    This happens too often to be random . I do a spicy 🌶 token pull about 5 times a month and 20% of the time the cover is pulled 40th.

    4 days after last post , exact same thing . Two consecutive Spicy draws , both covers on the 40th pick. That’s about 1600:1 chance of randomly happening

    Are you assuming each cover had the same chance of being pulled? I doubt that’s true since they show the stars on each reward. I fully expect the 4* cover has much lower odds than the 2* covers/rewards, so it is far more likely to not pull it until later in the series. And I’ve pulled many times where it comes in the first 5, or the middle 10, or the last 5, or yes, the last pull… so I think you’re just seeing the outliers unfortunately.

    This should go under best moment but I’ll post it here . It took me only 4 pulls to get the cover today, that cover champed my 4 and gave me a LT. I also got shards as a 4* milestone, which gave me a 2nd cover , and the LT gave me MKnight. Those 2 LT gave me the final 6 shards for another 5* cover . So 4 Spicy pulls gave me four 5* covers in the end .

    My team of loaner Jean Grey, lvl 213 Human Torch and lvl 70 Valkyrie was attacked by lvl 383 Jean Grey, lvl 271 Polaris and lvl 399 Onslaught. How on earth is that even close in power?

    That's a non-loaner Phoenix with one cover and a 2 cover Onslaught with a baby champ 4. 
    Yes, that IS close in power.

    This boost week has been pretty terrible for me and the game rubbed it in by running an event called "For Victory" - Ha! Not this week, game!

    Got hit in Shield Simulator by a player running 550 Apoc along with a 530ish BRB and SW.  Was hitting him back with a troll team of 468 BRB, Mantis, and 4* Carnage. I had them mostly
    stunlocked for about 20 turns and had opposing BRB and SW gone. Apoc had around 100k left. My team was nearly full health. I lost the lock for two turns and the first one they got a huge cascade of mostly TU. Next turn they used a freaking Penance Stare TU on my BRB. One shot. tried to finish it off with just the 4s and got another 30k off Apoc but couldn’t keep the lock going. So annoyIng

    Yep...Penance Stare is one of the few team-ups that I really do not like seeing across the board.  It's almost inevitably a one-shot kill on someone.  Retribution from 3-star Punisher is another one, as inevitably it happens when half Thor is in front.

    Boosted Gambit I saw. Hmm, mine isn't very high but I will give him a spin I thought in Flight Test. So in I went with Riri and Shang. Then it hit me...he locks out red and purple! Oh drat. I had to watch as my team was destroyed pathetically unable to fire any powers apart from Gambit's which were pitifully inadequate. How did I forget that?!?!?! 🙃

    Ironically a few of my "bigger" alliance mates got nailed by big Gambits, might be he's one of those rare cases where the computer plays him better.

    Got accepted at Wharton for my MBA today so in 1 month I’ll have no time for games and have wasted 3 years and 7 months playing MPQ. ( I could return in 2028 🤣). I’ll sell my account to another alliance member I guess . It’s been fun. 😭😭

    Congratulations! I wouldn't call it a waste. You enjoyed it while it lasted and now it's on to bigger and better. When you return in 2028, we should have 3 more Thors, 2 more Caps, and 1 more Kingpin on the roster.  🤣

    Playing Chasm (Ben Reilly) PVP. his pvp is not worth the full grind, playing this until 25 wins and call it a day. Chasm PVP is probably the worst pvp in a long time.
