    Also, why are we starting over in the I's again. This happened before over Christmas. The 4* pvp reward rotation keeps getting reset. In December it reset from Iceman. Looks like it happened again. Just think it's kinda odd.

    I wonder if it has to do with Super-Skrull coming up "too soon" in the regular order? (Though they could just skip it.) I was looking forward to those late alphabet characters as well.

    They started over when Invisible Woman was rewarded a little while ago. The unfortunate history is that there have been resets when they ran 4* PVPS which break the expected alphabetical progression.

    One could speculate that there is some automated reward scheduler that is getting changed and that it is either too hard to change, or they are uninterested in changing it back to the reward that was previously set to come next. And it is easier to let the automated scheduler continue on, since the vast majority of players do not care, are not aware of the pattern, or both.

    We highly engaged players are like, maybe, 1/10 of the total players at most.

    Was thinking along the same lines bluewolf.

    Are the rewards for I,Spy in a new order or is that my imagination? The HP is still at 25 wins, and the second CP reward is back way up at 75 wins. Is this a new normal?

    Now that is a bad mistake.

    Did they ever mention them changing the cp reward in pvp back to 1.2?

    They've swapped the CP rewards with the 350 shards of the 4 star.

    Seems like they 'noticed' that a lot of players suddenly stopped at 1000 instead of pushing to 1200, and that means a difference in HP spending due to shield hops.

    Is there going to be an explanation for the PvP change?   It was not mentioned in any communications and it shows they knew it was going to be a shock.  Optics are not good for this one.

    This change simply will cause people playing just for 450 points another time

    DP v MP preview up.....

    Gives out Yelena shards in progression.  Placement is Captain Marvel......looks like SCL9 is my destination for whatever event follows.  No desire to grind out SCL10 for half a CM.

    And of course you will miss out on iHulk shards this time around, as expected.

    Just felt like pointing out that they started the New and Improved PVP rewards structure with boosted Bishop week. 

    Fantastic planning!  There’s no other team I like to fight more than BRB and Bishop 75 times. 
    Boosted bishop isn’t AS terrifying since the damage threshold is higher for cheesing blue

    Oh @IceIX.  The DP vs MPQ is wrong as well.   Could you please take a look at this and let us know what happened. Was to be Hulk Shards and now Yelena shards.  Just curious.

    The Yelena shards follow the pattern they followed for iHulk where you got his shards instead of JJ shards. (JJ was essential but we got no shards for her, neither from placement nor progression.)

    I assume the Sneak Peek just has mistaken information feeding it coming from Demiurge's communication to Ice, who just posted what was given to him.

    Anyway the event is live and that's that.  Yelena it is.  I already have some of them, having started in 1.10.

    A broken char is always a broken char. Boosted or not.

    Please lay your hand flat on the table. 

    Now I am going to smash it with this tool. 

    Oh!  Don’t worry! Instead of a hammer I’ll be using this rubber mallet. It’ll hurt a lot less that way, I’m sure.

    It wouldn't be that bad if it wasn't Widow events one after another so Widow stuns are unusable. Devs are so cruel.

    All I know is that my one cover in black iHulk is bloody killing me in his 5E everytime he comes back to life! The AI is loving this!
