    @Brigby you have rocket and Groot in versus 2 events in a row.  I believe sworded affair is Gamora not Rocket and Groot.

    The date of the event is also the same as the R&G one.....copypasta strikes again.

    I see that the rewards for our new PVE are going to be Spider-Gwen covers.  I wish I was surprised to see the next in the line of "Longest Ago Rewarded 4's" coming up.  Chin up though, we should next get some more Magik covers next January, Talos next February, and Thanos next March if my back-of-the envelope calculations are correct.

    Ugggh. Haven't nabbed a Hela cover yet before she's required. RNG gods have determined I need more God Doom in my roster, but not giving me his Blue cover. I'll have two pulls in CP before the end of the Peggy PVE and start of the next, but I don't have high hopes for that happening with my current pull rate and having just nabbed another God Doom cover in the last two pulls.

    An avengers v Thanos event and yet only Iron Man is powered up... these should at least try to be matches for the story... don’t you think??

    And Luke Cage, Thor, and Hawkeye. But yeah, having an Avenger (other than yellow Wolverine) featured would be thematic.

    It's real snotty to make Hela the required 5 star for an entirely "new" pve event. 
  • bluewolfbluewolf Posts: 3,418 Chairperson of the Boards
    I was thinking at first, "Hela isn't that hard to get".  But I hoarded 160 pulls for her to enter tokens, not an option for everyone, and she only entered tokens 10 days ago.

    It certainly would have been nicer for the first run of the new event to not require the newest 5....

    Quite the celebration.

    @Brigby
    The Thanos and Foes vault closes in 13 hours...or as Slice 5 ends.  Normally the event vault is open for 24 hours after Slice 5 closes, which allows players the opportunity to use their earned tokens (alliance rewards and/or sub end) in the vault which they have been pulling from during the event.

    This time around, all Slice 5 sub rewards, and alliance rewards, which include "Thanos and Foes" tokens will be pulling from a post-event store, and not the vault, which will be closed.

    I assume it is too late to change the vault close time....but certainly something to keep an eye on in the future.

    What, you're not excited by this totally original Pve that offers the same old rewards as any other pve, lol.

    I do have to thank the devs though. They've really driven home the point that I shouldn't invest my money into the game anymore. Gotta thank them for that.

    For the Cosmic Chaos PVE, did they fix the wave nodes this time?

    Sworded Affairs and Half-Inch Hero both have Vulture as placement reward. Is that true?

    Looks like we need to wait for the 20 year celebration to get something exciting in game.  Had my hopes up a little that they had learned and would add something exciting and new. 

    Unfortunately all we get are 2 characters as per regular release schedule, 1 overdue feeder, a new standard PVE and a trivial daily node.

    For long term players there's nothing here to encourage us that there's any innovation on the horizon.

    Okay, so what do you want? Because several times we've gotten innovation (Boss Rush, Fight for Wakanda, Supports, Raids, all of which tried something new), reactions have been pretty negative.

    We need some middle ground. We can't function like an old married couple where we say "Surprise us" and then say "not that" every time the devs try.

    Telling them that nothing is exciting or new enough to be satisfying is useless if you don't clarify what *could* be considered exciting or satisfying.

    Fight laid out some awesome plans he had.  I am surprised you even brought up Boss Rush, that was a disaster with them saying that didn’t test it besides a base level. 

    Fight for Wakanda, loved that event.  The issue some people had is the tiles that were to be neutral were not.  The devs pulled the event and didn’t bring it back.  

    Supports, this was to be the big to do for Infinity War...we know how that went.  When we had the Support Circuit, we had more opportunities to get supports which was the biggest issue.  Now that the pulled that event, we sit here waiting.

    Raid events, great concept but not get execution.  Again, some liked it because it was a non timed PVE event that the whole ally could do BUT if 1 person messed up, the whole ally would lose rewards.  

    Many people have given ideas here, Line or Discord but anytime we say, “Man I wish we had more”, we are cast as negative or an old married couple.  Maybe us vets should just realize that the game we love, invested way too much money into and way to much time is what we are playing now with not much more than that. Maybe our expectations and hopes are too high.

    I would argue there's been a load of productive comments on all the innovation (not least of Rocketts summary above) that seem to amount to naught when the next event rolls around with the same flaws that have been discussed ad nauseam.  This is the frustration. 

    We were promised they were listening and the Endgame celebration would be amazing.  It's not.
