    Four wipes on the 5E in the first sub of Cosmic Chaos. Usually, I can handle them regardless, but there are a few that are absolute nightmares with an under-covered Essential, and this is one of them.
    Actually, the previous 5E wasn't very fun, either. 6/7 clears with Featured Professor X, I didn't get a single match-4+.

    Finished my opening clears of the second sub in 1st place. Because I wasn't paying enough attention and accidentally did a fifth clear on one Node :(

    Cosmic Chaos is horrible. The end.

    0/20 in Back Me Up, Guys! store. 2/23 in Good Fortune store, one Captain Marvel, one IM46 so far.. in the meantime, from Latests I went 16/90 with 8 of them Carnage, 2 Prof X and 6 Beta Ray Bill's covers where 2 of them were yellow that I had to save.

    Terrible month all together.

    Edit: 30/1/2020 2/27in GF store, 17/92 in Latests, another Carnage

    In an episode of brain-fart I selected hammercap in the 3* deadpool pvp. That didn’t go well. Not well at all.

    Bit late with the post but played 40+ matches in Deadpool PVP and only got one Whales team up :/

    Waited just a bit too long, missed t20 by significantly fewer points than the last clear of the wave node that I didn't quite finish in time :(

    It's a very familiar story.. it's hard to estimate how long to clear wave nodes.

    Thinking of going for a T1/T10 finish in PVE, so get myself up early to do my clears as soon as slice begins... then selected the wrong SCL.

    I'm a 'champed 4* player' and only play PVP to 900 and then shield out. This 3* Cap PVP when I get to 825-850 there is only 5 opponents to choose from (thanks, cycle.. eh.. skip button!) and you already guessed what those teams are... Gritty! And while I narrowly beat a lvl 360 Kitty I'm just not able to beat those teams, even if it was 'fun' to play against them.

    I hereby apologise to all players I hit 2-3 times in quick succession to even get to 857 (868 after a defensive win). Ugh.. and here I was thinking a game should be fun...  :(

    Quicksilver PvP, and their Quicksilver is down to about 2K health, so I'm ready to take him out next turn.  He makes a blue match, which locks two tiles.  Three more blue tiles come down, which locks two more tiles.  Three *more* blue tiles come down, and suddenly he goes Supersonic and does about 6K damage to my entire team.

    Odds of six straight blue tiles coming down consecutively - About 1-in-88,000.  (Assuming they're 15% likely and team-ups are 10%)

    I guess I should have just played the lottery instead...

    And I thought my example was bad luck...

    Having to use North Star (level 115) in S.H.I.E.L.D training. He must be the suckiest ever. The first match with Valkyrie, Karnak and North Star was a drawn out pain and Karnak died, he sucks too.
  • LambadaDaveLambadaDave Posts: 129 Tile Toppler
    I will be unlikely to finish S.H.I.E.L.D training because it requires level 209 Northstar instead of Rainbow Bright (Runaways).  I was even holding onto CP to help grind him up, but it's just too many covers left to get.

    I have a hoard half/draw half approach to the game. Based on my roster, there's an 86.1% chance I can draw a usable (e.g. not already at 5 for the color or 13 overall) 5* cover from classics, which means on average it costs me 194 CP per usable 5* cover. So if I start at 1,000, I save until I get to 1,194, then draw until I get a usable cover, then save until I get to 1,194 + 194 = 1,388. That means on average I go 388 CP between pulls. It seems like a long time.

    Now it's great when I pull a 5* on the first pull, because I only need 194 + 20 = 214 CP until I pull again. But my last pull, I went 22 pulls before I pulled a single 5* cover. So now I need to save another 22 x 20 + 194 = 634 CP before I pull again. I should keep better track of my CP earning because I feel like this will take me into August.

    Simulator fight vs Thor, Prof X and Okoye.  My team is Half Thor, healed Okoye, and Dr Strange.  My first turn is a simple match 3 by Okoye.  Their first turn is a match 4 of Team Ups (lots of damage from Prof X, boosted by Okoye) followed by a match-5 of Team Ups (even more damage) into a match 4 of purple, which takes out Okoye on my first turn.

    Fastest retreat ever.

    Was playing against ProfX and MEH. That was suicide. They kept getting match-4s and match-5s from the free move.

    And once again, a Turn 1 retreat...  Prof X, Black Bolt and Strange.  My match-4 blue left the board with no match-4s.  Their match-3 cascaded into a match 6 (!) which then cascaded into three more match-4s.  Strange was taken out, and half-Thor lost another 10K of health.  They ended the turn with 15 red, 8 purple (for Prof X to fire off)

    While I did want a quick game while my breakfast was getting ready, that's *not* what I was thinking of...

    First event featuring SCL10, I was playing SCL9 and headed for T20 because so many people had moved up to SCL10. I wasn't paying attention and did my 7th clears on all the nodes before noticing that it was a 48-hour sub.
