    Updating the game on my Galaxy Tab S2 and discovering the text is now so small I can barely read it...even with my glasses on.

    After pulling roughly 30 Support tokens last season (didn't really track, but started with just over 20 and pulled several more during the season), I totally failed to pull Tinkerer at any rank. One of two non-stone Supports I'm now missing. 

    I did manage to pull  BW Batons no fewer than three times, so there's that, I guess. Yay for dupes... 😐😑🙄😞

    PvP vs Prof X5 and GED. Doom re-shuffled the board and I swear to Stan Lee it matched HALF of it.
    Suffice it to say, I got creamed.

    I got so caught up in playing Mechanicus the last few days that I lost track of MPQ stuff, and failed to pick up 32 CP because I just...forgot to play Knight Shift, and was about 10 minutes too late to pick up the points I needed for full Progression in The Hunt.
    Also, I decided to take my newly-champed Apocalypse in to Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and then switched back to Carnage after three matches in a row without being able to get the AP for any of Apoc's powers even once.

    I missed the start of the Basilica event, but was sure I would get the legendary token. The next day at work, I got really busy and forgot to hop on for awhile. Still not worried as I estimated that I would still get the token.
    I just finished the last battle and finished 805 points shy of getting the legendary token.

    was hoard breaking in LL's this morning. pulled my usual 80-100 pulls. ended up with a champed onslaught, apoc at 9 covers, and km at 5.  seeing as apoc is awfully useful i decided to pull another 1000 cp worth. pulled 5 straight onslaughts for 5* pulls. looks like apoc rides into the classics sunset @ 9 covers. major bummer.

    5-star Hulk in his required node with Thorkoye.  There are two green enemy strike tiles that make up a match that I've been avoiding, since the Mutation in the node will do 8K damage per special tile match.  Banner transforms into Hulk, makes that match, and Thor (who is tanking green and at about 20K health) takes 16K damage, dropping him down to about 4K health.

    Worst of all, I didn't even get the 3 green AP for the match.

    Absolutely horrible boards kept me from getting any clears off the initial loaner node of Venom Bomb sub 2 during my grind. 

    Also, I'm firmly convinced there's something in the code that when you use iHulk, the game refuses to drop new green tiles in from the top when making matches. Or if they do, they fall in the exact right spot to make a match.

    And there's definitely an increased probability that if two green tiles are next to each other, the one iHulk adds *WILL* be right next to them, completing the match and dropping you back below the threshold you need to activate his passive. Especially when you *need* the passive to proc to end the match or prevent an enemy from firing a nuke.

    Getting destroyed 3 times in a row in Simulator because I could not get any red for Valkyrie and blue for Iceman4. The enemy team was Carol4, Switch and Spider-Man3... And Spider-Man stunlocked me to death. Lol.

    Just in general, dragging Banner through VB has been awful. I find myself using Okoye's red on his countdown more often than on enemy tiles.

    You're not the only one!  It's also the only time I wish that I could target *friendly* countdown tiles with Kitty.

    Playing in SCL9 means his green is actually pretty useful as an AOE (thanks to Thorkoye) to clear nodes quickly.

    Look, he's not good but he's still a little better than some others.  To be clear, I only used him on the 5E.....

    Another one for today is finding out that iHulk's self-damage whenever he makes a match trigger's Venom's passive and creates a shield tile for your team.  That makes his yellow do a LOT more damage than it normally would.  :(

    There's your problem right there. You got an invisible tile instead of an invisibility tile. It's like that Duck Dodgers bit when his Disintegrater Pistol disintegrates.

    Dude, like it made my day! Yes, I had invisibility tile in my mind.

    I'm trying to finish off my Apocalypse as well. When KM entered latest is was at 5/3/3. I'm still at 5/3/3. I did pull four 5* though, all green for Onslaught to put him at 0/5/0....

    Simulator PVP. I went into fight with Cardusa/Mr. F, got my 8 blue and was happy with "I will stun Bishop" to learn that I had 0 blue AP. I learned the hard way that he also steals blue AP. Jesus Christ, does he has a boundary of his OPiness? And I am 4* player and I can clearly say that his level of OPiness is infinite and that he HAS TO be nerfed/changed like... a months before he was released*?


    * Which means that he never should be released as he is now.

    He also reduces your strongest colour by 6 when he uses his stun. So, Mr Fantastic is your highest levelled character. If he's tied with one of the other two, switch him to the left or right and it should target yellow or red. I have no problem dealing with Bishop as a 4* player. I think it could be a case of using the wrong team to deal with him.

    So I somehow blundered into a Top 100 finish in SCL10. So why, you may be asking, is that a bad thing? I also acknowledge that you might not be asking that: you could be thinking Mmm, is having a third donut really a bad thing? I can't decide that for you. Anyway, where was I? Ah yes - so now my idiot brain got to thinking. You did that. With Banner! You can do it again! This is clearly nonsense - to start I had no intention of achieving this and I can't tell you whether it was down to luck, player apathy or space monsters but my brain needs to disengage itself of the idea. Also - Legion was the 4E and he goes invisible! Ha ha, bad luck space monsters and Spider-dweebs! But that isn't an every day thing - one day it is going to be Jubilee and there is no way she is going to survive past even one Practiced Pistol shot. And another thing - I totally chickened out of even trying the instant death mode. I am a fraud - SCL10 should be for true warriors. So there really is no chance of me going back to SCL10 for Strange Sights...definitely not. Or maybe not.
    So did you eat that donut?
