    oh wow.

    He sounds pretty legit. 5/5/3 and he'll be an awesome partner for Beta Ray Bill.
  • HoundofShadowHoundofShadow Posts: 4,815 Chairperson of the Boards
    Wow, his abilities are awesome. That's an easy build of 5/5/3 and BRB/Polaris/Beast for the win.  :D

    Am I reading this right... If it stacks like sighclops does then that's 1,710% increase for 30 black ap, that means his blue match damage would be 145,350 per tile
  • Pantera236Pantera236 Posts: 114 Tile Toppler
    That's not how sighclops works, his is capped out at 300%, and maybe there is something similar here but again not mentioned in the release notes
  • CannibalqueenCannibalqueen Posts: 191 Tile Toppler
    They sure are emphasizing match damage boosts recently.
    anyways I like this one, looks like another in a string of very fun 4*s

    Lol nevermind, I realized what I was doing wrong. That's still not bad, considering that is at level 270
  • wymtimewymtime Posts: 3,636 Chairperson of the Boards
    Question.  For his blue once championed at level 5 will give 3 attack tiles that due 9 damage?  Then those attack tiles will be reduced by 5% because of his black.

    the passive on his blue is awesome, but the active is only to activate his passive.  

    For his black I do want to see his match damage with 30 black.

    his green looks weak.

    Please feed apocalypse please feed apocalypse please feed apocalypse...

    Looks fun. Special tiles seem weak but I guess they're just there to produce AP. 

    Will the blue (and black) only turn existing basic green/black into specials or any color tiles?
  • SnowcaTTSnowcaTT Posts: 3,461 Chairperson of the Boards
    Awesome, partners for BRB/Kitty/Polaris/Carnage at long last! They really needed the help.

    And in some serious question news: when are we getting the "Deal % damage for every special tile on the board" characters. Or "Destroy every special tile".

    2* Magneto could do that already, and he's even better. Buy 1 (destroy special tile) get 2 free (basic and teamup tile).

    What if Beast is actually a "replacement" for Polaris and they are planning to nerf her... 

    Instead of getting 3 more special tiles on the board, you get 3 ap in return and AI is the one controlling how much you can spam special tiles.

    Well everyone did complain there weren’t enough metas , there you go 
  • Michael1957Michael1957 Posts: 630 Critical Contributor
    Who’s the guy that makes up all the stupid names here for meta teams  ? I’d like to suggest Poleast to him 
  • tallemantalleman Posts: 440 Mover and Shaker
    Another good 4*. To bad they can't do a proper 5*

    This may be the protect generating X-person Magneto needs in his life; too bad this isn’t a 5*

    The oldest character without a feeder is Mister Sinister. The oldest mutant without a feeder is Havok. Being both a villain and a mutant, Apocalypse would fit best.

    Well he is the mind behind infinite apocalypse army. They are close.
    He looks real good of course. A real beast for to conquer battles in time(keyword: in time. Not like the broken meta couple AoE).

    By the fact he can pair well with any partner using special tiles, even Nico. I think he is funny to play and with polaris a good character to try scl10 for 4* players. 
    My guess is his shield training will be not hard.
  • BlixTheFrogBlixTheFrog Posts: 105 Tile Toppler
    What’s really interesting there is he has VERY good chances of feeding Apocalypse.
