"Classic Spidey's blue not working as described"

Hi, I have noticed that Classic Spidey's blue ability does not seem to create new yellow webbed tiles as described. It only adds webs to existing yellow tiles on the board. If all the existing yellow tiles on the board are already webbed, this ability does not create or add any new tiles.

This is in contrast to Venom's purple, which creates new green webbed tiles (it actually changes the color of some tiles to green & webs them).

Spidey's blue ability should be changed, or at least, the description should, I think. Thanks.

    Studying the three spider man skills it seems like the purple is very situational and weaker than the other two.
    I have mine a 3 from rewards and was thinking of not adding any more.
    The primary route eventually would be 5/5/3 as the yellow and blue are really good.

    Is there any other thoughts on benefits of the purple skill I am missing?

    No, it's general consensus that Purple is weak and 5/5/3 is build to go
  • Purple is worthless. Pretty obvious they just added it to boost Spidey's level cap to 141.

    5/5/3 is the way to go.
  • Thanks, good to see I am not alone
  • I think he was given a weak third ability on purpose because of how strong his other 2 abilities are. They didn't want to tinykitty his level by only giving him 2. I think they did a good job balancing him.

    I've managed to get Spiderman's Purple and Yellow abilities, but I haven't gotten Blue yet. I'm staring at it in the rewards for the three-star tournament. My three-star characters are not good enough to win him. icon_cry.gif He really doesn't function without his blue power. You can't heal more than the base amount. You have no hope to activate his purple skill. There aren't many characters that don't work without one of their skills. Oh well, I guess I'll have to be patient.

    That said, he can be a pretty useful character with all of his abilities. I doubt there are any arguments for anything but a 5/5/3 build.

    Edit: There are now arguements over a 5/5/3 build. Looks like I'm going 3/5/5. I'm currently at 1/5/3.
  • You can team him up with Venom, who will generate Web tiles as well. Not nearly as well as the blue skill though.
  • I'd really like to use him but he's useless unless I get more covers. I only have one ability. His Spider Sense which never seems to work... icon_e_confused.gif

    The one time I've seen spidey sense trigger, I was super confused about what was going on.
  • His purple ability is obviously a throwaway skill that was just added to increase his level cap to 141 to keep the guy relevant for a long, long time.

    About the Venom synergy, you may want to think about not taking your Venom to 5/5 in both skills due to the increasing costs. Read the abilities and costs carefully. Many Venom players keep their abilities purposely lower to trigger cheaper Devour combos, but this has the net effect of making Venom even weaker than he already is. And Venom is already kind of bad. icon_e_sad.gif

    Yes it does. But I don't know how much. I can only say it's 195 for every web tile at level 30
  • 427 per at level 73, max of 6839

    wow that's nice. his 2ap stun lock is the most brilliant.
  • Ok, I don't know if this sounds extremly silly but after this heroic event I actually think about going 4/5/4 (or even 3/5/5) if I have the choice (atm i'm at 2/2/3).

    The passive saved my day with the maggia goons a few times (the first time not on purpose icon_e_wink.gif ). Because i often had two countdown tiles I couldn't clear and the blue ae was counting to zero, the other countdown was cleared by spider sense. I only was able to clear the last yelena mission because of this ability. Ok, I see that it's exclusively for PvE at the moment (or perhaps against daken or wolverines) but I also have no real need for the heal to go down to 9 AP. usually I don't want to heal right away but at the middle/end of the fight where 10/11 AP is not much. On the other hand if I ever get the blue skill to 4 or 5 then I will have a easy time having nearly always 3 web tiles on the field and the passive triggers anyway...But still a reason to max what you get first and don't let these covers go to waste.

    Any thoughts about this? ^^
  • As someone with a 2/2/1 I like the idea of this build. The changed purple went from useless to something worth considering, at least in some situations. Another thing to consider, if you have max webbing with a cost of 2, it's pretty trivial to stun in order to collect the last couple of yellows that you might need. However, one thing to keep in mind is that depending on who you pair Spidey with, the passive only works against strong AOE's (C.storm or M.Hawkeye) or when Spidey is at the front.
    People with high level Spideys on strong teams, how many colors does Spidey tank on? Yellow and purple or blue as well?

    5/5/3 is the ONLY build icon_e_smile.gif
    Passive saved your day? Just stun maggia goons and clock on tiles will also freeze so why you need purple? To activate purple spidey needs to take damage so this is .... strange tactics

    Out of curiosity, do you use heal more then once in a match on average? If not, how often do you think you would not have been able to cast it because you were missing the 2AP difference between a level3 and level5 heal?

    I don't know how long you had to fight with a 5 AP stun but I assure you it's not that easy. If you're lucky you can perma stun one person but 2 at the same time is almost impossible. And these maggia spawn a lot of countdowns...so if you can't keep up with the pace, the burden is lowered with the passive because you only have to take 1 hit and not 2.
