    Updated Hulk section to state when that the main node rewarding the Hulk cover opens up now that there's no global progress bar.

    Just a thought, would it be possible to add info about "Significant characters" (or something to that effect) to the storyline events? It seems every time they run Unstable ISO they have Captain America as the essential character, and the Hulk event often (always maybe?) has Punisher as an Essential character. Knowing who is likely to be featured could be useful.
    Then again, it could be just as useful to know who you are going up against...

    Hmn, that's an interesting idea. I don't know that there would be much value in tracking essential characters -- I haven't really noticed that much of a pattern in who's boosted per event, though there have been some repeats such as Punisher in Hulk and Cap in ISO-8. The opponents you tend to face in each event might be worth documenting, though... Wouldn't apply to events like the Simulator or the Gauntlet, but it would for the others.

    Feel free to link to the thread I started here. Has clickable links to the threads for the previous runs of PVEs. People that want to see what rewards/buffed characters/read threads on previous versions of the PVE, need only click and read.

    I would like to contribute the info related the unique rewards in event nodes for the below event:

    Deadpool vs MPQ -
    Final node of 1st subevent will give you Hero Point (I forget it will give out HP until the event is over so I don't remember how many HP it give out)
    Final node of 2nd subevent will give you 2500 ISO.

    Enemy of the State -
    Final node of each subevent will give you a Enemy of the State Token. (This I don't remember if there is more than 1 Event Token reward for each sub node. Maybe it can be added to the list after confirmation)

    Simulator-
    Final node in sub event, (on the left side of the circle )the node with pink circle, will give you 1000 ISO when you beat it.

    Thanks for the input, wingx! Sorry it took me so long to get around to actually updating the post with the info.

    I held off on updating the Enemy of the State section until I can confirm that one (or until I have time to go back and read the forum thread on it).

  • Hello,

    I still cannot create new Posts. That' was the reason why I registered in this Forum. Why is this the case?

    I got an email saying that the following link viewtopic.php?f=7&t=26134&p=322924&e=322924 would lead to a post of mine which is not true.

    I also got an email saying I am able to post which is not true.

    I also am not able to answer to this private message within this Forum - Why?
