    I know its not new, but i have just got Worthy Cap strong enough to try him out in as the 3rd in a coul/hawk team, and it is fantastic! The only problem i have found, is that it is quite slow, as you spend SO long waiting for countdowns to resolve. Massive fun though

    Vs this team I love running Kitty, 4* Gamora, Bishop. Just do not match a kitty color on turn one. If you get blue for your first match it's easy sailing. Slap gamoras stun on worthy asap. Wait for the 2nd stunned opponent to wake up and stun someone again with gamora. Now all 3 are stunned and kitty is boosting specials. It's so easy.

    I have found peggy replacing coulson throws a wrench in it a bit by making gamora more expensive but it's still winnable.

    I like Miles, IW Spidey,  and 2099 against the Hawkeye, worthy cap teams.  Two stuns, two nukes, and invisibility.  You chip away at whomever until you can stun cap or one-shot him.

    For those with usuable Rescue,  try her with bishop against gritty teams.  5 blue for rescue is a must.  Match away half the strike tiles and steal the other half.  Bring the third of your choice  to compliment Bishop and Rescue.  I've used this team a few times in pick two pvp.

    I’ve found that Doctor Strange is indeed the cure for HawkCap for those that have him. Bishop/Strange will easily take them out (while leaving out an annoying defensive team), but Bishop isn’t really needed.

    It’s when they have a good third to pair with (Sim) that the duo becomes a problem (unlike Bishop who is a problem pretty much everywhere).

    Question for the group: I'm loving 4* Black Panther and Shuri together. Other than 4* Juggy who else makes a good 3rd partner?

    Magik is a excellent partner, since she creates protect tiles AND fortifies them, helping BP with the damage boost from protect tiles, and helping shuri maintain her AP cost reduction/increase.

    Flaptain, Okoye, whoever this new 5* is going to be, 4* Lord (the AP Discount stacks), Peggy (the AP tax stacks and her expensive powers get cheaper), 5* Hawkeye, Emma Frost (I mean, she does, but why bother?), C4ge, Rescue, modok, but the true hero between those two is Main Event Hulk. Get Gamma Power Bomb down to affordable levels, then create a ton of critical s that ideally land on empty fortifications and blow up twice. You’ll think the math is bugged.

    IM40 and Wasp might be good. Wasp to flip those tiles to finish your opponents.
  • ThaRoadWarriorThaRoadWarrior Posts: 4,436 Chairperson of the Boards
    You don’t even need to flip them. Just match them. 2* Bullseye is even pretty good. The real trick is jump starting either one of them. I find I tend to get P4nther’s blue off first usually.

    I've been running 5torm/5* Bobby in this IM40 pvp. Once you get all that green/blue in the bank from Recharge, and you flood the board with icicles and icemans, it's pretty much game over. Iceman's blue tiles even out-pace circuit breaker most times, giving your recharge tiles a chance to do something.

    Apologies if this team has already been posted...

    I’ve been having fun with God Emperor Doom, Prof X (Chuck), and 5 Iceman.

    Good coverage, complimentary power sets, all characters you want to get rid of quickly. Iceman blue does the stunning obviously, nukes from Doom as well as healing, Damage reduction and match 4 slams with ProfX. 

    The team is pretty much self sustaining. The different options on ProfX purple really come in handy in this particular combo as well. 

    I’m not as good at describing what makes the team work together as well as some others, just give it a try if you have them all at usable levels.

    Disclosure: My GED is 477, Iceman is 464, Prof is 454. I don’t know if this would be as effective if the level distribution is different. I’m also on heavy pain meds from a recent surgery, so please excuse my rambling.

    BRB, Bishop, 2* Bullseye - BRB & Bulls make protects, Bish makes blue, BRB hits hard for 6 blue and the countdown makes more protects, which Bish turns into more blue - it is a beautiful cycle.  And BRB and Bishop are like half covered... can't wait to see them maxed!

    I concur the above combo of Prof-X and Iceman but I have not tried Doom. I use Kitty so you have three X-men that benefits from each other. I was lucky with the shard rain so I could champ both Iceman, Prof-X and Doom. Will try Doom too.

    I have been having fun using Mysterio while he is boosted with Thor and Okoye, as mysterio uses all the leftover blue and purple that thor doesnt destroy to fuel himself, and helps feel okoye’s yellow. Plus, okoye boosts the trap tile matches on blue, of which youll be getting a lot
  • Wonko33Wonko33 Posts: 930 Critical Contributor
    Okoye- spidey99. I like that okoye will tank yellow and black so spider does his damage boosted by okoye but you don’t lose team-up tiles. They are pretty fast in pve if you don’t want to use thanos.

    I haven’t tried with Kitty, I’ll have to give that a shot as well. Lots of retal wins with the previous mentioned combo...I think people expect them to be easier than they are. Maybe not “Meta” but close.

    With Kitty I guess you want to get some special tiles out using ProfX purple early on? I’ve tried 5Storm in that third spot and she just doesn’t work as well as Doom.

    Not my team, but I haven’t been able to counter it effectively. 

    Worthy Cap, 4* Carol, Grocket.

    Carol and Grocket are Max champed. I get maybe two turns against this team.

    They are 3 4* teams. Use 3 4*s or weaker to counter them so the match damage doesn't irritate Cap. Or, bring BSSM, with Hela, DD or SL to steal the strike tiles. We can even bring Moonstone. Bishop is useful too. There are a lot of counter teams, depending on how we want to set up our defensive team.

    Yeah, with Kitty you want to use Prof's ability to make Attack tiles (use his purple and select black). Her actives are also helpful, depending on who you're up against. In PvE, I have Lockheed Supporting her, which helps significantly, since he adds one Protect tile per X-Man on the team at the start of the match. With a full team of X-Men, Kitty only needs two friendly Specials to buff them, so as long as at least one of them is an offensive tile, it gets scary pretty quickly. Team-Ups that add Strikes are also handy, since no one on that team* can do so natively.
    I might be misreading here. I'm thinking the pick-3 team of Chuck/5torm/Kitty. In pick-2, the Featured Character may well be able to add Strikes to help out.
