  * no more rotation of token chars

  * PVE endtimes adjusted

  * PVE subs will always be 24h or 48h

FYI for anyone who hasn't seen it - tomorrow's the start of an Ultron event that actually looks cool:

So time to snap out of the Simulator-induced slumber and work together to earn Scarlet Witch! (and then Hulkbuster in round 2)

The first question is if you want to play DD with Patch.  If so, you need 5 purple, making 5/3/5 and 5/5/3 the main options.

 

I actually started at 5/5/3, shifted to 5/3/5 as an experiment, then came back when I really missed that maxed Billy Club.  Especially after dropping a Berzerker Rage, stunning a non-goon for 2 turns can be priceless.

Personally I like him at 3/5/5 for the occasional Sentry Bomb.  Not as deadly as it was a couple months ago, but still handy to get past a tough PvE node sometimes.

Eventually I'll definitely go 5 purple - either 4/4/5, or 3/5/5 is apparently a nice black battery for XF or BP.

 

 

For now, all I can say is my lev131 5/5/2 Doom is still plenty of fun with Patch.    B^)

Doesn't necessarily need to be maxed, but consider putting some iso into Doom.   With his passive keeping all the purples covered, I really think he's become Patch's best friend (with DD and Loki as alternates).  Nothing beats a string of carefree Berzerker rages followed with a Diabolical Plot.

Yeah, aside from the slim chance of winning some hp in the taco lottery, the DQ clearly doesn't solve the problem of roster spots rising to ridiculous prices as people collect the biweekly character releases.

For the veteran who needs 1350hp to add a slot, a tiny chance at an occasionall 250/1000 doesn't mean much.

The obvious solution is to cap the roster slot price, but every single Q&A has failed to acknowledge that as a possibility.

tl;dr:  To their knowledge, all game issues are solved by DP DQ.

Anyone seen tigger?  According to the daily bonus, he hasn't been around in two days.  Also, do we have someone for our 20th spot?


Not sure on Tigger, but Edd just came back to fill the spot.

Personally, I think Spidey has a great set of abilities for Survival nodes.   Defense tiles, periodic healing, and the occasional stun is just what the doctor ordered, especially paired with Hulk & Steve.

maybe its the harder PVE this time that i turning me off or  how much you have to play to keep up in your teams.  thinking of dropping out of the team im in now  top 20 PVE and top 250 PVP is sort of hard to keep up


I'd agree that this event seems to be scaled to be more difficult than the other recent events.

On the whole, it seems like the game is really stressing you out and it's probably worth going a little more casual for a while. If you do the daily quests, you'll get a 3* a day and anything else will be gravy.
