    A 3 week gap?   Makes me suspicious that the rewards update is coming "soon".

    Why is Doc Ock getting run as a 5-star again so soon? We shouldn't have seen him again until like, August of this year. He's already been featured this cycle, so running him again just makes it take longer for every other classic character to get a chance.

    Maybe he just took over the body of the person that was supposed to be in there.

    Superior Wasp? Can't be any worse.

    @IceIX we used to have a rebalanced character at the start of the new season.  What are the chances the Dev team gets back to rebalancing some older 5* in the first 1/2 of 2020?

    The last rebalance was Mr Fantastic a year ago.  EDIT:  Who followed only Doc Ock and Gambit in ALL of 2018.

    Each rebalance requires a LOT of testing as there are 202 characters in the game now.

    Don't hold your breath.

    How long ago was the 4* Kingpin/Fury tandem rebalance? I feel like it wasn't THAT long ago, but maybe it was?

    *edit* - found a post complaining about it from 2017, so i guess longer than I thought.

    Please more old 5 rebalancing, should be less work then adding a new 5.

    @IceIX we used to have a rebalanced character at the start of the new season.  What are the chances the Dev team gets back to rebalancing some older 5* in the first 1/2 of 2020?
    The last rebalance was Mr Fantastic a year ago.  EDIT:  Who followed only Doc Ock and Gambit in ALL of 2018.

    Each rebalance requires a LOT of testing as there are 202 characters in the game now.

    Don't hold your breath.
    I will keep asking because it will be good for the game.  With the new 5* being released at the end of Jan that is 3 weeks between releases and if they go to an every 3 week release schedule then they would have released time to rebalance characters. 

    Now in reality the 3 week gap is probably to set up the calendar for the rest of the year but I can still keep asking and hoping.

    2020 is a leap year, it could be some sort of schedule adjustment as previously mentioned to account for 2/29

    I mean...maybe?  The devs operate on weekly cycles so I don't know how an extra day in February will impact any of the game's scheduling.

    I wonder; there are some basic numbers tweaks that seem like they wouldn't cause any riots - for instance if you just take every character at 450 and compare basic match damage and base hit points, and normalize that, would anyone cry about it? Would you sell back your OML if his match damage was made to align with modern characters like Danver5? Or if Silver Surfer's health were as good as GE Doom's with no other changes? I think it's harder to break out the pitchforks over number tweaks than it is for tear-down-and-rebuilds.
    This seems logical but just never happens. Maybe there is some reason why we don't know about and I guess we probably never will.

    I was looking at the 4* PVP rewards and noticed that the rewards were skipping a bunch of 4's in the expected order.

    Back in December the 4's (which progress alphabetically) had been progressing into the "S"s with Quake, Red Hulk, Riri, Rocket, Sabretooth....

    However, when the special PVPs were run they added in Deadpool, Iceman, The Hulk (Main Event), Jubilee, Agent Venom (for some reason) in the middle of some of those.

    Now we are moving forward with Drax, Elektra, (Northstar for his), Gwenpool, Hulk (Totally Awesome).

    I was going to ask this as well as I have a few undercovered fours (War Machine, Wiccan, Winter Soldier, Yondu) and was looking forward to a productive period in PVP.
    However if they have just reset from Deadpool it still doesn't make sense as Deadpool, Drax, Elektra, Gwenpool, Hulk (TA) misses out characters from that sequence Domino, Emma, Gamora, Ghost, Ghost Rider.
    @IceIX can you shed any light on this please?
