    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..
    Damn I got like five from my vault and another two from the post Anniversary vault.

    Realising that my bonus rewards were inactive, and I needed to make a purchase... the day after the Hero Point sale finished.  Bummer, my $2.99 could have gotten me an extra 60 HP yesterday.

    Encountered two bugs during Webbed Wonder that has destroyed any chance of good placement...
    First I got the blank reward screen, which burned enough time to cause me to miss my final node clear.
    Second I got the display bug where it showed my node at 3/6 and when I won the battle, it showed 5/6.

    After months, I finally got a bonus 5* from a pull again. But it's a blue cover for my 3/4/6 Jessica Jones. Boo.

    I think I might just set my 5* bh to my 3/1/2 Doom or my 1/2/2 Hawkeye, just in order to prevent future disappointment of receiving a cover in a color I already have 5 in again.

    Sigh.

    Yeah, there's no way I'd put someone with 5 in a colour as my 5* BH. Too much chance for Murphy's Law to poke me in the eye. I won't even do it on lower tiers if I have anyone better to BH.

    Meh, since JJ has no feeder I figured should try it anyway. Probably wouldn't have if I had her at x/5/5, though.

    To make it worse: if I remember correctly, that 6th blue JJ cover was also a bonus hero cover.

    I feel 5* bonus heroes are rare enough that they should guarantee awarding a cover in a color you haven't maxed yet. Pipe dreams.

    Err... America Chavez feeds JJ though?

    Uhg. I mustve consulted an obsolete chart. I feel stupid now. But thanks! Turns out I need only 2 more AC covers for a much required red cover for JJ!

    For future reference, this is the only feeder that gives covers out of sequence. All the other ones feed a top cover, middle cover, then bottom cover at 280, 300, 320 and then repeats the same cycle at 340, 350, and 360.

    Chavez gives the top cover at 280 and 340, but then the bottom cover at 300 and 350 and the middle cover at 320 and 360.

    So I'm trying to finish up Storm before she leaves latest. She is at a 5/2/5 build. Also Iceman is at 3/5/2 and Prof $ is 5/1/1. So of course my last seven 5* covers have all been for the colors that I have 5 on. Now have 3 saved for both Storm and Iceman and 1 for Prof $.

    Sitting at 827 in High Stakes, had a 75 point Grockitty team queued up. Piece of cake for Okoye and Sabretooth, right? Nope. Not a single Strike is matchable, and a brutal cascade has me all but wiped on Turn 3. I hadn't yet been hit in the event, so I don't bother shielding while I look for something else halfway decent to hit. Find a couple of decent ones, take them out, score in the corner says 903, so I toss up an 8 hour shield and check the leaderboard to sync. Suddenly my score is back under 800 as a wave of delayed notifications pile in. I did manage to scramble back up to 900, but good lord that was frustrating.

    Sadly this is why I say as good as Sabretooth is he is not a reliable Grockitty counter. I've had waaay too many matches that went like the above.

    Slowness of Venom Bomb and distraction from the World Series on TV caused me to miss the 7th clear of 4E and the 7th and 7th clear of the loaner node in Sub3 last night.
    Dropped from 4th place down to 12th. So much for those Spidey2099 covers.  :(

    Guess I need to take this a bit more seriously if I intend to regularly be able to hit T5/T10.

    Yeah, it's very hit or miss.
    On a different note, One of these days, maybe I'll remember that the 5E in the third sub of Venom Bomb takes absolutely forever, and give myself enough extra time to get through it. Tanks my placement every time.

    Spent 600 CP in the Carnage store.  Got one five star, and it was a Green Goblin cover for the color I already had five colors in.

    Got stuck on the rewards blue screen 3 times and dropped from 3rd to 38th! (Edit: apparently the very last node counted, so I only dropped to 27th.. if there was no problem, I'd be able to clear it again once more and maintain 3rd)

    If I do get t50, the Spider-Man 2099 cover would be a Saved Cover.
    Not sure Customer Support understood the problem was.. apparently they are sorry that I encountered a connection issue.. but I was able to do everything else using my phone.

    It was just the reward screen wouldn't load as quick as usual. So what caused it? I want to know if it's something I could fix, so it doesn't happen anymore in the future. Does anyone know?


    As far as I know, that is a connection issue, just it's dropping in a slightly different spot than when you get the loading bit with the various symbols running over and over.

    This one was entirely my own tinykitty fault, but it still hurt: Forgot to charge my phone, and the battery died in the middle of a match in Vicious Cycle. It was a Sabrekoye vs. Grockitty match that I was actually winning, too. By the time my phone's usable again, I'm probably going to be down at like 200 points or something. At least I made it to 575 and got my CP from it.

    And I thought I felt bad for spending 425 cp and getting three Goblins and a Spidey. Just wanted one stupid Carnage cover, just one, but noooo.

    Kept losing matches due to multiple bad cascades. Not a good day to play the game..
    I feel your pain. After Venom's pvp I thought that Carnage would be a breeze but I'm eating health packs left and right because the enemy team keeps nuking my guys right before I win. May as well be a Medusa pvp.

    "We'll give the 5-star required node a God Emperor Doom with a yellow/black feeder.  What's the worst that could happen."

    31K damage every three turns, that's what.  Good thing he's not immune to whales...

    That was an awful node indeed. I finally used Okoye/Sabretooth with boosted APs and with a little luck and several tries he was down.

    Its almost as bad as the Royal Family node.
