    Got a lot more questions and concerns, from Alliance events (three months without one), updated rewards for the new five stars since October, additional SHIELD ranks above 200 etc., but thank you for the update! 
  • HoundofShadowHoundofShadow Posts: 3,377 Chairperson of the Boards
    Wakanda Forever! Time flies and it has been about two years(?). I miss those hazard tiles.

    That explains why Shuri has her PvP coming up.
  • krakenoonkrakenoon Posts: 348 Mover and Shaker
    @IceIX
    Thanks for the timely update, any chance of this becoming a regular thing?

     I think I’ve heard chatter that something like Wakanda was desired, so kudos for that.

    I personally am interested in these more useful shards. Not sure how meta Karnak is, but he’s more on my radar than Bl4ck Widow or any 4 from this year (though I can get behind Super Srull’s kit, even N*, not meta, but kinda cool I guess.).

    Have the forums agreed that Karolina is trash outside of the beautiful artwork? Even with Nico, she seems meh and I would imagine there are much better things to chase than heals and protects that Nico can’t use.

    Thank you, @IceIX !

    A small note, @IceIX - under “Upcoming Deadpool’s Dailies”, Quake is identified as a 3-star. Which she is not. 
  • axmossaxmoss Posts: 132 Tile Toppler
    I think your dates are messed up. Fight for wakanda (4 day) on 4/30, cosmic chaos (3 day) on 5/4

    I think that was just a mix up of the Clash and Requireds label.

    The way that PVE rewards are set up, they reward the 3 Latest 4's (most recent) in 3/5 events and Classic (all the rest) in 2/5 events, then the cycle repeats.  The order is LLLCC.

    As of now, the 3 Latest 4s in tokens are Karnak, Maria Hill, and Super-Skrull.  EDIT:  As you can see by looking at the PVE rewards for the current and upcoming events, which are rewarding exactly those characters (Skrull next, then Hill).

    I don't disagree with your thoughts on Karolina (well, she's not quite "trash" but she's not very helpful), but we won't get her covers in PVE again for about 2 1/2 years. So don't worry about that! 

    She will be a PVP rewards about every 7 months, her next round should be coming up pretty soon since we are looking at Juggernaut right now, and it's alphabetical.

    -------

    It's interesting that we are on some kind of Wakanda/BP theme right now, for...reasons?  The end of the current (acclaimed) writer's run approaching at some point in the comics?  We have BP and Okoye in the CP store, FFW returning, a 3BP and Shuri PVP with an apparent 4BP coming after that....also a Shuri bundle in the HfH right now.

    Whoops, totally a transcription error. Not a new version of Quake. Fixed!
  • wymtimewymtime Posts: 3,495 Chairperson of the Boards
    @IceIX first how are you and the other devs holding up with working from home?

    2nd how is the process going in hiring a new community manager?

    3rd with the extra time on everyone’s hands any thoughts of going on puzzle warriors 3 podcast for a Q & A? Maybe to give some sneak peaks on what will make this month A-May-zing? Or with the 2nd character release in May?
  • JormagundJormagund Posts: 153 Tile Toppler
    Thanks for the prompt update and bringing FFW back.  Wasn't around last time it played and always wanted to see how bad it was; and the hazard tiles being removed solve the main complaint I've heard mentioned.

    WEEKLY BUFFS

    (4/30/20 - 5/7/20) *New Update*

    Is that Agent Venom or Eddie Venom?

    @bluewolf

    I’m familiar with the schedule, probably means it’s about to change. Still, I appreciate the effort.

    I had a little difficulty getting to 40 wins on some of the recent PvPs, so I missed sorely needed Peggy cover. Would have been nice to get shards on my way to 25. Overall, I feel rewards are getting back to a decent place for an ok amount of play time (pre SCL10). Unfortunately, as a 3 to 4 transitioner, the overall drop has forced me to play hot potato with characters like Bl4ck Widow.

    It will be nice to graduate to tossing 5 star covers...

    Edit; Maria is a bit meh too. Unique mechanic, but I think I’d prefer someone else’s strikes. She is part of the new trap meta if you have a surplus of blue AP or just let her (nearly) die. Trap meta is pretty dependent on 5s to me.

    I think Brock Venom, we just had Agent Venom boosted not that long ago, if I'm not mistaken.

    Karnak is a lot of fun with Bishop and America.
  • ThaRoadWarriorThaRoadWarrior Posts: 4,656 Chairperson of the Boards
    The entirity of the difficulty in FFW was from the hazard tiles - I was always curious how that would play at SCL10, and with so many of the newer characters like BRB who would just stay flush with blue and green on sub...2 was it? when the protects were everywhere? I'm curious if it will even have any of that old character without it.
