Supports are here! What are you doing with them?

The Supports update when live on Google Play today so I'm sitting here looking at them. I'm wondering if anyone has leveled any supports or attached them to any characters yet?

    Nothing until I get some of higher rank and more Red Iso to get them higher than Level 8.

    Nothing until people who actually play with them report which ones are worth investing in.  I have another place to hoard!

    I split the ISO between The Shield and the Blasters Supports, since those 2 are the ones that look promising at the moment. Haven't equipped them yet since I have nothing to use them on. I already completed DDQ and finished my R&G Story Nodes for the day. I guess I will have to wait until tomorrow.

    Yeah, the first 3 ranks of Element Gun would be a good support for Carol.

    I'm still giving them a once-over and picking the brains of alliance members and scouring the forums.

    Basically data-farming.

    They can't be unequipped per se - I asked about this in the Bugs forum.  They can be reassigned to a different character, but not removed entirely.

    Leveled my Blaster Support to 8 to increase chance of attack tile to highest it can go.

    Equipped on 4Gamora so her cheap stun + other powers has chance of attack tile to go with 4Rocket for those battles that Medusa can't join due to required 3rd.

    Works nicely too generating a bunch of extra damage thanks to Rockets strikes, I highly recommend for 4* teams.

    P.S. The shield is also nice because it gives you boost health at the start of battle. So that's extra health on top of what you have so that gets knocked off first. Means that the character most in front can take advantage of some bonus health before dipping into their real health.

    Using wasp with avengers tower and thanos with henchmen right now

    Nothing.
    Really need to see fully leveled ones, because the abilities as shown now are very unexciting.

    Equipped them to 3 characters. Leveled Avengers Tower up to level 8, because that's apparently as far as 500 RIso will stretch. Now they're just.... there, I guess. Can't do anything else with them until we get some means of getting RIso or more Supports. Still haven't seen any of their effects activate (aside from increased health) as the percentages at these levels are very low.

    Overall, first impression is underwhelming.

    As of now I'm not making a big deal over them, I don't consider the effects significant enough at the level they are for me to bank on them having an impact in most my matches. As of now I'm more curious how often we will be getting chances for Red Iso and Support Tokens.

    To be fair, these are level 1-8 out of 250 potential levels.  Of course they'll be underwhelming at these low levels.  I'd certainly like to see them fully powered so I have an idea of which ones I want to chase.

    Thanos got the hydra homies...Thor’s operating out of the tower...Daredevil has guns now...and old man Logan is rocking a vintage shield (but he’s probably not happy about it).

    I figure there’s no reason to put them on characters I don’t use...so they go to 5-stars for now.

    I put henchmen on vulture, but I am guessing it does not work to fortify countdown tiles, or I just have not been able to activate it yet.

    But that's exactly the point.  Let's say one of these originally four turns out to be super useful and the other three are garbage.  Wouldn't you rather than saved your riso until that was known rather than waste it now throwing it blindly in the dark and gaining little for it?  I don't imagine getting them to L250 is going to be quick or easy...

    I wish they were equipable to 1* & 2* - I feel the early levels would actually be useful on them for DPD. 

    As it is they are attached to 5s I use, somewhat at random and will be entirely forgotten until more stuff comes along.

    I'm uh... planning on waiting until the weekend to potentially trigger the hell out of myself to test them out (I had to stop playing because all the flashes were triggering dizziness due to silent migraines, which I've been getting under control). Or at least thinking about doing that. It's soooooo tempting.

    Nothing until we get numbers on levels and ranks.

    Hoarding like everything else.. I need to see what other players do with them before I start investing into them. Plus I know as soon as I level a Support, a really crazy meta-defining one will be released
