    I think everyone would have been happy with the release test , but to have the essential straight after an almost impossible vault is ridiculous and will make lots of people quit the game 

    if it is indeed just a test then fine but if this is the new plan for 5*s then I’ll be playing a lot less than I do now 

    time for the design team to give us back something worthwhile

    Nobody is going to quit.
    The whales will continue to spend like mad.
    The people who are still playing now will continue to do so until the servers are turned off.

    Going forward, is it going to be 4 latest epics, 2 classic epics? Asking for a friend, @Brigby

    Thank you, @DarthDeVo. This is exactly right. I’ve spent a few days thinking about it, because your post is so insightful, and I’m ready to act. Time to cut this cancer out, or at least start treating for it. Because I’m their target. And there are healthier ways to have fun.

    Player base is down and my interest is waning (pvp is taking much longer due to fewer players).  New releases have sucked and I was already reluctant to continue with my regular spending - this fiasco encouraged me to write another 1* review.  

    I've probably got more hours logged into Teppen than MPQ since its release.

    So little time so much hate. Guess it might tell the response to the super odds given to draw Xactly what we are after. I bought a 10 draw; got only 2* guys xD

    With the posts that @JHawkInc and @bluewolf posted, I hope the Devs read these.  I was gonna post something but these 2 really knock it out of the park and I will hold onto my last warning for another time.

    Mixed feelings about the more recent 4* being rewarded. Black Cat green is awesome, as it will let me finally champ her and cash in all the Saved black covers I have. Ronin purple brings him to 2/5/5, tho, which is always frustrating. Well, there's gotta be a green coming along at some point.

    Nice! Sabretooth's getting champed, too!

    Green cover in X-Men Vs. Apocalypse alliance rewards will let me champ Sabretooth with 5 saved covers, and if I'm really lucky with my Alliance's help, seven saved covers. Sometimes patience does pay off! I'll also get one more cover for Black Cat via progression from the event, leaving her to be one cover shy of 13.

    Is 5* storm not getting boosted for this event? She does come under the category for Storm does she not?
