s quite good and he’ll probably end up being my first tech R4 unless I pull someone else before then. Also, just because a champ may not be someone’s first option for R4, doesn’t in any way mean they need a buff.
  • From what I remember, this version of Deadpool comes from a comic run where he no longer had his healing factor for one reason or another. So most likely when he was developed, this was kept in mind, since we already had the Red Deadpool with his healing factor.
  • Personally, I feel one way to help mitigate this problem is to start limiting the rarity of champs able to be used based on progression level. So for Cav and above, they would be limited to 5* champs and higher, just like with story content. As for Uncollected and below, they would potentially be able to use any of their…
  • I think the argument about having the skill to defeat higher tier defenders is valid, but there’s an important counter to this I think is being missed. If a TB or paragon player loads their deck with 1 & 2 star champs in order to face lower tier opponents, how much skill is really involved on their part? While sure, UC and…
  • Only opened 3, from which I pulled Sabretooth & Proxima for the first time and awakened my Elsa. Not bad I suppose, could’ve been worse, although I really would’ve liked to get my hands on Scorpion and Omega
  • I’ve only done a few paths towards act 7 exploration, but overall I’m finding 8.1 a lot easier to explore so far. Also, if time is a factor then I’d probably prioritize 8.1 as it’s only a single chapter.
  • Most likely we won’t get any info until early December. They usually release the info towards the beginning of each month, and this month saw them release their statement on Hulkling and Wiccan. If they keep following that pattern then we should hopefully see an update on Gorr and Valkyrie in a couple weeks, then Galan and…
  • Personally, I’d prefer if the characters weren’t characters that are well known, popular and have been requested for years. My main problem with last year’s vote was that Quicksilver was such a highly requested character, so he was pretty much going to win by default unless people wanted to wait another couple years for…
  • It wasn’t the unstoppable as the hits still would’ve connected and added to the combo meter. I also waited until just after his unstoppable charge was used before using a special. It was like falter or some kind of miss effect without anything like that actually being in play for the fight.
  • I tried using him in another fight and it was fine, so I don’t know if it was just a one time thing or a something very occasional. There weren’t any miss mechanics at play because I was fighting the Gladiator Hulk in the final side quest. And he wasn’t unstoppable either because each time I launched the special 1 the…
  • I feel like one way they could do Mystique would be to incorporate animal shifting since some adaptations, like X-Men Evolution, show her being able to morph into animals as well as humans/humanoids. Perhaps they could incorporate the ability into heavies or specials.
  • This is Howard the Duck all over again. I’d much rather have a champ who can be used to clear certain content on their own than have a champ that I need to make a full team around just to make them usable. I’m not really surprised that the synergy got changed due to Antman’s ability to stack a bunch of debuffs, since it…
  • Not sure if it’s a holiday all across Canada today, but most places in my province have a civic holiday today, so that might have an impact on the update.
  • I feel like regardless of how the buffs are lumped together, the quality of buffs since taking a break after Hawkeye and Joe Fixit has decreased significantly.
  • So many of the champs that got buffed in the first round became really fun and interesting champs to play, even if they weren’t necessarily game breaking. For me, buffs like King Groot, Howard, and Black Panther made these champs much more usable, and I enjoy using them each time I do. It feels like in their efforts to…
  • As important as the history of the game is, old champs shouldn’t be left unbuffed as some sort of way to honour it. The entire point of the buff program when it launched was to make it so overall there would be less bad pulls from crystals. While there will still be bad pulls based on a person’s opinions, eventually the…
  • As much as I like the communication, if recent buffs have been approached the same as they always have been, then why has there been such a decline in quality? I understand keeping champs simple for newer players, but simple doesn’t mean a champ can’t be useful and effective.
  • I think the thing that bothers me the most is that we haven’t gotten a real explanation as to why the majority of recent buffs have made very little changes. The only reason I remember reading had to do at aiming at new players using 2 stars and 3 stars. If the goals of the program have changed, as it seems they have, I…
  • Buffs don’t need to make champs god-tier, their aim should be to make champs more usable and/or enjoyable to play. We have so many champs that are severely outdated with little to no purpose to serve. Buffs should be able to take these and other underperforming champs and give them new purpose, or enhance their existing…
  • What concerns me the most is that at this point we’ve had multiple consecutive months of disappointing buffs that, for the most part, have made little to no significant changes. Personally, I’d like to see this overall decrease in quality addressed by the team, and whether or not their goals for the program have changed…
  • Unfortunately, I highly doubt that Mole Man will be left as he is. This situation very much reminds me of the one from a few years back involving changes made to She Hulk. I can’t remember exactly what was changed, but I believe for quite a while she was able to combo straight into a heavy, or something along those lines.…
  • Once again, this feels like a buff that was aimed at new players. It feels like this is where the intention of the buff program lies now, although it would most definitely be nice to get confirmation or some sort of comment on this from the dev team. And I understand keeping champs simple so less experienced players can…
  • I can understand keeping champs simple in order to make them more appealing to newer players, but simple does not need to mean ineffective. Champs like Angela, Hyperion, Storm and Red Hulk are examples of older, simpler champs who are still quite effective and decent at the very least. A champ doesn’t need to be made…
