    The Rank 5 perk makes me feel as if more Young Avengers are on the way, and in the form of actual playable characters. So yeah. I suppose there's that.  :|

    They are already here as playable characters. We already have Kate Bishop, America Chavez, and Wiccan. They are all Young Avengers.

    I  heard that a lot of players don't like 7 day story events. I personally like 7 day story events.

    The odds of getting Hulkling is 1+3/(26+3)= 4/29 = 13.8% It's slightly lesser than the rate of pulling 5*.  It seems like they have stabilized the offerings for support now.  There's no change(except token and character cover) in the content of the vault and H4H offers. 

    I like the healing perks. Is it going to be true heal or temporary heal?

    The 120 item vault, 4800HP bundle, and 250CP bundles are boring at this point. They would be nicer if we got a couple supports at once, but doing them one at a time with a bundle each time is a little ridiculous.

    Bummer Hulkling is limited to being a support, rad that he's in and works well with Wiccan, with a bonus of working well on a Kate/America/Wiccan team.

    In general I'd like to see more broad supports, rather than specific ones. Like, the point is supposed to be allowing you to micromanage your characters with supports, but we keep getting supports that heavily implore you to pick a single character. This one kinda works because of Wiccan/Hulkling, but I'd rather see perks like the one that works with Young Avengers as the bonus perk, so there's some cool utility using themed teams. Like, a Danger Room or Cerebro support that works with the X-Men would be infinitely cooler than one that only works with Professor X, you know?

    As a side note, we need something like Heroics back, because these supports built for 4* characters are not very exciting when you're using 5* characters all day every day. I realized that even if I got Hulkling and the Red-ISO to use him, I still probably wouldn't. And I want to. Because I'm one of those people that really likes Supports and wants them to succeed.

    And for that matter, we need some guaranteed support tokens (even one beginner token each PVE, even if it's the last reward before the 25CP at the end, and maybe one in the season too, even if it takes 8k points before you earn it). It still feels like we're in demo mode for Supports. I don't expect people to max them immediately, but they've got to be able to acquire them often enough to be able to max them eventually.

    More supports hidden behind a paywall! Just what I was hoping would be announced today. Totally wasn't hoping to hear about a new 5* feeder (we're overdue one at this point) or a sneak peak at upcoming character rebalances or anything. Nope, I was hoping to hear about new paywall supports!

    And of course this announcement means we won't hear about anything else for a while either since d3 seems to be incapable of multi-tasking.

    Supports need to be pvp enables ASAP for people to feel like they "matter"

    The longer you wait the more people are going to feel like they missed out by not chasing "good covers"

    I look forward to continuing to pull duplicate Supports instead of the 20+ Supports I still do not have. How long are we going to be presented with tokens in a Vault and HfH deals before you finally roll them out in rewards for PVP/PVE? The game has been very boring, repetitive and Supports is far from the answer to keep our attention.

    the forum poll a while suggest people don't want them to be in pvp.  I think a lot more people are going to be mad that they have pvp power gated behind RNG

    He looks good, and many of the supports are desirable, but looking at supports is like looking at any luxury item 99.99% of us will never attain.

    If there are a few rich players out there willing to sink enough disposable income into getting a specific support to a usable level, versus say spend that money on a new top of the line computer or an exotic vacation, then I hope they are having fun!

    My opinion on Supports:  "                                                       "

    (Mama always said, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all...)
