    That clue can mean only one thing: Dazzler confirmed!   :D
    Beat me to it. 

    And glory hallelujah that we can turn off the auto switch to the enemy AP bars.

    'GG reduces all countdown tiles instead of 64 by 1 turn' 
    Is that really an issue? Are people with 65 countdown tiles on a regular basis overjoyed now?It feels like a solution to a problem that isnt really there. But just my 2 cents.

    According to one of the developers, the change was just because people were confused by the jump from 4 to 64 (because it's not immediately obvious that the board is 64 tiles). This was purely a text change, and didn't change behavior, as it's just easier to say "all" at level 5.

    I have to say I will be happy to stop the display switching to the enemy powers every turn  :)

    It's 8x8=64 tiles, so it's not even possible to have more than 64 countdown tiles on the field. Everything else is OK.

    Yeah... players have said that since his character PREVIEW!

    I thought Countdown To What fired when he was stunned regardless?

    @Brigby


    love the changes on the UI to disable tray switching.  Is it possible to have the same thing done so that the app counter is always present?  Currently I have to reactivate it in every match.  A toggle or having the game remeber the last state would be ideal.

    Same here. I know it works when he's airborn as I was dealing with that recently in balance of power. DP getting stunned or airborn after firing that power is actually a good thing. Medusa's countdown works the same way, as far as I know.

    Huh. This news comes shortly after getting a 14th cover for my 13 cover Goblin, along with the reminder that Thor’s repeater tile gets repeatedly matched away. Maybe new priority?

    Also, pretty sure the clue has to do with Happy Hogan being added next.

    @Brigby Is there any hope to see that "fortify repeater" improvement made on Hawkeye as well?

    There's been a bug for a while now where in some situations the tiles didn't fire when he was stunned. Thanks for the fix!

    Wouldn't it have been better to have announced Shuri before the Fight for Wakanda PVE, so that she could actually take part? It would have made the event seem a lot less barren.

    Honestly, I think they specifically made Goblin fortify repeaters because of Hawkeye. 5* Hawkeye is the much better character and his presence really kind of made Goblin obsolete.  Giving Goblin the ability to fortify repeater tiles makes him a hair better.  Hawkeye doesn't need it particularly.
