Deadpool Vs MPQ: Best PvE event?

RBwilliams07RBwilliams07 Age Unconfirmed Posts: 31 Just Dropped In

I think they should keep doing their PvE's like the Deadpool Vs MPQ event. You get two days to do each clear but are still able to get the same amount of CPs. I am loving not having to rush at night to get the node cleared before time runs out and casually clean it up the next day to get my 10 CP and 4* cover. It makes it easier to get the 4* cover as well which I think would help with the vaulting. Any thoughts?

    Double the iso and alliance rewards, and yeah, give me more.

    Noooo...

    For hardcore PVE players 48 hours subs are bad, it gives more rewards when it finishes, sure, but you lost all the Iso from the normal clears of a fresh sub, also in the optimal clear after one day you have to be aware of timers and its a bit boring.

    Strange sights by far is the best event, sadly the individual vaults are getting worse every time it comes around.

    God, no.

    Terrible, terrible event. 48 hour subs are _terrible_ for ISO production.

    Running this after a boss event that was also severely lacking in ISO is trolling.

    Not to mention the Dr. Doom feeder node is some wee feline baby puma.

    At least that's just one node. Meet Rocket and Groot has, what, Three or four of those?

    But yeah, I am obsessive enough to not be a fan of 48 hour subs.

    Nope. Not even close to Strange Days with the gazillion tokens given out. Also what makes it far from the top is that you are constantly fighting board movers in this PvE. That slows down the grind. 
    Only thing marking Strange Days down for me is the "FOOLED YOU!" Doombots area that has annoying Sentries and the Hand node that has that nasty Kingpin feeder 4* required node.

    Other than that, yeah it's my favourite PvE due to the major token give away.

    My second favourite is Prodigal Sun. Especially now they've readjusted the rewards. Barely a Dark Avenger to be seen the whole time.

    Honourable mention goes to Simulator. Used to be the one I hated most when it had an Easy and Hard sub event. Now it's fun because of the same reason as Prodigal Sun. No endless grinding of Dark Avengers.

    I would say DP vs MPQ is my second favorite after Strange Sights.  I wish more events had 48 hour subs.  The lower rewards are a slight bummer, but the devs could fix that by modifying the rewards.  Playing hardcore PvE is so draining, 48 hour subs are a nice break.

    Yeah, Deadpool vs MPQ is great for the more casual players (including me) not chasing placement or in a huge iso deficit, but less so for the more competitive ones...which includes much of the forum.   I agree that Strange Sights is my favorite, but Deadpool is a top 5 for me.

    It pales in comparison to Strange Sights.

    It gives out more Iso to me than Heroics, because I can't play another dang Heroic w/ their flood of DAs.  So yeah, DP v MPQ is high on the list, but they need to fix 48 hrs sub resources for it to be truly in the running.

    And THEN Meet Rocket & Groot, which has a 48 hour sub itself. Then we get these new Guardians events like they're supposed to be new and exciting, but they aren't throwing out enough extra ISO to make up for what's "lost" during the 48 hour subs and the Boss event.

    It doesn't, this time.

    It only runs for 3 days.

    I'm torn.

    As far as the break from the constant grind is concerned, I really like DPvsMPQ. However, as others have mentioned, it's an obstacle in the eternal race for ISO.

    I guess I'll have to revert to my old position: This game requires way too much tiny-kitty-playing-with-a-ball-of-wool  time.

    Well. How about that. Glad to not have another 48 hour sub event (I assume, at least), but this is the kind of change I wish they'd tell us about before it goes live in the game.

    Hey @Brigby, could you ping the devs and hook us up with a list of what changed?

    That first day royally sucks, it's easily among my 3 most despised single sub events of the game. And yeah the break is nice, but it depends when it exactly it comes. When I see DP vs. MPQ after several long weeks of grinding on a daily basis, then yes, I most definitely appreciate the break of 48-hour subs. But when it comes on the heels of a boss event that starved me of ISO when I'm currently trying to champ 2 4-stars before covers expire, I wasn't exactly thrilled.

    Not only that, we get a new 3-star character, so your chances at pulling him from the vault are limited because you earn 2 days less worth of tokens. With a 4 day event in CL8, you can potentially earn 12 tokens with a t100 alliance. In the 4 days this event runs, you'll get 6  :/

    EDIT: And this time around the tokens didn't even work right! They're giving people post-event tokens with the odds of the last run of this event, so no Star Lord.  :|

    No honourable mention for the Gauntlet? Although its rewards could definitely do with significant tweaking

    I don't mind the 2-day subs every now and again as it's a nice, forced break--but I don't like the tinykitty all-hero teams they put in the required 4* node (SL/KK/Vision and Carnage/DocOck/Ultron). Although Carnage pretty much sucks now...

    I gotta vote for Strange Sights, as I don't enjoy fighting tile-movers. It isn't a puzzle if more than one entity is moving tiles. RNG is already affecting my strategy, tile movers make the game much more tactical, which is a difference I don't love.

    I liked Strange Sights back when the mini vaults gave out HP.

    The
     update hit when I was doing my end grind. Carnage is back to nasty mode.
