    I love some BOP. Glad to see it back again.  
  • liminal_ladliminal_lad Posts: 246 Tile Toppler
    I'm not really chasing any of these covers. This might be a nice break to play a little less seriously while we await the next 5 star. Although boosted 5-star wasp is always fun. :)
  • HoundofShadowHoundofShadow Posts: 5,595 Chairperson of the Boards
    I just noticed that Bagman is also boosted as part of the Fantastic Four. It's something I just realised even though I've played for 4 years. This brings me to one thing: none of the F4 is a 5*. Time for one this year, perhaps?

    Probably will have to wait till FF enter the MCU, so they can use the actor's likeness instead of a comic version.

    I can see from the PVP list that for the 5* shards we are jumping from Iron Man to Yelena.
    I was just waiting the Jean Grey shards to champ her...

    Is this jump normal? I think that for a certain number of past weeks we had the "featured" 5* following the alphabetical order.
    Is there somewhere a list for the featured 5* in PVP?
  • SekiliciousSekilicious Posts: 1,116 Chairperson of the Boards
    Yay! Polaris week! I mean Balance of Power. I imagine I will regret my decision to jump to 5* MMR this week.  
  • entrailbucketentrailbucket Posts: 1,704 Chairperson of the Boards
    Having 5* MMR in balance of power is a good thing.  550 5* are so much worse than 550 4* that anyone using a 5* team is a much easier match.

    I’m pretty certain they put her in the rewards because the next event is I, Spy, the Black Widow-themed event, where she will presumably be featured.

    The Hydra Stomper is featured again?? This will be the 7th time around by my count.

    Someone who knows the next 5 make a semi plausible “guess”. Half mutant covers loads of ground in Marvel.

    Go into the "What's new" thread. There's lots of guesses there, and even lots of accusations of data mining (but how would they know unless they were data mining too?)

    I'm sticking with Omega Red - Half Mutant, Half Cyborg, all next 5*

  • Captain_Trips88Captain_Trips88 Posts: 147 Tile Toppler
    I guess if you keep guessing him every time then eventually you'll be right lol.

    It worked for Dazzler!
  • entrailbucketentrailbucket Posts: 1,704 Chairperson of the Boards
    The real question is, if you keep guessing Omega Red after Omega Red is released, will every new character be Omega Red?

    *The year 2032

    MPQ. New 8* star character clue "He's red and has tentacles"

    MPQ Players: It has to be Omega Red finally!

    MPQ:  Here he is, our 5th version of Shuma Gorath only he's red this time!

    That’s ridiculous statement and even the Mod made it that if you accuse someone you are incriminating yourself. I know the next 3 characters. How does that make me a data miner? There are discord group, line groups and even Facebook pages that share this info and guess what 99.99% of the hundreds of people that know this info aren’t data miners.

    Most of us are classy enough to not ruin it for the rest of you by trying to be smart and making guesses out of nowhere.

    A stopped clock has carbonadium tentacles twice a day, as I always say.

    As someone ignorant of the computer terminology, could someone please explain what this date a minoring is.

    Maybe I should have put a smiley because I was being snarky not serious (I did see the mod comment). Sorry if you took it as an affront Tony. I can neither confirm nor deny whether or not I'm in any similar rooms or groups that may or may not have shared information that may or may not have been data mined. You're right, accepting stolen merchandise is not the same as stealing it yourself ;)

    See what I did there?
