    @Brigby, my dude, the people like my guide! Increase the character limit by a lot so I can fix it and get back to maintaining it please? Thanks bro, you're the bestest.
    Is that why it stops at #39? I was wondering if my computer just wouldn't load the whole thing....
    Yep. We're up to like, 43? 44? But the new forum character limit sliced off the end of the post and I haven't been able to fix it.

    This is driving me nuts! I just wanna reeead. Why won't you let me reeeeead?!

    I can't rest until I've read Mostly Accurate assessments of Mr. Fantastic and Agent Venom.

    Spoilers: they aren't that great, although Mr. F is way better than he used to be.

    With Devil Dino and Howard we are at 49

    Well, at least the good ones are at the top? Sorry Venom. Even the post character limit hates you.

    I have to agree with Tile Toppler, I think Invisible Woman is still ranked a little too low (even considering your shift in the 3/27 update).

    With her team-invis, she has also become an extremely effective cure for stun - for 7AP, she can actually wake up the rest of the team and make them invulnerable for a bit. You did not note that in your description, and this is huge.

    Wait, going invisible overrides stun? I didn't even know that. DANG SON U SMRT

    Anyway I'll include it when I finally get around to fixing this. I was given permission to post it as a PDF but my formatting skills are sorely lacking.

    I look forward to your scathing review of Carnage's current build! >:)

    Too late. Carny's getting a buff for next season. Likewise Drax

    This guide certainly helped me with character builds and roster decisions, so I'm really happy to hear that a possible fix for the formatting is coming. Plus I am curious to see what you think of the new characters and rebalances.



    Hi everybody.

    Does text hidden behind spoiler tags not count toward post length? Asking because the Crash of the Titans post seems gigantic and doesn't cut off. Maybe that's not the ideal solution though ... :neutral:

    Good idea, but just tried and it doesn't work. Seems like maybe it had to be spoilered pre-migration or something.

    I can't even edit the current text because apparently what's already there is 40,000 characters beyond the limit. I don't understand it at all.

    Frankly I don't know if I'll ever get around to updating this thing as I'd have to create a new post and then reserve about 15 posts after the first in order to ensure I had enough room - and then if I ever run out again I'll have to start over from scratch again. It's a very irritating state of affairs that could easily be remedied if the character limit was just increased, but @Brigby doesn't want to do it.

    Did he actually tell you he couldn't/didn't want to increase the text limit?!?!

    Yes. The reason cited was "strain on the server."

    Maybe removing the image links would help? Or else just switch it out for a link to a Google Sheet or something, perhaps?

    It's quite irritating that they won't let people fix these posts that actually help with gameplay.

    Well even if that's the official answer, it doesn't mean it was his decision.

    @bigsmooth @Milk Jugz

    As Jarvind mentioned, I unfortunately had to deny the request of increasing the character count due to the potential stress and strain it could place on the server. 

    Having said that though, we currently have the option available for maintainers to upload documents to their posts, that players can then directly view. With this method, maintainers have as much space as they need for their guides (or at least as much as their chosen file format offers)

    Looks like the transition to new forums chopped off a bunch of the 4's from the list. 
  • blahblahyoutooblahblahyoutoo Age Unconfirmed Posts: 12 Just Dropped In
    Wasp should be much higher IMO.
    Stun/damage, cheap special tile amping, AP stealing all in one.

    Yep, I could not find the end of the list either. Please reup.
