    I am curious about the 2750 HP price for the Shuri covers.  Is it a good deal in acknowledgement of dilution making even a few covers of a good character worth less?  Testing the market to see what happens?  I can't imagine the 3600 HfH gets many takers at this point given the extremely long cycle to get all the 4's through (over a year now) and the fairly high likelihood you'd bonus someone and get the cover you want vs needing to wait for the cover offer to cycle around.
    I just looked at my pull-tracking spreadsheet, and spending the 2750hp on 3 shuri covers saved me a month of my life grinding for bonus heroes since I've gotten 3 BH 4*s (for Chavez at the moment) in the last 34 days out of Latest.

    300 CP for a cover and costume.... Only if I can pick the color.

    300CP for a costume is straight bonkers.

    Asking people to use the most precious resource the game has (and which I'm told you can't purchase) to acquire a costume is a bit mean-spirited. I hope that costume is offered another way at some point, but I suspect it won't be.

    300 CP for a costume and a 5* DD cover. I'm getting it. My 4/4/4 Daredevil doesn't even care which color it is.

    If you would consider a purchasing a 250 CP HfH offer for a 5* DD cover then this costume is 'free' if you would also spend the extra 50 CP in the Classic or Latest stores. The reason it's free is because all the pulls are pre-determined so all you are doing is perpetually delaying your opening of 2 tokens in that store. If you would have spent the 50 CP in a special store then yeah, the costume cost you 2 pulls.

    I'll also be getting the 4* Rocket cover in PvP too.

    Keep em coming. I love that many players aren't going to get Daredevil. Just makes mine feel that much more exclusive!

    I love this DD costume, Mine is 0/0/1 and I don’t care, I definitely burn my CP for this one!

    Jeesh make up your mind on how we should earn these costumes! Progression, placement, Coins, Money, free, CP......

    Pick one for crying out loud!

    If they'd put this out when Latest was Doom/Kingpin/Danvers, I almost certainly would have grabbed it. I might still, especially if I can get a purple cover from it, but Hela and Storm are way more of a draw to me than that previous trio was, and while another 12 pulls isn't a huge deal when it comes to chasing 5*, it's certainly not negligible, either.

    It's really not, as a H4H the cover alone would probably cost that, i find it more than reasonable, especially with the bonuses.

    Whitewashing is a term look it up- there is no reverse racism in the term. just stop. I am NOT talking about changing the color of her clothes. to insinuate that above @ waddles is an unnecessary and pointedly weak gotcha.
    It describes a situation in which the skin tone of non-white people – when depicted in magazine covers, advertisements, commercials, music videos, etc. – is, digitally retouched or physically modified to appear whiter. ... Whitewashing has been seen for centuries in the media, through film, photography, advertising, etc.

    It may be subjective- I used the PITR test (people in the room) and some did say they couldn't be sure but mostly people on first look noticed.

    Really, though. ya'll rushed to shout it down so fast......wonder why? those players took a defensive stance against  are rushing to cry fake news about it. Or attacking me for bringing it up. 
    it reflects yourselves - rather poorly

    racist depictions in video games is real. whitewashing comic book heroes has a history to it. This forum shushing down any discussion of race or gender issues continues.....



    Yes it is a term. That does not exclude it from potentially being racist. Imagine if people said Samuel Jackson playing Nick Fury was black washing the character. I also dont feel reverse racism is a thing. Racism is simply racism to me. 

    Aside from that though, the costume looks the same to me on skintone. So dont just come on the forum saying the art team is racist and disgraceful for a slight shading change on a costume. And insinuating that anyone that doesn't agree with you is shouting you down because they must be racist too is absurd.

    Racism in any form is bad and should not be tolerated. On that we agree. I just honestly feel that racism is nowhere to be seen on shuris new costume.

    Edit. Sorry malcrof. Did not see your post before writing this. Will stay on topic here on out.

    @malcrof or any other mod ,can this comment please get moved over to the discussion on racism and diversity.

    Or enough ISO to max DD after applying the cover.

    It's 74,530 iso (inclusive of the champ tax) to champ a 2* from lvl 15

    That makes absolutely zero sense.  Its 50 cp for 20k iso and a costume.  

    The problem is that HFH is generally a bad value unless you're chasing a specific character/cover.  With the increased frequency of special stores it's better to wait for the character to appear there.

    The other problem is that iso is worthless to a decent chunk of the veteran population and buying iso directly was always a poor value.  If it was 300 cp for cover costume and hp there could be some justification.  

    I dropped 3,350 cp for 14 DD covers in Rescue's store and got a ton of 4* levels in the process.

    Did anyone ever confirm the cover is colorless, or your choice? Because that is almost certainly worth 50cp

    As others have said, I think it's 50cp for a costume and 20k iso.  The other 250 cp is the same as any other 5* DD hfh cover.

    It's a decent deal by mpq standards (which doesn't say much given how aggressively monetized mpq is).

    My Rocket and Groot look pretty smart in their matching uniforms.
