    wr at 11 green is not wr. As all of us with maxed Sentries well know.

    Even if green generates ap, it's a 11ap ability that has marginal synergy with the other 2.

    Mine is already 5/5/3 in my mind, best buddies with ldaken and patch.

    Seriously? A turn ending defensive move over something marginally useful and likely to generate AP?

    Sorry, my SG has a final build of 3/5/5 unless something amazing happens with her yellow after it hits 4 or 5.
    For 3 giant protect tiles? Heavens yes. Even if it's linear, which it won't be - you'll probably get +1 tile at 5 or even +2. "Ends the turn" isn't nearly as bad when the effect is huge, as people using Hood have discovered. Notice nobody is complaining about the yellow anymore?

    I can't think of a team where I'd save 11 green ap and still have SG be useful.

    Hood's Yellow and SG's Yellow are totally different beasts. Hood's Yellow is a fantastic finisher, making it safer to let the opponent have the next turn. SG's Yellow is going to at best negate the damage of a weak power. If GSBW has 19 Green, what good are those protect tiles going to do for you?
  • Are people really upset about Squirrel Girl? She is not Batman, but it's still nice to have some comic relief characters. You know, for fun, the thing most of us play the game for.

    I have some general notions on the character though. I don't like her yellow and green. Everybody's favorite mechanics, defense tiles and cd tiles. We just got Cage who places a 280 defense tile for nothing, why would i want to pay 9 AP for that? Also on that note, defense tiles are NOT fun. They might be ok if they half the damage. Say every defense tile prevents 10% of the damage. But what's happening recently is that in an effort to make defense tile abilities playable they instantly reduce the matchdamage to 1. It's not fun to match for 1 every time. Look at colossus if you want to see how defense tiles should be done. And green is obviously a highly contested color, so nobody is ever going to put down some cd tiles.

    The second thing is what's with the art? Something I found in a comment through a google search describes it in a way I never could. "The art is clown shoes." Very true. Why choose this Squirrel Girl?

    For the love of all that is holy, what is THIS? I understand they may be trying to push some agenda and promote a healthy body image for young girls (maybe? just speculating. maybe its just a big inside joke where somebody at marvel dared somebody else and he actually followed through) but she is a complete goof.

    The ingame fullbody picture isn't much better. There is some weird thing going on with her eyes (different shading) and mouth. So yeah I don't like the art style. It feels to me like they purposely tried to make her look ugly with a combination of bad angles and facial expressions. Like in that christmas picture you got caught picking your nose.

    For Christ's sake. I just put this game down and now this. I can't make room for this in my life right now.

    Edit: I logged in, saw the art, left immediately.
  • I don't have to waste my HP or delete a character for a tinykitty joke character that I would never ever use, what's to be upset about?

    and holy tinykitty that is some ugly art.

    Still holding out hope that her green is as powerful as old WR. That effect is extremely powerful.

    Why is Squirrel Girl with 9 Yellow facing off against GSBW w/ 19 Green?

    If her green reaches the point where it is destroying 6 or more basic tiles each turn I will be all over that like squirrels on Dr Doom

    Her green has an effect with the potential to be great. Her tiles destroy 3 tiles at the beginning of each turn during your turn, which you can think of as a 3 tile unstoppable crash at the beginning of every turn for 3 turns. If either the number of tiles or damage scales to a decent amount, this ability could end up being deceptively powerful. *Phantron mode on* Of course, since XF / LadyThor exists, squirrel girl will never be part of any meaningful PvP team because every single character in the game is worthless compared to those two *Phantron mode off*, but I could see her green doing work as a strong green in a PvE team.

    Her build's going to heavily depend on how the abilities scale. But as a typical forum guy who loves to speculate on builds even though no one knows the cover scaling, I'm going with 3/5/5: obligatory 3 yellow because defense sucks. So what if level 5 yellow makes 3 1k defense tiles, I'm a forum guy that doesn't care about how abilities scale with covers, after all!
  • All I can tell you is that if I learned anything in this game it's that abilities with countdowns over 1 are rarely that much use. Her other abilities are priced at a comfortable 3 matches, I see no reason to play around with a 11 ap unstoppable crash/wr hybrid that seems inferior to both in what they do. Now yeah, this is all theorycrafting without having seen the lvl 5 - if it scales crazily, then obviously take that.

    so many great marvel characters. They decide to ignore what the people want and go with this lady rodent. Oh well, squirrel girl icon_invisiblewoman.pngicon_beast.png The next op team...troll. Thanks D3

    I'm pretty sure that

    "Squirrel Girl commands her army of squirrels to swarm her foes, running up their pant legs and getting all up in their business."

    is the precursor to

  • She's trash. Waste of roster space and a kick in the balls to every player begging for good characters.
  • The official text on the game says if an ability does not say 'do not generate AP' then you should assume it generates AP, except when it doesn't apply which happens all the time.

    Depending on whether her ability generates AP for the tiles they destroy and how many CDs you eventually get this could be pretty insane. If it generated AP and created say 5 CDs you might not even care that the CD itself isn't going to do any damage at the end because the 5 AP you get plus the cascade every turn should be more than enough to make up for a lack of damage even if the CD eventually gets destroyed.
  • She's trash. Not even gonna delete a random 1* from my empty 10 slots to recruit her. I'd rather use the loaner in PvP which isn't much worse than her fully covered. Here you can find squirrel girl listed as one of the top 10 worst Marvel characters ever http://imgur.com/gallery/zKImv
  • Next 4* is gonna be Uncle Ben with a dope active Purple. If Spiderman is anywhere on the field at the start of battle he creates a 5 turn countdown that kills him if matched. Watch it happen lol

    Seems like a perfect Daken pairing. 4 green matches gives you 8 strike tiles and then launches 3 countdown tiles that do 4 mini attacks over course of 3 turns. Plus cascades. Then you've got a lot of generated AP you can do whatever you want with.

    EDIT: And this would all increase if either the number of countdown tiles or length of countdown increases with upgrade.

    I am a squirrel, and I hate squirrel girl. All of us do, the entire squirrel community.

    Edit: Why is a girl who commands squirrels wearing fur that resembles said squirrel?

    Marvel certainly is happy to have the character in the game, considering the book has just come out. If you read comic book websites, it's pretty much being wholeheartedly praised.
    For example, http://comicsalliance.com/squirrel-girl-1-review/ or http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page ... ew&id=8148 (those are the top two comics sites I read, but I read others too)

    I read the first issue, and it was alright, but I'm not usually into comedy super-hero books. The art's fine with me. It's cartooning, not super-hero work. Putting Mike Deodato Jr on Squirrel Girl really wouldn't work. The guy writing it, Ryan North, is famous for Adventure Time comics, so you can imagine where his tastes lie. As someone who likes a variety of comics, I think it was well done.

    I think it's a good addition, it's fun instead of badass, and I bet a lot of people who play casually will really like it (meaning, people who would never register for a forum like this)... which is the problem I have with her being star.pngstar.pngstar.png . This is a character that will be more attractive to casual players, and potential new players (like all the people crazy about the new comic), but they won't be able to get her. It would have been better to make her an achievable star.pngstar.png instead.
  • Why D3? You take from my people, with slaughters and tinykitty, and then try to give back with casinos and squirrel girls? Why?

    This is like the Redskins logo...she's WEARING fur! Leave my kind alone!

    That art.
    All of it.
    Totally agree that the comic looks like it's a dare that got out of hand.
    But her head on the in-game art is like something out of a Lovecraftian nightmare. It's so big! And it's all in weird proportions.

    If you are a real person and you have a head like the in-game art then I am so sorry. So, so sorry. May god have mercy on your immortal soul.
