    They let the hamster die... :/

    Hamster worked for Demi.

    The hamster is running again. It appears they're resetting the event as Webbed Wonder no longer shows up in the game

    The former studio forgot the hamster and now is unfeed, escaped his jail, and is running wildly across the buttons seeking revenge.

    I am completely out of the loop. What is this Schrodinger's hamster yall speak of?

    The Hamster.

    For now it seems like they've got an intern spinning it manually until the Hamster is retrieved or replaced.

    It's hulkling, previewable in game with the webbed wonder event. I wonder if the hulkling support will be equipable to hulkling.
    Good catch! Hulkling is indeed our next character as his character information was shown while the incorrect event popped up earlier today (and quickly replaced).  We will share all the details about Hulkling in our character announcement going out tomorrow.

    Ok, I shoulda guessed, I generally know my tropes, but I got caught on a thought loop, worrying about an office pet hamster that Demi left behind and uncared for or something haha. Thank you for setting my mind at ease.

    Good thing they no longer have a Cobra in the office or I'd get worried about the hamster!

    Howard rolled a natural 20 on his Investigation roll and sleuthed out the next new character's identity early. Thanks to the Duck Detective (ducktective?), we can reveal the identity of our next character, the Young Avenger, Hulkling!

    Does the second part of his green destroy (up to) 18 surrounding tiles,  18 random tiles or 2 3X3 block of tiles? The maximum number of tiles that can surround a tile is 8. If we extend one tile further, it would be 16. I'm still trying to get used to the new wordings.

    Also, when Hulkling's abilities were accidentally made available in game, the sentence structure for his yellow power was really off. It's totally different from the reveal that we have now. Just wondering if the accident preview was a "draft" version of Hulkling's abilities or the accident preview will be rolled out as it was. If so, there was also grammatical error for his green power.

    We work on characters literally up to the last minute before they release which includes grammar and continuity checks, which Hulkling was and is still going through. 

    As for the destruction, it chooses random tiles directly around the Smash tiles. Since there needs to be 3+, there are a minimum of 15 tiles surrounding them and a maximum of up to 32. The ability will choose from among those tiles to destroy. Edit: I guess technically you could have 3 in 3 of the corners, making 9 tiles minimum. In that case, those 9 would be destroyed.

    Glad to know those were drafts.  

    I forgot there would be three Smash tiles. I love tile destruction abilities, so I'll wait for shield training to see how it looks like in practice.

    @IceIX - Is there a mistake on 'Into the Fray'? It says he does 40% more damage. Then with 3 covers it says 40% more damage and 5 covers 50% more damage.

    Is it meant to say 40% then 45% at 3 covers then 50% at 5 covers? Or is it mean to be cumulative extra percentage so at 1 cover it's 40% more, at 3 covers it's 40% + 40% more (+80%) and 5 covers it's 40% + 40% + 50% (+130%)?

    P.S. That Yellow skill, Hardened Spikes is going to be quite powerful if he's tanking in 4* land because of the clap back 1200 damage every time he takes damage.

    His yellow is a mix of 5* Moon Knight's green and Echo's purple. Bring two airborne/invisible character if you want him to tank.

    His active yellow is crazy for any special tiles team. He fortifyes and increases special tiles by 100%.
    There is no other 4* who can perform such a fine refinement. And on 5* land only sersi, still after sersi hulkling yellow could be great too.

    So we now know it is Hilkling officially but the updated first post does not mention the support Hulkling...can you equip Hulkling to Hulkling? How does this work with a support now a character in the game?
