    After pulls for MK , I’m stuck with a 0/5/5 Crystal . Progress shards will leave me with 2/5/5 minimum. I hate to hoard but am I stuck doing it until she leaves ? Only 7 of 9 LL covers are helpful now.

    Good - Seeing that Black Panther is the 5-star required for the latest event, since I need about 200 shards to champ him.

    Bad - Seeing that we don't get shards for him this time around thanks to Gargamel.

    This is at least the second time I've missed out on champing a character because of a new release...and before anyone asks why he's not my 5-star favorite, that would be Black Suit Spidey, who is also about 250 shards away from being champed.
    Where is your 4* Panther at? 
    LVL 324, which means I would need 14 levels to get enough shards to champ 5-star Panther.

    Iron Spidey, who is my 4-star favorite, is LVL 313, which means I only need 5 levels to get the shards to champ BSS.

    I try to champ each LL before they rotate out. Ideally without pulling any extra cover unless they are something I particularly like. But I’ve learned that it’s more realistic to expect them leaving at 451/452, either through extra pulled covers, or wonky distribution. Crystal does seem good enough that a couple extra levels beyond the bad distribution are worthwhile getting her champed. I have 2 saved covers already, and am waiting on shards to see where I am before pulling more

    Taking approximately 2 minutes each to clear the first two or three sub where you must use Black Widow or Red Guardian, and 3 minutes for the Black Widow and Yelena team up node. That's about 7-10 minutes for clearing 3 to 4 nodes in SCL 10. As a reference, 10 minutes would allow me to clear 3x each for CN, 4* and 4* nodes, which is equal to 9 nodes.

    Now my T10 placement is in jeopardy, with a difference of 5, 6 and 9 points behind me.

    i guess this must be my first time playing SCL10 Operation Spider Silk because I don't remember taking such a long time to clear one node.

    The 4 day Spider Silk is running for the first time this year so possibly you’re right .

    Got T12 for Operation Spider Silk.

    T10: 123399
    T11: 123388
    T12: 123377
    T13: 123377
    T14: 123357
    T15: 123357

    I decided to list T10-T15 because I thought the numbers look great. A consistent 2-3 minute delay cost you at least 20 points, if you play for speed.

    Lesson learned for this pve: ask for 4 powerful 5* teamup before you play this pve, so that you can finish the mandatory Black Widow/Red Guardian/Yelena node in 30 seconds.

    I got 29th and I don’t pay attention to speed . The reward difference is so minor I don’t see the point of having a video game run my life for such a petty increase in placement. But if others want to play your way it’s perfectly fine too, play anyway you like .

    I always save my 5* Prof X teamups for this event and Wakanda to do those stupid nodes on the main sub. It's best to ask for 5* Prof on the previous event so you have them ready to go. I remember one time I fought either Yelena or Winter Soldier and they killed me three straight times and then I didn't start the sub for like nearly ten minutes after it had started. I was like "Never again." So I just go in, collect teamup ap and then one-shot the enemy with red unless it's multiple enemies then I'll use his green for the aoe.

    I got killed in one of the nodes and that was 1 minute wasted. Thanks for the 5* Prof X recommendation. I was thinking of BRB's green or blue. Prof X looks really versatile, but it will most likely to be red or green choice.

    5* Scarlet Witch PVP. Every match drags endlessly. I even managed to lose to two seed teams  :open_mouth:

    Ya this PVP blows  and right after the America Chavez one too. I just hate Boosted 5 stars in PVP in general really ruins PVP in my opinion

    Would you rather face a changing list of boosted 5*s or an endless sea of Wanda & Colossus battles?

    I couldn’t be bothered. 5* PX team up for the win. Puck’s only value is he feeds Colossus.

    PVP as of late because The Devs thought it would be a fun idea to Boost 5 Star Kitty Okoye APoc and Immortal Hulk all at the same time. Thanks Devs PVP has been so much fun🙄

    Better to have them all boosted at once then running into a different team with them every week.

    I just pulled 35 LTs and only got two 5* covers. (1x MK, 1x Gargantos), which is abysmal.
    That said, not sure if it counts. I just realised I'm better off not hoarding LTs right now. I'm basically ~17 Emma Frost covers and 180 5* shards away from a fully covered Kitty. So even those 35 pulls actually helped lots for the shards. Go, Emma, go!
    Still, 2 in 35 is just sad.
