I was able to t100 the super skrull release PVE by just green-checking the nodes, so I have a decent jumpstart on him. It makes a huge difference when you have a champed featured 5* to get through those clears for sure.
I've been seeing some immortal hulk's in PVP, and so far he is about as rough as I expected he'd be, even mostly covered. Completely different from the 1/1/1 loaner.
I'm about 2/3 of the iso from champing another 4*, I'll probably do Karnak. Th4nos and To4ch are covered, after that everyone will still need some covers.
Valkyrie was only 100 shards from lvl 300, which would put my Thor at 4/0/2 and increase the tile break from 3 to 4. That doesn't seem like it would be much, but it actually changes everything. I went ahead and burned 10x LTs to get him up a cover, and I went from being unable to find a team to 4x clear the surfer node and having to use WCap/Coulson/Hawkeye to (eventually) clear the challenge node, to just burning through both like they were nothing. Totally worth it, only got 1x champ level for BRB in the process. I'm back up to 3LTs and 437 cp.
Miles Morales finally came up in my shard store. I needed 40 shards to put him at the correct number that this iteration of Spid3r-Man would take him to 300 instead of 299, so I picked up 2 slugs of shards. Still having fun with Thor-Koye, but man this team is whack on defense. Makes wins-based pretty painless for sure though - for some reason I'm seeing mostly other thorkoye teams which are very beatable.
Karnak is champed now; not counting Sider-Ham, but counting Super Skrull I have 6 un-champed 4*s left:
2099: 5/5/2 (1 saved)
Wolfsbane: 5/3/2 (2 saved)
Torch: 4/4/5 (2 saved)
Thanos: 5/4/4 (1 saved)
Maria Hill: 2/2/3
Super Skrull: 3/2/2
Spider-Ham: 2/3/4 (forever)
Currently have 5 LTs and 539 cp, waiting on Hulk to show up. They nearly got me with this OML/Archangel/5torm store, my OML is 4/1/4 and archangel is 2/2/2, but neither is going to be as good as pulling for hulk/havok/sinister i don't believe.
BRB is out, iHulk is in. I had ~ 40 pulls in latest and wasn't able to find one, but i did get 2x for Sinister and 3x for Havok. That many pulls was enough to finish the 13th cover I needed for Carbage, so he is now champed. I got some shards for a Profe$$or X champ level, an organic Miles pull that put him at 299, so Fi5k is pretty near-term as well. I also got a few Kate Bishops (294) and a Valkyrie (302), and my Frost is now 299.
Current crop of Latest:
Sinister: 4/3/5 (640|500 shards)
Havok: 2/1/1 (165|500 shards)
iHulk: 0/0/0 (365|500 shards)
I'm still going to let Valkyrie get me that 5th green on Thor, I think that's as built as I need him for awhile. After that I'll move to Kate Bishop.
I'm going to move my 5* FH over to Hawkeye. at 2/5/3 i get a lot of use out of him, but maxing out that purple will really make him reliable for challenge nodes. I'll probably do the same thing I did for Thor here, and get 1x cover out of him directly and then finish up with Kate Bishop.
3* remains on Spid3r-Man until i get that last Miles (well, i flipped a bunch of 3*s over the weekend and champed To4rch, so for the moment it's replacing those). After that, I'll push it to Ragnarok to help with Valkyrie, then I'll probably go all in on the Hawkeye tree.
After Hawkeye, I probably need to go to work on Kitty Pryde. She's at 3/2/0, and I think worth champing, so I'll probably just park it on her for the foreseeable, and move over to Frost as well.
I got the 22 cp out of this story that was ending, and pulled a black iHulk cover, so I'll probably start sitting tight until Sinister leaves.
