Simulator SR to SCL Needs Adjustment
I normally play SCL 6 or 7 for PVE events. When I don’t have the 4* essential, I play SCL 5 when I want Top 50 rewards.
I dropped down to SCL 4 for Simulator because I find it to be the hardest PVE story to play, regardless of whether I have all the essential characters or not.
I know I’ve said it a few times on the forum that SR to SCL needs to be readjusted. However, I think it needs repeating, particularly in regards to Simulator event. Here’s why.
On SCL 4, the “enemies” are at level 125 in 3* essential node. My Modern Captain Marvel is boosted to 291 with her health at 17, 860. I ran her with Star-Lord (Peter Quill), boosted to 281 and health of 15,603 and Hawkguy, boosted to 274 with health of 15,188.
In 3* essential, second day mini event, you battle SWitch, CStorm, and IW Spidey. IW Spidey did, and I am not exaggerating, 10,000 damage all at once to Star Lord when he fired off his proportional punch. I survived because of how high Star Lord is boosted. I was so shocked when I saw a level 125 “enemy” doing that kind of damage. That is something I see on SCL 6/7 and not SCL 4. If I was at the SR that first allows entry (SR 15, I think) to SCL 4, I would not have survived and I would not be able to complete the nodes. I most likely would not be able to finish the event.
Allow me to explain from a different angle.
When I don’t have 4* essential character, I have rarely dropped down to SCL 4. I placed between Top 20 to 30 if I play optimally. I don’t have Dazzler, so I am not playing those nodes for this particularly Simulator event.
I placed Top 10 for the first mini event. Second day, when I was done with my clears, I saw my ranking. I was eighth overall and ninth for the mini-event. I don’t know about others, but whatever my ranking is when I am done with the first four clears is a really good indicator of what my placement will be for the event/mini-event. Something is clearly off if I am placing that high without having the 4* essential. I have never placed that high when lacking the 4* essential (even for new releases), no matter the SCL I’ve played.
