    Historically (I've been playing for over five years), MPQ has been abysmal at communication compared to other mobile games I play. However, in the past six months it really has set a new low bar. This is all pre COVID-19 so the virus would only be an excuse. I have no idea what has happened but I hate to see this happen to a game I really enjoy quite a bit.

    I am not sure if I should feel worried or not....the communication has been so bad, maybe it's just business as usual. But then you think about the virus and how bad it is for some people, and then you wonder about the business model and how well it's holding up in uncertain economic times for this very old mobile game.

    And despite assurances, Demiurge just got bought out and is looking for more/better opportunities in the console environment. And BW getting shelved for 6 months (at minimum) can't be helpful for the game and it's plans.

    I noticed that 4BW is sitting in the corner of the PVE screens.....

    BW (grey suit) PvP event... Jean Grey as 4* reward. Looks like the sequence is resetting back to J. headdesk

    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    EDIT: They ran 3BW's PVP in March so I guess this is/was a "tie in" to the poor BW movie.

    Why is 3BW being rewarded in placement for the 3BW event?

    Interesting that Black Widow is both Progression and Placement.

    Are folks forgetting that Black Widow was going to be in theaters next Friday?

    Not necessarily, but I would have expected a 4* Widow PvP after the 3* one. And it is a bit odd to be getting GSBW in placement and progression back to back.

    I think they could release the content they like about black widow and a new pve if they did one.
    I mean it wont be the same if the film was together but after all the pves never had been an spoiler because they never follow the film.
    Same happens with other characters appearing on film, they are never ever exclusives.
    And the same applies to morbius film which was about to be released soon and so entering the game

    Well... that can't be right. (referring to update that has Sinister as the current featured 5*, rather than Havok in HoD.)

    I'm delighted by the All BW event, and it nicely explains what the heck with the back-to-back 3BW rewards.

    My point was more with the exception of I think Bagman, they have never had the same character in progression and placement rewards. (Or at least it's been a long long time since they have)

    Please check notes on PvE for the latest update. Havok is the 5e for HoD, which should also change the 5e for Strange Sights.
    Thank you for the update!

    Edit: Also lists SW as 3e for both HoD & SS.

    Even when they're late, they screw up. Havok for ss, when hod is clearly running havok.

    Using the short hand for gamora? Instead of the awesome mix vol. 2 parenthesis?
