So BP is suddenly great. This buff couldn't come at a better time. With the upcoming nerf to C.Mags, even if the final version gives only 3 tiles (which I believe was the idea), BP will most likely replace Patch in my team as Strike tile generator. His black was always great and good black abilities aren't that common. Now he also has a good yellow. With many other heroes offering a good green/red set of abilities, all that's left is finding a good purple/blue set.
Spiderman sucks, as will probably C.Mags after the nerf, OBW has too low health to be a frequent member of our team if we want to play more than 2 matches, Falcon is a niche hero with 0 offensive capabilities and a very slow purple, Daredevil is somewhat viable after the buff to his purple if you like gambling, so the only obvious choice is Fury who is awesome, but requires a ton of HP to level. I bet Fury will become the hero who brings in the most revenue in the future, if he isn't already considering he was fully released 10 days ago.
Falcon's not a bad option - with all the potential strike and defence tiles lying around Inspiration could be pretty damn handy.
Has anyone else ever noticed that sometimes, when using BO's yellow when you have 12 team up or more that you not only get the three boosted strike tiles but also the three normal ones. It doesn't seem to happen every time, but more than once I've used his yellow just one time and noticed I had six strike tiles on the board, half boosted half not. I'm not complaining, I love it when it happens, but I'm wondering if there's a reason this is happening that I'm missing.
I'm curious what teams people are running with the upgraded Black Panther. I'm running BP with Classic Mags, but am interested in other combos. Any combos working well for you?
I'm also curious thoughts on if the developers had some key synergies in mind when buffing BP's yellow, particularly with the strike tile boost with 12 TU. At first, it might appear there was an intended synergy with Mohawk Storm in that she can gather TU before the strike tiles, but it appears uneconomical given that both powers need yellow. Any thoughts on what might have been the intention, if any?
I'm going to recommend Ragnarok for Average Synergy. I feel that any ability which causes board shake up is a good opportunity to collect incidental AP - particularly Team Ups - and that let's you focus on getting yellow + black AP. Rag does also come with a nice enough chunk of hit points. (Yes, he only has two abilities. Yes, he has weird tile strengths.)
I guess the same argument can be made for Hulk, who has even more HP, normal tile strengths and can at least be positioned to tank black occasionally.
Doom -> Black conflicts.
