New lightning rounds?

I didn't see a post on the forum but it seems like there's another set of lightning rounds. I don't know if these are the new ones that IceIX has been alluding to but the icon looks different and there are less missions to choose from (3 instead of 5). Also seems like some characters besides Hood and Doom will be given some love, even though the current one is a Hood tourney.

    Geez, I didn't realize Rag was buffed this tourney...got destroyed by one thinking it would be an easy fight.
  • How do people get up there AND stay up there in rating without getting retaliated 2000+ times?
  • Yeah, the last thing they should have done was buff Ragnarok. He can already easily cascade for 4k points without the buff. Pass.
  • 1300 reached in thor tournament THANK YOU liGHTNING ROUNDS
  • I'm wondering how the "diabolical" token placement reward is going to work out, since those special packs disappear when the tournament ends. At least, based on what I've read here from other users who won them as progression rewards but didn't redeem them in time, they disappear.
  • Dear devs... what the heck were you thinking making +200% during current lightning? Ragnarok - 2 AP - 1,8k dmg... are you really thinking like "what is the worst idea? hey, lets buff those lucky players with Ragnarok so others would just splash from his attacks"

    Don't listen to him. Keep up the great work.
  • Everybody who doesn't have a high level Ragnarok is going to be disappointed for this week's lightning rounds icon_e_biggrin.gif

    In context with what Icex said in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=597 this is kinda funny.
  • +3 All AP with +3 Blue/Purple boosts.

    Make one blue match and then use Widow to freeze Rag for 5 rounds.

    It's not that hard, really.

    You can do this, but then that's 100 ISO cost each time just to have a shot. Depending on your luck with rewards you can very well end up losing ISO over time instead of gaining.

    Using Boosts should be an option, not a requirement

    My 2 nefarious tokens so far have produced classic Hawkeye and model 35 Iron Man.
  • Yeah, pretty sure it's bugged. viewtopic.php?f=9&t=639

    IMO, the way these tournaments play out (where speed matters), boosts ARE already a requirement.

    At worst you will lose 90 ISO (if you win three times and get 70 ISO) but most likely you will only lose 20 ISO every three battles.

    Not really a whole lot of costs when you consider the sizeable advantage it gives you.
  • So ALL FOUR featured villains are boosted 200% during any Lightning Round now?

    Congratulations. Now anyone who doesn't have a leveled villain (and Rag in particular) can pretty much write off winning villains in these, which would presumably be the point of entering one in the first place.

  • loki next, at least no more just doom and hood. presumably magneto and ragnarok afterwards

    I used boosts twice in this last Doom lightning round. Having a lvl 115 Rag is the key to winning.

    If they do have a Rag one, what will be funny is the only people who get them will be the ones that already have a fully leveled Rag.
