    Dang. Nearly 15,000 in Red ISO rewards for those who climb up that ladder high enough. Good on you, d3, for finally opening the gates for RISO rewards.

    When does Galactus start?
  • Moon RoachMoon Roach Posts: 2,862 Chairperson of the Boards
    It's always noon on Thursday New York time.  Which makes it 4, 5 or 6 am Friday for me, depending on which of us has daylight savings time.

    Round 678 5*

    This is where we should be. 
    They're not going to give everyone one 5-star cover guaranteed, much less three of them. Since the dawn of 5-star essential nodes in PvE 'getting that one cover' is driving a lot of vault sales. They're not going cut that revenue stream off by handing them out for nothing.
    Agreed but 3 special 5* store for 678 is where we should me IMO.  Also we should have SCLs in boss events and that could be the SCL9 prizes.

    Ok, so just to confirm, this means that Ghost will be the featured 4 star for the event after Galactus, right?

    Yes, Ghost and Hood should be essential characters in the next Story event, which should start on Sunday and be four Days long.
    Cool. Galactus' rewards will fully cover my Ghost, and get my Wiccan to 3/4/2, leaving only Dazzler, Nebula, and Emma Frost sparsely covered. I'm dreading the next Shield Training event because I just know one of them (probably Nebula, my worst covered at 0/2/4) will be one of the 4Es :disappointed:

    Nebula will enter tokens with Dazzler so it won't be either of them. If they went with a newer 4* it would probably be Valkyrie.

    Why are prizes still so trash in these events? Big nothingburgers unrptil round 5 are not doing it for me anymore.

    Round 1 event token

    Round 2 heroic 10 pack

    Round 345 4*

    Round 678 5*

    This is where we should be. 

    Because rewards need to appeal to all levels of players, not just the elite. My son is a two-star player building his Three-star roster in a casual open Alliance, and he loves the boss events for giving him easy access to more threestar covers. They can't finish the later rounds anyway, but they get rewards appropriate for the level where they can finish the boss.

    Hoping my Alliance can keep up our recent good record in Boss Events as 3 Ghost covers would be great and get mine up to a 4/2/3 spread.

    It’s okay. Just delete your posts and we’ll pretend they never existed. :wink:

    Oh awesome we can delete posts again. I've missed that

    The problem is that the rewards don't appeal to the elite in the first place. We need a tweak to the high end of bosses, even if we leave the lower rewards as they are for advancing players/alliances.

    Maybe a Round 9/10? Give the people that finish boss events on Friday night something to do for the rest of the weekend, and rewards worth pursuing. (might need further tinkering, as simply adding new rounds would increase complaints of side node scaling and the limited node rewards for the boss itself)

    @Brigby, I know we had the debate about whether these rewards are random or supposed to go in order before, but if they're supposed to be in order it's not happening. Just got 500 iso as the reward for beating Galactus the second time on lvl3.
  • StevO-JStevO-J Posts: 682 Critical Contributor
    Yep, came to report the same as the post above from Richyyy. Can't say I was surprised to find out the rewards were not changed at all, but it seems odd that it was displayed in the manner it was in the event preview. 

    Anyway, nothing changed... at least it is not randomised rewards... (seriously, it isn't right?) so I guess we got that going for us.

    I just re-ordered them to match how it's displayed in-game. As for how they're rewarded, I'm afraid I'm unaware if there is a pattern or not.

    so what's your go to team? 
    playing MEH, coulson and switch - pretty sure they carry me through round 7, not sure about 8
  • Moon RoachMoon Roach Posts: 2,862 Chairperson of the Boards
    MEH, America, 4* Fist.  Boosted fist's black does over 40k damage.

    Yes this and I didn't even bother to change out MEH Hulk and America for the side nodes.

    Okoye + Medusa + Chavez. Whether I'm matching color or team-up tiles, I'm gonna get him either way.

    I've been using Okoye, Medusa, and R4G, but America Chavez may be the better third.

    Also with nothing much else to do on the train ride this morning I used Hawkguy, SWitch, and OBW against a Round 6 Galactus and they worked as well as I remembered.

    SWitch helps generate Purple for OBW and/or Hawkguy, OBW uses Purple to steal Galactus' AP and Blue to delay his countdown tiles, Hawkguy generates Blue and Purple when you match the countdown tiles, and uses Purple for his nuke.

    Hmm. Now that I think about it, thanks to OBW's Aggressive Recon and Hawkguy's "No Good News", you end up with so much AP that SWitch may not actually be necessary. You could probably replace her with America Chavez and take down Galactus that way. It may not be as quick as Okoye, Medusa, and America, but for those in the 3*/4* game it could be a good team.

    I'm running 5*Thanos/MEHulk/Grocket. (all champed)
    In R3 I downed Galactus without even making a match, just the opening cascade from MEH was enough.
    This is my first Boss event with champed 5*s. Feeder nodes have been simple so far, we shall see what happens with the next flip when the crazy roster scaling kicks in.

    Round 7 opens but boss node doesn't unlock. I wasn't even involved in the battle that unlocked the round.

    This is really tiresome. This was meant to be fixed
