    Well is here is a low cost, high certainty enemy special tile destroyer.  Purple certainly seems the obvious power at 5, the other two don't really seem to matter what they are at.  Lot's of potential to gather that red and purple ap fairly quickly and take out 8 enemy special tiles early.  I am assuming she is supposed to fit into the Gritty counter mold in 4* and maybe even 5* land?  Works somewhat on BRB but since his repeater is fortified, not quite as effective and he gets all that AP. She could be super effective in PvE meta against goons and special tiles spawners like Carnage.

    I find the arrangement of programmes pretty neat.

    Week 1: new 4* debut
    Week 2: new 4* Shield Training
    Week 3: new 5* debut
    Week 4: new 5* special cp store (+ alliance event)

    I'd love to put 4 or 5 of her repeaters on the board to buff all my SAP tiles by 304 or 380 every turn. Unfortunately, it requires yellow ap, which seems to be quite an uncommon colour. Most yellow ap feeders seem to be villians, with C&D being the exception in 4* land.

    How does that repeater compare to Frost's? 
  • HoundofShadow

    Assuming we team her up with R4G, her repeater at 5 covers:

    Creates a 2-turn Yellow Repeater tile that places 2 strength 90 Strike tiles and improves up to 3 existing friendly Strike tile by 58.

    Every two turn:

    Frost + 354 strike damages

    For Hellcat, + 1064.

    A lot of factors will change the equation, such as longevity of those strike tiles.

    Overall, Hellcat's three abilities are better.

    I'm liking the idea of moving all of enemy Apocalypse's repeaters to the bottom row, then destroying them with her other power before they can create any protect tiles. We'll see how that works in her PvP.

    Also, when enemy special tiles are all of one color like with Hela's black ability, you could get a match-8 when moving those blue attack tiles to the bottom row .
    I will give @Thanos $1 if you make this happen in a video. :smile:

    Cheap powers, supporting abilities, destroyer of special tiles... this 4* char sure can help a lot on any game mode. 
    And her colours not include green or blue.
    Time to start her champing. And maybe setting as shard favourite.
    I will study it.

    Wow good character. I'm going for 5/3/5. Really squishy though.

    From the other hellcat thread:

    She looks reasonably good (or at least she would look reasonably good if new 4* releases mattered at all anymore.  But 4* tier is dead.).  Very squishy at 10k health.

    but 3 cheap powers with good synergy.  purple moves all enemy specials to the bottom row, red clears a targeted row (and makes decent strikes).  I am not sure how well her yellow will work in practice.  It seems most similar to Nico's tile buffing in that will buff everything by a modest amount 1x per turn, but I haven't played with Nico enough to know if that's good or bad.

    Are we going to get information the this SHIELD event?  Is it like SHIELD training or something new?  Any info?  
    Tune in tomorrow to find out. Same cat time, same cat channel.

    If they ever decide to do more costumes (instead of completely dropping the feature like supports), I really hope they make a classic ‘patsy walker’ one from her comic way back when, before she ever became a superhero.

    Is this vault information correct?  It is pretty different from past/current 80 item vaults for PVE.  Is this the new reward structure for all PVEs moving forward?  Or just new releases?  Or just this event?

    Could we please get some clarification?

    As I look at her Purple and red put together I think this will be a great combo.  I see this as more of a PVE than PVP.  As I am playing against mindless ones being able up all the special tiles then destroy that row will be awesome.

    with PVP as a 5* player she can help against BRB teams lining up special tiles, but she does not have a natural 5* partner,  maybe Kitty Pride but that will be slow to get the strike tiles going.  I think she can be a very good 3rd with Kitty and BRB in sim.

    overall I think 3,5,5 would work best

    Rescue and Patsy sounds interesting.

    That's a good one: Rescue turns all the rest of enemy special tiles red at the bottom and gain critical tile. On the flip side, you miss out on potential cascades and match-4 that give you other colour aps.

    As long as there are six enemy special tiles of the same colour, players are guaranteed at least a match-3, a potential match-4 and a rare chance of match 5 after using her purple. This reminds me of one of my favourite 3* in PvEs: Patch. This brings me to another character: Sabretooth. Finally, it brings me to Kaecilius.

    I'll try out Patch, Hellcat and a third that I can't think of now against Kaecilius in the future. I'll use Patch/Hellcat/Sabretooth just to watch some art of feline destruction: Fire Patch's green twice, followed by Hellcat's purple. You Shoulda Run.

    Rescue’s blue is expensive without a battery; she is fun with brb/Carbage for that reason.

    Red. You can do a lot of shenanigans with targeted row destruction.
