Also I want the Yellow Hood but really since the change with his move is it really worth it? I think since the patch his ideal build would be 4/5/4 since you rarely use the Yellow and it still ends the turn but with the Black it is easier and more likely to be used?


Hood's yellow is surprisingly good. Yeah, it ends the turn, but you're doing 5k+ damage and clearing tiles you select off the board. Makes for a good finishing move if your other two characters don't have offensive yellows, and works really well against goons. The only thing to note is if you plan your shots to make a match-five, you still end the turn and give the opponent first shot at the critical.

Hood didn't get worse, just different. His weaknesses are still that he's still squishy and covers too many colors.

This! If you know how to use it, its just freaking awesome.  It may end the turn but its an end nuke as well.  I dont think many can last for long if at all after a properly used twin pistols.  I know that usually its a bitch when you play against the computer, but if you use Hood properly he's just as deadly for you.  Plus look at yellow this way: Insane damage, board control (you can place the shot on any tile including enemy countdowns), and cascade potential.  I think thats worth 1 match 3 move dont you?

I am by no means discrediting the power of his Yellow hah I know it is a beast of a move!

 

Hm, I originally was going to say I normally have Yellow accounted for but really the only Yellow moves for my other mainstay characters are Thor's which is a perfect move and then Steve's whose I rarely get off anyway. 

 

I suppose that just adds to the answer and so yes if I can score that Yellow cover I will tack it on my Hood and make him 5/5/3.

 

I just do not look forward to trying to get all the way to that Hood and then Deadpool cover... I wish I had more Deadpool points stored up; I have enough for like one insta kill. I normally run Patch, Blade and Falcon as my go to team when just doing my one mission for the day at the least and I really should replace one of them for Deadpool so that I am building back up his points.

Yes, you do. :)

The best 'collect some Deadpool points, make sure I play once a day' for me is the 'test' node for each season, so that the RNG will eventually give me all four rewards. Failing that, just knock around some level 5 scrubs in the prologue.

So top 10 in each gauntlet is a crock of shit.  They really need to expand this as this test is an absolute fail.  I started a bracket saw top 10 were already done, so I have no incentive.  Finished everything in the first gauntlet ended at 59.  Shouldve just beat the last node with hood and moved on, but no.  I wanted to know if the full points were what the top 10 had, they were. And also to see where I stood once I did everything. They really need to break that shit up like the do the seasons, top 100 and top x, y, z should get something.  Not hey first 10 out of 10k you get somehitng, the rest of you? You get shit! Enjoy!

 

I guess Im upset because my token pulls are in the shit right now. I get so used to getting golds that I shouldnt expect one daily. I mean honestly I got a green squirrel girl and a yellow lazy thor.  Then I always push the others out of my head because I dont need them: Green Hulk, Blue Hood, Purple Falcon.  I couldve used purple on falcon but I already have him at 4/5/4 and would prefer the extra in yellow and drop the purple honestly.

 

However the LThor would happen when he's a progression reward in the season wouldnt it? Finally after a long dry spell of having a 1/2/5 LThor, he's now 3/5/5.  Yeah he just came together like Dr Doom when they released his new power.  Also thanks to the alliance my daredevil is 5/2/5 from 5/0/5, so 1 more blue & he's complete too!  Now I guess next would be to finally complete patch.

Is Mn Mags, ModHawk, and C storm really a super awesome combo?  That always felt like a crutch team to me.  Use MN Mags to build blue for Storm, now make match 5s for Modhawks speedshot.  idk Ive moved into 3* land but people still seem to use it.  I keep selling my Modhawk & MN mags. maybe I need to reinvest in them?

I view it like missing out on a limited time pricing error someone posts on this site and I don't read until a few hours later. I do agree that the bracket size has a bit of a 'why did they bother?' aspect, though.

If you ignore the placement awards, it's pretty much the same as previous Gauntlet runs - 3* rewards for finishing two out of the three. Haven't started yet, but I plan to finish the whole thing for the purple Deadpool.



And yes, Mag/Storm/Hawk is a strong PvE 2* team. Even without being leveled, I've used them to good effect to let my main teams rest. The real issue is that none of them have the health pool to survive many hits, especially if it's 300+ level match damage. But, if you can get the purple train rolling on a board with a decent amount of blue, you can have a lot of fun.

On that note, I did key into a nice combo of MNMags and Mystique. Use purple to make blue, use blue to make purple and black. Either use Hawkeye or a passive strike tile generator and keep converting back and forth, or bring someone with a better black. I ran it with Luke Cage for some Jabbin', it reminded me of the Patchneto days. Black Panther would probably work really well, as would Blade.

Yeah, I can't see them being that great when you're past the two star level.  I think only Mags is boosted for the gauntlet.  I can't imagine they would hold up with so little health.

So I got the green Punisher for the second gauntlet, I don't need yellow Hood, and doubt I'll make it to purple Deadpool.  I think I might not even bother with the third gauntlet.  Of course the Spidey tourney has Sentry rewards, which I also don't need, but I guess I can work on that for now and save up Iso.

 

I have 4 characters maxed at 166 (BP, Steve, Hulk, and Thor), and 6 others I could max if I had Iso (IM, Sentry, Spidey, HT, DD, Storm).  I guess I should probably level X-Force at some point,  he's 3/3/2 and can go to 168.  I usually just boost whoever the featured character is since I focus more on PvE.  I've never really used X-Force, but does that look like the logical person to boost at this point?

I only use them when they're boosted in events as well.  you're exactly right that they don't have much value past the two point game.

 

Could care less about the sentry rewards from spidey. will try and get the green punisher from the gauntlet.

I am blanking on who HT is but I also am trying to rush out of the office so there is that haha.

 

Given those other characters yeah I would just focus on X-Force. My problem is mine can get to 168 as well but even there he is not all that good. I have mine now at 121 so he is at least at an okay level if I get more covers that it wont be super daunting but for now I have already focused on my others. I have a whole slew of powerful characters I can max at 166 that I use all the time and I am going to give them some love. Those being Deadpool, Steve, BP and Hood.

 

Using Doom is really nice now so if I could only get more purple I would start boosting him more.

 

I also scored a Purple Falcon from one of the Gauntlet tokens and oddly enough that was the last cover I needed for him (he was 5/5/2) so while I never use his purple really, having him maxed in terms of powers is nice and once I get all those I named above to 166 I will start pushing him some more just so he at least has a little bit bigger of a health pool.

Human Torch.

The decision really comes down to this: Do you want to compete in PvP, or do you only care about PvE?

If you want to do well in PvP, getting a strong climb team and a strong push team is critical. The best teams right now usually have some variation of X-Force + someone else, either a true healer (Daken), an AP stealer (Hood/Loki), or a powerhouse (Thor/Magneto). Then you want to work on everyone else so you have a good featured character whenever possible. So, putting levels in X-Force is a good investment right now.

Now, if you only want to succeed in PvE, the game right now punishes you for maxing out your levels. The best strategy is to get to a 'useable' level for every single character on your roster - generally 100-115 for 3*s from what I see. In that case, I would avoid leveling X-Force (he's never featured), and focus on getting everyone up to that useable level.

All that being said, my 270 X-Force gets a lot of play in both modes, he's really good.

So, since I already have several characters at 166, I'm already somewhat screwed as far as the enemy scaling?  And if I don't push X-Force past 166 it won't affect that?  Or is it more the total level of everyone?

 

Jealous on the purple Falcon Broly, I've needed one for quite a long time.  I use him all the time at 153, he's my man support character.

I don't know the actual math. I don't think it's a straightforward sum or average, because it doesn't get easier when you have a bunch of low covered 3*s clogging up your roster pages. I suspect it's some kind of Top N characters calculation.

So, while you don't have a cakewalk, I don't think you've done something irreversible.

Note that the devs have said your roster doesn't affect event scaling, only the initial levels you see when starting. Scaling is based on your performance and the community in general - the better you do, the more nodes you clear, the harder the nodes will be. The same thing if everyone else is doing well, also.

I randomly walked into my apartment and was not even thinking of MPQ and was like OH HUMAN TORCH DUH haha I love how your brain is working on things you aren't even aware of : P

 

What I am being reminded of right now with the Gauntlet event however is that having a strong 4* roster would make the event quite a bit easier so while the obvious answer is that he is amazing for PvP, having him here would also be super beneficial. Seeing as all the enemies are around 200+ having your own character at or above that level would help greatly. Like I said though my X-Force is not really up to snuff power wise so I found leveling him was just a fruitless effort until I got him more moves.

 

In regards to having 166 characters and enemy scaling, I never really feel I get crazy hard enemies in any of the events and I have a handful of 166's and then even more 3*s 100+. Not in PvE anyway. After I went crazy hard with that 3* Thor release and then blasted him to 166 as fast as humanly possible without buying ISO I have had just unbearable levels in PvP other than of course the initial seed teams : P

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

 

I was ONE move away on the last Gauntlet node, ONE! And then of course X-Force decided it was time to use his green and end the match right then.

That last node sucks because without Thor or Wolverine I do not have a main green powerhouse. I have hulk but my favorite team for the really hard nodes is either Patch or Thor with Steve and Hood. The matches may drag on but I end them with a win usually.

 

That one with the crazy powered Luke Cage where he makes a 415 defense tile every turn if there isnt one, damn. I was super stoked I beat that entire match with only Hood taking about 1k damage whereas everyone else was fine. I got lucky and was able to get off some Steve Blues early for protection and then even pumped out his Yellow fairly quickly too.

 

I still have ALL the Essential nodes as well as the very final node and then I can get my Deadpool...

Ouch. I think I'm like one behind you. Just got wiped out in the Black Panther/Dino/Loki node - didn't pay attention to how much freakin' damage BP's Rage can do when he's level 350, and I'm out of health packs. Still more than a day left, shouldn't be an issue.

Pulled a Broly on the Spider-Man event, ended up getting first. So now my IW is 5/3/5, and sold off the Sentry covers. Not sure why I did that, but hey. Could use the Mystique covers in the next one, I kinda like her MNMags combo.

I thoroughly enjoy how most of the nodes take away from your main team.  My Strike team: Panther, Psylocke, and Pun usually generate so many strike tiles I blaze through most nodes, especially with magic cascades.  So Low and behold at the crossroads of the first set of essentials I find LThor, Panther, and Psylocke.  2 of my Strike team gone :/  Out of health packs now, thanks to squirrel girl one shotting my punisher, really?!?!? 

 

I will have to say the 2nd goon node on the last gauntlet I did put together a fun team.  Blade, Falcon, and Doc Ock.  I could not believe how great doc ock was against goons.  Every countdown he matched he made an attack tile, Falcons Yellow inspiration would beef up my tiles. Then we have Blades thirst creating strike tiles.  No one used red so had no reason to match em.  On top of that Doc Ocks green finally made some sense.  Whatever redwing couldnt get Doc would stun a goon and shatter a countdown tile.  I think in the real world Id never use that team but the gauntlet always makes you think out of the box. 

 

Just like the CMags, Falcon, Spidey node in the 2nd gauntlet.  I tried my damndest to use Daredevil or Cap Marvel to get rid of all those protect tiles. In the end I used some off the wall team. All I remember is I denied purple using loki and pretty much constantly shook up the board. I only used trickery once for 1 spider sense tile. Loki's green power really shined in that battle as well since the computer loves to match 4. Once again like Doc Ock though, I highly doubt he'd be as useful in a real pvp battle.

Oddly enough, Loki gets a decent amount of PvP play because of how he can stall out the early game for the AI. If you get him to five green, it's crazy how much AP he can steal, so a turn two or three match four by the AI pretty much resets their AP. Trickery and Illusions are now his secondary powers.

I've been toying around with Hulk bombing with Patch, trying to find the best third. I think Loki still gets that spot, but Daredevil and Doom get honorable mentions - trap tiles are really a lousy mechanic, though. Falcon might work, too, but I think he's too slow for this purpose.

I put the beat down on that last X-Force/Thor node with Steve, Hood and Punisher - reminded me that a boosted Frank is still kind of fun despite being left in the dust with newer characters. Being able to pull off 8k damage with 8 AP is pretty nice, as are the boosted strike tiles. Just need to knock out the essentials for that purple Deadpool.

I haven't tried anything truly off the wall, though. Did notice that Squirrel Girl's green is painful at high levels, as is Star-Lord's red.

I just finished the 1st set of essentials. Since Daredevil is essential well that was a given, but I just used the powered up guys all together.  Who knew that Hood, Punisher, and Daredevil would actually make a good team? I know thats not too crazy because they're the featured characters but still. 

 

Are we back to Hulk Bombing from sentry bombing?   I got it to work, but I didnt know we were back doing that.

 

And yes trap tiles are a shitty mechanic, but they can work to your favor. The Dr Doom one is basically rack em up until they fill the board then let loose. Daredevil Ive managed to coax the AI into setting them off.  If you have one in the path of a match 4, you know the computer wont pass it up.  Then boom, instakill! They've improved the use of trap tiles but some, Elektra, still need quite a bit of work.

Hulk bombing works, so it'll stick around. The key is finding a way to sustain it further than a Hulk health pack per match.

The problem with trap tiles is this specific instance is that the Daredevil required nodes keep throwing Daken, Blade or anyone else who just freakin' overwrites them. I don't mind the gambling element of traps, but the red overwrite just makes me remember I don't have this problem with Steve's red.

I agree, though, I like the Doom implementation. It's funny when you do a Doom lightning round and your traps just disappear because of the opponent's Diabolical Plot. Gee, wonder where that trap tile got placed?

Gah.

 

Finally got my Purple Deadpool.

 

That was miserable. Whoever made that last essential node with like 263 4hor, Luke Cage and Loki can burn in hell.

 

I wasted a few hundred HP and ISO buying boosts because I kept failing. I hate that I was forced to use stupid Frank. Ugh. BUT I finally was able to slowly but surely take them down with Steve and Hood. I gave myself +3 Blue/Purple +3 All AP and 100% Bonus Match Damage. The boosted match damage just put me on their damage output level and then the other AP ones were so I could quickly start off with Steve's Blue to get Luke stunned and not able to put up his defense tile and then to be sure I had some strong defense tiles on the board myself early on. All my other attempts I got slaughtered but as usual with the Steve/Hood combo I actually ended with each of the three characters of mine at a healthy level of Hit Points still.

 

But yeah I tried my hardest not to be that crazy person on the train this morning when I got that node done hahaha I did like a fist grab/ shake in air and exclaimed "YES!!!" but that was it haha

 

This Gauntlet was pretty awesome in that it got both my Hood and Deadpool now to their ideal builds for me and then of course the copious amounts of ISO! Granted I spent probably like 400 HP but really still a total net gain.

 

In playing through this event I realized a few things. I never play for extended periods of time really anymore, unless at the very end of a PvE I actually care about. With that then having a strong big roster is nice but having my main characters maxed would be even better since more often than not I just play a few matches using my really strong guys and then am bored and done for that time. Plus on so many occasions now, that Steve/Hood combo has saved my ass and yet I left my Hood at 143 and my Steve at 152. Then there is Deadpool and BP who are also up there but not quite maxed.

 

I know in terms of ISO to actual gain I should focus on X-Force, Doom, Torch, Colossus, Falcon, Daken, Capt Marvel or even Daredevil based on their current power levels but really like I said I just usually end up using my main guys and so for now I will focus on getting them up to 166. Once I do that I will have 8 max level character at 166.

 

I have been noticing more and more that I hate having Hulk on my team. I never use his Green because almost all my teams now pretty much use countdowns, traps or attack/protect/strike tiles. Plus his Red is just garbage. He is literally just a meat shield for me. With that then too when I was gimped in this event not being able to use Thor or Patch, I have no other really good Green users at all. Which made me look back at Torch a bit more too seeing as again his Green may not be ideal but at least it is a decent one to help build out a more rainbow team from time to time.

 

Also, I really am digging Daredevil. With him boosted for me he was at 153 I believe and so it was a good taste of what a maxed Daredevil would be able to do. He is 5/5/3 for me and so while his Red is crazy powerful, I never really used it. His Purple is perfect in situations against a bunch of protect, strike or attack tiles. His Blue is pretty nice too seeing as you stun the enemy and if you can protect that countdown for one turn after they come back then you can insta-stun them again. Not perfect but still decent. As a support character with just Purple and Blue he is pretty decent now and then with his Red as a fallback I can see myself actually caring to level him up in the near future.

 
This is a super long post of me just ranting my thoughts on my current situation in the game. I just kept going and going and now I just realized how long this is o.O    (that's what she said?)

Next PvE event is ISO-8 Brotherhood, with 3* Cyclops as new character reward.

More info here, but essentially red direct damage, yellow based red generation, and conditional boosted black damage.

Also some confirmation about the new Deadpool Daily Quest. A daily non-competitive mode, so that's nice. (Scroll the pictures at the bottom to see more info, like Taco Tokens.)

Oooh! I have been wanting more X-men seeing as they are my favorite of all of Marvel's characters. Bummed he is another Yellow/Red/Black but I figured he would be. Both a Gambit and Nightcrawler 3* would have good color combinations I feel like..

 

I am going to a meeting now but will actually read the article when I get back later!

I haven't played in about 2 or 3 days now. I definitely won't be getting my 4000 points for the 10 Heroic pack. (or any rewards from the gauntlet,)

I'm full on casual now.

I think a daily non-competitive event makes for a good way to play casually. I hope they developed it with that in mind.

Next PvE event is ISO-8 Brotherhood, with 3* Cyclops as new character reward.

More info here, but essentially red direct damage, yellow based red generation, and conditional boosted black damage.

Also some confirmation about the new Deadpool Daily Quest. A daily non-competitive mode, so that's nice. (Scroll the pictures at the bottom to see more info, like Taco Tokens.)

Guessing nothing until next week  for the daily PVES  

 

Anyone want to guess what levels the  rewards will be i say  

 

Top 50 get  Yellow  and  red

 

going to need top 25 to get  black

 

underwater levels,” “R71,” and “three stars” coming over the plane’s intercom; Fury’s starting to get a little worried, and he’s thinking of sending Scott into the Blackbird bathroom as his first official S.H.I.E.L.D. mission to find out what’s going on. Stay tuned to the game in the coming days as the details will emerge about this new treat.

More on Marvel.com: http://marvel.com/ne...s#ixzz3RYlb0EMt

 

Red power is his most basic and beloved, Optic Blasts. Here Scott blows up a random row of tiles in a display of raw power while dealing direct damage to the targeted opponent

w power, we show off his leadership as a Mutant Revolutionary. In a bit of a flip from fellow teacher Storm’s Yellow, instead of providing Team Up AP, the eldest of the Summers children instead takes Team Up tiles on the board and converts them to Red tiles. This will naturally feed into either his own Optic Blasts or some of the other powerful Red based abilities like Wolverine’s Best There Is or Thor (Goddess)’s Smite.

 

Black power, where Scott really takes the gloves—and potentially the visor—off. With a 13 AP charged Full Blast, Scott deals a huge amount of damage to the opponent in one shot. At max level, this is enough to down support characters in a blow. But more than that, if there are enough Red tiles on the board, Mr. Summers really lets loose, pulling off his visor and unleashing his full power. 

 

so  be on the outlook for  Teams of  him maxxed with  4 star maxxed thor to even destory more of a chance to play high  LOL

If it follows previous trends, it will be red for lowest reward/alliance, yellow for middle placement, black for top spot. (Red is the basic attack, yellow is utility, black is the 'best' cover.)

Trend for a 3* release is 1-2 gets a 4* as well, 3-10 gets all three 3* covers, 11-20 gets two, and top 150 gets one. Sometimes the two cover bracket gets extended to top 50.

Its interesting they made him a 3*.  Since they're using the MN Cyclops I figured he'd be a 2* just like MN Mags.  His powers are broken and are highly unstable. (Im actually behind on my comic reading, so I dont know if they're fixed yet)

 

3* shouldve been saved for classic cyke once again like Mags.  I mean storm was left in 1* land, her classic 2* land, and rehash stormhawk was 3*.  Wolverine has how many damn skins, if you include Daken? 

 

I know it wouldnt be as big of a thrill if they released another 2*, since they like to do that after the 3* release: Johnny Torch, Ms Marvel. 

 

Still just curious how they planned all this out, I mean cant really change it now.  Im just used to collecting games were as you get higher in the tiers you get less variety.  Not small amount of 1*s, 2*s, everyone is a 3*, and then a couple 4*s.  I hate to say this but they're gonna have to do a power shift soon.  Adjust some 3*s to 2*s and create a balance where you're not hoping for a cover because the 3* pool is so over saturated.

 

Just did a character count, there are:

7 1* & 4*

14 2*

and now with Cyclops there will be 34 3*s. 

 

There's no reason why Rare cards should be more than common, uncommon AND Legendary cards combined.  I love the marvel aspect and the match 3, but sometimes I really think the programmers are insane or they dont really understand how to change it.
