    Recently I have not been hitting the events as hard as in the past due to still wanting my wife to talk to me and not leave with the kids. However for a 4* I am going to have to try and optimize my run, as who doesn't want to start a character with 3 to 4 covers.

    Wife? Kids? What are those?

    I seem to remember having some of these but not sure as can't see them on my roster!


    HAHA Daransteele, I found that if you listen hard enough you can heard the voices: "Daddy can we play?" Their not in our heads, their REAL!! icon_e_surprised.gif

    *With your roster scaling I am not surprised. I seriously do not know how you manage with all those duplicates adding 50 to 60 levels in most of the harder battles.

    Damn the simulator, this was meant to be my go easy event. Now I am in second spot after grinding through the cmags essentials. Mjmacka is about 1500 points behind me, love having an alliance mate in the events as it drives you to keep going. The question is, can I walk away .... the perils of the addict. MPQ in the veins. D2KM knows it well.
    Time to sleep on it before the baby wakes up...yeah I know I said sleep, not lay there thinking of the best team with 3Storm to wipe out patch and xforce teams on their essentials. I hate losing those two.... STOP!!! Bed time in Oz.
  • Guys, just checkin-in to tell that I've been having connection issues since late last night - every once in a awhile I get a connection and am able to play a game or two, but soon after I lose the connection.
    Tried everything from connecting through data plan to turing off my modem and router.

    I know it's a D3 serve issue, since many players, including antreas1911, have been having this issues, so I hope they solve this quickly.

    Scoregasms - in case you miss it in chat, I was wondering about your pvp strategy, you always seem to join late & hit 900+... Would you mind sharing your tips? How late do you join? When do you hit the 270 wall? How many shields do you normally need? Etc, etc, etc...

    Trying to find a new (less hp intense) method! You can pm me if you don't want to open your method up to the whole world!

    I've been thinking about how to run PVP without spending 450 + HP and maintaining scores over 900. Here are my thoughts.


    Early slices:
    Cons
    Climbing early guarantees attacks.
    Early slices have a harder time climbing early due to other slices not having time to progress.
    Pros
    Easy for 2*/3* teams to climb to 700ish for rewards.
    People are less likely to be shielded when your slice ends.

    Early starts:
    Cons
    Early fights are difficult because you could be matched against a 270/166 or 166/166 team below 100.
    Climbing early guarantees attacks.
    Average scores are lower so large point targets are more rare.
    Pros
    People are less likely to be shielded when your slice ends.

    Later slices:
    Cons
    Higher attack risk during other end times.
    IMO heavy hitters seem to be in later slices.

    Pros
    Larger rewards.
    Less risk of attack during your end time so unshielding is (statistically) less risky.

    Later start:
    Cons
    More difficult to maintain scores if you start to get attacked.
    Requires a deep roster.
    Requires HP for health packs if you need more than 5.

    Pros
    Larger reward so climbing is easier.
    Lower shield costs.

    The more I think about it the more I like early slices and end times. That being said, I end up spending about 450 HP per run. I have found that to be sustainable with the addition of extra hero slots for newly released covers.

    pvp Fist Bump
    in addition to malorick's superb (as usual) analysis, i wanted to point out that in the Fist Bump PVP, we had 10 members of the alliance hit higher than 900 points... great job everyone, this is the most 900+ scores we have ever seen, keep it up!
  • ojcAustojcAust Age Unconfirmed Posts: 140
    Damn this is a strong group of players. Some teams do well in pve WE ARE GROOT and DMZ mob pve for example, but you do not see their names in the pvp ranks like we appear. You are all amazing. Pats on the back time my team. Beasts each and everyone of you. (and the good type of Beasts not the MPQ type that may need a rework icon_e_biggrin.gif )

    Sorry that I missed to mention that in our analysis and thanks to point it out even if I had mentionned it in our chat. I forgot do include it and it was my intention to mention it since it was a big feat. Also I forgot to mention other stuff. Really sorry for that lack of analysis its really a quick summary I am so busy that I am missing important feat that should have been mentionned.

    We have really a great group that is great in pve and pvp so its really amazing.

    Here some important mention that I forgot in the pvp Fist Bump that explain our success too for our big score as a team.

  • Hey guys!

    I'd like some roster suggetions. Lately I've been putting iso on the buffed characters, since the ones I have fully covered aren't that great (GSBW, MoStorm) or conflict with my main guy (Patch), but sometimes I feel like I'm spreading iso around and not getting optimal results. I've invested in IF and R&G, both characters I think sit well with X-Force, since he's the cornerstone of my roster, I always try to build around him. I'd appreciate a fresh view on my roster and any suggestions about it, so thanks in advance!

    In order not to pollute the topic, PM me if you want to pitch in.
  • I would max hood and use xf + hood as companions to featured character. IF purple is nice but I prefer Cage as he is pretty awesome too. And if you get the covers GT!

    That Simulator event was the most lax event I've been in I think. I maybe did 3 passes for a final grind in the 2nd and 3rd subs, was good to take it somewhat easy. But yes, Xavier is gonna be cray-cray.

    Yes, I am crazy and too addict to MPQ but this is because of Scorgasms that push me to my limits and need to do better and better cannot let the Dauphin of Lock and Load take the place of the King yet. As a commander I have to show by example if I want to avoid mutiny. We have good royal beater with him and Consumedfire that push us to do just better. Also I wanted so bad that yellow 4* Thor (I had none of that color) that I had no choice to keep the rythm with the top3 of my bracket. The 8 hrs is not bad, its the 4 hours that is worst and its for Prof X. No break I need to follow Scoregasms on this.

    "THE GLASS SHATTERS - OJC80 comes out to address his team. He looks tired, worn out....but we know he is fighting in The HUNT. He looks back to the glass and sees so many of the MPQ universe crawling through the broken shards due to Thor Goddess of Thunder."
    - okay enough of the third person

    To everyone you uses TGOT as a stable. I do not know what to say. It seems a Sentry style nerf. I never really had her in my team so cannot comment much more than what I read. Anyone else thinking if a character is to be nerfed that you get one months notice prior to it happening so that we don't spend all the cardpack.png and iso8.png on a character that will be a shadow of themselves. I am annoyed with you all that have been caught out.

    Stay strong, stick the course. We will rise above this and find a new group that will destroy our enemies. But still......

    Okay I have to back to THE Hunt. 500 points seperating top 5 at the end of the first stage.....where did all these grinders come from???

    PS Malorick, Thanks for the two awards. Good to be in the top5 and assisting Mjmacka and great to consistantly hit 800+ in pvp at long last.
  • Guys, here's an interesting read on PvE Scaling and how to tweak it: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=24984
    Some cool ideas tossed around there, what do you guys think?

    I think this is what Scoregasms is currently working towards. But I'll let him jump on and confirm it with us. If so we may all end up with rosters as long as Druss icon_e_smile.gif

    guys

    having connection issues - not been able to complete any battle for about 4hrs

    Totally missed last clear & grind down last sub (that's the 2nd one missed - other 1 my fault -overslept other 1).

    Also missed clear on other sub & start of new sub.

    Gone from easy top 25 (ish) to outside top 50 icon_e_sad.gif

    Think others having same issue - Capceh being 1 of them.
