Ghost Rider - worth chasing?

CalnexinCalnexin Posts: 1,068 Chairperson of the Boards
With Gambit going to classics, I've now missed the boat on PvP for the indeterminate future.

In the immediate future, I'm going to want to roster Ghost Rider 5*.  Not having that essential would mean I lose the option at that 3 extra CP/day during his rotations for the next 3-4 months.  The question is, should I try for more?  The early opinions I read seemed to think he was going to be pretty good.  Not meta-changing good, but solid.  If I were to keep pulling to try to cover him, I would most likely cover Archangel in the process.  Thor is looking more and more like a lost cause.

My rough plan is to pull latest until I get one GR cover, and then hoard until the Gambit meta changes.  Since a champed Archangel is likely to have a negative impact, if anything, on my PvP experience, I'm inclined to sit on resources rather than try.  It could be a long time before it becomes worth pulling, though, and it might be best to save those resources for whenever Gambit becomes available in HfH or a special store (assuming continued dominance).

What do you think?  Should I keep at it and try to cover GR?  Switch to classic pulls and hope for some gambit BH luck?  Hold resources until a new killer triad surfaces?

    I think it's too early to tell until more people have him and get comfortable with him.  On paper he's not wowing me, but other characters have looked meh on paper and turned out to be great.  I'm waiting for the jury to find a verdict before I decide if he's worth chasing.

    It's not like you have to decide right now. Ghostie will be waiting for you for however long it takes to release three more 5-stars.

    I'm in almost the same boat. Zero Ghost Rider covers, and literally the only incentive I have to try for him is the 5* essential node. Taking 48-hr subs and boss events into account, that's around an extra 80CP a month. The place where I differ is that my GladiaThor is champed, and Gambit at 5/3/5. Archie is at 3/2/2.

    I have 3 paths for consideration:

    1) pull until I get one Ghosty cover, because I can't be bothered about him otherwise (sorry Ghost Rider fans)
    2) wait and see who's the next 5* before making a decision. If the next 5* is good, that'll only be a month without GR. I can deal with missing out on ~80CP.
    3) Keep my CP untouched for any of those special 5* stores. Not sure if they're gonna do such a store for Black Panther's movie release, and they could have something like that planned tor Infinity War. EDIT: Well it looks like we're getting Civil War before Ghosty is a 5* essential. I'll wait and see if CW has any special 5* stores.
    I'm any one of B4CONMAGIC, BL4CKH4M, Eld_the_preth, just_a_genius, KicksthatKick, lokivsleah, pyromantic, too_many_pants, WannaBSkrull, or WhatFlappinYo

    Agreed. Thor is solid, Archangel... seems less than impressive. You see Thor all over PvP, but very rarely any Archangels.

    As for Ghost Rider, it is unfortunate he has countdown based Powers in a meta where Gambit exists. If they nerf Gambit again, Ghost Rider may become a bit more viable. He doesn't look bad, just a bit clunky and very vulnerable to Gambit...

    That makes the most sense, until something changes.  I wish I could pull as many Thor as I have AA in the last month, but I highly doubt RNG will favor me in that way.

    Time to start the hoard.
