There will be two characters receiving a character update this Versus Tournament Season: Carnage (Cletus Kassidy), and Drax (The Destroyer).
The development team had visited Carnage's design during the last season update, however based on the feedback from the community, they wanted to re-visit it to make sure these changes stood out as clear buffs for the character.
A preview of the changes are below:
Symbiote Scythes does single and enemy team damage. If you have less than 10 Red AP, Carnage will do team damage to all other friendly teammates as well.
This power is a Passive power that creates friendly and enemy Attack tiles as long as you have less than 10 Special tiles on the board. Damage for friendly Attack tiles has been increased and damage for enemy Attack tiles has decreased.
Deals damage and destroys enemy Special tiles. Random tiles around the enemy Special tiles are destroyed as well.
Creates a Strike tile that gains additional strength for each friendly Countdown tile on the board (maximum of 5). Also has a Passive component that deals damage whenever a friendly Countdown tile has expired.
Ooh, looks like Carnage / Medusa / Wasp can be resurrected. The Drax changes make Drax / Starlord / Wasp look interesting too.
And still no Spider Man change.
His red is the same as it was prebuff if under 10 red ap. I don't see how that makes him any less of a scarecrow
Agreed. Further, the difference between cost and threshold is only 3 AP (7 to cast, 10 to not hit friendlies) which is a very reasonable gap to bridge. If AI Rhulk can occasionally throw out Mega Claps then AI Carnage can avoid friends.
The return to passive for Instincts is nice. The limit on special tiles seems a bit odd, but I guess it's balanced by the fact that Carnage Rules has reduced cost.
Overall, while these do feel like nice tweaks, there's nothing that stands out as a Kingmaker (or Kingslayer) ability.
Edit: Misread the description for new Alien Instincts, thought it was reactive to enemy ability use AND limit of 10. Rather, it's like a 4* version of Exquisite Technique. Nice.
Carnage I only ever used if I had to and that will probably
stay the same unless people find that him plus others is the new go to team
then Ill jump on the band wagon ofc.
As for Drax. Im in two minds for that. I quite liked the way
he was now. Boosted and with someone who has cheap powers he is really
effective. I was using him against Thanos and he was the go to guys for most of
I have both champed so its not so much of a deal. Will be
good to see numbers.
