Twice now my Alliance has unlocked a new round without the boss nodes unlocking for me. Anyone else have this issue?
Also remember that you can destroy Ock's reactor tile even while his tentacles are still out. You can't match it, but you can use powers to destroy it at any time.
Vulture is the MVP for this event. His blue can destroy Venom's invisibility tiles and Doc Ock's tentacles and reactor tile when fired from his black. Pair with Rogue just in case things go south - she can punch out the reactor with her red, and also blunts Sandman's yellow match damage. Finally, bring Patch along - throw out Berserker Rage whenever you can, Vulture will clean up the enemy strike tiles easily, and when Vulture goes airborne Patch tanks everything and his red becomes a near-OHKO for most of the bosses.
First fight Sandman feels like the hardest boss in all of MPQ.
Any round where doc Ock wasn't the last enemy, he was the MVP of my team. I'd erase his four tiles with Gambit purple, then using the main countdown tile as a timer for building up my AP. When I was ready just erase the tile again, and let Chavez take him down.Full AP in everything else and the last One or two SS have zero chance.
Rogue is awesome against Sandman because she shuts down his yellow AP generation, too. No pesky AOE damage to deal with. I ran C&D, Vulture, Rogue just now, no problemo.
