    I want to try 3* Bullseye, 3* Magneto and 4* Carnage just to trigger all the fun from Bullseye. I know most ppl only bother with 5 or 4 star characters but for those of still slogging through 3* we got to find our fun somehow.

    I'd also love to find a regular rotation for 4* Moon Knight but the most I can find is putting him with 3* Dr. Strange and some combo of Cage/IF.

    He works quite well with Peggy and IM40. Recharge generates a lot of red, blue and green ap for them both. Fire peggy’s Blue, then her red to hit the non-stunned character, and when he is down, throw the moon silver blades to take down one of the stunned, and let the countdowns take care of the other

    I’ve paired him with IM40 and Hawk-Guy, if you’re looking at purely 3* pairs.  Hawk-Guy takes getting used to if you don’t play him much (stagger your first two arrows so you stun and damage different characters, especially if you can kill one with explosive arrows, fire Moon Knights green just before the stun arrow resolves so it doesn’t target a stunned opponent, etc), but he’s a solid blue user who also had a decent purple even at 3 covers and if you wisely use both his and Moon Knight’s black you have two true healers.  In PVE, they work well against the Dark Avengers, as Daken and Bullseye give you a lot of free AP though Hawk-Guy’s Black, especially at 5 covers.

    Miles, scarlet witch and mysterio is working for me in pvp. just keep matching pinky purple to 14 then miles can nuke or you can have some stun fun if you have enough red and blue. Also helps that mysterio can help add to purple with his yellow.

    I like him with Vulture & Cloak & Dagger. C&D help get Vulture Airbourne who then starts generating black, blue and green, MK can oneshot people with his green but can also take some damage and then use his black to KO and heal, likewise C&D can switch to generating yellow and healing also and of course Vulchy is airbourne but is left free for all the blue Hybrid tech attacks each time you re-send him up. Only colour missing is red.

    Appreciate the suggestions for Moonie. I know playing characters you actually like from the comics isn't the best strategy but I want to use the guy. I've only been playing for a couple months or so but I have all 2* on farm, all 3* characters and working on the 4*. I need more fun rotations besides Cage/IF/Dr. Strange/IM40 and RHULK and Vulture.

    Man, there are a lot of good Anti-Gritty teams out there these days that I haven't batted an eye playing against any Gritty teams I find in PVP. I have to commend the people playing XForce Deadpool, Bishop and Peggy Carter in Simulator, though. That team is a brutal team on defense if you don't think about the team you're bringing into the match...

    Moonie plays quite nicely with Cloak & Dagger as a pair if you have them. They only conflict on black but I would use MKs for preference. Both have true heals, MKs black is fed by C&D to keep him topped off and they have a good balance of chip damage, AOE (circumstances permitting) and nukes.

    You could do a LOT worse than Moon Knight for playing a favorite character (I've personally used Devil Dino & Squirrel Girl to a wholly unreasonably level).  He's slow, but hits like a truck.  He even has solid animations, if you have those on.  Basically MK/IM40 + anyone with a good blue and/or purple makes a viable enough team normally, and a legitimately viable team when MK is boosted.  I suggested Hawk-Guy because I find him very fun and reasonably effective, but in 3* land Dr Strange, Dr Doom or even Mystique (re-spec to 5/5/3) are viable partners and that's just characters giving active abilities on all colors off the top of my head.  Depending on your 3* levels, a boosted 2* Widow also helps feed the MK/IM40 engine quite well, particularly against goons.  Unless you're hyper-competitive and that keeps you going, you have to have some fun to keep up with this game, IMO.

    I have C&D but only 1 star in their yellow and purple powers currently. I don't know if you can check people's rosters out through the boards but I'm Falconfreak on the JustForKicks alliance.

    My three favorite Marvel characters are Moon Knight, Taskmaster and Black Panther. I have no idea how you get Taskmaster since I can't set him as a bonus and in the 2-3 months I've played he's never shown up in an event.

    I have 3* champs so far: Cage, IF, IM40, Dr. Strange, Cyclops, Black Panther, Daredevil, Rocket/Groot, Starlord, Magneto, Bullseye, Thor and there might be a couple more. I have 3* Hawkguy with 13/13 but not enough iso to champ him. For 4* none are champed but I have Vulture, Rhulk, Moonie as above 200. I have all 3* characters and working towards all 4*.

    Bullseye and Magneto stand a very good chance of being the 3E in a PvP event.

    Even if you're a 4 or 5-star player, I was recently finally able to verify that clearing the seed nodes in a PvP event just with 3* characters will pair you against players with 3-star rosters. If you clear the seeds and only see 4* & 5* teams, ignore them and wait, because for the most part you will only be open to be attacked by players with 3-star rosters. Once you get attacked by those 3* players you can then retaliate with your 3* team.

    I did this successfully in Mysterio's event up to ~16 wins, then I started to get hit by a few 5* players. For the most part they were under-covered or under-leveled 5*s, but at that point I decided retaliation is part of the game, so I retaliated with my Champion Thor & Okoye, and that was it. My MMR was shot to hell and I was back in the 5-star game.

    Next time Bullseye or Magneto are the Essential for a PvP event, I'll try this "trick" again then give your team a shot :smile:

    Taskmaster is a Limited character introduced last anniversary in early October. Since then, I can think of mayyyyybe one or two opportunities we've had to earn a cover for him. He'll likely be a Limited in the vein of Devil Dinosaur, where we'll get the opportunity to earn covers around anniversary each year, but that's it. 
  • bluewolfbluewolf Posts: 3,318 Chairperson of the Boards
    The official word on Taskmaster around the time he was released is that yeah, you can only get his covers at Anniversary.  There was also a bundle of his covers that they offered last year which might show up again in October; otherwise he'll probably be in the Anniversary vault or some other special vault at that time.

    I also love Taskmaster as a character and would love to use him in the game more, but the sad fact is that Limited characters are basically never boosted (except maybe for their PVP) and as a new player, you should definitely be a bit wary of using a lot of resources chasing him when his utility in the game will be very low in general.  You'll likely not need him in PVE (maybe once a year, maybe never) and he will have a Crash at Anniversary (probably) along with a PVP.

    I like using Bishop with lesser used characters that can utilize the blue he generates. Doc Ock was fun. Only thing you have to avoid is getting your Bishop 1-shot. I'm looking at you, Jessica.

    Based on your roster, 3* Magneto is a solid third for MK/IM40, although MK will tank 3 colors and possibly team ups which can be dangerous.   Daredevil is another possibility, as the recurring blue stun is devastating after Moon Knight drops one character and a flood of Ambushes thanks to Recharge can possibly drop a second with kicks to the face.  Both of those teams are extremely reliant on IM40 for acceleration, though, which is why I mentioned Hawkguy originally.

    I am working on champing 3* Hawkeye now to work with both MK and carnage/bullseye.
  • AXP_ismeAXP_isme Posts: 580 Critical Contributor
    You could give MK, ghost, IM40 (3/5/5) a go or sub in any of the other yellow and blue 3*s you have champed - magneto, panther...

    Ghost would be good in this scenario because she would tank most colours in that scenario.

    Moon Knight (5/3/5)
    Black P4nther (5/3/5 or 3/5/5)
    Nico Minoru (5/3/5 or 3/5/5)

    Used to have a lot of fun with this team before I jumped into 5-land. Rainbow team with actives on all 6 colors, and plenty of fun to be had with special tiles, passives, and nukes. The reason I consider Nico and T'Challa's blue/yellows interchangeable is because I feel it is based on your roster. Remember - Nico's blue can only be used after she takes a hit. My MK is Lv. 304 and Nico/T'Challa are both Lv. 303. Normally in this scenario the only color Nico would tank is blue, but since I have a Kimoyo Beads support on T'Challa, Nico remains hidden in the back the entire match unless I catch an AOE. So in my case, I run Nico's yellow at 5 and T'Challa's blue at 5 for max damage should I be forced to match one of my protects (T'Challa doesn't need the tiles to be fortified to trigger his passive). 

    That said, even if its not incredibly fast the team runs like a well-oiled machine once you get it going. Ideally MK's passive will be one that generates special tiles on black/green matches, but even if not, BP and Nico can generate plenty as well. The put out some pretty decently strong protect tiles for cheap, and you'll likely be able to fire BP's yellow anyway to generate additional strikes and attack tiles. All the while Nico is strengthening tiles in the background, so even if you have trouble gathering the AP for the nukes you're still building both a strong passive attack and defense in the meantime that will eventually do the work for you.
