Hey, thanks for starting this. Do you have a link for the android deal thread?

 

As far as favorite characters, I use Thor 85 lot. I'm enjoying Classic Storm 81 and recently Magneto Marvel Now 60. I'm trying to get cards for Daken 45 and Hulk 28 and a couple others. What is your main lineup?

Loving Psylocke! She's like wolverine mixed with black widow. During this brotherhood event she's been my go to gal. Naturally classic storm has been right alongside her for this ride.

My level 85 team has been wolverine, Thor, and modern Hawkeye. I think that combo has every color but black & purple which makes them very versatile. Original black widow sometimes replaces Hawkeye but that lack of offensive hurts. Even though I do love her healing & stealing, espionage is a pointless skill when her icons are not on the tiles.

Worst characters have got to be bagman & bullseye. Bullseye is damn annoying with the protect tiles but they're not as useful as dakens strike tiles. Bagman is just a joke hands down. Can be useful to prevent enemy countdown tiles but I'd rather use the colors for offensive skills that actually kills the enemy themself.

I really want to draw a Psylocke. I finished 2 places out of getting her in her event, because I didn't finish the match I was playing in time, which would've given me enough points to place and snag one. Then they pump her up, and let you test drive her in the opening of this event? Talk about whetting an appetite...

I have no idea why I keep getting matched up with 80+ level characters in this Psylocke tournament. My Thor and Storm are only in the mid 60s. I can usually defeat my opponents but it's at such a cost, I keep burning through health packs and can't advance. In past tournaments I could taken 3 or 4 teams without needing to stop to heal.

 

Must have got put in a top bracket or something. Ugh.

 

Also, did everyone else notice the missing dialogue during the Nick Fury rescue mission?

I don't think it was missing. I think they left Wolverine on the screen for an extra frame. His second quote sounds like something that Fury should have said.

Did anyone start a CAG Alliance? I searched but couldn't find one.

Alliances are capped at 5 members anyway so we would need multiple teams. My buddy and I made one named Cerebro if anyone cares to join. I was instantly defeated however when I found another alliance with the name, CereBros.... they clearly win haha

Psylocke is indeed pretty awesome. Her 'bleed' effect is always helpful.

 

I completely agree about Bagman and Bullseye. I have gotten SOOOOO many of them and I refuse to keep them because they are just terrible.

 

I feel like you guys are all a bit higher level than I am seeing as my main is 2 Star Wolverine at like 74 and then Captain America at 50 and then I think 2 Star Widow at 49. I have a bunch of characters in the 30s and 40s though. I refuse to use Storm just out of principle. I absolutely HATE fighting against her and so I do not want her on my team haha. I have gotten enough of both her 1 and 2 star cards to have maxed out multiple of each by now too! : P

God until they nerfed her she was everywhere.  Basically any event youd face a classic storm/wolverine/thor team.  Everyone of them was at level 85 & it was a bitch.  Always had to target storm first or her yellow passive would kill all your guys before you had a shot.

But she is useful, modern storm is a beast on the Desert levels. You can do virtually endless red and green combos, then follow up with black.  Classic storm still rocks it with the blue power, that team damage and stun, cant pass it up! The yellow is an after thought now but its still annoying.

 

Psylocke's bleed effect is my favorite, only 6 black tiles & decent continual damage? I know she's beefed up for the event so It'll hurt when they power her down.  Enjoy her while you can.  Bewilder has some uses but does anyone really check what the enemy has the most of? Usually its black, which thankfully powers up that psi katana.

 

Itrain, you'll get that Psylocke! I got one of hers from a standard token, most from the event ones being in the top 5.  They've been handing them out (to me) more than hulk, grey suit widow, or punisher covers. Just do the events for standard tokens & save up about 5-10, good chance 1 will be a 2-3 star cover if you use them all at once.

 

Oh and yeah that dialog was missing, I guess the code was off, since nicks last bubble was gobbly gook dialog.exe something. Then there was wolverine having nick's bubble as well.  Oh well, Im still #1 in my bracket, but what 4 more days? Hope I can hold on that lead.

How do I shift do a different bracket for tournaments? I keep getting matched up against teams with 80+ level characters, and the best I have is a level 67 Thor and 62 Storm. I can beat them, but it's a Pyrrhic victory forcing me to use all my health packs for the next round.

They need something, like it really doesnt flow well at all.  When/how did I miss Fury being kidnapped? This is getting to be like a bad soap opera just dragging it out. Especially with only one mission yesterday. They FINALLY fixed that last dialog mess up & it still didnt sound right.

Once you start a tournament you're locked in.  I usually wait about 5-10 hours before the end of the tournament before I join.  That usually puts me in a decent bracket.  Although it backfired on me for the psylocke tournament.  I was only trying for a blue classic magneto cover. Got to a decent point & shielded, waited 30 min in & broke my shield to move up.  I dropped to 45, the cut off, & there was less than a minute lieft. No time for me to fight anyone else. Someone pushes me into the top 75 & I ended up with 3 cap covers....Oh I was beyond pissed. Oh well free blue mags coming up in the daily rewards for me in a couple days so Im ok.

 

So dont jump into a tournament the first day.  Wait for maybe a day or so, then get in.  Im gonna try entering a tournament in the middle of it; since major players come in at the beginning and shield, or wait for the end so they can get in weaker brackets.

I never even read the dialogue.

 

My time for any form of gaming is extremely limited this past year and will continue to be for a while and so I just blaze past any dialogue or story in PQ right now and just go to the matches. So... needless to say I don't mind : P

I really hope they dont do like the hulk event and redo the whole thing over. I barely touched it the second time around.

 

I can tell I really am geting tired of the event, after being in the top 5 the past couple days I barely cared yesterday.  I was in the top 10 for one of my brackets & didnt try to move up.  Got a Psylocke red out of it but they're killing me with all the MN Magnetos.

Saved up 12 standard tokens, got 2 2 stars: Bagman and Bullseye.  Im starting to think MPQ is getting upset at me too.

My favorite character to use is the classic black widow. I mostly use her with modern storm and Thor. I don't use many health packs because her blue skill gives so much health. She, coupled with storms green skill, is the only reason I'm able to beat the level 200 enemies when I do. The only problem is keeping storm from getting one hit killed.

Yeah, especially in the side missions. In order to place in the top 10 for those (and earn Assault Team tokens) you really have to play the same missions over and over and over and over. Wait for the points to reset, then over and over and over.

 

Onice I hit 70,000 and get another Punisher cover out of this I might be done.

I just hit 110,000 and got my second punisher reward. Im finding waiting for the points to reset is hurting. When they get back to around 500-600 pts I play them again.  Didnt even make it in the top 10 last night on either mission, since I was trying to wait for the point reset.

 

 

Now Im just waiting for the last day when, even though Ive been #1 for almost a week now, some asshole will come in at the last minute & bump me out of the top 5.  I really hope with the point scaling that doesnt happen. Id really love another x-force cover.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

 

 

 

I had 124870 points overall in the Brotherhood event and for those that dont know 125000 nets you 8k iso and there were just a few minutes left and my heroes were dead so I SPENT BIG KID DOLLARS to get some medkits so I could get the 8k. I beat the mission that would net me just enough but lo and behold the event must have ended just moments before and I didnt get it.... awesome. : /

 

That being said I was like 6 overall and got all the moves for Black Panther, then spent my 200 winnings on the Daily Deal of 2star or Black Panther and lucked out and got another. Have him capped at 30 right now and I kind of hate him hahah His moves are pretty lame in my mind.

 

How did everyone else do?

I was hanging out around the top 25 of my bracket for most of the tournament, which is good for me, as that's what my schedule allows me to play. I should've tried to get higher before this weekend, knowing I'd be busy, because I dropped out of all the Black Panther winnings and collected more Wolverine covers. It's fine... I wanted to make him a 5/5/3 since they pooped on his healing ability, but I like to grab new covers of cool characters when I can. Still can't seem to catch a Psylocke.

 

What are you guys using to actually get some use out of the black tiles? I want to be able to use Scarlett Johansson Original, but at level 22 with 5 covers, she's useless to me. Punisher's abilities suck at low levels, and Hulk is not as much of a compliment to Thor as Astonishing Wolverine. Doom's black power is awesome, but I only have one cover for him, so again, useless.

I was reading the MPQ forums, and his black power (no pun intended) seems jacked at level 5. Does as much damage as IM40's ballistic salvo at less than 2/3 the cost in AP, and giving up 5 AP to the other team doesn't hamper your AP nearly as much. Fully leveled, he's dealing 12k damage total for only 12 AP.

Well I managed to keep my top spot in my bracket. Got Red X-force cover and all of Black Panthers moves.  I shouldve looked at his powers more, boy they really do suck! Strike & protect tiles that really seem to waste AP that could be used for more useful skills.

 

This event was great for ISO, I wont lie.  Because Psylocke was a beast during the event I leveled her up to Level 77.  She's still useful but maybe not as much as she was. 

 

Its cute how hard people are trying in this Black Panther event. Rewards are crap, IM 40 & Modern Hawkeye? Although I will admit I need more blue IM 40 covers, but I dont see myself really trying to get one.  Got up to 300 for the heroic token in the tournament, which gave me a yellow Ares Token, I'll take it!

 

As for black tiles, seems those are always used to make attack tiles. Punisher, Psylocke, Modern Storm & Dr Doom.  Usually I dont bother trying to find someone who has black tile powers, except Psylocke. My punisher's & Dr Dooms level are so low that I dont use them unless I really have to.  Some of the Dark Avengers have black powers, but who really ever uses those?

Got 500 pts last night, made it to #8, was attacked by everyone and their momma & lost 130 points. Now Ranked 80 something.

My Team of Lvl 20 Black Panther & both Level 85 Thor & wolverine cant beat any other Thor,wolverine,BP teams.

We're on the same level except they're using the crappy 1 power lvl 15 BP, how the hell??!?

Oh look now all the people I fight are some variation of Classic Storm, Original Black Widow, Thor, or Wolverine. Throw in some level 100 three stars too....I hate tournaments. :bs:

Yeah, I'm not trying too hard in this tournament. I'm not interested in Iron Man or Hawkeye.  I've tried them both before and their power set seemed pretty weak.

 

I'd really like to power up my Psylocke, Punisher and Magneto more. I also suppose I should be using a Black Widow like every other team I face.

 

I don't see why Wolverine is so popular, my Thor seems to do more damage than him.

I wasnt trying to hard, I just thought it'd be easier since the rewards are very weak this time. Still these folks are out in full force like they're trying to win something awesome.

 

Because Original Widow is so weak I havent really powered her up. Yes espionage can steal a ton but only if its her icon.  I love that the computer can use espionage regardless & always steals my tiles.  Then she freaking heals the team.... I try to avoid teams with her & classic spiderman.

 

As for Wolverine, that red power can cause 2500 damage.  Full power that up & use his green power can make it even more effective.  The healing is also another reason to use him.  I honestly run across many teams that have wolverine and Daken.  I kinda find that team stupid but they seem to like it.

Espionage works in this tournament, because everyone has her paired up with either Thor or Wolverine. A low-leveled BP won't match her black or blue, so Espionage works because she does the most damage on all 3 of its colors. It's not that the computer's forcing it to work for every blue, black, or purple match... it actually is working.

 

The events are a lot more fun for me, too. I can't really get that high of a ranking because I can't play as much as I would like, but the opportunity to actually gain some more iso is a huge draw. I try to make sure I complete each level possible just for the initial iso bonus. I can't stick around to babysit these tournaments, so my current ranking of 10th in my bracket (down from 4th 18 minutes ago) is probably not going to stick.I hate that it's also near impossible to get to the next rung of awards once you're near because you keep getting knocked back a pile of points. Unless you have a crap ton of health packs saved up, then you're fine to make a run for the top.

I may have to try her again then.  I try to pair her up with someone that has blues/purples (Marvel Now Magneto is a good example) but if it didnt have the widow icon on the tile, espionage never worked. 

 

Eh just tried, made a classic storm, OBW, Bp team. Widow icons on black and purple, but blue had storm. I need to figure which spot makes the icons widows. Because if I can gain massive amounts of blue with espionage, I could just unload storms blue power and stun kill the whole team at once.

 

OK I just made a BP, OBW, Thor team. That team does make blue, black, and purple tiles all widow tiles.  Now I see why everyone else has been doing that.
