    The required missions,  are they 2/3/4 star or 3/4/5 star?

    They can give 1000 LTs but if we do not know some important details you will never get it.  Point value of each sub is very important to work with your ally’s.

    I am actually impressed at the potential rewards but it's possible that they arent kidding, and deadly nodes will be *deadly* to some players and alliances.  

    Anyone from discord getting more info than we are getting here, willing to share some more details?

    Yes. They will not tell us how many each sub clear is worth so we will not be able to plan.  They want us to “have fun and figure it out”.

    “have fun and figure it out"
    Is that allowed?

    Only complaint I can think to make is this is another Anniversary event with its own vault rather than just keeping with the Anniversary vault. For Taskmaster, there was a good reason, but otherwise, it should just be Anniversary tokens. No complaints on Latest instead of Fan Favorite tokens though.

    oh wow, I liked it when I read it first  but thought the rewards were a bit low, but with Bigby's reply I am impressed ... Avengers Assemble!!!!

    I can’t see any way you can get all the daily rewards. Personal progression maxes out at 40k. Over 4 days that’s 10k per day. Which would give your alliance 200k total. 

    Allowing for 50% above max progression would give your alliance 300k per day. Maybe enough for 2 deadly max progressions but not enough to sweep the board.

    unless we exceed personal progression on the second day and then get disappointed.

    These rewards are extremely generous! The max rewards you could get for the entire event is:

    8 LT, 240 CP, 2525 HP, 127K ISO, 103K RISO and 72 Tokens/covers

    This is unprecedented.

    Also, I would bet that you would need more people to play the Deadly subs than the lower ones in order to get max alliance rewards. So, perhaps you distribute people 1 for easy subs, 3 for medium subs, and 5 for hard subs, which totals 18 people.

    With no point regeneration, finding out isn't that difficult. Send one guy in first to find out how many points a sub yields and allocate people accordingly.
    True, should be possible.

    Couple things would be nice to know though:
    - can a player in normal or hard earn as much points for personal progression, as a player that goes deadly?
    - can a player in normal or hard earn as much from node rewards, as a player that goes deadly?

    Would be kinda rough for those guinea pigs, if that isnt same for all.

    I do think the “have fun and find out” attitude is a nice gimmick, but would have been whole lot nicer if not so last minute. But when it means some of alliance need to take one for the team, thats kinda rough.. Wouldnt be very nice to keep that a secret, so hope you can answer those questions before we go live, thank you. @Brigby

    Rewards look exceptional
     Fair balance for Alliances with mixed Rosters, so there is something for everyone
    That boost list is very friendly
    New Content is always welcome (I still liked Wakanda)


    So please don't take this as a criticism but just kinda deflating for me: I wish Taskmaster was included. Looks like I will have to HfH to get one, but alas Limited.
    and I thought all the anniversary events were supposed to award anniversary vault tokens? but whatevs the sheer amount will surely net something good.
    EDIT: Only PvP Season awards Anniversary Vault

    With what is possibly the most anticipated part of the Anniversary (Sorry Nate) 24 hr advance warning is a little short notice especially since there are so many questions but I know the good ol Forumites will have the real deets soon after going live. So no worries (thats for my commanders) I'm ready to PoP!

    Well if 12420 points is max per player on deadly difficulty, then it has to be 12 players to get 142k points and get LT for one sub. And in this case 20 people is not enough even for clearing 2 deadly subs.

    Interesting.

    I think this event sounds interesting.
    not telling us how much the full clear is worth per person though is stupid.
    You want us to plan with our alliance and we can't without that information.
    and I'm not best friends with everyone that I can talk to daily and easily. Some people I need almost 24 hours in advance to get information to and from because we live on other sides of the world and our timing doesn't work well.
    so the way you are currently doing it when they join they are just going to have to look and hope they choose right without really any talking because you aren't letting me plan right now with them -_-

    The 12420 points is probably not the max. Jen at Demiurge made the following comment in the discord chat earlier "but as with all screenshots we release before an event or character comes out, remember that numbers can sometimes be placeholder, so don't take anything for gospel until you play it."

    I really hope so. But it seems that it will not be possible to get all the prizes twice a day. And that explains the generosity being not that generous at all. :-)

    It'll take 5 min for people to figure out how to minmax this thing once it's launched. It's okay to have a minimum of surprise at a brand new event...
