    Updated all sections. Trying something new by eliminating the sub-names for better readability except when there are multiples of a character in a rarity. Should be perfectly understandable, but let me know if there are any issues with it.

    @IceIX my only request is if you can move this thread to the MPQ General discussion section and change the header to indicate the date you updated it. Thanks!

    Two S.H.I.E.L.D. Trainings in a row where I have all required characters at over 10 covers. And Black, Blue and Red colors. Hmmmmm. Interesting.

    Is Captian America (Endgame) supposed to be (Worthy) as the Cosmic Chaos placement reward...?

    Got to say, I love seeing a little bit further out like this.

    Human Torch, Kraven, and Sam Wilson for the next Shield Training, with a little bit of foreknowledge to let people get ready.

    Iron Man, Ghost Rider as the next two classic 5-star Essentials. Guess we're skipping Green Goblin? The pattern has been a little wonky this time around, we skipped and shuffled a couple, Goblin is the only one that's still "out of sequence", skipped but hasn't been revisited yet.

    Then I see Iceman and Professor X, at which point Carnage should enter Latest Legends. The next event (not in the Sneak Peek) should start 11/28. Could be our first 5e with Carnage, could be a Boss for the (US) holiday, delaying Carnage by an event. Either way, having that tiny extra buffer before he's Essential for people to acquire him via Latest Legends if they haven't already, that's nice. Doubled by knowing that we'll have that buffer in advance (as someone who has had bad luck with 5's recently, both a slightly unlucky streak, and a streak of not pulling the characters/covers I want/need, I appreciate it, lol)
    Do you have a list/projection of the order of featured 5e you could share?

    I'm just stunned we are getting Human Torch twice as a required ST character in such a short time frame. Makes me really happy I bonused him and opened a bunch of tokens to get him last time.

    @IceIX Is there another new 4* Captain America incoming called Endgame? I'm confused!

    It seems like once someone is run, that becomes their new slot in the pattern, based on the last time they ran during the Classic cycle.  Goblin was run in July as part of the FarFromBration so it seems like he now falls somewhere after Cap FA.  The run back then was Cap FA, SMPP, Goblin, BSSM, Gambit, one after the other.

    Which (probably) means that after Kitty we get 5HE, DD, Cable, Banner, (skip JJ who was run later), 5Pin, Okoye, 5BW, Strange, Phoenix, Cap IW, and on it goes......

    New Endgame Cap is a really good listener.

    Empathize (6 blue) true heals the team for 2000 hp.  (Passive) if your teammate is going to take damage from an ability, stops 5000 of it.

    Just being there (10 yellow AP) places 6 protect tiles of 500 strength.

    Move on (8 purple AP) supercharges the team.  Places a countdown that makes all damage done do 2000 more damage for 4 turns.

    DPvMPQ as the new release event?  Ugh.

    I say again, UGH

    The progression reward colors for Doc Ock can't be right. He's a blue-black-green character and it's shown as purple-green-black. it's probably just a copy error.

    I heartily approve.  I may approve even more if it confuses Ian.

    On the other end of things, I expected that Capt. America Worthy would be the next essential 4* in SHIELD training, because that makes sense, and I still don't have Torch at level 209 because I've been focused on drawing Cap Worthy covers over the last few weeks.

    It's almost like they lost track of what was featured in the previous SHIELD training.

    Tinfoil Hat Harry says they skipped Worthy because they've given out his covers in a boss event and everyone is chasing him so lots have him well covered.

    On the other hand, Fair Minded Fred says a lot of players may have chased Torch before when he was essential, and this will be the 3rd time you can get covers for him.  So there's been a good amount of opportunity there.

    Honestly I am not sure they are following any specific patterns on ST lately, but shouldn't we just be kind of glad it isn't Wolfsbane who's required?

    I stopped chasing Torch after the SHIELD Training figuring "They won't use him again for a while" and "Worthy will be next up so time to start chasing him".  They played me for a sucker.   So whoever came up with the idea of using Torch again, please "Go tinykitty yourself".
    I did the same and now it is too late! Should'a learned from Ronin.
