    Archangel essential for Venom Bomb. So no last hurrah for Gambit I guess
    Called it. 

    And Kate Bishop coming up in placement/progression? She's fully covered for me, but stuck at Level 78. Go figure. Well, looks like I'll have to revise my ISO allocation plan. Again. 
    You never know.  They might make Punisher the progression reward instead.

    Boy, that would be pretty crazy! Who could ever imagine something like that happening?

    Are we getting Weapon Tex-Mex again in PVP after new Panther? 

    Just realized what is up with that. The next PvP will start on Valentine's Day - I bet they are rerunning the special Valentine's Day tournament! You know, the one where Deadpool was the matchmaker/required character.

    I hope MMR is completely broken again there.

    I'd settle for the last iteration, not being able to queue 5* rosters, and not being able to be seen by them.
    I'll go to 1200 again by hitting over matched 4* rosters for single digit points.

    Venom Bomb node gave expired VB token instead of BP AND FRIEND VAULT token. Please fix this for next subs...

    Not first time this is messed up for a combined vault. Please keep a closer eye on this, cause especially on vaults, it surely matters how many you can gather...

    I doubt they’ll fix if for the next subs. Best bet would be just gifting the correct tokens in addition to the wrong ones.

    Cant a guy be optimistic for a change? 

    This was my support ticket.. pretty much the same as last time they ignored it..

    Wonder what caused them to stop giving out the first cover ability in PVP Progression. That was really helpful for establishing the full ability set of a new character, since the game previously only give it to you if you made T10 in the PVE release, or t5 in the PVP release. Guess I'm back to characters starting at 0/2/2 and hoping that RnG shows me some love.

    I was being realistic.  The devs aren't going to fix this on a weekend.  Even if it were a weekday I have never seen them fix a problem with a node (wrong rewards, wrong points, etc) mid event.  There are a number of realistic reasons why this might not happen:
    • I might not be possible to change mid even based on how events are coded.
    • It might be hard to set it correctly to ensure that everyone across 5 different time slices gets the fix the same way.
    As someone who works in IT, if I were in this situation, I would not try and fix it live, it's got potential to break things worse or make people angry if handled wrong a second time.  I would give compensation and fix it before the next run.

    So rather than being replaced by Punisher, it looks like she might be pre-empted by the boss event instead.  That's assuming she's just featured in the event and not actually one of the rewards.

    Wow, the last time she was preempted in progression by Punmax, they promised she would be rewarded in progression in a few months. Looks like she might be getting screwed over again, unless she's an actual reward like you suggest. Has that ever happened in an alliance event though?

    And an alliance event. I gotta admit, I didn't see that one coming. Looks like Gho5t Rider won't be required so soon afterall like I thought he would be.

    @Brigby why do the devs hate Kate Bishop so much?
  • QuebbsterQuebbster Posts: 8,070 Chairperson of the Boards

    Boss battle eh? I hope it's not a new fivestar release, it's way too soon.

    It would be pretty cool if the Team Iron Man side gave 4* Black Panther covers as progression rewards though. It would be thematic, they can use the Team Cap cover as the fourstar essential in the next event (unless they go back to Kate Bishop), and it would give us a chance to cover Black Panther a bit more for Shuri's release next weekend...
