    Typically if it doesn't specify an actual name [Spider-Man (Classic) for instance), they are just categories you can use any version in. Also, the required characters are:

    Featured Characters
    4-Star: Rocket & Groot (Awesome Mix Volume 2)
    3-Star: The Hulk (Indestructible)
    2-Star: Steve Rogers (Captain America)

    I hope they found something to make this obvious and easy to select in team selection screen.. have all possible options shown in front of roster perhaps?

    Nope. Not in the past at least

    Brigby why are they still doing the xmen only simulator? With how many different characters there are in the game simulator was one of my favorite events because of how many different teams you get to fight against in it. The last few times it's run though its been the same few xmen mixed into different teams over and over again.
    Any answer to this Brigby? I'd really like to know why they haven't gone back to normal Sim with all the characters in it. I was looking forward to some crazy antics like a match with America Chavez and Vulture or Medusa or someone else who can generate extra ap for the team.
    Hmm good question! I'll pass that along to the team. Once I hear back from them, I'll be sure to provide an update to you all.

    The difficult node for me in Simulator SCL7 is node 6 on day two.  It's Prof X, Rogue, and X-23.  I've found it's always super-important to take Xavier down first, and that's a little harder to do when Rogue keeps jumping in front to protect him.  My best team against this is 3* Dr Strange, Rogue, and 2* Magneto to generate lots more blue.

    Unless something is different about the Galactus event, I suspect that these are Progression Rewards....?  (That is, placement is not a thing in boss Events, normally.)

    Yes, I mean't Progression Rewards. Sorry for the confusion

    Well, cool! Ended up being Ghost Rider anyway. I’d thought Galactus Hungers sounded off for a second 5* Panther. And timing looks like I can wait until he’s in Latest and Kraven is in tokens before making pulls to get Kraven to 209 for SHIELD Training.
    Aw nuts. Just realized that the Boss timing means Gambit is being skipped as essential, doesn’t it? Then that means Story will go
    Sunday: Classic
    Thursday: Classic
    Sunday(Monday?): Gambit (if back on schedule)
    Thursday: Thor for the next character release.
    What’s the forecast, 70% chance of 4* Panther?

    @ThaRoadWarrior

    Thank you. I learned something new.

    Is the Galactus event a normal PvE event or is it similar to the Apocalypse/Sentinel PvE last month? I remembered that the last month's boss event required 5 characters. Then, this event requires only 3.

    The format almost always features 3 specific variants for the side missions, then a rotation of characters where you can choose any version of the given name.

    Brigby mentioned in an other thread that the pve after the boss event will have Gambit as the 5E.  Happy days....

    Yes, he was answering a question I asked in that thread. And yes, happy days. Champed Gambit = SCL9 gets wrecked.

    I can sense a lot of coming upset about 4* R&G getting skipped...  I’m personally stoked about more Nightcrawlers.

    Galactus Hungers - Alliance Event (1/25/18)
    Deadpool Vs. MPQ (1/28/18) *New Update*

    You're killing me, smalls.

    Brigby, tell Demiurge to get with the program and update the event awards for these two already. 

    They did a great job updating 3-day and 4-day events, then 7-day events to bring them all on par with each other, and repeatedly squander that by refusing to complete the process and update boss events and events with 48-hour sub events.

    Relax, arent they just doing what they said they would do? They never said they would update boss event awards or 48h sub events, did they? 
  • QuebbsterQuebbster Posts: 8,070 Chairperson of the Boards

    Do you know how many fourday events there are without any 48 hour subs? Two. Thick as Thieves and Venom Bomb. If the devs tried to abolish 48-hour subs, we would get at least one run of each every month, frequently more.

    It would be great if they could update some of the existing events to actually have 4 subs though, but in the story events it would mean creating new content, so it may be easier said than done. Simulator could easily be expanded to four subs since it has no story, but considering how popular the current run is that may not be a good idea...

    I'm more upset with his progression color being red again... It was already red the first time after he was released, so I expected it to be purple, following the pattern that happened most of the time: middle, first and last cover. Well, I guess boss events mess with color progression every time...
