    SCL9 still rewards tokens instead of iso in Strange Sights. Joined slice 1 and did Door 1, since I don’t have Archangel and don’t care this event.

    @Brigby  It is great that BFF’s boost list is being updated. Could you perhaps suggest that 4* Iron Fist be added as well?  I assume it can’t be changed this time, but perhaps in the future.  Thank you!

    And if Cloak and Dagger gets boosted, why not give 4* Rocket and Groot the same treatment? It would be hilarious to run 4 characters in a two-character tournament...

    Or maybe not... I can use the threestar version for the same effect I suppose.

    I think it's more likely there's going to be a stand alone Cloak and stand alone Dagger at some point in the future and they referenced characters not in the game.  It wouldn't be the first time they've spoiled upcoming characters like that.  It makes no sense for C&D or R&G in any of their current incarnations to be boosted for this event.

    Would have been nice if they included the whole list.  Can't remember if C4ge is boosted, but both him and IF need to be.

    I found a list Brigby posted Before last run in September, I assume it is still accurate aside from the updates:

    As of right this moment, this is what the Buffed list looks like for Best Friends Forever:

    4-Star: Gwenpool, Howard the Duck, Kate Bishop, Kingpin, Luke Cage (Power Man), Miles Morales, Professor X, Spider-Woman, The Thing, War Machine, Winter Soldier
    3-Star: Beast, Bullseye (Classic), Captain Marvel (Modern), Colossus, Daredevil (Man Without Fear), Iron Fist (Immortal Weapon), Kamala Khan, Rocket & Groot (Most Wanted)

    I believe this upcoming week will be the first time with 3 champed 4*s in the one week (Gwenpool, Riri and Wasp)

    seems like those 3 have all the colours covered too, nice

    Hearts of Darkness - 4 Day Variant (1/11/18) *New Update*

    Featured Characters
    5-Star: Doctor Strange (Sorcerer Supreme)
    4-Star: Deadpool (Uncanny X-Force)
    3-Star: Beast
    2-Star: Storm (Classic)

    I wish this was a week later.  I am currently on resupply day 1450 and I can see that day 1459 has a yellow Doctor Strange (Sorcerer Supreme).  That extra yellow would certainly make a big difference for a boosted Doctor Strange.

    Oh well at least I will have the 5* for this one.

    :s Glares at Archangel.....

    Man, an HoD new release. I’m going to have to think hard about which scl with that one 5E node.  Thanks for the update!

    Strange Sights now, 5trange boosted next.. missed opportunity?
  • justsingjustsing Posts: 392 Mover and Shaker
    I love when Riri and Gwenpool are boosted together :)

    Any season changes like character re-balances are posted in a “xxx season updates” announcement post.  Usually the day before season starts.

    that 'll be a good thing if they could pursue in the updates to 4 star champion rewards

    Dr 5trange essential in a new release... one of the few fivestars I don't have any covers for.

    On the other hand, I am not sure I mind being locked out of the Inhumans node.

    Does anyone know what goons/minions are featured in the next PvE, Hearts of Darkness? I saw a post in Sept? stating that it was the group of musclemen minions. Does the enemies type remain the same regardless of which month that particular PvE is held?

    The reason why I'm asking is because currently I'm playing SCL5 and it takes me around 1.30hr-2 hr to clear the first 4 nodes. I would like to give SCL6 a try but I don't have Doctor Strange. If it's going to be the Mindless One minion, I think I will stick with CL5. I still remember how it decimated my teams back when I was using only 2* and tried playing in CL4. Currently, I'm using 2* Magneto and SW(166) to clear the nodes in SCL 5. Any advice for this newbie if it's safe for me to try SCL6? I'm aware that the max level of the enemies would be 220.
  • HoundofShadowHoundofShadow Posts: 2,552 Chairperson of the Boards
    Thank you OJSP. I think I will give SCL 6 a try for the next event.

    Although they did announce the System Reboot event ahead of time for Nick Fury/Psylocke: just with the featured characters missing.

    Just go CL6, you'll blast through it top 10 in 15 minutes / day.

    I'd miss out on the Alliance reward cover for the new character though. I'll probably do my best in SCL 9, top 50 is still doable there with a bit of dedication.

    S.H.I.E.L.D. Training - ??? (1/11/18) *New Update*
    Required Characters: ???, America Chavez, The Thing, Ant-Man
    Oh joy, still charging through with these I see.  At least I have both Thing and Ant-Man this time, last two they've managed to pick at least one of the few vintage I didn't have champed.  Ugh I hate these events such wasted potential.

     I'll need to toss some ISO at Ant-Man to get him to 209.

    I think I'm up to 42 4* champs now, and I swear they're looking at my roster and picking at least one 4* I don't have either champed or leveled up. I'm not sure they've run one yet where I've had both 4*s champed or at least at 209.
