And now I might actually do that.  B^)

The ISO struggle is real.

 

I have Daredevil at 151 and then Colossus, Daken and Luke Cage all at 140. Those are the only ones I feel like I can even consider championing for the time being but really at this point with 15 championed 3*s I think I would be better suited to focusing my ISO on the 4*s that I have a solid amount of covers for. All the rest of my 3*s are between 130 - 120 and really with heavy hitters like Jean, Cyclops, Hulkbuster and even the Thing now all at near max covers I would much rather start beefing them.

That being said I FINALLY got my final 3* cover needed to max out every single one. I now officially have every possible 3* fully covered!! Not that it really does all that much now but still, an accomplishment nonetheless haha. Those last few took FOREVER to freaking get.

Speaking of PvP, I joined with 23 minutes left in the She-Hulk one where apparently the scene was pretty much dead. Was able to snag 1st with like 350 points ; P Glad I forgot it ended it last night haha since it worked out well for me. Haven't been able to snag a first so easily by joining that way in a long while.

 

Now I am overly tempted however with three Colossus covers to get him Championed from his current level 140! Sorry Hulkbuster, looks like someone else will be getting your ISO for the time being! haha

Hmmmm based on my timing of playing the game this past year or so I feel like those changes would be a welcome addition to me!

man been awhile since check this  for a second i thought you meant this was the new thing coming in april..  i really hated it since my levels started at  150  and if i understand it right  they would of been 210  by the grind started 

 

 

 

How do people play vemon bomb..  8 8 and grind   or    GRIND  till no health packs...  many will say  8 8  grind but then if  you  hit a major  Bad boards your going to eat those  10 health  packs up in  1 or 2 clears   meaning someone who did   grinding  til out of packs will have more clears then you

Pretty much the same way you play any other PvE. If you want a top spot, you need to play at the 8 hour marks until you are 2-3 hours out from the end of the sub, then grind them down from lowest points to highest. How much grind time you need depends on how well you are doing with the nodes and your roster usage.

 

Can you still place well enough to get at least one cover of the new Punisher with a different strategy? Yes. But you will not get top ten in a release event.

 

If you are chewing up health packs with your primary teams, you need to start looking at secondary and tertiary teams that you don't normally use. Old strategies still work even if you have moved past them - for example, I rarely Hulkbomb (Patch/Hulk/Loki) these days, but it still works.

 

It's also a good time to see if there are new uses for old characters boosted this week. I brought 3* Thor along with Red Hulk to see if I could reliably feed green with yellow. Wasn't great, but it puts another meat shield on the table to replace a downed character if I don't want to use a health pack on someone else.

I have been searching online for an answer, but haven't come up with anything so I thought I might try here:

When I get cascading combos, the damage diminishes after the first round or two of cascades. Is there a formula for this?

This came up recently on the forum.  No one had a definitive answer, but the consensus seemed to be 20-25% reduction.

Two other points to note:

 

If you are making a move that would cause two matches to occur, the piece you move is considered the first match, and the piece that you are swapping with is considered a second match (and subject to the reduction).

 

Strike tiles are not affected by the reduction. If you manage to somehow get ten matches in a cascade that doesn't clear the strike tile, the strike tile will add the same amount to the first match as it does to the tenth.

Thanks for the response.

Do we have a more casual team?
 

I joined the first team I saw and even though I ended up 24th in my last event, my team still finished super low. I don't know if I have the time or dedication to join teams going for the top slots, but it'd be nice to get a little more reward for my work.

We have a VERY casual team haha Koju, DS and I used to run the super competitive one but I burnt out on the game after playing WAY too much. I now have the reigns on our casual team, CAGvengers. We have daily players and get alright rewards but really nothing spectacular. If you want let me know and I can make room though like I said I cannot guarantee the rewards you will get with us will be that much better but at least you will be part of a group you know! : D

FYI, I added a couple things to the wiki at the start of this thread - some links and a list of the CAG alliances I'm aware of. It's a wiki, so anyone with knowledge & spare time can feel free to add info & redecorate.

It should be possible one way or another through support.

I've been hitting all the pve rewards lately, so I'd be interested in a top-50 pve group (as my current group seems to miss the top-100 nowadays).  If you can save a spot for the user dpoch, I could switch over a little later today; just let me know a spot's been reserved so I don't quit my current alliance prematurely.  Thanks.

Never expected to see 1million ISO in my lifetime.   How will everybody spend the windfall?

I spent a chunk of it on championing some three stars and Punisher Max. Still sitting on just under half a million.

 

The problem I have is a pending 6th yellow cover on 5* Iron Man and being two more away from being maxed. I'm hoping somehow the deities of randomness will smile upon me within the next two weeks, and need to be able to finance the leveling when it happens.

 

If that falls through, I am considering leveling Devil Dinosaur for the anniversary in October. Might still do it anyway, but not highest priority. (Anyone else thinking of the same, don't use the purple button, train each level individually to save ISO. This only applies to Dino.)

I am an idiot.

 

I got super excited with all the credits. I maxed and Championed The Thing because he has been sitting at max covers for a long while now. I also finally leveled and championed 2* Thor since it is basically him and OBW that carry me through the DPD 2* nodes. And then I just randomly decided to max out Loki. And then I was like.. I want some Prof X covers, I will max and Champ Magneto too! And then I had like 4 covers for GSBW but decided against it and that I would max and Champion IM40 later. Well, AFTER I sold my stupid GSBW covers I get another and see this event where she is a Req Toon.... so I maxed and Champed her even though I have probably had like 10+ covers I have sold of hers lately.

 

Now this is where the crappy part comes in. I am sitting on an extra cover for IM40 but to level and Champ him will cost me about 100k. I only have 98k which wouldn't be a big deal BUT this current Civil War event means I will be maxing out my 4* Cyclops and ending with an extra cover... I need 188k to level and champion him. Bah.

 

I am too weak to save but I wish I had because now I could easily handle all of this! Wish I didn't max out Magneto and Loki... and Thing hahah ugh whateverrrr

Yeah, you'd think a million ISO would last a while, but I used up half of it in a few minutes.

 

I took my 12-cover XDP to his max, then raised basically all my 4*s to 190 or wherever they could go.  Now I'm sitting on the remaining 500k until there's a good 4* to champ.

During one of the Hulk fights I was left with just an invisible Prof X at the middle of the second to last wave. I also had a few attack/protect tiles from Jean still in play. They all quickly were destroyed and I was left with my invisibility tile and a protect tile on the very bottom left corner. I ended up beating that wave and the last one all while protecting those two tiles. In the process then I had a monster protect tile by the end and thought it was pretty intense.

What is the highest you guys have gotten a protect/strike/attack tile?
