  • It is a pretty clunky setup - knockdown to trigger Unstoppable -> intercept to remove unstoppable -> knockdown to remove protection -> try to get in enough damage before protection comes back -> repeat. This is especially annoying because the enemy AI keeps dashing back while Unstoppable, making you lose time to remove it.…
  • I agree with you as well. If I want to clear a path, I’ll use Galan for the easy fights to end them quickly, but for the more complicated fights my Herc will often have to step in. Galan can do complicated fights sure, but I’ve been surprised at how less efficient he becomes. For example the node on the mojo side quest -…
  • Your post does not provide any argument that Cull is better than Herc. All your post is showing is that you have Cull ranked up but not Herc. You have not explained why.
  • What would be really exciting would be if they added a Lover's Synergy, with some Coming Soon mystery boxes. Daken would be cool especially if they had some type of pheromones abilities.

  • Just realized as another argument for Gladiator, is that hopefully there will be a Mohawk synergy.
  • Doom 2.0 vs Herc 2.0? I'm kinda more keen on another Herc
  • Your predictions seem too reliant on likely to be buffed champions, and don't have enough bad pulls/meh pulls. There's always been at least 1 meme tier champion (currently Groot), as well as a bunch of meh/middle of the road champions that aren't bad enough to warrant a buff over other champions but aren't good enough to…
  • Did the previous candidates also have descriptions of what their Key Abilities would have been, or is this just something they have rolled out for the final two? That would influence me more than voting based on comics / costume.
  • It might be too small of a sample size to show if Sandbagging is working or not for you. As far as I know, Sandbagging doesn't work. Let us say your original roster is B tier. You complain that the original matchups is B tier vs A tier. You then 'sandbag' so that your new roster is C tier. Now you are facing C tier vs B…
  • Looking at it from both sides, the fight time you shave off by using suicide masteries, can often be offset by the time shaved off by your defenders losing health from recoil. I am always happy to face an opponent that has suicide masteries. Since the defender throws at least 2-3 specials each match, that's free damage to…
  • Have this bug too, where I'd only get 1 buff instead of 3 while special intercepting. It did start yesterday randomly. At first I thought Gorr (in Battlegrounds) had something against #God that was causing this, but then I noticed it happening in the Monthly event quest too against other champions. I believe the word…
  • The good: BWCV: the first and last time I took my Galan against BWCV really showcased how awesome she is. She can show up as a last minute defender when all hope seems lost. On offense, turning Defenders' strengths into weaknesses is so great. The Buff Immunity from SP2 and the decent amount of hits in her SP2, made it…
  • Your same argument could be made for any of the champions remaining, especially Bullseye (all he does is aim really well, he'll probably just throw a sai for a critical bleed and call it a day). Your same argument for 'no more champions of a specific franchise' could be made for any of the champions (there is too many…
  • For the life of me, I never understood why Bullseye was so popular. A villain whose only power is marksmanship who only makes sense as a Daredevil antagonist. But, I have been on the wrong side of all these votes over the years - the champion I want never makes it out of the first round, and the champion I care for the…
  • You kind of have a point, in that Paragon level skill w/ Uncollected Roster vs low skill w/ Uncollected Roster would curbstomp, but Low Skill w/ Uncollected Roster v Low Skill w/ Uncollected Roster should theoretically be equivalent to Paragon Skill w/ Paragon Roster v Paragon Skill w/ Paragon Roster. But you are also…
  • The only thing that needs to change about Baron Zemo is his weird AI. It seems like he purposefully prevents Reparry technique by doing MM attacks far more often than other champions. Ebony Maw defender does MM only rarely. But Baron Zemo boss does so many gun only attacks.
  • Makes sense now. Infographics is using color coding and not just rows/columns.
  • How does Herc handle Warlock on the non-Robot objectives? Don't you need an armor break, and CapIW can't be on the team as well right?
  • Yesterday, I seemed to be fairly matched with comparable accounts - 1 or 2 6R4, a few 6R3, and then mixes of everything below that. Then I opened two 6-star crystals - one new, and one dupe. I also used 10 5-star sig stones that were going to expire. Cut to today: Matched up against 5 accounts that had pretty much entirely…
  • For me, matchmaking has generally felt fair (matching with accounts with about the same amount of R3/R4 as me), but it has been harder to progress. And I do agree with the feeling of not wanting to rank up champions, just in case it makes matchmaking worse. In terms of rewards, it does feel unfair that Paragons have to put…
  • One caution would be to make sure that Aegon's persistent charges are working correctly. I haven't seen it being reported with Aegon, and have mainly only seen it in regards to Apoc evade counter not carrying over between fights after the latest update. But I have also noticed the # of persistent charges on Human Torch…
  • I've said it before, but the whole "Relics not allowed" icon plastered over 90% of the game, makes me psychologically think it is not allowed anywhere. Even when it is allowed by the game, I don't think of using it.
  • True. Tech class in general doesn't really have any sig abilities that changes the champion.
  • Your best bet is just to try and find a Spider-Ham somewhere to practice on and play him as if he is stun immune. On my prior Gauntlet runs, he was always annoying because his animations were hard to keep track of. He has a lot of herky jerky movements, between the dash back and dash forward, as well as his random heavies.
  • I have Nimrod at R4 unawakened. I haven't meaningfully felt like I am missing out on things from his awakened ability. Sure ramp up takes 'longer', but I don't feel like it is long at all. Personally for me, I am very hesitant to use awakening gems just for Sig abilities that increase damage. Unblockable specials in…
  • If Kabam decides to not really change the difficulty, then the rewards definitely need to be changed to make it worth the effort. Is there reasoning why both Cavalier and TB difficulty don't have units in them? I know historically Cav didn't have it, which I accepted since it was the top difficulty with different rewards.…
  • The intrinsic value of Abyss Tech crystal remains the same - whether IDoom is present on 1/31 or 2/21, it is still the same pool of Tech champions. The value of Abyss Tech crystal vs the 5 other non-Tech Abyss crystals, also remains the same as each classes pool remains the same regardless of if iDoom is present on 1/31 or…
  • I agree with it essentially just being "Difficulty = 20% health increase." The rewards aren't that enticing, but at the same time, since it is not really difficult it doesn't warrant amazing rewards (like a Gauntlet type quest). EQ for Paragons used to be a decent source of rank up materials for relatively low effort…
  • For Paragons: A lot more work for slightly more T6b/T3a. Putting aside the level of 'difficulty', now more effort has to be put in to getting those R4 materials, when the same player prior to this month could put in less effort to completing the Paragon objective (on TB level content). For TB: May or not be worth it,…
  • For T6b/T3a, haven't they just transferred doing them via Objectives on cavalier difficulty to now having to spend more energy to explore TB+ quest?
