    @IceIX So we're getting 3* Daredevil in placement rewards for the Red Shift event then again about a week later in the High Stakes event? (EDIT: Not even a week, just a few days apart, really) Is that right, or an accidental bit of copypasta? Not a huge deal if true, just seems weird to be getting a character in placement/progression for events so close together. Basically almost back to back.

    Why are they skipping WorthyCap and going straight to SM2099...? Seems out of order?

    Cap was just rewarded in PVE.
    This is the first PVE for 2099 after his release.

    That should make WorthyCap the round rewards in the following boss event, right? Wouldn't mind getting 3 covers there...

    I thought that too but seems a bit too good to be true

    If the Sneak Peek is right, Iceman is getting skipped as a 5E.  We had Ock, Thor, Profe55or, Storm, and now Archie and 5SL.  Kinda weird.

    EDIT:  Verified on the in game preview. Archangel is next.

    @IceIX It would be nice if when you update these you update the title with the date it was updated. It makes it more convenient to see when these are updated with info as opposed to just people posting new comments.

    I think it may be Halloween related.  Ghost Rider and Blade are out of alphabetical order, also maybe Daredevil and, bit of a push to mythology, Cyclops?
    Hope that means we get Medusa next, I'm stuck on 5/1/5.

    Would be nice. I could finish mine off.

    High Stakes - Blade (Daywalker) Versus Event (10/27/19) *New Update*

    Vicious Cycle - Ghost Rider (Johnny Blaze) Versus Event (10/27/19) *New Update*
    I'm assuming, based on each event's respective placement awards, that this is a typo and D3 isn't actually testing the longstanding suggestion of running 3* and 4* Versus events in parallel? ;)

    Personally, I'm hoping it's not a typo (even though it almost certainly is)

    Last Halloween they ran a 4* ghost rider event so it is more Halloween than 4* PVP unfortunately

    Honestly, it would be pretty cool to see 6 3-stars and 4 4-stars PVP for each season.

    Would also be cool to get some PVP/PVE updates. It's less like a sneak peek and more like a diary now.

    At the bottom of the Halloween event thread is a list of these PVPs:

    Halloween Related Character Versus Events

    • Daredevil, Blade (Daywalker), Ghost Rider (Johnny Blaze), Blade (Modern), Cloak and Dagger, Venom (Eddie Brock), Carnage (Cletus Kasady), New Character (???)

    That's 6 consecutive 4* PVPs to finish out the season.  Honestly, I welcome just about anything other than Pick-3 PVP events at this point.

    The 4 will, based on that list being in order, fall on 11/7, 2 weeks after Carnage's HP release and 4 weeks after Spidey 2099 and on it goes......

    Spoiler alert!  Almost certainly another character on 11/21 (the tier is up in the air), or maybe if they push it a week it'll be 11/28 and you can grind over Thanksgiving.

    No offense, but why is anyone surprised when they push out a new character every 2 weeks, like they've been doing for years and years?

    I don't think it's surprise mate, it's more just a mixture of things. Off the top of my head:
    • All the major, big name characters now appear in game (some in multiple tiers e.g. IM35, IM40, Hulkbuster & IM46, and some characters multiplied in same tier e.g. BSSM & SMPP). Churn of new characters vs. re-skins seems lower, but I've not done the maths and happy to be corrected.
    • Dilution of 4* tier is a clear and present danger, called out by numerous end users, yet we're still in limbo as to a solution (barring Targeting Heroes being the solution).
    • Keeping up with new releases to cover them to 10/13 for Shield Training is just plain scary. Personally I've never had the newest release at 10 covers. This MAY change with next ST, if it's worthy Steve but only because I blew my 2860cp hoard in the classics store post anniversary & he was my BH.
    • (This is a personal view) - Huge discrepancies in quality of 4* characters - Great recent additions - Sabretooth, Ronin, Hammond Torch. Poor recent additions - Mysterio, Black Cat, Talos, Namor. Just plain broken additions - Worthy Cap & B****p. Why rush out a poorly designed character when you can take a little longer and create something that's worth a place in the 4* tier? Mysterio & Namor were big missed opportunities.
    Above is all my own view. Happy to be shot down on any of it. Now that I think about it, last point is possibly even more applicable to 5* tier...
