    Is the time of the X-men vs Apocalypse Store correct?  I'm reading 4h 15m right now.
    I'm wondering if these are supposed to go to the vault, but that doesn't open until noon today.  i don't think they thought through the timing difference.  

    I'm holding mine till noon to see what happens with them.

    Poor Gambit. This boosted list is a tough way to find out you've been kicked out of the X-Men...

    Bobby, too! I guess he was just getting a little TOO creepy, even for them.

    Nightcrawler is not boosted, either. Only partial X-Men love (maybe it's the Blue team? Or Gold? Who can keep them straight?).

    X-23 is listed in the boosted here but she's not in the boosted list on the game preview...is that an error?

    Sorry for the confusion. It would appear that X-23 being on the list was an oversight. I've removed her from the chart.

    Does anyone rememmber Apocalypse health in round 7 and 8? I wonder if Mockingbird will be able to nuke him (My Bombshell does 29k damage).

    I seem to remember like 45K health in round 8, but I could be confusing him with one of the other boss events out there.

    Pretty sure this is right. Apoc has lower health than IM/Cap in Civil War, who had 61k in r8. It also matches Apoc having lower score targets, 900k for the final LT instead of 1.2m or something like that for the others.

    Any suggestions on who to team Mockingbird up with? As my highest level character for this event, I was finding her red continually drained. I did take 3* Cyclops with 5 in Yellow and Quicksilver, but I'm sure there are better team mates

    Try SWitch. Save up purple until you've got enough to double fire Secret Mission (I'm assuming you're past the first couple of rounds here). If necessary, wait until you've got a red match available, double fire Secret Mission, and the make the red match.

    SWitch's green is also nice for getting rid of the Attack tiles to clear out the Pestilence tile.

    cheers will give that a go - we were in Round 3 when I did my clears this morning, hopefully in Round 4 by tonight

    I did try using Switch for one attempt this morning, but I probably should have re-spec'd Bobbi to 5 in purple to get the most out of that strategy. Should also bump Switch to 5 in green instead of purple too

    My favorite teams so far with buffed Bobbi are Vulture+Rogue and Riri+IM40.
    Rogue makes sure the battle goes on long enough that you can clear away all the horsemen countdowns by firing Vulture's blue. He also generates a trickle of red AP.
    IM40 feeds red+purple to Bobbi and blue+green to Riri, who then creates red charged tiles for Bobbi.

    Vulture+Cloak&Dagger goes pretty well.  Vulture's blue and C&D's yellow work well for special tile removal, with Vulture's blue also helping with countdown removal.

    With Mockingbird your strongest colour is red, and Vulture will only stop you from going backwards.  Mockingbird's purple can help hit the threshold, especially with a few regular red matches.

    I use this team now as well, works really good. Might replace C&D for Rogue in later rounds for damage reduction and use power siphon to battery Vultures black tho.

    My son's team was Patch, 3-star Cyclops, and Nightcrawler (his highest covered 4-star at 5/2/4)  Nightcrawler went BAMF-inite in two straight rounds.  If you activate Cyclops's yellow before BAMFing, you'll likely get a LOT of red to power up either of the other two characters.  Or just keep gaining purple and BAMFing all over the place until you kill him off.  Too bad Nightcrawler's not boosted, though.

    The team I was using was XFW, XFDeadpool, and Cloak and Dagger.  Green is the team's most powerful color (why???), but you really only care about purple and black.

    I have been using Coulson, Scarlet Witch, and 5* Hawkeye. Haven't lost yet or had any real trouble.

    as the unlock nodes start to ramp up I will post my usual, The unlock nodes eventually becoming harder than the boss is just stupid.
    please make it so that unlock nodes are either tied to SCL (with better prizes for those playing on higher SCL) or leave them trivial :/

    you only punish the smaller weaker alliances by making the unlock harder even though the boss already will be a pain for them :/

    Been using Clagger, Bobbi, and XFW.  I have a pretty decent roster, but I've had a few characters killed due to the instakill countdowns until I started running this team.  XFW solves all that with surgical strike and since Clagger also puts out black; ss can take Apocalypse down pretty easily (for now at least...)
