    I've never seen a game where things can go "Go really bad really fast" like MPQ.
    Yep.  Just happened to me in the Apoc required node in Liberty Island.  Moonstone, Demolisher and Carrier in play.  Okoye's fully healed at 60K health.  Thor is at around 25K, and Apoc's at around 40K.  I've got a huge amount of Team-up AP, but very little red even with Thor's destruction.  A turn or two more, and I should have enough to finish this off.  No sweat.

    Their turn rolls around.
    Two random tiles get destroyed by the Appetite for Destruction countdowns, resulting in a match-5 and a separate match-4.
    Then a countdown goes off, for more damage.
    Using the AP gathered by these matches, Moonstone fires off her red, followed by her purple.
    Then they actually make their move, which results in another big cascade.
    Then the strike/attack tile damage goes off.

    By the end of the turn, Okoye's and Apoc are both dead, and Thor is down to 3K health.  For those of you doing the math, that's at least 120K in damage in a single turn.  :#

    I wished I had taken videos of the matches from my last 2 days. As I was getting hit 5 times by someone in SHIELD Sim, I kept getting hit by bad boards and wiped 3 times, including to the person who hit me. In one match, I couldn’t even deal 5000 damage to the other team before I lost.

    Today, I was climbing in Lethal Intent, winning all 20 matches comfortably, then on the last match, against a team I saved last (highest queue), hell broke lose.

    Apocalypse Half Thor against Apocalypse Onslaught. I made sure to heal Apocalypse and Thor had about 20 k health. Despite denying any match-4/5 opportunities, they cascades into 7 yellow APs before I could get any. My Apocalypse tanks yellow, so it shouldn’t be an issue to deny yellow! But, they got there first. The following turn, they got 3 match-4/5 combinations. Apocalypse and Gamora were downed in a single turn. I had to retreat. I did a few quick matches to regain my points, then  I saw my score drop and a hit notification comes.

    Just realized that if you have bad luck like me and get 0 Daken from over 60 pulls, there's no way to get a cover for his PVE essential node without spending more CP since Heimdall is the progression reward.

    Tested today Heimdall + Vulture + Black Cat a.k.a. Team Airborn. Unexpectedly powerful and lot's of fun.

    If this is your worst mpq moment of today, you are one lucky player ;)

    Ever since the introduction of shards into the economy and specifically placement and progression rewards, I've been enjoying using the daily shard offers to "top off" 5*s who are close to being finished and just need a little extra push.
    Iron Man is not one of them.
    Iron Man has been 4 of my last 14 offers.
    If the offer is random (and assuming latest legends are not offered), the chance of getting the same character out of 44 total more than 3 times out of 14 is 0.02%.
    That's 1 in 4496.

    Dr Ock's Reactor CD killed my team. The last time it happened was probably two years ago.

    I misclicked and opened 50 of my Mighty Tokens that wanted to wait until Polaris is available in tokens.

    @HoundofShadow
    Same thing happened on round 1 to me. I think I actually had enough to throw breaker of stone, but didn’t think about it and had it @3 anyway.

    This thread needs a dislike button.

    We experienced the exact same situation: Dr Ock in the first wave. I was trying to use Breaker of Stone but it destroys a random column.

    Now my team  to deal with Dr Ock are Cho, Karnak and IM40/Vulture.

    GSBW is my friend vs Doc Ock. Each of her abilities can destroy the reactor CD directly, She is also boosted for Sinister Six events. IM40 or Vulture can help in getting the AP, but is usually not needed.

    I went with She-Hulk, XF Wolvie and and 3* Thor. Lots of board control ect.

    Seeing Gambit fight alongside Sentinels in DDQ. Is nothing sacred???
  • krakenoonkrakenoon Posts: 348 Mover and Shaker
    I went classic CA for Venom/Doc/Vulture. Took longer than I’m used to, but had no problems finishing with full health.

    Well, the player base is in the, what, tens of thousands? Gotta be happening to someone at that point.

    My 92k health Apoc can't possibly get one-shot when the AI has 0 AP.
    *Professor X and Onslaught enter the chat.*
    It's okay, there are no match4 or match5s on the board and I'm just going to make this match in the corner to avoid RNG dropping something weird out there.
    *MPQ enters the chat*
    Match4-TUs destroyed-cascade into Match5-Match5-TUs destroyed-cascade into Match5-TUs-Match4....
    *Phone screen goes dark waiting for AI turn 1 to end....*
    DEFEAT
    Well, that was a fun game. I hope I didn't also get attacked 4 times on defense....
    *MPQ winks*

    Most important: Onslaught is Professor X and Magneto. We shouldnt be able to use both in same math with Ons;aught. Althought we cant use Human Torch (Johny Storm) and Human Torch (Jimm Hammond) and we should be. The list go on. Like 4* Hulks (Amadeus Cho and Banner), 4* Thor and 2*/3*/5* Thor. And is more wierd cases: 4* and 5* Iceman and Jean Grey are SAME person but from different timeline so we SHOULD BE able to use both in same match.

    But I will give ya even more fun facts.
    1. How many different characters we have is hard to count due to different timelines or dimensions heroes thanks to MCU version incorporation of some characters like 4* Black Widow, Hammercap, IW Cap, 4* Gamora, 4* Grocket, 5* Thor or 5* Wasp. In some cases we do not even have a "proper" version like in case of Vulture or Mordo when we have only MCU version. To be honest 4* Fury might be either MCU version, Ultimate or Nick Fury JR.
    So if we exclude MCU only version characters (like Vulture), MCU dopplegangers (i.e has comic bio and MCU image like Switch,Vision, Quicksilver), multiple versions ect. then actually we have only ~130 comic based characters incorporated. And yes, I calculated Anti-Venom and 4*Venom as one and Cloak and Dagger as two. Pretty far from 200+ we can choose from. Even if we count MCU versions as differect character, then we are still behind 200 *~170). So for me, annoucment that M.O.D.O.K. was 200th character/champion in the game was a lie. He is 200th PLAYABLE OPTION to choose. We are farm from 200.
    Supports were not taken into account.

    2) 1* Venom is not Eddie Brock: his name is Mac Gargan a.k.a. Scorpion.
    3) In comics, Carnage and Green Goblin never were a Sinister Six members and Venom (Brock) was once and quickly left due to some antagonism in the team and chased his former teamamtes (such as Vultutre, Kraven II or Sandman). So our ingame version is very off as only Doc Ock and Sandman are correct*. Also the antagonism of Carnage and Venom makes it impossible for them to be in one team.  As of today there is no way to build "proper" Sinister Six team in game.
    *MPQ Vulture is a MCU version and he never was a Sinister Six Member.
    4) Spider-Man and Black Widow are only characters who has version in each * land. Altought, in we take point 1) into consideration, there is no such character as 4* SM and BW are from MCU. Then closest is 4: Storm, Spider-Man and Black Widow. Iron Man and Hawkeye can not be considered as 4* Ronin and 5* IM are MCU versions of Hawkeye Ronin and Iron Man and Hulkbuster is MCU Doppleganger.

    I think OJSP's theory about series of losses notification and bad board could be plausible. I experienced this in only slice 2 and slice 5. Your board will turn into trash, you will be getting useless colours and your match will be crawling. When you finally win or lose the match, you will get at least 4 notifications about losses.

    Gambit will do anything for some bucks. You can take the Gambit outta the swamp but he is still filled with 'Gators and swamp rats.

    After taking out Green Goblin from the enemy team, Onslaught's Psychic Blast ability against an Assassin and Grenadier will turn all of the tiles in the row and column of your choice from their strongest color (Green) to their weakest color (Green)

    Well...that's helpful.  Thanks.
