    Yeah last one was Monkey, now it's Wong's turn.
    It just looks bad because they're constantly one release behind.

    True but I'm surprised they didn't skip Wong for Kang. I> @ShionSinX said:

    Colleen was cut off from the rotation at least twice now, and next latest rotation (after EIGHT classics in a row) will start with Namora. I guess 4* rotation will be shortened again and rotate a couple of them at once and shes gonna lose about 8~10 covers total in rewards (for SCL9).

    This is a good point. I was just thinking about how I haven't had a chance to use my champed Colleen.

    @IceIX is it too late to switch Namora for Colleen? We've had a ton of time with Namora already.

    I second this. I was really excited for Colleen bc she feeds Shang and my 4* Danny only has 6 covers. Would love to see her more in rotation.

    It's noticeable because I've been shargeting other 4*s for a while rather than champing Colleen (SC is already one of my higher 5s). Normally she would be champed organically by now but even M'Baku has more covers, thanks to a random HT pull.

    They also gave out like 50 M'Baku covers through EOTS.

    Namora and Abomination have both been shorted a run as a PVE 4E, from the mistaken Reptil/Doop/Deathlok run. For folks who don't PVP, that leaves each of them short of expectation.

    What I'd like to see happen right now is Namora for Hearts of Darkness (out of Latest 4E after that), Abomination starting 3/23, "Half at Fault" for the event after (as new release demands), then Colleen, then M'Baku, filler Classic, then pick up the L3C2 rotation with Colleen, M'Baku, "Half at Fault" in whatever order, adjusted as necessary for the April 4* release.

    Colleen might have been shorted out completely at this point, as shes already in the banner for Classic Legends token. The event after WW might be her last featured one, who knows.

    Reptil and Doop made two (maybe three in Reptil's case?) appearances in the rotation after they've left latest status which doesnt helps the schedule at all.

    No Bagman or Spider-Ham pvps around April's Fools? Isn't that usually a thing?

    I think those would be likely to appear on the April post.

    Oooh, just saw Crystal is boosted from Thursday, just in time as I just champed her! Yay!

    Engineering fixes for various "Away" mechanics issues affecting Kang and Wong (and future characters)

    Hmm...so are we to assume that future characters will also have the "Away" ability?!?!?

    Was looking at my notes this morning and realized that we started hearts of darkness on the 20th last year as well.

    Looks like we get a day off before the next PVE.

    And full overlap with the boss event.
    Again.
    Engagement metrics must look great, for this to constantly happen now.

    Oof, did DST break the server or something?

    Please stop adjusting the schedule, and just let it be. I just want event everyday that I can play. I don’t care if boss event runs with other PVE!

    I don’t like when a PvE event isn’t running.
    Is this going to be a thing moving forward?

    Agreed. This didn’t used to be an issue.

    While i never minded that happening, the calendar is in error as the first post with the updated PvE events says Webbed Wonder ends on the 31st so it barely runs concurrent with the boss by a day. Whether or not they’re running another PvE directly after it remains to be seen since there’s nothing that’s been officially updated for April as of yet so we’ll have to wait till the end of the week to see if that’s the case or not.

    I don't get the point of that calendar picture if we can never trust it.
