    For new releases, the tokens can only be redeemed in the Comic Store. Next time hod runs again without new releases, you will see your stockpiled tokens again.
      Ah!  I understand.  Thanks for the info, much appreciated.  :)

    Hmmm.  I’m realizing that the Dazzler PVP starts Sunday, but no one will get any of her covers from PVE until Monday. And Alliance covers very early Tuesday (EDT).

    And lots of people run loaners in new character PVP, but some like to try to build their own up as high as possible for the event, hoping for an advantage.

    I suppose this is why most new release PVEs are 3 days.  Too bad they don’t ever change the PVP schedule at all.

    There's really no point in using a brand new 4* in its debut pvp. You're going to have to be defending it all the time because it's not going to be much stronger than the loaner anyway. So you would just end up using more health packs especially considering that Dazzler is low health and has no health regeneration ability. Save your sanity, and health packs, and just use the loaner.

    This has been an absolutely obnoxious week for me and boosted 4* characters. Hulkbuster in HOD at least but really nobody in PvP.  Horrible slog.

    The problem with using loaners for 5* players is Thanos.  It might not be much of a difference, but 5 matches to down the loaner and trigger Court Death vs 10 matches to down a partially levelled featured 4* could speed up shield hops and make matches long enough to slow down the hits.
    Ahh ok yeah that makes sense for 5* players.

    Let’s see, 7-day. 4/4/5 schedule should mean a 5* release, which should mean a boss. Then 2 events with old 5s followed by Loki, then Wasp for 4* release (I think), then the new 5 enters packs. Cross fingers for Okoye getting a last essential as she leaves Latest, but running through Hulk with a 455 boosted to 560 sounds like a sweet week. Bring on the boosted crits Ms. Chavez!

    They FINALLY give us a 7 Day event again......... and it's the very worst one.


    That's what we get for asking, I guess.

    Why is it the worst?

    Why is it the worst?
    Basically wall-to-wall Dark Avengers, if I remember correctly. There may be some goons sprinkled in throughout, but I think just about every node has at least one DA.

    Yep, 7 days of Dark Avengers.

    Why is it the worst?
    It's full of the same old Dark Avengers, 3* Hulk, and Juggernaut. That means their health is scaled super high compared to other boosted enemies in events. It takes so much time to kill each enemy and it gets super annoying. Also there are no extra tokens given in the missions themselves for the event vault or store. Unlike the most awesome 7-Day event "Enemy Of The State", which gives you 2 to 3 event tokens every day. Every 7-Day event is good except the Hulk one, but I don't mind doing it since it shows that the Devs are going back to the usual format and giving us those types of events again.

    Thanks for the explanation everyone. 7 days of Dark Avengers do sound terrible. I believe Enemy of the State has wave nodes? Or are they keeping the best 7 days PvE for Anniversary?  B)
