    The first rule: leave nothing living.

    (That's how I recall it, anyway.  Where'd I put that Elektra graphic novel?)

    A three star every 6 months I can take, just. They are no use except a roster slot. People in 3 star land don't need the dilution and 4 star and above they are about as relevant as one stars, hell you will use the one stars more often. 

    It it just feels to me they don't know where to go next, how many 4 stars is the end game, so they are just filling up roster slots while trying to work out how they move the game forward.

    So, 4* Elektra with Gamora's red? 
  • iron-n-wineiron-n-wine Posts: 472 Mover and Shaker
    Lazy Elektra ... Lazektra?
  • TheVultureTheVulture Posts: 347 Mover and Shaker
    I'm interpreting the short forms as meaning she deals immediate damage on her 2nd and 3rd skills, rather than on subsequent triggers - should slight differentiate from 4*.

    I'm guessing this version is more for new player accessibility & popularity, since 4* Elektra has never been well regarded enough to justify a duplicate.

    Hope she wins in the style stakes.  :)

    Best use in 4* land besides required Versus event. 4* feeder..... and other champ rewards.....

    Soooo... basically a copy of the 4* version, yes?

    I'll assume she'll give Elektra covers for champ rewards. I wonder who they will adjust Daredevil to eventually? 
    The lazy daredevil clone they haven't released yet...
  • zodiac339zodiac339 Posts: 1,920 Chairperson of the Boards
    I wonder if this is just the way she was initially designed? It's been said by some people before that Elektra seemed like a 3* that just got a numbers boost to make her a 4*. And maybe they'll make changes to old 4 Elektra to make her worth something.

    Sorry, too many drugs. Need to come down.

    It's not clear that it is the same as Gamora's red: the countdown might just damage the front enemy rather than being specifically targeted.

    Yeah, but then again we get those champ rewards from other 3* covers as well. We'll just get one more flavor of them.

    COME ON!!! Elektra was one of the first 4 stars. More than 2.5 years ago. She was contentious pretty much from that time and although she has had a marginal rework 2 years after her release this new 3 star is basically a copy and paste. Surely something else could have been done with her especially based upon her history in game . I don’t mind if new 3 stars come out. Ill only be using when its essential in some way but it may be a nice bit of new for newer rosters but at least mix it up a little bit. Come on!!

    There are other characters that better fit as an assassin. Gamora is probably the best example. Red to make a good hit on your target and let them bleed out. Blue to take someone out of action. And of course, black for that perfect moment where you can eleminate the target entirely.
    Psylocke, much as people complain, aslo fits better, with 2 quick hitting powers and one poorly implemented cripple (change it to smething more like Bucky's Precision Shot, and let us chose the color the CD goes on. Possibly add "if chosen enemy AP is below 5 AP when it hits zero, stun target for two turns" so if you don't get a good return from stealing, you get a compensating benefit).
    Punisher can eliminate a weakened opponent with red.
    Elektra needs burst damage to be an assassin. Currently she has "You can't hit me!" (which needs a fix on when things happen; that damage shouldn't wait until after a massive cascade uses up the traps and kills her), the original Give and Take (it's so clunky, but addmittedly, the idea feels fitting), and that sloooooooooow damaging trap. It needs a secondary added execution effect. "If there are X Ballet of Death traps on the board, remove all of them to down the target (and steal X AP from all enemy AP pools perhaps?)

    Well let's give them a chance here. Hawkguy turned out to be quite fun and pretty good.
    The description above needs to be vague until the article is released. We could be pleasantly surprised with the details.
    This 3* is sure to be an asset to newer rosters. If you have no use for 3's at this point in the game, then there's no real reason for any negativity in this thread.
    Looking forward to further info!

    Should definitely give a chance but Hawkguy did at least have his fun Full Quiver power, which was something new. Hopefully Elektra will have a twist to her (admittedly) similar sounding powers.

    Another lazy copy of a character in the game, with the exact same powers? You really are getting pathetic now!
  • Tiger_WongTiger_Wong Posts: 380 Mover and Shaker
    Am I the one person who realized that 

    1) she doesn't turn only purple tiles into enemy tiles. 
    2) she doesn't turn only black tiles into trap tiles. 
    3) she deals damage along with creating a cd 

    which all adds up to her not "having the exact same powers" as the 4* Elektra?
  • jameshjamesh Posts: 1,394 Chairperson of the Boards
    We've only got vague descriptions of her powers at this point.  It is possible that some of those restrictions will be in place for the final version.  At this point, only the third power is definitely different.
