    Without Kitty R&G is hardly a threat.

    I would put Worthy Cap and Hawkeye on that list though.

    Ok... Hawkeye is hardly a threat without Worthy. It is Worthy CD tiles generation what makes Clint a beast here. What turn combo Worthy/Carol4* up to 11 is R4G. So basically, two meta Worthy teams are not that much without Worthy and R4G respectivetly.

    Also: Teams in which I see R4G in my simulator:
    Kitty+whatever
    Wasp/Worthy + Carol 4*
    Cardusa
    Juggernaut + Gamora
    Nico+ Whatever
    Gamora+Whatever (mostly Juggernaut but I've seen many more).
    Karnak+Chavez

    Teams In which I see Worthy:

    Carol 4*/Wasp + R4G
    Hawkeye5* + whatever

    And teams in which I see Hakweye 5*:

    Worthy + Whatever.

    Maybe in 5* it is different but in mine happy early low champion 4* land, R4G are a champion that fits everywhere in my land. For me, R4G are harder to beat than Bishop as Bishop is threat only if you enter without a plan to beat him (and I have a few teams prepared to deal with him I mean, I can 8/10 teams I use in PVP). For R4G you need a good counter. He is a skip for me as I do not want to use health pack after every fight. I mean, I could beat him but that would mean I have to use 2 teams constantly (that often I see a team with him) but that would require to burn Health packs and leave enjoyment away. So... no. Not yet, I prefer my 10 teams than can do 10 fights in the morning and then at eveving so 1-2 weeks and I am done with simulator for a season.

    Maybe I put it in other words: Counter for Karnak is Juggernaut. But you do not need him to beat him. Counter for R4G is also a Juggernaut or Kraven. Because anything other requires time to works (luck or ap build). Sure, I can bring Gwenpool/whatever and use AP Purple/whatever Boost to start with 4 Purples/4 of whatever but it still means that bad board will kill me. Or in best scenario hit hardly.
    But to clarify: R4G are not OP themselves. They make others OP. And that is OP.

    @Mr_F

    You left out BSSM. He is generally low on the priority list, but I think he is the 2nd or 3rd 5 star you get a free cover for.

    never heard of him as a problem on Kitty/Bishop/Worthy/whatever level so i did not included him.

    The first two clears on that Hawkeye/HammerCap/Peggy node. I kept mis-judging damage levels or something, and things I thought would be under HammerCap's threshold were just over it. I think it took me seven or eight tries just for those first two clears. See the Best Moment thread for part 2!

    I got booted out of top 10 placement for the first time this year, I think. I slept for about 2 hours and woke up 30 minutes before the sub ends. I was still feeling groggy and mistimed my clear by 5 minutes.  :D

    PvP vs a Prof X team.
    Just a casual 120k dmg cascade. No biggie.

    Onslaught/Prof X/ 5-star Jean Grey in the Black Bolt required node.  They make a match 4 that gets rid of the team-ups, which results in a double match-5, which results in the Forehead of Doom wiping out Okoye and enough AP to cast three or four different abilities the following turn.

    Things come in threes, all involving Thor:

    1) Trying to get Thor down to 1/2 health I made the boneheaded decision to do it in a wave node and accidentally cleared the first wave thanks to some unbelievable cascades. Then I couldn't figure out why I was in 2nd place in my slice until I remembered that in wave nodes your points are accumulated per wave cleared. Now I have probably messed up my scoring in the most valuable node in the entire event! (Future game feature: self-flagellation button).
    2) Bringing Thorkoye to the Medusa required node and watching cascades magically get Medusa's attack tiles out, then matched, bringing Thor above 1/2 and then struggling to get him back down and keep him down.
    3) Bringing Thorkoye to the Thanos node and not paying attention to the fact that the Infinity Stone I was about to match brought team health to full.

    I'm pretty Thor about it all...

    If it helps, I've done the same thing multiple times. I'm also somewhat famous for forgetting when a sub is 48 hours and doing all the clears. So, you're not alone, friend.

    God Emperor Doom and his two Brawlers in the 5-star essential node.  I get GED down a considerable chunk of health, and then a monstrous cascade for me of nothing but yellow and black matches.  Heals him up fully, and gives him enough AP to shuffle the board with his yellow.  Two crits, one Fallen Favor, and a cascade for his normal match, and down goes my fully healed Okoye (60K health) in one turn.

    Black Vortex PvP = wall of Juggernaut/R4G teaming up with Kitty/GotG/C4rol, and their common counter: R4G/C4rol/CapWorthy.

    I miss Balance of Power.  :'(

    Been trying to champ Apocalypse. Had some more tokens and CP to spend today. While I did get another cover for him, it was another black one, making him 11/4/3 now. Sigh. I really don't want to do a cover trade, so I guess I'll have to keep trying.

    We had someone quit our alliance after joining the Galactus Event.  Then someone else joined the alliance, and started up the event with us as well.  Last night, our co-Commander asked if anyone else was doing the event, as he was the only one from the Alliance that had joined up...

    Since only the first 20 people that join for an alliance earn the credit for the group, we're down one of our heavy hitters, and he's stuck trying to solo the entire event.  it's looking very unlikely that we'll hit Max Alliance Progression. :(

    That’s unfortunate. Perhaps to help your co-commander, the members could move out temporarily and allow other members to join in to help him in the event. It’s hard to get players in to join in the middle of the event, but it might help them beat one or two more rounds.
    So far as I know, once you join an Alliance for an event, you're "stuck" with that group in your alliance.  I don't think you can change from Alliance Group #1 to Alliance Group #2 if more than 20 people join under your alliance.  While that's done to prevent folks from bagging rewards from multiple alliances, in a case like this it's rather annoying.

    That being said, if you know how to do that, please let me know.

    Had a power outage cost me 800 points in PvP. That was kind've an oof.

    A fun little corner case here with Onslaught's Psychic Blast:

    Fighting Gamora/Rocket/Medusa in the latest PvE.  I use Onslaught's blue to convert all the tiles in the row and column to their weakest color (purple) to set up a match-5 and get Onsluaght's other active ability on-line.  The damage from Psychic Blast kills off Gamora, and changes their team's weakest color to Black.  No more match-5, no more "Get Onslaught invisible before he dies", and *poof*  Onslaught dies.

    14/4/3 smh.

    I saw that the Hunt has Apo shards in the placement rewards. Does that imply that the event after this rewards Apo shards in progression? In that case I could make 50 (top 300 placement, conservative estimate) + 250 (progression next event) shards, which would leave only 100 shards to finish him (I already have 100 shards for him banked).

    At this point that would seem like a better way, I didn't even roster OMD yet because I skipped on the OMD store becayse I was prioritizing CP to finish Apocalypse.

    In the Rahne PVP I brought my champed Thorpocalypse team against an undercovered BRBitty team and thought "Wow easy points!"

    Yeah no. I've never seen a game where things can go "Go really bad really fast" like MPQ. Things were starting off well. Fired Apoc yellow and then Thors red and BRB took some hefty damage and I figured I got it in the bag. Then as if to spite me Apoc yellow starting plugging up my g/r/y tiles and the board was starved of black but abundant in blue. Then Rahne fired her red and Kitty wasted no time buffing everything.

    I still won by the skin of my teeth (Thor had about 2k health left and the next turn would have killed him) but man, this game is stressful sometimes.

    So I was able to finish champing Apocalypse a few days ago (first time ever finishing a Latest before going to Classic purgatory) so I decided to make a small horde of CP and LL tokens. I was able to bank up 19 pulls for when OMD entered latest this morning.  Pulled all 19 (plus an extra 2 from champ rewards) and went 0 for 21 on 5* pulls.
