    I think the important part is that you can't buy 5* covers once you have them. Unlike the 4*s, where you just win one or two of each and then you can max your covers for just over the price of a legendary token.

    How big a bump to the 4* drop rate in heroic tokens are we going to see at the start of Season XIX?
    Not yet set, expect an answer closer to season start.

    So the Epic rarity is higher than the Legendary rarity. Every WoW player worth their salt knows it's the other way around.
    Wait, that means 6*s are Artifacts? 6* Ornithopter Confirmed!

    Even though it's a 5% chance, any 5* cover they pull will be for Surfer, so this is the one time that there's less RNG to fight against.

    "$960 worth of legendary packs just to get better odds than not of getting a single cover."

    I'm still thinking someone with way too much money is going to buy enough 40 packs to get a few covers, but when you are looking at buying $12,480 just to give yourself better odds than not of getting 13 covers... and no guarantee that you are even going to get the right covers... well, I stand by my college tuition comment.

    What levels can we expect for the 4* in ddq?

    Will 5* characters be buffed on release or in the regular buffing schedule?

    Still being tweaked, but expect "Level ouch". The idea is that you're going to need a real live 4* character in there, and a 1/0/0 70 is going to have an extremely difficult time of it.

    Are the deadpool battles 4* vs 4*?

    Not at launch. They come out of the gate as a usable 255 and only get stronger from there.
  • Will there be any chance of a 5* (however slim it will be) in a Standard Token, like there is a slim chance of a 4* now? Similarly, in Heroic Tokens?

    Or will the upcoming Legendary Tokens be the only tokens with a %chance to pull a 5*?

    Will it be a required 4* or just throw your best team at it? Thanks for the fast reply also, you must be refreshing every 2 seconds lol

    Sounds to me like I'll finally have an opportunity to play those % match damage boosts. I'm sitting on 100 of those things.

    Probably 0.0000000000000000001% chance lol

    The video mentioned "a lot more DDQ battles" (or something along those lines). Are these Insanely Tought4* Battles (which woo-hoo, that's what I wanted weeks ago for Reed's launch!) the only new ones, or will DDQ have a new structure in addition to the Legendary Battle?

    Nope. Legendary Tokens are the sole outlet for 5*s for now.

    A different required 4* every rotation.

    The former. We're adding additional battles, the ones there at current will stay the same.

    So the same as the current 3* ddq node, correct? That would be a nice choice on the chance we don't need that cover, thanks!

    What is the progression level going to be for PVE event's reward token? 2 times current top progression? 3x? 4x? 5x?
    Depends largely on the PVE. 2x progression in some is simple, really hard in others.

    ummm i have yet to meet any PVE that 2x progression was not doable.. I will admit this good way to force people who dont want to play PVE to play..

    This token is given out in every PVE

    am i really interested not really. then again 4 months ago i could not see deadpool lasting so maybe in 4 months i will be intersted.

    I do see major problems with this though. So this is coming a pay to win. those who can get 10k in season or 1300 or whatever in PVP gets a token. Meaning if they get lucky and can stockpile the 5 stars they can then just walk on the smaller fries in PVP...

    PVP is going to have to change and change super fast i mean Whats the point in playing PVP in 2 to 3 months when your going to be facing nothing but max out 4 stars.

    maybe make 2 PVPS one where nothing higher then a 3 star can be used and another one where you can use up to 5 stars . Sorry but if in a few months the PVP turns into nothing but max out 4 star teams Im done with PVP.

    unless there are new PVP and PVE features ( nothing higher in 3 stars can be used) i can see this becoming a major problem in a few months..

    Just think someone new comes into this game in DEC before they would only have to put up with people with max 2 and 3 stars and a few covers in 4 stars... Now they will face MAX 4 stars and 5 stars sorry but that is going to scare a lot of people away very very quicly

    might as well Kill rewards for PVE i mean fight fight fight fight for 4 star for days and maybe get lucky and win, or just fight to progession and get the 4 star from the pack.. Somthing makes me think this is the start of the end of rewards in PVE

    again maybe after i start playing it i will love it but how it sounds its going to crush the newbies
