    Waste of a heroic 10 pack today - all 2*s :(

    How about this: I go to fight with 2*Hawkeye and have critical boost. What you know, board start with two match five possibilities that can be done separately without interfering each other! I immediately do them and get another change to make a match-5!! So after those three, board accidentally (or maybe intentionally) destroy 2 of the speedshots, so I have now 7 of them in the board! I'm sure of my victory. But then comes opponent turn. Somehow even when i try to avoid AI to interfere any way speedshot tiles, it still gets most of them away - and eventually win the fight. How-in-Earth???

    I’ve been in cascade hell for over a week now. They just literally fall from the sky for the AI. Fortunate enough to have the restraint to not throw my phone about 20 times so far...

    Hasn't been particularly bad for me lately but I did have a match against 5pX yesterday where one match from the AI was a vertical match-4, leading to a skyfall match-6 (as in 6 tiles dropping in), resulting in an extra turn that also included a match-4 with the crit tile that was created. I think during the cascade, there was another match-4 also triggered. Nearly wiped my close to full health Okoye. 😅

    Missed the final clear on the main page node of The Hunt by a handful of seconds because the AI decided it had to get a cascade and fire ALL the powers and it cost me T10. I had the AP to kill them all, just couldn't get to my turn fast enough.

    At least I didn't lose out on a potential LT.

    @DeNappa
    Now, have that happen at least once a day with numerous other skyfalls throughout the day. Does it sound like a fun way to spend your time? (and health packs!) /vent
    This is enough to make me want to keep QS in rotation...8D

    Well, to be fair, I pretty often run Thorkoye+5pX myself, and sometimes the cascades are ridiculously in my favour as well. I never really kept track, but I think the most times my own pX's passive has triggered on match-4 or higher during my own cascades must be around 5 or 6 times. If you happen to have a nice bank of team-up AP, that's pretty neat :mrgreen: .

    Thing/Kitty/Bill mirror match. They have a Chain Lightning team-up. It ends up clearing the entire board, except for the two Fortified Countdowns that were out. It wasn't actually that bad from a winning the game stand point, but it took forever to resolve.

    Holding T10 in stupid timed PVE through two subs.

    Third sub - app crash during opening clear. So closely timed anymore, will this knock me out of top placement?

    Oh no....it crashed during the 3e wave. Reopening I reclear the wave for the first time...and the timer restarted. It apparently counted part of the wave for points, and for timers.

    So now after wasting my time, and planning time in my day around stupid game time, for two and a half days...it doesn't matter, at all.

    Really, really wish PVE wasn't PVP in disguise. Because that's what it is - I'm playing against other players....and when my app crashes (second time in a couple days, this build isn't working for Steam @devs...) and others don't - or say, others are playing on a specific device that speeds up animations more than what I have - it's purely PVP.

    A survey about which would be the next hero

  • DogfaceDogface Posts: 739 Critical Contributor

    I went into PVP late, hoping to catch a flip, which I didn't (first bummer). Then I decided to at least get the 10CP. I went up against a Chavez/Prof X team and boy did they get a cascade of match-fours, so match lost (second bummer) and not enough time to get my CP (third bummer).

    Strange Sights has the Mr Sinister as the required 5-star, who has a passive that throws traps out onto the board whenever the enemy team fires off a power. Book of Vishanti's 5-star required node? Three Ultron robots. :s

    You’re not seeing the upside here.

    Sinister trap spam vs goons (like, say, ninjas) is pure annoyance for me.

    Also the variety of SS enemies means you’ll get your chance to see trap-tasticness on the other days.

    On the plus side, they do hit the point where they're triggering his black reasonably often, and once you get some blue, they're almost guaranteed to cascade into some of those. With half Thor and Prof X, I cleaned up on that node with little trouble.
  • qandolsqandols Posts: 897 Critical Contributor
    That wave node right before the last node in Book of Vishanti just makes you wanna cry. I used Dak3n with Prof X and Kitty but everytime he managed to create red strikes the were put in such a way that they never lasted long. And the board shakes and generally go bollocks from the sentries. Bah.

    For the second new character release in a row, the featured 5-star is one that I was hoping to get shards for.  Last time, it was Jessica Jones that I was hoping to get shards for, and the shards were for Immortal Hulk.

    That didn't turn out to be quite so bad, as I ended up busting my stash for him and got him up to 4/5/3 with enough shards so that the half-cover from an SCL 10 event would get him that final cover.  He's featured in the Deadpool vs MPQ now, but the shards are for the 5-star Yelena Benlova.

    There's always next time, I guess...

    Whoever thought this rewards scheme,  where shards for one character overrides the shards for another, was a good idea should be strongly encouraged to rethink that position.

    And it just hit me that this is the first event where Immortal Hulk gets featured...and he's already overshadowed by a new 5-star character.  Anyone else think that's just a bit crazy???

    As for the worst moment today, it's been getting screwed over twice by team-ups (!!!) in the Black Widow event. 

    First one was vs Okoye/Prof X team, where they had a team up of Kamala Khan's Inhuman Stretchiness.  You know, the one that places green tiles in three different places for the team to get a match 4, triggering Prof X's passive three times?  There goes 40K of health on my Black Widow.

    Second was Jean Gey's Mind over Matter ability, which the enemy team fired on their fourth turn thanks to at least one team--up match each turn with cascades.  While Okoye wasn't on their team, it wiped out all of Rocket's strike tiles...and Rocket shortly thereafter.

    Just passed 500 in I Spy when my phone decided it needed to shut down and reboot itself for some reason. Got hit during the process, and just couldn't bring myself to start up again.

    Reading the forums just now and being alerted to the fact that they took the 18 CP reward for hitting 1000 in PvP and bumped it to needing 1200. It was great while it lasted...
