    (Interesting side note: If 3* Grocket PvP is next, it will lock out the 4* version during their boost week. Rejoice or lament accordingly.)
    It'll only suck for me for clearing seed teams since Rocket and Juggs is my main team for that. So, people will lose a boosted Rocket for their Gritty and Rocket/Juggs teams but they get a solid alternative with Rogue and Moon Knight or hell even Coulson.

    Can we get a Bishop nerf or rework already????? A 4 star with a 5 star power level. Come on already!

    Is it unusual not to have a new 4* as progression reward for the season.  I figured Hellcat would be a shoein for progression reward instead it's Spiderman 2099.

    There's a more thorough response in THIS thread, but the short version is that her release cycle wasn't over at the end of the season (her PVP was during the off-season), so she didn't rotate into tokens at the start of the new season, which means she's not in the typical season rewards. Spidey 2099 was picked to fill the gap. So she won't be eligible to be the "new 4* in season progression" until NEXT season. Just happens to be the way the dominoes fell this time.

    Yep, there's no way they could have avoided that.  Other than maybe releasing her before Apocalypse...
    In a magical world where development cycles don't exist and that was actually a viable solution, sure.

    Of course, that's making the erroneous assumption that it needs to be avoided in the first place. This has happened numerous times over the years, and is not the end of the world or something that needs fixing. Totally not something worth getting sour grapes over.

    The difference is that now the new character release schedule is synchronised with the PVP season schedule.  If they continue the 4/5/4/5/... release schedule, then the next 4* character will be finishing up it's release events after the current season ends, and the same for the one after that.

    Should we start our own June "Sneak Peek" thread or wait to see if @IceIX posts one.....?

    Since Wiccan is coming in PVP rewards, it appears we are about to enter the unofficial, official, Pride Month run of PVPs.  Wiccan, Daken, Deadpool, Nico, Karolina, Iceman, Mystique, Loki. America are all likely to be run.  I might be missing a couple.

    By Tuesday or Wednesday probably.

    I have to say, I admire your optimism.  The May Sneak Peek has not been touched in 25 days.  I guess we can wait and see, since we can't really add any events until they show up in game anyway.

    The next event is probably either Unstable Iso-8 or Cosmic Chaos for the new 5's PVE release.

    Is a new 5* confirmed?
