Hahah nice! My Vinylmation are all set up on one of my bookshelves in my apartment!

 

Currently that desk is in the Student Records Office of DePaul University... with a bunch of old women. They still just think I am a kid either way and my desk definitely just adds to that!

 

I am finishing up my MA in Animation however and will be shipping out to California then within the year and so there is most definitely no denying that other people will have plenty of toys wherever I go there : P

 

What more specifically do you do?

Surf the net and cag most of my day...

 

My primary job is Salesforce Administrator/Developer/Architect but mostly a jack of all trades in my department.  I handle report building, customizing our database, research, troubleshooting and few other items.  In the middle of packing everything up and moving to Boston at the end of the month.   Not bad for a college drop out :-$

Everyone is grinding like crazy... This will be one hell of a last minute push to make it to a Black Panther cover....

I'm not. The 500 ISO between top 10 and 50 is not worth it to me and there is no way I am going to drop below 50 with my current rank so I am just done I think.

 

I have a ton of crap to do tonight before my super long weekend which starts tomorrow afternoon so I havent even really touched it. I may do a last like 20 minute push to get some more tokens but I dont even care there.

 

Plus as an Alliance we are already pretty much locked since people like you are still hustlin' to get a rank ; P

Also not helping with the grinding is everyone is mad crazy going at it, that it pushed up all the levels on opponents.

Im at 76 right now, struggling to get to 75...last hour push & Im out of healthpacks FML.....

Got knocked out of 2nd and no way I can make up 4k in an hour so settling for 4th place.  Used special 50% damage boost to get the 2k ISO bonus and I'm done with this event.

 

That's awesome about the Luigi death stare.  Didn't notice it when playing the demo at Gamestop.

I swear this game trolls me so hard sometimes.

 

I have busted through all the sub events getting 4 tokens each time and really grinding away. Each time the tokens didn't give me squat.

 

Now, since I have pushed so hard before I was sitting comfy at #7 and didn't care if I dropped to top 50 and so I barely played these past sub events. I ended top 50 of each of them to at least get the single token from each however and minimal ISO.

 

AND I GOT PATCH AND PYSLOCKE hahaha.

 

Once I accept that I don't care about those tokens for now and don't even try the game is just like JUST KIDDING HERE ARE SOME COVERS YOU NEED!

 

Man, this game keeps me on my toes : P

 

But yeah Green Patch, Blue Psylocke and all 3 Panthers. That means I got 5 gold pulls essentially in a matter of a minute!

 

I hope you guys had some good luck on your end as well! : )

In the last hour of grindage I watched as everyone else came in and rubber banded like there was no tomorrow.  I dropped from 76 to the 80's.  There was a 3k difference to 75....

At least I was top 5 in my bracket for hard mode in the simulator. Walked away with 3 tokens, then spent 100 HP for the daily deal.  All 2*s and Im back to getting Bullseye covers, purple this time.

In the end, this is how the simulator has made me feel.....

I don't know where I finished exactly, but I managed top 50 so I ended up with 1/1/1 for BP.  Now he's up to 3/3/2, and can be leveled to 77, but I only have enough ISO to get him to 70 for now.  Great showing by the alliance as a whole, although we had a couple under 10k.

Nothing useful from my tokens, so the luck wore off quickly.

 

Still placed high enough for all three BP covers. This event seems to have been generally a positive outcome.

Got my 2 BP covers and the tokens netted me the Thor and Classic Storm.  Ended up playing the lightning round and the current PVP until almost 4 today so dead tired today.

You have 6 days and 10 hours, so it isn't over that fast, but top 200 of 2000 get a red Storm (top 40 also get green) for individual and top 100 alliances get a black cover.

I didn't get offered any low level seed teams when I started the BP tournament. It was all level 85 guys.

Looks like this will be a long climb. Hopefully I can get up to at least 50 and earn a Sentry.

Yeah just started last night, played some this morning. WTF has happened? Has my MMR gone completely fubar? I usually play to get into the top 50, maybe I'll get into the top 10.  I am making no headway today & am already frustrated with the game.

 

I made it to 200 points in the panther tournament & all my 3*s are dead, I have no more healthpacks, & my 2* 85s are worthless as my opponents are all at minimum 120. If I see an 85 its obw :bs:

 

Decided to hop into the Maggia event, only to find the essential nodes need hulk, who's currently dead right now. I can only be butthurt after last night, so this is normal. 

 

On the other side, pushed Psylocke to level 130, got Panther to 120.  One of the few matches I won was a panther OBW Psylocke team.  Usually I dont like OBW & Psylocke together but when Panther & Psy put down all those strike tiles OBW went to town on everyone's ass with espionage.  With cleanup from Psylockes Black attack tiles + the strike tiles, it was a good quick match.

 

Can I go back to playing against the Magneto/Storm teams now? The new combination is OBW/Punisher or is that just the bracket Im in? Also seeing more IM40s, has he been secretly powered up & I dont know about it?

 

Mohawk storm? Least if they were going to do that could I get Bloodstorm?

IM40 is usually in there for his high health when leveled, and throwing out countdowns to mess with OBW's healing.

 

And yes, I'm seeing a lot more Punisher, and a lot more Magneto.

 

Ended up in a Maggia bracket with a couple of grinders. Tried to grind down my nodes and still not top five in either the main bracket or sub bracket. Not first place rewards for me this time. Really could use the top progression reward of a red Hulk, but I know they are just teasing.

I need to tank and I need to tank BAD, if this keeps up Im taking a tournament break until I can get all my 3*s to level 141.

Yeah, I'm feeling kinda burnt after The Simulator. I did one run through of the new Maggia event and was bored. I agree with what you said in chat about the recycling/repetition. This game sorely needs more variety of gameplay.

Well fellas, I will be gone until Sunday night. I wish you all a wonderful weekend and dont mind my piddly score in the event over the weekend... for all intents and purposes I am dead! o.O

 

Though yeah I will have to play crazy catch up to get any cover. I dont think I will make it : /

 

Oh well!

Seriously, Im even looking at the leaderboards, I just broke 1k.  Im ranked 400+, the top guys have 3K.  First how the hell? 2nd you got that much time to waste? Seriously, I have no life & I like the game, but damn even I have limits!

Im honestly starting to think this will be the first event Im actively playing where I wont get a 3* cover.  How many people are in each bracket?  Im surprised we managed to squeeze in a heroic token in the Alliance ranks.  I had to do a last minute push to get an event token. 

 

That on top of being in the 40's on the panther tournament.  Koju, I now envy you for having your GSBW powered up.  I just tried a hulk/BP/OBW team, I was just thinking who has purple & then it hit me.  Mines only in the 70s & not as useful as my C Mags, but I gave her a go.  It was actually a decent rainbow team & I was shocked.

 

GSBW- She shares red & green with Hulk, so it depends who you want to do what with.  I used her red more than hulks just because of not having to worry about how many green tiles are on board & because it causes cascades.  Naturally her purple feeds greens.

Hulk- Green for board clearing and of course his high health & black passive for defense.

Black Panther- Black high damage team attack, when paired with yellows increases for strike tiles, and of course blue for the protect tiles.

 

I know your Panther isnt as powered up, but try that team, it may work for you too.  Although I keep having to swap in OBW for the healing every other round. 

 

As for token pulls, my Event token got me a....Blue Spiderman. Now if I could only get 1 yellow, Id have at least 1 in all the powers.

Nice pull. Both my tokens gave me Moonstone. And if you look at the rewards, top 200 get a Mohawk Storm. I think you'll be okay.

Hmm. I have BP leveled as high as I can get him at the moment (53), but I have enough HP to buy a cover. Don't really have the ISO to level him afterwards. I'll give them a spin and see.

Don't discount GSBW's green, though. At full covers it does team damage as well as targeted board clearing. Costs more AP, but green isn't in short supply on a team with Hulk. My goal for her is 5/3/5, currently 2/4/5.


Picked up another Invisible Woman cover with my Thieves token. I now have five covers. To level her to 71 from 34 would take me 22k ISO. Yeah... no.

Since I dont have her green at 5, I dont have the team damage.  At the level I have her at her green and hulks green do roughly the same damage.  As of right now its just the relative cost that holds me back from using her more.  If I need the board cleared on a more concentrated area Id save up GSBW green and take care of what I need to.  For example a perfect counter attack to Human Torches black power, since he clusters those in the middle of the screen.

 

She would be more effective if her powers werent so expensive.  Right now my GSBW is at 3/3/2 So she's just mid level for me.

 

 

Nice pull. Both my tokens gave me Moonstone. And if you look at the rewards, top 200 get a Mohawk Storm. I think you'll be okay.

Maybe, I havent played todays sub bracket but my overall score is 589 in the event.  I know as rubber banding occurs I'll catch up easier but thats quite a jump.  After the simulator I have lost some of my confidence while playing.
