    Does Prof X himself increase AP costs as a member of the X-men?  Meaning 1-3 is the range of increase?  Or 0-2 and he needs at least one X-man teammate?

    On a side note, Loving his purple. Please don't make it too expensive! And please don't "Lockjaw blue" it (far too low damage).
    Also, change beasts and Jubilees abilities, nobody wants burst health (especially in 5* tier) and 4* Jubilees purple ability is garbage so why include it here? 
    Actually quite curious about Jubilee's purple here. It could be more like Mystique blue which is OK. Got to agree though that it's hard to choose this over a damage ability. 

    I'm expecting Chuck's purple to be on the expensive side, but hope not. I realize everyone is choosing Rogue here anyway.

    I don't know what to think about any of this to be honest He's kind of impossible to evaluate without numbers, but he sort of feels like 5* Coulson in many ways. That' he is just a few days out and still in this much flux is kind of wild.

    As for the HP store, I guess that's a net positive for me since I don't spend into the pre-release stores anyway.

    Yeah, especially as 4* Jubilee’s purple, which has the same effect, had a solid damage component on top of the color change mechanic.  I guess we shall see...

    Don’t hold your breath for an answer @DarthDeVo, you’ll unfortunately pass out.
  • DyingLegendDyingLegend Posts: 664 Critical Contributor
    Once I saw two stars and three stars could be pulled, no thanks. I'm tired of constantly pulling 2 stars. Even if I wanted this new prof x ( which I don't) I wouldn't want to spend hero coins full knowing I will get a two star for every pull. 

    I've given up trying to cover 5 stars. It's impossible with the release schedule and dilution of classic 5s.
  • BigSoftieFFBigSoftieFF Posts: 364 Mover and Shaker
    Came back to the thread hoping for answers.... big tinykitty shock that there aren’t any. I’d expect them all to hide for several days if not more at this point.

    Why Rogue for the AOE? should be Jean Grey. Her kit is literally to damage the enemy team. Sorry, I know the thread focus has been “HP instead of CP, WHAAAAT!” and “Required next event, WHAAAAT!” but that was a glaring thematic flaw.

    From the look of it, this character is meant to match the theme of 90s costume X-Men as featured in the cartoon. There is no "classic" variant of Jean Grey in the game, so that probably explains why she was skipped.

    As part of that theme, I suspect the power will reuse art from the 2* variants of Wolverine and Storm, and the 4* variant of Cyclops.

    "...for the first time ever players can now use Hero Points, instead of Command Points, to earn a brand new 5-Star from this store."

    Could this be why the rather expensive offer that came out today comes with 9,000 HP?

    This is terrible.....
    I agree. I also think it is so weird that I was writing a long post about how it seems the developers are actively making it harder for us to finish fives (quicker releases, less resources, no more pop up stores, less frequent feeders); and as I’m writing it, this news pops up. Terrible.
