Hi Everyone (and Happy New Year!) - 

Just wanted to share that the next PVP Season (Soul) is scheduled to start on January 13 and not on January 6.  That means this offseason will be one week longer than usual.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

    If my calendar math is correct, this means both Echo AND Doc Ock will go into tokens next week, and we'll be back on a schedule where new 4* releases enter tokens a week after their new release events conclude?  

    If this is correct, then thank you for fixing the problem.

    I'm afraid of them skipping Echo as season rewards and giving Ock instead. My echo is still unchamped and she feeds Cyclops - my most undercovered five-star :'(

    Hopefully we get Balance of Power , Evergreen and a new 1 vs 1.

    Ock likely won't be in tokens since his release wasn't completed before last season end. if they stick to historical trends anwyays.

    Ock is in tokens too.

    Talking of the new season, I noticed Ikaris is the progression reward in Shield Simulator. Were we not expecting either Echo or Doc Ock? Did Ikaris not have a turn already?

    He was indeed the reward last season. I too was surprised we didn't get Echo or Doc Ock. By next season there will be another 4* released (maybe 2) so there is a chance these 2 never get a turn :(

    I assume it was an Eternals on D+ tie in to feature him one more time, but I was really hoping for Echo or Oc myself.

    I came here to say what everyone else already had. Ikaris is not what I was expecting!
  • skittledaddyskittledaddy Posts: 625 Critical Contributor
    Shh... Two more Ikaris covers and I'll finally fully-cover IHulk.

    But, no, I wasn't expecting him, either.
    I'll finish him via PVE long before I finish the season rewards.

    By the way the timing got wonky on character add, I'd anticipate a shorter than usual run for Echo to result from all of this. The same happened to a character last year, Morbius? I think all D3 needs to do to avoid this is to make the special seasons full-length instead of shortened (and personally I'd just nix the limited character season rewards in favor of new characters, maybe finally dump the limited distinction entirely).

    Funny fact is that echo was a new character along doc ock until few days, and now they aren't new, just on the same day.
  • ThaRoadWarriorThaRoadWarrior Posts: 7,064 Chairperson of the Boards
    That’s normal, characters released last season are “new” until the start of the next season
  • St_BernadusSt_Bernadus Posts: 408 Mover and Shaker
    Gotta say I agree that the 4 stars entering tokens based on season starts is increasingly a bad idea. It makes for wonkiness like this and uneven runs as featured character. There really is no reason to keep this institution except that it has been like that a long time. A very poor reason.
