    Yes, we know that the movie isn't coming out right now, so "Only In Theatres" is a bit of a misnomer. Social copy is social copy. :)

    Yay, thanks for the info!
    Yelena looks interesting so far. Helpful passive and cheap / normal cost abilities.

    Big hitting traps for just 7 purple. Only the enemy can match them unfortunately, but you will always know what color they will always be placed upon.
    PvE vs goons that build up to 10+ green for example might be fun to play against with that passive.

    she looks OKAY at best(taking into consideration what we normally see in pvp), just gotta wait until we see her in action.

    You're always so optimistic. She looks like more mediocre drek. Her red won't fire until mid to late game and green does 4* damage. Purple looks somewhat decent but is too random. If only her release store had JJ instead of Panther, i'd have spent on that.

    Sinister Sidekick with those traps? I’d run her 3/5/5 with Sinister for maximum trap/Cascade nonsense

    Please explain how the hint “Under the pale moonlight” relates to Yelena. Please?

    She's often called the Pale Little Spider, and her spy exploits are usually done at night in the comics.

    This one is going in the book under "really weird clues" right next to that time "Stop me if you've heard this one" meant Doc Ock because stop signs have eight sides.

    A bit too optimistic usually, very true. But I'm not hearing enough people in different chats mention how hard it will be to get an expensive power built up against her passive.
    I mean, BRB's green will be nearly impossible. Sure you may get to block her passive damage with protect tiles, but your Bill/Kitty team will take forever to win until she's down.
    I'd agree with others that Yelena could have had the AP swap to your side on one of those powers (like Sinister does).
    Green should have been designed to do more team damage, and Destroy CD's! It's not too late to fix this!
    Seriously, you have hundreds of clever fans that could help the Dev's with design elements.
    9 AP isn't bad for an AoE though, even if weak, and I'm wondering how 5* Carol may help power that up to fire off more often.

    Okoye, Yelena, Sinister has rainbow match damage, and will be doing tons of small hits boosted by TU. Sounds fun in SIM.

    Yelena has the lowest health of anyone since Storm (basically the same as Hela) but has the 7th highest match dmg.

    Makes her fairly likely to tank (depends on the team), and I suppose making her die faster is good when she messes with your AP.

    I suppose using her with Sinister could be something.... Yelenister?

    That red passive with Peggy and Infinity Cap and you can pretty much prevent all but the cheapest AI powers from firing in a match.

    What is Cap's role in that team?

    Probably using his purple to stop cheap powers from being used. Instead making their AP build up further.

    5/3/5 for me, without question.
    Very curious to see how her powers will work against BRB, since it seems like they might do well in that.

    Against Bill's green her passive should be good.
    But, against his OP Blue, well we still have few answers.
    If the enemy team hits a Yelena trap with his Blue CD out, or if you fire your green team damage, Bill will just put more protects out, all day.

  • pheregaspheregas Posts: 1,564 Chairperson of the Boards

    Will her passive include the counts of TU tiles?

    If so, could be an interesting Okoye counter.

    Interesting, but nowhere near BRBitty.

  • TPF AlexisTPF Alexis Posts: 3,802 Chairperson of the Boards

    I can see the "convert strongest colour to weakest colour" thing backfiring a lot. Do you really want to be turning black into yellow for a Thorkoye team? Feeding purple to Daredevil or blue to Iceman? There are also a bunch of places where it will be good, of course, but there are some pretty common characters/teams who will love that swap.

  • DyingLegendDyingLegend Posts: 899 Critical Contributor

    Oh boy another 5 star

    Maybe I will have her covered in 5 years.

  • Vins2Vins2 Posts: 183 Tile Toppler

    If this stupid red passive is gonna force me away from Daredevil and only encourage more people to play BRB/Kitty I feel I'm at the end. 4ap loss on a passive is the kind of anti-fun that I thought they were done with, from Gambit v2.0's reception.

  • wymtimewymtime Posts: 3,473 Chairperson of the Boards

    She has interesting powers. I think her red makes her a take me out first character and fits more of a 3rd when support than a meta 2. I think 5 in red and think her Purple and green will be dependent on who you use her with. If you have a Thor or BRB then 5 in Purple. If you are going non green users then 5 in green but only against special tile spammers.

    Overall I would say a B character based on powers. Good 3rd if you want but not someone you build a team around
