    Thank you for following through with the promise to feature only characters in tokens as required for SHIELD Training. It's very much appreciated. 

    Is there any way it could start when Prodigal Sun does? If it starts when FFW starts, which will apparently be four days this time, I suspect SHIELD Training will be over before we're able to get any Shuri covers from progression in that event, which could limit how much of the training we're able to complete. 

    Didn't something similar happen with America? 
    Yes, but this time you can get the Shuri cover from Shield Training with just Classic characters.  That’s the most useful reward in the event for most players.  The bottom row is there for highest-end players and/or spenders.  I don’t begrudge the devs at all for making that row hard to complete or ending the event before we will get the Shuri covers in progression. 

    I heartily applaud this adjustment to the requirements in regards to essentials and how accessible they are.  Anyone who wants a 10 cover Shuri for the next Shield Training should consider saving up Heroics now.....although it’s likely a month away.

    I love when we get a 7-day event for a new character's first Featured run! Interested in seeing just how the changes in FfW work out, too.

    I need a bit of luck to be able to get any of the Required characters for Shield Training up to 209, tho.

    Many beautiful surprises from the team! Awesome! Where did you guys see the 7 days event? I can't see any unless you are referring to Prodigal Sun, which doesn't state that it is a 7-day event. 

    I see 3* Starlord as the prize again. I think it could be the last 1 or 2 months ago that 3* Starlord was the top 3* reward in PvP? Not sure If I regret selling all his covers the last time I got him. At least Gamora is the next essential PvP character, after Shuri's.

    Prodigal Sun, The Hulk, Enemy of the State and ISO-8 Brotherhood are 7-day events

    Excellent move to make Shield Training require classic characters, as opposed to brand new releases.
    Looking forward to getting nearly full progress. 
    Also, as others have stated the 7 day event rewarding 2 covers for progress is fantastic.

    What's the level requirement again for the second row of the 4* essentials in shield training? Got all 3, but none champed.
  • jameshjamesh Posts: 1,321 Chairperson of the Boards
    The second row requires level 94, and third requires level 209.

    I'm missing one Jean Grey cover and a few hundred thousand iso to complete this one.  I'll probably have to settle for the iso progression rewards on this one unless I get a lucky cover pull.  Presumably the H4H store will offer Jean Grey's first cover, which I've already got five of.

    Not sure if I'm happier that Shuri looks really fun and that I should have her about halfway done after Prodigal Son or that my very, very sad three cover War Machine, that hasn't gotten a cover in probably 9+ months, will get a few more soon.

    Both Beast and 3* Angel offer Jean Grey covers as champion rewards. Is that an option for you to get the cover you need?

    Also, a whole week of boosted Thanos could get... interesting. :) Good thing I have plenty of self healers to bring along.

    Beast is at 214 and Angel at 193.  Both characters give a purple Jean Grey cover at level 223, so not much help there either.  I hadn't noticed that they were both giving out covers in the same order :(

    Hi Everyone,

    We are aware that Elektra (Assassin)'s level is set at 100, instead of 145. There was unfortunately an issue with how the Power-Up levels were being applied to Weekly and Event Power-Up characters. This will be addressed in future runs of Versus Events.

    We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Oh no, it's Prodigal Sun. These seven day events can be exhausting.

    They fight us here
    They fight us there
    Dark Avengers, everywhere.

    Can you swap Shuri progression reward in Prodigal Sun from Red to Green?

    t-thanks...

    That is strange, that the lowest placement reward in Wakanda, the Progression reward in PVP, and then the Progression Reward in Prodigal Sun don't result in a 1/1/1 as they have in the past, but a 1/0/3. Does that put Shuri at the 3rd node in the next Shield Training to stack that many on 1 color? Are they doing us a soft-favor here?

    The level cap for a 1/0/3 is 111, which only gets you to the second node there. You need 10 covers to get to the third.

    It does get you to the third node in her Solo Training, tho.

    I doubt they thought it about that.. they likely picked colors out of a hat.

    Good thing solo training will be long over by the time that reward drops...
