    Thanks for the post! It looks like the 4* boosted list for next week is missing a character. Possibly Thor? Also, the 3* list has one more member than normal.
  • wymtimewymtime Posts: 3,060 Chairperson of the Boards
    Thanks if you can get the DPDQ and crash updated I would appreciate it.

    Thanks
  • killerkoalakillerkoala Posts: 1,185 Chairperson of the Boards
    i'm thinking daken should be in 4* row.
  • stochasticismstochasticism Posts: 1,181 Chairperson of the Boards
    i'm thinking daken should be in 4* row.

    None of the 3* listed have 4* variants as of right now.

    Perhaps you should also include the upcoming Deadpool Daily list over here too as the November updates are no longer stickied.

    As to the boosted list, Isn't 3* Daken boosted for the 2nd consecutive week? Has something like that happened before?

    happy to see Heart of Darkness there, are there going to be Mindless Ones goons now that they've been introduced to MPQ gameplay?

    my only boosted 4 star.png is PX, he's going to be my tank? icon_e_sad.gif

    lol i was thinking x-23 was daken, since he gives her cover when championing

    *(11/28/16) Brigby - Added Deadpool's Dailies, and Versus events from the end of November

    We pull these sneak peeks from a shared Events Planner between D3 Go! and Demiurge.

    Edit: It seems I'm not as good at deciphering debug names than I used to be. icon_e_confused.gif I've now adjusted the Weekly Buff to display the correct character line-up

    They had an opportunity to make a 4-star Daken for X-Men Apocalypse. Teased powers at the time made me think, "Daken, Horseman of Death?" Instead, we got Kate Bishop. Totally fit post-Heat Daken with no healing, but the ability to wreck the healing of others, plus had the "make strike tiles then consume strike tiles for big damage" mechanic of the Dakens we have. But, you know, Fox vs Marvel and all that.

    Brigby,
    I wanted to let you know I like the extra red comments showing what you updated. It makes it easier to see what is new since the last time you updated it and stands out. Those little things are appreciated so thanks.

    6 boosted 3* seems high for a week. Isn't it usually 5? Good first step in taking over the sneak peak posts though, they're always super helpful!
  • MPQ_DaywalkerMPQ_Daywalker Posts: 383 Mover and Shaker
    I expect the weekly buff list to be corrected to the following:

    (12/01/16 - 12/07/16)
    4* - Thor, Moon Knight, Professor X, Quake
    3* - Iron Fist, Gamora, Doctor Octopus, Captain Marvel, Black Widow (Grey Suit)
    2* - Storm (Classic), Thor (Marvel NOW!)
    1* - Juggernaut, Spider-Man (Original)

    4* Thor is due to be buffed (last buffed week beginning 9/15, with Ant-Man, X-23 (both buffed this week), and Moon Knight. 3* Daken is currently buffed for the week of 11/24 - 11/30, so he shouldn't be on this list.

    next week has some great boosts. thor, quake, and moonknight all are really good boosted and can all be used with im40. boosted gsbw after this week's boosted witch means 2 consecutive weeks of big boy winfinite with champed px. those mean pve won't be horrible. and gamora and fist boosted same week gives me a combo I always liked of them with hood. if I only had a moonie.

    edit: just realized HoD was next. hate that one with a passion. booo. lol

    I dunno, boosted Ant-Man, SWitch, and Strang3 (even not-fully-covered) have been pretty fantastic for PvE... haven't broken the Angels out once.

    It does look like a fairly solid boost week again, though.

    You're absolutely right. My mistake. I've gone ahead and updated the character list to reflect the correct lineup.

    Why is 4 Thor buffed again? I could've sworn she was boosted just recently.

    Devine champions wasn't a weekly buffed but an event specific buff because she is a goddess

    See what happens when you're more focused on grinding MPQ than doing your work.. the addiction is already starting to harm your life.

    Be careful young Brigby, don't let the forces of MPQ consume you icon_lol.gif

    Debug names? Sounds very interesting and an insight as to how the developers view the characters. Tell us more!
