    Hi Everyone. There have been some corrections to the rewards list, as well as some more answers to your questions:
    1. The last score of Alliance Rewards is correctly acquired at 5,900,000, not at 9,500,000. I have changed the table to reflect this
    2. The 395,500 for Individual Rewards is now correctly listed as Rocket & Groot, not Hawkeye (Modern). Once I find out what the color is, I will update the image accordingly.
    3. 3* and 5* Thanos are playable
    4. Thanos (Infinity Saga) cannot be sent Airborne.
    5. The colors for the Infinity Gems are as follows:
    • Reality Gem (Yellow)
    • Space Gem (Black)
    • Time Gem (Purple)
    • Power Gem (Red)
    • Mind Gem (Blue)
    • Soul Gem (Green)
  • Infinite Power's countdown tile duration is 3-turns at Rounds 1 through 6, and 4-turns at rounds 7 and 8.
  • Yes. Character abilities can increase the countdown timer of Infinite Power tiles.
  • Wait, what? 

    OK, I *could* increase the duration of the countdown tile that prevents me from affecting the board. But that would be.. uh... counterproductive to say the least. I want that thing gone ASAP, not sticking around for longer. 

    @brigby, can you confirm whether you meant to refer to  the Infinite Power (board locking) tiles, or the Gauntlet (2-turn row destroying) tiles?

    Last Ultron needed 20,720,000 points in total to finish round 8. Thanos needs only 16,885,000 points. Max personal progression 1,200,000 is the same for both events. It can either mean that it will be easier for alliance to finish round 8 (if points per boss fight are approximately the same) or harder to reach personal progression (if Thanos gives less points then Ultron).

    Boss events usually start at noon EST, so about four and a half hours most likely.

    Or this is another 'you're supposed to lose' boss and they know it and wanted it to make it possible for some to reach round 8.

    Thanks! I waited for the "reward preview" thingy in the PVE tab to pop up but it didn't so I took the question here. 
    Timely fashion, just in time for me to get off work.

    Yeah, the start time is pretty good for us CETers. That last sub between 2AM and 4AM though... not so much.

    • Time Gem: Creates a random duplicate non-Purple Infinity Gem
    • Mind Gem: Generate 30 AP of a random color
    • Reality Gem: Give a burst of healing to your entire team, restoring them to full health.
    • Power Gem: Deal a massive amount of damage to Thanos (a little more than third of his max health).
    • Space Gem: Create 2 Critical tiles
    • Soul Gem: Destroy all Green tiles, dealing damage but not generating AP


    SO we dont know what colors each of these gems are?

    Does Thanos have any passive AP generation? Or does his purple depend of the gauntlet going off?

    Yeah, we're still waiting for the preview and it's supposedly less than two hours from start.

    Very uncharacteristic...

    Then I guess Gwenpool's Sploits is not for you. I on the other hand look forward to seeing how useful she will be vs Thanos. Good luck!

    Found this!

    1. The colors for the Infinity Gems are as follows:
    • Reality Gem (Yellow)
    • Space Gem (Black)
    • Time Gem (Purple)
    • Power Gem (Red)
    • Mind Gem (Blue)
    • Soul Gem (Green)"
    Depends on if they use comic colors or movie colors (they are different), however the fact that they call them gems and not stones would seem to indicate comic colors.

    Sploits won't do anything if Thanos purple is out
  • FreelancerFreelancer Posts: 119 Tile Toppler
    Preview is up and Individual rewards require less points than listed here.
  • Rick_OShayRick_OShay Posts: 765 Critical Contributor
    Preview is finally up in-game.

    Sploits is intended to avoid him getting his purple out.

    Gauntlet is single target damage, at least for early rounds. His purple prevents effects from already-laid CDs  (e.g. 2* Mags blue does nothing if Thanos CD gets put down before they expire).

    I think Invisibility will be key for this boss. I used IWs yellow prior to Thanos purple, her insible tile stays on the board. Thanos cannot match tiles so as long as you prevent matching it or it getting destroyed by the Gauntlet tile then it seems winnable at later rounds. Possibly add Prof X for his Invisibility, or even Howard with his million invisible tiles. Elektra or Spiderwoman black could work great too.

    Does anyone have a useable C&D? I wonder how Cloaks black would handle boss Thanos.. would he reduce Thanos' power levels to Round 1?

    @MarkersMake

    I would speculate that if the Infinite Power tile can be increased, then so can the Gauntlet one.
