Your WORST MPQ moment of the day (REALITY thread)



  • shardwickshardwick Posts: 1,542 Chairperson of the Boards
    At least you young whippersnappers have saved covers now!  Back in my day, if we got a 4-star cover we couldn't use, we had to get rid of it for 1000 ISO.  Now get off my lawn!'s the "Class of 201X" events that are getting me nostalgic.  :smiley:
    This young whippersnapper has a thread somewhere on the forum asking whether I should bother trying to make room for a Carnage cover or just take the ISO.  (Narrator: he took the ISO)

    This young whippersnapper is still bitter about losing nine Nick Fury Demolition covers.  He could be at LVL 309 right now, ready to give me another LT with his next cover!

    As for today's "worst" moment, using my newly champed Kitty with OML and Grocket, Galactus resolved a countdown tile in my third clear in Round 8.  He didn't gain any AP from it, mind you, as he was killed the next turn from consistently boosted strikes.  But one of his countdowns actually resolved.  Does anyone have a better idea for a team?   :s
    I'm using Gritty and Juggs. Outside of one fluke loss I've slaughtered him every time in round 8.

    I'm surprised Galactus didn't just step on  Chavez the amount of times she kept running into his ankle babbling on about America. I almost forgave him the admittedly rare Cosmic eye beam treatment, it must have been very annoying.

    I've earned two Fan Fovourites tokens so far.  The first was Kingpin and the second was Talos ;_;

    DDQ's Big Enchilada. I take in Panthos and there's a Match 5 front & center. I take it, KO the first mob, Professor X jumps in but the message that pops up says Jean Grey has arrived. Huh? Oh. Of course Jean Grey is next on deck when there's a tasty match 5 laid up for my taking.

    Then my team is stunned and Professor X has his move but he doesn't use the critical gem because it's not there.

    It's not there???

    It's not there because after Jean jumped in and stunned my team, she then died to the cascade that resulted from my critical match.

    The third in my team was Thor because I was just using the Big Enchilada to turn him into half-Thor and figured I could use Thanos' Court Death to expedite the process. (Panther was just fodder.) So I quit the match and with Thor not quite half-Thor restarted it.

    What's that word/phrase about biased observation? When you only take note of the result you want to see?

    Because once again there was a match 5 waiting for me.

    Even knowing Jean Grey was up next, I just couldn't help myself. But after making the match 5, things did not resolve the way the previous match had. Jean jumped in but instead of interrupting the cascade to stun my team, this time Thanos's Court Death resolved first killing Jean & the two mooks.

    So in the first match the AI Jean's passive fired first, but in the second match my Thanos's passive fired first.

    Passives are so inconsistent.

    0 for 40 in LL for 5* covers. A feeder  (even one I don't need) would lift my spirit right about now.

    I grinded out 75 wins in Taskmaster pvp for another shot at getting Kitty in the Fan Favorites store. Got Talos instead.  :|

    Ugh. No way to polish that turd. I’d be pretty miffed about that as well.

    Waiting to read details on new PVE event; but the ingame preview pops up and I check out the write-up, see the boost lists and the first disappointment hits:  none of those reqd work well at all, but then I scroll down the rewards and I see a tinykitty tinykitty piece of tinykitty YELLOW cover for Torch!!!!! 

    Bad enough that he is reqd for shield training since there haven’t been enough chances to earn him through events. And he was new status until the anniversary started so couldn’t even BH but ANOTHER yellow cover???

     I could deal with Tasky red and tasky red and tasky red and tasky red and tasky red but this is just grinding the boot at our necks. How can we have a fighting chance at combatting dilution if they create artificial scarcity?

    Realizing that as patheticly nonexistent communication was with the former mouthpiece at the helm it has somehow gotten worse.

    1st one : i was 2 points short to reach Dino's pvp top10 (SCL9). That was already bad but the worst is i missed a non-red cover for Taskmaster. And as yesterday the 40x pack i bought from the Anniversary vault gaves me my 12th cover, i should have him champed instead being a 5/3/4 with 3 dupes. grrrr
    At least i'm still able to get the blue cover from the 19 items left in this vault and a chance of another 40x pack in a reseted one (i got 5800 hp right now)

    2nd one : yesterday i picked as usual the last slice for the pvp, Lost in time this week end. That mean for me end of sub at 7:59 am and the new sub starts at 8am. today i realised that sunday i will be on the road at this time and i could have avoided all trouble by picking an evening  slice :(
    I hope i will be able to get all the progression rewards because placement is dead so is 3 covers for the new character

    Bonus one (a little bad moment) : i play as much LR as possible and I win a good amount of heroics. 2 LR from the end this week and still no 4* nor BH 3* :(

    Finished my final clear of the final node of DP v MPQ about 5 seconds too late. It would have been the difference between top 10 and top 5. Not that it would have got my torch shield training ready or anything. Also, because I hadn’t previewed the lightning round, when I entered it there were no seeds. What a rubbish few minutes that was.

    In a very competitive bracket, I was beaten in the final sub by 1 point by another player.  I had gone into the sub with a 1-point lead on him, so we ended up 5th and 6th overall, with the same score. And he had scored that final point before I did...
    Oh cruel mistress fate :)

    Finished DP vs. MPQ with about 30 seconds to spare in 10th place. I thought, "I should tap something to get an extra point or two." However, I had no nodes worth any points that I could reliably complete in such a short amount of time.

    I went ahead and started the new event and eventually saw the rewards screen come up: T20 in SCL9. No green cover, which would have allowed me to champ Torch. After my clears, I checked to see my final placement: 11th place... by one point. 😐😑🙄😞😡

    I just opened 24 elites and every one was a 2*. Not so much of a "worst moment" as a what is going on with that? Never seen a run like that on Elites before. I assume it is just RNG and they haven't run out of "budget" for 3*....

    Earned the new human torch Jim Hammond character, opened the cover, paid the 100 hero coins. go to the node specific to him and the game tells me I need that character. like customer services would have this fixed for me before the tourn is over and I loose my shot at the top 100 and the new spiderman 2099 cover ? Great job guys !
    We love you 3000 !

    I just realized that for the first time in any anniversary so far no anniversary tokens gave me Devil Dinosaur covers.  Sure I got Dino champ levels from other sources, including the costume offer, but it’s both annoying and improbable that ~40 tokens (I only did the daily deal plus whatever I won in events) left me Dino-less.  Oh well, may that be the worst thing to happen to me this week..
