    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.
    They're definitely 1A and 1B in terms of Difficult Nodes.

    *checks upcoming event*

    Good news!  We'll have Hearts Of Darkness up next to compare! :)

    No one else hates the MEH/Gladiathor/Valk node in Cosmic Chaos?  Oh look, coming up after DPvMPQ with it's own pair of annoying 5Es.  (I think that CC one is the worst in the game.)

    I used my own GE Doom with boosted C4rol. Get the goons down ASAP and prioritize photonic barrage, let Doom match yellow

    I used Bishop and Strange. Keep Doom on stun-lock, but use Strange’s powers to take out the doom bots while sucking down the enemy black.

    Yep, Cosmic Chaos is the worst in my opinion. But at this least this time round I will have Prof X to assist.  I hope to have him champed by then, which will be a very welcome addition to my normal Gritty team.

    I needed 6 attempts for 3 wins against GED with a 2-red-cover IM46. And now I have a 1-green-cover Ghost Rider required for the Royal Family...

    Silly me...here I was trying to use 5-star characters against someone who is about 60 levels higher than my highest character.   :/  Not surprisingly, this worked just fine.  Also not surprisingly, I needed a health pack for Bishop after every one of those fights.

    I actually didn't have too much of a problem with this node, even though my 5* Iron Man isn't anywhere near being fully covered. I used my champed 5* Strange with Okoye, and boosted team-ups, R/Y and B/P for the third and fourth clears. I took a bit of damage, but it's wasn't overly tricky.

    Pulled an Elektra from my daily haul of standard tokens. I fought back a tear as I looked at the measly 6 shards I’d earned toward Luke Cage, as opposed to what would have been the cover that gets me my next LT. Long road ahead.

    My worst moment was getting the new update and now having to use the **** new UI.

    Oh yeah...changing covers for the 1-stars to get XP for the next SHIELD rank is incredibly annoying.  Having to scroll down on the character sheets is poor as well.

    This is on Steam...your mileage may vary on a tablet.  Oh, and the bug with the Steam chat window is still not fixed either.

    A few months ago:

    I want some green and red Hela to finish her up before she leaves LLs...

    Open hoard.

    4 Black Hela and 15 **** Rescues.

    Yesterday:

    I want some Blue and Green Icemen to finish him up before he leaves LLs...

    Open hoard.

    3 Yellow Icemen and 11 **** Carbages.

    I think I am finally ready for End Game as I dont think I can take this abuse anymore.

    What is supposed to be the most rewarding part of the game ends up being by far the most upsetting.

    Sometimes I kind of wish the game would just tell you "RNG is going to crush your soul this match, you lose, your heroes are dead, here's the main menu" without having to put you through the torture of watching it. I just played back to back PvP's where I wiped. First one was against a 5* Prof X who had at least one match-4 on every single turn of the match. They never even had to fire an active power to down my whole team, and this was without specials on the board.

    Second one was against a JJ where the AI had only one move to make on the entire board on their first turn... just one match... and OF COURSE her trap tile spawns right there. Hits my Bishop, which hits their Bishop, who hits back and downs mine on turn 1.

    If you're going to do me like that, just say "you're not winning" and end it. It'd be so much better for my sanity.

    Need one ProfX blue to finish him off. Last four 5s have been 3 Carbages and an (already champed) Iceman.

    At least you're on your way now to that PX cover if you have him targeted.

    As long as he's still in Latest, you'd might want to not make him TH though.

    Yeah, I thought about targeting him, but I have two saved covers already so a cover in any color would let me finish him. 

    Unfortunately the only “targetable” toon I have in 5 land is OML. The rest would take forever under this system.

    I'm 'lucky' in having Okoye at 5/5/0, so it's a risk free TH for me.

    Today what everybody is complainig about regarding shards happend. Had 4Torch as targeted hero as I needed one more cover for Shield trainung. When he was aleady above 200 shard I drew one Torch cover from a heroic. So I officially wasted the shards because I don't want more Torches from this feature now.

    Came up against my first Worthy Cap/Hawkeye team, got them down to all dead but Hawkeye and he had 535 health and of course the AI gets a lucky cascade and wipes me out. So unfair!!!!

    Back-to-back turn-1 wipes in PvP due to absolutely insane cascades.  They weren't even Gritty teams and my champed Okoye was in front and full health both times.  What the heck am I supposed to do with that?

    Did you get hit? I just lost 2 retals because someone was hitting me (it was actually a defensive win). I firmly believe that when the game is waiting to notify us of an impending change in scores, we'll get hit by bad boards and nasty cascades, irrespective of whether we are losing or gaining points.
    Luckily, I didn't. I lost those two matches so quickly, I don't think anyone had time to hit me.
