          I don't see how the red can do more than about 1000 damage and still be balanced. All you need is two successful reds to beat basically any red ability in the game, and it's just not that hard to deposit in a corner, and it can still remove any tile in the game too.

          Come on Phantron.... do you ever go anywhere without bringing the nerf bat with you? I'd love to see his red at max. I remember Heroic juggs spending 15 min in a fight as u red slapped goons for less than 500 damage at a time. Now Cap can be useful outside of pve. Frankly I prefer D3p going the power creep method.

          Thanks for the information! Looks like what we have now is adamantium slash ad nauseum, which is pretty exciting.

          Max level blue protect is 291 (IceIX leaked this a while back).

          Interpolating from Colognoisseur's data, max red will be around 3450 and max yellow around 280.

                The only thing I'm not sure of is lvl 5 yellow as I won't go above lvl 3.
                Everything else is what I go off my screen as I leveled.

                Welp, the daily Phantron complaint is here early it seems.
              • Phantron's endless campaigning is always eyerolling.


                Anyways, if you just think of Cap's red as 'slow rolling' AOE attack, it's not overpowered at all. It's susceptible to termination/stun and takes quite a few rounds to fully deliver.

                Gold Cap: All you need is 3 turns to beat basically any red ability in game.

                If your going to make arguments like that...

                Gold Thor Red: All you need is good placement on your yellows to beat basically any red ability in the game.
                Patch: All you need is color control to beat basically any red ability in game.
                Mags: All you need is cascades to beat basically any red ability in game.
                Punisher: All you need is 230 event npcs to beat basically any red ability in game.
                DareDevil: All you need is an idiot opponent to beat basically any red ability in game.

                Likely builds gents?

                I'd imagine a 3/5/5 is the way to go?

                Someone has to go lv4 yellow FOR SCIENCE! (after all until then we are only assuming....Maybe Ice will show up and let us know...)

                That's what I'm on my way towards, yellow is still too expensive.
              • For some odd comparison notes:

                Matching up by tile damage as some sort of vague equivalent (ie both Caps doing same tile damage at their respective levels)

                2* Cap at Level 55, 3/5/5, doing respectively 88, 400, (2 turn stun)

                Cap 3* at Level 60, 2/3/3, doing respectively 95, 996, (2 turn stun) + 82

                Yeah, I like what I see. THIS is more like Captain America who has taken down the Hulk, Thor, and giant space robots.

                WAH-HOOO, baby - WAH-HOOO!

                I was thinking the new cap might be as useless as the last one but that red damage is actually very impressive. I'm actually sad now that I did not get top 50 finish in the simulator.
              • It's a shame there is so much tile damage overlap, I really would like to try an IM40/Lazy Cap/Hood combo. I think your looking at a lot of variability in the types of abilities you can use.

                First of all I have to say its impressive how half of theppl scream nerf and the other half screams bag... There is no good it seems lol

                As for the Captain... I have to say I like him. I always liked the idea behind his skills and with the new dmg and protect strength he seems fun to play.

                I'm pretty sure this was exactly what the devs thought when they designed 2* Cap's red, and you can see how that turned out.
              • Ok, people, this captain worth the ISO. (Though he would be way more fun with yellow getting a limited AP discount for every protect tile the team controls).

                I wonder when we can obtain more covers -- or the "gold" will mean only supply from tokens and direct buy? That would be pretty sad really.

                Agreed, this Cap pretty much addresses the issues of the 2* version, except yellow, but now we actually have a decent damaging red on him, and the extra strength tile bonus of blue, helps offset the huge cost of the yellow, so while he is essential your standard 2 good abilties, 1 not so good, I'm happy with this guy and his color combo works well plus, while there is an overabundane at red, at least if properly placed, you can hide your red from AP theft, wait for the return and then unleash, IMO this guy is going to go perfect with Gold Thor and once he gets going, new Cap will be nice in those PvE's with all those dang CD tiles

                Just took him for a spin in the PvP for three matches against three opponents with 3Xlvl141 teams. Teamed him with Thor and BP. There are no Cap tiles on the board when all three are active which allows him to hide and accumulate red and blue. In all three matches once I got the train running I cut down the other team pretty efficiently including one with both Hulk and IM40 and had them both under dual shield perma stun by the end and just fired Thor's green and yellow with a bit of Panther Rage.
                After using him I will wait patiently to win the last two covers to take him to 3/5/5 and lvl141 used appropriately he can be the solution if Spidey's stun get's nerfed.
                If you can find me in matchmaking take a shot and see how the AI plays him. I'm guessing poorly because it should prioritize Thor's red over Cap's red.
