    The 12 Days event this time around requires you to use only members with that affiliation.  That's different from prior runs where you only needed 1.

    The Evergreen Event sounds like a lot of fun. Forces us to play different character combos (no Kitty, Bishop, Worthy Cap, Okoye, etc).
    Assuming of course a green Passive ability still qualifies. 

    But a team of 3? That will be kind of weird to balance out what other color abilities you want to use. 

    For a completely unrelated question, is Beta Ray Bill still boosted for this event?   ;)

    For the Evergreen event? According to my notes, there won't be any boosted characters for the event, however I'll see if I can double check on a test build.

    I read some of it... then stopped when they said they had a really good QA team.
    They actually have a QA team?? Or do they mean us?  :p

    For a sec, I thought that was Prodigal Sun and The Hulk back-to-back.
    Evergreen looks like it would be a whole lot of fun if I were still in 4* land. 5torm, IceV, and Cable it is I guess. That does trim out Kitty, Okoye, HammerCap (and incidentally Hawkeye as well), and Bishop, tho, so it might actually still be pretty interesting.

    IceIX DDQ 12/24 is mr. Pool not flash venom 😀
    IceIX is out of the office already, but thanks for the heads up! I've updated it to show Deadpool (Uncanny X-Force) now :)

    Thanks @Brigby and Merry Christmas! Are we really getting another Iceman crash? We just had him before Deadpool. Or is this another case of copy-pasta?

    I'm hoping we at least end up with some acknowledgement of the now multiple weeks of misinformation regarding Deadpool dailies... It's looking intentionally bad, with the "next" batch (which is what the last batch ACTUALLY was), only even showing 4 days of the featured 3-stars, and they SHOULD be wrong, since everything but the missing day is exactly what the last batch was (though the ones posted were very different). Honestly, instead of posting the wrong things, just post nothing, with a message of "figure it out for yourselves", or something. It would be less harmful.

    Nice to see some more double iso events for people. 
  • wingXwingX Posts: 219 Tile Toppler
    It is good to see more special PVP event, It will be good to have more PVP event like Evergreen (like with other colours)  where there is a certain restriction to a team formation but not enough to lock out most characters if your roster not deep enough.

    Probably because he's fairly complicated to use, with almost ail his powers revolving around either your AP pool, the enemy's, or both. 

    This event has been all about winning a match as quickly as possible so you can shield, or putting out a defensive character to either have people skip you, or have them wipe to you. To me, Kingpin doesn't fit the bill for either of those descriptions. 
  • RickOShayRickOShay Posts: 443 Mover and Shaker
    But Kingpin was fine for early climbing, and actually quite fun. 
     With team Ups out of the way it was easy to get an early start on his underrated green, leading into his strong blue. 
    Not saying hes great but it was enjoyable to play with him a while.

    It appears as though @Brigby a) only corrected the Crash for the DDQ round starting 12/24 when prompted to do so, and didn't correct the erroneous Required characters or Behemoth Burrito teams (today's Behemoth Burrito supposedly requires Spider-Man 2099 when it actually requires Agent Coulson), and b) posted the *actual* lineup for the *last* DDQ round (the one that *still* shows Vulture as being featured in the Crash) as starting 12/31, when the next round should start 12/29 and e.g. should feature as Required characters Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Iron Fist, Ragnarok, and Kamala Khan.

    Also tagging @IceIX to let him know that the current DDQ round is still *mostly* erroneous and the DDQ round listed as starting 12/31 should in fact replace the one currently listed as starting 12/19.

    But apart from that...Merry Christmas @Brigby and @IceIX !
  • bluewolfbluewolf Posts: 4,910 Chairperson of the Boards
    The Hunt on 1/2 is not a new release.  Also, we have Wolfsbane rewards now for Prodigal Sun and MODOK for The Hunt, so the third Latest is 2099 who will be the reward (almost certainly) for the event starting on 1/6/19.  Assuming that 1/9 brings a new 4, that means that 2099 will be one of the 3 Shield Training essentials.

    He's been around a while, so that should make people pretty happy (at least vs it being Wolfsbane or MODOK).
  • MorganWickMorganWick Posts: 27 Just Dropped In
    *sigh* So the first DDQ of the new rotation just started, and it looks like we are, in fact, rerunning the same events as the last Savory round, with Sentry/Punisher/Blade/Patch/Torch as Required characters, Wolverine as the first Behemoth Burrito team, and Iceman in the Crash. Kind of pisses me off not only because of how both the communication and, apparently, programming of DDQs over the holidays was botched, but because I wasn't anticipating needing to have 2* Torch rostered for a few more days and we're less than 36 hours away from any 4*s received from primary feeders changing when the devs fixed the retroactive rewards expiring, so now I'm facing more of a roster-slot crunch than I was anticipating... I really don't mean to be so complainy, but I really do care about things going right and I do normally rely on this thread to assist in my planning...
