    I remember last time I ran this event, when IM brought out his legion it was demoralizing and almost game over for me.  This time, it's like pfft, no worries.

    Round 8, IM started out with 2 match 5* and crits/cascades took out 2 of my characters.  I don't think I've ever lost a match after one turn.  Totally demoralizing.  Then I decided next go around to punch him in the face repeatedly with Hobofist.  I feel much better now...

    Peggy is doing a great job of keeping IM from bringing out his drones at all for me.

    Same here. And if they do manage to come out I stun the two drones with her Blue and keep pounding away at real IM.

    I'm rocking 3*Fist, 3*Cage, and Peggy for now (Round 6 for us).

    Oh, I didn't think about that . . . I think you've just outlined my strategy for round 8 when it refreshes.

    getting in my usual SCALING ON THE UNLOCK NODES SUCKS!!!!!! post in.
    even though I know they have no intention to fix the fact that the unlock nodes are harder/ more time consuming than the boss.

    Please introduce SCL or just leave the unlocks trivial. I don't want to grind forever on unlocks every 8 hours,

    Anyone else find it ridiculous that Team Iron Man gets a 2* node (Ares)?  At least the nodes that could be considered 2* on Team Cap have variants that are 3* or better...

    Hmm, seems like there's an obvious answer to this problem...

    I'm not minding the nodes so much this time (apart from the insane scaling) because I get to try out a few different teams.

    I do laugh at some of the node planning in these events cause its quite obvious the devs dont pay attention to them. I mean, carrying Ares into a wave node with 5* scaling. Yep, makes sense.

    I suggested this a couple months ago.... no more Ares nodes.  Too bad they didn’t implement that.

    Who cares.
    It makes about as much sense as 3* PVP.
    Ares doesn't tank any colours, he might as well not be there.

    I've tried different teams, and the end result of not bringing Thor/Gambit into the node is pretty much the same - Dead.  My side nodes are LVL 426-433 right now (We're in Round 7, and Iron Man is only LVL 401) The only characters I've got that are above that level are 5-star Widow, Thor and Strange (all champed).  Gambit is 4/2/4 at LVL 405, so he's close, but not quite there yet.  He's still the most useful character, if only because of his AP drain.

    If any of the enemy tile movers fire off one of their abilities, it's usually enough damage to take out Strange; LVL 433 4-star Cyclops is a BEAST!  5-Star Widow is very slow, and she can only fire off her black if I bring Gambit along.  I tried Hobo Fist/Power Man, in the Human Torch side node, but a Unibeam for 23K took out Hobo Fist without Iron Man breaking a sweat.  Other teams have met with similar results...

    The scaling seems to be way worse than previous Boss events, although this is the first time I've had a champed 5-star for Civil War.

    @Brigby was 4* Black Widow (Infinity War) not being boosted on iron man side just an oversight or was there another reason for it? Been using her on the BW required nodes even though she's not boosted just for the utility of her yellow so I figured I'd ask.

    So the next refresh has placed the wave nodes on Ares and Angel. I haven't tried the Ares wave yet but my Angel died in the first wave staring at 415 level characters. Its comical how badly they mess these events up. How are these characters meant to cope against scaling like that? Might as well just go in with 2 instead of 3 from the start. 

    EDIT: Ares 9K health. Cap America, who he's up against, 51K health. Yeah, good luck buddy!

    You could always do the wave nodes on the other side,  Winter Soldier, Punisher 3 star

    If you look at the character pages, 2 & 3 BW are Team Iron Man, and 4 & 5 BW are Team Cap.  She’s really working that double agent thing!

    Phoenix in wave 1. Note to self, she comes back to life.

    Kill her last in her wave. If there are still 3 opponents when the cd resolves then she has no spot to return to.

    Riri and Marv4l helped my ares get through. He just kind of sat there stunned at how it was two versus six in the two rounds of waves. He was useless. 

    On the other sub against Phoenix, Beast and Silver Surfer - I think it was big Pun. Used Mockingbird and IM40. Fired three rounds of bombshells and a few blue and green mixed in there.
