    Not a fan of this event's scaling  :s

    Hearing all that makes me sad I missed Sandman's clear. Venom I handled with Riri-- I assumed because they can't be stunned like bossed, that you also wouldn't be able to send them airborne. Wrong. Riri's green sent 1v1 Venom airborne perfectly fine! Her self-feed red nuke in a 1v1 fight is also very efficient.

    Just took out the LVL 509 Venom with...Howard the Duck.  Invisibility works just great in this match, and Howard has the added bonus of destroying green tiles so Venom can't fire off his Symbiotic Fury easily.  You just have to get lucky (or use AP boosts) to get enough purple to turn invisible before match damage takes you out.

    Nice surprise to get a spiderham as one of the rewards for beating the boss. Has this ever been done before in a boss event?

    IW Spidey is still the MVP of the single node so far.

    Invisible characters might work unless the enemy ha AoE.

    I like that Infinity War Spidey is so good in this event, you can't dare use him against boss Venom in Sinister Six as he just gets one-shot devoured!

    Edit: Although I haven't been able to play the Venom boss yet so hope the above is not wishful thinking for that...

    I actually laughed during the current group of side nodes on Blade's essential when the second wave was a single, extremely boosted Hammer Commander.   In all my years in this game, I hadn't previously seen a "boss" Hammer goon :)
    That sounds really very awesome! It will be a race home to see if I can try that and Venom before the next 8 hour refresh!

    I was so floored by this that I took a screenshot.  Venom should have been there.  Apparently he wandered away and roosted in the one on one node.

    Good call on 5* Doom vs Boss Venom.  My Hela got slaughtered, but Doom cut him down without effort.

    5 nodes I see in each round are (i miss some round) 
    -E4(spider IW)
    -E3(blade)
    -1on1 
    -Semi Essential node
    -2nd E4 node

    where is E2 node?????
    putting 2 E4 nodes of 5 nodes is not friendly with new player.

    Five Star Fisk today.  Used Miles just for the “Into the Spiderverse” vibe.  Stayed invisible for most of the fight and got it on the first (maybe third) try.

    Same here.  I saw her pop up after the first wave died, and was wondering where the other two goons were.  Then I saw that she had about 70K health, and thought "OK.  She's boosted."  That was not at all what I was expecting...

    Welcome to a boss event, @fiirst. They aren't tailored to benefit new players. They're tailored to benefit players with deeper rosters. Have been since their inception. Contribute what you can and your Alliance should get you covers for the 3-star and 4-star rewards.

    Congratulations devs, you made one of the worst alliance events in the game, if not the worst.
    It's frustrating, the 1v1 node is really hard for so many players ( i have all 3*s championed and i'm still struggling to win the node), Hydro Man is a pain in the butt and Molten Man is a piece of cake. So, basically there is one super hard boss and than there is one super easy boss to make the balance. Jesus...
    After the event ends, I really hope you will make some changes to it for the future.

    Prowler is the next 1v1 boss. Not sure who I should use against him, but maybe 4* Iron-Spidey or 5* Parker will be up for the task..
    Ohhh, please make an upcoming 1v1 feature a boss level Taskmaster!

    I hope not this is the best boss event except civil war. 1 v 1 nodes are a nice challenge to keep me playing and are not needed to get 900k. 

    We have all been through where you are with the game, I couldn’t finish them often with a 3 star roster.

    Enjoy it as bit by bit you progress.

    On the contrary, I think it’s one of the best. Yeah, molten man is easier, but having having bosses that are tough is the whole point. It actually encourages you to use different teams that you wouldn’t normally use, and some actual skill and strategy, rather than just matching tiles until you die or win.

    The same for the 1v1 mode, which forces you to think about your roster, and figuring out how to counter each character. Yes, it has been more difficult, but that is what players are asking for more and more, to keep the game fresh.

    The only problem I have with this entire event, however, is that we have miles, Gwen and fury as essentials. All of these have a 4* only version, which makes it difficult for a weaker roster, as there’s no other available choice like there is with spidey.

    On the whole, I say good job to the devs, this is a very fun event. People on the whole seem to respond well to the 1v1 challenge.

    I've loved the 1v1 nodes so far. I'd love to see them appear somewhere else. Like a season long Gauntlent, with a couple of these added along the chain, maybe the final node and one in the middle somewhere.

    A guy can dream, right?
